Paragraph 1, for example, introduces the theory that tornadic waterspouts might be responsible
for frog and fish storms, and it ends by discussing the differences between a tornado and a waterspout.
Paragraph 2 then jumps right into the scintillating details of how waterspouts are formed.
After that, Paragraph 3 brings tornadoes back into the mix and begins by discussing how
tornadoes and waterspouts are similar.
Paragraph 4 then talks about how all reports of frogs and fish raining from the sky are
Which sorta makes us question why anybody bothered writing this article, but OK.
Given that paragraph rundown, we're opting for choice (D) on this one.
Paragraph 1 ends by talking about the difference between tornadoes and waterspouts, while Paragraph
3 begins by discussing their similarities.
There's a logical progression between 1 and 3, so there's no reason for Paragraph 2 to keep them apart.
