Would this essay successfully fulfill the writer's goal?
And here are your potential answers...
So the question is basically asking whether or not this essay helps debunk popular myths about spiders.
We like the one where the spider rides a flying horse to Mt. Olympus.
Hm, maybe we’re confused on that one.
(D) is incorrect because the type of spider mentioned doesn't have much to do with what
the question is asking.
(D), we’re seriously going to need you to try a little harder next time.
Choice (B) is wrong as well.
The writer comes in with a pretty extensive knowledge of spiders.
He or she spends most of the essay showing off that knowledge,
not learning new things. We wonder if that kind of knowledge is impressive on dates.
Option (A) claims that this essay does a great job of debunking the idea that spiders often
get trapped in their own webs.
However, the essay actually points out how most people know that spiders don’t normally
get caught in their webs, and they wonder how spiders manage this trick.
This is pretty much exactly what choice (C) tells us, making (C) the correct answer.
It’s widely known that any spider who reveals his secret will be
expelled from the sacred order of arachnids.
