|ACT Science||Conflicting Viewpoint Passage|
|Product Type||ACT Science|
And here are the potential answers...
Once again, we want 2 out of 2 scientists to agree on something.
Option A... Auxin is important for creating the plant's pattern.
Be careful with this one...both scientists do mention auxin being important...but this
says that auxin is specifically important to plant patterns.
Scientist 1 said auxin is used for producing leaves,
and scientist 2 said auxin DOESN'T tell the plant where to grow leaves.
So that's a no on A.
Now for option B... stress is important for patterning.
Nah. Scientist 1 is entirely stress-free. Well, his paragraph is, anyway.
What about C?
Well, none of the scientists mention plants having ugly patterns...
...let's come back to this one.
Option D. Leaves and flowers are patterned by different mechanisms.
Uh, no. Let's just take a look at Scientist 1's paragraph.
It says that plant patterning is dependent ENTIRELY on auxin.
Well, last time we checked, the entirety of a plant included both the leaves and flowers,
so Scientist 1 would have to disagree with this statement.
Which brings us back to option C... by process of elimination.
Both scientists spent all this time describing the wonders of plant patterning
and if there's one thing these guys know, it's amazing patterns.
Check out those ties.
