|ACT Science||Research Summary Passage|
|Product Type||ACT Science|
And here are the potential answers...
Figure A, being the top half of the chart we just saw, has 4 main peaks.
The end of the passage describes what each of those peaks represents,
so it should just be a simple matter of matching them.
So let's go.
Option A: Z-9-tricosene <<try-co-zeen>>. Try-co-say that 5 times fast.
Looking back at our list in the passage, it’s definitely in there. Sorry, A.
Option B: Tricosane. Try-co-say… okay, sorry.
Looks like tricosane is in the passage, too.
So long, B.
Option C: Z-9-pentacosene <<pen-tuh-CO-zeen>>.
Yeah, that’s there too. That just leaves…
<<interrupted by screeching hawk>> Oh goodness. I hope he’s okay.
Option D: Pentatricosane <<pen-tuh-try-CO-sane>>.
In the passage we see the similar-sounding pentacosane <<pen-tuh-CO-sane>>.
Not the same, though.
That means our answer is D. <<distant hawk screech>>
Aaaand it’s time to get out of here.
