So, what's this question asking? We're here to find which of these 4 options is most supportive of Scientist 2's viewpoint.
Scientist 2 seems to be pretty concerned with modeling.
So which answer has something to do with modeling? Option A says locations of python habitats
are overestimated which doesn't really jive with how Scientist 2 just said the models
are very accurate. B says modeling is an important predictor,
and goes on to sell it by saying the study took into account both rainfall and temperature changes.
That sounds a whole lot like what Scientist 2 just said.
Let's hang onto this one, but we'll check the others.
Option C says his team's predictions show a decrease in python habitat but wait, that
sounds more like Scientist 1 talking!
Option D says snakes need a marsh-like habitat to thrive in new areas. That may be technically
true, but it's not the answer we're looking for in the context of the question.
So, it looks like B is our answer. B as in beware of snakes.
A it is! A, as in Aaaaaah, snakes!
