are only found in Texas and Florida?
And here are the potential answers…
So what’s this question asking? This one is more of an inference question than
anything else, so let’s take a look. Read between the lines of the question.
What does it mean if there are pets all around the United States,
but wild populations only exist in some parts of the country?
Who would benefit from that information?
Well, there must be a reason that wild populations tend to migrate to Texas and Florida.
There must be something about the habitats there that pythons, and many retirees, love.
Scientist 2 seems to think that snakes will eventually inhabit areas as far away
as New York, Washington, and so on. What about scientist 1?
He directly says that currently, there are only two places in the US that have a suitable climate for these snakes:
a region in southern Florida, and the southern part of Texas.
Seems like he would be more interested in the fact that wild pythons flourish in Florida and Texas.
So, that's it!
Option A’s our answer!
