Easier said than done these guys would even disagree on what to have for lunch.
Not to worry, we'll use the process of elimination. Option B's going to be a bad choice.
B says the study was thorough, but Scientist 1 said in no uncertain terms that the study was a joke.
Scientist 1 will also disagree with option D.
They think that the python is only suited to habitats in Florida and Texas, so the python
won't be found up the east coast. Now we're down to A and C, and Scientist 2
will have to disagree with one of them. Option A says the study overestimates the population
of python habitats, which is about as far as you can get from the viewpoint that the
study's model was accurate. It's not A. And that leaves us with option C-- the intrusion
of invasive wildlife can be a severe problem to a native ecosystem. And indeed, both scientists
end their passages saying that invasive species are a problem.
C is our answer, as in the old joke: What should you do if you "C" a snake in the bathroom?
Wait, til he's finished.
