All right, in what context would you expect

00:32

to see this passage? And here are the potential answers.

00:34

[ mumbles ]

00:40

Let's get into it.

00:41

We can begin by eliminating option B. The Middle Ages

00:44

and the Middle East are not the same thing, people.

00:46

The only thing they have in common is the word "middle."

00:49

And it that weren't enough, this passage,

00:51

well, it might be about Middle Earth. That'd be kind of cool.

00:54

Yeah, after all, hobbits do love food.

00:56

My precious.

00:57

Option C is the next to go.

00:59

Chronologically speaking, the 19th century was during the 1800s.

01:03

And the 1800s were definitely not the Middle Ages.

01:06

So it's pretty unlikely we'd find information about medieval food

01:09

in a novel about 19th century France.

01:11

We can eliminate option D, too.

01:13

Although the number of modern day fad diets is immense,

01:16

well, we've yet to hear of the medieval serf diet.

01:19

But maybe one day, right?

01:21

Well, but for now, we can safely get rid of D.

01:23

That makes option A the correct answer.

01:25

The passage is giving us specific information about

01:27

the day-to-day diet of common people during the Middle Ages.

01:30

And where might we find that?

01:32

Exactly - a book about the life

01:34

of medieval common people.

01:36

That might be a good place to start.

01:38

Now we're off to start our new diet.

01:40

We were thinking about going paleo, but, uh,

01:42

well, there's no way we're giving up potato chips.
