All right, in what context would you expect
to see this passage? And here are the potential answers.
[ mumbles ]
Let's get into it.
We can begin by eliminating option B. The Middle Ages
and the Middle East are not the same thing, people.
The only thing they have in common is the word "middle."
And it that weren't enough, this passage,
well, it might be about Middle Earth. That'd be kind of cool.
Yeah, after all, hobbits do love food.
Option C is the next to go.
Chronologically speaking, the 19th century was during the 1800s.
And the 1800s were definitely not the Middle Ages.
So it's pretty unlikely we'd find information about medieval food
in a novel about 19th century France.
We can eliminate option D, too.
Although the number of modern day fad diets is immense,
well, we've yet to hear of the medieval serf diet.
But maybe one day, right?
Well, but for now, we can safely get rid of D.
That makes option A the correct answer.
The passage is giving us specific information about
the day-to-day diet of common people during the Middle Ages.
And where might we find that?
Exactly - a book about the life
of medieval common people.
That might be a good place to start.
Now we're off to start our new diet.
We were thinking about going paleo, but, uh,
well, there's no way we're giving up potato chips.
