we learned that fear
All right, so we're looking for the word that replaces [music playing in the background]
"engenders." And here are the potential answers.
[ mumbles ]
All right. Well, to engender means
to create or produce, usually in a deep and meaningful context.
For example, you're probably not gonna [Man making a sandwich and not liking it]
engender yourself a sandwich, but
rom-coms might engender unrealistic expectations
for your love life. Let's start with A - prevents. [Man watching a Rom-com on TV]
Well, if you're preventing something, you're keeping it from happening,
like keeping your mom from cleaning your room.
And we know that to engender is [Mom cleaning her kids room]
to create something, not stop it,
so A isn't gonna work. [Kid grabbing her secret book from her mom]
Next up, C - substitutes.
To substitute means to exchange one thing for another,
like when your mom goes on a health bender and tries
to replace cheese with, uh, [Mom adding butternut squash to the pasta]
Her bowl of cheese-less lies
might engender nausea, but creating
and substituting are different things.
So then there's D - underestimates.
Well, an estimate is a quickly formed opinion [girl eating the butternut squash from the pasta]
on somebody or something, so when you
underestimate, you form an opinion that turns out
to be too, uh, low.
So, for example,
you might underestimate a mouth breather's
ability to be a good kisser. [Man and a Lady in a park on a blind date]
Underestimating could cause
a pleasant surprise, but it's definitely not the same as engendering.
Which leaves us with just B - causes.
To cause means to produce a result.
Sound familiar? Just like trying out that scene [a man and woman getting wet in the rain]
from The Notebook. It can cause
two severe cases of the flu
and it can also engender them. [Couple covered in blankets and thermometer in their mouth]
So the correct answer is B - causes.
And remember, the only way to keep your parents out of your stuff
is to let go of all earthly possessions. [girl throwing her book in the garbage]
