works here Is that the killer whale All right we're

00:33

done What is the most effective substitution for the underlined

00:37

part of sentence Eight and hear the potential answers Okay

00:44

so the powers that be at test central are telling

00:47

us that the word weird is just too weird for

00:50

this sentence to figure out the best replacement word We

00:53

need to know what the author is getting at with

00:55

this sentence If we re read the paragraph we can

00:59

quickly get an idea of where the author is heading

01:02

Basically it didn't seem totally crazy for the nineteen eighty

01:05

two film to show the dolphin being rescued because there

01:08

was debate as to whether the dolphin really died of

01:11

tuberculosis back in the day Some thought it was actually

01:14

possible that he was rescued and his captors made up

01:17

the tb story to cover up for their bad jail

01:20

keeping Skills we'll need to keep that in mind as

01:23

we're digging for the right answer Let's nix choice a

01:27

first of all word bizarre might sound a little more

01:30

fancy than weird but the two words mean pretty much

01:33

the same thing if the powers that be don't like

01:35

that one well they won't like this one either same

01:38

goes for option d strange bizarre weird They're all synonyms

01:42

and the powers that be aren't gonna go with us

01:44

on this one and it's best that we keep them

01:46

happy otherwise they might send in drones Answer c suggests

01:49

the word inaccurate which sort of fits unfortunately sort of

01:55

ain't good enough choice makes it sound like the rescue

01:58

was totally fictional with no connection in the real history

02:01

but we know that at the time some people did

02:03

still suspect this is dao fan could conceivably have been

02:06

rescued maybe not by a guy wearing a funny wig

02:09

but still you know the best answer is to be

02:12

the point here is that at the time the movie

02:14

was made it didn't seem quite as unhitch historical as

02:17

it does now you know because now there's a magic

02:20

of dna testing We know that the kid did die 00:02:23.663 --> [endTime] horribly of tuberculosis Viva la revolucion Yeah like that
