right Baroness all right we're done What is the most

00:32

effective substitution for the underlined part of sentence Eight and

00:37

here the potential answers they are on history Okay so

00:42

the powers that be test central are telling us that

00:45

the word weird is just too weird for the sentence

00:49

to figure out the best replacement word We need to

00:51

know what the author is getting at with this sentence

00:55

If we re read the paragraph we can quickly get

00:57

an idea of where the author is heading Basically it

01:01

didn't seem totally crazy for the nineteen eighty two film

01:03

to show the dolphin being rescued because there was debate

01:07

as to whether the dow fam really died of tuberculosis

01:09

back in the day Some thought it was actually possible

01:13

that he was rescued and his captors made up the

01:15

tv story to cover up for their bad jail's keeping

01:19

skills Well we'll need to keep that in mind as

01:21

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

01:24

first of all the word bizarre might sound a little

01:27

more fancy than weird but the two words mean pretty

01:30

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

01:32

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

01:35

same goes for option deke strange bizarre weird They're all

01:39

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

01:42

us on this one then it's best that we keep

01:44

them happy otherwise they might send the wrong we don't

01:47

like the drones They mean answer c suggests the word

01:50

inaccurate which sort of fits unfortunately sort of isn't good

01:55

enough The choice makes it sound like the rescue was

01:57

totally fictional with no connections a real history But we

02:01

know that at the time some people did still suspect

02:03

that the dow fan could conceivably have been rescued maybe

02:07

not by a guy wearing a funny wig but still

02:09

you know the best answer is b The point here

02:12

is that at the time the movie was made it

02:14

didn't seem quite as unhitch historical as it does now

02:18

You know because now due to the magic of dna

02:21

testing we know that the kid did die horribly of 00:02:24.25 --> [endTime] tuberculosis Viva la revolucion
