the underlined portion below if at all conditions they faced

00:23

in infancy And here the potential answers Okay so this

00:28

is excerpted from something called bad news for baboons This

00:33

doesn't have anything to do with their careless derrieres does

00:36

it All right there are children around Can't you put

00:39

a bandage and some gauze on that thing All right

00:42

So according to this excerpt anyway the bad news is

00:44

that baboon population is taking a nosedive thanks to a

00:47

bad drought considering the drought california's been dealing with it

00:51

makes you wonder if that's why we don't see more

00:53

baboons in hollywood way Take that back The question wants

00:58

to know how we should write the last sentence Researchers

01:01

looked at how conditions they faced in infancy played a

01:05

role in coping with the drought wealth we know that

01:33

deal with in their infancy The researchers might have had

01:36

some rough childhoods but we're not really here to play

01:39

Psychiatrist soc is out Next up the the infant baboons

01:43

Ah here is that mention of baboons we were looking

01:46

for Unfortunately we doubt that older baboons are relying on

01:49

a crack team of baby baboons with extensive drought experience

01:52

to get them through the tough times This phrase still

01:55

isn't quite saying what we needed to so d is

01:57

out as well and here we go b b suggests

02:00

that we change that part too Conditions the baboons faced

02:03

in infancy Yep it's The conditions they faced and struggled

02:07

through that prepared them for later tribulations So b is

02:11

the one Sadly nothing can prepare them for catching a 00:02:14.45 --> [endTime] glimpse of their face in a rain puddle
