00:33

captain willing captain william henry jacqueline in the context of

00:39

the passage the author's use of the phrase the snark

00:42

has had to call her navigators from the beach in

00:45

the first paragraph is used to convey the idea that

00:48

what and hear the potential answers All right remember Okay

00:55

so our attention's being directed a one line in particular

00:58

and we're being asked to determine why it's there but

01:01

what's it telling us what information are we supposed to

01:03

glean from it Where's the beef You know all the

01:06

important questions here's that line again the snark has had

01:09

to call her navigators from the beach Okay first of

01:11

all what's call Even if we didn't know the definition

01:14

of the word we should be able to get the

01:15

gist of it from the context Clues are narrator is

01:18

talking about the ship having a tough time hiring from

01:21

within all the men on board Already have positions So

01:25

when it comes to bringing navigators into the mix that

01:27

cruise forced a color or obtained from a larger group

01:30

any new talent from the beach e own Sure So

01:33

now that we have a rough idea of what it's

01:35

saying let's look over our answer choices A the expedition

01:39

was hastily put together in a crew chosen upon departure

01:42

Well they might have been in a hurry but we

01:44

sure weren't told about it If they were the paragraph

01:46

makes no reference to the speed with which the navigators

01:49

were selected Just that they weren't in house So next

01:53

how about sea expedition was under funded so they hired

01:56

an inexperienced crew We can gather from the rest of

01:59

the paragraph that this flock of doofus is or indeed

02:02

in experienced but again nothing about the expedition being underfunded

02:06

Far as we know these folks are swimming in the

02:08

blue Then there's d the expedition set sail from a

02:11

beach instead of a typical harbor No not necessarily Our

02:15

narrator isn't using the word beach literally but rather to

02:18

refer to everything that isn't ocean And besides it hardly

02:22

seems as if this line is focusing on their location

02:25

So option deacon shovel which means our answer is beat

02:28

The expedition selected crew members who were unattached to other

02:32

ships Yep these guys were land faring bums with no

02:35

better offers on the table Sounds like the makings of 00:02:38.083 --> [endTime] a killer resume Doesn't it You mom love
