brown bears Twenty eight Sample on northern both fourteen All

00:23

right as used in line to current most nearly means

00:27

What and hear The potential answers are Unfortunately there isn't

00:33

an answer choice for well informed or in the know

00:36

so we can assume that the word current isn't in

00:38

reference to a bunch of polar bears who get a

00:40

newspaper every morning and watched cnn In fact if we

00:44

read the sentence carefully it becomes clear that the word

00:46

isn't in reference to polar bears at all But to

00:49

the hybridization of polar bears is actually a big difference

00:52

Okay so now the question is how did the writer

00:54

intend to describe this hybridization I uh you know getting

00:58

it on was he calling it see moving water Well

01:03

that would be pretty abstract of him Moving water is

01:05

one definition of the word current but it doesn't work

01:09

in this instance it's not even the right part of

01:11

speech though we consent options a gently down three Did

01:14

he mean to describe it as be slowly developing Well

01:17

that it makes sense Although it's not really supported by

01:19

anything else in the paragraph There's not really Any talk

01:22

about how long this process is taken So maybe there

01:25

is a better choice option D sort of fits into

01:28

the same box the hybridization could be Described as accidental

01:31

but once again it would come a bit out of

01:34

the blue really it sounds more like the way one

01:37

of the polar bears might defend himself to his girlfriend

01:41

Option A however leaves no room for doubt there's a

01:44

huge emphasis in this passage on the idea that these

01:47

air studies based on present day findings the first sentence

01:51

mentions modern polar bears and it's probably not referring to

01:54

those who decorate their homes with contemporary flourishes And the

01:58

lassen says that the observed hybridization it is a recent

02:01

phenomenon so because it's apparent that the writer really really

02:05

really wants has to understand that this happened Basically yesterday

02:09

Option a is the best choice All of this talk

02:11

polar bear as well You know i was making us

02:13

hungry for an eskimo pie all right that ruined our 00:02:16.553 --> [endTime] appetite Yeah no
