a look at the underlined portion below which choice best

00:26

matches the tone in the rest of the passage and

00:30

here the potential answers aren't no change proclaimed well apparently

00:34

this mr white guy saw a ghost at the same

00:38

time he finished his space walk because we can't rightly

00:41

think of any other instance in which someone would have

00:44

a reason to shriek Either that or someone trampled the

00:47

azaleas in his garden for the fourth time this week

00:49

But yeah general astronauts especially aren't in the habit of

00:53

shrieking that's kind of one of the first things they

00:56

teach you at nasa dot com So we're going to

00:58

need to replace this word with a better choice But

01:01

what word should be be proclaimed Ah yes Here ye

01:06

here Ye i has had a greatest adventure on yonder

01:09

planet Now we can just see him holding open the

01:12

scroll there so nah proclaimed is a bit too official

01:15

for this occasion and doesn't really tell us anything about

01:17

mr white's emotional state So we hereby proclaim option b

babbling state of mine like the time santa brought you

01:30

that ten speed bike you wanted and no one could

01:33

get you to shut up about it But does it

01:35

really match the tone of the rest of the passage

01:38

Where has to be more of an emotional connection to

01:40

the experience mr white just had rather than merely indicating

01:44

that while he like to hear the sound of his

01:46

own voice shrieking what else you got Option c gushed

01:50

Well it says sort of the same thing is babbled

01:52

but the word also tells us that he's uber happy

01:55

or thrilled about something and wants to tell everyone all

01:58

about it So like a pipe that's just sprung a

02:01

leak Mr white is unable to keep all that bubbling

02:05

us inside so see it is and we'll shut up 00:02:08.11 --> [endTime] now when we feel like we're babbling
