...we're looking at you, Lois Lane...
...we can still eliminate some of our answer choices.
The explorers aren't neglecting anything; if they were, they'd be pretty unsuccessful explorers...
Therefore we can cross off (D). The explorers aren't measuring the depth
of the ocean in an irrational way, and they aren't being particularly guarded either...
So (E) is off the list.
They're also not being manipulative...
Making (C) a no-go. Since they're doing something that no one's
done before... in a way that's not too extreme...
(B) is the correct answer.
We should all be grateful that our early explorers were intrepid and not... totally insane.
