All right, this time we're looking for a word that means something similar to "moving

00:25

from post to post."

00:26

So whatever this word is, it's really hard to pin down...

00:29

(A) is a definite no, because "native" means that someone is from a specific place.

00:34

(B) doesn't fit either. "Settled" is the opposite of what we're looking for.

00:38

(D) is off the list for the same reason. Someone who's "steady" wouldn't exactly move

00:42

around a lot.

00:43

(C) isn't what we're looking for. Some might think it's "boring" to move around a lot...

00:48

...but it'd be a strange fit for this sentence. "Nomadic" means to move frequently without

00:54

settling down permanently in one place. (E) is the correct answer.
