DISCUSSION: Lines 3-8 tell us the main point of the passage: we’ve discovered the platypus hunts prey underwater, using its bill. The rest of the passage supports this conclusion.
- Examples aren’t given. Instead, the results of studies are discussed. Studies aren’t quite the same thing as examples. An example is usually one among many. The two scientists studies are our only evidence that the platypus hunts with its bill.
- CORRECT. The passages lays out its position at the start, then gives evidence to support it.
- This is a bit different from B. The conclusion is supported by evidence from studies. An “argument” could just mean logic, but without any facts.
- What’s the opposing view? The author doesn’t mention any.
- What’s the amendment? The argument sticks to its conclusion from lines 3-8.
