DISCUSSION: Honeybees are the only point in common between the two passages. This limits the parts of passage B that are relevant.
I reread lines 49-55. I remembered that paragraphs 2 and 3 of passage B talked about honeybees, but I also knew that Gould’s experiments with foragers in paragraph 3 weren’t mentioned in passage A.
Lines 49-55 talk about von Frisch’s discoveries, and they also mentioned that Wenner was wrong. Passage A appears to agree that Wenner was wrong (lines 23-29), and also mentioned Frisch’s work (lines 7-11).
- Both authors disagree with this. They believe that sounds are the source of honeybee directions.
- Passage B says that Wenner was wrong about odor! See lines 53-55.
- Passage A doesn’t mention any species other than honeybees.
- CORRECT. See lines 7-11 and lines 49-55.
- Neither passage mentions experienced vs. inexperienced foragers. This answer makes a distinction the passages didn’t make.
