Question 3The operative words are "passage suggests".
Tip: Make certain to choose an answer choice that is responsive to the specific question asked.
Remember that during laboratory dives the seal exhibits the same physiological response as it does on the long dives ("in the deep").
See lines 9 - 10. " ... ensuring that the seal's blood remains concentrated near those organs most crucial to its ability to function underwater."
Compare And Contrast The Answer Choices:
(A) Reject. This is the opposite. The organs necessary to navigate underwater do not change to resort (notice the word in the answer choice is "revert") to an anaerobic mechanism.
(B) Reject. First, this choice provides false information. I.e. the change to the anaerobic mechanism is not at the end of the dive. Second, this choice does not provide an answer to the question asked.
(D) Reject. See lines 15 - 20. First, this is not consistent with the information in the passage. Second, it does not answer the precise question asked.
(E) Reject, First, this is false. The seal is not submerged for short periods of time. Second, this choice is not responsive to the specific question asked.
(C) This is the best answer. It is a paraphrase of the information presented in lines 14 - 19 and is responsive to the precise question asked.
