Can you please explain why doesn't C. (They are governed mostly by seemingly trivial events, such as the flapping of a butterfly's wings) apply for the 6th question ?

A better understanding is that the butterfly causes uncertainty about the precise state of the air. This microscopic uncertainty grows until it encompasses even hurricanes

From this part of the passage, you can infer that the butterfly bite is not trivial. It is given to show you a particular effect in terms of future events.

So, C is wrong.

Hi Supreeth27112

From the Passage - According to the popular interpretation of the "Butterfly effect", a butterfly flapping its wings caused hurricanes. A better understanding is that the butterfly causes uncertainty about the precise state of the air.

Now a butterfly flapping its wing is not equal to the "flight path" of the butterfly, the question is deliberately using closely related words handpicked from the passage to use your short term memory against you, but if you slow it down and really read through the options and refer back to the passage, this difference will become clear to you.

Hope it helps
