Since there is no precedent, it means that Inuit print making is not as traditional as carving. For the first blank, choose option A. For the second blank, give in. It is said that the two are different, but there is still some connection between the two. For the third blank, choose option D. According to the comparison before and after but, paper and drawing tools were unknown until introduced by early explorers and missionaries, which means that carving materials are the opposite of unknown. Therefore, choose option G for the third blank. traditional means traditional, affinity means closely related, and availability means locally available. Note that affinity in this question should not be understood as "like".

Second blank: Concession. The two are compared before, so there is still some connection between the two. For the second blank, choose option D;

For the third blank, according to the comparison before and after but, paper and drawing tools were unknown until introduced by early explorers and missionaries, which means that carving materials is the opposite of unknown. Therefore, choose option G. traditional, affinity is closely related, availability locally. Note that affinity in this question should not be understood as attraction.

【Sentence Translation】Although Inuit printing is closely related to carving on bones or antlers, facial patterns on clothing, and inlaid animal skins, Inuit printing is less traditional than carving because it does not have a lot of historical precedents. For example, carving materials such as stone, bone, antler, wood and ivory were locally available, but paper and painting materials were unknown until they were introduced by early explorers and missionaries.
