for question1, why option c not e.
i request expert for question 3, to highlight the word in paragraph, so it will be easy to find word.



Hi void!

For Q-1, assuming that you eliminated all the other option and are left with option C & E

Main idea

This question requires that we understand the fundamental purpose of the passage, which is a function of both its structure and content. The first paragraph of the passage notes a turning point in the history of biology. In the late nineteenth century, biologists made a shift away from historical explanation of biology. However, as the passage continues, it addresses the importance of historical explanation in biology throughout the nineteenth century.

1. The primary purpose of the passage is to

C. discuss the importance of historical explanation in the thinking of nineteenth century biologists-
E. evaluate the way in which the concept of heredity altered the use of historical explanation by nineteenth-century biologists-The final sentence of the passage suggests that the concept of heredity seemed to complete the argument for a historical explanation of evolutionary events. However, this is just one part of the passage's discussion of historical explanation in biology in the nineteenth century.

Let me know if I can help you further!

Hope this helps!
