Found in all the oceans of the world, including the Arctic Ocean, appendicularians tend to remain near the water's surface where the density of phytoplankton is greatest.

On the surface they have more food to feed.

E is the answer

There is no information in the passage that tells us that appendicularians are single celled. All other characteristics can be justified.

Actually I was confused between option B. Vegetarian and option D. single-celled. Can you please explain how VEGETARAIN is described in the passage?

Because they eat (plant plankton).

The 17th question kind of assumes the reader to know that artic is a cold place hence the cold waters. Doesn't it ?

No sir at all. The RC passages do not assume you know any scientific or history knowledge, or business.

You have to infer only and exclusively what is written in the passage

But then how do you conclude that appendicularians can tolerate frigid waters

17. It can be inferred from the passage that which of the following is true of appendicularians?

(A) They are exclusively carnivorous. " not supported by the passage"
(B) They have more than one method of obtaining food. "not stated"
(C) They can tolerate frigid water. "correct because of the line:Found in all the oceans of the world, including the Arctic Ocean""
(D) They can disguise themselves by secreting mucus. "not supported by the passage"
(E) They are more sensitive to light than are other zooplankton." no information"


No where in the passage it was mentioned that Arctic waters are frigid. Can we assume about this kind of outside information

Good question.

We can reach C as a correct answer even by POE. The other options are wrong or not mentioned in the passage at all.

However, in this case, I believe the fact that the Arctic ocean is frigid in not an assumption we make or information from the outside we bring into the passage but is a fact that is universally recognized.

I hope this helps

Yeah I checked other options as well which are nowhere and marked C, but got a doubt about this kind of questions to assume or not
