【OG20-P580-669题】Rainwater contains hydrogen of a heavy form called deuterium. The deuterium content of wood reflects the deuterium content of rainwater available to trees during their growth. Wood from trees that grew between 16,000 and 24,000 years ago in North America contains significantly more deuterium than wood from trees growing today. But water trapped in several North American caves that formed during that same early period contains significantly less deuterium than rainwater in North America contains today.Which of the following, if true, most helps to reconcile the two findings?
【OG20-P607-754题】Vargonia has just introduced a legal requirement that student-teacher ratios in government-funded schools not exceed a certain limit.

Which of the following, if true, would most help to explain NorthAir's decision in light of its objectives?

【OG20-P602-739题】Between 1980 and 2000 the sea otter population of the Aleutian Islands declined precipitously. There were no signs of disease or malnutrition, so there was probably an increase in the number of otters being eaten by predators. Orcas will eat otters when seals, their normal prey, are unavailable, and the Aleutian Islands seal population declined dramatically in the 1980s. Therefore, orcas were most likely the immediate cause of the otter population decline.Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?
