Question:

Sentence 3 is reproduced here: But bees are dying out.
The writer is considering adding to the sentence. Considering the writer's tone and purpose, which of the following, if any, should the writer add to sentence 3?

A B. and that’s a real problem for the globe and for our way of life.
Explaination

Answer choice (B) is correct because it presents a strong transition into the next paragraph, in which the writer will discuss the consequences of bees going extinct. Although the paragraph does discuss people’s perception of bees, answer choice (C) is too glib for the end of the paragraph; it would undercut the message that the writer is working towards. While it’s possible that the writer would agree with answer choice (D), it doesn’t fit into this part of the passage.
