## anonymous one year ago Its profundity though it should be such as is represented can have little part in this exemption; for though deep wells are not frozen, because their water is secluded from the external air, yet where a wide surface is exposed to the full influence of a freezing atmosphere, I know not why the depth should keep it open. Natural philosophy is now one of the favourite studies of the Scottish nation, and Lough Ness well deserves to be diligently examined. **question inside!

In using the term "natural philosophy" in the last sentence, the author most likely refers to: A. instinctive knowledge. B. science. C. religious thought. D. Classical writing. E. philosophical thought. **i think it is E, but I really am not very sure! :/

@Whitemonsterbunny17 :)

3. Whitemonsterbunny17

Which ones can we for sure eliminate?

4. anonymous

science and classical writing?

5. anonymous

oh wait and religious thought? it may be science right?

6. anonymous

or are all three checked off? :/

7. Whitemonsterbunny17

I think we can eliminate Classical writing, yeah.

8. Whitemonsterbunny17

Nothing really refers to instinctive knowledge, either, so we can eliminate that one also.

9. anonymous

ooh okie! how can we narrow it down more?

10. Whitemonsterbunny17

Well, does it talk about anything religious at all?

11. anonymous

no, so that is out!

12. anonymous

not sure about the others though :/

13. Whitemonsterbunny17

While it does have to do with science, there are three key words which eliminate either science or philosophical thought.. and those words are "I know not". With those words, what's your guess?

14. anonymous

ohh okay, so it would be philosophical thought?

15. Whitemonsterbunny17

That's correct! ^.^

16. anonymous

yay!! thank you!:)
