Nocturnal animals sleep during the daytime, whereas (DỈURNAL) animals are awake during the day and they (SLEEP) at night. Animals that are active at night tend to have (SENSITIVE) hearing and smell, and they may have (EXCEPTIONAL) eyesight. Nocturnality allows animals to hunt for prey without having to (CONFLICT) with predators that are active during daylight hours.

I think both compete and conflict must be acceptable for question 5.

Please help me

In one of the Simon's essays I read the sentence: There are AT LEAST AS MANY celebrities whose accomplishments make them excellent role models for young people. The problem is that I couldnt understand entirely the part that I wrote in capitals. Please who can explain it in a bit different way?

Diurnal
Sleep
Sensitive
Exceptional
Compete

@Shakhzod
At least as many is the exaggeration of amount.
There are a lot of, numerous celebrities whose achievements make them excellent role models for young people

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

diurnal
sleep
sensitive
exceptional
compete*

*Most people chose 'conflict', but in the verb form 'to conflict' usually means 'to be incompatible' (e.g. the date of the celebration conflicted with a business meeting that I had to attend).

It is much more natural to use 'compete' in the summary above.

Hi Simon,

Could you please explain why you chose sensitive not exceptional for num 3 and exceptional not sensitive for num 4?

Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you!
