Question 21. B
Question 22. C

Keywords in the transcript give me the answers above are:
Question 21.
Rosie listed 2 options, then Martin suggested the third. However, Martin talked to Rosie: "let’s go with your last suggestion." And the tutor agreed: "Good". => Rosie's second option, "a timeline to show when they lived, with illustrations", was chosen. => Answer B
Question 22.
"Tutor: So why was that [the tooth found by Russell Graham] significant?"
"Rosie: ... bones previously found ... were much less recent than that [the tooth]. So this was really amazing."
Regarding the meaning, A is much less recent than B = B is not as old as A.
=> The surprising fact is that the tooth was not as old as mammoth remains from elsewhere. => Answer C

Yes, it did. It's very helpful. I often underline many words when determining which are keywords. Through this article, I think I just need to focus on some words, the most relevant words. Thank you, Simon!

Yes, it's help us. Thank you. You are very helpful for us. 💐


B - timeline
C - not as old = recent
