--- Seeking and to find - same meaning


B) alternative explanations for the process of evolution, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck repeated his initial experiment on mollusks once in every 4 weeks but received exactly the same results in a row 3 times.
same results in a row 3 times.- awkward construction

C) alternative explanations for the process of evolution, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck repeated his initial experiment on mollusks every 4 weeks but received the same results 3 times in a row. - Correct

D) alternative explanations for the process of evolution, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck repeated his initial experiment on mollusks every 4 weeks but received exactly the same results 3 times in a row.
received exactly the same results - exactly and same denote the same meaning.

E) alternative explanations for the process of evolution, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck repeated his initial experiment on mollusks every 4 weeks but he received the same identical results 3 times in a row.

Between E and C...IMO C...

A) to find alternative explanations for the process of evolution, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck repeated his initial experiment on mollusks once in every 4 weeks (once 4 weeks = every 4 weeks) but received exactly the same results 3 times in a row(hmmm redundant exactly = same result)

B) alternative explanations for the process of evolution, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck repeated his initial experiment on mollusks once in every 4 weeks (once 4 weeks = every 4 weeks) but received exactly the same results (hmmm redundant exactly = same result) in a row 3 times.

C) alternative explanations for the process of evolution, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck repeated his initial experiment on mollusks every 4 weeks but received the same results 3 times in a row. "Correct"

D) alternative explanations for the process of evolution, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck repeated his initial experiment on mollusks every 4 weeks but received exactly the same results 3 times in a row.

E) alternative explanations for the process of evolution, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck repeated his initial experiment on mollusks every 4 weeks but he received the same identical results 3 times in a row.

Agree with C

Just knew that "exactly the same" is redundant. Great Q. Thanks!

Very unusual question. it is rare to see a question in which, we can write off four choices on a single factor such as redundancy. If one gets this question like this, then it is danger signal about your standing in the test.
