hello :)
can you please shed light on the question below. I could not find two specific examples in the text. thank you! D :)

The primary purpose of the third paragraph is to
(A) introduce a topic that is not discussed earlier in the passage
(B) describe a more efficient method of achieving an effect discussed in the previous paragraph
(C) draw a conclusion based on information elaborated in the previous paragraph
(D) discuss two specific examples of phenomena mentioned at the end of the previous paragraph
(E) introduce evidence that undermines a view reported earlier in the passage

The last sentence of the second paragraph refers to "certain adaptations" that enable terrestrial snakes to regulate blood pressure more effectively when tilted at various angles. These adaptations, as described in the third paragraph, include: 1) the closer proximity of the terrestrial snake's heart to its head and 2) the ability of arboreal snakes to wiggle their bodies, causing waves of muscle contractions that apparently improve the flow of venous blood returning to the heart.

I hope that helps!
