A biologist and an economist go for a walk in the woods. They suddenly come across a big black bear. The economist turns to run away. The biologist tells him, “Do not run away, we cannot outrun a black bear.” The economist begins to run away and calls to the biologist, “I may not be able to outrun a black bear, but I can outrun you!”
A. They are at the zoo
B. They come across a tiger
C. The biologist is dizzy with fear
D. The economist is continuously running
Why this is difficult: Vocabulary! If students miss one word, for example, “woods,” or “black bear,” then the answers will be confusing. Students will most likely focus more on trying to figure out “economist,” and “biologist,” which do not matter as much in the end.
