Critical Reading > Sentence Completions

Choose the word or set of words that, when inserted in the sentence, best fits the meaning of the sentence as a whole. 

Many forests in the southern region of the continent are ------- plant and animal diversity, partly because they never suffered the onslaught of glaciers that wiped out flora and fauna in northern forests long ago.

Answer Choices

Right! (Applause.)

Explanation

The sentence indicates that “an onslaught of glaciers” once changed things in “northern forests” but not in “forests in the southern region of the continent.” It makes sense to suggest that the forests that did not have their “flora and fauna,” or plants and animals, wiped out by glaciers would be “rich in plant and animal diversity,” or would contain a vast amount of different plants and animals.
