Reading Comprehension: Detail Questions

According to the passage, traditional basket making songs

Great!

[[snippet]]

We know that these songs give thanks to the plants and are sung through the entire basket making process.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

Although it is stated some basket makers sing songs of thanks because they believe that plants are active participants in the basket making process, we cannot presume that the songs themselves include words thanking the plants for this participation.

That would be an assumption, or at best an inference; but Detail Questions ask us only about what is explicitly stated in the passage.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

These songs are mentioned only in the context of Klamath basket making. We do not know if they play any other role in Klamath culture.

Remember, this is a Detail Question and therefore you are looking for what is explicitly stated in the passage and not for what can be inferred from the passage.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

The passage states that the songs are sung throughout the entire basket making process.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

The passage states that the songs thank the plants, not praise them.

praise the plants which supplied the basket making materials
are sung only when gathering raw materials from plants
are a crucial part of Klamath culture
give thanks to the plants which supplied the basket making materials at all points in the basket making process
include words expressing gratitude to the plants for their cooperation in the basket making process
