    00:01 Question four states, the argument of the passage will be most in line with which claim? If we just quickly skim the answers, we can see two answers that claim singing is a science.

    00:12 And to that claim, it is an art with different explanations for each.

    00:18 The author put a lot of effort into the claim that genuine impulse to sing is from the soul in its need for expression.

    00:26 This best aligns to singing as an art.

    00:30 Then we want to evaluate which explanation fits best.

    00:34 Answer choice D discusses how maybe some people are inherently talented to sing.

    00:40 Whereas answer choice C states that singing requires an understanding of emotions that didn't get expressed through music.

    00:48 Which actually fits quite well with what the passage has argued, and is our correct answer selection.

    00:58 Question five states, the author would be inclined to agree with which of the following claims? Just do it; Dreams can become reality; Talent is something you're born with, or there is no human soul.

    01:14 This is another reasoning beyond the text question.

    01:18 This time a what if question type.

    01:21 We want to evaluate which of the answer choices best fits the author's point of view.

    01:26 The author explicitly discusses the soul.

    01:29 So we can rule out answer choice D.

    01:31 Just do it, answer choice A, implies that we could kinetically act without preceding thought.

    01:38 And this goes against what the author's argues.

    01:42 Answer choice B, dreams can become reality.

    01:45 by ends up with the author's idea that to be successful at something thought means to proceed action, and as such answer choice B will be our correct answer choice.

    01:56 Question six states, which of the following activities would be the most comparable to singing based on the author's discussion of what singing properly entails? Tracing a picture, doing a personality assessment, rock climbing, or acting in a play? Up to this point, we've focused heavily on singing, but it's important to keep the theme in mind, namely speaking and singing, linguistics and music.

    02:27 Paragraph four gives an explicit comparison between singing and speaking.

    02:32 At one point going so far as to state, the speaker or singer who would successfully interpret the thoughts of others must first make those thoughts his very own.

    02:43 Well, any of the answer choices could possibly align with the passage idea that thought must precede action for the best outcome.

    02:51 Answer choice D acting in a play is the type of activity that would most require inferring the thoughts of others in order to perform at one's best.

    03:00 It might be tempting to select answer choice B doing a personality assessment, but as this does not include any subsequent public performance based on the information gathered, we can still say that answer choice D is the best way to go.
