Over the centuries, ... - QuestionCove
pandas:

Over the centuries, wigs have been popular accessories in various cultures. In ancient Egypt, both men and women of the nobility wore wigs on special occasions. These wigs were made of human hair and were usually adorned with flowers and gold ornaments. There are even paintings of dead Egyptians wearing wigs. Egyptians believed that everything needed in the afterlife must be buried with the dead. In ancient Rome, blond hair was preferred to dark hair. Therefore, many women wore wigs made from the hair of blond captives. Through the years, wigs went in and out of style, often on the whims of a king or queen. For example, King Louis XIII of France went bald at an early age, so he wore a wig of long, curly locks. In the 1700s, wigs for women were designed with support wires and powder that raised the hair three feet into the air. Some wigs included cages of live birds or models of sailing ships. Only a very agile woman could move easily in such a headpiece without tipping over! What is the main idea of this selection? Wigs have been a popular accessory throughout history. Ancient Egyptians and Romans wore wigs. Women who wore very tall wigs had to be agile. Wig styles were sometimes determined by kings and queens.

Use elimination. Eliminate A, and D. It doesn't talk about D, and A is false because it's not just for men.

Because it talks about it in the passage. It wouldn't be C, because it only mentions the Egyptians, not the Romans too. @Elsa213 quick opinion?

Choose B. I think B.

Elsa213:

I'm thinking the correct answer is `A` mostly because the main idea of the story is about `wigs` and `A` would help support the main idea. But I could be wrong also.

n123:

it's the most accurate because they talk about them having wigs and wearing them and also how people would wear them because it'd basically make them prettier and more appealing to the eye. also they talk about how from different generations use wigs as well

. Read the passage. (1) Researchers at Six Flags Marine World, in California, were observing young bottlenose dolphins as they blew bubbles under water. The dolphins sometimes made bubble rings by expelling air through their blow holes. As a bubble ring rose in the water, a dolphin would bat it with a fin. Then, before the ring reached the surface, the dolphin would bite the ring to pop it. (2) The dolphins’ behavior made the scientists wonder whether dolphins could plan ahead. The scientists think that this might be true. If a dolphin’s first ring was well formed, the dolphin was more likely to make a second ring. The two rings usually combined to make a large ring that seemed even more fun to bat and bite. If the first ring was poorly formed, though, the dolphin would not bother to make another one. It was as though the dolphin were saying, “Why bother?” Which detail from paragraph 1 is most important for a summary of the paragraph? Scientists study dolphins that blow bubble rings. Six Flags Marine World is in California. Dolphins expel air through their blow holes. Researchers study bottlenose dolphins.
