Here are the steps I took for the problem solving: Read the question thoroughly Read all of the answers fully one by one Tried to find the most logical explanation for the salamanders being blind Picked my answer based on past knowledge I had on evolution Chose answer B because it explains more than any other answer why cave salamanders are now blind 2. 3.The best answer for question 2 is answer E: C/1, A/2, B/3 Using the analyzing and applying method to solve this problem these are the steps I took to reach my
