Hima said :
For question 37, I wrote the answer "could not hear". Is that correct?
Yes, but in the answer key, it says Hear it. I checked it twice, the audio clearly says the scientist couldn't hear it.

Abhishek
I got the same, but the question asks what the scientist could NOT do. So the answer is "hear it".
