  1. Hi Cristina. I want to ask something about the answers for question 6 and 10 since I have heard something different in the video but I’m not completely sure.
    In question 6, when the scientis speaks, I undestand dramautic (wich I belive it’s more suitable for the prediction about N. Y. City) while your solution is traumatic.
    And in question 10 my doubt is about the preposition: I think the narrator says that ‘these landmasses are constantly ON a move’ but I’m not pretty sure.
    I hope you could help me to clarify this doubts.
    Thanks in advance.

    • On the move is The correcta answer. As for dramatic or traumatic, I think they use The latter. I wouldn’t swear to it, though.
