    Doesn’t look like that the answer to question 2 is correct. It should be B
    Or there is a typo in option A, it should read – They were NOT understandable at the time.

    Can you please tell why the answer in second question is ‘a’ ?
    While People thought the disease of Malaria was due to bad Air and speaker also emphasized here that who can blame them for making that false connection.
    So, it means they (Mosquitoes) were not understandable at that time. so how ‘a’ can be the answer ?

      The speaker mentioned “people thought bad air is what caused malaria” And another speaker answered that “who can blame them really? Who can blame them for making that, hmm, false connection? Who’d have thought that a tiny insect, like a mosquito, could cause so much sickness?”, hence the early view of “bad air caused malaria” is wrong but understandable.
