Which statement expresses a central idea of the article? Very few people use echolocation in their daily lives. Echolocation is a technique that can be utilized by humans. Echolocation has been studied by scientists for many years. Some animals are known for using echolocation to find food. 5. Read Daniel Kish's claim from line 46. "I have mental images that are very rich, very complex." Which quotation best supports this claim? "... Kish of Long Beach, Calif., also uses echolocation, and has become an expert on it..."

(lines 48 and 49) "... what he can tell you about an object's qualities is sometimes astonishingly thorough." (lines 49 and 50) 6. In people who are blind, the visual cortex seems to help activate the optic nerve where images are formed increase the amount of light reaching the brain create images in the brain based on sounds make echoes of sounds from clicks 7. How do lines 51 through 53 develop a key concept of the article? by using a comparison to suggest the echolocation potential of humans by demonstrating that humans use echolocation more effectively than animals do by describing why using echolocation benefits bats and dolphins in unique ways by showing that scientists need more time to study echolocation techniques Source: New York State Education Department - EngageNY.
