    In the reading, the writer talks about three reasons that the old fossil structures of bee nests is made by modern bees rather than Did bees. The lecture in the listening, however, believes that none of the three reasons is persuasive and uses specific reasons and details to support her claim.

    To begin with, the reading passage states that the earliest fossil of Did bees we have discovered is one hundred million years old, which means Did bees wasn’t active before that period. In the listening, however, the professor argues that none of earlier Did bees’ bodies remained doesn’t means they were not exist in earlier time. The preservation of their fossil structure depend on trees.However, in that period, threes were so rare so that never would they have enough medium to preserve.

    此外,作者指出,在两百年前的时期几乎没有鲜花。相反,讲座不同意这一观点,它证明了当时已经存在的古老花朵只是形式不同,这意味着蜜蜂和花朵之间的关系已经建立。然后,花通过进化成为特征。

    最后但并非最不重要的一点是,阅读段落提到蜜蜂巢的身体看起来像现代蜜蜂制作的巢室。然而,讲座认为这种说法是站不住脚的,因为研究人员有化学证据可以通过使用特定的水来识别这种物质来证明这一点。虽然化石没有这样的帽子,但它仍然包含与现代蜜蜂具有类似功能的特征。
