the answer is that when the 2 correct meanings stand together, one meaning must be considered distorted.
This is reasonable because gmat wants to test our ability to convey the intended meaning exactly .
Plant eating animals (herbivores and omnivores) get their carbon by eating plants.
Radiocarbon decays slowly in a living organism, and the amount lost is continually replenished as long as the organism takes in air or food.
This fact should always be remembered when using radiocarbon dates.
The dating process is always designed to try to extract the carbon from a sample which is most representative of the original organism.
the problem is that in many cases, both the intended meaning and the distorted meaning are correct if they stand alone.It can be applied to most organic materials and spans dates from a few hundred years ago right back to about 50,000 years ago - about when modern humans were first entering Europe.For radiocarbon dating to be possible, the material must once have been part of a living organism.For objects more than about 10,000 years old the results become unreliable.For objects more than about 10,000 years old the results become unreliable.rbon-12, which is a type of radioactive decay.gmat dose not want us to convey another meaning, though, this meaning is still grammatical and logical.
