Explanation

Indeed a tough question.

If someone could have lenses in a previous age suddenly would appear that the amount and variety of fish in to the ocean would be very dissimilar from the current age.

As such a casual observer would notice that plentiful of fish were present. Otherwise, without special lenses could be difficult to discern or notice the difference.

A,E, and H are the answers

In the upper-level range. Probably , you are going to see a similar question in the second part of the exam if you score well in the first verbal part.

Last blank was difficult. 'Ignore' and 'dismiss' have almost similar meanings so I tried the odd one out and it worked. Not sure if my approach is correct though.
