though they seem like an unusual way to extinguish a fire engineering students are designing low-frequency sound wave devices to put out flames alright that was really strange because they're saying though they seem like an unusual way to extinguish a fire so they're referring today as something that's an unusual way to extinguish a fire and then right after that they say engineering students so they're implying that the engineering students are the they so let me put a little are engineering the way the sentence is constructed it makes it sound like engineering students are the day that engineering students are an unusual way to extinguish a fire and that would be an unusual way indeed but what they're really trying to say is that low-frequency sound wave devices to put out where that low-frequency sound wave devices are the unusual way to extinguish a fire so I would like I would like the second Clause to start with low frequency sound wave devices so let's look at the chases so I definitely don't like it as is so though they seem like an unusual way to extinguish the fire engineering students so they're doing that same thing again though they seem like an unusual way to extinguish a fire low frequency sound wave devices okay I'm liking this so far because it's clear that the DES is referring to low frequency sound wave devices designed by engineering students are being used to put out flames so I'm liking I'm liking this choice right over here so look at this last one though they seem like an unusual way to extinguish a fire flames are and so this is implying that flames is the day and so you can just replace day with flames and see if that makes sense though flames seem like an unusual way to extinguish a fire once again that would be an unusual way that's not even what they want to say they want to say that the low frequency sound ways that's the day so I don't like this one either so I'm definitely liking that choice
