the exchange students were able to view but not handle the fragile artifacts at the archaeological site so they've underlined fragile and we need to think do we not want to change it is fragile the right word to use or do we want to replace it with weak decrepit or sickly so let's think about it fragile means something that you can break very easily so that actually seems to make sense you know they're not the students aren't able to handle the artifacts because they're very easy to break so I could imagine that the exchange students were able to view but not handle the fragile artifacts at the archaeological site so I actually like fragile there but let's see how the other words fit in weak so weak if you're I mean if you're talking about a thing being weak it means that okay if you were to kind of it wouldn't be able to support a lot of weight maybe or it does mean that you know it might kind of fail under pressure somehow so it is close to fragile so the exchange students were able to view but not handle the weak artifacts at the archaeological site yeah weak just doesn't as strongly give this notion of being a easy to break fragile really talks about that it's very clear okay you wouldn't want to touch you would kind of restrict people touching something that is fragile so I don't know this one is I don't feel so great about it decrepit so decrepit is something that's kind of old or worn out and you know artifacts are old and worn out but you're usually referring to like it could be it could be people or things but I kind of think of something very old and decrepit and decrepit by itself isn't saying why you're not allowed to touch it I guess is the main takeaway the exchange students were able to view but not handle the decrepit artifacts at the archaeological site it's you know just because something is old and worn out doesn't mean that that's the reason not to touch it the reason not to touch it is because you could break it easily so I'll rule this one out and then you have sickly this exchange students were able to view but not handle the sickly artifacts at the archaeological site well sickly means if you're talking about a person which were not in it would mean something someone who's sick often or easy to get sick or it could mean you know just kind of a pungent smell or something this makes you ill and I don't think that's the reason why they're not handling and if they said the students were able to view but not smell maybe it maybe you'd go with the sickly artifacts and even that would sound a little strange so the fact I really like fragile here and all these other ones don't really feel as good so I'm going to go with no change
