Q11. Last week, a space scientist named
Abel Mendez observed a strange signal. He hasn’t observed anything like this in
his entire life. But this mysterious space signal is probably not from Aliens
stated the young scientist.

Which of the following could be the
most likely reason why Abel dismissed the possibility of the signal being sent
from Aliens?
(i)
It appeared only when Mendez and his colleagues had their telescope pointed
at a single star - an unassuming red dwarf called Ross 128 just 11 light-years
away.
(ii) Mendez's signal was initially
detected during a campaign to observe nearby red dwarfs. Several of these stars
are thought to be candidates to host planets that may be hospitable to life.
(iii) Such a signal could also be a
result of an interaction between the star and an orbiting planet. In addition,
it's possible that the signal is coming from another space phenomenon that the
astronomers haven't identified yet.

Option (ii) supports the possibility of the
signal being sent from aliens by pointing out that these types of dwarf stars
considered as being hospitable to the alien life.
Option (iii) negates the possibility of the
signal being sent from aliens by pointing out the other possibilities about the
origin of the signal.
