Background: The U.S. Marine Corps first adopted a BLM wild horse for the Mounted Color Guard in 1988. A two-year old horse called "Okinawa" became an integral part of the equine unit, quickly learning to lead a parade with flags flapping, jets flying overhead, audiences clapping and dealing with unexpected loud noises. (2) His calm performances encouraged the Marines to adopt seven other wild horses. (3) The Mounted Color Guard has since participated in every Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California, since 1990, as well as dozens of other annual parades and shows. Which sentence, if inserted between sentence (2) and sentence (3), would make the BEST addition to bridge the gap between what the two sentences are saying?

The Tournament of Roses parade is the granddaddy of them all.


B)
These seven other wild horses may not be as calm as ’Okinawa.’


C)
For Okinawa’s calmness, he has earned the privilege of doing what equines do…perform.


D)
There are many examples of how these horses can be both entertaining and extremely disciplined.

Answers

In the text provided, the author describes how the U.S. Marine Corps, a branch of the American Armed Forces . Hence option D is correct .

What are two sentences are saying?

Decided to adopt a wild horse in 1988 and went on to adopt numerous more wild horses as a result of this horse's success.

The author mainly explains to the audience how the first wild horse was adopted and the performance of it as part of the Mounted Color Guard by giving details about how quickly the horse became an important part of the parades and unexpectedly was not afraid in situations with loud noises. This helps to support the text's main idea, which is that wild horses can be adopted and trained.

This demonstrates the author's objectives.By telling the audience about one of the horses or by providing an example of a wild horse being trained and then adopted by the U.S. Marine Corps, you can demonstrate to the audience that it is possible to adopt horses and integrate them into the Marine Corps. This is true and demonstrates that wild horses can be a part of the armed forces.
