A legend says that 200 years ago a man sailed from Madagascar to Paraguay. The man used a sailboat made out of wood from maple trees that grew on his island. The man used the north star to navigate at night and he ate lobsters to survive. Once he reached Paraguay, his boat sank and his ghost lives near the wreckage.

Explain 4 things that are wrong with this legend.



Answer

1) There were no maple trees in Madagascar.

2) He could not see the north star to navigate in the south hemisphere.

3) He would not be able to fish for a lobster to eat as lobster live at the bottom of the sea instead of swimming around.

4) Lastly, Paraguay could not be accessed by water.
