Explained answer of what do whales feel?

Question 15-21:
15. „taste buds‟ (para 1, last 2 lines: “have been nearly all sacrificed. Similarly, although at
least some cetaceans have taste buds, the nerves serving these have degenerated or are
rudimentary”

16. „baleen‟/‟the baleen whale‟ (para 3, first 2 lines: “The sense of vision is developed to
different degrees in different species. Baleen species studied at close quarters underwater
— specifically a grey whale calf in cap”)

17. „forward % downward‟ (para 4, first 2 lines: “On the other hand, the position of the eyes
in most dolphins and porpoises suggests that they have stereoscopic vision forward and
downward. Eye position in freshwater”)

18. „fresh water dolphin(s)‟/ „the fresh water dolphin(s)‟ (para 4, line 2-3: “that they have
stereoscopic vision forward and downward. Eye position in freshwater dolphins, which
often swim on their side or upside down while feeding, suggests that”)

19. „water/the water‟ (para 4, line 4-5: “what vision they have is stereoscopic forward and
upward. By comparison, the bottlenose dolphin has extremely keen vision in water.
Judging from the way it watches”)

20. „lower frequencies‟/ „the lower frequencies‟ (para 6, line 5: “echolocation. Large baleen
whales primarily use the lower frequencies and are often limited”)

21. „bowhead & humpback‟ (para 6, line 6-7: “in their repertoire. Notable exceptions are the
nearly song-like choruses of bowhead whales in summer and the complex, haunting
utterances of the humpback whales.”)

Question 22-26:
22. „touch/sense of touch‟ (para 2, first 5 lines: “The sense of touch has sometimes been
described as weak too, but this view is probably mistaken. Trainers of captive dolphins
and small whales often remark on their animals‟ responsiveness to being touched or
rubbed, and both captive and free- ranging cetacean individuals of all species
(particularly adults and calves, or members”)

23. „fresh water dolphin(s)/ the fresh water dolphin(s)‟ (para 4, line 2-3: “that they have
stereoscopic vision forward and downward. Eye position in freshwater dolphins, which
often swim on their side or upside down while feeding, suggests that”)

24. „airborne flying fish‟ (para 4, line 4-6: “what vision they have is stereoscopic forward and
upward. By comparison, the bottlenose dolphin has extremely keen vision in water.
Judging from the way it watches and tracks airborne flying fish, it can apparently see
fairly well through the air—water”)

25. „clear water(s)/ clear open water(s)‟ (para 5, line 2-3: “individual species have developed.
For example, vision is obviously more useful to species inhabiting clear open waters than
to those living in turbid rivers and flooded plains. The”)

26. „acoustic sense/ the acoustic sense‟ (para 6, first 3 lines: “Although the senses of taste and
smell appear to have deteriorated, and vision in water appears to be uncertain, such
weaknesses are more than compensated for by cetaceans’ well-developed acoustic sense.
Most species are highly vocal, although”)
