No because it’s an empty space where there is nothing to get messy.
Which color is the most fluorescent at night? Why?
White because the moon is white and the moon shines on everything and makes it white.

Because most elderly are older are often living in rural areas.
Which is more interconnected;  a vine or a dandelion? Why?
Dandelion because as soon as somebody sees a dandelion they will pick it up and and be connected with it straight away.
Which is more seldom; the Olympics or an election in NZ? Why?
Olympics because elections are much more often in New Zealand.

Extended Writing
Think of a time when you felt as though you were in a void or when you saw something that happens seldom. Write a paragraph about this.
