Examine the evidence of the Earth's shape. The sharp horizon at first suggests a flat Earth with an edge. But as you walk toward the horizon, the "edge" recedes ahead of you, implying that the Earth's surface is curved. Look also at a ship sailing out to sea. It does not stay permanently visible, nor does it drop instantly away. First, the hull disappears, then the masts. When you only see the top of the ship, you know that the bottom must still be resting on an ocean that is below your line of sight.

a)classification
