    Here's a hint!

    In your first sentence, look at these parts of the series:

    - in their fingerprint patterns,
    - in how they talk, and
    - in their dental patterns

    Which one of the three is not phrased like the others? How will you fix that?

    Yes, both of your revisions are good.

    Mine were wrong?

    Okay, Thanks (: Sorry didn't see your other comment

    You're welcome.

    (And, yes, both yours and mine were posted about the same time, huh?)
