I would pick (6). However if I were writing it I would say: Each shell has eight rowers and a coxswain who does not row but steers the boat while keeping the rowers working together.

**English**

1. is fine although there is much more to being a good coxswain. I would pick 2-2 because it is specific about why you want the big strong guys in the middle. 3. fine 4. fine.

When sea level was lower, it was relatively simple to cross the Bering Strait from Asia to Alaska. That is the most likely scenario although it is possible that some Polynesians could have landed on the west coast of South America. They settled most of the Pacific Ocean ...
