      Are

    • D.

      Were

    Correct Answer
    C. Are
    Explanation
    Blowfish contain a highly toxic substance called tetrodotoxin, which can be fatal if consumed in large quantities. People are sometimes killed by eating blowfish because they are not properly prepared or cooked. The organs of the blowfish, especially the liver and ovaries, contain the highest concentration of tetrodotoxin. If these organs are not carefully removed during preparation, the toxin can contaminate the flesh of the fish, leading to poisoning when consumed. Therefore, it is crucial to have trained and skilled chefs who know how to properly prepare blowfish to ensure its safe consumption.

In this case, the question is asking about the reason behind a cat's purring, so the correct form is "does."
