    A. To help them identify the things around them
    Explanation
    Dolphins send out sound beams from their foreheads to help them identify the things around them. This is because dolphins use echolocation, a process in which they emit sound waves and listen for the echoes that bounce back off objects in their environment. By analyzing these echoes, dolphins can determine the location, size, shape, and even the texture of objects around them. This ability is crucial for navigation, finding food, and avoiding obstacles in their underwater habitat.

    Correct Answer
    C. Their bodies do not bend well so they would not be able to get around the branches.
    Explanation
    The detail that best supports the statement is that ocean dolphins' bodies do not bend well, which would make it difficult for them to navigate around the branches in the Amazon River.
