好了,这是《THE UGLY DUCKLING》《丑小鸭》的第二集:耐心而善良的鸭妈妈继续孵蛋

Question 1:
为什么 the duck mother 相信丑小鸭就是她自己的孩子?.
the answer is:
因为 the duck mother 看到丑小鸭可以游泳,她觉得火鸡是不会游泳的,只有鸭子会游泳,那肯定是 her own child了。

Question 2 :
为什么 the duck mother 说她要多花几天时间,把 the largest egg 孵化出来?,
my opinion is:
因为鸭妈妈舍不得自己的孩子,她觉得那个最大的蛋有可能就是她自己下的。

昨天的问题
