Reading and writing fill in the blanks practice exercise. Below is text with blanks. Choose the correct word for each blank to complete the text.

Mushrooms must scatter their spores to make little (1) ………………………… . And we’ve long assumed that they rely on a (2) ……………………….. breeze for spore spreading. And it is studied that mushrooms can create their own spore-casting wind. Fluid (3) ………………… researchers trained high-speed video cameras on common Shiitake and oyster mushrooms. The scientists (4) ………………….. that the mushroom spores floated off even when the air was calm. They enlisted mathematical models to solve the mystery. It turns out that before the spore dispersal, the mushrooms released water vapor. And this moisture cooled the air around the ‘shroom, causing a convective dynamic that got the air moving. So, this faint fungal breeze was enough to carry the spores away from the parent. These findings were (5) …………………… at the Annual Meeting of the American Physical Society’s Division of Fluid Dynamics in (6) ………………………. . This discovery shows that mushrooms aren’t simply in a race to produce the most spores. (7) ………………. also engineered a good way to spread them.
