    Sentence Completion

    Hi All,

    If someone could please help me with the following sentence:

    At the cutting edge of research, scientists are developing new sunscreens of both __ and internal varieties.

    1.Polar
    2.Topical -- I think it must be Tropical (might be a printing mistake)
    3.territorial
    4.atmospheric
    5.Regional

    My choice was atmospheric , I was wrong.

    Could anyone please tell me what could it be.

    Thanks,
    Aishwarya

    Just remember that "topical" creams etc are ones that go on "top" of your skin!

    What does one do with an internally applied sun screen? I've never worried about my ear canals or tonsils getting too much sun! I have to guess they mean some sort of a pill form that somehow protects your skin??

    Ray - where are you? You know anything about this?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Some years ago they marketed some pills that were meant to build up your skin's resistance to the sun, but I haven't heard of them since- the natural way does seem to be topical.

    I'm here, but I know nothing about it. The post does say, "cutting edge of research" - maybe not even close to market yet.
