    Question Which sentence is proper for the blank according to the context?

    Listen to the preflight briefing by the flight attendant and read the safety card. ______________. And if you're about to crash, do adopt the brace position-head down, ankles behind knees. The brace position is designed to reduce your chances of being knocked unconscious during a heavy impact.

    A. Be prepared B. Surviving a plane crash means surviving the impact.

    Which one do you think is proper, according to the context, to be filled in the blank in that short passage? Thanks for help!

    Ok! The answer to it is "Be prepared", but I can't see why the option B doesn't work for the passage. Now could you help me about it? Thanks!

    Seems to work to me too.
    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.

    A connects to the logical steps towards reducing the risk of death. B is true, but fairly meaningless IMO.

    It's a totally silly question. What does it pretend to test?
