Below is a sketch of a 水螅 ("hydra") from a grade-8 biology textbook:
The text writes the following (original):
I'm interested in the precise meaning of the last part, as it reminds me of the kinds of questions they like to ask on HSK exams, requiring precise interpretation of such phrases. The part in bold means something like:
...on the tentacles there are particularly many 刺细胞 (cnibolasts).
I'm not sure if this means:
- (almost) all 刺细胞 are on the tentacles;
- there are many 刺细胞 on the tentacles, but perhaps there are also many elsewhere too;
- the 刺细胞 are densely packed and readily found on the tentacles.
In particular, I'm a bit confused as to why they chose the word:
CC-CEDICT: 尤其 (yóuqí) especially / particularly
Question: What does 尤其 emphasize in the phrase 在触手处尤其多?
