I read somewhere that words that quantify should be noted. In the passage it says “the vault has room for *at least* 4.5 million samples” while the question states “There can be a collection of almost 4.5 million known crop seed varieties.”
*At least* means means minimum it can carry, which means it can carry well over 4.5 million crop seeds. While *almost* means it can carry close to 4.5 million but not 4.5 million. I think these mean two different things or am I wrong? Based on this logic, I was really confused but ended up giving my answers as NO.

Hello
It is clearly mentioned in the passage that the Svalbard vault will consist of 1.5 million known crop seed varieties and there’s room for 4.5 million samples. So, the answer is Yes. In such questions, apart from the words “at least” and “almost”, “can” is the word to be taken care of in the question.

Statement 4 should be marked as NO. The passage indicates that the temperature should be (-18) and not (18).
