A) Personal experience of mothering and motherhood are largely framed in relation to two discernible or official discourses; the medical discourse and natural childbirth discourse. Both of these tend to focus on the optimistic stories of birth and mothering and underpin stereotypes of the godmother.

C) Similarly, historical work has shown how what are now taken for granted aspects of reproduction and mothering practices result from contemporary pseudoscientific directives and managed constructs. These changes have led to a reframing of modern discourses that pattern pregnancy and motherhood leading to an acceptance of the need for greater expert management.

D) The contrasting, overlapping and ambiguous strands with in these frameworks focus to varying degrees on a woman’s biological tie to her child and predisposition to instinctively know and be able to care for her child.

E) In addition, a third, unofficial popular discourse comprising old wives tales and based on maternal experiences of childbirth has also been noted. These discourses have also been acknowledged in work exploring the experiences of those who apparently do not conform to conventional stereotypes of the good mother?

**6) Fishing is a serious environmental issue. It has been determined by the scientists that if the net of a trawler has mesh size x cm by x (square mesh) then the percentage of fish entering the net that is caught in the net is 100-0.02x^2-0.05x. For example, if the mesh size is zero, 100% of the fish that enter the net will be caught. The trawler with a square mesh that was suspected of using an illegal size net, dropped its net to the ocean floor near the damans and coast guard officials arrested the crew. The scientists later looked at the size of the fish caught and estimated that the net used by the trawler at least caught 97.93% of the fish entering the net. What is the maximum value of x for the net by the trawler?**

a) 8.5

b) 9
