Most spiders build webs of some type. These webs are made from a sticky, silk-like substance that spiders produce naturally. There are two main kinds of webs: orb webs and cobwebs. While both are able to capture and hold prey. it is the orb web that is much more efficient at doing so.

Orb webs are one-dimensional webs built on a flat plane. They consist of spirals of strands of web in an ever-increasing circular pattern that moves outward from a central point. The webs are difficult to see on account of the facts that they are one-dimensional and that the strands are fine enough to be invisible even in bright sunlight, let alone at night. Thus, the majority of spiders build orb webs because insects fly or innocently walk into the webs, thereby becoming easy prey for them.

The flat shape and one-dimensional aspect of the orb web are also more efficient uses of the spider's silk. This type of web enables the spider to use the least amount of web substance thanks to its relatively simple structure. This plain structure also enables the spider to build the web quickly. In fact, it takes only 30 to 45 minutes to complete the orb web. Such efficiency is important because many species of spiders destroy and eat their webs around dawn and rebuild them with new silk each night.

Finally, the orb web allows spiders to know when their prey approaches and gets caught. Since the spider lies at the center of the web, it can feel the vibrations of insects from all directions once they get ensnared. The vibrations are practically a signal to the spider informing it that food is nearby. The spider can then easily locate its prey and approach it to kill and eat it.

The author of the reading passage believes that the orb web is more effective for the spiders to catch their preys, yet the professor in the lecture suggests that the cobweb is the best too for spiders to catch insects.

First, contrary to the reading’s idea that orb web can make it easier for spiders to prey due to the fact that orb web are one-dimensional material with high invisibility, the lecturer asserts that the cobweb enjoy a three-dimensional structure with more dense silks, which makes it superior and more difficult for insects to escape from cobwebs than from orb webs.

Second, the reading cites that orb web can make efficient use of spider silks with the least web and also high speed. However, the professor points out that the orb webs can be broken by external force with ease, while the cob webs are stronger and denser. Besides, the cob webs only need to be reconstructed for one section rather than the whole structure.

Finally, the reading passage mentions that the orb web enables spiders to be informed of the advent of insects and then catch them. Th lecturer, on the other hand, contends that the cob webs are safer than the orb ones which is risky for the spider to be caught by its predator. With the protection of cob web, the spider can lie deeply, which makes it less vulnerable to the outside predators.
