The passage and lecture are arguing over some beliefs about the elephants. The author lists three surprising beliefs about the elephants. On the contrary, the lecturer casts doubt on these beliefs and she refuses these beliefs one by one.
Firstly, it is said on the passage that old elephants are aware about their deaths' time and leave the herd. In contrast, the professor challenges this point and she mentions that old elephent leave the herd and go around the water for eating soft vegetables. Therefore, these behavior of the old elephants has nothing to do with their deaths.
Secondly, the author maintains that the elephants are able to draw some paints on the canvas which demonstrates the artistic ability of the elephants. The lecturer, however, rebuts this matter and she asserts that elephants have sensitive ears. In this way, some trainers tame the elephants to move the brush on the canvas. In short, the elephants have no idea about the objects like flowers or animals which they draw and they move the brush at the same time their ears are touched.
Thirdly, the author suggests that elephants like human beings have a fear of mice. Nevertheless, the lecturer objects this point and she points out that the elephants which are unfamiliar with mice, are afraid of mice. For example, there is a specific type of the elephant that are living in common places with mice and they know that mice have no poisonous substances, thus they are not afraid of mice.
