The reading and listening material have a conflict of opinions about people that missing on the ship. The writer provides three theories, which are contradicted by the following lecture.
Firstly, the passage claims that they were captured by pirates. However, the listening refutes this claim by saying that what's the main purpose of pirate is to demand money; however, they did not ask for money. In addition the valuable things were all on the ship.
Secondly, the reading proposes that the ship transported flammable liquid. Yet, the speaker disagrees with this proposal. If the ship leaked, the liquid would produce a strong smell，which lingered a long time.
Finally, the author suggests that the ship was sinking. By contrast, the professor thinks the reading’s claim does not hold water. The ship was floating a few days and the crew were experienced. They knew that staying on the ship is safer.
