We can only guess at why it has not become extinct, but the physical assets of the cockroach provide a major reason for its survival. The cockroach's body is very flat, allowing it to slip into tiny cracks and crevices, and its six strong running legs give it unmatched powers of escape. Two small feelers detect movements and changes in air currents, thus warning the insect of approaching danger. The cockroach's two large eyes are made up of hundreds of tiny, separate eyes which are very good for seeing movements - an ability that helps a roach escape its enemies.</span></span></span></td> </tr> </tbody> </table>in the first sentencein the last sentencein the middle of the paragraphin two sentences of the paragraphnot stated in the paragraph directly (implied)it's about cockroaches4100
