Q18

by JoannaZ901 Fri Nov 09, 2018 4:16 am

Hi, this is a question for PT84 Passage 3 "Literary Genre" Q18. I don't find the button to post a new topic under PT 84, so I have to falsely occupy here. :(

I cannot understand at all why the correct answer is (B). I can see from line 5-8 that the author of passage A would probably agree with it. But I have trouble seeing why the author of passage B would agree. Is it because line 32-33 that saying "we are free to read any text by any reading protocol we wish"?

And is (C) is wrong because "unambiguously" is not inferable?

Any help is appreciated!

I do have an actual question related to PT 85. Can you confirm my logic for this question? I was stuck between (A) and (D) and now I think I see why (D) is correct, as lines 39-43 say that any type of opera is good as long as it serves a particular situation. Since any is a strong word, it encompasses operas where "words are subordinated to music" as stated in the stem, so it must be true that the author believes this type of opera is as legitimate as other types. Is this why (D) is correct, and is (A) wrong because passage B never mentions what constitutes as popular art?

Thank you!
