QUESTION 46 AND 48 OF THE VERBAL REVIEW 2nd ED



Please I need help to answer two question in this passage

In a 1918 editorial, W.E.B. Du Bois advised African
Americans to stop agitating for equality and to
proclaim their solidarity with White Americans for
the duration of the First World War. The editorial
surprised many African Americans who viewed
Du Bois as an uncompromising African American
leader and a chief opponent of the accommodationist
tactics urged by Booker T.Washington. In fact,
however, Du Bois often shifted positions along the
continuum between Washington and
confrontationists such as William Trotter. In 1895,
when Washington called on African Americans to
concentrate on improving their communities instead
of opposing discrimination and agitating for political
rights, Du Bois praised Washington’s speech. In
1903, however, Du Bois aligned himself with Trotter,
Washington’s militant opponent, less for ideological
reasons than because Trotter had described to him
Washington’s efforts to silence those in the African
American press who opposed Washington’s
positions.
Du Bois's wartime position thus reflected not a
change in his long-term goals but rather a
pragmatic response in the face of social pressure:
government officials had threatened African
American journalists with censorship if they
continued to voice grievances. Furthermore,
Du Bois believed that African Americans’
contributions to past war efforts had brought them
some legal and political advances. Du Bois’s
accommodationism did not last, however. Upon
learning of systematic discrimination experienced
by African Americans in the military, he called on
them to “return fighting” from the war.

46 The passage indicates which of the following about Du Bois's attitude toward Washington ?

A. It underwent a shift during the First World War as Du Bois became more sympathetic with Trotter's views.

B. It underwent a shift in 1903 for reasons other than Du Bois's disagreement with Washington's accommodationist views.

C. It underwent a shift as Du Bois made a long-term commitment to the strategy of accommodation.

D. It remained consistently positive even though Du Bois disagreed with Washington's efforts to control the African American press.

E. It was shaped primarily by Du Bois's appreciation of Washington's pragmatic approach to the advancement of the interests of African Americans.


I do nto find a reaosn to eliminate E

Also:

48 :- The author of the passage refers to Washington's call to African Americans in 1895 primarily in order to

A. identify Du Bois's characteristics position on the continuum between accommodationism and confrontationism

B. explain why Du Bois was sympathetic with Washington's views in 1895

C. clarify how Trotter's views differed from those of Washington in 1895

D. support an assertion about Du Bois's tendency to shift his political positions

E. dismiss the claim that Du Bois's position in his 1918 editorial was consistent with his previous views

Why B is incorrect?

hello alexis .

first for Q 46, I will mark B from these lines

In fact,
however, Du Bois often shifted positions along the
continuum between Washington and
confrontationists such as William Trotter. In 1895,
when Washington called on African Americans to
concentrate on improving their communities instead
of opposing discrimination and agitating for political
rights, Du Bois praised Washington’s speech. In
1903, however, Du Bois aligned himself with Trotter,
Washington’s militant opponent, less for ideological
reasons than because Trotter had described to him
Washington’s efforts to silence those in the African
American press who opposed Washington’s
positions.


about elimination of E , no where is mentioned that washington's approach was pragmatic and du bois appreciated it or not . Do not confuse with the praise of Washington's speech that is mentioned in passage only to exemplify that Du Bois often shifted positions


for Q 48 I will mark D for similar reason as above
