can someone please explain this?
Situation: Existing infrastructure and transportation systems put states that have lost manufacturing jobs in a strong position to recover.
Reasoning: Which of the following best completes the sentence? The correct answer to this question depends on filling in the blank with an idea that continues the one introduced in the first half of the passage. The first half of the passage is concerned with a way to recover employment opportunities. The infrastructure and transportation in these states mean that they are already prepared to begin manufacturing.
This option correctly completes the sentence by continuing an idea from the first half of the passage: states that have lost manufacturing jobs are in the best position to begin manufacturing materials in the green energy sector.
Tax rebates are not discussed in the passage.
This option is merely a paraphrase of the first sentence and does not add new information to the passage.
The word continue is incorrect; according to the passage, green energy manufacturing would be a new industry for the states.
The words adapt quickly just before the blank make it clear that the states are expected to begin using their infrastructure and transportation immediately, not researching.
The correct answer is A.
