Hi Rahul,

Regarding choice B in Q1.

The key word in B is 'contrast'. This should there fore compare one thing with another. There is no sense of that in 'confusion and ambiguity' - it's more of a simple statement of fact about one city.

That this 'confusion and ambiguity' may only exist in one of the 2 cities is not enough - you're only looking at the highlighted text, and in that there is no 'contrast'

BBDC...11 mins..4 mins for initial reading..Can some one explain why B is not correct for question 1?

Moreover,i normally take 4 minutes for initial reading and taking notes for passages of such complexity and more or less that is my average.How can i reduce it to under 3 mins?Can any one suggest better note making strategy?



The confusion and ambiguity is mentioned only for Oudehaske's project . However, option B of question 1 mentions both the city projects.

Hope it helps..!!!!!
