Popular culture in the US has become Europeanized to an extent unimaginable twenty five years ago. Not many people then drank wine with meals, and no one drank imported mineral water. No ideal would be more astonishing than that American would pay to watch soccer games. Such thoughts arise because of a report that the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officals has just adopted a proposal to develop the country's first comprehensive interstate system of routes for bicycles.
Which of the following inference is best supported by the passage?
A. Long - distance bicycle routes are used in Europe.
B. Drinking imported mineral water is a greater luxury than drinking imported wine.
C. US culture has benefited from exposure to foreign ideas
D. Most European may regular use of bicycles
E. The influence of US on European culture has assumed unprecedented proportions in the last 25 years

Report of interstate bicycle routes being built in the US -> makes the author think of how much influence the European culture had on the American culture

Examples of things Europeans do which Americans started doing:
1. wine with meals
2. imported mineral water
3. paying to watch soccer games

Therefore, riding bikes on interstate routes is smth the Europeans do

A is my asnwer.

I think it is D.

It is between A & D. 'Long distance' is kind of subjective. How long is long?

That is why I have chosen D, which clearly reflects the culture.

What is OA? Please publish it.

OlegC/Paul? Any jump-in here??

8-) 8-)

Question is an inference one. A should be it
Premise says: Americans recently adopted the system of route use for bicycle and the next step up would be for them to pay for soccer games.

A) From premise to hold, we must infer that Europeans do have those kind of routes
D) We cannot infer this because the very existence of these kind of routes in Europe is independent of whether Europeans use bicycles on a regular basis. ie, Europeans could use their bicycles only once in a blue moon but yet, those tracks could still exist.

Overall, you have to make sure that you can infer ABCD or E from the premises given. D is certainly wrong.
