The Financial Times Magazine devoted two
pages to the stock market crash of 1929;
however, the same magazine covered 1985’s
Black Monday with 25 pages.
The best explanation for this
difference is that
A. the crash of 1929 was viewed as
more important than Black
B. the Financial Times Magazine
regretted their underreporting of
the 1929 crash and did not wish
to make the same mistake.
C. the implications of the 1929
crash were more immediately
D. the size of the magazine had
increased so editors could devote
more space to the 1985 story.
E. the press in 1929 devoted more
time to covering stories about
successes instead of failures.
