Guys,

I'm not completely satisfied with the Question 21 and want to see your speculations.

The author emphasizes how the American economy transformed.A,D,E are clear out.Between B and C,would go with C for Q20

21 Its a transformation.Isnt it?Last two lines...,hence C

First 4 lines of the second column say that the nation consisted not only of farmers, but also of city artisans, businessmen and manufacturers.
So, it's NOT100% that the nation transformed from AGRICULTURAL Society ....
Where is the flaw in my reasoning?

See i guess one needs to use POE.Check out the options,only A and C left.You can easily discard the others.Now if you compare these two, isn't there a transformation as the author clearly emphasizes throughout.

By the way what are the OA's for both?Kudos if i get both bang on bang!

21 C.

The last sentence indicates that "Industrial story .....is the story of ...economic transformation "

I gave you Kudos
The point is: I easily eliminated all four wrong choises, but (C) is not good either, although it's the best from the set. OA is (C).
