Guys,

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

I would go
20 C
21 Confused b/w A and C,would go with C

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

Please, address my doubts about 21:

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! :wink:

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).

21 C.

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