Official Explanation

3. The passage is primarily concerned with

Explanation

We can and should predict the answer to a general question such as this one. We might predict: "The passage describes conflicts within the labor movement during a particular period during a time of growth." Even a mediocre prediction, if it's not flawed, will speed our evaluation of the answer choices. (B) fits our prediction.

The passage does not offer strong opinions, so (A) is out. Although unions were formed to address issues, the passage doesn't describe problems or solutions, so (C) is out. The passage doesn't describe many reasons for adoption of labor (the only one is the Act, probably), so (D) is out. And (E), like (A), involves a level of opinion not expressed by the passage.

Hope it helps

Question no. 1
Why B will not be the answer?

Official Explanation

1. The passage suggests that the AFL differed from the CIO in which of the following ways?

Explanation

We already have an answer in mind to this question: the AFL was more conservative, the CIO more aggressive. Let's see what answer choices are consistent with this idea. (C), (D), and (E) are all in the vicinity of our expectation.

For (C), we can scan and confirm that we have no idea whether these groups thought conflict could be avoided, based on the passage. So (C) is out.

Somewhat similarly, in (D), we don't have knowledge that the CIO wanted to provoke the government as a goal. They wanted to use more aggressive recruitment methods. That doesn't fit (D), but it fits (E), which looks correct.

(A) is wrong; the CIO left the AFL because it was kicked out.

(B) is inaccurate, because the AFL wasn't targeting unskilled laborers whatsoever.
