Only E is covering the summary from all 3 paras.

(e) the revival of the byzantine empire between the eighth and eleventh centuries shows cultural rebirth preceding economic and military revival, the reverse of the commonly accepted order of progress.

------------------------------------------------

2. the primary purpose of the second paragraph is which of the following?

Therefore, Byzantine military achievements led to economic advances, which in turn led to cultural revival. ---- Consider these lines into account.

(c) to suggest that cultural, economic. and military advances have tended to be closely interrelated in different societies.
-----------------------------------------------

3. it can be inferred from the passage that by the eleventh century the byzantine military forces

872 the "military balance with the Abbasid Caliphate" had been permanently altered in the empire’s favor.

(d) were strong enough to withstand the abbasid caliphate's military forces

---------------------------------------------

6. which of the following does the author mention as crucial evidence concerning the manner in which the byzantine revival began?

In the 860’s the Byzantine Empire began to recover from Arab incursions so that by 872 the military balance with the Abbasid Caliphate had been permanently altered in the empire’s favor.

(d) the revival of byzantine learning began toward the end of the eighth century.
---------------------------------------------
7. according to the author, "the common explanation" (line 28) of connections between economic, military, and cultural development is

Therefore, Byzantine military achievements led to economic advances, which in turn led to cultural revival.

(c) not applicable to the byzantine revival as a whole, but does perhaps accurately describe limited periods during the revival
