Still confused between A and B. The statement also shows that clawbacks can prevent malfeasance. Why are we cancelling out A.

we are rejecting option A because the example shows how malfeasance was addressed, it does not say anywhere how that scandal helped prevent malfeasance. hope this helps ­

Explanation

­1. The first paragraph plays what role in the passage?

Explanation

The first paragraph of the passage defines the term "clawback" and introduces its usage in various contexts, with a recent focus on executive bonuses.

A. The first paragraph does not set up a direct contrast between different ideas or concepts. Instead, it introduces the concept of clawback and its application, particularly in discussions of executive bonuses.

B. The first paragraph does not present a theory or hypothesis. Instead, it provides a straightforward definition of the term "clawback" and its usage in different contexts.

C. This option aligns closely with the role of the first paragraph, this is second best option. It establishes the premise by defining the term "clawback" and laying the groundwork for the subsequent discussion of its application in corporate governance, particularly in relation to executive bonuses.

D. This option accurately describes the main function of the first paragraph. It offers a clear definition of the term "clawback" to ensure that readers understand its meaning before delving into the subsequent discussion.

E. The first paragraph does not present evidence to support an argument or claim. Instead, it provides foundational information by defining the term "clawback" and introducing its usage in different contexts.

4. John Cassidy’s attitude toward the practice of clawbacks might be described as

Explanation

(A) suggests a positive outlook or expectation. However, the passage does not convey any sense of optimism regarding clawbacks. Instead, it presents skepticism about their effectiveness and doubts about their impact on corporate behavior. Therefore, option (A) is incorrect.(B)  implies a sense of interest or inquiry. While the passage discusses the implementation and implications of clawbacks, it does not indicate a neutral sense of curiosity. Rather, it presents a critical analysis of clawbacks, highlighting concerns and uncertainties. Therefore, option (B) is incorrect.

(C) suggests skepticism or doubt, which aligns with the tone of the passage. The passage raises questions about the effectiveness and fairness of clawbacks, citing concerns from SEC Commissioner Troy Paredes and ambiguity regarding their impact on corporate regulation. Option (C) is correct.

(D) implies a sense of assurance or certainty. However, the passage does not convey confidence in the effectiveness of clawbacks. Instead, it presents skepticism and uncertainty about their regulatory value.

(E) suggests a negative judgment or criticism. While the passage does present a critical analysis of clawbacks, it does not explicitly express outright disapproval. Instead, it discusses concerns and uncertainties regarding their implementation and impact.
