the answer choices are extremely close to each other. Look at this:

3.Which of the following best states the function of the passage as a whole?

A. To contrast the views held by the Socialist party and the boycotting women in the cost-of-living issue.

B. To analyze the assumption underlying opposing viewpoints with the NY socialist party of 1917

C. To provide a historical perspective on different approaches to the resolution of cost-of-living issue.

D. To chronicle the sequence of events that lead to the NY socialist party's emergency as a political power.

E. To analyze the motivations behind the socialist party's involvement in the women's suffrage movement.

Can somebody explain why in Q4 E is incorrect?
In the passage it states:
While some Socialists did view price protests as a direct step toward socialism, most Socialists ultimately sought to divert the cost-of-living movement into alternative channels of protest. Union organizing, they argued, was the best method through which to combat the high cost of living.

Doesn't that mean they thought it was a good complement to Union organization? I don't see understand how "furthering goals" as mentioned in option B is correct?

Socialists wanted to divert the cost-of-living movement into Union organizing and not complement it. It was an expedient that was useful only insofar as it furthered other goals (suffrage and socialism). Socialists had entirely different goals and they were not deeply concerned with high cost of living.
