Clearly, the book indicates that________.

which of the following best completes the passage?

a)Life in the valley is tougher than previously thought -Correct. Highlighted portion is the conclusion and this option complements that.
b) it is time Western readers knew about life in the valley -out of scope
c) books are capable of spreading awareness about certain geographies ignored by other media -out of scope
d) government should focus on providing education and healthcare, and countering terrorism -The argument doesn't talk about the role of government
e) the valley government is unfair to its citizens. -unfair? too strong to be correct

Hope your preparation is going well. As it can be seen that there is a word clearly present in the last line which shows that the sentence will be completed by presenting the conclusion.
In such questions, the approach is to rightly identify the facts presented in the arguments and see what can be logically interpreted from the information provided. POE tools are
1. Out of scope
2.Extreme language
A- All the details in this options are supported by the premise. It can be said that A is concluded from the details mentioned in the Premise.
The book surpasses all expectations-> same as the phrase “ previously thought”
Struggle for survival in valley-> Life in the valley is tougher. Hence A is the correct Answer.
B-not supported by the premise. There is no detail in the argument that can conclude with B.
C-out of scope/ generalization of facts in the argument.
D- premise doesn’t talk about anything that can conclude to D
E- cannot conclude that being negligent is unfair. Also, E says that all the government is unfair to the citizen( all residents), however, it cannot be concluded from the argument that all the citizens are suffering. Only a few/ most of the citizen( not all citizens) are affected by lack of education, poverty, health care and terrorism.
Hope it helps. consistency is the key to do well.
All the best!!
