Hi there,

I'll give you my reasoning, please let me know if you spot gap.
Passage tells us
According to Whig propaganda,
women who turned out at the
party’s rallies gathered information
that enabled them to mold party-loyal
families, reminded men of moral values
that transcended party loyalty, and
conferred moral standing on the party


The highlighted portions are almost verbatim to the wording in E: women’s presence at rallies would enhance the moral standing of the party


B. women were the most important influences on political attitudes within a family
Most important influences? ummm not sure about that. Tad extreme.
important influence? yes, sure. but Most is wrong.

Hope it helps. Let me know of any doubts.
RzS



why is D wrong here? It's implied that the women were invited because they have an impact on the voting behaviors

you know, I too kept D as a contender. But then i realized participation/turning out in rallies is not the same as demonstrations, as mentioned in D. "demonstrations", in this context, almost has connotation of "protest", which is not correct.

Regards

4. According to the passage, which of the following was true of Virginia Democrats in the mid-1850’s?

A. They feared that their party was losing its strong moral foundation.

B. They believed that the Whigs’ inclusion of women in party politics had led to the Whigs’ success in many elections.

C. They created an ideology that justified the inclusion of women in party politics.

D. They wanted to demonstrate that they were in support of the woman’s rights movement.

E. They imitated the Whigs’ efforts to include women in the rituals of party politics

Can someone confirm my thinking: C is wrong because democrats did not "create" the ideology; they "assimilated it". Correct?
