Re: The profession of engineering—which, by the way, is merely the adaptin [#permalink]
Para 1 - Engineering is an isolated profession.
Para 2 - Engineering profession has great power
Para 3 - Engineering has more likely made many good things possible than bad ones

Question 1
(E) To discuss a unique aspect of the engineering profession and highlight the importance of engineering.
Unique as it is very isolated while others do provide an idea to the layman and the next two paras show its importance

Question 2
(A) A layman probably knows more about law than he does about engineering.
Supported by para 1 - "Laymen know something about law, a little about medicine, quite a lot—nowadays—about metaphysics. But laymen know nothing about engineering."

Question 3
(D) To emphasise his point that the layman knows almost nothing about engineering
Supported by para 1 - "Indeed, a source of common amusement among engineers is the peculiar fact that the average layman cannot differentiate between the man who runs a locomotive and the man who designs a locomotive."
