Official Solution:


Which of the following best completes the passage below?

Credit card companies are as concerned about identity theft as private citizens are. With only a short string of digits such as a social security or credit card number, thieves can often gain online access to everything from bank accounts to travel itineraries, creating large-scale problems. Anxiety over the vulnerability of personal information has led to stronger protective measures and is the impetus for .


A. longer jail sentences for those convicted of committing online identity theft
B. credit card companies limiting the amount of money they will return to customers who are victims of identity theft
C. some customers choosing to maintain several lower-limit credit cards rather than have a single card with a very high credit limit
D. fewer people than ever before applying for new credit card accounts
E. a new kind of credit card that uses fingerprint authentication to generate a second code required for checkout


Situation: Anxiety over the possibility of identity theft has led credit card companies to take stronger protective measures.

Reasoning: Which is an example of a protective measure taken by credit card companies? The first sentence makes it clear that the passage is about the concern that credit card companies show over the possibility of identity theft. The second sentence gives examples of the problems identity theft can cause, and the third introduces the idea of protective measures. The correct option will specify one protective measure taken to prevent identity theft.
  1. This option identifies a legal measure taken after the fact, not a protective measure.
  2. The amount of money returned to victims is outside the scope of this passage.
  3. This is a security measure that an individual might take, but it is not performed by a credit card company.
  4. This option does not deal with a protective measure taken by a credit card company.
  5. This option correctly identifies a protective measure taken by credit card companies to prevent identity theft.

Answer: E

I think this is a poor-quality question and I don't agree with the explanation. Anxiety over the vulnerability of personal information" is the noun in this sentence.
"has led" and "is the" must be parallel. Therefore, the answer cannot be E, which is one example of "protective measure".
