pininfarina, watch out for the time frame. The question asks about the 1920's, but the legislation wasn't passed until the early 1930's. This allows us to know for sure that the practice of creating unions with company money was still legal throughout the 1920's.


Hi DmitryFarber,
Can you kindly explain the answer to the 4th question?
The passage suggests that if the grievances of porters in one part of the United States had been different from those of porters in another part of the country, which of the following would have been the case?

(A) It would have been more difficult for the Pullman Company to have had a single labor policy.
(B) It would have been more difficult for the Brotherhood to control its channels of communication.
(C) It would have been more difficult for the Brotherhood to build its membership.
(D) It would have been easier for the Pullman Company's union to attract membership.
(E) It would have been easier for the Brotherhood to threaten strikes.

I chose B instead of C as it is mentioned in the passage that their segregated life protected the union's internal communications from interception.
I did not get the concept of membership in option C.

Was a good passage and difficult passage.

My answers were

1.C
Although Randolph fellow faced 'Formidable' obst, the first para says he was successful in his task.
So he reduced the contention to some extent.

2. Got this wrong - Didnt know what Ambivalent meant
Generally, authors who write such stuff are mature people and they should behave in such manner as well
IMO
A - Sympathy - Sounds emphatic but not to brother hood
B- Concerns - Author mentioned that Randolph won, no need to worry about this amazing fellow and his efforts
C - Mixed feeling, Such an author will never have a mixed feeling about such serious topic such as this.
E - Regret - Is too strong an emotion to bring in the sensible passage.

Left with D - Still not sure of the appreciation, but this is the one left.

3. Cant figure this one out

4. D - Porters Isolation worked in Brotherhood's favor opposite of that will work in Pullmans favour

5. A - Passage says, Pullman made its own union

'An additional obstacle was the union that Pullman itself had formed, which weakened support among Black workers for an independent entity.
'

6. This was a good one
POE left b/w A and B.

passage supplies information that Mr. Randolph wasnt very happy with the prohibition of blah blah, end of third para so he decided to do
something.. Bingo
