Please try to post RCs in the correct format, with the timer.

This is pretty difficult to read.

Thanks.

Hi roopika,

I agree, not easy. My hypothesis for why D is the OA is this:

The key word in answer D is 'context'. I.e. the Athelete's success is explained because of the context in which they grew up.

In the passage Scarfe attributes Roosevelt's success to the context in which she was brought up - i.e. that group of priviliged women.

My question with E would be that it's subject is 'a group of women' whearas in the question we're just talking about one woman.

What do you think?

James

Hi plumber250,
Can you please shed some light on how I can eliminate Answer choice A?
Which of the following studies would proceed in a way most similar to the way in which, according to the passage. Scharf’s book interprets Eleanor Roosevelt’s career?

A. An exploration of the activities of a wealthy social reformer in terms of the ideals held by the reformer

The passage states this about Scharf's book: "Scharf’s Eleanor Roosevelt, written In 1987, depicts a generation of privileged women...Their views and their lives were full of contradictions", and "they demanded equal treatment" among other things.

Doesn't this match the answer choice A, which talks about a wealthy social reformer (a contradiction in itself), his ideals (views)?

The answers according to me -

1. A

2. B

3. A

A. An exploration of the activities of a wealthy social reformer in terms of the ideals held by the
reformer - "Roosevelt was privileged (though not necessarily wealthy) but what she did was according to her ideology" - Correct Answer
B. A history of the leaders of a political party which explained how the conflicting aims of its
individual leaders thwarted and diverted the activities of each leader - Irrelevant to context
C. An account of the legislative career of a conservative senator which showed his goals to have been
derived from a national conservative movement of which the senator was a part - "Roosevelt's goals were not derived from any movement but from her social ideology"
D. A biography of a famous athlete which explained her high level of motivation in terms of the kind
of family in which she grew up - "She is concerned about labor laws etc. , not because of her family"
E. A history of the individuals who led the movement to end slavery in the United States which
attributed the movement’s success to the efforts of those exceptional individuals - "Roosevelt's efforts were not necessarily successful, passage doesn't confirm" "Also, Scharf mentions her social ideology, not her success"

4. E

Please share the OA if possible.

Hi Even i have the same query but i came up with some reasoning and wanted to discuss .
Here is the second rewritten
Which of the following studies would proceed in a way most similar to the way in which, according to the passage. Scharf’s book interprets Eleanor Roosevelt’s career?

A. An exploration of the activities of a wealthy social reformer in terms of the ideals held by the reformer

B. A history of the leaders of a political party which explained how the conflicting aims of its individual leaders thwarted and

C. An account of the legislative career of a conservative senator which showed his goals to have been derived from a national conservative movement of which the senator was a part

D. A biography of a famous athlete which explained her high level of motivation in terms of the kind of family in which she grew up

E. A history of the individuals who led the movement to end slavery in the United States which attributed the movement’s success to the efforts of those exceptional individuals

Lois
Scharf’s Eleanor Roosevelt, written
In 1987, depicts a generation of
Privileged women, born in the late
Nineteenth century and maturing
(50)
in the twentieth, who made the
transition from old patterns of
female association to new ones.
Their views and their lives were full
(55)
female social networks but began
to integrate women into mainstream
politics; they demanded equal
treatment but also argued that
women’s maternal responsibilities
(60)
made them both wards and representatives
of the public interest.

If we read the except of the passage we can see that the author wants to highlight the contradiction mentioned in the passage .
Option D tells about the biography of the famous athlete and his motivation to be a result of the family in which grew but it did not explain how the athlete acquired motivation.
