Hello Probus may I indulge myself to share my view with your permission :-)

To me the prior sentence is : 'Ironically, though, child labor legislation pitted women of different classes against one another ' - this is the assertion made by the author of the piece.

Now one class of women ( presumably , white middle-class women reformers ) think that : child labor and industrial home work were equally inhumane practices that should be outlawed

And the other class of women , working class women, (as recently observed by the women historians) do not share the aforementioned view.

Thus, the highlighted part (women historians have recently observed) is proving and/or supporting the point that two classes of women shared different view.

Hope this helps!!

Probus - First, right POE bring you to the the right choice this means you are doing right things. kudos to that. Regarding your doubt, You have missed one simple thing. choice A is talking about "the preceding sentence", while you have not mentioned it. look at the situation this way.

Add this part to explanation , try to make its connection with rest, Hope you will get the explanation on your own.

I could not understand the solution of question 3. How can it provide assertion of preceding sentence because preceding sentence . I think it is not supporting it is just explaining the preceding sentence .
Please correct if i am wrong.

Hello Piggu18 ....... I tried my explanation for this Q3 earlier. I am not sure if you have missed that ( if not .. then the below would be a reiteration)

Below is my take :

To me the prior sentence is : 'Ironically, though, child labor legislation pitted women of different classes against one another ' - this is the assertion made by the author of the piece.

Now one class of women ( presumably , white middle-class women reformers ) think that : child labor and industrial home work were equally inhumane practices that should be outlawed

And the other class of women , working class women, (as recently observed by the women historians) do not share the aforementioned view.

Thus, the highlighted part (women historians have recently observed) is proving and/or supporting the point that two classes of women shared different view.

Hope this helps!!

No Problem...... U r wc.
Just make it a habit to go through the earlier discussion ..... some of them are not only good, but also provides wide perspectives . Very essential in GMAT ....... its all about how well and/or one can reason/analyze (eka think).

:-) All the best.
