Hi GMATNinja,

7. It can be inferred from the passage that Woodrow Wilson’s ideas about the economic market
(A) encouraged those who “make the system work” (lines 45-46)
(B) perpetuated traditional legends about America
(C) revealed the prejudices of a man born wealthy
(D) foreshadowed the stock market crash of 1929
(E) began a tradition of presidential proclamations on economics

Initially i picked C for Q7, but in the second passage:

"....There is no pride in being an employee (Wilson asked for a return to the time when everyone was an employer).... "
hence the Ans
(B) perpetuated traditional legends about America.

Please let me know if my reasoning is correct.

Thanks and regadrs

That's right! The sentence you highlighted, along with the preceding sentence ("There is, in our legends, no heroism of the office clerk, no stable industrial work force of the people who actually make the system work.") indicate that (B) is the best answer.

For question 3, why C is a better answer over E?

Thank you so much!

So we are looking for someone who acts as a "regulative hand"--an authority that can call things to a halt. This would accurately describe a judge in a courtroom because the judge can regulate the trial, give orders to the attorneys/witnesses/jury/observers, decide when there will be breaks, and, sometimes, end the trial altogether.

However, I'll admit that this isn't a great question, and I don't think you'd see something like this on the GMAT. This is not an official passage, so I wouldn't worry too much about this question!
