Hello , I have question on blue book page 406 number 24 (critical reading section) the answer is (E)emphasize the author’s position but can answer also be (d) suggest a focus fr further research ??
That last paragraph says: “So let me state this explicitly: A city is a natural system, and we can study it in the same way we study other natural systems and how they got to be the way they are.”
The italics provide the emphasis, and the fact that what is italicized is the main idea of the passage makes E the perfect choice. There’s no suggestion there. He says “we can,” not “somebody should.” That’s a statement of possibility, not a suggestion.
