Tagged: #WRONG #ANSWER
I was answering my *READING PASSAGE SAMPLE 2* and after checking out the correct ones, I noticed that the correct answer for question number 20 was NOT.
20) It took over 350 years for the theory and mechanism of continental drift to be fully developed. Answer: True?
Let’s look out and read paragraph A and analyze it:
“It would take over 300 years for the theory to be FULLY DEVELOPED, and fifty years after that for the mechanism of the phenomenon to be discovered”
In my opinion, the author means that it took over 300 years to be developed, not 350. The fifty years were for discovering the phenomenon that causes continental drift.
Please let me know your opinion, and If maybe an admin could check it would be great.
