Default Re: Reading Comprehension Passage With Questions And Answer

As you have asked about the Reading Comprehension passage with questions
and answer, check belwo for the information

The railroad was not the first institution to impose regularity on

society, or to draw attention to the importance of precise

timekeeping. For as long as merchants have set out their wares at

Line daybreak and communal festivities have been celebrated, people

(5) have been in rough agreement with their neighbors as to the time of

day. The value of this tradition is today more apparent than ever.

Were it not for public acceptance of a single yardstick of time,

social life would be unbearably chaotic: the massive daily transfers

of goods, services, and information would proceed in fits and

(10) starts; the very fabric of modern society would begin to unravel.

Example I



What is the main idea of the passage?



In modern society we must make more time for our neighbors.

The traditions of society are timeless.

An accepted way of measuring time is essential for the smooth functioning
of society.

Society judges people by the times at which they conduct certain
activities.



The main idea of the passage is that societies need to agree about how time
is measured in order to function smoothly. Therefore, you should choose
answer C.

Example II



In line 6, the phrase "this tradition" refers to



the practice of starting the business day at dawn

friendly relations between neighbors

the railroad's reliance on time schedules

people's agreement on the measurement of time



The phrase "this tradition" refers to the preceding clause, "people have been
in rough agreement with their neighbors as to the time of day." Therefore,
you should choose answer D.
