Hi Danaj,

What is the strategy to adopt in this kind of question ?

I had answer A but when I read your explanation it makes sense. Do we have to look for a general answer ?

The answer is indeed D, as noted in the thread above.

But let me reiterate a point made above that to answer Reading Comprehension questions, you must NOT bring in any "outside" knowledge to help you. What I mean is, ALL of the information you need to answer the question is contained within the passage. Ignore what you know about the real world, other things you have read - even other questions on the exam!
