Explanation


A quick overview of the paragraph shows that its topic is the encouragement of invention and innovation. This implies that Blank (i) should be filled with “come through,” which emphasizes the importance of invention; the other choices suggest that invention is irrelevant or somehow harmed by growth. Again, the only one of the choices for Blank (ii) that continues the theme of encouraging invention is “aside from supporting.” Finally, the second sentence emphasizes the importance for innovation of a strong patent office, and this thought is reaffirmed in the following quotation from Mr. Russell, which requires “protect” in Blank (iii).

Hi,

Would you be kind enough to explain me why it should not be disseminate for the third blank? The sentence says, the future lay in giving children the tool to think creatively and motivation to invent. Why it should not be disseminate instead of protect? We spread the information to provide motivation for the future generation. Did i understood incorrectly?

the government’s greatest role in assuring continuing innovation is promoting a strong, modern patent office.

essentially the patent office is copyright. So we need to patent the invention before to disseminate. You went too far in the stem. The answer laid before
