Hi,

you can not use C in the first blank because the book apparently is without meaning or purpose so B is the right one. The book is NOT with bias or I.E. the answer C as you pointed out

The second choice is E, which means a digression: in other words what the book narrates is a bit a deviation from a pivotal argument BUT nonetheless this was useful, indeed an asset from which you learn or could learn a lot.

Tough one.

Hope this helps

Thanks. Is there a clue somewhere to suggest that his book was aimless? I couldn't figure that out.

Also, is there a guide or link you can show me on how to create a table? I have more questions and would love to add those instead of you having to edit them for me.

Readers may initially be irked by the book’s apparent (i)______ but, once immersed in the author’s prose, they may come to regard the work’s (ii)______ as an asset.


As I have highlighted the sentence, IF you focus on solely a part of the sentence or passage or whatever it is you lose the grasp of the entire meaning.

You must catch the overall meaning, that is the tricky part of GRE test.

As for your request how to post a question in the right way, nothing more simple: follow this post I have created and that was there as announcement in main verbal section :-D :wink:

qv-how-to-post-a-gre-question-the-easy-way-2362.html

Ask everything you wanna if you need further assistance.

regards

PS: we are working to create a tag that makes automatic the creation of one blank, two or three but is not that simple.
