Ferri does suggest that crime is progressively increasing.
However, this is only one point among many and doesn't come close to summing up the
whole passage. Choice (A) is incorrect.
Our guy does give us a brief tour through the history of criminal law.
Once again, however, this is only part of the point he's making, so we can leave choice
(C) by the wayside.
It doesn't seem like there'd be much point in writing an entire book about criminal sociology
if you didn't think it wouldn't do anybody any good.
Choice (D) is a definite no.
(B) correctly describes the overall purpose of the passage.
Ferri wants to show just why criminal sociology is useful in addressing the problem of crime.
For... people who consider crime a problem, that is.
