Do we know how to decipher the passage... so we can find out where to pick up our tickets?

00:30

Assuming we don't run into any scalpers? As with an earlier question, we have to ask

00:36

ourselves where we're likely to find this information.

00:39

It's general info about Shmoopapalooza, so we can concentrate our efforts on the first

00:44

and last paragraphs. At the bottom of the first paragraph... boom!

00:48

There's a mention of tickets... it says they're going fast!

00:52

Which... doesn't give us the answer, unfortunately.

00:55

However, it DOES help us ELIMINATE one option... choice D.

00:59

If tickets are going fast... then there must still be some left. So... nice try, D.

01:03

Is the bottom paragraph any more help?

01:08

Sure is... the very last line of the passage tells us to go to the website to get our tickets.

01:12

We don't even have to worry about options A and C... we already have our answer.

01:17

So choice B it is.

01:19

As in... "Buh-bye, super-long passage."
