Do we know how to decipher the passage... so we can find out where to pick up our tickets?
Assuming we don't run into any scalpers? As with an earlier question, we have to ask
ourselves where we're likely to find this information.
It's general info about Shmoopapalooza, so we can concentrate our efforts on the first
and last paragraphs. At the bottom of the first paragraph... boom!
There's a mention of tickets... it says they're going fast!
Which... doesn't give us the answer, unfortunately.
However, it DOES help us ELIMINATE one option... choice D.
If tickets are going fast... then there must still be some left. So... nice try, D.
Is the bottom paragraph any more help?
Sure is... the very last line of the passage tells us to go to the website to get our tickets.
We don't even have to worry about options A and C... we already have our answer.
So choice B it is.
As in... "Buh-bye, super-long passage."
