of our passage, this sentence does everything to gift us with the definition of "built environment"
except stick a big bow on top.
Anyway, we know we're looking for the answer choice that captures the passage's neutral
presentation of what a "built environment" is.
So check out choices (A), (B), and (D). They all make it sound like the passage is trying say that "built
environments" are awesome and everybody should want one.
Though the passage is generally positive, it's not too over the top in its support,
so these choices all get kicked to the curb.
(E) claims that the passage hates "built
environments" and wants other people to hate them, too.
Well, lot of haters. So cross out (E). The passage isn't doing this either.
Since the passage is neutral and only focuses on schooling the reader about the built environment—(C)
is the correct answer.
We hope everybody learned something today.
