the whole passage, rather than one that focuses on the small stuff.
The passage does say that it took a few hours to make it through Ellis Island, but overall
it doesn't focus on long lines.
We can send (A) back to the boat.
Answer choice (D) is also way too concerned with the details.
The author spends about a sentence and a half talking about the types of diseases that could
keep people out of the country. (D) is a definite no.
This passage does talk about the harsh conditions that third class passengers had to deal with
while crossing the Atlantic, but it actually claims that things weren't so bad once they
reached Ellis Island.
Choice (B) is denied access for outright lying.
The passage also talks about the stages of the journey a little bit, by discussing the
hardships of the voyage, but it's just not the main point.
Sorry, (E), you've been rejected. The only answer choice that fits here is (C),
because Passage 1 discusses what different classes of passengers usually encountered
when immigrating to the U.S..
So it's C, as in "Citizen."
