In case anybody was confused, we meant historical dates, not the tasty fruit of the date palm.
Both passages give their own points of view about what an immigrant might expect upon
arrival on Ellis Island,
so we can nix choice (B).
We can say no to choice (C) as well, since Gender is a huge concern for Passage 2...
...which zeroes in on how some women were discriminated against
when trying to enter the country.
Choice (E) is foiled by the mad skills of the seamstresses mentioned in line 90.
This leaves us with choice (D).
Neither of the passages includes an anecdote, which is a short, amusing story...
so (D) is the answer for us.
