public official law making runs public Marjorie really All right

00:31

paragraph five which is sentences sixteen Eighteen here should be

00:36

moved where to make the paper more effective and hear

00:39

the potential answers way Well the best thing to do

00:43

with this kind of question is to re read the

00:44

paragraph and then mentally cut and paste it into the

00:47

place Each answer choice suggests a well fully caffeinated re

00:52

here Any civil rights activists believe that lost films were

00:55

unfair They also believe that leads treason is racially biased

00:58

The only way to reform these unfair laws so that

01:01

i can win back the voting rights act can all

01:05

right Well good thing we just had our mental cut

01:07

and paste er so let's get to it Option a

01:11

is definitely at paragraph five would make a bad opening

01:13

paragraph if it were placed at the top of the

01:15

paper it would refer to a bunch of stuff that

01:17

hasn't been explained yet which would be weird and confusing

01:20

Like our wacky uncle who tells long rambling stories thanksgiving

01:23

you want to go Option b isn't much better Honestly

01:27

it's Not better at all again paragraph five would be

01:29

weird here because it talked about things that have yet

01:32

to be set up by the paper answer C is

01:34

right on track We do need to put paragraph five

01:37

later in the paper but we're gonna have to take

01:40

more drastic measures and putting it after paragraph six Placing

01:44

it after the sixth paragraph wouldn't work so well because

01:47

the issue of the huge percentage of minorities that air

01:49

disenfranchised doesn't come up until paragraph seven So if we

01:53

hop on that train a logic we have to conclude

01:55

that choice dee is the right answer Paragraph five follows

01:58

up on the ideas in paragraph seven by saying that

02:00

the justice system itself is biased against minorities which makes

02:04

the disenfranchisement of minority felons even worse And how are

02:08

we defining minorities here anyway All right well this paragraph

02:11

also works here because it's a strong conclusion since the

02:15

last line gives us a solution to the problem of

02:17

disenfranchised felons Now if only we could get dogs the

02:21

right to vote the world might be a better place 00:02:24.333 --> [endTime] She doesn't trust it
