So you can prove an answer wrong if it has:
- Something not mentioned in passage A, or
- Something mentioned in passage B.
It’s easier to prove that something is mentioned, than it is to prove something is not mentioned. So the fastest way to eliminate answers is to prove they’re mentioned in passage B.
- Passage B mentions this in lines 54-56.
- CORRECT. Lines 31-34 mention this in passage A. Passage B never mentions this.
- Lines 38-41 mention this in passage B.
- Line 53 in passage B mentions the high cost of patent litigation.
- Lines 51-52 in passage B mention that many patents should not have been granted. (‘questionable nature of many software patents’)
