DISCUSSION: Communities are random groups of people, and therefore they are diverse (lines 55-59). They are usually located in the same place, and people treat each other well because they depend on each other (lines 1-5).
It also seems important that community members know each other for a while, and they meet each other repeatedly.
- This sounds like a random group of people who are in the same place. Presumably they treat each other well too; their survival depends on it.
- We’re not told what the political organization is. There are some that are pretty diverse in their views. Since the students are all at the same place, and are diverse, this sounds like a community.
- CORRECT. These doctors are meeting each other only once. They’re all from the same demographic group: doctors. Doctors tend to be well-off, well-educated and scientifically minded; they’re not a very diverse group in that sense. And though these doctors are from different hospitals, hospitals tend to be very similar.
- These teachers depend on each other, so presumably they treat each other well, as community members should. They come from diverse neighborhoods, and they are all in one location. Sounds like a community.
- This sounds like a diverse group that depends on each other. They meet repeatedly in the same place.
