DISCUSSION: The passages discuss blackmail. The first passage discusses blackmail in our current North American legal system. The second passage discusses blackmail in the Roman system. The passages don’t have much in common beyond that.
- Only the first passage mentions triangular transactions (line 22). It doesn’t say that all triangular transactions are illegal. It only says blackmail is illegal because it is triangular.
- Rome didn’t have a right to free speech.
- CORRECT. Passage A discusses blackmail in modern North America. Passage B discusses blackmail in Ancient Rome.
- Passage A doesn’t discuss the history of blackmail. Passage B discusses blackmail in one historical period (ancient Rome), but that doesn’t make passage B a complete history of blackmail in every time period.
- This only covers passage A. Ancient Rome (passage B) didn’t even have blackmail, as such
