DISCUSSION: All of the wrong answers can be eliminated using the passage, and the right answer contradicts the passage.
Usually it takes too long to check each answer (but if you have the time, you should come back and do so). What you should do instead is check the 1-2 answers you’re not sure about.
You can be 90% sure about the right answer, but it’s better to check and be 100% sure. Otherwise, mistakes creep in.

- See lines 43-46 and the whole second paragraph. Amateurishness is the incongruity. Also lines 13-16. The author thinks Cameron’s work succeeds because it has a silly aspect.
- See lines 38-40. We may believe that actors are real, but perhaps only some of the time.
- CORRECT. See lines 14-20. The author thinks Cameron’s work succeeded even though (and because) Cameron failed in her intentions.
