DISCUSSION: The second paragraph of passage B discusses how we can justly deal with Native American claims to land that was taken from them.
This relates to the final paragraph of passage A. That paragraph discussed how we can fix past illegal transfer of property. Passage A called this the principle of rectification.
- Passage B isn’t developing theory. Instead, passage B is talking about what we could do in practice to prevent injustice to Native Americans and to fix past injustices committed against Native Americans.
- The second paragraph of passage B isn’t trying to support a theory with facts.
- The two texts are not structurally parallel. Passage A is entirely theoretical, while passage B is practical.
- CORRECT. The second paragraph of passage B argues that we should fix past theft of Native American property. Passage A describes the moral theory behind fixing injustices.
- Ridiculous. Passage A described a theory that recommended fixing past injustices. And the second paragraph of passage B describes a specific case where injustice should be fixed.
