DISCUSSION: This question is asking for the author’s opinion, not Garcia’s opinion. Be careful not to choose something Garcia believes, since the author generally disagrees with Garcia.
- On line 10, the author said that the activists of the 1960s-70s were more militant, but the author didn’t say why they were. And further, on lines 28-36 the author disagreed that Mexican American groups were truly united by liberal reform.
- CORRECT. Lines 28-36 say this directly. Garcia thinks that liberal reform unified Mexican Americans, but the author points to the debates among Mexican American groups as a sign that they weren’t truly united.
- This contradicts lines 28-36. The author believes the debates were so sharp that there was no consensus.
- The author said that the Congress and the League (lines 18-24) had differing opinions, but the author didn’t say how much support each group had.
- The author didn’t say this. On lines 28-36, the author says that Mexican American groups were divided. But they didn’t say that this division caused problems.
