DISCUSSION: This is a detail question. I said in the passage analysis section that you don’t need to memorize details, you just need to know where they are.
This question is a good example. It’s asking about the FTP as a whole. That information is all in the first paragraph. So you can just check that paragraph to eliminate answers.

- See line 10.
- See line 12.
- See lines 5-7.
