DISCUSSION: Lines 34-39 describe failure to take employment. The author thinks that specific performance should usually not be ordered in such cases.
Lines 46-48 also provide important information: courts often don’t have the resources to enforce specific performance in employment cases.
- This contradicts the passage. It’s awarding money that lets the court avoid troublesome aspects. See lines 50-54.
- This contradicts the passage. Lines 46-48 suggest that specific performance is more difficult for a court to order. The court would have to exhaustively monitor the employee’s job performance.
- CORRECT. Lines 46-48 suggest this is correct. The courts usually don’t have the resources to monitor an employee’s performance and see if they are fulfilling the contract. If you don’t have the resources to enforce an order then the order likely won’t be successful.
- This contradicts lines 30-39. The author thinks monetary damages are best. Usually, if someone refuses to comply with the court, you either garnish their wages or put them in jail.
- The author doesn’t say what courts actually do, but the entirety of the final paragraph is aimed at showing that specific performance in employment cases is a bad idea which courts don’t have the resources to enforce. And we can presume that courts generally aren’t totally deranged.
