@Ceci and @Shiyi-Zhang,

Great question. When reading RC passages, it's always a good idea to
silently force yourself to think about what the main point of the
passage was as soon as you're finished reading. These main
point/primary purpose questions are frequently asked, so having a
general understanding of the main point will help you out a ton.

The question stem says, "The passage as a whole can most accurately be
described as..."

In the passage, the author discusses problems that are associated with
the constitutional reforms that are geared toward protecting the
rights of aboriginal people. The author provides two examples of
situations showing the Canadian courts' difficulties in interpreting
the constitutional reforms to demonstrate how the very general
language that is included in these reforms has led to inconsistencies
in the protection of aboriginal rights.

In looking at the answer choices, (C) says, "an examination of
problems associated with efforts to protect certain rights," and this
matches up very well with our analysis of the primary purpose of the
passage. (C) says that the author is looking at problems associated
with efforts to protect certain rights, and this is exactly what we
had said the other was focused on doing. This is our answer choice.

Does this help? Let us know if you have any more questions!
