Which one of the following statements most accurately describes the function of the final paragraph?

Paragraph break

This may just be a problem on my I pad, but the passage only had three paragraphs rather than 4. This made it difficult to answer this question.

Hi I picked c but it was wrong. I thought the final paragraph argues that bipolar system is more stable in the case of Cold War so final paragraph should be a case in favour of bipolar system as indicated in the stability it provided in Cold War. Why is C wrong? Why isD) correct? Thank you

@mehran @instructor The issue with the indent has still not been fixed (at least on the computer version) as multiple people have pointed out. I understand you all must be busy, but it's fairly frustrating to pay so much money for a prep course that isn't willing to fix an issue like this for over a year

Hi @jingjingxiao11111@gmail.com,

Happy to help!

What is the argument in the previous paragraph alluded to by answer choice (D)? We must reassess the assumptions underlying the concepts of multipolar and bipolar systems due to the shift in the geopolitical landscape following the end of the Cold War.

The final paragraph outlines that the multipolar system in Europe in the early 20th century led to the conditions for both WWI and WWII whereas the Cold War may have created the conditions necessary for peace in the second half of the 20th century. In this way, the final paragraph uses 20th century European history to outline why we must reassess the assumptions underlying the concepts of multipolar and bipolar systems.

Answer choice (C) is incorrect because there is currently a multipolar system in Europe and the passage does not go so far as to argue that there is or should be a bipolar system instead. Rather, the author simply claims that the multipolar system in Europe may result in insecurity in the region.

Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any further questions.
