Question

The passage suggests that Professor Clive Holmes would most likely agree with which of the following statements?
  1. Most historians distort reality by focusing on national concerns to the exclusion of local concerns.
  2. National issues are best understood from the perspective of those at the local level.
  3. Local histories of seventeenth-century English villages have contributed little to the understanding of village life.
  4. An understanding of seventeenth-century English local institutions requires a consideration of national issues.
  5. The "country community" school of seventeenth- century English history distorts historical evidence in order to establish continuity between old and new institutions.


Solution

The correct option is D An understanding of seventeenth-century English local institutions requires a consideration of national issues.
In the last paragraph, it is given that the issue of removing all national issues to study a local community was exposed by Professor Clive Holmes. It is also given that such an assumption is a mistake. Hence we can select option (a) as the answer.
