Here's one: In NJ, "meadows" were more than mockery by residents because of the foul smell and insect-infested habitt. Today, in Meadowland, a major sport center is located there. Directly across is 18000 acres of land that overlap several communities. This unstable "marsh" is selling about 10000$/acre making a prized location throughtout.
according to the passage, which one of these is true for "meadows"?
a)includes more land as one might expect
b) site of sports complex
c) is just a swampland
d) grown in value
oh yea; my choice: c. cause it currently just a marshland.
Is this correct?
No, it is not just a marshland...a sports complex is there.
But it says the sports complex is located in Meadowland, supposely a city. Whereas the meadows (foul smell) mostly like to contribute a swampland.
Or Im just too confused?
Meadowland includes the present swamp, and the developed areas over the old swamp.
I agree with you.
This is a poor question. I believe that all four answers are true.
No. cant be. It's multiple choice. Choice A + D doesn't contribute to the passage. Choice A is wrong because one can assume the land is small, if compared with others . Choice D is false because it didn't say the previous price.
am I on the ball-part?
I finally see the answer. :-) Bobpursley is right.
It says that the sports complex is located "there" -- referring to the "meadows."
Stating that directly across from the sports complex is a marsh doesn't mean that this area was part of the meadows.
But "there" can also be referred to Meadowland, and not "meadows".
In "in Meadowland, a major sport center is located there"
Ahh well, I give up and take B as the answer.. Thank you all.
This is a poorly worded statement.
