I think it is passage one can anyone help verify if I am correct

1. The old/new contract is another principle for writing clear closed-form prose. Beginning your sentences with something old – something that links to what has gone before – and then ending your sentences with new information that advances the argument is what the old/new contract asks writers to do. An effect called coherence, which is closely related to unity, is created by following this principle. Whereas the clear relationship between the topic sentence and the body of the paragraph is called unity, the clear relationship between one sentence and the next is what coherence relates to.

    The following is from a handbook at Florida State University:

    · Try the “old-new contract”—Advance an argument or idea by linking each piece of new information to what’s appeared before it. When a writer neglects to link old and new information, a paragraph may read more like a random series of observations than a coherent discussion.
