One of the two passages below follows the old-new contract.
Identify it.

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.

Following this principle creates an effect called coherence, which is closely related to unity. Whereas unity refers to the clear relationship between the body of a paragraph and its topic sentence and between the parts and the whole, coherence refers to the clear relationship between one sentence and the next, between part and part.
