Not only is the race special because it takes place on a special day, but it also has a rich, over three-decade tradition. While the Boston Marathon can declare it is the oldest road race in America, few 10K’s can claim they’ve been around longer than the Peachtree Road Race. (4) The race began modestly in 1970. (5) There were only 110 people in the race. By 1980, just ten years later, the race had grown from 110 runners to over 20,000 people and had nearly outgrown the four-lane street.
Which is the BEST meaning for modestly as it is used in the selected sentence?
A) suddenly
B) completely covering
C) showy; ostentatious
D) lack of pretentiousness; simplicity

I need help with this but I think the answer is b. Which of these statements LEAST reveals the author's favorable bias toward the Road Race?
A) Not only is the race special because it takes place on a special day, but it also has a rich, over three-decade tradition.
B) By 1980, just ten years later, the race had grown from 110 runners to over 20,000 people and had nearly outgrown the four-lane street.
C) It is easy to see why the Peachtree Road Race has become a popular tradition for both the competitive world-class athlete and the weekend jogger alike.
D) Add to that mix--the amazing crowd cheering loudly for the entire 6.2 mile race, the prestigious t-shirt, and the ability to run in the same race as those on running magazine covers--and you have the recipe for the world’s best 10K road race.

Yes, D for the first and B for the second.

What's the hurry? Did you procrastinate?
