    What does your text say?

  3. How does your teacher expect you to find this information?

  4. Let me add to Ms. Sue's comments. Since we have not seen the article, it's impossible for us to agree or disagree with your answer, if this refers to a specific article. Any non-fiction article on any topic will aim to accomplish both B and D. In fact, both B and D say much the same thing, just in different words. If the author offers his/her opinion of how to interpret the information presented, or tries to convince the reader of a particular point of view, it's no longer reportage, the presentation of information, but an opinion piece.
