Read the paragraph.

In such a spirit on my part and on yours we face our common difficulties. They concern, thank God, only material things. Values have shrunk to fantastic levels; taxes have risen; our ability to pay has fallen; government of all kinds is faced by serious curtailment of income; the means of exchange are frozen in the currents of trade; the withered leaves of industrial enterprise lie on every side; farmers find no markets for their produce; and the savings of many years in thousands of families are gone. More important, a host of unemployed citizens face the grim problem of existence, and an equally great number toil with little return. Only a foolish optimist can deny the dark realities of the moment.

What does the information in the paragraph reveal about the Franklin D. Roosevelt's purpose? (It is multiple choice)

A. Franklin D. Roosevelt's purpose is to blame those who caused the downfall of the economy.
B. Franklin D. Roosevelt's purpose is to address specific problems that need to be resolved.
C. Franklin D. Roosevelt's purpose is to firmly acknowledge the nation's current state.
D. Franklin D. Roosevelt's purpose is to accuse his predecessor in office of behaving foolishly.
E. Franklin D. Roosevelt's purpose is to explain the steps he will take to improve the nation.

I think the answer would be b and c. Did I miss one or am I incorrect on one?
