Reading Comprehension: Inference Questions

What does the passage imply about Singapore?

Great!

[[snippet]]

The author argues that countries in southeast Asia have similar child mortality rates to "developed countries" and then highlights Singapore to prove his or her point, implying that Singapore (despite its low child mortality rates) is not usually seen as part of the "developed" world.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

The passage tells us two important facts: some of the countries in Asia and South America have child mortality rates of the "developed world" and that Singapore had the lowest of all. From this we can infer that some countries in Asia and South America have low child mortality rates, but not all.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

The passage only provides us with information about the child mortality rates. We cannot make any conclusions about the overall conditions in any of those countries.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

The author uses Singapore as an example of a country that has better statistics than the countries of the "developed world". He or she could not make this example if Singapore was now part of the latter group.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

We only know about Singapore's child mortality rate in 2007. This does not mean anything about its rates in the past.

Singapore has always had a low child mortality rate.
Singapore's low child mortality rate makes it part of the "developed world".
Countries in the "developed world" had worse overall conditions than those in Singapore in 2007.
The countries in Asia and South America have child mortality rates that are close to those of Singapore.
Singapore is located in a region usually considered to hold undeveloped countries.
