Reading Comprehension: Main Idea Questions

The author is chiefly concerned with which of the following?

That's right!

[[snippet]]

The first two paragraphs are concerned with the problems tomb raiding causes, and the third paragraph shows tomb raiding may be a historical phenomenon to be studied in its own right.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

This statement is too general. The passage concerns a specific threat to archaeological evidence in tombs. It does not concern several threats to archaeological evidence in general.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

The passage indeed deals with tomb raiding as a threat to archaeological evidence. However, the author does not suggest how to deal with tomb raiding nor does the author maintain that the subject should be studied for that purpose

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

Although the second paragraph is concerned with this topic, it is not the main idea of the entire passage. This statement is too narrow.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

This statement is too narrow as it focuses on one piece of information which appears in the last paragraph. The fact that the final idea presented in the paragraph concerns grave robbing in ancient times does not imply the entire passage is concerned with the same topic.
