Reading Comprehension: One Paragraph Reading Passages

Which of the following best summarizes the contents of the passage?

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

This answer choice is too narrow. Although the first sentence briefly mentions the DNA research conducted in 2004, our Initial Reading shows us that the passage is really about something else.

Remember, don't stop reading at the end of the first sentence, even if that sentence happens to be long.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

While the conservation program established in Queen Elizabeth II Park is discussed in length in the second half of the passage, the passage opens with a description of the endangered state of the Blue Iguana. Therefore, this answer choice is too narrow.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

The first sentence states that the Grand Cayman Iguana is a different species from the Cuban Iguana. The passage revolves around the Grand Cayman Iguana, not the Cuban Iguana.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

Although the passage discusses an endangered population of iguanas, it does not focus on environmental influences on the iguana population. This issue is only mentioned briefly at the end of the passage.

Moreover, the subject of the passage is not the Cuban Iguana but the Grand Cayman Iguana. 

Well done!
