For number 2, why can C not be a right answer? Doesn't the author state in the first paragraph that "if [the expected future] 10 billion people consume" the resources, the ideal "standards of living equivalent to those of present-day industrial democracies" would last a decade or less"?
How does answer C differ from what the first paragraph is saying?
I see how answer D is right, i just don't see how C is wrong.
I can't add pictures to the comment to show my markings. I see how simplistic your tagging is. I can't understand though how do you remember and find the lines for answers with such simplistic markings and what is your thought process while deciding what is important or not. My page is filled with tagging but this takes away time (plus English is not my first or second language, so I want to improve in that respect a lot too. With LR I know that correct methodology and doing it all the time brings time but with RC is a struggle).
That's the point exactly—I do not remember! I also (as I've discussed and as you see here) do not attempt to re-write the passage in my markup.
The most important point of marking a passage is to create markers for you to quickly find and make use of information. It is counter to your cause to overmark a passage; you'd be better off making no markings at all (because that way you'd be more likely to pay attention to what you'd read, instead of paying attention to how you're marking what you've read).
So, concentrate on the basics. Make it your first priority to understand the main point. Use that understanding to color your answers to the other questions. Every answer must reflect the main point!
Once you're good at that, you can fill in the rest of your approach.
