ACT Challenge Question 13: Reading Inferences

Magoosh ACT Challenge Question


A couple weeks ago, we posted a challenging question on an official ACT Reading comparison passage. If you missed it, check it out here. Today, we are bringing you another tricky question on that same reading passage (thankfully, it’s just on one of the passages this time :)).

You can find the Reading passage here on the ACT student website. Give it a read and then hurry back before we miss you too much!

Ready? Your ACT Challenge Question is below. Post your answer (and any feedback you have) in the comments. We’ll reveal the answer later this week!

It can reasonably be inferred from Passage B that the author believes science fiction writers like himself are:

  1. blind to the technological limitations of space travel.
  2. unable predict the future, no matter how much they want to.
  3. too reliant on obtaining spiritual understanding for the mysteries of the universe.
  4. more optimistic about future technological advances than other people.
