I found the complete question for this from another resource. I'm going to paste here for reference:1. You can very seldom pick up a livelihood by stealing until they arrive at the age of six years old; except where they are of towardly parts, although I confess they learn the rudiments much earlier. 2. These children are seldom the fruits of marriage, a circumstance not much regarded by our savages. 3. Men would become as the lover of their wives, during the time of their pregnancy, as they are now of their mares in foal, their cows in calf, or sow when they are ready to farrow.A. the general perception of the poor as thieves and the robbers B. the government of the lack of attention to the poor C. the perception of Irish households lack a respect for the institution of marriage D. the lack of institutions to carry out the celebration of marriages to the Irish poor E. the growing number of husbands abandoning their wives and children, F. the belief that the robbers and thieves are abundant in Ireland G. poor husbands' low opinion of their wivesNUMBER 1:This satire is talking about how poor people only win by stealing at an early age. One of the options, you can see two options (a and F), they are speaking of thieves, but only one of them is the true subject of the text. Given that the text is speaking of a stereotype of the poor as thieves, option a is the most appropriate for this item.ANSWER: A. the general perception of the poor as thieves and thieves NUMBER 2:This text is implying that the majority of children have parents who are not married (clue word: rare). The text also suggests that the "savages" don't care about that fact. Among the options, the two talk about the marriage (C and D). However, among these, the only option C accurately encapsulates the theme of the text.ANSWER: C. the perception of Irish households lack a respect for the institution of marriageNUMBER 3:The extract of this article is to talk about how the husbands are ONLY fond of their wives when they are pregnant. This means that the text is implying that husbands are not as fond of their wives when they are not pregnant. Options E and G, to talk about husbands and wives, but the choice of G captures the object of the satire more.ANSWER: G. poor husbands' low opinion of their wives
