Correct Answer: A

What once seemed a quixotic vision the "Subway to the Sea," connecting Union Station in downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean in Santa Monica no longer seems quite so IMPRACTICABLE.


ترجمه: چیزی که زمانی طرحی غیر عملی بنظر می رسید یعنی طرح " مترو به دریا" که ایستگاه یونیون در مرکز شهر لوسانجلس را به اقیانوس آرام در سانتا مونیکا وصل کند، دیگر آنقدرها هم غیرعملی به نظر نمی آید.

توضیح: در جمله تضاد مشهود است. قسمت اول جمله میگوید که طرح اتصال دو منطقه زمانی غیر عملی بنظر می رسید. در قسمت بعدی به زمان حال اشاره دارد و می گوید این طرح دیگر آنقدرها هم —---— (جای خالی ) نیست. تضاد در امکان پذیری یک طرح در گذشته و حال است و بنابراین درجالی خالی باید "غیرعملی" را بگذاریم.
