Q26 - Q30:- Read the passage and answer the questions given below:

For years now, critics of United States cities have pictured city centers as empty places, avoid of life. Fortunately, a recent trend in urban development is making some cities lively. One example of this trend is Baltimores Harbor place, a stunning waterfront complex of one hundred shops set in glass pavilions. Not long ago, Baltimores dockland 5 area, like clock areas in other older cities, was a collection of abandoned warehouses. Now the area is expected to add thirty million dollars to Baltimores annual tax base and to draw home buyers back to the city and away from the nearby Washington, DC area. Baltimore has long been a pioneer in urban renewal, not only building from scratch, as at Harbor place, but preserving and restoring buildings throughout the town center. Although 10 few cities show this much care for their old residential areas, the officials of many cities are starting to believe that central districts ought to be efficiently attractive to draw permanent residents to them. Several other cities built around water are also exploiting their easily accessible waterfront areas. San Francisco, in its Ghirardelli Square project, converted an old factory at the edge of the bay into a labyrinth of boutiques.  St. Louis 15 Savannah, Louisville, and Portland all have riverside malls in progress, while Bostons Quincy Market also on the waterfront , is expected to bring in 1.5 million dollars in city taxes annually.This trend reflects an important change in social attitudes in the United States, brought on by new economic factors. In the 1960s, the availability of low-cost housing beyond 20 city limits caused many cities in the east and Midwest to lose residents, thus leaving city centers relatively empty of life. In the southwest a different phenomenon , the relentless impetus of cities like TU Houston, and Phoenix to extend their orders across the desert, has had much the same effect: centers full of skyscrapers and streets that are empty after five o clock ,for years it seemed that the ideal home was tranquil suburban 25 residence. But recently, the rise in gas prices has made long automobile journeys to work less tolerable. Trips of fifty miles are not uncommon for the suburban commuter. In addition, suburban property taxes have risen sharply as utility lines are stretched ever farther from central sources. 30 The rise in house prices has increased the differential between city and suburban property; now it is generally cheaper to buy an old urban house than a newer suburban one. Young working people, usually without children, are the most likely purchasers of urban homes. Following these people are huge projects including apartments, offices, and shops, all embracing the increasingly attractive belief that people should live, work, and shop within 35 as little traveling distance as possible.

Q26. According to the passage, the officials of Baltimore expect the Harbor place complex to help solve which of the following problems?
I. The lack of creation facilities in Baltimore.
II. Draw home buyers back to the city.
III. The high rate of unemployment among employees of Baltimores shipping industries.

a) I only
b) II only
c) I and III only
d) I, II and III

ANS: b
