(Choose all that apply.)
The reasons stated are:
- people do not even know if what has happened to them is a crime;
- they do not know whom to report the issue to;
- they are not sure if the offenders will be caught;
- there is much for government to do—allot more funds.
With this understanding, let’s check each option provided.
Option A: The passage does not state that people lack evidence to report the issue. So this is not the right answer.
Options B: This option states that people lack awareness about white collar crimes. This is true of the passage and is a correct answer.
Option C: This states that people are unclear about how to report a crime. This is also described as a reason in the passage. So this is also correct.
Since not many white-collar crimes are reported, the government has assumed that people are less worried about white-collar crimes than street crimes.
With this understanding, read each option.
Option A: We can rule this option out because it is not mentioned in the passage at all.
Option B: Since the government has allocated funds to control street crimes, yes, it is definitely important, but not for the reason mentioned i.e. more people are directly affected by this. We can rule this option since it is only partially true.
Option C: This is stated exactly so in the passage. People report less of white-collar crimes (due to lack of awareness of the crime itself or reporting procedures as mentioned in the passage); so the government assumes that they are not so concerned about white-collar crimes. This is the correct answer.
Option D: While the passage does mention allocation of more funds to control ‘street crime’, nowhere does it state that there aren’t enough facilities for controlling white collar crimes. Hence, choosing this option is incorrect.
Option E: Same as option D.
