B, D, F

1. B
2. C
3. F

1.B
2.C
3.F

B
C

My answer is:

1.B

I am sure that the answer is B,D,F.

A,D,F

B, D, F

There are my answers:
1. B
...the Thames Tunnel was not a financial success, with building costs far exceeding initial estimates
2. D
the tunnel did become a major tourist destination, attracting about two million people a year, each of whom paid a penny to pass under the river.
3. F
Its historic importance was recognised on 24th March 1995, when the structure was listed Grade II* in recognition of its architectural importance.

1. B
Quite Obvious!

2. C
Proposals = plans

3. F

For those who chose D, here's my thining. The text DOESN'T say anything about PROFIT.
2m tourist with 1 penny from each doesn't mean it is making profit; maybe the government has to spend a certain sum of money to maintain the tunnel, together with the income from the tourists.
PROFIT = INCOME > COSTs

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON

B
C
F

C is correct - there were plans / proposals, and it doens't matter whether they failed or not.

D is wrong because there is no mention of profit being made.

I think D is correct.".. attracting about two million people a year, each of whom paid a penny to pass under the river."

C
D
F

Dear Simon,

I chose B because of this sentence:
However, the tunnel did become a major tourist destination, attracting about two million people a year, each of whom paid a penny to pass under the river.

I think this mention of profit.

Plz make it clearer.

Thank you!

B, C, D
