Answer A and C did not tell the full story.
So it is B

If we go by elimination technique,
Option A talks about industrial research which is not clearly visible in the passage.
Option C talks about mass communication which connects to the one line at the end.
Option B takes an overview of the passage: pioneer (first 2 lines) and prolific inventor (last 3 lines).
So, the answer is B.

B

first inventor = B

B

B is the best title for this passage.
A and C are too specific.

B

Since it talks about all great jobs of Edison and not just mass communication and just in the middle it mentions he is "often" credited for the first research lab, I think B is the correct answer.

B

B

B
because
the text is regarding the EDISONS acheivments

I think it's B because A and C are just as if supporters for the answer B

B

CORRECT ANSWER FROM SIMON:

B
