Maybe we should concentrate on this country, and try to relate the changes in libraries to external developments (CHANGES)

But the digitalised books that are available online for free are mostly out of copyright, aren't they? And copyright in this country lasts for 70 years after the author dies. So you won't find the latest best-seller or up-to-date information (UP TO DATE)

C.so it's probably best if we don't go into funding in any detail.
C.So you won't find the latest best-seller or up-to-date information.

B and C
B try to relate the changes in libraries to external developments
C you won't find the latest best-seller or up-to-date information

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

21. B
22. C

Correct answer keywords:

- the main topic = we should concentrate on
- changes in society = external developments, like the fact that more people can read

- They agree that = Trudie replies: "That's an important point"
- they are generally old = you won't find up-to-date information

Keywords to disprove the other answers:

- in different countries = NO = concentrate on this country
- how funding has changed = best if we don't go into funding

- no mention of how long it takes to read digital books, or how difficult they are

B
C

try to relate the changes in libraries to external developments, like the fact that more people can read than a century ago.
