The definition of future shocked on the sentence: ...the accelerated rate of technological and social change leaving people disconnected and suffering from "shattering stress and disorientation" - future shocked

The best title from the passage above is D (A changing society)

Option A (X), because it do not describe a shocking vision of the future

Option B (X), because it just define what is future shock in which it state in first paragraph, while the second paragraph tends to explain about society change

Option C (X), because it do not tell about the career

Option D (V), because this summarize all paragraph

B or D

I am confused, waiting for Simon's well-explained answer.

In my eyes the right answer is B.

Answer is : D

First paragraph defines what ‘Future shock’ is, - states the psychological state of individual and society.
Second paragraph explains more about disconnected society.

to me the answer is B

B

I think the answer should be B because they define term "future shock" in the first paragraph and then list some examples(social problems and symptoms) to reveal the related consequence.

The passage of D is about cases and details of "Future Shock" that I think.

D

CORRECT ANSWER FROM SIMON:

B is correct.

A is wrong because the passage is about people's reaction to the future, not a particular vision of the future.

C is wrong because there is nothing about his whole career.

D is too general - the passage is about a specific reaction to change. We really need something about Toffler or future shock in the title.

B is the best title because both paragraphs talk about future shock: the first paragraph contains a definition, and the second paragraph explains how future shock can occur.

B is the right choice
A is wrong because it's happening not only in the future.

my answer is D
