I simply don't understand the explanation for question 34, exam 2, passage 2. Can someone elaborate on the answer for me? I just don't understand why choice III is not also an answer.

Okay, in the passage, the author explains the different camera angles that can be used for certain emphasize. Question #34 suggests a scene where you have a mother scolding her small daughter (mother = figure of authority since she's scolding her kid, thus looking down at her), the daughter (daughter = inferior figure as she is being scolded, thus looking up at the mother), and the father who is secretly listening (father = secretive figure, imagine someone who's listening over some else's shoulder, thus "over the shoulder). Considering that order specifically, you would have a 'low-angle' [mother looking down], a 'high-angle' [daugher looking up], and 'over the shoulder' [father secretly listening].

I hope that helps! Good luck on your MCAT!

EDIT: Rereading your post, you state you don't understand #34 on Test 2 in the EK Verbal Reasoning... I hope you mean the EK's 101 Verbal passages. If not, please excuse my completely unrelated explanation...
