Question:

The passage most strongly emphasizes which aspect of the job of construction management?

A A. The variety of its responsibilities
Explaination

Choice A is the best answer. The main focus of the passage is on the variety of the responsibilities of a construction manager, who must “learn a construction project from the planning stage . . . to the budgeting stage . . . to the production stage” and must “obtain work permits, hire contractors, troubleshoot emergencies, schedule walkthroughs and keep clients informed on work timetables and progress.” Choices B and D are incorrect because there is no information in the passage about the educational background required of a construction manager or about the amount of stress the construction manager career inflicts. Choice C is incorrect because there is no information in the passage about the kind of person for whom a construction manager career would be suitable beyond the broad claim that it is “ideal for someone who has a general interest in building a design.”
