I believe it's B bcuz yadayadayda you get the point
Based on the given question, the best answer for this would be:
This paragraph makes a point that contrasts with the point of the previous two paragraphs.
Since the paragraph explains the good side of why cookstoves were invented, the author had described the environmental struggles as well other than the disease.
B. to provide an example of what one country is doing to address the problems introduced in the article
Chef Jose Andres is talking about how cooking over an open fire is dangerous. He mentions his involvement in the United Nation's effort to get safer cooking methods to people around the world. By mentioning the work of the UN and India's prime minister, he is showing what one country is doing to address the problem. He is not specifically trying to garner external support or funding for India's program. He is just informing people what is being done.
B & D
obama is the best president
I would contend that the right answer is the C) To garner external support and funding to expand India's program beyond the current plan.
Explanation: Just to elaborate a little on the answer, it can be added that since the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves focuses on making available cookstoves and fuels that are safe for humans and enviromentally-friendly, when Chef José Andrés, who acts as a spokesperson for that Alliance, describes India's plan of providing clean cooking gas as an "important step," he is persuading his audience to collaborate with his organization, so not only gas, but actual cookstoves, become desirable to, and can be acquired by, the population of that country.
The author places this paragraph immediately after the two paragraphs about diseases because This paragraph makes a related but broader point about environmental harm rather than harm to individuals.
This excerpt talks about different kinds of harm. The concept is presented in the first paragraphs through the harm smoke causes on people and how this is one of the biggest causes of death among developing countries population, and as it hurts people and cause them death in many cases, it also kills the planet and the environment, the cooking procedure that is mention here destroys and damages as cancer not only for people but for the planet.
The correct answer to the question: What is the author´s purpose for writing this article, would be C: To encourage investement in developing safer cookstoves and fuels.
This article, written by Chef José Andrés, in 2016, shows not just the importance of cooking, but also its impact on social, and family, life, as well as the differences between the developed countries, who use clean and safe sources and tools for cooking, versus the less developed nations. Also, it portrays the efforts that have been made already by countries like India, and the importance that these measures have to improve the welfare of human health, especially on underdeveloped nations, and on the environment worldwide. By doing this, and showing that he himself, as a public figure, supports the efforts, and sees them as good, this chef is inviting more people to see the importance of them and support them through investement and further research and invention.
