Question:

Which of the following is an inference that readers can make from the final sentences of the third paragraph?

A Thomas Paine’s writing continues to have an influence on America (C).
Explaination

The final two sentences of the passage discuss Paine’s influence on modern social security, showing his continued influence. While Paine is imprisoned later in life, the passage implies that this has nothing to do with criminal acts (B), and there’s no evidence from the passage to suggest that he wrote his best work while in prison (D). (A) is a fact that is stated in the second paragraph, so it does not need to be inferred and it is also not a part of the paragraph in question.
