I was informed that it's D, but It doesn't sound right. I would have chosen A. But let me check.
@Ryaan what do u think?
Mass transit—public systems that could carry large numbers of people
fairly inexpensively—reshaped the nation’s cities. Commuter rail lines had car-
ried people to areas in and around cities since the 1870s. However, they were pow-
ered by coal-driven steam engines, making them slow, unreliable, and dirty. Some
cities used trolleys pulled by horses, which were slower and left horse waste all
over the streets. Electricity, on the other hand, was quiet, clean, and efﬁcient.
Electric cars also ran on a reliable schedule and could carry many more people
than horse-drawn carts.
Electric cable cars were not practical in every city, however. Cables strung in
narrow streets could block ﬁre trucks, and trafﬁc congestion often prevented
streetcars from running on schedule. In 1897, Boston solved this problem by
running the cars underground in the nation’s ﬁrst subway system. New York
City followed in 1904. (here is the section in my text book about it)
