Question 6 - Reading: Level D Practice Test for the TABE Test

Which of these best describes the overall tone of the paragraph provided?

“Fashion design is the art dedicated to the creation of wearing apparel. Centuries ago, for example, Kings and Queens had their personal clothes sewers to make them the best looking dresses with the finest products. These sewers could be considered to be the first fashion designers. Modern fashion design is roughly divided into two categories, Haute-Couture and Ready-to-Wear. This can be thought of as analogous to ‘theory’ and ‘practice.’ A designer’s Haute-Couture collection is meant exclusively for the catwalk and perhaps photographs. These are more exotic or abstract clothes than people would really wear. Ready-to-wear is the kind that is actually sold to people. Designers typically produce both each season.”
