Grade 8 :: Main Idea by shelleygeorge
Buenos Aires, the capital city of Argentina, is known as the Paris of South America for its rich cultural treasures and its ability to attract a great many tourists. Lately, however, a bizarre problem has hit the city: it has become very difficult to make change. Indeed, this small economic crisis has come to be known as the great Buenos Aires coin shortage.

People commonly deal in transactions involving only small change, so the problem affects most people in the city. The city buses, the most common form of public transportation, take only change. A quick walk through any of the shopping districts of Buenos Aires will show the casual visitor many No Coins signs in storefront windows. Also, taxi rides are a smidgen more expensive as many drivers have begun rounding prices up to avoid dealing with change. The longest line in the city's central subway station is not for purchasing tickets or getting on the train, it's at the change window!

If you hope to visit this beautiful, up-and-coming city soon, dealing with these small inconveniences is worth it! The artistic treasures, the delicious food, the music, and the nightlife make visiting Buenos Aires truly special. Don't let the great Buenos Aires coin shortage stop you. You do need to plan to spend extra time locating coins for many of your simpler purchases and exchanges. If you are entering the city from other parts of Argentina, get a bag of coins, and take them with you! You may end up being more popular than you've ever been before!

Which sentence best describes the main idea of the news story?
  1. "You do need to plan to spend extra time locating coins for many of your simpler purchases and exchanges."
  2. "Lately, however, a bizarre problem has hit the city: it has become very difficult to make change."
  3. "A quick walk through any of the shopping districts of Buenos Aires will show the casual visitor many "No Coins" signs in storefront windows."
  4. "If you hope to visit this beautiful, up-and-coming city soon, don't let the great Buenos Aires coin shortage stop you."
