It is an Ordinary Language but …

Britain`s influence on the world has been great. Take for example the influence of the English language around the world. The English language has become the lingua franca of the century. At present English is supposed to be better suited to play the role of a world language than other languages on earth. Unlike, for example, German, Russian, or Chinese, the simple structure and grammar of English, along with its tendency to use shorter, less abstract words and more-concise sentences, are all advantageous for the composers of song lyrics, ad slogans, cartoon captions, newspaper headlines, and movie and TV dialogue. English has become the standard language of international communication and mass culture.

Choose the best answer according to the text.

The author’s purpose in this passage is to explain …

a) why Britain’s influence on the world has been great;
b) why English is well-suited to become the standard language of international communication and mass culture;
c) that mass culture has a tendency to use shorter, less abstract words and more-concise sentences.
