The answer is A. There is no mistake. Get rid of the phrase between the two commas when you read the sentence and it is much easier. When you do the grammar sections of the ACT and SAT, minimize the sentences by getting rid of extra words when you can. Using just the key elements to the sentence makes them much clearer.
Let’s see what the ACT folks have for us today.

The answer is H. Using my Insertable strategy (Video #4) makes this question a snap. If you insert any of the other answers into the passage they will either add to or disagree with what you read. The only one that fits is “a private person.” It repeats what you are told in lines 74 and 75.
Enjoy you hump day.
