Correct option is A)

The second paragraph of the passage talks about the how and why of the increasingly interest in public education that was displayed by the U.S government. When the following paragraph talks about the Morill Land Grant Act signed by President Lincoln, we realize that the entire paragraph supports the preceding one by providing an example. Option A best befits the context here. The other options are incorrect as the statements they make do not highlight the purpose of the third paragraph
