To replace "good bright candles", I chose the answer choice (B I think?) that started "Superb beacons...".  Was this how the "good measure of brightness" answer began?  For some reason I don't remember anything saying "Good measure of true brightness" although that's what I was looking for when I read the answer choices and do agree that would be right.  I suck at RC and can't remember anything from it...does anyone else remember this "SUPERB BEACONS" answer choice on that question?  I *KNOW* those 2 words were there, but don't remember the rest of it...

Back to the ubiquitous "draconian" v. "unpopular" debate: Are we sure that the question asked for the author's opinion on a government proposal to prohibit the Internet? Is there any chance that the question asked its readers in what light the populace would hold the imposition of the said prohibition according to the author?
If the former applies (and I think it does), then I believe that "draconian" is the correct answer choice. If the latter holds, I think that "unpopular" is the best choice.

The question stated fot the " authors attitude", i was about to select unpopular but then switched it to draconian. I didnt think that unpopular was the authors attitude...
