Was konnte man sich lange Zeit nicht vorstellen? Warum? [2 marks]

Here's the passage that goes with the question:

"Öko-Mode und Luxus – eine Verbindung,  die man lange nicht für möglich hielt. Luxus war in den Augen von  Öko-Freunden etwas Unnötiges. Wer in  den achtziger Jahren mit grünen Ideen  sympathisierte, war mit dem Einfachen  zufrieden."

 

The first sentence of the text provides the answer to the 'what' question; the rest answers the 'why' question. Remember to answer in full German sentences when the question is in German. You could write:

"Man konnte sich die Verbinding von Öko-Mode und Luxus nicht vorstellen, weil man dachte, dass grüne Ideen nur mit einfachem Stil zusammenpasste."

You need to find a way to repeat the information in your own words. The marks are for comprehension and accuracy, so there's no need to try to use complicated constructions. Just make sure you include the relevant information, and write in intelligible German.

Remember as a rule of thumb: 2 marks = 2 points to make.
