After leaving Ellis Island, the newcomers went on to live in many different places.
Russell Freedman in his book "Immigrant Kids" tells of how young newcomers to America had to undergo various trials and hardships to get to their destinations. It gives a rare insight into the lives of these immigrant kids and their ordeals during their journeys.

The correct option is the first option: the similarities in the wording.
When you want to compare passages, you have to focus on similarities between them.
The other options are not correct because the origins of the authors and the dates the texts were written are not relevant when comparing PASSAGES. Moreover, the last option is not correct because it highlights the differences the passages have and the instruction states you should COMPARE the passages. This means doing the exact opposite of spotting differences.
To compare two passages, the reader must compare the similarities between the words, as shown in the first answer option.
