    Travelling east along the coast to Antalya

    Travelling east along the coast to Antalya, you may easily miss the great Lake of Köyceğiz lying behind the orange trees. Visitors at nearby Dalyan sail regularly back and forth between the famous small peninsula of sand where turtles build their nests and the ancient ruins of Caunus four miles away. They may even visit the mud baths at the tip of the lake.Yet they seldom try to swim in the lake itself, which is strangely hidden away from both the highway and the tourist crowd; this has helped the lake to evolve into a rare area of ecological importance.

    The passage is largely concerned with the ----.

    A) historical ruins around Köyceğiz
    B) great Lake of Köyceğiz
    C) sandy beaches around Köyceğiz
    D) turtles nesting in Dalyan
    E) tourist attractions on the way to Antalya


    B or E ?

    Yes, I can see why you would choose E.

    B or E ?
    To me it's obviously about the lake, B. The first sentence introduces the lake as the topic. The last sentence is not about tourist attractions at all, but it is about the lake.
    It's unclear from the passage whether the visitors at Dalyan sailing are actually on part of the lake or not. This would be the clincher (if they were). Even so, the sentence in blue is the only part not about the lake.
