What is the main purpose of the passage?
A. To present the change of people’s attitudes to the tomato
B. To show the process of freeing the tomato from religious influence
It could be said that both A and B are correct. The passage shows (A) how people's attitudes are changed by (B) the freeing of the tomato from its religious associations.
My guess is that B is the required answer, because the religious factor is presented as the main element in the rejection of the tomato.
