Here is a paragraph

In this set of materials, both the reading passage and the lecture deal with the effect of the Industrial Revolution in British society. Regarding this topic, the lecture argues that the Industrial Revolution had several negative impacts on British society. This contradicts the writer’s claim that the Industrial Revolution improved people’s quality of life.
