The question below contains a paragraph followed by alternative summaries. Choose the option that best captures the essence of the paragraph.

Anyone on first opening Kant’s books finds them overwhelmingly difficult and impenetrably obscure. The cause for this difficulty can be traced in part to the works that Kant took as his models for philosophical writing. He was the first great modern philosopher to spend all of his time and efforts as a university professor of the subject. Regulations required that in all lecturing a certain set of books be used, with the result that all of Kant's teaching in philosophy had been based on such handbooks as those of Wolff and Baumgarten, which abounded in technical jargon, artificial and schematic divisions, and great claims to completeness. Following their example, Kant accordingly, provided and by no means immediately illuminating scaffolding for all his books.
OPTIONS
 
 1)The influence of his predecessors on Kant made him write his books in a style that readers find it almost impossible to understand.
 2)Kant, being an academic all his life, modelled his books on the textbooks he had learnt, and produced books that were abstruse and impenetrable.
 3)Kant’s style of writing was significantly influenced by the technical and abstruse styles adopted by the philosophical handbooks that he dealt with as an academic.
 4)Kant’s books are difficult and impenetrably obscure to anyone because Kant having been an academician all his life modelled them on the handbooks of philosophy he had been exposed to.
 5)Kant’s books are extremely difficult for anyone to understand because as a professor of philosophy all his life, he modelled them on the technical and artificial styles of his predecessors.
