Reading Comprehension Passage Use the information in the following passage to answer the next two questions. At 9:47 p.m., two patrol units were dispatched to a suburban home on the evening of June 12. The dispatcher stated that the owner had reported a robbery, which took place earlier that evening when he and his wife were not at home. The owner also stated that the suspects were in the home at the time of their arrival, but that they fled the scene in a dark blue sedan. Upon arrival at the home, Officers Baker and Reigner began to question Mr. Corneal, the owner of the home. In the meantime, Officers Lucas and Gentry conducted a preliminary investigation of the home to determine the activities of the suspects and the extent of damage. The questioning revealed that Mr. Corneal collected exotic guns and had accumulated an extensive collection. In addition, Mrs. Corneal had several sets of antique jewelry. When questioned as to individuals who knew about the collections, Mr. Corneal stated that only friends of the family and members of the rifle club were aware of them. He was further questioned to determine whether any unusual events had occurred recently that might be related to this incident. Mr. Corneal stated that they had extensive remodeling done to the interior of the home during the past month and a half by several different companies. Officer Reigner asked if they had reason to suspect any of the workers. Mr. Corneal stated that several of the workers had shown an interest in seeing and discussing his collection of guns, but that it would be very difficult to determine which individuals, if any, may have been involved. Officer Reigner requested the names of the companies and the services they performed. After a few minutes, Officers Lucas and Gentry returned from their search of the home. Since the only other areas that were disturbed were ones that typically contain money (e.g., dresser top and dresser drawers), they determined that the robbers concentrated their efforts on the two gun collections. They concluded that the robbers must have been aware of the gun collections before entering the home. 9. According to the above passage, when the Corneals arrived home on the evening of June 12, they discovered that their home had been:

a. b. c. d.

ransacked, but nothing was stolen. entered, and the television, stereo, and computer were stolen. entered, and the television, stereo, and computer were stolen. robbed, and five antique guns and several pieces of exotic jewelry were the items that were taken.

Choice B: "I saw a neighbor on their porch" suggests that the officer knew that it was a neighbor on the porch before Mrs. Orvis told him who she was. In the notes and in choice A, the woman tells him both her name and that she is a neighbor. This choice is incorrect. Choice C: "I saw pulling into the driveway a woman on their porch" does not make sense, the woman could not be doing both. For C to be correctly written, there should be a period after Wynter, and the next sentence should begin: "Pulling into the driveway, I saw…" This choice is incorrect. Choice D: This choice does not say that 26 Arbor Avenue is the Wynters’ residence. It could be the address that the call came from. Also, another piece of information is missing; the officer does not say that he pulled into the driveway. In police writing every detail is important. This choice is incorrect.

You may feel that Choice a is correct because you can t figure out why the Chinese aren’t overweight if they eat so many more calories than they need. the average American is lucky if his/her diet is only 30 percent fat. it would have to say something like would keep. One sentence says that the average Chinese diet is about 15 percent fat. but tricky. We didn’t think up tricky little things like this to be mean. Nowhere does it say that the average American diet consists of 30 percent fat. Passage "Increasingly.

It’s coffee and a bagel in the morning. And one thing they have . Then. Ad campaigns need to be more prevents successful marketing varied and creative to keep the strategies. in the middle of the passage.

And she goes on to question whether there are. In effect. Asians. ever-changing variety. the author is saying that there is still a mass market a mass of consumers world-wide. It speaks of the multitude of products in the urban centers of each nation and the fact that people everywhere are becoming more alike in their tastes and preferences. And. rather than strictly following the old guidelines (health food types. The passage mentions bagels and sushi. Choice C is incorrect because there is really nothing in the passage to support it. these consumers have formed themselves into a new kind of mass market which is broad-based but varied and changeable. Choice c is incorrect because it is neither stated directly nor hinted at in the passage. and so on). we must conclude that the author would feel that successful marketing strategies are possible. no theories. no organization. The author also plays up the similarities within the new marketplace and definitely seems to be leading the reader toward finding ways to work with the new trends. MiddleAmericans. no consistencies.

Therefore. but its understanding which gives the world its true and proper form. The author never says how the ad campaigns should be different. merely a dizzying array of fantastic and bewildering images. While ad campaigns probably should be creative and varied to attract consumers. the use of the word really and the fact that this statement is put into question form leads us to believe that she doesn’t think so. Understanding applies its own laws on the sense experiences and transforms them into a coherent and consistent body of knowledge. Central-Europeans. There is no order. Kant revolutionized Western philosophy by proving that true experience consists of the judgments we impose upon the data of the senses. Thus. The author does say. in fact. in fact. she says: Have the markets really been transformed into a myriad of unrelated niches. . Choice d is incorrect. but she never says that the advertising campaigns have to be varied. the passage says nothing about this. we could almost say that it is contradicted by the passage. The products are varied. Passage: According to Hume. she just says that the old ways wont work any more. The senses yield information about the world. nothing to make sense out of this multiplicity. NOTES: REF: We could also use the process of elimination to answer this question because none of the other answers works very well. but if anything it indicates that people are becoming less ethnic. but she lets us know that she doesn’t really believe this by using the phrase or so it would seem. it is saying that many people are not staying in their ethnic groups any more. When the entire passage is taken into consideration. creating a need for a multitude of ad campaigns? As we stated earlier. also.

This style of question is called a permutation item question. ANSWER: B Solution: This may have been an intimidating question for a number of reasons: 1) it concerns philosophy. complicated sentences and use unfamiliar words because its an easy way to create difficult questions. For Kant. The mind intuits them. and 3) it has a strange form. You dont have to have a background in a certain area to answer basic reading comprehension questions. 7. Some of the following statements are true according to the passage. and said that they are intrinsic to the mind. First of all.Reading Comprehension Test Page 11 of 18 Kant called these laws categories. Statements I. Some of the following statements are true according to the passage. categories are basic to the mind. Statements I and III are true. Some makers of questions like to create long. man can only experience his world within a framework of time and space. some are false. True experience comes directly from the data of the senses. dont be intimidated by the subject matter. 2) it uses a number of words that you may not be familiar with. a. According to Kant. II. you may often come across words youre not that familiar with when dealing with exam questions. All the information you need should be right there in the passage. Statements I and IV are true. and IV are true. theres the strange form of the question. IV. they are basic to the mind. after . Second. or by looking for clues in other sentences or in the other choices given. c. b. II. Usually you can get around this by translating the sentences into your own words. d. Then. I. The easiest way to deal with a question of this type is to look at each statement separately to determine if it is true or false. Kant revolutionized Eastern philosophy. Finally. Nothing can be known outside of this framework. space and time are forms of intuition and man can only experience his world within a spacio-temporal frame. some are false. III. According to Kant. Statements II and IV are true. according to Kant.

(As we said earlier. Statement II is false. From the first of these two sentences. its safe to say that categories are basic to the mind. space and time are forms of intuition and man can only experience his world within a spacio-temporal frame. Statement I has to be true. but its understanding which gives the world its true and proper form. The next sentence expands on this. As you will see in the next paragraph. make a note on your scrap paper. Another way that you can figure out that Statement I is true is by putting a question mark next to it. now that you know Statements I and IV are true. As you can see there are often many ways to arrive at the correct answer. Therefore. Statement I is included as part of the answer in all the choices except Choice c. you probably figured out that spacio-temporal meant time and space even if you didnt know this to begin with. you can eliminate any choice that contains one of them. for example. As it turns out. but understanding gives the true form. If youre allowed to write in your exam booklet (or if you have a good eraser). make a note of it somewhere. you can pick Choice b and feel secure. Statement II is false because Kant revolutionized Western not Eastern philosophy. Now. is true. but reading along you can see that the author seems to be going on about the same thing in Sentence 7 that he started in Sentence 6. you are left with the only possible right answer Choice b. You may not have known what intrinsic meant. and then seeing how it fits into the scheme of things. Senses give information. Choice C says that Statement II is true. Nothing can be known outside of this framework. Otherwise. (They are in the same sentence. Statement IV is true according to the last two sentences which talk about space and time: For Kant. When youve taken care of all of them in this way. saying that the mind intuits them.) So. and youre not too sure about I or IV. . this is one of those passages that you might have wanted to translate into your own words to make sense of it. You could have said something like: True experience is the judgments we put on the info that comes from our senses. you need to read carefully and pay attention to every word. examining each of the other statements. By knowing that II and III are false. but you know that Statements II and III are false. Therefore. The passage says Kant called these laws categories and said they were intrinsic to the mind. The senses yield information about the world. The senses give information. but not the true form. Statement I is true because it is stated almost word for word in the sixth and seventh sentences. By reorganizing the sentences in this way. you can guess that Statement I is true. But lets say you are doing this on your own. Since Choice a contains Statement III and Choices c and d contain Statement II. you could have simplified it even more: True experience = judgments. it doesnt come directly from the senses. and spacio closely resembles space. make a T or write true next to the statement. Therefore. they are basic to the mind.) Statement III is false because Kant thought that true experience consists of the judgments we impose upon the data of the senses. it will be very easy to answer the question.Reading Comprehension Test Page 12 of 18 youve figured out that Statement I. Then. Then do the same for all the other statements. it becomes clear that true experience only comes from the judgments we make.

NOTES: REF:

question is reading ~ choice a is incorrect because the second sentence in the passage says that the amateur is allowed to produce near studio-quality productions. The productions are close to being as good as the real thing, but theyre not quite good enough. Choice b is incorrect because, according to the passage, video titling programs mix words with pictures, animate images, and move from screen to screen. Its character generators which create electronic text. Choice d is incorrect because a camcorder (a device which contains the capability of both a camera and a VCR), not a camera, is used for editing and overdubbing. Choice c is correct and is found in the last sentence of the passage.

Passage:

Nearly twenty years ago, the United Farm Workers boycott of grapes was successful
in eliminating deadly poisons like DDT, DDE, and Dieldrin from fields worked by union workers. Yet today more than fifty other chemical products used on table grapes have been identified. The most lethal poisons are listed below. Each has injured or killed farm workers, and each might be present on the grapes you buy. There is methyl bromide, responsible for more occupationally-related deaths than any other pesticide and for permanent brain damage or blindness. Parathion and Phosdrin also can kill, sometimes very quickly. Since they are sprayed from the air, they also negatively affect people in the surrounding areas. (Ninety percent of all aerially sprayed pesticides miss their targets.) Dinoseb has a cumulative effect, causing illness and blindness. Finally, there is Captan which can cause cancer, birth defects, and changes in cell structure. This compound is the one most frequently found on storebought grapes.

Federal and state agencies have recommended the ban of each of these

substances yet they continue to be used today (1988). Pesticide poisoning has doubled

in the past ten years: more than 300,000 farm workers are made ill every year through pesticide exposure, and female farm workers are seven times more likely to suffer miscarriages than the average American woman. Of course, farm workers are not the only ones affected by the massive amounts of pesticides dumped on the nations food supply. A survey done in San Francisco showed that 44 percent of fruits and vegetables contained measurable amounts of pesticide residues and 42 percent of those contained more than one chemical. Pesticides are thought to be responsible for groundwater contamination in 23 states groundwater provides 50 percent of our drinking water supply.

9. All of the following are true according to the above passage, except;

a. methyl bromide is responsible for more occupationally-related fatalities than any

c. more than forty chemical products used on table grapes have been identified.

other pesticide. b. United Farm Workers have called d. Captan can cause cancer, birth for another nation-wide boycott of defects, and changes in cells. table grapes.

ANSWER: B Solution: This question illustrates the danger of using common sense and/or outside knowledge when neither are called for. You may know that the United Farm Workers called for another grape boycott, which was still going on when this booklet was written (1988), but the passage never says this. You may have inferred that this is the direction in which the passage is going, but, again, the passage never says it. Be very careful never to read things into passages on exam questions. Just stick to the facts as they are given unless you are forced to infer something, which occasionally you will have to do. Choice a is found in the fifth sentence of the passage. Choice c is covered by the second sentence. The sentence

Passage:

says more than 50, but since more than 50 is also more than 40, there is no contradiction between Choice c and the passage. Choice d is found in the tenth sentence. Since changes in cell structure would be considered the same as changes in cells, there is no contradiction between the passage and the answer choice.

In spite of the fact that very few organizations keep accurate records of employee exit interviews, we can make some generalizations about why women leave and how long they stay. A small proportion of women leave their jobs after working less than a year. Usually, they leave because they dislike the work, their co-workers or supervisors, or because there has been a change in their personal lives. Another small percentage leave after ten to fifteen years, and they tend to leave for personal reasons or because it would significantly advance their careers. Women who leave after working between three and five years are likely to do so because they feel blocked in their careers. Many trainee jobs are merely interesting, moderate paying jobs without much hope for advancement.

Young women find the jobs attractive when they are first starting out, but become disappointed over time because they are looking for more and are qualified for more. Often women leave jobs that they like and are good at because they watch others advance more rapidly simply because they are men.

10. Which of the following statements is best supported by the passage?

a. Most young women find their first c. Organizations should keep jobs attractive if they lead to more accurate exit interviews. advanced

positions. b. Women become frustrated when they see men advancing rapidly.

d. Many trainee positions do not lead very far on the career ladder.

ANSWER: D Solution: Choice a is incorrect because it jumps to a conclusion. We dont know if most young women are looking to get ahead. It seems that this is the direction that the passage is taking, but the passage gives us nothing solid upon which to base

NOTES: REF:
Passage:

this conclusion. Choice b also jumps to a conclusion. The passage says that often women leave jobs... because they watch others advance more rapidly simply because they are men. This means that it is not the rapid advancement of men that bothers the women, but the fact that the men are advancing more rapidly simply because they are men, and not because they are more qualified. The wording of Choice b, on the other hand, is such that it seems the women dont want the men to advance rapidly period. Its subtle, but there is a difference. Choice c is incorrect because it is too strong. While it may seem that the author would like more accurate exit interviews so that he could determine why women leave their jobs, he never says this. The word should is what makes this choice unacceptable. Choice d is supported by the passage which states that many trainee jobs are merely interesting, moderate-paying jobs without much hope for advancement.

Most of us assume that we and other human beings are basically rational. Being rational means that once we figure out what we want to happen, we develop a theory or plan to bring it about, act in such a way as to foster the plan, seek to correct any action which interferes with our desired result, and feel good or badly depending on our degree of success. This concept of rationality assumes that people plan their actions and are therefore personally responsible for them. It also assumes that people would not act against their intentions. In addition, it assumes that people do their utmost to control their own ability to put their actions and desires in motion, rather than being pawns in someone else’s game or victims of fate.

Given these assumptions, it’s understandable that, when confronted with their own irrationality, most people become rather upset. They become frightened when they realize that their actions are countering their intentions and that they have been unaware of this fact. If they can’t trust themselves, whom can they trust? In this rational society, where concrete facts and the scientific method are worshipped, the only logical conclusion anyone can come to is that there is something wrong with herself. (Such thinking might run something like this: “If I want one thing, but do something that works against that outcome, there must be something wrong with my thinking, or my ability to plan and assess my actions.”) Therefore, people become confused, bewildered, ashamed, frustrated, guilty, and angry when they realize that they were unable to plan and put into effect what they intended to, that they were predisposed to sabotage their plans, and that others were aware of what they were doing all along. It would be far better for most of us if we realized that we very often do things for reasons that make no sense to our intellect. If we did, we would spend far less time defending our actions, and we would be able to spend more time figuring out how to get where we want to go and what’s really stopping us.

11. Which of the following is best supported by the passage?

Page 18 of 18

a. Most of the time people act in ways c. that are consistent with their intentions. b. It is sometimes easier for someone d. else to see that we are working against ourselves than it is for us to see it.

If a person wants one thing but does another, there is something wrong with him or her. People do their utmost to control their own ability to put their desires in motion.

ANSWER: B Solution: The answer can be found in the third to the last sentence. This sentence says that people became upset when they realized that they were predisposed to sabotaging their own plans, and that others were aware of what they were doing all along. Choice a is incorrect because the passage doesnt indicate how often people act in ways that are consistent with what they want to achieve. Choice c is incorrect because the passage doesnt say this. While it does say that in this rational society. the only logical conclusion anyone can come to is that there is something wrong with him/herself, this doesnt mean that there actually Ls anything

NOTES: REF:

wrong with him or her. The author is merely giving the conclusion that would be reached by a person who believes that we should do things for rational reasons. It is the authors stated opinion, however, that we dont always do things for rational reasons, and we should just accept this. Choice d is incorrect because it isnt very well supported by the passage. The author says that it assumes that people do their utmost to control their own ability to put their actions and desires in motion. . . . The idea of rationality assumes that people will do their utmost, but the passage does not tell us if people do their utmost or not. Perhaps people sabotage themselves more than they work toward their goals. Perhaps people spend more time blaming others and outside circumstances. Perhaps people would rather have others take responsibility for them than be independent. Choice d is incorrect because it makes too great an assumption.

If blue were to have three3 flags. No. and at least. one blue flag. then green would only have one. so the green flags must occupy the three spaces on the left of the W or the three spaces on the right of the W. and this too violates the original condition regarding green.
