Passage 80

Shoreland County recently purchased an area of wilderness land in the county to prevent it from being developed. In doing so, the county has forfeited all future property taxes on this land. Property taxes are assessed on market value, and if developed, the land would have contributed significantly to the county’s overall annual tax revenue. Because of the purchase, therefore, overall annual tax revenue will be lower than it would have been if development had occurred.

1.Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

A. The money the county would have had to expend for services to residences or industry developed on the wilderness land would have exceeded the tax revenue from the developed land.

B. The market value of undeveloped properties in Shoreland County will not increase significantly in the foreseeable future.

C. The property taxes received by Shoreland County from the previous owners of the wilderness area were insignificant relative to the county’s overall annual tax revenue.

D. Land near the area bought by the county will not increase significantly in market value as a result of being near wilderness that is protected from development.

E. Shoreland County will not in the foreseeable future prevent the development of any other land in the county.

Passage 160

The Great Sphinx is a huge statue in Egypt that has a lion’s body with a man’s head. The face of the Sphinx has long been claimed to be that of pharaoh Khafre, who lived around 2600 B.C., but it cannot be: erosion patterns recently discovered on the lion’s legs can only have been caused by heavy rains, and the Sahara has not had heavy rains in over 10,000 years.

passage 160

1.Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument?

A. The face of the Sphinx bears a resemblance to the faces on certain stylized statues dating from both before and after the reign of Khafre.

B. Other erosion patterns that appear on the body of the Sphinx are of a sort that could be caused by wind and sand alone

C. Other than the Sphinx, there are no surviving sculptures that have been claimed to portray the face of Khafre.

D. In the last 10,000 years the climate of Egypt has been so dry that even rains that are not heavy have been extremely infrequent.

E. The face of the Sphinx is small relative to the rest of the head, indicating that the face may have been recarved long after the Sphinx was built.

Passage 74

The damage that trucks do to highways escalates dramatically with the weight borne per axle. New regulations increase the maximum permitted vehicle weight; these regulations will therefore allow onto the highway trucks capable of doing even more damage than those currently permitted.

A. fails to establish that the level of damage done by trucks is a serious problem

B. omits evidence about one of the two relevant factors

C. ignores the possibility that careful driving can lessen damage to highways

D. presumes that trucks are the only vehicles capable of causing substantial damage to highways

E. presumes that something is bound to happen just because it is allowed to happen

Passage 67

In 1755 British writer Samuel Johnson published an acerbic letter to Lord Chesterfield rebuking his patron for neglect and declining further support. Johnson’s rejection of his patron’s belated assistance has often been identified as a key moment in the history of publishing, marking the end of the culture of patronage. However, patronage had been in decline for 50 years, yet would survive, in attenuated form, for another 50.Indeed, Johnson was in 1762 awarded a pension by the Crown—a subtle form of sponsorship, tantamount to state patronage. The importance of Johnson’s letter is not so much historical as emotional; it would become a touchstone for all who repudiated patrons and for all who embraced the laws of the marketplace.

1.The author of the passage mentions Johnson’s 1762 pension award in order to

A. reveal that Johnson remained consistent in his rebuke of Lord Chesterfield well after 1755

B. provide evidence for a general trend in the latter half of the eighteenth century of private patronage’s being replaced by state sponsorship

C. situate the debate over the end of patronage within the wider realm of eighteenth-century economic history

D. suggest that Johnson’s letter to Chesterfield was noticed by the Crown only years after it was published

E. emphasize that patronage still helped support Johnson’s writing after his letter to Chesterfield

2.Which of the following best describes the function of the highlighted phrase in the context of the passage as a whole?

(patronage had been in decline for 50 years, yet would survive, in attenuated form, for another 50)

A. It points out the most obvious implications of Johnson’s letter to his patron.

B. It suggests a motivation for Johnson’s rejection of Chesterfield’ s patronage.

C. It provides information that qualifies the assertion that Johnson’s letter sharply defined of the end of a publishing era.

D. It provides a possible defense for Chesterfield’s alleged neglect of Johnson.

E. It refutes the notion the patrons are found primarily among the nobility.

Passage 54

The discovery of subsurface life on Earth, surviving independently from surface life, refuted the belief that biological processes require not only liquid water but sunlight as well, thus greatly enhancing the possibility of life beyond Earth. Take Jupiter’s moon Europa. Space probes show a body covered with a thick layer of ice. As Europa orbits its planet, however, it flexes due to the gravitational tug-of-war between it,its sister moons, and Jupiter. Through friction, this flexing produces heat in the moon’s interior capable of melting ice. Indeed, observations suggest liquid water exists beneath Europa’s icy crust. Photosynthetic life is impossible there because sunlight is completely absent, but life such as the microbes that flourish deep within earth may still be possible.

Consider each of the choices separately and select all that apply

1.Life on Europa in the form suggested in the passage would be dependent on

A. the protection Europa’s icy crust gives against the harmful components of sunlight

B. the existence of water on Europa

C. the motion of Europa around Jupiter

2.The highlighted sentence “take Jupiter’s moon Europa” serves to introduce

A. an instance that allows a hypothesis to be tested

B. speculation grounded in empirical discovery

C. a deduction from a newly advanced hypothesis

D. a large-scale effect of an apparently insignificant contingency

E. the derivation of a contradiction to refute a claim
