I know obsessing afterwards is pointless, but I can't help it. Does anyone know what the right answers were to the following questions:
- READING COMP, "Chinese immigrants" section: For the last question, what statement, "if true", would support the author's argument in the last sentence of the paragraph??? His argument was that Chinese immigrants were in large part responsible for the success of the region... so I picked the answer that was something like "Studies show that the region was extremely fertile if irrigated"... Any thoughts?
- READING COMP, "Neuroscience" section: For the very first question, what was the main point of the passage? I think I picked (B), which was that What's-her-face's discovery of the Nerve growth factor was an important discovery in the field.... Any thoughts?
-READING COMP, "Neuroscience" section: What would the author of the passage say is so significant about her discovery? I was torn between either (A) which was that it led to a better understanding of the development of the nervous system, and (E) which was that it discovered a specific substance in mouse tumors that stimulates nerve cell growth.
-LOGICAL REASONING, (I forget which section): The question gave us a paragraph about opposition parties that rise to power but then splinter into disagreements once they are victorious. We had to complete the sentence logically -- was it (B) that they must find a way to patch up their differences if they are to retain power, or (C) that they may not promulgate a new ideology to justify their policies once they are victorious???
I realize this is a little obsessive, but if anyone could let me know what they put, I'd be very grateful!
For the chinese question it was the fact that businesses now owned by chinese people on the Pacific Coast are doing well or whatever. This proved that they changed the lanscape or whatever.
The main point of the nerve passage was that her discoveries led to large improvement in the field.
The opposition parties had to refrain from breaking apart on ideological grounds once they gained power.
