I am almost sure 22 was a main point and the answer was something like a legal rule is used in a way it was not initially thought to be able to be used - wording not exact  ;)

I think the point was that other fossil remains were not used as evidence of relict behavior.

There was one in the Prolonge passage that was which of the following is not used as evidence that the Prolonge exibits relict behavior or whatever...I don't remember exactly

I think some choices were:
It is fast enough to outrun extinct predators
Mates are chosen on the basis of speed
--> The fossil remains of other species

Can anyone clear this up at all?

im sure herd behavior must have been one of the incorrect choices...

Yeah, I think so.  So was fossil remains the AC?  Anyone have any more feeling on this?  Also, are we ready for an updated list?

Does anyone honestly beleive that for the first time ever, there will be either 3 scores in the 170s you cannot get or that 99/100 will equal 179?  It seems that basing that conclusion on feelings and speculation is beyond premature.  91/100 equals 170 is the harshest reasonably possible curve.

I don't think so.  I think it just said they were exposed to music similar to that which is common in most cultures.  Anyone else?

amen - i agree - i think most people missed the boat here - the answer is that teenagers and adults also

For the one about humans being predisposed to certain intervals, the choice about the infants not hearing the music before the test had to have been wrong to strenghten it.
The question asks to STRENGTHEN why they would all respond more to these intervals and the conclusion of the argument said that many cultures use these intervals in their music. (this in the real world happens to be true, by the way) I put the answer choice about many teens and adults in other studies also responded similarly as the babies did, because this would mean that HUMANS are predisposed to hearing those intervals by the music that they listen to , no matter what culture they are from
(all this from a music major)
Take this s you will ;)

Wrong, the point was that the babies are NATURAL inclined to respond to the music that is common in many cultures.  If the infants had been exposed to it previously, the response may not be innate, it may be learned.  Thus knowing that the infants had not been exposed to the music before strengthened the argument that they are naturally inclined to respond to said music.

on the economist passage, wasn't there one about the town and the answer was something about how the town didn't act in its own best interest because they had been fooled.

The last passage did not have a main point question

Number 22, I think was main point

Something like 'A legal theory that was thought to only be applicable in a limited area can be used in other areas' or something.
