internet passage:

1)  what did the author mean by "risk": something about someone doing some wrong to your business???

2)  which of the following would the author say is included in sovereignty?  directing entities in a set area

1. The answer was about companies being shady. Pretty confident.

2. Agreed.

And I think no one's disputing the sovereignty one so we can finalize that--the control over stuff in a certain area or whatever (physically defined basically)

Ok good.  I remember, that I crossed out the other options pretty confidently and was left with 'devisive business practices.

It was "devious."

Yes, I put that

Does anyone remember the question about how the author feels. One answer choice was like "overt something". I just remembered he agreed, but not which answer was right.

Hubble passage:

There was a question asking about the author's attitude toward the discovery by those dudes studying the stars (Cyptheis or some crap)--and some of the answers were something like "open opposition," "mild skepticism," "outright dismissal"

Remember this? what did yall put.
