Which of the following most accurately describes the "side effect" mentioned in the passage
It can be inferred from the passage that which of the following would most alleviate the "side effect"?
Pharmaceuticals imported into Bornland are inspected for quality to the extent that staff limitations permit. For the last few years, the proportion of shipments examined that have been found to be deficient has been consistently around 25 percent. This year, the number of inspectors and inspections was doubled, and only 21 percent of shipments inspected were found deficient. Clearly, therefore, the quality of pharmaceuticals being imported into Bornland has greatly improved.
The answer to which of the following would be most helpful in evaluating this argument?
The novel Georges, published under Alexander Dumas` name, may actually have been written by Felicien Mallefille. A comparison of Georges with well-known Dumas novels such as The Count of Monte Cristo suggests that Dumas had little to do with Georges. For example, Georges` characters are tiresomely earnest, while those from Dumas` well-known novels crack jokes and utter colorful oaths. Meanwhile, in a technical sense, Georges is well-written, while The Count of Monte Cristo, with all its verve and sparkle, is full of redundancies, repetitions, and non sequiturs. As Umberto Eco discovered while attempting to translate The Count of Monte Cristo, the charm of Dumas` novel and its "narrative wisdom" are inseparable from its "linguistically sludgy and gasping" prose.
The author of the passage would be most likely to agree with which of the following statements about Dumas as a novelist?
According to the passage, which of the following is true regarding the novel Georges?
Writings by Renaissance artists are often prized for the light they can shed on artists` lives and personalities. Despite their nearly equal life spans and impressive artistic output, Michelangelo, whose surviving writings are copious, is accessible in a way that Donatello is not. Other artists now less appreciated for their oeuvres, such as Cennino Cennini, are of greater value to modern historians for their written than for their painted output. The great paradox, however, is Leonardo da Vinci, who left thousands of pages of writing. These texts have been categorized for study, segmenting his body of writings into smaller groupings on subjects such as painting, science, anatomy, optics, and engineering. Yet despite the exhaustive application of this method, Leonardo, as an individual, remains thoroughly obscure.
The author introduces the subject of Leonardo da Vinci primarily in order to
Which of the following best characterizes the function of the highlighted sentence?
Aristotle (384-322 BC) was admired in the ancient world for the clarity of his style. Unfortunately, the writings that earned him this esteem have not survived. What we read today are not the books Aristotle prepared for publication, but lecture notes complied for his own use. These have one great advantage making no concessions to a lay readership, the Aristotelian works available to us are the ones that intellectually sophisticated commentators in late antiquity (A.D.300-600) found philosophically most rewarding. But they also have disadvantages. These texts were not designed for public consumption and are consequently often difficult to understand. The process by which they took their present form is unclear: in some cases there are signs of editorial activity either by Aristotle or by a later hand, so different versions of the same text may have been spliced together. In general their style is cryptic, condensed, and allusive, the Poetic , in particular, is frequently very obscure. This obscurity has created difficulties for later readers of Aristotle. The Poetics, though not widely known in antiquity, became extraordinarily influential beginning around 1500 in the Renaissance, especially among literary critics. Yet the text`s obscurities have left it open to conflicting interpretations. There are still fundamental disagreements about the meaning even of key concepts, such as katharsis.
The passage suggests which of the following about the "commentators"?
The passage indicates which of the following about the highlighted "writings"?
The author of the passage mentions "editorial activity" primarily in order to
Politician: The number of traffic deaths in our region has increased over the past several years. Because the poor condition of our roads and highways has caused a number of fatal accidents, the road commission recommends that, to reduce traffic deaths, the budget for road maintenance should be increased. Many more traffic deaths, however, are attributable to traffic congestion than to poor road conditions, and better roads will encourage people to drive more, worsening traffic congestion. So a better strategy for the road commission to recommend would be to reduce traffic congestion, though the best means for doing so remain to be determined.
In the politician`s argument, the two highlighted portions play which of the following roles?
In the mid-seventeenth century, some Native Americans in colonial New England started to keep and manage livestock for the first time, doing so according to their own cultural priorities and interests. Several factors influenced their decision to keep animals, including threats to their land base and to the productivity of their hunting. It might appear that animal husbandry as practiced by Europeans would have posed an insurmountable sociocultural challenge for Indians. Scholars studying the issue have argued that livestock would have compromised the mobility needed for winter hunting, destroyed crops, competed with wild game for resources, and violated prevailing conceptions of property and of human-animal interconnectedness. Such obstacles were indeed difficult, but creative ways to overcome them were found.
Which of the following best describes the primary function of the highlighted sentence?
It can be inferred that the author would agree with which of the following statements about animal husbandry by Native Americans in colonial New England?
