    Questions 11-16
    The next famous woman writer to be considered is Dorothy Parker, an American poet, short story writer, and literacy critic who became famous in the early twentieth century for her witty but cynical observations on life. She got her first paying job as a writer in 1916 at the age of twenty-three when she began working for a women’s magazine, and nine years later she became a contributor to The New Yorker and regularly had her book reviews appear in “Constant Reader,” a column in that magazine.
    In addition to her magazine work, she published volumes of poetry and short stories with the recurrent themes of disappointment with life and the loss of idealism; these pessimistic themes, however, were presented with biting wit. One of her most famous observations, “Men seldom make passes/At girls who wear glasses,” came from the poem “News Item,” which was published in the volume Enough Rope (1926). This volume of poetry was followed by the Sunset Gun (1928), Death and Taxes (1931), and a collection of short stories, Here Lies (1939). Her book reviews were published in 1970 in a volume entitled “Constant Reader”.

    D.    Hunger

    Questions 17-18
    Fort Knox, Kentucky, is the site of a U.S. army post, but it is even more renowned for the Fort Knox Bullion Depository, the massive vault that contains the bulk of the U.S. government’s gold deposits. Completed in 1936, the vault is housed in a two-story building constructed of granite, steel, and concrete; the vault itself is made of steel and concrete and has a door that weighs more than twenty tons. Naturally, the most up-to-date security devices available are in place at Fort Knox, and the army post nearby provides further protection.

    A.    The city of Fort Knox, Kentucky
    B.    The federal gold depository

    D.    A Visit to Kentucky
    E.    The Site of a U.S. Army Post
    Questions 19 to 20
    IQ, or Intelligence Quotient, is defined as the ratio of a person’s mental age to chronological age, with the ratio multiplied by 100 to remove the decimal. Chronological age is easily determined; mental age is generally measured by some kind of standard test and is not so simple to define.
    In theory, a standardized IQ test is set up to measure an individual’s ability to perform intellectual operations such as reasoning and problem solving. These intellectual operations are considered to represent intelligence.
    In practice, it has been impossible to arrive at consensus as to which types of intellectual operations demonstrate intelligence. Furthermore, it has been impossible to devise a test without cultural bias, which is to say that any IQ tests so far proposed have been shown to reflect the culture of the test markers. Test takers from that culture would, it follows, score higher on such a test than the takers from a different culture with equal intelligence.
  19. What type of information is included in the first paragraph?
    A.    An argument
    B.     A definition
    C.    An opinion
    D.    A theory
    E.    A myth
  20. How does the information in the third paragraph differ from that in the second paragraph?
    A.    It presents a contrasting point of view.
    B.    It follows chronologically from the ideas in the second paragraph.
    C.    It presents real information rather than a premise.
    D.    It presents an example of the ideas in the second paragraph.
    E.    It presents a theory.
