Questions 20 and 21. These questions are designed to test your reading comprehension skills on a basic and more advanced level. Read the passages below and mark the letter of the most correct answer. There are no trick questions. 

free market describes a market without economic intervention and regulation by government except to regulate against force or fraud. The terminology is used by economists and in popular culture. A free market requires protection of property rights, but no regulation, no subsidization, no single monetary system, and no governmental monopolies. It is the opposite of a controlled market, where the government regulates prices or how property is used.

The theory holds that within the ideal free market, property rights are voluntarily exchanged at a price arranged solely by the mutual consent of sellers and buyers. By definition, buyers and sellers do not coerce each other, in the sense that they obtain each other's property rights without the use of physical force, threat of physical force, or fraud, nor are they coerced by a third party (such as by government via transfer payments) and they engage in trade simply because they both consent and believe that what they are getting is worth more than or as much as what they give up. Price is the result of buying and selling decisions en masse as described by the law of supply and demand.

Free market economics is closely associated with laissez-faire economic philosophy, which advocates approximating this condition in the real world by mostly confining government intervention in economic matters to regulating against force and fraud among market participants. Some free market advocates oppose taxation as well, claiming that the market is more efficient at providing all valuable services of which defense and law are no exception, that such services can be provided without direct taxation and that consent would be the basis of political legitimacy making it a morally consistent system.

Questions 23 and 24. These questions are designed to test your reading comprehension skills on a basic and more advanced level. Read the passages below and mark the letter of the most correct answer. There are no trick questions.


Romans 7:14-25: "14We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. 

21So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22For in my inner being I delight in God's law; 23but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. 24What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! 

So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin."

Read the paragraph below to answer the following four questions.

The foreboding city of Baghdad brings chills of fear that are only penetrated by its transcendent sunsets. The rocky ground just beneath the barrel of my rigid M240B machine gun is carefully scanned for explosives. Just beyond the rocks is the desolate road which mocks my worries by providing the enemy a valued avenue of approach. The brisk draft runs farther down my spine as I hear the eerie prayers shouted from rooftop to rooftop. The hateful noise belongs to the cloaked black figures bowing in unison. In the distance, beyond the menace, an exquisite array of colors pierces my doubts. Finally, my chill is warmed by an orange sun falling slowly out of sight. The clouds dance just above the sun. They remind me of the joy provided by my salvation. It is then I realize, even in the valley of the shadow of death I find peace; the hand of God has painted a magnificent sunset just for me.

·         Question 30

 

 

Refer to the paragraph below in order to answer the following four questions.

In censorship, silence is not always golden. The word "censorship” means to silence, limit, or repress information, whether in the media, through music, artistic expression, political, social, theological, or educational information, not within the norms of a particular mode of thought concerning those particular standards that they each support. Rather, it is the control of information showing itself in the form of a boycott, embargo, injunction, restriction, and last but not least, “silence.” Censorship is not permission, a green light, nor an allowance of complete self-expression. In today’s world, the computer’s phrases: “to delete”, “empty recycle bin” or even “erase from the hard drive” could mean censorship. Sometimes people confuse censorship with the thought of limiting it to only a couple of types or that censorship is always valid or deserving. Others think it only comes through a dictatorship type of government. A few examples would be a court-imposed gag order: a judicial judge signs a paper to put a hush order on the media, regarding information that can compromise a case. Still another example, would be by taking the 5th Amendment, individuals can choose to remain silent because the information may only serve to incriminate them. Consequently, it also seems a means of protection for them. Churches have their own laws and standards, some of which in ancient Biblical times even silenced women (1 Timothy 2: 11-14). In censorship, silence is not always golden, even secrets between friends can be a form of voluntary censorship, or not!


 

Answer True or False: I have read the above paragraph. 

 

True

False

·         Question 31

 

 

In the paragraph, which of the following best describes the concluding sentence?

The concluding sentence is ineffective because it introduces a new detail or supporting point.

The concluding sentence is highly effective and no revision is needed.

The concluding sentence is ineffective because an exclamation mark is used.

The concluding sentence is ineffective because it restates the topic sentence.

·         Question 32

 

 

Which of the following sentences best defines “censorship” in connotative terms?

 

Rather, it [censorship] is the control of information showing itself in the form of a boycott, embargo, injunction, restriction, and last but not least, “silence.”

In censorship, silence is not always golden.

The word "censorship” means to silence, limit, or repress information.

Still another example, would be by taking the 5th Amendment, individuals can choose to remain silent because the information may only serve to incriminate them.

·         Question 33

 

 

In the passage, which of the following would be considered the topic sentence?

 

Others think it only comes through a dictatorship type of government.

Sometimes people confuse censorship with the thought of limiting it to only a couple of types or that censorship is always valid or deserving.

Still another example, would be by taking the 5th Amendment, individuals can choose to remain silent because the information may only serve to incriminate them.

Read the paragraph below to answer the following four questions:

The wedding process is often trying; however, during my wedding planning, the easiest and most essential aspect was choosing my gown. As soon as my husband proposed, I began purchasing wedding magazines for ideas, but most importantly, I used the magazines in search of dress options. I narrowed my options down to local stores, which had gowns closest to my style. Because department-sized wedding shops can be intimidating, I made an appointment at a small, bridal boutique. I was allowed to choose six gowns to take to the fitting room. In most bridal stores, the dresses are larger than the average woman’s size; therefore, I had a difficult time envisioning myself wearing most that I had chosen to try on. Yet, the first one I picked was similar to all the dresses I envied in the magazines. I put this dress on and knew it had to be mine. I saw no purpose in continuing with my search. It was evident that I had found the perfect gown for my wedding. The preparation for a wedding can be difficult at times; yet, I found the perfect dress to ensure a key element of my wedding day.

·         Question 40

 

 

Read the paragraph below to answer the following four questions. 

My life after marriage is a far cry from what it was before I married. As a single teenager and the daughter of an evangelistic minister, traveling was a way of life. I packed in less than thirty minutes for a journey of a few weeks to a month. I journeyed all over the United States and some in Canada and Mexico. Now, I find myself hesitating to leave the house to acquire groceries. My week usually consists of departing for church, which is situated across the street. Once upon a time, I knew tens of thousands of people in all the churches we visited; meeting new people as we traveled back to these places yearly. Unfortunately, in my husband’s home town, I have found it difficult to even make new friends or meet new people. Prior, traveling meant that I was surrounded by people all the time. Currently, I spend most of my days alone, seldom leaving my bedroom except to do chores or spend time with the kids. As a minister and minister’s daughter, I found myself in church several days a week; ministering in each service to one degree or another. In my husband’s home church I am seldom asked to minister, yet I still receive calls from time to time askin
