    According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, African American women in the U.S. are four times as likely to die during childbirth due to a lack of access to prenatal care compared to White women. This suggests that there are significant disparities in healthcare access and outcomes between these two racial groups, with African American women facing higher risks and barriers to receiving adequate prenatal care.

    C. 52%
    Explanation
    According to a study by the American Association of Physicians for Human Rights, 52% of physicians report witnessing a colleague giving reduced care or refusing care to lesbian, gay, or bisexual patients. This indicates that a significant number of healthcare professionals have observed discriminatory behavior towards LGBTQ+ individuals within their profession. This finding highlights the importance of addressing and rectifying such biases to ensure equitable and inclusive healthcare for all patients, regardless of their sexual orientation.

      Saudi Arabia and Turkey

    • B.

    • D.

      The U.S. and the U.K.

    Correct Answer
    D. The U.S. and the U.K.
    Explanation
    In a 2007 study conducted by UNICEF, the treatment of children in the 23 wealthiest countries was evaluated based on 40 indicators of child well-being. The study aimed to assess how well these countries were meeting the needs and ensuring the well-being of children. The two countries that received the lowest ratings in terms of child well-being were the U.S. and the U.K. This suggests that these countries were not performing as well as the other countries in providing a favorable environment for children's growth and development.

    According to a 2006 report from the American Civil Liberties Union, African Americans comprise more than 37% of people arrested for drug use, 59% of those convicted for drug use, and 74% of those sentenced to prison for drug use. African Americans comprise what percentage of U.S. drug users?

    • A.

      15%

    • B.

      30%

    • C.

      45%

    • D.

      60%

    Correct Answer
    A. 15%
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 15%. This answer can be inferred from the statistics provided in the question. The report states that African Americans comprise 37% of people arrested for drug use, 59% of those convicted for drug use, and 74% of those sentenced to prison for drug use. However, it does not provide information about the total percentage of African Americans among all U.S. drug users. Therefore, we cannot conclude that African Americans make up the majority of drug users in the U.S. and can assume that the percentage is lower than the percentages mentioned in the report. The closest option is 15%.

    D. $50,000 and $40,000, respectively
    Explanation
    The correct answer is $50,000 and $40,000, respectively. This is because the question asks for the median annual incomes for Latina and Native American women with graduate degrees, and the given information does not provide any data to suggest that their incomes would be higher than those of white men. Therefore, it can be inferred that their median annual incomes would be lower.

    According to UNICEF, the wealth of the three richest people in the world is roughly equal to the combined Gross Domestic Product of:

    • A.

      The 8 poorest countries

    • B.

      The 28 poorest countries

    • C.

      The 48 poorest countries

    • D.

      The 68 poorest countries

    Powder cocaine (largely used by wealthy people) and crack cocaine (largely used by economically disadvantaged people) contain roughly the same amount of the drug per gram. Under federal law, how much of these substances must an individual be convicted of possessing to be sentenced to a mandatory minimum of five years in prison?

    • A.

      500 grams of powder or crack cocaine

    • B.

      50 grams of powder or 5 grams of crack cocaine

    • C.

      500 grams of powder or 5 grams of crack cocaine

    • D.

      5 grams of powder or crack cocaine

    Correct Answer
    C. 500 grams of powder or 5 grams of crack cocaine
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 500 grams of powder or 5 grams of crack cocaine. This is because under federal law, the possession of 500 grams of powder cocaine or 5 grams of crack cocaine is considered a threshold for a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison. The law treats crack cocaine differently due to its association with more economically disadvantaged communities, resulting in a lower threshold for possession.

    A Princeton study of elite universities in the U.S. found that legacy applicants—people, usually white and wealthy, with a parent or grandparent who attended the institution—are far more privileged by legacy status than applicants of color are by affirmative action policies. The study determined that legacy status was roughly equivalent to how much of a boost to an applicant’s SAT score?

      20 points

    • B.

      90 points

    • C.

      160 points

    • D.

      220 points

    Correct Answer
    C. 160 points
    Explanation
    Legacy applicants, who are typically white and wealthy, receive a significant advantage in the college admissions process compared to applicants of color benefiting from affirmative action policies, according to a Princeton study. The study concludes that legacy status is equivalent to a boost of 160 points to an applicant's SAT score. This implies that legacy applicants have a much higher chance of being admitted to elite universities due to their family connections, further exacerbating inequalities in higher education.
