      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A person observing a phenomenon is likely to be surprised because when we observe something, especially if it is a new or unexpected phenomenon, it can often lead to feelings of surprise or astonishment. Observing something that is out of the ordinary or defies our expectations can trigger a sense of surprise in us. Therefore, it is reasonable to say that a person observing a phenomenon is likely to be surprised.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "A pianist who plays with brilliance will put everyone to sleep" is false. This statement suggests that a pianist who plays with brilliance, meaning they play with skill, talent, and expressiveness, will bore or tire out the listeners to the point of falling asleep. However, this is not true as playing with brilliance usually captivates and engages the audience, leaving them entertained and awake.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Exposure to bright sunlight is not necessary to develop a roll of film properly. In fact, exposing the film to bright sunlight can lead to overexposure and result in washed-out or distorted images. Developing film requires a controlled environment with specific chemicals and processes to ensure accurate and high-quality results.

    True-False: Decide whether each statement is true or false. To err is to do something correctly.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "To err is to do something correctly" is false. The word "err" means to make a mistake or to be incorrect. Therefore, the statement contradicts itself by saying that making a mistake is actually doing something correctly, which is illogical.

    True-False: Decide whether each statement is true or false. Early sailors used  the stars for navigation.                           

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Early sailors used the stars for navigation. This is true because before the invention of modern navigational tools, sailors relied on celestial navigation to determine their position at sea. They would use the stars, along with other celestial bodies such as the sun and moon, to calculate their latitude and longitude. By observing the position and movement of the stars, sailors could determine the direction they were heading and navigate their way across the oceans. This method of navigation was crucial for early explorers and played a significant role in maritime history.

      True

    • B.

      False

  • 10. 

     True-False: Decide whether each statement is true or false. A personal narrative is a story about someone else.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A personal narrative is a story that is told from the perspective of the narrator, who is usually the author or someone closely involved in the events being described. It is a firsthand account of personal experiences and emotions, making it about the narrator themselves rather than someone else. Therefore, the statement that a personal narrative is a story about someone else is false.

    Explanation
    This question is asking the test-taker to determine whether each statement is true or false. The answer given is "True," indicating that the statement is true. However, without the actual statements provided in the question, it is not possible to provide a specific explanation for why the answer is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

     True-False: Decide whether each statement is true or false. The Thesis Statement is the first sentence in each paragraph.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "The Thesis Statement is the first sentence in each paragraph" is false. A thesis statement is typically found in the introduction of an essay and provides a concise summary of the main point or argument of the paper. It is not necessarily the first sentence in each paragraph. Each paragraph in an essay usually contains a topic sentence that introduces the main idea of that particular paragraph, but it is not always the same as the thesis statement.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

     True-False: Decide whether each statement is true or false. The topic sentence is the main idea of the composition.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The topic sentence is not the main idea of the composition. While the topic sentence introduces the main topic or subject of the composition, the main idea is the central point or message that the writer wants to convey. The topic sentence may support or relate to the main idea, but it is not necessarily the main idea itself.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Decide which type of prepositional phrase is the following sentence:Look at the boat with the blue sail.

    • A.

      Preposition functioning as an adjective.

    • B.

      Preposition functioning as an adverb.

    Correct Answer
    A. Preposition functioning as an adjective.
    Explanation
    The prepositional phrase "with the blue sail" is functioning as an adjective because it is providing additional information about the noun "boat." It is describing the boat by specifying that it has a blue sail. Adjectives modify or describe nouns, and in this case, the prepositional phrase is modifying the noun "boat" by providing an adjective-like description.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Decide which type of prepositional phrase is the following sentence:The coyote runs after the rabbit.

    • A.

      Preposition functioning as an adjective.

    • B.

      Preposition functioning as an adverb.

    Correct Answer
    B. Preposition functioning as an adverb.
    Explanation
    In the sentence "The coyote runs after the rabbit," the prepositional phrase "after the rabbit" provides information about when or where the coyote runs. It modifies the verb "runs" by indicating the direction or location of the action. Therefore, the preposition "after" is functioning as an adverb in this sentence.
