### The pie charts above show the percentage of students at each faculty at York University and the number of non-US residents in the Arts faculty. These percentages have been rounded to the nearest whole number. There are a total of 1049 students in the Arts faculty. Use this information to answer the following questions. How many students are there in the university?

• A.

4640

• B.

• C.

B. 4560
Explanation
The pie charts provide information about the percentage of students in each faculty at York University and the number of non-US residents in the Arts faculty. We are given that there are 1049 students in the Arts faculty. To find the total number of students in the university, we can calculate the sum of the number of students in each faculty. The percentage of students in the Arts faculty is not provided, so we cannot determine the exact number of students in the university. Therefore, the correct answer cannot be determined based on the given information.

### The pie charts above show the percentage of students at each faculty at York University and the number of non-US residents in the Arts faculty. These percentages have been rounded to the nearest whole number. There are a total of 1049 students in the Arts faculty. Use this information to answer the following questions. If six percent of science students are Asians, how many Asian students are studying science?

• A.

48

• B.

66

• C.

120

• D.

57

• E.

43

D. 57
Explanation
Since the pie chart shows the percentage of students in each faculty, we can calculate the number of science students by multiplying the percentage by the total number of students in the faculty. Given that there are 1049 students in the Arts faculty, we can calculate the number of science students as follows: 6% of 1049 = 0.06 * 1049 = 62.94. Since the number of students must be a whole number, we round down to the nearest whole number, which is 62. Therefore, the correct answer is 62, not 57.

### A train traveling at 60mph enters a terminal that is 5 miles long. The train is one mile long. How many minutes does it take for the train to pass the tunnel?

• A.

7

• B.

4

• C.

10

• D.

5

• E.

6

E. 6
Explanation
The train is traveling at a speed of 60mph, which means it covers a distance of 60 miles in one hour. Since the train is one mile long, it will take 1 minute for the entire train to pass a stationary point. However, in this case, the train is passing through a tunnel that is 5 miles long. Therefore, it will take an additional 5 minutes for the train to completely pass through the tunnel. Hence, the total time it takes for the train to pass the tunnel is 1 minute (for the train length) + 5 minutes (for the tunnel length) = 6 minutes.

### The product of two positive numbers is p. If each of the numbers is increased by 2, the new product is how much greater than twice the sum of the two original numbers?

• A.

P-2

• B.

P

• C.

P+2

• D.

P+4

• E.

2p+4

D. P+4
Explanation
When each of the numbers is increased by 2, the new product can be calculated by multiplying (p+2) with (p+2). This simplifies to p^2 + 4p + 4. Twice the sum of the two original numbers is 2p. The difference between the new product and twice the sum of the two original numbers is (p^2 + 4p + 4) - 2p = p^2 + 2p + 4. Therefore, the new product is p+4 greater than twice the sum of the two original numbers.

### Which of the following can be used to illustrate that not all prime numbers are odd?

• A.

1

• B.

2

• C.

3

• D.

4

• E.

5

B. 2
Explanation
The number 2 can be used to illustrate that not all prime numbers are odd because it is the only even prime number. Prime numbers are defined as numbers greater than 1 that are only divisible by 1 and themselves. While most prime numbers are odd, 2 is an exception to this rule as it is divisible by 1 and 2, making it the only even prime number.

### W is greater than 1          Quantity A                       Quantity B             7w – 4 2w+5

• A.

Quantity A is greater

• B.

Quantity B is greater

• C.

The two quantities are equal

• D.

The information cannot be determined from the information given

D. The information cannot be determined from the information given
Explanation
The given information states that "W is greater than 1." However, this is the only information provided, and we do not have any specific values for W. Without knowing the exact value of W, we cannot determine the relationship between the two quantities. Therefore, the information provided is not sufficient to determine whether Quantity A is greater, Quantity B is greater, or if the two quantities are equal.

B. 15x
Explanation
The given sequence is a list of multiples of x. Starting with 12x, each subsequent number is obtained by multiplying the previous number by a factor of x. Therefore, the next number in the sequence would be 15x, obtained by multiplying 12x by a factor of 5/4.

• A.

Restrained

• B.

Frivolous

• C.

Ungainly

• D.

Controlled

• E.

Grandiloquent

B. Frivolous
Explanation
The correct answer is "Frivolous." The sentence states that the Duke had led an austere existence before his marriage, implying that he was serious and restrained.

This suggests that he sees her behavior as frivolous, lacking in seriousness or importance.

In the context of the sentence, it suggests that human beings have a natural inclination or tendency to feel an affinity and awe for other living things. This is compared to other innate behaviors like being inquisitive or protecting our young. Therefore, "predisposed" is the most suitable word to complete the sentence and convey the intended meaning.

• A.

Fragrant

• B.

Evocative

• C.

Dolorous

• D.

• E.

E. Fetid
Explanation
The correct answer is "Fetid" because it accurately describes the unpleasant and foul smells associated with the pond.

"Fetid" means having an extremely unpleasant or offensive smell, making it the most suitable choice to complete the sentence.

### There may be a threshold below which blood pressure reductions become ________ given that a long-running study showed no decreased heart risk for drops in blood pressure below a certain point.

• A.

Worthwhile

• B.

Indiscernible

• C.

Significant

• D.

Superflous

• E.

Arduous

D. Superflous
Explanation
The correct answer is "superflous". This means that blood pressure reductions below a certain point may not have any additional benefit or significance in terms of decreasing heart risk. The long-running study mentioned in the question showed that there was no decreased heart risk associated with drops in blood pressure below a certain threshold. Therefore, any further reductions in blood pressure beyond that point would be considered unnecessary or superfluous.

• A.

Brevity

• B.

Pertinacity

• C.

Judiciousness

• D.

Conciseness

• E.

Indirectness

E. Indirectness
Explanation
The answer "Indirectness" is the correct choice because the sentence states that lawyers drive their sports cars in the same fashion that they construct their cases. It implies that just as lawyers may take circuitous routes while constructing their arguments, they also drive their cars in a similarly indirect manner. This suggests that the lawyer's driving style is not straightforward or direct, but rather characterized by indirectness.

Explanation
In this scenario, each person shakes hands with every other person once. To calculate the total number of handshakes, we can use the formula n(n-1)/2, where n is the number of people. In this case, there are 10 people, so the calculation would be 10(10-1)/2 = 45. Therefore, there will be a total of 45 handshakes.
