    The correct answer is "The photographs are on the piano." This answer is supported by the information given in the question, which states that "This is the first time she's seen the piano." This implies that she is seeing the piano for the first time, and since the photographs are on the piano, it can be inferred that she is also seeing the photographs for the first time.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The given answer, "He was too mad to say anything when he left," is the correct explanation because it directly relates to the previous statements about the person being hungry, rushing off to eat, and finding good buys at the store. Being mad and not saying anything when leaving could be a result of the hunger and rush, causing frustration and anger.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The answer states that the gardens are on the opposite side of the park. This means that the gardens are located on a side of the park that is directly across from where the speaker is currently located. The other statements in the question do not provide any information about the location of the gardens, so they are not relevant to the answer.

    Question 5

    • A.

      She didn't know about the painting exhibit. 

    • B.

      She wasn't very familiar with the name "Reynolds Hall." 

    • C.

      She didn't realize the man was speaking to her. 

    • D.

       She wasn't sure where the Art Building was. 

    Correct Answer
    B. She wasn't very familiar with the name "Reynolds Hall." 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "She wasn't very familiar with the name 'Reynolds Hall.'" This is because the passage states that she didn't know about the painting exhibit, wasn't familiar with the name "Reynolds Hall," didn't realize the man was speaking to her, and wasn't sure where the Art Building was. Out of these options, not being familiar with the name "Reynolds Hall" is the most likely reason for her lack of knowledge about the painting exhibit.

    Question 6

    • A.

      The main library

    • B.

      A painting

    • C.

      A service road

    • D.

      A metal sculpture 

    Correct Answer
    D. A metal sculpture 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is a metal sculpture because the question asks for the description of the main library, and out of the given options, a metal sculpture is the most relevant and logical choice. A metal sculpture is typically found in outdoor areas, such as parks or university campuses, and it is unlikely to find a metal sculpture inside a library. Therefore, the other options (a painting, a service road) are less likely to be the correct answer.

    • D.

      She teaches Art

    Correct Answer
    A. She's a graduate student.
    Explanation
    The given answer "She's a graduate student" is the correct one because the other statements do not provide any information about her occupation or current activity. The fact that she is a graduate student is the only specific detail mentioned, indicating her academic pursuit.

      Editorial Writers

    • D.

      Teachers

    Correct Answer
    A. Journalism Students
    Explanation
    The given answer "Journalism Students" is the correct answer because the list of occupations mentioned in the question includes "Reporters" and "Editorial Writers," which are both roles within the field of journalism. Therefore, it can be inferred that the common thread among the occupations listed is that they are all related to journalism. Since "Journalism Students" are also involved in the study and practice of journalism, they fit into this category as well.

      The Circulation Department.

      The Production Department

    • D.

      The City Desk

    Correct Answer
    B. The Circulation Department. 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is The Circulation Department. The question suggests that there are multiple departments being mentioned, and the task is to identify the correct one. Out of the options provided, The Circulation Department is the only one that is a department within an organization. The other options, such as The International Desk, The Production Department, and The City Desk, do not necessarily refer to departments within an organization. Therefore, The Circulation Department is the most suitable answer.

    • B.

      Reporting local news.

    • C.

      Printing the newspaper.

    • D.

      Gathering news from international sources.

    Correct Answer
    B. Reporting local news.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is reporting local news because the other options, such as distributing the newspaper throughout the city, printing the newspaper, and gathering news from international sources, are all related to the logistics and production of the newspaper rather than the content itself. Reporting local news involves gathering information about events and issues happening within the community and presenting it to the readers.
