Sample QuestionThe study of living things on earth has a long history. Because of the incredible richness and diversity of life, most of the effort in biology and its predecessor, natural history, has been expanded in an attempt to describe what there is ―simple exploration and cataloguing. The classical sciences of descriptive botany and zoology, with their emphasis on classification, are examples of this sort of work. The division of living things into the plant kingdom and animal kingdom (plus three more kingdoms added by modern scientists to describe microscopic organisms and fungi), and the collection of all living things into a coherent classification scheme, are the fruit of this work. During the past century and a half, however, two important discoveries have changed the face of the life sciences. The first of these was the development of the Theory of Evolution by Charles Darwin and others. The mechanism of natural selection gave naturalists for the first time a way of answering questions about how life came to have the forms it has, rather than just questions about what those forms are. The great social and intellectual turmoil triggered by Darwin’s work is interesting, of course, but is not relevant from a purely scientific standpoint. What does matter is that we can now understand how the observed diversity of living things could have arisen through the action of a simple and easily comprehended mechanism. The original Darwinian notions have been modified and expanded since his time, of course, and there is still debate about the pace at which species evolve. Nevertheless, the main principle of Darwinism ―that living things change and adapt in response to their environment― has been incorporated as one of the pillars of the modern life sciences. What is the topic of this passage?

Sample QuestionStress: a modern illness? The twenty-first century seems to have brought with it a whole range of new medical problems. Many of these are related to our increased use of technology. For example, there are now several problems connected with using computers and mobile phones.Certain parts of our body ache because they are overused, like thumbs from too much texting, eyes from peering at small screens repeatedly and our ears from the increased volume of music we listen to on MP3 players and at clubs. (1) ……………………… . The list goes on and on. However, one of the biggest dangers to health today is not a direct result of technology but it is related to it. That is stress.

Sample QuestionThe Case of the Ruined Roses "That was a neat program on UFO's," said Nina to her cousin Max as they walked down the street. "I think what really amazed me was that UFO's were reported as early as 1800." "That's pretty hard to believe," said Max. "Anyway, do you really believe there are such things?" Nina started to answer when they heard a loud scream coming from Coach Thornton's house. "Come on," shouted Max. They ran into the yard where the coach was staring at ten rose bushes that had been pulled from the ground. "Look at that!" he demanded. "Just look at that." "That's terrible," cried Nina. "Who could have done it?" Coach Thornton looked disgusted. "I had to bench three of my best football players for cutting class. They were pretty mad at me." "First thing, we'd better get these roses back in the ground," said Max. "Then we'll figure out who did it." Nina and Max helped Coach Thornton replant the roses. Then he invited them in for milk and cookies. "Now," said Nina. "Am I right? You benched Sam Cartland, Mike Brooks, and Alex Avery." "And you lost the game," added Max. The coach rubbed his eyes. "I know, but rules are rules." "I'll bet one of them did it to get even," said Nina. "How about we nose around a little?" "Let's see," said Max after they left. "Coach said the roses were all right when he looked out at nine. But shortly after ten, he found them pulled up." "So, we check to see who doesn't have an alibi between nine and ten. Look!" Nina pointed. "There's Alex Avery over at the Dairy Bar." Alex looked up as they came in. "Hi kids," he drawled. "Hello, yourself," said Max. "We missed seeing you in the football game." "That was a bummer all right. But I guess the coach didn't have any choice." "Where you been all morning?" asked Nina. "I've been right here since nine." He turned to the girl behind the counter. "Isn't that right, Amy?" "Uh huh. You helped me carry in that heavy box." "So you weren't anywhere near Coach Thornton's house?" asked Max. Alex looked surprised. "No, I'm not mad at him, but I don't intend to visit him." After they left, Nina looked down the street. "That's Sam Cartland's house. Let's see what he's been doing." "What do you two want," growled Sam when he came to the door. "Hey, lighten up, Sam," said Max. "Can we talk with you?" "Sure, come on in." He pressed a button on his remote control and turned off his VCR. "I've been watching some football tapes to improve my game." "We wondered what you were doing between nine and ten this morning," said Nina. "I was right here watching that program on UFO's." "That was a good program," said Nina. Remember when that guy from Roswell, New Mexico insisted he had been abducted?" "Yeah," laughed Sam. "The one with the bushy hair. Funny how this has been going on for so long. That pilot, Kenneth Arnold, started it back in 1947 with the stuff he saw." "Very interesting," said Max, trying not to look bored. "But we have to get going." "Maybe we can find Mike Brooks working out at the gym," said Nina as they left. "Probably," agreed Max. They found him on the treadmill. "Hey, you two want to join down here? It's a great place to work out." "Not right now," said Max. "We were wondering about what you were doing from nine to ten this morning." "Right here. You can check the log book. Why?" "Just curious," said Nina with a smile as they went back to the desk. Sure enough, Mike had signed in at five of nine. This is great," Nina groaned. "They all have alibis." "I'm not so sure of that," said Max. Whom does Max suspect?

Sample QuestionThe study of history provides many benefits. First, we learn from the past. We may repeat mistakes, but, at least, we have the opportunity to avoid them. Second, history teaches us what questions to ask about the present. Contrary to some people’s view, the study of history is not the memorization of names, dates, and places. It is the thoughtful examination of the forces that have shaped the courses of human life. We can examine events from the past and then draw inferences about current events. History teaches us about likely outcomes. Another benefit of the study of history is the broad range of human experience which is covered. War and peace are certainly covered as are national and international affairs. However, matters of culture (art, literature, and music) are also included in historical study. Human nature is an important part of history: emotions like passion, greed, and insecurity have influenced the shaping of world affairs. Anyone who thinks that the study of history is boring has not really studied history.What is the main idea of this passage?
