    129.
    When, as the result of a long and costly war, the price of everything has risen and it is impossible to bring prices back to their previous level without causing the bankruptcy of most of the producers and borrowers, the following problem cannot be avoided:

    A.To state the problem is to solve it: for the devaluation of a currency is only a passing episode, although a painful one, in the life of a nation.

    B.The hours of labour which will be necessary in order to pay them, or to reconstruct what has been destroyed.

    C.What really counts is the equivalent in gold of the fixed charges upon the national economy.

    D.Shall the investors and hoarders of money condemn all the producers to ruin at the risk of a serious crisis and widespread unemployment, or shall the currency be sacrificed?

    6. To devalue fiduciary money by increasing its volume results in reducing the hours of labor and the materials which will be needed by the nation in defraying its fixed charges.

    2. ABCD
    3. ACBD
    4. CABD


    130.
    While trusts in the United States now display their power in broad daylight and are kept within due limits by suitable laws.

    A.To remedy the abuses to which this leads in Europe today, the legislator ought to make compulsory the publication of consolidated balance sheets combining in a single account the separate balance sheets of the subsidiaries, or, where this is not possible, the balance sheet of each one of them of which the parent company owns more than 30 per cent of the capital.

    B.The latter cannot unravel or follow the threads of the subtly tangled skein of subsidiaries and sub–subsidiaries.

    C.Meanwhile the directors harvest all the fruits in the form of a division of the spoils at each level of the subsidiaries and sub–subsidiaries.

    D.In France the mutual interpenetration of the big companies and their common participation in a multitude of subsidiaries which appear to be independent serves to conceal activities which are harmful not only to consumers but also to their own stockholders.

    6. Meanwhile the ending of big inheritances should remedy the perpetuation of family businesses.

    131.


    1. Preventive war, or the making of war in order to keep the peace, has served in its turn both nations and tyrants as reason or pretext.

    A. They always speak in terms of “our peace, that is, the peace that we want, our security, our national honor, demand…...”
    B. More recently we have heard the cry: “To have peace, we must be resolved to pay, and declare our intention of paying, whatever price is necessary-even the price of starting a war in order to force the co-operation of everyone in maintaining peace. We have adopted a new role for a democracy in becoming the initiators of war of aggression, the role of the first aggressors in behalf of peace.”
    C. But there is nothing new about that, except perhaps the intentions.
    D. Whether it is the Pax Romana, or the thousand – year peace of Hitler, or that suppression of the bourgeoisie which forms the pretext for Communism, the aim in each case is not freedom in peace, but domination.

    6. Tyrants or demagogues, empires, republics, or democracies have always claimed that they were making war in order to make peace - that is their peace.

    A.DABC
    B.ADBC
    C.ABCD
    D.BACD


    132.

    1. All around us there are many things which change: some of them even seem to disappear.
    A. At each second of time, an unlimited contingency might undo whatever was about to occur, placing everything continually in a state of uncertainty.
    B. If chance alone reigned in the world of matter, there would be stability only in chaos or in immobility, not in life.
    C. Experience shows, however, that nothing comes from nothing, and also that nothing is completely destroyed without being transformed into something else.
    D. A blind anarchic chance, intervening by itself in the universe and incapable of going beyond a first successful hit in order to improve upon it, would not provide us with an acceptable account of the origin of
    life.
    6. Chance alone does not constitute an explanation. The antithesis of chance is God, or purely physical laws such as we are discovering little by little.

    128.e
    This critical reasoning question requires you to weaken Shelly’s argument that a low unemployment rate is bad for business. 1 and 4 give two examples of how low unemployment hurts businesses, so they actually strengthen the argument instead of weakening it. Eliminate them along with 2 and 3, because these statements are basically off topic; they deal with government and universities, not businesses. 5 is the correct answer, because employed American workers’ buying more American products provides a significant advantage for businesses.

    129.a
    This critical reasoning question asks you to identify an assumption that Shelly relied on in making her conclusion that a low unemployment rate is not “good for America.” When you’re asked to find an assumption, look for a statement that supports the conclusion but isn’t actually stated in the argument.


    Eliminate choices that don’t support the conclusion. Whether businesses favor workers over the bottom line may affect the unemployment rate, but it doesn’t show how low unemployment isn’t good for America, so 4 is incorrect. 5 doesn’t support the conclusion, either. The conclusion is about what’s good for America in general, not a select few disinclined workers.

    A person’s assumption wouldn’t contradict a stated premise, so 3 can’t be right. 2 may support the conclusion, but it’s actually stated in the given premises and therefore can’t be an unstated assumption. A is the correct answer because it links Shelly’s premises about businesses and wealthy Americans to her conclusion about America in general.
