    Monica: The sculpture commissioned for our town plaza has been scorned by the public ever since it went up. But since the people in our town do not know very much about contemporary art, the unpopularity of the work says nothing about its artistic merit and thus gives no reason for removing it.

    Hector: You may be right about what the sculpture’s popularity means about its artistic merit. However, a work of art that was commissioned for a public space ought to benefit the public, and popular opinion is ultimately the only way of determining what the public feels is to its benefit. Thus, if public opinion of this sculpture is what you say, then it certainly ought to be removed.

    9. Monica’s and Hector’s statements commit them to disagreeing about which one of the following principles?

    (A) Public opinion of a work of art is an important consideration in determining the work’s artistic merit.
    (B) Works of art commissioned for public spaces ought at least to have sufficient artistic merit to benefit the public.
    (C) The only reason for removing a work of art commissioned for a public space would be that the balance of public opinion is against the work.
    (D) The sculpture cannot benefit the public by remaining in the town plaza unless the sculpture has artistic merit.
    (E) In determining whether the sculpture should remain in the town plaza, the artistic merit of the sculpture should be central consideration.

    10.The argument Hector makes in responding to Monica depends on the assumption that

    (A) no matter what the public’s opinion is on an issue affecting the public good, that public opinion ought to be acted on, even though the opinion may not be a knowledgeable one
    (B) Monica’s assessment of the public’s opinion of the sculpture is accurate
    (C) if the sculpture had artistic merit, then even a public that was not knowledgeable about modern art would not scorn the sculpture
    (D) works of art commissioned for public spaces ought not to be expected to have artistic merit
    (E) if the public feels that it does not benefit from the sculpture, this shows that the public does not in fact benefit from the sculpture

    11. A large number of drivers routinely violate highway speed limits. Since driving at speeds that exceed posted limits is a significant factor in most accidents, installing devices in all cars that prevent those cars from traveling faster than the speed limit would prevent most accidents.

    Which one of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

    (A) A person need not be a trained mechanic to install the device properly.
    (B) Most accidents are caused by inexperienced drivers.
    (C) A driver seldom needs to exceed the speed limit to avoid an accident when none of the other drivers involved are violating the speed limit.
    (D) Most drivers who exceed the speed limit do so unintentionally.
    (E) Even if the fines for speed-limit violations were increased, the number of such violations would still not be reduced.

    12. In a recession, a decrease in consumer spending causes many businesses to lay off workers or even to close. Workers who lose their jobs in a recession usually cannot find new jobs. The result is an increase in the number of people who are jobless. Recovery from a recession is defined by an increase in consumer spending and an expansion of business activity that creates a need for additional workers, but businesspeople generally have little confidence in the economy after a recession and therefore delay hiring additional workers as long as possible.

    The statements above, if true, provide most support for which one of the following conclusions?

    (A) Recessions are usually caused by a decrease in business people’s confidence in the economy.
    (B) Governmental intervention is required in order for an economy to recover from a recession.
    (C) Employees of businesses that close during a recession make up the majority of the workers who lose their jobs during that recession.
    (D) Sometimes recovery from a recession does not promptly result in a decrease in the number of people who are jobless.
    (E) Workers who lose their jobs during a recession are likely to get equally good jobs when the economy recovers.
