    13. A nutritionist studying the effects of massive doses of vitamin C found that of a group of 600 people who regularly took 1,500 mg of vitamin C daily for a year, fewer than 9 percent suffered serious cases of flu; of a group of 600 people who took 250 mg of vitamin C (the standard recommended daily allowance) daily for a year, 34 percent suffered at least one serious case of flu; and of a group of 600 people who took no vitamin C for a year (other than that found in the foods in a balanced diet), 32 percent suffered at least one serious case of flu.

    Which of the following hypotheses is best supported by the evidence above?

    (A) The effectiveness of vitamin C in preventing serious cases of flu increases in direct proportion to the amount of vitamin C taken.
    (B) Vitamin C is helpful in preventing disease.
    (C) Doses of vitamin C that exceed the standard recommended daily allowance by 500 percent will reduce the incidence of serious cases of flu by 25 percent.
    (D) Massive doses of vitamin C can help to prevent serious case of flu.
    (E) A balanced diet contains less than 250 mg of vitamin C.

    14. Susan: Those who oppose experimentation on animals do not properly value the preservation of human life. Although animal suffering is unfortunate, it is justifiable if it can lead to cures for human ailments.
    Melvin: But much animal experimentation involves testing of ordinary consumer products such as soaps, dyes, and cosmetics.
    Susan: These experiments are justifiable on the same grounds, since cleanliness, convenience, and beauty are worthwhile human values deserving of support.

    Which of the following is the best statement of the logical flaw in Susan’s argument?

    (A) Her claim that animal experimentation is justifiable if it supports human values contradicts her claim that such experimentation is justifiable only if it leads to cures for human ailments.
    (B) She places a higher value on human cleanliness, convenience, and beauty than she does on the preservation of animal life.
    (C) She uses the word “value” in two different senses.
    (D) She assumes that all ordinary consumer products aid in the preservation of human life.
    (E) She fails to show how mere support for human values actually preserves human lives.

    Arrange the sentences to form a logical sequence

    Q17.
    1. The modern era may be said to have begun about the year 1895.
    A. So great a revolution in scientific thought has not occurred since Copernicus showed that the earth went round the sun.
    B. The first step was the experimental demonstration that there exist little electrified bodies very much smaller than a hydrogen atom.
    C. Between that year and the year 1900, those researches were begun which have changed our whole conception of matter.
    D. Further, these studies have changed our whole idea of the meaning and purpose of physical science.
    6. These little bodies were produced by passing an electric current through a glass tube almost entirely exhausted of air.
    a. CABD
    b. BDCA
    c. ACDB
    d. CDAB
    e. BCDA

    Q18.
    1. According to Einstein, gravitation is an inherent property of space-time.
    A. Now the path of a ray of light must be just as obedient to the laws of geometry as is any other path.
    B. The planets, for instance, move in the way they do because they are pursuing the easiest path through the space-time continuum that surrounds them.
    C. Accordingly a ray of light passing through what we call a gravitational field must follow the path appropriate to that field.
    D. It is not that they are acted on by a force; the path they follow is the natural ‘straight line’
    path in a region governed by that particular kind of non-Euclidean geometry.
    6. This means, in practice, that a ray of light from a distant star, passing near the sun will be deflected, and the star will appear displaced in the sky.
    a. CABD
    b. BDAC
    c. ACDB
    d. CDBA
    e. DCBA

    Q19.
    1. Leadership inevitably requires using power to influence the thoughts and actions of other people.
    A. The need to hedge these risks accounts in part for the development of collective leadership and the managerial ethic.
    B. Out of this conservatism and inertia organizations provide succession to power through the development of managers rather than individual leaders.
    C. Power in the hands of an individual entails human risks: first, the risk of equating power with the ability to get immediate results; second, the risk of ignoring the many different ways people can legitimately accumulate power; and third, the risk of losing self-control in the desire for power.
    D. Consequently, an inherent conservatism dominates the culture of large organizations.
    6. Perhaps the risks associated with power in the hands of an individual may be necessary ones for business to take if organizations are to break free of their inertia and bureaucratic conservatism.
    a. BDAC
    b. ADCB
    c. DCBA
    d. CADB
    e. ACDB
