  1. Choose the passage from "A Cat Is Not a Can of Soup" that represents the author's opinion on the subject.

    I happen to think that animals from shelters appreciate good homes even more than pet shop animals do, making them more faithful and affectionate.

    When the shelter gets too crowded, some of the confused animals have to be sent to temporary foster homes.

    Also, they will not allow any pet to leave the shelter until it has had its shots and has been neutered.

    But always you yourself you hid.

  1. The main argument in President Obama's "Back to School" speech is that whether we fall behind or race ahead as a nation is going to depend on the nation's young people.

    Read the passage.

    It starts, obviously, with being the best student that you can be. Now, that doesn’t always mean that you have to have a perfect score on every assignment. It doesn’t mean that you’ve got to get straight As all the time--although that’s not a bad goal to have. It means that you have to stay at it. 

    Which best explains how the passage supports the main argument?

    The passage does not support the main argument because it shows that education will help our nation get ahead in the future.

    The passage supports the main argument because it shows that a student's education is unimportant.

    The passage does not support the main argument because it shows that a student's education is unimportant.

  1. Look at the passage from "A Corn-Song."

    On the wide veranda white,
    In the purple failing light,
    Sits the master while the sun is lowly burning;
    And his dreamy thoughts are drowned
    In the softly flowing sound
    Of the corn-songs of the field-hands slow returning.

    Oh, we hoe de co'n
    Since de ehly mo'n;
    Now de sinkin' sun
    Says de day is done.

    How does the use of a refrain contribute to the meaning of the poem?

    The refrain makes the reader want to sing the poem like a song.

    The repetition emphasizes the disconnect between the landowner and the workers.

    Adding a refrain causes the reader to read the poem faster, because some of the text repeats.

  1. Read the passage.

    You won't have a problem finding a gentle or sociable pet at the shelter. You might have the idea that all the animals there have something wrong with them. If they aren't diseased, they must be vicious. “That's just not so,” according to Toni Troy, who volunteers at the Ferndale Shelter. She says that the majority of its inhabitants are sweet and fearlessly affectionate. Good pets are often abandoned by selfish owners who move, have a change in their family situation, or dump the litters after letting their animals breed. Sometimes people just decide that they don’t want a pet any longer, even if that animal has been with the family for years. Other animals wind up at the shelter because they strayed too far from their homes and their families can’t find them.

    Which detail is most helpful in revealing that most pets are in shelters due to no fault of their own?

    She explains that there are gentle, sociable pets at the shelter.

    She says that some pets at the shelter were abandoned by their owners.

    She reveals that the reader might think there is something wrong with shelter pets.
