  1. What can be concluded about the female character referred to in these lines? "Make one," said Anthony. "Take her for a walk in the park, or a straw ride, or walk home with her from church Chance! Pshaw!" "You don't know the social mill, dad. [ She's part of the stream that turns it. Every hour and minute of her time is arranged for days in advance." (from "Mammon and the Archer" by O. Henry

    A. She is a leading participant in social activities.

    B. She has no time to spare from her work at a mill.

    C. She has to work hard to earn a living.

    D. She is dull with no time for romance

     

    2, What comment does the author make through the analogy at the end of this paragraph?  Great geniuses have the shortest biographies. Their cousins can tell you nothing about them. They lived in, their writings, and so their house and street life was trivial and commonplace. If you would know their tastes and complexions, the most admiring of their readers most resembles them. Plato, especially, has no external biography. If he had lover, wife, or children, we hear nothing of them. He ground them all into paint. As a good chimney burns its smoke, so a philosopher converts the value of all his fortunes into his intellectual performances. (From Representative Men, by Ralph Waldo Emerson)

     

                A. Plato did not want to have a family or a significant role in society.

     

                B. Plato's obsession with philosophy was a major impediment to his social life.

     

              C. The ideas that philosophers expound are the most notable aspects of  their lives

     

              D. Philosophers essentially think alike, despite the differences in their fortunes.

     

     3.Which words best describe the poet's view of the rose, as conveyed through the imagery in these lines? Rose, harsh rose, marred and with stint of petals, meagre flower, thin, sparse of leaf more precious than a wet rose single on a stem— you are caught in the drift. (from "Sea Rose" by Hilda Doolittle)

    1.  

     

    1. Beautiful and pure

    2. Evil and powerful

    3. Ugly but cherished

    4.  Love and worshiped
