Seperately, return back rest of the exam sheets. Use a #2 pencil to fill your scantron. Write your code number and bubble it in under ““EXAM NUMBER””. Bubble in the exam version (see letter AH at bottom of page) in your scantron under ““TEST VERSION””. MULTIPLE CHOICE. Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question. 1) A girl wishes to swim across a river to a point directly opposite as shown.
