PffP Midterm exam 1 – Essay Questions 6 Oct 2005 Last name______________ First name_______________SID___________GSI_______ Essay questions (20 pts): pick one and only one to answer; circle the one you choose. Write a page on the back of this sheet . This side is for your personal notes only. Cover the important points in a clear and concise manner – as if you have only a few minutes to tell the President, your roommate, or your parent, what that person needs to know. Clear, effective writing is important. If English is not your first language, state so at the top of your essay. If you need to re-write it, ask for a new copy of the exam. Be concise ; points will be deducted if your essay is overly long! 1. "Solar power has a great future." Discuss this claim. How will it be used? Which claims of solar power advocates make sense, and which ones don't? What are the advantages and disadvantages of solar power. Be specific, and give numbers where appropriate. 2. Nuclear terrorism . How real is the threat that an organization such as al Qaeda could develop a nuclear weapon? What difficulties do they face to get the different kinds of nuclear weapons? What approach would be most likely to work for them? This page is for name and notes only. The essay should be on the other side.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
