Now that you know all three lengths you just need 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 to add up the areas of all six sides. Four of the sides have an area of 15, which sums 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 to 60. The two end sides have an area of 9, which sums to 18. Add these together and 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 you get (C). 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 20. B Begin by determining the median and the mode. The mode is simply the number that 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 occurs the most times in the set. That is clearly 7. The median is the number that is in 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 the middle if you line them up from least to greatest. The two middle numbers are 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 7, so halfway between them is still just 7. The median minus the mode then is 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 7 2 7 5 0. 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 21. B Look to the number chart to find this one. The ratio we are looking for is criminal/ 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 civil. Remember that you are looking for the quarter that has the greatest ratio and not 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 the quarter with the largest numbers. Look for numbers whose difference is great, and 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 then compare. The 2nd quarter in 1970 is the answer, choice (B). 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 22.

E You can find the area of the circle since you know the radius (A 5 pr2 5 16p). If you 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 find the area of the two squares then you can subtract from the area of the circle to 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 find the area of the shaded region. The diagonal of each square is the radius of the 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 circle, so this number is 4. From this you can deduce that the sides of the square are 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2=2. Thus the area of each square is 8. Incidentally, you know that the squares are 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 congruent because the length of their diagonal is the same.

C Reread the second paragraph (or at least skim it) and consider its relation to the rest 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 of the passage. Then, proceed to the question. Notice that the second paragraph 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 contains two contrasting examples.

C Go and read the relevant text and be careful to have in mind what Burke’s view is, 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 which is that the Revolution produced a result that was a radical departure from the 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 past. On this view the phrase historical novelty clearly implies the newness and 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 uniqueness of the French Republic. Choice (C) fits this well.

That should make you wary of that choice. Choice (D) is the view of de 2 1 3456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456789012345678901212345 6 Tocqueville, not Burke.
