(2) Code your test number on your answer sheet (use lines 7680 on the answer sheet for the 5-digit number) . (3) This is a closed book exam and books, calculators or any other materials are NOT allowed during the exam. (4) Identify the number of the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question. (5) Blacken the circle of your intended answer completely, using a #2 pencil or blue or black ink. Do not make any stray marks or the answer sheet may not read properly. (6) Do all scratch work anywhere on this printout that you like. At the end of the test, this exam printout is to be turned in.
