Part I: Short-Answer Questions (50 points)
For the first half of the exam, you will be given a list of 8–12 questions and will be asked to
5 of those questions in 3–6 sentences.
These questions will be based on the list of terms
for each lesson. Be specific and concise, and directly answer each question you select. It is
always better to answer the question fully, but these are short answers, not essays.
