Pick the best answer. (7 points each) If you answer more than five, I will grade the first five you’ve answered unless you clearly indicate otherwise. Clearly indicate your choice. Vagueness will result in no credit. <The multiple choice questions in this section on the exam will be similar to the examples on the sample exam and similar to the questions on the required quizzes in D2L. There is no question bank. You will just know the material and pick the best answer to the five questions you choose to answer. Knowing the material well enough to recognize correct answers when you see them is the point.> Medium Answer : Choose any three of the following six questions. (These six questions are given over two pages.) Answer fully with the relevant, cogent content that would be the equivalent of about five to eight sentences. (15 points each) If you answer more than three, I will grade the first three you’ve done unless you clearly indicate otherwise. Answer all sub-questions in a question. <I will cut and paste six of these questions directly from this medium answer question list to the exam, you choose three to answer. Minor changes for better wording may occur, but usually they are unchanged from the study guide. If you can answer these questions, you will be able to answer the few from these questions that appears on the exam. Do not make the mistake of only studying a few of these questions, you may end up not studying the ones that appear on your exam.> 1) According to Aristotle, pleasure friends last longer if they get the same benefit from the same source. Explain what this means and give an example. Further, explain why and what is meant by "friendship is a character state, not a feeling" according to Aristotle? Do you agree? Why or why not?

It means they gain the same pleasure, utility, or both from the same activity, and it lasts longer this way because there is less conflict. An example could be two friends living together to save money and have fun together. It’s a character state because only virtuous people can be good friends with other virtuous people. I do agree, because if you can’t trust a person or they do things that are unethical, they are not going to make a good friend. 2) List three reasons why what is pleasant changes according to Aristotle.
