Unformatted text preview: Q1. p2-sc 46. (26958-!-item-!-188;#058&003387) Genetic engineering sometimes entails plant or animal genes' getting spliced into other species' DNA, either to improve crop yields or for warding off insects or disease. (A) plant or animal genes' getting spliced into other species' DNA, either to improve crop yields or for warding off (B) plant or animal genes that get spliced into the DNA of other species, either for improving crop yields or the warding off of (C) the splicing of plant or animal genes into other species' DNA, to either improve crop yields or to ward off (D) splicing plant or animal genes into the DNA of other species, either to improve crop yields or to ward off (E) splicing of plant or animal genes into the DNA of other species, for either the improvement of crop yields or to ward off Q2. p2-sc 47. (27004-!-item-!-188;#058&003398) Those skeptical of the extent of global warming argue that short-term temperature data are an inadequate means of predicting long-term trends and point out that the scientific community remains divided on whether significant warming will occur and what impact will it have if it does . (A) on whether significant warming will occur and what impact will it have if it does (B) on whether warming that occurs will be significant and the impact it would have (C) as to whether significant warming will occur or the impact it would have if it did (D) over whether there will be significant warming or the impact it will have (E) over whether significant warming will occur and what impact it would have Q3. p2-cr 38. (32291-!-item-!-188;#058&006866) Offshore oil-drilling operations entail an unavoidable risk of an oil spill, but importing oil on tankers presently entails an even greater such risk per barrel of oil. Therefore, if we are to reduce the risk of an oil spill without curtailing our use of oil, we must invest more in offshore operations and import less oil on tankers. Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument above? (A) Tankers can easily be redesigned so that their use entails less risk of an oil spill. (B) Oil spills caused by tankers have generally been more serious than those caused by offshore operations. (C) The impact of offshore operations on the environment can be controlled by careful management. (D) Offshore operations usually damage the ocean floor, but tankers rarely cause such damage. (E) Importing oil on tankers is currently less expensive than drilling for it offshore....
