1. The word others in the passage refers to ○Chambers ○Paintings ○Beasts ○Parades 2. The word Methods in the passage is closest in meaning to ○Ways ○Shades ○Stages ○Rules 3. What are the bones found in the Lascaux caves believed to indicate? ○Wild animals sometimes lived in the cave chambers. ○Artists painted pictures on both walls and bones. ○Artists ground them into a fine powder to make paint. ○Artists developed special techniques for painting the walls. Paragraph 2 在 One of the most puzzling aspects of the paintings is their location. Other rock paintings—for example, those of Bushmen in South Africa—are either located near cave entrances or completely in the open. Cave paintings in France and Spain, however, are in recesses and caverns far removed from original cave entrances. This means that artists were forced to work in cramped spaces and without sources of natural light. It also implies that whoever made them did not want them to be easily found. Since cave dwellers normally lived close to entrances, there must have been some reason why so many generations of Lascaux cave dwellers hid their art.
4. Why does the author mention Bushmen in South Africa in paragraph 2? ○To suggest that ancient artists from all over the world painted animals on rocks ○To contrast the location of their rock paintings to those found at Lascaux ○To support the claim that early artists worked in cramped spaces 140

What can be inferred from paragraph 2 about cave painters in France and Spain? ○They also painted rocks outside caves. ○They did not live close to the cave entrances. ○They developed their own sources of light to use while painting. ○Their painting practices did not last for many years. Paragraph 3 在 Scholars offer three related but different opinions about the mysterious origin and significance of these paintings. One opinion is that the paintings were a record of seasonal migrations made by herds. Because some paintings were made directly over others, obliterating them, it is probable that a painting’s value ended with the migration it pictured. Unfortunately, this explanation fails to explain the hidden locations, unless the migrations were celebrated with secret ceremonies. 6. Why does the author mention secret ceremonies? ○To present a common opinion held by many scholars ○To suggest a similarity between two opinions held by scholars ○To suggest a possible explanation for a weakness in an opinion expressed in the passage ○To give evidence that contradicts a major opinion expressed in the passage Paragraph 4 Another opinion is that the paintings were directly related to hunting and were an essential part of a special prepara...
