unanswered; indeed, taking all the evi- dence into account, one cannot make a definitive statement about dinosaur physiology on the basis of dinosaur bone. It may be that dinosaurs had an (65) intermediate pattern of bone structure because their physiology was neither typically reptilian, mammalian, nor avian. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q33: The author of the passage would be most likely to agree that the “caution” (line 29) urged by de Ricqlès regarding claims about dinosaur physiology was A. unjustified by the evidence available to de Ricqlès B. unnecessary, given the work done by Bakker and his followers C. indicative of the prevailing scientific opinion at the time D. warranted, given certain subsequent findings of other scientists E. influential in the recent work of Chinsamy Answer: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 18

Q34: The primary purpose of the passage is to A. discuss the influence on other scientists of Bakker’s argument concerning the warm-bloodedness of dinosaurs B. provide evidence that supports the claim that dinosaurs were cold-blooded C. challenge the contention that dinosaur bone tissue is innately fibro-lamellar D. evaluate the claim that dinosaur bone tissue provides evidence for the warm- bloodedness of dinosaurs E. resolve the disagreement between de Ricqlès and Bakker over the nature of dinosaur physiology Answer: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q35: According to the passage, the discovery of growth rings in the bones of certain dinosaurs served to undermine which of the following claims? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q36: The author of the passage mentions bone growth patterns in juvenile crocodiles most likely in order to ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Q37: Researchers took a group of teenagers who had never smoked and for one year tracked whether they took up smoking and how their mental health changed. Those who began smoking within a month of the study’s start were four times as likely to be depressed at the study’s end than those who did not begin smoking. Since nicotine in cigarettes changes brain chemistry, perhaps thereby affecting mood, it is likely that smoking contributes to depression in teenagers. 19

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
