Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument in the advertisement? A. The average pay for jobs created in the city during the past three years was higher than the average pay for jobs created in the city earlier in Mayor Delmont’s tenure. B.

The average pay for jobs eliminated in the city during Mayor Delmont’s tenure has been roughly equal every year to the average pay for jobs citywide. E. The average pay for jobs in the city is currently higher than it is for jobs in the suburbs surrounding the city. Answer: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Q15: Capuchin monkeys often rub their bodies with a certain type of millipede. Laboratory tests show that secretions from the bodies of these millipedes are rich in two chemicals that are potent mosquito repellents, and mosquitoes carry parasites that debilitate capuchins. Some scientists hypothesize that the monkeys rub their bodies with the millipedes because doing so helps protect them from mosquitoes. Which of the following, if true, provides the most support for the scientists’ hypothesis? A. A single millipede often gets passed around among several capuchins, all of whom rub their bodies with it. B. The two chemicals that repel mosquitoes also repel several other varieties of insects. C. The capuchins rarely rub their bodies with the millipedes except during the rainy season, when mosquito populations are at their peak. D. Although the capuchins eat several species of insects, they do not eat the type of millipede they use to rub their bodies. 20 E. The two insect-repelling chemicals in the secretions of the millipedes are carcinogenic for humans but do not appear to be carcinogenic for capuchins. Answer: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Q16: Historian: Newton developed mathematical concepts and techniques that are fundamental to modern calculus. Leibniz developed closely analogous concepts and techniques. It has traditionally been thought that these discoveries were independent. Researchers have, however, recently discovered notes of Leibniz’ that discuss one of Newton’s books on mathematics. Several scholars have argued that since the book includes a presentation of Newton’s calculus concepts and techniques, and since the notes were written before Leibniz’ own development of calculus concepts and techniques , it is virtually certain that the traditional view is false. A more cautious conclusion than this is called for, however. Leibniz’ notes are limited to early sections of Newton’s book, sections that precede the ones in which Newton’s calculus concepts and techniques are presented....
