5 Studies show that remarriage at any age is also a challenge leading to more frequent divorce. 6 Studies also show that people who wait until their late twenties or later to marry have the highest chances of success at marriage. ___ 8. Which sentence is not relevant support for the author’s argument that age at marriage is an important predictor of a marriage’s success? A . Sentence 2 C . Sentence 5 B . Sentence 3 D . Sentence 6 1 Kübler-Ross’s five stages of dying should not be overemphasized. 2 The recognition of those five stages is very important to an understanding of the dying process. 3 However, though the emotions that Kübler-Ross describes are common, not everyone goes through all five stages, and people may go through the stages in different sequences. 4 A person may go back and forth between stages—anger and depression, for example—or may feel both at once. 5 Instead of the orderly progression in Kübler-Ross’s theoretical model, dying people may show “a jumble of conflicting or alternating reactions running the gamut from denial to acceptance, with a tremen- dous variation affected by age, sex, race, ethnic group, social setting, and personality” (Butler & Lewis). 6 Unfortunately, some health professionals feel that they have failed if they cannot bring a patient to “the ultimate goal, the big number five —‘acceptance’ of death” (Leviton). ___ 9. Which sentence is not relevant support for the argument that Kübler-Ross’s five stages of dying should not be overemphasized? A . Sentence 2 C . Sentence 5 B . Sentence 4 D . Sentence 6 1 Genetic testing should be very limited. 2 Genetic information may be disseminated in a way that violates privacy. 3 Although medical data are supposed to be confidential, it is almost impossible to keep such information private. 4 A study at the University of Minnesota found that at least fifty people had access to each patient’s medical charts. 5 Secondly, a genetic profile may be used to deny a job, insurance, or other benefits. 6 In fact, discrimination on the basis of genetic information has already occurred. 7 An informal survey found fifty cases in which people had been denied jobs, insurance claims, and other benefits because of their genes. 8 In addition, it might be extremely anxiety-producing for a person to learn that she or he has the gene for an incurable disease. 9 What is the point of knowing you have a potentially debilitating condition when you cannot do anything about it, especially if the financial costs of testing are very high? 10 At the same time, determining a person’s genetic makeup may lead to early detection or prevention of a disorder. ___10.
