----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- - Q13: Lyme disease is caused by a bacterium transmitted to humans by deer ticks. Generally deer ticks pick up the bacterium while in the larval stage from feeding on infected white- footed mice. However, certain other species on which the larvae feed do not harbor the bacterium. Therefore, if the population of these other species were increased, the number of ticks acquiring the bacterium―and hence the number of people contracting Lyme disease—would likely decline. Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument? A. Ticks do not suffer any adverse consequences from carrying the bacterium that causes Lyme disease in humans. B. There are no known cases of a human’s contracting Lyme disease through contact with white-footed mice. C. A deer tick feeds only once while in the larval stage. D. A single host animal can be the source of bacteria for many tick larvae. E. None of the other species on which deer tick larvae feed harbor other bacteria that ticks transmit to humans. Answer: 7

Now the Peruvian government is installing a cable car that will make access much easier, and hence result in a large increase in tourism. However, since the presence of large numbers of tourists tends to accelerate the deterioration of a site, installation of the cable car is certain to result in harm to the ruins. Which of the following, if true, most seriously calls into question the argument?

    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.
