This question is based on the following information about The Call of the Wild, a book by Jack London. The Call of the Wild is a story about a dog named Buck. Buck is a pampered dog who lives with a wealthy family in southern California. During the Gold Rush, Buck is captured, sold, and eventually shipped to Alaska to work as a sled dog. Along the way, Buck is mistreated by a series of owners. Eventually he learns to survive as a member of a dog sled team. As a result, Buck soon realizes that in the Yukon of Alaska, “the law of club and fang” is stronger than the rules of civilized society. With each new experience, Buck becomes more acquainted with his primitive past. Finally, after losing the one person who treated Buck well, Buck decides to return to living in the wild. From the information above, which one of the following headlines would best represent the theme of Jack London’s story? A. Pampered Dog Moves to Alaska B. Dog Learns the Ropes of Sled Teams C. Dog Mistreated by Owners D. Dog’s Roots Call Him Back
In American society, romantic love is considered the main reason for people to marry. On the other hand, in some societies, romantic love is considered a form of obsession or madness. In fact, even in many societies where “true love” is not considered a form of insanity, arranged marriages are still the norm. For example, in many cultures it’s believed that marriage is basically an economic arrangement. Thus, a farmer needs a wife both to bear children and to share the farm work while raising new “hands” as additional farm labor. In other societies, marriage is mainly about cementing connections between families. Indeed, most marriages between members of European royal or aristocratic lineages were primarily aimed at creating trust, loyalty, and mutual obligations between privileged and powerful families. What is the main idea in this paragraph? A. True love is a sound basis for marriage. B. Marriage is usually a family affair. C. Different societies have different ideas about the purpose of marriage. D. Arranged marriages are more practical than those based on romantic love.
I was in the National Forest with my camera. The day was crisp, and the leaves were turning gold and red. When I spotted the white-tailed buck, I froze. He wasn’t more than 15 yards from where I was standing. The wind must have been right, because he kept on browsing the mossy ground. I lifted my camera very slowly. Carefully, holding my breath, I lifted the camera to my eye. Turning the focus ring, I framed the deer’s head. Just as I was ready to press the shutter release, the buck raised his head. He was looking my way with wide eyes. Click. I took the picture. An instant later, the deer bounded away into the forest. He took off, but I had the shot. Today, the framed photo of that buck hangs above our fireplace. What, specifically, does the writer imply by saying “the wind must have been right”? A. Deer usually run away when spotted. B. Deer are afraid of humans. C. He was lucky to have his camera with him. D. The deer didn’t pick up the writer’s scent.
