Questions 5-8 are based on the following passage.

Although the schooling of fish is a familiar form of animal social behavior, how the school is formed and maintained is only beginning to be understood in detail. It had been thought that each fish maintains its position chiefly by means of vision. Our work has shown that, as each fish maintains its position, the lateral line, an organ sensitive to transitory changes in water displacement, is as important as vision. In each species a fish has a “preferred” distance and angle from its nearest neighbor. The ideal separation and bearing, however, are not maintained rigidly. The result is a probabilistic arrangement that appears like a random aggregation. The tendency of the fish to remain at the preferred distance and angle, however, serves to maintain the structure. Each fish, having established its position, uses its eyes and its lateral lines simultaneously to measure the speed of all the other fish in the school. It then adjusts its own speed to match a weighted average that emphasizes the contribution of nearby fish.

According to the passage, the structure of a fish school is dependent upon which of the following?

rigidly formed random aggregations
the tendency of each fish to remain at a preferred distance from neighboring fish
measurements of a weighted average by individual fish
both B & C

The word “its” in the passage refers to the

school of fish
fish
organs
structure

The author of the passage believes that the structure of fish schools is maintained through

vision only
lateral lines only
the eyes and lateral lines simultaneously
an organ not yet discovered

The passage suggests that, after establishing its position in the school formation, an individual fish will subsequently

maintain its preferred position primarily by visual and auditory means
make continuous sensory readjustments to its position within the school
make unexpected shifts in position only if threatened by external danger
surrender its ability to make quick, instinctive judgments
ANALYTICAL REASONING

The football coach at Government College, Faisalabad noticed that some of his players were frequently late to morning football practices and seemed somewhat lethargic after they did arrive. He directed his assistant coach to look into the matter. The assistant coach reported back that most of the late and less active players belonged to fraternities on campus which were renowned for their frequent and late-night parties. The head coach then prohibited all of his football players from being members of fraternities. He reported that this would ensure that his players would get to practice on time and that they would have more productive practice sessions.

The head coach’s reasoning is not sound because he fails to establish which one of the following?

He fails to establish a system to monitor his players’ fraternity membership and to impose penalties for those who do not follow his new rule.
He fails to establish that his players are physically big and strong enough to be successful football players.
He fails to establish that his new policy will ensure that at least some of his football players will go to bed at a more reasonable hour.
He fails to establish that his best football players did not belong to fraternities anyway.
He fails to establish that the success of them fraternity system will not suffer if the football players are precluded from becoming members.

At the turn of the twentieth century, people’s attitudes toward money were far more conservative than they are today. Borrowing and being in debt were viewed as a moral failing, almost as a disgrace. Thrift and saving were highly prized, and people who needed to borrow to make ends meet were seen as careless, unreliable, or extravagant. The focus in the economy as a whole was on developing large corporations like railroads, oil companies, and other companies that produced basic goods and services.
Then, in the 1920s, the economy changed. A huge network of banks and financial institutions developed, helping money to move more quickly and easily through the economy. At the same time, the economy was increasing its focus on consumer goods— clothing, cars, household appliances, and other things that individuals buy. To help promote the sale of these items, consumers were encouraged to buy on credit. If they could not afford an item right away, a store or a bank might lend them the money, which they could pay back in installments.
With the development of consumer credit and installment purchases, people’s attitudes toward debt and spending changed. The model citizen was no longer someone who was thrifty, buying only what he or she needed. People were respected less for being thrifty than for knowing how to use their money to buy as many things as possible— an attitude that persists at the turn of the twenty-first century.

According to the passage, which of the following is NOT a belief that was commonly held in the early twentieth century?

Owing someone money is a moral failing.
People who save their money are respectable.
People who buy as many things as possible are respectable.
People who borrow money for necessities are careless and unreliable.

What helped money move more quickly through the economy in the 1920s?

The growth of railroads
The growth of banks and financial institutions
The rate at which people paid back their loans
The increase in installment purchases

The author mentions cars as an example of

A consumer good
A household appliance
An extravagant purchase
A new invention

According to the passage, how did the rise of consumer credit change people’s attitudes toward debt and spending?

Attitudes toward debt and spending became more conservative.
People used credit to buy only what they needed.
Extravagant borrowing and spending became highly prized.
Spending wisely became more respectable than being thrifty.
