Bermuda Triangle THE NEXT FOUR QUESTIONS ARE BASED ON THE FOLLOWING PASSAGE: The Bermuda Triangle The area known as the Bermuda Triangle has become such a part of popular culture that it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction. The interest first began when five Navy planes vanished in 1945, officially resulting from "causes or reasons unknown." The explanations about other accidents in the Triangle range from the scientific to the supernatural. Researchers have never been able to find anything truly mysterious about what happens in the Bermuda Triangle, if there even is a Bermuda Triangle. What is more, one of the biggest challenges in considering the phenomenon is deciding how much area actually represents the Bermuda Triangle. Most consider the Triangle to stretch from Miami out to Puerto Rico and to include the island of Bermuda. Others expand the area to include all of the Caribbean islands and to extend eastward as far as the Azores, which are closer to Europe than they are to North America. The problem with having a larger Bermuda Triangle is that it increases the odds of accidents. There is near-constant travel, by ship and by plane, across the Atlantic, and accidents are expected to occur. In fact, the Bermuda triangle happens to fall within one of the busiest navigational regions in the world, and the reality of greater activity creates the possibility for more to go wrong. Shipping records suggest that there is not a greater than average loss of vessels within the Bermuda Triangle, and many researchers have argued that the reputation of the Triangle makes any accidents seem out of the ordinary. In fact, most accidents fall within the expected margin of error. The Increase in ships from East Asia no doubt contributes to an increase in accidents. And as for the story of the Navy planes that disappeared within the Triangle, many researchers now conclude that it was the result of mistakes on the part of the pilots who were flying into storm clouds and simply got lost. Which of the following describes this type of writing? A. Narrative B. Persuasive C. Expository D. Technical - ✔✔C. Expository The passage is expository in the sense that it looks more closely into the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle and exposes information about what researchers have studied and now believe. 2. The Bermuda Triangle Which of the following sentences is most representative of a summary sentence for this passage? A. The problem with having a larger Bermuda Triangle is that it increases the odds of accidents. B. The area that is called the Bermuda Triangle happens to fall within one of the busiest navigational regions in the world, and the reality of greater activity creates the possibility for more to go wrong. C. One of the biggest challenges in considering the phenomenon is deciding how much area actually represents the Bermuda Triangle. D. Researchers have never been able to find anything truly mysterious about what happens in the Bermuda Triangle, if there even is a Bermuda Triangle. - ✔✔D. This sentence is the best summary statement for the entire passage, because it wraps up clearly what the author is saying about the results of studies on the Bermuda Triangle. s3. The Bermuda Triangle With which of the following statements would the author most likely agree? A. There is no real mystery about the Bermuda Triangle because most events have reasonable explanations. B. Researchers are wrong to expand the focus of the Triangle to the Azores, because this increases the likelihood of accidents. C. The official statement of "causes or reason unknown" in the loss of the Navy planes was a deliberate concealment from the Navy. D. Reducing the legends about the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle will help to reduce the number of reported accidents or shipping losses in the region. - ✔✔D. Of all the sentences provided, this is the one with which the author would most likely agree. The passage suggests that most of the "mysteries" of the Bermuda Triangle can be explained in a reasonable way. 4. The Bermuda Triangle Which of the following represents an opinion statements on the part of the author? A. The problem with having a larger Bermuda Triangle is that it increases the odds of accidents. B.

Eventually, his son King Charles II would be crowned, and this Charles is believed to have converted secretly to the Catholic Church. Charles II died without a legitimate heir, and his brother James ascended to the throne as King James II. James was recognized to be a practicing Catholic, and his commitment to Catholicism would prove to e his downfall. James's wife Mary Beatrice lost a number of children during their infancy, and when she became pregnant again in 1687 the public became concerned. If James had a son, that son would undoubtedly be raised a Catholic, and the English people would not stand for this. Mary gave birth to a son, but the story quickly circulated that the royal child had died and the child named James's heir was a foundling smuggled in. James, his wife, and his infant son were forced to flee; and James's Protestant daughter Mary was crowned the queen. In spite of a strong resemblance to the ing, the young James was generally rejected among the English and the Lowland Scots, who referred to him as "the Pretender." But in the Highlands the Catholic princeling was welcomed. He inspired a group known as Jacobites, to reflect the Latin version of his name. His own son Charles, known affectionately as Bonnie Price Charlie, would eventually raise an army and attempt to recapture what he believed to be his throne. The movement was soundly defeated at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, and England and Scotland have remained ostensibly Protestant ever since.

The movement was soundly defeated at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, and England and Scotland have remained ostensibly Protestant ever since. D. Scholars in the 21st century are far too hasty in dismissing the role of religion in political disputes, but religion undoubtedly played a role in the problems that faced England and Scotland. - ✔✔D. All other sentences in the passage offer some support or explanation. - Only the sentence in answer choice D indicates an unsupported opinion on the part of the author. 2.

The movement was soundly defeated at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, and England and Scotland have remained ostensibly Protestant ever since. Which of the following is a logical conclusion based on the information that is provided within the passage? A. Like Elizabeth I, Charles II never married and thus never had children. B. The English people were relieved each time that James II's wife Mary lost another child, as this printed the chance of a Catholic monarch. C. Charles I's beheading had less to do with religion than with other political problems that England was facing. D. Unlike his son and grandsons, King James I had no Catholic leaning and was a faithful follower of the Protestant church of England. - ✔✔C. The author actually says, "Charles's own political troubles extended beyond religion in this case, and he was beheaded in 1649." This would indicate that religion was less involved in this situation than in other situations. - There is not enough information to infer that Charles II never married; the passage only notes that he had no legitimate children. (In fact, he had more than ten illegitimate children by his mistresses.) - And while the chance of Catholic king frightened many in England, it is reaching beyond logical inference to assume that people were relieved when royal children died. - Finally, the author does not provide enough detail for the reader to assume that James I had no Catholic leanings. The author only says that James recognized the importance of committing to the Church of England. 3.
