Questions Below Read Carefully 21 to 28:

Please read the selection below, then answer each question by choosing the best answer.

Over the past few years I’ve had an uncomfortable sense that someone, or something, has been tinkering with my brain, remapping the neural circuitry, reprogramming the memory. My mind isn’t going—so far as I can tell—but it’s changing. I’m not thinking the way I used to think. I can feel it most strongly when I’m reading.

Immersing myself in a book or a lengthy article used to be easy. My mind would get caught up in the narrative or the turns of the argument, and I’d spend hours strolling through long stretches of prose. That’s rarely the case anymore. Now my concentration often starts to drift after two or three pages. I get fidgety, lose the thread, begin looking for something else to do. I feel as if I’m always dragging my wayward brain back to the text. The deep reading that used to come naturally has become a struggle.

I think I know what’s going on. For more than a decade now, I’ve been spending a lot of time online, searching and surfing and sometimes adding to the great databases of the Internet. The Web has been a godsend to me as a writer. Research that once required days in the stacks or periodical rooms of libraries can now be done in minutes. A few Google searches, some quick clicks on hyperlinks, and I’ve got the telltale fact or pithy quote I was after. Even when I’m not working, I’m as likely as not to be foraging in the Web’s info-thickets’ reading and writing e-mails, scanning headlines and blog posts, watching videos and listening to podcasts, or just tripping from link to link to link. (Unlike footnotes, to which they’re sometimes likened, hyperlinks don’t merely point to related works; they propel you toward them.)

For me, as for others, the Net is becoming a universal medium, the conduit for most of the information that flows through my eyes and ears and into my mind. The advantages of having immediate access to such an incredibly rich store of information are many, and they’ve been widely described and duly applauded. “The perfect recall of silicon memory,” Wired’s Clive Thompson has written, “can be an enormous boon to thinking.”

But that boon comes at a price. As the media theorist Marshall McLuhan pointed out in the 1960s, media are not just passive channels of information. They supply the stuff of thought, but they also shape the process of thought. And what the Net seems to be doing is chipping away my capacity for concentration and contemplation. My mind now expects to take in information the way the Net distributes it: in a swiftly moving stream of particles. Once I was a scuba diver in the sea of words. Now I zip along the surface like a guy on a Jet Ski.

–Nicholas Carr, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?”

21. In the last paragraph, Carr asserts that the convenience of the internet comes with a price. By this he means:

Questions 40-45

Please read the passage below, and then answer the questions that follow.

Uncountable are the editorials in every American and European newspaper and magazine of note adding to this vocabulary of gigantism and apocalypse, each use of which is plainly designed to inflame the reader’s indignant passion as a member of the “west”, and what we need to do. Churchillian rhetoric is used inappropriately by self-appointed combatants in the west’s, and especially America’s, war against its haters, despoilers, destroyers, with scant attention to complex histories that defy such reductiveness and have seeped from one territory into another, overriding the boundaries that are supposed to separate us all into divided armed camps.

This is the problem with unedifying labels such as Islam and the west: they mislead and confuse the mind, which is trying to make sense of a disorderly reality that won’t be pigeon-holed. I remember interrupting a man who, after a lecture I had given at a West Bank university in 1994, rose from the audience and started to attack my ideas as “western”, as opposed to the strict Islamic ones he espoused. “Why are you wearing a suit and tie?” was the first retort that came to mind. “They’re western, too.” He sat down with an embarrassed smile on his face, but I recalled the incident when information on the 11 September terrorists started to come in: how they had mastered all the technical details required to inflict their homicidal evil on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the aircraft they had commandeered. Where does one draw the line between “western” technology and, as Berloscuni declared, “Islam’s” inability to be a part of “modernity”?

–Edward Said, “We All Swim Together”

40. The main purpose of this selection is

A. To make fun of the west.

B. To praise the technical skill of the terrorists.

C. To question conventional labels and identity categories.

D. To criticize the media.

41. Which of the following claims is NOT part of Said’s argument:

A. Labels are not useful.

B. The claim that Islam cannot be part of modernity is false.

C. The histories of the ‘west’ and Islam are complexly intertwined.

D. Israel’s occupation of the West Bank is a bad thing.

42. By “pigeon-holed” in the second paragraph, Said means

A. Literally stuffed into a small space.

B. Thinking like a pigeon.

C. An inability to see beyond one’s own prejudices.

D. Narrowly categorized so as to be unhelpful.

43. According to Said, editorials in European and American magazine written about September 11th, 2001

A. Used language specifically designed to enrage western readers.

B. Argued for a measured approach to the terrorist attack.

C. Urged the west to set fire to the east.

D. Assessed complexly the relationships between Islam and western countries.

44. “Churchillian rhetoric” refers to

A. Bombastic pronouncements.

B. Inspirational public speaking.

C. Rhetoric full of abstract, archaic language.

D. Speaking with a stutter.

45. Said uses the example of the incident of the man at his lecture at a West Bank university to illustrate

A. His support for Palestinian rights.

B. How even Muslims wear western clothing.

C. How ‘east’ and ‘west’ are reductive categories.
