Answers

22 – c. This idea is expressed in the final sentence and wraps up the passage, speaking of the importance of creating a balance. The other choices are not in the passage.

23 – c. The support for choice c is given in the second sentence. No support is given for choices a and d.

24 I – d. This choice encompasses the main information in the passage. Choices a, b, and c are not mentioned.

24 II. a. The title should express the main idea of the passage. The passage, as a whole, focuses on appropriate and inappropriate uses of e-mail. The other choices address more specific ideas expressed in the passage but are not its main idea.

25. c. The first and second sentences reflect this idea. The passage does not say that Native American art is dreamlike (choice a). Choices b and d are too limited to be main ideas.
