Secondhand smoke—breathing in other people’s tobacco smoke—has now been shown to cause lung cancer, heart disease, and many other illnesses in nonsmokers. Section 2 (2) (e) of the Health and Safety at Work Etc. Act 1974 places a duty on employers to provide a working environment for employees that is: safe, without risk to health, and adequate with regards to facilities and arrangements for their welfare at work. The Health Act 2006 requires workplaces to be smoke-free by the end of May 2007. Smoking rooms will no longer be allowed. The employer acknowledges that breathing other people’s tobacco smoke is both a public hazard and a welfare issue. Therefore the following policy has been adopted concerning smoking in this organization.
This smoking policy seeks to guarantee nonsmokers the right to work in air free of tobacco smoke, while taking account of the health needs of those who smoke. All premises will be designated smoke-free from this day forward. Smoking will only be permitted at designated smoking areas outside the buildings. Smoking while on duty will only be allowed during official break periods.

After her return to the prison, Hester Prynne was found to be in a state of nervous excitement that demanded constant watchfulness, lest she should perpetrate violence on herself, or do some half-frenzied mischief to the poor babe. As night approached, it proving impossible to quell her insubordination by rebuke or threats of punishment, Master Brackett, the jailer, thought fit to introduce a physician. He described him as a man of skill in all Christian modes of physical science, and likewise familiar with whatever the savage people could teach, in respect to medicinal herbs and roots that grew in the forest. To say the truth, there was much need of professional assistance, not merely for Hester herself, but still more urgently for the child; who, drawing its sustenance from the maternal bosom, seemed to have drank in with it all the turmoil, the anguish, and despair, which pervaded the mother’s system. It now writhed in convulsions of pain, and was a forcible type, in its little frame, of the moral agony which Hester Prynne had borne throughout the day.
Read the following sentence from the passage:
“To say the truth, there was much need of professional assistance, not merely for Hester herself, but still more urgently for the child; who, drawing its sustenance from the maternal bosom, seemed to have drank in with it all the turmoil, the anguish, and despair, which pervaded the mother’s system.”
The description of the baby’s illness enhances the story by:

Connecting an old-fashioned belief in evil to a modern-day understanding of what medicine can accomplish.
Explaining the medical condition of the baby was tied to the mother’s nervous state.

Which word is the subject of this sentence?
According to engineers, computers can give us an amazing amount of information about a car.
One dollar and eighty-seven cents. That was all. And sixty cents of it was in pennies. Pennies saved one and two at a time by bulldozing the grocer and the vegetable man and the butcher until one’s cheeks burned with the silent imputation of parsimony that such close dealing implied. Three times Della counted it. One dollar and eighty-seven cents. And the next day would be Christmas. There was clearly nothing left to do but flop down on the shabby little couch and howl. So Della did it. Which instigates the moral reflection that life is made up of sobs, sniffles, and smiles, with sniffles predominating. While the mistress of the home is gradually subsiding from the first stage to the second, take a look at the home. A furnished flat at $8 per week. It did not exactly beggar description, but it certainly had that word on the look-out for the mendicancy squad. Della finished her cry and attended to her cheeks with the powder rag. She stood by the window and looked out dully at a grey cat walking a grey fence in a grey backyard. Tomorrow would be Christmas Day, and she had only $1.87 with which to buy Jim a present. She had been saving every penny she could for months, with this result. Twenty dollars a week doesn’t go far. Expenses had been greater than she had calculated. They always are. Only $1.87 to buy a present for Jim. Her Jim. Many a happy hour she had spent planning for something nice for him. Something fine and rare and sterling— something just a little bit near to being worthy of the honor of being owned by Jim …. Suddenly she whirled from the window and stood before the glass. Her eyes were shining brilliantly, but her face had lost its color within twenty seconds. Rapidly she pulled down her hair and let it fall to its full length. Now, there were two possessions of the James Dillingham Youngs in which they both took a mighty pride. One was Jim’s gold watch that had been his father’s and his grandfather’s. The other was Della’s hair. Had the Queen of Sheba lived in the flat across the airshaft, Della would have let her hair hang out of the window someday to dry just to depreciate Her Majesty’s jewels and gifts. Had King Solomon been the janitor, with all his treasures piled up in the basement, Jim would have pulled out his watch every time he passed, just to see him pluck at his beard from envy. So now Della’s beautiful hair fell about her, rippling and shining like a cascade of brown waters. It reached below her knee and made itself almost a garment for her. And then she did it up again nervously and quickly. Once she faltered for a minute and stood still while a tear or two splashed on the worn red carpet. On went her old brown jacket; on went her old brown hat. With a whirl of skirts and with the brilliant sparkle still in her eyes, she cluttered out of the door and down the stairs to the street. Where she stopped the sign read: “Mme Sofronie. Hair Goods of All Kinds.” Della ran up the steps to the shop and collected herself, panting. “Will you buy my hair?” asked Della.
You can tell that Della and Jim’s relationship is:
(B)Good when they give each other presents
(D)One of protagonist and antagonist
(A)Caring and loving
Fill in the blank with either accept or except.

both words are correct
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
The poem is written through the voice of:
(A)The poet, John McCrae
(C)Colonel McCrae’s staff
(B)The dead soldiers

I. ADA BASICS
What is the ADA?
The ADA is a federal civil rights law that was passed in 1990 and went into effect beginning in 1992. Its purpose is to protect people with disabilities from discrimination in employment, in the programs and activities offered by state and local governments, and in accessing the goods and services offered in places like stores, hotels, restaurants, football stadiums, doctors’ offices, beauty parlors, and so on. The focus of this guide is Title I of the ADA, which prohibits discrimination in employment and requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities. Who must comply with Title I of the ADA? Only “covered entities” must comply with Title I of the ADA. The term “covered entities” includes employers with 15 or more employees, employment agencies, labor organizations, and joint labor-management committees. For simplicity, this guide will refer to covered entities as “employers.” For more information about covered entities, see www.eeoc.gov/policy/docs/threshold .html#2-III-B. Who is protected by Title I of the ADA? Title I protects “qualified employees with disabilities.” The term “qualified” means that the individual satisfies the skill, experience, education, and other job-related requirements of the position sought or held, and can perform the essential job functions of the position, with or without reasonable accommodations. For additional information about the definition of qualified, see http://askjan.org/links/ ADAtam1.html#II. The term “employee” means “an individual employed by an employer.” The question of whether an employer-employee relationship exists is fact-specific and depends on whether the employer controls the means and manner of the worker’s work performance.
Read this sentence from the second complete paragraph:
The term “covered entities” includes employers with 15 or more employees, employment agencies, labor organizations, and joint labor-management committees.
What can be inferred about covered entities from this sentence?
Businesses with 14 or fewer employees do not have to follow the ADA.
“Covered entities” are considered to be any kind of business, no matter how many employees work there.
Businesses with 14 or fewer employees are not considered “covered entities” under the ADA.
All “covered entities” are also businesses.

(1) Believe it or not, it is more than possible to make a film in 48 hours. You won't get a feature-length blockbuster for your efforts, but you will get a short film of around 5 minutes and a lot of memories because it's such a unique experience. This how-to guide serves as a rough introduction to making a 48-hour film. (2) The first thing you probably kneed to do is to go to the store and buy some caffeine because you won't be getting much sleep. Before you begin, it is important to evaluate your assets. (3) See what you have, available to you in terms of locations, equipment, crew, and cast. Successful films don't always require fancy sets, exotic locations, or A-list actors; some of the most poignant films are those the audience can really connect with because they can relate to the characters and their struggles. You will need the technology necessary to film and record both the audio and visual and the programs to edit and compile everything into a completed masterpiece. Many of these programs can be found online and are free or low-cost. B:
(4) Once the clock has started ticking, the first thing to do is to create a story. Keep in mind the assets you have axes to. (5) You should then right a screenplay and a shot plan—examples of these can be easily found online. When all is set, it's time to shoot your film. (6) You don't need anything overly advanced to begin, although, it's probably recommended that you record your visual and audio content onto different devices. The audio portion of the shoot is just as, if not more important than the visual or picture portion. Most video cameras that amateur filmmakers have access to do not have sufficient audio recording capabilities. Environmental factors including wind and background noise can also affect audio quality. So, recording audio and visual on different devices allows you to set up the best environment for audio recordings to ensure it's clear and easy to understand. C:
(7) After filming, you have to get your footage onto the computer. How you go about doing this depends on the type of camera you have used. (8) Next is the editing process, which may take up the majority of your time. Unfortunately, it is very unlikely that your editing process will be less then 18 hours long. (9) One of the first tasks you may encounter in post production is to synchronize your sound clips with your visual ones. You then have to edit, which can be done in any program, ranging from free software to professional programs with monthly fees. (10) When you have finished, all you have to do is to render and export, and you got yourself a 48-hour film! Now it's time to set up your film's release and invite all of your friends and family to a viewing party!

Which of these quotations from the passage supports the idea that other bacteria besides Cyanobacteria can sense light?
“The ability of optical objects to distinguish fine detail is determined by ‘angular resolution.’ ” (paragraph 9)
“Previous studies have shown that they contain light-sensing molecules and that they can perceive and approach a light source, a process called phototaxis.” (paragraph 4)
"Synechocystis serves as a spherical lens but the team thinks that rod-shaped bacteria can also trap light and sense the direction it is coming from using refraction, acting like an optical fiber.” (paragraph 6)
“But the fact that they use their bodies as eyeballs, he said, though, is ‘pretty obvious with hindsight… we never thought of it until we saw it…’” (paragraph 1)
Since the early 1800s, Downin Park has provided our town with a place to enjoy nature with our family and friends. Many residents use the park for biking, hiking, picnicking, and sunbathing. But in the last few years, development of residential apartment blocks to the west of the park has led to the removal of many trees in that area. Downin Park no longer provides the deep shade it once did. We need to fix this! As a lifelong resident of this town, I’m disappointed that the Town Council has allowed development to occur so close to the park. We don’t have need for expensive apartment housing like that being constructed. Nevertheless, the developers and the Council could help by replacing the lost trees cut down to make way for the new apartment buildings. Trees should be planted on the other side of the park fence, and the sooner the better. It’s alarming to realize that it will still take decades for Downin Park to recover the shade it once offered, but that’s no reason to put off planting the trees. Even if the people of my generation are not here to see the trees at their full beauty, our children will be. Isn’t that the most generous act of all, to undertake work that we may not see the results of ourselves? I hope with all my heart that the Town Council and the developers will listen to reason and plant trees in Downin Park. Let’s save the park!
The author wrote and published this op-ed because:
(A)She wanted to see her name in the paper.
(B)She believes the new apartment developments are ugly and should not be built.
(D)She wants to draw attention to the need to plant more trees in Downin Park.
(C)She wants the people in her town to stop cutting down trees.
