Freud’s theories of the workings of the mind, while brilliant for their day, were formulated before most of this century’s great advances in neurophysiology and biochemistry. Today, we have a far deeper understanding of the biological components of thought, emotion, and behavior than was dreamed of eighty years ago. It would be foolish to continue parroting Freud’s psychological theories as if these advances had never occurred. It can be inferred from the passage above that the author would be most likely to favor (A) the abandonment of most of Freud’s theories (B) a greater reliance on biological rather than psychological explanations of behavior (C) a critical reexamination of Freud’s place in the history of psychology (D) a reexamination of Freud’s theories in the light of contemporary biology (E) increased financial support for studies in neurophysiology and biochemistry 3. To avoid a hostile takeover attempt, the board of directors of Wellco, Inc., a provider of life and health insurance, planned to take out large loans and use them to purchase a publishing company, a chocolate factory, and a nationwide chain of movie theaters. The directors anticipated that these purchase initially would plunge the corporation deep into debt, rendering it unattractive to those who wanted to take it over, but that steadily rising insurance rates would allow the company to pay off the debt within five years. Meanwhile, revenues from the three new businesses would enable the corporation as a whole to continue to meet its increased operating expenses. Ultimately, according o the directors’ plan, the diversification would strengthen the corporation by varying the sources and schedules of its annual revenues. Which of the following, assuming that all are equally possible, would most enhance the chances of the plan’s success? (A) A widespread drought decreases the availability of cacao beans, from which chocolate is manufacture, diving up chocolate prices worldwide. (B) New government regulations require a 30 percent across-the-board rate rollback of all insurance companies, to begin immediately and to be completed within a five-year period. (C) Congress enacts a statute, effective after six months, making it illegal for any parent not to carry health insurance coverage for his or her child. (D) Large-screen televisions drop dramatically in price due to surprise alterations in trade barriers with Japan; movie theater attendance dwindles as a consequence. (E) A new, inexpensive process is discovered for making paper pulp, and paper prices fall to 60 percent of their former level.
