Q2.
In two months, the legal minimum wage in the country of Kirlandia will increase from five Kirlandic dollars(KD5.00) Per hour to KD5.50 per hour. Opponents of this increase have argued that the resulting rise in wages will drive the inflation rate up. In fact its impact on wages will probably be negligible, since only a very small proportion of all Kirfandic workers are currently receiving less than KD5.50 per hour.
Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument?
A. Most people in kirlandia who are currently earning the minimum wage have been employed at their current jobs for less than a year.
B. Some firms in Kirlandia have paid workers considerably less than KD5.00 per hour, in violation of kirlandic employment regulations.
C. Many businesses hire trainees at or near the minimum wage but must
reward trained workers by keeping their paylevels above the pay level
of trainees.
D. The greatest growth in Kirlandia’s economy in recent years has been in
those sectors where workers earn wages that tend to be much higher
than the minimum wage.
E The current minimum wage is insufficient for a worker holding only one job to earn enough to support a family ,even when working full time at that job.

Q11.
which of the following most logically completes the passage?
On the whole, scientists do their most creative work before age forty, a
tendency that has been taken to show that aging carries with it a loss of
creative capacity. An alternative explanation is that by age forty most
scientists have worked in their field for fifteen or more years and that by
then they have exhausted the opportunity for creative work in that field.
Supporting this explanation is the finding that
A. the average age of recipients of scientific research grants is significantly
greater than forty.
B. a disproportionately large number of the scientists who produce
highly creative work beyond age forty entered their field at an
older age than is common.
C. many scientists temper their own expectations of what they can
achieve in their research work by their belief that their creativity.
will decline as they age.
D. scientists who are older than forty tend to find more satisfaction in
other activities, such as teaching and mentoring, than they do in
pursuing their own research.
E. there is a similar diminution of creativity with age in nonscientific
fields, such as poetry and musical composition.
