Q35:The passage suggests that the historian mentioned in the second paragraph (lines 5-9) would be most likely to agree with which of the following assertions regarding Alessandra Strozzi?
A. Alessandra was able to act more independently than most women of her time because she was a widow. EXTREME
B. Alessandra was aware that her personal motivation was embedded in a social context. Nobody talked about what Alessandra thought
C. Alessandra had goals and interests similar to those of many other widows in her society.No comparison with other widows
D. Alessandra is an example of a Renaissance woman who expressed her individuality through independent action. Exactly
E. Alessandra was exceptional because she was able to effect changes in the social constraints placed upon women in her society.EXTREME

Q36:It can be inferred that the author of the passage believes which of the following about the study of Alessandra Strozzi done by the historian mentioned in the second paragraph (lines 5-9)?
A. Alessandra was atypical of her time and was therefore an inappropriate choice for the subject of the historian’s research.
B. In order to bolster her thesis, the historian adopted the anthropological perspective on personhood. Not in order to but his research proved what he assumed or contended
C. The historian argues that the boundaries of the conceptual self were not always firm and closed in Renaissance Europe. > Always remember that Inference is not stated directly in the passage but is logical & this choice is directly stated.
D. In her study, the historian reverts to a traditional approach that is out of step with the work of other historians of Renaissance Europe. No comparision made with the work of other historians.
E. The interpretation of Alessandra’s actions that the historian puts forward is not supported by much of the historian’s research. Bingo..!! First paragraph starting lines oppose the historian perspective and the approach or view is different


Q37:In the first paragraph, the author of the passage mentions a contention that would be made by an anthropologist most likely in order to
A. present a theory that will be undermined in the discussion of a historian’s study later in the passage
B. offer a perspective on the concept of personhood that can usefully be applied to the study of women in Renaissance Europe
C. undermine the view that the individuality of European women of the Renaissance was largely suppressed
D. argue that anthropologists have applied the Western concept of individualism in their research
E. lay the groundwork for the conclusion that Alessandra’s is a unique case among European women of the Renaissance whose lives have been studied by historians

Look for all the red words. All of them are of the track. The viewpoint is stated and dr's no argument and nothing is undermined
