Took 6 mins 40 seconds , including 2 mins 40 seconds to read . All correct

1. The passage suggests that the United States government’s policy towards providing wage supplements to parents whose wages are low is
As a solution, they challenge the governent’s assumption that a family’s income should depend primarily on wages and urge the government to provide generous wage supplements
(child and housing allowances) to single parents whose wages are low.
B. based on assumptions about the appropriate sources of family income - Correct



2. Which of the following is most clearly an example of the policy advocated by the policy analysts mentioned in line 8 ?
But some policy analysts assert that, although comparable worth would virtually equalize male and female wages, many single parent families headed by women would remain in poverty because many men earn wages that are below the poverty line. These policy analysts believe that the problem is not caused primarily by wage inequity but rather by low wages coupled with single parent hood, regardless of sex.
E. A government provides large rent subsidies to single parents whose wages are less than half the average worker’s wage. - Correct


3.According to the passage, some economists believe that, in the United States, there would be smaller differences between the wages of women and men who do the same jobs if
This problem could result from the fact that women’s wages are only 60 percent of men’s. Some economists believe that rigorous enforcement of existing equal pay laws would substantially decrease this wage inequity.
A. equal pay laws were enforced more fully

The answer to Question 3 is option B, I think, because according to the passage more "rigorous enforcement of equal pay laws" means more stringent (of regulations, requirements, or conditions) strict, precise, and exacting.

Could you please clarify this?

A. equal pay laws were enforced more fully
B. more stringent equal pay laws were passed
C. a more rigorous comparable worth standard were developed and applied
D. more men entered the occupations in which women are concentrated
E. women received the same kind and amount of job training that men receive

We don't need to pass new laws to decrease this wage difference. We already have laws requiring that women and men doing the same jobs be paid the same. Thus, some economists believe that rigorous enforcement of EXISTING laws would substantially decrease this wage inequity. New laws are not needed.

I hope that helps!
