    A. "I have had the unique opportunity to observe firsthand some of the differences between the environment of a free river and a power-plant reservoir." B. "Many of the side canyons above the fluctuating waterline are now rendered more difficult, not easier, to get into. This is because the debris brought down into them by desert storms, no longer carried away by the river, must unavoidably build up . . ." C. "One should admit at the outset to a certain bias. Indeed I am a 'butterfly chaser, googly eyed bleeding heart and wild conservative.' " D. "Anyone who has tried to pilot a motorboat through a raft of half-sunken logs and bloated dead cows will have his own thoughts on the accessibility of these waters."

    Question 8 of 10 Multiple Choice: Please select the best answer and click "submit." Read the following passage: It is quite true that the flooding of Glen Canyon has opened up to the motorboat explorer parts of side canyons that formerly could be reached only by people able to walk. But the sum total of terrain visible to the eye and touchable by hand and foot has been greatly diminished, not increased. Because of the dam the river is gone, the inner canyon is gone, the best parts of the numerous side canyons are gone all hidden beneath hundreds of feet of polluted water, accumulating silt, and mounting tons of trash. This portion of Glen Canyon and who can estimate how many cubic miles were lost is no longer accessible to anybody. (Except scuba divers.) And this, do not forget, was the most valuable part of Glen Canyon, richest in scenery, archaeology, history, flora and fauna. Edward Abbey, "The Damnation of a Canyon" What is the author's bias in this passage from "The Damnation of a Canyon"? A. He believes more motorboats should be allowed on Lake Powell. B. He believes the environment should be left in its natural state. C. He believes in the industrialization of historical lands. D. He believes all people should be able to access archaeological sites.

    Question 9 of 10 Multiple Choice: Please select the best answer and click "submit." Read the following passage: Beaver were common if not abundant: not an evening would pass, in drifting down the river, that we did not see them or at least hear the whack of their flat tails on the water. Above the river shores were the great recessed alcoves where water seeped from the sandstone, nourishing the semitropical hanging gardens of orchid, ivy and columbine, with their associated swarms of insects and bird life. Edward Abbey, "The Damnation of a Canyon" Which word has the most positive connotation? A. "nourishing" B. "common" C. "recessed" D. "hanging"

    1. The reason you cannot open more than one question at a time is because you are not supposed to ask more than one question at a time 2. Another reason you should not accept an answer without an explanation is because there is a chance of the given answer for being incorrect.

    Well you may use educational websites to help an asker if you cite it; just can't give out straight letter answers like that.
