    A. "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." B. "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." C. "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 . . ." D. "One should admit at the outset to a certain bias. Indeed I am a 'butterfly chaser, googly eyed bleeding heart and wild conservative.' "

    Which of the following is an example of the author's use of ethos in "The Damnation of a Canyon"? A. "It is often stated that the dam and its reservoir have opened up to the many what was formally restricted to the few, implying in this case that what was once expensive has now been made cheap." B. "The utter barrenness of the reservoir shoreline recalls by contrast the aspect of things before the dam, when Glen Canyon formed the course of the untamed Colorado." C. "If Rainbow Bridge is worth seeing at all, then by God it should be easily, readily, immediately available to everybody with the money to buy a big powerboat." D. "I have had the unique opportunity to observe first hand some of the differences between the environment of a free river and a power-plant reservoir."
