    The next question refers to This Mystery Rocks! by Cynthia Schlagel. The sentences have been numbered to help you identify them more easily. This Mystery Rocks! By Cyntha Schlagel 1The Drifting Rocks are a strange phenomenon still unexplained by science. 2Located in Death Valley, California, the rocks sit on hot, flat ground. 3Unlike normal rocks, they have trails etched behind them as if they have traveled across the sand. 4Some trails are only a few feet. 5Some trails are over a half a mile long. 6Each trail is as baffling as the next. 7The variety of rock movement has baffled scientists for decades. 8Some rocks seem to roll as they move forward. 9Some take unexplainable routes. 10Large ones have traveled past small ones that have stayed still. 11Some scientists suggest that the rocks are pushed by wind. 12Others believe they slide on small amounts of ice or mud. 13So far, research has not confirmed any theory. Which choice best describes how the author organized information? Cause and effect Chronological order Fact by fact Problem-solution

    This seems to be a simple essay about rocks, with no chronological order.

    Well I can't tell you the answer. That wouldn't teach you anything. So far after what I've told you, what do you think it is?

Read the following sentence from This Mystery Rocks!: Unlike normal rocks, they have trails etched behind them as if they have traveled across the sand. How does the sentence contribute to the main idea of paragraph one? It reveals why the drifting rocks are strange. It explains where the rocks may be found. It identifies the persons who are named on the rocks. It offers a solution for why the rocks move.

    They state in the first paragraph that the rocks are weird and how they are weird. Which answer do you think is the closest to this?

    The next question refers to Shedding Light on a Dark Day, by Robin Meriwether. The paragraphs have been numbered to help you identify them more easily. Shedding Light on a Dark Day, by Robin Meriwether On May 19, 1780, the skies over New England turned dark in the middle of the day. For more than two hundred years, New England's Dark Day had been shrouded in mystery. Some blamed volcanoes. Some suggested supernatural events. Some claimed it was a sign from the heavens. No one knew for certain what happened. Many thought the mystery would never be solved. Researchers at the University of Missouri were fascinated by the case. They began examining trees in all surrounding areas. Fire damage in a Canadian forest finally revealed the truth. Scientists looked at burned tree rings and discovered that huge wildfires once raged in the mountains near Ontario. The savage flames created blankets of black smoke. The smoke traveled high into the atmosphere, darkening the New England skies hundreds of miles away. A student attempting to identify the main idea of paragraph two wrote the following sentence: When researchers at the University of Missouri began examining trees in surrounding areas, fire damage in a Canadian forest revealed that huge wildfires in the mountains near Ontario darkened the New England skies hundreds of miles away. Which sentence best describes the student's sentence? The student's sentence does not include enough information from the paragraph. The student's sentence leaves out too many important details from the paragraph. The student's sentence perfectly and properly captures the main idea of the paragraph. The student's sentence shows the main idea but does not paraphrase the author's words.
