    Perhaps you wanted pizza for dinner, but were out voted by the rest of the family who wanted chili. This is similar to what happens in a community. One person has to give up a right for the good of the group. Sometimes citizens' duties and rights conflict with each other. A good example is a public protest. People have the right to meet in groups and share ideas. However, a protest can disrupt traffic or other normal activities. A city must provide extra police protection to keep people safe. Therefore, the city has the right to require permission in advance for a protest. Government must make laws to balance the rights of individuals and different groups of people. What signal word or phrase indicates there is a comparison in this paragraph? Were outvoted by Is similar to With each Or other

    Read the following selection from "A Retrieved Reformation" and answer the question that follows: Pulling out from the wall a folding-bed, Jimmy slid back a panel in the wall and dragged out a dust-covered suit-case. He opened this and gazed fondly at the finest set of burglar's tools in the East... ...In half an hour Jimmy went down stairs and through the cafe. He was now dressed in tasteful and well-fitting clothes, and carried his dusted and cleaned suit-case in his hand. "Got anything on?" asked Mike Dolan, genially. "Me?" said Jimmy, in a puzzled tone. "I don't understand. I'm representing the New York Amalgamated Short Snap Biscuit Cracker and Frazzled Wheat Company." What does this selection suggest Jimmy's next step will be? He will become a shoe salesman. He will sell crackers to Mike. He will go into business with Mike. He will go back to his criminal ways. Question 2 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points) (MC) Read the following story excerpt and answer the question that follows: "Come on James!" Nick called him from the street. "Let's get to the court. The guys are waiting." James looked down at his list of assignments on the computer. "Nick, I can't go today," he yelled regretfully out his window. "I am behind on my work. You are, too! You should come over and we can study together." No response from Nick. James sighed and opened his website. A short time later he heard a loud knock at the door. It was Nick. "You were right. Let's finish up and then go shoot hoops." What does this dialogue reveal about James? James is a responsible person. James cares more about basketball than school. James is reckless about his schooling. James likes to study alone. Question 3 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points) (MC) In his conversation with the hotel clerk, Jimmy learns there is no shoe store in town. Why is owning one the perfect "fit" for Jimmy?

Question 4 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points) (MC) Read the following story excerpt and answer the question that follows: "Nope, I am not going to try out for the track team," Mayza told her friend. "Oh, why not? I am so sad, Mayza," Janie whined. "I thought we could be in this together. Please try out!" "I just don't have the time." Mayza responded sadly. "I am trying to keep my grades up. I need scholarships for college." Mayza looked up to see the track coach standing over her. "Mayza," she said, "I saw you at the practice run yesterday, and I was very impressed with your ability. I am hoping to see you at try-outs this afternoon. You know, there are scholarships available for winning students this year." Mayza looked up at her. "Coach," she said, I'll be there." Which line of dialogue impacted Mayza and changed the direction of the story? "Please try out!" "I am trying to keep my grades up." "You know, there are scholarships available for winning students this year." "I saw you at the practice run yesterday and I was very impressed with your ability."

One of the things we learn is that there is a button belonging to Ben Price on the floor. Why does O. Henry choose to include this detail? O.
