Edward Abbey, "The Damnation of a Canyon" Which phrase has the most negative connotation? A. "utter barrenness" B. "untamed Colorado" C. "thickets of tamarisk" D. "flowing river"

    Which of the following is an example of ethos from "The Damnation of a Canyon"? A. "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 . . ." B. "In the rich flora of these laterals the larger mammals mule deer, coyote, bobcat, ring-tailed cat, gray fox, kit fox, skunk, badger and others found a home." C. "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." D. "Having thus seen Glen Canyon both before and after . . . its damnation, I feel that I am in a position to evaluate the transformation of the region caused by construction of the dam."

    Question 10 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 type of bias is the author displaying in the passage? A. That he believes in growing tourism B. That he believes in industrialization C. That he is pro-nature D. That he is against nature

    Question 5 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 type of bias is the author displaying in the passage? A. That he is against nature B. That he believes in industrialization C. That he is pro-nature D. That he believes in growing tourism

    C, the author is indeed pro-nature, hating the fact that mankind constructed the dam.

    Question 8 of 10 Multiple Choice: Please select the best answer and click "submit." Read the following excerpt: Up most of the side canyons, before damnation, there were springs, sometimes flowing streams, waterfalls and plunge pools the kind of marvels you can now find only in such small-scale remnants of Glen Canyon as the Escalante area. In the rich flora of these laterals the larger mammals mule deer, coyote, bobcat, ring-tailed cat, gray fox, kit fox, skunk, badger and others found a home. When the river was dammed almost all of these things were lost. Crowded out or drowned and buried under mud. Edward Abbey, "The Damnation of a Canyon" Which word has the most positive connotation? A. "buried" B. "marvels" C. "drowned" D. "remnants"

"Having thus seen Glen Canyon both before and after . . . its damnation, I feel that I am in a position to evaluate the transformation of the region caused by construction of the dam." B. "In the rich flora of these laterals the larger mammals mule deer, coyote, bobcat, ring-tailed cat, gray fox, kit fox, skunk, badger and others found a home." C. "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." D. "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 . . ."

    Which of the following is an example of the author's use of ethos in "The Damnation of a Canyon"? A. "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." 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. "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." D. "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."
