They went to the palm-frond bar and ordered a calabash of palm wine. They drank amidst the flies. Omovo watched them from the window as he waited for his father to go out. They both listened to the radio. His father had bought the old Grundig cheaply from a family that had to escape the city when the war broke out. He had covered the radio with a white cloth and made it look like a household fetish. They listened to the news of bombings and air raids in the interior of the country. His father combed his hair, parted it carefully, and slapped some after-shave on his unshaven face. Then he struggled into the shabby coat that he had long outgrown. Omovo stared out of the window, irritated with his father. At that hour, for the past seven days, a strange woman with a black veil over her head had been going past the house. She went up the village paths, crossed the Express road, and disappeared into the forest. Omovo waited for her to appear. According to the passage, what is the most likely reason Omovo is irritated with his father? (1 point) Incorrect Answer (0 pts) Omovo knows that his father plans to go drinking with the soldiers.

Used to being waited on hand and foot, Madame had yielded to her wifely duties, and clumsily fulfilled the role of mother. As for a real vacation, she had hardly had any. She soon persuaded her husband to return to Africa. On her return, grown thin and thoroughly exasperated, she had conceived a plan for her next vacation. She put want ads in all the newspapers. A hundred young girls answered. Her choice fell on Diouana, newly arrived from her native bush. Producing two more children during the three years that Diouana worked for her, between the last holiday and the one to come, Madame sang the praises of France. For three thousand francs a month, any young African girl would have followed her to the end of the earth. And to top it off, from time to time, especially lately, Madame would give Diouana little gifts of this and that, old clothes, shoes that could be mended. This was the insurmountable moat that separated the maid and her employer. According to the passage, what most likely divides the maid from her Madame? (1 point) Unselected answer (0 pts) Madame is resentful that Diouana is more capable in the household than she is. Incorrect Answer (0 pts) Diouana is a native from the bushland of Africa and does not know much about France.

Read this passage from "The Destructors." Blackie said uneasily, "It's proposed that tomorrow and Monday we destroy Old Misery's house." "Here, here," said a fat boy called Joe. "Who's in favour?" T said, "It's carried." "How do we start?" Summers asked. "He'll tell you," Blackie said. It was the end of his leadership. He went away to the back of the car-park and began to kick a stone, dribbling it this way and that. There was only one old Morris in the park, for few cars were left there except lorries: without an attendant there was no safety. He took a flying kick at the car and scraped a little paint off the rear mudguard. Beyond, paying no more attention to him than to a stranger, the gang had gathered round T; Blackie was dimly aware of the fickleness of favour. He thought of going home, of never returning, of letting them all discover the hollowness of T's leadership, but suppose after all what T proposed was possible—nothing like it had ever been done before. The fame of the Womsley Common car-park gang would surely reach around London. There would be headlines in the papers. Even the grown-up gangs who ran the betting at the all-in wrestling and the barrow-boys would hear with respect of how Old Misery's house had been destroyed. Driven by the pure, simple and altruistic ambition of fame for the gang, Blackie came back to where T stood in the shadow of Old Misery's wall. Blackie's main conflict is that he is (1 point) Unselected answer (0 pts) worried that the plan will take two days to carry out and that the gang might get caught in the act of destruction. Correct answer (1 pt) torn between his anger at the gang for following T and his own desire to join in the plan to destroy Old Misery's house. Unselected answer (0 pts) jealous that T so easily out maneuvered him into becoming the new leader of the Wormsley Common car-park gang. Unselected answer (0 pts) eager to be a part of a plan that could bring the gang so much fame but feels awkward because he is no longer the gang's leader. 1 /1 point 29. Read this sentence from "The Destructors." Driven by the pure, simple and altruistic ambition of fame for the gang, Blackie came back to where T stood in the shadow of Old Misery's wall. The word altruistic suggests that Blackie is (1 point) Unselected answer (1 pt) more concerned about the gang's reputation than his own. Unselected answer (0 pts) driven by curiosity to learn about what the gang is planning. Incorrect Answer (0 pts) worried about being left behind if the gang becomes famous. Unselected answer (0 pts) afraid of making T angry if he does not participate in the plan. 0 /1 point 30. Read the following passage from "First Confession" in which the main character has just entered the confessional. It must have been then that I noticed the shelf at about one height with my head. It was really a place for grown-up people to rest their elbows, but in my distracted state I thought it was probably the place you were supposed to kneel. Of course, it was on the high side and not very deep, but I was always good at climbing and managed to get up all right. Staying up was the trouble... "What are you doing up there?" he shouted in an angry voice, and the strain the politeness was putting on my hold of the molding, and the shock of being addressed in such an uncivil tone, were too much for me. I lost my grip, tumbled, hit the door an unmerciful allop before I found myself flat on my back in the middle of the aisle. The people who had been waiting stood with their mouths open. The priest opened the door of the middle box and came out, pushing his biretta back from his forehead; he looked something terrible. Which of the following stylistic elements is used by the writer to create humor in these lines? (1 point) Unselected answer (0 pts) hyperbole Correct answer (1 pt) incongruity Unselected answer (0 pts) irony Unselected answer (0 pts) sarcasm 1 /1 point The item below has been reviewed and is scheduled to be updated. All students will receive full credit for any response to the following. 31. Read the following passage from "Forbidden Fruit" in which the main character is watching his sister eat a pork sandwich, a meat that his religious beliefs dictate should not be eaten. I felt she was enjoying it. It was evident from the way she licked the crumbs, from the way she swallowed each bite—slowed her chewing in the silliest way as though listening to the sound the food made going down her gullet. The slices of fat were thinner at the edge she nibbled, the surest sign that she was enjoying it because all normal children leave the tidbit for last. In other words, all the evidence was there. Which of the following stylistic elements is used by the writer to create humor in these lines?
