D. 1.08(99.95 + 5)x

(The correct answer is B)

________

The following is an excerpted version of a practice question for the Reading Test.

This passage is adapted from a speech delivered by Congresswoman Barbara Jordan of Texas on July 25, 1974, as a member of the Judiciary Committee of the United States House of Representatives. In the passage, Jordan discusses how and when a United States president may be impeached, or charged with serious offenses, while in office. Jordan’s speech was delivered in the context of impeachment hearings against then president Richard M. Nixon.

Today, I am an inquisitor. An hyperbole would not be fictional and

would not overstate the solemnness that I feel right now. My faith in

the Constitution is whole; it is complete; it is total. And I am not

going to sit here and be an idle spectator to the diminution, the

5 subversion, the destruction, of the Constitution .”

(.excerpted.)

Question 2 of 5:

The main rhetorical effect of the series of three phrases beginning in line 4 (“the diminution, the subversion, the destruction”) is to

A) convey with increasing intensity the seriousness of the threat Jordan sees to the Constitution.

B) clarify that Jordan believes the Constitution was first weakened, then sabotaged, then broken.

C) indicate that Jordan thinks the Constitution is prone to failure in three distinct ways.

D) propose a three-part agenda for rescuing the Constitution from the current crisis.

(The correct answer is A)

    score, simply because it’s new and they don’t quite know what to do with it yet. A lot of the more prestigious schools.for example), view all sections as equally important though, and no doubt.
