  • Q1
    Which sentence best explains the reason for Jelissa’s concern about the original project idea?
    I know everyone decided to write a song, but now that I’ve had time to think about it, I’m beginning to doubt the wisdom of that decision.
    We have a lot of talent in our group, but by creating only a song, we would be limiting ourselves.
    Writing a song would be fun—especially for Jevon, since he plays an instrument and sings.
    I think we should create a website instead.

  • Q3
    Which of the author’s arguments is based on faulty reasoning?
    If our school implements our composting idea, we could send less trash to the landfills.
    Composting has a surprising variety of benefits for the soil.
    If students see us composting at school, they will want to start a compost pile at home as well, further reducing the waste in landfills.
    If tended to regularly, a compost pile can transform food scraps and other organic materials into wonderfully fresh, nutrient-filled dirt.
