    6. Read the paragraph and answer the question that follows. English teachers in the Philippines often find themselves in a very frustrating situation-no matter how hard they try to teach the rules of written English to their students, the students still commit errors in word order, word choice, subject-verb agreement, tenses, prepositions, articles, punctuations, and the like. Teachers get frustrated when they hear or read account sentences such as "They decided to got married,” “What did the students watched?” or "Ana go to the canteen." It is also alarming because the rules that apply to these sentences are supposedly simple rules that these are students should have learned in grade school. Yet, here they are in college, common still committing those same errors. What is the claim of the article?
    Filipinos know how to speak English
    Filipinos are good in English
    Filipinos are going to school to learn English
    Filipinos are bad in English

    16. Read the following paragraph and answer the question that follows. [1] The main environmental problem caused by the production of Greek yogurt is the creation of acid whey as a by-product. [2] Because it requires up to four times more milk to make than conventional yogurt does, Greek yogurt produces larger amounts of acid whey, which is difficult to dispose of. [3] To address the problem of disposal, farmers have found a number of uses for acid whey. [4] They can add it to livestock feed as a protein supplement, and people can make their own Greek-style yogurt at home by straining regular yogurt. [5] If it is improperly introduced into the environment, acid-whey runoff can pollute waterways, depleting the oxygen content of streams and rivers as it decomposes. Question: To make the paragraph more logical, sentence number 5 must be placed _____
    After sentence 3
    c. After sentence 2
    After sentence 1

    17. Read the following paragraphs and answer the question that follow. The main environmental problem caused by the production of Greek yogurt is the creation of acid whey as a by-product. Because it requires up to four times more milk to make than conventional yogurt does, Greek yogurt produces larger amounts of acid whey, which is difficult to dispose of. To address the problem of disposal, farmers have found a number of uses for acid whey. They can add it to livestock feed as a protein supplement, and people can make their own Greek-style yogurt at home by straining regular yogurt. If it is improperly introduced into the environment, acid-whey runoff can pollute waterways, depleting the oxygen content of streams and rivers as it decomposes. Yogurt manufacturers, food scientists; and government officials are also working together to develop additional solutions for reusing whey. [6] Though these conservation methods can be costly and time-consuming, they are well worth the effort. Nutritionists consider Greek yogurt to be a healthy food: it is an excellent source of calcium and protein, serves to be a digestive aid, and it contains few calories in its unsweetened low- and non-fat forms. Greek yogurt is slightly lower in sugar and carbohydrates than conventional yogurt is. Also, because it is more concentrated, Greek yogurt contains slightly more protein per serving, thereby helping people stay satiated for longer periods of time. Question: Should you delete this sentence?
    Yes, because it fails to support the main argument of the passage as introduced in the first paragraph.
    Yes, because it does not provide a transition from the previous paragraph.
    No, because it continues the explanation of how acid whey can be disposed of safely.
    No, because it sets up the argument in the paragraph for the benefits of Greek yogurt.

    20. Read the following paragraph and answer the question that follow. When I left my office job as a website developer at a small company for a position that allowed me to work full-time from home, I thought I had it made: I gleefully traded in my suits and dress shoes for sweatpants and slippers, my frantic early-morning bagged lunch packing for a leisurely midday trip to my refrigerator. The novelty of this comfortable work-from-home life, however, soon got worn off quickly. Within a month, I found myself feeling isolated despite having frequent email and instant messaging contact with my colleagues. Having become frustrated trying to solve difficult problems, no colleagues were nearby to share ideas. It was during this time that I read an article into coworking spaces. Question: Which of the following phrases will be the best to replace the underlined clause?
    ideas couldn’t be shared with colleagues
    c. I missed having colleagues nearby to consult.
    colleagues were important for sharing ideas.
