  • Q13
    Preclinical studies have documented acupuncture's effects, but they have not been able to fully explain how acupuncture works within the framework of the Western system of medicine that is commonly practiced in the United States. It is proposed that acupuncture produces its effects through regulating the nervous system, thus aiding the activity of pain-killing biochemicals such as endorphins and immune system cells at specific sites in the body. In addition, studies have shown that acupuncture may alter brain chemistry by changing the release of neurotransmitters and neurohormones and, thus, affecting the parts of the central nervous system related to sensation and involuntary body functions, such as immune reactions and processes that regulate a person's blood pressure, blood flow, and body temperature. Which statement is a correct generalization based on the information in this paragraph?
    Western and Eastern forms of medicine should always be combined when treating a patient.
    Eastern forms of alternative medicine are risky and should be avoided.
    Western forms of medicine are not as effective as Eastern forms of medicine.
    Eastern forms of alternative medicine can be effective in treating ailments.

What can be assumed about Agathokleya Kuzminishna Kirsanov based on the details of this description?
    That Agathokleya is a rather weak-minded woman
    That Agathokleya is a rather humble woman
    That Agathokleya is a rather proud woman
    That Agathokleya is a rather vain and cruel woman
  • Q15
