Letters ATI TEAS Practice Test #2 The next three questions are based on the following passage. Among the first females awarded a degree from Oxford University, Dorothy L. Sayers proved to be one of the most versatile writers in post-war England. Sayers was born in 1893, the only child of an Anglican chaplain, and she received an unexpectedly good education at home. For instance, her study of Latin commenced when she was only six years old. She entered Oxford in 1912, at a time when the university was not granting degrees to women. By 1920, this policy had changed, and Sayers received her degree in medieval literature and modern languages after finishing university. That same year, she also received a master of arts degree. Sayers’s first foray into published writing was a collection of poetry released in 1916. Within a few years, she began work on the detective novels and short stories that would make her famous, due to the creation of the foppish, mystery-solving aristocrat Lord Peter Wimsey. Sayers is also credited with the short story mysteries about the character Montague Egg. In spite of her success as a mystery writer, Sayers continued to balance popular fiction with academic work; her translation of Dante’s Inferno gained her respect for her ability to convey the poetry in English while still remaining true to the Italian terza rima. She also composed a series of twelve plays about the life of Christ, and wrote several essays about education and feminism. In her middle age, Dorothy L. Sayers published several works of Christian apologetics, one of which was so well-received that the archbishop of Canterbury attempted to present her with a doctorate of divinity. Sayers, for reasons known only to her, declined. 6. Which of the following describes the type of writing used to create the passage? a. narrative b. persuasive c. expository d. technical 7.

In the United States, the foreign language requirement for high school graduation is decided at the state level. This means the requirement varies, with some states deciding to forego a foreign language requirement altogether (www.ncssfl.org). It is necessary that these states reconsider their position and amend their requirements to reflect compulsory completion of a course of one or more foreign languages. Studying a foreign language has become increasingly important for the global economy. As technology continues to make international business relations increasingly easy, people need to keep up by increasing their communication capabilities. High school graduates with foreign language credits have been shown to have an increased college acceptance rate.

Victims of Marah’s disease, a virtually unknown neurological condition, appear pain- free and content. Often, they also have a desire to engage in vigorous physical activities such as contact sports. Beneath it all, they are in great physical pain but have an inability to express it or act to reduce it, making diagnosis difficult. As a result, they are inaccurately diagnosed as very low on the pain scale, their discomfort level much lower than victims of severe sprains, despite the fact that sprains, although more painful, are temporary and comparatively easy to manage nature. 40. This passage makes the argument that a. the pain scale is not an accurate or adequate way to measure the physical discomfort of certain people, such as those suffering from Marah’s disease b. sprain victims have more intense pain than Marah’s sufferers, but they can manage their pain more easily c. the pain scale seems to put more emphasis on intensity of pain than duration d. victims of Marah’s syndrome are often unable to deal effectively with their discomfort The next question is based on the following passage. There is a clear formula that many students are taught when it comes to writing essays. The first is to develop an introduction, which outlines what will be discussed in the work. It also includes the thesis statement. Next come the supporting paragraphs. Each paragraph contains a topic sentence, supporting evidence, and finally a type of mini-conclusion that restates the point of the paragraph. Finally, the conclusion sums up the purpose of the paper and emphasizes that the thesis statement was proven. 41. After the topic sentence, a. a thesis statement is included. b. supporting evidence is presented. c. the conclusion is stated. d. the author outlines what will be discussed. ATI TEAS Practice Test #2 The next question is based on the following passage. At one time, the use of leeches to treat medical problems was quite common. If a person suffered from a snake bite or a bee sting, leeches were believed to be capable of removing the poison from the body if they were placed on top of the wound. They have also been used for bloodletting and to stop hemorrhages, although neither of these leech treatments would be considered acceptable by present-day physicians. Today, leeches are still used on a limited basis. Most often, leeches are used to drain blood from clogged veins. This results in little pain for the patient and also ensures the patient’s blood will not clot while it is being drained. 42. The main purpose of the passage is a. to discuss the benefits of using leeches to treat blocked veins. b. to give an overview of how leeches have been used throughout history. c. to compare which uses of leeches are effective and which are not. d. to explain how leeches can be used to remove poison from the body.

For lunch, she likes ham and cheese (torn into bites), yogurt, raisins, applesauce, peanut butter sandwiches in the fridge drawer, or any combo of these. She’s not a huge eater. Help yourself too. Bread is on counter if you want to make a sandwich. It’s fine if you want to go somewhere, leave us a note of where you are. Make sure she’s buckled and drive carefully! Certain fast food places are fun if they have playgrounds and are indoors. It’s probably too hot for playground, but whatever you want to do is fine. Take a sippy cup of water and a diaper wherever you go. There’s some money here for you in case you decide to go out for lunch with her. As for nap, try after lunch. She may not sleep, but try anyway. Read her a couple of books first, put cream on her mosquito bites (it’s in the den on the buffet), then maybe rock in her chair. Give her a bottle of milk, and refill as needed, but don’t let her drink more than 2 1 bottles of milk or she’ll throw up. Turn on music in her room, leave her in crib with a dry 2 diaper and bottle to try to sleep. She likes a stuffed animal too. Try for 30–45 minutes. You may have to start the tape again. If she won’t sleep, that’s fine. We just call it “rest time” on those days that naps won’t happen. 43.

Volleyball is easy to learn and fun to play in a physical education class. With just one net and one ball, an entire class can participate. The object of the game is to get the ball over the net and onto the ground on the other side. At the same time, all players should be in the ready position to keep the ball from hitting the ground on their own side. After the ball has been served, the opposing team may have three hits to get the ball over the net to the other side. Only the serving team may score. If the receiving team wins the volley, the referee calls, “side out” and the receiving team wins the serve. Players should rotate positions so that everyone gets a chance to serve. A game is played to 15 points, but the winning team must win by two points. That means if the score is 14 to 15, the play continues until one team wins by two. A volleyball match consists of three games. The winner of the match is the team that wins two of the three games. 45. Who can score in a volleyball game? a. the receiving team b. the serving team c. either team d. there is no score 46. How many people can participate in a volleyball game? a. 14 b. 15 c. half of a class d. an entire class The next five questions are based on the following passage. Global warming and the depletion of natural resources are constant threats to the future of our planet. All people have a responsibility to be proactive participants in the fight to save Earth by working now to conserve resources for later. Participation begins with our everyday choices. From what you buy to what you do to how much you use, your decisions affect the planet and everyone around you. Now is the time to take action. When choosing what to buy, look for sustainable products made from renewable or recycled resources. The packaging of the products you buy is just as important as the products themselves. Is the item minimally packaged in a recycled container? How did the product reach the store? Locally grown food and other products manufactured within your community are the best choices. The fewer miles a product traveled to reach you, the fewer resources it required. You can continue to make a difference for the planet in how you use what you bought and the resources you have available. Remember the locally grown food you purchased? Don’t pile it on your plate at dinner. Food that remains on your plate is a wasted resource, and you can always go back for seconds. You should try to be aware of your consumption of water and energy. Turn off the water when you brush your teeth, and limit your showers to five minutes. Turn off the lights, and don’t leave appliances or chargers plugged in when not in use. Together, we can use less, waste less, recycle more, and make the right choices. It may be the only chance we have. ATI TEAS Practice Test #2 47. What is the author’s tone? a. The author’s tone is optimistic. b. The author’s tone is pessimistic. c. The author’s tone is matter-of-fact. d. The author’s tone is angry. 48. Why does the author say it is important to buy locally grown food? a. Buying locally grown food supports people in your community. b. Locally grown food travels the least distance to reach you, and therefore uses fewer resources. c. Locally grown food uses less packaging. d. Locally grown food is healthier for you because it has been exposed to fewer pesticides. 49. What does the author imply will happen if people do not follow his suggestions? a. The author implies we will run out of resources in the next 10 years. b. The author implies water and energy prices will rise sharply in the near future. c. The author implies global warming and the depletion of natural resources will continue. d. The author implies local farmers will lose their farms. 50. “You should try to be aware of your consumption of water and energy.” What does the word “consumption” mean in the context of this selection? a. Using the greatest amount b. Illness of the lungs c. Using the least amount d. Depletion of goods 51.

Locally grown food and other products manufactured within your community are the best choices. c. Turn off the lights, and don’t leave appliances or chargers plugged in when not in use. d. Participation begins with our everyday choices. ATI TEAS Practice Test #2 The next question is based on the following passage. The butterfly effect is a somewhat poorly understood mathematical concept, primarily because it is interpreted and presented incorrectly by the popular media. It refers to systems, and how initial conditions can influence the ultimate outcome of an event. The best way to understand the concept is through an example. You have two rubber balls. There are two inches between them, and you release them. Where will they end up? Well, that depends. If they’re in a sloped, sealed container, they will end up two inches away from each other at the end of the slope. If it’s the top of a mountain, however, they may end up miles away from each other. They could bounce off rocks; one could get stuck in a snow bank while the other continues down the slope; one could enter a river and get swept away. The fact that even a tiny initial difference can have a significant overall impact is known as the butterfly effect. 52. The purpose of this passage is: a. To discuss what could happen to two rubber balls released on top of a mountain. b. To show why you can predict what will happen to two objects in a sloped, sealed container. c. To discuss the primary reason why the butterfly effect is a poorly understood concept. d. To give an example of how small changes at the beginning of an event can have large effects. The next question refers to the following graphic. 53. In what way is the family tree organized? a. The oldest generation at the bottom, and the youngest generation at the top. b. The youngest children on right and the oldest children on the left. c. The youngest children on the left and the oldest children on the right. d.
