On April 30, 1803, the United States bought the Louisiana Territory from the French. Astounded and excited by the offer of a sale and all that it would mean, it took less than a month to hear the offer and determine to buy it for $15 million. Right away the United States had more than twice the amount of land as before, giving the country more of a chance to become powerful. They had to move in military and governmental power in this region, but even as this was happening they had very little knowledge about the area.

They were known as “The Five”: a group of Russian musicians who eschewed rigidly formal classical training and set out on their own to give a new artistic sound to classical music in Russia. Mily Balakirev and Cesar Cui are considered the founders of the movement, but the three who later joined them have become far more famous and respected outside, and perhaps even inside, of Russia. Modest Mussorgsky, with his passion for themes of Russian folklore and nationalism, is remembered for the piano piece Pictures and an Exhibition, as well as for the passionate opera Boris Godunov. Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, who spent his early years as a naval officer, had a penchant for infusing his works with the sounds of the sea. But, he might be best remembered for the hauntingly beautiful symphonic suite Scheherazade. Alexander Borodin balanced a career as a skilled and highly respected chemist with his interest in classical music. He produced a number of symphonies, as well as the opera Prince Igor. Despite their lack of formal training and their unorthodox approach to producing classical music, The Five had an influence that reached far beyond their time. Composers such as Alexander Glazunov, Sergei Prokofiev, and Igor Stravinsky studied under Rimsky-Korsakov. Additionally, the mid-twentieth century composer Dmitri Shostakovich studied under Glazunov, creating a legacy of musical understanding that persisted well beyond the era of The Five. 13. Which of the following describes the type of writing used in the passage? a. narrative b. persuasive c. expository d. technical 14. Which of the following is the best summary sentence for the passage? a. Composers such as Alexander Glazunov, Sergei Prokofiev, and Igor Stravinsky studied under Rimsky-Korsakov. b. Despite their lack of formal training and their unorthodox approach to producing classical music, The Five had an influence that reached far beyond their time. c. They were known as “The Five”: a group of Russian musicians whoeschewed rigidly formal classical training and set out on their own to give a new artistic sound to classical music in Russia. d. Mily Balakirev and Cesar Cui are considered the founders of the movement, but the three who later joined them have become far more famous and respected outside, and perhaps even inside, of Russia. ATI TEAS Practice Test #3 15. Based on the information in the passage, which of the composers among The Five would the author likely agree was the most influential? a. Alexander Glazunov b. Modest Mussorgsky c. Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov d. Cesar Cui 16. Which of the answer choices gives the best definition for the underlined word in the following sentence? Seeing the cookie crumbs on the child’s face, Ena could not believe he would tell such a barefaced lie and claim he had not eaten any cookies. a. effective b. arrogant c. shameless d. hostile The next five questions are based on the following passage. Stories have been a part of the world since the beginning of recorded time. For centuries before the invention of the printing press, stories of the world were passed down to generations through oral tradition. With the invention of the printing press, which made written material available to wide ranges of audiences, books were mass-produced and introduced into greater society. For the last several centuries, books have been at the forefront of education and entertainment. With the invention of the Internet, reliance on books for information quickly changed. Soon, almost everything that anyone needed to know could be accessed through the Internet. Large printed volumes of encyclopedias became unnecessary as all of the information was easily available on the Internet. Despite the progression of the Internet, printed media was still very popular in the forms of both fiction and non-fiction books. While waiting for an appointment, enduring a several-hour flight, or relaxing before sleep, books have been a reliable and convenient source of entertainment, and one that society has not been willing to give up. With the progression and extreme convenience of technology, printed books are going to soon become a thing of the past. Inventions such as the iPad from Macintosh and the Kindle have made the need for any kind of printed media unnecessary. With a rechargeable battery, a large screen, and the ability to have several books saved on file, electronic options will soon take over and society will no longer see printed books. Although some people may say that the act of reading is not complete without turning a page, sliding a finger across the screen or pressing a button to read more onto the next page is just as satisfying to the reader. The iPad and Kindle are devices that have qualities similar to a computer and can be used for so much more than just reading. These devices are therefore better than books because they have multiple uses. ATI TEAS Practice Test #3 In a cultural society that is part of the world and due to a longstanding tradition, stories will always be an important way to communicate ideas and provide information and entertainment. Centuries ago, stories could only be remembered and retold through speech. Printed media changed the way the world communicated and was connected, and now, as we move forward with technology, it is only a matter of time before we must say goodbye to the printed past and welcome the digital and electronic future. 17. What is the main argument of this essay? a. iPad and Kindles are easier to read than books b. The printing press was a great invention c. The Internet is how people receive information d. Technology will soon replace printed material 18. What is the main purpose of paragraph 1? a. To explain oral tradition b. To explain the importance of the printing press c. To explain the progression of stories within society d. To introduce the essay 19. According to the essay, what was the first way that stories were communicated and passed down? a. Oral tradition b. Printed books c. Technology d. Hand writing 20. Which of the following statements is an opinion? a. Despite the progression of the Internet, printed media was still very popular in theforms of both fiction and non-fiction books b. Although some people may say that the act of reading is not complete without turning a page, sliding a finger across the screen or pressing a button to read more onto the next page is just as satisfying to the reader c. With the invention of the Internet, reliance on books for information quickly changed d. Stories have been a part of the world since the beginning of recorded time 21. What is a secondary argument the author makes? a. Devices such as the iPad or Kindle are better than books because they have multiple uses b. Books are still important to have while waiting for an appointment or taking a flight c. Printed encyclopedias are still used and more convenient that using the Internet d. With technology, there will soon be no need for stories ATI TEAS Practice Test #3 The next four questions are based on the following passage. Starting in 1856, Alfred, Lord Tennyson began publishing his compilation of Arthurian legends that became known as Idylls of the King. These poems were based on the earlier Medieval collection Le Morte d’Arthur, by Sir Thomas Malory, which dated to the middle of the 15th century. Malory’s work, which is believed to be largely a translation of older French stories, was written in prose style. It combined the earlier tales into a single grouping for English readers. As the title suggests, Malory’s focus was largely on the epic nature of Arthur’s life. Malory discussed his birth, his rise as a prince and warrior, his quests as a knight, and his eventual death. Malory also included chapters on knights such as Lancelot and Gareth, and he discussed the relationships between Tristan and Isolde, and Lancelot and Guinevere. Instead of embracing the romance angle, however, Malory focused more on the moral elements within these stories. Tennyson, though heavily influenced by Malory, took a different approach to the Arthurian stories. For one, he wrote them in poetry form, not prose. Additionally, Tennyson, as a Victorian poet, was more interested in the romantic qualities of the stories, and included the distinct elements of nature and elegy. Idylls of the King has a softer focus overall. For instance, in Malory’s work, Guinevere faces execution for her adultery, and is only spared when Lancelot rides in to rescue her. In Tennyson’s work, Arthur chooses to forgive Guinevere, and she chooses to spend the rest of her days doing good works in a convent. Some literary scholars believe that Tennyson was writing an allegory about social problems and the need for social justice that existed during Tennyson’s own time. Charles Dickens is remembered for doing the same thing in his novels about the abuses of lower- class children in Victorian England. 22. Which of the following describes the structure of the above passage? a. problem-solution b. sequence c. comparison-contrast d. cause-effect 23. The author of the passage notes several distinctions between Tennyson and Malory. Which of the following is not identified as a difference between the two authors? a. Malory wrote prose, while Tennyson wrote poetry. b. Malory wrote during the Medieval era, while Tennyson wrote during the Victorian era. c. Malory was more focused on heroism and morality, while Tennyson was more focused on nature and elegy. d. Malory wrote stories about Gareth, Tristan, and Isolde, while Tennyson focused only on Arthur, Lancelot, and Guinevere. 24. Which of the following sentences distracts the reader from the main focus of the passage? a. Malory’s work, which is believed to be largely a translation of older French stories, was written in prose style. b. Instead of embracing the romance angle, however, Malory focused more on the moral elements within these stories. c. In Tennyson’s work, Arthur chooses to forgive Guinevere, and she chooses to spend the rest of her days doing good works in a convent. d. Charles Dickens is remembered for doing the same thing in his novels about the abuses of lower-class children in Victorian England. ATI TEAS Practice Test #3 25. With which of the following statements would the author of the passage most likely agree? a. Malory and Tennyson shaped their approach to the Arthurian legends based on the defining qualities of their respective eras. b. Because Le Morte d’Arthur is more of a translation than a literary creation, Idylls of the King is a superior work. c. By undermining the moral qualities that Malory highlighted, Tennyson failed to appreciate the larger purpose of the stories in a Medieval context. d. Ultimately, Malory’s influence on Tennyson was minimal, because Tennyson took a different approach and infused his poems with the mood of his day. 26. Regina has a severe allergy to dairy products.

Passage 1: Fairy tales, fictional stories that involve magical occurrences and imaginary creatures like trolls, elves, giants, and talking animals, are found in similar forms throughout the world. This occurs when a story with an origin in a particular location spreads geographically to, over time, far-flung lands. All variations of the same story must logically come from a single source. As language, ideas, and goods travel from place to place through the movement of peoples, stories that catch human imagination travel as well through human retelling. Passage 2: Fairy tales capture basic, fundamental human desires and fears. They represent the most essential form of fictionalized human experience: the bad characters are pure evil, the good characters are pure good, the romance of royalty (and of commoners becoming royalty) is celebrated, etc. Given the nature of the fairy tale genre, it is not surprising that many different cultures come up with similar versions of the same essential story. 43. On what point would the authors of both passages agree? a. Fairy tales share a common origin. b. The same fairy tale may develop independently in a number of different cultures. c. There are often common elements in fairy tales from different cultures. d. Fairy tales capture basic human fears. 44. What does the “nature of the fairy tale genre” refer to in Passage 2? a. The representation of basic human experience b. Good characters being pure good and bad characters being pure evil c. Different cultures coming up with similar versions of the same story d. Commoners becoming royalty ATI TEAS Practice Test #3 45. Which of the following is not an example of something the author of Passage 1 claims travels from place to place through human movement? a.

Talking animals d. Giants The next two questions are based on the passage above. What outdoorsy, family adventure can you have on a hot, summer day? How about spelunking? If you live in an area that is anywhere near a guided, lit cave, find out the hours of operation and hit the road towards it as soon as you can. Hitch up the double jogging stroller and make your way out into the wilderness, preferably with a guide, and discover the wonders of the cool, dark earth even while it is sweltering hot in the outside world. It will be 58 degrees in that cave, and you can explore inside for as long as you please. Best part? The absolutely awesome naps that the kids will take after such an exciting adventure! Be sure to bring the following items: • Bottled water • Light-up tennis shoes if you have them (they look fabulous in the dark) • Flashlights or glow sticks just for fun • Jackets • Changes of clothes in case of getting muddy and/or dirty 47. Based on the information given, what is spelunking? a. going in a cave b. an outdoor adventure c. walking with a double stroller d. a hot, summer day 48. Given the style of writing for the passage, which of the following magazines would be the best fit for this article? a. Scientific Spelunking b. Family Fun Days c. Adventures for Men d. Mud Magazine ATI TEAS Practice Test #3 The next four questions are based on the following passage: How are Hypotheses Confirmed? Most scientists agree that while the scientific method is an invaluable methodological tool, it is not a failsafe method for arriving at objective truth. It is debatable, for example, whether a hypothesis can actually be confirmed by evidence. When a hypothesis is of the form “All x are y,” it is commonly believed that a piece of evidence that is both x and y confirms the hypothesis. For example, for the hypothesis “All monkeys are hairy,” a particular monkey that is hairy is thought to be a confirming piece of evidence for the hypothesis. A problem arises when one encounters evidence that disproves a hypothesis: while no scientist would argue that one piece of evidence proves a hypothesis, it is possible for one piece of evidence to disprove a hypothesis. To return to the monkey example, one hairless monkey out of one billion hairy monkeys disproves the hypothesis “All monkeys are hairy.” Single pieces of evidence, then, seem to affect a given hypothesis in radically different ways. For this reason, the confirmation of hypotheses is better described as probabilistic. Hypotheses that can only be proven or disproven based on evidence need to be based on probability because sample sets for such hypotheses are too large. In the monkey example, every single monkey in the history of monkeys would need to be examined before the hypothesis could be proven or disproven. By making confirmation a function of probability, one may make provisional or working conclusions that allow for the possibility of a given hypothesis being disconfirmed in the future. In the monkey case, then, encountering a hairy monkey would slightly raise the probability that “all monkeys are hairy,” while encountering a hairless monkey would slightly decrease the probability that “all monkeys are hairy.” This method of confirming hypotheses is both counterintuitive and controversial, but it allows for evidence to equitably affect hypotheses and it does not require infinite sample sets for confirmation or disconfirmation. 49. What is the main idea of the second paragraph? a. One hairy monkey proves the hypothesis “All monkeys are hairy.” b. The same piece of evidence can both confirm and disconfirm a hypothesis. c. Confirming and disconfirming evidence affect hypotheses differently. d. The scientific method is not a failsafe method for arriving at objective truth. 50. A synonym for disconfirmed would be: a. proven b. dissipated c. distilled d. disproven 51. Which of the following is true of hypotheses of the form “All x are y”? a. Something that is neither x nor y disproves the hypothesis. b. Something that is both x and y disproves the hypothesis. c. Something that is x but not y disproves the hypothesis. d. Something that is y but not x disproves the hypothesis. ATI TEAS Practice Test #3 52. Using the same reasoning as that in the passage, an automobile with eighteen wheels does what to the following hypothesis: “All automobiles have only four wheels”? a. It proves the hypothesis. b. It raises the hypothesis’s probability. c. It disproves the hypothesis. d. It decreases the hypothesis’s probability. The next question refers to the following graphic. 53. Shaded areas on the map indicate water use, with darker areas indicating heavier use. Which of the following is the best inference regarding the areas where there is no shading? a. They are less inhabited. b. They are more desert-like. c. Residents are better at conservation. d. Residents require less water per capita.
