QUESTION 3


Choice (A) can be eliminated because the text tells you that préciosité came from a group of cultured and educated ladies, not the entirety of French society.Choice (B) can also be eliminated because of phrases such as men scoffed and often dismissed, which indicate that préciosité was mocked before Molière wrote his play.Choice (C) is the only statement supported by the text, as the references to the mocking show that no one at the time truly understood the cultural importance of what was going on.

QUESTION 4


Preferring appearance to substance and excess to moderation… While there are descriptions all throughout the text of both préciosité and neo-classicism, this sentence is the only one with the direct contrast.The passage tells you that the préciosité was fantastically embellished and witty in manner, and that the neo-classicism elevated simplicity and minimalism. However, it’s only in the correct sentence from the first paragraph that the author directly contrasts the two styles.
