QUESTION 3


Choice (B) is too narrow because it refers only to the beginning of the passage.Choice (E) is too broad; only a few systems are mentioned and only one is the focus.Choices (A), (C), and (D) are similar, so compare them to each other. If you can’t decide which one to choose, make a guess and move on.Choice (C) is best because it captures the real focus of the passage: why the NEP failed. Choice (D) is close, but the three crises ended a policy, not a whole era.

QUESTION 4

Choice (A) is not supported by the text because the NEPmen were not solely responsible for the downfall of the NEP. Also, the question asks about the author’s opinions, and the description given of the NEPmen is that of popular opinion, not necessarily the author. Choice (B) is supported by the text in the second paragraph stating that the state could not produce or proAt as well as the NEPmen. Choice (C) is not supported by the text. Although all the words in the answer choice look familiar, nothing about the context of the answer choice is actually in the text.The scissors crisis was actually caused by the NEP, not war communism, and it was caused by the government’s spurring of industry, not agriculture.The correct answers are choices (A) and (C).
