  1. Unit Two Test

  2. The aspect of Abraham Lincoln that Sandburg reflects • in this essay is Lincoln’s many-sided personality.

  3. Lincoln was willing to “stick [the Constitution] in a hole” because • he believed it was necessary to violate the Constitution in order to save the Union.

  4. Sandburg portrays Lincoln as • a principled and practical politician.

  5. Sandburg describes Lincoln’s admission of Nevada to the Union as • manipulation because he wants to show that Lincoln used political means to gain his desired end.

  6. Given that Sandburg’s A Lincoln Preface is biographical, • a purpose for reading it might be to learn about Abraham Lincoln’s life.

  7. Sandburg’s biography of Lincoln paints a picture of the president • as a complex man who lived in a time of a grave crisis.

  8. King’s intended effect in the speech “I Have a Dream” • is to challenge people to improve the civil rights of all Americans

  9. The speech “I Have a Dream” reveals that King • was a leader who was deeply concerned about the future of black people.

  10. The ending of “I Have a Dream” evokes a strong feeling of • hope and optimism.

  11. The bus driver asks Rosa Parks to give up her seat because • she is in the front of the “black section” and a white man doesn’t have a seat to sit in.

  12. Rosa Parks explains “what kind of tired” she was • so people will know she chose not to give up her seat.

  13. The phrase that best describes the workers mentioned in “I Hear America Singing” • is people working hard and being satisfied by their work.

  14. The theme, or message, that Whitman conveys in “I Hear America Singing” • is America is the sum of different contributions from many people.

  15. The best description of Chief Dan George’s idea of new Native American warriors • is the new warriors will have skills that give them a sense of worth and purpose.

  16. The Mandarin’s daughter gives advice from behind a screen • because she does not want her father to appear weak by openly receiving advice from a woman.

  17. The townspeople become weak or ill and many • die in response to rebuilding the wall over and over again.

  18. The immediate consequences of the meeting between the Mandarin and Kwan-Si • is they agree to the solution to the problem that the daughter suggests.

  19. The daughter helps her father and Kwan-Si see the solution • to the problem by taking them outside to see how kites and the wind go together.

  20. A reader can determine the moral of a fable when the moral • is not stated directly in the fable by examining the actions and choices of the characters.

  21. The element of fantasy that is essential to • “Old Man of the Temple” is the narrator’s encounter with a ghost.

  22. The narrator describes • Doss as well-behaved and obedient.

  23. When Doss speaks in a “thin, piping” voice, it is • because Doss has been transformed into the old man.

  24. This story is a fantasy • because it contains elements that could not really happen.

  25. The most likely inference to be drawn from the scene where the old man • sees his dead wife coming toward him is that the • old man’s spirit has called his wife’s spirit to him.

  26. The old man falls to the ground in a heap when he sees his wife. • From this we can infer that the old man’s spirit • leaves Doss’s body to join his wife’s spirit.

  27. The ghost of Krishna Battar • has been knocking on the family’s door.

  28. The most likely inference to be drawn from the absence • of knocking sounds at the temple doors is that the old man’s spirit has gone to the afterlife.

  29. In “Perseus,” King Acrisius confines his daughter • to an underground house because he wants to make certain she has no children.

  30. When Danaë and the infant Perseus are adrift in the great chest, • it seems reasonable to assume they will escape • because the myth’s hero will likely survive.

  31. The true father of Perseus • is the god Zeus.

  32. As Perseus grows up, Danaë allows him to become • a fisherman on the little island because • Acrisius cannot know where he is.

  33. Polydectes invites Perseus to his wedding celebration • in order to take advantage of the youth’s embarrassment.

  34. Athena gave Perseus her brilliantly polished shield • because it would spare Perseus from looking at Medusa and thus prevent him from turning to stone.

  35. Hermes and Athena didn’t give Perseus all he needed to attack Medusa • because Perseus had to prove his daring with the Gray Women first.

  36. Perseus probably could not have defeated Medusa without supernatural assistance • because he could not have found her, looked at her, or pierced her scales.

  37. In the world of mythology, a sure way to draw the wrath of the gods • is to proclaim mortal superiority over a god.

  38. When Komunyakaa says the boys were “Glistening with sweat,” • the image provides a precise picture of the players.

  39. When Komunyakaa writes of the players driving to the basket and gliding “like a sparrow hawk,” • he suggests the grace of flight in the players’ moves. He might have selected a sparrow hawk • for this image rather than a dove because sparrow hawks use quick, aggressive moves and doves do not.

  40. The first two lines of “The Spearthrower” by Lillian Morrison are “She walks alone / to the edge of the park.” • The woman is alone because women interested in athletics have often been ignored.

  41. In “The Spearthrower,” the line “her quick laps” demonstrate Morrison’s theme about • women’s athletics. By using the word “her,” it emphasizes that the “runner” is a woman because most readers might assume “runner” means a man.

  42. In “Shoulders,” the man is carrying “sensitive cargo” • so carefully crossing the street because the cargo is his son.

  43. In “Shoulders,” the line “His ear fills up with breathing” creates the sense • of what it feels like to have a child asleep on your shoulder.

  44. Good Luck! Don’t forget to have fun.
