B: Sentence #1 contains a double negative—”did not leave no”—which is grammatically incorrect. Sentence #2 contains no errors. Therefore, Choice (B) is the best answer.
C: The passage states that Jimmy Carter Elementary is located on Crescent Avenue.
A: Choice (A) best presents the information completely, clearly, and accurately, without redundant, unclear, or missing information. Choice (B) is misleading. It states the fire was lit “by someone,” and then later notes the arsonist is Kennedy Cochran. Choice (C) includes unnecessary information by stating Cochran is not the property owner. Finally, Choice (D) presents a confusing time line.
C: This is a lot of area to cover on patrol. To use the statistics wisely, you need to identify the location where the buildings are being vandalized, the time of day during which this occurs, and the day of the week. Buildings were vandalized on 32nd and 33rd Streets, along the boardwalk, on Thursdays between 12 a.m. and 3 a.m. Therefore, Choice (C) is the best answer.
B: Before you begin making any calculations, see where you can eliminate obviously incorrect answer choices. If the amount of money in the cash register was reduced, the total money in there now cannot exceed the original amount—you can automatically eliminate Choice (D). You are given that the reduced amount is 25 percent of the original. Look at your choices. Choice (C) looks closer to around 50 percent than 25 percent, so you can eliminate it as well. Finally, now that you only have two choices left, you can calculate. Half of $2,200 is $1,100 (50 percent), and then half of $1,100 is $550 (25 percent).
A: Choice A is correct. Choice (A) is the only option that is the same face as the original, but with a new hairstyle. The women in Choices (B) and (C) both have thicker eyebrows, and the woman in Choice (D) has a thinner, wider mouth.
C: Choices (A) and (B) do not appear to represent safety hazards. Choice (D) may represent a safety hazard, but placing a traffic cone does not seem like an appropriate solution.C: Choices (A) and (B) do not appear to represent safety hazards.
