## Questions

### Subject: Writing

Choose the sentence that contains a grammatical ERROR. a. She and he went to the park. b. The vet told my mom and I that our cat was no longer ill. c. They're having a fun time on their vacation.

The correct answer is b. B contains the grammatical error of "I." It should instead read: "The vet told my mom and ME that our cat was no longer ill." The way to tell when to use "me" or "I" is to remove the other person from the sentence: "The vet told I that our cat was no longer ill." Does that sound correct? No.

### Subject: ACT

Small:large as dog:____ Choose the correct answer to complete the analogy. a. rat b. cat c. elephant d. leash

The correct answer is c because an elephant is the only option that is larger than a dog. In an analogy—x is to y as a is to b—you want the relationship of x to y to be equal to the relationship of a to b. This means that you want to compare the "dog" (a) to something larger than it (b) because "large" (y) is larger than "small" (x).

### Subject: Algebra

Solve for x: [(6x)/15] + 2 = 5

Step 1. Subtract 2 from both sides of the equation (To solve for x, you want to address operations in the opposite order of PEMDAS, meaning addition and subtraction are first. You are trying to get x on the left side by itself: (6x)/15 - 2 = 5 - 2 (6x)/15 = 3 Step 2: Multiply both sides of the equation by 15: [(6x)/15] * 15 = 3 * 15 6x = 45 Step 3: Divide both sides by 6 in order to get x by itself: (6x)/6 = 45/6 x = 45/6 is your final answer.
