Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct
answer to each of the questions.
Tulips are Old World, rather than New World, plants, with the origins of the species lying in Central
Asia. They became an integral part of the gardens of the Ottoman Empire from the sixteenth century onward,
and, soon after, part of European life as well. Holland, in particular, became famous for its
cultivation of the flower.
A tenuous line marked the advance of the tulip to the New World, where it was unknown in the wild. The
first Dutch colonies in North America had been established in New Netherlands by the Dutch West India
Company in 1624, and one individual who settled in New Amsterdam (today's Manhattan section of New York
City) in 1642 described the flowers that bravely colonized the settlers' gardens. They were the same flowers seen
in Dutch still-life paintings of the time: crown imperials, roses, carnations, and of course tulips. They flourished
in Pennsylvania too, where in 1698 William Penn received a report of John Tateham's "Great and Stately
Palace," its garden full of tulips. By 1760, Boston newspapers were advertising 50 different kinds of mixed
tulip "roots." But the length of the journey between Europe and North America created many difficulties. Thomas
Hancock, an English settler, wrote thanking his plant supplier for a gift of some tulip bulbs from England, but his
letter the following year grumbled that they were all dead.
Tulips arrived in Holland, Michigan, with a later wave of early nineteenth-century Dutch immigrants who
quickly colonized the plains of Michigan. Together with many other Dutch settlements, such as the one at Pella,
Iowa, they established a regular demand for European plants. The demand was bravely met by a new kind of tulip
entrepreneur, the traveling salesperson. One Dutchman, Hendrick van de Schoot, spent six months in 1849
traveling through the United States taking orders for tulip bulbs. While tulip bulbs were traveling from Europe to
the United States to satisfy the nostalgic longings of homesick English and Dutch settlers, North American plants
were traveling in the opposite direction. In England, the enthusiasm for American plants was one reason why
tulips dropped out of fashion in the gardens of the rich and famous.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct
answer to each of the questions.
The stylistic innovation in painting known as Impressionism began in the 1870s. The Impressionists
wanted to depict what they saw in nature, but they were inspired to portray fragmentary moments by the
increasingly fast pace of modern life. They concentrated on the play of light over objects, people, and nature,
breaking up seemingly solid surfaces, stressing vivid contrast between colors in sunlight and shade,
and depiction reflected light in all of its possibilities. Unlike earlier artists, they did not want to observe the
world from indoors. They abandoned the studio, painting in the open air and recording spontaneous
Impressions of their subjects instead of making outside sketches and then moving indoors to complete the work
form memory.
Some of the Impressionists painting methods were affected by technological advances. For example, the
shift from the studio to the open air was made possible in part by the advent of cheap rail travel, which
permitted easy and quick access to the countryside or seashore, as well as by newly developed chemical dyes
and oils that led to collapsible paint tubes, which enabled artists to finish their paintings on the spot.
Impressionism acquired its name not from supporters but from angry art lovers who felt threatened by
the new painting. The term Impressionism was born in 1874, when a group of artists who had been
working together organized an exhibition of their paintings in order to draw public attention to their work.
Reaction from the public and press was immediate, and derisive. Among the 165 paintings exhibited was one
called Impression: Sunrise, by Claude Monet (1840-1926), viewed through hostile eyes, Monets painting of
a rising sun over a misty, watery scene seemed messy, slapdash, and an affront to good taste. Borrowing Monets
title, art critics extended the term Impressionism to the entire exhibit. In response, Monet and his 29 fellow
artists in the exhibit adopted the same name as a badge of their unity, despite individual differences. From
then until 1886 Impressionism had all the zeal of a church, as the painter Renoir put it. Monet was faithful
to the Impressionist creed until his death, although many of the others moved on to new styles.

B. The way the subjects were presented from multiple angles
C. The focus on small solid objects
D. The depiction of the effects of light and color
Question 74: Which of the following is a significant way in which Impressionists were different from the
artists that preceded them?
