2. Over a certain weekend, Zippy's sold £1,727.75 worth of Specialty 1 and Specialty 2 pizzas. In total, Zippy's sold 124 of these two types of pizzas. How many of the Specialty 2 pizzas did Zippy's sell? A. 96 B. 76 C. 69 D. 55 E. 14

3. The owner of the pizza parlour is considering changing the price of the Specialty 3 pizza, which is Zippy's most popular.

The 'play list' of a radio station is a list of the songs eligible to be played at the station, along with the number of times per day that the song may be played, at maximum. Part of the play list for a specific day at a small, independent radio station is reproduced below.

5. If the radio station wanted to increase the number of plays of 'Yellow Sun, Yellow Moon' and 'Going to the Sea' by three plays each, what is the minimum number of other songs that must have their number of plays reduced in order to free up the time, if no song may have its number of plays reduced by more than 1? A. 8 B. 7 C. 6 D. 5 E. 4

6. If the radio station must pay £0.25 in royalties for each time it plays any given record, what is the lowest amount of royalties it would pay for any given hour? Assume that no song may be played more than three times in any hour, and that only music is played during that hour. A. £3.25 B. £3.50 C. £3.75 D. £4.00 E. £4.25

7. Because 'Flat-top Mountain' and 'Yellow Sun, Yellow Moon' are performed by the same artist, the radio station pays less in royalties if it plays both within the same hour. It must pay £0.25 (which is the standard royalty it pays for any song on the list) when it plays the first of these two songs, but only £0.10 when it plays the second one. What is the maximum amount it could save in any day by playing both songs in the same hour? A. £3.60 B. £2.40 C. £0.50 D. £0.30 E. £0.15

In presidential elections in the United States, the winner of the election is the person who receives a majority of the votes of the delegates to the 'Electoral College'. Each state sends a certain number of delegates to the Electoral College based on that state's population; no state sends fewer than three, and the largest state, California, sends 55. There are 538 delegates in total, and the winning candidate for president must capture the votes of at least 270 of the delegates. The following chart depicts the number of Electoral College delegates from each state.

A. New Jersey, North Carolina, Oregon and Virginia B. Georgia, Michigan, Oklahoma and Washington C. Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts and Tennessee D. Arkansas, Illinois, Louisiana and North Carolina E. Arizona, Colorado, Illinois and Maryland

12. The number of delegates each state sends to the Electoral College is determined by the following formula: 2 + (population of the state/650,000). Which of the following states could have a population of 4,500,000? A. Colorado B. Louisiana C. Idaho D. Both A and B E. Both A and C

Panama Canal The difficulty of carrying waterborne goods between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans was greatly eased by the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914. The Canal shortened trade routes by bypassing the hazardous 8,000 nautical-mile trip around Cape Horn. The many benefits of the Canal beg the question of why it took so long to build it, as plans to build it had languished for some four hundred years. The story of the building of the Canal illustrates both the incredible difficulty of the undertaking and the amazing tenacity of the human spirit. The distance across the Isthmus of Panama is a mere 40 miles. This relatively short distance belies the difficulty inherent in the transit, however; the terrain is mountainous, the jungle is thick, and the area is plagued by yellow fever and malaria. Of these obstacles, the terrain is the most confounding. A canal would either have to be cut through the mountains, which would require record-setting amounts of earth to be moved, or to be built using a series of locks to, in effect, climb over the mountains. In 1880, a French company procured the permission of the government of Colombia - of which Panama was a province at the time - to dig a lockless canal across the isthmus. Vast amounts of materiel were put in place, and hundreds of thousands of engineers, labourers and support personnel were relocated to the jungles of Panama. Unfortunately, their efforts were for naught; poor planning, too-light equipment, and disease (which caused the deaths of some 22,000 people) doomed the French effort to failure, and their canal was abandoned in 1888. In 1902, the American government approved the purchase of the French assets still in place in Panama. A major roadblock - the opposition of the Colombian government to the American proposal - was overcome by inciting Panama to secede from

Colombia. Around the same time, the discovery of the mosquito as the vector species for malaria led to improved sanitation and disease-control efforts in the area, which eliminated the threats of malaria and yellow fever. These victories, along with an improved lock-based design for transiting the continental divide, helped ensure the Americans' success. 38. Panama was not a nation until the twentieth century. A. True B. False C. Can't tell

39. American efforts to build the Panama Canal could not have succeeded without previous efforts by the French. A. True B. False C. Can't tell

40. The decision about whether or not to use locks in the canal's design was hotly contested among French engineers. A. True B. False C. Can't tell

41. The primary difficulty faced by those who wanted to build the Panama Canal was the distance across the isthmus. A. True B. False C. Can't tell

Chimpanzee code In a remote region of Western Africa, anthropologists have been studying a community of chimpanzees that have developed a primitive written code system to communicate. The chimpanzees use sticks to write codes in the dirt or mud, and appear to engage in some form of conversation with each other. By studying the behaviour of the chimpanzees when they read or write the codes, a team of anthropologists has been able to develop a preliminary translation for the code system, as reflected in the table below. You have been invited to accompany your anthropology professor on a field trip to observe the community of chimpanzees, but first you must demonstrate your proficiency with the code system. Your professor has asked you to examine specific codes or sentences and then choose the best answer from five possible interpretations. Sometimes the information will be incomplete or imperfect, but there will always be an answer that makes sense. In other words, there will be a 'best' answer that makes the most sense given the information you have, but you will have to use your judgment and make reasonable inferences to determine the best answer.
