TODAYS CSAT QUESTIONS FOR PRACTICE

PASSAGE-1

“It was AC Milan’s success in Europe in the sixties that introduced the ‘libero’ as the Italian default and, a quarter of a century later. It was AC Milan’s success in Europe that killed it off.”

1. Which of the following was not implied in the above sentence?

(a) AC Milan was successful in Europe in the sixties with the help of a ‘libero’.

(b) AC Milan was successful in Europe in the late eighties without a ‘libero’.

(c) The ‘libero’ was an Italian default for almost a quarter of a century.

(d) AC Milan was not successful in Europe for almost a quarter of a century.

 

PASSAGE-2

People must no longer ignore the scientific evidence that life begins at the moment of conception. Abortion is not as simple as removing a “blob of tissue” from a woman’s body. Abortion is the destruction, dismembering and killing of a human life—an unborn baby. According to the medical community, research has shown that the fetus is a living and developing human being whose life begins at the moment of conception. Therefore, it is wrong to murder the innocent child in the womb.

2. Which one of the following accurately presents a rebuttal from an imaginary speaker?

(a) Human beings do not have the right to curtail the life of someone who was granted life by providence.

(b) Children are a gift of God and should be welcomed with open arms.

(c) Women undergoing an abortion are at high risk of medical complications and psychological trauma.

(d) It is the woman’s informed decision to opt for an abortion while being fully aware of the medical risks involved in the process.
