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 from 36 to 45. Collecting coins can be a good investment, but it requires the study of popularity, availability. and grading techniques. Some coins are more desirable than others, their popularity being affected by the aftists' talent,the subject of the design, the material from which the coin is made, and the time period when the coin was created. Availability is just as critical. Providing the coin is otherwise interesting or pleasing to the eye, the number of coins minted and available on the market seems to have a direct relationship to the popularity.The ability to grade coins is perhaps the most important requirement of a collector. A coin that is popular and scarce, which would normally make it valuable, may be worth much less or nothing at all if it has a low grade. Grading is standardized, and one can buy books and take courses on how to do it. Grades are given letter designations as well as numbers. The letters represent general levels of the grade, while the numbers are more detailed. For example, there are 11 number grades within the letter grade for a mint state coin. A mint state coin is uncirculated, which means it has never been used in commerce. It is in the condition that it left the mint, the place where a coin is created. The mint state letter designation is MS, and the numbers range from 60 through 70. An absolutely perfect coin is MS-70, It takes much training and a good eye to tell the difference between coins in this range. The things one considers include whether the coin has contact rnarks, which are marks obtained when coins bounce against each other in a coin bag; hairlines, which are marks appearing on the face of the coin from theminting process; luster, which is the natural coloration; and eye appeal. For example, an MS-70 is said to have no contact marks, no hairlines, very attractive and fully original luster, and outstanding eye appeal, while air MS-60 may have heavy contact marks, noticeable hairlines, impaired luster, and poor eye appeal. Below the mint state coin, the letter designation and number have the same meaning. That is, there are generally no numbers within the range of letters. But there are categories: . Coins thaf are About Uncirculated: Very Choice About Uncirculated, known as AU-58; Choice About Uncirculated, known as AU-55; and About Uncirculated, known as AU-50. .Coins that are Fine: Choice Extremely Fine, known as EF-45; Extremely Fine, known as EF40; Choice Very Fine, knoiam as VF-30; Very Fine, known as VF-20; and Fine, known as F-12. .Coins that are Good: Very Good, known as VG-8; Good, known as G-4; and About Good, known as AG-3. Thus, a circulated coin can have a number designation between 3 and 58, with only the numbers shown above available. That is, one cannot have a coin with a grade of 6, for example. It is either G-4 o VG-8. It is possible for a coin labeled G-4 or even AG-3 to be extremely valuable, but generally it will be coin that is almost unavailable in higher grades. Books and publications monitor the coin market regularly, just like the stock market is monitored, and they described a coin's type, date, and grade, assigning a price to every one unless that grade would have no value. In general, coin collectors loathe cleaned coins, so artificial cleaning by adding any chemical wil detract greatly from a coin's value. A true coin collector will say the dirt in the creases is a positive attribute and much preferable to a cleaned coin. Question 36: A good title this passage would be A. Coin Grading One of the Most Important Skills in Coin Collecting. B. How to Grade Coins A Detailed Study. C. How Popularity and Availability Affect Coin Value. D. The Financial Benefits of Coin Collecting. Question 37: The author describes a coin's popularity as involving all the following except A. the coin's material. B. how well the artist created the work. C. grade. D. the depiction on the coin. Question 38: The author implies that availability is printarily related to A. the popularity of a coin. B. the material used to create a coin. C. the age of a coin. D. the number of coins of a given type and date that they were minted.

history. Anne Bradstreet wrote some significant poetry in the seventeenth century, Mercy Otis Warren produced the best contemporary history of the American Revolution, and Abigail Adams penned important letters showing she exercised great political influence over her husband, John, the second President of the United States. But little or no notice was taken of these contributions. During these centuries, women remained invisible in history books. Throughout the nineteenth century, this lack of visibility continued, despite the efforts of female authors writing about women. These writers, like most of their male counterparts, were amateur historians. Their writings were celebratory in nature, and they were uncritical in their selection and use of sources. During the nineteenth century, however, certain feminists showed a keen sense of history by keeping records of activities in which women were engaged. National, regional, and local women's organizations compiled accounts of their doings. Personal correspondence, newspaper clippings, and souvenirs were saved and stored. These sources form the core of the two greatest collections of women's history in the United States - one at the Elizabeth and Arthur Schlesinger Library at Radcliff College, and the other the Sophia Smith Collection at Smith College. Such sources have provided valuable materials for later generations of historians. Despite the gathering of more information about ordinary women during the nineteenth century, most of the writing about women conformed to the "great women" theory of history, just as much of mainstream American history concentrated on "great men". To demonstrate that women were making significant contributions to American life, female authors singled out women leaders and wrote biographies, or else important women produced their autobiographies. Most of these leaders were involved in public life as reformers, activists working for women's right to vote, or authors, and were not representative at all of the great mass of ordinary women. The lives of ordinary people continued, generally, to be untold in the American histories being published. Question 66: The word "they" in the passage refers to __________. A. sources B. authors C. counterparts D. efforts Question 67: In the second paragraph, what weakness in nineteenth-century histories does the author point out? A. They put too much emphasis on daily activities. B. The sources of the information they were based on were not necessarily accurate. C. They were printed on poor quality paper. D. They left out discussion of the influence on money on politics. Question 68: The word "representative" in the passage is closest in meaning to ______. A. distinctive B. supportive C. typical D. satisfied Question 69: The word "celebratory" in the passage means that the writings referred to were _________. A. serious B. religious C. related to parties D. full of praise Question 70: What does the passage mainly discuss? A. The place of American women in written histories. B. The "great women" approach to history used by American historians. C. The keen sense of history shown by American women. D. The role of literature in early American histories. Question 71:The word "contemporary" in the passage is closest in meaning to ______. A. written at that time B. past C. temporary D. belonging to the present time Question72: What use was made of the nineteenth-century women's history materials in the Schlesinger Library and the Sophia Smith Collection?
