17 The passages below are followed by questions based on their content; questions following a pair of related passages may also be based on the relationship between the paired passages. Answer the questions on the basis of what is stated or implied in the passages and in any introductory material that may be provided. Questions 6-9 are based on the following passages. Passage 1 I know what your in-box looks like, and it isn t pretty: a babble of come-ons and lies from hucksters and con artists. To find your real , you must wade Line through the torrent of fraud and obscenity known politely 5 as unsolicited bulk and colloquially as spam. In a perverse tribute to the power of the online revolution, we are all suddenly getting the same mail: easy weight loss, get-rich-quick schemes, etc. The crush of these messages is now numbered in billions per day. It s becoming 10 a major systems and engineering and network problem, says one expert. Spammers are gaining control of the Internet. Passage 2 Many people who hate spam assume that it is protected as free speech. Not necessarily so. The United States 15 Supreme Court has previously ruled that individuals may preserve a threshold of privacy. Nothing in the Constitution compels us to listen to or view any unwanted communication, whatever its merit, wrote Chief Justice Warren Burger in a 1970 decision. We therefore categorically reject the argument that a vendor has a right to send 20 unwanted material into the home of another. With regard to a seemingly similar problem, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 made it illegal in the United States to send unsolicited faxes; why not extend the act to include 25 unsolicited bulk ? 6.

The primary purpose of Passage 2 is to (A) confirm a widely held belief (B) discuss the inadequacies of a ruling (C) defend a controversial technology (D) analyze a widespread social problem (E) lay the foundation for a course of action 8. What would be the most likely reaction by the author of Passage 1 to the argument cited in lines of Passage 2 ( Nothing... another )? (A) Surprise at the assumption that freedom of speech is indispensable to democracy (B) Dismay at the Supreme Court s vigorous defense of vendors rights (C) Hope that the same reasoning would be applied to all unsolicited (D) Concern for the plight of mass marketers facing substantial economic losses (E) Appreciation for the political complexity of the debate about spam 9. Unlike the author of Passage 1, the author of Passage 2 (A) criticizes a practice (B) offers an example (C) proposes a solution (D) states an opinion (E) quotes an expert 41

19 13. In line 24, sense most nearly means (A) definition (B) intelligence (C) plausibility (D) consensus (E) impression 14.
