p. 13, Test 1, question 20. “Circulo de Artes” should be underlined in the passage. In addition, Choice B should read Circulo de Artes, not Circula de Artes.

p. 21, Explanation for Test 1, question 5 (p. 8). Answer: A. The explanation should read as follows: 

The previous sentence states that Yunus decided to take matters into his own hands (with “matters” referring to the village woman’s inability to earn a living wage from selling brooms), so the sentence in question should indicate what Yunus did to help. In addition, the following sentence refers to the tiny loans, so the sentence in question should logically introduce the idea of the loans. Both A) and C) contain the idea of lending, but only A) explains what Yunus did to help the villagers. C) focuses on the banks, not on Yunus.

p. 38, Test 2, question 31: “they” should be underlined in the passage (Choice A).

p. 136, Test 6, question 16, Answer: D (Pronoun Agreement). The explanation should read as follows: 

Logically, the underlined pronoun must refer to the plural noun “the main engines” (what else could fly itself back to Earth?). “Itself” is singular, eliminating A. “Oneself” and “him- or herself” are singular but only refer to people. “Themselves” is plural and correctly refers to things.
