A Tip…..
TIP: Try answering two blank
questions one blank at at time.
If you can eliminate one word in
an answer, the entire choice can
be eliminated.

And the answer is……
Choice (E)!
Choice E is the correct response because
if scientists thought the value of the
evidence was dubious or doubtful, then
they probably would not think it worth
the effort of analysis.

A Tip…..
TIP: DO NOT choose a word
because it “sounds” good in one
part of the sentence. Pick the
answer choice that best
completes the logic of the entire
sentence.

Klein Forest High School
Klein ISD
And the answer is……
Choice (E)!
Choice E is the correct response because
verisimilitude is the quality of
appearing to be true or real. If Greta
claims that the novel depicts reality “so
vividly” that it seems “more like fact
than fiction” than she would be praising
the novel for its verisimilitude.
