Exam 3
Monday, July 23
Directions:
This 60-minute exam consists of twenty multiple-choice questions. This test is worth
The questions on this test are not in order of difficulty.
In marking the multiple choice bubble sheet use a number 2 pencil. Do not use ink. If
you did not bring a pencil, ask for one. Fill in the appropriate circles completely. If you
need to change any entry, you must completely erase your previous entry.
Carefully read each question and its five possible answers. Select one and only one
answer for each question. Choose the answer that is closest to the correct one.
When you are finished with the exam, return the bubble sheet and the exam itself.
Good luck!
