Directions for Questions 33 & 37:
Read the passage and answer the questions that follow on
the basis of the information provided in the passage.
It is frequently assumed that the mechanization of work
has a revolutionary effect on the lives of the people who
operate the new machines and on the society into which
the machines have been Introduced. For example, It has
been suggested that the employment of women in
industry took them out of the household, their traditional
sphere, and fundamentally altered their position in
In the nineteenth century, when women began to enter
factories, Jules Simon, a French politician, warned that by
doing so, women would give up their femininity. Friedrich Engel's, however, predicted that women would be liberated
from the "social, legal, and economic subordination" of the
family by technologic developments that made
possible the recruitment of "the whole female sex into
public Industry." Observers thus differed concerning the
social desirability of mechanization's effects, but they
agreed that it would transform women's lives.
Historians, particularly those investigating the history of
women, now seriously question this assumption of
transforming power. They conclude that such dramatic
technological innovations as the spinning jenny, thesewing machine, the typewriter, and the vacuum cleaner
have not resulted in equally dramatic social changes in
women's economic position or in the prevailing evaluation
of women's work. The employment of young women in
textile mills during the Industrial Revolution was largely
an extension of an older pattern of employment of young,
single women as domestics.
It was not the change in office technology, but rather the
separation of secretarial work, previously seen as an
apprenticeship for beginning managers, from
administrative work that in the 1880's created a new class
of "dead· end" jobs, henceforth considered "women's
The increase in the numbers of married women employed
outside the home in the twentieth century had less to do
with the mechanizations of housework and an increase in
leisure time for these women than It did with their own
economic necessity and with high marriage rates that
shrank the available pool of single women workers,
previously, in many cases, the only women employers
would hire. Women's work has changed considerably in
the past 200 years, moving from the household to the
office or the factory, and later becoming mostly white·
collar instead of blue-collar work.
Fundamentally, however, the conditions under which
women work have changed little since before the
Industrial Revolution: the segregation of occupations by
gender, lower pay for women as a group, jobs that require
relatively low levels of skill and offer women little
opportunity for advancement all persist, while women's
household labor remains demanding. Recent historical
investigation has led to a major revision of the notion that
technology is always inherently revolutionary In it effects
on society. Mechanization may even have slowed any
change in the traditional position of women both in the
labor market and in the home.
33) Which of the following statements best summarizes
the main idea of the passage?
A) The effects of the mechanization of women's work have not
borne out the frequently held assumption that new technology
is inherently revolutionary.
B) Recent studies have shown that mechanization
revolutionizes a society's traditional values and the customary
roles of its members.
C) Mechanization has caused the nature of women's work to
change since the Industrial Revolution.
D) The mechanization of work creates whole new classes of
jobs that did not previously exist.
34) The author mentions all of the following inventions as
examples of dramatic technological innovations EXCEPT
A) Sewing machine
C) Vacuum cleaner
35) It can be inferred from the passage that, before the
Industrial Revolution, the majority of women's work was
done in which of the following settings?
A) Textile mills
C) Private households
36) It can be inferred from the passage that the author
would consider which of the following to be an indication
of a fundamental alteration in the conditions of women's
A) Statistics showing that the majority of women now occupy
B) Interviews with married men indicating that they are now
doing some household tasks
C) Surveys of the labor market documenting the recent
creation of a new class of jobs in electronics in which women
workers outnumber men four to one.
D) Census results showing that working women's wages and
salaries are, on the average, as high as those of working men.
37) The passages states that, before the twentieth century,
which of the following was true of many employers?
A) They did not employ women in factories.
B) They tended to employ single rather than married women.
C) They employed women in only those jobs that were related
to women's traditional household work.
D) They resisted technological innovations that would radically
change women's roles in the family.
Directions for Questions 38-42:
Keats, perhaps, is the saddest example of a fine spirit
hounded to death by savage criticism; because, whatever
his biographers may aver, that furious attack of Gifford
and Terry undoubtedly expedited his death. But no doubt
there are hundreds who suffer keenly from hostile and
unscrupulous criticism, and who have to bear that
suffering in silence, because it is a cardinal principle in
literature that the most unwise thing in the world for an
author is to take public notice of criticism in the way of
defending himself. Silence is the only safeguard, as it is
the only dignified protest against insult and offence.

Read the passage and answer the questions that follow on :
40) Are editors and publishers sympathetic to young
the basis of the information provided in the passage. authors?
Unquestionably, a literary life is for most part an unhappy
life, because, if you have genius, you must suffer the
penalty of genius; and, if you have only talent, there are so
many cares and worries incidental to the circumstances of
men of letters, as to make
