SAT Practice Test 11 Answer No 1

Show/Hide Answer

Option B : 

In the passage, Lady Carlotta is approached by the “imposingly attired lady” Mrs. Quabarl while standing at a train station (lines 32-35). Mrs. Quabarl assumes Lady Carlotta is her new nanny, Miss Hope: “You must be Miss Hope, the governess I’ve come to meet” (lines 36-37). Lady Carlotta does not correct Mrs. Quabarl’s mistake and replies, “Very well, if I must I must” (line 39).

Choices A, C, and D are incorrect because the passage is not about a woman weighing a job choice, seeking revenge on an acquaintance, or disliking her new employer.

SAT Practice Test 11 Question No 2

In line 2, “turn” most nearly means

Option A: slight movement.

Option B: change in rotation.

Option C: short walk.

Option D: course correction.

SAT Practice Test 11 Answer No 2

Show/Hide Answer

Option C : 

In lines 1-3, the narrator states that Lady Carlotta “stepped out onto the platform of the small wayside station and took a turn or two up and down its uninteresting length” to “kill time.” In this context, Lady Carlotta was taking a “turn,” or a short walk, along with the platform while waiting for the train to leave the station.

Choices A, B, and D are incorrect because in this context “turn” does not mean slight movement, change in rotation, or course correction. While Lady Carlotta may have had to rotate her body while moving across the station, “took a turn” implies that Lady Carlotta took a short walk along the platform’s length.

SAT Practice Test 11 Question No 3

The passage most clearly implies that other people regarded Lady Carlotta as

Option A: outspoken.

Option B: tactful.

Option C: ambitious.

Option D: unfriendly.

SAT Practice Test 11 Answer No 3

Show/Hide Answer

Option A : 

In lines 10-14, the narrator states that some of Lady Carlotta’s acquaintances would often admonish, or criticize, Lady Carlotta for meddling in or openly expressing her opinion on other people’s affairs.

Choices B, C, and D are incorrect because the narrator does not suggest that other people viewed Lady Carlotta as tactful, ambitious, or unfriendly.

SAT Practice Test 11 Question No 4

Which choice provides the best evidence for the answer to the previous question?

Option A: Lines 10-14 (“Certain… business”)

Option B: Lines 22-23 (“It is… lady”)

Option C: Lines 23-26 (“On this… her”)

Option D: Lines 30-32 (“She… train”)

SAT Practice Test 11 Answer No 4

Show/Hide Answer

Option A : 

In lines 10-14, the narrator states that people often criticized Lady Carlotta and suggested that she not interfere in other people’s affairs, which were “none of her business.” The fact that people often were critical of Lady Carlotta’s behavior provides evidence that Lady Carlotta was outspoken.

Choices B, C, and D do not provide the best evidence that Lady Carlotta was outspoken. Choices B, C, and D mention Lady Carlotta but do not specify how others view her.

SAT Practice Test 11 Question No 5

The description of how Lady Carlotta “put the doctrine of non-interference into practice” (lines 14-15) mainly serves to

Option A: foreshadow her capacity for deception.

Option B: illustrate the subtle cruelty in her nature.

Option C: provide a humorous insight into her character.

Option D: explain a surprising change in her behavior.

SAT Practice Test 11 Answer No 5

Show/Hide Answer

Option C : 

The narrator notes that Lady Carlotta decided not to interfere when one of her “most eloquent exponents” was stuck in a tree because an angry boar was nearby (lines 14-22). This “eloquent exponent” was a woman who often criticized Lady Carlotta for interfering in other people’s affairs. Lady Carlotta’s decision to “put the doctrine of noninterference into practice” (to not help her female acquaintance who was “besieged” in a tree) suggests that Lady Carlotta has a sense of humor.

Choices A, B, and D are incorrect because the description of how she “put the doctrine of non-interference into practice” does not suggest that Lady Carlotta is deceptive or cruel, or explains a surprising change in her behavior.

SAT Practice Test 11 Question No 6

In line 55, “charge” most nearly means

Option A: responsibility.

Option B: attack.

Option C: fee.

Option D: expense.

SAT Practice Test 11 Answer No 6

Show/Hide Answer

Option A : 

The narrator explains that Mrs. Quabarl told Lady Carlotta about the “nature of the charge” when she gave Lady Carlotta details about the Quabarl children (lines 53-61). Since Lady Carlotta is pretending to be a governess, the term “charge” refers to her responsibilities, or job duties, when caring for the Quabarl children.

Choices B, C, and D are incorrect because in this context “charge” does not mean attack, fee, or expense.

SAT Practice Test 11 Question No 7

The narrator indicates that Claude, Wilfrid, Irene, and Viola are

Option A: similar to many of their peers.

Option B: unusually creative and intelligent.

Option C: hostile to the idea of a governess.

Option D: more educated than others of their age.

SAT Practice Test 11 Answer No 7

Show/Hide Answer

Option A : 

Lady Carlotta learns about Mrs. Quabarl’s children Claude, Wilfrid, and Irene (lines 53-58). The narrator then describes Mrs. Quabarl’s child Viola as “something or other else of a mold equally commonplace among children of that class and type in the twentieth century” (lines 58-61). This statement about Viola implies that all of the Quabarl children have skills typical, or “of a mold equally commonplace,” to other peers in their social class.

Choices B, C, and D are incorrect because the narrator does not indicate that all of the Quabarl children are unusually creative and intelligent, hostile to the idea of having a governess, or more educated than their peers.

SAT Practice Test 11 Question No 8

The narrator implies that Mrs. Quabarl favors a form of education that emphasizes

Option A: traditional values.

Option B: active engagement.

Option C: artistic experimentation.

Option D: factual retention.

SAT Practice Test 11 Answer No 8

Show/Hide Answer

Option B : 

In lines 62-69, Mrs. Quabarl explains to Lady Carlotta that she wants her children to actively participate in their education, and that Lady Carlotta should not create lessons that require her children to simply memorize historical figures and dates. Mrs. Quabarl emphasizes an education centered on active engagement when she states that her children should “not only be TAUGHT . . . but INTERESTED in what they learn.”

Choices A, C, and D are incorrect because the narrator does not suggest that Mrs. Quabarl favors an education that emphasizes traditional values, artistic experimentation, or factual retention.

SAT Practice Test 11 Question No 9

As presented in the passage, Mrs. Quabarl is best described as

Option A: superficially kind but selfish.

Option B: outwardly imposing but easily defied.

Option C: socially successful but irrationally bitter.

Option D: naturally generous but frequently imprudent.

SAT Practice Test 11 Answer No 9

Show/Hide Answer

Option B : 

In lines 77-82, the narrator describes Mrs. Quabarl as appearing “magnificent and autocratic,” or outwardly domineering, but easily “cowed and apologetic” when someone challenges, or defies her authority.

Choice A is incorrect because there is no evidence in the passage that Akira is worried his parents will not approve of Naomi. Choice B is incorrect because Akira has “an understanding” of Naomi (line 63). Choice D is incorrect; while Akira may know that Chie is unaware of his feelings for Naomi, this is not what he is referring to when he mentions “a matter of urgency.”

SAT Practice Test 11 Question No 10

Which choice provides the best evidence for the answer to the previous question?

Option A: Lines 49-50 (“How… careless”)

Option B: Lines 62-68 (“I wish… memory”)

Option C: Lines 70-73 (“I shall… Russian”)

Option D: Lines 77-82 (“She was… apologetic”)

SAT Practice Test 11 Answer No 10

Show/Hide Answer

Option D : 

In lines 77-82, the narrator provides evidence that Mrs. Quabarl appears imposing, or autocratic, but is easily defied, or opposed: “She was one of those imperfectly self-assured individuals who are magnificent and autocratic as long as they are not seriously opposed. The least show of unexpected resistance goes a long way towards rendering them cowed and apologetic.”

Choices A, B, and C do not provide the best evidence that Mrs. Quabarl appears imposing but is easily defied. Choices A and B are incorrect because they present Mrs. Quabarl’s opinions on railway companies and education, and choice C is incorrect because it focuses on Lady Carlotta, not Mrs. Quabarl.
