SAT Reading Practice Test Comprehensive Passage

This passage is adapted and modified from a romance novel by David Nicholls, first published in 2009. The following 10 multiple choice questions are based on the passage below.

She plucked the cigarette from his mouth. “I can imagine you
at forty,” she said, a hint of malice in her voice. “I can picture
it right now.” He smiled without opening his eyes. “Go on Line
then.” “Alright,” She shuffled up the bed, the duvet tucked
Line 5 beneath her armpits. “You’re in this sports car with the roof
down in Kensington or Chelsea or one of those places and
the amazing thing about this car is it’s silent, “cause all the
cars’ll be silent in, I don’t know, what, 2006?” He scrunched his
eyes to do the sum, “2004”.
Line 10 “And this car is hovering six inches off the ground down the
King’s Road and you’ve got this little paunch tucked under
the leather steering wheel like a little pillow and those
backless gloves on, thinning hair and no chin. You’re a big
man in a small car with a tan like a basted turkey-“So shall
Line 15 we change the subject then? “And there’s this woman next to
you in sunglasses, your third, no, fourth wife, very beautiful,
a model, no, an ex-model, twenty-three, you met her while
she was draped on the bonnet of a car at a motor-show in
Nice or something, and she’s stunning and thick though.”
Line 20 “Well that’s nice. Any kids?”
“No kids, just three divorces, and it’s a Friday in July and
you’re heading off to some house in the country and in the
tiny boot of your hover car are tennis racquets and croquet
mallets and a hamper full of fine wines and South African
Line 25 grapes and poor little quails and asparagus and the wind’s in
your widow’s peak and you’re feeling very, very pleased with
yourself and wife number three, four, whatever, smiles at
you with about two hundred shiny white teeth and you smile
back and try not to think about the fact that you have nothing,
Line 30 absolutely nothing, to say to each other.”
She came to an abrupt halt. You sound insane, she told
herself. Do try not to sound insane. “Course if it’s any
consolation we’ll all be dead in a nuclear war long before
then!” she said brightly, but still he was frowning at her. 
Line 35 “Maybe I should go then. If I’m so shallow and corrupt…” “No,
don’t go,” she said, a little too quickly. “It’s four in the
morning.” “I don’t know where you get this idea of me, you
barely know me.”
“I know the type. “The type? “I’ve seen you, hanging round
Line 40 Modern Languages, braying at each other, throwing black-tie”
dinner parties-“I don’t even own black-tie. And I certainly
don’t bray-“Yachting your way round the Med in the long
hols, ra ra ra-“So if I’m so awful-“…-which you are.”-then
why are you hanging out with me?” Actually I don’t think I
Line 45 have stayed with you, have I? “Well that depends.” He leant
in and kissed her. “Define your terms.” He sat straight up. “By
the way,” she mumbled.
“What?” He felt her hands snake around his, pulling him closer.
“You need to brush your teeth.” “I don’t mind if you
Line 50 don’t.” “S” really horrible, “she laughed. “You taste of wine and
fags. “Well that’s alright then. So do you.” Her head snapped
away, breaking off the kiss. “Do I?” “I don’t mind. I like
wine and fags.” “Won’t be a sec.” She flung the duvet back.
“Where are you going now?” He asked. “Just the bog.” she said,
Line 55 retrieving her spectacles from the pile of books by the bed:
large, black NHS frames, standard issue. “The “bog”, the
“bog”…sorry I’m not familiar…”
He exhaled through his nose and shuffled up the bed, taking
in the shabby rented room, knowing with absolute
Line 60 confidence that somewhere in amongst the art postcards and
photocopied posters for angry plays there would be a
photograph of Nelson Mandela, like some dreamy ideal
boyfriend. In his last four years he had seen any number of
bedrooms like this, dotted round the city like crime scenes,
Line 65 rooms where you were never more than six feet from a Nina
Simone album, and though he’d rarely seen the same
bedroom twice, it was all too familiar. The burnt out
nightlights and desolate pot plants, the smell of washing
powder on cheap, ill-fitting sheets. She had that arty girl’s
Line 70 passion for photomontage too; flash-lit snaps of college
friends and family jumbled in amongst the Chagalls and
Vermeers and Kandinskys, the Che Guevaras and Woody
Allens and Samuel Becketts. Nothing here was neutral,
everything displayed an allegiance or a point of view. The
Line 75 room was a manifesto, and with a sigh Dexter recognised her
as one of those girls who used “bourgeois” as a term of abuse.
He could understand why ‘fascist” might have negative
connotations, but he liked the word “bourgeois” and all that it
implied. Security, travel, nice food, good manners, ambition;
Line 80 what was he meant to be apologising for?
At twenty-three, Dexter Mayhew’s vision of his future was
no clearer than Emma Morley’s. He hoped to be successful,
to make his parents proud and to sleep with more than one
woman at the same time, but how to make these all
Line 85 compatible? He wanted to feature in magazine articles, and
hoped one day for a retrospective of his work, without
having any clear notion of what that work might be. He
wanted to live life to the extreme, but without any mess or
complications. He wanted to live life in such a way that if a
Line 90 photograph were taken at random, it would be a cool
photograph. Things should look right. Fun; there should be a
