Re: GRE RC Preparation

As you asking here I am telling GRE Reading Comprehension (RC) subject test your ability to understand a passage and answer questions on the basis of what is stated and implied in the passage.

Passage

Although the schooling of fish is familiar form of animal social behaviour, how the school is formed and maintained is only beginning to be understood in detail. It had been thought that each fish maintains its position chiefly by means of vision. Our work as shown that, as each fish maintains its position, the lateral line, an organ sensitive to transitory changes in water displacement, is as important as vision. In each species a fish has a “preferred” distance and dangle from its nearest neighbor. The ideal separation and bearing, however, are not maintained rigidly. The result is a probabilistic arrangement that appears like a random aggregation. The tendency of the fish to remain at the preferred distance and angle, however, serves to maintain the structure. Each fish, having established its position, uses its eyes and its lateral lines simultaneously to measure the speed of all the other fish in the school. It then adjusts its own speed to match a weighted average that emphasizes the contribution of nearby fish.
Question 1

A. Maintain its preferred position primarily by visual and auditory means
B. Rigorously avoid changes that would interfere with the overall structure of the school
C. Make conscious sensory readjustments to its position within the school
D. Make unexpected shifts in position only if threatened by external danger
E. Surrender its ability to make quick, instinctive judgements

4. The author takes multiple perspectives when describing New York. What two tones are primarily utilized?
A) Impressed and critical

C) A single location can have many facets, both positive and negative.
D) Large cities tend to lack whimsical and artistic sights.
E) Smaller, Midwest locations are superior to large, urban spaces.
