The family returned to the United States in 1849. Two years later Whistler entered the U.S. military academy at West Point, but he was unable to graduate.

Many unaware stargazers falsely assume that each star has its own permanent home in the nighttime sky.In reality, though, stars are always moving, but because of the tremendous distances between stars themselves and from stars to Earth, the changes are barely perceptible here. An example of a rather fast-moving star demonstrates why this misconception prevails; it takes approximately 200 years for a relatively rapid star like Bernards star to move a distance in the skies equal to the diameter of the earths moon. When the apparently negligible movement of the stars is contrasted with the movement of the planets, the stars are seemingly unmoving.20. Which of the following is the best title for this passage? a.

In line 6, a misconception is closest in meaning to a (n) a. idea b. proven fact c. erroneous belief d. theory25. The passage states that in 200 years Bernards star can move a. around Earths moon b. next to the earths moon c. a distance equal to the distance from earth to the moon d. a distance seemingly equal to the diameter of the moon26. The passage implies that from earth it appears that the planets a. are fixed in the sky b. move more slowly than the stars c. show approximately the same amount of movement as the stars d. travel through the sky considerably more rapidly than the stars27. The word negligible in line 8 could most easily be replaced by a. negative b. insignificant c. rapid d. distant28. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage? a. starts do not appear to the eye to move. b. the large distances between stars and the earth tend to magnify movement to the eye c. Bernards star moves quickly in comparison with other stars d. although stars move, they seem to be fixed29. The paragraph following the passage most probably discusses a. the movement of the planets b. Bernards star c. the distance from earth to the moon d. why stars are always moving

30. This passage would most probably be assigned reading in which course? a. astrology b. geophysics c. astronomy d. geographyQuestions 31-40It has been noted that, traditionally, courts have granted divorces on fault grounds: one spouse is deemed to be at fault in causing the divorce. More and more today, however, divorces are being granted on a no-fault basis.Proponents of no-fault divorces argue that when a marriage fails, it is rarely the case that one marriage partner is completely to blame and the other blameless. A failed marriage is much more often the result of mistakes by both partners.Another argument in favor of no-fault divorce is that proving fault in court, in a public arena, is a destructive process that only serves to lengthen the divorce process and that dramatically increases the negative feelings present in a divorce. If a couple can reach a decision to divorce without first deciding which partner is to blame, the divorce settlement can be negotiated more easily and equitably and the postdivorce healing process can begin more rapidly.31. What does the passage mainly discuss? a. Traditional grounds for divorce b. Who is at fault in a divorce c. Why no-fault divorces are becoming more common d. The various reasons for divorces32.

It is implied in the passage that a. there recently has been a decrease in no-fault divorces b. not all divorces today are no-fault divorces c. a no-fault divorce is not as equitable as a fault divorce d. people recover more slowly from a no-fault divorce35. The word proponents in line 4 is closest in meaning to which of the following? a. Advocates b. Recipients c. Authorities d. Enemies36. The passage states that a public trial to prove the fault of one spouse can a. be satisfying to the wronged spouse b. lead to a shorter divorce process c. reduce negative feelings d. be a harmful process

37. Which of the following is NOT listed in this passage as an argument in favor of no-fault divorce? a. Rarely is only one marriage partner to blame for a divorce b. A no-fault divorce generally costs less in legal fees c. Finding fault in a divorce increases negative feelings d. A no-fault divorce settlement is generally easier to negotiate38. The word present in line 9 could most easily be replaced by a. existing b. giving c. introducing d. resulting39. The word settlement in line 10 is closest in meaning to a. development b. serenity c. discussion d. Agreement

40. The tone of this passage is a. emotional b. enthusiastic c. expository d. reactionaryQuestions 41-50Whereas literature in the first half of the eighteenth century in America had been largely religious and moral in tone, by the latter half of the century the revolutionary fervor that was coming to life in the colonies began to be reflected in the literature of the time, which in turn served to further influence the population. Although not all writers of this period supported the Revolution, the two best-known and most influential writers, Ben Franklin and Thomas Paine, were both strongly supportive of that cause.Ben Franklin first attained popular success through his writings in his brothers newspaper, the New England Current. In these articles he used a simple style of language and common sense argumentation to defend the point of view of the farmer and the Leather Apron man. He continued with the same common sense practicality and appeal to the common man with his work on Poor Richards Almanac from 1733 until 1758. Firmly established in his popular acceptance by the people, Franklin wrote a variety of extremely effective articles and pamphlets about the colonists revolutionary cause against England.Thomas Paine was an Englishman working as a magazine editor in Philadelphia at the time of the Revolution. His pamphlet Common Sense, which appeared in 1776, was a force in encouraging the colonists to declare their independence from England. Then throughout the long and desperate war years he published a series of Crisis papers (from 1776 until 1783) to encourage the colonists to continue on with the struggle. The effectiveness of his writing was probably due to his emotional yet oversimplified depiction of the cause of the colonists against England as a classic struggle of good and evil.41. The paragraph preceding this passage most likely discusses a. how literature influence the population b. religious and moral literature c. literature supporting the cause of the American Revolution d. what made Thomas Paines literature successful42. The word fervor in line 2 is closest in meaning to a. war b. anxiety c. spirit d. action

43. The word time in line 3 could best be replaced by a. hour b. period c. appointment d. duration

44. It is implied in the passage that a. some writers in the American colonies supported England during the Revolution b. Franklin and Paine were the only writers to influence the Revolution c. because Thomas Paine was an Englishman, he supported England against the colonies d. authors who supported England did not remain in the colonies during the Revolution45. The pronoun he in line 8 refers to a. Thomas Paine b. Ben Franklin c. Ben Franklins brother d. Poor Richard46. The expression point of view in line 9 could best be replaced by a. perspective b. sight c. circumstance d. trait47. According to the passage, the tone of Poor Richards Almanac is a. pragmatic b. erudite c. theoretical d. scholarly

48. The word desperate in line 16 could best be replaced by a. unending b. hopeless c. strategic d. combative

49. Where in the passage does the author describe Thomas Paines style of writing? a. lines 4-6 b. lines 8-9 c. lines 14-15 d. lines 18-2050. The purpose of the passage is to a. discuss American literature in the first half of the eighteen century b. give biographical data on two American writers c. explain which authors supported the Revolution d. describe the literary influence during revolutionary AmericaKunci Jawaban :1.(C) 2.(B) 3.(A) 4.(C) 5.(A) 6.(B) 7.(D) 8.(A) 9.(B) 10.(B) 11.(B) 12.(A) 13.(D) 14.(C) 15.(A) 16.(D) 17.(B) 18.(C) 19.(D) 20.(D) 21.(C) 22.(B) 23.(A) 24.(C) 25.(D) 26(D) 27.(B) 28.(B) 29.(A) 30.(C) 31.(C) 32.(D) 33.(A) 34.(B) 35.(A) 36.(D) 37.(B) 38.(A) 39.(D) 40.(C) 41.(B) 42.(C) 43.(B) 44.(A) 45.(B) 46.(A) 47.(A) 48.(B) 49.(D) 50.(D) Demikian informasi mengenai Contoh Soal Test Toefl dan Kunci Jawabannya semoga dapat membantu Anda yang ingin mengikutinya.
