TRANSCRIPT

Some actors and rock stars are paid almost 100 times as much per year as school teachers. Not to downgrade the role of entertainment in our lives, but these people are not the valuable social resource that educators are. As another example, professional athletes earn vastly more than the nation’s firefighters. Again, there is little doubt that the lower paid group contributes a more vital function to communities. Finally, dress designers, who can make up to $50,000 for a gown, far out-earn police officers, whose very presence makes our cities and towns livable.

Based on this passage, the earning power in our society:

[A]. is subject to staggering inflation.

[B]. does not relate to one’s usefulness in society.

[C]. is highest among those whose achievements are the greatest.

[D]. should be highest among actors and rock.

TRANSCRIPT

A new atomic clock being developed for navigation satellites will perform better than previous devices. The clock, which incorporates a hydrogen maser, will use a new microwave cavity design to provide a compact and lightweight package, and new electronic techniques to maintain long-term stability. The clock can provide precise navigation information because it is stable to one second in three million years. The differences in the time when signals from four satellites arrive at one location can be used to calculate that position to within a few yards.

From the passage, it can be inferred that which of the following characteristics of the clock mentioned will be most impressive?

[A]. Its compact size

[B]. Its weight[C]. Its accuracy
