Read this excerpt from a commercial. Hurry down to Manny’s Mattress Mart to take advantage of our special spring savings. We are selling all remaining inventory to make room for a new summer shipment, and we are selling all of our mattresses for $99.

Which of the following is composed in the narrative mode? F Clutching the pristine pair of sneakers to my chest, I nervously picked my way through the clearance center.

My parents think I am a little too obsessed with clipping coupons, but I do not see why anyone should spend more money than is absolutely necessary.

Read this excerpt from an article. Native trees grow naturally in an area, as opposed to having been introduced during modern settlement. Planting native trees makes a great deal of sense for many reasons. Native trees are much more likely to thrive in an area, while non-native species often will die. Also, such trees usually are preferred by the wildlife commonly found in an area. Finally, native trees are part of the heritage of an area. They help keep alive the sense of what the land looked like before modern development began. Which of the following is an accurate paraphrase of this excerpt? F Native trees grow well, local wildlife favors them, and the trees preserve the heritage of an area. G Native trees always have been a part of the landscape of an area, and they always should be.
