7 2 A 2-point response makes a reasonable inference about people who search for gold and provides text-based information to support the inference. Example: People who search for gold need to be willing to take risks. People traveled from all over the world to try to find gold. 1 A 1-point response makes a reasonable inference about people who search for gold OR Provides text-based information that would support a reasonable inference.
