131. Close-up images of Mars by the Mariner 9 probe indicated networks of valleys that looked like the stream beds on Earth.

132. Forest fires feed on decades-long accumulations of debris and leap from the tops of young trees into the branches of mature trees. Fires that jump from treetop to treetop can be devastating.

This paragraph best supports the statement that

(a) forest fire damage is reduced in old-growth forests
(b) small trees should be cut down to prevent forest fires
(c) mature trees should be thinned out to prevent forest fires
(d) forest fires do the most damage in oldgrowth forests

133. Originating in the 1920s, the Pyramid scheme is one of the oldest con games going. Honest people are often pulled in, thinking the scheme is a legitimate investment enterprise. The first customer to ďfall forĒ the Pyramid scheme will actually make big money and will therefore persuade friends and relatives to join also. The chain then continues with the con artist who originated the scheme pocketing, rather than investing, the money. Finally, the pyramid collapses, but by that time, the scam artist will usually have moved out of town, leaving no forwarding address.

This paragraph best supports the statement that

(a) it is fairly easy to spot a Pyramid scheme in the making
(b) the first customer of a Pyramid scheme is the most gullible
(c) the people who set up Pyramid schemes are able to fool honest people
(d) the Pyramid scheme had its heyday in the 1920s, but itís making a comeback

A lucky few successfully parlay their fifteen minutes of fame into celebrity. The luckiest stars of Reality TV also reap huge financial rewards for acts including eating large insects, marrying someone they barely know, and revealing their innermost thoughts to millions of people.

This paragraph best supports the statement that

(a) the stars of Reality TV are interested in being rich and famous
(b) Reality TV is the best thing that has happened to network television in a long time
(c) for Reality TV stars, fame will last only as long as their particular television show
(d) traditional dramas and sitcoms are being replaced by Reality TV programming at an alarming rate
