7. This passage would most likely appear in a
- A. short story
- B. novel
- C. newspaper
- D. engineering journal
Correct Answer: E
E is correct. This informational article is most likely to be found in a textbook. Choices A and B are easily eliminated because the passage is fact, not fiction. Choice C is incorrect because the passage tells of events that happened long ago, not timely current events as would be reported in a newspaper article. The passage does not describe the engineering aspects of the Statue, so choice D is not a likely choice.
