Question: 32

9. In making the mural

  • A. the shades of tile that the Foscato plant had in stock were not adequate.
  • B. 1,412 shades were needed.
  • C. half a million colors were used.
  • D. over 500 shades of color were used.

Correct Answer: A


The correct answer is (A). This is a difficult question requiring concentration on the meanings of statements. The selection tells us that the Foscato plant had 1,400 shades in stock yet had to send to Italy for 12 special shades, but it does not say that all 1,400 shades in stock were used.
