Data Sufficiency – 15 Minutes
Directions: Each of the questions below is followed by two statements labeled (1) and (2), in which certain data are given. In these questions you do not actually have to compute the answer, but rather you have to decide whether the data given in the statements are sufficient for answering the question. Use the data given in the statements plus your knowledge of mathematics and everyday facts (such as the number of days in July)
(A) If statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked
(B) If statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked
(C) If BOTH statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question asked, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient
(D) If EACH statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked
(E) If statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question asked, and additional data specific to the problem are needed

Directed Memory (Reading Recall) – 35 Minutes
Directions: In the test you will be given a period of time for the study of several extended prose passages. Then, without looking back at the passages, you will answer questions based on their contents. The following exercise is much shorter than those appearing on the test, but it illustrates the general nature of the passages and the questions. Remember, though, that on the test you will not be allowed to refer back to the passage.
Soon after the First World War began, public attention was concentrated on the spectacular activities of the submarine, and the question was raised more pointedly than ever whether or not the day of the battleship had ended. Naval men conceded the importance of the U-boat and recognized the need for defense against it, but they still placed their confidence in big guns and big ships. The German naval victory at Coronel, off Chile, and the British victories at the Falkland Islands and in the North Sea convinced the experts that the fortune still favored superior guns (even though speed played an important part in these battles); and, as long as British dreadnoughts kept the German High Seas Fleet immobilized, the battleship remained in the eyes of naval men the key to naval power.
Public attention was focused on the submarine because
(A) it had immobilized the German High Seas Fleet.
(B) it had played a major role in the British victories at the Falkland Islands and in the North Sea
(C) it had taken the place of the battleship
(D) of its spectacular activities
(E) of its superior speed
