41.V. Reading Comprehension Please read the passages below. Each passage will be followed by several questions. Choose the option that best answers each of these questions on the basis of what is stated or implied in the passage. Passage A Andrew Carnegie soon turned to manufacturing iron and steel in Pittsburgh, taking full and grateful benefit of protective tariffs—although he had previously been an advocate of free trade and later, after he had his millions, would be one again. Each year he alternated between amassing his huge fortune in America and traveling to Britain. There he followed in the tradition of his grandfather by making radical speeches against all forms of special privilege. His rhetoric was noticeably tamer in Pittsburgh. Carnegie’s principles almost always seemed to bend to fit his interest. Yet, if he had been less principled, less impeded by such inhibitions as principle placed in his path through the nineteenth-century capitalistic jungle, it is quite probable that his legacy would have been less benign. After all, he did found and endow the Carnegie Corporation of New York, which in the first half-century after his death would make grants almost equal to his entire fortune while at the same time greatly increasing its capital. If he did not quite die poor, he made a game try at and probably worked harder at giving money away than he ever had at making it.

46.Passage B Perhaps the most striking quality of satiric literature is its freshness, its originality of perspective. Satire rarely offers original ideas. Instead it presents the familiar in a new form. Satirists do not offer the world new philosophies. What they do is look at familiar conditions from a perspective that makes these conditions seem foolish, harmful or affected. Satire jars us out of complacence into a pleasantly shocked realization that many of the values we unquestioningly accept are false. Don Quixote makes chivalry seem absurd. Brave New World ridicules the pretensions of science. A Modest Proposal dramatizes starvation by advocating cannibalism. None of these ideas is original. Chivalry was suspected before Cervantes, humanists objected to the claims of pure science before Aldous Huxley and people were aware of famine before Swift. It was not the originality of the idea that made these satires popular. It was the manner of expression the satiric method that made them interesting and entertaining Satires are read because they are aesthetically satisfying works of art, not because they are morally wholesome or ethically instructive. They are stimulating and refreshing because with commonsense briskness they brush away illusions and secondhand opinions. With spontaneous irreverence, satire rearranges perspectives, scrambles familiar objects into incongruous juxtaposition and speaks in a personal idiom instead of abstract platitude. Satire exists because there is a need for it. It has lived because readers appreciate a refreshing stimulus, an irreverent reminder that they lived in a world of platitudinous thinking, cheap moralizing, and foolish philosophy. Satire serves to prod people into an awareness of truth. Satire tends to remind people that much of what they see, hear, and read in popular media is sanctimonious, sentimental, and only partially true. Life resembles in only a slight degree the popular image of it. Soldiers rarely hold the ideals that movies attribute to them, nor do ordinary citizens devote their lives to unselfish service of community. Intelligent people know these things but tend to forget them when they do not hear them expressed.
