1. Which of the key reading skills for reading informational articles involves looking for key words and phrases in a text before reading the text?

a. identifying main idea and supporting details
b. previewing
c. skimming and scanning
d. understanding text structures


2. Read the following paragraph from “A Tremendous Trade”:

It might not seem fair, but in every profession, workers earn whatever people are willing to pay them. Baseball is no exception. Teams compete to offer as much money as they can to players who are among the league’s best, like Rodriguez. Because baseball is such a popular sport, watched by ticket-buying fans at stadiums and on television by millions, a team can earn many millions of dollars each season. Teams use much of their earnings to pay their stars’ salaries because the best players attract the most fans to games. For example, soon after the Yankees announced that A-Rod would be coming to town, the team sold $2 million worth of tickets.

The writer states that the best players attract the most fans to games. What evidence does he offer to support this?

a. Baseball is a popular sport that attracts millions of fans who watch the games on television.
b. Shortly after the Yankees announced A-Rod was joining the team, they sold $2 million in tickets.
