(1) After my interview with these four young people, I reflected on the quiet sense of "difference" I sensed with many of these Upward Bound students. (2) As a college teacher who has also taught seventh-grade science, I have some experience with the faces and attitudes of adolescence. (3) Upward Bound students had those faces. (4) There was the puzzled coping with changing bodies—hormone hell. (5) There was ambivalence about "authority figures" and uncertainties about whether or not the world would have some place for them. (6) There were the studied rationalizations about lapses on homework assignments, moments of despair, adolescent angst—all of that. (7) But there was also that "difference." (8) Maybe it's one part knowing people care and one part beginning to trust the future. (9) I wasn't sure.

    Below is the last stanza of a poem, "Dover Beach," written in 1876 by Matthew Arnold.

       Ah, love, let us be true
       To one another! for the world, which seems
       To lie before us like a land of dreams,
       So various, so beautiful, so new,
       Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
       Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
       And we are here as on a darkling plain
    Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
    Where ignorant armies clash by night.

    Which one of the following statements best characterizes Arnold's view of the world?


    A. The world is just a dream.

    B. The world is a confusing and hostile place.

    C. The world is made for lovers.

    D. The world is not a beautiful place.

    I think the answer is B it makes the most sence to me, do u have a opinion?

    According to science, the fastest speed possible for anything is the speed of light. The speed of light is about 186,000 miles per second. That means that in one minute, light travels 11,160,000 miles. The star nearest Earth is the Sun. It's about 93,000,000 miles from Earth. Therefore, it takes sunlight about eight minutes to travel to Earth. So, when you see the Sun, you aren't seeing it as it is. You're seeing it as it was eight minutes ago. Since the stars are much farther away than our Sun, imagine how far back in time you're seeing them! It's obvious that humans will never travel to planets around even the nearest stars.

    2. Which statement taken from the paragraph is most likely to be opinion rather than fact?

    A. Humans will never travel to planets around even the nearest stars.
    B. The star nearest Earth is the Sun.
    C. When you see the Sun, you aren't seeing it as it is.
    D. The fastest speed possible for anything is the speed of light.
