With a little over a month left and spring break starting for most, I thought we can have a thread to help prepare for the AP test. The thread will work like this: POST a multiple choice AP-TYPE question--one that SOUNDS AP that DOES NOT come from a review book (please try to do this)that everyone has already seen, i.e., like one you might have had on a midterm or final--and give the ANSWER. I realize that the answer will be close to the question but try anyway to leave it one or two lines after the question so we will not see the answer immediately (so scroll down carefully). Okay, I'll start with a couple from my midterm in fall:

1. What political leader endorsed the philosophy that the political and social future of the U.S. would be more secure if the U.S. emphasized agriculture instead of industry?
A. Thomas Jefferson
B. Alexander Hamilton
C. Henry Clay
D. Daniel Webster
E. Eugene V. Debs

Answer = A

2. George Washington once said, "There are combustibles in every state which a spark might set afire." What event in American history was he describing?
A. Election of 1796
B. Stamp Act
C. Shays' Rebellion
D. Newburgh conspiracy
E. Whiskey Rebellion

Answer = C
