By Tired_Student (Tired_Student) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 06:18 pm: Edit

Parents' comments about the rug I thought it was that less fancy things had their uses for practicality.

misinterpretations: I thought that errors or somethign to do with errors were hard to avoid, because the passage stated that even Da Vinci had problems with misinterpretations.

And the Writing Fiction part: I don't remember clearly, but i did not read anything about Fiction in the entire passage, thats why i avoided choose that answer.

Purpose of season metaphors:enumerate symbols? Was that the choice which showed that the symbols were known by most people in Japan?

By the way, in the short passages, were there blurbs?

By Godilali (Godilali) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 06:28 pm: Edit

yeah, the parents comments was practicality

By Cherrybarry (Cherrybarry) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 06:32 pm: Edit

Parent's comments: I put down that the linoleum had practical uses (could be cleaned easily).

Misinterpretations: I put down that errors were hard to avoid, since even Da Vinci, who was "ahead of his time" could not escape from them.

Writing Fiction: I remember the passage being about writing fiction.

Season metaphors: I think the answer was "enumerate symbols known by most people in Japan.

By Cherrybarry (Cherrybarry) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 06:35 pm: Edit

For the #1 on the Japanese poetry CR, was it "to describe that project that led to disappointment"?

By Godilali (Godilali) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 08:50 pm: Edit

yes it was cherrybarry

By Dannyferizzle (Dannyferizzle) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 09:26 pm: Edit

Answer to 1.8 was 7 -- if 6/7k = 6 then k = 1/7 therefore 1/k = 7.

Also-- The answer to the one about what were the effects of the ecomomic success, the answer was a greater disolactoin between the employer and the worker which was said directly after the line reference.

By Billiam2 (Billiam2) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 09:38 pm: Edit

What do you mean by confirmed? Confirmed with the board?

4.24) Purpose of passage - Answer: To show uses of lichen (C)

Is that even a question? The question i remember is 'in the passage, lychen are described primarily in terms of.." and the answer was 'practical uses'. Are we talking about the same thing?

4.31) misinterpretations - Answer: influences from ancients

We came to the conclusion that it was commonly held beliefs. Is this the same answer?

And very good job mlin.

By Zbjz15 (Zbjz15) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:00 pm: Edit

Can someone give the answer choices for 3.1 and 3.?, thanks. Also, can we discuss the sentence completion 2.1 again? I put premature ... rigid.

By Billiam2 (Billiam2) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:03 pm: Edit

And the missing question in the DaVinci passage is: "What is NOT shown by the example of davinci saying 'the earth does not move' in his journal?" I think the answer was 'he collaborates with other scientists'

And an analogy that is missing is flummox:confused::bewitched:spellbound, i think.

By Billiam2 (Billiam2) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:07 pm: Edit

i agree with the answer given in 2.1 by mlin.

I want my scores!

By Insanity (Insanity) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:17 pm: Edit

ME TOO!

By Zbjz15 (Zbjz15) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:20 pm: Edit

What is the answer to 4.22? For the doctors one, I thought it was premature and rigid, because he tried "new" techniques too early so the docotrs kept everything rigid. No one agrees?

By 1212 (1212) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:27 pm: Edit

let us talk about semantics
what does it mean when its "confirmed"?

By Toomuch2say87 (Toomuch2say87) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:30 pm: Edit

OMEN:PRESAGE :: SATIRE:DERIDE (Synonyms) is wrong ...presage means to predetermine ... not omen haha

also for Quant Comp fill ins, why can't that one wiht probability be 2.8 It said GREATER THAN X...if its 2.8, greater than x still doesn't include 2.8...

By Nexusgeo (Nexusgeo) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:33 pm: Edit

Toomuch, look up dictionary before you say that.

Presage:
1. To indicate or warn of in advance; portend.
2. To have a presentiment of.
3. To foretell or predict.

By Tired_Student (Tired_Student) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:33 pm: Edit

CR cannot be confirmed, only agreed upon.

The math and SC and analogies can because its straight vocabulary and there is no ambiguity with vocabulary.

I still think the misinterpretations was "that errors were hard to avoid" no matter how "confirmed" and how much of a consenus this board has reached.

By Tired_Student (Tired_Student) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:37 pm: Edit

This may sound stupid, but I dont remember whether or not the short paragraph CR section had analogies, and if it didn't, were there 78 questions for Verbal?

By Qutiee (Qutiee) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:40 pm: Edit

where did you get all your answers from?

By 1212 (1212) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:42 pm: Edit

rofl it did mi estudiante cansado, 78 questions the usual

By Tired_Student (Tired_Student) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:43 pm: Edit

hehe "my tired student"

So how did they make up for the rest of the missing analogies?

By 1212 (1212) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:45 pm: Edit

4.10) girl a source of exasperation - Answer: synonym for stubborn (B)

i dont remember that question, can some one refresh my memory

By Delacroix (Delacroix) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:50 pm: Edit

(Billiam2) : I also remember a question about how lichens are described rather than the purpose of hte passage. I also put: practical uses. I also agree with the Da Vinci one about what the quote did not show: it didn't show that he shared discoveries with other scientists.

Were there only 30 questions for the first verbal section? I'm freaking out...I hope I didn't miss any at the end!!

By Billiam2 (Billiam2) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:51 pm: Edit

recalcitrant was answer. It was a sentence completion... dont remember much else about it.

By Delacroix (Delacroix) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:51 pm: Edit

Did anyone have the analogy "Toga: Garb"? If not, I'm hoping that section was experimental.
Also, anyone had a short passage about mercury and food supply contamination?

By Delacroix (Delacroix) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:53 pm: Edit

Yes, it was recalcitrant. Also, I think the CR for the immigrants was that "practicality can be advantageous."

By Energy1 (Energy1) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:55 pm: Edit

Is it just me or does everyone else try to encourage themself to believe that these so-called confirmed answers maybe wrong when it contradicts your answer?

Hehe. I did not make good choices in verbal :(

Oh yea, how can a critical reading answer be truly confirmed? Unless people who have gotten 800 on verbal consistently can approve of the answer?

By Nexusgeo (Nexusgeo) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 10:55 pm: Edit

Does anyone know what -2 in non-experimental Math will get me in THIS test. Just your guesses will
be appreciated, thanks.

By 1212 (1212) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 11:01 pm: Edit

ok i got that right thanks all, yea practically can be advantageous is what i had too, i might be the first Asian-Indian to get a higher SAT verbal score than math.
Did anyone have the analogy "Toga: Garb"? - must be experimental

as for missing analogies, i think there was 19 like always, this thread lists 10 of them, my memory is starting to dissipate so im not sure which ones are missing.
but on 4.11) ARM:ELBOW :: LEG:KNEE (Endpoints) , are we sure that was the order i think it might have been ELBOW:ARM or KNEE:LEG, it just seemed to me at the time, they didnt match, i think i put knuckles:fingers or something. Oh well i can afford to miss that question i guess

By Crazylicious (Crazylicious) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 11:34 pm: Edit

Does anyone remember the last question in first math section (I think...) It had a triangle, divided into 2 triangles... and it wanted to know what the length of the base was. It gave something like 8radical3 and I know the left side triangle's base was 24 and it was just a matter of finding the length of the base of the right side triangle... does anybody remember what I am talking about?

(I know it is not an experimental question b/c my experimental was verbal)

By 1212 (1212) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 11:37 pm: Edit

32

By Crazylicious (Crazylicious) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 11:46 pm: Edit

1212 > Thank you... Whew... I was totally frustrated on that question and had narrowed it down to 32 (E) and something else... I bubbled in E at the last second.

RESPONSES TO POSTS

Billiam2: Thanks a bunch.

Qutie: I collected them from the main topic as well as various SAT-related chats. It's amazing how much we've done no more than 36 hours after the test.

Zbjz15: I got the same answer as well. I've been getting split responses on this one (either A or B), so that's why it's unconfirmed.

By Billiam2 (Billiam2) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 11:52 pm: Edit

delacroix: usually the 1st passage has 30, it's the 2nd one that usually has 35 .

can anyone explain the external trappings reflect intreanl to me? i couldve sworn that it was that simple furniture would help conformity and reduce individuality, it was the whole tone of the "middle-house" workers

By Soulstar (Soulstar) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 12:16 am: Edit

for math problem 3.2, did they actually state that the lines were parallel? because i dont think they did and if they didnt its D.

Wow, I dont remember the FLUMMOX:CONFUSED analogy at all. What were all of the answer choices?

By Zbjz15 (Zbjz15) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 07:30 am: Edit

Can someone with a good memory right out the sentence completion for the 1890 doctors? I want to try to figure that one out again.
We need to settles some more math questions. Heres number 24 on the MCs, I think it is real. -11< x-y <13

By Delacroix (Delacroix) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 10:12 am: Edit

Hey, for the second to last question on the immigrant passage, wasn't it about why the parents believed what they got through hard work was excellent and anything more was luxury? Isn't the answer to that one somethign like "they were matching their goals and wants to their reality? Or am I getting this mixed up.

By Billiam2 (Billiam2) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 10:48 am: Edit

guys, there is no point in asking the same question in 2 separate threads. People will read both threads.

By Dannyferizzle (Dannyferizzle) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 12:06 pm: Edit

YOU HAVE TO REVISE IT AGAIN, THE ANSWER TO FIND 1/k WAS DEFINITELY 7 NOT 1/7--LOOK AT YOUR OWN PROBLEM IT WAS 6/7k=6 therefore k=1/7, so 1/k must equal 7!!!

By Akid4 (Akid4) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 12:23 pm: Edit

If I remember correctly, it was (6/7)k=6 so 1/k=1/7. I'm pretty sure all answers to that one were fractions anyway.

By Billiam2 (Billiam2) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 12:26 pm: Edit

no, it is 7. I dont think thats the right question.

By Akid4 (Akid4) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 12:33 pm: Edit

Do you remember if both 1/7 and 7 were an answer to that one? I might just be confused.

By Sssran87 (Sssran87) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 01:22 pm: Edit

Now that he mentions it, 7 IS correct, not 1/7.

By Mlin (Mlin) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 01:41 pm: Edit

Update 3. Please try to resolve the eight unconfirmed/disputed questions first.

Yes, we do need more coverage of the math sections. Unfortunately, they don't stand out in my memory well, but if you remember any I'd be glad to answer it.

I recall quite clearly that the problem was

If 6/7k = 6, what is 1/k?

k=7, so 1/k = 1/7.

I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure. The answer choice I selected was (A).

By Dannyferizzle (Dannyferizzle) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 03:17 pm: Edit

Look at your math there, its completely wrong--if k=7 then you would have 6/49 = 6-- idont think so k=1/7 so k = 7.

I thikn the answer choice was E or D.

By Blahdude (Blahdude) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 03:20 pm: Edit

the question was definitely asking for 1/k, so i think mlin is right

By Billiam2 (Billiam2) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 04:27 pm: Edit

Mlin: is it possible I am thinking of a different question? I remember a problem that had 3 steps: It was something like 8/9 of 9, then take 7/8 of that. Those arent the numbers, but that is the one that I remember putting 7 down for. I dont remember a question like '6/7k = 6, what is 1/k'.

By Nutriamorada (Nutriamorada) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 04:44 pm: Edit

think of it as (6/7)k, not 6/7k

(6/7)k = 42/7 (adding common demoninator)
6k = 42
k = 7

(6/7)(7) = 6

it works!

By Haithman (Haithman) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 05:12 pm: Edit

Yeah but we're not sure if it asked for just (k) or (1/k). All that math was unnecessary though...
If (6/7)k = 6, then k must equal 7..

By Smartaleck123 (Smartaleck123) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 05:22 pm: Edit

Haithman, do you think the scale might allow for -1 wrong and still 800... like 800 800 whatever whatever... etc etc

By Billiam2 (Billiam2) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 05:25 pm: Edit

Answer my question. Is the problem i am talking about a different one? It had 3 steps to it, not just 1; but it was similar, and 7 was the answer. I think the question asked for 1/k, but I got k=1/7, i think.

By Akid4 (Akid4) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 06:31 pm: Edit

I may be wrong but I think that safeguard:protect went with lampoon:ridicule.

By Jaug1 (Jaug1) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 06:39 pm: Edit

ok. although I did not that the SAT I test I can answer the question about 1/k 110% certain. I took AP Calculus this year so I am fairly good at math. Here is how the problem goes (there are 2 different solutions because I dont know the parenthsis order):

a) 6/(7k)=6
k = 1/7 (1/7 x 7=1, 6/1=6)
1/k = 7

b) (6/7)k = 6
k = 7 (7/7=1, 6x1=6)
1/k = 1/7

Whatever is the correct way to view the problem there are your answers. Hope that clears up confusion.

By Zbjz15 (Zbjz15) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 06:42 pm: Edit

No, Eulogy:honor was lampoon to ridicule.

By Tired_Student (Tired_Student) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 06:51 pm: Edit

safeguard:protect::Satire:deride

Safeguard is something used to protect such as Satire is someething used to deride.

By Zbjz15 (Zbjz15) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 07:33 pm: Edit

Just to put another spin on the stepson question. A stepson is a son from another marriage. The old scientists and new scientists could sort of be like two sets of parents. Therefore it could make sense that the stepson in the passage had divided loyalties between the old scientists and the new scientists. Thanks for reading.

By Zbjz15 (Zbjz15) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 07:38 pm: Edit

On top of which I don't see how the term stepson relates to not understanding.

3.19) Thread required to make 64x10 - Answer: 1280

can you explain that please?

By Akid4 (Akid4) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 07:59 pm: Edit

I'm not sure I would interpret "stepson" too literally. I considered the same logic you did. However, the passage didn't mention divided loyalties. IT talked about how the scientists devoted themselves to the old teachings. Da Vinci was really the only one who followed the new teachings of experimentation. So I think that the "stepsons" didn't have a full understanding of nature since they were relying on what others learned instead of discovering for themselves.

By Blahdude (Blahdude) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 08:29 pm: Edit

I agree with Akid4, the stepson was the term used the describe the scientists who were not necessarily understanding of Nature that is why they were not the sons of nature, but rather the stepsons. Also, the passage did not talk of divided loyalties especially to the "modern" scientists. The only ones mentioned are the ones of the new millenium (newton etc.)

By Zbjz15 (Zbjz15) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 08:35 pm: Edit

Where is Delacroix when you need him?

By Tired_Student (Tired_Student) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 09:00 pm: Edit

I agree with Akid4 because no where in the passage does it speak of dividing loyalties. The old scientists weren't loyal to the old ways, they were merely ignorant to the new techniques which Da Vinci was way ahead of his time with.

By Haithman (Haithman) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 09:03 pm: Edit

By Delacroix (Delacroix) on Tuesday, June 08, 2004 - 07:03 pm: Edit

I'm here (Zbjz15)! I'm not sure what you need right now, but perhaps its backup for the stepson question. I agree with your reasoning for that question...it makes perfect sense. The question specifically asked why he used the term "stepson", so the answer has to involve the the "stepson" relationship. Therefore, a stepchild may feel divided loyalties or feelings towards their former parent and the new family he or she is assimilated into. The scientists were in a transition between the old, ancient way of thinking and newer, more original and experimental sciences. Thus, referring to "stepson" is characterizing the struggle between those two loyalties. Hope this helps!

By Zbjz15 (Zbjz15) on Tuesday, June 08, 2004 - 07:10 pm: Edit

Yea that is what I needed, backup for the stepson question. The only thing that destroys our argument is if it said in the passage "devoted themselves fully to the old teachings" like some people claim it says. I don't remember this but perhaps I am suffering from selective memory.

By Delacroix (Delacroix) on Tuesday, June 08, 2004 - 07:13 pm: Edit

yeah...oh well...there's not much we can do now. I'm really hoping for a generous verbal curve since I did some stupid educated guessing (an oxymoron, I know) on a couple analogies...sigh.

By Billiam2 (Billiam2) on Tuesday, June 08, 2004 - 07:33 pm: Edit

it's not true that the scientists were "in a transition between the old, ancient way of thinking and newer, more original and experimental sciences", which was the crux of the passage. The point was that Da Vinci was ahead of his time and was therefore unlike his contemporaries who were stuck in the ancient way of thinking.

This is why I don't believe that to be the answer.

By Delacroix (Delacroix) on Tuesday, June 08, 2004 - 07:42 pm: Edit

Hey,
Someone put this link, which details the experimental sections for the June SAT:

By Zbjz15 (Zbjz15) on Tuesday, June 08, 2004 - 08:41 pm: Edit

Write the questions you thought were experimental and I can tell you if I had them or not. I had a math experimental so any I had were real for verbal.

I don't understand what is so weird. Akid1 is listing off analogies from his experimental section. There is no question that those are experimental. There is more than 1 experimental section so that is why you may not have seen it.

By Number9 (Number9) on Tuesday, June 08, 2004 - 09:38 pm: Edit

YOu'd figure more people would mention those, instead of the same ones that were seen on every one else's verbal experimental section...

There was a fat triangle with a height of 8(radical 3). Then it was divided into two smaller triangles, both 30-60-90 of different size. No matter which side the bigger triangle of the two is on, you will get the same answer.

Using properties of 30-60-90 triangle:
8(radical 3) * (radical 3) = 24
8(radical 3) / (radical 3) = 8

add em up = 32

For me the third section math was experimental. It was a 25 question set. Thank god because I couldn't answer 2 questions on that section.
