Praxis I Reading Practice Test Question:

 

Read the passage below and answer the question that follows.
 

Political economy consists in simply the production and preservation…of useful or pleasurable things. The farmer who cuts his hay at the right time; the builder who lays good bricks in well-tempered mortar, etc. But mercantile economy signifies the accumulation in the hands of individuals, of legal claim upon, or power over, the labor of others…
 

The idea of riches among active men in civilized nations generally refers to such commercial wealth; and in estimating their possessions, they rather calculate the value of their horses and fields by the number of guineas they could get for them, than the value of their guineas by the number of horses and fields they could buy with them.
 

Real property is of little use to its owner, unless together with it he has commercial power over labor. Thus suppose a man has a large estate of fruitful land with rich beds of gold in its gravel; countless herds of cattle; houses, and gardens and storehouses; but suppose, after all, that he could get no servants? In order that he may be able to have servants, someone in his neighborhood must be poor and in want of his gold or his corn. Assume that no one is in want of either, and that no servants are to be had. He must therefore bake his own bread, make his own clothes, plow his own ground… His gold will be as useful to him as any other yellow pebbles on his estate… He must lead a life of severe and common labor to procure even ordinary comforts.
 

          --Mohandas Ghandi, “Paraphrase of Ruskin’s Unto This Last.”
 

According to the view presented in the passage, if a landowner possessed hundreds of fertile acres, livestock, and harvesting equipment, but there were no citizens in need of employment, he:

          A. Would not be able to run his farm, and would become impoverished and starve.

          B. Would not have the resources necessary to profit in a system of mercantile economy.

          C. Would still be considered rich, but would have trouble finding affordable labor and servants.

          D. Would be able to run a farm, but would have to work very hard, and would not make the same profit he previously

          made.

          E. Would still be considered rich in civilized nations, but would not be considered affluent.

Praxis I Writing Practice Test Question:

 

Directions:   In each of the following sentences some part of the sentence or the entire sentence is underlined. Beneath each sentence you will find five ways of writing the underlined part. The first of these repeats the original, but the other four are different. If you think the original sentence is better than any of the suggested changes, you should choose A; otherwise you should mark one of the other choices. Select the best answer and completely fill in the corresponding lettered space on the answer sheet with a heavy, dark mark so that you cannot see the letter.

This is a test of correctness and effectiveness of expression. In choosing answers, follow the requirements of standard written English; that is, pay attention to acceptable usage in grammar, diction (choice of words), sentence construction, and punctuation. Choose the answer that expresses most effectively what is presented in the original sentence; this answer should be clear and exact, without awkwardness, ambiguity, or redundancy.
