The following exercises are multiple choice. There are four alternatives to each exercise. You are to
select the one alternative that is correct and indicate your choice by CIRCLING the letter corresponding
to the correct choice directly on the exercise booklet. This is a self-graded lesson exercise, but DO NOT
look up the correct answer from the lesson solution sheet until you have responded to the question. To
do so will not help you to learn this material and your final examination score will tend to be lower than
if you had followed the recommended procedure.
