5 If we want to stop prejudice and hate in the world,
6 we must first recognize that we share more in common
7 than we like to think and that our differences are
8 mainly trivial and superficial.
Based on lines 5-8, which of the following statements likely describes the author's attitude toward racial discrimination?
A. It is uniquely an American occurrence
B. It is based on the vast contrasts between various races in society
C. It is based on ignorance
D. It is a growing trend
E. It will always be ignored
从这段话中可以推断出，C项是正确的。文中提到："we must recognize..."，就表明现在我们还没有意识到这个问题。来看一下，其他几项为什么是错误的：
17 She cautiously opened the door, peeking
18 around the corner for any onlookers. Feeling
19 uneasy, she entered the room, crept to the safe,
20 and removed the documents.
做下一题之前，问自己一个问题："What is going on here?"（这里发生了什么？）。很显然，这几句话是叙事句，描写一位女性想要预先拿走这些文件，你应在脑中记下下面的几点：
• 附近可能有人("peeking... onlookers")
It can be inferred that she is taking the documents:
A. With the permission of the owners
B. To commit a criminal act
C. Under a great deal of stress and anxiety
D. Without knowledge of the information they contain
E. With the consent of the original author
正确答案是C。文中的 "uneasy"就说明了这位女士"under a great deal of stress and anxiety"。其它选项文中并没有提到，或是根据过度推断得出的。
