Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
Rolf, Ernst and Johan were three brothers who lived by a large lake. It was full of fish. Their grandfather had taught them how to fish for their supper. They often went fishing and brought back many fish to cook.
Rolf was the best fisherman. He would always catch more fish than his brothers and he always got one before the others. Ernst was the best at cooking the fish. He always knew exactly when to take them off the fire. Johan was the best at eating the fish. He could probably eat more fish than both of his brothers put together, and still have room for more.
One day, the three brothers went to the lake in their boat. It was a small wooden rowing boat. They took it in turns to row to the middle of the lake. When they got to the centre they started fishing. Soon Rolf felt a fish bite the end of his fishing line. He started to try to get the fish out of the water. The fish was strong and pulled hard at the other end of the line. Then, suddenly, the line snapped. That was the first and only day that Rolf caught fewer fish than his brothers.

AMore than Rolf
BNone at all
COne fish each
DOne between them

People who are antagonistic, exploitative and generally disagreeable are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories, according to recent study from a UO researcher.
Cameron Kay, a doctoral candidate in the Department of Psychology, found that people who possess personality traits known as the "Dark Tetrad" are more likely to believe Princess Diana's death was orchestrated by the British royal family, that the moon landing was faked, and that alien spacecraft are being stored at Area 51, among other conspiracy theories. Kay's study was published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences.
The traits o f the Dark Tetrad are Machiavellianism (manipulativeness and cynicism); narcissism (vanity and self obsession); psychopathy callousness); and sadism (cruelty and abusiveness). Most people have elements callousness); and sadism (cruelty and abusiveness). Most people have elements of some of these traits, Kay said.
In plain terms, it seems like disagreeable people, who score high in these traits, are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories," Kay said. "They are prone to odd beliefs. They don't feel like they are in control of their lives. They are robbed of their agency and have an innate distrust of other people and organizations like the government."
To conduct his study, Kay recruited 500 undergraduate students at the UO to complete a one-hour survey designed to measure the traits in question as well as belief in conspiracy theories (26 students were ultimately excluded). The survey also measured tendencies to have unusual beliefs, to feel a lack of control over one's future, to desire control, to trust others, and to feel a need to be unique.

Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
If you've read about the latest health trends, you may know that sugar is being listed as a major contributor to how overweight and unhealthy some people are. If you know people who have considered juicing, fasting or cleansing in an effort to lose weight or improve their well-being, you're probably aware that cutting out foods is not effective as a long-term lifestyle approach to healthy eating.
There is one kind of diet that is worthwhile, according to some experts, reducing sugar in your diet can help you drop pounds, improve your health and even give you more beautiful, radiant skin.
"Early on in my practice, when I would notice that people had real addiction to sugar, we'd start trying to wean them of sugar or limit their intake or eat in moderation, but the word 'moderation' it never worked," food expert Alpert said.
"What was so successful in getting my clients to kick their sugar habit was to go cold turkey which means to totally cut out sugars. When they did, I wasn't their favourite person, but the number one positive effect was that it recalibrated their palate," she said.
For the duration of the three day sugar detox, Alpert recommends no added sugars, but also no fruits, no starchy vegetables (such as corn, peas, sweet potatoes and butternut squash), no dairy, no grains and no alcohol. "You're basically eating protein, vegetables and healthy fats."
For example, breakfast can include three eggs, any style; lunch can include up to 6 ounces of poultry, fish or tofu and a green salad, and dinner is basically a larger version of lunch, though steamed vegetables, such as broccoli, kale and spinach can be eaten in place of salad. Snacks include a handful of nuts and sliced peppers with hummus. Beverages include water, unsweetened tea and black coffee.
Though they don't contribute calories, artificial sweeteners are not allowed on the plan, either. "These little pretty colored packets pack such a punch of sweetness, and that's how our palates get dulled and immune and less reactive to what sweetness really is," Alpert said. It now seems that consuming artificial sweeteners causes people not only to store more fat, they also end up overeating later on to compensate for the increased energy storage.
