The answer is D.  There have to be at least 72 members for that many to be in attendance in the spring.  Not everybody showed up at the other meetings.

This is a good example of how important reading the questions carefully is.  It also shows you how the SAT is often very simple math that requires you to do more thinking than calculating!  Don’t get in a hurry and use Pillar IV: Focus on the Question (Video #1).

Let’s see what the ACT folks have for us this morning.

ACT Question of the Day: Use your “back” button to return to my website after reading the ACT Question of the Day.

The answer is J.  Common sense answers this question.  How long are shadows in the morning compared to noon in everyday life?  Much longer.  That’s answer J.

The ACT test never has science that is contrary to the real world.  This is a perfect example of that fact.  Use what you know (Pillar III: Use What You Know–Video #1) to support your answers for the Science Test.  However, be sure you don’t use prior knowledge on the Reading Test.

Enjoy your Sunday.  Make it a sunny one, regardless of the weather!
