PHIL 447 DeVry Week 1 Quiz Latest

Question 1. Question : (TCOs 2 and 3) In Chapter 1, we learned how to recognize the main issue in a passage. Consider the following example:

“We have little choice but to concentrate our energy-policy efforts on renewable resources because we don’t have any idea how much longer fossil fuel sources will last.”

The main issue is whether or not

  • renewable resources will replace fossil fuels.
  • fossil fuels will last for the indefinite future.
  • we should concentrate our energy-policy efforts on renewable resources.
  • renewable resources are a practical alternative to fossil fuels.

Question 2. Question : (TCOs 2 and 3) In Chapter 1, we learned how to recognize the main issue in a passage. Consider the following example:

“Sure, some of the hotdoggers get good grades in Professor Bubacz’s class. But my guess is that, if Algernon takes it, all it’ll get him is flunked out.”

The main issue is whether or not

  • hotdoggers get good grades in Professor Bubacz’s class.
  • Algernon’s taking Professor Bubacz’s class will get him flunked out.
  • few students make good grades in Professor Bubacz’s class.
  • Algernon doesn’t make good grades in most of his classes.

Question 3. Question : (TCOs 1 and 2) In Chapter 1, we learned how to recognize the main issue in a passage. Consider the following example:

“What we believe, we think is reasonable, and because of that agree to it. What we disbelieve, we think is unreasonable, and because of that disagree with it. Belief, therefore, and not reason, is the principle means by which most people come by their opinions.”

The main issue is whether or not

  • belief is a more solid means than reason to form our opinions.
  • belief is the principle means by which most people come to their opinions.
  • reason is a more solid means than belief to form our opinions.
  • reason along with belief is the best means for forming our opinions.

Question 4. Question : (TCOs 1 and 2) In Chapter 1, we learned how to recognize the main issue in a passage. Consider the following example:

“The TV show The Sopranos might have been a pretty good series without the profanity that occurred all the way through it. But without the profanity, it would not have been believable. Those people just talk that way. If you have the characters speaking Shakespearean English or middle-class suburban English, then nobody is going to pay any attention to the message because nobody will see it as realistic. It’s true, of course, that like many other programs with some offensive feature whether it’s bad language, sex, or whatever, it will never appeal to the squeamish.”

The main issue is whether or not

  • programs with offensive features can appeal to the squeamish.
  • programs with bad language, sex, or violence are popular.
  • The Sopranos would have been popular without the bad language.
  • The Sopranos would have been believable without the bad language.

Question 5. Question : (TCO 4) In Chapter 1, we learned how to recognize cognitive bias which are psychological factors unconsciously affecting belief formation. Consider the following example:

One state legislature was taking up a measure to ban the use of fluoride in toothpaste to prevent cavities. Said one state senator, “Everyone knows that fluoride is a poison. Do we really want to be poisoning our kids every morning?”

The cognitive bias used is:

  • currency bias.
  • negativity bias.
  • overconfidence effect.
  • belief bias.
