Passage and Questions:Walter Reed’s Medical Breakthrough Just over 100 years ago, one of the most important medical discoveries, in modern times [1] relieved the suffering [1] and saved the lives of untold thousands. This major breakthrough was the identification of the cause and spread of the disease yellow fever. For several centuries, yellow fever was a scourge upon societies [2] in various parts of the world, striking towns and killing thousands of people. Thanks to [3] the efforts of Major Walter Reed and many courageous volunteers, the mechanisms for contracting and spreading yellow fever were uncovered. During Reed’s lifetime, it was a common acceptance [4] that yellow fever was spread by contact with infected items; such as [5] the clothing or blankets of a person with yellow5fever. Some doctors, however, questioned this notion, as the spread of yellow fever was not consistent with the spread of other communicable diseases [6]. Doubts about the accepted theory’s [7] of the fever’s spread prompted the U.S. Army to assign Reed and several doctors to the problem. They studied yellow fever in Cuba, where they were [8] infecting soldiers fighting in the Spanish 8 American War at a discouraging [9] rate. Acting on a hunch, several doctors volunteered to be bitten by mosquitoes; the volunteers developed yellow fever. This was enough information to spur General Reed to conduct more comprehensive experiments, so helping his cause [10]. [6.] Which of the following sentences, if inserted here, would be the best example of how yellow fever seemed to be spread differently than other communicable diseases? F. For example, people had no choice but to wear clothing and use blankets, so the fever could not have spread that way. G. For example, sometimes one person would get sick in a household, while nobody else in that household would get sick. H. For example, yellow fever caused a great deal of pain in its victims. J. For example, some doctors were willing to go against what the rest of the medical establishment was saying. [7.] A. NO CHANGE B. theorize C. theories’ D. theories [8]. F. NO CHANGE G. the disease was H. the doctors were J. the Army was [9]. The writer wants to emphasize how quickly yellow fever was infecting the troops in the Spanish American War. Which choice does that best? A. NO CHANGE B. a great C. an alarming D. a normal [10]. F. NO CHANGE G. experiments; which helped his cause. H. experiments (which helped his cause). J. experiments.
