But according to the results of the test being by scientists, we are no longer getting enough darkness in our lives. In fact, research shows that a number of health and environmental problems are due to a loss of darkness.

Life has evolved with a day or night cycle. People who go this day or night rhythm will notice an adverse impact on their immune systems, and that's not a good sign.

By moving to , not taking into account the dark side, we will effectively be throwing away the advantages of evolution, whether we care to admit it or not.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Ralph Earl was born into a Connecticut farm family in 1751. He chose early to become a painter and looked for what training was available in his home state and Boston. Earl was one of the first American artists to paint landscapes. Among his first paintings were scenes from the Revolutionary war battles of Lexington and Concord. In 1778, Earl went to London to study with Benjamin West for four years.

When Earl returned to the United States, he was jailed for fourteen months for outstanding debts. While still a prisoner, he painted portraits of some of New York's city most elegant society women and their husbands. After his release, he took up the trade of itinerant portrait painter, working his way through southern New England and New York. Earl didn't flatter his subjects, but his portraits showed a deep understanding of them, perhaps because he had sprung from the same root.

Among Earl's most famous paintings is his portrait of Justice Oliver Ellsworth and his wife, Abigail. To provide counterpoint to the severity of the couple, he accurately details the relative luxury of the Ellsworth’s interior furnishings. The view through the window behind Earl's painting is something of an anomaly. Reclining Hunter, which for many years was attributed to Thomas Gainsborough, shows a well-dressed gentleman resting beneath a tree. In the foreground, he displays a pile of birds, the result of a day’s hunt. The viewer can also see a farmer's donkey lying in the background, another of the hunter’s victims. This outrageously funny portrait couldn't have been commissioned - no one would have wanted to be portrayed in such an absurd way. However, this painting uncharacteristically shows Earl’s wit as well as his uncommon technical skills.

What is the author’s main purpose?
  • To discuss the life and work of an American painter
  • To compare the art of Ralph Earl and Thomas Gainsborough
  • To trace Ralph Earl’s artistic influences
  • To describe the art scene in New York in the late eighteenth century

  • the two styles used to paint the two figures
  • the sunlit fields and the dark interior
  • the plainness of the figures and the luxury of the furnishings
  • the straight fences and the curving Connecticut River
Why does the author refer to Reclining Hunter as "something of an anomaly" in paragraph 3?
  • It is so severe.
  • It is quite humorous.
  • It shows Earl’s talent.
  • It was commissioned.
The author’s attitude toward Ralph Earl is _____.

Since water is the basis of life, composing the greater part of the tissues of all living things, the crucial problem of desert animals is to survive in a world where sources of flowing water are rare. And since man’s inexorable necessity is to absorb large quantities of water at frequent intervals, he can scarcely comprehend that many creatures of the desert .

Uncompromising as it is, the desert has not eliminated life but only those forms unable to withstand its desiccating effects. No moist-skinned, water-loving animals can exist there. Few large animals are found. The giants of the North American desert .

Since the desert country is open, it holds more swift-footed running and leaping creatures than the tangled forest. Its population is largely nocturnal, silent, filled with reticence, and ruled by stealth. Yet . Having adapted to their austere environment, they are as healthy as animals anywhere else in the world. The secret of their adjustment . None could survive if, like mad dogs and Englishmen, ; many would die in a matter of minutes. So most of them pass the burning hours asleep in cool, humid burrows underneath the ground, emerging to hunt only by night. The surface of the sun-baked desert averages around 150 degrees, but 18 inches down the temperature is only 60 degrees.
