Reading Comprehension about Legal

For example, we ask, what kind of person will give us the best and most reliable information about an individual`s behavior and activity, essence and character? We are told: the kind of person from whom information is usually asked – his closest friends and acquaintances and the authorities. Until all these people do not show themselves as they are, because the most honest will show themselves before people in whose judgment they have an interest that is at least as good, if not better, than they are – this is fundamental to the general egoistic nature of humanity, which at least tries to diminish its present well-being. Authorities who are asked to make a statement about a person can only reliably say the number of times the person has been punished or otherwise in conflict with the law or with himself. But the authorities have nothing to say about the social characteristics of the individual; The detectives must find an answer. Second, detectives are at most simply people who have had the opportunity to observe and question servants, fitters, doormen and corner washers and others who are in the service of the individual. Why we don`t ask these people ourselves, I can`t say; If we did, we could get to know these people we depend on to get important information and ask our questions based on the answers we need. The answer is the only one that captures all the important aspects of the author`s main idea: namely, that mere logic is not enough to understand the law; whereas the common law, by its history and development, must be understood as a social practice; whereas the fact that the common law has been influenced by the history of the societies that have developed it has shaped contemporary common law; whereas legal theory and understanding of this history must be used to understand the essence of the common law; and, finally, that there are limits to the progress of a strictly historical investigation. The correct answer is (E). Answer (E) reflects the author`s attitude in the most accurate and complete manner. First, the author`s appreciation for Lichtenstein`s art is displayed as opposed to how the author describes what Lichtenstein`s art is not. For example, the author claims that Lichtenstein`s work “went beyond mere parody” and that, unlike other works of Pop Art, he did not exhibit “blasé cynicism”.

Similarly, the author believes that Lichtenstein`s work is more than “the reflective power that parodies possess in relation to their themes”. In addition, the author`s appreciation is reflected in several positive statements about Lichtenstein`s work. The author`s appreciation for Lichtenstein`s realism is indicated by the author`s statement: “In addition to his caricatured methods, his work showed an impulse towards realism, a desire to say that what was missing from contemporary painting was the representation of contemporary life.” That the author also appreciates Lichtenstein`s naivety is demonstrated by this sentence: “Lichtenstein`s work did not radiate a blasé cynicism towards consumer culture, but a kind of conscious naivety… This idea is developed in the following sentence, which states that Lichtenstein`s paintings, “for all their superficial bravery,” possess “an inner sweetness.” It is important to note that these criticisms appear in the last paragraph and are part of the author`s conclusion on the importance of Lichtenstein art. The choice of answer (A) is incorrect. Although the author clearly believes that the rights of Native Americans should be protected, it is far from thought that Native Americans should not be subject to federal laws. More importantly, the author`s argument in favour of legal recognition of Aboriginal rights, as well as the assumption that the issues should be resolved in Canadian courts, suggest that the author likely believes that Aboriginal peoples should be held to Canadian law. The correct answer is (A), “a widening of the Antarctic ice sheet.” In the second paragraph of passage B, the author explicitly mentions the possibility that the Antarctic ice sheet is developing due to global warming and warmer ocean temperatures. On the other hand, Passage A makes no mention of the possibility that the Antarctic ice sheet could develop. In fact, passage A on the theme of the Antarctic ice sheet only alludes to the rupture of part of the Larsen ice shelf (first sentence of the passage), suggesting that the author of passage A believes that the Antarctic ice sheet is shrinking due to global warming. Thus, answer (A) describes something mentioned in passage B, but not in passage A, as a possible consequence of global warming. Moreover, most of us have at least some basic knowledge of the law.

We may not have had academic experience with matters of science or aesthetics, but many of us on a pre-legal path chose a major, like political science, which we were told would shape our young mind into that of an astute legal thinker. While Poly Sci`s connection to law school material is, in my opinion, quite weak, it is at least somewhat related to the legal field. The same cannot be said of this major`s connection to the vagaries of fish farming or Eileen Gray`s architectural sculpture. In addition, we have all seen one or two legal dramas in our time. You cannot use all the source documents available in English if you have difficulty understanding the text. General English skills can only take you up to a certain point: a lawyer researching legal texts needs a high level of legal English to understand what is being read. 4. According to passage A, proponents of the U.S. legal system would most likely agree with which of the following? Stay tuned next week for an article on how to deal with difficult passages about the arts. The choice of answer (A) is incorrect. The scenario described does not involve anything similar to the relationship between an original onion and subsequent offspring.

Rather, it is an example of a person applying for a job based on a perception of the degree of competition for that job. Then, think about the real impact of that technique or the law or court decision. Is the author still on board? Many times, no.
