Essay 1 
ANALYSIS OF AN ARGUMENT 
Time—30 minutes 
Directions: In this section, you will he asked not to present your own views on an issue but rather to write a critique of the argument 
presented below.  You may, for example, need to consider what questionable assumptions underlie the thinking, what alternative 
explanations or counterexamples might weaken the conclusion, or what sort of evidence could help strengthen or refute the argument. 
Read the argument and the directions that follow it, and then make any notes in your test booklet that will help you plan your 
response. Begin writing your response on the separate answer document. Make sure that you use the answer document that goes with 
this writing task. 
 
The following appeared as part of an article in the business section of a local newspaper. 
“Motorcycle X has been manufactured in the United States for over 70 years.  Although one foreign company has copied the 
motorcycle and is selling it for less, the company has failed to attract motorcycle X customers – some say because its product lacks the 
exceptionally loud noise made by motorcycle X.  But there must be some other explanation.  After all, foreign cars tend to be quieter 
that similar American-made cars, but they sell at least as well.  Also, television advertisements for motorcycle X highlight its 
durability and sleek lines, not its noisiness, and the ads typically have voice-overs or rock music rather than engine-roar on the sound 
track.” 
Discuss how well reasoned you find this argument. In explaining your point of view, be sure to analyze the line of reasoning and the 
use of evidence in the argument.  Also discuss what, if anything, would make the argument more sound and persuasive, or would help 
you to better evaluate its conclusion.

Essay 2 
ANALYSIS OF AN ISSUE 
Time—30 minutes 
Directions: In this section, you will need to analyze the issue presented below and explain your views on it. The question has no 
“correct” answer. Instead, you should consider various perspectives as you develop your own position on the issue. 
Read the statement and the directions that follow it, and then make any notes in your test booklet that will help you plan your 
response. Begin writing your response on the separate answer document. Make sure that you use the answer document that goes with 
this writing task. 
 
Some employers who recruit recent college graduates for entry-level jobs evaluate applicants only on their performance in business 
courses such as accounting, marketing, and economics.  However, other employers also expect applicants to have a broad background 
in such courses as history, literature, and philosophy. 
Do you think that, in the application process, employers should emphasize one type of background --either specialization in business 
courses or a more varied academic preparation – over the other? Why or why not?  Develop your position by using reasons and/or 
examples from your own experience, observations, or reading.
