<p>*NEW</p>

<p>thank you but i believe that those are the answers for the saturday june 5th test, I'm looking for the sunday june 6th (today) test answers..</p>

<p>Ya, that's Saturdays test answers. I found the Sunday SO easy. Nixon and Kennedy both started careers with anti-communism after World War 2. The quote that began with "It is now the Cold War.." is Mccarthy. New England Colonies had town meetings..</p>

<p>Do you know the first civilized colony ?</p>

<p>That was one of the four that I skipped. That one, the mugging one and a two others.</p>

<p>i put virginia but i'm starting to think that it is massachusetts bay</p>

<p>what was the mugging one? i don't even remember it.. lol
i put truman for that quote :(</p>

<p>Well the Virginia colony was established before Massachusetts Bay, but the question didn't limit it limit itself to England colonies, the question stated Europe. I think it was one of the Spanish colonies</p>

<p>Are you sure the quotation " This is the Cold War... " was said by McCarthy?
Are there any questions you're not sure about?</p>

<p>Overall the test was pretty good</p>

<p>Florida was were the Europeans first settled bc St. Augustine is in florida (it was a kaplan SAT II question). </p>

<p>What was the Answer to question 22--the picture with the 2 circles that said merrimack
The 2 questions on Walt Whitman ---I put Pragmatism and Objection to reason</p>

<p>Confirmed that he's a pragmatist.
What was the other question on him?
For the merrimack I put that men and women are in different spheres (not verbatim), you?</p>

<p>I did something else that i dont remeber...i was gna chose that one but couldnt see if there was a man in the send sphere or just anothe women</p>

<p>I forgot what I chose for that one. What'd you guys do for the one with the graph of slavery- the one with the dots which represent 1 dot = 2,000 slavese</p>

<p>I forgot the choices lol
I know of 3 that i got wrong already :(
I really hope i got 700's</p>
