The finest example of an error in the Blue Book p.647 #8

<p>I know it's late, but does anyone know why the answer to #8 on p. 647 of the blue book is "appreciation" and not "awe"?</p>


<p>There is no point in that passage at which the author is awestruck.</p>

The science fiction masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey will probably be remembered best for the finely honed portrait of HAL, the Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic computer that could . . .


<p>Where in this part of the passage does the author exhibit the slightest bit of awe? It is an objective statement for teh most part. The phrase 'finely honed portrait' reflects an author bias in favor of the masterpiece, eliminating (A) resentment, and there is absolutely no sign of (C) confusion, there definitely is no sign of (E) derision, and (D) awe is not evident at all. The prhase qualifies the answer (B) appreciation.</p>
