Now that you have practiced
selecting the correct answer for multiple choice questions, let's look
at some multiple choice questions that are just a little different.
You will then be asked to answer a question using information that you found by looking at the map, graph, etc. You follow the same steps for answering this type of multiple choice question as you did for the other. Let's review them:
(You can click on underlined words for the definitions)
This type of question asks you to analyze the information that is presented to you and then select the answer that best answers that question using the information from the picture/graph/map etc.
Let's take a look at some of these types of questions below. Remember - you need to look at the information provided, analyze it and then look CLOSELY at the question. Ask yourself - "what information does this question want me to find?" Don't forget to use your steps that we have already learned about selecting the correct answer for a multiple choice question.
In order to find the answer to this question, you need to look very closely at the political cartoon. What do you see?
That's right, you see Uncle Sam (the government) taking a person called the "taxpayer" and shaking him up and down to get all of his money from him. The taxpayer is asking Uncle Sam to "Please let me keep some of my money." Do you think that the taxpayer thinks Uncle Sam takes too much money in taxes? Why do you think that?
That's correct. This cartoon is saying that the government takes TOO much money from the American tax payers. It is a statement that taxes are too high for people to pay.
Now look at your choices again.
Do you see an answer that makes the best sense?
You are correct, the best answer to this question is choice A - Federal taxes are too high.
You did a great job! You are now ready to go on and practice some multiple choice Social Studies questions! Remember...... take the time to really LK at all the choices before you make a selection!
Let's practice what we have learned!
