Bell Ringer
• Read the passage carefully.
• Complete number 1 on your own paper using
paragraph 3, lines 17-19.
• Be sure to write your justification.
• I can determine proper grammar.
Check Yourself and Justification
1.
C is the correct answer because “luminosity” matches the prediction
perfectly. This is seen in paragraph 3, specifically the statement “Quasars
are unmatched in luminosity and hence are the most distant objects that
can be detected”.
A is a misused detail because density is not a reason quasars can be detected.
B is out of scope because the author doesn’t mention “size” in this paragraph.
D is a misused detail because puzzling behavior is not a reason that quasars can
be detected.
I can determine proper grammar
