A Mystery in Macedonia

Alexander the Greats accomplishments are well-known. One of the greatest military leaders of
all time, this Greek king of ancient Macedonia was undefeated in battle. Yet one part of his life
remains a mysterythe cause of his death one month before his 33rd birthday.
Historians agree on a few facts about his death. On May 29, 323 BC, Alexander became ill after
attending a banquet. He remained in bed with a high fever. By June 9, he was unable to move
or speak, and could only acknowledge visitors by waving his hand. Two days later, he was dead.
Today, there are several theories about the cause of his death. Some experts believe he died of
a
disease. Malaria and typhoid fever were both common in the region at that time. Drinking
alcohol, as he did at the banquet, might have increased the effects of the disease.
Other historians suspect that Alexander was murderedpoisoned by one of his many enemies.
Critics of this theory point out that twelve days passed before Alexander died, and long-acting
poisons were not common in ancient Macedonia. Supporters of the theory, however, respond
by suggesting that Alexander might have been poisoned once on May 29 and then again before
he died. Recently, some historians have suggested another possibility. People who knew
Alexander often described his unusual posture. He held his head high, looking upward and
outward. This pose might have been the result of a spinal condition known as scoliosis. Its
possible that a related spinal infection was the cause of his inability to move and may have led
to his death. For now, however, the questions surrounding Alexanders death remain

21. Which possible meaning of the title is supported by information in the passage?

a. The location of Macedonia is a mystery.
b. The date of Alexanders death is a mystery.
c. The cause of Alexanders death is a mystery.
d. The cause of scoliosis was a mystery to Macedonians.

22. Which detail supports the theory that Alexander died of a disease?

a. Alexander died before his 33rd birthday.
b. Malaria and typhoid fever were common.
c. Alexanders posture was unusual.
d. Alexander attended a banquet before dying.

23. Which evidence is used to dispute the theory that Alexander was murdered?

a. Alexander may have been poisoned twice.
b. Alexander had a lot of enemies.
c. Alexander consumed alcohol before his final illness.
d. Long-acting poisons were uncommon.

24. Which detail supports the theory that Alexanders death was related to scoliosis?

a. Alexander died after going to a banquet.
b. Alexander was unable to move just before he died.
e. Alexander drank alcohol heavily.

Tulip-mania

For thousands of years, people have placed a high value on gold. But did you know that tulips
were once valued just as highly as gold? Tulips came to Holland, a region that is now part of the
Netherlands, in 1593 from Central Asia. At first, tulips were very rare and were grown only by
wealthy people. This made the flowers a status symbol, and within ten years, tulip-mania had
taken over Holland and spread to other regions and countries.
People sold tulip bulbs by weight, using the same measure as they did for gold. By 1624, a tulip
bulb could cost as much as 3,000 guilders, or \$1,500 in todays dollars. In months when tulips
did not grow, traders would sign contracts to receive certain numbers of bulbs in the future,
intending to sell them for still higher prices.
Tulips eventually became even more overpriced. Finally, in 1637, people realized that the
flowers were not worth what they cost. The market for tulips crashed, and many tulip traders
lost all their money. After that, the government set a maximum price that could be charged for
a tulip bulb.
Today, the Dutch still love their tulips. The Netherlands produces three billion tulip bulbs each
year, selling nearly one billion of them to the United States. The Netherlands is also the home
of the worlds largest flower garden, Keukenhof, where seven million tulips bloom each spring.

25. What is the passage mostly about?

A. the real value of tulips
B. the tulip craze in Holland
C. how tulips are grown
D. the biggest tulip garden

26. Which sentence could best be added at the end of the passage as a summary of the main
ideas?

A. Tulips are grown in many other parts of the world besides the Netherlands.
B. The tulip fields at Keukenhof stretch for many acres.
C. The Dutch also grow other bulb flowers, such as irises, lilies, and hyacinths.
D. The tulip is still important in the Netherlands, but now it is a more sensible passion.

27. Which detail best supports the idea that tulips were overvalued in the 1600s?

A. the government set a maximum price that could be charged for tulip bulbs.
B. the Dutch still love tulips and grow billions of them.
C. the United States imports nearly one billion tulip bulbs each year.
D. many tulip traders lost all their money.

28. Where did tulips come from originally?

A. Holland
B. The Netherlands
C. Central Asia
