Passage Two
Paragraph E
The main characters in myths are usually gods or supernatural heroes. As sacred stories, myths are often endorsed by rulers and priests and closely linked to religion. In the society in which it is told, a myth is usually regarded as a true account of the remote past. In fact, many societies have two categories of traditional narrative—(1) "true stories", or myths, and (2) "false stories", or fables. Myths generally take place in a primordial age, when the world had not yet achieved its current form. They ...view middle of the document...

B: Legends have been used to help mankind explain most customs, rules, and how the world was created.
C: Myths evolve around gods or beings that are supernatural, and these stories are usually accepted by the local community as true.
D: The only difference between a myth and a legend is the time setting of the story.
13. The main idea of paragraph E is:

A: To distinguish between many types of traditional stories, and explain the background of some traditional story categories.
B: To describe traditional stories and explain how they have been used through history to control the population.
C: To determine whether myths and legends could possibly have happened.
D: To show how important folktales were, and how these traditional stories made life more bearable in harder times.
14. What is the purpose of a folktale?

A: A folktale is a story that describes a true event in the past that has important lessons which man can learn from.
B: Folktales were created to help the church ward off superstition by the populations.
C: Rulers used folktales to help control the masses and prevent unrest by putting themselves in a folktale as the hero.
D: To explain the way that the world has formed and developed, and to explore cultural taboos and behaviors.
Paragraph F
The distinction between myth, legend, and folktale is meant simply as a useful tool for grouping traditional stories. In many cultures, it is hard to draw a sharp line between myths and legends. Instead of dividing their traditional stories into myths, legends, and folktales, some cultures divide them into two categories — one that roughly corresponds to folktales, and one that combines myths and legends. Even myths and folktales are not completely distinct: a story may be considered true — and therefore a myth — in one society, but considered fictional — and therefore a folktale — in another society. In fact, when a myth loses its status as part of a religious system, it often takes on traits more typical of folktales, with its formerly divine characters reinterpreted as human heroes, giants, or fairies. Myth, legend, and folktale are only a few of the categories of traditional stories. Other categories include anecdotes and some kinds of jokes. Traditional stories, in turn, are only one category within folklore, which also includes items such as gestures, costumes, and music.
15. The main idea of paragraph F is that:

A: Myths, fables, and folktales are not the same thing, and each describes a specific type of story.
B: Myths, fables, and folktales are all stories that are not true and are just intended to tell a moral story.
C: Myths are used for religious purposes, and when this is no longer true then myths are forgotten and discarded.
D: Myths can never become folk tales because one is true and the other is false.
16. The terms myth and legend are:

A: Ancient descriptions that mean the words true and false, and these are used to describe the origins of a story.
B:...
