For each question, indicate the best answer, using the directions given.
Notes: All numbers used are real numbers.
All figures are assumed to lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated.
Geometric figures, such as lines, circles, triangles, and quadrilaterals, are not necessarily drawn to
scale. That is, you should not assume that quantities such as lengths and angle measures are as they
appear in a figure. You should assume, however, that lines shown as straight are actually straight,
points on a line are in the order shown, and more generally, all geometric objects are in the relative
positions shown. For questions with geometric figures, you should base your answers on geometric
reasoning, not on estimating or comparing quantities by sight or by measurement.
Coordinate systems, such as xy-planes and number lines, are drawn to scale; therefore, you can read, estimate, or compare quantities in such figures by sight or by measurement.
Graphical data presentations, such as bar graphs, circle graphs, and line graphs, are drawn to scale; therefore, you can read, estimate, or compare data values by sight or by measurement.
For each of Questions 1 to 9, compare Quantity A and Quantity B, using additional information centered
above the two quantities if such information is given. Select one of the following four answer choices and
fill in the corresponding circle to the right of the question.
(A) Quantity A is greater.
(B) Quantity B is greater.
(C) The two quantities are equal.
(D) The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.
A symbol that appears more than once in a question has the same meaning throughout the question.

In a quality-control test, 50 boxes—each containing 30
machine parts—were examined for defective parts. The
number of defective parts was recorded for each box,
and the average (arithmetic mean) of the 50 recorded
numbers of defective parts per box was 1.12. Only one
error was made in recording the 50 numbers: “1”
defective part in a certain box was incorrectly recorded
9. The actual average number
of defective parts per box
