Lesson 14C: Putting It All Together 3 Quiz
Question #1: The following questions are based on the passage WHY WE BUY CLOTHES THAT WE NEVER WEAR

Look inside your closet or open a drawer. You may find that some items were never worn. Psychologists have researched this issue and found some interesting reasons regarding why some purchases may appear to be right, but something is wrong.

The summary is:

Researchers revealed that some people buy clothes for the wrong reason. They ignore a major flaw in an item, which causes that piece of clothing or shoes to sit in the closet until throwing it out or giving it to someone else. Choice-support cognitive bias is a term for choosing something for a reason but ignoring another problem. When people use choice-support cognitive bias, they concentrate on one attribute and forget about other features. For instance, a person may be attracted to the sale price of shoes but ignored that the shoes were not very comfortable. The enticement of the sale made the buyer forget the other reasons not to buy. In this case, the sale trumped the comfort, and the shoes end up sitting in the closet collecting dust.

The summary is:

Most people choose to purchase items because they are completely delighted with them. However, with choice-support cognitive bias, those buyers are not 100 percent content. A person may choose to purchase a shirt because it is a good deal, or, for its superior softness, or, maybe for the shirt’s beautiful and unique color. But if the buyer ends up purchasing the shirt for one quality, it may sit in a drawer because the buyer did not consider the other factors. Shoppers may buy a top for its beautiful color but forget that there are no pants to wear along with it.

The summary is:

Fantasy, not reality, is a reason that many shoppers make wrong purchasing choices. This seems similar to choice-support cognitive bias, but the difference is that we focus on our false impressions of ourselves, not the item. For instance, a person may purchase a dress that is three sizes smaller because she plans to lose 30 pounds in a month. The reality is that the person never loses any weight and subsequently, the dress sits in the closet.

The summary is:

So, the next time you are ready to purchase clothing or shoes, go for the “100 percent rule.” There should not be any doubt, and when there is, do not buy it!

Question #6: The following questions are based on the passage HOLLYWOOD

Most people are enamored with Hollywood because it is known for its sumptuous lifestyle, glamour, movie stars, and fast living. This high-lifestyle living has not always been this way and diametrically contrasts with its original origin.

The summary is:
Question #7: HOLLYWOOD

Hollywood came about when Harvey H. Wilcox, an early developer, acquired the land in 1887 from H.J. Whitley. He purchased it because he wanted to establish a community with orchards, homes, churches, retail stores, parks, and libraries. Wanting the village to be a model community, Wilcox and the leaders of the project decided to only offer this perfect community to churchgoing families who abstained from alcohol.

The summary is:
Question #8: HOLLYWOOD

Hollywood existed as its founders intended for over 20 years. In 1900, there were fewer than 500 residents. No one carried firearms and there was no jail, as crime was practically nonexistent. With no commotion, the mayor did not have much to do, so he served without pay and the town's trustees held only a single annual meeting.

The summary is:
Question #9: HOLLYWOOD

But this quiet and bliss were destined to end. In 1910, desiring to gain access to a city's water supply, the residents voted to join with the city of Los Angeles. The following year, Hollywood’s growth expanded wildly. The city established the first motion picture studio, and then on, both the movie industry and the community grew rapidly.

The summary is:
Question #10: HOLLYWOOD

If you are wondering how the name Hollywood came about, this land was named before Wilcox purchased it. When Whitley owned the land, one day, he had an epiphany after meeting up with a Chinese man who was pushing a wagon filled with wood. Whitley found him on the top of the hill overlooking the valley. When he asked the man why he was there, he responded, “I holly-wood,“ meaning hauling wood. Whitley thought that the “Holly” would represent England and “wood” would represent his Scottish heritage. When Wilcox purchased the land from Whitley, his wife convinced him to keep the name, representing the intended, simple community. Even though Hollywood is now well-known as the movie capital of the world, with its large population and its illustrious image of high living, the city is far from what its original founders envisioned.
