Question 1

Summarize the passage below in one sentence. Make sure to include a citation at the end of your summary.

“…students frequently overuse direct quotation in taking notes, and as a result they overuse quotations in the final paper.  Probably only about 10% of your final manuscript should appear as directly quoted matter.  Therefore, you should strive to limit the amount of exact transcribing of source materials while taking notes.”

 Question 2

“…there are two ways to become wealthy: to create wealth or to take wealth away from others.  The former adds to society.  The latter typically subtracts from it, for in the process of taking it away, wealth gets destroyed.  A monopolist who overcharges for his product takes away money from those whom he is overcharging and at the same time destroys value.  To get his monopoly price, he has to restrict production.”

 Question 3

"Interleaving. That's a cognitive science word, and it simply means mixing related but distinct material during study. Music teachers have long favored variation on this technique, switching from scales, to theory, to pieces all in one sitting. So have coaches and athletic trainers, alternating endurance and strength exercises to ensure recovery periods for certain muscles. These philosophies are largely rooted in tradition, in a person's individual experience, or in concerns about overuse."

 Question 4

"In clinical studies, regular aerobic exercise is as effective as antidepressants in reducing symptoms of mild to moderate depression. And that’s not just because moving might help you get into shape and feel better about yourself. Exercise actually causes the same structural changes to the brain as antidepressants—neuroplasticity, or creating new neural pathways, and growth in the hippocampus, a part of the brain that’s generally shrunken in people with depression."
