11. The amount of your retirement benefits from Social Security depends, in part, on when you retire. The earliest that you can begin to receive benefits is age 62. The longer you wait to begin receiving benefits (up to age 70), the higher your benefits will be. If you were born between 1938 and 1960, you cannot receive “full retirement” benefits until age 66. If you were born in 1960 or later, your full retirement age will be 67. If you wait to receive benefits past your full retirement age, the amount you receive will continue to increase until you reach age 70. There is no advantage to waiting past age 70 to begin receiving benefits. You can continue to work while you receive retirement benefits. If you do, the amount of your benefits will be reduced by one dollar for every two dollars you earn above a certain limit, until you reach your full retirement age.

      ano po ba talaga ang sagot?

    • Sandra May Ong Maclang (王 蘇 翠) Dec 29, 2017 @ 17:05

      Hi! I AGREE with you on numbers 4, 6, and 7. The answers there should really be letter B.

      I have to disagree with you regarding the rest, though:

      #1) A is really the nearest synonym for the word MUNDANE in the context used ("He is more concerned with MUNDANE matters like the movement of stock market" can perhaps be paraphrased thus: He is more concerned with EVERYDAY/humdrum/ordinary/day-to-day/run-of-the-mill/commonplace matters like the movement of the stockmarket.) CBRC really should have chosen a better synonym to use as an option, but it really isn't used here to mean "worldly". To use "mundane" in the latter context would be to contrast something with the heavenly/spiritual realm, e.g. "According to the Shinto doctrine, spirits of the dead can act upon the mundane world." Ayun lang po. ^_^

      #10. The only option best supported by the passage is letter A. The problem with letter C is that it uses the phrase "to ANY use of animals for the benefit of humans." The passage only talks about how vegetarians are opposed to EATING animals. It says nothing about using them in OTHER WAYS to benefit humans. They likely aren't opposed to carabaos used in plowing fields or dogs used to guide the blind. ^_^

      #11. I really don't get your concern with this item, sorry…

      #13. Uhm…the answer key says B. Tama tayo rito, p're. ^_^

      #17. The most acceptable option is really letter D. "Because they did not accept his basic MOTIVATION, they were CONFUSED by his argument." Translated, "Dahil hindi nila maintindihan ang kanyang PINANGGAGALINGAN, NALITO sila sa kanyang argumento." ^_^ If A kasi, plugging those words into the given sentence would result in a LOGICAL FALLACY. You just CANNOT be CONVINCED by an argument BECAUSE you DID NOT ACCEPT its BASIC ASSUMPTION. Buti sana kung "assumption, UNconvinced" yung option A. 'Yun sana, puwede. ^_^

      #18. Haha! Mali rin ako jan. I answered A too. I really don't know if there's an objective rule in choosing a title. Parang too subjective, right? Actually, NONE of the ABOVE talaga kung ako. BORING lahat! A title should capture an audience's attention while at the same time summing up the article's gist. I'd probably title it "Failed Government Takeover Attempt Puts MAGDALO Group in Serious Legal Hotwater" or something to that effect :p Upon further reflection, however, I decided that CBRC has a point—the article talks about the possible charges the Magdalo Group is facing for their actions. They can either be charged with MUTINY, COUP D'ETAT, or transgressions under the ARTICLES of WAR. One thing is for certain: It was an ILLEGAL UPRISING of SOLDIERS. ^_^

      Lemme know if you disagree. Hope you do well sa Boards!!! ^_^

      Why is your answer in number 4 is B ?

  • Sydney Seiren Sep 19, 2017 @ 5:05

    Although I agree that MUNDANE means Worldly… Shouldn't we consider how it is used? In this context, it suggests that the correct answer is really Letter A.

    • Anonymous Sep 22, 2017 @ 13:13

      Mundane means ordinary. Worldly is to carnal. A is correct.

    • Anonymous Oct 15, 2017 @ 3:33

      Yes it is. A is the correct answer. Since the word mundane means ordinary(simple). Who said it was C?

    #8 ultimate is D. Supreme

    • Anonymous Mar 16, 2018 @ 10:28

      Number 8 asked for the opposite (antonym) of the given word. Ultimate and Supreme have the same meaning, so the answer can't be Supreme. The correct answer is C – Least.

    number 7: B

  • Justcameheretoreview Apr 8, 2019 @ 10:41

    I believe that the correct answer for number 3 is letter D. Yielding. Generosity is different from allowing or satisfying one's needs. If you search up the word, you won't see a word GENEROUS from its meaning.
