Sample TOEFL Test -3

Name: Sample TOEFL Test -3
Description: 1. The word "robust" in paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to
A) durable
B) healthy
C) full-bodied
D) strong

2. According to paragraph 2, why is this new evidence about walking so important to Alzheimer's researchers?
A) It demonstrates that walking longer distances may improve your chances of developing disease
B) It could potentially be the earliest indication of potential Alzheimer's disease in patients who show no other outward symptoms
C) It could help prevent doctor liability in diagnosing these cases
D) It is something that could be observed and logged by family and friends

3. Why is the statistic in paragraph 4 about the potential spike in Alzheimer's patients significant?
A) It shows that, because Alzheimer's primarily impacts older people, as largest generation (the Baby Boomers) ages, the number of cases will likely rise dramatically
B) It suggests that if the next generation wants to be healthy, they must have their gait tested now
C) It is of no real concern to the younger generation because Social Security will pay for medical care
D) The lifestyle of older generations is significantly poorer than that of younger generations

4. The statement made in paragraph 5 implies all of the following EXCEPT
A) Movements require many complex interactions within the brain
B) Our movements and cognitive state could very well be closely linked
C) Movement may become impaired if any one brain activity is somehow altered
D) Our brains have no control over our walking or movements

5. In paragraph 7, the word "cadence" is closest in meaning to
A) musical beat
B) rhythm of steps
C) intonation
D) sequence of movement

6. What is the most significant discovery of the Mayo Clinic study described in paragraph 7?
A) Cadence, velocity, and length of stride are all independent variables that impact cognitive function in different ways
B) The slower the participant's walk, the greater their memory capacity
C) The pace of participants' walk demonstrated no correlation to brain activity
D) The ways in which the participants walked had a definitive relationship to cognitive functioning

7. Which of the following is NOT a population or group studied in the experiments the article discusses?
A) movement impaired
B) mild cognitive impairment (MCI
C) cognitively healthy
D) Alzheimer's dementia

8. Throughout the article, "gait" is mostly often used to refer to
A) walking speed
B) the time it takes to transition from a walk to a run
C) a combination of cadence, length of stride, and velocity
D) the posture used while walking

9. What is the primary argument that the article makes AGAINST the link between gait and cognitive decline?
A) Areas of the brain that control movement are completely separate from those with cognitive function
B) Walking speed can change significantly depending upon the scenario and conditions
C) Dementia has no relationship to brain size
D) An annual test is too often to show significant changes over time

10. What best summarizes the overarching idea of the article?
A) The speed at which we walk and potential decline in cognitive function as we age is clearly proven by the studies presented in the article
B) Whatever your current walking speed is, the better shape you are in and the faster you become can both directly lower your chance of developing Alzheimer's
C) Annual gait tests are an expensive and ineffective test to add to Alzheimer's screenings
D) There is a definite probability that aspects of human gait and cognitive function
