Read the following Passage and answer the questions below.

The following passages detail different aspects of the United States National Parks System.

Passage 1

[1] In the mid-to late-nineteenth century, America legislated an idea that would come to be emulated worldwide: the National Parks System. Starting with Yellowstone National Park in 1872, the United States government sparked a national and international trend of setting aside treasured spaces for preservation, protection, and public enjoyment. [2] Since then, over 400 national parks have been established in American states and territories, and globally over a thousand parks are now protected by similar systems in their respective nations.

[3] The United States National Park Service (NPS) is responsible for managing and protecting these parks. [4] Set up by President Wilson in 1916, this federal organization oversees budgeting, care, advocacy, and education for the country's parks. [5] As a piece of legislation enacted in 1933, the NPS includes landmarks of historic and scientific significance in addition to those significant for their sheer natural beauty or unique wildlife populations. [6] There are now 84 million acres of United States national Parkland (and water). [7] Thousands of employees and millions of volunteers work with the NPS to accomplish its vast responsibilities. [8] From national monuments and battlegrounds, to the breathtaking vistas of the Great Smoky Mountains, Alaska's Glacier Bay, and even underwater snorkeling trails in the U.S. Virgin Islands, spaces marked with awe and meaning are preserved for the enjoyment of generations to come.

[9] Today, more than 275 million people visit America's national parks yearly. [10] They come prepared to be amazed; the stunning beauty, powerful history, and inspiring intricacies of nature they encounter never disappoint. [11] And America's great idea, in which over a hundred countries now participate, enables that amazement to be spread and shared across nations and generations. [12] The National Park System teaches and invites people worldwide to practice preservation in their daily lives by making choices to protect the earth's wonders and treasures.

Read the following passage and correct the underlined portions by selecting the correct answer choice below.

[1] Lactic acid does not form during normal daily activities because our muscles have a small store of ATP available, which is easily replenished as it is used. [2] More intense activity, however, quickly uses up that store once the store is used up, and if the level of oxygen needed for the activity is greater than the amount of reaching the muscles, lactic acid starts to build up. [3] The buildup of lactic acid occurs most quickly while engaging in so-called power sports, such as sprinting. [4] After we stop exercising, you continue to breathe harder in order to get enough oxygen to convert the lactic acid back to pyruvic acid, to be used in the normal cycle once again. [5] As a result, ,lactic acid does not return to normal immediately after we stop exercising.
