This is the EXACT QUESTION TYPE that will be on the exam Wednesday, 2pm.

**IF YOU STILL NEED INTERNET HELP, IT'S ALMOST TOO LATE, BUT CONTACT LOWTHER ASAP!!**
If you write the FRQ today, I'll respond with comments and help.
Remember: 45 minutes, one question, and all that's different from this example is the passage. You can do this!
