  As of the late 1980’s. neither theorists nor large-

  scale computer climate models could accurately predict

  whether cloud systems would help or hurt a warming

  globe. Some studies suggested that a four percent

  (5)increase in stratocumulus clouds over the ocean could

  compensate for a doubling in atmospheric carbon diox-

  ide, preventing a potentially disastrous planetwide temp-

  erature increase. On the other hand, an increase in cirrus

  clouds could increase global warming.

  (10) That clouds represented the weakest element in cli-

  mate models was illustrated by a study of fourteen such

  models. Comparing climate forecasts for a world with

  double the current amount of carbon dioxide, researchers

  found that the models agreed quite well if clouds were

  (15)not included. But when clouds were incorporated, a wide

  range of forecasts was produced. With such discrepancies

  plaguing the models, scientists could not easily predict

  how quickly the world’s climate would change, nor could

  they tell which regions would face dustier droughts or

  deadlier monsoons.

  24.The author of the passage is primarily concerned

  with

  (A) confirming a theory

  (B) supporting a statement

  (C) presenting new information

  (D) predicting future discoveries

  (E) reconciling discrepant findings

  25. It can be inferred that one reason the fourteen models

  described in the passage failed to agree was that

  (A) they failed to incorporate the most up-to-date

  information about the effect of clouds on

  climate

  (B) they were based on faulty information about

  factors other than clouds that affect climate.

  (C) they were based on different assumptions about

  the overall effects of clouds on climate

  (D) their originators disagreed about the kinds of

  forecasts the models should provide

  (E) their originators disagreed about the factors
