Rasa,
 
Graduate schools differ, of course, on what they want in terms of
written work, and this is largely dependent on the type of program.
For instance, a program emphasizing performance will not put too
much emphasis on a critical bibliography.  However, since you
imply you're in a PhD-track program and you're planning a
scholarly emphasis, that's not a useful example.
 
If you're asked for two examples of work, I suggest you provide two
different types of work:  a critical bibliography and a research
paper, for instance.  Show off the breadth of your scholarly
ability.  Demonstrate that you are equally at home doing textual
analysis and primary research.  (Or whatever you're good at.)
 
Don't take this to extremes, though.  If you really have only one
or two related scholarly strengths, play to them.  Two similar papers
that got A's will probably help you more than an A paper and a D paper
in different areas.
