Passage 1Questions 16-20)



Sally Ride was the first American woman astronaut in June 1983. She was accepted into the space programme in 1978. For five years Sally went through the difficult training course that prepared her to go into space on the shuttle Challenger. Completing the lengthy and demanding programme and the space mission took fearlessness, dedication and endurance. According to Sally, all the work was worthwhile the moment the space shuttle took off. Sally, a mission specialist , was joined by 4 other astronauts including mission commander Robert Crippen, Pilot Frederic Haukc, mission specialist John Fabian, and the spacecraft’s doctor Norman Thagard.

Passage 2: (Questions 21-25)

In Malaysia most of the floods are caused by the annual monsoon, which brings heavy rain to the east coast. If, however, the rain could be made to fall in the China Sea, there would be no more floods. The Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research (ISIR) knew that this was impossible, but thought that it might be possible to reduce the number of times it rained and the amount of rain that fell each time. They thought the total amount of rain damage might be reduced by up to 50%

Rain is caused by air containing water vapour rising and becoming cooler. Tiny drops of water float and become a cloud. When the cloud rises, the drops become colder and bigger. Because of their size, they are no longer able to float. They then fall as rain.

Seeding the clouds with chemical make these drops form earlier than they normally do. The seeding is done by aeroplanes which fly through the clouds.

Passage 3 (Questions 26-30)

Crows are very clever birds which can be trained to be amusing pets, but because of their stealing and the damage that they do to crops , many states offer prizes for killing them. Even though people have been hunting crows for years, experts are sure that there are more crows in the country than ever before.

How is this possible? Crows use an effective means of survival in the face of attack: cooperation. The crow flock posts guards high in the tree tops while the rest of the flock feeds. These guards can spot a gun barrel a kilometer away. Long before the hunter reaches gunshot range, the crows are gone.

Passage 4 (Questions 31-35)



Among the longest lived animals are the elephant, the box turtle, the alligator, the raven and the ostrich. These animals have life spans of over 50 years. The elephant, contrary to popular belief, does not have such an extraordinarily long life. The records on the turtle show life spans of twice that expected of the elephant.

Among small creatures some flies die the same day they appear. Mice may live a year or two. Trout, blue jays and chameleons have a maximum life span of about 4 years.

It is often thought that the larger the animal, the longer its lifespan. In shape and size, the grizzly bear, the lion, the canary and the cat are very different. Yet all these animals may live about 20 years, except for accidental death.

SECTION 2: Questions 16-35

Passage 1: (Questions 16-20)
In 1947, the pilot of a small aeroplane saw nine strange objects in the sky over Washington in the USA. He said that they looked like saucers. Newspapers printed his story under the headline FLYING SAUCERS.

Since then all over the world, people have reported seeing many similar strange objects. No one knows what they are or where they come from. Some people say they do not exist, but many people say they have seen them. Usually people on the ground have seen them, but not always. Airline pilots also have reported seeing them and so have astronauts – the men who fly spaceships. Captain Ed Mitchell, who was the sixth man to walk on the moon, said in 1974 that he believed some flying saucers are real. Many other people now believe that these strange flying objects are visiting the earth from other worlds in space.

Passage 2 (Questions 21-25)

The hundred inventions made by Thomas Edison include the electric light bulb, the world’s first ‘talking-machine’ – the record- player, and the film projector. Even when he was a small boy, Thomas Edison, the world’s greatest inventor, was always trying to find out more about how things worked. For example, he once fell into a grain store and was nearly killed. There was another time when he prodded a bees’ nest to see what would happened. A goat came from behind and pushed him into the bees’ nest and he was badly stung. His father was usually angry with the boy’s wish to know about things and thought that he would do nothing in life. One day, however, Thomas went too far. He set a farm on fire to see what would happen. What happened was that his father caned him in the market place for everyone to see.

Passage 3: (Questions 26-30)

There are many names for Australia -- Oz, Down Under, and the official name, the Commonwealth of Australia. But the name that the Australians like is ‘the Lucky Country’. It probably didn’t seem very lucky to the first settlers. They were convicts who had been transported from Britain. But after gold was discovered in the 1850’s, thousands of free settlers left the cold dark industrial towns to find their places in the sun.

Australia has a population of about sixteen and a half million people. In a country of over seven and a half million square kilometres – the sixth largest in the world, this is a very small population. Over 80% of Australia’s population is of British origin. This can be seen in many aspects of Australian life. English is the national language, cricket is the national game, and traffic keeps to the left.

………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… ……………



………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… ……………



Passage 4 (Questions 31-35)

The spread of the English language is due to colonial and commercial factors. The great colonies of North America and Australia were the commercial springboard which led to English becoming the most important of the international languages. French, once a close rival to English when it was the language of diplomacy , doesn’t figure in the top ten languages. Its international status , however, lingers in the field of postal services.

The dominance of English as an international language is fairly safe. The Japanese adopted English as the language of commerce mainly because their language is so difficult and they were dealing with the American market.

With the break up of the Soviet union and the reunification of Germany, the importance of German is bound to increase. The Japanese have already taken note of this fact and more of their businessmen are learning German to be ready to take advantage of the new European market.



31- Why is English so widely spoken?



………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… ……………



………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… ……………



32- What international status did French hold in the past? In what field does French still

enjoy its international status?

33- Why isn’t the number of Japanese speakers likely to grow?



………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… ……………



………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… ……………





34- Which language is likely to grow in importance?

35- Why are more Japanese businessmen learning German?

SECTION 2: (Questions 21-40)

Passage 1Questions 21-25)

Computers are being used more and more to create images that entertain, persuade, inspire, or protect us. You may be most familiar with these images or computer graphics, in movies and advertisements. But computer graphics are being used routinely in fields such as medicine and engineering.

One use of computer graphics in medicine is the CAT scan, short for computerized axial tomography. The CAT scan allows the doctor to see what is going on inside a patient’s body. For example, a doctor may order a CAT scan to see if a patient has a brain tumor. First the patient lies flat on a table while the brain is x-rayed from several angles. Then the computer puts the x-ray images together and creates a cross-section of the brain. This helps the doctor to make a diagnosis without having to perform surgery.

An engineer who is designing a bridge will use computer graphics to show how all the pieces of the bridge fit together. Then the engineer can manipulate the computer image to show what will happen to the bridge under certain conditions, such as high winds, heavy traffic, and earthquakes. The engineer can then change the design of the bridge to help it meet these conditions.

What began as a time-saving tool has become a life-saving tool and a life-enhancing tool as well.

Passage 2: (Questions 26-30)

Are you a leftie? If you are, you are one of millions in the world who prefer to use their left hands. There would be millions more left-handed people if their societies did not force them to use their right hands.

To understand left-handedness, it is necessary to look at the brain. The brain is divided into 2 hemispheres. In most right-handers, the left hemisphere is the center of language and logical thinking, where they do their math problems and memorize vocabulary. The right hemisphere controls how they understand broad, general ideas, and how they respond to the five senses – sight, smell, taste and touch.

The left hemisphere of the brain controls the right side of the body, and the right hemisphere of the brain controls the left side. Both sides of the body receive the same information from the brain because both hemispheres are connected. However, in right-handed people the left hemisphere is stronger. In left-handed people, it is the right hemisphere that is stronger.

Different handedness causes differences in people. Although the left hemisphere controls language in most right-handers, 40% of left-handers have the language center in the right hemisphere. The other 60% use the left side of the brain or both sides for language.

Left-handedness can cause problems for people. Some left-handed children see letters and words backwards. They read d for b and was for saw. Another problem is stuttering. Some left-handed children start to stutter when they are forced to write with their right hands.

Passage 3 (Questions 31-35)

Visitors to The New Orleans Cotton Exposition of 1884 saw a new tropical plant that had been brought from Venezuela. The new plant floated on the surface of a pond or stream, supported by air-filled bladder in the stalk of each leaf. Each plant bore clusters of very beautiful orchid-like blossoms.

Some exposition visitors obtained cuttings of the plant to take home with them because they wanted the beautiful, pale-violet flowers floating on their garden pools. They got what they wanted and more, for the water hyacinth escaped from cultivation and soon became a troublesome weed. Today, it chokes many streams and rivers in the Southern United States, from Florida west to Texas. Water hyacinths grow very quickly, covering the surface of the stream from bank to bank. One plant can produce 1,000 more plants in less than 2 months. The plants often form a tangled mass so thick that a boat cannot force a way through it.

In the United States, a great deal of money has been spent on projects designed to control water hyacinths. Poisons will kill the plants and dredges can scoop them out of the water, but they soon reappear. Some scientists have suggested establishing the manatee, or sea cow, in the afflicted regions. The manatee is a large aquatic mammal that can consume up to 100 pounds of vegetation a day, and it will eat water hyacinths.

But since manatees are endangered, it is unlikely that they will provide a permanent solution. Therefore, scientists are trying to discover uses for the water hyacinth. Some researchers are experimenting with using dried water hyacinths as livestock feed. Others are experimenting with using these plants in water purification systems because water hyacinths can absorb many chemicals, including industrial wastes. (292 words)

Passage 4 (Questions 35-40)

Although most universities in the United States are on a semester system, which offers classes in the fall and spring, some schools observe a quarter system comprised of fall, winter, spring and summer quarters. The academic year, September to June, is divided into three quarters of eleven weeks each, beginning in September, January, and March; the summer quarter, June to August, is composed of shorter sessions of varying length.

There are several advantages and disadvantages to the quarter system. On the plus side, students who wish to complete their degrees in less than the customary four years may take advantage of the opportunity to study year round by enrolling in all four quarters. In addition, although most students begin their programs in the fall quarter, they can enter at the beginning of any other quarters. Finally, since the physical facilities are kept in operation year round, the resources are used efficiently to serve the greatest number of students. But there are several disadvantages as well. Many faculty complain that the eleven-week term is simply not enough for them to cover the material required by most college courses. Students also find it difficult to complete the assignments in such a short period of time.

In order to combine the advantages of the quarter system with those of the semester system, some colleges and universities have instituted a three-term trimester system. In fourteen weeks faculty and students have more time to cover material and finish course requirements, but the additional term provides more options for admission during the year and accelerates the degree programs for those students who wish to graduate early.

Passage 1: (Questions 21-25)

Karl Jansky was an engineer working for a telephone company. In 1931 he was given a hard task. His company told him that it was needed to know why so much noise, or static, came over its telephone line.

To find the answer, Jansky built a funny-looking antenna. He hoped the antenna would find the cause of the static. Up to that time, people believed that static came from thunderstorms. Jansky discovered that some of the static indeed came from storms. But one kind of static was always there and was not caused by thunderstorms. This static came from stars far out in space. Radio waves given off by the stars caused the static.

Other people want to study these waves, too. They built new antennas, which were the first radio telescopes. Using radio telescopes, scientists were able to find groups of stars that were too far away to be seen with other telescopes.

Today, scientists send new kinds of telescopes into space. NASA launched the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO) in 1991. Instead of listening to the stars, CGRO ‘feels’ them. A collision creates a shower of particles. When these particles hit the CGRO it gives off a burst of light. Scientists can use these bursts to figure out where the gamma rays came from. When they find the source of the gamma rays, they know they have found a star! By 1996, CGRO had recorded 1,400 bursts.

Passage 2: (Questions 26-30)

A hermit crab does not have a hard shell as most crabs do. Its long soft body makes a nice meal for a hungry fish. It needs a way to protect itself. It moves into the empty shell of a snail or other sea animals.

The hermit crab lives safely inside its borrowed house. Only its legs and eyes stick out from the shell opening. It can move around with its house on its back and still see where it is going.

The hermit crab has only one problem. The shell cannot grow inside as it grows larger. There comes a time when its house is too small.

The hermit crab must keep its old house until it finds another. But finding the right home is not always easy. The crab is like a person shopping for a new coat. It must make sure that it gets one that fits properly.

When the hermit crab sees a shell that looks right, it leaves its old one. It backs into the new seashell and tries it on for size. If it is too large, a fish might pull the crab out. If it picks a house that is too tight, it will not be comfortable. The hermit crab searches until it finds a house that is just right.

Passage 3 (Questions 31-35)

Algae are plants without roots or leaves that grow in wet places. You may have seen algae on top of the water in a pond or lake. Algae will even grow in fish bowls. Most algae are green or blue-green, but some are red, brown or black.

Often, you buy algae at the drugstore, but you do not know it. Some kinds of algae are used in making cream, toothpaste, skin creams and medicine.

Algae do not look or taste good, but they are high in food value. They can be made into flour. People are working to make algae taste better so that they can be used for food.

Tomorrow more people will live in the world. They will need more food to eat. Algae are easy to grow. They may become an important food.

Algae can grow on spaceships. The people who go out into space may have their own algae gardens. Then they will not run out of food.

Passage 4 (Questions 35-40)

In 1989, educators in the USA began to call attention to a national problem: most students leave American schools without the mathematical skills needed for higher education. The Education Testing Service reported that, in an international survey, American teenagers had the lowest math scores.

This situation has been defined as “innumeracy”, or the inability to grasp the basic idea of mathematics. Mathematicians, teachers, and scientists were alarmed by these findings because the modern world depends upon math and science technology. They looked for the reasons for innumeracy and decided that, in addition to poor education, there are many psychological blocks to acquiring an understanding of mathematics.

Embarrassment about not knowing math can lead to fear in the classroom. Fear can lead to silence because students do not want to draw attention to their lack of knowledge. As a result, those students fall further and further behind. Low visibility in the classroom has not always been recognized as a silent call for help.

Math educators decided to try to change that. In 1990, the Mathematical Sciences Education Board called for a change in the way math is taught in the USA.

Math reform is beginning with the educators themselves. Teachers are now being trained to recognize and to help students work through “math anxiety” - the roadblocks on their way to gaining competence in mathematics. In addition, math textbooks are being updated to help students understand that math is not a sort of foreign language of numbers. Math is a tool that helps us to analyze patterns and structures, and to discover relationships.
