Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 51 to 60

      The goal of Internet-based encyclopedia Wikipedia (www.wikipedia.org) is to give everyone on the planet access to information. Like other encyclopedias, Wikipedia contains lots of information: more than 2.5 million articles in 200 different languages covering just about every subject. Unlike other encyclopedias, however, Wikipedia is not written by experts, but by ordinary people. These writers are not paid and their names are not published. They contribute to Wikipedia simply because they want to share their knowledge.

     Encyclopedias began in ancient times as collections of writings about all aspects of human knowledge. The word itself comes from ancient Greek, and means “a complete general education”. Real popularity for encyclopedias came in the nineteenth century in Europe and the United States, with the publication of encyclopedias written for ordinary readers. With the invention of the CD-ROM, the same amount of information could be put on a few computer discs. Then with the Internet, it became possible to create an online encyclopedia that could be constantly updated, like Microsoft’s Encarta. However, even Internet-based encyclopedias like Encarta were written by paid experts. At first, Wikipedia, the brainchild of Jimmy Wales, a businessman in Chicago, was not so different from these. In 2001, he had the idea for an Internet-based encyclopedia that would provide information quickly and easily to everyone. Furthermore, that information would be available free, unlike other Internet encyclopedias at that time.

     But Wales, like everyone else, believed that people with special knowledge were needed to write the articles, and so he began by hiring experts. He soon changed his approach, however, as it took them a long time to finish their work. He decided to open up the encyclopedia in a radical new way, so that everyone would have access not only to the information, but also to the process of putting this information online. To do this, he used what is known as “Wiki” software (from the Hawaiian word for “fast”), which allows users to create or alter content on web page. The system is very simple: When you open the web site, you can simply search for information or you can log on to become a writer or editor of articles. If you find an article that interests you – about your hometown, for example – you can correct it or expand it. This process goes on until no one is interested in making any more changes.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 61 to 70

Fiberscopes are one of the most are one of the most important outcomes of he science of fiber optics. Fibers made of glass and transparent acrylic plastic are capable of conveying light energy, and when thousands of these fibers are combined in what is called a fiberscope, they can transmit images. The most common fiberscopes contain about 750,000 fibers, each 0.001 centimeter, or 10 microns, in diameter. For certain uses, the diameter of the fiber may be as small as 5 microns.

Fiberscopes have a wide range of applications. In the medical field, physicians use fiberscopes to examine internal organs and as an aid in delicate surgeries. Miniature probes have also been developed to view muscle fiber, skin tissue, and blood cells. Fiberscopes have also found varied uses in industry, particularly to inspect or control operations in inaccessible areas. Bundles of fiberscopes fused together in a solid plate, called a faceplate, are being used in the manufacture of television tubes and other cathode-ray tube devices.

The most far reaching applications of fiber-optic technology are in communication. Optical fibers carry voice messages for telephone service. The sound of the voice is electronically broken down into thousands of pulses per second, which causes a transmitting laser to send coordinated pulses of light through the optical fibers. At the receiving end, the light pulses are converted to electrical signals and the voice message is reconstructed. Light-wave communication systems can handle an immensely greater number of telephone calls and television programs than the current system, and they will form the basis of the “electronic superhighway” expected to crisscross the nation in the near future of the information age.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

Statistics regarding cigarette smoking are anything but encouraging. The Federal Trade Commission recently announced that in 1980 Americans purchased 628.2 billion cigarettes, an appallingly greater number than ever before. The average smoker consumed 11,633 cigarettes, of which 44.8 percent were low-tar cigarettes containing less than 15 milligrams of tar. In 1968 the average tar content was 22 milligrams.

Despite the fact that every cigarette pack has a printed warning from the Surgeon General, those who still smoke are smoking more heavily. Many people have forsworn smoking in fear of lung cancer. The American Cancer Society reports that death rates from lung cancer have escalated, whereas those for other major cancers have leveled off or declined. Last year 111,000 Americans died of lung cancer, while it is estimated that 117,000 will succumb this year. Lung cancer heads the list in killing 35 percent of males who die from cancer. Lung cancer accounts for  17 percent of women’s cancer deaths. An estimated 440,000 deaths from cancer will occur this year, 9,000 more than the previous year. Lung cancer accounts for two thirds of the increase. Although many cancer patients have survived the disease, the prognosis for lung cancer patients is most disheartening. Ninety one percent of all diagnosed cases of lung cancer do not survive.

Question 42.You may infer that low-tar cigarettes

     a.reduce the dangers of smoking                            b.appeal to a majority of smokers

     c.cause lung cancer                                                 d.have the Surgeon General’s approval

Question 43.Statistics show  average smokers smoke

     a.less than they did in the past                                 b.more than they did in the past      

     c.the same as they did in the past                            d.none of the above

Question 44.It is predicted that the number of deaths from lung cancer this year will be

     a.reduced from the number last year                      b.the same as the number last year

     c.6,000 more than last year                                     d.111,000

Question 45.The percentage of the women’s lung cancer deaths is

     a.equal to that of men’s lung cancer deaths           

     b.rising annually

     c.about half the percentage of men’s  cancer deaths

     d.an indication that women are not susceptible to lung cancer.

Question 46.You may infer from the passage that lung cancer

     a.can be treated effectively                                     b.is always related to smoking

     c.will cause cigarettes to be taken off the market   d.currently has no infallible cure

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

     A pilot cannot fly a plane by sight alone. In many conditions, such as flying at night and landing in dense fog, a pilot must use radar, an alternative way of navigating. Since human eyes are not very good at  determining speeds of approaching objects, radar can show a pilot how fast nearby planes are moving. The basic principle of radar is exemplified by what happens when one shouts in a cave. The echo of the sounds against the walls helps a person determine the size of the cave. With radar, however, the waves are radio waves instead of sound waves. Radio waves travel at the speed of light, about 300,000 kilometers in one second. A radar sends out a short burst of radio waves. Then it receives the echoes produced when the waves bounce off the objects. By determining the time it takes for the echoes  to return to the radar set, a trained technician can determine the distance between the radar set and the objects. The word ‘radar’ , in fact, gets its name from the term ‘radio detection and ranging’. ‘Ranging’ is the term for detection of the distance between an object and the radar set. Besides being of critical importance to pilots, radar is essential for air traffic control, tracking ships at sea, and for tracking weather systems and storms.

Question 52.What is the main topic of the passage?

     a.the nature of radar         b.types of ranging           c.alternatives to radar       d.history of radar

Question 55.The phrase ‘a burst’ is closest meaning to ….

     a.an attachment                b.a discharge                  c.a stream                         d.a ray

Question 56.The word ‘it’ refers to …

     a.a radar set                      b.a short burst                 c.a radio wave                  d.light

Question 57.Which types of waves does radar use?

     a.sound                             b.heat                              c.radio                               d.light

Question 58.The word ‘critical’ is closest meaning to…..

     a.serious                            b.severe                          c.heavy                             d.crucial

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer for each of the blanks .

     You have 62…….heard someone say that the reason you caught a cold was that you were run-down. People generally accept that if you are under press or run-down, you are more 63………to get ill. But is this really true or is it just an old wives’ 64………?

     The problem 65……..old sayings like this is that it is often difficult to prove 66……..they are true or not. If you ask people with colds if they are feeling run-down, they are almost certain 67…….yes. People without colds are more likely to say no. So, 68……..you can tell if it’s the cold that is making them feel run-down or the fact that they are run-down that is making them more likely to catch a cold?

     Scientists at the Common Cold Research Centre ran a series of tests. They got 69…….without colds to attend the centre, 70……..they were first given a questionaire to complete.

After many people had been tested, the researchers looked for a link 73…….the measured stress level and the chances of catching a cold. They found that 74……the stress, the more likely the person was to catch a cold.

     At the moment, it is not known why stress makes someone more likely to become ill, but now that the link has been found, researchers might be able to investigate 75……. . They may even find different ways of combating diseases.

Paul believes in protecting endangered animals, and he protects them in controversial ways. Some people think that Watson is a hero and admire him very much. Other people think that he is a criminal.

            On July 16th, 1979, Paul Watson and his crew were on his ship, which is called the Sea Shepherd. Watson and the people who work on the Sea Shepherd were hunting on the Atlantic Ocean near Portugal. However, they had a strange prey; instead of hunting for animals, their prey was a ship, the Sierra. The Sea Shepherd found the Sierra, ran into it and sank it. As a result, the Sierra never returned to the sea. The Sea Shepherd, on the other hand, returned to its home in Canada. Paul Watson and his workers thought that they had been successful.

            The Sierra had been a whaling ship, which had operated illegally. The captain and the crew of the Sierra did not obey any of the international laws that restrict whaling. Instead, they killed as many whales as they could, quickly cut off the meat, and froze it. Later, they sold the whale meat in countries where it is eaten.

            Paul Watson tried to persuade the international whaling commission to stop the Sierra. However, the commission did very little, and Paul became impatient. He decided to stop the Sierra and other whaling ships in any way that he could. He offered to pay $25,000 to anyone who sank any illegal whaling ship, and he sank the Sierra. He acted because he believes that the whales must be protected. Still, he acted without the approval of the government; therefore, his actions were controversial.

            Paul Watson is not the only environmental activist. Other men and women are also fighting to protect the Earth. Like Watson, they do not always have the approval of their governments, and like Watson, they have become impatient. Yet, because of their concern for the environment, they will act to protect it.
