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.

Staggering tasks confronted the people of the United States, North and South, when the Civil War ended. About a million and a half soldiers from both sides had to be demobilized, readjusted to civilian life, and reabsorbed by the devastated economy.

Civil government also had to be put back on a peacetime basis and interference from the military had to be stopped. The desperate plight of the South has eclipsed the fact that reconstruction had to be undertaken also in the North, though less spectacularly. Industries had to adjust to peacetime conditions: factories had to be retooled for civilian needs.

Financial problems loomed large in both the North and the South. The national debt had shot up from a modest $ 65 million in 1861, the year the war started, to nearly $3 billion in 1865, the year the war ended. This was a colossal sum for those days but one that a prudent government could pay. At the same time, war taxes had to be reduced to less burdensome levels.

Physical devastation caused by invading armies, chiefly in the South and border states, had to be repaired. This Herculean task was ultimately completed, but with discouraging slowness.

Other important questions needed answering. What would be the future of the four million Black people who were freed from slavery? On what basis were the Southern states to be brought back into the Union?

What of the Southern leaders, all of whom were liable to charges of treason? One of these leaders, Jefferson Davis, president of the Southern Confederacy , was the subject of an insulting popular Northern song, “Hang Jeff Davis from a Sour Apple Tree”, and even children sang it. Davis was temporarily chained in his prison during the early days of his two –year imprisonment. But he and the other Southern leaders were finally released, partly because it was unlikely that a jury from Virginia, a Southern Confederate state, would convict them. All the leaders were finally pardoned by President Johnson in 1868 in an effort to help reconstruction efforts proceed with as little bitterness as possible.

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.

According to the best evidence gathered by space probes and astronomers, Mars is an inhospitable planet, more similar to Earth’s Moon than to Earth it self – a dry , stark , seemingly lifeless world. Mars’ air pressure is equal to Earth’s at an altitude of 100,000 feet. The air there is 95 percent carbon dioxide.

Mars has no ozone layer to screen out the sun’s lethal radiation.Daytime temperatures may reach above freezing, but because the planet is blanketed by the mere wisp of an atmostphere, the heat radiates back into space . Even at the equator, the temperature drops to -50C ( -60F ) at night.Today there is no liquid water, although valleys and chnnels on the surface show evidence of having been carved by running water. The polar ice caps are made of frozen water and carbon dioxide , and water may be frozen in the ground as permafrost.

Despite these difficult conditions, certain scientists believe that there is a possibility of trans-forming Mars into a more Earth-like planet. Nuclear reactors might be used to melt frozen gases and eventually build up the atmostphere. This in turn could create a “ greenhouse effect ” that would stop heat from radiating back into space. Liquid water could be thawed to from a polar ocean. Once enough ice has melted, suitable plants could be introduced to build up the level of oxygen in the atmostphere so that, in time, the planet would support animal life from Earth and even permanent human colonies. “ This was once thought to be so far in the future as to be irrelevant,” said Christopher Mckay, a research scientist at NASA . “ But now it’s starting to look practical. We could begin word in four or five decades.”

The idea of “ terra-forming” Mars, as enthusiasts call it, has its roots in science fiction. But as researchers develop a more profound understanding of how Earth's ecology supports life, they have begun to see how it may be pssible to create similar conditions on Mars. Don’t plan on homesteading on Mars any time soon, though. The process could take hundreds or even thousands of years to complete and the cost would be staggering.

Question 71: With which of the following is the passage primarity concerned?

A. The need to study the Martian ecology.

B. The challenge of interplanetary travel.

C. The advantages of establishing conlonies on Mars.

D. The possibility of changing the Martian environment.

Question 72: The word “stark”in paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to ________ .

A. unknown B. distant C. harsh D. dark

Question 73: The word “there” in paragraph 2 refers to ________ .

A. a point 100 miles above the Earth B. Mars

C. outer space D. the Earth’s Moon

Question 74: Which of the following does the author NOT list as a chrateristic of the planet Mars that would make colonization difficult?

A. There is little liquid water. B. Night time temperatures are extremely.

C. The sun’s rays are deadly. D. Daytime temperatures are dangerously high.

Question 75: According to passage, the Martian atmostphere today consist mainly of ________ .

A. oxygen B. carbon dioxide C. water vapour D. ozone

Question 76: It can be inferred from the passage that the “greenhouse effect” mentioned in paragraph 3 is________ .

A. caused by the introduction of green plants. B. the direct result of nuclear reactions.

C. possible means of warming Mars. D. the cause of low temperatures on Mars.

Question 77: The word “suitable”in paragraph 3 is closest in meaning to ________ .

A. altered B. resistant C. native D. appropriate

Question 78: According to Christopher Mckay, the possibility of transforming Mars________ .

A. could only occour in science fiction stories.

B. is completely impractical.

C. will not begin for hundreds, even thousands of years.

D. could be started in forty to fifty years.

Question 79: The phrase “ more profound” in paragraph 4 is closest in meaning to ________ .

A. more up-to-date B. deeper C. more practical D. brighter

Question 80: According to the article, the basic knowledge need to transform Mars comes from ________ .

A. data from space probes B. the science of astronomy

C. the knowledge of Earth’s ecology D. science fiction stories
