Read the following passage and mark the letterA, B ,C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 31 to 40.
    The World Trade Organization (WTO) has 150 member countries. They are looking to improve trade. Trade means the buying and se lling of goods. The WTO provides a place where these countries can talk about what they need. The goal of the WTO is to make trade grow by removing legal barriers between countries.
    The WTO helps trade in several ways. First, it asks countries to treat each other equally. They should not give special trade deals to one country and not to another. Also, these countries should not try to stop foreign products from any one country. The idea is that goods and services should be able to cross borders easily. A second way to improve trade is to lower tariffs. These are special taxes for things bought and sold. A third way to strengthen trade is to make sure that the rulers will stay the same. In order for people to invest their money, they need to feel secure for the future. A fourth way is to allow greater competition between countries. The central belief is that competition makes for a
stronger economy. The last way to improve trade is to help countries that are poor. They need help coming up to the level of modern countries. They can be helped by allowing them extra time to get their systems in order. They can be given priority in making deals with other
    Free and easy trade is the WTO’s goal. It supports rich countries and helps poor countries get ahead. It is one way of improving the lives of more people in the world.

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

    Sharks have gained an unfair reputation for being fierce predators of large sea animals. Humanity’s unfounded fear and hatred of these ancient creatures is leading to a worldwide slaughter that may result in the extinction of many coastal shark species. The shark is the victim of a warped attitude of wildlife protection: we strive only to protect the beautiful, non-threatening parts of our environment. And, in our effort to restore only non-threatening parts of our earth, we ignore other important parts.
    A perfect illustration of this attitude is the contrasting attitude toward another large sea animal, the dolphin. During the 1980s,
environmentalists in the United States protested the use of driftnets for tuna fishing in the Pacific Ocean since these nets also caught dolphins. The environmentalists generated enough political and economic pressure to prevent tuna companies from buying tuna that had been caught in driftnets. In contrast to this effort on behalf of the dolphins, these same environmentalists have done very little to help save the Pacific Ocean sharks whose population has decreased nearly to the point of extinction. Sharks are among the oldest creatures on earth, having survived in the seas for more than 350 million years. They are extremely efficient animals, feeding on wounded or dying animals, thus performing an important role in nature of weeding out the weaker animals in a species. Just the fact that species such as the Great White
    Shark have managed to live in the oceans for so many millions of years is enough proof of their efficiency and adaptability to changing environments. It is time for us humans, who may not survive another 1, 000 years at the rate we are damaging the planet, to cast away our fears and begin considering the protection of sharks as an important part of a program for protection of all our natural environment.
