Read the following passages and mark the best
One of the smallest of all mammals is the shrew, a mouse like creature with a head and body length of only 3.8 centimetres. All shrews are small, with dense, velvety fur, long tails, and tiny eyes and ears. Shrews have been called bloodthirsty, though the label is not entirely accurate because they must eat almost constantly to stay alive. The animal is believed to have a very high metabolic rate and cannot live more than a few hours without food. In the absence of normal prey, it will turn to cannibalism to survive. The shrew, or some closely related animal, can be found on every continent except Australia. Since this tiny animal has a reputation for having a very bad temper, the adjective "shrewish" is sometimes used to describe a certain type of women.

35-The passage tells us that the shrew……… .
A)has a very short life span
B)is similar to a mouse in appearance

A)has tiny eyes and ears
B)is very fond of velvet and fur

Over the past 30 years, children's consumption in Britain has increased dramatically. In the average family of two parents and two children, spending on toys and children's clothing has more than tripled, and spending on sweets, ice-cream and soft drinks has risen by one-third. Research has recently found that spending is around £3,000 per child per year. The growth in spending reflects higher living standards, but it has been boosted by the efforts of the advertising industry. Campaigns directed straight at children account for much advertising expenditure. Most children in Britain over eight now have a television in the bedroom; on average, they watch 900 hours of TV a year, which is more than the 750 hours the average child is actually being taught in school. Thus a child could see at least 10,000 commercials a year.
38-The average family 30 years ago………. .
A)bought more children's clothes and books and less ice-cream and candy
B)watched more TV commercials than today
C)had a higher living standard than today

A)parents tend to have fewer kids now
B)more kids are involved in advertising campaigns
C)researchers advise parents to spend £3000 per year
D)the living standard has risen in the country over the years
E)children have much more money themselves nowadays

40-The author concludes the fact that most children over 8 now have their own television set means…….. .
A)children prefer watching television to going to school

C)more, children are missing school in order to watch television
D)an increasing amount of commercials are being watched by children
E)children spend a lot of time away from their parents

A movement called Jubilee 2000 is campaigning for Third World debt cancellation as a fitting way to mark the millennium. Launched two years ago, the group is now working in 42 countries, and is now supported by a large number of celebrities. Leaders of the group are harsh critics of the big ******ors' role in the developing world. In Tanzania, for example, one child in six dies before the age of five due to the lack of proper health care, but the government spends four times more on paying the interest on its debts than on primary health care. Money needed for health and education programs goes instead to rich international ******ors, whose billions have often supported corrupt elites.

E)are ignorant of basic principles of health care

Palmistry is the practice of 'reading hands', of gaining knowledge about personality, past individual history, and likely future events by examining the shape and size of the fingers and, most important, the lines and bumps on the palms themselves. There is some evidence that palmistry may have begun in the Stone Age. Hand outlines can be seen in black and red pigments on the walls of the ancient caves of Almira in Spain and in other European caves. Palmistry as it exists today probably had its origins in ancient India long before recorded history and found its way into western Europe through nomadic bands of Gypsies, who made contact with Europe in the 15th century.

Aphids are tiny green insects that are a chronic pest for farmers. Spiders and ground beetles living along field margins can keep their numbers under control. But as fields have become larger, the spiders and beetles take longer to get to the middle of them, so farmers began using pesticides for a problem that was once controlled naturally. An insect ecologist came up with a new solution called "beetle banks". These are one metre-wide strips of grass planted at 100-metre intervals across the fields. After two years, there will be enough beetles and spiders in one beetle bank to eat 52 million aphids a week, and the farmer will get rid of aphids without using a single drop of pesticide.

47-We can infer from the passage that………. .
A)all insects are pests for farmers
B)spiders and beetles are beneficial for farmers
C)farmers want to keep the number of spiders and beetles under control

The ancient Greeks built open-air theatres, usually on a hillside, with semi-circular rows of seats overlooking a circular space called the orchestra. The restored theatre at Epidaurus, dating from about 350 B.C., is a good example of a Classical Greek theatre. The Romans altered this plan by introducing a raised platform for the performers. The first theatre in London was erected in Shoreditch by Richard Burbage, a colleague of Shakespeare; a little later, in about 1590, he built the more famous Globe theatre across the River Thames at Southwark.

(IV) Consequently, a number of once deadly diseases have been conquered since the introduction of vaccination. (V) In the end, Salk's vaccine proved the best, and was used without further problems.


96-(I)A frog which lives deep in the Amazon rain forest secretes a mucus used by Indians, who believe that it makes them better hunters. (II) Early findings illustrate that hunting is one of the oldest and most traditional activities known to man. (III) When a hunter wishes to use this "frog magic", another man burns the hunter's skin with a hot twig, mixes saliva with the mucus, and applies it to the burn. (IV) After this, the hunter becomes violently ill, then falls into an agitated sleep, only to wake up the next day eager to hunt. (V) Scientists are interested in this ancient custom as they believe that the mucus may contain a substance able to help treat some brain diseases.


97-(I)Walia Ibex roam the steep slopes of Ethiopia's rugged mountains. (II) Legends trace their ancestry to the Near East, the species having migrated to the African continent thousands of years ago. (III) Therefore, most of the people of Ethiopia migrated to Africa from Southern Arabia over a thousand years ago. (IV) Today, a small population survives perilously on a mountain range surrounded by villages. (V) Despite protection within this area, which is a national park, agricultural intrusion and illegal hunting continue to threaten the Walia Ibex:

99-(I)Offshore areas considered part of South America include Easter Island, the Falkland Islands, the Galapagos Islands, and Tierra del Fuego. (II) In 1965, the English scientist Sir Edward Bullard used a computer to test the fit of Africa to South America. (III) He found that at a depth of 2000 metres, the fit was very close indeed.

(V) For example, there is also a belt of ancient rocks along the coast of Brazil, which corresponds with the rocks across the South Atlantic in West Africa.


100-(I)No one really knows how many stars there are in the universe, but astronomers calculate that there must be about 100,000 million of them in our own galaxy. (II) In the universe as a whole, there may be as many as 10,000 million galaxies. (III) On this gigantic scale, the Earth is about as significant as a single grain of sand. (IV) Of course, no one really knows how many grains of sand there may be on a single beach. (V) This illustrates just how immense is the task of exploring even the merest fraction of outer space.
