Part 3: Reading  
Read the passages below and choose the correct answer among A, B, C or D.  
Every year students from many countries learn English. Some of these students are  
young children. Others are teenagers, many are adults. Some learn at school, others study by  
themselves. A few learn English just by hearing the language in films, on television, in the  
office or among their friends. But not many are lucky enough to do that. Most people must  
work hard to learn another language.  
Why do all these people want to learn English? It is difficult to answer that question.  
Many boys and girls learn English at school because it is one of their subjects. They study  
their own language and mathematics and English. In England or America, or Australia many  
boys and girls study their own language, which is English, and Mathematics, and another  
language, perhaps French, or German, or Spanish.  
Many adults learn English because it is useful for their work. Teenagers often learn  
English for their higher studies because some of their books are in English at college or  
university. Other people learn English because they want to read newspapers or magazines in  
English.

Part 3: Reading

All of us have to work to earn a living ourselves and to help our family. However, we  
work not only for material life but also for many other things. We are working to prove our  
ability. We feel self-confident and proud because we are independent. Anyone who works is  
regarded as a useful member of society. We're working, that means we're contributing to our  
country. Working helps us train our minds because we always try our best to do the job. The  
better we work, the more money we earn and that encourages us to work harder. Without  
working, a man's life will be empty, purposeless and meaningless and it's easy for a jobless  
person to do wrongs.

Part 3: Reading  
Read the passages below and choose the correct answer among A, B, C or D.  
Australia is a big country, but nearly all Australians live near the sea. On hot summer  
days you can see thousands of people at the beach. Many beaches have waves that are very  
high. These large waves are known as surf and the people who ride them are called surfers.  
Surfing is a skill and needs learning. Don't expect to be able to surf properly the first time you  
try. However, by practicing a few times you will learn how to do it.  
Surfing is not a new sport. Perhaps its origins need explaining. It started hundreds of  
years ago in Hawaii. Men swam out to sea to catch fish and found they could come back to  
land very quickly by riding the waves. These first surfers did not use a board. They were  
"body surfers". Many people still do this type of surfing today.  
After a while, people started to use boards and rode the waves by lying, kneeling or  
standing on them. These first surfboards were made of wood and the water made them not  
after a while. Today surfboards are made of plastic or fiberglass instead.

THE INFLUENCE OF ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL  
Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone and became a very famous man. He also  
wrote an article which he presented in 1883. His research paper was about deaf people.  
In his article, Dr. Bell explained why there were so many deaf children. He believed that  
when deaf adults married each other, they would have ... (41) ... children. He thought that this  
was bad. Bell blamed the schools for the deaf for causing marriages between deaf people. He  
did not like the idea of these intermarriages and tried to think of ways to ... (42) ... them. He  
would have preferred that deaf children be taught at hearing schools. He did not ... (43) ...  
schools or the deaf. Bell felt that deaf people would not mix with hearing people if they went  
to ... (44) ... schools.  
Bell was ... (45) ... about other things, too. He noticed that deaf people socialized with  
other deaf people. He felt that socializing with other deaf people was bad. Deaf people should  
socialize with hearing people, he thought. bell tried to start a new law that would make it  
illegal for deaf people to marry each other. He ... (46) ... up his idea when he realized that  
such a law could not be enforced.  
Bell also had strong feelings about the ... (47) ... of deaf children. He wanted deaf  
children to be with hearing children in school. He thought that the deaf children could learn  
normal behavior from the hearing children. Bell was against the use of deaf teachers, too,  
because he thought this added to the ... (48) ... of a deaf "race" in America.  
Bell had another theory, which he never proved. He believed that deaf children who  
signed would not have good English ... (49) .... He could never prove this, and now many  
people have tried to prove the opposite! A lot of new research shows that many deaf children  
whose parents sign (and are deaf) do ... (50) ... schoolwork than deaf children who do not sign  
at home!

Part 3: Reading  
Read the passages below and choose the correct answer among A, B, C or D.  
Not so many years ago, the world vitamin was known only to a few scientists. Today it  
is very widely used, and the importance of vitamins in our foods is common knowledge.  
Vitamins are life-giving substances found in foods and are needed for the proper growth  
and general health of the body. The different kinds of vitamins are indicated by letters of the  
alphabet. At the present time, vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D, E and G are know. A proper diet  
should contain a collection of foods in which all of these vitamins are present. Vitamins are  
also prepared and sold in tablet and capsule form.  
Each vitamin has its particular work to do in the life-giving process. Vitamin B1, for  
example, benefits appetite and digestion. It also helps the body grow. Another vitamin helps  
the blood to clot, so that danger of bleeding to death in case of injury is lessened. Still another  
makes the eyes stronger of seeing at night. Airplane pilots need plenty of this vitamin.  
Scientists think vitamins may have some effect on keeping the hair from turning gray.

6. Which of the following is not directly stated in the article but is a reasonable conclusion  
from the reading matter?

B. vitamins are medicines given to cure diseases.  
C. to get all the vitamins a person must eat a variety of foods.  
D. a few people know the value of vitamins.

CAPTIONED TELEVISION  
By the 1950s many American families owned television sets. During television's first 20  
years, deaf people ... (41) ... most of the fun. They could not hear what was being said and had  
to guess.  
Deaf people who watched television liked sports and action shows, but they were  
disappointed with ... (42) ... programs. If there was a lot of dialogue, deaf viewers couldn't  
follow the plot. Even the most skilled lip readers could only catch part of the talking. This  
frustrated many deaf people.  
In the late 1960s, a man started experimenting. Malcolm Norwood thought that deaf  
people could ... (43) ... television programs, too. He wanted to develop captions for the  
programs. Norwood worked for the federal government's Media Services and Captioned  
Films Division at the Bureau of Education of the Handicapped.  
Norwood surveyed many hearing Americans. He wanted to see how they felt about  
seeing captions on the television screen. Too many people were against the ... (44) ....  
Norwood realized he had to develop another way of captioning - one that would not ... (45) ...  
hearing people.  
In October of 1971, Norwood's ... (46) ... signed a contract with WGBH-TV, a public  
television station in Boston. WGBH was hired to experiment with captions. They agreed to ...  
(47) ... a captioned television program for Norwood. That program was made. It was shown  
on television and at a special convention.  
The type of captions made by WGBH could be ... (48) ... on any television. No special  
equipment was needed. These were called "open captions".  
Later, a new machine was invented. This device was made to send signals on a special  
part of the television picture. The signals could be captions. If a family had another kind of  
machine in their home or in their TV set, then the captions (or signals) would ... (49) ... on  
their television screen. Without the machine, no captions would be seen. That special machine  
is called a decoder. It receives the signals transmitted from the television station. Captions  
that ... (50) ... a decoder are called "closed captions".

Part 3: Reading  
Read the passages below and choose the correct answer among A, B, C or D.  
Every second, 1 hectare of the world's rainforest is destroyed. That' equivalent to two  
football fields. An area the size of New York City is lost every day. In a year, that adds up to  
3
1 million hectares - more than the land area of Poland. This alarming rate of destruction has  
serious consequences for the environment; scientist estimate, for example, that 137 species of  
plant, insect or animal become extinct every day due to logging. In British Columbia, where,  
since 1990, thirteen rainforest valleys have been clear-cut, 142 species of salmon have already  
become extinct, and the habitats on grizzly bears, wolves and many other creatures are  
threatened. Logging, however, provides jobs, profits, taxes for the government and cheap  
products of all kinds for consumers, so the government is reluctant to restrict or control it.  
Much of Canada's forestry production goes towards making pulp and paper. According  
to the Canadian Pulp and Paper Association, Canada supplies 34% of the world's wood pulp  
and 49% of its newsprint paper. If these paper products could be produced in some other way,  
3
4
Canadian forests could be preserved. Recently, a possible alternative way of producing paper  
has been suggested by agriculturalists and environmentalists: a plant called hemp.  
Hemp has been cultivated by many cultures for thousands of yours. It produces fiber,  
which can be made into paper, fuel, oils, textiles, food, and rope. For centuries, it was  
essential to the economies of many countries because it was used to make the ropes and  
cables used on sailing ships; colonial expansion and the establishment of a world-wide  
trading network would not have been feasible without hemp. Nowadays, ships' cables are  
usually made from wire or synthetic fibers, but scientists are now suggesting that the  
cultivation of hemp should be revived for the production of paper and pulp. According to its  
proponents, four times as much paper can be produced from land using hemp rather than trees,  
and many environmentalists believe that the large-scale cultivation of hemp could reduce the  
pressure on Canada's forests.

6. How long does it take for 100 hectares of rainforest to be destroyed?  
A. less than two minutes B. about an hour C. two hours  
D. a day

7. Why is pulp and paper production important to Canada?  
A. Canada needs to find a way to use all its spare wood.  
B. Canada publishes a lot of newspapers and books.  
C. Pulp and paper export is a major source of income for Canada.  
D. Producing paper is the only industry in Canada.

9. Why was the plant hemp essential to world-wide trade in the past?  
A. Ships' ropes were made from it  
C. Hemp was used as fuel for ships  
B. Hemp was a very profitable export  
D. Hemp was used as food for sailors.  
0. Why do agriculturalists think that hemp would be better for paper production than trees?  
A. It is cheaper to grow hemp than to cut down trees.  
B. More paper can be produced from the same area of land.  
C. Hemp produces higher quality paper.  
D. All are correct

Part 3: Reading

REBECCA STEVENS  
Rebecca Stevens was the first woman to climb Mount Everest. Before she went up the  
highest mountain in the world, she was a journalist and lived in a small flat in south London.  
In 1993, Rebecca left her job and her family and traveled to Asia with some other  
climbers. She found that life on Everest is hard. "You must carry everything on your back",  
she explained, "So you can only take things that you will need. You can't wash on the  
mountain, and in the end I didn’t even take a toothbrush. I am usually a clean person but there  
is no water, only snow. Water is very heavy so you only take enough do drink"

Part 3: Reading

CARS  
Motor cars are the dream that could ultimately become the nightmare of the 21st  
century. The machines that once liberated rich people have become essential for millions.  
They have also sentences the present generation to the frustration of never-ending journeys  
that would shock the pioneers of Britain's biggest single industry.  
Cars have allowed millions to travel enormous distances for business and holidays  
cheaply and quickly. But the rapid growth in motoring has condemned us all to neurosis, not  
only over the time wasted in traffic jams, but also over pollution. That is why noise illnesses  
and destruction caused through pollution, road building, and the making of cars have made  
transport a major concern for the millennium.  
Britain's motor industry today employs a million people. However the industry which  
has shown such brilliant inventiveness over the century now faces its biggest challenge: to  
ensure a future of growth without pollution. The problem facing Britain is that millions rely  
on the car because there is no viable alternative.  
After 100 years, what is the future of the car? We have asked the experts, now let us  
know what the ordinary motorist thinks.

B. Because we have the frustration of traffic jams.  
C. Because a lot of people work making cars and they have to see them.  
D. Because it has become a cheap way of traveling and we don't have an alternative.  
7. In what sense does traffic affect people?  
A. It has advantages and disadvantages.  
B. It has no other alternative for the British  
C. It kills people in car crashes  
D. It creates pollution and makes people anxious  
8. What are the most remarkable features of Britain's motor industry?  
A. It is not a very important industry in that country.  
B. A lot of people work there but it may have problems in the future.  
C. It creates pollution and new roads cause the destruction of forests.  
D. It makes cheap and fast cars.

Part 3: Reading

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN  
Few people can embody the spirit of early America as much as Benjamin Franklin. He  
lived through almost the whole of the eighteenth century, being born six years after it began,  
and dying ten years before it ended. In this time he saw the American colonies grow from tiny  
settlements into a nation, and he also contributed much to the development of the new state.  
At the age of 17 Franklin ran away to Philadelphia. he had already received some  
training as a printer's apprentice, and this helped him seven years later, with his first  
publication, the Pennsylvania Gazette. He also received a contract to do government printing  
work, which helped him to rise from his poor background to become a successful  
entrepreneur. Some of his experience in business was hired in his famous Poor Richard's  
Almanac, which established his reputation throughout the American colonies. In another of  
his works, the Autobiography, which was written toward the end of his life, he shows the  
same quiet common sense.  
He was deeply interested in science and natural history, and his experiments with  
electricity and lightning led directly to the invention of the lightning rod. He was also  
interested in improving the conditions of his fellow men. He was involved in a number of  
projects in his native Philadelphia, including the setting up of a library, a university, a  
philosophical society, and - because he was a pragmatic man - a fire prevention service. In

753, he became Postmaster - General of the colonies. Through this experience he began to  
develop the idea that the colonies of North American should be a single nation. Later, he went  
to London to try to persuade the British government to change the conditions, especially the  
taxes, that latter led the American colonists into rebellion.  
Whatever Benjamin Franklin's personal feeling about the rebellion of the American  
states, he worked hard to make it succeed. As ambassador to France, he encouraged the  
French to help George Washington. After the war he attended the American constitutional  
congress. This was his last contribution, for he died later that year. He is still fondly  
remembered by Americans as one of the creators of the United States.
