Many people would do well to take a different attitude to preventing illness. The best way to keep well is to avoid (48) unhealthy foods and habits. It is also (49) helpful to take plenty of exercise, and we should give (50) encouragement to people of all ages to do this, particularly the young ones. If we can educate people at an early age to keep fit and to look after themselves (51) carefully, then the (52) probability of their having problems in later life will be considerably reduced. However, no matter how well we look after ourselves and how much exercise we do, illness, (53) unfortunately, is not always preventable.

I. Choose the word (A, B, C, or D) that best fits the blank in the following passage.


Research has shown that over half the children in Britain who take their own lunches to school do not eat (64) properly in the middle of the day. In Britain schools have to (65) provide meals at lunchtime. Children can (66) choose to bring their own food or have lunch at the school canteen.

One shocking finding of this research is that school meals are (67) much healthier than lunches prepared by parents. There are strict standards for the preparation of school meals, which have to include one portion of fruit and one of vegetables, as well as meat, a dairy item and starchy food like bread or pasta. Lunchboxes (68) examined by researchers contained sweet drinks, crisps and chocolate bars. Children consume twice as much sugar (69) as they should at lunchtime.

The research will provide a better understanding of why the percentage of overweight students in Britain has (70) increased in the last decade. Unfortunately, the government cannot criticise parents, but it can remind them of the (71) nutritional value of milk, fruit and vegetables. Small changes in their children’s diet can (72) affect their future health. Children can easily develop bad eating (73) habits at this age, and parents are the only ones who can prevent it.

64. A. appropriately B. properly  C. probably  D. possibly

65. A. give  B. provide  C. make  D. do

66. A. prefer  B. manage  C. want  D. choose

67. A. many  B. much  C. more  D. less

68. A. examined B. found  C. taken  D. investigated

69. A. so  B. than      C. as   D. such

70. A. increased B. expanded  C. extended  D. added

71. A. positive  B. healthy  C. nutritional  D. good

72. A. damage  B. predict  C. destroy  D. affect

73. A. behaviours B. styles  C. attitudes  D. habits              

II. Fill in each blank with ONE suitable word to complete the following passage.


I was born in one of the most interesting cities in Malaysia. It has a rich, colourful history and many parts of the city have hardly changed at (74) all during the last five centuries. However, nowadays, it is (75) no longer the trade centre that it once (76) stood . It is difficult to imagine that at one time its harbour (77) used  to be visited by over 2,000 ships a week, and that the huge warehouses along the quayside would have (78) been full of spices and silks, jewels and tea.

 The old city centre is small, which (79) makes it very easy to explore (80) on foot. A river neatly divides the town, (81) not only physically but in spirit, too. On one side, you find many grand houses, but on crossing the river, you find yourself in ancient Chinatown, where you really take a step back into the past.

 It is great fun to wander through the colourful, noisy backstreets. As well as having shops that sell a wide range of clothes and shoes, some of these streets are also famous (82) for high quality antiques. Unfortunately, most of the bargains disappeared many years ago. However, (83) if you look around carefully, you can still come across an interesting souvenvir.

III. Read the passage below and choose the best answer to each question.

Because writing has become so important in our culture, we sometimes think of it as more real than speech. A little thought, however, will show why speech is primary and writing secondary to language. Human beings have been writing (as far as we can tell from surviving evidence) for at least 5,000 years; but they have been talking for much longer, doubtless ever since there have been human beings.

When writing did develop, it was derived from and represented speech, although imperfectly. Even today there are spoken languages that have no written form. Furthermore, we all learn to talk well before we learn to write; any human child who is not severely handicapped physically or mentally will learn to talk: a normal human being cannot be prevented from doing so. On the other hand, it takes a special effort to learn to write. In the past many intelligent and useful members of society did not acquire the skill, and even today many who speak languages with writing systems never learn to read or write, while some who learn the rudiments of those skills do so only imperfectly.

To affirm the primacy of speech over writing is not, however, to disparage the latter. One advantage writing has over speech is that it is more permanent and makes possible the records that any civilization must have. Thus, if speaking makes us human, writing makes us civilized.

A. it has become very important in our culture

B. people have been writing since there have been human beings

A. writing has become too important in today’s society  B. speech is more basic to language than writing

A. learn to write before learning to talk B. learn to talk before learning to write

C. learn to talk after learning to write D. learn to write and to talk at the same time

87. According to the passage, writing .........

A. is imperfect, but less so than speech B. represents speech, but not perfectly

C. developed from imperfect speech  D. is represented perfectly by speech

88. In the author’s judgment, .........

A. writing has more advantages than speech B. speech is essential but writing has important benefits

C. speech conveys ideas less accurately than writing does  D. writing is more real than speech

89. Which of the following is NOT true?

A. Writing has become so important in our culture. B. It is easy to acquire the writing skill.

C. Writing represents speech, but not perfectly. D. Speech is essential but writing has important benefits.

90. The word “advantage” in the last paragraph most closely means .........

A. benefit  B. rudiments  C. domination  D. skill


Finish the second sentence in such a way that it has the same meaning as the one printed before it.

91. Steve said to Mike, “Don’t touch the electric wires”.
