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 from 33 to 42.

Noise is unwanted sound and is among the most pervasive pollutants today. Noise from road traffic, jet planes, jet skis, garbage trucks, construction equipment, manufacturing processes, lawn mowers, leaf blowers, and boom boxes, to name a few, are among the unwanted sounds that are routinely broadcast into the air.

The problem with noise is not only that it is unwanted, but also that it negatively affects human health and well-being. Problems related to noise include hearing loss, stress, high blood pressure, sleep loss, distraction and lost productivity, and a general reduction in the quality of life and opportunities for tranquillity.

We experience noise in a number of ways. On some occasions, we can be both the cause and the victim of noise, such as when we are operating noisy appliances or equipment. There are also instances when we experience noise generated by others just as people experience second-hand smoke. While in both instances, noises are equally damaging, second-hand noise is more troubling because it has negative impacts on us but is put into the environment by others, without our consent.

The air into which second-hand noise is emitted and on which it travels is a “commons”, a public good. It belongs to no one person or group, but to everyone. People, businesses, and organizations, therefore, do not have unlimited rights to broadcast noise as they please, as if the effects of noise were limited only to their private property. On the contrary, they have an obligation to use the commons in ways that are compatible with or do not detract from other uses.

People, businesses, and organizations that disregard the obligation to not interfere with others' use and enjoyment of the commons by producing noise pollution are, in many ways, acting like a bully in a school yard. Although perhaps unknowingly, they nevertheless disregard the rights of others and claim for themselves rights that are not theirs.

We have organized to raise awareness of noise pollution and help communities take back the commons from those acting like bullies. Our efforts include building a library of resources and tools concerning noise pollution, establishing links to other groups that have similar collections, establishing networks among local noise activists, assisting communities and activists who are working to reduce noise pollution, and monitoring and advocating for stronger noise controls.

Last year thieves broke into a Scottish stately home and stole one thing: a rhino horn trophy, which at 1.5 metres was the longest in the world. Meanwhile, in China, pharmaceuticals (31)______ have been building up collections of antqiue cups, bowls and figurines made from rhino horn, for the sole (32)______ of smashing them to powder to make the (33) _____ ingredient of many of their medicines. And in Zimbabwe, 34 poachers have so far died this year in (34)_____ of the black rhino.

‘It’s amazing the lengths people will go to to get rhino horn,’ said Lyster, of the World Wide Fund for Nature. These lengths (35)_____ why the rhino could be extinct within 10 years if trade in horns to the Far East is not stopped. This week, conservationists are meeting in Switzerland to plan a campaign to persuade those countries where rhino horn is part of the traditional medicine to switch to substitutes such as water buffalo horn.

The biggest threat to the survival of the rhinoceros is the refusal of four countries - China, Thailand, South Korea and Thaiwan - to enforce a ban (36)_____ domestic trading in rhino horn. Similar bans have worked well in Japan, Hong Kong and nearby Macau.

Rhino is included in many patent remedies for disorders ranging from high fever to nosebleeds. Horn is made (37)______ keratin, and has no proven medicinal powers. ‘If you want the same effect you might as well chew your fingernails,’ said Esmond Bradley Martin, a world authority on rhino horn who has just returned from China. Traditional substitutes, such as horn from bufffalo or saiga antelope, are (38)______ second best.

China is the country where the consumers of rhino horn are the largest, many people are making medicines for both home consumption and export to other Far Eastern countries. Martin found that many places have stocks of 10,000 kilograms of horns. This represents 3,500 rhinos, or the entire population of African black rhinos. These places use 650 kilograms a year. Traditional medicines made outside the official factories could consume much more.

‘This is a (an) (39)______  battle,’ said Lyster. (40)______ the battle may be harder than that against the trade in ivory, for there is a difference between the two commodities, Ivory is a luxury; rhino horn, people believe, could save the life of their child.
