Ma
iage nowadays is a choice people make on their own, but this has not always been the case in society. Thousands of years ago, the average lifespan was shorter than it is today. A man usually lived until he was about 40 years old, while women died even sooner because of childbirth. There were many wars and illnesses, and people had to protect themselves by having more children while they were still young. The parents lived through their children.
Ma
iage was not so much a romantic love story but a business transaction, or deal. Most ma
iages were a
anged between parents while their children were still very young. It was the custom that the fathers made the decision on whom their children were going to ma
y. The mothers had little say in it since they rarely made any decisions outside the household. The fathers would meet to a
ange the wedding date and the money given for the
ide on her wedding date. The more money and land a girl had, the more chances she had to ma
y well. Therefore, it was important that her father choose the
idegroom very well. Usually, it was someone who came from a good family or who was rich too. It was very unlikely that people ma
ied outside their social class. A few well-off and rich merchants got to ma
y poorer noblewomen and became King’s business advisors. In a way, poor peasants had an easier choice as it was less important whom they ma
ied.
The practice of a
anged ma
iage is still common in some countries in the Middle East, such as India or Pakistan. Here, social classes are still strongly divided and very well-kept. Often, however, a
anged ma
iages are a sign that people do not want to let go of the past, which gives them comfort and security in an ever-changing world.
(Adapted from Longman Essence Reading, Vol. 2)
Question 36. What does the passage mainly discuss?
A. Ma
iage as a business transaction today. B. Mothers' roles in their children's ma
iage.
C. Ma
iage practices in modern society.        D. The practice of a
anged ma
iage.
Question 37. The word "it" in paragraph 1 refers to_______.
A. ma
iage  B. a choice  C. society  D. the average lifespan

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the co
ect answer to each of the questions from 43 to 50.
A ghostly animal creeps silently through a Florida swamp. It’s a rare type of big cat known as a Florida panther, one of only 80 to 100 such panthers left in the world. Scientists must work to save these remaining panthers from extinction, but their secretive nature is making it difficult. They are attaching a special transmitter to each Florida panther so they can follow their movements, range, and habits. The technology these transmitters use is called satellite tracking.
The scientists are dedicated professionals, but they are not pioneers. Their colleagues before them have attached tiny transmitters to many different kinds of wild animals, including birds, fish, and big cats. So the Florida scientists are using their methods. Firstly, they must trap and tranquillize the panther. Then, the transmitter is attached to a harness and strapped to the panther’s body. Each harness is custom designed and manually adjusted for panthers so it fits comfortably. Scientists don’t want the transmitter to interfere with the panther’s natural habits. The point of tracking them is to find out as much as they can about their natural habits.
Once the tracking transmitter is in place, the information it records is sent to an o
iting satellite. The satellite can see the transmitter that is attached to the panther, even when it is out of sight of a biologist on the ground. The satellite collects information from the transmitter about the panther’s exact location. Once the information is received, it is transmitted back to Earth so it can be recorded by the scientists.
Scientists can use the information in many different ways. They can follow the panthers on the ground and observe their behavior. Alternatively, they can use the information to determine the panthers’ ranges and to understand their social patterns. They can also track how environmental changes like weather conditions affect their movements and health. All this information can be used to provide ideal conditions for the endangered panthers. It can also be used to protect the panthers from danger.
In the end, the panther silently slips away through the trees. Around its shoulders a transmitter is sending signals via satellite to a dedicated biologist. The biologist is using the information the transmitter provides to save the Florida panthers from extinction. With the help of satellite tracking these beautiful cats have a better chance of survival in the modern world.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the co
ect answer to each of the questions from 43 to 50.
A ghostly animal creeps silently through a Florida swamp. It’s a rare type of big cat known as a Florida panther, one of only 80 to 100 such panthers left in the world. Scientists must work to save these remaining panthers from extinction, but their secretive nature is making it difficult. They are attaching a special transmitter to each Florida panther so they can follow their movements, range, and habits. The technology these transmitters use is called satellite tracking.
The scientists are dedicated professionals, but they are not pioneers. Their colleagues before them have attached tiny transmitters to many different kinds of wild animals, including birds, fish, and big cats. So the Florida scientists are using their methods. Firstly, they must trap and tranquillize the panther. Then, the transmitter is attached to a harness and strapped to the panther’s body. Each harness is custom designed and manually adjusted for panthers so it fits comfortably. Scientists don’t want the transmitter to interfere with the panther’s natural habits. The point of tracking them is to find out as much as they can about their natural habits.
Once the tracking transmitter is in place, the information it records is sent to an o
iting satellite. The satellite can see the transmitter that is attached to the panther, even when it is out of sight of a biologist on the ground. The satellite collects information from the transmitter about the panther’s exact location. Once the information is received, it is transmitted back to Earth so it can be recorded by the scientists.
Scientists can use the information in many different ways. They can follow the panthers on the ground and observe their behavior. Alternatively, they can use the information to determine the panthers’ ranges and to understand their social patterns. They can also track how environmental changes like weather conditions affect their movements and health. All this information can be used to provide ideal conditions for the endangered panthers. It can also be used to protect the panthers from danger.
In the end, the panther silently slips away through the trees. Around its shoulders a transmitter is sending signals via satellite to a dedicated biologist. The biologist is using the information the transmitter provides to save the Florida panthers from extinction. With the help of satellite tracking these beautiful cats have a better chance of survival in the modern world.
