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.

  A greenhouse is a building whose sides and roof are made of glass so that temperature inside is magnified. And it's used to grow plants that need temperatures. This is to illustrate an example of how man could be cau changes to the climate. These changes result from increasing the carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere, thus raising the surface temperature of the Earth. This is known as the "Greenhouse Effect".

  CO2 is a normal component of the atmosphere and until recently has not considered an air pollutant. But average global CO2 concentrations have increasing since 1860, with particularly sharp increase in 1958. The main reason for this continuous increase in CO2 build-up is the burning of fossil fuels. Duing the past 100 years, the CO2 content of the atmosphere has already risen by about 15% - from about 290 to about 340 parts per million. And it's still rising.

  Although the CO2 content of the atmosphere is only about 0.032%, it's a major factor in determining average global temperature. Incoming sunlight consists of many wavelengths including some very dangerous ones. But ozone in the upper atmosphere and water vapour and CO2 in the lower atmosphere filter out or destroy most of the harmful wavelengths, so what reaches the Earth is mostly visible light. It's absorbed by land, sea and cloud and is reradiated in the atmosphere as longer wavelength infrared radiation, or heat, as the Earth cools. Much of this infrared radiation is absorbed by CO2. The CO2 then radiates a portion of the absorbed heat energy back to the Earth to warm the atmosphere. Rather like the glass in greenhouse or a car window on sunny day, CO2 in the atmosphere acts as a one­way filter that allows visible light to enter the Earth's atmosphere, but prevents longer wavelength heat radiation from leaving. Assuming that energy is arriving from the sun at a constant rate, then as the level of CO2 increases, the average surface temperature of the earth should rise.

Question 10: What is the purpose of using a greenhouse?

A. To give an example of atmospheric changes caused by man.

B. To magnify temperature to grow plants requiring high temperatures.

C. To give an example of buildings whose sides and roof are made of glass.

D. To indicate the rising level of CO2 in the earth's atmosphere.

Question 11: What is NOT true according to the information from the passage?

A. CO2 allows sunlight to enter and leave the Earth's atmosphere.’

B. A portion of sunlight is filtered out before entering the Earth.

C. The sun emits some very dangerous wavelengths.

D. The level of CO2 has risen by as much as 15%.

Question 13: What is the best title for the passage?

A. The level of CO2 at present compared with that in the past.

B. The "Greenhouse Effect" used for growing plants.

C. The "Greenhouse Effect" and how CO2 warms the atmosphere.


D. Ozone and water vapour with filtering out harmful wavelengths.

Question 14: The word “visible in paragraph 3 is closest in meaning to........

SYMBOL FOR THE UNKNOWN

  The different kinds of X-ray machines now in use vary in size from small dental machines to machines so large they can photograph an automobile. Yet more than 100 years ago, no one had ever heard of an X-ray. In 1895, a German scientist named Wilhelm Roentgen noticed barium platinocyanide crystals glowing from an unknown source of light in a dark room. The man knew that there was a lighted bulb in the laboratory, but this bulb was totally screened by a tight casing of black cardboard. He concluded then that some unknown kind of light ray was passing through the screen to shine on the crystals.

  With great excitement, Roentgen studied these strange new rays. He called them X rays, because X is the scientific symbol which stands for the unknown. X rays, Roentgen discovered, could pass through cardboard, cloth, wooden boards, and even metals.

  Roentgen's discovery of X rays was tremendously important to modern medicine. Doctors depend on this valuable tool to help them diagnose many kinds of medical problems from broken bones to cancer. Industry and scientific research make widespread use of X rays, too. X ravs make it possible to measure the amount of ethyl in gasoline or to inspect metal, plastic, rubber, and other materials for flaws that do not appear on the surface.

  In these and other ways, the rays which mystified Roentgen in his laboratory long ago are used by scientists today.

Question 45: Roentgen called these strange new rays X rays because.....

A. what is still unknown is represented by the symbol X.

B. these rays had the shape of an X.

C. these rays were a symbol of the unknown.

D. these rays could, pass through cardboard, cloth, wooden boards, and even metals.

Question 46: While not directly stated, it may be inferred that........

A. X rays are only useful in medicine.

B. Roentgen had been looking for X rays before he discovered them.

C. X rays did not exist before 1800.

D. Scientific discoveries are sometimes made by accident.

Question 47: The worddiagnosein paragraph 3 is closest to the meaning of......

A. examine the cause  B. find out the reason

C. recognise the exact cause D. investigate carefully

C. a scientist named Roentgen. D. barium crystals.


Question 49: According to the article, X rays have found application in these fields except.....

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.

  A greenhouse is a building whose sides and roof are made of glass so that temperature inside is magnified. And it's used to grow plants that need temperatures. This is to illustrate an example of how man could be cau changes to the climate. These changes result from increasing the carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere, thus raising the surface temperature of the Earth. This is known as the "Greenhouse Effect".

  CO2 is a normal component of the atmosphere and until recently has not considered an air pollutant. But average global CO2 concentrations have increasing since 1860, with particularly sharp increase in 1958. The main reason for this continuous increase in CO2 build-up is the burning of fossil fuels. Duing the past 100 years, the CO2 content of the atmosphere has already risen by about 15% - from about 290 to about 340 parts per million. And it's still rising.

  Although the CO2 content of the atmosphere is only about 0.032%, it's a major factor in determining average global temperature. Incoming sunlight consists of many wavelengths including some very dangerous ones. But ozone in the upper atmosphere and water vapour and CO2 in the lower atmosphere filter out or destroy most of the harmful wavelengths, so what reaches the Earth is mostly visible light. It's absorbed by land, sea and cloud and is reradiated in the atmosphere as longer wavelength infrared radiation, or heat, as the Earth cools. Much of this infrared radiation is absorbed by CO2. The CO2 then radiates a portion of the absorbed heat energy back to the Earth to warm the atmosphere. Rather like the glass in greenhouse or a car window on sunny day, CO2 in the atmosphere acts as a one­way filter that allows visible light to enter the Earth's atmosphere, but prevents longer wavelength heat radiation from leaving. Assuming that energy is arriving from the sun at a constant rate, then as the level of CO2 increases, the average surface temperature of the earth should rise.

Question 24: What is the best title for the passage?

A. The "Greenhouse Effect" used for growing plants.

B. The level of CO2 at present compared with that in the past.

C. The "Greenhouse Effect" and how CO2 warms the atmosphere.

D. Ozone and water vapour with filtering out harmful wavelengths.

A. CO2 raises the surface temperature of the Earth.

B. CO2 is a by-product of the burning of fossil fuels.

C. CO2 is a normal component of the atmosphere.

D. Global CO2 concentrations have been increasing.

SYMBOL FOR THE UNKNOWN

  The different kinds of X-ray machines now in use vary in size from small dental machines to machines so large they can photograph an automobile. Yet more than 100 years ago, no one had ever heard of an X-ray. In 1895, a German scientist named Wilhelm Roentgen noticed barium platinocyanide crystals glowing from an unknown source of light in a dark room. The man knew that there was a lighted bulb in the laboratory, but this bulb was totally screened by a tight casing of black cardboard. He concluded then that some unknown kind of light ray was passing through the screen to shine on the crystals.

  With great excitement, Roentgen studied these strange new rays. He called them X rays, because X is the scientific symbol which stands for the unknown. X rays, Roentgen discovered, could pass through cardboard, cloth, wooden boards, and even metals.

  Roentgen's discovery of X rays was tremendously important to modern medicine. Doctors depend on this valuable tool to help them diagnose many kinds of medical problems from broken bones to cancer. Industry and scientific research make widespread use of X rays, too. X ravs make it possible to measure the amount of ethyl in gasoline or to inspect metal, plastic, rubber, and other materials for flaws that do not appear on the surface.

  In these and other ways, the rays which mystified Roentgen in his laboratory long ago are used by scientists today.
