  1. Read the passage below and choose one correct answer for each question.

Last week I went to visit Atlantic College, an excellent private college in Wale. Unusually, it gives young people much needed experience of life outside the classroom as well as the opportunity to study for their exams. The students, who are aged between 16 and 18 and come from all over the world, spend the morning studying. In the afternoon they go out and do a really useful activity, such as helping on the farm, looking after people with learning difficulties, or checking for pollution in rivers.

One of the great things about Atlantic College, students is that they come from many different social backgrounds and countries. As few can afford the fees of £20,000 over two years, grants are available. A quarter of the students are British and many of those can only attend because they receive government’s help.

“I really admire the college for trying to encourage international understandings among young people”, as Barbara Molenkamp, a student from the Netherlands, said. “You learn to live with people and respect them, even the ones you don’t like. During the summer holidays my mother couldn’t believe how much less I argued with my sister.”

To sum up, Atlantic College gives its students an excellent education, using methods which really seem to work.

  1. What is the writer trying to do in the text?
  2. give an opinion about a particular student.
  3. give an opinion about a special type of education.
  4. describe his own experience of education.
  5. describe the activities the students do in their free time.
  6. What can a reader find out from this text?
  7. how to become a student at Atlantic College.
  8. what kind of program Atlantic College offers.
  9. what the British education system is like.
  10. how to get along better with other people.
  11. What is the writer’s opinion of Atlantic College?
  12. It doesn’t allow students enough study time.
  13. Its students are taught to like each other.
  14. It doesn’t give good value for money.
  15. Its way of teaching is successful.
  16. How has Barbara changed since being at Atlantic College?
  17. She knows a lot about other countries.
  18. She is more confident than her sister now.
  19. She finds it easier to get on with other people.
  20. She prefers her new friends to her family.
  21. Which advertisement uses correct information about Atlantic College?

A.Study at Atlantic College.Courses for 16-18 year olds.Lessons all morning, sport in the afternoon

  1. Study at Atlantic College.Courses for 16-18 year olds.Morning lessons and afternoon activities. Help with fees available

Probably the most important factor governing the sererity of forest fires is weather. Hot, dry weather lowers the moisture content of fuels.once a fire has started,wind is extremely critical because it influences the oxygen supply and the rate of spread. Forest type and forest conditions are also important factors. For example, fire is more likely to occur in conifers than in hardwoods; slash-covered or brushy areas are especially hazardous because the rate at which combustion consumes fuels is proportional to fuel volume and surface area.

Some fies are caused by lightning; others are caused by people. Those caused by people may be accidental or intertional ( incendiary). The causes of fire in the United States show large regional differences. In the Rocky Moutains more than 70 percent of the fires are caused by lightning, whereas incendiary fires amount to only about 1 percent. In contrast, more than 40 percent of the fires in the South are incendiary, whereas lightning causes only 1 percent.

One of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The Great Pyramid of Giza was a monument of wisdom and prophecy built as a tomb for Pharaoh Cheops in 2720 BC. Despite its antiquity, certain aspects of its construction make it one of the truly great wonders of the world. The thirteen- acre structure near the Nile River is a solid mass of stone blocks covered with limestone. Inside are the number of hidden passageways and the burial chamber for the Pharaoh. It is the largest single structure in the world. The four sides of the Pyramid are aligned almost exactly on true North, South, East and West- an incredible engineering feat. The ancient Egyptians were sun worshipers and great astronomers, so computations for the Great Pyramid were based on astronomical observations.

Explorations and detailed examinations of the base of the structure reveal many interesting lines. Further scientific study indicates that these represent a type of timeline of events- past present and future. Many of the events have been interpreted and found to coincide with known facts of the past. Others are prophesied for future generations and are currently under investigation. Many believe that pyramids have supernatural powers and this one is no exception. Some researchers even associate it with extraterrestrial being of the ancient past. Was this superstructure made by ordinary being, or one built by a race far superior to any known today?

  3. to enable the pharaoh’s family to bring food for the journey after life.
  4. to keep grave robbers from finding the tomb and the treasure buried with the pharaoh.

In the modern world, there’s a wealth of leisure activities to choose from. Entertainment industries compete for your leisure time.

Read the passage below carefully and choose the correct answer A, B, C, or D.

Many years ago, people often said  “a woman’s place is in the home ”. But Americans do not feel that way any more. Today, women make up about 43 percent of the America labor force. There are about 45 million working women in the United States, and a large number of them are married women with children. In 1980, for the first time in the nation’s history there were more working wives than household wives. Looking back to 1940, we can see a picture of some very rapid change.

As far back as 700B.C., man has talked about children being cared for by wolves. Romuhts and Remus, the legendary twin founders of-Rome, were purported to have been cared for by wolves. It is believed that when a she-wolf loses ‘her litter, she seeks a human child to take its place.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon moves in front of the Sun and hides at least some part of the Sun from the earth. In a partial eclipse, the Moon covers part of the Sun; in an annual eclipse, the Moon covers the center of the Sun, leaving a bright ring of light around the Moon; in a total eclipse, the Sun is completely covered by the Moon.

It seems rather improbable that a celestial body size of the Moon could completely block out the tremendously immense Sun, as happens during a total eclipse, but this is exactly what happens. Although the Moon is considerably smaller in size than the Sun, the Moon is able to cover the Sun because of their relative distances from Earth. A total eclipse can last up to 7 minutes, during which time the Moon’s shadow moves across Earth at a rate of about 6 kilometers per second.

Most people think of deserts as dry, flat areas with little vegetation and little or no rainfall, but this is hardly true. Many deserts have varied geographical formations ranging from soft, rolling hills to stark, jagged cliffs, and most deserts have a permanent source of water. Although deserts do not receive a high amount of rainfall – to be classified as a desert, an area must get less than twenty-five centimeters of rainfall per year – there are many plants that thrive on only small amounts of water, and deserts are often full of such plant life.

Desert plants have a variety of mechanisms for obtaining the water needed for survival. Some plants, such as cactus, are able to store large amounts of water to last until the next rainfall. Other plants, such as the mesquite, have extraordinarily deep root systems that allow them to obtain water from far below the desert’s arid surface.

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 61 to 70.

The hippopotamus is the third largest land animal, smaller only than the elephant and the rhinoceros. Its name comes from two Greek words which mean “river horse”. The long name of this animal is often shortened to the easier to handle term “hippo.”

The hippo has a natural affinity for the water. It does not float on top of the water; instead, it can easily walk along the bottom of a body of water. The hippo commonly remains underwater for three to five minutes and has been known to stay under for up to half an hour before coming up for air.

In spite of its name, the hippo has relatively little in common with the horse and instead has a number of interesting similarities in common with the whale. When a hippo comes up after a stay at the bottom of a lake or river, it releases air through a blowhole, just like a whale.

  1. Read the passage below and choose one correct answer for each question.

Last week I went to visit Atlantic College, an excellent private college in Wale. Unusually, it gives young people much needed experience of life outside the classroom as well as the opportunity to study for their exams. The students, who are aged between 16 and 18 and come from all over the world, spend the morning studying. In the afternoon they go out and do a really useful activity, such as helping on the farm, looking after people with learning difficulties, or checking for pollution in rivers.

One of the great things about Atlantic College, students is that they come from many different social backgrounds and countries. As few can afford the fees of £20,000 over two years, grants are available. A quarter of the students are British and many of those can only attend because they receive government’s help.

“I really admire the college for trying to encourage international understandings among young people”, as Barbara Molenkamp, a student from the Netherlands, said. “You learn to live with people and respect them, even the ones you don’t like. During the summer holidays my mother couldn’t believe how much less I argued with my sister.”

To sum up, Atlantic College gives its students an excellent education, using methods which really seem to work.

  1. What is the writer trying to do in the text?
  2. give an opinion about a particular student.
  3. give an opinion about a special type of education.
  4. describe his own experience of education.
  5. describe the activities the students do in their free time.

  11. What is the writer’s opinion of Atlantic College?
  12. It doesn’t allow students enough study time.
  13. Its students are taught to like each other.

  18. She is more confident than her sister now.
  19. She finds it easier to get on with other people.

Probably the most important factor governing the sererity of forest fires is weather. Hot, dry weather lowers the moisture content of fuels.once a fire has started,wind is extremely critical because it influences the oxygen supply and the rate of spread. Forest type and forest conditions are also important factors. For example, fire is more likely to occur in conifers than in hardwoods; slash-covered or brushy areas are especially hazardous because the rate at which combustion consumes fuels is proportional to fuel volume and surface area.

Some fies are caused by lightning; others are caused by people. Those caused by people may be accidental or intertional ( incendiary). The causes of fire in the United States show large regional differences. In the Rocky Moutains more than 70 percent of the fires are caused by lightning, whereas incendiary fires amount to only about 1 percent. In contrast, more than 40 percent of the fires in the South are incendiary, whereas lightning causes only 1 percent.

One of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The Great Pyramid of Giza was a monument of wisdom and prophecy built as a tomb for Pharaoh Cheops in 2720 BC. Despite its antiquity, certain aspects of its construction make it one of the truly great wonders of the world. The thirteen- acre structure near the Nile River is a solid mass of stone blocks covered with limestone. Inside are the number of hidden passageways and the burial chamber for the Pharaoh. It is the largest single structure in the world. The four sides of the Pyramid are aligned almost exactly on true North, South, East and West- an incredible engineering feat. The ancient Egyptians were sun worshipers and great astronomers, so computations for the Great Pyramid were based on astronomical observations.

Explorations and detailed examinations of the base of the structure reveal many interesting lines. Further scientific study indicates that these represent a type of timeline of events- past present and future. Many of the events have been interpreted and found to coincide with known facts of the past. Others are prophesied for future generations and are currently under investigation. Many believe that pyramids have supernatural powers and this one is no exception. Some researchers even associate it with extraterrestrial being of the ancient past. Was this superstructure made by ordinary being, or one built by a race far superior to any known today?

In the modern world, there’s a wealth of leisure activities to choose from. Entertainment industries compete for your leisure time.

Read the passage below carefully and choose the correct answer A, B, C, or D.

Many years ago, people often said  “a woman’s place is in the home ”. But Americans do not feel that way any more. Today, women make up about 43 percent of the America labor force. There are about 45 million working women in the United States, and a large number of them are married women with children. In 1980, for the first time in the nation’s history there were more working wives than household wives. Looking back to 1940, we can see a picture of some very rapid change. In 1940, only 15 percent of married women held jobs.

Today,  most young women choose to work even when they have young children. Why do they work? The most important reason is that they need to earn money. But another reason is that women today are better educated and they have more opportunities to work in various professions than women had earlier.

As far back as 700B.C., man has talked about children being cared for by wolves. Romuhts and Remus, the legendary twin founders of-Rome, were purported to have been cared for by wolves. It is believed that when a she-wolf loses ‘her litter, she seeks a human child to take its place.

This seemingly preposterous idea did not become credible until the late tenth century when a French doctor actually found a naked ten year-old boy wandering in the woods. He did not walk erect, could not speak intelligibly, nor could he relate to people. He only growled and stared at them. Finally the doc­tor won the boy’s confidence and began to work with him.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon moves in front of the Sun and hides at least some part of the Sun from the earth. In a partial eclipse, the Moon covers part of the Sun; in an annual eclipse, the Moon covers the center of the Sun, leaving a bright ring of light around the Moon; in a total eclipse, the Sun is completely covered by the Moon.

It seems rather improbable that a celestial body size of the Moon could completely block out the tremendously immense Sun, as happens during a total eclipse, but this is exactly what happens. Although the Moon is considerably smaller in size than the Sun, the Moon is able to cover the Sun because of their relative distances from Earth. A total eclipse can last up to 7 minutes, during which time the Moon’s shadow moves across Earth at a rate of about 6 kilometers per second.

  12. somewhere in the sky b. within the Moon’s shadow c. on the surface of the Sun d. inside Earth’s atmosphere
  13. What is the meaning of block out in line 5?
  14. Square b. Cover c. Evaporate d. Shrink
  15. According to the passage, how can the Moon hide the Sun during a total eclipse?
  16. The fact that the Moon is closer to Earth than the Sun makes up for the Moon’s smaller size.
  17. The Moon can only obscure the Sun because of the Moon’s great distance from the Earth.
  18. Because the Sun is relatively close to Earth, the Sun can be eclipsed by the Moon.
  19. The moon hides the Sun because of the Moon’s considerable size.

Most people think of deserts as dry, flat areas with little vegetation and little or no rainfall, but this is hardly true. Many deserts have varied geographical formations ranging from soft, rolling hills to stark, jagged cliffs, and most deserts have a permanent source of water. Although deserts do not receive a high amount of rainfall – to be classified as a desert, an area must get less than twenty-five centimeters of rainfall per year – there are many plants that thrive on only small amounts of water, and deserts are often full of such plant life.

Desert plants have a variety of mechanisms for obtaining the water needed for survival. Some plants, such as cactus, are able to store large amounts of water to last until the next rainfall. Other plants, such as the mesquite, have extraordinarily deep root systems that allow them to obtain water from far below the desert’s arid surface.

In spite of its name, the hippo has relatively little in common with the horse and instead has a number of interesting similarities in common with the whale. When a hippo comes up after a stay at the bottom of a lake or river, it releases air through a blowhole, just like a whale.
