SECTION 3: READING COMPREHENSION Read the following passages and choose the best answer (A, 8, C, or OJ to each question.


Passage 1 (Questions 41- 45) May 7, 1840 was the birthday of one of the most famous Russian composers of the nineteenth century: Peter Illich Tchaikovsky. The son of a mining inspector, Tchaikovsky studied music as a child and later studied composition at the S1. Petersburg Conservatory. His greatest period of productivity occurred between 1876 and 1890, during which time he enjoyed the patronage of Madame Von Meek, a woman he never met, who gave him a living stipend of about $1,000.00 a year. Madam Van Meck later terminated her friendship with Tchaikovsky, as well as his living allowance, when she herself was facing financial difficulties. It was during the time of Madam Von Meck's patronage, however, that Tchaikovsky created the music for which he is most famous, including the music for the ballets of Swan Lake and the Sleeping Beauty. Tchaikovsky's music, well known for its rich melodic and sometimes melancholy passages, was one of the first that brought serious dramatic music to dance. Before this, little attention had been given to the music behind the ,dance. Tchaikovsky died on November 6, 1893, ostensibly of cholera, though there are now some scholars who argue that he committed suicide. 41.What topic is the passage primarily concerned with?

This can be attributed to their unique flavor, attractiveness, richness as a source of vitamin C and A, and versatility as a food. The popularity of peppers can be attributed to the same factors, although they are usually not consumed in large enough quantities to make them an important nutritional factor in the diet.


The cultivated tomato originated in the Andes mountains of South America. It was introduced to the other areas of the :world by Indians and European travelers. The first report of the tomato in North America was in 1710 where it was grown primarily as an ornament plant. Tomatoes began gaining wide acceptance as a food plant in the United States between 1820 and 1850. Peppers are also native to tropical America and were grown by American tribes in both North and South America over 2,000 years ago. The small red hot peppers were discovered by Columbus in the West Indies and introduced into Europe where they became popular before gaining widespread acceptance in the United States. Peppers became one of the first New World foods used commercially in Europe. 46.The topic of the passage is A. food discoveries of early Europeans vegetables C. tomatoes and peppers than peppers 47.According to the passage, why are peppers not an important nutritional factor in a diet?

Passage 1 (Questions 41-45) Humanitarian Dorothea Dix was born in Hampden, Maine, in 1802. At the age of 19, she established a school for girls, the Dix Mansion School, in Boston, but had to close it in 1835 due to her poor health. She wrote and published the first of many books for children in 1824. In 1841, Dix accepted an invitation to teach classes at a prison in East Cambridge, Massachusetts. She was deeply disturbed by the sight of mentally-ill persons thrown in the jail and treated like criminals. For the next eighteen months, she toured Massachusetts institutions where other mental patients were confined and reported the shocking conditions she found to the state legislature. When improvements followed in Massachusetts, she turned her attention to the neighboring states and then to the West and South. Dix's work was interrupted by the Civil War; she served as superintendent of women hospital nurses for the federal government. Dix saw special hospitals for the mentally ill built in some fifteen states. Although her plan to obtain public land for her cause failed, she aroused concern for the problem of mental illness all over the United States as well as Canada and Europe. 41. In what year was the Dix Mansion School closed?

B. intervention B. migrate B. die B. relaxed

Dorothea Dix was NOT successful in her attempt to A. become superintendent of nurses children C. arouse concern for the mentally ill Passage 1 (Questions 46-50) Its a sound you will probably never hear, a sickened tree sending out a distress signal. But a group of scientists has heard the cries, and they think some insects also hear the trees and are drawn to them like vultures to a dying animal. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Forest Service fastened sensors to the bark of drought-stricken trees and clearly heard distress calls. According to one of the scientists, most parched trees transmit their plight in the 50 to 500-kilohertz range. (The unaided human ear can detect no more than 20 kilohertz.) Red oak, maple, white pine, and birch all make slightly different sounds in the form of vibration at the surface of the wood. The scientist think that the vibrations are created when the water

D. taught

44. Where was Dorothea Dix first able to bring about reforms in the

C. The West and South

B. publish books for D. obtain public land

columns inside tubes that run the length of the tree break, a result of too little water flowing through them. These fractured columns send out distinctive vibration patterns. Because some insects communicate at ultrasonic frequencies, they may pick up the trees' vibrations and attack the weakened trees. Researchers are now running tests with potted trees that have been deprived of water to see if the sound is what attracts the insects. "Water-stressed trees also smell differently from other trees, and they experience thermal changes, so insects could be responding to something other than sound," one scientist said. 46. Which of the following is the main topic of the passage? A. the vibrations produced by insects B. the mission of the U.S. Forest Service C. the effect of insects on trees D. the sounds made by trees 47.

320 different kinds of coral, many of which exist nowhere in the world. On land, scented trees somehow manage to survive in the soil that has grown up over hundreds of years from broken coral. Most of the hotels have been built on islands that were uninhabited for years. However, the guest bungalows, restaurants and electricity generators which provide Westerners with such a high level of comfort and luxury are almost hidden by the tall trees and bushes. But for an outsider to get a taste of the Maldives beyond their natural beauty, he or she should visit the island of Gan. Here a short bicycle ride takes you through areas where whole families are at work collecting coconuts. The people living here are not poor - the shops are full of goods, and every house has electricity. The Maldivians like their privacy, and after the evening prayer rings out from the mosque at sunset, all tourists must be out of the local villages and back in the hotel grounds. 51.

53. The writer finds it surprising that

The past few years have seen quite increased interest by women in offroad riding and mountain bikes seem to be gaining in popularity as a means to this end. In an effort to learn why, earlier this year readers of this column were invited to write in about their experience. The most frequently mentioned reason for trying a mountain bike was that a world existed out there that was waiting to be explored, but walking provided limited possibilities, and light touring bikes weren't felt to be tough enough for the job. Some began by way of hiring one or borrowing somebody else's while on holiday. For others, it was a husband, a father, a daughter or a "mad friend" that got them started. One woman claimed she would have never seen much of her husband if she hadn't started riding a mountain bike. Only about half had ridden with a group consisting of women only, but their experiences were strongly recommended. Overall, it was regarded as a positive and healthy experience, women being regarded as more supportive, more cooperative, more patient and less competitive than men. Such groups were more likely to take time to stop and notice things around. them, and to share the enjoyable experience of riding deep into the countryside, rather than to feel the need to ride for riding's sake or to become competitive. Men were considered too keen on taking risks, and showing off the strong points of their bicycles. However, some women felt that mixed company encouraged them to try harder. 56. What do the words "this end" (line 3) refer to? A. Having mountain bikes C. The gain in popularity A. to be discovered C. to be recommended B. Riding off-road D. A means B. to be invented D. to be considered

57. The words "to be explored" (line 6) is closest in meaning to

58. Why do many women take up mountain bikes? A. They want to spend more time with' their husbands or friends. B. They are interested in cycling with women's groups. C. They are trying to prove that they are as capable. as men. D. They want to get to areas that are difficult to reach otherwise. 59. What are the advantages of cycling in a women's group? A. The women do not have to try so hard. B. It is easier to compete with other women.

C. The group atmosphere is more pleasant. D. Everyone has similar bicycles. 60. The words "mixed company" means A. a group of women cycling together B. a group of men cycling together C. a family cycling together D. a group of both men and women cycling together

PART II - READING COMPREHENSION Read the following passages and choose the best answer (A, B, C or D) to each question. Passage 1 (Questions 41-45) Most educational specialists believe that early schooling should provide children with an awareness of their own abilities and the self-confidence to use these abilities. One approach recognized by many experts as promoting these qualities is the Montessori method, first practiced by Maria Montessori of Italy in the early 1990s. Nancy McConnick Rambusch is credited with popularizing the method in the United States, where today there are over 400 Montessori schools. The method helps children learn for themselves by putting them instructional materials and tasks that facilitate acts of discovery and manipulation. Through such exploration, children develop their sense of touch and learn how to do everyday tasks without adult assistance. Other benefits include improvement in language skills and acquaintance with elements of science, music and art. 41.What is the main purpose of this passage? A. To explain the role of early education in child development B. To describe the development of the Montessori method C. To discuss the life and work of Maria Montessori D.

A. Development of tactile senses C. Capacity to perform adult tasks A. has little long-lasting benefit for children United States C. does not accomplish what it claims to achieve education Passage 2 (Questions 46 - 50) Samuel Morse accomplished something that is rarely accomplished: he achieved fame and success in two widely differing areas. Throughout his youth, he studied art, and after graduating from Yale University he went to London in 1811 where his early artistic endeavor met with acclaim. In London he was awarded the gold medal of the Adelphi Arts Society for a clay figure of Hercules, and his painting The Dying Hercules and The Judgement of Jupiter were selected for exhibit by the Royal Academy. Later in life after returning to America, Morse became known for his portraits. His portraits of the Marquis de Lafayette today are on exhibit in the New York City Hall and the New York Public Library. In addition to his artistic accomplishments. Morse is also well-known today for his work developing the telegraph and what is known as Morse Code. He first had the idea of trying to develop the develop the telegraph in 1832 on board a ship returning to America from Europe. It took eleven long years of ridicule by his associate, disinterest by the public, and a shortage of funds before Congress finally allocated $ 30.000 to Morse for his project. With these funds. Morse hung a telegraph line from Washington, D.C. to Baltimore, and on May 24, 1844, message in the dots and dashes of Morse Code was successfully transmitted.

Funds were transmitted from Washington to Baltimore. Passage 3 (Questions 51-55) Though harvesting ice is not a new concept, recently it has been considered in a new way. Scientists have been studying this idea of harvesting ice as a possible solution to the problem of the world's dwindling fresh water supply. Ninety percent of the earth's fresh water is in the icecap of Antarctica. If only 10 percent of that ice could be towed to civilization, it could provide water for 500 million people. But the problem, of course is one of melting. How can a giant iceberg be towed across the sea without melting? The answer could lie in enclosing the floating ice in a huge cylindrical container made of a high strength synthetic fabric. If the iceberg were nudged into the fabric container, which is opened at both ends, then the ends could be scaled and the sea water pumped out. After that it could be towed to civilization. The melting rate would be slowed down and the synthetic cocoon would act as a holding tank for the water. Engineering this project, which might include a container up to one kilometer length and 100 meters in diameter, would be a feat, but engineers say it is possible. After all, fishermen in North Australia sometimes use nets 8 kilometers long and 20 meters across.

51. The word concept' in line 1 is most similar to which of the following?

A. reinforce the feasibility of the project


B. compare fishermen to engineers C. contrast iceberg containers and fishing nets D. define the size of the container Passage 4 (Questions 56 - 60) The planet Earth is 4,600 million years old. It is difficult for us to think about such all enormous length of time because it has little meaning for us. We could, however, simplify the idea to make it more understandable. We can compare the, planet Earth to, a person of forty-six years of age. Nothing is known about the first seven years of this person's life. Very little information exists about the middle period either. It was only at the age of forty-two that the Earth began to flower. Dinosaurs and great reptiles did not appear until one year ago, when the planet was forty-five. Mammals only arrived eight months ago. In the middle of last week man-like apes became ape-like men and began to communicate with each other. Last weekend, the Ice of Age covered the Earth. Modem man has only been around for four hours. During the last hour man discovered agriculture. The Industrial Revolution and the rise of large cities began just sixty seconds ago. During that short time, modern man has made a rubbish tip of the Earth. In one minute, he has increased his numbers to terrible proportions and has caused the death of hundreds of species of animals. He has robbed and destroy the planet in his search for fuels. No he stands like a violent, spoilt child, delighted at the speed of his rise to power, on the edge of the final mass destruction and of killing all the life which exists in the solar system. 56.The passage tells us that A. a great deal is known about how the Earth was created. B. life on Earth began relatively recently. C. more is known about the first part of the Earth's life than the middle part. D. scientists are well-informed about the middle part of the Earth's life.

PART II - READING COMPREHENSION Read the following passages and choose the best answer (A, B, C 01' D) to each question. Passage 1 (Questions 41- 45) Most educational specialists believe that early schooling should provide children with an awareness of their own abilities and the self-confidence to use these abilities. One approach recognized by many experts as promoting these qualities is the Montessori method, first practiced by Maria Montessori of Italy in the early 1990s. Nancy McCormick Rambusch is credited with popularizing the method in the United States, where today there are over 400 Montessori schools. The method helps children learn for themselves by providing them instructional materials and tasks that facilitate acts of discovery and manipulation. Through such exploration, children develop their sense of touch and learn how to do everyday tasks without adult assistance. Other benefits include improvement in language skills, and acquaintance with elements of science, music, and art.
41. What is the main purpose of this passage?

A. To explain the role of early education in child development. B. To describe the development of the Montessori method. C. To discuss the life and work of Maria Montessori. D. To demonstrate how children learn social and cultural values. 42. According to the passage, who was first responsible for spreading the Montessori method in the United States? A. Nancy McCormick Rambusch. B. A prominent educational expert. C. Maria Montessori. D. An administrator in the Department of Education. 43.

Which of the following is NOT mentioned as a benefit of the Montessori method? A. Development of tactile senses. B. Improvement of language ability. C. Capacity to perform adult tasks. D. Knowledge of arts and sciences. 45. The author of this passage probably feels that the Montessori method. A. has little long-lasting benefit for children B. will lose its popularity in the United States C. does not accomplish what it claims to achieve D. is an effective means of child education


Passage 2 (Questions 46 - 50) Accreditation is a system for setting national standards of quality in education. The United States is unique in the world because its accreditation system is not administered by the government, but rather by committees of educators and private agencies like the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and the Society of Engineers. Before registering to study in any educational institution in the United States, a student should make certain that the institution is accredited in order to assure that the school has a recognized standard of organization, instruction, and financial support. Foreign students should be particularly careful to check an institution's accreditation because other governments or future employers may not recognize a degree earned from a school that has not received accreditation. If a college is accredited, catalogs and brochures will usually indicate the accreditation status. If you are not sure about a certain school, don't hesitate to check its reputation with an education officer at the nearest U.S. embassy.
46. The title that best expresses the ideas in this passage is __________.

A. Studying in the United States B. Accreditation C. How to Find the Best School D. The Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools 47.

A. does not offer a degree B. may close because of financial disorganization C. is administered by the government

D. is better than an accredited school Passage 3 (Questions 51 - 55) After inventing dynamite, Swedish-born Alfred Nobel became a very rich man. However, he foresaw its universally destructive powers too late. Nobel preferred not to be remembered as the inventor of dynamite, so in 1895, just two weeks before his death, he created a fund to be used for awarding prizes to people who had made worthwhile contributions to humanity. Originally there were five awards: literature, physics, chemistry, medicine and peace. Economics was added in 1968, just sixty-seven years after the first awards ceremony. Nobel's original legacy of nine million dollars was invested, and the interest on this sum is used for the awards which vary from $30,000 to $125,000. Every year on December 10, the anniversary of Nobel's death, the awards (gold medal, illuminated diploma, and money) are presented to the winners. Sometimes politics plays an important role in the judges' decision.

A sales representative will be glad to show you samples of the designs and colors available. Simply choose the design and color that you prefer, and leave your name, address, and employer's name with the sales representative. Students with scholarships should provide their sponsor's name instead of an employer's name. A fiftydollar security deposit must be paid prior to telephone installation, and may be made by check, cash, Mastercard, or Visa. On the date that your telephone is to be installed, a responsible person, such as an apartment manager, must be at home to unlock the door for the serviceman.
