The standard criterion for the survival of a species is its success in competing with other species and adapting to slowly changing environments. Yet an equally important criterion is the ability of a species to survive random global ecological catastrophes due to impacts. C. The group conducting the study concluded from a detailed analysis that impacts from meteorites can indeed be hazardous. Following each mass extinction. To explain why as many as half of the species on Earth at the time are believed to have become extinct at the end of the Cretaceous C. According to paragraph 3. careful study shows that this risk is quite small. C. 1. how did scientists determine that a large meteorite had impacted Earth? A. B. 4. To support the claim that the mass extinction at the end of the Cretaceous is the best-documented of the dozen or so mass extinctions in the geological record B. The word “pose” in the passage is closest in meaning to A. In paragraph 2. covering up 6. the majority of all extinctions of species may be due to such impacts. According to some estimates. Impacts by meteorites represent one mechanism that could cause global catastrophes and seriously influence the evolution of life all over the planet. extending C. digging out B. Although there is always some risk that a large impact could occur. Which of the following can be inferred from paragraph 3 about the location of the meteorite impact in Mexico? A. The location of the impact site in Mexico was kept secret by geologists from 1980 to 1990. Earth is a target in a cosmic shooting gallery. why does the author include the information that dinosaurs had flourished for tens of millions of years and then suddenly disappeared? A. It was a well-known fact that the impact had occurred in the Yucatán region. model C. The Yucatán region was chosen by geologists as the most probable impact site because of its climate. present 2. Earth became cold and dark for several months. They were alerted by archaeologists who had been excavating in the Yucatán region. Geologists knew that there had been an impact before they knew where it had occurred. Such a perspective fundamentally changes our view of biological evolution. In 1991 the United States Congress asked NASA to investigate the hazard posed today by large impacts on Earth. . To explain why paleontologists have always been intrigued by the mass extinction at the end of the Cretaceous D. claim B. 5. D. A large amount of dust blocked sunlight from Earth. They discovered a large crater in the Yucatán region of Mexico. assume D. They located a meteorite with a mass of over a trillion tons. To provide evidence that an impact can be large enough to disturb the environment of the entire planet and cause an ecological disaster 3. According to paragraph 4. there is a sudden evolutionary burst as new species develop to fill the ecological niches opened by the event. all of the following statements are true of the impact at the end of the Cretaceous period EXCEPT: A. B. destroying D.group. subject to random violent events that were unsuspected a few decades ago. They found a unique layer of sediment worldwide. The word “excavating” in the passage is closest in meaning to A. B. D.

Since most violent events on Earth occur randomly.C 4. The ability of a species to compete and adapt to a gradually changing environment is not the only ability that is essential for survival. nobody realized that Earth is exposed to unpredictable violent impacts from space. New elements were formed in Earth’s crust. Earth became the target of random violent events originating in outer space. identified after careful study B. The United States Congress D. The problem. C. According to the passage. C.B 5. 7. the ability to survive such impacts is the most important factor for the survival of a species.

The phrase “tentatively identified” in the passage is closest in meaning to A. easily identified 8.

emissions must be communicated to our descendants of at least 10. 1. The establishment of such an association of insiders holding powerful knowledge not available except in mythic form to nonmembers would be a dangerous precedent for future social developments. So. In the event of global catastrophe. human society in the distant future may be well aware of the hazards of radiation. nor that it could survive with its original meaning intact. We cannot be sure that society won’t have slipped backward into an age of barbarism due to any of several catastrophic events. A second defect is more difficult to dismiss. any message indicated to future reception and decipherment must be as universally understandable as possible. This so-called atomic priesthood would be entrusted with keeping knowledge of this tradition alive through millennia and developing the tradition into a kind of mythical taboo forbidding people to tamper in a way with the nuclear waste sites. cavities D. it is quite possible that humans of the distant future will be on the far side of a broken link of communication and technological understanding. Sebeok’s group proposed a “relay system” in which information is passed on over relatively short periods of time. This proposal has been criticized because of the possibility of a break in continuity of the original message. Other media storage methods were considered and rejected for similar reasons. Furthermore.000 years hence. But the belief in constant technological advancement is based on our perceptions of advances made throughout history and prehistory. Given this restriction. openings C. Critics point out that the atomic priesthood could use its secret knowledge to control those who are scientifically ignorant. The message then to be renewed and redesigned if necessary for the following three generations and so on over the required time span. fissures . In this way information could be relayed into the future and avoid the possibility of physical degradation. The word "chambers" in the passage is closest in meaning to ________ . So the task became one of finding a way to tell future societies about the risk posed by these deadly deposits. Sebeok suggested the only possible solution was the formation of a committee of guardians of knowledge. there is no guarantee that any warning or sanction passed on for millennia would be obeyed. Only the initiated atomic priesthood of experts would have the scientific knowledge to fully understand the danger. To counterbalance this possibility. Of course. electricity supplies might not be available in 300 generations. A. The problem then becomes how to inform our descendants that they must avoid areas of potential radioactive seepage given that they may not understand any currently existing language and may have no historical or cultural memory. It was soon realized by the specialists assigned the task of devising the communication system that material in which the message was written might not physically endure the great lengths of time demanded. Those outside the priesthood would be kept away by a combination of rituals and legends designed to warn off intruders. just three generations ahead. The task force under the linguist Thomas Sebeok finally agreed that no foolproof way would be found to send a message across so many generations and have it survive physically and be decipherable by a people with few cultural similarities to us. Its task would be to dedicate itself to maintaining and passing the knowledge of the whereabouts and dangers of the nuclear waste deposits. Besides. This is the problem of social exclusiveness brought about through possession of vital knowledge. The second law of thermodynamics shows that all material disintegrates over time. however. partitions B. Technological advances may one day provide the solutions to this dilemma. Even computers that might carry the message cannot be expected to endure long enough. whether the result of nature such as the onset of a new ice age or perhaps mankind’s failure to solve the scourges of war and pollution.

In paragraph 4. knowledge B.the possible misuse of exclusive knowledge C. to show that knowledge can be sustained over millennia C. How to choose burial sites so as to minimize dangers to people. According to paragraph 7. To contrast Sebeok's ideas with those proposed by his main critics D. why is the proposed committee of guardians referred to as the "atomic priesthood"? A. the nonmembers turning knowledge into dangerous mythical forms B. the second defect of the atomic priesthood proposal is that it could lead to _________ . to contrast the potential life span of knowledge with that of material objects 6. to demonstrate the reason nuclear hazards must be communicated 4. the author explains the possible circumstances of future societies________ . worries D. A. How to reduce the radioactive life of nuclear waste materials B. The word "scourges" in the passage is closest in meaning to ________ . Because they would be an exclusive religious order D. A.2. According to the author. A. the author mentions the second law of thermodynamics __________ . In paragraph 2. committee C. pressures B. A. to warn about the possible natural catastrophe B. A. guardians 7. to highlight humankind's inability to resolve problems D. the priesthood's criticism of points concerning vital knowledge . the establishment of a scientifically ignorant society D. To compensate for the fact that meaning will not stable over long periods of time 9. 3. solution D. why did the task force under Sebeok propose a relay system for passing on information? A. to question the value of advances C. B. To support the belief that breaks in communication are inevitable over time C. annoyances 5. In paragraph 5. The word "Its" in the passage refers to _________ . How to notify future generations of the risks of nuclear contamination D. Because they would use rituals and legends to maintain their exclusiveness C. Because they would develop mythical taboos surrounding their traditions 8. to support the view that nuclear waste will disperse with time B. What problem faced the commission assigned to deal with the burial of nuclear waste? A. afflictions C. How to form a committee that could adequately express various nuclear risks C. To show that Sebeok 's ideas created more problems than they solved B.
