Twice in the twentieth century. evocative D. but none is so dramatic as the Cretaceous event. amiable B. The explosion lifted about 100 trillion tons of dust into the atmosphere.C 8. Such impacts continue to pose a natural hazard to life on Earth. those environmental disasters could have been responsible for the mass extinction. This break in Earth’s history is marked by a mass extinction. now deeply buried in sediment. starting widespread fires that must have consumed most terrestrial forest sand grassland. may create opportunities for another . conceivable C. far-away B.D 4. excavating a crater about twice as large as the lunar crater Tycho. The body that impacted Earth at the end of the Cretaceous period was a meteorite with a mass of more than a trillion tons and a diameter of at least 10 kilometers. including the death of the dinosaurs. By 1990 geologists had located the impact site itself in the Yucatán region of Mexico. was originally about 200 kilometers in diameter. the Cretaceous mass extinction has always intrigued paleontologists because it marks the end of the age of the dinosaurs. Then. What is a catastrophe for one group of living things. it is clear that impacts of this size do occur and that their results can be catastrophic. Several other mass extinctions in the geological record have been tentatively identified with large impacts. For tens of millions of years.A 3. This sediment layer is enriched in the rare metal iridium and other elements that are relatively abundant in a meteorite but very rare in the crust of Earth. C or D) in the space provided. headship 8. But even without such specific documentation. inquired C. they disappeared.B 6. Scientists first identified this impact in 1980 from the worldwide layer of sediment deposited from the dust cloud that enveloped the planet after the impact. While there are a dozen or more mass extinctions in the geological record. however. those great creatures had flourished.C 2. If an impact is large enough.D 9. accounted D. The best-documented such impact took place 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous period of geological history. this component of meteorites is easily identified. imminent Your answers: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Keys: 1.

claim B. C. Although there is always some risk that a large impact could occur. digging out B. To provide evidence that an impact can be large enough to disturb the environment of the entire planet and cause an ecological disaster 3. covering up 6. destroying D. 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. They discovered a large crater in the Yucatán region of Mexico. They found a unique layer of sediment worldwide. 4. Geologists knew that there had been an impact before they knew where it had occurred. According to paragraph 4. B. the majority of all extinctions of species may be due to such impacts. Impacts by meteorites represent one mechanism that could cause global catastrophes and seriously influence the evolution of life all over the planet. In 1991 the United States Congress asked NASA to investigate the hazard posed today by large impacts on Earth. careful study shows that this risk is quite small. The standard criterion for the survival of a species is its success in competing with other species and adapting to slowly changing environments. subject to random violent events that were unsuspected a few decades ago. Such a perspective fundamentally changes our view of biological evolution. D. present 2. 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. how did scientists determine that a large meteorite had impacted Earth? A. 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. The group conducting the study concluded from a detailed analysis that impacts from meteorites can indeed be hazardous. assume D. They were alerted by archaeologists who had been excavating in the Yucatán region. 5. model C. The location of the impact site in Mexico was kept secret by geologists from 1980 to 1990. B. In paragraph 2. The word “pose” in the passage is closest in meaning to A. According to paragraph 3. To explain why paleontologists have always been intrigued by the mass extinction at the end of the Cretaceous D. C. D. B. .group. According to some estimates. why does the author include the information that dinosaurs had flourished for tens of millions of years and then suddenly disappeared? A. A large amount of dust blocked sunlight from Earth. Yet an equally important criterion is the ability of a species to survive random global ecological catastrophes due to impacts. They located a meteorite with a mass of over a trillion tons. Following each mass extinction. Which of the following can be inferred from paragraph 3 about the location of the meteorite impact in Mexico? A. It was a well-known fact that the impact had occurred in the Yucatán region. The Yucatán region was chosen by geologists as the most probable impact site because of its climate. The word “excavating” in the passage is closest in meaning to A. Earth is a target in a cosmic shooting gallery. Earth became cold and dark for several months. 1. extending C.
who conducted investigations about the current dangers posed by large meteorite impacts on Earth? A. nobody can predict when or where they will happen. Since most extinctions of species are due to major meteorite impacts. The problem.A 6. D.C 7." Incorrect choices change the meaning in important ways or leave out essential information. B. The most important factor for the survival of a species is its ability to compete and adapt to gradual changes in its environment. Large quantities of nitric acid were produced. According to the passage. B. Until recently. COMMUNICATING WITH THE FUTURE In the 1980s the United States Department of Energy was looking for suitable sites to bury radioactive waste material generated by its nuclear energy programs.C 4.C. easily identified 8. Since most violent events on Earth occur randomly. subject to random violent events that were unsuspected a few decades ago. 7. Paleontologists B. was that nuclear waste remains highly radioactive for thousands of years. the risk of a random violent impact from space has increased. The ability of a species to compete and adapt to a gradually changing environment is not the only ability that is essential for survival. A few decades ago. The United States Congress D. C.D Part 4: Read the following passage and choose the correct answers to the questions that follow.B 8. identified after careful study B. In the last few decades. The phrase “tentatively identified” in the passage is closest in meaning to A.D 2. D. New elements were formed in Earth’s crust. The factors that are most important for the survival of a species vary significantly from one species to another. The government was considering burying the dangerous wastes in deep underground chambers in remote desert areas. The commission entrusted with tackling the problem of waste disposal was aware that the dangers posed by radioactive . Paragraph 6 supports which of the following statements about the factors that are essential for the survival of a species? A. occasionally identified D. the ability to survive such impacts is the most important factor for the survival of a species.D 10. nobody realized that Earth is exposed to unpredictable violent impacts from space. Earth became the target of random violent events originating in outer space. A.B 9. Geologists C. C.B 5. however. identified without certainty C. 9. 10.C 3. D. NASA Your answers: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Keys: 1. Which of the sentences below best expresses the essential information in the following sentence? "Earth is a target in a cosmic shooting gallery.
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. Those outside the priesthood would be kept away by a combination of rituals and legends designed to warn off intruders.emissions must be communicated to our descendants of at least 10. 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. openings C. In the event of global catastrophe. A second defect is more difficult to dismiss. Even computers that might carry the message cannot be expected to endure long enough. Of course. there is no guarantee that any warning or sanction passed on for millennia would be obeyed. any message indicated to future reception and decipherment must be as universally understandable as possible. Sebeok suggested the only possible solution was the formation of a committee of guardians of knowledge. Sebeok’s group proposed a “relay system” in which information is passed on over relatively short periods of time. Critics point out that the atomic priesthood could use its secret knowledge to control those who are scientifically ignorant. Given this restriction. however. just three generations ahead. 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. So the task became one of finding a way to tell future societies about the risk posed by these deadly deposits. But the belief in constant technological advancement is based on our perceptions of advances made throughout history and prehistory. human society in the distant future may be well aware of the hazards of radiation. Besides. Its task would be to dedicate itself to maintaining and passing the knowledge of the whereabouts and dangers of the nuclear waste deposits. The word "chambers" in the passage is closest in meaning to ________ . 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. cavities D. Other media storage methods were considered and rejected for similar reasons. 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. We cannot be sure that society won’t have slipped backward into an age of barbarism due to any of several catastrophic events. 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. fissures . So. The message then to be renewed and redesigned if necessary for the following three generations and so on over the required time span. This proposal has been criticized because of the possibility of a break in continuity of the original message. Only the initiated atomic priesthood of experts would have the scientific knowledge to fully understand the danger. To counterbalance this possibility. The second law of thermodynamics shows that all material disintegrates over time.000 years hence. This is the problem of social exclusiveness brought about through possession of vital knowledge. 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. 1. Technological advances may one day provide the solutions to this dilemma. A. partitions B. nor that it could survive with its original meaning intact. In this way information could be relayed into the future and avoid the possibility of physical degradation. electricity supplies might not be available in 300 generations. Furthermore.
pressures B. worries D.the possible misuse of exclusive knowledge C. To support the belief that breaks in communication are inevitable over time C. 3. In paragraph 5. to show that knowledge can be sustained over millennia C. What problem faced the commission assigned to deal with the burial of nuclear waste? A. How to reduce the radioactive life of nuclear waste materials B. The word "scourges" in the passage is closest in meaning to ________ . How to choose burial sites so as to minimize dangers to people. The word "Its" in the passage refers to _________ . committee C. the second defect of the atomic priesthood proposal is that it could lead to _________ . the establishment of a scientifically ignorant society D. Because they would be an exclusive religious order D. why did the task force under Sebeok propose a relay system for passing on information? A. Because they would use rituals and legends to maintain their exclusiveness C. to contrast the potential life span of knowledge with that of material objects 6. A. According to the author. why is the proposed committee of guardians referred to as the "atomic priesthood"? A. Because they would be an exclusive group with knowledge about nuclear waste sites. the priesthood's criticism of points concerning vital knowledge . A. To compensate for the fact that meaning will not stable over long periods of time 9. to demonstrate the reason nuclear hazards must be communicated 4. To show that Sebeok 's ideas created more problems than they solved B. afflictions C. How to form a committee that could adequately express various nuclear risks C. B. A.
