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. 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. A. those environmental disasters could have been responsible for the mass extinction. While there are a dozen or more mass extinctions in the geological record.D 4. may create opportunities for another . If an impact is large enough. The best-documented such impact took place 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous period of geological history. it can disturb the environment of the entire Earth and cause an ecological catastrophe. Such a quantity of material would have blocked the sunlight completely from reaching the surface. the Cretaceous mass extinction has always intrigued paleontologists because it marks the end of the age of the dinosaurs. starting widespread fires that must have consumed most terrestrial forest sand grassland. Several other mass extinctions in the geological record have been tentatively identified with large impacts. By 1990 geologists had located the impact site itself in the Yucatán region of Mexico. as can be determined by measuring the thickness of the sediment layer formed when this dust settled to the surface. The explosion lifted about 100 trillion tons of dust into the atmosphere.

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

Large quantities of nitric acid were produced.D 2. Since most violent events on Earth occur randomly. nobody realized that Earth is exposed to unpredictable violent impacts from space.A 6. B.D Part 4: Read the following passage and choose the correct answers to the questions that follow. D. C. B. D. In the last few decades. easily identified 8. identified after careful study B. The most important factor for the survival of a species is its ability to compete and adapt to gradual changes in its environment. the risk of a random violent impact from space has increased. 7. 9. Earth became the target of random violent events originating in outer space. occasionally identified D.B 9. 10. Paleontologists B. The factors that are most important for the survival of a species vary significantly from one species to another.C 3. New elements were formed in Earth’s crust. the ability to survive such impacts is the most important factor for the survival of a species.B 5.C. The phrase “tentatively identified” in the passage is closest in meaning to A. however. 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. subject to random violent events that were unsuspected a few decades ago. nobody can predict when or where they will happen. was that nuclear waste remains highly radioactive for thousands of years. The ability of a species to compete and adapt to a gradually changing environment is not the only ability that is essential for survival." Incorrect choices change the meaning in important ways or leave out essential information.C 7.D 10. D. Paragraph 6 supports which of the following statements about the factors that are essential for the survival of a species? A. The problem. who conducted investigations about the current dangers posed by large meteorite impacts on Earth? A. According to the passage. Since most extinctions of species are due to major meteorite impacts. The United States Congress D. The government was considering burying the dangerous wastes in deep underground chambers in remote desert areas.B 8. Which of the sentences below best expresses the essential information in the following sentence? "Earth is a target in a cosmic shooting gallery. A. Until recently. A few decades ago. identified without certainty C. C.C 4. NASA Your answers: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Keys: 1.

nor that it could survive with its original meaning intact. The second law of thermodynamics shows that all material disintegrates over time. electricity supplies might not be available in 300 generations. Critics point out that the atomic priesthood could use its secret knowledge to control those who are scientifically ignorant. In this way information could be relayed into the future and avoid the possibility of physical degradation. just three generations ahead. there is no guarantee that any warning or sanction passed on for millennia would be obeyed. 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. Only the initiated atomic priesthood of experts would have the scientific knowledge to fully understand the danger. 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. So. however. 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. 1. So the task became one of finding a way to tell future societies about the risk posed by these deadly deposits. Sebeok’s group proposed a “relay system” in which information is passed on over relatively short periods of time. 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. Other media storage methods were considered and rejected for similar reasons.000 years hence. A second defect is more difficult to dismiss. In the event of global catastrophe. We cannot be sure that society won’t have slipped backward into an age of barbarism due to any of several catastrophic events. Its task would be to dedicate itself to maintaining and passing the knowledge of the whereabouts and dangers of the nuclear waste deposits. partitions B. cavities D. This proposal has been criticized because of the possibility of a break in continuity of the original message. human society in the distant future may be well aware of the hazards of radiation. any message indicated to future reception and decipherment must be as universally understandable as possible. Technological advances may one day provide the solutions to this dilemma. fissures . Of course. This is the problem of social exclusiveness brought about through possession of vital knowledge.emissions must be communicated to our descendants of at least 10. But the belief in constant technological advancement is based on our perceptions of advances made throughout history and prehistory. A. Sebeok suggested the only possible solution was the formation of a committee of guardians of knowledge. Those outside the priesthood would be kept away by a combination of rituals and legends designed to warn off intruders. Even computers that might carry the message cannot be expected to endure long enough. Given this restriction. 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. openings C. Furthermore. The word "chambers" in the passage is closest in meaning to ________ . Besides. To counterbalance this possibility. The message then to be renewed and redesigned if necessary for the following three generations and so on over the required time span. 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. 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.

What problem faced the commission assigned to deal with the burial of nuclear waste? A. How to choose burial sites so as to minimize dangers to people.the possible misuse of exclusive knowledge C. B.
