Presumably. B. While there are a dozen or more mass extinctions in the geological record. heading C. Twice in the twentieth century. Several other mass extinctions in the geological record have been tentatively identified with large impacts. including the death of the dinosaurs. By 1990 geologists had located the impact site itself in the Yucatán region of Mexico. the Cretaceous mass extinction has always intrigued paleontologists because it marks the end of the age of the dinosaurs. The crater. conceivable C. The explosion is also calculated to have produced vast quantities of nitric acid and melted rock that sprayed out overmuch of Earth. Meteorite Impact and Dinosaur Extinction There is increasing evidence that the impacts of meteorites have had important effects on Earth. inquired C.A 10. If an impact is large enough. This impact released an enormous amount of energy. Such impacts continue to pose a natural hazard to life on Earth.C Part 3:Read the following passage and choose the best answer to each of the questions.

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

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

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

The word "Its" in the passage refers to _________ . to highlight humankind's inability to resolve problems D. 3. Because they would be an exclusive religious order D. To compensate for the fact that meaning will not stable over long periods of time 9. committee C. to show that knowledge can be sustained over millennia C. In paragraph 5. Because they would be an exclusive group with knowledge about nuclear waste sites. Because they would use rituals and legends to maintain their exclusiveness C.
