B. Following each mass extinction. Earth became cold and dark for several months. The group conducting the study concluded from a
detailed analysis that impacts from meteorites can indeed be hazardous.
1. It was a well-known fact that the impact had occurred in the Yucatán region. Yet an equally important
criterion is the ability of a species to survive random global ecological catastrophes due to impacts. They discovered a large crater in the Yucatán region of Mexico. Although there is always some
risk that a large impact could occur. To support the claim that the mass extinction at the end of the Cretaceous is the best-documented of

D. According to some estimates. According to paragraph 4. subject to random violent events that were
unsuspected a few decades ago. 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. The standard criterion for the survival of a species is its success in
competing with other species and adapting to slowly changing environments. careful study shows that this risk is quite small.

Part 4: Read the following passage and choose the correct answers to the questions that follow. Until recently.

burying the dangerous wastes in deep underground chambers in remote desert areas. 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
2. The most important factor for the survival of a species is its ability to compete and adapt to gradual
changes in its environment. nobody can predict when or where they will

"Earth is a target in a cosmic shooting gallery.C
4. Paragraph 6 supports which of the following statements about the factors that are essential for
the survival of a species?
A. The United States Congress
however. So the task
became one of finding a way to tell future societies about the risk posed by these deadly deposits. any message indicated to future reception and
decipherment must be as universally understandable as possible.
A second defect is more difficult to dismiss. nor that it could survive with its original meaning intact. Sebeok’s group proposed a “relay system” in which information is passed on over relatively
short periods of time. there is no guarantee that any warning or sanction passed on for millennia
would be obeyed. 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. 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 suggested
the only possible solution was the formation of a committee of guardians of knowledge.
This proposal has been criticized because of the possibility of a break in continuity of the original
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. The message then to be renewed and redesigned if
necessary for the following three generations and so on over the required time span. Critics point out that the atomic priesthood could
use its secret knowledge to control those who are scientifically ignorant. Even
computers that might carry the message cannot be expected to endure long enough.
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. 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. Besides.emissions must be communicated to our descendants of at least 10. Those outside the
priesthood would be kept away by a combination of rituals and legends designed to warn off intruders. Its task would
be to dedicate itself to maintaining and passing the knowledge of the whereabouts and dangers of the
nuclear waste deposits.
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. electricity
supplies might not be available in 300 generations. cavities
D. The word "chambers" in the passage is closest in meaning to ________ . The second law of thermodynamics shows that all material disintegrates over time. fissures
. But the belief in constant
technological advancement is based on our perceptions of advances made throughout history and
C.000 years hence. To counterbalance this
possibility. In this way
information could be relayed into the future and avoid the possibility of physical degradation. just three generations ahead.
Technological advances may one day provide the solutions to this dilemma. partitions
B. Only the initiated atomic priesthood
of experts would have the scientific knowledge to fully understand the danger. We cannot be sure that society won’t have slipped backward into an age of barbarism due to
any of several catastrophic events. Furthermore.
A. Other media storage methods were considered and
rejected for similar reasons. This is the problem of social exclusiveness
brought about through possession of vital knowledge. 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 the event of global
catastrophe. Given this restriction. human society in the distant future may be well aware of the hazards of radiation.
the second defect of the atomic priesthood proposal is that it could lead to
_________ . the author explains the possible circumstances of future societies________ . In paragraph 4. Because they would be an exclusive religious order
B. the author mentions the second law of thermodynamics __________ . guardians
7. 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. To support the belief that breaks in communication are inevitable over time
C. to question the value of advances
C. to demonstrate the reason nuclear hazards must be communicated
A. To compensate for the fact that meaning will not stable over long periods of time
9. the nonmembers turning knowledge into dangerous mythical forms
B. to give the basic scientific reason behind the breakdown of material objects
D. to contrast the potential life span of knowledge with that of material objects
6. the establishment of a scientifically ignorant society
D. why did the task force under Sebeok propose a relay system for passing on
A. to show that knowledge can be sustained over millennia
C. The word "Its" in the passage refers to _________ . committee
A. Because they would develop mythical taboos surrounding their traditions
8. the priesthood's criticism of points concerning vital knowledge

D. to warn about the possible natural catastrophe
A. According to paragraph 7. annoyances
5. 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. In paragraph 2. How to choose burial sites so as to minimize dangers to people. Because they would use rituals and legends to maintain their exclusiveness
C. How to notify future generations of the risks of nuclear contamination
B.2. How to form a committee that could adequately express various nuclear risks
C.the possible misuse of exclusive knowledge
C. According to the author.
3. The word "scourges" in the passage is closest in meaning to ________ . To show that Sebeok 's ideas created more problems than they solved
B. Because they would be an exclusive group with knowledge about nuclear waste sites.
B. In paragraph 5.
