READING

For questions 61-70, read the two passages and choose the best answer (A, B, C, or D) to each
question thatfollows them. Mark your answer choice on the answer sheet.
Passage 1
The brain of the average human weighs approximately 14 kilograms and consists of three main parts:
the cerebrum, the cerebellum, and the brain stem. The cerebrum is by far the largest of the three parts,
taking up 85% of the brain by weight. The outside layer of the cerebrum, the cerebral cortex, is a
grooved and bumpy surface covering the nerve cells beneath. The various sections of the cerebrum are
the sensory cortex, which is responsible for receiving and decoding sensory messages from throughout
the body; the motor cortex, which sends action instructions to the skeletal muscles; and the association
cortex, which receives, monitors, and processes information. It is in the association cortex that the
processes that allow humans to think take place. The cerebellum, located below the cerebrum in the
back part of the skull, is the section of the brain that controls balance and posture. The brain stem
connects the cerebrum and the spinal cord. It controls various body processes such as breathing and
heartbeat.
61. What is the author's main purpose?
A. To explain how the brain processes information
/@Todescribethe
functions of the parts of the brain
C. To demonstrate the physical composition of the brain

Passage 2
Though Paul Gauguin, himself, recognized both the "sensitive" and the "savage" as two opposing sides
of his character, in his career as an artist he thought of himself as "the savage". He tended to disregard
convention and abandon social responsibilities. He felt that only by renouncing the ordinary could he
be the artist he wanted to be. He justified his quarreling with friends, his leaving his wife and children,
and his promiscuity because he believed it to be the only way his art could be liberated. Inhis attitude
can be found seeds of art in the coming century: the art of the primitive, of symbol, and of imagination.
He wanted to escape from merely observing naturalism to using abstract color and form as conveyors
of feeling. He wanted to free painting from all restrictions. He began to carry his art deep into the
realm of myth and dream with the idea that mystery and enigma were essential to art.
66. Which of the following is the main topic of this passage?
A. the complex connection between attitude and art
B. myth and reality in Gauguin's paintings
@yPaul Gauguin's life
