Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the
correct answer to each of the questions from 13 to 19.
People appear to be born to compute. The numerical skills of children develop so early and so
inexorably that it is easy to imagine an internal clock of mathematical maturity guiding then growth. Not
long after learning to walk and talk, they can set the table with impressive accuracy - one plate, one knife,
one spoon, one fork, for each of the five chairs. Soon they are capable of nothing that they have placed
five knives, spoons, and forks on the table and, a bit later, that this amounts to fifteen pieces of
silverware. Having thus mastered addition, they move on to subtraction. It seems almost reasonable to
expect that if a child were secluded on a desert island at birth and retrieved seven years later, he or she
could enter a second-grade mathematics class without any serious problems of intellectual adjustment.
Of course, the truth is not so simple. This century, the work of cognitive psychologists has
illuminated the subtle forms of daily learning on which intellectual progress depends. Children were
observed as they slowly grasped - or, as the case might be, bumped into - concepts that adults take for
granted, as they refused, for instance, to concede that quantity is unchanged as water pours from a short
stout glass into a tall thin one. Psychologists have since demonstrated that young children, asked to count

total. Such studies have suggested that the rudiments of mathematics are mastered gradually, and with

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the
correct answer to each of the questions from 31 to 38.
We are descendants of the ice age. Periods of glaciation have spanned the whole of human
existence for the past 2 million years. The rapid melting of the continental glaciers at the end of the last
ice age spurred one of the most dramatic climate changes in the history of the planet. During this inter-
glacial time, people were caught up in a cataclysm of human accomplishment, including the development
of agriculture and animal husbandry. Over the past few thousand years, the Earth's climate has been
extraordinarily beneficial, and humans have prospered exceedingly well under a benign atmosphere.
Ice ages have dramatically affected life on Earth almost from the very beginning. It is even possible
that life itself significantly changed the climate. All living organisms pull carbon dioxide out of the
atmosphere and eventually store it in sedimentary rocks within the Earth's crust. If too much carbon
dioxide is lost, too much heat escapes out into the atmosphere. This can cause the Earth to cool enough
for glacial ice to spread across the land.
In general the reduction of the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has been equalized by the
input of carbon dioxide from such events as volcanic eruptions. Man, however, is upsetting the equation
by burning fossil fuels and destroying tropical rain forests, both of which release stored carbon dioxide.
This energizes the greenhouse effect and causes the Earth to warm. If the warming is significant enough,
the polar ice caps eventually melt.
The polar ice caps drive the atmospheric and oceanic circulation systems. Should the ice caps melt,
warm tropical waters could circle the globe and make this a very warm, inhospitable planet.
Over the past century, the global sea level has apparently risen upwards of 6 inches, mainly because
of the melting of glacial ice. If present warming trends continue, the seas could rise as much as 6 feet by
the next century. This could flood coastal cities and fertile river deltas, where half the human population lives.
Delicate wetlands, where many marine species breed, also would be reclaimed by the sea. In addition, more
frequent and severe storms would batter coastal areas, adding to the disaster of the higher seas.
The continued melting of the great ice sheets in polar regions could cause massive amounts of ice
to crash into the ocean. This would further raise the sea level and release more ice, which could more than
double the area of sea ice and increase correspondingly the amount of sunlight reflected back into space.
The cycle would then be complete as this could cause global temperatures to drop enough to initiate
another ice age.
Question 31. What is the main topic of the passage?
A. The coming of another ice age.
B. The climate of the Earth over the years.
C. Man's effect on the carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere.
D. The possibility that the popular ice caps will melt.

climate?
A. An increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide results in the warming of the climate.
B. The greenhouse effect, which leads to the warming of the climate, is result of too much carbon stored
in the Earth's crust.
C. Rain causes carbon dioxide to be washed out of the atmosphere and into the ocean.
D. Carbon dioxide, which is trapped in glacial ice, is released when warm temperatures cause the ice
melt.
