the field of robotics. Japan and Korea have been pioneers in this field. They regularly compete to be

life-like, attractive female androids. A

Japanese research group led by Hiroshi Ishiguro created the world’s first female android, (2) is called Actroid, in 2003. The early model was limited so upgrades were made and the dramatic

entertainment model was released in 2006. Actroids are covered with silicone skin and have built-in

sensors making them (3)

, they can be programmed to speak in any language. The Korean android, EveR-2, released

in 2006, was designed by a team from Kitech. They claim that she is more life-like than Actroids, and


models are expected to have higher mobility and even be proficient in dancing. Research teams have also created male androids. One in particular is the Germinoid HI-I. Regardless of the competition, it’s clear that this technology will one day present us with the dilemma of determining human from machine. Question 21: A. creating B. forming C. improving D. shaping

Until two years ago, Clearing, Illinois was a tranquil suburb of Chicago. But residents grew alarmed when they noticed armed teenagers on the streets, giving gang signals and shouting at passing cars. Then came a series of burglaries and graffiti messages on storefronts. By the time local authorities realized they had a gang problem, it was too late. Last December, two 13-year-old girls were shot outside their school as they sat in a car with two members of a local gang, the Ridgeway Lords.

Nearly all 50 states have recently passed laws that allow youths aged 14-17 to be tried in court as adults. In about 25 states they have passed laws to punish parents for their children's behaviour. And in 146 of the nation's largest cities, they have imposed curfews to reduce juvenile violence. When you look at the spectacular rise of violent crime among young people recently, it's easy to understand the concern. Over the past decade, there has been a decline in adult murders in the US, while murder rates have surged for youths between 14-17. For young offenders who aren't sent to prison, the punishments vary: some are ordered to perform community service, others are placed in job training programs, still others sent to youth prisons. But the Republicans in Congress want to reverse a basic principle of juvenile justice: the separation of young criminals from hardened adult criminals in prison. The reasons are partly

financial - to reduce the cost of having separate prisons for young people - and partly psychological - to end what Republicans consider as society's overly protective attitude towards young criminals. Question 26: What is the message mainly about?

B. whose

C. that

D. which

C. Additionally

D. Otherwise

A. The roots of juvenile violence in Clearing

B. Movements to reduce youth crime in the U.S.A

C. How two 13-year-old girls got shot

D. Signals of youth crime

Question 27: According to the passage, what is NOT mentioned as a movement to alleviate youth crime?

A. Parents are forced to take responsibility for their children’s misbehaviours.

B. Curfews are put into practice.

C. Making youths aged 14-17 to be sentenced in court as grown-ups.

D. Imposing curfews on adults.

Question 28: The word “surged” in paragraph 2 mostly means

A. stayed unchanged

B. fallen

C. risen

D. fluctuated

Question 29: Which of the following is mentioned as a reason for that the Republicans of Congress want to separate young criminals from dangerous ones in prison?

P a g e






A. They want to lessen the financial burden of having separate rooms for young offenders.

B. They partly want to raise the defensive attitude of the society towards young criminals.

C. They want to prevent people from obsessing with protective attitude towards armed teenagers.

D. They partly want to improve psychological health of young offenders.

Question 30: The word “they” in paragraph 1 refers to

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. Staggering tasks confronted the people of the United States, North and South, when the Civil War ended. About a million and a half soldiers from both sides had to be demobilized, readjusted to civilian life, and reabsorbed by the devastated economy. Civil government also had to be put back on a peacetime basis and interference from the military had to be stopped. The desperate plight of the South has eclipsed the fact that reconstruction had to be undertaken also in the North, though less spectacularly. Industries had to adjust to peacetime conditions: factories had to be retooled for civilian needs. Financial problems loomed large in both the North and the South. The national debt had shot up from a modest $65 million in 1861, the year the war started, to nearly $3 billion in 1865, the year the war ended. This was a colossal sum for those days but one that a prudent government could pay. At the same time, war taxes had to be reduced to less burdensome levels. Physical devastation caused by invading armies, chiefly in the South and border states, had to

be repaired. This herculean task was ultimately completed, but with discouraging slowness. Other important questions needed answering. What would be the future of the four million black people who were freed from slavery? On what basis were the Southern states to be brought back into the Union? What of the Southern leaders, all of whom were liable to charges of treason? One of these leaders, Jefferson Davis, president of the Southern Confederacy, was the subject of an insulting popular Northern song, “Hang Jeff Davis from a Sour Apple Tree”, and even children sang it. Davis was temporarily chained in his prison cell during the early days of his two-year imprisonment. But he and other Southern leaders were finally released, partly because it was unlikely that a jury from Virginia, a Southern Confederate state, would convict them. All the leaders were finally pardoned by

President Johnson in 1868 in an effort to help reconstruction efforts proceed with as little bitterness as possible. Question 31: What does the passage mainly discuss?
