Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the
correct word or phrase that best fits each of the numbered blanks from 30 to 34
The earth’s surface is two-thirds water, yet most of this is undrinkable or unusable because it is
either seawater or ice. Of the 1% that is available as fresh water, most is used for farming or
industry. Fresh water pollution is the major problem because many rivers and streams are being
polluted with pesticides, industrial waste, and sewage. In poor and developing countries, the
addition of sewage to the sources of water leads to diseases, and even death. A United Nations’
report estimates that more than 78% of people drink from polluted water supplies. Although
people made efforts to control the supply of fresh water, they are also polluting it.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the
correct word or phrase that best fits each of the numbered blanks from 35 to 41.
Over the past decade, e-books have revolutionized the way people consume written information. It
will probably come as no surprise that the total global sales number continues to rise each
year. There are several reasons why readers are buying more e-books. For starters, reading a lengthy
e-book in front of your computer isn't the most comfortable thing to do. But since tablet sales have
exploded, readers can now relax and read their favourite e-books in bed or on the beach. Many e-
books are often sold at lower prices than traditional books. Since there is almost zero cost for
producing e-books, some authors are offering their novels at lower prices.
Another factor is convenience. In the past, keeping a large book collection meant setting aside a lot
of extra space in one's home. With e-books, it is now possible for readers to carry a portable
library, which contains thousands of books. To really understand the e-book market, it is important
to keep up with national trends. Recent data suggests that the e-book markets in the US and the UK
have matured.
In both of these countries, e-book sales account for roughly 20 percent of overall book sales.
Although that percentage continues to increase, it is going up at a slower rate than in the past. The
popularity of e-books has exploded in Russia. In one poll, 70 percent of Russians claim to have read
at least one e-book. However, publishers are not too pleased with this news because approximately
92 percent of e-books in Russia are acquired illegally. In France, consumers don't appear to be too
keen on e-books at this time. Although in 2012, e-book sales comprised about 3 percent of the
market, it is predicted that this number will increase at a very slow pace. Some French people
believe that reading e-books on small screens is uncomfortable. Others say that the French are a
cultural exception, as they like the feeling of holding a dusty old physical book. This demonstrates
that no matter how popular e-books get, it is unlikely that traditional books will disappear any time
soon.

Question 38:: Why are publishers unhappy about the popularity of e-books in Russia?
A. The quality of e-books is poor. B. Customers are not paying for them.
C. More people are returning to traditional books. D. Only a small percentage of people read e-
books.
Question 39: The word "they" in paragraph 5 refers to _____.
