READINGPart 1:Read the passage and choose the correct answer for the following questions:All at once Hazel was coming in through the French windows, pulling off gardening gloves, and Bill wasentering through the door, both at once. So I only had time to take one quick look at her before I turned to facehim. All very confusing. What that first glimpse showed me was that time had thickened her figure but didn’tseem to have made much difference to her face. It still had good skin and youthful outlines. She was holding abunch of roses – must have been cutting them in the garden while waiting for me. The gardening gloves lent adelightfully informal touch. It was quite an entrance, though Bill spoilt it a bit by making his at the same time.Bill seemed longer and thinner. His tightly massed hair had a tinge of grey. Apart from that, twenty yearshad done nothing to him, except deepen the lines of thoughtfulness that had already, when I knew him, begunto spread across his face. Or was that all? I looked at him again, more carefully, as he looked away from me atHazel. Weren’t his eyes different somehow? More inward looking than ever? Gazing in not merely at histhoughts, but at something else, something he was keeping hidden or perhaps protecting.Then we were chattering and taking glasses in our hands, and I came back to earth. For the first tenminutes we were all so defensive, so carefully probing, that nobody learnt anything. Bill had forgotten mealtogether, that much was clear. He was engaged in getting to know me from scratch, very cautiously so as notto hit a wrong note, with the object of getting me to contribute a big subscription to his African project. I kepttrying to absorb details about Hazel, but Bill was talking earnestly about African education, and the strain ofappearing to concentrate while actually thinking about his wife proved so great that I decided it would bePage 2easier just to concentrate. So I did. I let him hammer away for about ten more minutes, and then the daughter,who seemed to be acting as parlourmaid, showed in another visitor. Evidently we were to be four at lunch.1. What effect had time had on Hazel and Bill?A. They had both lost weight.B. They were more withdrawn.C. They hadn’t changed at all.D. They had changed in subtle ways.2. When they all started talking, the writer A. relaxed at last.B. stopped dreaming.C. spoke most to Hazel.D. began to remember things.3. The writer found the first part of their conversation A. sentimental.B. irritating.C. uninformative.D. trivial.4. Why did Bill speak seriously?A. He wanted some money from the writer. B. He did not remember the writer.C. His wife was present.D. He was talking about the past.5. In the end the writer found Bill’s conversation A. monotonousB. convincingC. thoughtprovokingD. instructivePart 2: Read the following passage and choose the most suitable word for each space. According to a magazine article I read recently, we (1) ......... live in an age of increasing leisure. Notonly are more and more people reaching (2) ......... age with their taste for enjoyment and even adventurerelatively (3) ......... but the working week is becoming shorter and the opportunities for (4) ......... arebecoming greater and greater all the time. Not to mention the fact that people (5) .........to spend less timetravelling to work or may even be working from home. What I cant understand, however, is who these peopleare.

A States's rights versus federal rights B The participation of state governments in railroad, canal, and turnpike construction C The roles of state and federal governments in the economy of the nineteenthcentury D Regulatory activity by state governments The word “effect” in bold in paragraph is closest in meaning to A value B argument C influence D restraint All of the following are mentioned in the passage as areas that involved statevernments in the nineteenth century EXCEPT _ A mining B banking C manufacturing D higher education The word “distinct” in bold in paragraph is closest in meaning to _ A separate B innovative C alarming D provocative It can be inferred from the first paragraph that in the nineteenth century canals and railroads were _ A built with money that came from the federal government B much more expensive to build than they had been previously C built predominantly in the western part of the country D sometimes built in part by state companies The regulatory activities of state governments included all of the following EXCEPT _ A licensing of retail merchants B inspecting materials used in turnpike maintenance C imposing limits on price-fixing D control of lumber The word “setting” in bold in paragraph is closest in meaning to _ A discussing B analyzing C establishing D avoiding The word “ends” in bold in paragraph is closest in meaning to A benefits B decisions C services D goals According to the passage, which of the following is true of the Homestead Act of 1862? A It made it increasingly possible for settlers to obtain land in the West B It was a law first passed by state governments in the West C It increased the money supply in the West D It established tariffs in a number of regions 10 Which of the following activities was the responsibility of the federal government in the nineteenth century?

A The first guyot was discovered there B No guyots have ever been found there C There are more guyots there than in any other ocean D It is impossible that guyots were ever formed there 56 The author states that offshore canyons and guyots have which of the following characteristics in common? A Both are found on the ocean floor near continental shelves B Both present oceanographers with a mystery C Both were formed by volcanic activity D Both were, at one time, above the surface of the sea 57 According to the passage, most guyots are found at a depth of A less than 600 feet B between 600 and 3,200 feet C between 3,200 and 6,500 feet D more than 8,200 feet 51 Which of the following is closest in meaning to the word “rubble”?

A Sinter Klaas B Saint Nicholas C A German D Dutch settlers 62 Santa Claus was traditionally described as a A tall man who could walk through the air B fat, jolly, old man C religious figure D fat man riding a white horse 63 Santa Claus in North America was depicted as A a man with the strict disciplinarian character of Black Peter ENGLISH PRACTICE PART A PRONUNCIATION I Choose the word whose stress pattern is different from the rest A literature B concentrate C comfortable D rhinoceros A produce B protect C project D purchase A policeman B candidate C fantastic D position A counterpart B outstanding C applicant D wilderness A mosquito B document C literature D business A magazine B preference C cigarette D engineer A regardless B coincide C specific D inventive A promise B tonight C furnish D reason A electronic B proficiency C petroleum D equivalent 10 A substantial B dramatic C terrorist D demolish PART B LEXICO - GRAMMAR I Complete each of the following sentences with the correct answer (A, B, C or D) Identify your answer by writing the corresponding letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet You need a passport to cross the _between Mexico and the United States A edge B line C border D rim When you _ your destination, your tour guide will meet you at the airport A arrive B get C reach D achieve Rachel is mad the Eurovision A about B for C from D against We are pleased to announce that Keith Danish replace Susan Williams as Operations Manager from 24th September A does B is about to C is to D is due Make sure you mix the ingredients well, you might get lumps in your cake A unless B otherwise C provided D supposing If you hadn’t taken the money, you _ in prison now A wouldn’t be B wouldn’t have been C haven’t been D hadn’t been The bank is reported in the local newspaper _ in broad daylight yesterday A to be robbed B robbed C to have been robbed D having been robbed Fiona can’t _ about the meeting I reminded her this morning!

A pollen B mold C flowers D injections 10 A paragraph following this passage would most probably discuss A how the nervous system alerts patients B how the immune system reacts to allergens C what other diseases can be relieved by vaccines D What flowers are harmless to hay fever patients II Complete the following passage by choosing the correct option (A, B, C or D) to fill in blanks Write your answers on your answer sheet Down from the mountains On the fourth day, We started our descent from the mountain range We walked down the narrow track in single (1) , taking care not to slip on the wet surface We followed the river down a steep-sided (2) _, stopping just once along the way to take a shower under a beautiful (3) Soon the (4) _ began to change, with more and more trees and (5) vegetation Several (6) _ of birds flew overhead, and we saw an amazing multi-coloured snake lying under a small (7) as we walked past By the afternoon, the countryside was changing again as we approached the coast Here, there were (8) _ where farmers grew a variety of crops such as wheat, and we saw a (9) _ of cows near a farmhouse Then we climbed up and down some tall, grass-covered (10) _ , and at last we had arrived at the sea A line B file C track D queue A channel B lagoon C canal D valley A pond B waterfall C current D bath A scenery B sights C settings D.scenes A dense B tight C intense D close A crews B bunches C flocks D crowds A wood B hedge C bush D forest A deserts B fields C shores D jungles A team B gang C pack D herd 10 A dunes B beaches C plains D fences II Read the text below and think of the word which best fits each space Use only ONE word in each space Write your answers on your answer sheet Travel Insurance When going on holiday, it is always a good idea to take out travel insurance This is just in case something goes (1) _ along the way You could lose your luggage, you could be robbed, or even become ill and need expensive medical treatment For millions of holiday makers, travel insurance is just a precaution (2) _ will help them have an enjoyable and worry-free holiday But for (3) _, travel insurance is a way of earning money (4) making false claims against insurance companies For (5) some people pretend that they have had expensive equipment stolen which in (6) never even existed, and then claim large sums in compensation Such claims cost insurance company a total (7) _ £ 50 million per year But the cheats’ luck is about to run (8) (9) to a new computer system, companies will be able to tell at a glance (10) _ someone has made a claim within the last three years Honest travelers will no longer have to pay through the nose for other people’s dishonesty PART D WRITING I Complete the second sentence so that it has the similar meaning to the first sentence Write your answers on your answer sheet Is there any chance of his coming to the party?
