Reading comprehension Read the following passage and choose the best answers. A Japanese construction company plans to create a huge independent city-state, akin to the legendary Atlantis in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The city. dubbed "marin-nation", would have about one million inhabitants, two airports, and possibly even a space port. Marin-nation, if built, would be a separate country but could serve as a home for international organizations such as the United Nations and the World Bank. Aside from the many political social problems that would have to be solved, the engineering task envisaged is monumental. The initial stage requires the building of a circular dam 18 miles in diameter attached to the bed in relatively shallow place in international waters. Then, several hundred powerful pumps, operating for more than a year, would suck out the sea water from within the dam. When empty and dry, the area would have a city constructed on it. The actual land would be about 300 feet below sea level. According to designers, the hardest task from engineering point of view would be to ensure that the dam is leak proof and earthquake proof. If all goes well, it is hoped that marin-nation could be ready for habitation at the end of the second decade of the twenty-first century. Whether anyone would want to live in such an isolated and artificial community, however, it will remain an open question until that time. 1. To what does the underlined phrase "the city" refer? A. A Japanese construction company B. Atlantis C. The United Nations D. A future city 2. What kind of city will marin-nation be? A. underground B. underwater C. marine D. Legendary 3. The tone of the passage is . A. sarcastic B. humorous C. judgmental D. informative 4. The problem of Marin-nation focused on here is mainly . A. human B. engineering C. political D. social 5. By referring to Atlantis in the passage, the author is saying that A. marin-nation will never be built. B. marin-nation is a city in the ocean. C. even if built, marin-nation will fail. D. marin-nation is only a dream. 10 DETHI NAM 1999 PART ONE: PHONOLOGY A. Pick out the word whose sound of the bold parts is pronounced differently from that of the others in each group. 1.
