For question 1-5, choose the best answer (A, B, C, or D). Write youranswers in the corresponding numbered boxes.Day after day we hear about how anthropogenic development is causing global warming. According to anincreasingly vocal minority, however, we should be asking ourselves how much of this is media hype and howmuch is based on real evidence. It seems, as so often is the case, that it depends on which expert you listen to, orwhich statistics you study.Yes, it is true that there is a mass of evidence to indicate that the world is getting warmer, with one of the world'sleading weather predictors stating that air temperatures have shown an increase of just under half a degree Celsiussince the beginning of the twentieth century. And while this may not sound like anything worth losing sleep overthe international press would have us believe that the consequences could be devastating. Other experts, however,are of the opinion that what we are seeing is just part of a natural upward and downward swing that has alwaysbeen part of the cycle of global weather. An analysis of the views of major meteorologists in the United Statesshowed that less than 20% of them believed that any change in temperature over the last hundred years was ourown fault-the rest attributed it to natural cyclical changes.6 There is, of course, no denying that we are still at a very early stage in understanding weather. The effects of suchvariables as rainfall, cloud formation, the seas and oceans, gases such as methane and ozone, or even solar energyare still not really understood, and therefore the predictions that we make using them cannot always be relied on.Dr. James Hansen, in 1988, was predicting that the likely effects of global warming would be a raising of worldtemperature which would have disastrous consequences for mankind: "a strong cause and effect relationshipbetween the current climate and human alteration of the atmosphere". He has now gone on record as stating thatusing artificial models of climate as a way of predicting change is all but impossible. In fact, he now believes that,rather than getting hotter, our planet is getting greener as a result of the carbon dioxide increase, with the prospectof increasing vegetation in areas which in recent history have been frozen wastelands.In fact. there is some evidence to suggest that as our computer-based weather models have become moresophisticated, the predicted rises in temperature have been cut back. In addition, if we look at the much reportedrise in global temperature over the last century, a close analysis reveals that the lion's share of that increase, almostthree quarters in total, occurred before man began to 'poison' his world with industrial processes and theaccompanying greenhouse gas emissions in the second half of the twentieth century.So should we pay any attention to those stories that scream out at us from billboards and television news headlines,claiming that man, with his inexhaustible dependence on oil-based machinery and ever more sophisticated forms oftransport is creating a nightmare level of 'greenhouse gas emissions, poisoning his environment and ripping openthe ozone layer? Doubters point to scientific evidence. which can prove that, of all the greenhouse gases, only twopercent come from man-made sources, the rest resulting from natural emissions.Who, then, to believe: the environmentalist exhorting us to leave the car at home, to buy re-usable productspackaged in recycled paper and to plant trees in our back yard? Or the sceptics, including, of course, a lot of bigbusinesses who have most to lose, when they tell us that we are making a mountain out of a molehill? And my ownopinion? The jury's still out as far as I am concerned!1.

More than 80% of the top meteorologists in the United States are of the opinion that _________A. global warming should make us lose sleep.B. global warming is not the result of natural cyclical changes but man-made.C. the consequences of global warming will be devastating.D. global warming is not man-made, but the result of natural cyclical changes.4. Our understanding of weather __________A. leads to reliable predictions.B. is variable.C. cannot be denied.D. is not very developed yet.5. Currently, Dr James Hansen's beliefs include the fact that _________A. it is nearly impossible to predict weather change using artificial models.B. the consequences of global warming would be disastrous for mankind.C. there is a significant link between the climate now, and man's changing of the atmosphere.D.

Most American marriages, particular first marriagesuniting young people, are the result of mutual attraction and affection rather withpractical considerations.In the United States, parents do not arrange marriages for their children. Teenagersbegin date in high school and usually find mates through their own academic andsocial contacts. Though young people feel free to choose their friends from differentgroups, almost choose a mate of similar background. This is due partly to parentalguidance. Parents cannot select spouses for their children, but they can usuallyinfluence choices by voicing disapproval for someone they consider suitable.However, marriages of members of different groups (interclass, interfaith, andinterracial marriages) are increasing, probably because of the greater mobile oftoday's youth and the fact that they are restricted by fewer prejudices as their parents.Many young people leave their hometowns to attend college, serve in armed forces,or pursue a career in a bigger city.

These waves are also referred to bythe general public as tidal waves, although they have relatively little to do with tides. Scientists oftenrefer to them as seismic sea waves, far more appropriate in that they do result from undersea seismicactivity.Tsunamis are caused when the sea bottom suddenly moves, during an underwaterearthquake or volcano, for example, and the water above the moving earth is suddenly displaced. Thissudden shift of water sets off a series of waves. These waves can travel great distances at speeds closeto 700 kilometers per hour. In the open ocean, tsunamis have little noticeable amplitude, often nomore than one or two meters. It is when they hit the shallow water the coast that they increase inheight, possibly up to 40 meters.Tsunamis often occur in the Pacific because the Pacific is an area of heavy seismic activity.Two areas of the Pacific well accustomed to the threat of tsunamis arc Japan and Hawaii. Because theseismic activity that causes tsunamis in Japan often occurs on the ocean bottom quite close to theislands, the tsunamis that hit Japan often comes with little warning and can therefore prove disastrous.Most of the tsunamis that hit the Hawaiian Islands, however, originate thousands of miles away nearthe coast of Alaska, so these tsunamis have a much greater distance to travel and the inhabitants ofHawaii generally have time for warning of their imminent arrival.Tsunamis are certainly not limited to Japan and Hawaii. In 1755, Europe experienced a calamitoustsunami, when movement along the fault lines near the Azores caused a massive tsunami to sweep onto thePortuguese coast and flood the heavily populated area around Lisbon. The greatest tsunami on record occurredon the other side of the world in 1883 when the Krakatoa volcano underwent a massive explosion, sendingwaves more than 30 meters high onto nearby Indonesian islands; the tsunami from this volcano actuallytraveled around the world and was witnessed as far away as the English Channel.Câu 71: The paragraph preceding this passage most probably discussesA. tidal wavesB. tidesD. storm surgesC. underwater earthquakesCâu 72: According to the passage, all of the following are true about tidal waves EXCEPT thatA. they refer to the same phenomenon as seismic sea wavesB. they are caused by sudden changes in high and low tidesC. this terminology is not used by the scientific communityD. they are the same as tsunamisCâu 73: The world "displaced" in the second paragraph is closest in meaning to_______ .Ngày thi 9/3/2013Trang 5/6 - Mã đề thi 493 B. movedC. not pleasedD. locatedA. filteredCâu 74: It can be inferred from the passage that tsunamis _______ .A. cause severe damage in the middle of the oceanB. are often identified by ships on the oceanC. generally reach heights greater than 40 metersD. are far more dangerous on the coast than in the open oceanCâu 75: As used in the passage, water that is "shallow" isn't _______ .A. deepB. tidalC. coastalD. clearCâu 76: A main difference between tsunamis in Japan and in Hawaii is that tsunamis in Japan are morelikely to________ .A. originate in AlaskaB. arrive without warningC. be less of a problemD. come from greater distancesCâu 77: The possessive "their" in the third paragraph refers to _______ .A. the Hawaiian islandsB. the inhabitants of HawaiiC. these tsunamisD. thousands of milesCâu 78: A "calamitous" tsunami in the last paragraph is one that is .................A. extremely calmB. at faultC. disastrousD. expectedCâu 79: From the expression "on record" in the last paragraph, it can be inferred the tsunami thataccompanied the Krakatoa volcano ________ .A. might not be the greatest tsunami everC. was not as strong as the tsunami in LisbonB. occurred before efficient records were kepD. was filmed as it was happeningCâu 80: The passage suggests that - the tsunami resulting from the Kr- volcano ________ .A. was far more destructive close to the source than far awayB. resulted in little damageC. caused volcanic explosions in the English ChannelD. was unobserved outside of the Indonesian islands----------- HẾT ----------Ngày thi 9/3/2013Trang 6/6 - Mã đề thi 493 SỞ GD-ĐT ĐỒNG THÁPTRƯỜNG THPT TRƯỜNG XUÂNKỲ THI CHỌN HỌC SINH GIỎI CẤP TRƯỜNGMôn thi: Tiếng Anh 11Thời gian thi: 120 phútLưu ý:Đề thi gồm 06 trang.

(10 points)Our growing need for food, goods and energy has had many harmful effects on the environment.Gases produced by cars, power stations and factories cause acid rain, which kills trees and damagesbuildings. By using more environmentally-friendly forms of transport, we help reduce this form ofpollution.A layer of carbon dioxide and other gases traps heat and keeps the earth at the right temperature. This iscalled the green-house effect. By burning fossil fuels we are producing too much carbon dioxide, which iscausing temperatures to rise gradually. This global warming could lead to dramatic changes in climate.A layer of gas called ozone protects the earth from harmful ultra-violet radiation. Certain chemicals usedin industry, such as CFCs have caused a hole to develop in the ozone layer. The increased levels of ultraviolet radiation damage plants and sea life, and increase the risk of skin cancer.Most of the energy we use to heat and light building, run machines etc. is made by burning fossil fuels.This energy source will eventually get exhausted, so we need to use more alternative sources of energysuch as wind and solar power that are renewable and do not pollute the air. We also avoid wasting energybut using less electricity and water and insulating our new houses.We are destroying our forests, which produce oxygen and provide habitats – natural environments – foranimals and birds. Deforestation also allows rain to wash away the soil, making land useless for growing-5- things. We pollute water by dumping waste from factories and houses, and by accidentally spillingchemicals and oil. Chemical fertilizers damage rivers and lakes by causing a layer of tiny plants, calledalgal to cover the surface of water. Organic farming does not harm water supply.Burying rubbish in landfills cam make chemicals leak through the ground into rivers, and it uses a lot ofland. Burning rubbish adds to global warning. By sorting out rubbish for recycling we can cut down onwaste.1. The passage is mainly about ____________.A. Man and NatureB. how we should use the existing sources of energyC. environmental problemsD. rubbish recycling2. Acid rain is caused by ____________.A. gases emitted from cars and factoriesB. the burning of rubbishC. the burying of rubbishD. ultra-violet radiation3. Skin cancer may be caused by ____________.A. the global warmingB. acid rainC. air pollutionD. ultra-violet radiation4. We should use more alternative sources of energy such as wind and solar power because they____________.A. are cheaperB. will not be used up and do not pollute the airC. are easier to getD. can be recycled5. If we destroy forest ____________.A. animals and birds will have no place to liveB. rivers and lakes will be pollutedC. wildlife and farming will be affectedD. our wood supply will decrease.III/.

Write A, B, C or D toindicate your answers on the answer sheet. ( 10 points)Every drop of water in the ocean, even in the deepest parts, responds to the forces that create thetides. No other force that affects the sea is so strong. Compared with the tides, the waves created by thewind are surface movements felt no more than a hundred fathoms below the surface. The currents alsoseldom involve more than the upper several hundred fathoms despite their impressive sweep.The tides are a response of the waters of the ocean to the pull of the Moon and the more distantSun. In theory, there is a gravitational attraction between the water and even the outermost star of theuniverse. In reality, however, the pull of remote stars is so slight as to be obliterated by the control of theMoon and, to a lesser extent, the Sun. Just as the Moon rises later each day by fifty minutes, on theaverage, so, in most places, the time of high tide is correspondingly later each day. And as the Moonwaxes and wanes in its monthly cycle, so the height of the tide varies. The tidal movements are strongestwhen the Moon is a sliver in the sky, and when it is full. These are the highest flood tides and the lowestebb tides of the lunar month and are called the spring tides. At these times the Sun, Moon, and Earth arenearly in line and the pull of the two heavenly bodies is added together to bring the water high on thebeaches, to send its surf upward against the sea cliffs, and to draw a high tide into the harbors. Twice eachmonth, at the quarters of the Moon, when the Sun, Moon and Earth lie at the apexes of a triangularconfiguration and the pull of the Sun and Moon are opposed, the moderate tidal movements called neaptides occur. Then the difference between high and low water is less than at any other time during themonth.1. What is the main point of the first paragraph?A. The waves created by ocean currents are very large.B. Despite the strength of the wind, it only moves surface water.- 10 - C. Deep ocean water is seldom affected by forces that move water.D.

Reading comprehension: Read the passage and choose the best answers.Ocean water plays an indispensable role in supporting life. The great ocean basins hold about300 million cubic miles of water. From this vast amount, about 80,000 cubic miles of water are suckedinto the atmosphere each year by evaporation and returned by precipitation and drainage to the ocean.More than 24,000 cubic miles of rain descend annually upon the continents. This vast amount isrequired to replenish the lakes and streams, springs and water tables on which all flora and fauna aredependent. Thus, the hydrosphere permits organic existence.The hydrosphere has strange characteristics because water has properties unlike those of anyother liquid. One anomaly is that water upon freezing expands by about 9 percent, whereas most liquidscontract on cooling. For this reason, ice floats on water bodies instead of sinking to the bottom. If theice sank, the hydrosphere would soon be frozen solidly, except for a thin layer of surface melt waterPage 3/4 during the summer season. Thus, all aquatic life would be destroyed and the interchange of warm andcold currents, which moderates climate, would be notably absent.Another outstanding charateristic of water is that water has a heat capacity which is the highestof all liquids and solids except ammonia. This characteristic enables the oceans to absorb and store vastquantities of heat, thereby often preventing climatic extremes. In addition, water dissolves moresubstances than any other liquid. It is this characteristic which helps make oceans a great storehouse forminerals which have been washed down from the continents. In several areas of the world theseminerals are being commercially exploited. Solar evaporation of salt is widely practised, potash isextracted from the Dead Sea, and magnesium is produced from sea water along the American GulfCoast.11: The author’s main purpose in this passage is to ___________.A. illustrate the importance of conserving waterB. describe the properties and uses of waterC. compare water with other liquidsD. explain how water is used in commerce and industry12: The phrase “this vast amount” in line 4 of paragraph 1 refers to __________ .A. 80,000 million cubic miles of waterB. 24,000 cubic miles of rainC. 80,000 cubic miles of waterD. 300 million cubic miles of water13: The word “replenish” in paragraph 1 can best replaced by ________ .A. fill againB. replaceC. evaporateD. form14: According to the passage, fish can survive in the oceans because ________ .A. evaporation and condensation create a water cycleB. there are currents in the oceansC. they do not need oxygenD. ice floats15: Which of the following is NOT mentioned as a characterisitic of water?A.

Specifically, they have shined brightly in even many fields commonly regarded as the man'sareas such as business, scientific research and social management. In some areas, women even showmore overwhelming power than men. The image of contemporary Vietnamese women withcreativeness, dynamism, success has become popular in Vietnam's society. The fact reveals that thegender gap has been remarkably narrowed and women enjoy many more opportunities to pursue theirsocial careers and obtain success, contributing to national socio-economic development. According toMs, Le Thi Quy, Director of the Gender/and Development Research Centre under the University ofSocial Sciences and Humanities, Hanoi National University, gender equity in Vietnam has reached ahigh level over the past decade. The rate of Vietnamese women becoming National Assembly membersfrom the 9th term to the 11th term increased 8.7%, bringing the proportion of Vietnamese women inauthority to 27.3%, the highest rate in Southeast Asia. There is no big gap in the level of literacy andschooling between men and women. Women account for about 37% of university and collegegraduates, 19.9% of doctoral degree holders and 6.7% of professors and associate professors.The legitimate rights of women and children are ensured more than ever before with morecomplete legal documents including laws, conventions and national action plans, among which thelaws on "gender equity" mark a turning-point in the empowerment of women.Mass media also highlights the continued success of women in every field and honors their greatimportance in modern society, helping to do away with outdated perceptions about traditional women'sduties. Many projects on reproductive health care, children protection, and family income improvementjointly conducted by various mass organizations, state agencies and non-governmental organizationshave created favorable conditions for women to become involved.1.

Nobel preferred not to beremembered as the inventor of dynamite so in 1895, just two weeks before his death, hecreated a fund to be used for awarding prizes to people who made worthwhile contributions tomankind. Originally there were five awards: literature, physics, chemistry, medicine and peace.Economics was added in 1968, just sixty-seven years after the first awards ceremony.Nobel’s original legacy of nine million dollars was invested, and the interest on this sumis used for the awards which vary from $30.000 to $ 125.000.4 Every year on December 10th, the anniversary of Nobel’s death, the awards (gold medal,illuminated diploma and money) are presented to the winners. Sometimes politics plays animportant role in the judges’ decisions.

Write your answerin the right box below.My lawyer, Mr. Turner, is the only man I know who has seen a ghost. He is a quiet eventempered man whose life is spent in dealing with facts. He is the last person in the world to giveway to fantasy. He has a wife and two children of whom he is proud, takes a modest holidayabroad every year and spends his Sundays gardening. He is knowledgeable about art andarchitecture, though he doesn’t pretend to be an expert by any means. It is, therefore, all the moresurprising that he should be so insistent about the ghost. It happened, so he says, like this:He was travelling from London to the north of England by train. It was a misty Novemberevening and the train was half empty. In fact, for the first part of the journey Mr. Turner had thecarriage to himself and sat dozing over a newspaper. However, at the first stop a passenger jumpedin, slamming the door behind him. He seemed out of his breath as if he had been running. He was astriking looking young man with dark, bushy hair and bright intelligent eyes. He was dressedrather oddly in a long waistcoat with silver buttons, tight trousers and embroidered waistcoat. Mr.Turner didn’t pay much attention to this because people wear all sorts of extravagant clothes thesedays and he had long grown accustomed to them.Presently, the two men got into conversation, as people do on long journeys. Mr. Turner wasinterested to discover that the young man was very knowledgeable about art – in particular5 portraits. His name, he said, was Joseph Hart, and he was on his way to visit an exhibition. Itseemed that he worked in a famous London Art Gallery – a picture restorer, perhaps, thought Mr.Turner, he seemed to know a great deal about varnishes and paints, and even more about thesubjects of certain portraits. When Mr. Turner asked his opinion of the portrait of a famous judgeby an artist he admired, his companion laughed and said: “He’s only a reproduction – a good one Iagree but you can’t talk to a reproduction”. He spoke as though the person in the portrait were stillliving.After a while the carriage got hot and steamy and Mr. Turner dropped off. He woke up just asthe train was drawing up at a junction with a grinding of brakes. His companion had disappeared.A few days later, having returned to London, Mr. Turner found himself near the Art Gallery.Moved by some impulse, he went in and inquired for Joseph Hart. The attendant directed him to aroom devoted to early nineteenth century portraits of well-known men. There was no one in theroom and Mr. Turner looked around him. Without knowing quite how he had got there, he foundhimself standing in front of a full-length portrait of a young dark man in tight trousers and anembroidered waistcoat. The eyes smiled at him with a hint of amusement. The name-plate at thefoot of the picture read: Joseph Hart, Gentleman, 1800-1835.61. What kind of person was Mr. Turner?A. ImaginativeB. FantasticC. SensibleD. Insensitive62. Although he was a lawyer, Mr. Turner_________.A. pretended to know a lot about art.B. knew something about artC. pretended to take interest in art.D. intended to learn more about art.63. When the passenger entered Mr. Turner’s department, ________.A. he was pantingB. he was runningC. the train was just trainingD. the carriage was half-empty.64.

For question 1-5, choose the best answer (A, B, C, or D). Write youranswers in the corresponding numbered boxes.Day after day we hear about how anthropogenic development is causing global warming. According to anincreasingly vocal minority, however, we should be asking ourselves how much of this is media hype and howmuch is based on real evidence. It seems, as so often is the case, that it depends on which expert you listen to, orwhich statistics you study.Yes, it is true that there is a mass of evidence to indicate that the world is getting warmer, with one of the world'sleading weather predictors stating that air temperatures have shown an increase of just under half a degree Celsiussince the beginning of the twentieth century. And while this may not sound like anything worth losing sleep overthe international press would have us believe that the consequences could be devastating. Other experts, however,are of the opinion that what we are seeing is just part of a natural upward and downward swing that has alwaysbeen part of the cycle of global weather. An analysis of the views of major meteorologists in the United Statesshowed that less than 20% of them believed that any change in temperature over the last hundred years was ourown fault-the rest attributed it to natural cyclical changes.6 There is, of course, no denying that we are still at a very early stage in understanding weather. The effects of suchvariables as rainfall, cloud formation, the seas and oceans, gases such as methane and ozone, or even solar energyare still not really understood, and therefore the predictions that we make using them cannot always be relied on.Dr. James Hansen, in 1988, was predicting that the likely effects of global warming would be a raising of worldtemperature which would have disastrous consequences for mankind: "a strong cause and effect relationshipbetween the current climate and human alteration of the atmosphere". He has now gone on record as stating thatusing artificial models of climate as a way of predicting change is all but impossible. In fact, he now believes that,rather than getting hotter, our planet is getting greener as a result of the carbon dioxide increase, with the prospectof increasing vegetation in areas which in recent history have been frozen wastelands.In fact. there is some evidence to suggest that as our computer-based weather models have become moresophisticated, the predicted rises in temperature have been cut back. In addition, if we look at the much reportedrise in global temperature over the last century, a close analysis reveals that the lion's share of that increase, almostthree quarters in total, occurred before man began to 'poison' his world with industrial processes and theaccompanying greenhouse gas emissions in the second half of the twentieth century.So should we pay any attention to those stories that scream out at us from billboards and television news headlines,claiming that man, with his inexhaustible dependence on oil-based machinery and ever more sophisticated forms oftransport is creating a nightmare level of 'greenhouse gas emissions, poisoning his environment and ripping openthe ozone layer? Doubters point to scientific evidence. which can prove that, of all the greenhouse gases, only twopercent come from man-made sources, the rest resulting from natural emissions.Who, then, to believe: the environmentalist exhorting us to leave the car at home, to buy re-usable productspackaged in recycled paper and to plant trees in our back yard? Or the sceptics, including, of course, a lot of bigbusinesses who have most to lose, when they tell us that we are making a mountain out of a molehill? And my ownopinion? The jury's still out as far as I am concerned!1. The author __________A. believe that man is causing global warming.B. believes that global warming is a natural process.C. is sure what the causes of global warming are.D. does not say what he believes the causes of global warming are.2. As to the cause of global warming, the author believes that _________A. occasionally the facts depend on who you are talking to.B. the facts always depend on who you are talking to.C. often the facts depend on which expert you listen to.D. you should not speak to experts.3. More than 80% of the top meteorologists in the United States are of the opinion that _________A. global warming should make us lose sleep.B. global warming is not the result of natural cyclical changes but man-made.C. the consequences of global warming will be devastating.D. global warming is not man-made, but the result of natural cyclical changes.4. Our understanding of weather __________A. leads to reliable predictions.B. is variable.C. cannot be denied.D. is not very developed yet.5. Currently, Dr James Hansen's beliefs include the fact that _________A. it is nearly impossible to predict weather change using artificial models.B. the consequences of global warming would be disastrous for mankind.C. there is a significant link between the climate now, and man's changing of the atmosphere.D.

Archaeologists have discovered skates made fromanimal bone. It seems that bone skates were used until the introduction of iron into Scandinavia about theyear 200 AD. Among the Scandinavian upper classes, skating was seen as an essential skill.2. …………………………….In the early twentieth century, skating was stylish and reserved, but at the 1924 Winter Olympics,11-year-old Sonja Hinnies introduced a more athletics attitude which inspired a new wave of popularity.Nowadays art and athletics are combined and modern skating is both graceful and physically demanding.3. …………………………….For beginners, balance and control are all important and speed can only increase with proficiency.The position of your body plays a great part in balance. Legs slightly bowed and the knees bent keep thebody weight centered; in effect the body leans slightly forward in this position. For skating, probablymore than any other sport or recreation, relaxation is vital.-4- 4. …………………………….For the skating position, the heels should almost be touching and the feet should be turned outwards. While pushing toward with a back foot, you make a very small movement with the other foot.Fairly easy, isn’t it? If you can keep this up for a while, you can then slowly increase the length of yourmovements as you gain experience.5. …………………………….Knowing how to fall must be learnt among the skater’s first skills. Even the best of theprofessionals fall. In order to fall without injury, you should be as relaxed as possible. In this way thesock of hitting the ice is lessened. To get up, use your hands to get into a kneeling position, then stand.6. …………………………….One you have learnt to move on the ice with confidence, there are various styles to be practisedfigure skating, free styles, distance, speed, skating pairs, and so on- but the basics of them all, and by farthe best approach, it first to learn figures can soon be learn figure skating and then elementary freestyle.With proper guidance available at most of the ice rinks, the basic figures can soon be learnt and the turns,jumps, and spins or elementary free style will so follow.7. …………………………….If you look at any good of professional skater, you will see how relaxed they are and how easilythey move. To achieve this, an exercise program should be regularly practised. It can be dangerous toskate with a stiff body and warm up exercises should at least include those for the legs, back andshoulders, with special emphasis on the ankles and the knees. After a long or intense session, the sameexercises should be used afterwards to avoid stiffness.8…………………………….Skating improves balance, co-ordination, relaxation and movement. It improves heart and lungactivity and generally strengthens the body. Combined with swimming or jogging, it provides a greatprogram for all-round health and fitness.ANSWERS:1. _______2. _______3. _______4. _______5. _______6. _______7. _______8. _______PART 4: Read the following passage and circle A, B, C or D that indicates the best answers for each ofthe questions below. (10 points)Our growing need for food, goods and energy has had many harmful effects on the environment.Gases produced by cars, power stations and factories cause acid rain, which kills trees and damagesbuildings. By using more environmentally-friendly forms of transport, we help reduce this form ofpollution.A layer of carbon dioxide and other gases traps heat and keeps the earth at the right temperature. This iscalled the green-house effect. By burning fossil fuels we are producing too much carbon dioxide, which iscausing temperatures to rise gradually. This global warming could lead to dramatic changes in climate.A layer of gas called ozone protects the earth from harmful ultra-violet radiation. Certain chemicals usedin industry, such as CFCs have caused a hole to develop in the ozone layer. The increased levels of ultraviolet radiation damage plants and sea life, and increase the risk of skin cancer.Most of the energy we use to heat and light building, run machines etc. is made by burning fossil fuels.This energy source will eventually get exhausted, so we need to use more alternative sources of energysuch as wind and solar power that are renewable and do not pollute the air. We also avoid wasting energybut using less electricity and water and insulating our new houses.We are destroying our forests, which produce oxygen and provide habitats – natural environments – foranimals and birds. Deforestation also allows rain to wash away the soil, making land useless for growing-5- things. We pollute water by dumping waste from factories and houses, and by accidentally spillingchemicals and oil. Chemical fertilizers damage rivers and lakes by causing a layer of tiny plants, calledalgal to cover the surface of water. Organic farming does not harm water supply.Burying rubbish in landfills cam make chemicals leak through the ground into rivers, and it uses a lot ofland. Burning rubbish adds to global warning. By sorting out rubbish for recycling we can cut down onwaste.1. The passage is mainly about ____________.A. Man and NatureB. how we should use the existing sources of energyC. environmental problemsD. rubbish recycling2. Acid rain is caused by ____________.A. gases emitted from cars and factoriesB. the burning of rubbishC. the burying of rubbishD. ultra-violet radiation3. Skin cancer may be caused by ____________.A. the global warmingB. acid rainC. air pollutionD. ultra-violet radiation4. We should use more alternative sources of energy such as wind and solar power because they____________.A. are cheaperB. will not be used up and do not pollute the airC. are easier to getD. can be recycled5. If we destroy forest ____________.A. animals and birds will have no place to liveB. rivers and lakes will be pollutedC. wildlife and farming will be affectedD. our wood supply will decrease.III/.

Write A, B, C or D toindicate your answers on the answer sheet. ( 10 points)Every drop of water in the ocean, even in the deepest parts, responds to the forces that create thetides. No other force that affects the sea is so strong. Compared with the tides, the waves created by thewind are surface movements felt no more than a hundred fathoms below the surface. The currents alsoseldom involve more than the upper several hundred fathoms despite their impressive sweep.The tides are a response of the waters of the ocean to the pull of the Moon and the more distantSun. In theory, there is a gravitational attraction between the water and even the outermost star of theuniverse. In reality, however, the pull of remote stars is so slight as to be obliterated by the control of theMoon and, to a lesser extent, the Sun. Just as the Moon rises later each day by fifty minutes, on theaverage, so, in most places, the time of high tide is correspondingly later each day. And as the Moonwaxes and wanes in its monthly cycle, so the height of the tide varies. The tidal movements are strongestwhen the Moon is a sliver in the sky, and when it is full. These are the highest flood tides and the lowestebb tides of the lunar month and are called the spring tides. At these times the Sun, Moon, and Earth arenearly in line and the pull of the two heavenly bodies is added together to bring the water high on thebeaches, to send its surf upward against the sea cliffs, and to draw a high tide into the harbors. Twice eachmonth, at the quarters of the Moon, when the Sun, Moon and Earth lie at the apexes of a triangularconfiguration and the pull of the Sun and Moon are opposed, the moderate tidal movements called neaptides occur. Then the difference between high and low water is less than at any other time during themonth.1. What is the main point of the first paragraph?A. The waves created by ocean currents are very large.B. Despite the strength of the wind, it only moves surface water.- 10 - C. Deep ocean water is seldom affected by forces that move water.D. The tides are the most powerful force to affect the movement of ocean water.2. The words "In reality" in the passage is closest in meaning toA. surprisinglyB. actuallyC. characteristically D. similarly3. It can be inferred from the passage that the most important factor in determining how muchgravitational effect one object in space has on the tides isA. sizeB. distanceC. temperatureD. density4. The word "configuration" in the passage is closest in meaning toA. unitB. centerC. surfaceD. arrangement5. Neap tides occur whenA. the Sun counteracts the Moon's gravitational attractionB. the Moon is fullC. the Moon is farthest from the SunD. waves created by the wind combine with the Moon's gravitational attractionIII.

Archaeologists have discovered skates made fromanimal bone. It seems that bone skates were used until the introduction of iron into Scandinavia about theyear 200 AD. Among the Scandinavian upper classes, skating was seen as an essential skill.2. …………………………….In the early twentieth century, skating was stylish and reserved, but at the 1924 Winter Olympics,11-year-old Sonja Hinnies introduced a more athletics attitude which inspired a new wave of popularity.Nowadays art and athletics are combined and modern skating is both graceful and physically demanding.3. …………………………….For beginners, balance and control are all important and speed can only increase with proficiency.The position of your body plays a great part in balance. Legs slightly bowed and the knees bent keep thebody weight centered; in effect the body leans slightly forward in this position. For skating, probablymore than any other sport or recreation, relaxation is vital.-4- 4. …………………………….For the skating position, the heels should almost be touching and the feet should be turned outwards. While pushing toward with a back foot, you make a very small movement with the other foot.Fairly easy, isn’t it? If you can keep this up for a while, you can then slowly increase the length of yourmovements as you gain experience.5. …………………………….Knowing how to fall must be learnt among the skater’s first skills. Even the best of theprofessionals fall. In order to fall without injury, you should be as relaxed as possible. In this way thesock of hitting the ice is lessened. To get up, use your hands to get into a kneeling position, then stand.6. …………………………….One you have learnt to move on the ice with confidence, there are various styles to be practisedfigure skating, free styles, distance, speed, skating pairs, and so on- but the basics of them all, and by farthe best approach, it first to learn figures can soon be learn figure skating and then elementary freestyle.With proper guidance available at most of the ice rinks, the basic figures can soon be learnt and the turns,jumps, and spins or elementary free style will so follow.7. …………………………….If you look at any good of professional skater, you will see how relaxed they are and how easilythey move. To achieve this, an exercise program should be regularly practised. It can be dangerous toskate with a stiff body and warm up exercises should at least include those for the legs, back andshoulders, with special emphasis on the ankles and the knees. After a long or intense session, the sameexercises should be used afterwards to avoid stiffness.8…………………………….Skating improves balance, co-ordination, relaxation and movement. It improves heart and lungactivity and generally strengthens the body. Combined with swimming or jogging, it provides a greatprogram for all-round health and fitness.ANSWERS:1. _______2. _______3. _______4. _______5. _______6. _______7. _______8. _______PART 4: Read the following passage and circle A, B, C or D that indicates the best answers for each ofthe questions below. (10 points)Our growing need for food, goods and energy has had many harmful effects on the environment.Gases produced by cars, power stations and factories cause acid rain, which kills trees and damagesbuildings. By using more environmentally-friendly forms of transport, we help reduce this form ofpollution.A layer of carbon dioxide and other gases traps heat and keeps the earth at the right temperature. This iscalled the green-house effect. By burning fossil fuels we are producing too much carbon dioxide, which iscausing temperatures to rise gradually. This global warming could lead to dramatic changes in climate.A layer of gas called ozone protects the earth from harmful ultra-violet radiation. Certain chemicals usedin industry, such as CFCs have caused a hole to develop in the ozone layer. The increased levels of ultraviolet radiation damage plants and sea life, and increase the risk of skin cancer.Most of the energy we use to heat and light building, run machines etc. is made by burning fossil fuels.This energy source will eventually get exhausted, so we need to use more alternative sources of energysuch as wind and solar power that are renewable and do not pollute the air. We also avoid wasting energybut using less electricity and water and insulating our new houses.We are destroying our forests, which produce oxygen and provide habitats – natural environments – foranimals and birds. Deforestation also allows rain to wash away the soil, making land useless for growing-5- things. We pollute water by dumping waste from factories and houses, and by accidentally spillingchemicals and oil. Chemical fertilizers damage rivers and lakes by causing a layer of tiny plants, calledalgal to cover the surface of water. Organic farming does not harm water supply.Burying rubbish in landfills cam make chemicals leak through the ground into rivers, and it uses a lot ofland. Burning rubbish adds to global warning. By sorting out rubbish for recycling we can cut down onwaste.1. The passage is mainly about ____________.A. Man and NatureB. how we should use the existing sources of energyC. environmental problemsD. rubbish recycling2.

(10 points)A.B.C.D.E.Prepare yourselfThe benefits of the sportWhen things go wrongDifferent skating techniquesA change in approachF.G.H.I.The right attitudeMoving offHolding your body correctlyHow it all started1…………………………….Ice skating has a history of thousands of years. Archaeologists have discovered skates made from animalbone. It seems that bone skates were used until the introduction of iron into Scandinavia about the year200 AD. Among the Scandinavian upper classes, skating was seen as an essential skill.2. …………………………….In the early twentieth century, skating was stylish and reserved, but at the 1924 Winter Olympics, 11year-old Sonja Hinnies introduced a more athletics attitude which inspired a new wave of popularity.Nowadays art and athletics are combined and modern skating is both graceful and physically demanding.3. …………………………….For beginners, balance and control are all important and speed can only increase with proficiency. Theposition of your body plays a great part in balance. Legs slightly bowed and the knees bent keep the bodyweight centered; in effect the body leans slightly forward in this position. For skating, probably more thanany other sport or recreation, relaxation is vital.4. …………………………….For the skating position, the heels should almost be touching and the feet should be turned out wards.While pushing toward with a back foot, you make a very small movement with the other foot. Fairly easy,isn’t it? If you can keep this up for a while, you can then slowly increase the length of your movements asyou gain experience.-9- 5. …………………………….Knowing how to fall must be learnt among the skater’s first skills. Even the best of the professionals fall.In order to fall without injury, you should be as relaxed as possible. In this way the sock of hitting the iceis lessened. To get up, use your hands to get into a kneeling position, then stand.6. …………………………….One you have learnt to move on the ice with confidence, there are various styles to be practised-figureskating, free styles, distance, speed, skating pairs, and so on- but the basics of them all, and by far the bestapproach, it first to learn figures can soon be learn figure skating and then elementary freestyle. Withproper guidance available at most of the ice rinks, the basic figures can soon be learnt and the turns,jumps, and spins or elementary free style will so follow.7. …………………………….If you look at any good of professional skater, you will see how relaxed they are and how easily theymove. To achieve this, an exercise program should be regularly practised. It can be dangerous to skatewith a stiff body and warm up exercises should at least include those for the legs, back and shoulders,with special emphasis on the ankles and the knees. After a long or intense session, the same exercisesshould be used afterwards to avoid stiffness.8…………………………….Skating improves balance, co-ordination, relaxation and movement. It improves heart and lung activityand generally strengthens the body. Combined with swimming or jogging, it provides a great program forall-round health and fitness.ANSWERS:1. _______2. _______3. _______4. _______5. _______6. _______7. _______8. _______PART 3: Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow. Write A, B, C or D toindicate your answers on the answer sheet. ( 10 points)Every drop of water in the ocean, even in the deepest parts, responds to the forces that create thetides. No other force that affects the sea is so strong. Compared with the tides, the waves created by thewind are surface movements felt no more than a hundred fathoms below the surface. The currents alsoseldom involve more than the upper several hundred fathoms despite their impressive sweep.The tides are a response of the waters of the ocean to the pull of the Moon and the more distantSun. In theory, there is a gravitational attraction between the water and even the outermost star of theuniverse. In reality, however, the pull of remote stars is so slight as to be obliterated by the control of theMoon and, to a lesser extent, the Sun. Just as the Moon rises later each day by fifty minutes, on theaverage, so, in most places, the time of high tide is correspondingly later each day. And as the Moonwaxes and wanes in its monthly cycle, so the height of the tide varies. The tidal movements are strongestwhen the Moon is a sliver in the sky, and when it is full. These are the highest flood tides and the lowestebb tides of the lunar month and are called the spring tides. At these times the Sun, Moon, and Earth arenearly in line and the pull of the two heavenly bodies is added together to bring the water high on thebeaches, to send its surf upward against the sea cliffs, and to draw a high tide into the harbors. Twice eachmonth, at the quarters of the Moon, when the Sun, Moon and Earth lie at the apexes of a triangularconfiguration and the pull of the Sun and Moon are opposed, the moderate tidal movements called neaptides occur. Then the difference between high and low water is less than at any other time during themonth.1. What is the main point of the first paragraph?A. The waves created by ocean currents are very large.B. Despite the strength of the wind, it only moves surface water.- 10 - C. Deep ocean water is seldom affected by forces that move water.D. The tides are the most powerful force to affect the movement of ocean water.2. The words "In reality" in the passage is closest in meaning toA. surprisinglyB. actuallyC. characteristically D. similarly3. It can be inferred from the passage that the most important factor in determining how muchgravitational effect one object in space has on the tides isA. sizeB. distanceC. temperatureD. density4. The word "configuration" in the passage is closest in meaning toA. unitB. centerC. surfaceD. arrangement5. Neap tides occur whenA. the Sun counteracts the Moon's gravitational attractionB. the Moon is fullC. the Moon is farthest from the SunD. waves created by the wind combine with the Moon's gravitational attractionIII.

Archaeologists have discovered skates made from animalbone. It seems that bone skates were used until the introduction of iron into Scandinavia about the year200 AD. Among the Scandinavian upper classes, skating was seen as an essential skill.2. …………………………….In the early twentieth century, skating was stylish and reserved, but at the 1924 Winter Olympics, 11year-old Sonja Hinnies introduced a more athletics attitude which inspired a new wave of popularity.Nowadays art and athletics are combined and modern skating is both graceful and physically demanding.3. …………………………….For beginners, balance and control are all important and speed can only increase with proficiency. Theposition of your body plays a great part in balance. Legs slightly bowed and the knees bent keep the bodyweight centered; in effect the body leans slightly forward in this position. For skating, probably more thanany other sport or recreation, relaxation is vital.4. …………………………….For the skating position, the heels should almost be touching and the feet should be turned out wards.While pushing toward with a back foot, you make a very small movement with the other foot. Fairly easy,isn’t it? If you can keep this up for a while, you can then slowly increase the length of your movements asyou gain experience.5. …………………………….Knowing how to fall must be learnt among the skater’s first skills. Even the best of the professionals fall.In order to fall without injury, you should be as relaxed as possible. In this way the sock of hitting the iceis lessened. To get up, use your hands to get into a kneeling position, then stand.6. …………………………….One you have learnt to move on the ice with confidence, there are various styles to be practised-figureskating, free styles, distance, speed, skating pairs, and so on- but the basics of them all, and by far the bestapproach, it first to learn figures can soon be learn figure skating and then elementary freestyle. Withproper guidance available at most of the ice rinks, the basic figures can soon be learnt and the turns,jumps, and spins or elementary free style will so follow.7. …………………………….If you look at any good of professional skater, you will see how relaxed they are and how easily theymove. To achieve this, an exercise program should be regularly practised. It can be dangerous to skatewith a stiff body and warm up exercises should at least include those for the legs, back and shoulders,with special emphasis on the ankles and the knees. After a long or intense session, the same exercisesshould be used afterwards to avoid stiffness.8…………………………….Skating improves balance, co-ordination, relaxation and movement. It improves heart and lung activityand generally strengthens the body. Combined with swimming or jogging, it provides a great program forall-round health and fitness.ANSWERS:1. _______2. _______3. _______4. _______5. _______6. _______7. _______8. _______PART 3: Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow. Write A, B, C or D toindicate your answers on the answer sheet. ( 10 points)-4- Every drop of water in the ocean, even in the deepest parts, responds to the forces that create thetides. No other force that affects the sea is so strong. Compared with the tides, the waves created by thewind are surface movements felt no more than a hundred fathoms below the surface. The currents alsoseldom involve more than the upper several hundred fathoms despite their impressive sweep.The tides are a response of the waters of the ocean to the pull of the Moon and the more distantSun. In theory, there is a gravitational attraction between the water and even the outermost star of theuniverse. In reality, however, the pull of remote stars is so slight as to be obliterated by the control of theMoon and, to a lesser extent, the Sun. Just as the Moon rises later each day by fifty minutes, on theaverage, so, in most places, the time of high tide is correspondingly later each day. And as the Moonwaxes and wanes in its monthly cycle, so the height of the tide varies. The tidal movements are strongestwhen the Moon is a sliver in the sky, and when it is full. These are the highest flood tides and the lowestebb tides of the lunar month and are called the spring tides. At these times the Sun, Moon, and Earth arenearly in line and the pull of the two heavenly bodies is added together to bring the water high on thebeaches, to send its surf upward against the sea cliffs, and to draw a high tide into the harbors. Twice eachmonth, at the quarters of the Moon, when the Sun, Moon and Earth lie at the apexes of a triangularconfiguration and the pull of the Sun and Moon are opposed, the moderate tidal movements called neaptides occur. Then the difference between high and low water is less than at any other time during themonth.1. What is the main point of the first paragraph?A. The waves created by ocean currents are very large.B.

Archaeologists have discovered skates made fromanimal bone. It seems that bone skates were used until the introduction of iron into Scandinavia about theyear 200 AD. Among the Scandinavian upper classes, skating was seen as an essential skill.2. …………………………….In the early twentieth century, skating was stylish and reserved, but at the 1924 Winter Olympics,11-year-old Sonja Hinnies introduced a more athletics attitude which inspired a new wave of popularity.Nowadays art and athletics are combined and modern skating is both graceful and physically demanding.3. …………………………….For beginners, balance and control are all important and speed can only increase with proficiency.The position of your body plays a great part in balance. Legs slightly bowed and the knees bent keep thebody weight centered; in effect the body leans slightly forward in this position. For skating, probablymore than any other sport or recreation, relaxation is vital.4. …………………………….For the skating position, the heels should almost be touching and the feet should be turned outwards. While pushing toward with a back foot, you make a very small movement with the other foot.Fairly easy, isn’t it? If you can keep this up for a while, you can then slowly increase the length of yourmovements as you gain experience.5. …………………………….Knowing how to fall must be learnt among the skater’s first skills. Even the best of theprofessionals fall. In order to fall without injury, you should be as relaxed as possible. In this way thesock of hitting the ice is lessened. To get up, use your hands to get into a kneeling position, then stand.6. …………………………….One you have learnt to move on the ice with confidence, there are various styles to be practisedfigure skating, free styles, distance, speed, skating pairs, and so on- but the basics of them all, and by farthe best approach, it first to learn figures can soon be learn figure skating and then elementary freestyle.With proper guidance available at most of the ice rinks, the basic figures can soon be learnt and the turns,jumps, and spins or elementary free style will so follow.7. …………………………….If you look at any good of professional skater, you will see how relaxed they are and how easilythey move. To achieve this, an exercise program should be regularly practised. It can be dangerous toskate with a stiff body and warm up exercises should at least include those for the legs, back andshoulders, with special emphasis on the ankles and the knees. After a long or intense session, the sameexercises should be used afterwards to avoid stiffness.- 12 - 8…………………………….Skating improves balance, co-ordination, relaxation and movement. It improves heart and lungactivity and generally strengthens the body. Combined with swimming or jogging, it provides a greatprogram for all-round health and fitness.ANSWERS:1. _______2. _______3. _______4. _______5. _______6. _______7. _______8. _______PART 4: Read the following passage and circle A, B, C or D that indicates the best answers for each ofthe questions below. (10 points)Our growing need for food, goods and energy has had many harmful effects on the environment.Gases produced by cars, power stations and factories cause acid rain, which kills trees and damagesbuildings. By using more environmentally-friendly forms of transport, we help reduce this form ofpollution.A layer of carbon dioxide and other gases traps heat and keeps the earth at the right temperature. This iscalled the green-house effect. By burning fossil fuels we are producing too much carbon dioxide, which iscausing temperatures to rise gradually. This global warming could lead to dramatic changes in climate.A layer of gas called ozone protects the earth from harmful ultra-violet radiation. Certain chemicals usedin industry, such as CFCs have caused a hole to develop in the ozone layer. The increased levels of ultraviolet radiation damage plants and sea life, and increase the risk of skin cancer.Most of the energy we use to heat and light building, run machines etc. is made by burning fossil fuels.This energy source will eventually get exhausted, so we need to use more alternative sources of energysuch as wind and solar power that are renewable and do not pollute the air. We also avoid wasting energybut using less electricity and water and insulating our new houses.We are destroying our forests, which produce oxygen and provide habitats – natural environments – foranimals and birds. Deforestation also allows rain to wash away the soil, making land useless for growingthings. We pollute water by dumping waste from factories and houses, and by accidentally spillingchemicals and oil. Chemical fertilizers damage rivers and lakes by causing a layer of tiny plants, calledalgal to cover the surface of water. Organic farming does not harm water supply.Burying rubbish in landfills cam make chemicals leak through the ground into rivers, and it uses a lot ofland. Burning rubbish adds to global warning. By sorting out rubbish for recycling we can cut down onwaste.1. The passage is mainly about ____________.A. Man and NatureB. how we should use the existing sources of energyC. environmental problemsD. rubbish recycling2. Acid rain is caused by ____________.A. gases emitted from cars and factoriesB. the burning of rubbishC. the burying of rubbishD. ultra-violet radiation3. Skin cancer may be caused by ____________.A. the global warmingB. acid rainC. air pollutionD. ultra-violet radiation4. We should use more alternative sources of energy such as wind and solar power because they____________.A. are cheaperB. will not be used up and do not pollute the airC. are easier to getD. can be recycled5. If we destroy forest ____________.A. animals and birds will have no place to liveB. rivers and lakes will be pollutedC. wildlife and farming will be affectedD. our wood supply will decrease.III/.

Although aboth my mother and older sister have science degreesno one else in the family had ever been studied law beforeand my parents were very proud of me. The problem wasthat I did not really know exactly what lawyers did do.I had a very romantic ideas about going to court to defendpeople who had been falsely accused of committing the crimes.I imagined myself like those lawyers on TV, arguingwith the judge and the prosecution lawyer and convincing tothe jury that my client was innocent. After only a couple ofweeks of very long and difficult lectures I am realizedthat a lot of what a lawyer does is very practical and notat all romantic. Nevertheless, I have began to understandthat to studying law was interesting and worthwhile for otherreasons. For example, you learn a lot of about consumers’rights. With it this kind of knowledge you can reallyhelp people.

(10 points)A.B.C.D.E.Prepare yourselfThe benefits of the sportWhen things go wrongDifferent skating techniquesA change in approachF.G.H.I.The right attitudeMoving offHolding your body correctlyHow it all started1…………………………….Ice skating has a history of thousands of years. Archaeologists have discovered skates madefrom animal bone. It seems that bone skates were used until the introduction of iron intoScandinavia about the year 200 AD. Among the Scandinavian upper classes, skating was seen asan essential skill.2. …………………………….In the early twentieth century, skating was stylish and reserved, but at the 1924 WinterOlympics, 11-year-old Sonja Hinnies introduced a more athletics attitude which inspired a newwave of popularity. Nowadays art and athletics are combined and modern skating is bothgraceful and physically demanding.3. …………………………….For beginners, balance and control are all important and speed can only increase withproficiency. The position of your body plays a great part in balance. Legs slightly bowed and theknees bent keep the body weight centered; in effect the body leans slightly forward in thisposition. For skating, probably more than any other sport or recreation, relaxation is vital.4. …………………………….For the skating position, the heels should almost be touching and the feet should be turned outwards. While pushing toward with a back foot, you make a very small movement with the otherfoot. Fairly easy, isn’t it? If you can keep this up for a while, you can then slowly increase thelength of your movements as you gain experience.5. …………………………….Knowing how to fall must be learnt among the skater’s first skills. Even the best of theprofessionals fall. In order to fall without injury, you should be as relaxed as possible. In thisway the sock of hitting the ice is lessened. To get up, use your hands to get into a kneelingposition, then stand.6. …………………………….One you have learnt to move on the ice with confidence, there are various styles to be practisedfigure skating, free styles, distance, speed, skating pairs, and so on- but the basics of them all,and by far the best approach, it first to learn figures can soon be learn figure skating and then elementary freestyle. With proper guidance available at most of the ice rinks, the basic figurescan soon be learnt and the turns, jumps, and spins or elementary free style will so follow.7. …………………………….If you look at any good of professional skater, you will see how relaxed they are and how easilythey move. To achieve this, an exercise program should be regularly practised. It can bedangerous to skate with a stiff body and warm up exercises should at least include those for thelegs, back and shoulders, with special emphasis on the ankles and the knees. After a long orintense session, the same exercises should be used afterwards to avoid stiffness.8…………………………….Skating improves balance, co-ordination, relaxation and movement. It improves heart and lungactivity and generally strengthens the body. Combined with swimming or jogging, it provides agreat program for all-round health and fitness.ANSWERS:1. _______2. _______3. _______4. _______5. _______6. _______7. _______8. _______PART 3: Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow. Write A, B, Cor D to indicate your answers on the answer sheet. ( 10 points)Every drop of water in the ocean, even in the deepest parts, responds to the forces thatcreate the tides. No other force that affects the sea is so strong. Compared with the tides, thewaves created by the wind are surface movements felt no more than a hundred fathoms belowthe surface. The currents also seldom involve more than the upper several hundred fathomsdespite their impressive sweep.The tides are a response of the waters of the ocean to the pull of the Moon and the moredistant Sun. In theory, there is a gravitational attraction between the water and even theoutermost star of the universe. In reality, however, the pull of remote stars is so slight as to beobliterated by the control of the Moon and, to a lesser extent, the Sun. Just as the Moon riseslater each day by fifty minutes, on the average, so, in most places, the time of high tide iscorrespondingly later each day. And as the Moon waxes and wanes in its monthly cycle, so theheight of the tide varies. The tidal movements are strongest when the Moon is a sliver in the sky,and when it is full. These are the highest flood tides and the lowest ebb tides of the lunar monthand are called the spring tides. At these times the Sun, Moon, and Earth are nearly in line andthe pull of the two heavenly bodies is added together to bring the water high on the beaches, tosend its surf upward against the sea cliffs, and to draw a high tide into the harbors. Twice eachmonth, at the quarters of the Moon, when the Sun, Moon and Earth lie at the apexes of atriangular configuration and the pull of the Sun and Moon are opposed, the moderate tidalmovements called neap tides occur. Then the difference between high and low water is less thanat any other time during the month.1. What is the main point of the first paragraph?A. The waves created by ocean currents are very large.B. Despite the strength of the wind, it only moves surface water.C. Deep ocean water is seldom affected by forces that move water.D. The tides are the most powerful force to affect the movement of ocean water.2. The words "In reality" in the passage is closest in meaning toA. surprisinglyB. actuallyC. characteristically D. similarly 3. It can be inferred from the passage that the most important factor in determining how muchgravitational effect one object in space has on the tides isA. sizeB. distanceC. temperatureD. density4. The word "configuration" in the passage is closest in meaning toA. unitB. centerC. surfaceD. arrangement5. Neap tides occur whenA. the Sun counteracts the Moon's gravitational attractionB. the Moon is fullC. the Moon is farthest from the SunD. waves created by the wind combine with the Moon's gravitational attractionIII.

American emphasis onconvenience and rapid consumption is best represented in fast foods such as hamburgers, French fries,and soft drinks, which almost all Americans have eaten. By the 1960s and 1970s fast foods became oneof America's strongest exports as franchises for McDonald's and Burger King spread through Europeand other parts of the world, including the former Soviet Union and Communist China. Traditionalmeals cooked at home and consumed at a leisurely pace - common in the rest of the world, and oncecommon in the United States - gave way to quick lunches and dinners eaten on the run as othercountries mimicked American cultural patterns.By the late 20th century, Americans had become more conscious of their diets, eating morepoultry, fish, and fresh fruits and vegetables and fewer eggs and less beef. They also began appreciatingfresh ingredients and livelier flavor, and cooks began to rediscover many world cuisines in forms closerto their original. In California, chefs combined the fresh fruits and vegetables available year-round withingredients and spices sometimes borrowed from immigrant kitchens to create an innovative cookingstyle that was lighter than traditional French, but more interesting and varied than typical Americancuisine. Along with the state's wines, California cuisine eventually took its place among theacknowledged forms of fine dining.26.

Read the following passage and answer the questions by choosing one answer A, B, C orD only.Long-haul flights have just got longer, with a non-stop flight from Singapore to New York nowin operation. But 18 hours in the air creates its own challenges. A lot of preparation goes into theultra long-haul flight. The air craft is specifically designed for the journey with more space andextensive entertainment services. The flight crews are also specially trained.The seasoned traveler is also more aware of the health risks associated with a flight that coversas much as 16.600 km (10.310 miles) in distance. Exposure to lower oxygen levels for up to 18,maybe 20, hours is abnormal for the human body. With deep vein thrombosis (DVT) theproblem really starts occurring after 12 hours (in-flight). This could lead to an increase in heartattack.Doctors believe that prevention is better than cure when it comes to in-flight health. Passengerson ultra long-range flights need to be provided with flight socks and, if necessary, tablets forthinning the blood. It is not just the health and vitality of the passenger that is at stake on a flightof this length, but also that of the flight crew. “They give us training on fatigue management andhow to adjust to the local time in New York and to exercise, as well as take care of our diet andeat lightly in-flight,” says Linda Wu, a stewardess on Singapore Airlines.However, passengers are trading in health concerns for convenience. An extra-long flight meanspassengers do not need to break up their journey and change planes. “They like to board once,de-plane once. It is saving time,” says James Williams from Singapore Airlines. “From LosAngeles to Singapore, passengers are saving two and a half hours. And to New York passengersare saving up to four hours in flying time.”Thai Airways is also launching a non-stop service to New York from Bangkok next June tocompete with Singapore Airlines. It is planning a similar service to Chicago, Cathay Pacific,Continental, Qantas and Emirates Airlines also offer flights that are more than 14 hours induration. However, there is still a question of whether longer non-stop flight will becomepopular.“They will certainly have a role in the future of aviation, there is no doubt about it. People willprefer to fly non-stop if it is available,” says Chris Johnson, an airline analyst. “But we arereaching the limits. These markets are at the very margin of aviation.

Choose the most suitable headingfrom the list A-I for each part (1-8) of the article. There is one extra heading which you donot need to use.APreparing yourselfBThe benefits of the sportCWhen things go wrongDDifferent skating techniquesEA change in approachFThe right attitudeGMoving offHHolding your body correctlyIHow it all started1. ______________Ice skating has a history of thousands of years. Archaeologists have discovered skates madefrom animal bone. It seems that bone skates were used until the introduction of iron intoScandinavia about the year 200 AD. Among the Scandinavian upper classes, skating was seen asan essential skill.2. ______________In the early twentieth century, skating was stylish and reserved, but at the 1924 WinterOlympics, 11-year-old Sonja Henie introduced a more athletics attitude which inspired a newwave of popularity. Nowadays art and athletics are combined and modern skating is bothgraceful and physically demanding.3. ________________For the beginner, balance and control are all important and speed can only increase withproficiency. The position of your body plays a great part in balance. Legs slightly bowed and theknees bent keep the body weight centred; in effect the body leans slightly forward in thisposition. For skating, probably more than any other sport or recreation, relaxation is vital.4. ________________For the starting position, the heels should almost be touching and the feet should be turnedoutwards. While pushing toward with the back foot, you make a very small movement with the4 other foot. Fairly easy, isn’t it? If you can keep this up for a while, you can then slowly increasethe length of your movements as you gain experience.5. ________________Knowing how to fall must be learnt among the skater’s first skills. Even the best of theprofessionals fall. In order to fall without injury, you should be as relaxed as possible. In thisway the shock of hitting the ice is lessened. To get up, use your hands to get into a kneelingposition, then stand.6. _______________Once you have learnt to move on the ice with confidence, there are various styles to bepracticed – figure skating, free style, distance, speed, skating in pairs, and so on – but the basis ofthem all, and by far the best approach, is first to learn figure skating and then elementaryfreestyle. With proper guidance available at most of the ice rinks, the basic figures can soon belearnt and the turns, jumps, and spins of elementary free style will soon follow.7. _______________If you look at any good or professional skater, you will see how relaxed they are and howeasily they move. To achieve this, an exercise programme should be regularly practiced. It canbe dangerous to skate with a stiff body and warm up exercises should at least include those forthe legs, back and shoulders, with special emphasis on the ankles and the knees. After a long orintense session, the same exercises should be used afterwards to avoid stiffness.8. _______________Skating improves balance, co-ordination, relaxation and movement. It improves heartand lung activity and generally strengthens the body. Combined with swimming or jogging, itprovides a great programme for all-round health and fitness.IV.

I won the Dublin Marathon and theEuropean Games and I now want to win a place in the Olympic Games. I also have a demandingjob and a family life to organize. My life is exciting, but I don't live in luxury.My route to the top was not what you might expect. I ran until I was sixteen, then went to collegeand got married. At 25 I made a come-back. That year my daughter was four and although fittingin a full-time job, family and running was not easy, I was managing it all fine. Then I had to stopwhen I hurt my left knee while running. I started back again a year later, and I'm now runningreally well.I am pleased that I am now performing at a high level, but I know that if I make it to theOlympic team there will be more training to do. I may have to decide to work only part-time then,until midday, and get somebody to help with the housework. You have to take an opportunity tocompete in the Olympics when it comes because you don't know if it will ever come again.For the moment, though, training has to fit around everything else in my life. I usually runinto work, nearly eight miles along a main road, in my running shoes and tracksuit. Then I quicklychange into my work uniform - my employers are used to that!

The banter and self-deprecatingbravery of foreman- Bud and his men rekindle memories of similarly laconic heroes in movies directed by Howard Hawks.Production design and special effects are hugely impressive. It's only the dialogue and characterization that creak . For all thecraftsmanship which goes into the film-making, the story itself is strictly B-movie material.B- The Thin Red Line: The video release of this version of the James Jones novel about the battle for Guadalcanal directed byAndrew Marton makes a fascinating counterpart to Terrence Malick's new film. Whereas Malick's approach is mystical andpoetic, Marton made a much more conventional war movie albeit one that is often truer to the book. He concentrated on a singlesoldier, and on his relationship with his abrasive sergeant. Malick's film is infinitely richer and more complex, but Marton'sversion has its moments. The flashback sequence, in which the soldier dreams of the wife he longs for, is handled with a harshnesswhich arguably works better than Malick's soft-focus imagery of the woman on the swing.C- On Guard: Loosely based on Paul Feval's 1875 novel, this corny but highly watchable swashbuckler is a cut above mostmusketeer adventures It has a consummate villain in Fabrice Luchini's clammy politician, orchestrating death and destructionbehind the scenes Vincent Perez makes an exuberant (if rather short-lived) hero, and while Daniel Auteuil is perhaps too moody a3 presence for a romp like this, he too has his moments as an acrobat-turned-swordsman. The film-makers peddle costume-dramacliches with so much wit and sparkle it never seems to matter.D- Character: A handsome but dour tale, set in turn-of-the-century Rotterdam. The excessively detailed production and costumedesign leave the film looking like a museum piece. Taking his cue from the surroundings, Jan Decleir is endlessly morose as thebrutal bailiff Dreverhaven, who behaves ruthlessly when evicting tenants. His antagonistic relationship with his son is at the coreof the story, but the film-makers seem too busy laying on the period detail to do justice to the dark and vicious parable.E - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: This digitally re-mastered video re-release shows off director Leone's craftsmanship to itsbest advantage. The sound editing, in particular, stands out every footstep, creaking floorboard or barking dog registers loud andclear. The storytelling is relentlessly cruel and whenever there's a lull, it only takes a burst of Morricone's magnificent music toquicken the pulse on a moral level. There isn't much to distinguish between the good (Clint Eastwood), the bad (Lee van Cleef)and the ugly (Ell Wallach), all of whom seem equally unscrupulous as they maraud across the post Civil War West.F - The Longest Day: 'Forty-eight International stars' trumpets the publicity for this three-hour Darryl Zanuck war epic. With fourdirectors and 23,000 extras as well, this is one pudding which is definitely over-egged. The early sequences, in which the battlehardened veterans wait for confirmation of when the invasion will happen, drag as much for the audience as for the soldiers. On alogistical level (if not an aesthetic one), this is an impressive enough feat but it cries out for the big screen. Panned and scanned onvideo, it is inevitably a diminished experience.81- 87.
