Read the following passage choose A, B, C or D which is the best answer. It is not true that the British talk about the weather more than any other nations. In many parts of the world the weather holds just as much fascination. Part of fascination arises because the weather in many parts of the world is very difficult to forecast. Because Britian is an island sandwiched between a large continient and a large ocean, slight changes in direction of winds in the Atlantic or movements in areas of high or low pressure can make a major difference to our weather. Most of the time our weather is unremarkable. But the last few years weather patterns have been causing so much trouble that it raises the question is the weather changing to such an extent that it amounts to a change in the climate ? It is a question that it is very difficult to answer. The daily and weekly variations in weather are so great that it takes years of careful measurement to detect changes in the average weather from year to year, and to detect changes in the climate involves the worldwide application of a whole number of scientific investigation. Howere, looking at the distant past and estimating what may happen in the future based on theoretical possibilities, it seems there are two possibilities. The world could be slipping back towards another ice age. But in the shorter term what man is doing may well lead to a heating up the planet which could delay, if not prevent, any forthcoming ice age. It is sudden and unexpected weather which made people wonder what is happening to our climate-like the once-in- a-lifetime experience of the vicious storm which swept southern England in Autumn 1987. The southern states of the USA are used to such storms, the southern part of Britain isn’t. And when literally millions of trees were uprooted and millions of pounds worth of damage was done to houses, farms and business, people wondered just what was going on. It was probably the worst storm in South-East Britain for some 300 years. 1. People are more interested in the weather in the places where A. the weather changes often. B. weather forcasts may be wrong. C. the sea affects the climate. D. the wind makes a big difference. 2. It is very difficult for scientist to discover A. how great the changes are. B. If the weather is getting worse. C. if the climate is changing. D. what causes so many changes. 3. Scientist now think that A. it is impossible to say what the weather will be like. B. in the future the weather will be the same as in the past. C. it will become hotter all over the world. D. the world will certaintly be covered with ice. 4. what does the storm of 1987 show us ? A. storms can be damaging to trees and property. B. Britain’s climate is becoming more like that of the USA. C. We no longer know what weather to expect. D. The climate in South-East Britain has been getting worse for 300 years. Section III. Writing Question 1.
