A The Apollo astronauts B Soil on the Moon C What the Moon is made of D Basalt and breccia An “ abundance” in line is A a disorderly pile B a wealthy bunch C an insignificant proportion D a large amount According to the passage, what does Moon soil consist of? A Hydrogen and helium B Large chunks of volcanic lava C Tiny pieces of stones and glass D Stream of gases Which of the following was NOT brought back to the Earth by the astronauts? A Basalt B Soil C Breccia D Plant life An “ indication” in line 14 is A an exhibition B a clue C a denial D a dictate According to the passage, breccia was formed A when objects struck the Moon B from volcanic lava C when streams of gases hit the surface of the Moon D from the interaction of helium and hydrogen It is implied in the passage that scientists believe that the gases found in the Moon rocks A were not originally from the Moon B were created inside the rocks C traveled from the Moon to the Sun D caused the Moon’s temperature to rise The author’s purpose in this passage is to A describe some rock and soil samples B explain some of the things learned from space flights C propose a new theory about the creation of the Moon D demonstrate the difference between basalt and breccia 10 It can be inferred from the passage that A the only items of importance that astronauts brought back from the Moon were rock and soil samples B scientists learned relatively little from the Moon rock and soil samples C scientists not believe that it is necessary to return to the Moon D rock and soil samples were only some of a myriad of significant items from the Moon III Read the following passage then choose the best answer from the four options (marked A, B, C and D) to complete the numbered blanks in the passage Identify your answers by writing the corresponding letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet Stamp collecting!

John: Oh, you mean the one I am writing on the Loch Ness monster? Well, it is going rather slowly at present Mary: Oh, dear Why’s that? John: Well, the inspiration’s there but everything is wrong One day I tire myself out with the writing but the next day I can hardly keep myself awake On top of that my work processor keeps breaking down Mary: Perhaps you need to take a week off John: Well, I am going up to Scotland to some research for the book next week Mary: That should be nice, especially if you see the monster! But you’ll still have your mind on your work the whole time John: That’s true In fact at this stage seeing the monster would be a mixed blessing as I’d have to rewrite and revise large chunk that I’ve already done But going away gives the engineer a good chance to see where the trouble is By the time I get back, my machine should be free of all its gremlins, even if I’m still under the weather Section II Mike: Hello, I’m Mike Jill has just phoned to say that she is coming to visit me She should arrive just after four o’clock So here I am at the Tourist Information Office I wanted to call at lunchtime but they were closed and I’ve had to wait until two o’clock They’ve given me some leaflets and I’ve bought myself a local paper I want to find somewhere good for us to go tonight Jill used to be mad on music and dancing And me, I was always keen on sport, well watching it on television, anyway Jill was the one who went in for all the exciting things like skiing down mountains There are plenty of restaurants, but the food isn’t always all that good and I probably can’t afford it anyway Oh dear, I don’t know what to choose Ah, this looks good There is a guided tour of the local television studios If you’re lucky you can actually see some of the stars filming new episodes of soap operas and things What does it say here in the small print? “Small group only, who have to watch from behind the screen.” That sounds OK to me as long as there aren’t loads of other people, in which case they probably won’t let anyone watch at all Oh, yes, there’s the Science Museum Jill says she doesn’t like science but I’ve been on about taking her there for years and she is quite keen on the hands- on exhibit There’s a room where all the walls are distorted and painted with misleading lines, and the furniture is all the wrong shapes and sizes It deceives your eyes and the funny thing is that you stumble about and bump into things Jill says it wouldn’t happen to her She thinks she’s got a superior sense of balance or something But she just doesn’t know what it is like in there I’d certainly love to prove her wrong Oh, dear, the Science Museum closes at five each evening That’s not very good Oh well, we can go tomorrow but that still leaves tonight to plan I wonder whether she’d like to go and see Herbert and Muriel She likes music, so why not spend the evening with two really top-class professionals?
