VIII. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to
indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.
Ocean water plays an indispensable role in supporting life. The great ocean basins hold about 300
million cubic miles of water. From this vast amount, about 80,000 cubic miles of water are sucked
into 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 is
required to replenish the lakes and streams, springs and water tables on which all flora and fauna are
dependent. Thus, the hydrosphere permits organic existence.
The hydrosphere has strange characteristics because water has properties unlike those of any
other liquid . One anomaly is that water upon freezing expands by about 9 percent, whereas most
liquids contract on cooling. For this reason, ice floats on water bodies instead of sinking to the bottom.
If the ice sank, the hydrosphere would soon be frozen solidly, except for a thin layer of surface melt
water during the summer season. Thus, all aquatic life would be destroyed and the interchange of
warm and cold currents, which moderates climate, would be notably absent.
Another outstanding charateristic of water is that water has a heat capacity which is the
highest of all liquids and solids except ammonia; This characterisitc enables the oceans to absorb and
store vast quantities of heat, thereby often preventing climatic extremes. In addition, water dissolves
more substances than any other liquid . It is this characteristic which helps make oceans a great
storehouse for minerals which have been washed down from the continents. In several areas of the
world these minerals are being commercially exploited . Solar evaporation of salt is widely practised,
potash is extracted from the Dead Sea, and magnesium is produced from sea water along the
American Gulf Coast.
Question 45: The author’s main purpose in this passage is to _________.
A. describe the properties and uses of water
B. illustrate the importance of conserving water
C. compare water with other liquids
D. explain how water is used in commerce and industry

C. 80,000 million cubic miles of water

D. 300 million cubic miles of water

Question 47: The word “replenish” in paragraph 1 can best replaced by ________ .
A. fill again

D. replace

Question 48: According to the passage, fish can survive in the oceans because ________ .

C. Water is good solvent.

D. Water can absorb heat

Question 50: The word “outstanding” in paragraph 3 is closest in meaning to ________ .
A. special

B. exceptionally good C. amusing

D. important

Question 51: According the passage, the hydrosphere is NOT _________ .
A. responsible for all forms of life

B. in danger of freezing over

C. the part of the earth covered by water

D. a source of natural resources

Question 52: The author’s tone in the passage can best be described as ________ .
A. dispassionate

B. dogmatic

Increasing numbers of parents in the U.S. are choosing to teach their children at home. In fact,
the U.S. Department of Education has estimated that in 1999, about 850,000 children were being
homeschooled . Some educational experts say that the real number is double this estimate, and the
ranks of homeschooled children seem to be growing at the average rate of about eleven percent every
year.
At one time, there was a theory accounting for homeschooling: it was traditionally used for
students who could not attend school because of behavioral or learning difficulties. Today, however,
more parents are taking on the responsibility of educating their own children at home due to their
dissatisfaction with the educational system. Many parents are unhappy about class size, as well as
problems inside the classroom. Teacher shortages and lack of funding mean that, in many schools,
one teacher is responsible for thirty or forty students. The children are, therefore, deprived of the
attention they need . Escalating classroom violence has also motivated some parents to remove their
children from school.
Although there have been a lot of arguments for and against it, homeschooling in the U.S. has
become a multi-million dollar industry, and it is growing bigger and bigger. There are now plenty of
websites, support groups, and conventions that help parents protect their rights and enable them to
learn more about educating their children. Though once it was the only choice for troubled children,
homeschooling today is an accepted alternative to an educational system that many believe is failing.
Question 55: The past participle “homeschooled” in the first paragraph is best equivalent to
“_____at home”.
A. taught

B. untaught

C. self-studied

D. self-learned

Question 56: This estimated number was presented by______.
A. the parents

B. homeschooled children

C. a governmental office

D. school teachers

Question 57: According to some experts, the exact number of homeschooled children in the US in
the last year of the 20th century must be ______.
A. 1,600,000

B. 1,700,000

C. 850,000

D. 1,900,000

Question 58: Parents can teach children at home with the support of ________.
A. documents, websites and support groups
B. The internet, conventions along with support groups
C. books, support groups and the Internet
D. support groups, teachers and websites
