Part 2: Read the passage below and choose the best answer for each question. (1,0pt)
SMART ENERGY
The next few decades will see great changes in the way energy is supplied and used. In some major oil
producing nations, “peak oil” has already been reached, and there are increasing fears of global warming.
Consequently, many countries are focusing on the switch to a low carbon economy. This transition will lead to
major changes in the supply and use of electricity. [A] Firstly, there will be an increase in overall demand, as
consumers switch from oil and gas to electricity to power their homes and vehicles. [B] Secondly, there will be
an increase in power generation, not only in terms of how much is generated, but also how it is generated, as to
provide the electricity industry with there is growing electricity generation from renewable sources. [C] To

meet these challenges, countries are investing in Smart Grid technology. [D] This system aims a better
understanding of power generation and demand, and to use this information to create a more efficient power
network.
Smart Grid technology basically involves the application of a computer system to the electricity network.
The computer system can be used to collect information about supply and demand and improve engineer's
ability to manage the system. With better information about electricity demand, the network will be able to
increase the amount of electricity delivered per unit generated, leading to potential reductions in fuel needs and
carbon emissions. Moreover, the computer system will assist in reducing operational and maintenance costs.
Smart Grid technology offers benefits to the consumer too. They will be able to collect real-time
information on their energy use for each appliance. Varying tariffs throughout the day will give customers the
incentive to use appliances at times when supply greatly exceeds demand, leading to great reductions in bills.
For example, they may use their washing machines at night. Smart meters can also be connected to the internet
or telephone system, allowing customers to switch appliances on or off remotely. Furthermore, if houses are
fitted with the apparatus to generate their own power, appliances can be set to run directly from the on-site
power source, and any excess can be sold to the grid.
With these changes comes a range of challenges. The first involves managing the supply and demand.
Sources of renewable energy, such as wind, wave and solar, are notoriously unpredictable, and nuclear power,
which is also set to increase as nations switch to alternative energy sources, is inflexible. With oil and gas, it is
relatively simple to increase the supply of energy to match the increasing demand during peak times of the day
or year. With alternative sources, this is far more difficult, and may lead to blackouts or system collapse.
Potential solutions include investigating new and efficient ways to store energy and encouraging consumers to
use electricity at off-peak times.
A second problem is the fact that many renewable power generation sources are located in remote areas,
such as windy uplands and coastal regions, where there is currently a lack of electrical infrastructure. New
infrastructures therefore must be built. Thankfully, with improved smart technology, this can be done more
efficiently by reducing the reinforcement or construction costs.
Although Smart Technology is still in its infancy, pilot schemes to promote and test it are already
underway. Consumers are currently testing the new smart meters which can be used in their homes to manage
electricity use. There are also a number of demonstrations being planned to show how the smart technology
could practically work, and trials are in place to test the new electrical infrastructure. It is likely that technology
will be added in “layers”, starting with “quick win” methods which will provide initial carbon savings, to be
followed by more advanced systems at a later date. Cities are prime candidates for investment into smart
energy, due to the high population density and high energy use. It is here where Smart Technology is likely to
be promoted first, utilising a range of sustainable power sources, transport solutions and an infrastructure for
charging electrically powered vehicles. The infrastructure is already changing fast. By the year 2050, changes
in the energy supply will have transformed our homes, our roads and our behaviour.
1. According to paragraph 1, what has happened in some oil producing countries?
A. They are unwilling to sell their oil any more.
B. They are not producing as much oil as they used to.

Part 2: Read the following extract and use your own words to summarize it (in about 100 words). You
MUST NOT copy or re-write the original. (0,5pt)
Most people drink orange juice and eat oranges because they are said to be rich in vitamin C. There are also
other foods that are rich in vitamin C. It is found in citrus fruits and vegetables such as broccoli, spinach,
cabbage, cauliflower, and carrots.
Vitamin C is important to our health. Do you really know how essential this nutrient is to our health and wellbeing? Our body needs to heal itself. Vitamin C can repair and prevent damage to the cells in our body and heal
wounds. It also keeps our teeth and gums healthy. That is not all. It protects our body from infections such as
colds and flu and also helps us to get better faster when we have these infections. That is why a lot of people
drink orange juice and take vitamin C tablets every day. This wonderful vitamin is also good for our heart. It
protects the linings of the arteries, which are the blood vessels that carry oxygenated blood. In other words, it
offers protection against heart disease.
If we do not get enough vitamin C, which means we are not eating enough food that contains this vitamin, it
can lead to serious diseases. Lack of vitamin C can lead to scurvy, which causes swollen gums, cheeks, fingers,
hands, toes, and feet. In serious conditions, it can lead to bleeding from wounds, loss of teeth, and opening up
of wounds. Therefore, make sure you have enough vitamin C in your diet.
