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 from 1 to 10.
When the first white men came to America, they found vast amounts of natural resources of
tremendous value. Forests covered a large part of the nation; later gas, oil and minerals were found in
unbelievable amounts. There was a great abundance of very fertile soil. Forests, prairies, streams and
rivers abounded with wildlife. So vast were these resources that it seemed that they could never be used
up. So forests were destroyed to make way for farmland. Grasslands and prairies were ploughed and
harrowed. Minerals and oil were used in great quantities to supply a young industrial nation. Almost

every river became the scene of factories, mills and power companies. Mammals and birds were
slaughtered for food and sport.
Within a short time, the results were obvious. Floods caused millions of dollars worth of damage
yearly. The very fertile soil washed away or blew up in great clouds. The seemingly inexhaustible oil and
minerals showed signs of depletion. Rivers were filled with silt from eroding farms and wastes from
factories. Many of the rivers were made unfit for fish. Several species of birds disappeared, and some
mammals seemed on the verge of going. Future timber shortages were predicted. In short, Americans
soon became to realize that some sort of conservation program must be set up, if future as well as present
Americans were to share in the resources that are the heritage of every American.
