Telecommuting is a form of computer communication between employees’ homes and
offices. For employees whose jobs involve sitting at a terminal or word processor
entering data or typing reports, the location of the computer is of no consequence. If the
machine can communicate over telephone lines, when the work is completed, employees
can dial the office computer and transmit the material to their employers. A recent
survey in USA Today estimates that there are approximately 8,7 million telecommuters.
But although the numbers are rising annually, the trend does not appear to be as
significant as predicted when Business Week published “The Portable Executive” as its
cover story a few years ago. Why hasn’t telecommuting become more popular?
Clearly, change simply takes time. But in addition, there has been active resistance on
the part of many managers. These executives claim that supervising the telecommuters
in a large work force scattered across the country would be too difficult, or, at least,
systems for managing them are not yet developed, thereby complicating the manager’s
responsibilities. It is also true that employees who are given the option of telecommuting
are reluctant to accept the opportunity. Most people feel that they need regular
interaction with a group, and many are concerned that they will not have the same
consideration for advancement if they are not more visible in the office setting. Some
people feel that even when a space in their homes is set aside as a work area, they never
really get away from the office.
Question 36: How many Americans are involved in telecommuting?
A. More than predicted in Business Week.
B. More than 8 million.
C. Fewer than estimated in USA Today.
D. Fewer than last year.
Question 37: The phrase "of no consequence" means......
A. of no use
B. of no good
C. unimportant D. irrelevant
Question 38: The author mentions all of the following as concerns of telecommuting,
EXCEPT......
A. the opportunities for advancement
B. the different system of supervision
C. the lack of interaction with a group
D. The work place is in the home
Question 39: The word "them" which is bold and italic refers to......
A. systems
B. telecommuters
C. executives D. responsibilities
Question 40: The reason why telecommuting has not become popular is that the
employees......
A. needn't regular interaction with their families
B. are worried about the promotion if they are not seen at the office
C. like that a work area in their home is away from the office
D. are ignorant of telecommuting
Question 41: It can be inferred from the passage that the author is......
A. a telecommuter
B. the manager
C. a statistician D. a reporter
Question 42: When Business Week published "The Portable Executive", it implied
that......
A. systems for managing telecommuters were not effective
B. there was resistance on the part of many managers about telecommuting
C. the trend for telecommuting was optimistic
D. most telecommuters were satisfied with their work

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 43 to 50.
Marianne Moore (1887-1972) once said that her writing could be called poetry only
because there was no other name for it. Indeed, her poems appear to be extremely
compressed essays that happen to be printed in jagged lines on the page. Her subjects
were varied: animals, labourers, artists, and the craft of poetry. From her general reading
came quotations that she found striking or insightful. She included these in her poems,
scrupulously enclosed in quotation marks, and sometimes identified in footnotes. Of this
practice, she wrote, "Why many quotation marks?" I am asked ... When a thing has been
so well that it could not be said better, why paraphrase it? Hence, my writing is, if not a
cabinet of fossils, a kind of collection of flies in amber." Close observation and
concentration on detail and the methods of her poetry.
Marianne Moore grew up in Kirkwood, Missouri, near St. Lois. After graduation from
Bryn Mawr College in 1909, she taught commercial subjects at the Indian School in
Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Later, she became a librarian in New York City. During the
1920’s she was editor of The Dial, an important literary magazine of the period. She
lived quietly all her life, mostly in Brooklyn, New York. She spent a lot of time at the
Bronx Zoo, fascinated by animals. Her admiration of the Brooklyn Dodgers - before the
team moved to Los Angeles - was widely known.
Her first book of poems was published in London in 1921 by a group of friends
associated with the Imagist movement. From that time on, her poetry has been read with
interest by succeeding generations of poets and readers. In 1952, she was awarded the
Pulitzer Prize for her Collected Poems. She wrote that she did not write poetry for
money or fame. To earn a living is needful, but it can be done in routine ways. ‘One
writes because one has a burning desire to objectify what it is indispensable to one's
happiness to express.”

A. The influence of the imagists on Marianne Moore.

B. They do not use traditional verse forms.
C. They were all published in The Dial.
D. They tend to be abstract.
Question 45: According to the passage Moore wrote about all of the following
EXCEPT......
A. artists
B. animals
C. fossils
D. workers
Question 46: Where did Marianne Moore grow up?
A. In Carlisle, Pennsylvania
