each of the questions from 06 to 12.
For many people who live in cities, parks are an important part of the landscape. They provide a place for people to relax
and play sports, as well as a refuge from the often harsh environment of a city. What people often overlook is that parks also
provide considerable environmental benefits. One benefit of parks is that plants absorb carbon dioxide - a key pollutant - and
emit oxygen, which humans need to breathe. According to one study, an acre of trees can absorb the same amount of carbon
dioxide that a typical car emits in 11,000 miles of driving. Parks also make cities cooler. Scientists have long noted what is
called the Urban Heat Island Effect: building materials such as metal, concrete, and asphalt absorb much more of the sun’s
heat and release it much more quickly than organic surfaces like trees and grass. Because city landscapes contain so much of
these building materials, cities are usually warmer than surrounding rural areas. Parks and other green spaces help to mitigate
the Urban Heat Island Effect.
Unfortunately, many cities cannot easily create more parks because most land is already being used for buildings, roads,
parking lots, and other essential parts of the urban environment. However, cities could benefit from many of the positive
effects of parks by encouraging citizens to create another type of green space: rooftop gardens. While most people would not
think of starting a garden on their roof, human beings have been planting gardens on rooftops for thousands of years. Some
rooftop gardens are very complex and require complicated engineering, but others are simple container gardens that anyone
can create with the investment of a few hundred dollars and a few hours of work.
Rooftop gardens provide many of the same benefits as other urban park and garden spaces, but without taking up the muchneeded land. Like parks, rooftop gardens help to replace carbon dioxide in the air with nourishing oxygen. They also help to
lessen the Urban Heat Island Effect, which can save people money. In the summer, rooftop gardens prevent buildings from
absorbing heat from the sun, which can significantly reduce cooling bills. In the winter, gardens help hold in the heat that
materials like brick and concrete radiate so quickly, leading to savings on heating bills. Rooftop vegetable and herb gardens
can also provide fresh food for city dwellers, saving them money and making their diets healthier. Rooftop gardens are not

only something everyone can enjoy, they are also a smart environmental investment.

each of the questions from 43 to 50.
One of the most interesting authors of the twentieth century, J.R.R Tolkien, achieved fame through his highly inventive
trilogy, 'The Lord of the Rings'. Bom in 1892, Tolkien received his education from Oxford and then served in World War I.
After the war, he became a professor of Anglo Saxon and English language and literature at Oxford University. Although
published in 1965, the three books that comprise 'The Lord of the Rings' were written in intervals from 1936 to 1949. This
was mainly due to Tolkien's responsibilities as a professor and the outbreak of World War II. By the late 1960s, this
fascinating trilogy had become a sociological phenomenon as young people intently studied the mythology and legends
created by Tolkien.
The trilogy is remarkable not only for its highly developed account of historical fiction but also its success as a modern
heroic epic. The main plot describes the struggle between good and evil kingdom as they try to acquire a magic ring that has
the power to rule the world. The novels, which are set in a time called Middle Earth, describe a detailed fantasy world.
3


Established before humans populated the Earth, Middle Earth was inhabited by good and evil creatures such as hobbits, elves,
monsters, wizards, and some humans. The characters and the setting of Middle Earth were modeled after mythological stories
from Greece and Northern Europe.
Although readers have scrutinized the texts for inner meaning and have tried to connect the trilogy with Tolkien's real life
experiences in England during World War II, he denied the connection. He claims that the story began in his years as an
undergraduate student and grew out of his desire to create mythology and legends about elves and their language. Tolkien
was a masterful fantasy novelist who used his extensive knowledge of folklore to create a body of work that is still read and
enjoyed throughout the world today.

fascinating trilogy had become a sociological phenomenon as young people intently studied the mythology and legends
created by Tolkien.
The trilogy is remarkable not only for its highly developed account of historical fiction but also its success as a modern
heroic epic. The main plot describes the struggle between good and evil kingdom as they try to acquire a magic ring that has
the power to rule the world. The novels, which are set in a time called Middle Earth, describe a detailed fantasy world.
Established before humans populated the Earth, Middle Earth was inhabited by good and evil creatures such as hobbits, elves,
7


monsters, wizards, and some humans. The characters and the setting of Middle Earth were modeled after mythological stories
from Greece and Northern Europe.
Although readers have scrutinized the texts for inner meaning and have tried to connect the trilogy with Tolkien's real life
experiences in England during World War II, he denied the connection. He claims that the story began in his years as an
undergraduate student and grew out of his desire to create mythology and legends about elves and their language. Tolkien
was a masterful fantasy novelist who used his extensive knowledge of folklore to create a body of work that is still read and
enjoyed throughout the world today.

each of the questions from 44 to 50.
For many people who live in cities, parks are an important part of the landscape. They provide a place for people to relax
and play sports, as well as a refuge from the often harsh environment of a city. What people often overlook is that parks also
provide considerable environmental benefits. One benefit of parks is that plants absorb carbon dioxide - a key pollutant - and
emit oxygen, which humans need to breathe. According to one study, an acre of trees can absorb the same amount of carbon
dioxide that a typical car emits in 11,000 miles of driving. Parks also make cities cooler. Scientists have long noted what is
called the Urban Heat Island Effect: building materials such as metal, concrete, and asphalt absorb much more of the sun’s
heat and release it much more quickly than organic surfaces like trees and grass. Because city landscapes contain so much of
these building materials, cities are usually warmer than surrounding rural areas. Parks and other green spaces help to mitigate
the Urban Heat Island Effect.
Unfortunately, many cities cannot easily create more parks because most land is already being used for buildings, roads,
parking lots, and other essential parts of the urban environment. However, cities could benefit from many of the positive
effects of parks by encouraging citizens to create another type of green space: rooftop gardens. While most people would not
think of starting a garden on their roof, human beings have been planting gardens on rooftops for thousands of years. Some
rooftop gardens are very complex and require complicated engineering, but others are simple container gardens that anyone
can create with the investment of a few hundred dollars and a few hours of work.
Rooftop gardens provide many of the same benefits as other urban park and garden spaces, but without taking up the muchneeded land. Like parks, rooftop gardens help to replace carbon dioxide in the air with nourishing oxygen. They also help to
lessen the Urban Heat Island Effect, which can save people money. In the summer, rooftop gardens prevent buildings from
absorbing heat from the sun, which can significantly reduce cooling bills. In the winter, gardens help hold in the heat that
materials like brick and concrete radiate so quickly, leading to savings on heating bills. Rooftop vegetable and herb gardens
can also provide fresh food for city dwellers, saving them money and making their diets healthier. Rooftop gardens are not
only something everyone can enjoy, they are also a smart environmental investment.
Question 44: Using the information in paragraph 2 as a guide, it can be inferred that......
11


A. some plants are not suitable for growth in rooftop gardens
B. most people prefer parks to rooftop gardens
C. most people prefer life in the country over life in the city
D. cities with rooftop gardens are cooler than those without rooftop gardens
Question 45: The author’s tone in the passage is best described as.......
A. argumentative
B. informative
C. passionate
D. descriptive
Question 46: It can be inferred from the passage that the author would most likely endorse a program that......
A. offered free admission to schools willing to take their students on field trips to the city park
B. promised vacation getaways to cooler destinations for those trapped in the city at the peak of summer
C. permitted the construction of buildings in city park land provided they have rooftop gardens
D. extended discounts on plants to customers who use them to create rooftop gardens
Question 47: According to the author, one advantage that rooftop gardens have over parks is that they.......
A. replenish the air with nourishing oxygen
B. do not require the use of valuable urban land
C. decrease the Urban Heat Island Effect
D. are less expensive than traditional pEirk spaces
Question 48: Based on its use in paragraph 2, it can be inferred that 'mitigate' belongs to which of the following word
groups?
A. absorb, intake, consume
B. exacerbate, aggravate, intensify
C. allay, alleviate, reduce
D. obliterate, destroy, annihilate
Question 49: The author claims all of the following to be the benefits of rooftop gardens except.......
A. better food for city dwellers
B. improved air quality
C. savings on heating and cooling costs
D. increased space for private relaxation
Question 50: Based on the information in paragraph 3, which of the following best describes the main difference between
parks and rooftop gardens?
A. Parks absorb heat while rooftop gardens do not.
B. Parks require much space while rooftop gardens do not.
C. Parks are public while rooftop gardens are private.

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.
One of the most interesting authors of the twentieth century, J.R.R Tolkien, achieved fame through his highly inventive
trilogy, 'The Lord of the Rings'. Bom in 1892, Tolkien received his education from Oxford and then served in World War I.
After the war, he became a professor of Anglo Saxon and English language and literature at Oxford University. Although
published in 1965, the three books that comprise 'The Lord of the Rings' were written in intervals from 1936 to 1949. This
was mainly due to Tolkien's responsibilities as a professor and the outbreak of World War II. By the late 1960s, this
fascinating trilogy had become a sociological phenomenon as young people intently studied the mythology and legends
created by Tolkien.
The trilogy is remarkable not only for its highly developed account of historical fiction but also its success as a modern
heroic epic. The main plot describes the struggle between good and evil kingdom as they try to acquire a magic ring that has
the power to rule the world. The novels, which are set in a time called Middle Earth, describe a detailed fantasy world.
Established before humans populated the Earth, Middle Earth was inhabited by good and evil creatures such as hobbits, elves,
15


monsters, wizards, and some humans. The characters and the setting of Middle Earth were modeled after mythological stories
from Greece and Northern Europe.
Although readers have scrutinized the texts for inner meaning and have tried to connect the trilogy with Tolkien's real life
experiences in England during World War II, he denied the connection. He claims that the story began in his years as an
undergraduate student and grew out of his desire to create mythology and legends about elves and their language. Tolkien
was a masterful fantasy novelist who used his extensive knowledge of folklore to create a body of work that is still read and
enjoyed throughout the world today.
Question 43: According to the passage, when did "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy become popular with young people?
A. After World War II
B. In the late 1960s
C. In 1892
D. Between 1936 and 1946
Question 44: When did Tolkien begin to create this trilogy?
A. When he was a professor
B. During World War I
C. During World War II

A. J.R.R Tolkien and his trilogy
B. All of J.R.R Tolkien's fantasy books
C. The popularity of J.R.R Tolkien

D. Modern-day Greece
Question 49: What does the word "trilogy" in the first paragraph mean?

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 42 to 48.
For many people who live in cities, parks are an important part of the landscape. They provide a place for people to relax
and play sports, as well as a refuge from the often harsh environment of a city. What people often overlook is that parks also
provide considerable environmental benefits. One benefit of parks is that plants absorb carbon dioxide - a key pollutant - and
emit oxygen, which humans need to breathe. According to one study, an acre of trees can absorb the same amount of carbon
dioxide that a typical car emits in 11,000 miles of driving. Parks also make cities cooler. Scientists have long noted what is
called the Urban Heat Island Effect: building materials such as metal, concrete, and asphalt absorb much more of the sun’s
heat and release it much more quickly than organic surfaces like trees and grass. Because city landscapes contain so much of
these building materials, cities are usually warmer than surrounding rural areas. Parks and other green spaces help to mitigate
the Urban Heat Island Effect.
Unfortunately, many cities cannot easily create more parks because most land is already being used for buildings, roads,
parking lots, and other essential parts of the urban environment. However, cities could benefit from many of the positive
effects of parks by encouraging citizens to create another type of green space: rooftop gardens. While most people would not
think of starting a garden on their roof, human beings have been planting gardens on rooftops for thousands of years. Some
rooftop gardens are very complex and require complicated engineering, but others are simple container gardens that anyone
can create with the investment of a few hundred dollars and a few hours of work.
Rooftop gardens provide many of the same benefits as other urban park and garden spaces, but without taking up the muchneeded land. Like parks, rooftop gardens help to replace carbon dioxide in the air with nourishing oxygen. They also help to
lessen the Urban Heat Island Effect, which can save people money. In the summer, rooftop gardens prevent buildings from
absorbing heat from the sun, which can significantly reduce cooling bills. In the winter, gardens help hold in the heat that
materials like brick and concrete radiate so quickly, leading to savings on heating bills. Rooftop vegetable and herb gardens
can also provide fresh food for city dwellers, saving them money and making their diets healthier. Rooftop gardens are not
only something everyone can enjoy, they are also a smart environmental investment.
Question 42: The author claims all of the following to be the benefits of rooftop gardens except.......
A. savings on heating and cooling costs
B. increased space for private relaxation
C. improved air quality
D. better food for city dwellers
Question 43: The author’s tone in the passage is best described as.......
A. passionate
B. descriptive
C. informative
D. argumentative
Question 44: Based on the information in paragraph 3, which of the following best describes the main difference between
parks and rooftop gardens?
A. Parks absorb heat while rooftop gardens do not.
B. Parks are expensive to create while rooftop gardens are not.
C. Parks require much space while rooftop gardens do not.
D. Parks are public while rooftop gardens are private.
Question 45: Using the information in paragraph 2 as a guide, it can be inferred that......
A. most people prefer parks to rooftop gardens
B. some plants are not suitable for growth in rooftop gardens
19


C. cities with rooftop gardens are cooler than those without rooftop gardens
D. most people prefer life in the country over life in the city
Question 46: According to the author, one advantage that rooftop gardens have over parks is that they.......
A. replenish the air with nourishing oxygen
B. are less expensive than traditional pEirk spaces
C. decrease the Urban Heat Island Effect
D. do not require the use of valuable urban land
Question 47: Based on its use in paragraph 2, it can be inferred that 'mitigate' belongs to which of the following word
groups?
A. absorb, intake, consume
B. allay, alleviate, reduce
C. obliterate, destroy, annihilate
D. exacerbate, aggravate, intensify
Question 48: It can be inferred from the passage that the author would most likely endorse a program that......
A. extended discounts on plants to customers who use them to create rooftop gardens
B. offered free admission to schools willing to take their students on field trips to the city park
C. promised vacation getaways to cooler destinations for those trapped in the city at the peak of summer
D. permitted the construction of buildings in city park land provided they have rooftop gardens

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.
One of the most interesting authors of the twentieth century, J.R.R Tolkien, achieved fame through his highly inventive
trilogy, 'The Lord of the Rings'. Bom in 1892, Tolkien received his education from Oxford and then served in World War I.
After the war, he became a professor of Anglo Saxon and English language and literature at Oxford University. Although
published in 1965, the three books that comprise 'The Lord of the Rings' were written in intervals from 1936 to 1949. This
was mainly due to Tolkien's responsibilities as a professor and the outbreak of World War II. By the late 1960s, this
fascinating trilogy had become a sociological phenomenon as young people intently studied the mythology and legends
created by Tolkien.
The trilogy is remarkable not only for its highly developed account of historical fiction but also its success as a modern
heroic epic. The main plot describes the struggle between good and evil kingdom as they try to acquire a magic ring that has
the power to rule the world. The novels, which are set in a time called Middle Earth, describe a detailed fantasy world.

Established before humans populated the Earth, Middle Earth was inhabited by good and evil creatures such as hobbits, elves,
monsters, wizards, and some humans. The characters and the setting of Middle Earth were modeled after mythological stories
from Greece and Northern Europe.
Although readers have scrutinized the texts for inner meaning and have tried to connect the trilogy with Tolkien's real life
experiences in England during World War II, he denied the connection. He claims that the story began in his years as an
undergraduate student and grew out of his desire to create mythology and legends about elves and their language. Tolkien
was a masterful fantasy novelist who used his extensive knowledge of folklore to create a body of work that is still read and
enjoyed throughout the world today.
