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.
Although most universities in the United States are on a semester system, which offers classes in the fall and spring, some
schools observe a quarter system comprised of fall, winter, spring, and summer quarters. The academic year, September to
June, is divided into three quarters of eleven weeks each beginning in September, January, and March: the summer quarter,
June to August, is composed of shorter sessions of vary length.
There are several advantages and disadvantages to the quarter system. On the plus side, students who wish to complete their
degrees in less than the customary four years may take advantage of the opportunity to study year round by enrolling in all
four quarters. In addition, although most students begin their programs in the fall quarter, they may enter at the beginning of
any other quarters. Finally, since the physical facilities are kept in operation year round, the resources are used effectively to
serve the greatest number of students. But there are several disadvantages as well. Many faculty complain that eleven-week
term is simply not enough for them to cover the material required by most college coursed.
Students also find it difficult to complete the assignments in such a short period of time. In order to combine the advantages
of the quarter system with those of the semester system some colleges and universities have instituted a three-term trimester
system. In fourteen weeks, faculty and students have more time to cover material and finish course requirements, but the
additional term provides options for admission during the year and accelerates the degree programs for those students who
wish to graduate early.
Question 43: Which of the following would be the best title for this passage?
A. The Quarter System
B. The Semester System
C. The Academic Year
D. Universities in the United States
Question 44: How many terms are there in a quarter system?
A. Two regular terms and two summer terms

B. They last eleven weeks
C. They allow students to graduate early
D. They provide more options for admission
Question 46: The word “them” in paragraph 2 refers to.......

Question 47: When is the academic year?

Long ago prehistoric man began to domesticate a number of wild plants and animals for his own use. This not only
provided more abundant food but also allowed more people to live on a smaller plot of ground. We tend toforget that all of
our present-day pets, livestock, and food plants were taken from the wild and developed into the forms we know today.
As centuries passed and human cultures evolved and blossomed, humans began to organise their knowledge of nature into
the broad field of natural history. One aspect of early natural history concerned the use of plants for drugs and medicine. The
early herbalists sometimes overworked their imaginations in this respect. For example, it was widely believed that a plant or
part of a plant that resembles an internal organ would cure ailments of that organ, Thus, an extract made from a heart-shaped
leaf might be prescribed for a person suffering from heart problems.

and their uses.

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 00 to 00.
Although most universities in the United States are on a semester system, which offers classes in the fall and spring, some
schools observe a quarter system comprised of fall, winter, spring, and summer quarters. The academic year, September to
June, is divided into three quarters of eleven weeks each beginning in September, January, and March: the summer quarter,
June to August, is composed of shorter sessions of vary length.
There are several advantages and disadvantages to the quarter system. On the plus side, students who wish to complete their
degrees in less than the customary four years may take advantage of the opportunity to study year round by enrolling in all
four quarters. In addition, although most students begin their programs in the fall quarter, they may enter at the beginning of
any other quarters. Finally, since the physical facilities are kept in operation year round, the resources are used effectively to
serve the greatest number of students. But there are several disadvantages as well. Many faculty complain that eleven-week
term is simply not enough for them to cover the material required by most college coursed.
Students also find it difficult to complete the assignments in such a short period of time. In order to combine the advantages
of the quarter system with those of the semester system some colleges and universities have instituted a three-term trimester
system. In fourteen weeks, faculty and students have more time to cover material and finish course requirements, but the
additional term provides options for admission during the year and accelerates the degree programs for those students who
wish to graduate early.
Question 43: When is the academic year?
A. September to August B. August to June
C. September to June
D. June to August
Question 44: Where would this passage most probably be found?
A. In a dictionary published in the United States
B. In a American newspaper
C. In a general guide to colleges and universities in the United States
D. In a college catalog for a university in the United States
Question 45: When may students begin studying in a school that uses a quarter system?
A. September
B. at the beginning of any quarter
C. at the beginning of the academic year
D. Summer semester only
Question 46: Which of the following would be the best title for this passage?
A. The Quarter System
B. The Academic Year
C. The Semester System
D. Universities in the United States
Question 47: The word "customary" in paragraph 2 could best be replaced by.......

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 08 to 15.
Although most universities in the United States are on a semester system, which offers classes in the fall and spring, some
schools observe a quarter system comprised of fall, winter, spring, and summer quarters. The academic year, September to
June, is divided into three quarters of eleven weeks each beginning in September, January, and March: the summer quarter,
June to August, is composed of shorter sessions of vary length.
There are several advantages and disadvantages to the quarter system. On the plus side, students who wish to complete their
degrees in less than the customary four years may take advantage of the opportunity to study year round by enrolling in all
four quarters. In addition, although most students begin their programs in the fall quarter, they may enter at the beginning of
any other quarters. Finally, since the physical facilities are kept in operation year round, the resources are used effectively to
serve the greatest number of students. But there are several disadvantages as well. Many faculty complain that eleven-week
term is simply not enough for them to cover the material required by most college coursed.
Students also find it difficult to complete the assignments in such a short period of time. In order to combine the advantages
of the quarter system with those of the semester system some colleges and universities have instituted a three-term trimester
system. In fourteen weeks, faculty and students have more time to cover material and finish course requirements, but the
additional term provides options for admission during the year and accelerates the degree programs for those students who
wish to graduate early.

A. Two regular terms and two summer terms
B. Four regular terms and one summer term
C. Three regular terms and one summer term
