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 05 to 12.
In the world today, particular in the two most industrialized areas, North America and Europe, recycling is the big news.
People are talking about it, practicing it, and discovering new ways to be sensitive to the environment. Recycling means
finding ways to use products a second time. The motto of the recycling movement is “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”.
The first step is to reduce garbage. In stores, a shopper has to buy products in blister packs, boxes and expensive plastic
wrappings. A hamburger from a fast food restaurant comes in lots of packaging] usually paper, a box and a bag. All that
packaging is wasted resources. People should try to buy things that are wrapped simply, and to reuse cups and utensils.
Another way to reduce waste is to buy high quality products. When low-quality appliances break, many customers throw
them away and buy new ones - a loss of more resources and more energy. For example, if a customer buys a high-quality
appliance that can be easily repaired, the manufacturer receives an important message. In the same way, if a customer chooses
a product with less packaging, that customer sends an important message to the manufacturers. To reduce garbage, the throwaway must stop.
The second step is to reuse. It is better to buy juices and soft drinks in returnable bottles. After customers empty the bottles,
they return them to the stores. The manufacturers of the drinks collect bottles, wash them, and then fill them again. The
energy that is necessary to make new bottles is saved. In some parts of the world, returning bottles for money is a common
practice. In those places, the garbage dumps have relatively little glass and plastic from throw-away bottles.
The third step being environmentally sensitive is to recycle. Spent motor oil can be cleaned and used again. Aluminum cans
are expensive to make. It takes the same amountof energy to make one aluminum can as it does to run a color TV set for three
hours. When people collect and recycle aluminum (for new cans), they help save one of the world’s precious resources.

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 18 to 24.
The principle of use and disuse states that those parts of organisms' bodies that are used grown larger. Those parts that are
not tend to wither away. It is an observed fact that when you exercise particular muscles, they grow. Those that are never
used diminish. By examining a man's body, we can tell which muscles he uses and which he doesn't, we may even be able to
guess his profession or his reaction. Enthusiasts of the "body-building" cult make use of the principle of use and disuse to
"build" their bodies, almost like a piece of sculpture, into whatever unnatural shape is demanded by fashion in this peculiar
minority culture. Muscles are not the only parts of the body that respond to use in this kind of way. Walk barefoot and you
acquire harder skin on your soles. It is easy to tell a farmer from a bank teller by looking at their hands alone. The farmer's
hands are homy, hardened by long exposure to rough work. The teller's hands are relatively soft.
The principle of use and disuse enables animals to become better at the job of surviving in their world, progressively better
during their lifetime as a resultof living in that world. Humans, through direct exposure to sunlight, or lack of it, develop a
skin color which equips them better to survive in the particular local conditions.
Too much sunlight is dangerous. Enthusiastic sunbathers with very fair skins are susceptible to skin cancer. Too little
sunlight, on the other hand, leads to vitamin-D deficiency and rickets. The brown pigment melanin which is synthesized
under the influence of sunlight, makes a screen to protect the underlying tissues from the harmful effects of further sunlight.
If a sun-tanned person moves to a less sunny climate, the melanin disappears, and the body is able to benefit from what little
sun there is. This can be represented as an instance of the principle of use and disuse: skin goes brown when it is "used", and
fades to white when it is not.
Question 18: The phrase "wither away" in line 2 is closest in meaning to........
A. shrink
B. perish
C. split
D. rot
Question 19: What does the passage mainly discuss?
A. How the principles of use and disuse change people's concepts of themselves.
B. The changes thatoccur according to the principle of use and disuse.
C. The effects of the sun on the principle of use and disuse.
D. The way in which people change themselves to conform tofashion.

C. automatically benefit
D. survive in any condition
Question 21: The author suggests that melanin........

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.
In the world today, particular in the two most industrialized areas, North America and Europe, recycling is the big news.
People are talking about it, practicing it, and discovering new ways to be sensitive to the environment. Recycling means
finding ways to use products a second time. The motto of the recycling movement is “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”.
The first step is to reduce garbage. In stores, a shopper has to buy products in blister packs, boxes and expensive plastic
wrappings. A hamburger from a fast food restaurant comes in lots of packaging] usually paper, a box and a bag. All that
packaging is wasted resources. People should try to buy things that are wrapped simply, and to reuse cups and utensils.
Another way to reduce waste is to buy high quality products. When low-quality appliances break, many customers throw
them away and buy new ones - a loss of more resources and more energy. For example, if a customer buys a high-quality
appliance that can be easily repaired, the manufacturer receives an important message. In the same way, if a customer chooses
a product with less packaging, that customer sends an important message to the manufacturers. To reduce garbage, the throwaway must stop.
The second step is to reuse. It is better to buy juices and soft drinks in returnable bottles. After customers empty the bottles,
they return them to the stores. The manufacturers of the drinks collect bottles, wash them, and then fill them again. The
energy that is necessary to make new bottles is saved. In some parts of the world, returning bottles for money is a common
practice. In those places, the garbage dumps have relatively little glass and plastic from throw-away bottles.
The third step being environmentally sensitive is to recycle. Spent motor oil can be cleaned and used again. Aluminum cans
are expensive to make. It takes the same amountof energy to make one aluminum can as it does to run a color TV set for three
hours. When people collect and recycle aluminum (for new cans), they help save one of the world’s precious resources.

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 15 to 21.
The principle of use and disuse states that those parts of organisms' bodies that are used grown larger. Those parts that are
not tend to wither away. It is an observed fact that when you exercise particular muscles, they grow. Those that are never
used diminish. By examining a man's body, we can tell which muscles he uses and which he doesn't, we may even be able to
guess his profession or his reaction. Enthusiasts of the "body-building" cult make use of the principle of use and disuse to
"build" their bodies, almost like a piece of sculpture, into whatever unnatural shape is demanded by fashion in this peculiar
minority culture. Muscles are not the only parts of the body that respond to use in this kind of way. Walk barefoot and you
acquire harder skin on your soles. It is easy to tell a farmer from a bank teller by looking at their hands alone. The farmer's
hands are homy, hardened by long exposure to rough work. The teller's hands are relatively soft.
The principle of use and disuse enables animals to become better at the job of surviving in their world, progressively better
during their lifetime as a resultof living in that world. Humans, through direct exposure to sunlight, or lack of it, develop a
skin color which equips them better to survive in the particular local conditions.
Too much sunlight is dangerous. Enthusiastic sunbathers with very fair skins are susceptible to skin cancer. Too little
sunlight, on the other hand, leads to vitamin-D deficiency and rickets. The brown pigment melanin which is synthesized
under the influence of sunlight, makes a screen to protect the underlying tissues from the harmful effects of further sunlight.
If a sun-tanned person moves to a less sunny climate, the melanin disappears, and the body is able to benefit from what little
sun there is. This can be represented as an instance of the principle of use and disuse: skin goes brown when it is "used", and
fades to white when it is not.

A. The effects of the sun on the principle of use and disuse.

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.
In the world today, particular in the two most industrialized areas, North America and Europe, recycling is the big news.
People are talking about it, practicing it, and discovering new ways to be sensitive to the environment. Recycling means
finding ways to use products a second time. The motto of the recycling movement is “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”.
The first step is to reduce garbage. In stores, a shopper has to buy products in blister packs, boxes and expensive plastic
wrappings. A hamburger from a fast food restaurant comes in lots of packaging] usually paper, a box and a bag. All that
packaging is wasted resources. People should try to buy things that are wrapped simply, and to reuse cups and utensils.
Another way to reduce waste is to buy high quality products. When low-quality appliances break, many customers throw
them away and buy new ones - a loss of more resources and more energy. For example, if a customer buys a high-quality
appliance that can be easily repaired, the manufacturer receives an important message. In the same way, if a customer chooses
a product with less packaging, that customer sends an important message to the manufacturers. To reduce garbage, the throwaway must stop.
The second step is to reuse. It is better to buy juices and soft drinks in returnable bottles. After customers empty the bottles,
they return them to the stores. The manufacturers of the drinks collect bottles, wash them, and then fill them again. The
energy that is necessary to make new bottles is saved. In some parts of the world, returning bottles for money is a common
practice. In those places, the garbage dumps have relatively little glass and plastic from throw-away bottles.
The third step being environmentally sensitive is to recycle. Spent motor oil can be cleaned and used again. Aluminum cans
are expensive to make. It takes the same amountof energy to make one aluminum can as it does to run a color TV set for three
hours. When people collect and recycle aluminum (for new cans), they help save one of the world’s precious resources.
Question 43: Which area is considered one of the most industrialized?
A. Asia
B. Europe
C. Middle East
D. South America
Question 44: The word “practice” is closest in meaning to.......
A. belief
B. training
C. deed
D. exercise
11


Question 45: It is a waste when customers buy low-quality products because.......
A. they will soon throw them away
B. they are very cheap.
C. customers always change their idea
D. they have to be repaired many times.
Question 46: What is the topic of the passage?
A. How to live sensitively to the environment.
B. What people understand the term “recycle’
C. What is involved in the recycling movement.
D. How to reduce garbage disposal.
Question 47: What best describe the process of reuse?
A. The bottles are filled again after being returned, collected and washed.
B. The bottles are collected, washed, returned and filled again.
C. The bottles are collected, returned, filled again and washed.
D. The bottles are washed, returned filled again and collected.
Question 48: What does the word “sensitive” means?
A. friendly
B. cautious
C. responding
D. logical
Question 49: Garbage dumps in some areas have relatively little glass and plastic because......
A. few bottles are made of glass or plastic
B. returned bottles are few
C. each returned bottle is paid
D. people are ordered to return bottles
Question 50: People can do the following to reduce waste EXCEPT........
A. buy more hamburgers
B. buy simply-wrapped things
C. reuse cups
D. buy high-quality products

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 03 to 10.
In the world today, particular in the two most industrialized areas, North America and Europe, recycling is the big news.
People are talking about it, practicing it, and discovering new ways to be sensitive to the environment. Recycling means
finding ways to use products a second time. The motto of the recycling movement is “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”.
The first step is to reduce garbage. In stores, a shopper has to buy products in blister packs, boxes and expensive plastic
wrappings. A hamburger from a fast food restaurant comes in lots of packaging] usually paper, a box and a bag. All that
packaging is wasted resources. People should try to buy things that are wrapped simply, and to reuse cups and utensils.
Another way to reduce waste is to buy high quality products. When low-quality appliances break, many customers throw
them away and buy new ones - a loss of more resources and more energy. For example, if a customer buys a high-quality
appliance that can be easily repaired, the manufacturer receives an important message. In the same way, if a customer chooses
a product with less packaging, that customer sends an important message to the manufacturers. To reduce garbage, the throwaway must stop.
The second step is to reuse. It is better to buy juices and soft drinks in returnable bottles. After customers empty the bottles,
they return them to the stores. The manufacturers of the drinks collect bottles, wash them, and then fill them again. The
energy that is necessary to make new bottles is saved. In some parts of the world, returning bottles for money is a common
practice. In those places, the garbage dumps have relatively little glass and plastic from throw-away bottles.
The third step being environmentally sensitive is to recycle. Spent motor oil can be cleaned and used again. Aluminum cans
are expensive to make. It takes the same amountof energy to make one aluminum can as it does to run a color TV set for three
hours. When people collect and recycle aluminum (for new cans), they help save one of the world’s precious resources.
Question 3: What best describe the process of reuse?
A. The bottles are filled again after being returned, collected and washed.
B. The bottles are washed, returned filled again and collected.
C. The bottles are collected, returned, filled again and washed.
D. The bottles are collected, washed, returned and filled again.
Question 4: It is a waste when customers buy low-quality products because.......
A. they are very cheap.
B. they will soon throw them away
C. they have to be repaired many times.
D. customers always change their idea
Question 5: The word “practice” is closest in meaning to.......
A. deed
B. belief
C. exercise
D. training
Question 6: What does the word “sensitive” means?
A. logical
B. friendly
C. responding
D. cautious
Question 7: What is the topic of the passage?
A. What people understand the term “recycle’
B. How to reduce garbage disposal.
C. What is involved in the recycling movement.
D. How to live sensitively to the environment.

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 13 to 19.
The principle of use and disuse states that those parts of organisms' bodies that are used grown larger. Those parts that are
not tend to wither away. It is an observed fact that when you exercise particular muscles, they grow. Those that are never
used diminish. By examining a man's body, we can tell which muscles he uses and which he doesn't, we may even be able to
guess his profession or his reaction. Enthusiasts of the "body-building" cult make use of the principle of use and disuse to
"build" their bodies, almost like a piece of sculpture, into whatever unnatural shape is demanded by fashion in this peculiar
minority culture. Muscles are not the only parts of the body that respond to use in this kind of way. Walk barefoot and you
acquire harder skin on your soles. It is easy to tell a farmer from a bank teller by looking at their hands alone. The farmer's
hands are homy, hardened by long exposure to rough work. The teller's hands are relatively soft.
The principle of use and disuse enables animals to become better at the job of surviving in their world, progressively better
during their lifetime as a resultof living in that world. Humans, through direct exposure to sunlight, or lack of it, develop a
skin color which equips them better to survive in the particular local conditions.
Too much sunlight is dangerous. Enthusiastic sunbathers with very fair skins are susceptible to skin cancer. Too little
sunlight, on the other hand, leads to vitamin-D deficiency and rickets. The brown pigment melanin which is synthesized
under the influence of sunlight, makes a screen to protect the underlying tissues from the harmful effects of further sunlight.
If a sun-tanned person moves to a less sunny climate, the melanin disappears, and the body is able to benefit from what little
sun there is. This can be represented as an instance of the principle of use and disuse: skin goes brown when it is "used", and
fades to white when it is not.
Question 13: The word "susceptible" could be best replaced by.........
A. allergic
B. suggestible
C. vulnerable
D. condemned

A. is a synthetic product
B. helps protect fair-skinned people
C. is necessary for the production of vitamin-D
D. is beneficial in sunless climates
Question 17: From the passage, it can be inferred that author views body building........
A. as an artistic from
B. with scientific interest
C. with enthusiasm
D. of doubtful benefits
Question 18: It can be inferred from the passage that the principle of use and disuse enables organisms to.......
A. improve their lifetime
B. survive in any condition
C. change their existence
D. automatically benefit
Question 19: What does the passage mainly discuss?
A. How the principles of use and disuse change people's concepts of themselves.

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 50.
The principle of use and disuse states that those parts of organisms' bodies that are used grown larger. Those parts that are
not tend to wither away. It is an observed fact that when you exercise particular muscles, they grow. Those that are never
used diminish. By examining a man's body, we can tell which muscles he uses and which he doesn't, we may even be able to
guess his profession or his reaction. Enthusiasts of the "body-building" cult make use of the principle of use and disuse to
"build" their bodies, almost like a piece of sculpture, into whatever unnatural shape is demanded by fashion in this peculiar
minority culture. Muscles are not the only parts of the body that respond to use in this kind of way. Walk barefoot and you
acquire harder skin on your soles. It is easy to tell a farmer from a bank teller by looking at their hands alone. The farmer's
hands are homy, hardened by long exposure to rough work. The teller's hands are relatively soft.
The principle of use and disuse enables animals to become better at the job of surviving in their world, progressively better
during their lifetime as a resultof living in that world. Humans, through direct exposure to sunlight, or lack of it, develop a
skin color which equips them better to survive in the particular local conditions.
Too much sunlight is dangerous. Enthusiastic sunbathers with very fair skins are susceptible to skin cancer. Too little
sunlight, on the other hand, leads to vitamin-D deficiency and rickets. The brown pigment melanin which is synthesized
under the influence of sunlight, makes a screen to protect the underlying tissues from the harmful effects of further sunlight.
If a sun-tanned person moves to a less sunny climate, the melanin disappears, and the body is able to benefit from what little
sun there is. This can be represented as an instance of the principle of use and disuse: skin goes brown when it is "used", and
fades to white when it is not.

A. of doubtful benefits
B. as an artistic from
