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 36 to 43.
Ever since humans inhabited the earth, they have made use of various forms of communication. Generally, this expression
of thoughts and feelings has been in the form of oral speech. When there is a barrier, communication is accomplished through
2


sign language in which motions stand for letters, words, and ideas. Tourists, the deaf, and the mute have had to resort to this
form of expression. Many of these symbols of whole words are very picturesque and exact and can be used internationally;
spelling, however, cannot.
Body language transmits ideas or thoughts by certain actions, either intentionally or unintentionally. A wink can be a way
of flirting or indicating that the party is only joking. A nod signifies approval, while shaking the head indicates a negative
reaction.
Other forms of non-linguistic language can be found in Braille (a system of raised dots read with the fingertips), signal
flags, Morse code, and smoke signals. Road maps and picture signs also guide, warn, and instruct people.
While verbalization is the most common form of language, other systems and techniques also express human thoughts and
feelings.

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 44 to 50.
The technology of the North American colonies did not differ strikingly from that of Europe, but in one respect, the
colonists enjoyed a great advantage. Especially by comparison with Britain, Americans had a wonderfully supply of wood.
The first colonists did not, as many people imagine, find an entire continent covered by a climax forest. Even along the
Atlantic seaboard, the forest was broken at many points. Nevertheless, all sorts of fine trees abounded, and through the early
colonial period, those who pushed westward encountered new forests. By the end of the colonial era, the price of wood had
risen slightly in eastern cities, but wood was still extremely abundant.
The availability of wood brought advantages that have seldom been appreciated. Wood was a foundation of the economy.
Houses and all manner of buildings were made of wood to a degree unknown in Britain. Secondly, wood was used as fuel for
heating and cooking. Thirdly, it was used as the source of important industrial compounds, such as potash, an industrial
alkali; charcoal, a componentof gunpowder; and tannic acid, used for tanning leather.
The supply of wood conferred advantages but had some negative aspects as well. Iron at that time was produced by heating
iron ore with charcoal. Because Britain was so stripped of trees, she was unable to exploit her rich iron mines. But the
American colonies had both iron ore and wood; iron production was encouraged and became successful. However, when
Britain developed coke smelting, the Colonies did not follow suit because they had plenty of wood and besides, charcoal iron
was stronger than coke iron. Coke smelting led to technologic innovations and was linked to the emergence of the Industrial
Revolution. In the early nineteenth century, the former colonies lagged behind Britain in industrial development because their
supply of wood led them to cling to charcoal iron.
Question 44: What does the passage mainly discuss?
A. The roots of the Industrial Revolution
B. The effects of an abundance of wood on the colonies
C. The advantages of using wood in the colonies
D. The difference between charcoal iron and coke iron
Question 45: According to the passage, by the end of the colonial period, the price of wood in Eastern cities.......
A. was much higher than it was in Britain.
B. decreased rapidly because of lower demand for wood.
3


C. rose quickly because wood was becoming so scarce.
D. was slightly higher than in previous years.
Question 46: According to the passage, why was the use of coke smelting advantageous?
A. It produced a stronger type of iron than wood smelting. B. It was less expensive than wood smelting.
C. It stimulated the demand for wood.
D. It led to advances in technology.
Question 47: The word "abundant" in paragraph 3 is closest meaning to.....
A. insufficient
B. plentiful
C. sufficient
D. redundant
Question 48: Which of the following is a common assumption about the forests of North America during the colonial
period?
A. They existed only along the Atlantic seaboard.
B. They covered the entire continent.
C. They had little or no economic value.
D. They contained only a few types of trees.
Question 49: What can be inferred about houses in Britain during the period written about in the passage?
A. They were typically smaller than homes in North America.
B. They were generally built with imported materials.
C. They were usually built from materials built from materials other than wood.
D. They were more expensive than American houses.
Question 50: The phrase “follow suit” in paragraph 4 means.......
A. make an attempt
B. take a risk
C. have the opportunity
D. do the same thing

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 24 to 30.
The technology of the North American colonies did not differ strikingly from that of Europe, but in one respect, the
colonists enjoyed a great advantage. Especially by comparison with Britain, Americans had a wonderfully supply of wood.
The first colonists did not, as many people imagine, find an entire continent covered by a climax forest. Even along the
Atlantic seaboard, the forest was broken at many points. Nevertheless, all sorts of fine trees abounded, and through the early
colonial period, those who pushed westward encountered new forests. By the end of the colonial era, the price of wood had
risen slightly in eastern cities, but wood was still extremely abundant.
The availability of wood brought advantages that have seldom been appreciated. Wood was a foundation of the economy.
Houses and all manner of buildings were made of wood to a degree unknown in Britain. Secondly, wood was used as fuel for
heating and cooking. Thirdly, it was used as the source of important industrial compounds, such as potash, an industrial
alkali; charcoal, a componentof gunpowder; and tannic acid, used for tanning leather.
The supply of wood conferred advantages but had some negative aspects as well. Iron at that time was produced by heating
iron ore with charcoal. Because Britain was so stripped of trees, she was unable to exploit her rich iron mines. But the
American colonies had both iron ore and wood; iron production was encouraged and became successful. However, when
Britain developed coke smelting, the Colonies did not follow suit because they had plenty of wood and besides, charcoal iron
was stronger than coke iron. Coke smelting led to technologic innovations and was linked to the emergence of the Industrial
Revolution. In the early nineteenth century, the former colonies lagged behind Britain in industrial development because their
supply of wood led them to cling to charcoal iron.
Question 24: The phrase “follow suit” in paragraph 4 means.......
A. take a risk
B. have the opportunity
C. do the same thing
D. make an attempt
Question 25: Which of the following is a common assumption about the forests of North America during the colonial
period?
A. They contained only a few types of trees.
B. They had little or no economic value.
C. They existed only along the Atlantic seaboard.
D. They covered the entire continent.
Question 26: According to the passage, why was the use of coke smelting advantageous?
A. It stimulated the demand for wood.
B. It was less expensive than wood smelting.
C. It produced a stronger type of iron than wood smelting. D. It led to advances in technology.
Question 27: What does the passage mainly discuss?
A. The effects of an abundance of wood on the colonies
B. The difference between charcoal iron and coke iron
C. The advantages of using wood in the colonies
D. The roots of the Industrial Revolution
Question 28: What can be inferred about houses in Britain during the period written about in the passage?
A. They were more expensive than American houses.
B. They were generally built with imported materials.
C. They were usually built from materials built from materials other than wood.
D. They were typically smaller than homes in North America.
Question 29: The word "abundant" in paragraph 3 is closest meaning to.....
A. redundant
B. insufficient
C. plentiful
D. sufficient
Question 30: According to the passage, by the end of the colonial period, the price of wood in Eastern cities.......
A. was slightly higher than in previous years.
B. was much higher than it was in Britain.
C. rose quickly because wood was becoming so scarce.

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.
Ever since humans inhabited the earth, they have made use of various forms of communication. Generally, this expression
of thoughts and feelings has been in the form of oral speech. When there is a barrier, communication is accomplished through
sign language in which motions stand for letters, words, and ideas. Tourists, the deaf, and the mute have had to resort to this
form of expression. Many of these symbols of whole words are very picturesque and exact and can be used internationally;
spelling, however, cannot.
Body language transmits ideas or thoughts by certain actions, either intentionally or unintentionally. A wink can be a way
of flirting or indicating that the party is only joking. A nod signifies approval, while shaking the head indicates a negative
reaction.
Other forms of non-linguistic language can be found in Braille (a system of raised dots read with the fingertips), signal
flags, Morse code, and smoke signals. Road maps and picture signs also guide, warn, and instruct people.
While verbalization is the most common form of language, other systems and techniques also express human thoughts and
feelings.

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 25 to 31.
The technology of the North American colonies did not differ strikingly from that of Europe, but in one respect, the
colonists enjoyed a great advantage. Especially by comparison with Britain, Americans had a wonderfully supply of wood.
The first colonists did not, as many people imagine, find an entire continent covered by a climax forest. Even along the
Atlantic seaboard, the forest was broken at many points. Nevertheless, all sorts of fine trees abounded, and through the early
colonial period, those who pushed westward encountered new forests. By the end of the colonial era, the price of wood had
risen slightly in eastern cities, but wood was still extremely abundant.
The availability of wood brought advantages that have seldom been appreciated. Wood was a foundation of the economy.
Houses and all manner of buildings were made of wood to a degree unknown in Britain. Secondly, wood was used as fuel for
heating and cooking. Thirdly, it was used as the source of important industrial compounds, such as potash, an industrial
alkali; charcoal, a componentof gunpowder; and tannic acid, used for tanning leather.
The supply of wood conferred advantages but had some negative aspects as well. Iron at that time was produced by heating
iron ore with charcoal. Because Britain was so stripped of trees, she was unable to exploit her rich iron mines. But the
American colonies had both iron ore and wood; iron production was encouraged and became successful. However, when
Britain developed coke smelting, the Colonies did not follow suit because they had plenty of wood and besides, charcoal iron
was stronger than coke iron. Coke smelting led to technologic innovations and was linked to the emergence of the Industrial
Revolution. In the early nineteenth century, the former colonies lagged behind Britain in industrial development because their
supply of wood led them to cling to charcoal iron.

B. The effects of an abundance of wood on the colonies
C. The difference between charcoal iron and coke iron

Question 28: What can be inferred about houses in Britain during the period written about in the passage?
A. They were usually built from materials built from materials other than wood.
B. They were generally built with imported materials.
C. They were typically smaller than homes in North America.
D. They were more expensive than American houses.
Question 29: According to the passage, by the end of the colonial period, the price of wood in Eastern cities.......
A. was slightly higher than in previous years.
B. was much higher than it was in Britain.

each of the questions from 43 to 50.
Ever since humans inhabited the earth, they have made use of various forms of communication. Generally, this expression
of thoughts and feelings has been in the form of oral speech. When there is a barrier, communication is accomplished through
sign language in which motions stand for letters, words, and ideas. Tourists, the deaf, and the mute have had to resort to this
form of expression. Many of these symbols of whole words are very picturesque and exact and can be used internationally;
spelling, however, cannot.
Body language transmits ideas or thoughts by certain actions, either intentionally or unintentionally. A wink can be a way
of flirting or indicating that the party is only joking. A nod signifies approval, while shaking the head indicates a negative
reaction.
Other forms of non-linguistic language can be found in Braille (a system of raised dots read with the fingertips), signal
flags, Morse code, and smoke signals. Road maps and picture signs also guide, warn, and instruct people.
While verbalization is the most common form of language, other systems and techniques also express human thoughts and
feelings.

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 09.
The technology of the North American colonies did not differ strikingly from that of Europe, but in one respect, the
colonists enjoyed a great advantage. Especially by comparison with Britain, Americans had a wonderfully supply of wood.
The first colonists did not, as many people imagine, find an entire continent covered by a climax forest. Even along the
Atlantic seaboard, the forest was broken at many points. Nevertheless, all sorts of fine trees abounded, and through the early
colonial period, those who pushed westward encountered new forests. By the end of the colonial era, the price of wood had
risen slightly in eastern cities, but wood was still extremely abundant.
The availability of wood brought advantages that have seldom been appreciated. Wood was a foundation of the economy.
Houses and all manner of buildings were made of wood to a degree unknown in Britain. Secondly, wood was used as fuel for
heating and cooking. Thirdly, it was used as the source of important industrial compounds, such as potash, an industrial
alkali; charcoal, a componentof gunpowder; and tannic acid, used for tanning leather.
The supply of wood conferred advantages but had some negative aspects as well. Iron at that time was produced by heating
iron ore with charcoal. Because Britain was so stripped of trees, she was unable to exploit her rich iron mines. But the
American colonies had both iron ore and wood; iron production was encouraged and became successful. However, when
Britain developed coke smelting, the Colonies did not follow suit because they had plenty of wood and besides, charcoal iron
was stronger than coke iron. Coke smelting led to technologic innovations and was linked to the emergence of the Industrial
Revolution. In the early nineteenth century, the former colonies lagged behind Britain in industrial development because their
supply of wood led them to cling to charcoal iron.
Question 3: What does the passage mainly discuss?
A. The effects of an abundance of wood on the colonies
B. The difference between charcoal iron and coke iron
C. The roots of the Industrial Revolution

D. was slightly higher than in previous years.
Question 5: The word "abundant" in paragraph 3 is closest meaning to.....
A. redundant
B. sufficient
C. insufficient
D. plentiful
Question 6: What can be inferred about houses in Britain during the period written about in the passage?
A. They were generally built with imported materials.
B. They were usually built from materials built from materials other than wood.
C. They were typically smaller than homes in North America.
D. They were more expensive than American houses.
Question 7: The phrase “follow suit” in paragraph 4 means.......
A. make an attempt
B. do the same thing
C. take a risk
D. have the opportunity

A. It led to advances in technology.
B. It stimulated the demand for wood.
