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 01 to 07.
One of the highest honours for journalists, writers, and musical composers is the Pulitzer Prize. First awarded in 1927, the
Pulitzer Prize has been won by Ernest Hemingway, Harper Lee, John F. Kennedy, and Rodgers and Hammerstein, among
others. As with many famous awards, this prize was named after its founder, Joseph Pulitzer.
Joseph Pulitzer's story, like that of many immigrants to the United States, is one of hardship, hard work and triumph. Born in
Hungary, Joseph Pulitzer moved to United States in 1864. He wanted to be a reporter, but he started his American life by
fighting in the American Civil War. After the war, Pulitzer worked for the German-language newspaper, the Westliche Post.

His skills as a reporter were wonderful, and he soon became a partial owner of the paper.
In 1878, Pulitzer was able to start a newspaper of his own. Right from the first edition, the newspaper took a controversial
approach to news. Pulitzer wanted to appeal to the average reader, so he produced exciting stories of scandal and intrigue.
Such an approach is commonplace today, but in Pulitzer's time it was new and different. The approach led to the discovery of
many instances of corruption by influential people. Pulitzer paper became very famous and is still produced today.
The success of Joseph Pulitzer's newspaper made him a very wealthy man, so he wanted to give something back to his
profession. Throughout his later years, he worked to establish university programs for the teaching of journalism, and he
funded numerous scholarships to assist journalism students. Finally, he wanted to leave a legacy that would encourage writers
to remember the importance of quality. On his death, he gave two million dollars to Columbia University so they could award
prizes to great writers.

One of the highest honours for journalists, writers, and musical composers is the Pulitzer Prize. First awarded in 1927, the
Pulitzer Prize has been won by Ernest Hemingway, Harper Lee, John F. Kennedy, and Rodgers and Hammerstein, among
others. As with many famous awards, this prize was named after its founder, Joseph Pulitzer.

Hungary, Joseph Pulitzer moved to United States in 1864. He wanted to be a reporter, but he started his American life by
fighting in the American Civil War. After the war, Pulitzer worked for the German-language newspaper, the Westliche Post.
His skills as a reporter were wonderful, and he soon became a partial owner of the paper.
In 1878, Pulitzer was able to start a newspaper of his own. Right from the first edition, the newspaper took a controversial
approach to news. Pulitzer wanted to appeal to the average reader, so he produced exciting stories of scandal and intrigue.

profession. Throughout his later years, he worked to establish university programs for the teaching of journalism, and he
funded numerous scholarships to assist journalism students. Finally, he wanted to leave a legacy that would encourage writers
to remember the importance of quality. On his death, he gave two million dollars to Columbia University so they could award

from her father. Another event that influenced her decision to help soldiers was an accident her brother had. His injuries were

she returned to the United States, she worked very hard to create an American Red Cross. She talked to government leaders
and let American people know about the Red Cross. In 1881, the National Society of the Red Cross was finally established
with its headquarters in Washington, D. C. Clara Barton managed its activities for 23 years. Barton never let her age stop her

One of the highest honours for journalists, writers, and musical composers in the Pulitzer Prize. First awarded in 1917, the
Pulitzer Prize has been won by Ernest Hemingway, Harper Lee, John F. Kennedy, and Rodgers and Hammerstein, among
others. As with many famous awards, this prize was named after its founder, Joseph Pulitzer. Joseph Pulitzer's story, like that
of many immigrants to the United States, is one of hardship, hard work, and triumph. Born in Hungary, Joseph Pulitzer
moved to the United States in 1864. He wanted to be a reporter, but he started his American life by fighting in the American
Civil War. After the war, Pulitzer worked for the German-language newspaper, the Westliche Post. His skills as a reporter
were wonderful, and he soon became a partial owner of the paper.
In 1878, Pulitzer was able to start a newspaper of his own. Right from the first edition, the newspaper took a controversial
approach to news. Pulitzer wanted to appeal to the average reader, so he produced exciting stories of scandal and intrigue.
Such an approach is commonplace today, but in Putlizer's time it was new and different. The approach led to the discovery of
many instances of corruption by influential people. Pulitzer's paper became very famous and is still produced today.
The success of Joseph Pulitzer's newspaper made him a very wealthy man, so he wanted to give something back to his
profession. Throughout his later years, he worked to establish university programs for the teaching of journalism, and he
funded numerous scholarships to assist journalism students. Finally, he wanted to leave a legacy that would encourage writers
to remember the importance of quality. On his death, he gave two milllion dollars to Columbia University so they could

One of the highest honours for journalists, writers, and musical composers in the Pulitzer Prize. First awarded in 1917, the
Pulitzer Prize has been won by Ernest Hemingway, Harper Lee, John F. Kennedy, and Rodgers and Hammerstein, among
others. As with many famous awards, this prize was named after its founder, Joseph Pulitzer. Joseph Pulitzer's story, like that
of many immigrants to the United States, is one of hardship, hard work, and triumph. Born in Hungary, Joseph Pulitzer
moved to the United States in 1864. He wanted to be a reporter, but he started his American life by fighting in the American
Civil War. After the war, Pulitzer worked for the German-language newspaper, the Westliche Post. His skills as a reporter
were wonderful, and he soon became a partial owner of the paper.
In 1878, Pulitzer was able to start a newspaper of his own. Right from the first edition, the newspaper took a controversial
approach to news. Pulitzer wanted to appeal to the average reader, so he produced exciting stories of scandal and intrigue.
Such an approach is commonplace today, but in Putlizer's time it was new and different. The approach led to the discovery of
many instances of corruption by influential people. Pulitzer's paper became very famous and is still produced today.
The success of Joseph Pulitzer's newspaper made him a very wealthy man, so he wanted to give something back to his
profession. Throughout his later years, he worked to establish university programs for the teaching of journalism, and he
funded numerous scholarships to assist journalism students. Finally, he wanted to leave a legacy that would encourage writers
