COSMETIC SURGERY
Today, more people than ever rare choosing to go under the knife in order to enhance tlleir appearance. From cheek implants
to liposuction, men and women of all ages are flocking to surgeons who promise they can forestall the ravages ...(5)... time or
make them look more beautiful. ...(6)... subjects are as controversial as the escalating use of cosmetic surgery to reshape
perfectly functioning body parts towards some subjective aesthetic ideal. Many vehemently oppose the whole idea,
denouncing it ...(7)... an expression of society's worst impulses. Others embrace it, citing its ablity to change lives. No ...(8)...
what one's stance, it cannot be denied that cosmetic surgery (not to be confused with plastic surgery, the surgical speciality
dedicated to repairing body defects ...(9)... to birth disorders, trauma, burns and disease) is a story of continual expansion,
increased consumer demand, and growing social acceptability.
What was once the province of celeblities and the rich has trickled down the social scale and is now within the grasp of
anyone with the time and inclination. What was once kept under wraps is now discussed openly, if not braggingly.
The thing about beallty that makes it the perfect marketing concept is its elusiveness. ...(10)... when you have it, you're
constantly at risk of losing it, or at least being jostled aside by someone with more of it. Cosmetic surgery success is built on
the powerful emotions of denial and envy, not just vanity. It thrives on our refusal to accept the body we were ...(11)... with,
and our collective denial of aging. It feeds our envy of those who embody nature's most powerful but fleeting charms: youth,
strength and beauty.

BEFORE AND AFTER
Sarah and Alex are two teenagers who are not particularly happy
with the way they look. But there is help at hand in the form of a makeover!
Sarah is seventeen but she looks younger than her age and she also wears clothes with cartoon characters on them that make
her look even younger, when people were asked to judge from her appearance how old she was, the general opinion was
around thirteen!
She admits herself that she hides behind scruffy, baggy outfits that are not really suitable for her age. She hardly ever goes
out with her friends and stays at home most evenings. Her essential problem then, is that she feels worried about the fact that
she is crowing up and by the responsibilities that come with being an adult. Now, however, she realises that it’s time to look
and behave her age.
Sarah’s makeover concentrates not only on her appearance but also on how she feels about herself and her life. She has to
make some hard decisions about what changes she wants to make and what goals she’s aiming at. This process isn’t easy but
with some advice and guidance, she’s able to do it.
Hannah, a stylist, then helps Sarah to choose some sets of clothes that suit her age. Together, they throw out most of the
childish clothes she had! Now she likes her new image and she doesn’t hide behind her clothes any more. Her friends think
she’s quite a different person, both inside and out!
Alex, also seventeen, is trying to find a job in the music industry but to do this, he has to give the impression that he is
serious-m inded and can hold down a responsible job. Unfortunately, the clothes he wears and the way he speaks give a
different picture. Alex is a rapper and every other word he says is cheers’, ‘mate’ or cool’ - not the type of language you
would normally use to an employer!
Alex’s makeover consists mainly of choosing the right outfits for job interviews. Hannah replaces his previous look with a
more classic, formal style. Alex also needs practice in how to communicate with people in formal situations so, as part of the
makeover, he spends some time on the perfume counter of a large store. Here he learns more about what employers look for
when they interview young people for jobs.
Finally, in a class on interview techniques, Alex is taught how to prepare properly for an interview by doing research
beforehand. He is then interviewed for a place on a music production course at college and he gets in! He still dresses as he
likes though - in his spare time - and still ‘raps’ with his mates!

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 42.
There are many different types of places to eat. One important question is who uses different places and how often they go.
As sociologists we are initially very interested in the social and cultural characteristics of people who behave differently. Such
characteristics indicate the financial, social, practical and cultural forces systematically distributed across the population,
which constrain or encourage people to engage in particular ways of eating out.
We asked respondents how often they ate out under different circumstances. Excluding holidays and eating at the workplace,
on average the respondents to the survey ate a main meal out on commercial premises about once every three weeks. Twentyone per cent ate out at least once a week, a further forty-four per cent at least monthly and only seven per cent claimed never
to eat out. Mean frequency of eating at someone else's home was about the same, but a much larger proportion (twenty per
cent) never did so. Twenty per cent of respondents claimed never to eat in the home of other family members, and about onethird never at the home of friends.
Very regular eating out with either kin or friends was not very prevalent, but being a guest at a main meal in someone else's
home is part of the life experience of a large majority of the population. There is a strong positive association between being a
guest of friends, guest of family and commercial eating out. Opportunities to eat out are cumulative, particularly eating out
commercially and with friends.
To be seen in the right places and in attractive company, or at least to let others know that we are familiar with the most
exciting or rewarding of experiences, is part of a process of display and performance which contributes to reputation. Early
sociologists examining consumption were particularly interested in the claiming and attributing of status through exhibitions
of a prestigious style of life. They were particularly concerned with the ways in which individuals established reputations for
refinement, superiority and distinction.
Consumption patterns reflected social standing, and particularly class position. Eating out is a potential means for such
display through the use and avoidance of different venues.
[Source: Objective CAE, Felicity O’Dell &…, Cambridge, 2010]

Question 36: What interests sociologists about the topic of eating out?
A. The characteristics of people who choose to eat out.
B. The types of places that people choose to eat out in.
C. The frequency with which people eat out with friends.
D. The changes over time in patterns of eating out.
Question 37: Which of these statements is true, according to the text?
A. People eat out more frequently at someone else's home than in a restaurant.
B. People are more likely to eatout at the home of another family member than at a friend’s house.
C. People are more likely to eat out at a friend's house than at the home of another family member.
D. People eat out less frequently at someone else’s home than in a restaurant.
Question 38: What do you think the text will consider next?
A. The relationship between cost and restaurant popularity
B. The reasons for the popularity of particular restaurants.
C. How tastes in restaurants differ over time.
D. The relationship between class and type of restaurant preferred.
Question 39: The best title for this extract would be........
A. 21st century eating.

There are many different types of places to eat. One important question is who uses different places and how often they go.
As sociologists we are initially very interested in the social and cultural characteristics of people who behave differently. Such
characteristics indicate the financial, social, practical and cultural forces systematically distributed across the population,
which constrain or encourage people to engage in particular ways of eating out.
We asked respondents how often they ate out under different circumstances. Excluding holidays and eating at the workplace,
on average the respondents to the survey ate a main meal out on commercial premises about once every three weeks. Twentyone per cent ate out at least once a week, a further forty-four per cent at least monthly and only seven per cent claimed never
to eat out. Mean frequency of eating at someone else's home was about the same, but a much larger proportion (twenty per
cent) never did so. Twenty per cent of respondents claimed never to eat in the home of other family members, and about onethird never at the home of friends.
Very regular eating out with either kin or friends was not very prevalent, but being a guest at a main meal in someone else's
home is part of the life experience of a large majority of the population. There is a strong positive association between being a
guest of friends, guest of family and commercial eating out. Opportunities to eat out are cumulative, particularly eating out
commercially and with friends.
To be seen in the right places and in attractive company, or at least to let others know that we are familiar with the most
exciting or rewarding of experiences, is part of a process of display and performance which contributes to reputation. Early
sociologists examining consumption were particularly interested in the claiming and attributing of status through exhibitions
of a prestigious style of life. They were particularly concerned with the ways in which individuals established reputations for
refinement, superiority and distinction.
Consumption patterns reflected social standing, and particularly class position. Eating out is a potential means for such
display through the use and avoidance of different venues.

A. The reasons for the popularity of particular restaurants.
B. The relationship between class and type of restaurant preferred.
C. How tastes in restaurants differ over time.
D. The relationship between cost and restaurant popularity

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 28 to 33.
BEFORE AND AFTER
Sarah and Alex are two teenagers who are not particularly happy
with the way they look. But there is help at hand in the form of a makeover!
Sarah is seventeen but she looks younger than her age and she also wears clothes with cartoon characters on them that make
her look even younger, when people were asked to judge from her appearance how old she was, the general opinion was
around thirteen!
She admits herself that she hides behind scruffy, baggy outfits that are not really suitable for her age. She hardly ever goes
out with her friends and stays at home most evenings. Her essential problem then, is that she feels worried about the fact that
she is crowing up and by the responsibilities that come with being an adult. Now, however, she realises that it’s time to look
and behave her age.
Sarah’s makeover concentrates not only on her appearance but also on how she feels about herself and her life. She has to
make some hard decisions about what changes she wants to make and what goals she’s aiming at. This process isn’t easy but
with some advice and guidance, she’s able to do it.
Hannah, a stylist, then helps Sarah to choose some sets of clothes that suit her age. Together, they throw out most of the
childish clothes she had! Now she likes her new image and she doesn’t hide behind her clothes any more. Her friends think
she’s quite a different person, both inside and out!
Alex, also seventeen, is trying to find a job in the music industry but to do this, he has to give the impression that he is
serious-m inded and can hold down a responsible job. Unfortunately, the clothes he wears and the way he speaks give a
different picture. Alex is a rapper and every other word he says is cheers’, ‘mate’ or cool’ - not the type of language you
would normally use to an employer!
Alex’s makeover consists mainly of choosing the right outfits for job interviews. Hannah replaces his previous look with a
more classic, formal style. Alex also needs practice in how to communicate with people in formal situations so, as part of the
makeover, he spends some time on the perfume counter of a large store. Here he learns more about what employers look for
when they interview young people for jobs.
Finally, in a class on interview techniques, Alex is taught how to prepare properly for an interview by doing research
beforehand. He is then interviewed for a place on a music production course at college and he gets in! He still dresses as he
likes though - in his spare time - and still ‘raps’ with his mates!

A. She didn't have much idea about fashion.
B. She didn't want to go out with her friends.

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 37 to 43.
There are many different types of places to eat. One important question is who uses different places and how often they go.
As sociologists we are initially very interested in the social and cultural characteristics of people who behave differently. Such
characteristics indicate the financial, social, practical and cultural forces systematically distributed across the population,
which constrain or encourage people to engage in particular ways of eating out.
We asked respondents how often they ate out under different circumstances. Excluding holidays and eating at the workplace,
on average the respondents to the survey ate a main meal out on commercial premises about once every three weeks. Twentyone per cent ate out at least once a week, a further forty-four per cent at least monthly and only seven per cent claimed never
to eat out. Mean frequency of eating at someone else's home was about the same, but a much larger proportion (twenty per
cent) never did so. Twenty per cent of respondents claimed never to eat in the home of other family members, and about onethird never at the home of friends.
Very regular eating out with either kin or friends was not very prevalent, but being a guest at a main meal in someone else's
home is part of the life experience of a large majority of the population. There is a strong positive association between being a
guest of friends, guest of family and commercial eating out. Opportunities to eat out are cumulative, particularly eating out
commercially and with friends.
To be seen in the right places and in attractive company, or at least to let others know that we are familiar with the most
exciting or rewarding of experiences, is part of a process of display and performance which contributes to reputation. Early
sociologists examining consumption were particularly interested in the claiming and attributing of status through exhibitions
of a prestigious style of life. They were particularly concerned with the ways in which individuals established reputations for
refinement, superiority and distinction.
Consumption patterns reflected social standing, and particularly class position. Eating out is a potential means for such
display through the use and avoidance of different venues.

make some hard decisions about what changes she wants to make and what goals she’s aiming at. This process isn’t easy but
with some advice and guidance, she’s able to do it.
Hannah, a stylist, then helps Sarah to choose some sets of clothes that suit her age. Together, they throw out most of the
childish clothes she had! Now she likes her new image and she doesn’t hide behind her clothes any more. Her friends think
she’s quite a different person, both inside and out!
Alex, also seventeen, is trying to find a job in the music industry but to do this, he has to give the impression that he is
serious-m inded and can hold down a responsible job. Unfortunately, the clothes he wears and the way he speaks give a
different picture. Alex is a rapper and every other word he says is cheers’, ‘mate’ or cool’ - not the type of language you
would normally use to an employer!
Alex’s makeover consists mainly of choosing the right outfits for job interviews. Hannah replaces his previous look with a
more classic, formal style. Alex also needs practice in how to communicate with people in formal situations so, as part of the
makeover, he spends some time on the perfume counter of a large store. Here he learns more about what employers look for
when they interview young people for jobs.
Finally, in a class on interview techniques, Alex is taught how to prepare properly for an interview by doing research
beforehand. He is then interviewed for a place on a music production course at college and he gets in! He still dresses as he
likes though - in his spare time - and still ‘raps’ with his mates!

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 37 to 43.
There are many different types of places to eat. One important question is who uses different places and how often they go.
As sociologists we are initially very interested in the social and cultural characteristics of people who behave differently. Such
characteristics indicate the financial, social, practical and cultural forces systematically distributed across the population,
which constrain or encourage people to engage in particular ways of eating out.
We asked respondents how often they ate out under different circumstances. Excluding holidays and eating at the workplace,
on average the respondents to the survey ate a main meal out on commercial premises about once every three weeks. Twentyone per cent ate out at least once a week, a further forty-four per cent at least monthly and only seven per cent claimed never
to eat out. Mean frequency of eating at someone else's home was about the same, but a much larger proportion (twenty per
cent) never did so. Twenty per cent of respondents claimed never to eat in the home of other family members, and about onethird never at the home of friends.
Very regular eating out with either kin or friends was not very prevalent, but being a guest at a main meal in someone else's
home is part of the life experience of a large majority of the population. There is a strong positive association between being a
guest of friends, guest of family and commercial eating out. Opportunities to eat out are cumulative, particularly eating out
commercially and with friends.
To be seen in the right places and in attractive company, or at least to let others know that we are familiar with the most
exciting or rewarding of experiences, is part of a process of display and performance which contributes to reputation. Early
sociologists examining consumption were particularly interested in the claiming and attributing of status through exhibitions
of a prestigious style of life. They were particularly concerned with the ways in which individuals established reputations for
refinement, superiority and distinction.
Consumption patterns reflected social standing, and particularly class position. Eating out is a potential means for such
display through the use and avoidance of different venues.

BEFORE AND AFTER
Sarah and Alex are two teenagers who are not particularly happy
with the way they look. But there is help at hand in the form of a makeover!
Sarah is seventeen but she looks younger than her age and she also wears clothes with cartoon characters on them that make
her look even younger, when people were asked to judge from her appearance how old she was, the general opinion was
around thirteen!
She admits herself that she hides behind scruffy, baggy outfits that are not really suitable for her age. She hardly ever goes
out with her friends and stays at home most evenings. Her essential problem then, is that she feels worried about the fact that
she is crowing up and by the responsibilities that come with being an adult. Now, however, she realises that it’s time to look
and behave her age.
Sarah’s makeover concentrates not only on her appearance but also on how she feels about herself and her life. She has to
make some hard decisions about what changes she wants to make and what goals she’s aiming at. This process isn’t easy but
with some advice and guidance, she’s able to do it.


Hannah, a stylist, then helps Sarah to choose some sets of clothes that suit her age. Together, they throw out most of the
childish clothes she had! Now she likes her new image and she doesn’t hide behind her clothes any more. Her friends think
she’s quite a different person, both inside and out!
Alex, also seventeen, is trying to find a job in the music industry but to do this, he has to give the impression that he is
serious-m inded and can hold down a responsible job. Unfortunately, the clothes he wears and the way he speaks give a
different picture. Alex is a rapper and every other word he says is cheers’, ‘mate’ or cool’ - not the type of language you
would normally use to an employer!
Alex’s makeover consists mainly of choosing the right outfits for job interviews. Hannah replaces his previous look with a
more classic, formal style. Alex also needs practice in how to communicate with people in formal situations so, as part of the
makeover, he spends some time on the perfume counter of a large store. Here he learns more about what employers look for

COSMETIC SURGERY
Today, more people than ever rare choosing to go under the knife in order to enhance tlleir appearance. From cheek implants
to liposuction, men and women of all ages are flocking to surgeons who promise they can forestall the ravages ...(27)... time
or make them look more beautiful. ...(28)... subjects are as controversial as the escalating use of cosmetic surgery to reshape
perfectly functioning body parts towards some subjective aesthetic ideal. Many vehemently oppose the whole idea,
denouncing it ...(29)... an expression of society's worst impulses. Others embrace it, citing its ablity to change lives. No ...
(30)... what one's stance, it cannot be denied that cosmetic surgery (not to be confused with plastic surgery, the surgical
speciality dedicated to repairing body defects ...(31)... to birth disorders, trauma, burns and disease) is a story of continual
expansion, increased consumer demand, and growing social acceptability.
What was once the province of celeblities and the rich has trickled down the social scale and is now within the grasp of
anyone with the time and inclination. What was once kept under wraps is now discussed openly, if not braggingly.
The thing about beallty that makes it the perfect marketing concept is its elusiveness. ...(32)... when you have it, you're
constantly at risk of losing it, or at least being jostled aside by someone with more of it. Cosmetic surgery success is built on
the powerful emotions of denial and envy, not just vanity. It thrives on our refusal to accept the body we were ...(33)... with,
and our collective denial of aging. It feeds our envy of those who embody nature's most powerful but fleeting charms: youth,
strength and beauty.

guest of friends, guest of family and commercial eating out. Opportunities to eat out are cumulative, particularly eating out
commercially and with friends.
To be seen in the right places and in attractive company, or at least to let others know that we are familiar with the most
exciting or rewarding of experiences, is part of a process of display and performance which contributes to reputation. Early
sociologists examining consumption were particularly interested in the claiming and attributing of status through exhibitions
of a prestigious style of life. They were particularly concerned with the ways in which individuals established reputations for
refinement, superiority and distinction.
Consumption patterns reflected social standing, and particularly class position. Eating out is a potential means for such
display through the use and avoidance of different venues.

BEFORE AND AFTER
Sarah and Alex are two teenagers who are not particularly happy
with the way they look. But there is help at hand in the form of a makeover!
Sarah is seventeen but she looks younger than her age and she also wears clothes with cartoon characters on them that make
her look even younger, when people were asked to judge from her appearance how old she was, the general opinion was
around thirteen!
She admits herself that she hides behind scruffy, baggy outfits that are not really suitable for her age. She hardly ever goes
out with her friends and stays at home most evenings. Her essential problem then, is that she feels worried about the fact that
she is crowing up and by the responsibilities that come with being an adult. Now, however, she realises that it’s time to look
and behave her age.
Sarah’s makeover concentrates not only on her appearance but also on how she feels about herself and her life. She has to
make some hard decisions about what changes she wants to make and what goals she’s aiming at. This process isn’t easy but
with some advice and guidance, she’s able to do it.
Hannah, a stylist, then helps Sarah to choose some sets of clothes that suit her age. Together, they throw out most of the
childish clothes she had! Now she likes her new image and she doesn’t hide behind her clothes any more. Her friends think
she’s quite a different person, both inside and out!
Alex, also seventeen, is trying to find a job in the music industry but to do this, he has to give the impression that he is
serious-m inded and can hold down a responsible job. Unfortunately, the clothes he wears and the way he speaks give a


different picture. Alex is a rapper and every other word he says is cheers’, ‘mate’ or cool’ - not the type of language you
would normally use to an employer!
Alex’s makeover consists mainly of choosing the right outfits for job interviews. Hannah replaces his previous look with a
more classic, formal style. Alex also needs practice in how to communicate with people in formal situations so, as part of the
makeover, he spends some time on the perfume counter of a large store. Here he learns more about what employers look for
when they interview young people for jobs.
Finally, in a class on interview techniques, Alex is taught how to prepare properly for an interview by doing research
beforehand. He is then interviewed for a place on a music production course at college and he gets in! He still dresses as he
likes though - in his spare time - and still ‘raps’ with his mates!
