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 31 to 37.
The Earth comprises three principal layers: the dense, iron-rich core, the mantle made of silicate rocks that are semimolten
at depth, and the thin, solid-surface crust. There are two kinds of crust, a lower and denser oceanic dust and an upper, lighter
continental crust found over only about 40 percent of the Earth's surface. The rocks of the crust are of very different ages.
Some continental rocks are over 3,000 million years old, while those of the ocean floor are less than 200 million years old.
The crusts and the top, solid part of the mantle, totaling about 70 to 100 kilometres in thickness, at present appear to consist
of about 15 rigid plates, 7 of which are very large. These plates move over the semimolten lower mantle to produce all of the
major topographical features of the Earth. Active zones where intense deformation occurs are confined to the narrow,
interconnecting boundaries of contact of the plates.
There are three main types of zones of contact: spreading contacts where plates move apart, converging contacts where
plates move towards each other, and transforming contacts where plates slide past each other. New oceanic crust is formed
along one or more margins of each plate by material issuing from deeper layers of the Earth's crust, for example, by volcanic
eruptions of lava at mid-ocean ridges. If at such a spreading contact the two plates support continents, a rift is formed that will
gradually widen and become flooded by the sea. The Atlantic Ocean formed like this as the American and Afro-European
plates moved in opposite directions. At the same time a margins of converging plates, the oceanic crust is icing re-absorbed
by being subducted into the mantle and remelted beneath the ocean trenches. When two plates carrying continents collide, the
continental blocks, too light to be drawn down, continue to float and therefore buckle to form a mountain chain along the
length of the margin of the plates.
Question 31: According to the passage, mountain ranges are formed when........
A. a rift is flooded
B. the crust is remelted
C. continental plates collide
D. two plates separate

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.
Until recently, the ‘science of the future’ was supposed to be electronics and artificial intelligence. Today it seems more and
more likely that the next breakthrough in technology will be brought about through a combination of those two sciences with
organic chemistry and genetic engineering. This science is the combination of biotechnology.
Organic chemistry enables us to produce marvelous synthetic materials. However, it is still difficult to manufacture anything
that has the capacity of wool to conserve heat and also to absorb moisture. Nothing that we have been able to produce so far
comes anywhere near the combination of strength, lightness, and flexibility that we find in the bodies of ordinary insects.
Nevertheless, scientists in the laboratory have already succeeded in 'growing' a material that has many of the characteristics of
human skin. The next step may well be 'biotech heart and eyes’ which can replace diseased organs in human beings. These
will not be rejected by the body, as in the case with organs from humans.
The application of biotechnology to energy production seems even more promising. In 1996, the famous science-fiction
writer Arthur C. Clarke, many of whose previous predictions have come true, said that we may soon be able to develop
remarkably cheap and renewable sources of energy. Some of these power sources will be biological. Clarke and others have
warned us repeatedly that sooner or later we will have to give up our dependence on non-renewable power sources. Coal, oil
and gas are indeed convenient. However, using them also means creating dangerously high levels of pollution. It will be
impossible to meet the growing demand for energy without increasing that pollution to catastrophic levels unless we develop
power sources that are both cheaper and cleaner.
Question 43: According to the text, the science of the future is likely to be?
A. Electronics.
B. Genetic engineering.
C. Biotechnology
D. Nuclear technology.
Question 44: The word “These” refers to.......
A. human beings
B. characteristics of human skin
C. biotech heart and eyes D. diseased organs
Question 45: What does the text say is one of the worst problems caused by the use of coal, gas, and oil?
A. They are so cheap that people waste them.
B. They are too expensive for poorer people in many parts of the world.
C. They are very bad for the world around us.
D. They are no longer as easy to use as they once were.
Question 46: Which word below can be the best substitute for“breakthrough”?
A. exit
B. outlet
C. opening
D. development
Question 47: Organic chemistry helps to produce materials that are........
A. almost as good as woolB. not as good as natural materials
C. stronger, lighter, and better than natural materials
D. almost as strong, light, and flexible as an insect’s body
Question 48: According to the text, it may soon be possible........


A. to make useful substitutes for human hearts and eyes
B. to take an organ from one human and give it to another human
C. to cure certain diseases that damage human organs
D. to make something as good as human skin
Question 49: In 1996, Arthur C. Clarke predicted........
A. new and better ways of heating and lighting homes, offices, and factories
B. newer and better ways of using oil, gas, and coal
C. that we may not be able to meet future demand for energy
D. that using oil, gas, and coal would lead to very high levels of pollution
Question 50: The word “to meet” is synonymous with.......
A. encounter
B. appear
C. satisfy
The End

D. turn up

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 22 to 29.
Until recently, the ‘science of the future’ was supposed to be electronics and artificial intelligence. Today it seems more and
more likely that the next breakthrough in technology will be brought about through a combination of those two sciences with
organic chemistry and genetic engineering. This science is the combination of biotechnology.
Organic chemistry enables us to produce marvelous synthetic materials. However, it is still difficult to manufacture anything
that has the capacity of wool to conserve heat and also to absorb moisture. Nothing that we have been able to produce so far
comes anywhere near the combination of strength, lightness, and flexibility that we find in the bodies of ordinary insects.
Nevertheless, scientists in the laboratory have already succeeded in 'growing' a material that has many of the characteristics of
human skin. The next step may well be 'biotech heart and eyes’ which can replace diseased organs in human beings. These
will not be rejected by the body, as in the case with organs from humans.
The application of biotechnology to energy production seems even more promising. In 1996, the famous science-fiction
writer Arthur C. Clarke, many of whose previous predictions have come true, said that we may soon be able to develop
remarkably cheap and renewable sources of energy. Some of these power sources will be biological. Clarke and others have
warned us repeatedly that sooner or later we will have to give up our dependence on non-renewable power sources. Coal, oil
and gas are indeed convenient. However, using them also means creating dangerously high levels of pollution. It will be
impossible to meet the growing demand for energy without increasing that pollution to catastrophic levels unless we develop
power sources that are both cheaper and cleaner.
Question 22: Which word below can be the best substitute for“breakthrough”?
A. development
B. outlet
C. opening
D. exit
Question 23: In 1996, Arthur C. Clarke predicted........
A. newer and better ways of using oil, gas, and coal
B. new and better ways of heating and lighting homes, offices, and factories
C. that using oil, gas, and coal would lead to very high levels of pollution
D. that we may not be able to meet future demand for energy
Question 24: According to the text, it may soon be possible........
A. to take an organ from one human and give it to another human
B. to make useful substitutes for human hearts and eyes
C. to make something as good as human skin
D. to cure certain diseases that damage human organs
Question 25: Organic chemistry helps to produce materials that are........
A. almost as good as wool
B. almost as strong, light, and flexible as an insect’s body
C. not as good as natural materials
D. stronger, lighter, and better than natural materials
Question 26: What does the text say is one of the worst problems caused by the use of coal, gas, and oil?
A. They are no longer as easy to use as they once were.
B. They are so cheap that people waste them.
C. They are very bad for the world around us.
D. They are too expensive for poorer people in many parts of the world.
Question 27: The word “to meet” is synonymous with.......
A. turn up
B. satisfy
C. appear
D. encounter
Question 28: The word “These” refers to.......
A. characteristics of human skin
B. diseased organs

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 Earth comprises three principal layers: the dense, iron-rich core, the mantle made of silicate rocks that are semimolten
at depth, and the thin, solid-surface crust. There are two kinds of crust, a lower and denser oceanic dust and an upper, lighter
continental crust found over only about 40 percent of the Earth's surface. The rocks of the crust are of very different ages.
Some continental rocks are over 3,000 million years old, while those of the ocean floor are less than 200 million years old.
The crusts and the top, solid part of the mantle, totaling about 70 to 100 kilometres in thickness, at present appear to consist
of about 15 rigid plates, 7 of which are very large. These plates move over the semimolten lower mantle to produce all of the
major topographical features of the Earth. Active zones where intense deformation occurs are confined to the narrow,
interconnecting boundaries of contact of the plates.
There are three main types of zones of contact: spreading contacts where plates move apart, converging contacts where
plates move towards each other, and transforming contacts where plates slide past each other. New oceanic crust is formed
along one or more margins of each plate by material issuing from deeper layers of the Earth's crust, for example, by volcanic
eruptions of lava at mid-ocean ridges. If at such a spreading contact the two plates support continents, a rift is formed that will
gradually widen and become flooded by the sea. The Atlantic Ocean formed like this as the American and Afro-European
plates moved in opposite directions. At the same time a margins of converging plates, the oceanic crust is icing re-absorbed
by being subducted into the mantle and remelted beneath the ocean trenches. When two plates carrying continents collide, the
continental blocks, too light to be drawn down, continue to float and therefore buckle to form a mountain chain along the
length of the margin of the plates.
Question 42: According to the passage, mountain ranges are formed when........
A. continental plates collide
B. a rift is flooded
C. two plates separate
D. the crust is remelted
Question 43: We can infer from the passage that........
A. the Earth’s crust comprises three principal layers
B. a rift is formed by transforming contacts
C. continental rocks are far older than the oceanic ones
D. the Atlantic Ocean was formed by converging contacts
Question 44: The word "intense" in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to.......
A. extreme
B. sudden
C. rare
D. strong
Question 45: What does the second paragraph of the passage mainly discuss?
A. The major mountain chains of the Earth.
B. Processes that create the Earth's surface features.
C. The rates at which continents move.
D. The composition of the ocean floors.
Question 46: The word "buckle" in the last sentence is closest in meaning to........
A. reduce
B. separate
C. bend
D. sink

A. The second half of paragraph 1.
B. The first half of paragraph 1.
C. The middle of paragraph 2.

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 32 to 38.
The Earth comprises three principal layers: the dense, iron-rich core, the mantle made of silicate rocks that are semimolten
at depth, and the thin, solid-surface crust. There are two kinds of crust, a lower and denser oceanic dust and an upper, lighter
continental crust found over only about 40 percent of the Earth's surface. The rocks of the crust are of very different ages.
Some continental rocks are over 3,000 million years old, while those of the ocean floor are less than 200 million years old.
The crusts and the top, solid part of the mantle, totaling about 70 to 100 kilometres in thickness, at present appear to consist
of about 15 rigid plates, 7 of which are very large. These plates move over the semimolten lower mantle to produce all of the
major topographical features of the Earth. Active zones where intense deformation occurs are confined to the narrow,
interconnecting boundaries of contact of the plates.


There are three main types of zones of contact: spreading contacts where plates move apart, converging contacts where
plates move towards each other, and transforming contacts where plates slide past each other. New oceanic crust is formed
along one or more margins of each plate by material issuing from deeper layers of the Earth's crust, for example, by volcanic
eruptions of lava at mid-ocean ridges. If at such a spreading contact the two plates support continents, a rift is formed that will
gradually widen and become flooded by the sea. The Atlantic Ocean formed like this as the American and Afro-European
plates moved in opposite directions. At the same time a margins of converging plates, the oceanic crust is icing re-absorbed
by being subducted into the mantle and remelted beneath the ocean trenches. When two plates carrying continents collide, the
continental blocks, too light to be drawn down, continue to float and therefore buckle to form a mountain chain along the
length of the margin of the plates.
Question 32: The word "comprises" in line 1 is closest in meaning to.......
A. benefits from
B. focuses on
C. consists of
D. adapts to
Question 33: What does the second paragraph of the passage mainly discuss?
A. Processes that create the Earth's surface features.
B. The major mountain chains of the Earth.
C. The composition of the ocean floors.
D. The rates at which continents move.
Question 34: We can infer from the passage that........
A. a rift is formed by transforming contacts
B. the Atlantic Ocean was formed by converging contacts
C. continental rocks are far older than the oceanic ones
D. the Earth’s crust comprises three principal layers
Question 35: According to the passage, mountain ranges are formed when........
A. two plates separate
B. continental plates collide
C. the crust is remelted
D. a rift is flooded
Question 36: The word "buckle" in the last sentence is closest in meaning to........
A. bend
B. reduce
C. sink
D. separate
Question 37: The word "intense" in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to.......
A. sudden
B. rare
C. strong
D. extreme

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 26 to 33.
Until recently, the ‘science of the future’ was supposed to be electronics and artificial intelligence. Today it seems more and
more likely that the next breakthrough in technology will be brought about through a combination of those two sciences with
organic chemistry and genetic engineering. This science is the combination of biotechnology.
Organic chemistry enables us to produce marvelous synthetic materials. However, it is still difficult to manufacture anything
that has the capacity of wool to conserve heat and also to absorb moisture. Nothing that we have been able to produce so far
comes anywhere near the combination of strength, lightness, and flexibility that we find in the bodies of ordinary insects.
Nevertheless, scientists in the laboratory have already succeeded in 'growing' a material that has many of the characteristics of
human skin. The next step may well be 'biotech heart and eyes’ which can replace diseased organs in human beings. These
will not be rejected by the body, as in the case with organs from humans.
The application of biotechnology to energy production seems even more promising. In 1996, the famous science-fiction
writer Arthur C. Clarke, many of whose previous predictions have come true, said that we may soon be able to develop
remarkably cheap and renewable sources of energy. Some of these power sources will be biological. Clarke and others have
warned us repeatedly that sooner or later we will have to give up our dependence on non-renewable power sources. Coal, oil
and gas are indeed convenient. However, using them also means creating dangerously high levels of pollution. It will be
impossible to meet the growing demand for energy without increasing that pollution to catastrophic levels unless we develop
power sources that are both cheaper and cleaner.
Question 26: According to the text, the science of the future is likely to be?
A. Nuclear technology. B. Genetic engineering.
C. Electronics.
D. Biotechnology
Question 27: The word “to meet” is synonymous with.......
A. appear
B. satisfy
C. turn up
D. encounter
Question 28: Organic chemistry helps to produce materials that are........
A. almost as strong, light, and flexible as an insect’s body B. stronger, lighter, and better than natural materials
C. almost as good as wool
D. not as good as natural materials
Question 29: According to the text, it may soon be possible........
A. to cure certain diseases that damage human organs
B. to make useful substitutes for human hearts and eyes
C. to make something as good as human skin
D. to take an organ from one human and give it to another human
Question 30: In 1996, Arthur C. Clarke predicted........
A. new and better ways of heating and lighting homes, offices, and factories
B. that using oil, gas, and coal would lead to very high levels of pollution
C. newer and better ways of using oil, gas, and coal
D. that we may not be able to meet future demand for energy
Question 31: The word “These” refers to.......
A. biotech heart and eyes
B. diseased organs
C. characteristics of human skin
D. human beings
Question 32: What does the text say is one of the worst problems caused by the use of coal, gas, and oil?
A. They are no longer as easy to use as they once were.
B. They are very bad for the world around us.
C. They are so cheap that people waste them.
D. They are too expensive for poorer people in many parts of the world.


Question 33: Which word below can be the best substitute for“breakthrough”?
A. outlet
B. development
C. opening
D. exit
