II. 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.
Pollution is a threat to many species on Earth, but sometimes it can cause species to thrive. Such is the case with Pfiesteria
piscicida. A one-celled creature called a dinoflagellate, Pfiesteria inhabits warm coastal areas and river mouths, especially
along the eastern United States. Although scientists have found evidence of Pfiesteria in 3,000-year-old sea floor sediments
and dinoflagellates are thought to be one of the oldest life forms on earth, few people took notice of Pfiesteria.
Lately, however, blooms - or huge, dense populations - of Pfiesteria are appearing in coastal waters, and in such large
concentrations the dinoflagellates become ruthless killers. The blooms emit powerful toxins that weaken and entrap fish that
swim into the area. The toxins eventually cause the fish to develop large bleeding sores through which the tiny creatures
attack, feasting on blood and flesh. Often the damage is astounding. During a 1991 fish kill, which was blamed on Pfiesteria
on North Carolina's Neuse River, nearly one billion fish died and bulldozers had to be brought in to clear the remains from the
river. Of course, such events can have a devastating effect on commercially important fish, but that is just one way that
Pfiesteria causes problems. The toxins it emits affect human skin in much the same way as they affect fish skin. Additionally,
fisherman and others who have spent time near Pfiesteria blooms report that the toxins seem to get into the air, where once
inhaled they affect the nervous system, causing severe headaches, blurred vision, nausea, breathing difficulty, short-term
memory loss and even cognitive impairment.
For a while, it seemed that deadly Pfiesteria blooms were a threat only to North Carolina waters, but the problem seems to
be spreading. More and more, conditions along the east coast seem to be favorable for Pfiesteria. Researchers suspect that
pollutants such as animal waste from livestock operations, fertilizers washed from farmlands and waste water from mining
operations have probably all combined to promote the growth of Pfiesteria in coastal

IX. 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.
Although the "lie detectors" are being used by governments, police departments, and businesses that all want guaranteed
ways of detecting the truth, the results are not always accurate. Lie detectors are properly called emotion detectors, for their
aim is to measure bodily changes that contradict what a person says. The polygraph machine records changes in heart rate,
breathing, blood pressure, and the electrical activity of the skin (galvanic skin response, or GSR). In the first part of the
polygraph test, you are electronically connected to the machine and asked a few neutral questions ("What is your name?",
"Where do you live?"). Your physical reactions serve as the standard (baseline) for evaluating what comes next. Then you are
asked a few critical questions among the neutral ones ("When did you rob the bank?"). The assumption is that if you are
guilty, your body will reveal the truth, even if you try to deny it. Your heart rate, respiration, and GSR will change abruptly as
you respond to the incriminating questions.
That is the theory; but psychologists have found that lie detectors are simply not reliable. Since most physical changes are
the same across all emotions, machines cannot tell whether you are feeling guilty, angry, nervous, thrilled, or revved up form
an exciting day. Innocent people may be tense and nervous about the whole procedure. They may react physiologically to a
certain word ("bank") not because they robbed it, but because they recently bounced a check. In either case the machine will
record a "lie". The reverse mistake is also common. Some practiced liars can lie without flinching, and others learn to beat the
machine by tensing muscles or thinking about an exciting experience during neutral questions.
Question 34: The word "It" in paragraph 1 refers to.......
A. the truth
B. the question
C. the assumption
D. your body
Question 35: This passage was probably written by a specialist in......
A. criminal psychology B. sociology

D. questions

B. How the detectors are used and their reliability

B. always reveal the truth about a person
C. make guilty people angry

Although the “lie detectors” are being used by governments, police departments, and businesses that all want guaranteed
ways of detecting the truth, the results are not always accurate. Lie detectors are properly called emotion detectors, for their
aim is to measure bodily changes that contradict what a person says. The polygraph machine records changes in heart rate,
breathing, blood pressure, and the electrical activity of the skin (galvanic skin response, or GSR). In the first part of the
polygraph test, you are electronically connected to the machine and asked a few neutral questions (“What is your name?”,
“Where do you live?”). Your physical reactions serve as the standard (baseline) for evaluating what comes next. Then you are
asked a few critical questions among the neutral ones (“When did you rob the bank?”). The assumption is that if you are
guilty, your body will reveal the truth, even if you try to deny it. Your heart rate, respiration, and GSR will change abruptly as
you respond to the incriminating questions.
That is the theory; but psychologists have found that lie detectors are simply not reliable. Since most physical changes are
the same across all emotions, machines cannot tell whether you are feeling guilty, angry, nervous, thrilled, or revved up form
an exciting day. Innocent people may be tense and nervous about the whole procedure. They may react physiologically to a
certain word (“bank”) not because they robbed it, but because they recently bounced a check. In either case the machine will
record a “lie”. The reverse mistake is also common. Some practiced liars can lie without flinching, and others learn to beat the
machine by tensing muscles or thinking about an exciting experience during neutral questions.
Question 23: The word “ones” in paragraph 1 refers to.......
A. questions
B. standards
C. reactions
D. evaluations
Question 24: According to the test, polygraph.........
A. make guilty people angry
B. record a person’s physical reactions

D. your body

each of the questions.
Pollution is a threat to many species on Earth, but sometimes it can cause species to thrive. Such is the case with Pfiesteria
piscicida. A one-celled creature called a dinoflagellate, Pfiesteria inhabits warm coastal areas and river mouths, especially
along the eastern United States. Although scientists have found evidence of Pfiesteria in 3,000-year-old sea floor sediments
and dinoflagellates are thought to be one of the oldest life forms on earth, few people took notice of Pfiesteria.
Lately, however, blooms – or huge, dense populations – of Pfiesteria are appearing in coastal waters, and in such large
concentrations the dinoflagellates become ruthless killers. The blooms emit powerful toxins that weaken and entrap fish that
swim into the area. The toxins eventually cause the fish to develop large bleeding sores through which the tiny creatures
attack, feasting on blood and flesh. Often the damage is astounding. During a 1991 fish kill, which was blamed on Pfiesteria
on North Carolina’s Neuse River, nearly one billion fish died and bulldozers had to be brought in to clear the remains from the
river. Of course, such events can have a devastating effect on commercially important fish, but that is just one way that
Pfiesteria causes problems. The toxins it emits affect human skin in much the same way as they affect fish skin. Additionally,
fisherman and others who have spent time near Pfiesteria blooms report that the toxins seem to get into the air, where once
inhaled they affect the nervous system, causing severe headaches, blurred vision, nausea, breathing difficulty, short-term
memory loss and even cognitive impairment.
For a while, it seemed that deadly Pfiesteria blooms were a threat only to North Carolina waters, but the problem seems to
be spreading. More and more, conditions along the east coast seem to be favorable for Pfiesteria. Researchers suspect that
pollutants such as animal waste from livestock operations, fertilizers washed from farmlands and waste water from mining
operations have probably all combined to promote the growth of Pfiesteria in coastal
Question 39: What is true of Pfiesteriul?
A. It seems to flourish in the presence of certain pollutants.
B. It has been a menace to fish and humans for over 3000 years.
C. In large concentrations, it poses a threat io fish but not to humans.
D. It is the oldest life form on earth.
Question 40: In which environment would you NOT expect a Pfiesteria bloom to develop?
A. a river located near a rock quarry
B. a river that flows through rich farmland
C. a marsh which absorbs waste water from a nearby pig farm
D. a cool mountain lake
teeming with fish
Question 41: The word “astounding” in the passage is closest in meaning to.......
A. incredible
B. continual
C. apprehensive
D. spectacular
Question 42: What were bulldozers used for in the Neuse River?
A. removing the huge amount of Pfiesterict from the river
B. scooping up the vast number of dead fish in the water
C. excavating holes to bury the dead fish
D. cleaning up the sediment at the bottom of the river
Question 43: What is especially worrying about Pfiesteria blooms?
A. They are fatal to humans who come in contact with them
B. Conditions are becoming increasingly favourable for their spread
C. Researchers have no idea as to exactly what causes them
D. They have devastated the fishing industry in U.S coastal waters
Question 44: What is the main function of the toxins emitted by the dinoflagellates?
A. They damage the nervous system of potential predators.
B. They are quick-acting poisons that kill fish within minutes.
C. They weaken the fish just long enough for the tiny creatures to attack.


D. They cause fish to develop wounds on which creatures feed.
Question 45: All of the following are true, according to the passage, EXCEPT.....
A. the toxic subtances emitted by Pfiesteria have a similar effect on human and fish skins
B. Pfiesteria was not commonly noticed despite scientific findings
C. Pfiesteria caused the death of about one billion fish in the late 1990s
D. animal and chemical waste from farmlands, livestock and mining operations m; contribute to the expansion of
Pfiesteria
Question 46: According to the paragraph 2, what will NOT happen if one breathes the toxic air?
A. terrible headaches
B. circulatory difficulty
C. visual impairments
D. vomiting

Although the “lie detectors” are being used by governments, police departments, and businesses that all want guaranteed
ways of detecting the truth, the results are not always accurate. Lie detectors are properly called emotion detectors, for their
aim is to measure bodily changes that contradict what a person says. The polygraph machine records changes in heart rate,


breathing, blood pressure, and the electrical activity of the skin (galvanic skin response, or GSR). In the first part of the
polygraph test, you are electronically connected to the machine and asked a few neutral questions (“What is your name?”,
“Where do you live?”). Your physical reactions serve as the standard (baseline) for evaluating what comes next. Then you are
asked a few critical questions among the neutral ones (“When did you rob the bank?”). The assumption is that if you are
guilty, your body will reveal the truth, even if you try to deny it. Your heart rate, respiration, and GSR will change abruptly as
you respond to the incriminating questions.
That is the theory; but psychologists have found that lie detectors are simply not reliable. Since most physical changes are
the same across all emotions, machines cannot tell whether you are feeling guilty, angry, nervous, thrilled, or revved up form
an exciting day. Innocent people may be tense and nervous about the whole procedure. They may react physiologically to a
certain word (“bank”) not because they robbed it, but because they recently bounced a check. In either case the machine will
record a “lie”. The reverse mistake is also common. Some practiced liars can lie without flinching, and others learn to beat the
machine by tensing muscles or thinking about an exciting experience during neutral questions.
Question 44: What is the main idea of this passage?
A. Physical reaction reveal guilty
B. How the detectors are used and their reliability
C. Lie detectors make innocent people nervous
D. Lie detectors distinguish different emotions
Question 45: According to the passage, what kind of questions is asked on the first part of the polygraph test?

XI. 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.
Pollution is a threat to many species on Earth, but sometimes it can cause species to thrive. Such is the case with Pfiesteria
piscicida. A one-celled creature called a dinoflagellate, Pfiesteria inhabits warm coastal areas and river mouths, especially
along the eastern United States. Although scientists have found evidence of Pfiesteria in 3,000-year-old sea floor sediments
and dinoflagellates are thought to be one of the oldest life forms on earth, few people took notice of Pfiesteria.
Lately, however, blooms – or huge, dense populations – of Pfiesteria are appearing in coastal waters, and in such large
concentrations the dinoflagellates become ruthless killers. The blooms emit powerful toxins that weaken and entrap fish that
swim into the area. The toxins eventually cause the fish to develop large bleeding sores through which the tiny creatures
attack, feasting on blood and flesh. Often the damage is astounding. During a 1991 fish kill, which was blamed on Pfiesteria
on North Carolina’s Neuse River, nearly one billion fish died and bulldozers had to be brought in to clear the remains from the
river. Of course, such events can have a devastating effect on commercially important fish, but that is just one way that
Pfiesteria causes problems. The toxins it emits affect human skin in much the same way as they affect fish skin. Additionally,
fisherman and others who have spent time near Pfiesteria blooms report that the toxins seem to get into the air, where once
inhaled they affect the nervous system, causing severe headaches, blurred vision, nausea, breathing difficulty, short-term
memory loss and even cognitive impairment.
For a while, it seemed that deadly Pfiesteria blooms were a threat only to North Carolina waters, but the problem seems to
be spreading. More and more, conditions along the east coast seem to be favorable for Pfiesteria. Researchers suspect that
pollutants such as animal waste from livestock operations, fertilizers washed from farmlands and waste water from mining
operations have probably all combined to promote the growth of Pfiesteria in coastal
Question 41: What is true of Pfiesteriul?
A. It is the oldest life form on earth.
B. It seems to flourish in the presence of certain pollutants.
C. In large concentrations, it poses a threat io fish but not to humans.
D. It has been a menace to fish and humans for over 3000 years.
Question 42: All of the following are true, according to the passage, EXCEPT.....
A. the toxic subtances emitted by Pfiesteria have a similar effect on human and fish skins
B. Pfiesteria caused the death of about one billion fish in the late 1990s


C. animal and chemical waste from farmlands, livestock and mining operations m; contribute to the expansion of
Pfiesteria
D. Pfiesteria was not commonly noticed despite scientific findings
Question 43: What is the main function of the toxins emitted by the dinoflagellates?
A. They damage the nervous system of potential predators.
B. They are quick-acting poisons that kill fish within minutes.
C. They cause fish to develop wounds on which creatures feed.
D. They weaken the fish just long enough for the tiny creatures to attack.
Question 44: What is especially worrying about Pfiesteria blooms?
A. Researchers have no idea as to exactly what causes them
B. They are fatal to humans who come in contact with them
C. They have devastated the fishing industry in U.S coastal waters
D. Conditions are becoming increasingly favourable for their spread
Question 45: In which environment would you NOT expect a Pfiesteria bloom to develop?
A. a river located near a rock quarry
B. a river that flows through rich farmland
C. a marsh which absorbs waste water from a nearby pig farm
D. a cool mountain lake
teeming with fish

A. removing the huge amount of Pfiesterict from the river
B. excavating holes to bury the dead fish
C. scooping up the vast number of dead fish in the water
D. cleaning up the sediment at the bottom of the river

VI. 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.
Pollution is a threat to many species on Earth, but sometimes it can cause species to thrive. Such is the case with Pfiesteria
piscicida. A one-celled creature called a dinoflagellate, Pfiesteria inhabits warm coastal areas and river mouths, especially
along the eastern United States. Although scientists have found evidence of Pfiesteria in 3,000-year-old sea floor sediments
and dinoflagellates are thought to be one of the oldest life forms on earth, few people took notice of Pfiesteria.
Lately, however, blooms – or huge, dense populations – of Pfiesteria are appearing in coastal waters, and in such large
concentrations the dinoflagellates become ruthless killers. The blooms emit powerful toxins that weaken and entrap fish that
swim into the area. The toxins eventually cause the fish to develop large bleeding sores through which the tiny creatures
attack, feasting on blood and flesh. Often the damage is astounding. During a 1991 fish kill, which was blamed on Pfiesteria
on North Carolina’s Neuse River, nearly one billion fish died and bulldozers had to be brought in to clear the remains from the
river. Of course, such events can have a devastating effect on commercially important fish, but that is just one way that
Pfiesteria causes problems. The toxins it emits affect human skin in much the same way as they affect fish skin. Additionally,
fisherman and others who have spent time near Pfiesteria blooms report that the toxins seem to get into the air, where once
inhaled they affect the nervous system, causing severe headaches, blurred vision, nausea, breathing difficulty, short-term
memory loss and even cognitive impairment.
For a while, it seemed that deadly Pfiesteria blooms were a threat only to North Carolina waters, but the problem seems to
be spreading. More and more, conditions along the east coast seem to be favorable for Pfiesteria. Researchers suspect that
pollutants such as animal waste from livestock operations, fertilizers washed from farmlands and waste water from mining
operations have probably all combined to promote the growth of Pfiesteria in coastal

VII. 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.
Although the “lie detectors” are being used by governments, police departments, and businesses that all want guaranteed
ways of detecting the truth, the results are not always accurate. Lie detectors are properly called emotion detectors, for their
aim is to measure bodily changes that contradict what a person says. The polygraph machine records changes in heart rate,
breathing, blood pressure, and the electrical activity of the skin (galvanic skin response, or GSR). In the first part of the
polygraph test, you are electronically connected to the machine and asked a few neutral questions (“What is your name?”,
“Where do you live?”). Your physical reactions serve as the standard (baseline) for evaluating what comes next. Then you are
asked a few critical questions among the neutral ones (“When did you rob the bank?”). The assumption is that if you are
guilty, your body will reveal the truth, even if you try to deny it. Your heart rate, respiration, and GSR will change abruptly as
you respond to the incriminating questions.
That is the theory; but psychologists have found that lie detectors are simply not reliable. Since most physical changes are
the same across all emotions, machines cannot tell whether you are feeling guilty, angry, nervous, thrilled, or revved up form
an exciting day. Innocent people may be tense and nervous about the whole procedure. They may react physiologically to a
certain word (“bank”) not because they robbed it, but because they recently bounced a check. In either case the machine will
record a “lie”. The reverse mistake is also common. Some practiced liars can lie without flinching, and others learn to beat the
machine by tensing muscles or thinking about an exciting experience during neutral questions.
