Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct
answer for each of the following questions.
In the twentieth century, people depend on unlimited energy to power their everyday lives. A wide range of
energy-run devices and modern conveniences are taken for granted, and although it may seem that we will never in
danger of living without those conveniences, the fact is that many supplies of energy are dwindling rapidly.
Scientists are constantly searching for new sources of power to keep modern society running. Whether future
populations will continue to enjoy the benefits of abundant energy will depend on this research.
Coal, oil, and natural gas supply modern civilization with most of its power. However , not only are supplies of
these fuels limited, but they are a major source of pollution. If the energy demands of the future are to be met
without seriously harming the environment, existing alternative energy sources must be improved or further
explored and developed. These include nuclear, water, solar, wind, and geothermal power, as well as energy from
new, nonpolluting types of fuels. Each of these alternative, however, has advantages and disadvantages.
Nuclear power plants efficiently produce large amounts of electricity without polluting the atmosphere; however,
they are costly to build and maintain, and they pose the daunting problem of what to do with nuclear wastes.
Hydroelectricity power is inexpensive and environmentally safe, but impractical for communities located far from

moving water. Harnessing energy from tides and waves has similar drawbacks. Solar power holds great promise
for the future but methods of collecting and concentrating sunlight are as yet inefficient, as are methods of
harnessing wind power.
Every source of energy has its disadvantages. One way to minimize them is to use less energy. Conservation efforts
coupled with renewable energy resourses, such as combination of solar, water, wind and geothermal energy and
alternative fuels, such as alcohol and hydrogen, will ensure supplies of clean, affordable energy for humanity 's

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
Water scarcity is fast becoming one of the major limiting factors in world crop production. In many areas, poor
agricultural practices have led to increasing desertification and the loss of formerly arable lands. Consequently,
those plants species that are well adapted to survival in dry climates are being looked at for an answer in
developing more efficient crops to grow on marginally arable lands.
Plants use several mechanisms to ensure their survival in desert environments. Some involve purely mechanical
and physical adaptations, such as the shape of the plant’s surface, smaller leaf size, and extensive root systems.
Some of the adaptations are related to chemical mechanisms. Many plants, such as cacti, have internal gums and
mucilages which give them water-retaining properties. Another chemical mechanism is that of the epicuticular wax
layer. This wax layer acts as an impervious cover to protect the plant. It prevents excessive loss of internal
moisture. It also protects the plant from external aggression, which can come from inorganic agents such as gases,
or organic agents which include bacteria and plant pets.
Researchers have proposed that synthetic waxes with similar protective abilities could be prepared based on
knowledge of desert plants. If successfully developed, such a compound could be used to greatly increase a plant’s
ability to maintain health in such adverse situations as inadequate water supply, limited fertilizers availability,
attacked by pets, and poor storage after harvesting.

A. desertification B. decreasing water supply C. factors limiting crop production D. developing efficient plants

Question 37: Which is one of the ways in which the epicuticular wax protects the plant?
A. It helps the plant to avoid excessive moisture intake.
B. It helps the plant to attack aggressors.
C. It releases gases against plant pets.
D. It guards against bacteria.
Question 38: The word “it” refers to _______________.
A. another chemical mechanism
B. the epicuticular wax layer
C. an impervious plantlike cover
D. the loss of internal moisture
