correct answer to each of the questions.
"Did you see that?" Joe said to his friend Bill. "You're a great shooter!"
Bill caught the basketball and bounced it before throwing it again. The ball flew into the net.
"Bill, you never miss!" Joe said admiringly.
"Unless I'm in a real game," Bill complained. "Then I miss all the time."
Joe knew that Bill was right. Bill performed much better when he was having fun with Joe in the school yard
than he did when he was playing for the school team in front of a large crowd.
"Maybe you just need to practice more," Joe suggested.
"But I practice all the time with you!" Bill objected. He shook his head. "I just can't play well when people are
"You play well when I'm watching," Joe pointed out.
"That's because I've known you since we were five years old," Bill said with a smile. "I'm just not comfortable
playing when other people are around."
Joe nodded and understood, but he also had an idea.
The next day Joe and Bill met in the school yard again to practice. After a few minutes, Joe excused himself.
"Practice without me," Joe said to his friend. "I'll be back in a minute."
Joe hurried through the school building, gathering together whomever he could find—two students, a math
teacher, two secretaries, and a janitor. When Joe explained why he needed them, everyone was happy to help.
Joe reminded the group to stay quiet as they all went toward the school's basketball court. As Joe had hoped,
Bill was still practicing basketball. He made five baskets in a row without noticing the silent people standing
"Hey, Bill!" Joe called out finally.
Bill turned. A look of surprise came over his face.
"I just wanted to show you that you could play well with people watching you," Joe said. "Now you'll have

219847 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.
When another old cave is discovered in the south of France, it is not usually news. Rather, it is an ordinary
event. Such discoveries are so frequent these days that hardly anybody pays heed to them. However, when the
Lascaux cave complex was discovered in 1940, the world was amazed.
Painted directly on its walls were
hundreds of scenes showing how people lived thousands of years ago. The scenes show people hunting animals,
such as bison or wild cats. Other images depict birds and, most noticeably, horses, which appear in more than
300 wall images, by far outnumbering all other animals.
Early artists drawing these animals accomplished a monumental and difficult task. “They” did not limit
themselves to the easily accessible walls but carried their painting materials to spaces that required climbing
steep walls or crawling into narrow passages in the Lascaux complex.
Unfortunately, the paintings have been exposed to the destructive action of water and temperature changes,
which easily wear the images away. Because the Lascaux caves have many entrances, air movement has also
damaged the images inside. Although they are not out in the open air, where natural light would have
destroyed them long ago, many of the images have deteriorated and are barely recognizable. To prevent further
damage, the site was closed to tourists in 1963, 23 years after it was discovered.
