Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D to indicate the correct answer to
each of the questions.
Deep in the forests of central France lies a building site like no other. Here, a team of workers
are building a 13th-century castle. They wear clothes from the period and use only the
techniques and materials that were available at the time.
The site was very carefully chosen, as everything needed to build the castle, from stone and
wood to water, had to be close by. The castle is called Guedelon and work on it began in 1997.
It is not expected to finish until well into the 2020s, at the earliest.
Guedelon is owned by Michel Guyot, who first had the idea for the project while repairing
another castle. His aim is to solve some of the mysteries about how such castles were built.
Each year, the team at Guedelon draw up building plans based on research at other 13th-century
castles. A group of architects then studies these plans and will only permit building work to
continue when they are happy with them. Many history professors are also involved and this has


helped both the project and them. By watching the builders, the professors have discovered a
huge amount about the human side of castle building.
Today, Guedelon employs some 50 people, of whom 35 work on the building site itself. Some
were already quailed but others have learned their skills on site. The project has also become a
major tourist attraction, welcoming around 300,000 people every year. And though the crowds
of 21st-century visitors with their cameras and bright umbrellas do rather put a damper on the
13th-century atmosphere of the place, they are essential to the project. For the past decade, all
the work at Guedelon has been paid for by entrance fees and shop sales.
(adapted from Cambridge Preliminary English Test, D241/01, Test 17051, 04th May, 2017)
31. What is the writer doing in this text?
describing an unusual experiment

advertising a site for tourists to visit

giving a review of a recent experience

explaining how a problem was solved

32. What do we learn about Guedelon from the first paragraph?
The location is suitable for its purpose.
Work is going faster than expected.
The idea seemed impossible before 1997.
It's hard to find workers with the right skills.
33. What is the role of the architects on the project?
to suggest designs for the following year's building work
to approve plans made by the team at Guedelon
to prevent earlier mistakes made at Guedelon being repeated
to research building techniques at 13th-century castles
34. How does the writer feel about tourists to Guedelon?
He understands that it's necessary for their numbers to be high.
He feels they could be charged higher entrance fees.
He wishes they were more interested in history.
He thinks the information given to them could be improved.
35. What would a worker at the site say about Guedelon?


Michel is an excellent boss. It's hard to believe he had no previous building experience before
this.
We have a few problems with the history professors on the site, but generally the project has
been a big success.
I don't know when the work will finish, but I've gained a lot of knowledge here. I think the
experts have too!
My favourite part of the job is when the tourists come and we dress up for them in 13thcentury clothes.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D to indicate the correct answer to
each of the questions.
You might be surprised to know that bicycles have existed for less than two hundred years.
Though the earliest comes from a sketch said to be from 1534 and attributed to Gian Giacomo,
there are several early but unverified claims for the invention of the modern bicycle. No one is
sure who invented this popular two- wheeled machine, but it was probably either the German
Karl von Drais, in 1817, or the American W K Clarkson, in 1819.
The early models didn't look much like the bicycles of today. The front wheel was much bigger
than the back one, and also there weren't any pedals – riders had to move themselves forward by
pushing their feet against the ground. Pedals finally arrived in the 1840s, and in 1879 an
Englishman named Henry Lawson had the idea of connecting them to the back wheel with a
chain. Gears, which made things much easier for those cycling uphill, first appeared in the
1890s.
There are now approximately one billion bicycles in the world – more than twice the total


number of cars – and they are the main form of transport in some developing countries. They
have to compete with cars on the streets of all the world’s cities, and the two forms of transport
don't always mix well. In London in 2005, for example, over 300 cyclists were either killed or
seriously injured in accidents involving cars. Even though bicycles are much more
environmentally friendly than cars, most governments don't do much to encourage people to
ride rather than drive. In China, which is famous for having a huge number of bicycles (about
200 million), the authorities in the city of Shanghai even banned cycling for a while in 2003.
Cycling is on the rise is the United Kingdom, and the number of annual journeys made by bike
in London has increased 50% over the last five years. Experts say there is a mixture of reasons
for this boom: concerns about the environment, the desire to keep fit, and also the fact that
cycling is often not only cheaper but also quicker than travelling by car.
However, although one in three British adults owns a bicycle, they still don't use them nearly as
much as they could. Bikes are used for a mere 2% of journeys in the UK, while the figure for
the Netherlands is an impressive 27%.
Cycling is becoming more popular as a competitive sport, and the most famous race is of course
the three-week Tour de France, which takes place every July. American Lance Armstrong
won it every year from 1999 to 2005 – one of the greatest individual sporting achievements of
all time.
(adapted from Handouts for B2, University of Linguistics and International Studies, 2017)
