 Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate

Although they are an inexpensive supplier of vitamins, minerals, and high- quality protein,
eggs also contain a high level of blood cholesterol, one of the major causes of heart diseases. One
egg yolk, in fact, contains a little more than two- thirds of the suggested daily cholesterol limit. This
knowledge has driven egg sales to plummet in recent years, which in turn has brought about the
development of several alternatives to eating regular eggs. One alternative is to eat substitute eggs.
These eggs substitutes are not really eggs, but they look somewhat like eggs when they are cooked.
They have the advantage of having low cholesterol rates, and they can be scrambled or used in
banking. One disadvantage, however, is that they are not good for frying, poaching, or boiling. A
second alternative to regular eggs is a new type of egg, sometimes called "designer" eggs. These
eggs are produced by hens that are fed low- flat diets consisting of ingredients such as canola oil,
flax, and rice bran. In spite of their diet, however, these hens produce eggs that contain the same
amount of cholesterol as regular eggs. Yet, the producers of these eggs claim that eating their eggs
will not raise the blood cholesterol in humans.
Eggs producers claim that their product has been portrayed unfairly. They cite scientific
studies to back up their claim. And, in fact, studies on the relationship between eggs and human
cholesterol levels have brought mixed results. It may be that is not the type of eggs that is the main
determinant of cholesterol but the person who is eating the eggs. Some people may be more
sensitive to cholesterol derived from food than other people. In fact, there is evidence that certainly
dietary fats stimulate the body's production of blood cholesterol. Consequently, while it still makes
sense to limit one's intake of eggs, even designer eggs, it seems that doing this without regulating
dietary fat will probably not help reduce the blood cholesterol level.
Question 36: What is the main purpose of the passage?
A. To introduce the idea that dietary at increases the blood cholesterol level.
B. To make people know about the relationship between eggs and cholesterol.
C. To persuade people that eggs are unhealthy and should not be eaten.
D. To convince people to eat "designer" eggs and egg substitutes.
Question 37: According to the passage, which of the following is a cause of heart diseases?
A. Minerals
B. Cholesterol
C. Canola oil
D. Vitamins
Question 38: What is meant by the phrase "mixed results"?
A. The results are blended
B. The results are a composite of things

C. The results are inconclusive
D. The results are mingled together
Question 39: According to the author, which of the following may reduce blood cholesterol?
A. Reducing egg intake but not fat intake B. Increasing egg intake and fat intake
C. Decreasing egg intake and fat intake
D. Increasing egg intake but not fat intake
Question 40: According to the passage, one yolk contains approximately what fraction of the
suggested daily limit for human consumption of cholesterol?
A. 3/4
B. 2/3
C. 1/2
D. 1/3

 Read the following passage and Mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate

The goal of Internet-based encyclopedia Wikipedia (www.wikipedia.org) is to give everyone
on the planet access to information. Like other encyclopedias, Wikipedia contains lots of
information: more than 2.5 million articles in 200 different languages covering just about every
subject. Unlike other encyclopedias, however, Wikipedia is not written by experts, but by ordinary
people. These writers are not paid and their names are not published. They contribute to
Wikipedia simply because they want to share their knowledge.
Encyclopedias began in ancient times as collections of writings about all aspects of human
knowledge. The word itself comes from ancient Greek, and means "a complete general education".
Real popularity for encyclopedias came in the nineteenth century in Europe and the United States,
with the publication of encyclopedias written for ordinary readers. With the invention of the CDROM, the same amount of information could be put on a few computer discs. Then with the
Internet, it became possible to create an online encyclopedia that could be constantly updated, like
Microsoft's Encarta. However, even Internet-based encyclopedias like Encarta were written by paid
experts. At first, Wikipedia, the brainchild of Jimmy Wales, a businessman in Chicago, was not so
different from these. In 2001, he had the idea for an Internet-based encyclopedia that would
provide information quickly and easily to everyone. Furthermore, that information would be
available free, unlike other Internet encyclopedias at that time.
But Wales, like everyone else, believed that people with special knowledge were needed to
write the articles, and so he began by hiring experts. He soon changed his approach, however, as it
took them a long time to finish their work. He decided to open up the encyclopedia in a radical new
way, so that everyone would have access not only to the information, but also to the process of
putting this information online. To do this, he used what is known as "Wiki" software (from the
Hawaiian word for "fast"), which allows users to create or alter content on web page. The system is
very simple: When you open the web site, you can simply search for information or you can log on
to become a writer or editor of articles. If you find an article that interests you - about your
hometown, for example - you can correct it or expand it. This process goes on until no one is
interested in making any more changes.
Question 43: Wikipedia is a(n)_________.
A. book
B. journal
C. article
D. dictionary

A. CD-ROM dictionary
B. printed encyclopedia
C. online encyclopedia
D. updateable online encyclopedia
Question 47: The word "approach" in the third paragraph of the passage means.
A. idea
B. time
C. method
D. writing
