the correct answer to each of the questions from 36 to 42.
Although speech is the most advanced form of communication, there are many ways of
communicating without using speech. Signals, signs, symbols, and gestures may be found in every
known culture. The basic function of signal is to impinge upon the environment in such a way that
it attracts attention, as. For example, the dots and dashes of a telegraph circuit. Coded to refer to
speech, the potential for communication is very great. Less adaptable to the codification of words,
signs also contain meaning in and of themselves. A stop sign or a barber pole conveys meaning
quickly and conveniently. Symbols are more difficult to describe than either signals or signs
because of their intricate relationship with the receiver's cultural perceptions. In some cultures,
applauding in a theater provides performers with an auditory symbol of approval. Gestures such as
waving and handshaking also communicate certain cultural messages.
Although signals, signs, symbols, and gestures are very useful, they do have a major
disadvantage. They usually do not allow ideas to be shared without the sender being directly
adjacent to the receiver. As a result, means of communication intended to be used for long
distances and extended periods are based upon speech. Radio, television, and the telephone are
only a few.
Question 36: Which of the following would be the best title for the passage?
B. Signs and signals
Question 37: What does the author say about speech?
A. It is dependent upon the advances made by inventors.
B. It is the most advanced form of communication.
C. It is necessary for communication to occur.
D. It is the only true form of communication.

B. Signals, symbols, signs and gestures are very useful
C. Signals, symbols, signs and gestures also have disadvantages
D. Signals, symbols, signs and gestures are used for long distance contact
Question 39: The phrase "impinge upon" in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to____________.
Question 40: The word "it" in paragraph refers to____________.
Question 41: Applauding was cited as an example of____________.
A. a signal
B. a sign

Question 42: Why were the telephone, radio, and television invented?

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 43 to 50.
The hippopotamus is the third largest land animal, smaller only than the elephant and the
rhinoceros. Its name comes from two Greek words which mean "river horse". The long name of
this animal is often shortened to the easier to handle term "hippo."
The hippo has a natural affinity for the water. It does not float on top of the water; instead,
it can easily walk along the bottom of a body of water. The hippo commonly remains underwater
for three to five minutes and has been known to stay under for up to half an hour before coming up
In spite of its name, the hippo has relatively little in common with the horse and instead has
a number of interesting similarities in common with the whale. When a hippo comes up after a stay
at the bottom of a lake or river, it releases air through a blowhole, just like a whale. In addition, the
hippo resembles the whale in that they both have thick layers of blubber for protection and they
are almost completely hairless.
