 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 36 to 42.
Until recently, most American entrepreneurs were men. Discrimination against women in
business, the demands of caring for families, and lack of business training had kept the number of
women entrepreneurs small. Now, however, businesses owned by women account for more than
$40 billion in annual revenues, and this figure is likely to continue rising throughout the 1990s. As
Carolyn Doppelt Gray, an official of the Small Business Administration, has noted, “The 1970s was
the decade of women entering management, and the 1980s turned out to be the decade of the
woman entrepreneur". What are some of the factors behind this trend? For one thing, as more
women earn advanced degrees in business and enter the corporate world, they are finding
obstacles. Women are still excluded from most executive suites. Charlotte Taylor, a management
consultant, had noted, "In the 1970s women believed if they got an MBA and worked hard they
could become chairman of the board. Now they've found out that isn't going to happen, so they go
out on their own".
In the past, most women entrepreneurs worked in "women's" fields: cosmetics and
clothing, for example. But this is changing. Consider ASK Computer Systems, a $22-million-a-year
computer software business, it was founded in 1973 by Sandra Kurtzig, who was then a housewife
with degrees in math and engineering. When Kurtzig founded the business, her first product was
software that let weekly newspapers keep tabs on their newspaper carriers-and her office was a
bedroom at home, with a shoebox under the bed to hold the company's cash, After she succeeded
with the newspaper software system, she hired several bright computer-science graduates to
develop additional programs. When these were marketed and sold, ASK began to grow. It now has
200 employees, and Sandra Kurtzig owns $66.9 million of stock.
Of course, many women who start their own businesses fail, just as men often do. They still
face hurdles in the business world, especially problems in raising money; the banking and finance
world is still dominated by men, and old attitudes die hard. Most businesses owned by women are
still quite small. But the situation is changing; there are likely to be many more Sandra Kurtzigs in
the years ahead.
Question 36. What is the main idea of this passage?
A. Women today are better educated than in the past, making them more attractive to the

 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 growth of cities, the construction of hundreds of new factories, and the spread of
railroads in the United Stases before 1850 had increased the need for better illumination. But the
lighting in American homes had improved very little over that of ancient times. Through the
colonial period, homes were lit with tallow candles or with a lamp of the kind used in ancient
Rome- a dish of fish oil or other animal or vegetable oil in which a twisted rag served as a wick.
Some people used lard, but they had to heat charcoal underneath to keep it soft and burnable. The
sperm whale provided superior burning oil, but this was expensive. In 1830 a new substance
called "camphene" was patented, and it proved to be an remained expensive, had an unpleasant
odor, and also was dangerously explosive.
Between 1830 and 1850 it seemed that the only hope for cheaper illumination in the United
States was the wider use of gas. In the 1840s American gas manufacturers adopted improved
British techniques for producing illuminating gas from coal. But the expense of piping gas to the
consumer remained so high that until mid- century gas lighting was feasible only in urban areas,
and only for public buildings for the wealthy. In 1854 a Canadian doctor, Abraham Gesner,
patented a process for distilling a pitch like mineral found in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia that
produced illuminating gas and an oil that he called "kerosene" (from "keros", the Greek word for
wax, and "ene" because it resembled camphene). Kerosene, though cheaper than camphene, had
an unpleasant odor, and Gesner never made his fortune from it. But Gesner had aroused a new
hope for making illuminating oil from a product coming out of North American mines.
Question 43. Which of the following is NOT mentioned as a reason why better lighting had
become necessary by the mid“ nineteenth century?
A. development of railroads
B. demand for better medical facilities
C. increases in the number of new factories
D. growth of cities

A. It was first developed in the United States.
B. It was not allowed to be used in public buildings.
C. It was not widely available until mid- century.

Question 47. The word "resembled" in line 17 is closest in meaning to________.
A. was similar to
B. cost the same as C. was made from D. sounded like
Question 48. According to the passage, what advantage did the kerosene patented by Gesner have
over camphene?
A. Kerosene had a more pleasant smell. B. Kerosene was less expensive.
C. Kerosene burned more brightly.
D. Kerosene was safer to use.

A. fortune
B. odor
C. camphene
D. kerosene
Question 50. Which of the following best describes the organization of the passage?
A. a description of events in chronological order
