 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.
There are many theories of aging, but virtually all fall into the category of hypotheses with a
minimum of supporting evidence. One viewpoint is that aging occurs as the body's organ systems
become less efficient. Thus failures in the immune system, hormonal system, and nervous system
could all produce characteristics that we associate with aging. Following a different vein, many
current researchers are looking for evidence at the cellular and sub cellular level. It has been
shown that cells such as human fibroblasts (generalized tissue cells) grown in culture divide only
a limited number of times and then die. Only cancer cells seem immortal in this respect. Fibroblast
cells from an embryo divide more times than those taken from an adult. Thus some researchers
believe that aging occurs at the cellular level and is part of the cell's genetic makeup. Any event that
disturbs the cell's genetic machinery such as mutation, damaging chemicals in the cell's
environment, or loss of genetic material, could cause cells to lose their ability to divide and thus
bring on aging. Other theories of aging look at different processes.
Chronological aging refers to the passage of time since birth and is usually measured in
years. While chronological age can be useful in estimating the average status of a large group of
people, it is a poor indicator of an individual person's status because there is a tremendous amount
of variation from one individual to the next in regard to the rate at which biological age changes
occur. For example, on the average, aging results in people losing much of their ability to perform
strenuous activities, yet some elderly individuals are excellent marathon runners.
Another type of aging is cosmetic aging, which consists of changes in outward appearance
with advancing age. This includes changes in the body and changes in other aspects of a person's
appearance, such as the style of hair and clothing, the type of eyeglasses, and the use of a hearing
aid. Like chronological aging, it is frequently used to estimate the degree to which other types of
aging have occurred. However, it is an inaccurate indicator for either purpose because of variation
among individuals and because a person's appearance is affected by many factors that are not part
of aging, including illness, poor nutrition, and exposure to sunlight.
Question 36. The author believes the theories of aging are________.
A. well-supported hypotheses
B. poorly supported hypotheses
C. proven theories
D. interesting ideas
Question 37. The word "vein" in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to________.
A. part of the body B. point of view
C. blood vessel
D. cellular level

A. divide infinitely
B. divide and then die
C. divide more in adults than in embryos D. bring on aging
Question 39. The word "culture" in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to________.
A. libraries
B. a society's traditions and values

 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.
Are you interested in seeing the beautiful fall foliage of New England but tired of traffic jams
and overbooked hotels? Then this year forget the crowds in New England and see the beautiful
colors of autumn in the Catskills.
These rugged mountains in New York State, just 90 miles northwest of New York City, are
famous for the legendary tales of Rip Van Winkle, and more recently for the summer hotels that
sprang up in the region during the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. Families trying to escape the heat of
New York City found the Catskills to be the perfect place to stay for a month or so each summer. By
the late 1950s there were over 500 resorts and hotels offering nighttime entertainment as well as
all kinds of outdoor activities. Famous comedians like Jackie Gleason, Joan Rivers, and Sid Caesar
all got their start touring the hotel clubs here. Since the introduction of air-conditioning and
cheaper air travel, however, families have stopped coming to the Catskills in such large numbers,
choosing instead more distant locations at different times of the year. Many of the Catskill hotels
closed in the 1970s, but some remain and have expanded and changed their facilities to meet the
needs of today's visitors.
Currently, there are many activities available to the traveler besides witnessing the changing
colors of the leaves. There is an all-organic sheep farm where visitors can see how a traditional
sheep farm operates. There are also hundreds of miles of scenic drives in the area. Route 42, for
instance, is an excellent site for spotting bald eagles. For more information on vacations in the
Catskills, call the Office of Public Information.
Question 43. What is the author's main purpose in this passage?
A. to promote the Catskills as a vacation destination.
B. to introduce visitors to famous Catskills entertainers.
C. to describe the history of the Catskills region.
D. to compare the Catskills to New England.
Question 44. The word "rugged" in paragraph 2 could be best replaced by which of the following?
A. barren
B. rough
C. tall
D. lush
Question 45. According to the passage, which of the following caused the decline in the number of
resorts in the 1970s?
A. television B. shorter vacations
C. affordable air travel
D. more traffic
Question 46. The phrase "sprang up" in paragraph 2 most probably refers to something that
has________.
A. burst forth
B. spread out
C. operated vigorously
D. joined together
Question 47. In what season would a tourist most likely have visited the Catskills in the 1950s?
A. fall
B. winter
C. spring
D. summer
Question 48. What does the passage imply that a visitor might be lucky enough to do?
