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 two basic types of glaciers, those that flow outward in all directions with little
regard for any underlying terrain and those that are confined by terrain to a particular path.
The first category of glaciers includes those massive blankets that cover whole continents,
appropriately called ice sheets. There must be over 50,000 square kilometers of land covered with
ice for the glacier to qualify as an ice sheet. When portions of an ice sheet spread out over the
ocean, they form ice shelves.
About 20,000 years ago the Cordilleran Ice Sheet covered nearly all the mountains in
southern Alaska, western Canada, and the western United States. It was about 3 kilometers deep at
its thickest point in northern Alberta. Now there are only two sheets left on Earth, those covering
Greenland and Antarctica.
Any domelike body of ice that also flows out in all directions but covers less than 50,000
square kilometers is called an ice cap. Although ice caps are rare nowadays, there are a number in
northeastern Canada, on Baffin Island, and on the Queen Elizabeth Islands.
The second category of glaciers includes those of a variety of shapes and sizes generally
called mountain or alpine glaciers. Mountain glaciers are typically identified by the landform that
controls their flow. One form of mountain glacier that resembles an ice cap in that it flows outward
in several directions is called an ice field. The difference between an ice field and an ice cap is
subtle. Essentially, the flow of an ice field is somewhat controlled by surrounding terrain and thus
does not have the domelike shape of a cap. There are several ice fields in the Wrangell, St. Elias, and
Chugach mountains of Alaska and northern British Columbia.
Less spectacular than large ice fields are the most common types of mountain glaciers : the
cirque and valley glaciers. Cirque glaciers are found in depressions in the surface of the land and
have a characteristic circular shape. The ice of valley glaciers, bound by terrain, flows down valleys,
curves around their corners, and falls over cliffs.
Question 36: What does the passage mainly discuss?
A. Where major glaciers are located
B. How glaciers shape the land
C. How glaciers are formed
D. The different kinds of glaciers
Question 37: It can be inferred that ice sheets are so named for which of the following reasons?

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.
During the 19th century, women in the United States organized and participated in a large
number of reform movements, including movements to reorganize the prison system, improve
education, ban the sale of alcohol, and most importantly to free slaves. Some women saw
similarities in the social status of women and slaves. Women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucy
Stone were feminists and abolitionists who supported the rights of both women and blacks. A
number of male abolitionists, including William Lloyd Garrison and Wendell Phillips also
supported the rights of women to speak and participate equally with men in antislavery activities.
Probably more than any other movement, abolitionism offered women a previously denied entry
into politics. They became involved primarily in order to better thefr living conditions and the
conditions of others.
When the Civil war ended in 1865, the 14 th, and 15th, Amendments to the Constitution
adopted in 1868 and 1870 granted citizenship and suffrage to blacks but not to women.
Discouraged but resolved, feminists influenced more and more women to demand the right to vote.
In 1869, the Wyoming Territory had yielded to demands by feminists, but eastern states resisted
more stubbornly than ever before. A woman's suffrage bill had been presented to every Congress
since 1878 but it continually failed to pass until 1920, when the 19 th Amendment granted women
the right to vote.
Question 43: The word "primarily" in the first paragraph is closest in meaning to________.
A. somewhat
B. always
C. above all
D. finally
Question 44: When were women allowed to vote throughout the USA?
A. After 1920
B. After 1878
C. After 1870
D. After 1866
Question 45: What is not among the reformation movements of women?
A. passing the laws
B. prohibiting the sale of alcohol
C. reorganizing the prison
D. freeing the slaves
Question 46: The word “ban” in line 2 most nearly means to________.
A. prohibit
B. publish
C. limit
D. encourage
Question 47: What is the topic of the passage?
A. Abolitionists

C. Women's suffrage
D. The 14th and 15th Amendment
Question 48: According to the passage, why did women become active in politics?
