answer to each of the questions from 30 to 34.
Another form of body language that is used differently, depending on the culture, is distance. In North
America people don't generally stand as close to each other as in South America. Two North Body language is a
vital form of communication. In fact, it is believed that the various forms of body language contribute about 70
percent to our comprehension. It is important to note, however, that body language varies in different cultures. Take
for example, eye movement. In the USA a child is expected to look directly at a parent or teacher who is scolding
him/her. In other cultures the opposite is true. Looking directly at a teacher or parent in such a situation is
considered a sign of disrespect.
Americans who don't know each other well will keep a distance of four feet between them, whereas South
Americans in the same situation will stand two to three feet apart. North Americans will stand closer than two feet
apart only if they are having a confidential conversation or if there is intimacy between them.
Gestures are often used to communicate. We point a finger, raise an eyebrow, wave an arm – or move any
other part of the body – to show what we want to say. However, this does not mean that people all over the world
use the same gestures to express the same meanings. Very often we find that the same gestures can communicate
different meanings, depending on the country. An example of a gesture that could be misinterpreted is sticking out
the tongue. In many cultures it is a sign of making a mistake, but in some places it communicates ridicule.
The dangers of misunderstanding one another are great. Obviously, it is not enough to learn the language of
another culture. You must also learn its non-verbal signals if you want to communicate successfully.
Question 30: What is the passage mainly about?
A. The significance of non-verbal signals in America
B. Misunderstandings in communication
C. Interpretations of gestures in different cultures
D. Non-verbal communication across cultures

__________.
A. stand close to the person
B.look directly at the person
C. raise his/her eyebrows
D. point a finger at the person
Question 32: The word intimacy in paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to __________.
A. enjoyment
B. closeness
C. strength
D. agreement
Question 33: The word it in paragraph 3 refers to __________.
A. an example
B. making a mistake C. the country
D.sticking out the tongue
Question 34: Which form of body language is NOT mentioned in the passage?
A. posture

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 35 to 42.
.
Human memory, formerly believed to be rather inefficient, is really more sophisticated than that of a computer.
Researchers approaching the problem from a variety of points of view have all concluded that there is a great deal
more stored in our minds than has been generally supposed. Dr. Wilder Penfield, a Canadian neurosurgeon, proved
that by stimulating their brains electrically, he could elicit the total recall of specific events in his subjects’ lives.
Even dreams and other minor events supposedly forgotten for many years suddenly emerged in detail.
The memory trace is the term for whatever is the internal representation of the specific information about the
event stored in the memory. Assumed to have been made by structural changes in the brain, the memory trace is not
subject to direct observation but is rather a theoretical construct that we use to speculate about how information
presented at a particular time can cause performance at a later time. Most theories include the strength of the
memory trace as a variable in the degree of learning, retention, and retrieval possible for a memory. One theory is
that the fantastic capacity for storage in the brain is the result of an almost unlimited combination of
interconnections between brain cells, stimulated by patterns of activity. Repeated references to the same information
support recall. Or, to say that another way, improved performance is the result of strengthening the chemical bonds
in the memory.
