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

Coincident with concerns about the accelerating loss of species and habitats has been growing appreciation of the importance of biological diversity, the number of species in a particular ecosystem, to the health of the Earth and human well-being. Much has been written about the diversity of terrestrial organisms, particularly the exceptionally rich life associated with tropical rain-forest habitats. Relatively little has been said, however, about diversity of life in the sea even though coral reef systems are comparable to rain forests in terms of richness of life.

An alien exploring Earth would probably give priority to the planet’s dominants, most-distinctive feature - the ocean. Humans have a bias toward land that sometimes gets in the way of truly examining global issues. Seen from far away, it is easy to realize that landmasses occupy only one-third of the Earth’s surface. Given that two thirds of the Earth’s surface is water and that marine life lives at all levels of the ocean, the total three-dimensional living space of the ocean is perhaps 100 times greater than that of land and contains more than 90 percent of all life on Earth even though the ocean has fewer distinct species.

The fact that half of the known species are thought to inhabit the world’s rain forests does not seem surprising, considering the huge number of insects that comprise the bulk of the species. One scientist found many different species of ants in just one tree from a rain forest. While every species is different from every other species, their genetic makeup constrains them to be insects and to share similar characteristics with 750,000 species of insects. If basic, broad categories such as phyla and classes are given more emphasis than differentiating between species, then the greatest diversity of life is unquestionably the sea. Nearly every major type of plant and animal has some representation there .To appreciate fully the diversity and abundance of life in the sea, it helps to think small. Every spoonful of ocean water contains life, on the order of 100 to 100,000 bacterial cells plus assorted microscopic plants and animals, including larvae of organisms ranging from sponges and corals to starfish and clams and much more.

23. The word “there” in paragraph 3 refers to ______.

      A. the Earth’s surface

      B. the sea

      C. a tree

      D. the rain forests

24. The word “bias” in paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to ______.

      A. prejudice

      B. concern

      C. disadvantage

      D. attitude

25. Which of the following conclusions is supported by the passage?

      A. Ocean life is highly adaptive.

      B. More attention needs to be paid to preserving ocean species and habitats.

      C. Ocean life is primarily composed of plants.

      D. The sea is highly resistant to the damage done by pollutants

26. Why does the author compare rain forests and coral reefs?

      A. They are approximately the same size.

      B. Both have many different forms of life.

      C. They share many similar species.

      D. Most of their inhabitants require water.

27. The passage suggests that most rain forest species are ______.

      A. birds

      B. bacteria

      C. mammals

      D. insects

28. Which of the following is true about the ocean according to the passage?

      A. It’s 100 times greater than land.

      B. It contains more species than land.

      C. It contains a vast majority of life on Earth.

      D. It occupies one-third of the Earth’s surface.

29. The author argues that there is more diversity of life in the sea than in the rain forests because ______.

      A. there are too many insects to make meaningful distinctions

      B. marine life-forms reproduce at a faster rate

      C. more phyla and classes of life are represented in the sea

      D. many insect species are too small to divide into categories

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.

Reading to oneself is a modern activity which was almost unknown to the scholars of the classical and medieval worlds, while during the fifteenth century the term “reading” undoubtedly meant reading aloud. Only during the nineteenth century did silent reading become commonplace.

One should be wary, however, of assuming that silent reading came about simply because reading aloud was a distraction to others. Examinations of factors related to the historical development of silent reading have revealed that it became the usual mode of reading for most adults mainly because the tasks themselves changed in character.

The last century saw a steady gradual increase in literacy and thus in the number of readers. As the number of readers increased, the number of potential listeners declined and thus there was some reduction in the need to read aloud. As reading for the benefit of listeners grew less common, came the flourishing of reading as a private activity in such public places as libraries, railway carriages and offices, where reading aloud would cause distraction to other readers.

Towards the end of the century, there was still considerable argument over whether books should be used for information or treated respectfully and over whether the reading of materials such as newspapers was in some way mentally weakening. Indeed, this argument remains with us still in education. However, whatever its virtues, the old shared literacy culture had gone and were replaced by the printed mass media on the one hand and by books and periodicals for a specialized readership on the other.

By the end of the twentieth century, students were being recommended to adopt attitudes to books and to use reading skills which were inappropriate, if not impossible, for the oral reader. The social, cultural and technological changes in the century had greatly altered what the term “reading” implied

32. Reading aloud was more common in the medieval world because_________.
