III. Questions 76-80: Read the following passage and choose the correct answer (A, B, C or D). Write your answers into the box below. (5pts)

Many people now think that teachers give pupils too much homework. They say that it is unnecessary for children to work at home in their free time. Moreover, they argue that most teachers do not properly plan the homework tasks they give to pupils. The result is that pupils have to repeat tasks, which they have already done at school.

Recently many parents complained about the difficult homework which teachers gave to their children. The Greek parents said that most of the homework was a waste of time, and they wanted to stop it. Spain and Turkey are two countries, which stopped homework recently. In Denmark, West Germany and several other countries in Europe, teachers cannot set homework at weekends. In Holland, teachers allow pupils to stay at school to do their homework. The children are free to help one another. Similar arrangements also exist in some British schools.

Most people agree that homework is unfair. A pupil who can do his homework in a quiet and comfortable room is in a much better position than a pupil who does his homework in a small, noisy room with the television on. Some parents help their children with their homework. Other parents take no interest at all in their children’s homework.

It is important, however, that teachers talk to parents about homework. A teacher suggests suitable tasks for parents to do with their children. Parents are often better at teaching their own children.

 

76. According to the writer, many parents would like their children                       .

A. to do more difficult homework

B. to do homework both at school and at home

C. to have test homework

D. to do homework at school only

77. According to many parents,                       .

A. a lot of homework has not been planned properly

B. children are too lazy to do

C. teachers do not set enough homework.

D. children shouldn’t be given marks for homework

78. Greek parents thought                       .

A. more time should be allowed for homework

B. their children’s homework was useful

C. their children’s homework was useless

D. their children’s homework was too easy

79. In some countries, especially in Europe                       .

A. teachers cannot have their children do homework at weekends

B. few people think homework to children only at weekends

C. most people agree that it is fair to have children do homework at home

D. teachers are allowed to give children homework only at weekends

80. Pick out the statement that is not true                       .

A. Teachers should advise the parents about how to work together with their children at home

B. Only a small number of people think homework is fair.

C. All parents show great interest in their children’s homework

D. Children can do their homework at school and help each other in some schools in Britain.

PART III:READING COMPREHENSION (25 points)

Questions 51-55: You are going to read an extract from a magazine article about psychology. Five paragraphs have been removed from the extract. Choose from the paragraphs A-F the one which fits each gap (51- 55). There is one extra paragraph which you do not need to use. Write your answers  into the box below.

Unless you’re a loner, you’re probably a member of many different groups. Some are long lasting, like your family, while others, such as a football crowd, are temporary. Every group functions in different ways but there are still some common psychological features to any group.

(51)

Being part of a group changes the way you behave. The presence of others has a generally arousing effect on the nervous system. This is natural-you don’t know what they will do. They may move about, speak to you, or even attack you, and your brain has to pay attention to all these messages. Having others around is just distracting. It divides your attention, so you can’t focus on the task in hand.

 

(52)

But when it comes to complex tasks, the prospect of not being evaluated may free you from anxiety, so encouraging you to perform better. To test this, psychologists asked volunteers to carry out a complex computer task in separate rooms. Some were told performance would be evaluated individually – causing performance anxiety – while others were told the results would be averaged with the rest of the group. As expected, the second group did better than the first.

(53)

The problem becomes even worse when individuals are disguised with war paint or uniforms. Analysis shows that the more people there are in a mob, the greater the antisocial behaviour. Being ‘submerged’ within a group does have many negative connotations but it’s not always a bad thing. Instead of thinking about a rowdy mob, think of relaxing, dancing and enjoying yourself at a party where you are also just a part of the crowd.

(54)

But surprisingly, research has shown that the use of this technique by groups isn’t that effective in either the number or quality of ideas generated. You get better results if you set people to work individually on a problem. We also tend to assume that decisions made by groups are better than those made by individuals, which is why we form committees.

(55)

But any group can get a decision badly wrong because their thought processes can go awry. This is a process psychologists call ‘groupthink’. A close-knit group of advisers isolated from argument and criticism can grow to believe they can do no wrong. The group then becomes more important than the individuals who are part of it. Further, a leadership style which concentrates on the group rather than the individual can contribute to this.

For a group and its behaviour are shaped by who is in charge and the roles the other members play. A good front man or woman is persuasive, not directive, communicates and speaks clearly, listens well and appeals to group members’ emotions and feelings as well as thoughts and ideas. Many, but not all, leaders show dominance in the group. But the dominant person in the group doesn’t always make the best leader, and it isn’t necessarily true that having the smartest people always makes for the most successful group.

A. This lack of individual accountability may lead to people letting go of their inhibitions – a process known as ‘deindividuation’. Sometimes this is dangerous, releasing violent and impulsive behaviours that individuals would never dream of indulging in alone.

B. They have a need for power, characterised by talking a lot, wanting to be listened to and to make decisions. In a group it can be easy to spot the dominant people. They make eye contact, point and even touch people but don’t encourage return gestures. Such behaviour studies have been key in shaping business organisation.

C. For example, in general, humans are social animals, that’s why we get together in groups in the first place. Important elements of our individual identity come from being part of a group. Most people enjoy being in a group – it’s a way of forming emotionally satisfying relationships.

D. But it has to be a carefully selected team, not a randomly generated group, if creative decisions are to be made. In fact, theory on team building has shown that it is better if people work in small teams of complementary pairs. Big teams don’t get anything done, even though people like them.

E. So, how does all this stimulation affect achievement? It has been argued that people do better on simple well-rehearsed activities when they’re with others than when they are alone. Also, if their individual efforts within the group are not being monitored, there’s a tendency to relax and merge into the crowd.

F. Another positive feature of groups is that they generate ideas and opinions, and use these to make decisions. That’s why the modern trend in teaching is for students to work in small groups to prepare presentations and why brainstorming is so popular in the work context.

Winter driving is dangerous because it’s so difficult to know what is going to happen and accidents take place so easily. Fog can be waiting to meet you over the top of the hill. Ice might be hiding beneath the melting snow, waiting to send you off the road. The car coming towards you may suddenly slide across the road.

Rule Number One for driving in icy roads is to drive smoothly. Uneven movements can make a car suddenly very difficult to control. So every time you turn the wheel, touch the brakes or increase your speed, you must be as gentle and as slow as possible. Imagine you are driving with a cup of hot coffee on the seat next to you. Drive so that you wouldn’t spill it.

Rule Number Two is to pay attention to what might happen. The more ice there is, the further down the road you have to look. Test how long it takes to stop by gently braking. Remember that you may be driving more quickly than you think. In general, allow double your normal stopping distance when the road is wet, three times this distance in snow, and even more on ice. Try to stay in control of your car at all times and you will avoid trouble.

76. What is the writer trying to do in this text?

A. to complain about bad winter driving.

B. to give information about winter weather.

C. to warn people against driving in winter. 

D. to advise people about safe driving in winter.

77. Why would somebody read this text?

A. to find out about the weather.

B. to get information on driving lessons.

C. to learn about better driving.

D. to decide when to travel.

78. What does the writer think?

A. People should avoid driving in the snow.

B. Drivers should expect problems in winter.

C. People drive too fast in winter.

D. Winter drivers should use their brakes less.

79. Why does the writer talk about a cup of coffee?

A. to explain the importance of smooth movements.

B. because he thinks refreshments are important for drivers

C. because he wants drivers to be more relaxed.

D. to show how it can be spilt.

80. Which traffic sign shows the main idea of the text?

RAIN MAKING

When it rains, it does not always pour. During a typical storm, a (41. COMPARE)                                                                small amount of the lock-up moisture in each cloud reaches the ground as rain. So the idea that human  intervention – a rain dance, perhaps  – might  encourage the sky to  give up a little (42. ADD)                                                                  water has been around since prehistoric times. More recently, would-be rain makers have used a more direct procedure – that of throwing (43. VARY)                    chemicals out of aero-planes in an effort to wring more rain from the clouds, a practice known as “cloud seeding”.

Yet such techniques, which were first developed in the 1940s, are (44. NOTORIETY)                 difficult to evaluate.  It is hard to (45. CERTAIN)       , for example, how much rain would have fallen anyway. So, despite much anecdotal evidence of the advantages of cloud seeding, which has led to its adoption in more than 40 countries around the world, as far as scientists are concerned, results are still (46. CONCLUSIVE)                                           . That could be about to change. For the past three years (47. RESEARCH)             have been carrying out the most extensive and (48. RIGOUR)                         evaluation to date of a revolutionary new technique that will substantially boost the volume of (49. RAIN)                                                                                 .

PART III:READING COMPREHENSION (25 points)

Questions 51-55: You are going to read a magazine article on space travel. Five paragraphs have been removed from the article. Choose from the paragraphs A-G the one which fits each gap (51- 55). There is one extra paragraph which you do not need to use. There is an example at the beginning (0). Write your answers into the box below.

CHEAP ACCESS TO SPACE

Charles Conrad went to the moon with Apollo 12 and circled the Earth in Skylab. But from now on, he is going to aim high for himself. His company, Universal Space Lines, hopes to produce a more economic rocket that will be able to go in space again and again.

(0) 

NASA, the U.S, government-owned space program, plans to develop such a rocket. However, the immediate priority is missions to Mars, which will require different technology. So it is more likely that people outside the NASA program will develop re-useable rocket design. Rick Tumlinson runs an independent organization called the Space Frontier Foundation and firmly believes that it is time for business to get involved.

(51)                     

So Tumlinson is also in business to prove a point. Space is our destiny, he says, so why not get on with it a bit more eagerly? To this end, the SFF is holding a conference in Los Angeles shortly, to be called Space: Open for Business.

(52)                     

Another company, Kistler Aerospace, has similar plans; “Our goal is to become a delivery service to low Earth orbit that will radically re-align the economics of doing business in space. Satellites will be our parcels: our vehicles will be operated in repeated flights with air freights efficiency.”

(53)                     

Their own view is that it is impossible for NASA, which is government-owned, to offer an “open frontier”. This is not a matter of budgets or schedules, but of fundamental purpose and design. NASA is “elitist and

 

exclusive”, whereas the SFF believes in opportinities for everyone “a future of endlessly expanding new choices”.

(54)                     

Of course, the ex-astronaut and businessman Charles Conrad agrees. “I’m trying to get affordable space transportation up and operative so that everybody can enjoy space. And by the way, the Japanese are hard at work building a space hotel.”

(55)                     

If he is right, mass space travel will have arrived by 2050 and space tourism will have become a viable industry. More importantly, the human race will have made serious progress in crossing that final frontier.

A. Companies will always be looking for profit. For this reason, the SFF is not in favor of American missions to Mars, claiming that there’s nothing in it for investors. At the same time, they do accept that these missions could bring scientific benefits.

B. He sees the NASA program as a bit of a dinosaur. “25 years after the Wright Brothers, people could buy a commercial plane ticket … but many years after landing on the moon, we sat around watching old astronauts on TV talking about the good old days.”

C. In 1997, the SFF ran a survey on the Internet, called “Cheap Access to Space”, where it asked American taxpayers for their views on the U.S space program and on what American’s future priorities should be in space transportation.

D. U.S government officials don’t see the future for space tourism. Here again, private companies may well prove them wrong. David Ashford, director of Bristol Spaceplanes Limited, once said that space tourism would begin ten years after people stopped laughing at the concept. Recently, he added this striking comment: “people have stopped laughing.”

E. Charles Conrad is due to speak there. But his company is in fact only one of several that already have blueprints for getting into space and back cheaply. Rotary is working on something that would be launched like a rocket but return like a helicopter. Pioneer Rocket plane believes there could be a million dollar market in delivering packages from one side of the planet to the other in an hour.

F. They would like to see “irreversible human settlement” in space as soon as possible and maintain that this will only happen through free enterprise. “Building buildings and driving trucks is not what astronauts should be doing; that’s what the private sector does.”

G. “Cheap” is an important word in  space technology nowadays and re-useable rockets will be  a key  way of controlling costs. They will deliver things to orbits, bring stuff back to Earth and then go up again, perhaps with machinery for a space factory, or even carrying tourists.

CRITICISM

It can take a long time to become successful in your chosen field, however (56)                                                 you are. One thing you have to be (57)                                                 of is that you will face criticism along the way. The world is (58)                                                      of people who would rather say something negative than positive. If you’ve made up your (59)                                                                            to achieve a certain goal, such as writing a novel, don’t let the negative criticism of others (60)                                                          you from reaching your target, and let constructive criticism have a positive effect on your work.

Questions 66-75: Read the passage carefully, then fill in each blank with ONE suitable word. Write your answers into the box below.

Maybe you recycle cans, glass, and paper. Do you know that nature recycles, too? One of the things nature (66)                       is water. Water goes from oceans, lakes, and rivers into the air. Water falls from the air as (67)                             or snow. Rain and snow eventually find their way back to the oceans. Nature’s recycling program for water is (68)        the water cycle.

The water cycle has four stages: storage, evaporation, precipitation, and runoff. Water on Earth gets stored in oceans, lakes, rivers, ice, and even underground. Water goes from storage into the atmosphere by a

(69)                 called evaporation. When water evaporates, it changes from a liquid (70)      a gas,

called water vapor. Water vapor goes up into (71)                 atmosphere.  Water  returns  to  the Earth as

precipitation in rain or snow by changing into drops of water when the air (72)                                                                                                                                 cold enough.

Clouds are collections of water droplets. Most precipitation (73)              _ into the oceans and goes right back into storage.

Water that falls on land  always flows from (74)                 places to lower ones. This flow is called runoff. Water from land flows into streams. Streams join (75)                                                                                                        to make rivers and eventually the water flows into storage in the oceans. Then the water cycle starts all over again.

                                                BENJAMIN FRANKLIN

Few people can embody the spirit of early America as much as Benjamin Franklin. He lived through almost the whole of the eighteenth century, being born six years after, and dying ten years before it ended. In this time he saw the American colonies grow from tiny settlements into a nation, and he also contributed much to the development of the new state.

 

At the age of 17 Franklin ran away to Philadelphia. He had already received some training as a printer’s apprentice, and this helped him seven years later, with his first publication, the Pennsylvania Gazette. He also received a contract to do government printing work, which helped him to rise from his poor background to become a successful entrepreneur. Some of his experience in business was shared in his famous Poor Richard’s Almanak, which established his reputation throughout the American colonies. In another of his works, the Autobiography, which was written toward the end of his life, he shows the same quiet common sense.

 

He was deeply interested in science and natural history, and his experiments with electricity and lightning led directly to the invention of the lightning rod. He was also interested in improving the conditions of his fellow men. He was involved in a number of projects in his native Philadelphia, including the setting up of a library, a university, a philosophical society, and–because he was a pragmatic man–a fire prevention service. In 1753 he became Postmaster–General of the colonies. Through this experience he began to develop the idea that the colonies of North America should be a single nation. Later, he went to London to try to persuade the British government to change the conditions, especially the taxes, that later led the American colonists into rebellion.

 

Whatever Benjamin Franklin’s personal feelings about the rebellion of the American states, he worked hard to make it succeed. As ambassador to France, he encouraged the French to help George Washington. After the war he attended the American constitutional congress. This was his last contribution, for he died later that year. He is still fondly remembered by Americans as one of the creators of the United States.

Line                      Cooperation is the common endeavor of two or more people to perform a task or reach a jointly cherished goal. Like competition and conflict, there are different forms of cooperation, based on group organization and attitudes.

In the first form, known as primary cooperation, group and individual fuse. The group contains nearly all of each individual’s life. The rewards of the group’s work are shared with each member. There is an identity of individual, group, and task performed. Means and goals become one, for cooperation itself is valued.

While primary cooperation is most often characteristic of preliterate societies, secondary cooperation is most often characteristic of many modern societies. In secondary cooperation, individuals devote only part of their lives to the group. Cooperation itself is not a value. Most members of the group feel loyalty, but the welfare of the group is not the first consideration. Members perform tasks so that they can separately enjoy the fruits of their cooperation in the form of salary, prestige, or power. Business offices and professional athletic teams are examples of secondary cooperation.

In the third type, called tertiary cooperation or accommodation, latent conflict underlies the shared work. The attitudes of the cooperating parties are purely opportunistic; the organization is loose and fragile. Accommodation involves common means to achieve antagonistic goals; it breaks down when the common means cease to aid each party in reaching its goals. This is not, strictly speaking, cooperation at all, and hence the somewhat contradictory term antagonistic cooperation is sometimes used for this relationship.

11. What is the author’s main purpose in the first paragraph of the passage?

A. To explain how cooperation differs from competition and conflict

B. To show the importance of group organization and attitudes

D. Every member shares the reward of the group’s work.

15. According to the passage, why do people join groups that practice secondary cooperation?

A. To experience the satisfaction of cooperation
