Part C. Reading Comprehension

Directions: In this part of the test, you will read two passages. Each passage is followed by four questions. Answer the questions by choosing the best choice (1), (2), (3), or (4). Then mark your answer sheet.

PASSAGE 1:

I am a big fan of trying to save the environment, and this month is the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) annual Earth Hour. Earth Hour is an event where you turn off all non-essential lights and power between 8-9 pm; things like your TV, computer and console. However, you do not just sit at home in the dark for an hour. Instead, people gather in groups and have fun without using power. Things like dancing, fireworks and musical performances are popular and it is very fun to take part.

Many celebrities also take part in Earth Hour and this year is very important as it is the tenth year of the project. Earth Hour is not just about saving energy; people involved in Earth Hour have also planted a forest in Uganda, built solar panels in India and passed a law to protect the sea in Argentina.

I have taken part in Earth Hour every year for the last five years and I have been part of lots of activities at school and at university. Last year, for example, my university had an outdoor cycle cinema. At the cycle cinema, the only way to keep watching the film is to keep pedaling your bike, if everyone stops, then the screen turns off! Luckily, there were many of us to help keep the movie going and we took turns. Although it was very cold outside at night, we had hot chocolate and blankets for the people who were not cycling. Everyone who was there had a lot of fun.

۹۳- What is the author’s main purpose in the passage?

۱) To introduce a particular event

۲) To compare some fun activities

۳) To trace the origin of Earth Hour

۴) To describe some ways of saving energy

Answer option: 1

۹۴- According to the passage, people who take part in Earth Hour ……… .

۱) are especially interested in protecting nature in Uganda, India and Argentina

۲) must not stay away from home between 8 and 9 p.m.

۳) use less electricity for a certain period of time

۴) turn off all lights for one hour

Answer option: 3

۹۵- It is suggested in the passage that at the cycle cinema ……… .

۱) the screen turned off a few times

۲) not everyone knew how to ride a bike

۳) the author had to pedal his/her bike nonstop

۴) cold did not make anyone feel uncomfortable

Answer option: 4

۹۶- Which of the following best describes the author’s attitude towards Earth Hour?

۱) Annoyed

۲) Uncertain

۳) Surprised

۴) Amused

Answer option: 4

PASSAGE 2:

How many planets are there in our galaxy? That is a tricky question to answer. Are there other planets that support life? That is exactly what the Kepler mission hopes to discover. NASA launched the Kepler space telescope, designed to find habitable planets, in 2009. So far it has discovered five new Earth-sized planets beyond our solar system. These planets are hotter than the Earth – much too hot for life as we know it. The Kepler team predict that they will need at least three years (and possibly longer) to find an Earth-like planet.

The simplest requirement for a planet to have life (carbon-based life like on Earth) is for there to be liquid water (not frozen or gas) so the distance from the planet’s sun and therefore temperature are important. There also needs to be the correct amount of air. If a planet is as small as Mars (half the size of Earth) its weak gravity means that it cannot hold on to air molecules. If a planet is Neptune sized (four times bigger than Earth) it has very strong gravity and too much air. So size matters too.

The cost of the mission is approximately six hundred million dollars. It is scheduled to observe until 2013 but this could be extended. Will we be sad if we discover we are alone in our galaxy or happy if we find that we share it with other life forms?

۹۷- What does the passage mainly discuss?

۱) Features of five new Earth-sized planets

۲) An endeavor to find Earth-like planets

۳) Our solar system and its planets

۴) Making a space telescope

Answer option: 2

۹۸- The passage suggests that the Kepler mission ……… .

۱) was inspired by another space mission

۲) was not finished immediately after it started

۳) did not seem to be as successful as other space missions

۴) found planets with the same temperature as that of the Earth

Answer option: 2

۹۹- Which of the following best describes the function of the underlined sentence in paragraph 2?

۱) It describes a situation where the condition mentioned in the previous sentence cannot be met.

۲) It provides the definition of a word mentioned in the previous sentence.

۳) It provides a solution to a problem described in the previous sentence.

۴) It draws a conclusion from the previous sentence.

Answer option: 1

۱۰۰- There is enough information in the passage to answer which of the following questions?

۱) How many planets are there in our galaxy?

۲) How can NASA reduce the cost of the Kepler mission?

۳) What characteristics does a planet need to have in order to be able to support life?

۴) Will we be sad if we discover we are alone in our galaxy or happy if we find that we share it with other life forms?
