As far back as 700 B.C, man has talked about children to be cared for by wolves
Romulus and Remus, the legend twin founders of Rome; were purported to have been cared for
b y wolves. It is believed that why a she-wolf loses her litter, she seeks a human child to take its
place. This seeming preposterous idea did not become credible until the late nineteenth century
when a French doctor actually had found a naked ten- year-old boy wandering in the woods. He
did not walk erect, could not speak intelligibly, or could lie relate to people. He only growled and
stared of them. Finally the doctor won the boy's confidence and began to work with them. After
many long years of devoted and patient instruction, the doctor was able to have the boy to clothe
and feed himself, recognize and utter a number of word, as well as write letters and form words.

B /. Read the text and choose the best answer :
The planet Earth is 4600 million years old. It is difficult for us to think about such an
enormous length of time because it has little meaning for us. We can, however simplify idea to
make it more understandable. We can compare the planet Earth to a person of forty-six years of
age. Nothing is known about the first seven years of this person's life. Very little information
exists about the middle period either. It was only at the age of forty-two that the Earth began to
flower. Dinosaurs and great reptiles did not appear until one year ago. When the planet was
forty-five mammals only arrived eight months ago. In the middle of last week, man-like apes
became ape-like men and began to communicate with each other. Last weekend, the Ice Age
covered the Earth. Modern man has only been around for four hours. During the last hour man
discovered agriculture. The Industrial revolution and the rise of large cities began just sixty
seconds ago.
During that short time, modern man has made a rubbish of the Earth. In one minute, he
has increased his numbers to terrible proportions and has caused the death of hundreds of species
of animals. He has robbed and destroyed the planet in his search for fuels. Now he stands, like a
violent spoilt child delighted at the speed of his rise to power, on the edge of the final mass
destruction and of killing all t he life which exists in the solar’s system .
1. It would appear that the main danger ahead is that
A) man will use up all the fuels
B) more species of animal may die out
C) man will destroy everything on Earth
D) there will be a population explosion
2. The author is mainly interested in
A) the effects of farming
B) the period before the last Ice Age
C) what has happened since the Industrial Revolution
D) the time when man first evolved from apes
3. The author's general view of man seems to be that
A) he has no right to be so destructive
B) he will be able to control the environment
C) he has learned a lot from past mistakes
D) he has been the most successful animal
4. The passage tells us that
4
A) life on Earth began relatively recently
B) a great deal is known about how the Earth were created
C) more is known about the first part of the Earth's life than the middle part.
D) scientists are well-informed about the middle part of the Earth's life.
5. We are informed by the author that
A) the dinosaurs appeared during the middle period
B) mammals and great reptiles both appeared at the same time
C) ape-like men appeared before the last Ice Age
D) there were more than forty-five kinds of great reptiles

C /. You are going to read a passage about arts. Some paragraphs have been
removed from the article. Choose from the paragraphs A – G the one which fits each gap
(1-5). There is one extra paragraph which you do not need to use. There is an example at
the beginning (0)
Looking at Art
Art communicates to us primarily through our eyes. We look at art, and we try to find
some meaning in the experience. If we are to begin to think about art more seriously, we might
do well to become more aware of the process of seeing itself.

E
0
Science tells us that seeing is a mode of perception, which is the recognition and
interpretation of sensory data – in other words, how information comes in our eyes (ears, nose,
taste buds, fingertips), and what we make of it.

1

We can take great pleasure in merely looking at art, just as we take pleasure in the view
of a distant mountain range or watching the sun set over the ocean. But art, unlike nature, is a
human creation.


2

The understanding of process – the how – often contributes quite a lot to our appreciation
of art.

3

Knowing the place of a work of art in history – what went before and came after – can
also deepen your understanding. Artists learn to make art by studying the achievements of the
past and observing the efforts of their contempo raries. They adapt ideas to serve their own needs
and then bequeath those ideas to future generations of artists. The more you know about this
living current of artistic energy, the more interesting each work of art will become.


4

An artist may create a specific work for any of a thousand reasons. An awareness of the
why may give some insights as well. Looking at Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, it might help you
to know that Van Gogh was intrigued by the belief that people journeyed to a star after their
5
death, and that there they continued their lives. “Just as we take the train to get to Tarascon or
Rouen”, he wrote in a letter, “we take death to reach a star”.
5


But no matter how much you study, Van Gogh’s painting will never mean for you exactly
what it meant for him, nor should it. An artist’s work grows from a lifetime of experiences,
thoughts, and emotions; no one else can duplicate them exactly. Great works of art hold many
meanings. The greatest of them seem to speak anew to each generation and to each attentive
observer.

6


A. It is one of the many ways we express oursselves and attempt to communicate. A work
of art is the product of human intelligence, and we can meet it with our own intelligence on
equal footing. This is where study comes in.

B. If you understand why painting in watercolor may be different from painting in oil,
why clay responds differently to the artist’s hands than does wood or glass, why a stone building
has different structural needs than one made of poured concr ete – you will have a richer
appreciation of the artist’s expression.

C. In visual perception our eyes take in information in the form of the light patterns; the
brain pocesses these patterns to give them meaning. The machanics of perception work much the
same way for everyone, yet in a given situation we do not all see the same things.

D. The most important thing is that some works of art come to mean something for you,
that your own experiences, thoughts, and emotions find a place them, for then you will have
made them live.

E. What is it to look?

F. The tree that rises so dramatically in the foreground of the painting is a cypress, which
has aften served as a symbol of both death and eternal life. This knowledge might help you to
understand why Van Gogh felt so strongly about the night sky, and what his painting might have
meant to him.

G. Working backwards, on this basis, they constructed a table of historical
givergence.Using this kind of table, estimates have been given for the possible point of
divergence of the languages in many of the world’s families.

H. For example, Matisse assumed that his audience would know that Venus was the
ancient Roman goddess of love. But he also hoped that they would be familiar with one Venus
in particular, a famous Greek statue known as the Venus de Milo. Knowing the Greek work
deepens our pleasure in Matisse’s version, for we see that in “carving” his Venus out of a sheet
of white paper, he evokes the way a long- ago sculptor carved her out of a block of white marble.
