61. Questions 61- 68:
Chester Arthur, the twenty-first President of the United States, was
an unlikely holder of the highest office in the land. Born in Vermont
in 1830, he was son of an Irish immigrant father and a New
Hampshire mother. After becoming a lawyer in New York, he joined
the Republican Party and eventually came to hold a number of state
offices there, including a position as head of the New York Customs
House. Though personally honest, Arthur's administration was
marred by corrupt practices, and he was removed from office in
When James Garfield was elected as the Republican Party's
presidential candidate in 1880, Arthur, who belonged to a faction that
had supported the renomination of President Grant, was offered the
Vice-Presidency as a concilatory gesture. Arthur accepted, and then,
in 1881, was elevated to the Presidency following Garfield's
In view of his far-from-unblemished record and his lack of strong
political support, even within his own party, Arthur's move to the
White House was viewed with great concern by many Americans,
but, to the astonishment of most, his administration proved to be a
competent and honest one. However, he never was elected President
in his own right, being defeated for the nomination at his party's
convention in 1884, and dying in November two years later of
Bright's disease during the presidency of a Democrat, Grover

69. Questions 69-75
Horace Pippin, as an African-American soldier during World War I,
was wounded in his right arm. He discovered, however, that by
keeping his right wrist steady with his left hand, he could paint and
draw. Pippin was not trained, but his artistic sensitivity and intuitive
feel for two-dimensional design and the arrangement of color and
patterns made him one of the finest Primitive artists America has
Pippin did a series of paintings on the abolitionist John Brown and
one on his war experiences, but he shied away from social issues for
the most part and achieved his greatest success with scenes of the
people and places of his hometown of West Chester, Pennsylvania.
His "Domino Players", featuring four women gathered around a
wooden table in a simple kitchen setting, is an excellent example of his
rural domestic scenes.

76. Questions 76-80
A preventive medicine specialist may have found the reason for the
"addictive" properties of regular exercise. The finding may also
explain why athletes often fail to notice an injury until after the
competition is over. Dr. Lee S. Berk has found that persons who
exercise regularly produce high levels of a natural opiate called beta-
endorphin in response to strenuous activity. This substance, a
hormone produced by brain and the pituitary gland, increases pain
tolerance, counters stress, and imparts a feeling of well-being. In his
study of six men and six women who were tested on a treadmill, those
who jogged regularly and were physically fit produced beta-
endprphin more rapidly and in far greater amounts than those who
were usually sedentary. After the activity was stopped, beta-
endorphin vevels drops back to normal. In the nonrunners, only a
small rise in beta-endorphin occured while they exercised. However, a
larger increase in beta-endorphin production was noted some time
after the activity was finished, when it was ineffective. Dr.Berk noted
that beta-endorphin production may also account for other benefits
of vigorous exercise, sich as its ability to lower blood pressure and
suppress appetite, both of which are known effects of the hormone.
"Beta-endorphin may also explain why people become addicted to
exercise," Dr. Berk said.

76: According to the passage, all of the following are direct effects of
beta-endorphin, EXCEPT

reduced stress
a feeling of well-being
an increased tolerance of pain
improved physical strength
77. In persons who exercise regularly, beta-endorphin is produced

while they are exercising
after vigorous activity is over
as soon as an injury occurs
whenever their blood pressure rises
78. How many people participated in the study?

79. According to the passage, which of the following is true of people
who get no strenuous physical exercise?
They usually have high blood pressure.
They do not generally feel well.
They produce little beta-endorphin.
They outnumber those who jog regularly.
80. It can be inferred from the passage that which of the following
people might benefit the most from the effects of beta-endorphin?

Those who want to lose weight.
Those addicted to opiates.
Those who work inefficiently.
Those with low blood pressure
81. Questions 81-90

Botany, the study of plants, occupies a peculiar position in the history
of human knowledge. For many thousands of years, it was the one
field of awareness about which humans had anything more than the
vaguest of insights. It is impossible to know today just what our Stone
Age ancestors knew about plants, but from what we can observe of
preindustrial societies that still exist, a detailed learning of plants and
their properties must be extremely ancient. This is logical. Plants are
the basis of the food pyramid for all living things, even for other
plants. They have always been enormously important to the welfare
of people, not only for food, but alsoo for clothing, weapons, tools,
dyes, medicines, shelter and a great many other purposes. Tribes
living today in the jungles of the Amazon recognize literally hundreds
of plants and know many properties of each. To them, botany, as
such, has no name and is probably not even recognized as a special
branch of "knowledge" at all.
Unfortunately, the more industrialized we become the farther away
we move from direct contact with plants, and the less distinct our
knowldge of botany grows. Yet everyone comes unconsciously on an
amazing amount of botanical knowledge, and few people will fail to
recognize a rose, an apple, or an orchid. When our Neolithic
ancestors, living in the Middle East about 10,000 years ago,
discovered that certain grasses could be harvested and their seeds
planted for richer yields the next season, the first great step in a new
association of plants and humans was taken. Grains were discovered
and from them flowed the marvel of agriculture: cultivated crops.
From then on, humans would increasingly take their living from the
controlled production of a few plants, rather than getting a little here
and a little there from many varieties that grew wild - and the
accumulated knowledge of tens of thousands of years of experience
and intimacy with plants in the wild would begin to fade away.

81: Which of the following assumptionsabout early humans is
expressed in the passage?
They probably had extensive knowledge of plants.
They divided knowledge into well-defined fields.
They did not enjoy the study of botany.
They placed great importance on owndership of property.
82. The word "peculiar" in the passage is closest in meaning to ....

83. What does the comment "This is logical" in the passage mean?

There is no clear way to determine the extent of our ancestors'
knowledge of plants.
It is not surprising that early humans had a detailed knowledge of
It is reasonable to assume that our ancestors behaved very much like
people in preindustrial societies.
Human knowledge of plants is well organized and very detailed.
84. The phrase "properties of each" in the passage refers to each...

85. According to the passage, why has general knowledge of botany

People no longer value plants as a useful resource.
Botany is not recognized as a special branch of science.
Research is unable to keep up with the increasing number of plants.
Direct contact with a variety of plants had decreased.
86. In the passage, what is the author's purpose in mentioning "a
rose, an apple, or an orchid?"

To make the passage more poetic.
To cite examples of plants that are attractive.
To give botanical examples that most readers will recognize
To illustrate the diversity of botanical life.
87. According to the passage, what was the first great step toward the
practice of agriculture?

The invention of agricultural implementations and machinery.
The development of a system of names for plants.
The discovery of grasses that could be harvested and replanted.
The changing diets of early humans.
88. The word "controlled" in the passage is closest in meaning to...

89. The relationship between botany and agriculture is similar to the
relationship between zoology (the study of animals) and ...

deer hunting
bird watching
sheep raising
horseback riding
90. Where in the passage does the author describe the benefits people
derive from plants?

Lines 1-2
Lines 8-12
Lines 14-16
Lines 19-22
91. Questions 91-100

We live in a scientific age, which means that everything we do is
based on rational decisions and careful investigation of the facts.
Nobody is given a job because his eyes are blue, even though we
sometimes refer to the boss's favourite as his "blue-eyed boy."
Nobody buys a house because the moon shines through the bedroom
windows on certain nights in the month. We would not dream of
marrying someone simply because of the shape of their fingernails.
No, we all agree that we act, or try to act, sensibly and as a result of
using our brains.
If this is the case, I should like to know what makes so many people
read the horoscopes which are to be found in practically every
newspaper and magazine in the country. They will tell you, of course,
that they do not believe a word of it, that it is all nonsense, just a bit
of fun. And yet horoscopes are big business. There is a good living to
be made from writing "professional" horoscopes for people who are
prepared to provide their full name, and the date, time and exact
place of birth, together with a handsome fee. I recently got someone
to do my horoscope. (I did not pay for it, so to that extent I feel
superior!) and I would not mind reproducing part of it for you to see.
I say "part of it" because it is very long and you might get bored after
a while, although the lady who did it for me asserts that I only want
you to see the bits that are most flattering.
Now, of course, I do not believe in what she wrote, and I think she
describes my character accurately for the simple reason that she
knows me very well anyway. But I have been unnerved more than a
few times in my life by being identified at once as a "Gemini" type by
people who did not know anything about me, except what they had
been able to learn from a short acquaintance.
Similarly, I once had my palm read by a young lady who did not
know me at all. Please understand that I did not really believe in
palmistry at the time. My reason for letting her read my palm was
that she was a very pretty young lady, and it seemed an excellent
excuse for holding her hand, or rather letting her hold mine, and
getting to know her better. Our relationship, I regret to say, did not
develope owing to the sudden arrival of her regullar boy-friend, but
she had had enough time by then to do a character sketch of me that
was devastatingly accurate.
I was so impressed by her performance that I got another lady (who
was not quite so young or pretty, so at least I had no ulterior motive
this time) to show me how to interpret the lines of the hand, and other
features such as hand shape, relative length of the fingers and so on. I
tried out my new-found knowledge in a number of light-hearted
situations, but it soon became something more than a mere party
trick. I have sometimes been so accurate in my interpretations of the
good and bad features of character that I have unintentionally
offended people I liked.
It is important to distinguish between reading hands to interpret
character, and reading hands to predict an individual's future; the
former seems much more likely to have some basis of truth than the
latter. All the same, we have all met people who have been told things
about their future by gypsies, clairvoyants and the like, and who
swear that these things have come true. Many quite ordinary people,
who make no special claims to have the gift of foresight, have had
premonitions of such misfortunes as illness, deaths in the family and
accidents; so many, in fact, that there must be more to this business of
foretelling the future than meets the eye.
The paradox is that in this scientific age, when we claim to believe
only what we can prove, we go on reading horoscopes or visiting the
fortune teller at the fair, which are almost certainly worthless; but at
the same time, we refuse to take seriously the few scientific
investigations that have been made into what we might call the
paranormal or the supernatural. Obviously, we want to have our
cake and eat it. Personally, I remain completely sceptical about
astrology, but I am convinced that our minds and our bodies are
much mroe complex than we realise. Therefore; it is foolish to reject
some kinds of human experience just because at the moment we
cannot find any rational scientific explanation for them.

horoscopes and the fact that...

most people say they are nonsense.
we live in a scientific age.
newsspaper horoscopes are not scientifically prepared.
they are quite expensive when they are done professionally.

even quite ordinary people can sometimes do it.

because he has...

placed too much emphasis on their bad features.

investigation into the paranormal is one of...

indifference - we really don't care very much.
amazement - we are surprised by what is revealed.
interest - we are fascinated by the subject.
incomprehension - we really don't understand what it is all about.
100. The writer's views about the paranormal can be summarised as
follows: he thinks that we should...

make more scientific investigations into such phenomena.
remain completely sceptical about such things.
not dismiss the paranormal as nonsense just because we cannot
explain everything scientifically at the time.
be able to explain all paranormal phenomena in terms of natural
