Underline the mistakes and correct them in the space provided. Example: 0. was  is It was the human factor that contributes to the absolute majority of road accidents which U U involves the tremendous toll of fatalities each year. Other, less decisive, causes are vehicle malfunctions or road shortcomings. Speeding motorists are notorious for failing to give way at junctions, misjudging the situation on the road or being unable to accurate estimate the distance while overtaking the “snail pacers” ahead. Drinkers whom settle behind the wheel after one glass or two may be running the risk of causing a tragedy through their impaired perception, which is not such rare a case again. Unfortunately, it is much simpler to introduce the necessary alterations in the traffic system that change the behavioral patterns of drivers. There are voices that more severe disciplinary resolutions ought to be put into practice if the vehicle users are to benefit with the greater security on the road. The idea of producing safe road users through pre-school parental instructions or through incorporating the safety regulations into school curriculum have been widely acclaimed in many communities and is expected yielding the required results as the first step in bettering the qualifications of the future drivers and acquainting them with the potential hazards that may raise on the road. 1. 2.

It’s the light from this red ring which is reflected back to the dark Earth from the moon’s surface. In ancient times, long (5) ________ any of this was understood, the lunar eclipse was known (6) ________a blood moon and was thought to be an omen of disaster. Total eclipses can only occur when there is a full moon, and then only if it is lined up with the Earth in a particular way. (7) ________easily obscured by cloud cover, blood moons Page 4/7
  5. are fairly common, and it is relatively easy to calculate where and when you might be (8) ________ to see one. For example, in 1504 Christopher Columbus was stranded in Jamaica and in dire need of provisions, but the local inhabitants were reluctant to help. However, Columbus knew that a lunar eclipse would occur on 29 February. Therefore, the day before, he warned local leaders that the moon would disappear (9) ________ they helped him.

(9)________, the widespread use of new technologies has gone hand-in-hand with an increased use of paper. Research into the relationship between paper use and the use of computers has shown that the general (10)________ is likely to be one of growth and interdependence. However, the costs involved in paper production, in terms of the world's land, water and air resources, are high. This raises some important questions.

A. providing B. delivering C. contributing D. giving 4. A. task B. operation C. service D. role 5. A. time B. instance C. date D. occasion 6.

A. method B. order C. trend D. system Part 3: Read the following passage and choose the best answers. We live in a world of tired, sleep deprived people. In his book Counting Sheep, Paul Martin – a behavioral biologist – describes a society which is just too busy to sleep and which does not give sleeping the importance it deserves. Modern society has invented reasons not to sleep. We are now a 24/7 society where shops and services must be available all hours. We spend longer hours at work than we used to, and more time getting to work. Mobile phones and email allow us to stay in touch round the clock and late-night TV and the Internet tempt us away from our beds. When we need more time for work or pleasure, the easy solution is to sleep less. The average adult sleeps only 6.2 hours a Page 5/7
  6. night during the week, whereas research shows that most people need eight or even eight and a half hours’ sleep to feel at their best. Nowadays, many people have got used to sleeping less than they need and they live in an almost permanent state of ‘sleep debt’. Until the invention of the electric light in 1879 our daily cycle of sleep used to depend on the hours of daylight. People would get up with the sun and go to bed at nightfall. But nowadays our hours of sleep are mainly determined by our working hours (or our social life) and most people are woken up artificially by an alarm clock. During the day caffeine, the world’s most popular drug, helps to keep us awake. 75% of the world’s population habitually consume caffeine, which up to a point masks the symptoms of sleep deprivation. What does a chronic lack of sleep do to us? As well as making us irritable and unhappy as humans, it also reduces our motivation and ability to work. This has serious implications for society in general. Doctors, for example, are often chronically sleep deprived, especially when they are on ‘night call’, and may get less than three hours’ sleep. Lack of sleep can seriously impair their mood, judgment, and ability to take decisions. Tired engineers, in the early hours of the morning, made a series of mistakes with catastrophic results. On our roads and motorways lack of sleep kills thousands of people every year. Tests show that a tired driver can be just as dangerous as a drunken driver. However, driving when drunk is against the law but driving when exhausted isn’t. As Paul Martin says, it is very ironic that we admire people who function on very little sleep instead of criticizing them for being irresponsible. Our world would be a much safer, happier place if everyone, whatever their job, slept eight hours a night. 1. According to the passage, which of the following statements is TRUE about Paul Martin? A. He shows his concern for sleep deprivation in modern society. B. He gives an interesting account of a sleepless society. C. He is a scientist who is chronically deprived of sleep. D. He describes the modern world as a place without insomnia. 2. The phrase “round the clock” in the second paragraph is similar in meaning to______. A. all day and night B. surrounded with clocks C. during the daytime D. having a round clock 3. The writer mentions the Internet in the passage as______. A. a temptation that prevents us from sleeping B. an easy solution to sleep deprivation C. an ineffective means of communication D. a factor that is not related to sleep deprivation 4. According to the third paragraph, which of the following statements is NOT TRUE? A. Our social life has no influence on our hours of sleep. B. The sun obviously determined our daily routines. C. The electric light was invented in the 19th century. P P D. The electric light has changed our daily cycle of sleep. 5. The word “which” in the third paragraph refers to______. A. reaching a point B. masking the symptom C. the world’s population D. caffeine consumption 6. Which of the following is TRUE, according to the last paragraph? A. Doctors ‘on night call’ do not need more than three hours of sleep a day. B. Our motivation decreases with the bigger number of hours we sleep. C. Sleep deprivation has negative effects on both individuals and society. Page 6/7
  7. D. Thousands of people are killed every day by drunken drivers. 7. The word “catastrophic” in the last paragraph probably means______. A. bound to bring satisfaction B. becoming more noticeable C. causing serious damage or loss D. likely to become worthless 8. Which of the following would the writer of the passage approve of? A. Our world would be a much safer place without drinkers. B. Both drunken drivers and sleep-deprived people should be criticized. C. There is no point in criticizing irresponsible people in our society. D. We certainly can function well even when we hardly sleep. 9. All of the following are mentioned as those whose performance is affected by ‘sleep debt’ EXCEPT_____. A. doctors B. drivers C. biologists D. engineers 10. Which of the following could best serve as the title of the passage? A. Accident Prevention: Urgent! B. Sleep Deprivation: Causes and Effects C. A Society of Sleepless People D. A Well-known Biologist E. WRITING Part 1. Rewrite each of the following sentences in such a way that it has a similar meaning to the original one. You must not change the word given. 1.
