There are strict standards for the preparation of school meals, which have to include one portion of fruit and one of vegetables, as well as meat, a dairy item and starchy food like bread or pasta. Lunchboxes (68) ......... by researchers contained sweet drinks, crisps and chocolate bars. Children consume twice as much sugar (69) ......... they should at lunchtime. The research will provide a better understanding of why the percentage of overweight students in Britain has (70) ....... in the last decade.

It is difficult to imagine that at one time its harbour (77) ......... to be visited by over 2,000 ships a week, and that the huge warehouses along the quayside would have (78) ......... full of spices and silks, jewels and tea. The old city centre is small, which (79) ......... it very easy to explore (80) ......... foot. A river neatly divides the town, (81) ......... only physically but in spirit, too. On one side, you find many grand houses, but on crossing the river, you find yourself in ancient Chinatown, where you really take a step back into the past. It is great fun to wander through the colourful, noisy backstreets. As well as having shops that sell a wide range of clothes and shoes, some of these streets are also famous (82) ......... high quality antiques.

III. Read the passage below and choose the best answer to each question. Because writing has become so important in our culture, we sometimes think of it as more real than speech. A little thought, however, will show why speech is primary and writing secondary to language. Human beings have been writing (as far as we can tell from surviving evidence) for at least 5,000 years; but they have been talking for much longer, doubtless ever since there have been human beings. When writing did develop, it was derived from and represented speech, although imperfectly. Even today there are spoken languages that have no written form. Furthermore, we all learn to talk well before we learn to write; any human child who is not severely handicapped physically or mentally will learn to talk: a normal human being cannot be prevented from doing so. On the other hand, it takes a special effort to learn to write. In the past many intelligent and useful members of society did not acquire the skill, and even today many who speak languages with writing systems never learn to read or write, while some who learn the rudiments of those skills do so only imperfectly. To affirm the primacy of speech over writing is not, however, to disparage the latter. One advantage writing has over speech is that it is more permanent and makes possible the records that any civilization must have. Thus, if speaking makes us human, writing makes us civilized. 84. We sometimes think of writing as more real than speech because ......... A. it has become very important in our culture B. people have been writing since there have been human beings C. writing is secondary to language D. human beings have been writing for at least 5,000 years 85. The author of the passage argues that ......... A. writing has become too important in today’s society B. speech is more basic to language than writing C. everyone who learns to speak must learn to write D. all languages should have a written form 5
  6. 86. Normal human beings ......... A. learn to write before learning to talk B. learn to talk before learning to write C. learn to talk after learning to write D. learn to write and to talk at the same time 87. According to the passage, writing ......... A. is imperfect, but less so than speech B. represents speech, but not perfectly C. developed from imperfect speech D. is represented perfectly by speech 88. In the author’s judgment, ......... A. writing has more advantages than speech B. speech is essential but writing has important benefits C. speech conveys ideas less accurately than writing does D. writing is more real than speech 89. Which of the following is NOT true? A. Writing has become so important in our culture. B. It is easy to acquire the writing skill. C. Writing represents speech, but not perfectly. D. Speech is essential but writing has important benefits. 90. The word “advantage” in the last paragraph most closely means ......... A. benefit B. rudiments C. domination D. skill 84. .................... 85. ................ 86. ................ 87. ................. 88. .................... 89. ................ 90. ................ SECTION D: WRITING Finish the second sentence in such a way that it has the same meaning as the one printed before it. 91. Steve said to Mike, “Don’t touch the electric wires”.

It has a rich, colourful history and many parts of the city have hardly changed at (74) ......... during the last five centuries. However, nowadays, it is (75) ......... longer the trade centre that it once (76) ......... . It is difficult to imagine that at one time its harbour (77) ......... to be visited by over 2,000 ships a week, and that the huge warehouses along the quayside would have (78) ......... full of spices and silks, jewels and tea. The old city centre is small, which (79) ......... it very easy to explore (80) ......... foot. A river neatly divides the town, (81) ......... only physically but in spirit, too. On one side, you find many grand houses, but on crossing the river, you find yourself in ancient Chinatown, where you really take a step back into the past. It is great fun to wander through the colourful, noisy backstreets. As well as having shops that sell a wide range of clothes and shoes, some of these streets are also famous (82) ......... high quality antiques. Unfortunately, most of the bargains disappeared many years ago. However, (83) ......... you look around carefully, you can still come across an interesting souvenvir.

III. Read the passage below and choose the best answer to each question. Because writing has become so important in our culture, we sometimes think of it as more real than speech. A little thought, however, will show why speech is primary and writing secondary to language. Human beings have been writing (as far as we can tell from surviving evidence) for at least 5,000 years; but they have been talking for much longer, doubtless ever since there have been human beings. When writing did develop, it was derived from and represented speech, although imperfectly. Even today there are spoken languages that have no written form. Furthermore, we all learn to talk well before we learn to write; any human child who is not severely handicapped physically or mentally will learn to talk: a normal human being cannot be prevented from doing so. On the other hand, it takes a special effort to learn to write. In the past many intelligent and useful members of society did not acquire the skill, and even today many who speak languages with writing systems never learn to read or write, while some who learn the rudiments of those skills do so only imperfectly. To affirm the primacy of speech over writing is not, however, to disparage the latter. One advantage writing has over speech is that it is more permanent and makes possible the records that any civilization must have. Thus, if speaking makes us human, writing makes us civilized. 84. We sometimes think of writing as more real than speech because ......... A. it has become very important in our culture B. people have been writing since there have been human beings C. writing is secondary to language D. human beings have been writing for at least 5,000 years 85. The author of the passage argues that ......... A. writing has become too important in today’s society B. speech is more basic to language than writing C. everyone who learns to speak must learn to write D. all languages should have a written form 11
  12. 86. Normal human beings ......... A. learn to write before learning to talk B. learn to talk before learning to write C. learn to talk after learning to write D. learn to write and to talk at the same time 87. According to the passage, writing ......... A. is imperfect, but less so than speech B. represents speech, but not perfectly C. developed from imperfect speech D. is represented perfectly by speech 88. In the author’s judgment, ......... A. writing has more advantages than speech B. speech is essential but writing has important benefits C. speech conveys ideas less accurately than writing does D. writing is more real than speech 89. Which of the following is NOT true? A. Writing has become so important in our culture. B. It is easy to acquire the writing skill. C. Writing represents speech, but not perfectly. D. Speech is essential but writing has important benefits. 90. The word “advantage” in the last paragraph most closely means ......... A. benefit B. rudiments C. domination D. skill 84. .................... 85. ................ 86. ................ 87. ................. 88. .................... 89. ................ 90. ................ SECTION D: WRITING Finish the second sentence in such a way that it has the same meaning as the one printed before it. 91. Steve said to Mike, “Don’t touch the electric wires”.

Sue is looking forward to going to Spain on holiday/ forward to having a holiday in Spain. 96. “Why didn’t you go to school yesterday, John?” the teacher asked. The teacher asked John why he hadn't gone to school the day before/the previous day. 97. It is expected that the US President will lose the election.

The water cycle has four stages: storage, evaporation, precipitation, and run-off. Water on Earth gets stored (65)….. oceans, lakes, rivers, ice, and even underground. Water goes from storage into the atmosphere by a process called evaporation. When water evaporates, it changes from a liquid (66)….. a gas, called water vapor. Water vapor goes up into (67)…... atmosphere. Water returns to the Earth as precipitation in rain or snow by changing into drops of water (68)….. the air gets cold enough. Clouds are collections (69)…..water droplets. Most precipitation falls into the oceans and goes right back into storage. Water that falls on land always flows from (70)….. places to low ones. This flow is called run-off. Water from land flows into streams. Streams join together to make (71)….. and eventually the water flows into storage in the oceans. Then the water cycle starts all over again. 62.......................................................... 63.................................................................. 64.......................................................... 65.................................................................. 66.......................................................... 67.................................................................. 68.......................................................... 69.................................................................. 70.......................................................... 71..................................................................

Most products have a (74)….. name and advertisers aim, through promotion and publicity, to turn these into recognizable brands. This gives the product an imaginary added (75) ….. which somehow convinces people it is worth paying extra for.

III. Read the passage below and choose the best answer for each question. Mozart, who was born on January 27th, 1756 in the Australia city of Salzburg, was neither the first nor the last child prodigy, but he was certainly the greatest. He was born into a moderately prosperous family where his unmatched musical genius made itself known extremely early. Mozart began learning to play harpsichord at three and his earliest known work was composed in 1761 when he was five, the age at which he also first appeared in public. From the age of six, when his father took him on the first foreign tour, Mozart toured the courts and musical centers of Austria, Germany, France, England, Holland, Switzerland and Italy. It has been calculated that Mozart spent almost a third of his short life – he died at the age of thirty-five – travelling. As Mozart matured, he continued to tour and give concerts. Mozart also wrote a lot of operas. His first opera, Mitridate, Re Di Ponto, was performed in Milan when he was 14, and it was his first success in the theatre. 82. How rich was Mozart’s family? A. Very rich B. As rich as a financial C. Not very rich D. Very poor 83. When did he take the step into the world of music as a composer? A. When he was three B. When he was five C.

He toured only D. He did nothing 85. Why is it possible to name Mozart “A travelling composer”? A. Because he spent almost a third of his short life travelling. B. Because he liked travelling a lot. C. Because he never travelled. D. Because he had good imagination. 86. What expression in the passage means “an exceptionally clever child”? A. A child normal B. A child clever C. A child prodigy D.
