Precipitation, commonly referred to as rainfall, is a measure of the quantity of water in the form of either rain, hail, or snow which reaches the ground.

  2. Tµi liÖu luyÖn thi §¹i häc * M«n TiÕng Anh * TEST 39 – Multiple Choice. Page 2 the precipitation of snowfall is that ten inches of snow is equal to one inch of precipitation. In N ew York State, for example, twenty inches of snow in one year would be recorded as only two inches of precipitation. Forty inches of rain would be recorded as forty inches of precipitation. The total annual precipitation would be recorded as forty-two inches. The amount of precipitation is a combined result of several factors, including location, altitude, proximity to the sea, and the direction of prevailing winds. Most of the precipitation in the United States is brought originally by prevailing winds from the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Great Lakes. Because these prevailing winds generally come from the West, the Pacific Coast receives more annual precipitation than the Atlantic Coast. Along the Pacific Coast itself, however, altitude causes some diversity in rainfall. 1) What does this passage mainly discuss? A. Precipitation B. Snowfall C. New York State D. A general formula 2) Which of the following is another word that is often used in place of precipitation? A. Humidity B. Wetness C. Rainfall D. Rain-snow 3) The term “precipitation” includes A. Only rainfall B. Rain, hail and snow C. Rain, snow, and humidity D. Rain, hail and humidity 4) What is the average annual rainfall in inches in the United States? A. Thirty-six inches B. Thirty-eight inches C. Forty inches D. Forty-two inches 5) If a state has 40 inches of snow in a year, by how much does this increase the annual precipitation? A. By two feet B. By four inches C. By four feet D. By 40 inches 6) Where is the annual precipitation highest? A. The Atlantic Coast B. The Great Lakes C. The Gulf of Mexico D. The Pacific Coast PARAGRAPH TWO: Read the following paragraph and choose the best answer. Over a period of time, many habitats change with respect to the types of plants and animals that live there. This change is known as succession. Succession occurs because plants and animals cause a change in the environment in which they live. The first weed and grasses that appear on a bare field, for example, change the environment by shielding the soil from direct sunlight. As these plants spread, the ground surface becomes cooler and moister than it was originally. Thus, the environment at the ground surface conditions favour the sprouting of shrubs. As shrubs grow, they kill the grasses by preventing light from reaching them and also build up the soil in the area. In addition, they attract animals that also enhance the soil. Pine seedlings soon take hold and as they grow, they in turn shade out the shrubs. They are not able to shade out oak and hickory seedlings, however, that have found the forest floor suitable. These seedlings grow into large trees that eventually shade out the pines. 1) What is the best title of this passage? A. The Importance of Weeds and Grasses. B. How environmental Habits Change. C. The Success of Oak and Hickory. D. Animal and Plant Habitats. 2) Which is the correct order of plant succession in the example in the passage? A. Weeds, pines, shrubs. B. Oak, pines, shrubs, weeds. C. Weeds, shrubs, pines, oak. D. Shrubs, weeds, pines, oak. 3) According to the passage, how do weeds and grasses affect the soil? A. They make it cooler and wetter. B. They attract animals to it. C. They spread seeds on it. D. They add nutrients to it. 4) It can be inferred from the passage that A. oak and hickory trees grow taller than pines. B. weeds and grasses prefer cool climates. C. pines and grasses can exist together. D. birds discourage the growth of shrubs. 5) Which of the following is a stage of succession as described in the passage? A. A forest cut down to build an airport. B. A flood washing away a crop of wheat. C. Wild flowers growing in an unused parking lot. D. Animals being tamed by children. PARAGRAPH THREE: Read the following paragraph and choose the best answer. Rainforests circle the globe for twenty degrees of latitude on both sides of the equator. In that relatively narrow band of the planet, more than half of all the species of plants and animals in their world make their home. Several hundred different varieties of trees may grow in a single acre, and just one of those trees may be the habitat for more than ten thousand kinds of spiders, ants, and other insects. Unfortunately, half of the world’s rainforests have already been destroyed, and at the current rate, another 25 percent will be lost by the year 2000. Every sixty seconds, one hundred acres of rainforests is being cleared. By the time you finish reading this passage, two hundred acres will be destroyed! When this happens, constant rains erode the former forest floor, and the ecology of the region is altered forever. Thousands of species of plants and animals are condemned to extinct ional and, since we aren’t able to predict the ramifications of this loss to a delicate global ecology, we don’t know what we may be doing to the future of the human species as well. 1) What is the point of view that the author expresses in this passage? A. The author believes that the rainforest will survive. B. The author believes that preserving the rainforest is important to the global ecology. C. The author believes that he can predict the future of global ecology. D. The author believes that the extinction of species is a natural process. 2) According to the passage, more than half of all the species of plants and animals A. live in twenty rainforests. B. live in several hundred different varieties of trees. C. live in a forty-degree band of latitude. D. live in areas where rainforest has been cleared. 3) What is the meaning of the word “just” in line 3? A. fairly B. only C. correctly D. precisely 4) How many of the world’s rainforests are projected to be destroyed if the current rate continues? A. All of them will be gone by the year 2000. B. Three-quarters of them will be gone by the year 2000. C. Half of them will be gone by the year 2000. D. One-quarter of them will be gone by the year 2000. 5) What is the current rate of destruction? A. One acre per minute. B. One acre per second. C. One hundred acres per minute. D. Two hundred acres per hour. 6) What will NOT happen if the rainforest continues to be cleared? A. The land will be eroded by the rains. B. The future of the human species may be changed. C. Many species of plants and animals that depend on the rainforest will become extinct. D. The rainforest will grow, but at a much slower rate. PARAGRAPH FOUR: Read the following paragraph and choose the best answer for each blank.
