  13. 61. Questions 61-66 England's highest main-line railway station hangs on to life by a thread : deserted and unmanned since it was officially closed in 1970, Dent, situated high in the hills of Yorkshire, wakes up on six summer weekends each year, when a special charter train unloads walkers, sightseers and people who simply want to catch a train from the highest station, on to its platforms. But even this limited existence may soon be brought to an end. Dent station is situated on the Settle to Carlisle railway line, said to be the most scenic in the country. But no amount of scenic beauty can save the line from British Rail's cash problems. This year, for the sake of economy, the express trains which used to pass through Dent station have been put on to another route. It is now an open secret that British Rail sees no future for this railway line. Most of its trains disappeared some time ago. Its bridge, built on a grand scale a century ago, is falling down. It is not alone. Half-a-dozen railway routes in the north of England are facing a similar threat. The problem is a worn out system and an almost total lack of cash to repair it. Bridges and tunels are showing their age, the wooden supports for the tracks are rotting and engines and coaches are getting old. On major lines between large cities, the problem is not too bad. These lines still make a profit and cash can be found to maintain them. But on the country branch line, the story is different. As track wears out, it is not replaced. Instead speed limits are introduced, making journeys longer than necessary and discouraging customers. If a bridge is dangerous, there is often only one thing for British Rail to do: go out and find money from another source. This is exactly what it did a few months ago when a bridge at Bridlington station was threatening to fall down. Repairs were estimated at $200,000 - just for one bridge - and British Rail was delighted, and rather surprised, when two local councils offered half that amount between them. Since 1970 Dent Station has been used ... a) only for a part of each year b) only in some years c) only by local people d) only be hill walkers 62. Of all the railway routes in Britain the one which passes through Dent ... a) is the most historic b) passes through the most attractive countryside c) is the most expensive to maintain d) carries the greatest number of tourists
  14. 63. The most urgent problem for many country railway lines is that of ... a) rebuilding bridges b) repairing engines c) renewing coaches d) repairing stations 64. The people most affected by the difficulties facing British Rail would appear to be ... a) business men b) organised groups of holiday makers c) inter-city travellers d) occasional and local travellers 65. In order to improve the financial situation of country railway lines British Rail should ... a) introduce speed limits b) reduce the scale of maintenance c) increase fares d) appeal to local councils 66. The prospect the country railway lines might close is viewed by the author with ... a) anger b) approval c) regret d) surprise 67. Questions 67 - 69 In marine habitats, a number of small creatures are involved in a "cleaning symbiosis". At least six species of small shrimps, frequently brightly colored, crawl over fish, picking off parasites and cleaning injured areas. This is not an accidental occurrence, because fish are observed to congregate around these shrimp and stay motionless while being inspected. Several species of small fish (wrasses) are also cleaners, nearly all of them having appropriate adaptations such as long snouts, tweezer-like teeth, and bright coloration. Conspicuous coloration
  15. probably communicates that these animals are not prey. What is the topic of this passage? a) Marine life b) Why fish need to be cleaned c) How certain sea creatures clean other fish d) How fish are adapted to be cleaners 68. What is the main idea of the passage? a) Some fish need to be cleaned b) Cleaning symbiosis is an important aspect of marine life c) Certain fish are better adapted to be cleaners than others. d) Cleaner fish are brightly colored 69. What is the best title for the passage? a) Shrimp and Fish b) Narure's Cleaners of the Deep c) Protective Coloration for Fish d) Why Fish Are Cleaners 70. Questions 70 - 75 When I went to interview Roy Bragg yesterday I learned that new regulations, introduced in May this year, affect all forms of money- lending in Britain. This means that there have been some changes for traditional shops of the kind that Mr Bragg owns, where people can borrow money against valuable articles left at the shop until both the loan and the interest due on it are repaid. Individual money-lenders are now able to compete with each other and set their own interest rates but they have to give much more information to the customer at the transaction. Money-lenders now also have to apply for a licence through the government's Office of Fair Trading. The capital a money-lender requires depends on the amount he lends; if he has a lending limit of $1,000 he does not need too much.But if he intends to lend large amounts, says Roy Bragg, who once lent $45,000 on some rare books, 'he should watch out he doesn't get as short of money as his customers. My money is in and out every day of the week'; He and his staff are all Fellows of the Gemological Association. It is an essential qualification for valuing jewellery. though they also learn by esperience whether items are genuine or not. 'When I first started, I never knew it would be so difficult.' said one of Roy Bragg's young
  16. assistants. 'On my own, I wouldn't have got any where; I would have offered too much or too little.' Roy Bragg agrees that you can never accept anything or anybody unquestioningly in the money-lending business. "Some of the best- dressed and most well-spoken people are the ones you have to watch. One of the oldest tricks is for someone to come in and show you a large, real diamond ring. You say they can have $1.000 on it. They say. "Oh no, I wanted $1,500. I'll go somewhere else". You pass the ring back and they don't go away, just take it from you and turn towards the door. Then they turn back and say. "Oh, I don't know, I was recommended to you. I think I'll take the $1,000" And meanwhile they've done a switch with a cheaper ring. I tell my staff that if an item leaves their hands they should inspect it again as if it had just arrived'. How do they know they are not dealing in stolen property? 'After forty- four years, you get a nose for this kind of thing', says Roy Bragg. 'Most of us in the trade know each other well. I'm on the Committee of the National Association: we meet once a month and know if anyone's having any bother'. What difference have the new regulations made to the money-lending business? a) Interest rates are much more variable b) Money-lenders cannot operate without a licence. c) More information has to be given to the government d) Customers now ask more questions 71. What we learn from Roy Bragg about the amount of capital money- lenders need? a) $45,000 is about the right amount b) They must balance their lending policy and their capital c) They will need more than they first thought. d) The Office of Fair Trading sets limits 72. What did Mr Bragg's young assistant find was tending to happen when he first began to work for the business? a) He misjudged what customers wanted b) He damaged precious articles c) He over-valued everything d) He needed help from more experienced staff
  17. 73. Money-lenders have to be suspicious about ... a) everyone who comes to them b) people who look poor c) people who look rich d) anybody who brings valuable items. 74. In the old trick described a money-lender might make the mistake of ... a) not recognizing stolen property b) offering $500 too much c) not realizing there were two rings d) not examining the ring carefully in the first place. 75. How does Mr Bragg know when he is being offered things which have been stolen? a) He gets information from the police b) Experience tells him when something is wrong c) He can now recognize all the local burglars d) The National Association sends out warnings 76. Questions 76 - 80 In this world of new technology it is good to know that some of the old skills and crafts are still practised. One such traditional craft is thatching - making roofs from straw or reeds - and one of the few remaining thatched cottages in the Wellington area, Linden Cottage at Westford, has just been given an attractive new roof. Walkers using the footway past the cottage will no doubt have noticed the new roof; which also covers an area over the front door, and the owner, Mr Dennis Wright and his wife, Pam, say they are delighted with the end result. 'It's an old craft which can't be rushed'. said Mrs Wright. 'The cottage now looks better than ever'. The work, which took about six weeks, was carried out by Brian Whitemore and Robert Webber of Lydeard Saint Lawrence. Until now the 300-year-old cottage was roofed with wheat straw which lasts on average for fifteen years but this time Mr and Mrs Wright decided to have the roof done with water reeds which last for sixty or seventy years and cost more. Signs that re-roofing is needed are when straw washes out in heave rain and the fixings begin to show. The water reeds, which are brought from Scotland, are thicker and longer than wheat straw but are slightly more difficult for the craftsmen to use. Water reeds also differ from wheat
  18. straw in that iron hooks are used to keep them in place, whereas with the old straw roof, wooden pegs were used. After the wheat straw was taken off, the worn wood in the roof was renewed and the cross-pieces which lie over the roof beams were also replaced. Large waterproof sheets were erected to keep everything dry. Although Linden Cottage will not have to be complety re-roofed for many years, like all thatched properties it will still have to be 'ridged' after every eight years. This means that the join at the top of the house is redone to maintain its strength. The cottage has been re-roofed twice in the thirty-one years that Mr and Mrs Wright have lived there - the last time was in 1969. As it has now been officially declared a building of special historic interest which must be preserved, the ridging can only be done in the West Country style, and other patterns of ridging are not acceptable. The roof is now bright yellow in colour but it will quickly become darker as it weathers. Brian Whitemore has been in the roofing business for about thirty years and he and his partner cover a wide area. Working with them at Linden Cottage were brothers Lee and Steven Roadhouse from Bishops Lydeard who are training to become thatchers. While they were there, Brian's small dog, Midge, became a star attraction as he ran up and down their ladder while they worked. He travels almost everywhere with them and is as much part of the scenery as the ladder. Mr and Mrs Wright, The owners of Linden Cottage,... a) have spent a long time looking for someone to do the roof b) are surprised at how difficult it was to do the roof c) were very pleased at how well the work was done d) found they had to choose cheaper roofing material. 77. The new thatched roof at Linden Cottage will last for approximately ... a) eight years b) fifteen years c) seventy years d) three hundred years 78. What was different about how the roof was done this time compared with the previous time? a) A cloth lining was installed b) New wooden pegs were made c) Iron hooks were used to hold the thatch
  19. d) The wooden frame to the roof was re-designed 79. Because Linden Cottage has now been declared of special historic interest, the roof ... a) has to be finished in a certain way b) has to be thatched with water reeds c) must be yellow in colour d) has to be redone more frequently 80. How many people worked on the new roofing? a) one b) two c) four d) five 81. Questions 81 - 90 I hate being ill. I do not simply mean that I dislike the illness itself (although that is true), but I hate what being ill does to my character. As soon as I have a headache or a cold or the first signs of flu coming on, I start to behave as if I were in the grip of some fatal illness, and to wear an expression of suffering which is supposed to indicate that I will bravely face the few days of life that are left to me. The fact is that I really know how to make use of the ability to feel sorry for myself, and, which is more important, how to wring sympathy out of the women who surround me. I love being nursed and fussed over, and I make a three- day cold last a good week by a combination of carefully-produced and well-timed groans and grimaces. Of course, being a man I have to show that I suffer my pain bravely, but I make it quite clear that I am none the less suffering I suffer beautifully. I am really good at it, and I can melt the hardest female heart the minute I am probably suffering from nothing more serious than a hangover. The first thing you must do is deny that you are suffering, because they will be reluctant to give you any sympathy if they think that that is what you are after. But at the same time that you deny you are ill, you must furrow your brow and clutch the part of you that is in agony to show that the pain is overwhelming you in spite of your efforts to put on a brave front. Once you are into your pyjamas and your bed, the battle is as good as won. Do not, at first, ask for anything : you do not want to be a bother to anyone, you are prepared to lie there alone and suffering in silence until the end comes. Under no circumstances should you ask for food : nobody can have a really worthwhile illness and an appetite. In no time at all, they are all over you, full of concern and caresses, stroking your brow and destroying themselves in an attempt to restore you to
  20. health. Most men are naturally good at this sort of thing, and will exploit a minor illness to good effect. But men are not hypochondriacs - sufferers from imaginary illnesses - as most women assert. The fact is that most men are fully aware that they are performing a valuable social service by making out that they are more ill than they really are. You see, women love illness. They do not, on the whole, like to be ill themselves, although they will occasionally take to their beds on some flimsy pretext, just to make sure that they are not being taken completely for granted. No, a wife actually likes her husband to be ill from time to time so that she can show off her talents as an amateur Florence Nightingale. It is the spirit of noble self-sacrifice that really fulfils her. In this she is encouraged by all the television commercials she sees. They show a calm, caring wife/mother-figure mopping fevered brows, administering soothing medicines, and generally behaving like a 'ministering angel'. And when she shakes the thermometer and sticks it into your unprotesting mouth ... well, you would think that it was a magic wand, and that she was a fairy godmother ! Still, there is not doubt that we males get the benefit; it can be nice to be ill once you get the hang of it. If, in addition, you want to make your loved one even happier, keep her awake night after night with your moans and groans and your requests for hot drinks and a cool hand on your brow. There is a bonus for her in all this : when you are better and back at work, think of the pleasure she will get from telling the neighbours about the hell she has been through ! The reason the writer hates being ill is that he ... a) can't stand pain b) doesn't want to be a bother to anyone c) always feels sorry for himself d) does not think he behaves well when he is ill 82. The writer, when he is ill, ... a) makes a lot of noise. b) does not let anyone know how ill he really is. c) always pretends he is worse than he really is. d) goes to bed and stays there until he is well again. 83. If you say that you are in pain, they (whoever is looking after you) will ... a) feel sorry for you b) think you are merely looking for sympathy
