Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 33 to 42.

Noise is unwanted sound and is among the most pervasive pollutants today. Noise from road traffic, jet planes, jet skis, garbage trucks, construction equipment, manufacturing processes, lawn mowers, leaf blowers, and boom boxes, to name a few, are among the unwanted sounds that are routinely broadcast into the air.

The problem with noise is not only that it is unwanted, but also that it negatively affects human health and well-being. Problems related to noise include hearing loss, stress, high blood pressure, sleep loss, distraction and lost productivity, and a general reduction in the quality of life and opportunities for tranquillity.

We experience noise in a number of ways. On some occasions, we can be both the cause and the victim of noise, such as when we are operating noisy appliances or equipment. There are also instances when we experience noise generated by others just as people experience second-hand smoke. While in both instances, noises are equally damaging, second-hand noise is more troubling because it has negative impacts on us but is put into the environment by others, without our consent.

The air into which second-hand noise is emitted and on which it travels is a “commons”, a public good. It belongs to no one person or group, but to everyone. People, businesses, and organizations, therefore, do not have unlimited rights to broadcast noise as they please, as if the effects of noise were limited only to their private property. On the contrary, they have an obligation to use the commons in ways that are compatible with or do not detract from other uses.

People, businesses, and organizations that disregard the obligation to not interfere with others' use and enjoyment of the commons by producing noise pollution are, in many ways, acting like a bully in a school yard. Although perhaps unknowingly, they nevertheless disregard the rights of others and claim for themselves rights that are not theirs.

We have organized to raise awareness of noise pollution and help communities take back the commons from those acting like bullies. Our efforts include building a library of resources and tools concerning noise pollution, establishing links to other groups that have similar collections, establishing networks among local noise activists, assisting communities and activists who are working to reduce noise pollution, and monitoring and advocating for stronger noise controls.


Question 33: It is stated in the passage that all of the following are things the noise comes from EXCEPT ______.

A. Television, radio

B. Lawn mower, leaf blowers

C. Road traffic, garbage trucks

D. Jet planes, watercraft

Question 34: It can be inferred from the passage that the effects of noise pollution on the human body are that ______.

A. people get accustomed to ear and heart diseases

B. people focus mainly on hearing 

C. people have difficulty falling asleep

D. people are sensitive about everything around them

Question 35: The word “negative” in paragraph 3 is opposite in meaning to ______.

A. assertive

B. penetrative

C. relative

D. positive

Question 36: Which of the following is supposed to be way to reduce noise pollution?

A. cooperation with other noise activists

B. fining people who break laws in noise regulation

C. construction of large projects along roads

D. prohibiting public transport during peak hours

Question 37: The word “it” in paragraph 4 refers to ______.

A. the air

B. a public good

C. effect of noise

D. second-hand noise

Question 38: It is mentioned in the passage that when we are operating noisy appliances or we experience noise generated by others ______.

A. The noise is so troublesome if we make it or not.

B. We feel more comfortable if we don’t experience second-hand noise.

C. The noise have a strong influence on us, but not on others.

D. We just ignore the serious detriment if the noise is put into the environment by others.

Question 39: In writer’s opinion, who are not only responsible for making noise but also under noise pressure?

A. Everyone using the applicants and equipment

Question 40: The word “disregard” in paragraph 5 could be best replaced by which of the following?

A. ignore

B. obey

C. invade

D. disturb

Question 41: Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?

A. Noise that is experienced by people who did not produce it is called second-hand noise.

B. People’s enjoyment of the commons by producing noise pollution is regarded as a bully.

C. Noise is one of the most common contaminants nowadays.

Last year thieves broke into a Scottish stately home and stole one thing: a rhino horn trophy, which at 1.5 metres was the longest in the world. Meanwhile, in China, pharmaceuticals (45)______ have been building up collections of antqiue cups, bowls and figurines made from rhino horn, for the sole (46)______ of smashing them to powder to make the (47) _____ ingredient of many of their medicines. And in Zimbabwe, 34 poachers have so far died this year in (48)_____ of the black rhino.

‘It’s amazing the lengths people will go to to get rhino horn,’ said Lyster, of the World Wide Fund for Nature. These lengths (49)_____ why the rhino could be extinct within 10 years if trade in horns to the Far East is not stopped. This week, conservationists are meeting in Switzerland to plan a campaign to persuade those countries where rhino horn is part of the traditional medicine to switch to substitutes such as water buffalo horn.

The biggest threat to the survival of the rhinoceros is the refusal of four countries - China, Thailand, South Korea and Thaiwan - to enforce a ban (50)_____ domestic trading in rhino horn. Similar bans have worked well in Japan, Hong Kong and nearby Macau.

Rhino is included in many patent remedies for disorders ranging from high fever to nosebleeds. Horn is made (52)______ keratin, and has no proven medicinal powers. ‘If you want the same effect you might as well chew your fingernails,’ said Esmond Bradley Martin, a world authority on rhino horn who has just returned from China. Traditional substitutes, such as horn from bufffalo or saiga antelope, are (53)______ second best.

China is the country where the consumers of rhino horn are the largest, many people are making medicines for both home consumption and export to other Far Eastern countries. Martin found that many places have stocks of 10,000 kilograms of horns. This represents 3,500 rhinos, or the entire population of African black rhinos. These places use 650 kilograms a year. Traditional medicines made outside the official factories could consume much more.

‘This is a (an) (53)______  battle,’ said Lyster. (54)______ the battle may be harder than that against the trade in ivory, for there is a difference between the two commodities, Ivory is a luxury; rhino horn, people believe, could save the life of their child.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 55 to 64.

The weather phenomenon called El Nino was first recorded in the 1500s when fishermen in South America noticed that near Christmas some years the water was noticeably warmer than others. They named this El Nino, or the infant, as it happened near the celebration of the birth of Christ.

Only in recent years has there been any serious investigations into the causes and results of El Nino. The 1997 - 1998 El Nino was the first to be studied extensively. Scientists from France, Japan, Korea and Taiwan combined the various readings they had from satellite and surface measurements of wind speeds and water temperatures to make the Tropical Atmosphere Ocean Array. This combined information allowed them to see the overall patterns of an El Nino and helped them predict when one was starting.

Weather pattern rely heavily on the operation of the “planetary heat engine”. Essentially, this means that because the sun is closest to the equator the seawater in that region is the warmest. The warm water evaporates and forms clouds, which move toward the poles powered by their heat. These atmospheric loops, which move heat from the tropics to the poles, are called “connective cells”. Without this process the equatorial regions would be hotter than they are and the north and south would be much colder.

The wind in the central Pacific tends to blow from the east. This pushes water from South America towards Australia and Indonesia. As a result, sea levels have been found to be up to 60 centimetres higher in the west. The water that is pushed westward from the South American coast is replaced by colder water, which has a high nutrient level that consequently attracts fish. This makes the waters off Peru and Ecuador good fishing grounds.

An El Nino happens when the winds weaken and sea levels drop. The warmer water moves east and less water evaporates to form clouds. The results of this are twofold. The warmer water in the east reduces the number of fish and the lack of rain causes droughts. This can cause problems such as the forest fires that have plagued Indonesia and Australia in recent years. Additionally, El Nino is thought to be one of the causes of hurricanes that have devastated Central and North West America.

As the population has increased the effects of changing weather have had a greater impact. People are living in places, often in areas more likely to be affected by adverse weather, than they ever did before and in increased densities. This means that natural disasters affect more people. Natural resources are being used closer to their limits, so small changes in their availability can cause disruption. For example, in the past, South American fishermen could make a profit even during an EL Nino, but modern industrial fishing needs larger fish stocks to be profitable.

Knowing when an El Nino is developing allows people to make plans to lessen its negative effects. The system of buoys and satellites monitoring the Pacific allows scientists to predict the start of the 12 to 18 month El Nino cycle. As a result people can prepare. For example, in North East Brazil during the 1987 El Nino, farmers only got 15% of their normal grain harvest, but in 1992, when the government advised them to plant fast maturing plants, they got 82%.

The question of whether El Nino has been strengthened by global warming is unanswered. The National Centre for Atmospheric research believes that El Nino could be responsible for the increased temperatures in North America by changing the jet stream. Global warming may not be the direct cause. However, global warming may cause the local warming changes that cause El Nino and change atmospheric circulation. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration suggests that global warming may increase El Nino effects by increasing temperatures and increasing water evaporation over land leading to floods.

El Nino is only one factor in the complex inter-relations that cause weather patterns, but it appears to be a major factor. By monitoring the phenomenon, we can limit its effects and avoid disasters and droughts.
