SECTION B

In this section you will find after the reading passage a number of questions or unfinished statements about the passage, each with four suggested answers or ways of finishing. You must choose the one which you think fits best.

The fact that most Americans live in urban areas does not mean that they reside in the center of large cities. In fact, more Americans live in the suburbs of large metropolitan areas than in the cities themselves.

The Bureau of Census regards any area with more than 2,500 people as an urban area, and does not consider boundaries of cities and suburbs. According to the Bureau, the political boundaries are less significant than the social and economic relationships and the transportation and communication systems that integrate a local. The term used by the Bureau for an integrated metropolis is an MSA, which stand for Metropolitan Statistical Area. In general, an MSA is any area that contains a city and its surrounding suburbs and has a total population of 50,000 or more.

 

At the present time, the Bureau reports more than 280 MSAs, which together account for 75 percent of the U.S. population. In addition, the Bureau recognizes 18 metropolises, that is, continuous adjacent metropolitan areas. One of the most obvious megapolises includes a chain of hundreds of cities and suburbs across ten states on the East Coast from Massachusetts to Virginia, including Boston, New York, and Washington D.C. In the Eastern Corridor, as it is called, a population of 45 million inhabitants is concentrated. Another megapolis that is growing rapidly is the California coast from San Francisco through Los Angeles to San Diego.

  1. Which of the following would be the best title for the passage?
    1. Metropolitan Statistical Areas Type of Population Centers
    2. The Bureau of Census D. Megapolises
  2. Where do most Americans live?
    1. In the center of cities In the suburbs surrounding large cities
    2. In rural areas D. In small towns
  3. Which of the following are not considered important in defining an urban area?
    1. Political boundaries Transportation networks
    2. Social relationships D. Economic systems
  4. According to the Bureau of Census, what is an MSA?
    1. The center of a city with a population of 50,000 people to the boundaries of the surrounding suburbs.
    2. A city and its suburbs with a total population of at least 50,000 people
    3. The surrounding suburbs of a city with a total population of 50,000 people
    4. Any area with a total population of 50,000
  5. Where in the passage does the author suggest that three-quarters of the U.S population now resides in MSAs?
    1. Lines 4 – 5 Lines 8 – 10
    2. Lines 11 – 12 D. Lines 16 – 17

SECTION B

In this section you will find after the reading passage a number of questions or unfinished statements about the passage, each with four suggested answers or ways of finishing. You must choose the one which you think fits best.

Dear David,

Many thanks for your long and interesting letter. What a pity, though, that you had to write about what Jonathan has been up to in it. I must say it seemed to me quite unnecessary. I couldn’t of course let Amanda read it, though she kept asking for days. Rather thoughtless of you, dear, wasn’t it, because naturally the children are interested in your letters.

 

You didn’t tell me, by the way, that there was a bomb explosion in your office building shortly after you arrived, but I suppose you don’t want to worry us. Were you in any danger? If things get any worse you’ll have just to come home, and we’ll have to manage without all that money.

By the way, as you didn’t answer my question about the washing machine, I have bought a new one. Fully automatic and rather expensive but it’s super.

I heard about the bomb from Mr. Zapp. A very curious visit which I must tell you about. He cane round the other evening with the book you wanted. It was the most awkward time, about six just as we were about to have dinner, but I felt that I had to invite him in since he’d taken the trouble to bring your book round and he looked rather miserable standing in the wet snow outside the front door wearing waterproof boots and a funny fur hat. He didn’t need any persuading – practically knocked me over in his eagerness to get in the house. I took him into the front room for a quick drink, but it was like an iceberg – I don’t bother to light a fire in there now you’re away – so I had to take him into the dining room, where the children was just beginning to fight because they were hungry for their dinner. I asked him if he would mind me serving the children their meal while he finished his drink, hoping this give him the idea that he should leave promptly, but he said no, he didn’t mind and I should eat too, and he took off his hat and coat and sat down to watch us. And I mean watch us. His eyes followed every moment from dish to plate to mouth. It was very embarrassing. The children felt strangely silent, and I could see that Amanda and Robert were looking at each other and going red in the face with the effort of trying not to laugh. In the end I had to ask him if he wouldn’t like to join us for the meal.

Love, Rosemary

SECTION B

In this section you will find after the reading passage a number of questions or unfinished statements about the passage, each with four suggested answers or ways of finishing. You must choose the one which you think fits best.

David Saucez’s bank robbing was as bad as his bingo. Desperate to pay off his gambling debts, he held up his local bank, and made off with around 2,000 pounds before turning up for work – as a member of Belgian gendarmerie.

It was the earliest arrest his colleagues could have possible expected. For Saucez not only use his service pistol in the hold-up, but also made his get-away in his own easily recognized family car. The car’s number was taken by the manager of the Sud Belge bank in the Brussels suburb of

Schaerbeek. He witnessed the hold-up, but was unnoticed by Saucez.

The unhappy gendarme told colleagues who arrested him that he had run up a debt of 60,000 Belgian francs (around 800 pounds), playing bingo. He was also paying off a home loan, and his wife – who works in another bank – did not know of his gambling.

 

Saucez, described as a “model gendarme” with six years’ service, said he considered robbing the same bank the week before. His nerve failed at the last moment, and he ended up asking for advice on a loan.

On Monday this week he returned to the same bank, and the same temptation. This time it was too much. He told arresting officers “I had no intention of committing a hold-up. I left the barracks to go to the bank and request a delay in repaying my loans. It was on the way there that I decided to take action.”

He was well equipped for the job, if not the getaway. Producing his service pistol, he  demanded and got the money and then made off in his distinctive red Vauxhall.

The gendarmerie, having answered the manager’s alarm call too late to catch the robber red- handed, at least he had the information to catch him red-vehicle.

They traced the car number to Saucez, alerted his unit in Brussels, which said he had been on duty but was now absent. A few minutes later he turned up completely with the hold-up weapon, the getaway car, and the remainder of the loots in his pocket.

  1. David Saucez’s wife works
    1. as a policewoman as a security guard
    2. in the bank he robbed D. in another bank
  2. David Saucez’s wife….
    1. disapproved his gambling tried to help him to give up gambling

SECTION B

In this section you will find after the reading passage a number of questions or unfinished statements about the passage, each with four suggested answers or ways of finishing. You must  choose the one which you think fits best.

What makes it rains? Rain falls from clouds for the same reason anything falls to Earth. The Earth’s gravity pulls it. But every cloud is made of water droplets or ice crystals. Why doesn’t rain or snow fall constantly from all clouds? The droplets or ice crystals in clouds are exceedingly small. The effect of gravity on them is minute. Air currents move and lift droplets so that the net downward displacement is zero, even though the droplets are in constant motion.

Droplets and ice crystals behave somewhat like dust in the air made visible in the shaft of sunlight. To the casual observer, dust seems to act in a totally random fashion, moving about chaotically without fixed direction. But in facts dust particals are much larger that water droplets and they finally fall. The average size of a cloud droplet is only 0.0004 inch in diameter. It is so small that it would take sixteen hours to fall half a mile in perfectly still air, and it doesn’t fall out of moving air at all. Only when the droplet grows to a diameter of 0.008 inch or larger can it fall from the cloud.  The average raindrop contains a million times as much water as a tiny cloud droplet. The growth of a

 

cloud droplet to a size large enough to fall out is the cause of rain and other forms of precipitation. This important growth process is called “coalescence”.

  1. What is the main topic of the passage?
    1. The mechanics of rain The weather patterns of North America
    2. How Earth’s gravity affects agriculture D. Types of clouds
  2. Ice crystals do NOT immediately fall to Earth because
    1. they are kept aloft by air currents
    2. they combine with other chemicals in the atmosphere
    3. most of them evaporate
    4. their electrical charges draw them away from the Earth
  3. The word “random” in line 11 is closest in meaning to
    1. inpredictable perplexing                        C. independent         D. abnormal
  4. What can be inferred about drops of water larger than 0.008 inch in diameter?
    1. They never occur
    2. They are not affected by the force of gravity
    3. In still air they would fall to Earth
    4. In moving air they fall at a speed of thirty-two miles per hour
  5. How much bigger is the raindrop than a cloud droplet?
    1. 200 times bigger 100,000 times bigger
    2. 1,000 times bigger D. 1,000,000 times bigger

SECTION B

In this section you will find after the reading passage a number of questions or unfinished statements about the passage, each with four suggested answers or ways of finishing. You must choose the one which you think fits best.

Marianne Moore (1887 – 1972) once said that her writing could be called poetry only because there was no other name for it. Indeed her poems appear to be extremely compressed essays that happen to be printed in jagged lines on the paper. Her subjects were varied: animals, laborers, artists, and the craft of poetry. From her general reading came quotations that she found striking or insightful. She included these in her poems, scrupulously enclosed in quotation marks, and sometimes identified in footnotes. Of this practice, she wrote, “Why are there many quotation marks? I’m asked…When a thing has been said so well that it could not be said better, why paraphrase it? Hence my writing is, if not a cabinet of fossils, a kind of collection of flies in amber.” Close observation and concentration on detail are the methods of her poetry.

 

Marianne Moore grew up in Kirkwood, Missouri, near St.Louis. After graduation from Bryn Mawr College in 1909, she taught commercial subjects at the Indian School in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Later she became a librarian in New York city. During the 1920’s she was editor of The Dial, an important literary magazine of the period. She lived quietly all her life, mostly in Brooklyn, New York. She spent a lot of time at the Bronx Zoo, fascinated by animals. Her admiration of the Brooklyn Dodgers – before the team moved to Los Angeles – was widely known.

Her first book of poems was published in London in 1921 by a group of friend associated with the Imagist movement. From that time on her poetry has been read with interest by succeeding generations of poets and readers. In 1952 she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for her Collected Poems. She wrote that she did not write poetry “for money or fame. To earn a living is needful, but it can be done in routine ways. One writer because one has a burning desire to objectify what it is indispensable to one’s happiness to express…”

  1. What is the passage mainly about?
    1. The influence of the Imagists on Marianne Moore
    2. Essayists and poets of the 1920’s
    3. The use of quotations in poetry
    4. Marianne Moore’s life and work
  2. According to the passage Moore wrote about all of the following except
    1. artists fossils        C. animals                 D. workers
  3. The author mentions all of the following as jobs held by Moore except
    1. commercial artist teacher      C. librarian                D. magazine editor
  4. The word “succeeding” in line 27 is closest in meaning to
    1. inheriting diverse      C. later                                   D. prospering
  5. It can be inferred from the passage that Moore wrote because she
    1. wanted to win awards was dissatisfied with what others wrote
    2. feel a need to express herself D. wanted to raise money for the Bronx Zoo
