Read the passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.
The food we eat seems to have profound effects on our health. Although science has made enormous steps in making food
more fit to eat, it has, at the same time, made many foods unfit to eat. Some research has shown that perhaps eighty percent
of all human illnesses are related to diet and forty percent of cancer is related to the diet as well., especially cancer of the
colon. People of different cultures are more prone to contract certain illnesses because of the characteristic foods they
consume.
That food is related to illness is not a new discovery. In 1945, government researchers realized that nitrates and nitrites
(commonly used to preserve color in meat) as well as other food additives caused cancer. Yet, these carcinogenic additives
remain in our food, and it becomes more difficult all the time to know which ingredients on the packaging labels of processed
food are helpful or harmful.
The additives that we eat are not all so direct. Farmers often give penicillin to cattle and poultry, and because of this,
penicillin has been found in the milk of treated cows.
Sometimes similar drugs are administered to animals not for medicinal purposes, but for financial reasons. The farmers are
simply trying to fatten the animals in order to obtain a higher price on the market. Although the Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) has tried repeatedly to control these procedures, the practices continue.
A healthy diet is directly related to good health. Often we are unaware of detrimental substances we ingest. Sometimes
well-meaning farmers or others who do not realize the consequences add these substances to food without our knowledge.

51. How has science done a disservice to people?
A. Because of science, disease caused by contaminated food has been virtually eradicated.
B. It caused a lack of information concerning the value of food.
C. As a result of scientific intervention, some potentially harmful substances have been added to our food.
D. The scientists have preserved the color of meats, but not of vegetables.
52. The word prone is nearest in meaning to ________.
A. supine B. unlikely C. healthy D. predisposed
53. What are nitrates used for?
A. They preserve flavor in packaged foods. B. They preserve the colour of meat.
C. They are the objects of research. D. They cause the animals to become fatter.
54. FDA means ________.
A. Food Direct Additives B. Final Difficult Analysis C. Food and Drug Administration D. Federal Dairy Additives

Read the passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.
The Moon has been worshipped by primitive peoples and has inspired humans to create everything from lunar calendars to
love sonnets, but what do we really know about it? The most accepted theory about the origin of the Moon is that it was
formed of the debris from a massive collision with the young Earth about 4.6 billion years ago. A huge body, perhaps the size
of Mars, struck the Earth, throwing out an immense amount of debris that coalesced and cooled in orbit around the Earth.
The development of Earth is inextricably linked to the moon; the Moons gravitational influence upon the Earth is the
primary cause of ocean tides. In fact, the Moon has more than twice the effect upon the tides than the Sun does. The Moon
makes one rotation and completes a revolution around the Earth every 27 days, 7 hours, and 43 minutes. This synchronous
rotation is caused by an uneven distribution of mass in the Moon (essentially, it is heavier on one side than the other) and has
allowed the Earths gravity to keep one side of the Moon permanently facing Earth. It is an average distance from Earth of
384,403 km.
The Moon has no atmosphere; without an atmosphere, the Moon has nothing to protect it from meteorite impacts, and
thus the surface of the Moon is covered with impact craters, both large and small. The Moon also has no active tectonic or
volcanic activity, so the erosive effects of atmospheric weathering, tectonic shifts, and volcanic upheavals that tend to erase
and reform the Earths surface features are not at work on the Moon. In fact, even tiny surface features such as the footprint
left by an astronaut in the lunar soil are likely to last for millions of years, unless obliterated by a chance meteorite strike. The
surface gravity of the Moon is about one-sixth that of the Earths. Therefore, a man weighing 82 kilograms on Earth would only
weigh 14 kilograms on the Moon.
The geographical features of the Earth most like that of the Moon are, in fact, places such as the Hawaiian volcanic craters
and the huge meteor crater in Arizona. The climate of the Moon is very unlike either Hawaii or Arizona, however; in fact the
temperature on the Moon ranges between 123 degrees C. to 233 degrees C.

71. What is the passage primarily about?
A. the Moons effect upon the Earth. B. the origin of the Moon.
C. a comparison of the Moon and the Earth. D. what we know about the Moon and its differences to Earth.
72. The word massive is closest in meaning to ________.
A. unavoidable B. dense C. huge D. impressive
73. The word debris is closest in meaning to ________.
A. rubbish B. satellites C. moons D. earth
74. According to the passage, the Moon is ________.
A. older than the Earth B. protected by a dense atmosphere
C. composed of a few active volcanoes D. the primary cause of Earths ocean tides
75. The word uneven is closest in meaning to ________.
A. heavier B. orderly C. equally distributed D. not uniform
76. Why does the author mention impact craters?
A. to show the result of the Moon not having an atmosphere.
B. to show the result of the Moon not having active tectonic or volcanic activity.
C. to explain why the Moon has no plant life because of meteorites.
D. to explain the corrosive effects of atmospheric weathering.
77. The word erase is closest in meaning to ________.
A. change B. impact C. obliterate D. erupt
78. A person on the Moon would weigh less than on the Earth because ________.
A. of the composition of lunar soil B. the surface gravity of the Moon is less
C. the Moon has no atmosphere D. the Moon has no active tectonic or volcanic activity
79. All of the following are true about the Moon EXCEPT ________.
A. it has a wide range of temperatures B. it is heavier on one side than the other
C. it has less effect upon the tides than the Sun D. it is unable to protect itself from meteorite attacks
80. Which of the following can be inferred from the passage?
A. The Moon is not able to support human life.
B. If the Moon had no gravitational influence, the Earth would not have tides.
C. People living in Hawaii and Arizona would feel at home on the Moon.
D. Mars could have been formed in a similar way to the Moon.
