victim on its own success. It is now generally accepted that issues such as global warming
needs to be dealt with seriously, and that the Scandinavian forests are being destroyed
thank to the effects of acid rain. Views as these have now become an accepted part of the
politic scene, and consumers are constant bombarded like with green or environmental
friendly products. But, this does not mean that environmentally groups can now afford to
relax. In the contrary, a green movement must consider how the momentum will be

in train, and so far very few has been done to reverse it

answer (A, B, C or D) in the numbered box. (10 points)

Reading to oneself is a modern activity which was almost unknown to the scholars of the
classical and medieval words, while during the fifteenth century the term reading
undoubtedly meant reading aloud. Only during the nineteenth century did silent reading
become commonplace.
One should be wary, however, of assuming that silent reading, came about simply because
reading aloud was a distraction to others. Examinations of factors related to the historical
development of silent reading have revealed that it became the usual mode of reading for
most adults mainly because the tasks themselves changed in character.
The last century saw a steady gradual increase in literacy and thus in the number of
readers. As the number of readers increases, the number of potential listeners decline and

thus there was some reduction in the need to read aloud. As reading for the benefit of
listeners grew less common, so came the flourishing of reading as a private activity in
such public places as libraries, railway carriages and offices, where reading aloud would
cause distraction to other readers.
Towards the end of the century, there was still considerable argument over whether books
should be used for information or treated respectfully and over whether the reading of
materials such as newspapers was in some mentally weakening. Indeed, this argument
remains with us still in education. However, whatever its virtues, the old shared literacy
culture had gone and was replaced by the printed mass media on the one hand and by
books and periodicals for a specialized readership on the other.
By the end of the twentieth century, students were being recommended to adopt attitudes
to books and to use reading skills which were inappropriate, if not impossible, for the oral
