VII. 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.

      Accustomed though we are to speaking of the films made before 1927 as "silent", the film has never been, in the full sense of the word, silent. From the very beginning, music was regarded as an indispensable accompaniment; when the Lumiere films were shown at the first public film exhibition in the United States in February 1896, they were accompanied by piano improvisations on popular tunes. At first, the music played bore no special relationship to the films; an accompaniment of any kind was sufficient. Within a very short time, however, the incongruity of playing lively music to a solemn film became apparent, and film pianists began to take some care in matching their pieces to the mood of the film.

    As movie theaters grew in number and importance, a violinist, and perhaps a cellist, would be added to the pianist in certain cases, and in the larger movie theaters small orchestras were formed. For a number of years the selection of music for each film program rested entirely in the hands of the conductor or leader of the orchestra, and very often the principal qualification for holding such a position was not skill or taste so much as the ownership of a large personal library of musical pieces. Since the conductor seldom saw the films until the night before they were to be shown (if, indeed, the conductor was lucky enough to see them then), the musical arrangement was normally improvised in the greatest hurry.

     To help meet this difficulty, film distributing companies started the practice of publishing suggestions for musical accompaniments. In 1909, for example, the Edison Company began issuing with their films such indications of mood as "pleasant', "sad", "lively". The suggestions became more explicit, and so emerged the musical cue sheet containing indications of mood, the titles of suitable pieces of music, and precise directions to show where one piece led into the next.

     Certain films had music especially composed for them. The most famous of these early special scores was that composed and arranged for D. W. Griffith's film Birth of a Nation, which was released in 1915.

Question 51: The passage mainly discusses music that was­­­­­­­ ____________.

            A. performed before the showing of a film    B. played during silent films

            C. recorded during film exhibitions                D. specifically composed for certain movie theaters

Question 52: What can be inferred that the passage about the majority of films made after 1927?

A. They were truly "silent".                                             

B. They were accompanied by symphonic orchestras.

C. They incorporated the sound of the actors' voices.    

D. They corresponded to specific musical compositions.

Question 53: It can be inferred that orchestra conductors who worked in movie theaters needed to ________.

A. be able to play many instruments           B. have pleasant voices

C. be familiar with a wide variety of music    D. be able to compose original music

Question 54: The word "them" refers to _________.

A. years              B. hands               C. pieces               D. films

Question 55: According to the passage, what kind of business was the Edison Company?

A. It produced electricity.                            B. It distributed films.

C. It published musical arrangements.         D. It made musical instruments.

Question 56: It may be inferred from the passage that the first musical cue sheets appeared around _______.

 A. 1896                  B. 1909                  C. 1915                   D. 1927

Question 57: Which of the following notations is most likely to have been included on a musical cue sheet of the early 1900's?

A. "Calm, peaceful"                            B. "Piano, violin"

C. "Key of C major"                            D. "Directed by D. W. Griffith"

Question 58: The word "composed" is closest in meaning to __________.

 A. selected           B. combined               C. played                 D. created

Question 59: The word "scores" most likely mean ____________.

 A. totals     B. successes   C. groups of musicians     D. musical compositions

Question 60: The passage probably continues with a discussion of ____________.

A. other films directed by D. W. Griffith       

B. famous composers of the early twentieth century

C. silent films by other directors                    

D. the music in Birth of a Nation

VIII. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct word for each of the blanks.


            However objective we believe ourselves to be, most of us do not judge a product solely on its merits, considering quality, value and style before making a decision. (61)___, we are easily influenced by the people around us.

            There is nothing (62)____ with this. It is probably a smarter way to make decisions than (63)___ on only our own opinions. But it does make life hard for companies.

Or do they copy one another, perhaps (66)___ envy or perhaps because they have shared information about the products?

            Research in Finland recently found overwhelming evidence that neighbours have a big influence on buying decisions. When one of a person’s ten nearest neighbours bought a car, the chances that that person would buy a car of the same brand during the next week and a half (67)____ by 86 per cent. The researchers argued that it was not just a (68)__ of envy. Used cars seemed to attract neighbours even more than new cars. This suggested that people were not trying to (69)___ up with their neighbours, they were keen to learn from them. Since used cars are less reliable, a recommendation of one can (70)____influence a buying decision.

IX. 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.

            Glass is a remarkable substance made from the simplest raw materials. It can be colored or colorless, monochrome or polychrome, transparent, translucent, or opaque. It is lightweight impermeable to liquids, readily cleaned and reused, durable yet fragile, and often very beautiful Glass can be decorated in multiple ways and its optical properties are exceptional. In all its myriad forms - as table ware, containers, in architecture and design –

glass represents a major achievement in the history of technological developments.

            Since the Bronze Age about 3,000 B.C., glass has been used for making various kinds of objects. It was first made from a mixture of silica, line and an alkali such as soda or potash, and these remained the basic ingredients of glass until the development of lead glass in the seventeenth century. When heated, the mixture becomes soft and malleable and can be formed by various techniques into a vast array of shapes and sizes. The homogeneous mass thus formed by melting then cools to create glass, but in contrast to most materials formed in this way (metals, for instance), glass lacks the crystalline structure normally associated with solids, and instead retains the random molecular structure of a liquid. In effect, as molten glass cools, it progressively stiffens until rigid, but does so without setting up a network of interlocking crystals customarily associated with that process. This is why glass shatters so easily when dealt a blow. Why glass deteriorates over time, especially when exposed to moisture, and why glassware must be slowly reheated and uniformly cooled after manufacture to release internal stresses induced by uneven cooling.

            Another unusual feature of glass is the manner in which its viscosity changes as it turns from a cold substance into a hot, ductile liquid. Unlike metals that flow or "freeze" at specific temperatures glass progressively softens as the temperature rises, going through varying stages of malleability until it flows like a thick syrup. Each stage of malleability allows the glass to be manipulated into various forms, by different techniques, and if suddenly cooled the object retains the shape achieved at that point. Glass is thus amenable to a greater number of heat-forming techniques than most other materials.

Question 71: Why does the author list the characteristics of glass in paragraph 1?

A. To demonstrate how glass evolved         

B. To show the versatility of glass

C. To explain glassmaking technology                    

D. To explain the purpose of each component of glass

Question 72: The word "durable"' in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to______.

 A. lasting            B. delicate              C. heavy                D.  plain

Question 73: What does the author imply about the raw materials used to make glass

A. They were the same for centuries.             B. They are liquid.                 

C. They are transparent.                             D. They are very heavy.

Question 74: According to the passage, how is glass that has cooled and become rigid different from most other rigid substances?

A. It has an interlocking crystal network.      

B. It has an unusually low melting temperature.

C. It has varying physical properties.            

D. It has a random molecular structure.

Question 75: The word "customarily" in paragraph 2 could best be replaced by “______”.

 A. naturally          B. necessarily           C. usually               D. certainly

Question 76: The words "exposed to" in paragraph 2 most likely mean ______.

 A. hardened by         B. chilled with        C. subjected to        D. deprived of

Question 77: What must be done to release the internal stresses that build up in glass products during manufacture?

A. The glass must be reheated and evenly cooled.   

B. The glass must be cooled quickly.              

C. The glass must be kept moist until cooled.          

D. The glass must be shaped to its desired form immediately

Question 78: The word "induced" in paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to_______.

A. joined                  B. missed                  C. caused              D.  lost

Question 79: The word "it" in paragraph 3 refers to________.

 A. feature            B. glass                C. manner            D. viscosity

Question 80: According to the passage, why can glass be more easily shaped into specific forms than can metals

A. It resists breaking when heated                   

B. It has better optical properties.

C. It retains heat while its viscosity changes.
