Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer for each of the questions from 46 to 55.

A fold culture is small, isolated, cohesive, conservative, nearly self-sufficient  group that is homogeneous in custom and race, with a strong family or clan structure and highly developed rituals. Order is maintained through sanctions based in the religion or family, and interpersonal relationships are strong. Tradition is paramount, and change comes infrequently and slowly. There is relatively little division of labor into specialized duties. Rather, each person is expected to perform a great variety of
tasks, though duties may differ between the sexes. Most goods are handmade, and a subsistence economy prevails. Individualism is weakly developed in folk cultures, as are social classes. Unaltered folk cultures no longer exist in industrialized countries such as the United States and Canada. Perhaps the nearest modern equivalent in Anglo-America is the Amish, a German American farming sect that  largely renounces the products and labor saving devices of the industrial age. In Amish areas, horse-drawn buggies till serve as a local transportation device, and the faithful are not permitted to own automobiles. The  Amish’s  central  religious  concept  of  Demut, “humility”,  clearly  reflects  the  weakness  of individualism and social class so typical of folk cultures, and there is a corresponding strength of Amish group identity. Rarely do the Amish marry outside their sect. The religion, a variety of the Mennonite faith, provides the principal mechanism for maintaining order.

By contrast, a popular culture is a large heterogeneous group, often highly individualistic and constantly changing. Relationships tend to be impersonal, and a pronounced division of labor exists, leading to the establishment of many specialized professions. Secular institutions, of control such as the police and army take the place of religion and family in maintaining order, and a money-based economy prevails. Because of these contrasts, “popular” may be viewed as clearly different from “folk”.

The popular is replacing the folk in industrialized countries and in many developing nations, Folkmade objects give way to their popular equivalent, usually because the popular item is more quickly or cheaply produced, is easier or time saving to use, or lends more prestige to the owner.

46: What does the passage mainly discuss?

A. Two decades in modern society

B. The influence of industrial technology

C. The characteristics of “folk” and “popular” societies

D. The specialization of labor in Canada and the United States

A. There is a money-based economy.       

B. Social change occurs slowly.

C. Contact with other cultures is encouraged.

D. Each person develops one specialized skill.

49: What does the author imply about the United States and Canada?

A. They value folk cultures.                            B. They have no social classes.

C. They have popular cultures.                       D. They do not value individualism.

50: The phrase “largely renounces” is closest in meaning to _____.

A. generally rejects   B. greatly modifies   C. loudly declares         D. often criticizes

51: What is the main source of order in Amish society?

A. The government       B. The economy        C. The clan structure  D. The religion

52: Which of the following statements about Amish beliefs does the passage support?

A. A variety of religious practices is tolerated.

B. Individualism and competition are important.

C. Pre-modern technology is preferred.

D. People are defined according to their class.

53: Which of the following would probably NOT be found in a folk culture?

A. A carpenter            B. A farmer                 C. A weaver                D. A banker

54: The word “prevails” is closest in meaning to _____.

A. dominates               B. provides                  C. develops                 D. invests

55: Which of following is NOT given as a reason why folk-made objects are replaced by mass-produced objects?

A. cost                  B. prestige                   C. quality                    D. convenience

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer for each of the questions from 56 to 65.

Global warming could cause drought and possibly famine in China, the source of much of Hong Kong’s food, by 2050, a new report predicts. Hong Kong could also be at risk from flooding as sea levels rose. The report recommends building sea-walls around low-lying areas such as the new port and airport reclamations. Published by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the report, which includes work by members of the Chinese Academy of Meteorological Sciences, uses the most recent projections on climate change to point to a gloomy outlook for China.

By 2050, about 30 to 40 per cent of the country will experience changes in the type of vegetation it supports, with tropical and subtropical forest conditions shifting northward and hot desert conditions rising in the west where currently the desert is temperate. Crop-growing areas will expand but any benefit is expected to be negated by increased evaporation of moisture, making it too dry to grow crops such as rice. The growing season also is expected to alter, becoming shorter in southern and central China, the mainland’s breadbasket. The rapid changes make it unlikely that plants could adapt.

“China will produce smaller crops. In the central and northern areas, and the southern part, there will be decreased production because of water limitations”, Dr. Rik Leemans, one of the authors of the report, said during a brief visit to the territory yesterday. Famine could result because of the demands of feeding the population - particularly if it grows - and the diminished productivity of the land. “It looks very difficult for the world as a whole”, he said.

Global warming is caused by the burning of large amounts of fossil fuels, such as coal and oil, which release gases that trap heal in the atmosphere. World temperatures already have increased this century by about 6 degrees Celsius and are projected to rise by between 1.6 degrees and 3.8 degrees by 2100.

Dr. Leemans said China’s reliance on coal-fired power for its industrial growth did not bode well for the  world  climate. “I  think  the  political  and  economic  powers  in  China  are  much  greater  than  the nvironmental powers, and [greenhouse gas emissions] could accelerate,” Dr. Leemans said. “China is not taking the problem seriously yet, although it is trying to incorporate this kind of research to see what is going to happen.”

The climate change repot, which will be released tomorrow, focuses on China but Mr. David Melville of WWF-Hong Kong said some of the depressing scenarios could apply to the territory. Food supplies, for instance, could be affected by lower crop yields. “Maybe we could afford to import food from elsewhere but you have to keep in mind that the type of changes experienced in southern China will take  place  elsewhere  as  well,”  he  said.  Sea  levels  could  rise  as  glaciers  melted  and  the  higher temperatures expanded the size of the oceans, threatening much of developed Hong Kong which is built on reclaimed land. Current projections are that sea levels worldwide will rise by 15 to 90 centimetres by 2100, depending on whether action is taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

“Hong Kong has substantial areas built on reclaimed land and sea level rises could impact on that, not only on Chek Lap Kok but the West Kowloon Reclamation and the Central and Western Reclamation - the whole lot,” Mr. Melville said, adding that sea walls would be needed. Depleted fresh water supplies would be another problem because increased evaporation would reduce levels. Mr. Melville said the general outlook could be helped if Hong Kong used water less wastefully and encouraged energy efficiency to reduce fuel-burning. He also called on the West to help China improve its efficiency.

56: Overall, what sort of picture is painted of the future effects of global warming?
