V/. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer


Calcite-containing dust particles blow into the air and combine with nitric acid in polluted air from factories to form an entirely new particle-calcium nitrate. These nitrates have optical and chemical properties that are completely different from those of the originally dry dust particles. Due to this, climate models need to be updated to reflect this chemistry. Calcite dust is common in arid areas such as Israel, where this past winter scientists collected particles for analysis.

Working from a mountaintop, the team collected dust that had blown in from the northern shores of Egypt, Sinai, and southern Israel. The particles had combined with air containing pollutants that came from Cairo. They analyzed nearly 2,000 individual particles and observed the physical and chemical changes at the W.R Wiley Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory.

An important change in the properties of the newly formed nitrate particles is that they absorb water and retain moisture. These particles can scatter and absorb sunlight-presenting climate modelers, who need to know where the energy is going, a new wild card to deal with. Other studies of dust samples from the Sahara and the Saudi Arabian coast and loess from China show that the higher the calcium in the mineral, the more reactive they are with nitric acid. In fact, once the particle is changed, it stays that way.

 51. What is the main idea of the passage?

B. Factories are polluting the environment.

C. Climate models have to be updated because of the new particle calcium nitrate. D. Calcium nitrate has chemical properties different from other dust particles.

B. The new particles can scatter and absorb sunlight.

C. to stop acid dust

D. The new particles can absorb water, retain moisture , scatter and absorb sunlight.

53. Do the particles react with nitric acid?

A. No, but they continue to absorb the sun's energy.

B.No, and the particles do not change

C. Yes, but the changes are temporary.

D.Yes, and the changes are permanent. 

54. Which of the following may be a result of these particles?

A. The chance of an ice age is increased.

C. The greenhouses effects are increased.

B. We may see more rainbows.

D. We may see an increase in carbon dioxide

55. Why does the passage begin with a description of the properties of calcium nitrate?

VI/. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer.

Aging is the process of growing old. It occurs eventually in every living thing provided, of course, that an illness or

accident does not kill it prematurely. The most familiar outward signs of aging may be seen in old people, such as the graying of the hair and the wrinkling of the skin. Signs of aging in a pet dog or cat include loss of playfulness and energy, a

decline in hearing and eyesight, or even a slight graying of the coat. Plants age too, but the signs are much harder to detect.

Most body parts grow bigger and stronger, and function more efficiently during childhood. They reach their peak at the time of maturity, or early adulthood. After that, they begin to decline. Bones, for example, gradually become lighter and more brittle. In the aged, the joints between the bones also become rigid and more inflexible. This can make moving very painful.

All the major organs of the body show signs of aging. The brain, for example, works less efficiently, and even gets smaller in size. Thinking processes of all sorts are slowed down. Old people often have trouble in remembering recent events.

One of the most serious changes of old age occurs in the arteries, the blood vessels that lead from the heart. They become thickened and constricted, allowing less blood to flow to the rest of body. This condition accounts, directly or indirectly, for many of the diseases of the aged. It may, for example, result in heart attack.

Aging is not a uniform process. Different parts of the body wear out at different rates. There are great differences among people in their rate of aging. Even the cells of the body differ in the way they age. The majority of cells are capable of reproducing themselves many times during the course of a lifetime. Nerve cells and muscle fibers can never be replaced once they wear out.

Gerontologists - scientists who study the process of aging-believe this wearing out of the body is controlled by a built-in biological time-clock. They are trying to discover how this clock works so that they can slow down the process. This could give man a longer life and a great number of productive years.

61/. What is the main idea of the first paragraph?

A. Signs of aging are easier to detect in animals than in plants.

B. Aging occurs in every living thing after it has reached maturity.

C. Not all signs of aging are visible.

D. The outward signs of aging may be seen in old people.

62/. What does the word "it" in line 2 refer to?

A. aging                          B. a living thing           C. an illness          D. an accident

A. the graying of the hair                                    B. the wrinkling of the skin

C. the decline in hearing and eyesight                   D. the loss of appetite

64/. When does the human body begin to lose vigor and the ability to function efficiently?

A. Soon after reaching adulthood                         B. During childhood

C. Early adulthood                                             D. Past middle age

65/. What happens to memorization when the brain begins to age?

A. It works less.             B. It becomes forgetful.              C. It declines.                D. It slows down.
