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. In this era of increased global warming and diminishing fossil fuel supplies, we must begin to put a great priority on harnessing alternative energy sources. Fortunately, there are a number of readily available, renewable resources that are both cost-effective and earth-friendly. Two such resources are solar power and geothermal power. Solar energy, which reaches the earth through sunlight, is so abundant that it could meet the needs of worldwide energy consumption 6,000 times over. And solar energy is easily harnessed through the use of.

(4) photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight to electricity. In the US alone, more than 100,000 homes are equipped with solar electric systems in the form of solar panels or solar roof tiles. And in other parts of the world, including many developing countries, the use of solar system is growing steadily. Another alternative energy source, which is abundant in specific geographical areas, is geothermal power, which creates energy by tapping heat from below the surface of the earth. Hot water and steam that are trapped in underground pools are pumped to the surface and used to run a generator, which produces electricity. Geothermal energy is 50,000 times more abundant than the entire known supply of fossil fuel resources and as with solar power, the technology needed to utilize geothermal energy is fairly simple. A prime example of effective geothermal use in Iceland, a region of high geothermal activity where there are over 30 percent of private homes, are heated by geothermal power. Solar and geothermal energy are just two of promising renewable alternatives to conventional energy sources. The time is long overdue to invest in the development and use of alternative energy on global scale. Question 45. What is the main topic of this passage? A. The benefits of solar power and wind power over conventional energy sources. B. Two types of alternative energy sources that should be further utilized. C. How energy resources are tapped from nature. D. Examples of the use of energy sources worldwide. Question 46. According to the passage, why should we consider using alternative energy sources? A. Because fossil fuels are no longer available. B. Because global warming has increased the amount of sunlight that reaches the earth. C. Because they are free and available worldwide. D. Because conventional energy resources are being depleted, and they cause environmental damage. Question 47. Which of the following words could best replace the word “harnessing”? A. Capturing B. Harassing C. Depleting D. Exporting Question 48. According to the passage, what can be inferred about solar roof tiles? A. They are being used in many undeveloped countries. B. They can convert geothermal energy to electricity. C. They are more expensive than solar panels. D. They contain photovoltaic cells. Question 49. According to the passage, how is solar energy production similar to geothermal energy production? A. They both require the use of a generator. B. They both use heat from the earth’s surface. C. They both require fairly simple technology. D. They are both conventional and costly. Question 50. Where is the best place in the passage to insert the following sentence? “Although the US is not utilizing geothermal resources to this extent, the Western US has a similar capacity to generate geothermal power.” A. after the phrase “earth-friendly” B. after the phrase “growing steadily” C. after the phrase “geothermal power” D. after the phrase “global scale” Question 51. According to the passage, which of the following is true about solar power? A. There is very little of it available in Iceland..

(5) B. It is being used in 100,000 private homes worldwide. C. It is 6,000 times more powerful than energy from fossil fuels. D. There is enough of it to far exceed the energy needs of the world. Question 52. What can be inferred about the use of geothermal energy in Iceland? A. It is widely used form of energy for heating homes. B. Twenty percent of the geothermal energy created is used to heat businesses. C. It is not effective for use in private homes. D. It is 80 times more effective than traditional forms of energy. Question 53. What does the author imply about alternative energy sources? A. Many different types of alternative energy sources exist. B. Most alternative energy sources are too impractical for private use. C. Alternative energy is too expensive for developing countries to produce. D. Solar and geothermal energy are the effective forms of alternative power. Question 54. What best describes the author’s purpose in writing the passage? A. To warn people about the hazards of fossil fuel use. B. To convince people of the benefits of developing alternative energy sources. C. To describe the advantages and disadvantages of alternative energy use. D. To outline the problems and solutions connected with global warming. 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. Increasing numbers of parents in the U.S. are choosing to teach their children at home. In fact, the U.S. Department of Education has estimated that in 1999, about 850,000 children were being homeschooled. Some educational experts say that the real number is double this estimate, and the ranks of homeschooled children seem to be growing at the average rate of about eleven percent every year. At one time, there was a theory accounting for homeschooling: it was traditionally used for students who could not attend school because of behavioral or learning difficulties. Today, however, more parents are taking on the responsibility of educating their own children at home due to their dissatisfaction with the educational system. Many parents are unhappy about class size, as well as problems inside the classroom. Teacher shortages and lack of funding mean that, in many schools, one teacher is responsible for thirty or forty students. The children are, therefore, deprived of the attention they need. Escalating classroom violence has also motivated some parents to remove their children from school. Although there have been a lot of arguments for and against it, homeschooling in the U.S. has become a multi-million dollar industry, and it is growing bigger and bigger. There are now plenty of websites, support groups, and conventions that help parents protect their rights and enable them to learn more about educating their children. Though once it was the only choice for troubled children, homeschooling today is an accepted alternative to an educational system that many believe is failing. Question 55. The number of parents who want to teach their own children in the U.S. is _________. A. remaining unchanged B. remaining the same C. going up D. going down Question 56. The past participle “homeschooled” in the first paragraph is best equivalent to “_________ at home”. A. taught B. self-learned C. untaught D. self-studied Question 57.

A. 1,600,000 B. 850,000 C. 1,900,000 D. 1,700,000 Question 59. The closest synonym of the participle phrase “accounting for” in the second paragraph is _________. A. explaining B. reasoning C. counting for D. calculating documents of Question 60. More parents teach their children because they completely _________ the current educational system.
