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 from 38 to 47.
The air above our head is becoming cleaner. A breath of fresh air has been running right round the planet for the past five years. The planet is apparently purging itself of pollution. Paul Novell of the University of Colorado, the co-author of a report on this phenomenon says, "It seems as if the planet's own cleaning service has suddenly got a new lease of life. Suddenly, there are a lot of changes going on up there".
Estimates of the death toll from urban smog have been steadily rising, so the new cleaner trend could have significant consequences for life expectancy in cities as well as for the planet itself. The sudden and unexpected reversal of several decades of worsening pollution extends from the air in city streets to the remotest mid-Pacific Ocean and Antarctica.
Among the pollutants which have begun to disappear from the atmosphere are carbon monoxide, from car exhaust and burning rain forests, and methane from the guts of cattle, paddy fields, and gas fields. Even carbon dioxide, the main gas behind global warning, has fallen slightly.
There are two theories about why pollution is disappearing. First that there is less pollution to start with due to laws to cut down urban smogs and acid rain starting to have a global impact. Second, that the planet may be becoming more efficient at cleaning up.
The main planetary clean-up agent is a chemical called hydroxyl. It is present throughout the atmosphere in tiny quantities and removes most pollutants from the air by oxidizing them. The amount of hydroxyl in the air has fallen by a quarter in 1980s. Now it may be reviving for two reasons: ironically, because the ozone hole has expanded, letting in more ultraviolet radiation into the lower atmosphere, where it manufactures hydroxyl. Then the stricter controls on vehicle exhausts in America and Europe may have cut global carbon monoxide emissions, thereby allowing more hydroxyl to clean up other pollutants.
Question 38: What is the main topic of the passage?
A. The changing pollutants in the atmosphere. B. The decreasing pollution of the atmosphere.
C. Hydroxyl's influence on the atmosphere. D. The oxygenation of the atmosphere.
Question 39: The word "purging" in line 2 is closest in meaning to __________.
A. filtering B. refining C. destroying D. ridding
Question 40: According to the passage, life expectancy partly depends on people having __________.
A. recommendations from university research B. improvement in atmosphere conditions
C. access to details about atmospheric pollution D. changes in their lifestyle
Question 41: The word "toll" in line 5 could best be replaced by__________.
A. count B. damage C. costs D. loss
Question 42: What does the author suggest is the main cause of pollution reduction?
A. Fewer cattle and gas fields. B. A smaller number of cars.
C. A curtailment of chemicals. D. Less impact from burning forests.
Question 43: The word "it" in paragraph 5 refers to __________.
A. urban smog B. the ozone hole C. acid rain D. a clean-up agent
Question 44: It can be inferred from the passage that the cleansing of the planet is __________.
A. inexplicable B. predictable C. surprising D. confusing
Question 45: Based on information in the passage, all of the following information referring to hydroxyl is true EXCEPT __________.
A. oxidization of pollutants is carried out by hydroxyl.
B. there is difficulty in destroying carbon dioxide by hydroxyl.
C. ultraviolet radiation increases production of hydroxyl.
D. the reduction in the ozone layer is beneficial to hydroxyl.
Question 46: The word "reviving" in paragraph 5 is closest in meaning to __________.
A. reproducing B. repeating C. reappearing D. refreshing
Question 47: The passage supports which of the following conclusions?
A. The decrease of methane has enabled ultraviolet radiation to enter the atmosphere.
B. The beneficial effect of hydroxyl has aided the cleaning process.
C. The reduction in carbon dioxide has produced a cleaner atmosphere.
D. An expansion in hydroxyl has enlarged the ozone hole.

If you ask a hundred people to look (55)__________ the future, you will probably get a hundred different answers. But two major themes seem to emerge from almost every prediction made.

You may be married with two children, but this won't be the norm any more. It will simply be one of a number of choices, along with living in groups and living alone.
The other huge (57)__________ on our lives will be micro technology – computers and telecommunications. Take work, for instance.

Offices, too, will go electronic with the result that paper will almost completely disappear. More people will work from home at computers (58)__________ to a head office.

Here the plane could accelerate up to 15.000 kph before re-entering the atmosphere and landing normally. This would (61)__________ it possible to go from London to New York for the evening.
Cars will still be with us, although their body panels will probably be plastic so that we can fit on new ones when they are damaged, or when we get bored with the colour or style. They'll be fitted with computers to tell us how efficiently we are driving, and if there's anything wrong with the engine. And, instead of petrol, they could run on anything from electricity to methane gas.
One of the most exciting ideas of all is the hologram – a three-dimensional image created by lasers. Eventually you might be able to watch holograms (62)__________ actually move. Can you imagine watching miniature tennis players playing the Australian Open finals in your own living-room?

The period from the late 1930s to the middle 1940s is known as the Golden Age of comic books. The modern comic book came about in the early 1930s in the United States as a giveaway premium to promote the sales of a whole range of household products such as cereal and cleansers. The comic books, which were printed in bright colors to attract the attention of potential customers, proved so popular that some publishers decided to produce comic books that would come out on a monthly basis and would sell for a dime each. Though comic strips had been reproduced in publications priors to this time, the famous Funnies comic book, which was started in 1934, marked the first occasion that a serialized book of comics was attempted.
Early comic books reprinted already existing comic strips and comics based on known characters; however, publishers soon began introducing original characters developed specifically for comic books. Superman was introduced in Action Comics in 1938, and Batman was introduced a year later. The tremendous success of these superhero comic books led to the development of numerous comic books on a variety of topics, though superhero comic books predominated. Astonishingly, by 1945 approximately 160 different comic books were being published in the United States each month, and 90 per cent of the U.S children were said to read comic books on a regular basis.
