WILL SUBSTITUTE HORN SAVE RHINO'S SKINS?
Last year thieves broke into a Scottish stately home and stole one thing: a rhino horn trophy, which at 1.5 metres was the longest in the world. Meanwhile, in China, pharmaceuticals (31)______ have been building up collections of antqiue cups, bowls and figurines made from rhino horn, for the sole (32)______ of smashing them to powder to make the (33) _____ ingredient of many of their medicines. And in Zimbabwe, 34 poachers have so far died this year in (34)_____ of the black rhino.
'It's amazing the lengths people will go to to get rhino horn,' said Lyster, of the World Wide Fund for Nature. These lengths (35)_____ why the rhino could be extinct within 10 years if trade in horns to the Far East is not stopped. This week, conservationists are meeting in Switzerland to plan a campaign to persuade those countries where rhino horn is part of the traditional medicine to switch to substitutes such as water buffalo horn.
The biggest threat to the survival of the rhinoceros is the refusal of four countries - China, Thailand, South Korea and Thaiwan - to enforce a ban (36)_____ domestic trading in rhino horn. Similar bans have worked well in Japan, Hong Kong and nearby Macau.
Rhino is included in many patent remedies for disorders ranging from high fever to nosebleeds. Horn is made (37)______ keratin, and has no proven medicinal powers. 'If you want the same effect you might as well chew your fingernails,' said Esmond Bradley Martin, a world authority on rhino horn who has just returned from China. Traditional substitutes, such as horn from bufffalo or saiga antelope, are (38)______ second best.
China is the country where the consumers of rhino horn are the largest, many people are making medicines for both home consumption and export to other Far Eastern countries. Martin found that many places have stocks of 10,000 kilograms of horns. This represents 3,500 rhinos, or the entire population of African black rhinos. These places use 650 kilograms a year. Traditional medicines made outside the official factories could consume much more.
'This is a (an) (39)______ battle,' said Lyster. (40)______ the battle may be harder than that against the trade in ivory, for there is a difference between the two commodities, Ivory is a luxury; rhino horn, people believe, could save the life of their child.

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 55 to 64.
The weather phenomenon called El Nino was first recorded in the 1500s when fishermen in South America noticed that near Christmas some years the water was noticeably warmer than others. They named this El Nino, or the infant, as it happened near the celebration of the birth of Christ.
Only in recent years has there been any serious investigations into the causes and results of El Nino. The 1997 - 1998 El Nino was the first to be studied extensively. Scientists from France, Japan, Korea and Taiwan combined the various readings they had from satellite and surface measurements of wind speeds and water temperatures to make the Tropical Atmosphere Ocean Array. This combined information allowed them to see the overall patterns of an El Nino and helped them predict when one was starting.
Weather pattern rely heavily on the operation of the "planetary heat engine". Essentially, this means that because the sun is closest to the equator the seawater in that region is the warmest. The warm water evaporates and forms clouds, which move toward the poles powered by their heat. These atmospheric loops, which move heat from the tropics to the poles, are called "connective cells". Without this process the equatorial regions would be hotter than they are and the north and south would be much colder.
The wind in the central Pacific tends to blow from the east. This pushes water from South America towards Australia and Indonesia. As a result, sea levels have been found to be up to 60 centimetres higher in the west. The water that is pushed westward from the South American coast is replaced by colder water, which has a high nutrient level that consequently attracts fish. This makes the waters off Peru and Ecuador good fishing grounds.
An El Nino happens when the winds weaken and sea levels drop. The warmer water moves east and less water evaporates to form clouds. The results of this are twofold. The warmer water in the east reduces the number of fish and the lack of rain causes droughts. This can cause problems such as the forest fires that have plagued Indonesia and Australia in recent years. Additionally, El Nino is thought to be one of the causes of hurricanes that have devastated Central and North West America.
As the population has increased the effects of changing weather have had a greater impact. People are living in places, often in areas more likely to be affected by adverse weather, than they ever did before and in increased densities. This means that natural disasters affect more people. Natural resources are being used closer to their limits, so small changes in their availability can cause disruption. For example, in the past, South American fishermen could make a profit even during an EL Nino, but modern industrial fishing needs larger fish stocks to be profitable.
Knowing when an El Nino is developing allows people to make plans to lessen its negative effects. The system of buoys and satellites monitoring the Pacific allows scientists to predict the start of the 12 to 18 month El Nino cycle. As a result people can prepare. For example, in North East Brazil during the 1987 El Nino, farmers only got 15% of their normal grain harvest, but in 1992, when the government advised them to plant fast maturing plants, they got 82%.
El Nino is only one factor in the complex inter-relations that cause weather patterns, but it appears to be a major factor. By monitoring the phenomenon, we can limit its effects and avoid disasters and droughts.
