PRACTICE TEST 4 

A. There are a myriad of lifestyle issues affecting the youth of today. Such is the pressure heaped on many  school-goers to achieve academic excellence by their parents that these 1_______ (real) expectations are  causing children to become hopelessly depressed. Indeed, some, in their 2_______ (despair) to escape and their  sense of guilt at being unable reach the levels of success demanded of them by their 3_______ (push) parents,  either rebel in what is 4_______ (amount) to a cry for help, or, worse still, engage in 5_______ (harm). It is no  coincidence that suicide rates, expecially amongst young males, have been rising steadily for some time now.  These are tough times to be a teen. 

Then there are those who get hooked on the internet; the 6 _______ (virtue) world becomes their reality. For  these teens, their social circle shrinks 7_______ (drama) until, at last, their friendship sphere is limited solely to  their online 8_______ (bud). Not alone do they commonly suffer from sleep 9_______ (private) on account of  their destructive addiction to game play and net-surfing, their behaviour may become so _______ (err) and  peculiar over time as to be considered 10_______ (social) . And while they sit at their computer screens hidden  away in splendid isolation from the real world, such is the lack of exercise they get that their calorie intake far  exceeds what is necessary for them to maintain a stable weight. In essence, due to their sedentary lifestyle, their  weight 11_______ (rocket) until such time as they become morbidly obese. 

B. The standard of television programming produced in this country is in terminal decline. The 1_______  (shed) has become a meaningless term confined in its 2_______ (apply) to 3_______ (go) days when adult  content felt the full force of censorship and was not allowed to appear on the box until after 9:00 p.m.  Nowadays, however, it seems anything goes any time. And, truth told, whatever anything is, it seldom ‘goes’ for  much longer than a half hour or so at any rate before it is interrupted by a commercial break. And don’t even get  me started on those appalling 4_______ (inform) most of the networks run right the way through the night, one  after another, for up to thirty minutes at a time. lt is truly painful. Terrestrial television is now, as far as I am  concerned, a laughing stock. All the quality has been bought up by the satellite networks, with their big-money  weight behind them, but even here 5_______ (pick) are slim. In protest at the dire state of things, I have  become a converted 6_______ (net). I look to the web now to find good content. There, I can find just enough  7_______ (run) of quality programmes to prevent myself from falling into utter despair and pining for the  good old days of 8_______ (year).

For gifted students/10E1-K27/Word formation/ntd.cbn Page 9 

C. In January 2001, the 1_______ (govern) Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued its latest report on climate  change. Climate models worked out by giant super-computers had become far more reliable since the previous  report in 1995 and allowed them to 2_______ (praise) the earlier projections for global warming. Their  conclusions were that something very serious is happening and that it cannot be a natural process. The 1990s  was the hottest decade for 1,000 years and the Earth is warming faster than at any time in the last 10,000 years.  According to the report, human activities are 3_______ (equivocate) to blame for the temperature rise. The  burning of fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide and, due to deforestation, there are fewer trees to absorb this gas  and recycle it back into oxygen. Methane 4_______ (concentrate) have also gone up dramatically because of  increases in rice culture and 5_______ (cattle), both of which generate methane from 6_______ (compose)  vegetation. These greenhouses gases trap heat in the Earth‟s atmosphere and cause the temperature to rise. In  the worst case, the resulting melting of ice-caps and glaciers would cause sea levels to rise by up to 88 cm,  endangering the homes and 7_______ (lively) of tens of millions of people who live in low-lying regions.  

Unfortunately, there is far greater 8_______ (unanimous) among the world‟s scientists over the issue than  among politicians. As long ago as 1990, the IPCC recommended a 60% reduction in carbon dioxide 9_______  (emit), as the basic level required to return the planet‟s climate to a healthy level. Governments globally failed  to 10_______ (act) these proposals. Now that the dangers have been reaffirmed by the latest report, it is high  time that governments took an active interest in exploring alternative, renewable energy sources.  

D. People intuitively recognize the importance of self-esteem to their psychological health, so it isn’t  particularly remarkable that most of us try to protect and enhance it in ourselves whenever possible. What is  remarkable is that attention to self-esteem has become a(n) 1_______ (commune) concern, at least for  Americans, who see a favorable opinion of oneself as the central psychological source from which all manner of  positive outcomes spring. The corollary, that low self-esteem lies at the root of individual and thus 2_______  (society) problems and 3_______ (function), has sustained an ambitious social agenda for decades. Indeed,  campaigns to raise people’s sense of self-worth abound. Consider what transpired in California in the late 1980s.  Prodded by State Assemblyman John Vasconcellos, Governor George Deukmejian set up a task force on self esteem and personal and social responsibility. Vasconcellos argued that raising self-esteem in young people  would reduce crime, teen pregnancy, drug abuse, school 4_______ (achieve) and pollution. At one point, he  even expressed the hope that these efforts would one day help balance the state budget, a prospect predicated on  the observation that people with high 5_______ (regard) earn more than others and thus pay more in taxes.  Along with its other activities, the task force assembled a team of scholars to survey the relevant literature. The  results appeared in a 1989 volume 6_______ (title) The Social Importance of Self-Esteem, which stated that  “many, if not most, of the major problems plaguing society have roots in the low self-esteem of many of the  people who make up society.” In reality, the report contained little to support that assertion. 

E. An emerging discipline called neuroaesthetics is seeking to bring scientific 1_______ (objective) to the  study of art, and has already given us a better understanding of many 2_______ (master). The blurred  3_______ (image) of Impressionist paintings seems to stimulate the brain’s amygdala, for instance. Since the  amygdala plays a crucial role in our feelings, that finding might explain why many people find these pieces so  4_______ (move). Could the same approach also shed light on abstract twentieth-century pieces, from  Mondrian’s geometrical blocks of colour, to Pollock’s 5_______(seem) haphazard arrangements of splashed  paint on canvas? 6_______ (sceptical) believe that people claim to like such works simply because they are  famous. We certainly do have an inclination to follow the crowd. When asked to make simple 7_______  (perceive) decisions such as matching a shape to its rotated image, for example, people often choose a  definitively wrong answer if they see others doing the same. It is easy to imagine that this 8_______ (mental)  would have even more impact on a fuzzy concept like art appreciation, where there is no right or wrong answer.

 

F. Pop art was a(n) 1_______ (convention) art style in which 2_______ (common) objects such as comic  strips, soup cans and road signs were used as subject matter, and were often incorporated into the work. The pop  art movement was largely a British and American cultural phenomenon of the late 1950s and „60s. Art critic  Lawrence Alloway, referring to the prosaic 3_______ (icon) of its painting and sculpture, named the movement  pop art. It represented an attempt to return to a more objective and 4_______ (universe) accepted form of art  after the dominance in both the United States and Europe of the highly personal abstract 5_______ (express). 

For gifted students/10E1-K27/Word formation/ntd.cbn Page 10 

The art form was iconoclastic, rejecting the 6_______ (supreme) of the „high art‟ of the past and the 7_______  (pretend) of other contemporary avant-garde art. Pop art became a cultural institution because of its close  reflection of a particular social situation and because its easily 8_______ (comprehend) images were  immediately exploited by the mass media. Although the critics of pop art describe it as sensational and non 

aesthetic, its proponents saw it as an art that was democratic and not 9_______ (discriminate), bringing  together both connoisseurs and untrained inexperienced viewers. Even though public reaction to pop art was  10_______ (favour), it found critical acceptance as a form of art suited to the highly technological, mass  media-oriented society of western countries. 

G. The comedy Bringing Up Baby, on the other hand, presents practically non-stop dialogue delivered at  1_______ (neck) speed. This use of dialogue 2_______ (score) not only the dizzy quality of the character  played by Katherine Hepburn, but also the 3_______ (absurd) of the film itself and thus its humor. The  audience is bounced from gag to gag and conversation to conversation; there is no time for audience reflection.  The audience is caught up in a(n) 4_______ (wind) of activity in simply managing to follow the plot. This film  presents pure 5______ (escape) – largely due to its frenetic.
