B.  So most of the bees die during the summer. 

C.  Then they will act as nurse to newborn bees. 

D.  They do this by controlling the temperature. 

E.  Slowly they move further and further away from the hive. 

F.  She can live for five years and lays eggs for future generations. 

G.  They will make sure that only bees in the family enter. 


Honey Bees 

Honey bees are incredible insects and the worker bee perhaps the most interesting of all. You can be forgiven for not knowing about the lifestyle of these creatures while you enjoy your honey at breakfast. So here are some facts to consider the next time you buy a jar. 

We all know that activity in the hive focuses on the queen. (46) _____ But it is the workers, who have much shorter lives during the summer period and may only survive for up to six weeks, who do all the work. 

Worker bees are female and during the first few weeks of their lives, when they are referred to as 'house bees', they will take on many different duties. (47) _____ For example, they will clean the cells where they were born and make sure bees that have died are removed. (48) _____ Finally, they will make sure the needs of the queen bee are met. 

Towards the second half of their lives, the focus of their duties changes. They will begin by acting as guard to the hive. (49) _____ Then they will move on to becoming 'field bees' when they will leave the hive to collect nectar. However, this journey does not start until they have made sure they will recognise the hive on their return. 

They start by taking a short flight in front of the hive, flying backwards and forwards, up and down, getting a clear idea of where the hive is and what it looks like. (50) _____ This careful approach is probably very wise as their search for nectar will take them a long way from home. 

Part 2: Choose the most suitable heading from the box for each paragraph. There are TWO EXTRA headings that you DO NOT need to use. (5 points)  

A.  Research holds the key to success  

B.  New and improved techniques  

C.  A new kind of athlete            

D.  New equipment has enhanced performance 

E.  Athletes are what they eat               

F.  A tailor-made program will help  G. Pushing the limit to record-breaking 

Question 51. Paragraph 1:______________ 

A world record is every athlete’s dream, but the hard-won records of a few years ago are mostly just today’s qualifying times. Roger Bannister’s famous four-minute mile of 1956 has been beaten by nearly 15 seconds, while almost an hour and twenty minutes has been taken off the women’s marathon since 1953. ‘Faster, higher, stronger’ is the Olympic motto, and today’s competitors continue to push back the boundaries of what the body can achieve. But one wonders if this can continue.  

Question 52. Paragraph 2:______________ 

The last forty years have seen many important technological advances. For example, since the introduction of strong, flexible fiberglass poles, over a meter has been added to the pole vault record. There have also been important developments in the design the running shoe. And while a shoe won’t actually make someone run faster, modern shoes do mean many more miles of comfortable, injury-free training.  

Question 53. Paragraph 3:______________ 

Pushing back the limits now depends more on science, technology and medicine than anything else. Athletic technique, training programs and diets are all being studied to find ways of taking a few more seconds off or adding a few more centimetres to that elusive world record. It seems that natural ability and hard work are no longer enough.  

Question 54. Paragraph 4:______________ 

The search to find more efficient ways of moving goes on. Analysis of an athlete’s style is particularly useful for events like jumping and throwing. Studies show that long jumpers need to concentrate not on the speed of approach, as once thought, but on the angle their bodies make with the ground as they take off. However, the rules governing each sport limit advances achieved by new styles. For instance, only one-footed takeoffs are allowed in the high jump.  Question 55. Paragraph 5:______________ 

In the future, it should be possible to develop a more individual approach to training programs. Athletes will keep detailed diaries and collect data to help predict the point when training becomes overtraining, the cause of many injuries. If athletes put all the information into a database, it may then be possible to predict patterns and to advise them individually when they should cut down.  


Part 3: Read the passage and decide which option A, B, C or D best fits each space. (10 points) 

History is full of inventions that looked good at the time, but which nobody wanted to buy. New ideas may (56) _______ for one of several reasons. Firstly, there are those which do not actually work very well when put to the (57) _______. Then, there are the ideas which are good in themselves, but which do not fulfill a real (58) _______. In other words, people can (59) _______ without them, so do not buy them. A third group are those which are too expensive to manufacture. But none of these reasons explains why, in the 1990s, no new technology was successful in replacing the compact disc as the (60) _______ of packaging recorded music. 

     The 1990s was a period of rapid technological change, particularly in the area of electronic (61) _______ for the home. During this time, a number of alternative technologies were invented that could have replaced the CD, but none of them (62) _______ on. The new ideas worked, were not costly to make and would have provided consumers with (63) _______ quality recordings. Despite all this, few people bought them. And this can only be explained by the (64) _______ that people who had invested in CD players and discs of their favorite music did not think the improvement in quality on 

(65) _______ was great enough to make it worth the effort and expense of changing. 

Question 56.    A. ascend   B. fail     C. succeed      D. arise

Question 59.    A. be   B. make     C. do       D. have 

Question 60.    A. function     B. purpose  C. means        D. container

Question 62.    A. kept     B. held     C. caught       D. took 

Question 63.    A. broader  B. greater  C. further      D. higher 

Question 64.    A. fact     B. answer   C. reason       D. response 

Question 65.    A. production   B. demand   C. offer        D. available 


Part 4: Read the passage and choose the best answer A, B, C or D to each question. (10 points) 

While watching sports on TV, the chances are that children will see professional players cheating, having tantrums, fighting, or abusing officials. In addition, it is highly likely that children will be aware of well-known cases of sportspeople being caught using drugs to improve their performance. The danger of all this is that it could give children the idea that winning is all that counts and you should win at all costs. Good behavior and fair play are not the message that comes across. Instead, it looks as if cheating and bad behavior are reasonable ways of getting what you want. This message is further bolstered by the fact that some of these sportspeople acquire enormous fame and wealth, making it seem they are being handsomely rewarded either despite or because of their bad behavior. 

What can parents do about this? They can regard sport on television as an opportunity to discuss attitudes and behavior with their children. When watching sports together, if parents see a player swearing at the referee, they can get the child’s opinion on that behavior and discuss whether a player’s skill is more important than their behavior. Ask what the child thinks the player’s contribution to the team is. Point out that no player can win a team game on their own, so it is important for members to work well together. 

Another thing to focus on is what the commentators say. Do they frown on bad behavior from players, think it’s amusing or even consider it’s a good thing? What about the officials? If they let players get away with a clear foul, parents can discuss with children whether this is right and what effect it has on the game. Look too at the reactions of coaches and managers. Do they accept losing with good grace or scowl and show a bad attitude? Parents can use this to talk about attitudes to winning and losing and to remind children that both are part of sport. 

However, what children learn from watching sports is by no means all negative and parents should make sure they accentuate the positives too. They should emphasize to children the high reputation that well-behaved players have, not just with their teammates but also with spectators and the media. They can focus on the contribution made by such players during a game, discussing how valuable they are in the team. In the interviews after a game, point out to a child that the well-behaved sportspeople do not gloat when they win or sulk when they lose. And parents can stress how well these people conduct themselves in their personal lives and the good work they do for others when not playing. In other words, parents should get their children to focus on the positive role models, rather than the antics of the badly behaved but often more publicized players. 

Question 66. Which of the following does the passage mainly discuss? 

A.  The importance of team spirit in sport 

B.  The influence of model sportspeople on children 

C.  Moral lessons from watching sports for children

B.  It has made sport games more popular in the media. 

C.  It is an integral part of professional sport competition. 

D.  Its harmful message to children should be addressed by parents. 

Question 69. According to paragraph 2, what should parents teach their children? A. Disrespect for referees is frowned upon by most viewers. 

B.  Collaboration is fundamental to any team’s success. 

C.  A player’s performance is of greater value than his behavior. 

D.  A team with badly-behaved players will not win a game. 

Question 70. The word “grace” in paragraph 3 is closest in meaning to _______. 

A.  kindness        B. generosity       C. etiquette        D. civility 

Question 71. Which of the following about sport is NOT mentioned in the passage? A. A player’s foul can go unpunished despite the presence of officials. 

B.  Commentators may have different attitudes to players’ bad behaviour.   

C.  Some players manage to play fair with a view to advertising themselves. 

D.  Coaches and managers’ reactions to their teams’ defeat can give children food for thought. 

Question 72. The word “They” in paragraph 4 refers to _______. 

    A. children         B. positives            C. players      D. parents 

Question 73. What should parents NOT emphasize to their children about well-behaved players? 

A.  Their contribution to the overall performance of their team 

B.  Their strange behaviour in their private lives 

C.  Their calm expressions after a game 

D.  Their good deeds when they are not playing 

Question 74. The word “antics” in paragraph 4 is closest in meaning to _______. 

A.  hatred      B. sorrow           C. rebellion        D. silliness
