II. READING (50 points)

For questions 26 - 35, read the text below.

Procedure for making a complaint at work

If you have a problem or complaint at work you might want to take this up with your employer. This is called raising a grievance.

Often the best way to sort out a problem is to request an informal meeting with your immediate manager to explain your concerns. You may find it is possible to sort the problem out in this way without having to take any further action. However if you do not feel your problem has been solved you may decide to raise a formal grievance. In this case you should first try to find out your company’s grievance procedure, you should be able to find details of this in your Company Handbook, HR or Personnel manual or on your company’ HR internal site.

The next step will probably be to write to your employer. Explain your problem and if you can think of a possible solution for resolving it give details of this. When you have written your letter, check that you have written the date and retain a copy so that you have a record of what you wrote. Your employer should arrange an initial meeting at a reasonable time and place to discuss your grievance. You are entitled to ask either a colleague from work or a trade union representative to go to the meeting with you. After the meeting your employer should write to you telling you what they have decided to do about your grievance.

If you don’t agree with your employer’s decision you have the right to appeal against it and this must be done in writing. A further meeting should then be called, which should be led by a more senior manager if possible. If you are still not satisfied with the decision made at this meeting you may consider whether one way to solve the problem might be through mediation. This can be done inside the company or by an external agent. Alternatively you can make an employment tribunal claim. You must do this no more than three months after the time when the event you are complaining about happened. If your application is received after this time limit the tribunal will not usually accept it.

Complete the flowchart below. Choose NO MORE THAN TWO WORDS from the text for each answer.

Raising a grievance at work

- Ask to see your immediate manager on an (26) _______ basis.

- If not satisfied, find details of your company’s grievance procedure. This may be in a handbook, (27) _______ or on an internet site.

- Write to your employer with details of your complaint. You may also suggest a (28) _______. Make sure there is a date on your letter and keep a (29) _______.

- Your employer should hold a meeting. You have the right to be accompanied by a (30) _______ or a trade union representative.

- Your employer should then inform you of the decision in writing. If you are not happy with the decision, you can (31) _______ in writing.

- Your employer should then arrange a (32) _______. Where possible this should be led by a manager who is (33) _______ to the previous one.

- If you are still not happy with the decision you can

- Think about the possibility of (34) _______.

- Make an employment tribunal claim. This must be done within (35) _______ of the date of the event.

It is also possible to get a spectacular view (40) _______ the falls from the strategic locations (41) _______  the Niagara River. 

Tourists have been visiting Niagara Falls in large numbers since the 1800’s; annual visitation now averages above 10 million visitors per year. Because of concern (42) _______ the large number of tourists would destroy the natural beauty of this scenic wonder, the State of New York in 1885 created Niagara Falls Park in order to (43) _______ the land surrounding American Falls.

For questions 56-62, read the following passage and choose the correct answer (A, B, C or D) for each of the following questions.

The ballpoint pen is the universal writing instrument of the twentieth century.

When the tiny metal ball at the writing tip is drawn across a sheet of paper, it rotates within a housing at the end of an ink reservoir and is coated with ink, which it transfers to the paper.

The first ballpoint pen was invented by John Loud in 1888. Loud has been working on a design for a nonleaking pen to mark leather and fabrics and, although his cumbersome design was similar in essence to the modern item, it was never manufactured in large quantities and the patent was allowed to expire. The first workable design was patented in 1938 and became widely accepted in 1942 when the United States Army required a pen that would not leak in high- flying aircraft.

The ball of the pen is fitted into a socket so that it rotates freely. Several internal ducts in the socket feed ink to the ball; the other end of the socket is fitted onto a metal or plastic tube that contains the ink. When the ball is pressed on paper and moved, the capillary action draws the ink from the reservoir. In effect, the ball functions as a valve to prevent overflow, and on rotation it acts as a suction pump drawing out the ink.

One problem was that as some of the ink ran out, a partial vacuum was formed between the back of the ball and ink reservoir, which cut off the supply. This was solved by making a small hole at the far end of the reservoir. As the ink at the tip is sucked out, more ink from the tube is drawn into the socket to fill its place, the vacuum being prevented by air that is drawn through the vent.

Disposable ballpoints have improved considerably in efficiency and reliability since 1938. Further improvements made recently include the production of a pen that writes at any angle, even upside down, and the development of a new ink that is erasable.

56. The word “it” in paragraph 2 refers to _______.

A. paper  B. ink reservoir  C. writing instrument D. ball

57. The word “housing” in paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to _______.

A. point  B. residence  C. case D. orbit

58. It can be inferred from the passage that there was an interest in designing a new type of pen because the old ones _______.

A. were too big B. were expensive C. leaked D. cracked

59. It can be inferred in paragraph 3 that the ballpoint pen first gained popularity among _______.

A. military personnel B. businesspeople C. scientists D. artists

60. Which of the following statements is true of the ball in a ballpoint pen?

A. It is fitted directly into the tube. B. It controls the flow of ink.

C. It has a small hole. D. It contains a reservoir of ink.

61. What was the purpose of the small hole mentioned in paragraph 5?

A. To empty excess ink  B. To improve ink flow to the tip of the pen.

C. To reduce the amount of air in the pen D. To allow the reservoir to be refilled.

62. Until recently one limitation of ballpoint pens mentioned in paragraph 6 was _______.

A. their inability to function upside down  B. the cost of replacing empty reservoirs

C. the fragility of the point D. corrosion due to the ink

A. Tara

I’m a poet and I spend a large part of my life travelling around the world. I have a laptop computer, which means I can work on trains and buses, wherever I happen to be. My poems always begin in a notebook (and I mean the paper variety) where they stay for a while, moving from notes I have made, sometimes just individual words and phrases, to more developed pieces. The only way I can keep in touch with my family and also stay in contact with other writers is by using e-mail. Actually, I also use e-mail for sending work - poems, articles, reviews - to magazines, newspapers and publishers. Through my PC I am in constant communication with writers all over the world and we are able to swap poems and ideas within seconds. It’s brilliant.

B. Maisse

I’m a surgeon and I work in a large teaching hospital. Although I have a PC at home, I also have a little pocket PC. I carry my personal digital assistant (PDA) around with me all day as it’s small enough to fit into my pocket. I use it like a diary and it has an alarm which I can set to remind me about meetings with other doctors in the team. I wouldn’t be nearly as organized without it; having all the necessary information in one place is invaluable. There are lots of things available over the internet which are great for doctors. There’s always a lot of reading to be done, and it’s often cheaper to download journals online than buy the printed copy. I also use the internet to find out about the latest discoveries in drugs and developments in medical research.

C. Konrad

I’m my own boss and I run my business from home. I bought a computer when I set up the company several years ago, and I know I couldn’t operate without one. In any case everyone expects you to have a computer these days. The first thing I do in the morning is check my e-mail. I get about 40 e-mails a day; using e-mails is often much more convenient for communication with my customers. It means you can choose when to reply, unlike the telephone, which interrupts whatever you happen to be doing when it rings. My computer helps me manage time better, but it is not as personal as a phone call. I also use the internet for finding out what other companies like mine are offering. Once upon a time I would have asked for a company’s brochure or information pack, but nowadays most companies advertise on their own websites.

D. Suzy

I am 12 years old and in my first year at secondary school. My parents have recently bought a new computer, so they let me have their old one, which is still very good. It has made a big difference to the way I do things, particularly my school work. It is a quick and easy way to do my homework. Instead of having to draw pictures I can get them from the art work package on the computer and just add them to whatever it is I need to illustrate. It also saves mess - no rubbing out, no cutting things up. My computer also has an internet connection which gives me access to all sorts of information. I can also use the encyclopedia and dictionary that are on the computer. Lastly, my computer has lots of games which I can play after I have done my homework.

E. Fergus

I love computers. I owned one of the early laptops and today I have both a PC and a laptop. My life as a freelance musician would be a real struggle without my computers. I have to run myself like a small business, and I simply wouldn’t be able to do that without a computer. You have to keep in touch with music agents, concert promoters and conductors, and there are lots of letters to write. I use my computer to send out information about myself each week by e-mail. I can even send a picture of myself that way too. It saves a lot of money on stationery, stamps and so on. I also keep all my accounts up-to-date on it and use the internet to research new music. The other thing I like about having a computer is that being a professional musician can be a solitary business, because you spend a lot of time on your own at home. My e-mail is like having a friend in the flat.
