When you purchase cut flowers from your local florist, do you think 0. on (on  about)  where they came from? Common senses might tell you that they were grown close by, because cut flowers can’t survive a very long trip. The reality, therefore, is that your cut flowers might come from places like the Netherlands, Ecuador, or Kenya!

Flowers can now travel long distances thanks for air freight1 and high-tech cool systems. Even the most delicate orchid can be shipped to arrive freshly in most places on Earth. This allows Americans, for example, to import some 70 percent of the cut flowers they buy.

The country that exports the most cut flowers are the Netherlands, which dominates the world cut-flower trade. There, seven auction houses4 handle about 60 percent of the world’s cut-flower exports. Some auction houses are very large indeed - Aalsmeer, near Amsterdam, is an auction house in the sense which Tokyo is a city or Everest a mountain. Its scale is daunting. About 120 soccer fields would fill their main hangar, which holds five auction halls. Nineteen million cut flowers are sold here on an average day. 

The Netherlands is also a world leader in developing new flower varieties. Dutch companies and the government invest a considerable amount of money in flower research. Their scientists try to find ways to lengthen a flowers vase life. They also try to strengthen flowers to prevent them from damaging while traveling on rough roads and to strengthen flowers’ natural fragrance.

III. Complete each of the following sentences with ONE suitable particle. Write your answers on the Answer Sheet. (10 pts)

9. Gall’s qualified for the job, but her lack of experience will count _______ her.

10. It’s a completely new beginning and perhaps things will soon start to look _______.

IV. Use the word given in CAPITALS at the end of some of the lines to form a word that fits in the gap in the same line. Write your answers on the Answer Sheet. (10 pts)


When an old neighbor of mine moved into a nursing home, I decided to visit her one Sunday. I wasn’t sure what to expect: Would she feel (1. PRESS) _______ at having to leave her own home?

COMPANION) _______ to the elderly residents, and this he did with great success. Apparently, Winston visited three times a week and lifted everyone’s (4. MORAL) _______.

As for the dogs, they love the attention and the treats they get! 

Don’t think twice about it. I (10. COURAGE) _______ anyone who has spare time and a placid pooch to enquire about getting involved. Even if, like me, you don’t have a pet, there are ways you can help. Look into it – you won’t regret it.

Stars could be invisible within 20 years as light pollution brightens night skies

The Herefordshire hills basked in brilliant sunshine last weekend. Summer had arrived and the skies were cloudless, conditions that would once have heralded succeeding nights of coal-dark heavens sprinkled with brilliant stars, meteorites and planets.

(1) _______

The increased use of light-emitting diodes (LED) and other forms of lighting are now brightening the night sky at a dramatic rate, scientists have found. Indiscriminate use of external lighting, street illumination, advertising, and illuminated sporting venues is now blinding our view of the stars.

(2) _______

“The night sky is part of our environment and it would be a major deprivation if the next generation never got to see it, just as it would be if they never saw a bird’s nest,” said Martin Rees, the astronomer royal. “You don’t need to be an astronomer to care about this. I am not an ornithologist but if there were no songbirds in my garden, I’d feel impoverished.”

(3) _______

The introduction of a carefully selected package of planning rules to control obtrusive light – backed by legal clout and penalties for non-compliance – could make major differences, the committee stressed. The alternative would be to lose sight of night skies “painted with unnumbered sparks,” to quote Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.

(4) _______

Gazing at a night sky crossed by a glittering Milky Way has become a splendour of another age, Kyba told the Observer. “A couple of generations ago, people would have been confronted regularly with this glittering vision of the cosmos – but what was formerly universal is now extremely rare. Only the world’s richest people, and some of the poorest, experience that any more. For everybody else, it’s more or less gone.”

(5) _______

“Measures like that would have an enormous impact,” he added.

(6) _______

Yet action is now urgently needed. Apart from its astronomical and cultural impact, light pollution is having serious ecological consequences. Sea turtles and migrating birds are guided by moonlight. Light pollution causes them to get confused and lose their way. Insects, a key source of food for birds and other animals, get drawn to artificial lights and are immediately killed upon contact with the source.

(7) _______

“We are becoming starved of red and infra-red light and that has serious implications,” he said. “When reddish light shines on our bodies, it stimulates mechanisms including those that break down high levels of sugar in the blood or boost melatonin production. Since the introduction of fluorescent lighting and later LEDs, that part of the spectrum has been removed from artificial light and I think it is playing a part in the waves of obesity and rises in diabetes cases we see today.”

(8) _______

“It’s going to take a huge effort to change the face of the planet and turn LEDs into more friendly lighting,” said Fosbury. It’s going to be a big job but we need to do it because it is having a very damaging effect on human health.”

A. Rees is a founder of the all-party parliamentary group for dark skies which recently produced a report calling for a host of measures to counter the curse of light pollution. These include proposals to appoint a minister for dark skies, create a commission for dark skies and set strict standards for the density and direction of lighting.

B. The increased use of light-emitting diodes is obscuring our view of the Milky Way as well as taking a toll on human and wildlife health.

C. The problem is that light pollution is still not perceived by the public to be a threat. As Professor Oscar Corcho, of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, has put it: “The negative consequences of light pollution are as unknown by the population as those of smoking in the 80s.”

D. In 2016, astronomers reported that the Milky Way was no longer visible to a third of humanity and light pollution has worsened considerably since then. At its current rate most of the major constellations will be indecipherable in 20 years, it is estimated. The loss, culturally and scientifically, will be intense.

E. UCL researchers are preparing to install additional infrared lamps in hospitals and intensive care units to see if they have an effect on the recovery of patients who would otherwise be starved of light from this part of the spectrum.

F. Nevertheless, the introduction of only a modest number of changes to lighting could make a considerable improvement, Kyba argued. These moves would include ensuring outdoor lights are carefully shielded, point downwards, have limits placed on their brightness, and are not predominantly blue-white but have red and orange components.

G. The case against light pollution goes further. Bluish emissions of LEDs are almost entirely lacking any red or near infrared light, said Prof Robert Fosbury, of the Institute of Ophthalmology at University College London (UCL).

H. It was not to be. The night sky was not so much black as dark grey with only a handful of stars glimmering against this backdrop. The Milky Way – which would once have glittered across the heavens – was absent. Summer’s advent had again revealed a curse of modern times: light pollution.

I. Research by physicist Christopher Kyba, of the German Centre for Geosciences has revealed that light pollution is now causing the night sky to brighten at a rate of around 10% a year, an increase that threatens to obliterate the sight of all but the most brilliant stars in a generation. A child born where 250 stars are visible at night today would only be able to see about 100 by the time they reach 18.


I. Complete each of the following sentences in such a way that it is closest in meaning to the one printed before it, using the word given in CAPITALS. (10 pts)

1. Very few tickets are left, so book now. (HARDLY)

Book now, because ________________________________________________________________ left.

2. The headmaster was determined to stop all bullying at the school. (END)

4. How could I possibly refuse to help all those children who need medical aid? (BACK)

How could I possibly ___________________________________ all those children needing medical aid?

5. That child wants to be the centre of attention all the time. (SPOTLIGHT)

That child wants ____________________________________________________________ all the time.

6. Erica has asked for a transfer but there’s little chance that it’ll be granted. (STANDS)

7. We sometimes wonder if Marina lives here at all, she is so seldom around. (RARELY)

8. We are willing but unable to help you because we simply haven’t got the funds. (LIKE)

9. The coral is going to die if we don’t take immediate steps to protect it from pollution. (OTHERWISE)

10. “Could we reschedule the meeting for next Thursday?” the lawyer asked her client. (RESCHEDULED)

II. Write a paragraph to answer the question below. (10 pts)

You should write about 150 words on the Answer Sheet.
