III. READING (6 pts.)

PART 1: Read the passage MY INTRODUCTION TO THEATRE and CIRCLE the letter A, B, C or D to indicate the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the spaces.

My only previous exposure to theatre had been lavish productions staged at large West End venues where no (1) had been spared on the sumptuous costumes and scenery. So I was quite taken aback when I accompanied a friend to a play at her local community center.

For a start, I hadn’t (2) for the ugly stark concrete architecture of the center. My realization that the stage was simply one corner of an ordinary classroom adorned with nothing more than a few stacks of empty plastic milk crates (3) my expectations still further. I was on the verge of walking out when the small cast of scruffily-attired actors appeared. However, it was immediately obvious that these performers had no need of fine costumes and props; they were clearly in their element. I was whisked away on a (4) tour of the imagination, with the cast conjuring up a magical fantasy world that left me simply spellbound and more emotionally involved than I could ever have imagined. What an experience!

(Cambridge English: Proficiency)

2. A. expected B. bargained C. assumed D. envisaged

PART 2: Read the passage IS WORK BAD FOR YOU? and CIRCLE the letter A, B, C or D to indicate the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the spaces.

Popular perception is that working conditions are now so over-regulated. The only people likely to be injured at work are bosses, strangled by (5)  tape. But beware a hidden epidemic raging in British workplaces. In this post-industrial age, when most jobs are in light industry, information technology and the service sector, we expect working life to be relatively comfortable and at the very (6) safe. We don’t expect to be maimed, laid off for life or to work ourselves into the ground.

Think again. In the UK there are still 1.6 million workplace injuries every year as well as 2.2 million cases of ill health caused by work. Last year 350 people died as a result of building site accidents, a large increase on previous years. But some of the worst dangers are the hidden ones. 400,000 cases of asthma are caused by working conditions, (7)  to high levels of dust or traffic pollution, and asbestos still kills over 4,000 people a year. There are no (8)at present requiring owners to record the presence of asbestos, meaning that builders and firefighters have no way of anticipating the problem. However, a non- profit organization has taken up the issues with a new database launched in conjunction with the Trade Union Congress.

PART 3: Read the passage EUTROPHICATION and CIRCLE the letter A, B, C or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

All plants need nutrients, but an excess of nutrients can be lethal to the ecosystem. Water bodies such as lakes or estuaries naturally have certain amounts of nutrients, and are rich in species. Species- rich ecosystems have a high level of biodiversity. However, when chemical nutrients infiltrate water in marine habitats, the plants will begin to grow without restraint and then decay rapidly. This process, known as eutrophication, can disturb the ecological balance and eventually result in severe reductions in water quality. Inspections of lakes and reservoirs around the world demonstrate that 54% of lakes in Asia are eutrophic; 53% in Europe; 48% in North America; and 28% in Africa. Today, eutrophication or what some call nutrient pollution is the number one water quality problem around the world.

In the 1950s, eutrophication was acknowledged as a waste problem in several lakes in Europe and North America although it was not immediately clear what the causes were. It had taken place over a short period of time in these lakes, and this shocked scientists because eutrophication had normally been known as a natural process that develops over thousands of years as a lake or river becomes

older. Scientists, who observed the excessive growth of plants and algae, often called an algal bloom, studied the phenomenon intensely from the 1960s to the 1970s. Their research pointed to the presence of large amounts of plant nutrients, including phosphorous, nitrogen and carbon, which are vital for life in the river and sea. The nutrients were traced to human activities: runoff from livestock waste, the release of domestic sewage and industrial wastewater. Moreover, in some ecosystems, nutrients had been deliberately added for purposes of enrichment. The large amounts of nutrients accumulated and their compounds acted as a stimulant to uncontrolled phytoplankton growth.

The unlimited growth of phytoplankton species provokes profound changes in the lake or river. Marine plants and plant particles breathe out oxygen during photosynthesis. When eutrophication occurs, however, the excessive amount of phytoplankton species spread over the surface of waters and block the sunlight, so the marine plants are not able to photosynthesize, then the amount of oxygen is reduced. When the dead plants and animals are decomposed, oxygen is consumed, therefore the dissolved oxygen is also reduced greatly. The lack of oxygen causes many organisms to suffocate and numbers of dead fish begin to appear in the water, and more animal species die out. The water loses its transparency, sometimes changing into a murky brown, red or orange color, and this phenomenon is called “red tide”. If the oxygen becomes completely depleted, bacteria called Clostridium botulinum becomes abundant and causes botulism, a disease of the nervous system that is often fatal. The bacteria poisons and kills birds and mammals that eat any existing phytoplankton in the water body. With so much death taking place, scientists call anaerobic waters “dead zones”. Ultimately, these effects have an impact on human beings.

The swift eutrophication in Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes, was the subject of much concern and instigated experimental research. In 1968, the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA) was established as a field station and had been added various nutrients to determine which combination of nutrients was the key to controlling eutrophication. The most interesting experiment was a lake that was divided into two with a plastic curtain. One half was left alone while the other half was divided into three parts and each fed carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous. The lake was monitored for 8 years, and it was observed that the portion receiving phosphorous had eutrophic algal blooms. The parts containing carbon and nitrogen did not have those. The American government has since earmarked billions of dollars for a phosphate control program.

PART 4: Read the passage MARRIAGE PARTNERS and CIRCLE the letter A, B, C or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

“You’ll never change!” I yelled at him one day. He looked at me so coldly. “Constance, if you weren’t who you are, I wouldn’t have to, would I?”

I ask you though, was it my fault? When I met Oliver I was nineteen. I had been changing for years – up a bit, out a bit, you name it, I changed it. I had been changing practically all the time since I was one day old. How was I supposed to know that the party was over? Now I know people don’t alter, except for a little around the edges, once they are grown. But I didn’t know that then. Neither did he. We got on horribly from the day that we met, but both of us thought that things would change for the better. I thought I’d change him. He thought he’d change me.

Well…Why didn’t anyone tell us? I was in full-time education for fifteen years. I learned all sorts of things I’ve never needed since. But the one thing they could have taught me that might have made a difference to my life is that the only good test of whether a marriage is going to last is whether the two of you get on from the start. Did you know that? Probably not. You are probably still worrying about all those other old things they were forever warning people about: differences in age, race, class, religion. Problems with money. But it turns out that none of these things is important. Honestly. When it comes to the crunch of choosing a partner, nothing is as important as whether in the first months you had one another seriously in mind, the two of you chummed along amiably to granny’s party or round the shops, down the allotment or up to the Odeon. Be warned. If you ever fetched up, even only once or twice, snarling at one another over the spice racks in the delicatessen, or having a heated discussion behind his mother’s garage doors, or even just sulking quietly in between phone calls, you may as well not have bothered. The marriage is doomed.

Why isn’t anyone told? Why aren’t engagements compulsory? Why don’t your family and friends have to submit signed affidavits on your behalf? Everyone frets about the breakdown of family life, with parents drinking themselves silly and children getting bashed up. Most of the loony-bins are bursting at the seams and practically every marriage you know ends up in disaster. Yet here’s this one simple fact no school-leaver ever knows because the morons who arrange the syllabus are so busy stuffing your schooldays with things like capillary action in plants and long division that they never even think to mention it. They ought to be going round putting up posters!

I feel quite bitter. I could have got along without long division. In fact, I have. As for capillary action – for heaven’s sake! There are instructions on my house-plant labels, and anyway, I’m not an idiot. Left to myself I would have cracked the system in the end. The worst that could have happened in the meantime is that I might have lost a couple of cinerarias or a gloxinia.

But not knowing how to choose the right husband the first time around has almost done for me. And countless others. Because, after all, it is as often as not the very thing that makes two people utterly wretched together that attracts them to one another in the first place. It was Oliver’s sheer gloominess that appealed to me. I saw it as a challenge! I didn’t know that people couldn’t change. I was convinced that I could make him happy. And it’s a good job that Oliver’s not the altruistic sort, or I might be suspicious on his behalf, wondering why my dizzy personality appealed to him. At least I can be pretty sure the same diseased notion wasn’t swimming round his head while he was eyeing me. “Oh goody! An opportunity to teach a flighty girl, a) how to be reasonable, and b) – a useful corollary – how to think”

I got the crummier end of the bargain. It might be hard cheese to end up with me, but it’s a truly terrible thing to love the very quality in a man that makes him so sombre and inflexible that you can’t live with him… I’ve learned a lot since Olly left. I’ve learned that, just as there is a curse on those who marry without love, there’s hell in store for those who part without hatred. I’m warning you, don’t risk it. It doesn’t work. All that will happen is that you, like me, will find yourself perched on the airport railings year after year, waiting for someone who is implacable.
