Questions 51-60: Read the passage and choose the best answer to each question that follows. Write A, B, C or D on your answer sheet. 

It is estimated that over 99 percent of all species that ever existed have become extinct. What causes extinction? When a species is no longer adapted to a changed environment, it may perish. The exact causes of a species' death vary from situation to situation. Rapid ecological change may make an environment hostile to a species. For example, temperatures may change and a species may not be able to adapt. Food Resources may be affected by environmental changes, which will then cause problems for a species requiring these resources. Other species may become better adapted to an environment, resulting in competition and, eventually, in the death of a species. 

The fossil record reveals that extinction has occurred throughout the history of Earth. Recent analyses have also revealed that on some occasions many species became extinct at the same time - a mass extinction. One of the best-known examples of mass extinction occurred 65 million years ago with the demise of dinosaurs and many other forms of life. Perhaps the largest mass extinction was the one that occurred 225 million years ago. When approximately 95 percent of all species died, mass extinctions can be caused by a relatively rapid change in the environment and can be worsened by the close interrelationship of many species. If, for example, something were to happen to destroy much of the plankton in the oceans, then the oxygen content of Earth would drop, affection even organisms not living in the oceans. Such a change would probably lead to a mass extinction. 

Questions 19-20: Choose the word whose stress pattern is different from that of the others in the same 

line and write A, B, C or D on your answer sheet. 

19. A. describe 

20. A. evidence 

B. predict 

B. pollutant 

C. amount 

C. encourage

D. erosion

Questions 36-40: The passage below contains 5 mistakes (only ONE word for ONE mistake). Find out the mistakes and correct them. Write the answers on your answer sheet. 



Most environmental pollution on Earth comes from humans and its inventions. Take, for example, the automobile or that miraculous human-made material, plastic. Today, automobile emissions are a major source of air pollution contributing to climate change, and plastics fill our ocean, creating a significant health hazard to marine animals. 

And what about the electric lightbulb, what is thought to be one of the greatest human inventions of all time? Electric light can be a beautiful thing, guide us home when the sun goes down, keeping us safe and making our homes cozy and bright. Therefore, like carbon dioxide emissions and plastic, too much of a good thing has started to negatively impact the environment. Light pollution, the excessive or appropriate use of outdoor artificial light, is affecting human health, wildlife behavior, and our ability to observe stars and other celestial objects.

One interesting, and controversial, finding is that extinctions during the past 250 million years tended to be more intense every 26 million years. This periodic extinction might be due to intersection of the Earth's orbit with a cloud of comets, but this theory is purely speculative. Some researchers have also speculated that extinction may often be random. That is, certain species may be eliminated and others may survive for no particular reason. A species' survival may have nothing to do with its ability or inability to adapt. If so, some of evolutionary history may reflect a sequence of essentially random
