Part 1: Read the passage and fill each gap with the correct form of the word in brackets. There is an example at the beginning (0). Write your answers in the corresponding numbered boxes provided. (1 point)

Black Widow Spider

The black widow spider's notoriety is not without foundation. However, an element of exaggeration has led to certain _misconception_ (0. concept) regarding its evil nature.

Firstly, this spider is not as dangerous as it is often thought. While it is indeed one of the most venomous species of spider, its venom being fifteen times stronger than that of the prairie rattlesnake, its bite injects such as amount of venom by     (1. compare) that it is unlikely to kill humans. In fact,

      (2. fatal) are rare.

Black widows bite only if they are touched or their web is threatened. Furthermore, only the adult female is poisonousThose most at risk from the female are the spider's natural pray-insects-and male black widow spiders. The latter are vulnerable as the female is        (3. solitude) by nature, and has been known to kill and eat the male after mating. Such occurrences are rare, but they explain how the spider got its name - and its reputation.

Nevertheless, the unpleasant effects of this spider's bite should not be       (4. estimate), and if you live in a temperate climate and have a fireplace in your home, it is advisable to take       (5. caution). Black widow spiders often inhabit wood piles, so you should wear gloves when handling firewood. Furthermore, since black widow spiders are resistant to many insecticides, you should regularly clean out likely hiding places.

PART 2 (1 point)

Read the passage and think of the word which best fits each blank. Use only ONE word in each blank. There is an example at the beginning (0). Write your answers in the corresponding numbered boxes provided.

Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955)

Albert Einstein is (0) _one_ of the best-known scientists of the 20th century. Yet he was not a particularly good student. At school in Munich, he got reasonable grades in nearly (1)                subjects and was outstanding in mathematics and physics but he disliked doing (2)         he was told. He didn't like exams and (3)       did he like attending classes, so he (4)  school early.

(5)   filing the entrance exam, Einstein was eventually admitted (6)    the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich in 1896. Although he did fairly well, he was (7)        to get a job in a university after graduation, mainly because he (8)    thought to be extremely lazy. Instead, he worked in a secondary school, (9)    he taught mathematics and physics both of which he was good at.

Some two years later, in 1902, Einstein got a job as a low grade clerk in Bern. In 1905 his special theory of relativity was published – one of the greatest intellectual (10)       in the history of human thought.

Part 3: Read the passage and choose the letter A, B, C or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the following questions. Write your answers in the corresponding numbered boxes provided. (1 point)

Dolphins are one of the most intelligent species on the planet, which makes them a very interesting animal to scientists. In their natural habitats, dolphins use various vocalisation techniques. They whistle and squeak to recognize members of their pod, identify and protect their young, and call out warnings of danger. They also make clicking sounds used for echolocation to find food and obstacles in dark and murky waters.

Amazingly, the whistling sound that the bottlenose dolphin makes has been found to have a similar pattern to human language. They always make conversational sounds when they greet each other. If you listen to dolphins' squeaks and squeals, it will sound like they are having a conversation.

Dolphins usually use both sound and body language to communicate with each other. It is through gesture and body language, however, that most of their communication with humans comes. Dolphins can be trained to perform complicated tricks. This suggests they have a high level of intelligence and communication capacity. If they work for a long time with a trainer, they are able to recognize and understand human commands.

A lot of dolphin communication has been studied using dolphins in captive environments. These studies have been criticized because some marine biologists believe that dolphins living in aquariums or research centres cannot be considered "normal". Even so, most believe that studying dolphin communication in captivity is useful for beginning to understand the complexity of dolphin communication. After all, dolphins are one of the most intelligent animals. Their ability to communicate is impressive and worthy of study.

D.    body language and gestures are used for communication with humans.

4.    The word capacity in paragraph 3 is closest in meaning to   .

A. simplicity     B. ability  C. probability    D. productivity

5.    Why do dolphins use their communication skills with each other?

A.    To prove that they are happy and useful in captivity

B.    To make beautiful music and to find food
