Science, ever since the time of the Arabs, has had two functions: to enable us to know things, and to enable us to do things. The Greeks, with the exception of Archimedes, were only interested in the first of these. They had much curiosity about the world, however, since civilized people lived comfortably on slave labour, they had no interest in the “application” of such knowledge to improve lives. The Arabs, on the other hand, wished to discover the philosopher’s stone, the elixir of life, and how to turn base metals into gold. In the pursuit of these things, they discovered many facts about chemistry, but they did not arrive at any valid and important general laws, and “application” remained elementary. However, in the late Middle Ages, two discoveries were made which had profound importance. These were gunpowder and the mariner’s compass. It is not known who made these discoveries – the only thing certain is that it was not Roger Bacon, who was an English philosopher of the time.

43. It can be inferred from the passage that _____
A) the “applications” developed by the Greeks and Arabs helped establish today’s paradigms of knowledge
B) the Arabs’ research into chemistry included some unrealistic goals
C) the Arabians’ and Greeks’ contribution to science was almost equal to modern efforts
D) the Greeks’ involvement in science included finding the elixir of life and the philosopher’s stone
E) what the Arabs did in the name of science determined the parameters for the Greeks to follow

44. The reason why the Greeks were not concerned with the “application” of knowledge _____
A) is that they preferred to use slave labour so that they did not have to face the hardships of life
B) can be explained by the fact that they were the first to attempt to understand the nature of the world
C) is that the notion of developing “applications” did not occur to them at all
D) is that the areas they studied did not yield any “applications”
E) lies in the fact that they had no interest in making any new discoveries

45. According to the passage, Archimedes _____
A) was a follower of the scientific tradition developed by Arabs
B) is a rather insignificant figure in the world of Greeks
C) did as much as the rest of the Greek scientists to advance science
D) was not only interested in knowing things but also doing things
E) studied the world as he was curious as regards how it was formed

46. The discovery of gunpowder and the mariner’s compass in the Middle Ages _____
A) was immediately put to use by the Greeks
B) was made by a group of scientists headed by Roger Bacon
C) shows that the Arabs were primitive in their knowledge of chemistry
D) was made possible by the joint scientific efforts of the Arabs and Greeks
E) had a great influence on people’s lives

A study by a group of scientists has resulted in a major step forward in overcoming drug addiction. As addiction was known to cause molecular changes in the brains of addicts, causing their neurons to transmit much stronger signals of dopamine, a messenger molecule involved in reward-seeking behaviours, the scientists were hoping to prove experimentally that certain key proteins in the dopamine-producing neurons influence drug addiction. It was an inspired guess, as the study found that mice in which these key proteins had been selectively switched off displayed clear addictive behaviour. For instance, mice in which the CluR1 protein was switched off showed a much longer period of dependence. Conversely, re- administration of cocaine after a long break immediately re-ignited the addiction, but mice whose NR1 protein had been deactivated resisted relapsing into addictive behaviours. The ability of these proteins to determine addictive behavioural patterns makes them fascinating.

47. According to the passage, the NR1 protein in the mice involved in the experiment _____
A) helps to determine CluR1 protein levels
B) could not be deactivated completely
C) is found to have no relevance to addictive behaviours
D) causes a relapse into addiction when active
E) is currently the only substance used in the treatment of addiction

48. One can understand from the passage that drug addiction _____
A) diminishes the strength of neural signals of dopamine
B) switches off reward-seeking behaviours
C) affects the molecular structure of the brain
D) exterminates dopamine-producing neurons
E) causes a selective deactivation of proteins

49. As can be understood from the passage, the discovery _____
A) could offer new ways of treating addictive behaviours in humans
B) showed that addictive behavioural patterns are too complex to be classified
C) proved the importance of refraining from long breaks between cocaine doses
D) revealed that mice and human addictive behavioural patterns were completely different
E) may, in the future, be used to re-ignite substance addiction

50. It is clear from the passage that the CluR1 protein _____
A) excites new addictive behavioural patterns that previously did not exist
B) is the by-product of molecular changes in the brain
C) requires the re-administration of cocaine
D) immediately re-ignites the addiction when switched on
E) can increase resistance to addiction when active

Satellite images of the upper Amazon Basin in Brazil taken since 1999 have revealed hundreds of circles, squares, and other geometric shapes once hidden by the Amazon rain forests. They hint at a previously unknown ancient society that flourished in the Amazon. Now researchers estimate that nearly ten times as many such structures, of unknown purpose, may exist undetected under the Amazon forest cover. The discovery adds to evidence that the hinterlands of the Amazon once teemed with complex societies, which were largely wiped out by diseases brought to South America by European colonists in the 15 and 16th centuries.
Since these vanished societies had gone unrecorded, earlier research had suggested that soils in the upper Amazon were too poor to support the extensive agriculture needed for such large, permanent settlements. The researchers say “We found that this view is wrong, and there is a lot more to discover in these places”.

51. According to the passage, the new discovery _____
A) has strengthened the already known facts about the upper Amazon Basin
B) is too poor to become an evidence for the ancient Amazon society
C) has proved that the satellite pictures were misleading
D) has falsified the previous assumptions about the land
E) indicates the fact that the upper Amazon Basin was made of geometric shapes

52. From the passage, we can infer that _____
A) pictures taken by satellites can provide scientists with valuable new data
B) there is no longer any reason to further investigate the upper Amazon Basin
C) the ancient Amazon people lived in extreme isolation from the outer world
D) researchers can learn a lot from the written historical data relating to the region
E) the geometric shapes should not be taken too seriously

53. It is clearly understood from the passage that the ancient Amazon people _____
A) killed large numbers of would-be colonists
B) had no resistance to new diseases
C) hid themselves in the Amazon rain forest
D) led a very simple life and lived as separate tribes
E) are the ancestors of the present-day inhabitants of the region

54. As can be understood from the passage, the researchers now tend to think that _____
A) they have revealed almost everything about the region
B) the natives had no idea about agriculture
C) the colonists helped the natives become civilized
D) the geometric shapes reveal something about the new industrial areas
E) the land might have once been inhabited densely

When air pollution, including acid rain, is combined with other environmental stresses, such as low winter temperatures, prolonged droughts, insects, and bacterial, fungal, and viral diseases, it can cause plants to decline and die. More than half of the red spruce trees in the mountains of the northern United States have died since the mid- 1970s. Other tree species, such as sugar maples, for example, are also dying. Many still-living trees are exhibiting symptoms of forest decline, characterized by a gradual deterioration and often eventual death. The general symptoms of forest decline are reduced vigour and growth, but some plants exhibit specific symptoms, such as yellowing of needles in conifers. Air pollutants may or may not be the primary stress that results in forest decline, but the presence of air pollution lowers plant resistance to other stress factors. When one or more stresses weaken a tree, then an additional stress may be enough to cause death.

55. It is suggested in the passage that air pollutants _____
A) become very destructive for all kinds of trees when they turn into acid rain
B) have been the primary cause of the deterioration of various tree species
C) can cause forest decline when they act together with other environmental stresses
D) show their adverse effect on trees most clearly when there are prolonged droughts
E) are particularly effective on sugar maples and conifers but not other species

56. According to the passage, when the trees in a forest fail to grow properly, _____
A) this is directly related to low winter temperatures
B) this is mostly the result of a fungal disease
C) its immediate effect can be detected right away
D) this can be a symptom of forest decline
E) it is inevitable that bacterial diseases will emerge soon

57. It is implied in the passage that the death of the red spruce in the northeastern United States _____
A) is a clear indication of how forest decline can turn into a major disaster
B) has been caused primarily by bacterial and viral diseases in the region
C) was also noticed in the mid-1970s when the trees showed a great deal of reduced vigour
D) was preceded first by reduced growth and then a long period of deterioration
E) has resulted from the joint effects of air pollution and environmental factors

58. It is emphasized in the passage that air pollution _____
A) weakens the resistance of plants against environmental stresses
B) in the northeastern United States has declined substantially over the years
C) causes the spread of bacterial, fungal and viral diseases in the world
D) plays a major role in the fall of winter temperatures
E) prevents the detection of symptoms related to forest decline.

A 37,000-year-old baby mammoth could help to explain why the ancient species became extinct as well as giving an insight into climate change. Researchers at a Japanese medical school carried out a computed tomography (CT) scan of the mammoth, which was found frozen in Northern Siberia. They produced some high- resolution 3D pictures which are being analyzed to find out about the animal’s internal organs and diet, and to work out how she died. The mammoth’s tissues and skeleton have been studied at a zoological museum in Russia. Air samples from her lungs will also be analyzed for clues to the Earth’s atmosphere at the time of her death. The mammoth, named Lyuba, was found by a reindeer herder buried in permafrost. She is unusual because of the proportion of her body that is preserved. According to one expert working on Lyuba, with fossils, scientists generally get only bones and teeth, but this specimen is special in that there are also the organs and muscles. The same expert notes that it will be interesting to see how this animal managed to adapt to life high in the Arctic and was able to survive, especially in the Ice Age.

59. It is clear from the passage that the mammoth Lyuba is considered extraordinary because _____
A) it had remained buried in permafrost
B) a great part of its body was conserved
C) it was found by a reindeer herder
D) its body was unusually disproportionate
E) it was a rather muscular animal

60. It can be inferred from the text that _____
A) Lyuba was a special animal with unusual features
B) there were many animals left in the high Arctic by the Ice Age
C) reindeer were the dominant species in Siberia some 37,000 years ago
D) scientists have adequate information as to why mammoths disappeared
E) most fossils do not provide pre-historic air samples

61. According to the passage, the organs and muscles of the baby mammoth _____
A) make the animal inapt for a CT scan
B) will give scientists an insight into the survival and adaptation skills of the mammoths
C) were found to be different from those of the other members of the same species
D) did not provide any new insight about the species
E) were found to be similar to those of the reindeer that lived in the same area

62. It is clear from the passage that the CT scan of the mammoth _____
A) did not yield the expected result, as the animal had remained in permafrost for too long
B) was carried out in northern Siberia
C) provided extensive information on the Earth’s atmosphere at the time of her death
D) is sure to offer scientists insight into climate change
E) is expected to give scientists an idea about the eating habits of the animal
