Although seismologists know that certain regions are more earthquake-prone than others, they do not know for certain just when an earthquake will occur. Today much of the effort of earthquake prediction goes into studying the geology of the Earth and examining historical records of particular regions to determine exactly where and how often earthquakes occurred in the past. This information can then be used to make rough estimates of what to expect in the future in that same region. Such studies lead seismologists to think that there is between a 10 and 50 per cent probability that a major earthquake will strike California within a person’s lifetime. Most earthquakes do little harm, but a few can cause great destruction and loss of life. Engineers study each major earthquake to learn how to build safer buildings, dams, and bridges so that destruction and loss of life can be reduced. Seismologists and other scientists continue their studies to learn more about what happens at the earthquake source and to discover more about the interior of the Earth.

41- It is understood from the passage that _____ .
A) there is not much effort in the study of earthquakes
B) engineers only study dams and bridgesto learn about earthquakes
C) historical records give few clues in theprevious earthquakes
D) most earthquakes occur where less research is done

In order to process black-and-white negative film, three solutions are required. The first and most important, the developer, converts the exposed portion of the silver halides in the film emulsion into black metallic silver, which is what actually forms the image. The amount of time the film is immersed in the developer solution is critical and must be accurately measured. The second step is the stop bath, or rinse. Its function is to stop the action of the developer remaining in the film. This helps to control the exact period of time the developer is allowed to work. The stop bath also helps to prevent the formation of bubbles of carbon black spots in the final print. The film is next placed into a fixing bath. This solution removes the unused silver halides in the film by forming a soluble solution of a silver salt, rendering the image permanent and insensitive to light. The fixer must then be removed either by washing the film in running water or by using some form of chemical neutralization. If this is not done, the constituents in the fixer will, in time, cause the image to fade. After washing, the film is immersed in a wetting agent, usually ethylene glycol, which reduces the surface tension of the water remaining on the film and helps it to dry without leaving any spots or marks. Finally, the film is placed in a dust-free enclosure to dry; forced air or heat may be used to accelerate the drying step.

45- According to the passage, the developer _____ .
A) can be bought cheaply from
B) shouldn’t be exposed to sunlight
C) is the most important solution in developing a film
D) may be used more than once
E) may come in various colours

46- The author points out that _____ .
A) developer is only used in black-and- white negative films
B) a film must be immersed in thedeveloper for a long time
C) chemical neutralization is the best method to remove the fixer
D) the image is formed after the first step
E) there are two ways of removing the fixer

47- We learn from the passage that ethylene glycol _____ .
A) prevents the formation of bubbles of carbon black spots
B) is a liquid which is hard to find elsewhere
C) is not a solution but a mixture of various chemical
D) helps the film to dry with no spots or marks on it
E) is what is required most in developing process

48- It is clear from the passage that in order to quicken the drying, _____ .
A) two solutions can be used together
B) forced air or heat may be used
C) the film should be put in wetting agent
D) the room must be free from dust

The Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbour, on Oahu island, Hawaii, the operating base of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, in 1941 resulted in the immediate entry of the United States into World War II and opened the Pacific phase of the war. In late 1941 more than 75 U.S. warships were based at Pearl Harbour. All U.S. aircraft carriers were elsewhere. On November 26, a Japanese task force under the command of Vice Adm. Chuichi Nagumo, departed in secret from the Kuril Islands, off Japan. Observing radio silence, it reached a launching point at 6 , December 7. At 7:50 , the first wave of Japanese planes struck Pearl Harbour, bombarding airfields and battleships moored at the concrete quays. A second wave followed. The surprise attack wasover before 10 . The results were devastating; 18 U.S. ships were struck, and more than 200 aircraft were destroyed or damaged.

Leaves are the “food factories” of plants, the sites where most of a plant’s energy is produced. Photosynthesis is the process by which plants use light energy from the sun to produce food. Although photosynthesis may take place in any green part of a plant, it mainly occurs in the leaves. Earth’s first land plants, which appeared more than 400 million years ago, had no leaves and carried out photosynthesis through their stems. The flowering plants that are familiar to us today first appeared on Earth more than 200 million years ago. Because these advanced plants have more numerous and larger leaves than did their primitive ancestors, they are more efficient at making their own food. Leaves vary greatly in size, from a water plant leaf as small as the head of a pin to a tropical palm leaf that cangrow more than 20 meters long. Along with size, there are also variations in how many leaves a specific species, or kind, of plant supports. For instance, a mature hardwood tree may produce several million leaves during its life span, while one plant specialized for life in the desert grows only two leaves throughout its entire life.

53- According to the passage photosynthesis _____ .

In Egypt, the people who had farms along the banks of the Nile River were taxed according to their holdings. In the rainy season, the river would overflow its banks and spread over the land, washing away all landmarks. It became necessary, therefore, to re-measure the land so that each owner would have his rightful share. After the floods had subsided, specially trained men, called “rope-stretchers,” would establishnew landmarks. They would use ropes knotted at equal intervals so that they could measure out desired lengths and divide the land into triangles, rectangles, and trapezoids. They devised practical rules for the areas of these figures. The rules were of the rough-and-ready variety and were often inexact. We know today, for example, that the area of any triangle is one-half the product of its altitude and its base. The Egyptians erroneously gave this area as one-half the product of the base and a side. However, most of the triangles used in their surveying work were long and narrow, and in such triangles there is not too much difference in length between the long side and the altitude. Hence the results of the Egyptians’ calculations served as a pretty fair basis for the allotting of land and the taxation of landowners.

57- It is stated in the passage that in the past Egyptians _____ .
A) did not practice suitable farming methods
B) trained villages for better farming techniques
C) would pay their taxes in accordance with what they had
D) made use of seasonal conditions for good farming

A) were sort of officials who marked the margins of the fields along the Nile
B) were trained experts on farming methods
C) knew how to get maximum yield from a piece of land
D) were chosen among the villagers
E) were appointed by the king

59- It can be determined from the passage that the results of the Egyptians’ calculations _____ .
A) determined how much water a villager would get
B) were stored in local databases
C) were generally correct, though therewere a few mistakes
D) indicated the extent of the yield obtained
E) were used to allot land and determine tax payments of landowners

60- It is understood from the passage that in order to divide the land along the banks of the Nile, _____ .
A) the officials got assistance from villagers
B) ropes knotted at equal intervals wereused
C) villagers were provided certain geometric objects
D) villagers had to wait for a long time
E) trained experts were appointed by the central government
