Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct

answer to each of the questions.

In the history of technology, computers and calculators were innovative developments. They are essentially

different from all other machines because they have a memory. This memory stores instructions and information. In

a calculator, the instructions are the various functions of arithmetic, which are permanently remembered by the

machine and cannot be altered or added to. The information consists of the numbers keyed in.

An electronic pocket calculator can perform almost instant arithmetic. A calculator requires an input unit to feed

in numbers, a processing unit to make the calculation, a memory unit, and an output unit to display the result. The

calculator is powered by a small battery or by a panel of solar cells. Inside is a microchip that contains the memory

and processing units and also controls the input unit, which is the keyboard, and the output unit, which is the

display.

The input unit has keys for numbers and operations. Beneath the keys is a printed circuit board containing a set

of contacts for each key. Pressing a key closes the contacts and sends a signal along a pair of lines in the circuit

board to the processing unit, in which the binary code for that key is stored in the memory. The processing unit also

sends the code to the display. Each key is connected by a different pair of lines to the processing unit, which

repeatedly checks the lines to find out when a pair is linked by a key.

The memory unit stores the arithmetic instructions for the processing unit and holds the temporary results that

occur during calculation. Storage cells in the memory unit hold the binary codes for the keys that have been

pressed. The number codes, together with the operation code for the plus key, are held in temporary cells until the

processing unit requires them.

When the equals key is pressed, it sends a signal to the processing unit. This takes the operation code – for

example, addition – and the two numbers being held in the memory unit and performs the operation on the two

numbers. A full adder does the addition, and the result goes to the decoder in the calculator’s microchip. This code

is then sent to the liquid crystal display unit, which shows the result, or output, of the calculation.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct

answer to each of the questions.

People who suffer from excessive drowsiness during the daytime may be victims of a condition known as

“narcolepsy.” While most people may feel sleepy while watching TV or after eating a meal, narcoleptics may fall

asleep at unusual or embarrassing times. They may doze while eating, talking, taking a shower, or even driving a

car. Victims can be affected in one of two ways. Most narcoleptics have several sleeping spells during each day

with alert periods in between. A minority of others feel drowsy almost all the time and are alert for only brief

intervals.

There are no reliable data showing how many people have narcolepsy. Some estimates put the number as

high as 300,000 in the United States alone. The cause of this illness has not been identified, although recent

research suggests that the problem may stem from an immune system reacting abnormally to the brain’s chemical

processes. There is currently no cure for narcolepsy, so sufferers of this condition can only have their symptoms

treated through a combination of counseling and drugs.
