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.

Accustomed though we are to speaking of the films made before 1927 as “silent”, the film has never been, in  the  full  sense  of  the  word,  silent.  From  the  very  beginning,  music  was  regarded  as  an  indispensable accompaniment;  when  the  Lumiere  films  were  shown  at  the  first  public  film  exhibition  in  the  United  States  in February 1896, they were accompanied by piano improvisations on popular tunes. At first, the music played bore no  special  relationship  to  the  films;  an  accompaniment  of  any  kind  was sufficient.  Within  a  very  short  time, however, the incongruity of playing lively music to a solemn film became apparent, and film pianists began to take some care in matching their pieces to the mood of the film.

As movie theaters grew in number and importance, a violinist, and perhaps a cellist, would be added to the pianist in certain cases, and in the larger movie theaters small orchestras were formed. For a number of years the selection of music for each film program rested entirely in the hands of the conductor or leader of the orchestra, and very often the principal qualification for holding such a position was not skill or taste so much as the ownership of a large personal library of musical pieces. Since the conductor  seldom saw the films until the night before they were to be shown (if, indeed, the conductor was lucky enough to see  them  then), the musical arrangement was normally improvised in the greatest hurry.

To help meet this difficulty, film distributing companies started the practice of publishing suggestions for musical  accompaniments.  In  1909,  for  example,  the  Edison  Company  began  issuing  with  their  films  such indications  of  mood  as  “pleasant’,  “sad”,  “lively”.  The  suggestions  became  more  explicit,  and  so  em erged  the musical cue sheet containing indications of mood, the titles of suitable pieces of music, and precise directions to show where one piece led into the next.

Certain films had music especially composed  for them. The most famous of these early special scores was that composed and arranged for D. W. Griffith’s film Birth of a Nation, which was released in 1915.

Question 26: The passage mainly discusses music that was ____________.

  1. performed before the showing of a film          B. played during silent films
  2. recorded during film exhibitions                     D.specifically composed for certain movie theaters

Question 27: What can be inferred that the passage about the majority of films made after 1927?

  1. They were truly “silent”
  2. They were accompanied by symphonic orchestras
  3. They incorporated the sound of the actors’ voices
  4. They corresponded to specific musical compositions

Question 28: It can be inferred that orchestra conductors who worked in movie theaters needed to ________.

  1. be able to play many instruments                     B. have pleasant voices
  2. be familiar with a wide variety of music         D. be able to compose original music

Question 29: The word “them” in paragraph 2 refers to _________.

  1. years                             B. hands                      C. pieces                     D. films

Question 30: According to the passage, what kind of business was the Edison Company?

  1. It produced electricity                                  B. It distributed films
  2. It published musical arrangements                  D. It made musical instruments

Question 31: It may be inferred from the passage that the first musical cue sheets appeared around _________.

  1. 1896                             B. 1909                       C. 1915                       D. 1927

Question 32:  Which of the following notations is most likely to have been included on a musical cue sheet of the early 1900’s?

  1. “Calm, peaceful”                                            B. “Piano, violin”
  2. “Key of C major”                                           D. “Directed by D. W. Griffith’s

Question 33: The word “scores” in paragraph 4 most likely mean ____________.

  1. totals                                                                 B. successes
  2. groups of musicians                                       D. musical compositions


Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct word for each of the blanks.


However  objective  we  believe  ourselves  to  be,  most  of  us  do  not  judge  a  product  solely  on  its  merits, considering  quality,  value  and  style  before  making  a  decision.  (34)________,  we  are  easily  influenced  by  the people around us.

There is nothing  wrong  with this.  It is probably a smarter way to make decisions than (35)  ________ on only our own opinions. But it does make life hard for companies. They have long understood that groups of friends and relatives tend to buy the same products, but understanding the reasons has been tricky.  It is because they are so similar with (36)  _______ to how much money they make and what television ads they  watch that  they independently arrive  at the same decision? Or do they copy one another, perhaps (37)  ______ envy or perhaps because they have shared information about the products?

Research in Finland recently found overwhelming evidence that neighbours have a big influence on buying decisions. When one of a person’s ten nearest neighbours bought a car, the chances that that person would buy a car of the same brand during the next week and a half (38)  __________ by 86 per cent.  The researchers argued that  it was not just a matter of envy. Used cars seemed to attract neighbours even more than new cars. This suggested that people were not trying to keep  up with their neighbours, they were keen to learn from them.  Since used cars are less reliable, a recommendation of one can strongly influence a buying decision.

Question 34:A. What’s more         B. Instead                   C. Unlike                    D. In place

Question 35:A. basing                    B. trusting                   C. supposing               D. relying

Question 36:    A. connection            B. regard                     C. relation                   D. concern

Question 37:    A. for                         B. as to                        C. out of                     D. about

Question 38:A. boosted                 B. rose                         C. enlarged                 D. lifted


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.

Glass  is  a  remarkable  substance  made  from  the  simplest  raw  materials.  It  can  be  colored  or  colorless, monochrome or polychrome, transparent, translucent, or opaque. It is lightweight impermeable to liquids, readily cleaned and reused,  durable  yet fragile, and often very beautiful.  Glass can be decorated in multiple ways and its optical properties are exceptional. In all its myriad forms  –  as table ware, containers, in architecture and design  -glass represents a major achievement in the history of technological developments.

Since the  Bronze Age about 3, 000 B. C.    glass has been used for making various kinds of objects. It was first  made  from  a  mixture  of  silica,  line  and  an  alkali  such  as  soda  or  potash,  and  these  remained  the  basic ingredients  of  glass  until  the  development  of  lead  glass  in  the  seventeenth  century.  When  heated,  the  mixture becomes soft and malleable and can be formed by various techniques into a vast array of shapes and sizes. The homogeneous mass thus formed by melting then cools to create glass, but in contrast to most materials formed in this  way  (metals,  for  instance),  glass  lacks  the  crystalline  structure  normally  associated  with  solids,  and  instead retains the random molecular structure of a liquid. In effect, as molten glass cools, it progressively stiffen s until rigid, but does so without setting up a network of interlocking crystals  customarily  associated with that process. This is why glass shatters so easily when dealt a blow. Why glass deteriorates over time, especially when  exposed to moisture, and why glassware must be slowly reheated and uniformly cooled after manufacture to release internal stresses induced by uneven cooling.

Another  unusual  feature  of  glass  is  the  manner  in  which  its  viscosity  changes  as  it  turns  from  a  cold substance into a hot,  ductile liquid. Unlike metals that flow or freeze  at specific temperatures glass progressively softens as the temperature rises, going through varying stages of malleability until it flows like a thick syrup. Each stage of malleability allows the glass to be manipulated into various forms, by different techniques, and if suddenly cooled  the  object  retains  the  shape  achieved  at  that  point.  Glass  is  thus  amenable  to  a  greater  number  of  heatforming techniques than most other materials.
