Directions: Q. 3-6:
Study the passage to answer these questions.Nothing is sure but death and taxes, and of course that north is north and south is south, and thus it hasalways been, so they say. But they’d be wrong. You can perhaps be sure about death and taxes, but youmight want to reconsider the rest of it. In fact, at many times in our planet’s history, north has becomesouth and south has become north, in a process called magnetic reversal.Paleogeologists have discovered the existence of these mysterious phenomena (in a field study known aspaleomagnetism) by investigating rocks. When rocks are being formed from magmas, atoms within their crystals respond to the earth’s magnetic field by “pointing” towards the magnetic north pole. By age-datingthe rocks and noting their magnetic alignment, scientists can determine where on earth the north polewas located at that time because as the rocks solidified, they trapped that information within them. Thestudy of ancient lava flows has revealed that at certain periods in the earth’s history magnetic north wasdirectly opposite its present location. In fact, it has been determined that the north/south reversal hasoccurred on average every 500,000 years and that the last reversal took place about 700,000 years ago.Scientists call those periods of “normal” polarity (the magnetic orientation of our modern era) and“reversed” polarity (the magnetic orientation of reverse situation) by the name “Magnetic chrons”.Although the fact of such reversal is clear, why and how they happen and their effects on the planet aresubjects of considerable debate. Since no one knows precisely how the earth’s magnetic field isproduced, it becomes difficult to say how it might be reversed. Among explanations proposed are areversal of the direction of convention currents in the liquid outer core of the earth and a collision betweenearth and a meteorite or comet. While the precise effects of a reversal are not known, there can be littledoubt that the earth would receive during the process a great deal more damaging ultraviolet radiationthan it now does and that such occurrences have been correlated with the extinction of certain species inthe geologic past.3.The main purpose of the passage is toA. Present opposing hypotheses concerning the earth’s magnetic field and argue that one of them is adequate.B. Explain what is meant by ‘normal’ polarityC. Set forth a time table for magnetic reversalD. Explain the process of magnetic reversal and how it was discovered4.Magnetic reversalrefers toA. The reversal of direction in ancient lava flowsB. A reversal of the direction of convection currents in the outer core of the earth.C. North becoming south and south becoming northD. The atoms in rock crystal pointing towards the magnetic north pole5.According to the passage which of the following was crucial to the discovery of magneticreversal?A. The rapid change from ‘normal’ to ‘reversal’ polarityB. Lava flows ‘pointing’ to magnetic northC. Solidification of rocks formed from magmasD. The extinction of certain species 700,000 years ago6.One can infer from the passage thatA. If the earth collides with a meteorite, the magnetic field will be reversalB. A magnetic reversal could present a damage to humansC. The earth’s magnetic field was produced about 700,000 years agoD. In spite of past reversals normal polarity is now firmly established7.In how many ways can the letters of the word PATNA be rearranged?(A) 60(B) 120(C) 119(D) 59
