Section 4
A) Read the following passage, then choose the most suitable
answer for each of the questions
below .
Very few people in the modern world obtain
their food supply by hunting and gathering
in the natural environment surrounding their homes.
This method of harvesting from natures provision is
oldest known subsistence strategy , and has been
practiced for at least the last 2 million years. It
was, indeed , the only way to obtain food until
rudimentary farming and the domestication of animals
was introduced about 10,000 years ago. Because hunter-gatherers
have fared poorly in comparison
with their agricultural cousins , their numbers have
decreased , and they have been forced to live in marginal
environments such as deserts , forests , or arctic
wastelands . In higher latitudes
, the shorter growing season has restricted the
availability of plant life . Such conditions have
caused a greater dependence on hunting and, along the
coasts waterways , on fishing . The abundance of
vegetation in the lower latitudes of the tropics
, on the other hand , has provided a
greater opportunity for gathering a variety of plants . In
short , the environmental differences have restricted
the diet and have limited possibilities for the
development of subsistence societies .Contemporary
hunter-gatherers may help us understand our

prehistoric ancestors . We know from observation


of modern hunter-gatherers in both Africa
and Alaska that a society based on hunting and gathering must
be very mobile . While the entire community
camps in a central location , a smaller party
harvests the food within a reasonable distance from the
camp . When the food in the area is exhausted , the community moves
on to exploit another site . We also notice a
seasonal migration pattern involving for most
hunter-gatherers, along with a strict division of labor
between the sexes . These patterns of behavior may be
similar to those practiced by mankind during the
Paleolithic period .

First of all, people over the age of sixty can make a lot of things to
society . As for their experience, it is not only very useful but also
everlasting. In other words, we do not have to re-experience things which
were previously proven to be successful .
Besides, they can guide young people and instruct them how to make
use of time . The society itself can raise such a question and address them
: what would you do if you were born now ? Actually their reply can
pave the way for a better future .In this way we make sure that the new
generation is in honest hands.

The importance of sports in the present-day world is the same as food
for the body or power as to machinery . They are significant regardless of
their types . Moreover it is obligatory for the human beings every where .

3- The qualities of a good driver .


First of all a good driver is someone who can lead everything very
well, otherwise casualties can not be avoided . Besides, he should enjoy
good health , good sight as well as good and stable behavior .
On the other hand he should not drink alcohol at all , nor should he
talk with any passenger while he is driving . He has to concentrate and
never to busy himself with the people's conversations inside his vehicle
Moreover, he does not have to focus on the radio .
Briefly speaking the qualities of a good driver are countless,
nevertheless we can outline them in one sentence :
The more careful the driver is, the fewer risks he will confront .
