E. Reading Comprehension
Passage 1
Much of what goes by the name of pleasure is simply an effort to destroy
consciousness. If one started by asking, what is man? What are his needs? How can he best
express himself? One would discover that merely having the power to avoid work and live ones
life from birth to death in electric light and to the tune of tinned music is not a reason for doing
so. Man needs warmth, society, leisure, comfort and security: he also needs solitude, creative
work and the sense of wonder. If he recognized this he could use the products of science and
industrialism eclectically, applying always the same test: does this make me more human or
less human? He would then learn that the highest happiness does not lie in relaxing, resting,
playing poker, drinking and making love simultaneously.


Adapted from an essay by George Orwell

_____31. The author implies that the answers to the questions in sentence two would reveal
that human beings _____________________.
a. are less human when they seek pleasure*

_____32. The author would apparently agree that playing poker is _____.
a. often an effort to avoid thinking
b. something that gives true pleasure
c. an example of mans need for society *
d. something that man must learn to avoid
Passage 2
Examine the recently laid egg of some common animal, such as a salamander or newt.
It is a minute spheroid an apparently structure less sac, enclosing a fluid, holding granules
in suspension. But let a moderate supply of warmth reach its watery cradle, and the plastic
matter undergoes changes so rapid, yet so steady and purposeful in their succession, that one
can only compare them to those operated by a skilled modeler upon a formless lump of clay. As
with an invisible trowel, the mass is divided and subdivided into smaller and smaller portions.
And, then, it is as if a delicate finger traced out the line to be occupied by the spinal column,
and molded the contour of the body; pinching up the head at one end, the tail at the other, and
fashioning flank and limb into due proportions, in so artistic a way, that, after watching the
process hour by hour, one is almost involuntarily possessed by the notion, that some more
subtle aid to vision than a microscope, would show the hidden artist, with his plan before him,
striving with skillful manipulation to perfect his work.
Adapted from an essay by T H Huxley
_____33. The author makes his main point with the aid of _______.
a. logical paradox

b. indirect
d. surreptitious *

Passage 3


There are not many places that I find it more agreeable to revisit when in an idle mood,
than some places to which I have never been. For, my acquaintance with those spots is of such
long standing, and has ripened into an intimacy of so affectionate a nature, that I take a
particular interesting assuring myself that they are unchanged. I never was in Robinson
Crusoes Island, yet I frequently return there. I was never in the robbers cave, where Gil Blas
lived, but I often go back there and find the trap-door just as heaven to raise as it used to be. I
was never in Don Quixotes study, where he read his books of chivalry until he rose and hacked
at imaginary giants, yet you couldnt move a book in it without my knowledge. So with
Damascus, and Lilliput, and the Nile, and Abyssinia, and the North Pole and many hundreds
of places I was never at them, yet it is an affair of my life to keep them intact, and I am
always going back to them.
Passage 4
The books one reads in childhood create in ones mind a sort of false map of the world,
a series of fabulous countries into which one can retreat at odd moments throughout the rest
of life, and which in some cases can even survive a visit to the real countries which they are
supposed to represent. The pampas, the Amazon, the coral islands of the Pacific, Russia, land
of birch-tree and samovar, Transylvania with its boyars and vampires, the China of Guy
Boothby, the Paris of du Maurierone could continue the list for a long time. But one other
imaginary country that I acquired early in life was called America. If I pause on the word
America, and deliberately put aside the existing reality, I can call up my childhood vision of
