The following text is for questions 32 to 34
Cigarette smokers are said to have chance of getting various fatal diseases. But I think
that other peoples tobacco smoke seems to increase the chances of non-smokers
getting a wide range of cancers. First , although passive smokers inhale less tobacco
smoke, the researchers point out that the smoke they breathe in is richer in many
toxic chemicals. There is an example, three times as much as benzo-apyrene, six
times as much loluene and more than 50 times as much dimenthyl nitrosamine. Of
course these substances will harm our body in the long run. Second , the recent
research reported that the risk of getting cancers not normally associated with
smoking also rose among passive smokers. The risk of leukaemia rose 6 8 times and
the risk of cervical cancer increased 3 4 times. Third , past studies have found that
by product of cigarette smoke such as coinine and thiocynate, turn up in the blood,
urine and saliva of non smoking adults, children and fetuses that have been exposed
to smokers. These substances are the main causes of various cancers. In short , the
effects of exposure to the cigarette smoking of others are greater than has been
previously suspected. That is why passive smokers have more chances of contracting
cancer than people with no such expose.

The text is about ....

The danger of becoming passive smokers.
The danger of becoming active smokers.
Various types of diseases caused by cigarette smoke.

Multiculturalism has had a major effect on Australian society. Since Australian
opened her doors to other nationalities apart from the British, she has matured and
grown in many different areas. These areas include dress, languages, religions,
festivals, cuisine, architecture, sports and recreation.
Australia has adopted many ideas from immigrants, the lifestyle is more relaxed
and the way Australian people dress is more comfortable in the way they can choose
to wear.

The traditional English originally, spoken has broadened to include words from
others countries. Australian people now have terms in their language such as
cappuccino, boulevard, cal de sac and cuisine.
Australian now has representatives off all major religions and can proudly say
that each person is free to follow their chosen religion whit out persecution.
The immigrants brought with them festivals and celebrations and are happy to
share them with all Australians. These include Chinese New Year, Oktoberfest and
some other festivals.
The biggest part of traditional Australian life to be changed has been the
introduction of a varied style and foods. Australians enjoy eating and cooking the
foods of the French, Chinese, Italian, Viennese, Japanese, creation and Greek to name
a few.
Architecture in Australia has changed to a more open, relaxed continental way
of thinking. This is seen in the shopping malls and the adaptation of styles in housing,
for example, the Spanish style house and the open pians used today.
New sport, such as soccer and baseball, are challenging the interest in the more
traditional sports codes of league and cricket.

successfully and as peacefully as it at present, Australia will continue to grow and

The following text is for questions 38 to 40.
Every day we experience traffic congestion, especially in big cities. The streets are filled with old
and new vehicles. Many of the new-cars owners use subsidized fuel. Do you agree with this stance?
Some people who agree with the attitude say that the fuel is subsidized by the government for all the
Indonesian people. So, everyone is entitled to use it. They also argue that new vehicles taxes are very high.
These vehicles taxes can be uses to reduce the burden of the government in providing fuel subsidies. That
means balanced, the government subsidizes fuel and new car owners pay high taxes.
On the other hand, there are many people who disagree with that attitude. They argue that the percentage of
new-vehicles owners are much higher than that of the old cars. The new-vehicles owners are also considered
better off financially compared to that of the old car owners. That means subsidized fuel is more widely used

by new cars though the new cars owners are wealthy enough to buy not-subsidized fuel. Thus, the
government fuel subsidies are misplaced. Subsidized fuel should only be for old cars owners who are less
well off financially.
In conclusion, lets see what the government will do in addressing this condition. Will the ban on the use of
subsidized fuel for cars really be implemented next year?
37.Which of the following statement is NOT TRUE according to the text ?
a. New cars still use subsidized fuel.
b. The government will never provide new cars with subsidized fuel next

b. They pay high taxes for their cars
c. Old car owners pay lower taxes for their cars than they do
d. Subsidized fuel has no relation to the governments financial burden
e. Using high-octane fuel for new cars may disturb the driving
39. so, everyone is entitled to use it. ( paragraph 2 ) The word it refers to ....
a. A high tax

Karl Landsteiner was born in Vienna on 14th June 1868.His father, Leopold Landsteiner, a doctor of law,
was a well-known journalist and newspaper publisher. He died when Karl was six years old. Karl was
brought up by his mother, Fanny Hess, to whom he was so devoted that a death mask of her hung on his
wall until he died. After leaving school, Karl studied medicine at the University of Vienna, graduating in
1891. Even while he was a student, he had begun to do biochemical research and in 1891 he published
a paper on the influnce of diet on the composition of blood ash. To gain further knowledge of chemistry he
spent the next five years in the laboratories of Hantzsch
at Zurich, Emil Fischer at Wurzburg and
E.Bamberger at Munich.
Karl made numerous contributions to pathological anatomy, histology and immunology, all of which
showed not only his meticulous care in observation and description, but also his his biological understanding.
But his name will no doubt always be honnoured for his discovery in 1901 of, and outstanding work on, the
blood groups, for which he was given the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1930.
In 1901-1903 Karl Pointed out that a similiar reaction may occur when the blood of one human
individual is transfused, not with the blood of another animal, but with that of another human being, and that
this might be the cause of shock, jaundice and haemoglobinuria that had followed some earlier attempts at
blood transfusions.
His suggestions, however, received little attention until, in 1909, he classifified the bloods of human
beings into the now well-known A, B, AB and O groups.

The story was based on a true story and from the novel having the same title. The film tells us about Gita
Sesa Wanda Cantika or Keke (Dinda Hauw),
a 13-year-old girl who was quite fortunate, since she
had a wealthy family. She had two elder brothers and parents who loved and cared about her. In addition,
Keke also had six loyal friends who always accompained her. Her life was even more complete with the
presence of a lover, named Andy (Esa Sigit), who was also very fond of her.
Everything seemed so perfect. Until then cancer attacked her. Keke suffered from Rhabdomyosarcoma
(cancer which attacks soft tissue), and she was the first Indonesian person who was attacked by the cancer.
This beautiful girl, then, turned into amonster and she was forced to undergo a series of chemotherapy and
radiation for almost a year. Consequently, Kekes hair began to fall out, her skin became dry and often nausea.
Kekes and her familys patient paid off. She was declared cured and could do her activities as usual.
Unfortunately, a year later the cancer returned. This was even more severe and lethal. Keke understood
that it was impossible for her to survive, but she didnt give up and go down. Her passion to continue to be
the best was not even weakened. She was just like the star of Sirius which was still shining brightly despite
the clouds covered the sky.
