Animal testing also helps to ensure the safety of drugs and many other subtances humans
use or are exposed to regularly. Scientists typically use animals for testing puspose
because they are considered similiar to humans.

The contra on the issue of animal testing is that countless animals are
experimented on and then killed after their use. Others are injured and will still live the
rest of their lives in cativity. Many of these animals received tests for subtances that will

never actually be used for public consumption and use. Animal testing generally costs an
enermous amount of money as the animals must be fed, housed, cared for and treated
with drugs or experimental subtances. The price of the animal themselves must also be
factored into equation.

As a result of the controversy, regulations and laws should be enforced. At the


very least, animal suffering should be minimized and that animals should be respected
during their care. If animal testing is to continue, animals must be abused.
21. Which of the following is the reason why scientists use animals for
testing?
A. Animals are the same as humans

B. Animals need to be fed, housed, and cared for
C. Drugs and experimental subtances are useless
D. Animal testing costs enormous amount of money

23. From the text above, we can conclude that . . . .
A. Medical experiments should be limited

The following text is for questions 23 to 25.


My family of three went to see an early screenering of the new Disney movie, Brave
yesterday, so i thought I would write a quick mommy review of the movie.

Disney definitely breaks the standart Disney Princess mold with this movie as
Princess Meride is a fun, outgoing and wild girl that for once is not in search for the love of a
prince. The characters in the movie are entertaining and i loved the way that Scoutish culture
comes out in the movie. I found myself wishing for more music though, which is one of the
things that I truly love about past Disney movies. I would compare this movie more with
Shrek than a movie like Tangled

As to the age of the kids that would like this movie I would have to say maybe 5 years
old and up. The movie is not quite enganging enough for very young viewers, which was a
little disappointing for our three years old. There were parts of the movie that our daughter
enjoyed, but it is enganging enough for younger viewers in the audience and made them cry,
so be forewarned of this if youre bringing children under the age of five years old.

Ive always been a big fan of Disney movies so on a 5-star scale I would rat ethis 4-
star movie. Its definetely not a favorite, but I give it four stars for the relationship that build
between Merida and her mother . I think this offers a great lesson to appreciate your family
and truly listen to each others needs and concerns.

24. What does the writer think of the music in Brave?


A. Too much
B. Too little
C. Wild enough
D. Demonstrative
E. Very beautiful
25. What does the reviewer think of the movie?
A. It is definetely not her favorite
B. It has a good music composition
C. It is the same as the other Disney movies
D. It does not have any lesson for the children
E. It gives a bed impression of a mom and a daughter
26. How does the writer feel about the movie?
A. Amazed
B. Frustrated
C. Appreciative
D. Disappointed
E. Not worthy

feature of having a pouch. The pouch of a wombat is, perhaps strangely, backward facing.

This is of evolutionary benefit to the wombats natural behavior though. As wombat


use their rodent like front teeth and powerful claws to burrow, and their backwards
pouches prevent their offspring from getting covered in dirt.

Though these stubby creatures may appear cute, they commonly become increasingly
aggressive as they reach adulthood. The wombat is, however, still cuddly enough to have
its own day, which is celebrated every October 22.
27. What is the similarity between kangaroo and wambat?
A. They are aggresive
B. They have long legs
C. Their rodent-like front teeth
D. The position of thier pouch
E. Thwy belong to marsupial animal
28. The information given in the text describes that wombat . . . .
A. Is a strange animal
B. Has backward pouch
C. Is a powerful animal
D. Looks like a kangaroo
E. Has the same physical with kangaroo
29. Based on the text, we may conclude that wombat . . . .
A. Can make a hole
B. Is an animal like kangaroo
C. Is a big and strange animal
D. Is kangaroo evolutionary
E. Is always a dangerous animal.
