Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate
the correct answer to each of the questions.
If the salinity of ocean waters is analyzed, it is found to vary only slightly from place to
place. Nevertheless some of these small changes are important. There are three basic processes that
cause a change in oceanic salinity. One of these is the subtraction of water from the ocean by means
of evaporation-conversion of liquid water to water vapor. In this manner the salinity is increased
since the salts stay behind. If this is carried to the extreme of course white crystals of salt would be
left behind: this, by the way, is how much of the table salt we use is actually obtained.
The opposite of evaporation is precipitation, such as rain by which water is added to the
ocean. Here the ocean is being diluted so that the salinity is decreased. This may occur in areas of
high rainfall or in coastal regions where rivers flow into the ocean. Thus salinity may be increased by
the subtraction of water by evaporation or decreased by the addition of fresh water by precipitation
or runoff.
Normally in tropical regions where the Sun is very strong, the ocean salinity is somewhat
higher than it is in other parts of the world where there is not as much evaporation. Similarly, in
coastal regions where rivers dilute the sea salinity is somewhat lower than in other oceanic areas.
A third process by which salinity may be altered is associated with the formation and melting
of sea ice. When seawater is frozen, the dissolved materials are left behind. In this manner seawater
directly beneath freshly formed sea ice has a higher salinity than it did before the ice appeared.Of
course when this ice melts, it will tend to decrease the salinity of the surrounding water.
In the Weddell Sea, off Antarctica, the densest water in the oceans is formed as a result of
this freezing process, which increases the salinity of cold water. This heavy water sinks and is found
in the deeper portions of the oceans of the world.

Question 1. Which of the following statements about the salinity of a body of water can best be
inferred from the passage?
A. The temperature of the water is the most important factor.
B. Ocean salinity has little effect on sea life.
C. Various factors combine to cause variations in the salt content of water.
D. How quickly the water moves is directly related to the amount of alt.

A. Sea ice B. Seawater C. Salinity D. Manner

A. coastal areas B. turbulent areas
C. rainy areas D. tropical areas
Question 4. All of the following are processes that decrease salinity EXCEPT
A. evaporation B. precipitation

Question 5. Why does the author mention the Weddell Sea (paragraph 5)?
A. To show that this body of water has salinity variations
B. To give an example of cold-water salinity
C. To compare Antarctic waters with Arctic waters
D. To point out the location of deep waters

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate
the correct answer to each of the questions.
The first English attempts to colonize North America were controlled by individuals rather
than companies. Sir Humphrey Gilbert was the first Englishman to send colonists to the New World.
His initial expedition, which sailed in 1578 with a patent granted by Queen Elizabeth was defeated
by the Spanish. A second attempt ended in disaster in 1583, when Gilbert and hisship were lost in a
storm. In the following year, Gilbert's half brother, Sir Water Raleigh, having obtained a renewal of
the patent, sponsored an expedition that explored the coast of the region that he named "Virginia."
Under Raleigh's direction efforts were then made to establish a colony on Roanoke island in 1585
an6 1587. The survivors of the first settlement on Roanoke returned to England in 1586, but the
second group of colonists disappeared without leaving a trace. The failure of the Gilbert and Raleigh
ventures made it clear that the tasks they had undertaken were too big for any one colonizer. Within
a short time the trading company had supplanted the individual promoter of colonization.
