correct answer to each of the questions from 16 to 22.
Harvard University, today recognized as part of the top echelon of the worlds universities, came
from very inauspicious and humble beginnings.
This oldest of American universities was founded in 1636, just sixteen years after the Pilgrims
landed at Plymouth. Included in the Puritan emigrants to the Massachusetts colony during this period were
more than 100 graduates of Englands prestigious Oxford and Cambridge universities, and these university
graduates in the New World were determined that their sons would have the same education opportunities
that they themselves had had. Because of this support in the colony for an institution of higher learning, the
General Court of Massachusetts appropriated 400 pounds for a college in October of 1636 and early the
following year decided on a parcel of land for the school; this land was in an area called Newetowne,
which was later renamed Cambridge after its English cousin and is the site of the present-day university.
When a young minister named John Harvard, who came from the neighboring town of
Charlestowne, died from tuberculosis in 1638, he willed half of his estate of 1,700 pounds to the fledgling
college. In spite of the fact that only half of the bequest was actually paid, the General Court named the
college after the minister in appreciation for what he had done. The amount of the bequest may not have
been large, particularly by todays standards, but it was more than the General Court had found it necessary
to appropriate in order to open the college.
Henry Dunster was appointed the first president of Havard in 1640, and it should be noted that in
addition to serving as president, he was also the entire faculty, with an entering freshman class of four
students. Although the staff did expand somewhat, for the first century of its existence the entire teaching
staff consisted of the president and three or four tutors.

A. Harvard University developed under the auspices of the General Court of Massachusetts.
B. Harvard is one of the worlds most prestigious universities.

D. what is today a great university started out small.
Question 17: The passage indicates that Harvard is
A. one of the oldest universities in the world B. the oldest university in the world
C. one of the oldest universities in America D. the oldest university in America
Question 18: It can be inferred from the passage that the Puritans who traveled to the Massachusetts
colony were
A. rather well educated B. rather rich
C. rather supportive of the English government D. rather undemocratic
Question 19: The pronoun they in line 7 refers to
A. Oxford and Cambridge universities B. university graduates
C. sons D. educational opportunities
Question 20: Which of the following is NOT mentioned about John Harvard?
A. What he died of B. Where he came from
C. Where he was buried D. How much he bequeathed to Harvard
Question 21: The word fledgling in paragraph 3could best be replaced by which of the following?
A. flying B. newborn C. winged D. established
Question 22: The passage implies that
A. Henry Dunster was an ineffective president.
B. someone else really served as president of Harvard before Henry Dunster.
C. the position of president of Harvard was merely an administrative position in the early years.
D. Henry Dunster spent much of his time as president managing the Harvard faculty.

There are a number of natural disasters that can strike across the globe. Two that are frequently
linked to one another are earthquakes and tsunamis. Both of them can cause a great amount of devastation
when they hit. However, tsunamis are the direct result of earthquakes and cannot happen without them.
The Earth has three main parts. They are the crust, the mantle, and the core. The crust is the outer
layer of the Earth. It is not a single piece of land. Instead, it is comprised of a number of plates. There are a
few enormous plates and many smaller ones. These plates essentially rest upon the mantle, which is fluid.
As a result, the plates are in constant yet slow motion. The plates may move away from or toward other
plates. In some cases, they collide violently with the plates adjoining them. The movement of the plates
causes tension in the rock. Over a long time, this tension may build up. When it is released, an earthquake
happens.
Tens of thousands of earthquakes happen every year. The vast majority are so small that only
scientific instruments can perceive them. Others are powerful enough that people can feel them, yet they
cause little harm or damage. More powerful earthquakes, however, can cause buildings, bridges, and other
structures to collapse. They may additionally injure and skill thousands of people and might even cause the
land to change it appearance.
Since most of the Earths surface is water, numerous earthquakes happen beneath the planets
oceans. Underwater earthquakes cause the seafloor to move. This results in the displacement of water in the
ocean. When this occurs, a tsunami may form. This is a wave that forms on the surface and moves in all
directions from the place where the earthquake happened. A tsunami moves extremely quickly and can
travel thousands of kilometres. As it approaches land, the water near the coast gets sucked out to sea. This
causes the tsunamis to increase in height. Minutes later, the tsunami arrives. A large tsunami one more
than ten meters in height can travel far inland. As it does that, it can flood the land, destroy human
settlements, and kill large numbers of people.
Question 25: Which of the following statements does paragraph 1 support?
A. The most severe type of natural disaster is an earthquake.
B. A tsunami happens in tandem with an earthquake.

A.locate B. prevent C. comprehend D. detect
Question 30: Which of the following is true regarding the crust?
