#,READING COMPREHENSION ,"Read the passage carefully and select the one correct
answer from the four choices (A, B,C, or D)!",,,,,
#,Reading 1 for 6 next questios,"The practice of signing and numbering individual prints was
introduced by James Abbott McNeill Whistler, the nineteenth century artist best known for the
painting of his mother, called "Arrangement in Grey and Black," but known to most of us as
"Whistler Mother." Whistler's brother-in-law, Sir Francis Seymour Haden, a less well-known
artist, had speculated that collectors might find prints more attractive if they knew that there
were only a limited number of copies produced. By signing the work in pencil, an artist could
guarantee and personalize each print. As soon as Whistler and Haden began signing and
numbering their prints, their work began to increase in value. When other artists noticed that
the signed prints encouraged higher prices, they began copying the practice. Although most
prints are signed on the right-hand side in the margin below the image, the placement of the
signature is matter of personal choice. Indeed, prints have been signed within the image, in
any of the margins, or even on the reverse side of the print. Wherever the artists elects to sign
it, a signed print is still value above an unsigned one, even in the same edition.",,,,,

#,Reading 2 for 5 next questions ,"Champor is a very useful chemical. It is generally used for
making motion picture films, celluloid, and medicines. The champor tree grows mainly in
Japan, China, and Formosa, but some places in the United States also are home to the
camphor tree. The camphor tree grows tall and has white flowers and green leaves. The
chemical is removed from the branches by steaming. It is almost transparent. The chemical so
obtained is then drained and pressed to remove oil and water. Then chemical itself remains in
the form of whitish crystals, which are then treated until they are in liquid form. Although it
has medical qualities, it can be extremely poisonous if taken in large doses.",,,,,

#,Reading 1 for 9 next questions ,"Bile is a heavy, bitter, greenish-yellow fluid secreted by the
liver at the rate of a couple of pints daily. It, along with pancreatic juices and secretions by the
small intestine, functions as an aid in the digestive process. The bile itself maintains the
alkaline level of the small intestine and dissolves fats. The bile continues to form between
meals although it is not needed then. The function of the gall bladder is to hold this bile until
it is needed. During digestion, the bile flows from the liver through the common bile duct and
into the duodenum, or first section of the small intestine. Between meals, the muscle over the
duodenum, or sphincter of Oddi, prevents the bile from entering. It is then that the bile is
forced into the gall bladder, which is a small sack underneath the right portion of the liver. At
times, because of a malfunction of a duct or one of the digestive organs, bile will stagnate in
the gall bladder, and gall stones will form. This consist largely of cholesterol, and when the
gall bladder contracts, especially while the patient is sleeping, the stones may cause extreme
pain, like a heavy pressure either near the liver or in the middle of the chest where the rib
cages meet. The stones may also cause jaundice, since the flow of bile to the duodenum may
be impeded. If the stones are very small, they may flow down into the intestines or pancreas,
causing additional problems. Generally, the only way to alleviate the problem is to remove the
gall bladder itself, as it is generally too difficult te remove only the stones. As with the tonsils
and appendix, it is accepted practice to remove the gall bladder when trouble occurs. But one
can get along quite well without a gall bladder. The bile is still produced by the liver and still
flows to the small intestine. The only difference is that it is no longer stored in the gall
