Dear advisor,
When I first time came to United States to study Western Literature, I never
dreamed I would fall in love – especially with an American. I had planned to spend two
years here getting my master’s degree and then return to Indonesia and teach. Now only
nine months later, everything has changed. I met Jim, started studying together and before I
knew it, I was engaged.
It was not exactly love at first sight, but almost. Jim parents’ are wonderful. They
said that they would love to have an Indonesian daughter-in-law. Unfortunately, my parents
are different story. They can’t accept the fact that I would marry someone who isn’t
Indonesian. They are very upset and wanted me to forget about Jim and all our plans for
wedding when we graduate.
I am so confused. I am really close to my parents and don’t want to hurt them. On
the other hand, I love Jim and want to spend the rest of my life with him. I think I would be
happy living in the US, but I am afraid my parents would never get over it. What suggestion
do you have for me?

Yours sincerely,

A butterfly is a mainly day-flying insect of the order Lepidoptera, which includes the
butterflies and moths. Like other holometabolous insects, the butterfly's life cycle consists of
four parts: egg, larva, pupa and adult. Most species are diurnal. Butterflies have large, often
brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight. Butterflies comprise the true
butterflies (superfamily Papilionoidea), the skippers (superfamily Hesperioidea) and the moth-
butterflies (superfamily Hedyloidea). All the many other families within the Lepidoptera are
referred to as moths. The earliest known butterfly fossils date to the mid Eocene epoch, between
40-50 million years ago. - cite_note-halletal2004-0
Butterflies exhibit polymorphism, mimicry and aposematism. Some, like the Monarch,
will migrate over long distances. Some butterflies have evolved symbiotic and parasitic
relationships with social insects such as ants. Some species are pests because in their larval
stages they can damage domestic crops or trees; however, some species are agents of pollination
of some plants, and caterpillars of a few butterflies (e.g., Harvesters) eat harmful insects.
Culturally, butterflies are a popular motif in the visual and literary arts.

Many cars, motorcycles and other modern vehicles have fuel warning light devices. It is
usually red which switches on automatically when the level of fuel in the tank is very low. The
warning light gives the driver information about the amount of petrol in the tank. When the light
switches on red, it tells the driver that the petrol in the tank is almost empty. Therefore he have to
put more fuel into the tank. However do you know how the fuel warning works?
Well this is the way the fuel warning light works and gives the driver information about
the accurate amount of the petrol in the tank. When the level of the fuel falls, the float inside the
tank moves downwards. When this condition happens, the arm also moves downwards and it
make the lever touch an electrical contact. This switches on the fuel light in the car dashboard.
The red light which appears in the fuel panel of the dashboard tells the driver that he needs more
petrol for his car. When he pours more petrol into the tank, this condition makes the fuel level
rise and it pushes the float upwards. In return it disconnects to the electrical contact and makes
the red light switch off.

Good and bad of coffee
Coffee is a beverage that either you love it or hate it. People who like it will drink it
everyday; at least once in the morning during breakfast. On the other hand, people who hate it
will blame its “stink” smell left in the mouth after drinking it, and more importantly the
numerous bad effects or even harms that caffeine can bring to the body.
Being loved and consumed by millions of people, the role of coffee in health is somehow
controversial. Over the years, numerous studies were conducted on its effect, either good or bad,
on heart disease, diabetes and other diseases but no definite conclusion has been arrived so far.
For example, a study, conducted by University of Athens and published in the American
Journal of Clinical Nutrition in June 2005, found that coffee drinkers' major blood vessels were
stiffer than those of non-coffee drinkers. As such, the researchers urged those people, who have
high blood pressure or other risk factors for heart disease and drink more than three cups of
coffee a day, to cut down on coffee consumption. In contrast, a report, published in Circulation
Journal in May 2006, showed that coffee drinkers did not have a higher risk of heart disease,
even for those whose coffee intake exceeding six cups per day
The American Heart Association has said that studies looking at a direct link between
caffeine, coffee, and heart disease have produced conflicting results, but 1 or 2 cups of coffee a
day does not seem harmful.
So, don’t worry too much about drinking coffee if you are not advised by your doctors to
abstain from coffee on medical grounds. But, do limit your intake to a maximum of 3 cups a day
since drinking too much coffee can likely harm our body because of its negative side effects.

42. What is the main topic of the text?

A. Different opinion about coffee for health.
B. The danger of coffee for our health
C. The effect of caffein on our heart
D. How to consome coffee properly

An interesting hybrid of popular film genres, Ghost showcases the talents of its entire
cast. While out on the town one evening, New York couple Sam (Patrick Swayze) and Molly
(Demi Moore) are confronted by a mugger. After submitting to his demands, Sam is murdered
anyway. He then finds himself a disembodied spirit, invisible to the living world, wandering
without hope until he finds a spiteful spirit aboard the subway (Vincent Schiavelli) who gives
him some helpful pointers on how to co-exist. Soon Sam comes back into contact with those he
knew in life, and he begins to learn piece-by-piece of his close friend and co-worker Carl's (Tony
Goldwyn) embezzling plot which caused his death; the apparent mugging was, in fact, a
premeditated murder. In the meantime, Carl has designs on Molly, and Sam is determined to
extract revenge. He contacts a psychic (Whoopi Goldberg), and together, the two set out to serve
justice and stop the maniacal Carl from getting to Molly. Blending comedy, romance, action, and
horror, Ghost was a box-office smash and managed to garner five Academy Award nominations,
