Passage 5 : Henry Ford and the Model-T Henry Ford became famous and rich because he found a better, faster way to build cars. This is shown in the history of the Model-T. When the Model-T was first introduced in 1908, it took 14 hours to build and cost $850. After Ford introduced into his own factory that mass-production techniques that he saw in a meatpacking plant, the time for building a Model-T was reduced to less than two hours. As a result, Ford was able to drop the price of the car to $ 265. By 1927, he had sold over 15 million Model-Ts.

Passage 6.

Its a big country!

When visitors to the United States leave the crowded cities of the East Coast or Midwest, they are likely to comment on the use of space. Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and even the central part of Chicago may look similar to great cities anywhere in the world. However, urban areas in other parts of the country, and specially those in the wide West, look different. Take Denver or Los Angeles, for example. Although statistics show that many people there live in apartments, these buildings are small compared to the multi-storied apartment blocks of Moscow, Cairo and Beijing. The mid-size city of Tucson, Arizona (population 700,000), which developed in a broad desert valley with several streams to feed it, covers an area larger than all of Chicago ( population 7 million). In Tucson, most people live in individual houses. They drive their cars (or pickup trucks) to work and shop in large shopping malls with huge parking lots. Perhaps its the farmer or cowboy influence: each family has its own horse and its own piece of land.

28.- Visitors to the United States often comment on the use of space

in ____________. a.- Boston, New York and Philadelphia. b.- the central part of Chicago. c.- large apartment buildings d.- urban areas of the West.

Passage 7 : Staying in touch

People dont need to be in close physical contact to feel connected emotionally. Over the years, various means of communication have been used to enable human beings to keep in contact with one another. Letters, telegrams, and telephones have allowed individuals located in different places to share news and to interact with family, friends, and business relationships.

In todays world, with more and more people on the move, long-distance communication has become even more important. At the same time, changes in technology, particularly the introduction of computers and the increasing use of electronic mail, have made it easier than ever to stay in contact. There are two main reasons why e-mail has become so widespread: time and money. Although mail service and telephones can be found almost everywhere, a letter can take a long time to arrive and phone calls are often quite expensive.

E-mail seems to be replacing other forms of communication for many purposes. As the use of computers has spread, many people use e-mails rather than regular mail to send personal messages. Because it has become so easy to send pictures and information via the Internet, it has also become commonplace to use e-mail in business. E-mail has even given rise to a new type of communication, the chat room, where groups of people who do not know each other personally can talk about topics of mutual interest. While some people are enthusiastic about communication in the modern age, others regret the growing depersonalization brought on by the use of e-mail. Communication has become so easy and yet so removed from the normal process of face-to-face interaction that researchers have concluded that a whole new culture of communication may be forming.

32.- The main idea of the article is that ___________. a.- these days people dont communicate enough b.- modern means of communication cost too much. c.- letter and phone calls are more effective d.- e-mail is changing the way we live

33.- Modern communications enable people to ___________. a.- see each other more often b.- write more letters and telegrams c.- keep in contact with one another

d.- move from place to place quickly

34.- In comparison with a telephone call, e-mail is ___________. a.- more acceptable b.- more personal c.- slower d.- cheaper

35.- _________ is a new type of communication made possible by e-mail. a.- A personal message b.- A chat room c.- Long-distance discussion d.- Sending information

Passage 8 : Headaches

Everyone has experienced headaches, but only recently have medical researchers begun to learn more specifically about the causes and possible treatments for different types of headache pain. The most common type of headache is the simple tension headache. Tension headaches are usually mild and short-lasting and can result from various factors, such as stress caused by worry or noise. Tension headaches are caused by a tightening of the neck or back muscles, which slows the flow of blood and, therefore, oxygen to the brain. It is the lack of oxygen that causes the pain. Most headaches can be relieved by taking a mild analgesic such as aspirin. Analgesics expand the blood vessels and restore the normal flow of blood and oxygen to the brain. A more serious type of headache is the migraine. Migraine headaches are often extremely painful and can last for hours or days. Like tension headaches, they can be the result of different factors, including stress, hormonal changes, and allergies. Unlike tension headaches, however, they are caused by an abnormal expansion or swelling (rather than a contraction) of the blood vessels within the

head. Medicines that shrink swollen blood vessels can be used to treat migraine headaches. A tiny minority of headaches can be linked to severe physical problems such as head injury or brain tumors. For these types of headaches, there are medicines to treat the symptoms, but there is no cure unless the underlying problem is removed. 36.- This article discusses the ____________. a.- tiny minority of people who have headaches. b.- history of medical research into headaches c.- causes and remedies for headaches d.- physical problems causes by headaches.

37.- A tension headache can result when ____________. a.- the neck and back muscles relax b.- people get injured in an accident c.- the flow of blood is restricted d.- too much oxygen goes to the brain

38.- Migraine headaches ___________. a.- are the most common kind of headache b.- usually last only a few minutes c.- can cause extreme pain d.- have one main cause 39.- Medicines for migraines ___________. a.- relax the head and neck b.- generally relieve tension c.- increase the flow of blood d.- cause blood vessels to contract 40.- Headaches caused by serious physical problems ___________.

a.- cant be treated b.- dont cause much pain c.- have no symptoms d.- are not very common

For the meditator, the ability to concentrate is so strong that everything around him - sounds, smells, movement - seems to fade in importance. At the same time, decision making and deep thinking are often greatly improved.

Passage 5.- The Scot and the tea kettle According to one story, a Scottish boy watched the steam lift the top off his mothers tea kettle and realized the power of steam to make machines work. That boy, James Watt, would then go on to invent the modern steam engine in 1769. Actually, the history of steam technology records the successful work of several scientists and engineers before Watt. For example, in 1698, Thomas Savery had introduced a simple steam pump to remove water from mines, and 14 years later Thomas Newcomen invented a better pump. But these pumps werent efficient because they used so much fuel. In 1769, the Scottish boy, James Watt, figured out a way to save three-quarters of the fuel. To honor him, his last name became the name of a unit of energy.

46.- The example of the boiling tea kettle shows that steam is ______________ . a.b.47.useful efficient c.d.powerful necessary

The first steam engines _____________ . a.b.didnt pump water cost too much to build c.d.were difficult to make used too much fuel

Passage 6.- Its a big country! When it comes to body weight, Americans stand out. Most visitors to the United States, no matter where they go across this vast country, comment on the size of

many Americans. In fact, these impressions are backed by numerous statistics. For example, the average 54 American weighs 162 punds, or 15 pounds more than the average person of the same height from Western or Central Europe. Another comparison: at 150 pounds, the average 54 American woman is 24 pounds heavier than her Japanese counterpart. Why are Americans so heavy? Some blame the American diet. Certainly its true that Americans eat more high-fat foods - meat, dairy products, and processed food - and fewer grains and vegetables than people in other countries. But fat isnt the whole story. Lifestyle factors - including the tendency for Americans to drive rather than walk or ride a bicycle to work, to snack throughout the day, and to have so many labor-saving devices in the home appear to contribute to the problem.

48.- According to the article, visitors to the United States often comment on the size of ______________ a.b.population cities people

49.- According to the article, the average Western european weighs _____________ . a.b.more than an American more than a Central European c.d.less than an American lesst than a Japanese person

51.- The article implies that Americans would lose weight if they _____________ . a.snacked more often c.stayed at home more


rode bicycles to work


ate fewer vegetables

Passage 7.- Personality types What makes people the way they are? Why so some people get angry easily, others always seem to be cheerful, while still others are often depressed? The early Greek doctor Hippocrates thought that personality was linked to the fluids that were known to exist in the human body: the blood, the bile, the black bile, and the phlegm. These fluids were called the four humors.He believed that inside each person, one kind of body fluid was dominant and that this fluid - or humor caused a tendency toward a particular kind of behavior. If the flood (sanguinis) was dominant, the person was sanguine, or cheerful and willing to help others. If the yellow bile of the liver (called choler) was the most important, the person would be irritable and quick to anger. If the person often sad and depressed, the black fluid of the spleen and kidnneys (melan-choler or black bile) was blamed. And the person who had too much phlegm (the thick mucus of the nose and throat) was likely to be lazy, calm, and dull (not very intelligent). Today we know that personality results from a combination of lifestyle and natural factors, and has little or nothing to do with the balance of body fluids. However, even today the words remain: humorous, sanguine, choleric, melancholy, phlegmatic. Although psychologists no longer use them, they have become part of common vocabulary - with some changes of course. For example, today to say that a person is humorous means that the person laughs and makes others laugh, from the idea of having "good" humor. 52.According to the article, the early Greeks knew that ______________ . a.- there are different fluids in the human body b.- people who laugh a lot are humorous c.- everyone shows the same basic behavior d.- personality is the result of lifestyle factors


For the early Greeks, humor was the name for a type of _____________


personality type body part


natural fluid internal organ

54.- Hippocrates believed that _____________ was dominant in a happy person. a.b.blood bile bile phlegm

55.- Today the word humorous is used to describe a persons _____________ . a.b.blood type lifestyle c.d.personality body fluids

Passage 8.- Biofeedback

When biofeedback was first developed a number of year ago, it caused a lot of excitement. People hoped that biofeed-back could be used to cure all kinds of physical and mental problems. Biofeedback is the name for a medical technique that helps people treat certain problems by becoming more aware of their own bodies. In biofeedback, instruments that measure bodily functions such as muscle tension, temperature, and blood flow are attached to the body. The instruments produce signals - for example, a series of sounds (beeps) or a flashing light - that the person can hear or see. The patient then uses the information to help gain control over the function. The most widely used biofeedback instrument is the electromyograph, or EMG. The EMG is used to measure muscle tension. It is made up of several electrodes, which are placed on the skin near a particular area, depending on the symptom. For example, for headaches, a symptom often caused by excessive tension in the neck muscles, the electrodes are placed on the forehead or near the back of the neck. When the tension is present, the EMG produces a signal and the patient is taught to respond by relaxing the appropriate muscles. In many cases, the relaxation of these muscles causes the headache to go away. While biofeedback has not turned out to be a cure-all, it has been used successfully to treat a limited number of problems-especially those caused by

chronic tension. 56.At first, people were very _____________ biofeedback. a.b.c.d.nervous about interested in familiar with opposed to
