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 from 36 to 42
New surveys suggest that the technological tools we use to make our lives easier are killing our leisure time. We
are working longer hours, taking fewer and shorter vacations (and when we do go away, we take our cell phones,
PDAs, and laptops along). And, we are more stressed than ever as increased use of e-mail, voice mail, cell phones, and
the Internet is destroying any idea of privacy and leisure.
Since the Industrial Revolution, people have assumed that new labor-saving devices would free them from the
burdens of the workplace and give them more time to grow intellectually, creatively, and socially – exploring the arts,
keeping up with current events, spending more time with friends and family, and even just ‘goofing off’.
But here we are at the start of the 21st century, enjoying one of the greatest technological boom times in human
history, and nothing could be further from the truth. The very tools that were supposed to liberate us have bound us to
our work and study in ways that were inconceivable just a few years ago. It would seem that technology almost never
does what we expect.
In ‘the old days’, the lines between work and leisure time were markedly clearer. People left their offices at a
predictable time, were often completely disconnected from and out of touch with their jobs as they traveled to and
from work, and were off-duty once they were home. That is no longer true. In today’s highly competitive job market,
employers demand increased productivity, expecting workers to put in longer hours and to keep in touch almost
constantly via fax, cell phones, e-mail, or other communications devices. As a result, employees feel the need to check
in on what is going on at the office, even on days off. They feel pressured to work after hours just to catch up on
everything they have to do. Workers work harder and longer, change their work tasks more frequently, and have more
and more reasons to worry about job security.
Bosses, colleagues, family members, lovers, and friends expect instant responses to voice mail and e-mail
messages. Even college students have become bound to their desks by an environment in which faculty, friends, and
other members of the college community increasingly do their work online. Studies of time spent on instant messaging
services would probably show staggering use.
This is not what technology was supposed to be doing for us. New technologies, from genetic research to the
Internet, offer all sorts of benefits and opportunities. But, when new tools make life more difficult and stressful rather
than easier and more meaningful – and we are, as a society, barely conscious of it – then something has gone seriously
awry, both with our expectations for technology and our understanding of how it should benefit us.
From “Summit 1” by Joan Saslow & Allen Ascher

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 from 43 to 50
Pollution emitted in industrial areas represents a threat to human health and the surrounding natural resources. We
have a tendency to believe that the production processes are the only source of environmental damage, and often
forget about the possible long-term effects of harmful production practices. We may think that the closure of these
huge industrial areas would improve the quality of the environment. Unfortunately, this ignores the threat of the
remaining waste, which is abandoned and poorly stored. It represents an even bigger danger because it stands
neglected as it degrades and leaks into the earth without any control at all.
Changes in the water chemistry due to surface water contamination can affect all levels of an ecosystem. It can
affect the health of lower food chain organisms and, consequently, the availability of food up through the food chain.
Contaminated groundwater can badly affect animals, plants and humans if it is removed from the ground by
manmade or natural processes. Depending on the study of rocks of the area, groundwater may rise to the surface
through springs or seeps, flow sideways into nearby rivers, streams, or ponds, or sink deeper into the earth. In many
parts of the world, groundwater is pumped out of the ground to be used for drinking, bathing, other household uses,
agriculture, and industry
Contaminants in the soil can harm plants when they take up the contamination through their roots. Eating,
breathing in, or touching contaminated soil, as well as eating plants or animals that have piled up soil contaminants
can badly affect the health of humans and animals.
Air pollution can cause breathing-related problems and other bad health effects as contaminants are absorbed from
the lungs into other parts of the body. Certain air contaminants can also harm animals and humans when they contact
the skin. Plants rely on breathing for their growth and can also be affected by exposure to contaminants moved in the
