Read the following text and answer questions 25 to 27.

Nelson Rohilahla Mandela was born in Transkei, South Africa on July 18, 1918. His father was
Hendry Mphakanyiswa of the Tembu Tribe. Mandela himself was educated at University College of
Fort Hare and the University of Witwatersrand where he studied law. He joined the African National
Congress in 1944 and was engaged in resistance against the ruling National Party’s apartheid
policies after 1948. He went on trial for treason in 1956-1961 and was acquitted in 1961.
After the banning of the ANC in 1960, Nelson Mandela argued for the setting up of a
military wing within the ANC. In June 1961, the ANC executive considered his proposal on the use
of violent tactics and agreed that those members who wished to involve themselves in Mandela’s
campaign would not be stopped from doing so by the ANC. This led to the formation of Umkhonto
we Sizwe.
Mandela was arrested in 1962 and sentenced to five year’s imprisonment with hard labor. In
1963, when many fellow leaders of the ANC and the Umkhonto we Sizwe were arrested, Mandela
was brought to stand trial with them for plotting to overthrow the government by violence. His
statement from the dock received considerable international publicity. On June 12, 1964, eight of the
accused, including Mandela, were sentenced to life imprisonment. From 1964 to 1982, he was
incarcerated at Robben Island Prison, off Cape Town; thereafter, he was at Pollsmor Prison, nearby
on the mainland.
During his years in prison, Nelson Mandela’s reputation grew steadily. He was widely accepted as
the most significant black leader in South Africa and became a potent symbol of resistance as the
anti-apartheid movement gathered strength. He consistently refused to compromise his political
position to obtain his freedom.
Nelson Mandela was released on February 11, 1990. After his release, he plunged himself
wholeheartedly into his life’s work, striving to attain the goals he and others had set out almost four
decades earlier.

The following text is for questions 28 to 30.

The meerkat or suricate, Suricata suricatta is a small mammal belonging to the mongoose family.
Meerkats live in all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Bostwana, in much of the Namib Desert in
Namibia and southwestern Angola, and in South Africa. A group of meerkat is called “mob”, “gang”
or “clan”. A meerkat clan often contains about 20 meerkats, but some super-families have 50 or
more members. In captivity, meerkats have an average life span of 12-14 years, and about half this
in the wild.
The meerkat is a small diurnal herpestid (mongoose) weighing on average about 731 grams
for females and 720 grams for females. Its long slender body and limbs give it a body length of 25 to
35 cm and an added tail length of 17 to 25 cm. It’s tail is not bushy like all other mongoose species,
but is rather long and thin tapers to a black or reddish colored pointed tip. Meerkats often stand on
their rear legs and gaze alertly over the southern African plains where they live. Mothers can even
nurse their young while standing.
Meerkats eat insects, lizards, birds and fruit. When hunting small game, they work together
and communicate with purring sounds. Meerkats are good hunters and are sometimes tamed for use
as rodent-catchers.

Questions 31 to 34 are based on the following text.

Snow begins in the atmosphere as water condenses into a tiny droplet. As more and more water
vapor condenses onto its surface, the droplets grow. Cold air then freezes this water into an ice
crystal.
Each ice crystal has a unique shape that depends on the surrounding air’s temperature and
water vapor content. If it is below freezing and there is a lot of water vapor in the air, the crystal
grows six evenly spaced branches. More and more water vapor collects on these branches and
freezes, making the ice crystal increasingly heavy. Eventually, the ice crystal falls from the sky,
leaving the cloud of precipitation that it helped to form. As it falls, the crystal continues to grow by
picking up more water vapor.
As it descends, the ice crystal can come into contact with warmer air that makes it melt
somewhat. The melting acts like a glue, causing crystals to bond together into larger flakes, forming
what many people think of as the “classic” fluffy snowflake. If the crystals melt too much and then
refreeze as they get closer to Earth’s surface, the precipitation falls as sleet instead of snow.
Once on the ground, snow will remain if temperatures are cold enough to keep it from
melting. Glaciers that form on mountains, for example, are made up of snow that accumulates on the
ground and eventually turns to ice.

31. What is the text about?


A. How snow is formed
B. How to keep snow from melting
C. Why ice crystal has unique shape
D. The importance of snow formation
E. Why snow happens in certain places
32. From the text above, we can conclude that….
A. Ice crystal grows six evenly spaced branches
B. Glaciers forming on mountains are made up of ice
C. Snowflakes downfall in a variety of sizes and shapes
D. Snow begins in the atmosphere as water condenses into a big droplet
E. Crystal fallen ice can survive in warmer temperature without melting

A. To describe the shape of a snow
B. To explain the process of snow formation
C. To show the reader how to form ice crystal
D. To tell information about characteristic of snow

This text is for questions 35 to 38.

Sometimes parents question whether they should have their children study at a course or just by
themselves. When students feels weak in a certain subject, attending a course is good for them.
However, parents should not force thir children to attend many courses.
Students who attend many courses may be dependent on their course teachers. They will
feel that have ’someone’ to go to when they have problems . They will just ask their teachers to help
them do difficult assignments, without knowing the process of solving a task.
Besides, attending many courses will make students tired, with less time to rest. As a result,
they cannot cencentrate and absorb well what they have learned, both at school or courses.
Based on the above reasons, it is clear that attending many courses is not good for students.
Therefore, it is better if students attend only one or two courses a week. Morever, parents should
make sure that their children benefit from the courses they attend, either by observation or questions
to the children.

This text is for questions 39 to 42.

There are many parents have to take a bus or drive their children to go to school. No wonder many
cars drop kids off at the school very morning outside the school. It seemed few students were
walking or riding their bikes to school.
Several studies over the past several years show that the children who walk or ride a bike as
a little as two kilometers to school every day just about reach the daily recommended activity level.
Part of the problem is that schooling is different than it was a generation ago. Specialization sees
many parents sending their children to unique education programs at schools outside of their
community. poor planning and growth patterns have also left thousands of children without a
neighborhood school, so busing and driving to distant communities is the only option.
Safe routes are another problem. Many parents worried the traffic chaos at drop-off time.
They think that it is too dangerous for kids on foot or bikes, so they choose do drive instead.

Abagnale proves to be a brilliant forger and charming master of deception, and he scams his way
through the United States and Europe, forging and encasing cheques to the tune of millions of
dollars to fund his womanizing, adventure-filled high life.
However, the FBI is soon hot on his tail and agent Carl Hanratty makes it his ultimate mission to
