Directions:In this section, you will hear 3 passages. At the end of each passage, you will hear 3 or 4 questions. : After you hear a question, you must choose the best answer from the four choices marked A, B, C and D. Then mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the centre. Passage One One of the oldest customs of mankind is the celebration of the New Year. Some people say the Chinese were the first to start it, others believe it was the ancient Germans, and still others claim it was the Romans. We know that the Chinese have always had a great festival at the time of their New Year, which comes later than ours. The Chinese New Year festival lasts several days. The ancient Germans established a New Year festival because of the changing seasons. The German winter began in about the middle of November. It was the time when they gathered the harvest. Because everybody came together at this time for the happy occasion, and because it meant they would have a period of rest from work afterwards. They would make merry and have a great holiday. Even though it was November, they considered it the beginning of the New Year! When the Romans conquered Europe, they changed this time of celebration to the first of January. From then on the coming of the New Year was a symbol of a new life with new hope for the future. This custom and this meaning have lasted to this day. We celebrate the New Year hoping it will bring us a good life. Questions 21 to 23 are based on the passage you have just heard.
  21. What is the author's nationality?
  22. Who are NOT mentioned to have started the celebration of New Year?
  23. Why do people celebrate the New Year festival nowadays? Passage Two According to a recent poll, a large majority of Americans are in favor of retaining the present 55-mile-an-hour speed limit. This speed was imposed in 1973 when fuel shortages became crucial. Seventy-five percent of the persons surveyed think that the law is a good one. They point to the decrease in the highway death rate or to the saving of fuel as reasons for their opinion. Easterners and older people, rather than young adults, are more likely to argue for retention of the law. Likewise, only 23 percent of the people surveyed favor a higher speed limit for trucks. The trucking industry contends that truck engines work more efficiently at higher speeds and that trucks traveling at higher speeds reach markets more quickly, thereby saving consumers money. Some of the persons polled argue that trucks on certain highways are already involved in a disproportionate number of fatal highway accidents. Questions 24 to 26 are based on the passage you have just heard.
  24. What was the principle reason for the original imposition of the 55-mile-per-hour speed limit?
  25. Which of the following are less likely to favor retaining the 55-mile-per-hour speed limit?
  26. Why do truckers want a higher speed limit for trucks?

Passage Three Now, we'll bring you a special news bulletin. The three astronauts have splashed down safely in the Pacific Ocean, a hundred and forty-five miles southwest of Hawaii, only six miles from the aircraft carrier that was dispatched for the recovery mission. The space module floated down on three parachutes and landed right-side-up in the water. Mission Control in Houston confirmed that Parachutes and landing systems had functioned properly. Mission Control has advised that the astronauts to remain inside the module until they are lifted aboard the aircraft carrier. An air force helicopter is already hovering above the module and seven divers are in the process of attaching lines to the spacecraft. The astronauts have returned after fifteen days in space. Possibly one of the most important accomplishments of this mission was the extensive photographing of the Sun's surface. After two days of physical examinations and observation, the astronauts will fly to Houston to reunite with their families. Ladies and Gentlemen, we have confirmation that the astronauts are now aboard the aircraft carrier. They seem to be in very good conditions and they prepare for the welcoming ceremonies. Questions 27 to 30 are based on the passage you have just heard.
  27. According to the reporter, where did the spacecraft splash down?
  28. How many divers were in the process of attaching lines to the spacecraft?
  29. How long had the astronauts been in space?
  30. According to the reporter, where are the astronauts now?
