British Columbia is the third largest Canadian province, both in areaand population. It is nearly
  1.5 times as large as Texas, and extends 800miles (1,280 km) north from the United States border. It includes Canada'sentire west coast and the islands just off the coast. Most of British Columbia is mountainous, with long, rugged ranges runningnorth and south. Even the coastal islands are the remains of a mountain rangethat existed thousands of years ago. During the last Ice Age, this range wasscoured by glaciers until most of it was beneath the sea. Its peaks now showas islands scattered along the coast. The southwestern coastal region has a humid mild marine climate. Seawinds that blow inland from the west are warmed by a current of warm waterthat flows through the Pacific Ocean. As a result, winter temperaturesaverage above freezing and summers are mild. These warm western winds alsocarry moisture from the ocean. Inland from the coast, the winds from the Pacific meet the mountainbarriers of the coastal ranges and the Rocky Mountains. As they rise tocross the mountains, the winds are cooled, and their moisture begins tofall as rain. On some of the western slopes almost 200 inches (500 cm)of rain fall each year.
More than half of British Columbia is heavily forested. On mountainslopes that receive plentiful rainfall, huge Douglas firs rise in toweringcolumns. These forest giants often grow to be as much as 300 feet (90 m)tall, with diameters up to 10 feet (3 m). More lumber is produced fromthese trees than from any other kind of tree in North America. Hemlock,red cedar, and balsam fir are among the other trees found in BritishColumbia.
  71. With which aspect of British Columbia is the passage primarily concerned? A) Its climate. B) Its culture. C) Its geography. D) Its history.
  72. In which part of British Columbia can a mild climate be found? A) In the southwest. B) Inland from the coast. C) In the north. D) On the entire west coast.
  73. In Paragraph 5, the word"heavily"could best be replaced by which of the following? A) widely. B) densely. C) chiefly. D) largely.
  74. Which of the following is NOT mentioned as a tree found in British Columbia? A) Hemlock. B) Cedar. C) Fir. D) Pine.
  75. What effect do the mountains have on winds?
A) Make them dry. B) Make them wet. C) Make them cool. D) Make them weak. Questions 76 to 80 are based on the following passage: When they advise your kids to"get an education"if you want to raise yourincome, they tell you only half the truth. What they really mean is to getjust enough education to provide manpower for your society, but not too muchthat you prove an embarrassment to your society. Get a high school diploma,at least. Without that, you are occupationally dead, unless your name happensto be George Bernard Shaw or Thomas Alva Edison and you can successfully drop out in grade school. Get a college degree, if possible. With a B.A., you are on the launchingpad (??è?¨|?§|??§???ì). But now you have to start to put on the brakes. If you go for amaster's degree, make sure it is an M. B. A., and only from a first-rateuniversity. Beyond this, the famous law of diminishing returns (?¨¤??ì3?§o|¨?Y????§|)begins to take effect. Do you know, for instance, that long-haul truck drivers earn more a yearthan full professors? Yes, the average 1977 salary for those truckers was??24,000, while the full professors managed to average just ??23,9
  30. A Ph.D. is the highest degree you can get, but except in a few specializedfields such as physics or chemistry, where the degree can quickly be turned toindustrial or commercial purposes, you are facing a dim future. There are morePh.D.s unemployed or underemployed in this country than in any other partof the world by far. If you become a doctor of philosophy in English or history or anthropologyor political science or languages or - worst of all - in philosophy, you runthe risk of becoming overeducated for our national demands. Not for our needs,mind you, but for our demands. Thousands of Ph.D.s are selling shoes, driving cabs, waiting on tables andfilling out fruitless applications month after month. And then maybe taking ajob in some high school or backwater college that pays much less than thejanitor (??????§?§?) earns. You can equate the level of income with the level of education only sofar. Far enough, that is, to make you useful to the gross national product,but not so far that nobody can turn much of a profit on you.
  76. According to the writer, what the society expects of education is to turn out people who . A) will not be a shame to the society B) will become skilled workers C) can take care of themselves D) can meet the demands as a source of manpower

  77. If you are as gifted as Bernard Shaw or Edison, . A) you can get a high school diploma without difficulty B) you will be successful in a grade school C) you can be professionally successful without a diploma D) the least you should do is to get a diploma
  78. Ph.D.s are most
