Section B
Questions 11 through 13 are based on the following passage. Walking up to someone you don’t know and starting a conversation is key to making new friends. Making a small talk can also lead to important business relationships, but it requires
1
confidence, preparation and practice. Do it well, and people will feel at ease with you and enjoy your company. So how can you learn the art of a small talk? Before you go to a business confidence or other social situation, prepare three things that you can talk about. It can be something in the news, a good movie or a popular sports team. That way you are prepared and have a topic to begin with when you meet a new person. Also, don’t wait for someone to approach you. Look for someone who is standing alone, and start a conversation. Try a simple statement that establishes some common ground like: “The food looks delicious.” Or “There sure are a lot of people here.” Then introduce yourself, “Hi, I’m Helen.” And hold out your hand for a handshake. After you start a conversation, keep it going. Instead of asking questions that can be answered with a yes or no, ask open-ended questions like “What do you think of the conference?” Once you’ve made a good impression, move on. Making a small talk will open doors to meeting many interesting people. When you show an interest in others, they become interested in talking to you.
  11. Which of the following is not needed to start a small talk? (B)
  12. What should you do if you want to meet a new person? (C)
  13. What question had you better ask if you want to keep the conversation going? (D) Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage. Forces other than damaging winds are also at work inside tornadoes. Sometimes as the funnel of the tornado passes over a house, the wall and the ceiling burst apart as if a bomb had gone off inside. The low air pressure at the center of a tornado causes this explosion. The pressure at the center of a tornado is usually 13 pounds per square inch. However, inside the house the air pressure is normally at 15 pounds per square inch. There is only a difference of 2 pounds per square inch between the outside and inside of the house. This difference of pressure may not seem like much, but suppose a tornado funnel passes over a small building that measures 20 by 10 feet. On each square inch of the building there is a difference of 2 pounds of pressure from inside that is not balanced by the air pressure from outside the building. The unbalanced pressure of the ceiling and the four walls adds up to 172,800 pounds. That is the amount of pressure that makes the building burst apart. If windows are open in the building, some of the inside air will be able to rush out. This will balance the pressure inside and outside the building. But if the windows are shut tightly, the enormous inside pressure may cause the building to burst. Unfortunately, heavy rain and hail often occur in thunderstorms that later produce tornadoes. So people often shut all windows to protect their property. This may cause far worse damage later. For the same reason, tornado cellars must have an air vent. Otherwise, the cellar door might be blown out when a tornado passes over it.
  14. Why can tornadoes destroy buildings? (D)
  15. How can the pressure on a building be relieved during a tornado? (B)
  16. Which of the following is the main topic of the passage? (D)
Section C

Blanks 21 through 24 are based on the following conversation. M: Students’ Home Search Agency. W: This is Kelly Lam. I’m calling about the apartment for rent. M: Which one? W: Oh, um…the one on Peace Road. I spoke to you yesterday. M: Oh, yes. I’m sorry. That one’s not available anymore. W: Oh, no. M: But we have another one if you’re interested. W: In the same neighborhood? M: Uh-huh. Not really. But it’s quite similar to the one on Peace Road. W: Can you tell me more about it? M: Well, it’s got a bigger living room than the one on Peace Road, along with a kitchen. W: Is there a backyard off the living room? M: Sorry. That’s the only difference between this one and the Peace Road Apartment. There’s no backyard. W: But it’s got two big bedrooms? M: Yes. One with its own bathroom and…let me see…there’s a second bathroom and even a study. W: Sounds great. When can I see it? M: If you want, we can go over there right now. It’s on Market Street, about ten minutes’ walk from the university.
