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 .

Beads were probably the first durable ornaments humans possessed, and the intimate relationship

they had with their owners is reflected in the fact that beads are among the most common items found

in ancient archaeological sites. In the past, as today, men, women, and children adorned themselves

with beads. In some cultures, certain beads are often worn from birth until death, and then are buried

with their owners for the afterlife. Abrasion due to daily wear alters the surface features of beads, and

if they are buried for long, the effects of corrosion can further changed their appearance. Thus, interest

is imparted to the bead both by use and the effects of time.

Besides their wearability, either as jewelry or incorporated into articles of attire,

beads possess the desirable characteristics of every collectible : they are durable, portable, available in

infinite variety, and often valuable in their original cultural context as well as in today's market.

Pleasing to look at and touch, beads come in shapes, colors, and materials that almost compel one to

handle them and to sort them.

Beads are miniature bundles of secrets waiting to be revealed : their history,manufacture, cultural

context, economic role, and ornamental use are all points of information one hopes to unravel. Even

the most mundane beads may have traveled great distances and been exposed to many human

experiences. The bead researcher must gather information from many diverse fields. In addition to

having to be a generalist while specializing in what may seem to be a narrow field, the researcher is

faced with the problem of primary materials that have little or no documentation. Many ancient beads

that are of ethnographic interest have often been separated from their original cultural context.

The special attractions of beads contribute to the uniqueness of bead research. While often

regarded as the“small change of civilizations”, beads are a part of every culture,and they can often

be used to date archaeological sites and to designate the degree of mercantile, technological, and

cultural sophistication.

Question 36.What is the main subject of the passage?

A.Materials used in making beads

B.How beads are made

C.The reasons for studying beads

D.Different types of beads

D.scarcity

Question 39. According to the passage, all of the following are factors that make people want to touch

beads EXCEPT the

A.shape

Question 40. The word “unravel” is closest in meaning to

A.communicate

B.transport

C.improve

D.discover

Question 41. It is difficult to trace the history of certain ancient beads because they

A.are small in size

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 .

If you look closely at some of the early copies of the Declaration of Independence, beyond the

flourished signature of John Hancock and the other 55 men who signed it, you will also find the name

of one woman, Mary Katherine Goddard. It was she, a Baltimore printer, who published the first

official copies of the Declaration, the first copies that included the names of its signers and therefore

heralded the support of all thirteen colonies.

Mary Goddard first got into printing at the age of twenty-four when her brother opened a printing

shop in Providence, Rhode Island, in 1762. When he proceeded to get into trouble with his partners

and creditors, it was Mary Goddard and her mother

who were left to run the shop. In 1765 they began publishing the Providence Gazette, a weekly

newspaper. Similar problems seemed to follow her brother as he opened businesses in Philadelphia and

again in Baltimore. Each time Ms. Goddard was brought in to run the newspapers. After starting

Baltimore's first newspaper, The Maryland Jounal, in 1773, her brother went broke trying to organize a

colonial postal service. While he was in debtor's prison, Mary Katherine Goddard's name appeared on

the newspaper's masthead for the first time.

When the Continental Congress fled there from Philadelphia in 1776, it commissioned Ms. Goddard to

print the first official version of the Declaration of Independence in January 1777. After printing the

documents, she herself paid the post riders to deliver the Declaration throughout the colonies.

During the American Revolution, Mary Goddard continued to publish Baltimore's only newspaper,

which one historian claimed was "second to none among the colonies." She was also the city's

postmaster from 1775 to 1789 ― appointed by Benjamin Franklin ― and is considered to be the first

woman to hold a federal position.

Question 44.With which of the following subjects is the passage mainly concerned?

A.The accomplishments of a female publisher

B.The weaknesses of the newspaper industry

C.The rights of a female publisher

D.The publishing system in colonial America

Question 45.Mary Goddard's name appears on the Declaration of Independence because

A.she helped write the original document

B.she published the document

C.she paid to have the document printed

D.her brother was in prison

Question 46.The word "heralded" is closest in meaning to

A.influenced B.announced

C.rejected

D.ignored

Question 47.The word "there" refers to

A.the colonies B.the print shop

C.Baltimore D.Providence

Question 48.It can be inferred from the passage that Mary Goddard was

A.an accomplished businesswoman

B.extremely wealthy

C.a member of the Continental Congress

D.a famous writer

Question 49.The word "position" is closest in meaning to

A.job

B.election

C.document

D.location

Question 50.According to the passage, Mary Goddard first became involved in publishing when she



A.was appointed by Benjamin Franklin

C.took over her brother's printing shop

Before the 1500's, the western plains of North America were dominated by farmers.

One group, the Mandans, lived in the upper Missouri River country, primarily in present-day North

Dakota. They had large villages of houses built close together. The tight arrangement enabled the

Mandans to protect themselves more easily from the attacks of others who might seek to obtain some

of the food these highly capable farmers stored from one year to the next.

The women had primary responsibility for the fields. They had to excercise considerable skill to

produce the desired results, for their northern location meant fleeting growing seasons. Winter

often lingered ; autumn could be ushered in by severe frost. For good measure, during the spring

and summer, drought, heat, hail, grasshoppers, and other frustrations might await the wary grower.

Under such conditions, Mandan women had to grow maize capable of weathering adversity. They

began as early as it appeared feasible to do so in the spring, clearing the land, using fire to clear

stubble from the fields and then planting. From this point until the first green corn could be harvested,

the crop required labor and vigilance.

Harvesting proceeded in two stages. In August the Mandans picked a smaller amount of the crop before

it had matured fully. This green corn was boiled, dried, and shelled, with some of the maize slated for

immediate consumption and the rest stored in animal-skin bags. Later in the fall, the people picked the

rest of the corn. They saved the best of the harvest for seeds or for trade, with the remainder eaten right

away or stored for later use in underground reserves. With appropriate banking of the extra food, the

Mandans protected themselves against the disaster of crop failure and accompanying hunger.

The women planted another staple, squash, about the first of June, and harvested it near the time of the

green corn harvest. After they picked it, they sliced it, dried it, and strung the slices before they stored

them. Once again, they saved the seed from the best of the year's crop. The Mandans also grew

sunflowers and tobacco ; the latter was the particular task of the older men.

Question 36.What is the main topic of the passage ?



A.The agricultural activities of a North American Society

B.Various ways corn can be used

C.The problems encountered by farmers who specialize in growing one crop

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 .

Hotels were among the earliest facilities that bound the United States together. They were both creatures and

creators of communities, as well as symptoms of the frenetic quest for community. Even in the first part of the

nineteenth century, Americans were already forming the habit of gathering from all corners of the nation for

both public and private, business and pleasure purposes. Conventions were the new occasions, and hotels were

distinctively American facilities making conventions possible. The first national convention of a major party to

choose a candidate for President (that of the National Republican party, which met on December 12, 1831, and

nominated Henry Clay for President) was held in Baltimore, at a hotel that was then reputed to be the best in the

country. The presence in Baltimore of Barnum's City Hotel, a six-story building with two hundred apartments,

helps explain why many other early national political conventions were held there.

In the longer run, too, American hotels made other national conventions not only possible but pleasant

and convivial. The growing custom of regularly assembling from afar the representatives of all kinds of

groups ― not only for political conventions, but also for commercial, professional, learned, and

avocational ones ― in turn supported the multiplying hotels. By mid-twentieth century, conventions

accounted for over a third of the yearly room occupancy of all hotels in the nation; about eighteen

thousand different conventions were held annually with a total attendance of about ten million

persons.

Nineteenth-century American hotelkeepers, who were no longer the genial, deferential “hosts” of the

eighteenth-century European inn, became leading citizens. Holding a large stake in the community, they

exercised power to make it prosper. As owners or managers of the local “palace of the public,” they

were makers and shapers of a principal community attraction. Travelers from abroad were mildly

shocked by this high social position.

Question 43.What is the main topic of the passage?

A.The size of early American hotels

B.The importance of hotels in American culture

C.How American hotels differed from European hotels

D.Why conventions are held at hotels

Question 44.The word “bound” in line 1 is closest in meaning to

A.led

B.protected C.tied D.strengthened

Question 45.The National Republican party is mentioned as an example of a group

A.from Baltimore

B.of learned people

C.owning a hotel

D.holding a convention

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 .

If you look closely at some of the early copies of the Declaration of Independence, beyond the

flourished signature of John Hancock and the other 55 men who signed it, you will also find the name

of one woman, Mary Katherine Goddard. It was she, a

Baltimore printer, who published the first official copies of the Declaration, the first

copies that included the names of its signers and therefore heralded the support of all thirteen

colonies.

Mary Goddard first got into printing at the age of twenty-four when her brother opened a printing

shop in Providence, Rhode Island, in 1762. When he proceeded to get into trouble with his partners

and creditors, it was Mary Goddard and her mother

who were left to run the shop. In 1765 they began publishing the Providence Gazette, a weekly

newspaper. Similar problems seemed to follow her brother as he opened businesses in Philadelphia

and again in Baltimore. Each time Ms. Goddard was brought in to run the newspapers. After starting

Baltimore's first newspaper, The Maryland Jounal, in 1773, her brother went broke trying to organize

a colonial postal service. While he was in debtor's prison, Mary Katherine Goddard's name appeared

on the newspaper's masthead for the first time.

When the Continental Congress fled there from Philadelphia in 1776, it commissioned Ms. Goddard

to print the first official version of the Declaration of Independence in January 1777. After printing the

documents, she herself paid the post riders to deliver the Declaration throughout the colonies.

During the American Revolution, Mary Goddard continued to publish Baltimore's only newspaper,

which one historian claimed was "second to none among the colonies." She was also the city's

postmaster from 1775 to 1789 ― appointed by Benjamin Franklin ― and is considered to be the first

woman to hold a federal position.
