III. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow. (1p)

Christmas is almost here. Holiday music fills the air. Colorful lights shine brightly in windows. The stores are

crowed with people buying last-minute gifts. All these are Christmas traditions. Another tradition is snow.

Christmas in the northern part of the world comes a few days after the star of winter. So, in many places, a

blanket of clean white snow covers the ground on Christmas Day. This is what is mean by a “While Christmas”.

Of course, many places do not get snow in December. In fact, they may be very warm at that time of year.

People who like snow - but live where it is warm -dream of having a white Christmas. American songwriter

Irving Berlin captured these feelings in his song “White Christmas”. ”White Christmas” is one of the most

popular songs of all times. Hundreds of singers and musicians have recorded it. Perhaps the most famous version

was sung by Bing Crosby. Songwriter Irving Berlin was Jewish. He did not celebrate Christmas as a religious

holiday. But in his Christmas song, he shared a message of peace and happiness which all people a joy.

So from all of us - to all of you-we wish the happiest and most joyful holiday.

I. Read the passage carefully.(1.0 point)

After inventing dynamite, Swedish-born Alfred Nobel became a very rich man. However,

he foresaw its universally destructive powers too late. Nobel preferred not to be remembered

as the inventor of dynamite, so in 1895, just two weeks before his death, he created a fund to

be used for awarding prizes to people who had made worthwhile contributions to mankind.

Originally there were five awards: literature, physics, chemistry, medicine and peace.

Economics was added in 1968, just sixty-seven years after the first awards ceremony. Nobel's

original legacy of nine million dollars was invested, and the interest on this sum is used for the

awards which vary from $30,000 to $125,000.

Every year on December 10, the anniversary of Nobel's death, the awards (gold medal,

illuminated diploma, and money) are presented to the winners. Sometimes politics plays an

important role in the judges' decisions. Americans have won numerous science awards, but

relatively few literature prizes. No awards were presented from 1940 to 1942 at the beginning

of World War II Some people have won two prizes, but this is rare; others have shared their

prizes.

Answer the questions

1. When did Nobel become a very rich man?

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

2. In how many fields are the prizes awarded?

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Choose the best answer A, B, C or D for each question

3. Why was the Nobel prize established?

A. To recognise worthwhile contributions to humanity.

B. To resolve political differences.

C. To honour the inventor of dynamite.

D. To spend money.

4. In which area have Americans received the most awards?



A. Literature



B. Peace



C. Economics



D. Science



5. Which of the following statements is NOT TRUE?

B. Ceremonies are held on December 10 to commemorate Nobel's invention.

C. Politics can play an important role in selecting the winners.

D. A few individuals have won two awards.
