Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

A letter of application is a sales letter in which you are both salesperson and product, for the purpose of an

application is to attract an employer's attention and persuade him or her to grant you an interview. To do this, the letter

presents what you can offer the employer, rather than what you want from the job.

Like a résumé, the letter of application is a sample of your work and an opportunity to demonstrate your skills and

personality. If it is written with flair and understanding and prepared with professional care, it is likely to be very effective.

While the résumé must be factual, objective, and brief, the letter is your chance to interpret and expand. It should

stateexplicitly how your background relates to the specific job, and it should emphasise your strongest and most relevant

characteristics. The letter should demonstrate that you know both yourself and the company.

The letter of application must communicate your ambition and enthusiasm. Yet it must be modest. It should be

neither aggressive nor compliant: neither pat yourself on the back nor ask for sympathy. It should never express

dissatisfaction with the present or former job or employer. And you should avoid discussing your reasons for leaving your

last job.

Finally, it is best that you not broach the subject on salary. Indeed, even if a job advertisement requires that you

mention your salary requirements, it is advisable simply to call them "negotiable." However, when you go on an interview,

you should be prepared to mention a salary range. For this reason, you should investigate both your field

and, if possible, the particular company. You don't want to ask for less than you deserve or more than isreasonable.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

At the beginning of nineteenth century, the American educational system was desperately in need of reform. Private

schools existed, but only for the very rich. There were very few public schools because of the strong sentiment that children

who would grow up to be laborers should not “waste” their time on education but should instead prepare themselves for their

life’s work. It was in the face of this public sentiment that educational reformers set about their task. Horace Mann is one of

the most well-known reformers of education in the United States. He is often credited with leading the Common School

Movement, which helped to lay the framework for a publicly funded education system. The contributions of the education

system reformer Horace Mann, have had a lasting effect on education in the United States. He felt that there was no excuse

in a republic for any citizen to be uneducated.As Superintendent of Education in the state of Massachusetts from 1837 to

1848, he initiatedvarious changes, which were soon matched in other school districts around the country. He extended the

school year from five to six months and improved the quality of teachers by instituting teacher education and raising teacher

salaries. Although these changes did not bring about a sudden improvement in the educational system, they at least

increased public awareness as to the need for a further strengthening of the system.

Question 46: The passage implied that to go to a private school, a student needed ______.

A. a lot of money

B. good grades

C. a strong educational background

D. a high level of intelligence

B. partly

C. urgently

D. completely

D. managed education in the state of Massachusetts.

Question 49: The word "they" in line 10 refers to ______.

A. systems

B. changes

C. teachers

D. salaries

Question 50: Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?

A. Horace Mann brought about changes in many schools in the United States.

B. Horace Mann suggested schools prepare children for their life’s work.

C. Horace Mann began raising teacher’s salaries.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

As late as 1800, women’s only place was in the home. The idea of women in the business world was unthinkable.

No “nice” woman would dream of entering what was strictly a “man’s world.” Even if she could, what would she do? Men

were positive that no woman could handle a job outside her home. This was such a widely accepted idea that when the

famous Brontë sisters began writing books in 1846, they disguised themselves by signing their books with men’s names.

Teaching was the first profession open to women soon after 1800. But even that was not an easy profession for women to

enter because most high schools and colleges were open only to men. Oberlin College in Ohio was the first college in

America to accept women.

Hospital nursing became respectable work for women only after Florence Nightingale became famous. Because she

was a wealthy and cultured woman, as well as a nurse, people began to believe it was possible for women to nurse the sick

and still be “ladies.” Miss Nightingale opened England’s first training school for nurses in 1860.

The invention of the typewriter in 1867 helped to bring women out of the home and into the business world. Because

women had slender, quick fingers, they learned to operate typewriters quickly and well. Businessmen found that they had to

hire women for this new kind of work. By 1900, thousands of women were working at real jobs in schools, hospitals, and

offices in both England and America. Some women even managed to become doctors or lawyers. The idea that “nice”

women could work in the business world had been accepted.

Read the the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the

question.

When we meet people for the first time, we often make decisions about them based entirely on how they look. And of

course, we too are being judged on our appearance. Undoubtedly, it's what's inside that's important but sometimes we can

send out the wrong signals and so get a negative reaction, simply by wearing inappropriate clothing.

When selecting your clothes each day, it is therefore important to think about who you're likely to meet, where you are

going to be spending most of your time and what tasks you are likely to perform. Clearly, on a practical level, some outfits

will be more appropriate to different sorts of activity and this will dictate your choice to an extent. However, there's no need

to abandon your individual taste completely. After all, if you dress to please somebody else's idea of what looks good, you

may end up feeling uncomfortable and not quite yourself.

Some colours bring your natural colouring to life and others can give you a washed-out appearance. Try out new ones

by all means, but remember that dressing in bright colours when you really like subtle neutral tones or vice versa will make

you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. You know deep down where your own taste boundaries lie. It may be fun to

cross these sometimes, but do take care not to go too far all at once.

Reappraising your image isn't selfish because everyone who comes into contact with you will benefit. You'll look better

and you'll feel a better person all round. And if in doubt, you only need to read Professor Albert Mehrabian's book Silent

Messages, which showed that the impact we make on each other depends 55 percent on how we look and behave, 38

percent on how we speak, and only seven percent on what we actually say.

(Adapted from "Expert First" by Jan Bell and Roger Gower)
