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 from 34 to 40.
Smallpox was the first widespread disease to be eliminated by human intervention. Known as a highly contagious viral disease, it broke out in Europe, causing the deaths of millions of people until the vaccination was invented by Edward Jenner around 1800. In many nations, it was a terror, a fatal disease until very recently. Its victims suffer high fever, vomiting and painful, itchy, pustules that left scars. In villages and cities all over the world, people were worried about suffering smallpox.
In May 1966, the World Health Organization (WHO), an agency of the United Nations was authorized to initiate a global campaign to eradicate smallpox. The goal was to eliminate the disease in one decade. At the time, the disease posed a serious threat to people in more than thirty nations.
Because similar projects for malaria and yellow fever had failed, few believed that smallpox could actually be eradicated but eleven years after the initial organization of the campaign, no cases were reported in the field. The strategy was not only to provide mass vaccinations but also to isolate patients with active smallpox in order to contain the spread of the disease and to break the chain of human transmission. Rewards for reporting smallpox assisted in motivating the public to aid health workers.
One by one, each small-pox victim was sought out, removed from contact with others and treated. At the same time, the entire village where the victim had lived was vaccinated.
By April of 1978 WHO officials announced that they had isolated the last known case of the disease but health workers continued to search for new cases for additional years to be completely sure.
In May 1980, a formal statement was made to the global community. Today smallpox is no longer a threat to humanity. Routine vaccinations have been stopped worldwide.

A. by educating them B. by isolating them from others C. by rewarding them for reporting cases D. by giving them vaccination Question 37: The word “they” refers to_____________.
A. cases B. health workers C. victims D. officials Question 38: The word “isolated” is closet in meaning to____________.
A. attended B. separated C. located D. restored

A. Previous projects had failed.
B. The World Health Organization mounted a worldwide campaign to eradicate the disease.
C. People are no longer vaccinated for it.

THE GREAT ENGERY DEBATE
Modern civilization is heavily dependent on energy. Without reliable power sources, we couldn’t operate machines, use transportation, communicate via the Internet, or do many other things.
Although everyone recognizes the importance of energy, deciding what kind of energy the world should use in the future is not a simple task. The two leading candidates for this role are green energy and nuclear energy.
Currently, most of the energy we use is derived from fossil fuels. Although this energy source has got us this far, there are several problems with it. For starters, it is a finite resource which is quickly running out. Some analysts have even estimated that the Earth could run out of coal and oil within the next 50 years. Burning fossil fuels also creates large amount of pollution, which is harmful to the environment. Although fossil fuels still provide the majority of our power, governments are seeking better energy sources to use going forward.
Green energy is one option that is becoming increasingly attractive. It includes technologies such as solar, wind, and hydro power. These are seen as clean sources of energy because they cause very little pollution. In addition, they are completely renewable, so there is no danger that it will run out. The major disadvantage with green energy sources is that they are not cheap.
The other alternative is nuclear power. Like green energy, it is also a renewable source of power that will not run out, and it also doesn’t produce air pollution. In addition, nuclear power is more reliable than green energy, as it doesn’t depend on sunshine, rain, or wind to operate. The major issues with nuclear power are safety concerns and nuclear waste. Nuclear power plants create a considerable amount of nuclear waste which is extremely hazardous to people’s health. If they happen to have a meltdown, this could destroy the surrounding area for years to come.
The recent nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan brought this reality into the spotlight once again. In response, Germany announced it would close down eight of its nuclear plants immediately,
and close the rest by 2022. Meanwhile, other nations refuse to give up on nuclear power, stating that these disasters are rare. The debate of whether to use green or nuclear power will likely continue for some time. In the end, it is quite possible that both energy sources will be used to fuel our planet.
Question 46: What is the focus of the passage?
A. Comparing future energy solutions B. Why energy is important
C. The energy sources used in the past D. Discussing how disasters affect power sources Question 47: What is the major problem with using fossil fuels?
A. They don’t generate lots of energy. B. They can often cause earthquakes.
C. They are too costly at the moment. D. They won’t be available for much longer.
Question 48: What is the main problem with green energy?
A. It won’t work at all in many nations. B. It costs more money than other solutions.
C. It creates lots of pollution. D. No one is interested in using it.
Question 49: The word “these” in paragraph 3 refers to _________.
A. generation of electricity B. seeking greener energy
C. cheap energy D. alternative energy
Question 50: Which of the following is a benefit of nuclear energy?
A. It is extremely safe. B. It is free for everyone.
C. It works no matter what the weather is like. D. It doesn’t create any waste.
Question 51: What does the author think is the most likely energy solution for the future?
A. Fossil fuels will continue to be the best choice.
B. People will all eventually support green energy.
C. A mix of different energy sources will be the answer.
D. Nuclear energy probably makes the most sense.
Question 52: The word “spotlight” in paragraph 5 is closest in meaning to _________.
A. attention B. concern C. area of light D. danger Question 53: It can be inferred from the passage that _________.
A. nuclear energy is renewable because it can be replenished B. nuclear power is more expensive than other sources
