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 29 to 35.
It would be easy to feel intimidated by someone who has survived abduction by the Khmer Rouge, run the London marathon shortly after losing their lower right arm and leg in an accident and appeared on the BBC’s Parkinson show. Yet Chris Moon, 39, is refreshinglydown to earth, even to the point of finding it difficult to keep the initial appointments for this interview, proving that even superheroes can’t be in two places at once.
At present, Chris runs a company called Making the Best (MTB) to help clients solve problems in human resources and security management. You don’t need to speak to him for long before you realise that this is a particularly appropriate title. Not only does he talk with an almostevangelicalzeal about his desire to empower others to get the best out of themselves and their business, but his own philosophy is all about making the best of any situation, however grimitmay seem.
“I decided it was about doing the best we can, reaching our full potential and making use of our talents. It’s also about involvement with other people. I wanted to make a difference, do something I could be trained in but also grow as a person, so I decided to join the army.” On graduating from Sandhurst, he was commissioned into the Royal Military Police and also served with several infantry units.
After leaving the army, he felt he wanted to do some sort of charity work, and when he heard that the British charity, the HALO Trust - which specialises in mine clearance - wanted an army officer with agricultural and command experience, he was keen to get involved. It was while clearing mines in Cambodia that he was abducted by the Khmer Rouge, an experience which, not surprisingly, had a profound effect on him. “When we were first kidnapped, I thought I had no control as I kept thinking I can’t do anything about this. But my one thought was never to assume the role of victim. It would have been so easy to give up, but I quickly realised that fear is a state of inactivity. You have to be positive and pursue logic and reason. That was, and still is, my driving force.”
The things he learned from this experience helped him to survive when he was blown up by a mine two years later, while walking in a supposedly clear area in Mozambique. He lost his lower right arm and leg, but does not consider himself a victim. He accepts responsibility because he chose to work in mined areas. So, after all the experiences he has been through, is he surprised to find himself running his own business? “My mum’s cousin had an extremely successful dairy business and when I was very young, he said to me: ‘When you’ve done all the other things you want to do, set up a business and help the best out of people.’ He obviously had it right.”

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 42 to 46.
In April 1961, Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin made history when he became the first man to travel in space. On July 20, 1969, American astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the Moon. Now that humans have been to the Moon and robots have been sent to Mars, some people believe the next step is for humans to visit Mars. There's no doubt that the first person to walk on Mars will become as famous as Gagarin or Armstrong, and many astronauts would love the opportunity. But what is space travel really like for the men and women who go on these missions?
Many astronauts suffer physical problems on these missions, even if they are in space for just a few months. Some of these problems are short-lived; others may be long-lasting. More than two-thirds of all astronauts suffer from motion sickness while traveling in space. In an environment without gravity, the body cannot tell up from down. The body's internal balance system sends confusing signals to the brain, which can result in nausea lasting as long as a few days. The amount of blood and other fluids in the body also ends up being distributed differently after an extended period of time in this environment. More fluid than normal ends up in the face, neck, and chest, resulting in a puffy face, bulging neck veins, and a slightly enlarged heart.
In addition to physical difficulties, astronauts who travel for long periods may also suffer from psychological stress. Space travel requires astronauts to be very focused, balanced people. The irregular sleep, long working hours, and the lack of night and day can affect a person's emotions and stress level.
Being able to control one's emotions is an important characteristic for an astronaut. A major factor that affects astronauts' mental well-being is time. To date, astronauts have only spent a few months in space at a time, but longer expeditions would require astronauts to spend significantly more time inside a spaceship. Being confined in a small space for such a long period of time is not healthy.
Astronauts- especially those who achieved significant “firsts” such as Gagarin and Armstrong-are often seen as exciting adventurers. This may be accurate, but it's also worth remembering their dedication and the sacrificestheymake to explore our universe.

A.dedication B.people C.robots D.astronauts

A.Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was the first man to fly to space in April 1961 B.The longest time spent in space by an astronaut is a year
