Aging is the process of growing old. It occurs eventually in every living thing provided, of course, 
that an illness or accident does not kill it prematurely. The most familiar outward signs of aging may be 
seen in old people, such as the graying of the hair and the wrinkling of the skin. Signs of aging in a pet dog 
or cat include loss of playfulness and energy, a decline in hearing and eyesight, or even a light graying of 
the coat. Plants are too, but the signs are much harder to detect. 
Most body parts grow bigger and stronger, and function more efficiently during childhood. They 
reach their peak at the time of maturity, or early adulthood. After that, they begin to decline. Bones, for 
example, gradually become lighter and more brittle. In the aged, the joints between the bones also become 
rigid and more inflexible. This can make moving very painful. 
All the major organs of the body show signs of aging. The brain, for example, works less efficiently, 
and even gets smaller in size. Thinking processes of all sorts are slowed down. Old people often have trouble 
in remembering recent events. 
One of the most serious changes of old age occurs in the arteries, the blood vessels that lead from 
the heart. They become thickened and constricted, allowing less blood to flow to the rest of body. This 
condition accounts, directly or indirectly, for many of the diseases of the aged. It may, for example, result 
in heart attack. 
Aging is not a uniform process. Different parts of the body wear out at the different rates. There 
are differences among people in their rate of aging. Even the cells of the body differ in the way they age. 
The majority of cells are capable of reproducing themselves many times during the course of a lifetime. 
Nerve cells and muscle fibers can never be replaced once they wear out. 
Gerontologists- scientists who study the process of aging – believe this wearing out of the body is 
controlled by a built-in biological time-clock. They are trying to discover how this clock works so that they 
can slow down the process. This could give man a longer life and a great number of productive years. 
Question 18: What is the main idea of the first paragraph? 
A. Signs of aging are easier to detect in animal than in plants. 
B. Aging occurs in every living thing after it has reached maturity.

Diseases are a natural part of life on earth. If there were no diseases, the population would grow 
too quickly, and there would not be enough food or other resources, so in a way, diseases are natural ways 
of keeping the Earth in balance. But sometimes they spread very quickly and kill large numbers of people. 
For example, in 1918, an outbreak of the flu across the world, killing over 25 million people only in six 
months. Such terrible outbreaks of a diseases are called pandemics. 
Pandemics happen when a diseases changes in a way that our bodies are not prepared to fight. In 
1918, a new type of flu virus appeared. Our bodies had no way to fight this new flu virus, and so it spread

very quickly and killed large numbers of people. While there have been many different pandemic diseases 
throughout history, all of them have a new thing in common. 
First, all pandemics diseases spread from one person to another very easily 
Second, while they may kill many people, they generally do not kill people very quickly. A good 
example of this would be the Marburg virus. The Marburg virus is an extremely infectious disease. In 
addition, it is deadly. About 70%- 80% of all people who get the Marburg virus died from the diseases. 
However, the Marburg virus has not become a pandemic because most people die within three days of 
getting the diseases. This means that the virus does not have enough time to spread a large number of people. 
The flu virus of 1918, on the other hand, generally took about a week to ten day to kill its victims, so it had 
more time to spread. 
While we may never be able to completely stop pandemics, we can make them less common. 
Doctors carefully monitor new diseases that they fear could become pandemics. For example, in 2002, and 
2003, doctors carefully watched SARS. Their health warming may have prevented SARS from becoming a
