correct answer to each of the questions from 36 to 45. 
One of the factors contributing to the intense nature of twenty-first-century stress is our continual 
exposure to media – particularly to an overabundance of news. If you feel stressed out by the news, 
you are far from alone. Yet somehow many of us seem unable to prevent ourselves from tuning in to 
an extreme degree. 
The further back we go in human history, the longer news took to travel from place to place, and 
the less news we had of distant people and lands altogether. The printing press obviously changed all 
that, as did every subsequent development in transportation and telecommunication. 
When television came along, it proliferated like a population of rabbits. In 1950, there were 
100,000 television sets in North American homes; one year later there were more than a million. 
Today, it’s not unusual for a home to have three or more television sets, each with cable access to 
perhaps over a hundred channels. News is the subject of many of those channels, and on several of 
them it runs 24 hours a day. 
What’s more, after the traumatic events of September 11, 2001, live newscasts were paired with 
perennial text crawls across the bottom of the screen – so that viewers could stay abreast of every 
story all the time. 
Needless to say, the news that is reported to us is not good news, but rather disturbing images and 
sound bytes alluding to disaster (natural and man-made), upheaval, crime, scandal, war, and the like. 
Compounding the problem is that when actual breaking news is scarce, most broadcasts fill in with 
scare stories about things that possibly might threaten our health, safety, finances, relationships, 
waistline, hairline, or very existence in the future. This variety of story tends to treat with equal alarm 
a potentially lethal flu outbreak and the bogus claims of a wrinkle cream that overpromises smooth 
skin. 
Are humans meant to be able to process so much trauma – not to mention so much overblown 
anticipation of potential trauma – at once? The human brain, remember, is programmed to slip into 
alarm mode when danger looms. Danger looms for someone, somewhere at every moment. Exposing 
ourselves to such input without respite and without perspective cannot be anything other than a 
source of chronic stress. 
 (Extracted from The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Beating Stress by Arlene Matthews Uhl - Penguin Group 2006) 
Question 36: According to the passage, which of the following has contributed to the intense nature of 
twenty-first-century stress? 
A. The degree to which stress affects our life B. Our inability to control ourselves 
C. An overabundance of special news D. Our continual exposure to the media 
Question 37: In the past, we had less news of distant people and lands because ______. 
A. printing, transportation, and telecommunications were not developed 
B. means of communication and transportation were not yet invented 
C. most people lived in distant towns and villages 
D. the printing press changed the situation too slowly 
Question 38: The pronoun “them” in paragraph 3 refers to ______. 
A. TV channels B. TV news C. television sets D. cable access 
Question 39: The word “traumatic” in paragraph 4 is closest in meaning to ______. 
A. fascinating B. upsetting C. exciting D. boring

______. 
A. are full of dangerous diseases such as flu 
B. send out live newscasts paired with text across the screen 
C. are forced to publicise an alarming increase in crime 
D. send out frightening stories about potential dangers

______. 
A. be scarce breaking news B. involve natural and man-made disasters 
C. be treated with equal alarm D. be warmly welcomed by the public

A. fail B. bring C. release D. fall

obviously ______.

Read the following passage on climate change, and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer 
sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 71 to 80. 
Experts in climatology and other scientists are becoming extremely concerned about the changes 
to our climate which are taking place. Admittedly, climate changes have occurred on our planet 
before. For example, there have been several ice ages or glacial periods. 
These climatic changes, however, were different from the modern ones in that they occurred 
gradually and, as far as we know, naturally. The changes currently being monitored are said to be the 
result not of natural causes, but of human activity. Furthermore, the rate of change is becoming 
alarmingly rapid. 
The major problem is that the planet appears to be warming up. According to some experts, this 
warming process, known as global warming, is occurring at a rate unprecedented in the last 10,000 
years. The implications for the planet are very serious. Rising global temperatures could give rise to 
such ecological disasters as extremely high increases in the incidence of flooding and of droughts. 
These in turn could have a harmful effect on agriculture. 
It is thought that this unusual warming of the Earth has been caused by so-called greenhouse gases, 
such as carbon dioxide, being emitted into the atmosphere by car engines and modern industrial 
processes, for example. Such gases not only add to the pollution of the atmosphere, but also create a 
greenhouse effect, by which the heat of the sun is trapped. This leads to the warming up of the planet. 
Politicians are also concerned about climate change and there are now regular summits on the 
subject, attended by representatives from around 180 of the world's industrialized countries. Of these 
summits, the most important took place in Kyoto in Japan in 1997. There it was agreed that the most 
industrialized countries would try to reduce the volume of greenhouse gas emissions and were given 
targets for this reduction of emissions. 
It was also suggested that more forests should be planted to create so-called sinks to absorb 
greenhouse gases. At least part of the problem of rapid climate change has been caused by too drastic 
deforestation. 
Sadly, the targets are not being met. Even more sadly, global warnings about climate changes are 
often still being regarded as scaremongering. 
(From Read and Understand 2 by Betty Kirkpatrick & Rebecca Mok - Learners Publishing Pte Ltd 2005)

D. They were partly intended. 
Question 72: The word “alarmingly” in paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to ______.
