Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate

For more than six million American children, coming home after school means coming back to an 
empty house. Some deal with the situation by watching TV. Some may hide. But all of them have 
something in common. They spend part of each day alone. They are called “latchkey children”. 
They are children who look after themselves while their parents work. And their bad condition has 
become a subject of concern. 
Lynette Long was once the principal of an elementary school. She said, “We had a school rule 
against wearing jewelry. A lot of kids had chains around their necks with keys attached. I was 
constantly telling them to put the keys inside shirts. There were so many keys; it never came to my 
mind what they meant.” Slowly, she learned that they were house keys. 
She and her husband began talking to the children who had keys. They learned of the effect 
working couples and single parents were having on their children. Fear was the biggest problem 
faced by children at home alone. One in three latchkey children the Longs talked to reported being 
frightened. Many had nightmares and were worried about their own safety. 
The most common way latchkey children deal with their fears is by hiding. They may hide in a 
shower stall, under a bed or in a closet. The second is TV. They often turn the volume up. It’s hard to 
get statistics on latchkey children, the Longs have learned. Most parents are slow to admit that they 
leave their children alone.

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 71 to 80. 
It is commonly believed that school is where people go to get an education. Nevertheless, it has 
been said that today children interrupt their education to go to school. The difference between 
schooling and education implied by this remark is important. 
Education is much more open-ended and all-inclusive than schooling. Education knows no 
limits. It can take place anywhere, whether in the shower or on the job, whether in the kitchen or on a 
tractor. It includes both the formal learning that takes place in school and the whole universe of 
informal learning. The agent (doer) of education can vary from respected grandparents to the people 
arguing about politics on the radio, from a child to a famous scientist. Whereas schooling has a 
certain predictability, education quite often produces surprises. A chance conversation with a 
stranger may lead a person to discover how little is known of other religions. People receive 
education from infancy on. Education, then, is a very broad, inclusive term; it is a lifelong process, a 
process that starts long before the start of school, and one that should be a necessary part of one’s 
entire life. 
Schooling, on the other hand, is a specific, formalized process, whose general pattern varies little 
from one setting to the next. Throughout a country, children arrive at school at about the same time, 
take the assigned seats, are taught by an adult, use similar textbooks, do homework, take exams, 
and so on. The pieces of reality that are to be learned, whether they are the alphabet or an 
understanding of the workings of governments, have been limited by the subjects being taught. For 
example, high school students know that they are not likely to find out in their classes the truth about 
political problems in their society or what the newest filmmakers are experimenting with. There are 
clear and undoubted conditions surrounding the formalized process of schooling. 
Question 71: This passage is mainly aimed at ______. 
A. giving examples of different schools 
B. telling the difference between the meaning of two related words 
C. listing and discussing several educational problems 
D. telling a story about excellent teachers

Question 73: The word “all-inclusive” in the passage mostly means ______. 
A. going in many directions B. involving many school subjects 
C. allowing no exceptions D. including everything or everyone 
Question 74: According to the passage, the doers of education are ______. 
A. mainly politicians B. mostly famous scientists 
C. only respected grandparents D. almost all people 
Question 75: What does the writer mean by saying “education quite often produces surprises”? 
A. It’s surprising that we know little about other religions. 
B. Success of informal learning is predictable.
