5) Read the following passage, then answer the questions:

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. I’d like to start by explaining that

the purpose of our latest expedition to South America was not originally to

study habitat loss. As some of you may know, a few years ago I published a

book about the wildlife of the Amazon after having travelled extensively in

the region.

The purpose of our latest trip was to follow up on the work I had done

before. As time went on, however, I realized, to my horror, that a number

of the places I’d visited the first time were no longer tropical rainforests.

The trees had been cut down, so they simply lay bare, because the rain had

washed away the thin layer of the topsoil day by day and made the land

completely useless.

A- Answer the following questions:

1. What is the effect of man on nature as you understand from the

above passage?

2. How did the speaker feel about that?

3. What does the underlined verb 'washed away' mean?

B- Choose the correct answer from a, b, c or d:

4. The above passage can be a part of a/an ………… .

a. article b. poster c. presentation d. interview

5. The speaker organized his latest expedition to the Amazon to ……… .

a. study habitat loss b. build on what he learnt

c. write a book about it d. fertilize the soil

6) Read the following passage, then answer the questions:

Sometimes students ask to be given a list of topics which might come

up in the English exam, so that they can prepare for them. As this is an

English language exam, there’s no strictly prescribed topical content. The

best advice is to take a wide interest in topics of all kinds. However,

environmental topics like global warming, pollution and world problems

appear in the exam. The reason for using them is that they are of general

interest, international in perspective and they affect everyone.

To help yourself feel more confident and comfortable with the topics,

you can watch documentaries or current affairs programmes in English.

You can also read newspapers. You might find that, you not only feel more

at ease with exam topics, more fluent at using the language, but you can

also have fascinating things to share with your friends after school.

A- Answer the following questions:

1. Why is it inadvisable for students to be given a list of topics?

2. According to the passage, how can you be familiar with different

topics?

3. What does the underlined pronoun 'them' refer to?

B- Choose the correct answer from a, b, c or d:

4. Some students ask to be given a list of topics to …… them in the exam.

a. organize b. advise c. help d. confuse

5. When you are at ease, you are …………… .
