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 31 to 35.
Culture is the lens with which we evaluate everything around us; we evaluate what is proper or improper, normal or abnormal, through our culture. If we are immersed in a culture that is unlike our own, we may experience culture shock and become disoriented when we come into contact with a fundamentally different culture. People naturally use their own culture as the standard to judge other cultures; however, having our own judgement could lead us to discriminate other cultural values which are different from our own because we do not understand them.
Cultural diversity is important because our country, workplaces, and schools increasingly consist of various cultural, racial, and ethnic groups. We can learn from one another, but first we must have a level of understanding about each other in order to facilitate collaboration and cooperation. Learning about other cultures helps us understand different perspectives within the world in which we live and helps dispel negative stereotypes and personal biases about different groups.
In addition, cultural diversity helps us recognize and respect “ways of being” that are not necessarily our own, so that as we interact with others, we can build bridges to trust, respect, and understanding across cultures. Furthermore, this diversity makes our country a more interesting place to live, as people from diverse cultures contribute language skills, new ways of thinking, new knowledge, and different experiences.
Question 31: What is the passage mainly about?
A. The function of culture. B. The ways people use their own culture.
C. The benefits of culture diversity. D. The things we learn from culture.
Question 32: The word “which” in paragraph 1 refers to ________.
A. cultural values B. other cultures C. judgement D. standard
Question 33: Which of the following is the main reason for discrimination?
A. Valuating everything. B. Beingimmersed in a culture.
C. Contacting with a different culture. D. Making judgment.
Question 34: The word “dispel” in paragraph 2 mostly means ________.
A. remove B. contain C. realize D. discuss
Question 35: According to the passage, which of the following is NOT MENTIONED as the main contribution of people from diverse cultures to a country?
A. language skills B. different experiences
C. new ways of thinking D. a more interesting place
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 36 to 42.
We are a planet of seven billion people, and this number is growing by about 370,000 people every day. This is putting a huge strain on the planet’s natural resources. For many governments and environmental organizations, the race is on to drastically reduce our consumption of resources before they run out.
Water is one of our most precious resources. Our quality of life, as well as life itself, depends on the availability of clean, fresh water. It is the most widely used resource in industry, and plays a major role in energy production. Although 70 percent of the world is covered in water, only 2.5 percent of that is fresh water, and less than one percent of that freshwater is readily available to us. Yet we often overestimate how much water we have, and reduce it further through pollution or inefficient use.
Some 92 percent of all fresh water used annually is dedicated to growing plants and raising animals for food.This means that if water runs out, our food supply might follow. In India, it is estimated that future water shortages could reduce grain harvests by 25%. In a country where the population exceeds 1.2 billion people and is growing rapidly every year, this is a huge concern. India, like many developing countries, is already struggling to provide for its population. While most people in developed countries can get water at the turn of a tap, nearly four billion people elsewhere lack access to safe water, according to United Nations Development Report.
Rain forests are another endangered resource. While rain forests are critically important to humanity, they are rapidly being destroyed by human activities. The biggest cause of deforestation is conversion of forest land for agriculture. Often called the “Lungs of the Planet”, rain forests once covered 14 percent of the Earth’s land surface, but this has shrunk to only six percent. Every second, an area of rain forest, the size of a football field, is destroyed at this rate. Rain forests will possibly disappear completely in less than 40 years.
