    The Olympic Games were first held in Olympia in ancient Greece to honour the Greek god Zeus. These ancient Olympics began in the year 776 B.C. and continued until 392 A.D., that is, for more than 1,000 years. Only male athletes competed in these games. They competed in different sports activities, but there were competitions also in poetry, music and other arts. At the beginning and end of the Games, animals were killed and offered to Zeus. When people stopped believing in the Greek gods, the Olympic Games were cancelled. The Olympic Games were brought back in 1896, when the first modern Olympic Games were held in Athens, the capital of Greece. Only nine countries with about 250 athletes participated in these first modern Games, and again all the athletes were male. Today, about 10,000 athletes from about 200 countries compete in the Olympic Games, and nearly half of them are women.

    New Yorkers are often regarded as being unkind. Actually, this is not a fair attitude. They are willing to help people who need help, but experience has taught them a lot of people don’t want to be helped. Are New Yorkers less kind people – less caring on the inside – than city dwellers in other places? Not at all. When you talk to them about this, many give good reasons for their reluctance to help strangers. Most have been taught early on that reaching out to people you don’t know can be dangerous. To survive in New York, they were taught that they should avoid even the potentially suspicious. Some also express concern that others might not want help, that the stranger, too, might be afraid of outside contact or might feel insulted. Many tell stories of being abused for trying to help. As one woman explains, she saw an elderly man with a walking stick who appeared unable to cross a busy street. When she gently offered to help, he replied angrily, “When l want help, I’ll ask for it. Mind your own business.” Over and over, New Yorkers say that they care deeply about the needs of strangers, but that the realities of city living prevent them from reaching out. People speak with nostalgia of the past, when they would pick up hitchhikers or arrange a meal for a hungry stranger.

    58. The aim of the passage is to —-.
    1.   ?    to encourage people to be more helpful
    2.   ?    show that the old man was not angry but afraid

    4.   ?    show that the people of New York are not basically unkind
    5.   ?    help us to understand why the old man in the story was so angry

    When sunlight heats the earth, it also heats the atmosphere. As hot air rises, cooler and heavier air rushes in to fill its place, thus creating wind. For more than 2,000 years, people have captured this energy with windmills and used it to do useful things, such as grinding grain or pumping water. By the late 19th century, windmills were also being used to produce electricity, mostly in rural areas. Compared with traditional windmills, however, modern wind turbines are far more efficient.

    61. The major focus of the passage is on —-.
    1.   ?    the need for electricity in rural areas

    Travelling east along the coast to Antalya, you may easily miss the great Lake of Köyceğiz lying behind the orange trees. Visitors at nearby Dalyan sail regularly back and forth between the famous small peninsula of sand where turtles build their nests and the ancient ruins of Caunus four miles away. They may even visit the mud baths at the tip of the lake.

    Various estimates suggest that by 2050 nearly one third of the world’s energy needs could come from renewable sources such as solar power, wind power, geothermal power and hydrogen fuel cells. This leaves the other two thirds to come from conventional fossil fuels such as oil and gas. We have to find a balance between the need to protect people’s way of life and the environment, and the need to provide them with affordable energy; and also between the cost of developing new technology to get the most from fossil fuels, and the cost of developing new power sources.

    In the years following the Chernobyl reactor disaster in 1986, nuclear power was seen as a dying industry. Public support had lessened because of safety fears, and many countries decided to put a halt to new reactor construction. But there has recently been a dramatic revival of interest in nuclear energy, thanks to the twin threats of climate change and energy insecurity. Nuclear reactors do not emit CO2 when they generate electricity, so governments are increasingly seeing the construction of such reactors as a way to bring down carbon emissions and generate stable supplies of electricity.

    70. Based on the passage, we may conclude that —
    1.   ?    people were worried about safety conditions after the Chernobyl disaster
    2.   ?    in reaction to the Chernobyl event, many countries decided to have new reactors constructed
    3.   ?    stable supplies of electricity can be generated without the aid of nuclear reactors
    4.   ?    threats of climate change and energy insecurity have recently caused a lack of interest in clean energy
    5.   ?    as nuclear reactors emit CO2 when they generate electricity, governments are considering bringing down their numbers

    Teacher : – As you know, many of the animals that existed in the past have become extinct; that is, they have disappeared from the face of the earth, mostly as a result of human activities.
    Student : – Is it only human activities that have caused the extinction of animals?

    2.   ?    Of course. Natural events have never caused the extinction of any species other than the dinosaurs.
