  2. Consumers purchase products and services to experience certain emotional states or achieve emotional goals in a process called emotional arousal. Emotions can create a feeling of pleasure or satisfaction, but they can also give the consumer the perception that their purchase will help them avoid a feeling of displeasure. No matter what the purchase is, consumers must somehow associate a positive emotional connection between a product and themselves. Positive emotions can include the fulfillment of a desire or the feelings of safety and protection.
    Consumers also have both unexpressed and expressed emotions. It is important to understand the difference between these emotions because if a consumer is purchasing but is not expressing any emotion toward a product, you may need to ask more questions in order to reach the customer on a deeper level. Doing so helps the consumers feel that they are somehow linked to your product and that it produces a favorable image of them. This reaction evokes consumer identification with your product and motivates them to buy – and keep buying – your product.

  6. Today’s symphony orchestra has its roots in 17th century bands. The earliest orchestras, usually attached to a church, or a theatre, varied in structure from place to place. They were often directed from the keyboard or by the principal violinist. During the 18th century, as popular works such as those by Haydn and Mozart began to be played all over Europe, some standardization of the orchestra became necessary. A string section comprising violins, violas, cellos, and double basses was usually joined by two horns, two flutes, two trumpets, and timpani. The clarinet became a standard member of the orchestra only at the end of the 18th century. The 19th century saw the rise of public concerts in large halls, which necessitated louder instruments and larger orchestras. As a result, instruments changed. They were redesigned and adapted to enable them to project further. Larger and smaller versions of some instruments, such as the piccolo, cor anglais, and bass clarinet, were featured more frequently. Some new instruments were also added, with trombones and later, tubas becoming standard members of the orchestra.
    According to the passage, the first orchestras —-.
    1.   ?    reached their audiences with louder instruments in larger halls
    2.   ?    were able to perform only in churches and theatres
    3.   ?    used the same instruments as modern orchestras do today

  31. It was a road that kicked off the pattern of destruction in the Amazon forest. During the 1970s, Brazil began building the Trans-Amazonian Highway from near the country’s easternmost point to its western border, where the state of Amazonas meets Peru. The route opened up the heart of the Amazon to settlement, causing deforestation rates to increase. During the 1990s and early 2000s, more than 25,000 square kilometres of rainforest per year were cleared out. Throughout these years, roads have provided the means to penetrate the forest and eliminate large chunks of it. In an unpublished study of the Brazilian Amazon, researcher Christopher Barber found that 95% of deforestation in the region occurs within 7 kilometres of a road. Once construction begins, road crews are quickly followed by land speculators, loggers, farmers, ranchers, gold miners and others who carve away the forest along the route. This creates great treeless expanses in the landscape, but research is now showing that the building of roads also triggers environmental changes in the remaining forest that can dry out trees, set the stage for wildfires, and weaken the ecosystem.
    Which of the following can be said about the Amazon forest?
    1.   ?    The rainforest has been suffering from a pattern of destruction in a scale it had not experienced before the 1970s.
    2.   ?    From the 1990s onwards, 25,000 square kilometres were being cut down every year to make way for the new highway.
    3.   ?    Although it damaged the forest, the new highway enabled the people of Amazonas to better travel to Peru.
    4.   ?    The state of Brazil had to build roads through it for the people who were settled in the forest.
    5.   ?    Deforestation has not only affected Brazil’s eastern and western borders, but it has also started to spread through other countries.

    Which of the following best describes the relationship between road construction and deforestation?
    1.   ?    The highway and its branching roads were built to provide the necessary means of penetrating the forest to erase the traces of deforestation.
    2.   ?    According to research on the Brazilian Amazon, a very large percentage of deforestation is a direct consequence of building the Trans-Amazonian Highway.
    3.   ?    Contrary to previous beliefs, research is now showing that road crews also set fires and dry out the trees during construction work.
    4.   ?    Although trees were cut down for the highway resulting in treeless landscapes, this was limited to an area of within 7 kilometres of a road.
    5.   ?    Since the road crews work with a lot of parties to carve away the forest, deforestation along the route is not affected at all.

  34. Consumers purchase products and services to experience certain emotional states or achieve emotional goals in a process called emotional arousal. Emotions can create a feeling of pleasure or satisfaction, but they can also give the consumer the perception that their purchase will help them avoid a feeling of displeasure. No matter what the purchase is, consumers must somehow associate a positive emotional connection between a product and themselves. Positive emotions can include the fulfillment of a desire or the feelings of safety and protection.
    Consumers also have both unexpressed and expressed emotions. It is important to understand the difference between these emotions because if a consumer is purchasing but is not expressing any emotion toward a product, you may need to ask more questions in order to reach the customer on a deeper level. Doing so helps the consumers feel that they are somehow linked to your product and that it produces a favorable image of them. This reaction evokes consumer identification with your product and motivates them to buy – and keep buying – your product.
    It is important to comprehend the difference between unexpressed and expressed emotions because —-.
    1.   ?    emotions are important in understanding why consumers buy certain products
    2.   ?    consumers need to get rid of any uncomfortable and unsafe feelings
    3.   ?    consumers make decisions based on perceptions rather than reality
    4.   ?    when consumers identify themselves with a particular product, they keep buying it
    5.   ?    these expressions are evidence of how consumers can reach emotional goals

    3.   ?    The doctors and nurses in this hospital are very
      well-trained. If I needed surgery, I guess I would also choose this hospital.
    4.   ?    Your mother’s surgery is a major one and the chances of a full recovery seem a bit low. Good luck to your mom.
    5.   ?    I know it’s difficult when our loved ones are ill, but I’m sure the operation will go well and your mother will feel better in a very short time.
  37. Jessica:  Why do you think Galileo Galilei is accepted as one of the most important scientists?
    Robert:  Because he invented the astronomical telescope and suggested the sun-centered Solar System.

    4.   ?    Doesn’t everybody know that his obsession with measurable experiments marked him as one of the founders of modern science?
    5.   ?    Maybe you can check it online before you believe what people say about him.
  38. For centuries, the world’s physicists, writers and philosophers have argued about whether time travel is possible, with most coming to the conclusion that it is never going to happen. But on a large plot of land just outside the small town of Comfort, Texas, a group of architects, engineers and scientists are building a ‘Timeship’ that they say it could transport tens of thousands of individuals to a far-distant future. Their approach does not involve the use of flux capacitors, or zooming at light-speed through black holes. Instead, the Timeship aims to store people at such low temperatures that their bodies are preserved for a future civilisation to reanimate them, a concept known as cryonics. “Just as a spaceship allows people to move through space, our Timeship will allow people to travel to another time in the future,” explains Stephen Valentine, who is the director and principal architect of the Timeship project.

  46. Women are roughly twice as likely as men to suffer from stress-related psychiatric disorders, according to epidemiological analyses. The big question has always been: Why? Some experts argue that cultural factors are at least partly responsible. For instance, women may be more willing than men to seek help for mental illness, making their cases more likely to be counted. —- Scientists are uncovering telling differences in the ways that male and female brains react and adapt to stress.

  58. A new helmet display promises to give bikers eyes in the back of their heads. The designer of the equipment states that the inherent problem with motorcycles is that the mirrors reflect a very small image and, because of the position of the mirrors, motorcyclists mostly just see their elbows. A small backlit display screen is added onto motorcycle helmets with an adjustable arm which lets riders place it just below or above their eye, in their peripheral vision. A rear-facing camera attached to the back of the bike streams live video via Wi-Fi to the helmet-mounted receiver. The images are processed and stabilised before they reach the display to accommodate for the bike’s movements. One glance at the display gives the rider a wide view of the road behind them. Although the screen is just next to the user’s face, optics fool the eye into focusing at a more comfortable distance of around 3 metres. However, it is still suggested that users should check their mirrors and do the lifesaver check, turning their heads to check blind spots.
    What is the problem regarding the motorcyclists’ vision?
    1.   ?    Mirror positions constantly need to be changed to follow traffic flow.
    2.   ?    It is difficult for bikers to get a broad view of the road behind them using only their mirrors.

    3.   ?    since the different layers of the eye keep it nice and moist, which is necessary for tear production
    4.   ?    because the surface of the eye is covered in a thin film of fluid to make it smooth
    5.   ?    even if tears cannot spread fast enough by themselves to keep up with the rate of evaporation

It grows in about 70 countries that offer suitable climates and altitudes. —- They are picked from the tree during harvest – they contain two seeds, which after processing become coffee beans. The main commercially grown coffee tree species are Arabica and Robusta. While Robustas are high-yielding and resistant to pests and diseases, producing coffee cherries with rustic flavour, Arabicas are generally superior in flavour.
    1.   ?    Many coffee varieties are genetically similar, but have acquired different regional or local names.
    2.   ?    The look and flavour of coffee are influenced by many forces, such as soil, sun exposure and rainfall patterns.

  67. Today’s symphony orchestra has its roots in 17th century bands. The earliest orchestras, usually attached to a church, or a theatre, varied in structure from place to place. They were often directed from the keyboard or by the principal violinist. During the 18th century, as popular works such as those by Haydn and Mozart began to be played all over Europe, some standardization of the orchestra became necessary. A string section comprising violins, violas, cellos, and double basses was usually joined by two horns, two flutes, two trumpets, and timpani. The clarinet became a standard member of the orchestra only at the end of the 18th century. The 19th century saw the rise of public concerts in large halls, which necessitated louder instruments and larger orchestras. As a result, instruments changed. They were redesigned and adapted to enable them to project further. Larger and smaller versions of some instruments, such as the piccolo, cor anglais, and bass clarinet, were featured more frequently. Some new instruments were also added, with trombones and later, tubas becoming standard members of the orchestra.
    What is the main purpose of the passage?
    1.   ?    To inspire and encourage people to start listening to classical music
    2.   ?    To give examples of the types of instruments which were changed or modified after the 19th century

  72. Eating healthily does not mean obsessing about the features of the specific nutrients in a meal, nor following the latest trends.
    1.   ?    Both the features of the particular nutrients in a meal and the most recent fashion should be continually followed to eat healthily.
    2.   ?    Being obsessed about the qualities of the particular nutrients in a meal and also following the latest trends do not help someone have a healthy diet.
    3.   ?    One does not need to be too interested in the features of the specific nutrients in a meal but needs to follow the most recent fashion.
    4.   ?    A healthy diet does not require us to think too much about the features of the specific nutrients in a meal but it does require an awareness of the recent trends.
    5.   ?    People who are not obsessed with the most recent trends and the qualities of some nutrients in a meal should achieve a healthy diet.

  74. It was a road that kicked off the pattern of destruction in the Amazon forest. During the 1970s, Brazil began building the Trans-Amazonian Highway from near the country’s easternmost point to its western border, where the state of Amazonas meets Peru. The route opened up the heart of the Amazon to settlement, causing deforestation rates to increase. During the 1990s and early 2000s, more than 25,000 square kilometres of rainforest per year were cleared out. Throughout these years, roads have provided the means to penetrate the forest and eliminate large chunks of it. In an unpublished study of the Brazilian Amazon, researcher Christopher Barber found that 95% of deforestation in the region occurs within 7 kilometres of a road. Once construction begins, road crews are quickly followed by land speculators, loggers, farmers, ranchers, gold miners and others who carve away the forest along the route. This creates great treeless expanses in the landscape, but research is now showing that the building of roads also triggers environmental changes in the remaining forest that can dry out trees, set the stage for wildfires, and weaken the ecosystem.
    One can conclude from the passage that the author mainly —-.
    1.   ?    underlines the reasons why the Brazilian Amazon suffers more than the other parts of the forest
    2.   ?    informs the reader on the effects building a road through the forest has on the local ecosystem
    3.   ?    criticises people contributing to the deforestation process with their work
    4.   ?    wants to warn the Brazillian state against the future consequences of their project of Trans-Amazonian Highway
    5.   ?    tries to point that the environmental effects of building roads are confused with the ones caused by humans
  75. There are more than 600 ethnic or tribal groups in Africa, and only 53 countries. Many of today’s national boundaries were created in the late 19th century by colonial rulers. —- As a result, tribes are often split between different countries. The Ewe people, for example, are divided between Ghana and Togo. After independence, it has often proved difficult to create unity among the different peoples in one country.
    1.   ?    The most heavily urbanized region in Africa is northern Africa, and Cairo, in Egypt, is the largest city on the continent.
    2.   ?    Borders sometimes follow natural features, such as rivers, but often they just follow straight lines on a map.
    3.   ?    Africa is home to about 849 million people – more than one in eight of the world’s population.
    4.   ?    The war between the Hutu and Tutsi peoples has forced thousands of people to leave their homes.
    5.   ?    Also, groups of nomadic people, who tend to roam together across many countries, are found throughout western Africa.
  76. Water makes up 60 per cent of our bodies and 75 per cent of our brains, but there are still plenty of misconceptions and myths in the public about how it relates to our health.

    2.   ?    Her ne kadar su vücudumuzun yüzde 60’ını ve beynimizin yüzde 75’ini oluştursa da, sağlığımızla ilişkisi açısından halk arasında hâlâ birçok yanlış kanı ve efsane vardır.
    3.   ?    Suyun halk arasında sağlığımızla nasıl ilişkili olduğu hakkında hâlâ birçok yanlış kanıya ve efsaneye sebep olması, vücudumuzun yüzde 60’ını ve beynimizin yüzde 75’ini oluşturmasından kaynaklanmaktadır.

  78. For centuries, the world’s physicists, writers and philosophers have argued about whether time travel is possible, with most coming to the conclusion that it is never going to happen. But on a large plot of land just outside the small town of Comfort, Texas, a group of architects, engineers and scientists are building a ‘Timeship’ that they say it could transport tens of thousands of individuals to a far-distant future. Their approach does not involve the use of flux capacitors, or zooming at light-speed through black holes. Instead, the Timeship aims to store people at such low temperatures that their bodies are preserved for a future civilisation to reanimate them, a concept known as cryonics. “Just as a spaceship allows people to move through space, our Timeship will allow people to travel to another time in the future,” explains Stephen Valentine, who is the director and principal architect of the Timeship project.
    According to the group of architects, engineers and scientists in Texas, —-.
    1.   ?    it will soon be possible to transport more than 10,000 people to a far-distant future
    2.   ?    their ‘Timeship’ will have the capacity of at most 10,000 people
    3.   ?    time travel is not likely to take place until a far-distant future
    4.   ?    it is possible that the bodies of people are preserved with almost no changes
    5.   ?    the city is not really suitable for the ‘Timeship’ because it is such a small place
  79. The panda has become an international symbol for conservation since 1990, winning the public’s affection —- their distinctive black and white markings and clumsy behaviour.

    According to the passage, the Timeship —-.
    1.   ?    will be able to travel through space, but will avoid black holes through the use of the most modern technology available
    2.   ?    is constructed in much the same way as a spaceship, but rather than travelling through space it will simply be used to freeze people
    3.   ?    is designed using the latest technology in order to reach light-speed efficiently while travelling through time
    4.   ?    will not really move, but rather will show passengers a simulation of what the far-distant future might look like
    5.   ?    will house people who have been frozen until some time in the future, thus having time-travelled
