Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions underneath.
Today's grandparents are joining their grandchildren on social media, but the different generations' online habits couldn't be more different. The over-55s are joining Facebook in increasing numbers, meaning that they will soon be the site's second biggest user group, with 3.5 million users aged 55–64 and 2.9 million over-65s.


Sheila, aged 59, says, “I joined to see what my grandchildren are doing, as my daughter posts videos and photos of them. It's a much better way to see what they're doing than waiting for letters and photos in the post. That's how we did it when I was a child, but I think I'm lucky I get to see so much more of their lives than my grandparents did.”

Ironically, Sheila's grandchildren are less likely to use Facebook themselves. Children under 17 are leaving the site – only 2.2 million users are under 17 – but they're not going far from their smartphones. Chloe, aged 15, even sleeps with her phone. “It's my alarm clock so I have to,” she says. “I look at it before I go to sleep and as soon as I wake up.”

Unlike her grandmother's generation, Chloe's age group is spending so much time on their phones at home that they are missing out on spending time with their friends in real life. Sheila, on the other hand, has made contact with old friends from school she hasn't heard from in forty years. “We use Facebook to arrange to meet all over the country,” she says. “It's changed my social life utterly.

What is the passage mainly about?
  • Digital habits across generations
  • Facebook – a network for teens
  • Digital habits in the old
  • Facebook – the best social network
According to the passage, Sheila uses Facebook to do all of the following EXCEPT ______.
  • to see what her grandchildren are doing
  • to contact her old friends
  • to wait for letters and photos in the post
  • to arrange meetings with her old friends
The word ''they'' in paragraph 1 refers to ______.
  • Facebook users
  • the over-55s
  • the grandchildren
  • teenagers
Children under 17 are missing out on spending time with their friends in real life because ______.
  • they spend so much time working on school assignments
  • they spend so much time in their beds at home
  • they spend so much time on their phones at home
  • they spend so much time at their grandparents’ houses
The word '' utterly '' in paragraph 4 mostly means ______.
  • partly
  • incompletely
  • definitely

Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions underneath.

The Life of a Professional Gamer  

Gordon Hayward has a pretty cool job – he plays basketball for the team Utah Jazz in the American National Basketball Association (NBA). But in his free time, he also works as a professional gamer, competing in StarCraft 2 tournaments. Even as a top-level athlete, Gordon is impressed with the amount of commitment needed for these competitions. “These guys are professionals”, he says. “They play this game for their job, so they take this as seriously as I take playing basketball for a living.”

Competitive gaming has been around for almost as long as video games themselves, but it’s only recently that people have started earning money from it. This is because companies sponsor gamers and tournaments. The gaming industry is now worth about $6 billion, and it is growing every year. Michel Masquelier, President of IMG Media (one of the world’s largest entertainment companies), called gaming the number one activity in the world for men aged 18 to 24. Just as young people aspire to play in the NBA, many also dream of becoming professional gamers.

There are now big global tournaments like World Cyber Games and Major League Gaming Championships, where hundreds of gamers come to compete in popular games like StarCraft, WarCraft, Counterstrike, and the football game FIFA in front of an audience. The prize money in a tournament can reach a few million dollars.

One thing gamers and athletes have in common is that they often play in teams. These “clans", as gamers call them, usually play tournaments together and practice against one another. Professional gamers and their clans earn money through sponsorships, winning tournaments, and teaching and training people to play video games better.

Like athletes, gamers must train long and hard to become the best at the games that they play. Most gamers only compete one game, the same way that most professional athletes only play one sport. Adrian Kwong, a professional gamer, says that he usually practices StarCraft 2 for more than three hours a day. Some days he even plays for more than five hours. “To become a pro player, it takes determination, skill, and extensive practice,” says Katie Goldberg, who is vice-president of communications at Major’s League Gaming.

Gordon Hayward isn’t going to give up his basketball career anytime soon, but he says that athletes and gamers are not that different: “You have to train hard if you want to be the best, and that goes for everything, not just basketball. That also goes for video games like StarCraft”.

What best describes the main idea of the passage?

  • While popular, video game sports are not real sports.
  • Professional gamers earn as much as athletes.
  • Professional gamers train and compete like athletes.
  • More athletes are playing video games than ever before.

Why does the writer say in paragraph 1 that Gordon is impressed “even as a top-level athlete”?

  • Athletes are used to training long and hard.
  • Athletes generally don’t like playing video games.
  • Athletes don’t have time to play video games.
  • Athletes enter lots of competitions as well.

Why does the passage say gamers have recently started earning money?

  • Competitive gaming is very new.
  • Gamers now work for video games companies.
  • Young people pay to watch their favorite gamers.
  • Companies now sponsor gamers and competitions.

What is a “clan”?

  • a club for fans of games
  • a team of gamers
  • a person who is new to gaming
  • a gamer who no longer competes

Which is true about gaming tournaments?

  • Only the top gamers compete.
  • Gamers play from their homes.
  • Winners receive trophies, but not money.
  • Fans watch gamers as they play.

Professional gamers like Adrian Kwong _______.

  • do some physical exercise to help their gaming
  • take part in gaming competitions on their own
  • practice for many hours a day
  • compete in many different games

The word “everything” in the last paragraph refers to _______.

  • any tournament
  • any sport
  • any gamer
  • any game

The purpose of the final paragraph is to show _______.

  • how athletes and gamers are the same
  • how athletes and gamers are different
  • why Gordon Hayward plays video games like Starcraft 2
  • why Gordon Hayward chooses basketball over video games.
