Read the following passage and choose the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the blanks.
It isn’t irrational to fear that you haven’t revised or understood enough of the subject you have studied to a course. It may be true that if you have studied and revised a little of the course you have left yourself at risk of failing to accumulate sufficient marks to pass it. It may be that you will need some luck in the of questions that appear in the exam paper.
, it is irrational to believe that if you haven’t covered the syllabus you are inevitably going to fail the course. Few courses, teachers or students “cover the syllabus” in the sense of paying full and equal attention to all parts of it. Examiners do not expect you to have done so. They accept that there are certain areas you are under-prepared, unclear or uninformed. They want too see you demonstrate what you do understand and what you have prepared.
Even when you are struggling to find enough questions to answer, you will find that many have some kind of link or association with your course content. You will normally find some links which you can up into an answer.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Animation traditionally is done by hand-drawing or painting successive frame of an object, each slightly different than the proceeding frame. In computer animation, although the computer may be the one to draw the different frames, in most cases the artist will draw the beginning and ending frames and the computer will produce the drawings between the first and the last drawing. This is generally referred to as computer-assisted animation, because the computer is more of a helper than an originator.

In full computer animation, complex mathematical formulas are used to produce the final sequences of pictures. These formulas operate on extensive databases of numbers that defines the objects in the pictures as they exist in mathematical space. The database consists of endpoints, and color and intensity information. Highly trained professionals are needed to produce such effects because animation that obtains high degrees of realism involves computer techniques from the three-dimensional transformation, shading, and curvatures.

High-tech computer animation for film involves very expensive computer systems along with special color terminals or frame buffers. The frame buffer is nothing more than a giant image memory for viewing a single frame. It temporarily holds the image for display on the screen.

A camera can be used to film directly from the computer’s display screen, but for the highest quality images possible, expensive film recorders are used. The computer computes the positions and colors for the figures in the picture, and sends this information to the recorder, which captures it on film. Sometimes, however, the images are stored on a large magnetic disk before being sent to the recorder. Once this process is completed, it is replaced for the next frame. When the entire sequence has been recorded on the film, the film must be developed before the animation can be viewed. If the entire sequence does not seem right, the motions must be corrected, recomputed, redisplayed, and recorded. This approach can be very expensive and time-consuming. Often, computer-animation companies first do motion tests with simple computer-generated line drawings before selling their computers to the task of calculating the high-resolution, realistic-looking images.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Since its foundation, the city of Venice has sunk deeper and deeper into the muddy lagoon bed. Its inhabitants reacted to this by simply piling one floor on top of the other just to keep the level. Up to six floors per house can be found today. Unfortunately, the situation has deteriorated dramatically since the 1930s. In less than 30 years, Venice sank more than it did before during two centuries. Although the reasons are complex, there is one cause in common: human beings. First, the industry of Mestre and Marghera used the groundwater of the lagoon, leading to a rapid sinking of the city. Second, chlorine and nitrogen wastes as well as wastewater from the major cities have attacked the petrified oak trees and slowly dissolved them. Global warming also causes more and more flooding, which is a further burden for the city.
Up to now, there have been numerous projects for the protection of the lagoon, which are more or less effective. The GENESIS (gigantic electronic control dams at the entrance to the lagoon) project will regulate flooding in the city in the future, while other conservation projects have tried to eliminate industry in the lagoon – with limited success so far. To make matters worse, the population of Venice is shrinking. More and more Venetians are moving to Mestre. Venice is increasingly left to the tourists and greedy traders, but whether it is beneficial to the preservation of Venice remains to be seen.

What is the passage mainly about?

  • The city of Venice
  • Reasons for Venice’s sinking
  • Conservation projects for Venice
  • The foundation of Venice

According to the passage, all of the following are the reasons to the rapid sinking of the city EXCEPT ______.

  • the use of the lagoon’s groundwater
  • six-floor houses
  • global warming
  • chlorine and nitrogen wastes as well as wastewater

The word ''them'' in paragraph 3 refers to ______.

  • the major cities
  • the petrified oak trees
  • Venice city
  • the houses in Venic

The GENESIS project ______.

  • copes with the groundwater for the industry of Mestre and Marghera
  • copes with wastewater from major cities
  • copes with flooding in the city
  • copes with global warming

The word “shrinking” in paragraph 4 mostly means ______.

  • becoming smaller
  • becoming older
  • becoming younger
  • becoming bigger
