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

A leading question among anthropologists is: what exactly led to the development of human cities? Basically, modern humans have existed on earth for over 100,000 years. Yet it is only in the last 8,000 years that they have begun to gather in significant numbers and form cities. Prior to that period, humans existed in small family or tribal groups, generally consisting of fewer than 100 individuals. What, then, led humans to make the dramatic shift from living in small groups to living in large, organized cities? It seems that the development of cities required a particular set of circumstances.

First, it required a minimum population density. For much of their early history, humans existed only in small numbers. This is due to the fact that early humans relied on hunting and gathering wild foods for their survival. Even the most fertile land would only support a relatively small number of predators, so it was not until humans began to practice agriculture that they were able to gather in large enough numbers to form cities.

Furthermore, the development of a city could only be possible if a large number of people shared a common language, culture, and religion. Without such unifying factors, a cooperative, peaceful existence among large numbers of people would have been impossible.

Finally, it seems that early humans needed to be faced with a large problem, which one small group of individuals could not solve on its own. Only when large-scale cooperation was needed to overcome a problem would humans come together to form cities.

What is the passage mainly about?
  • Factors bringing about the development of human cities
  • How population density affects the development of human cities
  • Why a shared language makes a peaceful human city
  • Problems solved by the cooperation of a large group

The word "circumstance" in paragraph 1 mostly means _____.

  • conditions
  • preparations
  • examples
  • events

The word "they" in paragraph 2 refers to _____.

  • predators
  • humans
  • cities
  • foods
Which of the following enables people to live together in peace?
  • A large area of fertile land
  • A shared belief and value
  • A large and complicated problem
  • A group with a minimal number of members
Which of the following is NOT needed for the development of a city?
  • a shared culture
  • people's gathering
  • peaceful existence
  • large-scale collaboration

Read the passage and choose the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the numbered blanks.

It can take a long time to become successful in your chosen field, however talented you are. One thing you have to be of is that you will face criticism along the way. The world is full of people who would rather say something negative than positive. If you’ve made up your to achieve a certain goal, such as writing a novel, don't let the negative criticism of others prevent you from reaching your target, and let the constructive criticism have a positive effect on your work. If someone says you’re totally in the of talent, ignore them. That’s negative criticism. If, however, someone advises you to revise your work and gives you a good reason for doing so, you should consider their suggestions carefully. There are many film stars who were once out of work . There are many famous novelists who made a complete mess of their first novel – or who didn’t, but had to keep on approaching hundreds of publishers before they could get it published. Being successful does depend on luck, to a extent. But things are more likely to well if you persevere and stay positive.
