Read the following passage and choose the correct word or phrase that best fits the blanks.

Nowadays people are more aware that wildlife all over the world is in . Many species of animals are threatened, and could easily become  if we do not make an effort to protect them. There are many reasons for this. In some cases animals are hunted for their fur or for other valuable parts of their bodies. Some birds, such as parrots, are caught , and sold as pets. For many animals and birds, the problem is that their habitats-the place where they live-is disappearing. More land is used for farm, for houses and industry, and there are fewer open spaces than there once were. Farmers use powerful chemicals to help them grow better crops, but these chemicals pollute the environment and wildlife. The most successful animals on Earth, human beings, will soon be the only ones  unless we can solve this problem.

Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions.
Although speech is the most advanced form of communication, there are many ways of communicating without using speech. Signals, signs, symbols, and gestures may be found in every known culture. The basic function of signal is to impinge upon the environment in such a way that it attracts attention, as, for example, the dots and dashes of a telegraph circuit. Coded to refer to speech, the potential for communication is very great. Less adaptable to the codification of words, signs also contain meaning in and of themselves. A stop sign or a barber pole conveys meaning quickly and conveniently.
Symbols are more difficult to describe than either signals or signs because of their intricate relationship with the receiver’s cultural perceptions. In some cultures, applauding in a theater provides performers with an auditory symbol of approval. Gestures such as waving and handshaking also communicate certain cultural messages. 
Although signals, signs, symbols, and gestures are very useful, they do have a major disadvantage in communication. They usually do not allow ideas to be shared without the sender being directly adjacent to the receiver. Without an exchange of ideas, interaction comes to a halt. As a result, means of communication intended to be used for long distances and extended periods must be based upon speech. To radio, television, and the telephone, one must add fax, paging systems, electronic mail, and the Internet, and no one doubts but that there are more means of communication on the horizon.

Which of the following would be the best title for the passage?
  • Gestures
  • Signs and signals
  • Speech
  • Communication
According to this passage, what is a signal?
  • A form of communication that interrupts the environment.
  • The most difficult form of communication to describe.
  • A form of communication which may be used across long distances.
  • The form of communication most related to cultural perception.
The word “it” in paragraph 1 refers to ____________.
  • way
  • environment
  • function
  • signal
The word “intricate” in paragraph 2 could best be replaced by ___________.
  • inefficient
  • complicated
  • historical
  • uncertain
Applauding was cited as an example of ____________.
  • a signal
  • a sign
  • a gesture
  • a symbol
Why were the telephone, radio, and television invented?
  • Because people were unable to understand signs, signals, and symbols.
  • Because people believed that signs, signals, and symbols were obsolete.
  • Because people wanted to communicate across long distances.
  • Because people wanted new forms of communication.
It may be concluded from this passage that ____________.
  • Only some cultures have signs, signals, and symbols.
  • Signs, signals, symbols, and gestures are forms of communication.
  • Symbols are very easy to define and interrupt.
  • Waving and handshaking are not related to culture.

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

Smallpox was the first widespread disease to be eliminated by human intervention. Known as a highly contagious viral disease, it broke out in Europe, causing the deaths of millions of people until the vaccination was invented by Edward Jenner around 1800. In many nations, it was a terror, a fatal disease until very recently. Its victims suffer high fever, vomiting and painful, itchy, pustules that left scars. In villages and cities all over the world, people were worried about suffering from smallpox.

In May 1966, the World Health Organization (WHO), an agency of the United Nations was authorized to initiate a global campaign to eradicate smallpox. The goal was to eliminate the disease in one decade. At the time, the disease posed a serious threat to people in more than thirty nations. Because similar projects for malaria and yellow fever had failed, few believed that smallpox could actually be eradicated but eleven years after the initial organization of the campaign, no cases were reported in the field. The strategy was not only to provide mass vaccinations but also to isolate patients with active smallpox in order to contain the spread of the disease and to break the chain of human transmission. Rewards for reporting smallpox assisted in motivating the public to aid health workers. One by one, each small-pox victim was sought out, removed from contact with others and treated. At the same time, the entire village where the victim had lived was vaccinated.

By April of 1978 WHO officials announced that they had isolated the last known case of the disease but health workers continued to search for new cases for additional years to be completely sure. In May 1980, a formal statement was made to the global community. Today smallpox is no longer a threat to humanity. Routine vaccinations have been stopped worldwide.
