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

Traveling in the Future

These days, if you want to travel from New York to Beijing, the flight takes about 16 hours. You also have to wait at the airport, and sometimes you have to transfer onto a different airplane. If you add all of that extra time, the trip takes at least 20 hours. But in the future, the trip from New York to Beijing might only take two hours.

Right now, a private company is developing something called ET3. ET3 stands for “evacuated tube transport technology”. Here is how it works. A tube goes all the way from New York to Beijing. The tube is only a few meters wide. Capsules move through the tube. Six people can sit in one capsule. The capsules use electricity instead of gasoline. For international travel, the capsules can travel at about 6,500 kilometers per hour. That is much faster than airplane - most modern airplanes usually only fly at about 800 kilometers per hour.

So how is this possible? How can these capsules travel so fast? The answer is that there is no air inside the tube. When airplanes fly, they have to move through the air. The air slows the airplanes down. Because there is no air in the ET3 tubes, the capsules are able to move at a very high speed. Besides, the capsules are quite light. They only weigh 183 kilograms.

There are other advantages to ET3. Because it uses electricity, it is quite clean. In addition, it is much quieter than airplanes and cars. Finally, ET3 tubes and capsules don’t require very much building material.

Of course, ET3 doesn’t exist yet. The technology is still being developed. Developers still have to solve a lot of problems. The biggest problem is that right now, ET3 would be far too expensive. In order to make ET3 cheaper, we will need much better technology.

It is exciting to think of how ET3 will change travel in the future. Maybe someday, you will be able to have lunch in New York and dinner in Beijing.

Which of the following is NOT true about travelling at present?

  • A. Modem planes fly at about 800 kilometers per hour.
  • B. We use mostly gasoline for transportation.
  • C. Flights make little noise thanks to modern technology.
  • D. Traveling takes place in the air.

Why is ET3 clean?

  • It is made of a clean kind of material.
  • It uses a cleaner kind of gasoline.
  • It doesn't use gasoline or electricity.
  • It uses electricity.

The word "works" in paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to _________.

  • travels
  • operates
  • earns money
  • succeeds

All of the following are factors that make ET3 travel fast EXCEPT that _________.

  • A. there is no air inside the tube
  • B. the capsule is quite light
  • C. building material was discovered by accident
  • D. there is nearly no friction during the trip

What is a problem with ET3?

  • Right now it is too expensive.
  • We don't know what the best building material is.
  • It is far too loud.
  • Most people in Beijing don't want to use ET3.

According to the passage, which statement is true?

  • People are already using ET3 to travel.
  • There is no air in ET3 tubes.
  • ET3 capsules might travel at 650,000 kilometers per hour.
  • Right now, a flight from New York to Beijing takes about six hours.

What can be inferred from the passage?

  • There is still a lot to do before putting ET3 into operation.
  • All flights have to transfer at different cities.
  • ET3 will be used domestically.
  • Electricity used as a source of energy makes a capsule much quieter.

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

Movies for the Blind

When you think of the cinema, the phrase ‘watching a movie’ probably comes to mind, and, indeed, moviemakers work very hard to make their films interesting visually. They may use elaborate costumes, beautiful locations, or amazing special effects to tell a story. An actor’s expression or movements can also sometimes say more than words.

But what about people who are blind or have trouble seeing? Movies also contain dialogue, music, and sound effects - things that people don’t need to see in order to enjoy. Movie reviewer Marty Klein, who is blind, created a website called Blindspots to help people choose movies that they can follow without the help of someone explaining what is happening on the screen. He gave a rating, from 1 to 10, based on several things. A movie received a high rating if it has only a few main characters whose voices are easy to recognize. Klein also liked interesting stories without many changes in time and place. A large amount of dialogue between the characters was better than long silences or noisy action scenes. His reviews are still online, but the site is no longer updated.

Another blind movie reviewer, Jay Forry, maintains the website Blindsite Reviews. He also writes for newspapers and is a guest on radio shows. Forry gives movies one of five ratings, including, “So good, blind people like it” and “I’m glad I couldn’t see it.” Forry became a writer after going blind at the age of 28, and his writing skills and sense of humour are what keep people reading his reviews or listening to him on the radio. After “watching” the animated movie Up, Forry commented that he wished he, too, could have a talking dog to tell him to watch out for cars and not to “go into the ladies’ restroom again.”

Sometimes, though, it’s nice to go to the movie without reading reviews and knowing what to expect. Some movie theaters have begun to offer recorded audio descriptions of the movements, scenery, and special effects so that blind moviegoers can follow what other audience members see on the screen. They usually receive a wireless headset to wear during the movie. This allows them to listen to the narration while still hearing the hearing’s music and other sounds that surround them in the theater. Jay Forry also notes that modern theaters now have excellent sound systems, something he appreciates more than the average moviegoer.

In the end, going to the movies should be a fun and exciting experience - for both the sighted and the blind.

What is the main idea of the article?

  • A. Jay Forry writes movie reviews for blind people.
  • B. Blind people have resources to help them enjoy movies.
  • C. Some movie reviews are written specifically for blind people.
  • D. Blind people do not enjoy going to movies.

Which movie would probably receive the best rating from Marty Klein?

  • a foreign martial arts film with many fight scenes.
  • a drama that often shifts between the past and the present.
  • a romantic comedy with four main characters and lots of conversation.
  • a space adventure with many explosion and special effects.

Movie reviewer Jay Forry has his own ___________.

  • website
  • newspaper
  • radio show
  • movie theater

What is Jay Forry most likely to say about a movie he dislikes?

  • He wishes it hadn't been made.
  • It might have been good if he could see.
  • He is happy he is blind.
  • Other blind people might like it.

Why does the author include this quotation: "go into the ladies' restroom again"?

  • to recommend the movie "Up" to readers.
  • to compare Forry to the dog in the movie "Up".
  • to illustrate Forry's sense of humour.
  • to demonstrate Forry's need for help.

To help blind people, some theaters __________.

  • offer special headsets that play a recorded description of the movie
  • hold events for blind people to see movies together
  • give a discount on movie tickets to blind people
  • provide people to sit next to blind people and describe the movie

The word "them" in paragraph 4 refers to ___________.

  • the sighted moviegoers
  • the blind moviegoers
  • all the moviegoers
  • the moviemakers

What does the phrase "something he appreciates more than the average moviegoer" mean?

  • Jay Forry is a better movie critic than most people in the audience.
  • Jay Forry needs to test if wireless headsets help blind people.
  • Jay Forry needs to pay attention to sound so he can write a movie review.
  • Jay Forry pays more attention to sound.
