    Read the following passage and choose the best option for each of the blanks.

    Adult Learners

    Adult learners have many characteristics that distinguish them from school or college learners. Firstly, they come to courses with experiences and knowledge in diverse areas. They often prefer learning activities that enable them to draw on the skills and experience they have acquired. In the main, adults have realistic aims and have valuable into what is likely to be successful. , they are readily able to relate new facts to past experiences and enjoy having their talents explored in learning situations. Adults have established opinions and beliefs, have been formed over time through their experience of families, work, community, or politics. 

    A majority of adults also have motivation and their effort increases because of their desire to learn. They are also motivated by the relevance of the material to be addressed and learn better when the material is related to their own needs and interests. 

    (Adapted from “Complete Advanced” by Guy Brook-Hart and Simon Haines) 

    Read the text and choose the best answer for each question below.

    Cell phones are an integrated part of our society at this point, and their main use is communication. They keep students in touch with the rest of the world by giving them the power to interact with it. In my day, if you forgot your lunch, you were at the mercy of the office calling home for you. Now, students have the ability to solve their own problems and handle certain "emergencies" on their own.

    Cell phones also allow students the ability when the time is right, to keep in touch with students at other schools or friends that don't go to school. While not an educational benefit directly, better relationships can lead to higher self-esteem and reduce isolation, which is good for everybody. In the same way, camera phones allow students to capture the kinds of memories that help build a solid school culture, and, in some cases, can act as documentation of misbehavior in the same way that store cameras provide evidence and deter bad behavior.

    Academically, the cell phone can act as to record video of a procedure of explanation that may need to be reviewed later. It could be used to record audio of a lecture, as well, for later review. And just imagine if class could be easily "taped" for students who are absent? What if they could even be streamed and seen from home instantly?

    What does the passage mainly discuss?

    • the benefits of the electronic device in communication
    • how to use the electronic device in classrooms
    • the development of the electronic device
    • how the electronic device change our education

    The word "taped" in paragraph 3 is closet in meaning to _____.

    • streamed
    • reviewed
    • recorded
    • seen

    In paragraph 1, the word "it" refers to ______.

    • the main use
    • the student
    • the rest of the world
    • the office

    According to the passage, cell phones do NOT ____.

    • help students keep in touch with their friends
    • allow students to capture of memories
    • help students record audio of a lecture
    • enable students to write their assignments

    According to the text, things that are recorded by camera phones can be used as _____.

    • proof
    • a reward
    • homework
    • a test

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

    Astronomers have long used direct photography to gather a large of information from telescopes. To do this, they have special light-sensitive coatings on glass plates, whose size depends on the type of telescope employed. Certain wide-field telescopes commonly required very large glass plates. These plates do not bend, can be measured accurately, and can preserve information over a long period of time, providing a record that an astronomer at a later time can examine. However, even though long time exposures increase the amount of light striking the plate so that very faint objects in the sky eventually show up clearly, even the most sensitive plates convert only a small percent of the photons striking them into an image. For this reason, photography cannot make very efficient use of short-time exposures on a telescope. Despite this inefficiency, photography is still very useful because it works as a two-dimensional detector covering a large area at a telescope's focus. Hence, the information contained in a single photograph can be enormous, especially when the photograph is taken with wide-field telescopes.

    Today, the technology of newer radio and X-ray telescopes has allowed astronomers to view images otherwise invisible to the eye, and direct photography is now used less often to gather images. Today's astronomers can study an enhanced view of a telescope's focus on a television monitor, and in most cases, the data can later be converted by a computer into digital form. This procedure, called image processing, plays a central role in astronomy today. Using false colors, the computer can display images of information otherwise undetectable to the unaided eye. These colors are false in the sense that they are not the actual colors of the object in the visual range of the spectrum. Rather, they are codes to a specific property, such as the X-ray emissions from stars.

    What is the main topic of the passage?

    • The use of wide-field telescopes in astronomy
    • The use of false colors in image processing
    • New astronomical theories
    • Methods used by astronomers to gather information

    The word "employed" in paragraph 1 could be best replaced by _____.

    • measured
    • inspected
    • used
    • purchased

    According to paragraph 1, which of the following is NOT mentioned as an advantage of glass-plate photographs?

    • They can be measured accurately.
    • They can capture the images of faint objects.
    • They can be processed quickly.
    • They can be preserved for a long time.

    The word "efficient" in paragraph 1 could be best replaced by _____.

    • visible
    • objective
    • productive
    • telescope

    According to paragraph 2, astronomers most probably use direct photography less often today than in the past because _____.

    • photographic data deteriorates quickly
    • the technology of newer radio and X-ray telescopes has been developed
    • glass plates no longer available
    • only a small amount of information is contained in a single photograph

    Why do computer-generated images use false colors?

    • The properties represented in the image are not otherwise visible.
    • The colors are used to convert black-and-white photographs.
    • The computer screens have a limited range of colors.
    • The real objects are too bright to look at.

    What does pronoun "it" in paragraph 1 refer to?

    • detector
    • telescope
    • photography
    • inefficiency
