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

Accustomed though we are to speaking of the films made before 1927 as "silent", the film has never been, in the full sense of the word, silent. From the very beginning, music was regarded as an indispensable accompaniment; when the Lumiere films were shown at the first public film exhibition in the United States in February 1896, they were accompanied by piano improvisations on popular tunes. At first, the music played bore no special relationship to the films; an accompaniment of any kind was sufficient. Within a very short time, however, the incongruity of playing live music to a solemn film became apparent, and film pianists began to take some care in matching their pieces to the mood of the film.

As movie theaters grew in number and importance, a violinist, and perhaps a cellist, would be added to the pianist in certain cases, and in the larger movie theaters, small orchestras were formed. For a number of years, the selection of music for each film program rested entirely in the hands of the conductor or leader of the orchestra, and very often the principal qualification for holding such a position was not skill or taste but rather the ownership of a large personal library of musical pieces. Since the conductor seldom saw the films until the night before they were to be shown (if, indeed, the conductor was lucky enough to see them then), the musical arrangement was normally improvised in the greatest hurry.

To help meet this difficulty, film distributing companies started the practice of publishing suggestions for musical accompaniments. In 1909, for example, the Edison Company began issuing with their films such indications of mood as "pleasant', "sad", "lively". The suggestions became more explicit, and so emerged the musical cue sheet containing indications of mood, the titles of suitable pieces of music, and precise directions to show where one piece led into the next. 

Certain films had music specially composed for them. The most famous of these early special scores was composed and arranged for D. W. Griffith's film Birth of a Nation, which was released in 1915.

The passage mainly discusses music that was _____.

  • performed before the showing of a film
  • played during silent films
  • recorded during film exhibitions
  • specifically composed for certain movie theaters

What can be inferred from the passage about the majority of films made after 1927?

  • They were truly "silent"
  • They were accompanied by symphonic orchestras
  • They incorporated the sound of the actors' voices
  • They corresponded to specific musical compositions

It can be inferred that orchestra conductors who worked in movie theaters needed to ____.

  • be able to play many instruments

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

The glass is a remarkable substance made from the simplest raw materials. It can be colored or colorless, monochrome or polychrome, transparent, translucent, or opaque. It is lightweight impermeable to liquids, readily cleaned and reused, durable yet fragile, and often very beautiful. Glass can be decorated in multiple ways and its optical properties are exceptional. In all its myriad forms - as tableware, containers, in architecture and design -glass represents a major achievement in the history of technological developments.

Since the Bronze Age about 3,000 B. C. glass has been used for making various kinds of objects. It was first made from a mixture of silica, line and an alkali such as soda or potash, and these remained the basic ingredients of glass until the development of lead glass in the seventeenth century. When heated, the mixture becomes soft and malleable and can be formed by various techniques into a vast array of shapes and sizes. The homogeneous mass thus formed by melting then cools to create glass, but in contrast to most materials formed in this way (metals, for instance), glass lacks the crystalline structure normally associated with solids and instead retains the random molecular structure of a liquid. In effect, as molten
glass cools, it progressively stiffen s until rigid, but does so without setting up a network of interlocking crystals customarily associated with that process. This is why glass shatters so easily when dealt a blow. Why glass deteriorates over time, especially when exposed to moisture, and why glassware must be slowly reheated and uniformly cooled after manufacture to release internal stresses induced by uneven cooling.
Another unusual feature of glass is the manner in which its viscosity changes as it turns from a cold substance into a hot, ductile liquid. Unlike metals that flow or freeze at specific temperatures glass progressively softens as the temperature rises, going through varying stages of malleability until it flows like a thick syrup. Each stage of malleability allows the glass to be manipulated into various forms, by different techniques, and if suddenly cooled the object retains the shape achieved at that point. Glass is thus amenable to a greater number of heat-forming techniques than most other materials.

Why does the author list the characteristics of glass in paragraph 1?
  • To demonstrate how glass evolved
  • To show the versatility of glass
  • To explain glassmaking technology
  • To explain the purpose of each component of glass
What does the author imply about the raw materials used to make glass?
  • They were the same for centuries
  • They are liquid
  • They are transparent
  • They are very heavy
According to the passage, how is glass that has cooled and become rigid different from most other rigid substances?
  • It has an interlocking crystal network
  • It has an unusually low melting temperature
  • It has varying physical properties
  • It has a random molecular structure

The words "exposed to" in paragraph 2 most likely mean ____.

  • hardened by
  • chilled with
  • subjected to
  • deprived of
What must be done to release the internal stresses that build up in glass products during manufacture?
  • The glass must be reheated and evenly cooled.
  • The glass must be cooled quickly.
  • The glass must be kept moist until cooled.
  • The glass must be shaped to its desired form immediately

The word "it" in paragraph 3 refers to ____.

  • feature
  • glass
  • manner
  • viscosity

According to the passage, why can glass be more easily shaped into specific forms than can metals?

  • It resists breaking when heated
  • It has better optical properties
  • It retains heat while its viscosity changes
  • It gradually becomes softer as its temperature rises

Read the following passage and choose the correct word for each of the blanks.


However objective we believe ourselves to be, most of us do not judge a product solely on its merits, considering quality, value, and style before making a decision. (A)_____, we are easily influenced by the people around us.
There is nothing wrong with this. It is probably a smarter way to make decisions than (B)_____ on only our own opinions. But it does make life hard for companies. They have long understood that groups of friends and relatives tend to buy the same products, but understanding the reasons has been tricky. It is because they are so similar with (C)_____ to how much money they make and what television ads they watch that they independently arrive at the same decision? Or do they copy one another, perhaps (D)_____ envy or perhaps because they have shared information about the products?
Research in Finland recently found overwhelming evidence that neighbors have a big influence on buying decisions. When one of a person’s ten nearest neighbors bought a car, the chances that that person would buy a car of the same brand during the next week and a half (E)_____ by 86 percent. The researchers argued that it was not just a matter of envy. Used cars seemed to attract neighbors even more than new cars. This suggested that people were not trying to keep up with their neighbors, they were keen to learn from them. Since used cars are less reliable, a recommendation of one can strongly influence a buying decision.
