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

In addition to providing energy, fats have several other functions in the body. The fat-soluble vitamins, A, D, E, and K, are dissolved in fats, as their name implies. Good sources of these vitamins have the high oil or fat content, and the vitamins are stored in the body’s fatty tissues. In the diet, fats cause food to remain longer in the stomach, thus increasing the feeling of fullness for some time after a meal is eaten. Fats add variety, taste, and texture to foods, which accounts for the popularity of fried foods. Fatty deposits in the body have an insulating and protective value. The curves of the human female body are due mostly to strategically located fat deposits.

Whether a certain amount of fat in the diet is essential to human health is not definitely known. When rats are fed a fat-free diet, their growth eventually ceases, their skin becomes inflamed and scaly, and their reproductive systems are damaged. Two fatty acids, linoleic and arachidonic acids, prevent these abnormalities and hence are called essential fatty acids. They also are required by a number of other animals but their roles in human beings are debatable. Most nutritionists consider linoleic fatty acid an essential nutrient for humans.

This passage probably appeared in which of the following?
  • A diet book
  • A book on basic nutrition
  • A cookbook
  • A popular women’s magazine

The phrase “stored in” is closest in meaning to __________.

  • manufactured in
  • attached to
  • measured by
  • accumulated

The author states that fats serve all the following body function EXCEPT to ________.

  • promote a feeling of fullness
  • insulate and protect the body
  • provide energy
  • control weight gain
According to the author of the passage, which of the following is true for rats when they are fed a fat free diet?
  • They stop growing.
  • They have more babies.
  • They lose body hair.
  • They require less care.

Linoleic fatty acid is mentioned in the passage as ______.

  • an essential nutrient for humans
  • more useful than arachidonic acid
  • preventing weight gain in rats
  • a nutrient found in most food

The phrase “these abnormalities” refers to ________.

  • a condition caused by fried food
  • strategically located fat deposits
  • curves on the human female body
  • cessation of growth, bad skin, and damaged reproductive systems

That humans should all have some fat in our diet is _____. 

  • a commonly held view
  • not yet a proven fact
  • only true for women
  • proven to be true by experiments on rats

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

An air pollutant is defined as a compound added directly or indirectly by humans to the atmosphere in such quantities as to affect humans, animals, vegetation, or materials adversely. Air pollution requires a very flexible definition that permits continuous change. When the first air pollution laws were established in England in the fourteenth century, air pollutants were limited to compounds that could be seen or smelled - a far cry from the extensive list of harmful substances known today. As technology has developed and knowledge of the
health aspects of various chemicals has increased, the list of air pollutants has lengthened. In the future, even water vapor might be considered an air pollutant under certain conditions.

Many of the more important air pollutants, such as sulfur oxides, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides, are found in nature. As the Earth developed, the concentration of these pollutants was altered by various chemical reactions; they became components in biogeochemical cycles. These serve as an air purification scheme by allowing the compounds to move from the air to the water or soil. On a global basis, nature's output of these compounds dwarfs that resulting from human activities. 

However, human production usually occurs in a localized area, such as a city. In such a region, the human output may be dominant and may temporarily overload the natural purification scheme of the cycles. The result is an increased concentration of noxious chemicals in the air. The concentrations at which the adverse effects appear will be greater than the concentrations that the pollutants would have in the absence of human activities. The actual concentration need not be large for a substance to be a pollutant; in fact, the numerical value tells us little until we know how much of an increase this represents over the concentration that would occur naturally in the area. For example, sulfur dioxide has detectable health effects at 0.08 parts per million (ppm), which is about 400 times its natural level. Carbon monoxide, however, has a natural level of 0.1 ppm and is not usually a pollutant until its level reaches about 15 ppm.

It can be inferred from the first paragraph that _____.

  • Water vapor is an air pollutant in localized areas.
  • Most air pollutants today can be seen or smelled.
  • The definition of air pollution will continue to change.
  • A substance becomes an air pollutant only in cities.
For which of the following reasons can natural pollutants play an important role in controlling air pollution?
  • They function as part of a purification process.
  • They occur in greater quantities than other pollutants.
  • They are less harmful to living beings than other pollutants.
  • They have existed since the Earth developed.

According to the passage, human-generated air pollution in localized regions _____.

  • can be dwarfed by nature's output of pollutants
  • can overwhelm the natural system that removes pollutants
  • will damage areas outside of the localized regions
  • will react harmfully with natural pollutants

The word “localized” in the third paragraph is closest in meaning to ____.

  • specified
  • circled
  • surrounded
  • encircled

According to the passage, the numerical value of the concentration level of a substance is only useful if ____.

  • the other substances in the area are known
  • it is in a localized area
  • the natural level is also known
  • it can be calculated quickly
Which of the following is best supported by the passage?
  • To effectively control pollution, local government should regularly review their air pollution laws.
  • One of the most important steps in preserving natural lands is to better enforce air pollution laws.
  • Scientists should be consulted in order to establish uniform limits for all air pollutants.
  • Human activities have been effective in reducing air pollution
What does the passage mainly discuss?
  • The economic impact of air pollution.
  • What constitutes an air pollutant.
  • How much harm air pollutants can cause.
  • The effects of compounds added to the atmosphere.
