TEXT 1 for question 1-4
Once upon a time there live as neighbors, a bear and a rabbit. The rabbit was a good shot and the bear, being very clumsy, could not use an arrow to a good advantage.
The bear was very unkind to the rabbit. Every morning, the bear would call over to the rabbit and ask the rabbit to take his bow and arrows and come with the bear to the other side of the hill.
The rabbit, fearing to arouse the bear’s anger by refusing, consented, and went with the bear. The rabbit shot enough buffalo to satisfy the bear’s family. Indeed, he shot and killed so many that there was still lots of meat left after the bear and his family had loaded themselves and packed all they could carry home.
However, the bear was so greedy and evil that he didn’t allow the rabbit to get any of the meat. The poor rabbit could not even taste the blood from the butchering, as the bear would throw earth on the bloods and dry it up. The poor rabbit would have to go home hungry after his hard days work.
The bear was the father of five children. The youngest boy was very kind to the rabbit. The youngest bear would take the meat outside and pretend to play ball with it, kicking it toward the rabbit‟s house, and when he got close to the door he would give the meat such a great kick that it would fly into the rabbit‟s house. In this way the poor rabbit would get his meal unknown to the papa bear.

TEXT 5 for questions 31-34
Speech production is made possible by the specialized movements of our vocal organs that generate speech sounds waves.
Like all sound production, speech production requires a source of energy. The source of energy for speech production is the steady stream of air that comes from the lungs, as we exhale. When we breathe normally, the air stream must vibrate rapidly. The vocal cords cause the air stream to vibrate.
As we talk, the vocal cords open and close rapidly, chopping up the steady air stream into a series of puffs. These puffs are heard as a buzz. But this buzz is still not speech.
To produce speech sounds, the vocal tract must change shape. During speech we continually alter the shape of the vocal tract by moving the tongue and lips, etc. These movements change the acoustic properties of the vocal tract which in turn produce the different sounds of speech.
31. The text above is in the form of ….
a. Hortatory exposition

TEXT 8 for question 43-46
The study of genetic is today so far advances that we shall soon be able to produce a kind of genetically perfect „superman” using technique known as „genetic engineering‟. At first this may seem an attractive possibility, but when we consider it in detail, we find there are many problems involved.
A distinction is usually made between „negative‟ and „positive‟ genetic engineering. In negative engineering we try to eliminate harmful genes to produce genetically normal people. The aim is of course a desirable one; however, it does pose the problem of what a harmful gene is. Genes are not really either
„good‟ or „bad‟. The gene which causes certain forms of anemia, for example, can also protect against malaria. If we eliminate this gene, we may get rid of anemia, but we increase the risk of malaria.
In positive genetic engineering we try to create better people by developing the so-called „good‟ genes. But although this form of genetic engineering will give us a greater control over mankind‟s future, there are several reasons for caution. First, there is no possibility of mistakes. While accepting those geneticists are responsible people, we must also admit that things can go wrong, the result being the kind of monster we read about in horror stories. Secondly, there is the problem of deciding what make a „better‟ person. We may feel, for example, that if genetic engineering can create more intelligent people, then this is a good thing. On the other hand, intelligence does not necessarily lead to happiness. Do we really want to create people who are intelligent, but perhaps unhappy.
The basic question is weather or not we should interfere with human life. We can argue that much human
progress (particularly in medicine) involves interference with life. To some extent this is true, but we should not forget the terrible consequences genetic engineering can have. Consider for example the possibilities of genetic warfare, in which our enemies try to harm us using the techniques of genetic engineering.
43. What type of text is used by the writer?
c. Analytical exposition
44. The communicative purpose of the text is to ….
a. Present to points of the view about the study of genetic
b. Critique the availability of the study of genetic
c. Describe the presence of genetic engineering
d. Give a report about the study of genetic
e. Explain the bad possibility of genetic engineering
45. What can we say about the first paragraph?
46. A suitable title for the text is ….
a. The advantage of genetic engineering to Modern Life
b. Negative and Positive Genetic Engineering
c. Genetic Engineering and Genetic Warfare
d. The Study of Advance Genetics
e. Genetic Engineering as a Means of Harms Enemics
TEXT 9 for questions 47-50
Silkworms live for only two or three days after laying eggs. About 36,000 to 50,000 eggs are laid, and these are carefully stored at the silkworm farm until they are ready to hatch. The eggs hatch into caterpillars, which feed on mulberry leaves. Soon, the caterpillars are ready to spin their cocoons. Not all caterpillars can spin silk cocoons. Only the caterpillars of a silkworm moth known as „Bombyx mori‟ can do such spinning.
This caterpillar has special glands which secrete liquid silk through its lower lip. The liquid produced later hardens to form fine strands. The caterpillar makes its cocoons using these strands. The threads on the outside of the cocoon are rough, while those inside are soft and smooth.
Some fully-spun cocoons are heated. This kills the pupa inside. The cocoons are then put into hot water to loosen the fine threads. Finally, these threads are reeled off the cocoons. The length of unbroken thread produced by a single cocoon measures about one and half kilometers. Being twisted together several of these threads make single woven materials.
47. What is the genre of the text?
a. A report
d. A description
b. An explanation
