Section 4

For questions 16 to 18, choose the best options based on the following quotation from the story named The Best Years of Our Lives.

Maintaining such a high average takes a lot of studying, so Rachel has had to give up many things - the first being sleep. Doctors tell us that teenagers need a lot of sleep each night - eight or nine hours, at least. In contrast, Rachel and most of her friends are squeaking by on about five. Rachel's day starts at 6:30 am. After a quick breakfast and a shower, she has a half-hour commute to school. Though school starts at 8:45, Rachel is there by 8:00 every morning for a little extra study time. Sometimes she has to finish homework that she fell asleep doing the night before. Sometimes there is a test or a quiz that she is desperate to do well on.

Rachel's six hours of classes go by in a blur. To her, one of the worst side effects of senior's panic is that she can no longer really enjoy any of her classes. For example, she has always loved English class. However, this year it has been torture for her; Rachel's English teacher is anotoriously hard marker and reluctant to give anybody more than 90 percent. Rachel has been unable to enjoy any of the novels or plays the class has studied this year - she is too obsessed with that two percent.

16 The word "us" refers to __________.
17 The "at least" means that __________.
18 How often does Rachel's English teacher give a mark of 95 percent?

Section 5

For questions 19 to 20, choose the best options based on the quotation from the story named Plagiarism.

Barrie's software compares students' papers to material found on the internet, as well as to a large number of literary and other print resources. Turnitin.com works something like this: a university or other institution will sign up for the service. Instructors will tell their students that instead of turning in their essay by hand, they should email them to Turnitin.com. The service will scan each essay to determine if any part of it has been plagiarized. If it has, the instructor will be notified, and the student will usually be punished. If the paper hasn't been plagiarized, the instructor will simply mark it as usual.

19 The word "them" refers to __________.
20 According to what is stated and/or implied in the passage, which of the following does NOT happen if a student is caught plagiarizing?

Section 6

Answer questions 21 to 30 based on what is stated or implied in the passage.

Norway is the latest country to ban smoking from all indoor public places, including offices, restaurants, and pubs. Outdoor smoking is still allowed across the country, including on the island of Svalbard in the very far north of the country, where summer temperatures rarely rise above freezing. Up until recently, this was one of the northernmost places in the world to enjoy a beer and a cigarette at the local pub.

Now, however, the smokers of Svalbard will either have to indulge their habit at home, or stand outside their local pub in sub-zero temperatures whenever they get a craving for a cigarette. The law, which is intended to protect people from harmful second-hand smoke fumes, does little to protect smokers from the harsh climate.

To make matters worse, this whole island is a duty-free zone, meaning that customers do not have to pay taxes on goods, such as liquor or tobacco. Cigarettes here cost a fraction of what they do in the rest of Norway. But when winter comes, all of Norway's smokers will face the same dilemma: break the law, freeze your fingers off, or simply quit.

21 Svalbard is located __________.
22 Where are people in Norway allowed to smoke?
23 The passage does not say it, but we can guess that "northernmost" means __________.
24 According to the passage, summertime in Svalbard is __________.
25 The smoking ban is meant to __________.
26 In paragraph 2, line 1, the word "habit" refers to __________.
27 Cigarettes are __________in __________ than in other parts of __________.
28 The passage implies that second-hand smoke fumes are __________.
29 Why will all Norwegian smokers "face the same dilemma" in wintertime?
30 "This whole island" mentioned in paragraph 3 is __________.
