Dear Mr. and Mrs. Ahmad,
I was so upset to hear about your daughter’s accident. You might not remember me, but I knew Sarah last year at camp. She and I were to the same cabin.
        I can’t believe she’s dead. I was looking forward to seeing her again this summer. We had a lot of fun together last year – both of us hated archery and I don’t think either of us ever hit the target, but we laughed about it a lot. She was a really nice person, and she was the only one in our cabin who learned to do the butterfly stroke the right way in swimming.
        I’ll miss her a lot this summer at camp, and I’m sure all her friends and her family will miss her very much. I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am that it happened.

Sincerely yours,

Ann Mary

The following text is for questions 24 to 26.
Jack and mother became very rich. They had a hen that laid golden eggs and a golden harp that played the most wonderful music. They lived in a big house on the edge of the wood and had many servants. But Jack and his mother became greedy and very mean.
            One day an old woman came to the door. ‘Would you like to buy some beans?’ she asked Jack.
            ‘Yes, but I will only give you a penny,’ Jack answered.
            The old woman was so poor that she accepted the penny and went away. Jack told one of the servants to plant the beans and water tem.
            In no time at all, the beanstalks grew so tall that they touched the clouds. Jack climbed up the tallest beanstalks and found himself back at the giant’s land. Ahead of him was the big castle. He knocked on the door but there was no answer, so he went inside.
            The floor and walls were covered with jewels and gold coins. Soon he filled his pockets with the jewels and money, and was just about to run away when he heard loud footsteps. Suddenly he found himself in a giant fist. It was the fist of the same giant he met in his previous adventure. There was no way for Jack to escape.
            ‘Fee fi fo fum, I’m so glad you’ve come. Be you alive or be you dead, you’ll be my slave or off your head!’
            So Jack became the giant’s slave. He cooked, washed and cleaned the castle. He had to do everything the giant asked. Jack was very unhappy and begged to go home but, alas, he was made to stay on at the castle.

BOC to Build New Scottish Oil Terminal
The British Oil Corporation announced yesterday its intention to construct a new deep water oil terminal in Loch Kyle on the west coast of Scotland which will be large enough to take the new 500,000 ton super tankers. At the same time it plans to lay a pipeline to connect the new terminal with the oil refinery at Howeskirk on the east coast.
When the BOC were asked why they needed a new terminal, a spokesperson said, ‘It is essential if we are meet Britain’s requirements for imported oil in the 1900s. If we don’t build it, we cannot supply the necessary oil-it’s as simple as that. There are few sites around Britain which are deep enough to accept these new ships. It has to be Loch Kyle, otherwise they’ll have to unload on the Continent and transfer the oil onto smaller tankers. And it’s not far from Howeskirk which must expand its refinery or it’ll lose its place in the world petro-chemical industry. If that happens, then large scale unemployment in this region, which is already economical depressed, is inevitable. Obviously, the tankers have to unload their cargo quickly and storage tanks at Crannog are the only answer. And we must accept that roads and a heliport will have to be build, otherwise communication will be very difficult.’
Asked whether BOC was concerned about the disruption to the village of Crannog and the damage to the environment, the spokesperson replied, ‘Inevitably we’ll meet some local opposition and probably some resistance from conversation groups, but we’re hoping that people will understand why this new terminal is necessary. It will create about 900 jobs, most of which will be in Crannog. It is really in the interest of the country as a whole.’

I Saw a UFO
When I was out walking my dog in Parson’s Field last night, I heard a loud metallic sound like a steel drum being cut up by a chainsaw. When I looked up, I saw gigantic spaceship landing in the woods to my right. It was circular and flat like a flying saucer. Lots of tiny blue balls of light like electricity were being fired out of it in all directions. One of the lights came straight at me and seemed to pass right through at me. I felt a tingling sensation from head to foot, but the sensation passed in a few seconds
By now the ship had landed behind the trees and all I could see was a faint yellow glow. I intended to run while I had the chance, but I seemed to have no control over my body. To my horror, my legs began to carry me towards the spaceship. I tried to resist, but it was hopeless.
As I entered the clearing where the alien craft had landed, I was caught in a strong beam of white light that actually lifted me off the ground. I was held in mid-air for several seconds, and I felt that I was being examined inside and out. Suddenly the beam was switched off and I fell to the damp ground. I was slightly stunned, but now I could see the spaceship properly. It surface was completely smooth. There were no openings, and I could not make out where the lights had been beamed from. However, the whole ship was glowing yellow.
Although I was still scared I was able to control my movements at last. I turned and saw the spaceship rise and disappear into the night sky. This encounter was undoubtedly the strangest experience of my life!

29What was the writer’s strangest experience?
     A. Moving the spaceship.
     B. Cleaning the alien craft.
     C. Seeing the spaceship properly.

A.        The writer saw a faint yellow glow.
B.        The ship had landed behind the trees.
C.        The ship attracted the writer to come in.
D.        The writer intended to run but he could not.
E.         The writer tried to figure out what happened.

The following text is for questions 31 and 32.
A geyser is the result of underground water under the combined conditions of high temperatures and increased pressure beneath the surface of the earth. Since temperature rises approximately 1oF for every sixty feet under the earth’s surface, and pressure increases with depth, water that seeps down in cracks and fissures until it reaches very hot rocks in the earth’s interior becomes heated to a temperature in excess of 290oF. Because of the greater pressure, it shoots out of the surface in the form of steam and hot water. The result is a geyser.
            In order to function, then, a geyser must have a source of heat, a reservoir where water can be stored until the temperature rises to an unstable point, an opening through which the hot water and steam can escape, and underground channels for resupplying water after an eruption.
            Favourable conditions for geysers exist in regions of geologically recent volcanic activity, especially in areas of more than average precipitation.
            For the most part, geysers are located in three regions of the world: New Zealand, Iceland, and the Yellowstone National Par area of the United States. The most famous geyser in the world is Old Faithful in Yellowstone Par. Old Faithful erupts almost every hour, rising to a height of 125 to 170 feet and expelling more than ten thousand gallons during each eruption.

31. What is the text mainly concerned?
      A. The ratio of temperature to pressure in underground water.
      B. The Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone National Park.
      C. Regions of geologically recent volcanic activity.
      D. Famous geysers in the world.
      E. How geysers are formal.
32. Which condition does a geyser require to function?
      A. A source of heat, a place for water, an opening, and underground channels.
      B. Volcanic activity, underground channels, and steam.
      C. An active volcano nearby and a water reservoir.
      D. Channels in the earth and heavy rainfall.
      E. The condition of the highest temperature.

The following text is for questions 35 to 37.
Why is the World’s Population so Unevenly Distributed?
Population distribution refers to the way in which people are spread out over a land area.      The world’s population is not evenly spread out. Why do you think this is so? There are two main factors that influence population distribution:
a.    The physical condition of the place, and
b.    The level of technology of the people. This refers to the knowledge, skills and tools that the people have.
People tend to settle in areas where the soil is fertile and the climate not too harsh.     That is why river deltas, such as the Nile Delta in Egypt, are densely populated. There are fewer people living in hilly areas and areas with harsh climate because the extreme physical conditions make living and farming very difficult.
However, it is possible for people to survive under unfavourable living conditions. With improvements in technology, places which were previously thought to be unsuitable for living can become suitable for people. For example, an area with no water sources nearby can be habitable by bringing in water from elsewhere. An extremely dry and hot area, such Arizona, can be made more comfortable by having buildings fitted with air-conditioners. Farming may be difficult in a place without fertile land and adequate rainfall, but if the people earn their living by other means and not agriculture, the place will still be populated.

35. What does the text talk about?
A.        The population distribution.
B.        The physical condition of the place.
C.        The level of technology of the people.
D.        The distribution of the world’s population.
E.         The main factor of the population distribution.

36.  The Nile Delta in Egypt is densely populated, because ….
A.        it has extreme physical conditions
B.        the areas are hilly with harsh climate
C.        it makes living and farming very difficult
D.        it is possible for people to survive in that delta
E.         the soil is fertile and the climate is not too harsh

37.  What is the purpose of the text?
          A. To explain the distribution of the world’s population.
          B. To report the distribution of the population.
          C. To describe the world’s population.
          D. To discuss the world’s population.
          E. To overcome the over population.
