How have terrestrial organisms met the
environmental challenges of living on land? Life
began in the oceans, but many life forms have since
adapted to terrestrial life in a sea of air. Every single
organism living on land has to meet the same
environmental challenges: obtaining enough water;
preventing excessive water loss; getting enough
energy; and in polar regions, tolerating widely varying
temperature extremes. How those challenges are
met varies from one organism to another, and in
large part explains the diversity of life encountered on
land today. Some animals avoid colder temperatures
by migrating to warmer climates for the winter,
whereas others avoid the cold by passing the winter
in a dormant state called hibernation. Many plants
also spend winter in a dormant state. The aerial parts
of some plants die during the winter, but the
underground parts remain alive; the following spring
they resume metabolic activity and develop new
aerial shoots. Many trees are deciduous; that is, they
shed their leaves for the duration of their dormancy.
Shedding leaves is actually an adaptation to the
“dryness” of winter. Roots cannot absorb water from
ground that is cold or frozen; by shedding its leaves
the plant reduces water loss during the cold winter
months when obtaining water from the soil is
impossible.

57. It is pointed out in the passage that all terrestrial
organisms ----.
A) in warm regions find it very hard to tolerate
extreme temperatures
B) in polar regions live out the winter through
hibernation
C) face the danger of extinction due to
environmental challenges
D) have, one way or another, adapted themselves
to environmental conditions
E) are most adversely affected by excessive water
loss and cold temperatures

58. It is pointed out in the passage that the diversity
of life on Earth ----.
A) is far more extensive in temperate climates than
in colder ones
B) results from the variety of ways whereby
organisms meet environmental challenges
C) is related to plants rather than other organisms
D) becomes far more apparent in spring than in
winter
E) must be maintained through the conservation of
the environment

59. One can understand from the passage that, for
deciduous trees, the shedding of leaves ----.
A) increases the amount of water loss, which is a
serious environmental challenge
B) increases their metabolic activity throughout
winter
C) is an effective mechanism of resistance to heat
D) is a regular metabolic activity which is not related
to environmental conditions
E) is a kind of hibernation that enables them to
survive the cold winter months

60. It is clear from the passage that, for some
animals, migration ----.
A) and hibernation are equally viable options
B) is comparatively easy
C) is indispensable for survival
D) causes a great deal of energy loss
E) involves various environmental challenges

Henrik-Jan van Veen has carried out a great deal of
research into spinning. This is especially true for
“graveyard spins”, the term for what happens when
fighter pilots get so disoriented they miscalculate how
to get their plane back on course. They can end up in
a dangerous and often fatal spin. Van Veen works at
a research lab run by the Netherlands Organization
for Applied Scientific Research, the TNO. The range
of research covered by the TNO is vast, and it sees
itself as a practical problem solver. And for the Dutch
air force, the graveyard spin is certainly a problem
that needs solving. Van Veen’s specialty is
“vibrotactile devices”, which use vibrations to convey
information. His latest project is a vest studded all
over with small discs that can each vibrate
independently. In a test room, a pilot is strapped into
a seat in a “cockpit”. At the push of a button, the
lights go out and the chair starts spinning. After a
while the chair is stopped. “He’ll think he’s spinning
the other way now”, says van Veen. The pilot is told
to correct the spin, but instead, he overcorrects
massively, and the chair begins spinning again. In
the next test, the pilot dons van Veen’s vest and is
told that the patch of the vest that is vibrating will
indicate the direction he should force the joystick to
correct a spin. This time, when the chair stops
spinning the pilot manages to keep the seat still. Van
Veen thinks the vibrotactile vest could do more than
save the lives of fighter pilots. He’s now working on
linking the system to a GPS receiver so that tourists
in a foreign city or blind people in an unfamiliar
environment can use the vest to find their way
around.

61. It is clear from the passage that the vibrotactile
vest ----.
A) has contributed significantly to environmental
research

For almost 200 years, the idea of cosmic events
affecting life on Earth was viewed as heretical by the
church, which regarded catastrophe as proof of
divine intervention, and as nonsense by the scientific
establishment, which dismissed it as superstition. Yet
in the end, the sheer weight of evidence has swept
away all doubt about the reality of global
catastrophes. Attempts to make scientific sense of
the many legends of global catastrophes date back to
the dawn of modern science itself, in the 17th century.
Following the publication of Newton’s laws of motion
and universal gravitation in 1687, Edmond Halley
decided to apply them to the mystery of comets. By
studying records of their appearance, Halley argued
that the bright comets of 1456, 1531, 1607 and 1682
were in fact one comet, later known as the “Halley”
comet, that followed a vast elliptical orbit around the
Sun in agreement with Newton’s laws. But Halley
noted something else as well: a comet crossing the
orbit of the Earth might one day collide with us with
devastating consequences.

65. According to the passage, Newton’s laws of
motion and gravitation ----.
A) had no impact whatsoever on the rise of modern
science
B) were approached skeptically by Halley and other
contemporary scientists
C) helped Halley to identify the comet that bears his
name
D) convinced Halley that catastrophes were in fact
acts of divine intervention
E) were dismissed right away by the scientific
establishment of his time

66. It is pointed out in the passage that, prior to the
rise of modern science in the 17th century,----.
A) various studies had been made of comets, but
Halley disregarded them all
B) the way people viewed cosmic events varied
greatly
C) all kinds of learning had been subject to the
approval of the church
D) the Earth had experienced several collisions with
cosmic objects
E) attempts had been made to explain certain
catastrophes with reference to gravitational laws

67. We learn from the passage that in the opinion of
Halley, ----.
A) the mystery surrounding comets could never be
cleared up
B) Newton’s laws of motion and gravitation needed
to be further clarified and elaborated
C) the earlier appearances of the comet “Halley”
had not been properly recorded
D) global catastrophes could be prevented through
new scientific developments
E) a comet may, at some point in the future, strike
Earth

68. It is clear from the passage that, in the past, the
church ----.
A) regarded global catastrophes as acts of God
B) was particularly interested in the movements of
comets
C) consistently banned any research into cosmic
events
D) encouraged scientists to find ways of preventing
global catastrophes
E) wished to suppress all thoughts of cosmic events

Except perhaps for some remote island dwellers,
most people have a natural tendency to view
continents as fundamental, permanent and even
characteristic features of Earth. One easily forgets
that the world’s continental platforms amount only to
scattered and isolated masses on a planet that is
largely covered by water. But when viewed from
space, the correct picture of Earth becomes
immediately clear. It is a blue planet. From this
perspective it seems quite extraordinary that over its
long history, Earth could manage to hold a small
fraction of its surface always above the sea —
enabling, among other things, human evolution to
proceed on dry land. Is the persistence of highstanding
continents just an accident? How did Earth’s
complicated crust come into existence? Has it been
there all the time, like some primeval icing on a
planetary cake, or has it evolved through the ages?
Such questions engendered debates that divided
scientists for many decades, but the fascinating story
of how the terrestrial surface came to take its present
form is now partly resolved. That understanding
shows, remarkably enough, that the conditions
required to form the continents of Earth may be
unmatched in the rest of the solar system.

69. One important point made in the passage is that
----.
A) new questions concerning the solar system are
constantly coming to the fore
B) scientists have finally been able to understand
fully the mystery of Earth’s crust
C) people living on remote islands are so cut off
from the rest of the world that they have no idea
about what is happening elsewhere
D) the formation of the continents of Earth may
have no parallel elsewhere in the solar system
E) the growing pollution of the oceans is causing a
great deal of concern among scientists

70. According to the passage, the question of how
Earth’s continents came into being ----.
A) has never attracted much attention
B) has been one of the concerns of space research
and exploration
C) can best be answered through a comprehensive
study of the other planets in the solar system
D) is not likely to be resolved in the near future
E) gave rise to considerable disagreement among
scientists

71. The passage calls Earth the “blue planet” to
underline the fact that ----.
A) the waters of the oceans are crystal clear
B) the geographical features of Earth are not very
distinct when viewed from space
C) many things on Earth are blue
D) there is actually very little land on Earth
E) it is man’s duty to keep the seas clean

72. The passage suggests that the inhabitants of
small isolated islands ----.
A) will be adversely affected if the oceans continue
to be polluted
B) have frequently chosen to live in comparative
isolation in preference to living in a crowded city
C) always demonstrate a keen interest in the solar
system
D) depend for their living more on the sea than on
the land
E) probably have a better perception of the reality
of Earth than the majority of us

In his preface to Spaceflight Revolution, David
Ashford recalls how he started his research into
rocket motors. As he later explains, these were
motors that would power a space plane — one that
would launch space travellers and satellites cheaply
and reliably into orbit. That was 1961. Ashford admits
he would probably have taken another job if he’d
known that, 42 years later, satellites would still be
launched by rockets descended from ballistic
missiles. The technology is there, but political and
budgetary decisions have so far stopped space
planes getting off the ground. But Ashford presents a
compelling argument that a small orbital space plane
would cost relatively little to design and develop —
the equivalent of just two shuttle flights.

73. As we understand from the passage, Ashford’s
space plane project ----.
A) has made space travel extremely cheap and
reliable
B) has been welcomed by political authorities and
received much attention
C) has received no political or financial support
since the early 1960s
D) has been proved faulty in the course of several
trials
E) was originally inspired by ballistic missile
technology

74. According to the passage, Ashford ----.
A) has not yet completed his research into rocket
motors
B) feels that his decades-long work on rocket
motors has been unjustly ignored
C) has written his book Spaceflight Revolution
mainly to criticize politicians
D) has been recognized as a leading scientist in
space research and rocket technology for quite
some time now
E) has proposed a project which can only be
realized if a sizeable budget is available

75. As can be understood from the passage, Ashford
is firmly convinced that ----.
A) the development of a space plane would cost no
more than two shuttle flights
B) politicians and financial authorities need to be
careful about investing money in space projects
C) rockets bear no relation to ballistic missiles
D) there are many people eager to be space
travellers and willing and able to pay a
reasonable fare
E) his work on rocket motors has greatly
contributed to space research

76. It is clear from the passage that there ----.
A) is an ongoing debate on the uses of ballistic
missiles
B) is some discrepancy between Ashford’s words
and his actions
C) is much public support for Ashford’s project
D) are many technological differences between
Ashford’s rocket motors and the conventional
rockets currently in use
E) is much concern among space scientists,
including Ashford, about the ever-growing costs
of the space programme in general and of
shuttle flights in particular

The Wireless Museum has several of the earliest
crystal wireless sets from the 1920s which ran on
electromagnetic waves with no external power
source, and were easily made at home. Valve radios,
which came along in the 1930s, needed electricity to
heat up the valves and the museum has both mains
and battery-powered valve radios on display. The
collection also has some rare wartime civilian
receivers — the only type of valve radio
manufactured during the Second World War. This
was by order of the government, because at this time
most manufacturing was focused on the war effort.
There are also plenty of modern day transistor radios
including a collection of novelty radios dating from
the sixties and seventies.

77. It is pointed out in the passage that, during World
War II, ----.
A) transistor radios began to replace traditional
valve radios
B) the production of wireless sets was almost
entirely for military purposes
C) various types of radios requiring no external
power source were developed
D) the government banned all kinds of civilian
receivers
E) the efficiency of valve radios was upgraded
through the introduction of new designs

78. We learn from the passage that the very early
crystal wireless sets ----.
A) were the models out of which transistor radios
were later developed
B) were manufactured in large quantities before the
arrival of valve radios
C) are among the museum’s most precious exhibits
D) were still in use during World War II, though in
limited numbers
E) were unconnected to an outside power system

79. It is clear from the passage that valve radios ----.
A) were still in widespread use in the sixties and
seventies
B) originally operated on electromagnetic waves
C) consumed more electricity than one might
expect
D) are of two types: mains and battery-powered
E) were costly products and the government
disapproved of them

80. This passage is concerned with ----.
A) the exhibits of a wireless museum which cover a
considerable variety
B) the government’s war efforts and production
policies regarding radios
C) the technical features of transistor radios
D) the way a valve radio works
E) why the wireless museum was originally set up

Aging involves multiple harmful biological events that
accumulate in different tissues over time and
gradually reduce an organism’s state of maintenance
and function. Calendar time, however, serves as an
imperfect measurement of the physiological
processes involved in aging. We all know individuals
who are the same chronological age but appear to be
very different when it comes to physiological age.
Rather than counting years — or gray hairs, for that
matter — modern gerontologists turn to biological
markers, or biomarkers, of aging. These
physiological parameters indicate an individual’s
functional level and some biomarkers, such as insulin
levels, correlate with mortality. The presence of such
biomarkers depends indirectly on patterns of gene
expression, which are induced by a variety of internal
or external stimuli.

57. It is pointed out in the passage that the process
of aging ----.
A) can best be determined through biological
markers
B) has a pattern which varies very little among
individuals
C) cannot be clearly understood without taking into
account the graying of a person’s hair
D) is best indicated by the amount of years a
person has lived
E) has an adverse effect on very few functions of
an individual’s body

58. We understand from the passage that biomarkers
----.
A) do not always produce reliable results in
measuring a person’s biological age
B) are closely related to insulin levels
C) and calendar time must be taken into account in
finding out about a person’s health
D) are of primary importance for gerontologists in
learning about a person’s physical condition
E) can undermine an organism’s state of
maintenance and function

59. It is clear from the passage that as one ages ----.
A) one’s genetic defects become more obvious
B) the body’s ability to maintain itself starts to
deteriorate
C) the physiological processes accurately reflect
chronological time
D) there are functional changes in the body but
these are hard to detect
E) one’s insulin level remains stable

60. This passage is essentially concerned with ----.
A) various causes of aging
B) the damaging effects induced by aging
C) the significance of biomarkers in measuring the
process of aging
D) the role a person’s genes have in the process of
aging
E) the need to carry out more research into aging

Cardiac transplantation, once considered an
experimental procedure, has emerged as the therapy
of choice for many appropriately selected patients
with life-threatening irremediable heart disease.
Congestive heart failure (CHF), the primary indication
for cardiac transplantation, is the most commonly
reported reason for hospital admission. A knowledge
of cardiac transplantation medicine is therefore
important for all physicians, as transplantation should
be considered a therapeutic option for many of these
patients. In the past, post-cardiac transplant care was
largely performed by specialized transplant
physicians, primarily cardiologists and cardiovascular
surgeons. As survival after cardiac transplantation
has improved markedly over the last decade, the
population of patients who are long-term survivors
after heart transplantation has grown. Primary care
physicians, as well as cardiologists not based at
cardiac transplant centres, often assist in the care of
these patients, most often in consultation with cardiac
transplant physicians. In addition, a physician may be
called on to assist in the management and evaluation
of a potential cardiac donor.

61. According to the passage, in recent years ----.
A) almost every patient with heart disease has
come to recognize cardiac transplantation as an
indispensable therapeutic option
B) more and more patients with CHF have chosen
to undergo cardiac transplantation
C) the number of cardiac transplant centres in the
world has increased due to advances in cardiac
transplantation
D) there has been a noticeable improvement in the
survival of post-cardiac transplant patients
E) cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons have
been engaged in extensive research for the
improvement of post-cardiac transplant care

62. We learn from the passage that, to start with,
cardiac transplantation ----.
A) was an experimental procedure rather than a
therapy
B) was carried out on every patient with CHF
C) had a very low success-rate indeed
D) could only be practised at special cardiac
transplant centres
E) was generally regarded with disapproval in the
medical world

63. It is pointed out in the passage that cardiac
transplant physicians ----.
A) are no longer involved in post-cardiac transplant
care
B) are often assisted in post-cardiac transplant care
by primary care physicians
C) are the only ones qualified to select cardiac
donors
D) are still experimenting in developing an improved
method of cardiac transplantation
E) are primarily affiliated with cardiac transplant
centres outside hospitals

64. It can be understood from the passage that not
every patient with congestive heart failure ----.
A) reports to a cardiologist for treatment
B) agrees to undergo cardiac transplantation
C) can qualify for cardiac transplantation
D) is admitted to hospital for diagnosis and
treatment
E) realizes just how serious the condition is

When a patient sees a doctor, the patient is seeking
help –- to regain or retain health. The physician’s
task is to work for the patient’s health. The doctor
does so by treating disease, by relieving discomfort,
by assisting the patient with any disability, by
preventing premature death, and by maximizing
contentment. (Some have summarized these
activities as tackling “the five D’s” of health – disease,
discomfort, disability, death, and dissatisfaction).
Often there is success in all these areas. In the best
of circumstances, the doctor is able to prevent
disease and help the patient remain healthy. In other
cases, disease and death defeat us. In some cases
none of the goals are achieved, but even that
outcome must not stop us from trying. By focusing on
the health of the patient, the doctor tests the myriad
activities of clinical medicine against the health
outcome of the patient.

65. According to the passage, as regards “the five
D’s” of health, ----.
A) a doctor should never admit to failure
B) it is, unfortunately, discomfort that is most
frequently overlooked
C) a doctor’s priority must be the accurate
diagnosis of the disease
D) the psychology of the patient is of paramount
importance
E) a doctor is not likely to achieve success in all
areas, all the time

66. It is stressed in the passage that a patient seeks
medical help ----.
A) either to recover from disease or to maintain
health
B) only when he/she is in acute pain
C) only after a condition has become chronic
D) because friends or family have urged him/her to
do so
E) if there seems to be a serious medical problem
calling for clinical tests

67. We understand from the passage that, in offering
medical help to a patient, the physician ----.
A) needs to know something about the patient’s
medical history
B) also seeks professional self-satisfaction
C) does contribute, to a significant extent, to the
patient’s well-being
D) often feels it is advisable to consult a colleague
and get a second opinion
E) has to take into account the psychological needs
of the patient

68. In this passage, emphasis is put on the fact that
----.
A) some patients are harder to please than others
B) a physician is very rarely able to tackle all of the
“the five D’s” with any degree of success
C) a patient’s expectations can very rarely be met
D) a patient’s state of mind can detract from his/her
recovery
E) a physician’s duties to a patient are wide in
range

Cancer describes a class of diseases characterized by
the uncontrolled growth of aberrant cells. Cancers kill
by the destructive invasion of normal organs through
direct extension and spread to distant sites via the
blood, lymph, or serosal surfaces. The abnormal
clinical behaviour of cancer cells is often mirrored by
biologic aberrations such as genetic mutations,
chromosomal translocations, expression of fetal or
other discordant ontologic characteristics, and the
inappropriate secretion of hormones or enzymes. All
cancers invade or metastasize but each specific type
has unique biologic and clinical features that must be
appreciated for proper diagnosis, treatment and study.
About 1.2 million new cases of invasive cancer are
diagnosed each year in the United States, and about
500,000 people die annually of the disease. Cancer is
the second most deadly disease and is expected to
surpass heart disease early in the twenty-first century
to top that vicious list. Over the past half century, the
frequency of most cancers has been stable, but some
dramatic changes have taken place. Steady declines in
stomach and uterine cancer have occurred, the latter
undoubtedly due to routine cytologic screening for
cervical cancer. The cause of the decline in stomach
cancer is unknown. The most striking change has been
the increases in lung cancer in both men and women,
undoubtedly related to smoking.

69. It is pointed out in the passage that, over the next
few decades, mortality due to cancer ----.
A) will start to decline as new methods of treatment
are introduced
B) will be higher than the mortality caused by heart
disease
C) will start to threaten younger people
D) will be greatly reduced through an increase in
early diagnosis
E) will increase at an alarming rate as very many
more people are starting to smoke

70. As it is pointed out in the passage, cancer ----.
A) has been on a steady increase since the midtwentieth
century
B) has caused much higher mortality in the United
States than anywhere else in the world
C) is a disease with a great deal of variety, which
requires different treatments and studies
D) is still a disease much deadlier than heart
disease
E) of the stomach is the one that causes the most
problems

71. We learn from the passage that, among the
different cancers, lung cancer ----.
A) shows a downward trend in the United States
B) is the one that most needs to be dealt with
immediately
C) is the one that most readily yields to treatment
D) has appeared with increasing frequency over the
years
E) affects as many non-smokers as smokers

72. We learn from the passage that cancer cells ----.
A) all present the same clinical features
B) can be carried by the blood and spread to distant
organs
C) are not necessarily invasive
D) rarely lead to genetic mutations
E) have not been linked to biologic aberrations

Medicine is not a science, but a profession that
encompasses medical science learning as well as
personal, humanistic, and professional attributes.
Nonetheless, the delivery of Western medicine
depends totally on science and the scientific method.
Since Flexner issued his famous report on the
subject in 1910, American medical education has
striven to develop a strong scientific base as an
integral part of medical education at every level:
premedical, medical, residency and continuing
medical education. Biomedical science is
fundamental to understanding disease, making
diagnoses, applying new therapies and appreciating
the complexities and opportunities of new
technologies. The process of becoming a physician
and being committed to lifelong learning requires that
one possess the scientific base not only to acquire
and appreciate new knowledge but to see new ways
for applying it to patient care as well. The physician
must be able to understand reports of current
research in the medical literature in order to grasp
and evaluate the newest and latest approaches, no
matter how complicated the field may become.

73. We understand from the passage that, for a
physician, ----.
A) it is almost impossible to keep up with recent
developments in medicine
B) it is what he learned during residency that most
influences his approach to his patients
C) medical education is not limited to medical
school and residency, but is actually a process
of lifelong learning
D) new developments outside his own field of
specialization can be ignored
E) the scientific base of his medical knowledge is
far more important than any new technologies
and approaches

74. It is clear from the passage that, as a result of
Flexner’s report, ----.
A) the humanistic aspect of the medical profession
has received much more attention
B) residency has come to the fore in American
medical education
C) the whole system of patient care in American
hospitals has been restructured
D) specialization rather than general medical
practice has become widespread in the United
States
E) medical education in the United States has
undergone a process of transformation

75. We understand from the passage that biomedical
science ----.
A) is quite unrelated to patient-care
B) has only come to be appreciated in recent
decades
C) is only fully valued by those involved in serious
research
D) is of great importance in really all of a
physician’s activities
E) bears little relation to other areas of science

76. It is clear that the main aim of the passage is to
----.
A) emphasize that a thorough grounding in science
is the basis of a good medical education
B) establish the fact that the acquisition of new
knowledge is not as important as finding new
ways to apply it
C) explain the controversial uses of biomedical
science
D) encourage physicians to familiarize themselves
with the opportunities offered by new
technologies
E) introduce scientists to current research in
medical literature

In the past, lead poisoning was thought to arise from
pica (abnormal ingestion) among children living in
old, broken-down houses with peeling layers of leadbased
paints. In the past two decades, lead
intoxication has occurred with decreasing frequency.
This may in part be related to less use of lead in paint
and leaded gasoline; several studies relate
environmental lead contamination to traffic density
patterns. In the United States, hundreds of
occupations involve potentially significant exposure.
It is estimated that more than 800,000 American
workers have potentially significant lead exposure.
Lead and other metal workers or miners, storage
battery workers, and pottery makers are particularly
heavily exposed. Workers in auto manufacturing,
ship building, paint manufacture and printing
industries are also at substantial risk, as are house
painters and those who repair old houses. In past
centuries lead was added to wine to sweeten it, a
deception that was eventually made punishable by
death. Recently, adding lead to various herbal and
folk medicines has resulted in poisoning. Bullets left
in the body can result in lead poisoning, especially if
a joint is involved, because synovial fluid appears to
be a good solvent for lead. The interval between the
bullet getting embedded in the body and clinical
evidence of lead poisoning has ranged from 2 days
to 40 years.

77. It is stated in the passage that lead exposure ----.
A) has been recognized by many employers as a
deadly threat to their work force
B) has been increasing at an alarming rate in many
industries in the United States
C) is a very serious concern in various occupations
and industries
D) has led to the introduction of various preventive
measures in certain occupations and industries
E) and its consequences have only recently
become a major concern of clinical research

78. According to the passage, there is scientific
evidence to suggest that ----.
A) a bullet induces lead poisoning as soon as it is
lodged in the body
B) heavy traffic causes lead contamination in the
environment
C) most cases of lead poisoning have resulted from
lead-based paints
D) the risk of lead poisoning is equally likely to
occur in all the different metal industries and
occupations
E) the quality of wines can be improved
substantially through the use of lead chemicals

79. It is pointed out in the passage that, a reduction
of lead in paint and petrol, ----.
A) was recommended decades ago but never
enforced
B) will do little to overcome environmental
contamination
C) will bring substantial benefits to house painters
and those repairing old houses, but to no one
else
D) has produced as many negative results as
positive
E) may have contributed to the decrease in cases
of lead poisoning observed in recent years

80. We learn from the passage that, despite its
adverse effects, lead ----.
A) is not generally regarded as a dangerous
substance
B) is not nearly as poisonous as several other
metals
C) still remains one of the most valuable and
versatile of earth’s metals
D) is still being used in a great many industries
E) is only potentially dangerous to children, not to
adults
