In the 1960s, the World Health Organization(WHO) began a campaign te eradicate the mosquitoes that
transmit the disease malaria. It was a noble goal, since malaria kills an estimated 3 million people each year
in the world's tropical regions, predominantly southern Africa, WHO led an effort to spray the mosquitoes'
habitat with a chemical pesticide- a poison used to kill insects- called DDT. Early results were promising,
and the mosquito was eliminated from the edge of its native range. The effort soon faltered, however, and the
eradication was dropped. How could a tiny mosquitoes thwart the best efforts of a large group of well-
funded scientists.
Situations like this one have occurred dozens of times in the last several decades. In a common scenario,

whenever a new type of pesticide is used to control agricultural pest, the early results are encouraging. A
relatively small amount of the poison dusted onto a crop may kill 99% of the insects. However, the relatively
few survivors of the first pesticides wave are insects with genes that somehow enable them to resist the
chemical attack. The poison kills most members of the insect population, leaving only the resistant
individuals to reproduce. And when they do, their offspring inherit the genes for pesticide resistance. In each
generation, the proportion of pesticide- resistant individuals in the insect population increases, making
subsequent sprayings less and less effective.
Since the widespread use of chemical pesticides began in the 1940s, scientists have documented
pesticide resistance in more than 500 species of insects. The problems such insects pose-through their impact
on agriculture and medicine- are just some of the many ways that evolution has a direct connection to our
daily lives. Everywhere, all the time, populations of organisms are fine tuning adaptions to local
environments through the evolutionary process of natural selection. Given the dynamics of the Earth and its
life, it is not surprising that even the kinds of organisms on the planet- the species- have changed over the
time.

A. pass on B. kill off C. find out D. increase

C. over 3 million people D. 3 million people to be exact
Question 36: A tiny mosquito thwarted the best efforts of a large group of scientists_______
A. with little money B. with lots of money. C. with lots of experience D. with modern facilities
Question 37: The increase of pesticide-resistant insects________.
A. makes later sprayings more expensive
B. makes it more convenient for future sprayings
C. makes later sprayings less effective.
D. makes subsequent sprayings impossible
Question 38: Relatively few insects have genes that________.
B. make them vulnerable
B. enable them to attack the pesticide
C. prevent them from resisting the chemical attack
D. allow them to survive the pesticide
Question 39: The word "documented" in the third paragraph means_______
A. recorded B. noticed C. viewed D. reviewed
Question 40: According to the passage, the problems caused by insects show_______.

Read the following passage on architecture by Lawrence B. Anderson, and mark the letter A, B, C, or D
on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 44 to 53.
Lighthouses are towers with strong lights that help mariners plot their position, inform them that land is
near, and warn them of dangerous rocks and reefs. They are placed at prominent points on the coast and on
islands, reefs, and sandbars.
Every lighthouse has a distinctive pattern of light known as its characteristic. There are five basic
characteristics: fixed, flashing, occulting, group flashing, and group occulting. A fixed signal is a steady
beam. A flashing signal has periods of darkness longer than periods of light, while an occulting signal’s
periods of light are longer. A group- flashing light gives off two or more flashes at regular intervals, and a
group – occulting signal consists of a fixed light with two or more periods of darkness at regular intervals.
Some lighthouses use lights of different colors as well, and today, most lighthouses are also equipped with
radio beacons. The three types of apparatus used to produce the signals are the catoptric, in which metal is
used to reflect the light; the dioptric, in which glass is used; and the catadioptric, in which both glass and
metal are used.
In the daytime, lighthouses can usually be identified by their structure alone. The most typical structure is
a tower tapering at the top, but some, such as the Bastion Lighthouse on the Saint Lawrence River, are
shaped like pyramids, and others, such as the Race Rock light, look like wooden houses sitting on high
platforms. Still others, such as The American Shoal lighthouse off the Florida Coast, are skeletal towers of
steel. Where lighthouses might be confused in daylight, they can be distinguished by day- marker patterns –
designed of checks and stripes painted in vivid colors on lighthouse walls.
In the past, the job of lighthouse keeper was lonely and difficult if somewhat romantic. Lighthouse
keepers put in hours of tedious work maintaining the lights. Today, lighthouses are almost entirely automated
with humans supplying only occasional maintenance. Because of improvements in navigational technology,
the importance of lighthouses has diminished. There are only about 340 functioning lighthouses in existence
in the United States today, compared to about 1,500 in 1900, and there are only about 1,400 functioning
lighthouses outside the United States. Some decommissioned lighthouses have been preserved as historical
monument.
Question 44:Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the passage as one of the functions of

A. To help sailors determine their location
B. To warn of danger from rocks and reefs
C. To notify sailors that bad weather is approaching
D. To indicate that land is near
Question 45: The word “prominent” is closest in meaning to_______.
A. dangerous B. conspicuous C. picturesque D. famous
Question 46: In the context of this passage, the author uses the term “characteristic” to refer to a
_______.
A. period of darkness B. person who operates a lighthouse
C. pattern painted on a lighthouse D. distinctive light signal
Question 47: According to the passage, what kind of signal has long periods of light that are regularly
broken by two or more periods of darkness?
A. Flashing B. Group occulting C. occulting D. Group flashing
Question 48: According to the passage, a catoptric apparatus is one that uses _______.
A. lights of various colors B. metal
C. glass D. a radio beacon
Question 49: For which of the following does the author NOT provide a scientific example in the third
paragraph?
A. A lighthouse shaped like a pyramid B. A lighthouse made of steel
C. A lighthouse with day-marker patterns D. A lighthouse that resembles a house on a platform
Question 50: The word “tapering” is closest in meaning to which of the following?
