Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 36 to 45.

      Probably the most famous film commenting on the twentieth-century technology is Modern Times, made in 1936. Charlie Chaplin was motivated to make the film by a reporter who, while interviewing him, happened to describe the working conditions in industrial Detroit. Chaplin was told that healthy young farm boys were lured to the city to work on automotive assembly line. Within four or five years, these young men’s health was destroyed by the stress of work in the factories.

      The film opens with a shot of a mass of sheep making their way down a crowded ramp.

      Abruptly, the film shifts to a scene of factory worker jostling one another on their way to a factory. However, the rather bitter note of criticism in the implied comparison is not sustained. It is replaced by a gentle note of satire. Chaplin prefers to entertain rather than lecture.

      Scenes of factory interiors account for only about one-third of Modern Times, but they contain some of the most pointed social commentary as well as the most comic situations. No one who has seen the film can ever forget Chaplin vainly trying to keep pace with the fast-moving conveyor belt, almost losing his mind in the process. Another popular scene involves an automatic feeding machine brought to the assembly line so that workers need not interrupt their labor to eat. The feeding machine malfunctions, hurling food at Chaplin, who is strapped in his position on the assembly line and cannot escape. This serves to illustrate people’s utter helplessness in the face of machines that are meant to serve their basic needs.

      Clearly, Modern Times has its faults, but it remains the best film treating technology within a social context. It does not offer a radical social message, but it does accurately reflect the sentiment of many who feel they are victims of an over-mechanised world.

Question 36: According to the passage, Chaplin got the idea for Modern Times from______.

      A. a movie                 B. a conversation            C. a newspaper                   D. fieldwork

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 56 to 65.

      Very few people in the modern world obtain their food supply by hunting and gathering in the natural environment surrounding their homes. This method of harvesting from nature’s provision is the oldest known subsistence strategy and has been practised for at least the last two million years. It was, indeed, the only way to obtain food until rudimentary farming and the domestication of wild animals were introduced about 10,000 years ago.

      Because hunter-gatherers have fared poorly in comparison with their agricultural cousins, their numbers have dwindled, and they have been forced to live in marginal environments, such as deserts and arctic wastelands. In higher latitudes, the shorter growing seasons have restricted the availability of plant life. Such conditions have caused a greater dependence on hunting, and on fishing along the coasts and waterways. The abundance of vegetation in the lower latitudes of the tropics, on the other hand, has provided a greater opportunity for gathering a variety of plants. In short, the environmental differences have restricted the diet and have limited possibilities for the development of subsistence societies.

      Contemporary hunter-gatherers may help us understand our prehistoric ancestors. We know from the observation of modern hunter-gatherers in both Africa and Alaska that a society based on hunting and gathering must be very mobile. While the entire community camps in a central location, a smaller party harvests the food within a reasonable distance from the camp. When the food in the area has become exhausted, the community moves on to exploit another site. We also notice seasonal migration patterns evolving for most hunter-gatherers, along with a strict division of labor between the sexes. These patterns of behavior may be similar to those practised by mankind during the Paleolithic Period.

Question 56: The word “domestication” in the first paragraph mostly means______.

      A. hatching and raising new species of wild animals in the home

      B. adapting animals to suit a new working environment

      C. teaching animals to do a particular job or activity in the home

      D. making wild animals used to living with and working for humans

Question 57: According to the passage, subsistence societies depend mainly on______.

      A. agricultural products                                    B. hunter-gatherers’ tools

      C. nature’s provision                                        D. farming methods

Question 58: The word “marginal” in the second paragraph is closest in meaning to “______”.

      A. forgotten               B. suburban                    C. disadvantaged                D. abandoned

Question 59: In the lower latitudes of the tropics, hunter-gatherers______.

      A. have better food gathering from nature         B. can free themselves from hunting

      C. harvest shorter seasonal crops                       D. live along the coasts and waterways for fishing
