Chess must be one of the oldest games in the world. An Arab traveler in India in the
year 900 wrote that it was played long , long ago. Chess was probably invented in India,
and it has been played everywhere from Japan to Europe since 1400. The name chess is
interesting. When one player is attacking the others king, he says in English, check. When
the king has been caught and cannot move anywhere, he says check mate. These words
come from Persian. shah mat means the king is dead. That is the game is over, and one
player has won.
Such an old game changes very slowly. The rules have not always been the same as
they are now. For example, at one time the queen could only move one square at a time.
Now she is the strongest piece on the board. It would be interesting to know why this has
happened! Chess takes time and thought, but it is a game for all kinds of people. You dont
have to be champion in order to enjoy it. it is not always played by two people sitting at the
same table.The first time of the Americans beat the Russians was in a match played by
radio. Some of the chess masters are able to play many people at the same time. The
record was when one man played 400 games! It is said that some people play chess by
post. This must make chess the slowest game in the world.
46. Which of the following is known to be true?
A. Chess was played in India long before 900. B. Chess is an old Indian
traveling 900
C. Chess is the oldest game in the world. D. Chess was played in Japan and
Europe before 400

48. Which of the following will you hear when one player has won the game?
A. Check mate B. Shah mat C. The King is dead D. check
49. Which following is NOT correct of the passage?

C. The Russian lost the game played by radio. D. Only two people can play
chess sitting at the same table.
50. According to the old rules of the game___.

Basic to any understanding of Canada in the 20 years after the Second World War is
the countrys impressive population growth. For every three Canadians in 1945, there were
over five in 1966. In September 1966 Canadas population passed the 20 million mark. Most
of his surging growth ca me from natural increase. The depression of the 1930s and the
war had held back marriages, and the catching-up process began after 1945. The baby
boom continued through the decade of the 1950s, producing a population increase of nearly
fifteen percent in the five years from 1951 to 1956. This rate of increase had been exceeded
only once before settleD. Undoubtedly, the good economic condition of the 1950s supported
a growth in the population, but the expansion also derived from a trend toward earlier
marriages and an increase in the average size of families. In 1957 the Canadian birth rate
stood at 28 per thousand, one of the highest in the world.
After the peak year of 1957, the birth rate in Canada began to decline. It continued
failing until in 1966 it stood at the lowest level in 25 years. Partly this decline reflected the
low level of births during the depression and the war, but it was also caused by changes in
Canadian society. Young people were staying at school longer; more women were working;
young married couples were buying automobiles or houses before starting families; rising
living standards were cutting down the size of families.
It appeared that Canada was once more falling in step with the trend toward smaller
families that had occurred all through the Western world since the time of the Industrial
Although the growth in Canadas population had slowed down by 1966 (the increase
in the first half of the 1960s was only nine percent), another large population wave was
coming over the horizon. It would be composed of the children who were born during the
period of the high birth rate prior to 1957.
