X. READING:
Passage 1: Read the following passage and choose the best answers to the questions
It is estimated that over 99 percent of all species that ever existed have become extinct. What causes
extinction? When a species is no longer adapted to a change environment, it may perish. The exact causes
of a species‟ death vary from situation to situation. Rapid ecological change may render an environment
hostile to a species. For example, temperatures may change and a species may not be adapt. Food
resources may be affected by environmental changes, which will then cause problems for a species
requiring these resources. Other species may become better adapted to an environment, resulting in
competition and, ultimately, in the death of a species..
The fossil record reveals that extinction has occurred throughout the history of Earth..
Recent analyses have also revealed that on some occasions many species became extinct at the same time
- a mass extinction. One of the best - known examples of mass extinction occurred 65 million years ago
with the demise of dinosaurs and many other forms of life. Perhaps the largest mass extinction was the
one that occurred 225 million years ago, when approximately 95 percent of all species died. Mass
extinctions can be caused by a relatively rapid change in the environment and can be worsened by the
close interrelationship of many species. If, for example, something were to happen to destroy much of
the plankton in the oceans, then the oxygen content of Earth would drop, affection even organisms not
living in the oceans. Such a change would probably lead to a mass extinction..
One interesting, and controversial, finding is that extinctions during the past 250 million years have
tended to be more intense every 26 million years. The periodic extinction might be due to intersection of
the earth’s orbit with a cloud of comets, but this theory is purely speculative. Some researchers have also
speculated that extinction may often be random. That is, certain species may be eliminated and others
may survive for no particular reason. A species‟ survival may have nothing to do with its ability or
inability to adapt. If so, some of revolutionary history may reflect a sequence of essentially random
events.

Passage 2. Read the following andmark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer.
Harvard University, today recognized as part of the top echelon of the world's universities, came
from very inauspicious and humble beginning.
This oldest of American universities was founded in 1636, just sixteen years after the Pilgrims
landed at Plymouth. Included in the Puritan emigrants to the Massachusetts colony during this period
were more than 100 graduates of England's prestigious Oxford and Cambridge universities, and these
universities graduates in the New Word were determined that their sons would have the same educational
opportunities that they themselves had had. Because of this support in the colony for an institution of
higher learning, the General Court of Massachusetts appropriated 400 pounds for a college in October of
1636 and early the following year decided on a parcel of land for the school; this land was in an area
called Newetowne, which was later renamed Cambridge after its English cousin and is the site of the
present-day university.
When a young minister named John Harvard, who came from the neighboring town of
Charlestown, died from tuberculosis in 1638, he willed half of his estate of 1,700 pounds to the fledgling
college. In spite of the fact that only half of the bequest was actually paid, the General Court named the
college after the minister in appreciation for what he had done. The amount of the bequest may not have
been large, particularly by today's standard, but it was more than the General Court had found it necessary
to appropriate in order to open the college.
Henry Dunster was appointed the first president of Harvard in 1640, and it should be noted that in
addition to serving as president, he was also the entire faculty, with an entering freshmen class of four
students. Although the staff did expand somewhat, for the first century of its existence the entire teaching
staff consisted of the president and three or four tutors.
131. The main idea of this passage is that ______________ .
A Harvard University developed under the auspices of the General Court of Massachusetts

A one of the oldest universities in the world B the oldest university in the world
C one of the oldest universities in America D the oldest university in America
133 .It can be inferred from the passage that the Puritans who traveled to the Massachusetts colony were ____________
A rather rich B Rather well educated
C rather supportive of the English government D rather undemocratic
134. The pronoun "they" in the second paragraph refers to _______________
A sons B university graduates
C Oxford and Cambridge universities D educational opportunities
135. The "pounds" in the second paragraph are probably ______________
A units of money B college students
C types of books D school campuses
136. Which of the following is NOT mentioned about John Harvard?
A What he died of B Where he came from
C Where he was buried D How much he bequeathed to Harvard
137. The passage implies that __________________ .
A Someone else really served as president of Harvard B Henry Dunster was an ineffective president
before Henry Dunster
C Henry Dunster spent much of his time as president D The position of president of Harvard was not
managing the Harvard faculty merely an administrative position in the early ears
