PRACTICE TEST 1 Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions below: My lawyer, Mr. Turner, is the only man I know who has seen a ghost. He is a quiet even-tempered man whose life is spent in dealing with facts. He is the last person in the world to give way to fantasy. He has a wife and two children of whom he is proud, takes a modest holiday abroad every year and spends his Sundays gardening. He is knowledgeable about art and architecture, though he doesn't pretend to be an expert by any means. It is, therefore, all the more surprising that he should so insistent about the ghost. It happened, so he says, like this: He was travelling2 from London to the North of England by train. It was a misty November evening and the train was half empty. In fact for the first part of the journey Mr. Turner had the carriage to himself and sat dozing over a newspaper. However at the first stop a passenger jumped in, slamming the door behind him. He seemed out of breath as if he had been running. He was a striking looking young man with dark, bushy hair and bright intelligent eyes. He was dressed rather oddly in a long waited coat with silver buttons, tight trousers and an embroidered waistcoat. Mr. Turner did not pay much attention to this because people wear all sorts of extravagant clothes these days and he had long grown accustomed to them. Presently, the two men got into conversation, as people do on long journeys. Mr Turner was interested to cover that the young man was very knowledgeable about Art - in particular portraits. His name, he said, was Joseph Hart, and he was on his way to visit an exhibition. It seemed that he worked in a famous London Art Gallery - a picture restorer, perhaps, thought Mr. Turner, for he seemed to know a great deal about varnishes and paints, and even more about the subjects of certain portraits. When Mr. Turner asked his opinion of the portrait of a famous judge by an artist he admired, his companion laughed and said, “He’s only a reproduction - a good one I agree but you can't talk to a reproduction.” He spoke as though the person in the portrait were still living. After a while the carriage got hot and steamy and Mr. Turner dropped off. He woke up just as the train was drawing up at a junction with a grinding of brakes. His companion had disappeared. A few days later, having returned to London, Mr. Turner found himself near the Art Gallery. Moved by some impulse, he went in and enquired for Joseph Hart. The attendant directed him to a room devoted to early nineteenth century portraits of well- known men. There was no-one in the room and Mr. Turner looked about him. Without knowing quite how he had got there, he found himself standing in front of a full-length portrait of a dark young man in tight trousers and an embroidered waistcoat. The eyes smiled at him with a hint of amusement. The name-plate at the foot of the picture read: Joseph Hart, Gentleman, 1800-1835. 1. What kind of person was Mr Turner? A. imaginative B. fantastic C. sensible D. insensitive 1 2. Although he was a lawyer, Mr Turner ……………. A. pretended to know a lot about Art C. pretended to take an interest in Art.

B. be an Art Expert. D. paint reproductions of old pictures. 6. Why wouldn’t the passenger give an opinion on the portrait of the judge? A. the judge wasn’t alive. C. the picture was a copy. B. the judge was still alive. D. he hadn’t seen it. 7. When did Mr Turner first realize that the passenger had gone? A. When the train started. C. Just before the train stopped. B.

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions below: Quite different from storm surges are the giant sea waves called tsunamis, which derive their name from the Japanese expression for "high water in a harbor". These waves are also referred to by the general public as tidal waves, although they have relatively little to do with tides. Scientists often refer to them as seismic sea waves, far more appropriate in that they do result from undersea seismic activity. Tsunamis are caused when the sea bottom suddenly moves, during an underwater earthquake or volcano, for example, and the water above the moving earth is suddenly displaced. This sudden shift of water sets off a series of waves. These waves can travel great distances at speeds close to 700 kilometers per hour. In the open ocean, tsunamis have little noticeable amplitude, often no more than one or 2 two meters. It is when they hit the shallow water the coast that they increase in height, possibly up to 40 meters. Tsunamis often occur in the Pacific because the Pacific is an area of heavy seismic activity. Two areas of the Pacific well accustomed to the threat of tsunamis arc Japan and Hawaii. Because the seismic activity that causes tsunamis in Japan often occurs on the ocean bottom quite close to the islands, the tsunamis that hit Japan often comes with little warning and can therefore prove disastrous. Most of the tsunamis that hit the Hawaiian Islands, however, originate thousands of miles away near the coast of Alaska, so these tsunamis have a much greater distance to travel and the inhabitants of Hawaii generally have time for warning of their imminent arrival. Tsunamis are certainly not limited to Japan and Hawaii. In 1755, Europe experienced a calamitous tsunami, when movement along the fault lines near the Azores caused a massive tsunami to sweep onto the Portuguese coast and flood the heavily populated area around Lisbon. The greatest tsunami on record occurred on the other side of the world in 1883 when the Krakatoa volcano underwent a massive explosion, sending waves more than 30 meters high onto nearby Indonesian islands; the tsunami from this volcano actually traveled around the world and was witnessed as far away as the English Channel. 11: The paragraph preceding this passage most probably discusses ………… A. underwater earthquakes B. storm surges C. tides D. tidal waves 12: According to the passage, all of the following are true about tidal waves EXCEPT that ………… A. they're caused by sudden changes in high and low tides B. they refer to the same phenomenon as seismic sea waves C. they are the same as tsunamis D. this terminology is not used by the scientific community 13: The world "displaced" in the second paragraph is closest in meaning to A. located B. filtered C. moved D. not pleased 14: It can be inferred from the passage that tsunamis A. are often identified by ships on the ocean B. generally reach heights greater than 40 meters C. are far more dangerous on the coast than in the open ocean D. cause severe damage in the middle of the ocean 15: As used in the passage, water that is "shallow" isn't … A. coastal B. deep C. clear D. tidal 16: A main difference between tsunamis in Japan and in Hawaii is that tsunamis in Japan are more likely to . A. come from greater distances B. be less of a problem C. originate in Alaska D. arrive without warning 17: The possessive "their" in the third paragraph refers to …… .
