Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on year answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.
With a UPS receiver, you need never be lost again. Whether you are driving in a new city or climbing a mountain path, you can use UPS (Global Positioning System) to find out exactly where you are. In recent years, the development of very small and inexpensive receivers has made possible all kinds of other uses. Many cars now come equipped with GPS receivers and computerized maps to show where you are. Parents or pet owners put receivers on their children or their dogs so they cannot be lost. However, what makes GPS so usefill-the way it allows us to keep track of people and things-could also make it dangerous if it is used for the wrong purposes. Some organizations that are concerned about rights to privacy have argued that there should be limits to who can use GPS and for what purpose. In the United States, several cases have been brought to court to question the right of the government or private companies to track people "without their knowledge".
One important case came up in 2003 before the Supreme Court in the state of Washington. Under American laws protecting the right to privacy, the government or the police are not allowed to investigate a person's private life if there is no evidence that he or she has committed a crime. In the Washington case, the police had wanted to learn more about the habits of a man they suspected, so they hid a GPS receiver in his car. Lawyers for the suspect argued that this was illegal because it went against his right to privacy. The Washington Supreme Court agreed. In their view, hiding a GPS receiver in a car was like putting an invisible police officer in the back seat This was acceptable practice only if the police already had evidence that the suspect had been involved in a crime and if they had permission from a judge. Otherwise, it could not be used.
In 2005, another interesting case involving GPS was brought before the Supreme Court in Connecticut. This case involved a rental car company that decided to use GPS technology to prevent customers from driving their cars too fast. They hid GPS receivers in all their rental cars, which allowed them to know where each car was at any time. The receivers could also be used to calculate the speed at which a car moved from one place to another. If the car was driven faster than 80 miles per hour (120 km hour), the driver was charged an extra $150. Though the rental contract did mention GPS in very small print, customers were not told about it or about the extra charge. One customer who was charged 450 for speeding three times became very angry, and he decided to bring the rental company to court. In his view, the rental company had used GPS to spy on him illegally and the charges were unfair. The Connecticut Supreme Court agreed that this use of GPS was not acceptable and told the rental company to return the 450. According to the judges, the rental company should have informed the driver about the existence of a GPS receiver in the car and about the speeding charge.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C. or D se year answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the question.
In the early years after the invention of lasers, scientists called thirst a solution looking for a problem." It was obvious that lasers were vex! special, but it took scientists a while to find practical applications for them. Over time, hundreds of uses have been found for lasers in many areas of science and technology. They are used in the newest telecommunication systems, in computer printers, and in compact disc players. They are also used in show business to create special lighting effects. But where lasers have made the most difference is undoubtedly in the world of medicine, where they can be used for many tasks that require fine precision.
First, doctors can use lasers as cutting tools. Surgeons prefer lasers to surgical knives for certain operations because laser beams can be made much narrower than a knife blade. Also, with lasers, doctors can work more quickly than with metal tools, and so there is less risk of infection. Furthermore, a laser beam produces heat, which helps to close off the skin or tissue being cut into and reduces bleeding. Thus, lasers have proved extremely useful in the fine surgery required to reconstruct veins and arteries. They are also used in surgery to remove certain kinds of brain or liver cancers. Doctors are experimenting with ways to find cancer in various parts of the body through the use of a colored liquid that colors only the cancerous areas. Then they can use lasers designed for that color to find the cancer and burn it away. This removes the disease from the body but damages nothing else.
Lasers have also dramatically changed the work of eye doctors. Poor vision is one of the most common medical problems in the world, and until recently the only way to correct it was with eyeglasses or contact lenses. Now many vision problems can be corrected permanently with laser surgery. This surgery has made an enormous difference for people who were practically blind without their glasses or contact lenses. After a lifetime of worrying about breaking or losing their glasses or lenses, they can see normally without them. For eye surgery, doctors need to be extremely precise and extremely quick. A • They use what is known as a cool laser, which produces beams that can cut out 39 millionths of an inch of tissue in 12 billionths of a second. In other words, this kind of laser is so precise it could cut into a strand of hair without cutting all the way through. B• In vision surgery, these lasers are used on a part of the eye called the cornea, which is the transparent covering on the outside. When the cornea is not perfectly round, we cannot see clearly. C • The process takes only a few minutes and because the laser is cool, there is little pain D •
