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.

The stylistic innovation in painting known as Impressionism began in the 1870’s. The Impressionists wanted to  depict what they saw in nature, but they were inspired to portray fragmentary moments by the increasingly fast pace of modern life. They concentrated on the play of light over objects, people, and nature, breaking up seemingly solid surfaces, stressing vivid contrast between colors in sunlight and shade, and depiction reflected light in all of its possibilities. Unlike earlier artists, they did not want to observe the world from indoors. They abandoned the studio, painting in the open air and recording spontaneous Impressions of their subjects instead of making outside sketches and then moving indoors to complete the work form memory.

Some of the Impressionists’ painting methods were affected by technological advances. For example, the shift from the studio to the open air was made possible in part by the advent of cheap rail travel, which permitted easy and quick access to the countryside  or seashore, as well as by newly developed chemical dyes and oils that led to collapsible paint tubes, which enabled artists to finish their paintings on the spot.

Impressionism acquired its name not from supporters but from angry art lovers who felt threatened by the new painting. The term “Impressionism” was born in 1874, when a group of artists who had been working together organized an exhibition of their paintings in order to draw public attention to their work. Reaction from the public and press was immediate, and derisive. Among the 165 paintings exhibited was one called Impression: Sunrise, by Claude Monet (1840-1926), viewed through hostile eyes, Monet’s painting of a rising sun over a misty, watery scene seemed messy, slapdash, and an affront to good taste. Borrowing Monet’s title, art critics extended the term “Impressionism” to the entire exhibit. In response, Monet and his 29 fellow artists in the exhibit adopted the same name as a badge of their unity, despite individual differences. From then until 1886 Impressionism had all the zeal of a “church”, as the painter Renoir put it. Monet was faithful to the Impressionist creed until his death, although many of the  others moved on to new styles.

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

Newspaper  publishers  in  the  United  States  have  long  been  enthusiastic  users  and  distributors  of weather  maps.  Although  some  newspapers  that  had  carried  the  United  States  Weather  Bureau's  national weather map in 1912 dropped it once the novelty had passed, many continued to print the daily weather chart provided  by  their  local  forecasting  office.  In  the  1930's,  when  interest  in  aviation  and  progress  in  air-mass analysis  made  weather  patterns  more  news worthy,  additional  newspapers  started  or  resumed  the  daily weather  map.  In  1935,  The  Associated  Press  (AP)  news  service  inaugurated  its  Wire Photo  network  and offered  subscribing  newspapers  morning  and  afternoon  weather  maps  redrafted  by  the  AP's  Washington, B.C.,  office  from  charts  provided  by  the  government  agency.  Another  news  service,  United  Press International  (UPI),  developed  a  competing  photo-wire  network  and  also  provided  timely  weather  maps  for both  morning  and  afternoon  newspapers.  After  the  United  States  government  launched  a  series  of  weather satellites in 1966, both the AP and UPI offered cloud-cover photos obtained from the Weather Bureau. In  the  late  1970's  and  early  1980's,  the  weather  map  became  an  essential  ingredient  in  the  redesign of  the  American  newspaper.  News  publishers,  threatened  by  increased  competition  from  television  for readers'  attention,  sought  to  package  the  news  more  conveniently  and  attractively.  In  1982,  many  publishers felt  threatened  by  the  new  USA  Today,  a  national  daily  newspaper  that  used  a  page-wide,  full-color  weather map  as  its  key  design  element.  That  the  weather  map  in  USA  Today  did  not  include  information  about weather fronts and pressures attests to the largely symbolic role it played. Nonetheless, competing local and metropolitan newspapers responded in a variety of ways. Most substituted full-color temperature maps for the standard  weather  maps,  while  others  dropped  the  comparatively  drab  satellite  photos  or  added  regional forecast  maps  with  pictorial  symbols  to  indicate  rainy,  snowy,  cloudy,  or  clear  conditions.  A few  newspapers, notably The New York Times, adopted a highly informative yet less visually prominent weather map that was specially  designed  to  explain  an  important  recent  or  imminent  weather  event.  Ironically,  a  newspaper's richest, most instructive weather maps often are comparatively small and inconspicuous.

Read  the  following  passage  and  mark  the  letter  A,  B,  C  or  D  on  your  answer  sheet  to  indicate  the correct word for each of the blanks.

In  recent  years,  there  has  been  a  remarkable  increase  in  research  into  happiness.  The  researchers have (71) ............ a number of factors which contribute to a definition of happiness.

First  of  all,  there  is,  in  some  people,  a  moderate  genetic  predisposition  to  be  happy,  in  other  words, happiness (72) ............ in families. And happiness seems to correlate quite strongly with the main dimensions of personalities: extroverts are generally happier, neurotics are less so.

Second,  people  often (73)  ............ good social  relations  as  a  reason for their  happiness. In  particular, friends  are  a  great (74)  ............  of  joy,  partly  because  of  the  agreeable  things  they  do  together,  partly because  of  the  way  friends  use  positive  non-verbal  signals  such  as  caressing  and  touching,  to  affirm  their friendship. Marriage and similar (75) ............relationships can also form the basis of lasting happiness.

Third,  job  satisfaction  undoubtedly (76)  ............  overall  satisfaction,  and  vice  versa  –  perhaps  this  is why  some  people  are  happy  in  boring  jobs:  it  works  in  both  ways.  Job  satisfaction  is  caused  not  only  by  the essential  nature  of the  work,  but  also  by  social  interactions  with  co-workers.  Unemployment,  on the  contrary, can be a serious cause of unhappiness.

Fourth, leisure is important because it is more under individual (77)............than most other causes of happiness.  Activities (78)  ............  sport  and  music,  and participation  in  voluntary  work  and  social  clubs  of various  kinds,  can  give  great  joy.  This  is  partly  because  of  the (79)  ............  themselves,  but  also  because  of the social support of other group members – it is very strong (80)............ the case of religious groups.
