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.

Because writing has become so important in our culture, we sometimes think of it as more real than speech. A little thought, however, will show why speech is primary and writing secondary to language. Human beings have been writing at least 5,000 years, but they have been talking for much longer, doubtless ever since there have been human beings. When writing developed, it was derived from and represented speech, although imperfectly. Even today, there are spoken languages that have no written form. Furthermore, we all learn to talk well before we learn to write; any child who is not severely handicapped physically or mentally will learn to talk: a normal man cannot be prevented from doing so. On the other hand, it takes a special effort to learn to write; in the past, many intelligent and useful members of society did not acquire the skill, and even today many who speak languages with writing systems never learn to read or write while some who learn the rudiments of those skills do so imperfectly.

To affirm the primacy of speech over writing is not to disparage the later. One advantage writing has over speech is that it is more permanent and makes possible the  records that any civilization must have. Thus, if speaking makes us human, writing makes us civilized.

Question 12: According to paragraph 1, the author of the passage argues that __________ 

A. writing has become too important in today’s society.

B. speech is more basic to language than writing.

A. “almost uncertainly”

B. “almost certainly”

C. “almost impossibly”

D. “almost doubtly”

A. is imperfect, but less than speech

B. represents speech, but not perfectly

C. developed from imperfect speech

D. is represented perfectly by speech

Question 15: In order to show that learning to write requires effort, the author gives the example of_________.

A. people who learn the rudiments of speech

B. people who speak many languages

C. intelligent people who couldn’t write

D. severely handicapped children

Question 16: The word “acquire” in the passage mostly means       .

A. “help somebody learn something by giving information about it”

B. “gain something by our own efforts or ability”

C. “become aware of something by hearing about it”

D. “develop a natural ability or quality so that it improves”

Question 17: The word “disparage” in the passage mostly means   .

A. “think that something is more important”

B. “make something seem more important”

C. “think about something carefully”

D. “suggest that something is not important or valuable”

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.

After two decades of growing student enrollments and economic prosperity,  business schools in the United States have started to face harder times. Only Harvard’s MBA School has shown a substantial increase in enrollment in recent years. Both Princeton and Stanford have seen decreases in their enrollments. Since 1990, the number of people  receiving Masters in Business Administration (MBA) degrees, has dropped about 3 percent to 75,000, and the trend of lower enrollment rates is expected to continue.

There are two factors causing this decrease in students seeking an MBA degree. The first one is that many graduates of four-year colleges are finding that an MBA degree does not guarantee a plush job on Wall Street, or in other financial districts of major American cities. Many of the entry-level management jobs are going to students graduating with Master of Arts degrees in English and the humanities as well as those holding MBA degrees. Students have asked the question, “Is an MBA degree really what I need to be best prepared for getting a good job?” The second major factor has been the cutting of American payrolls and the lower number of entry-level jobs being offered. Business needs are changing, and MBA schools are struggling to meet the new demands.
