Reading Material

Chang-Rae Lee's debut and award-winning novel Native Speaker is about Henry Park, a Korean-American individual who struggles to find his place as an immigrant in a suburb of New York City. This novel addresses the notion that as the individuals who know us best, our family, peers, and lovers are the individuals who direct our lives and end up defining us. Henry Park is confronted with this reality in the very beginning of the novel, which begins:

The day my wife left she gave me a list of who I was.

Upon separating from his wife, Park struggles with racial and ethnic identity issues due to his loneliness. Through Parks' work as an undercover operative for a private intelligence agency, the author presents the theme of espionage as metaphor for the internal divide that Park experiences as an immigrant. This dual reality creates two worlds for Park and increases his sense of uncertainty with regard to his place in society. While he constantly feels like an outsider looking in, he also feels like he belongs to neither world.

Chang-Rae Lee is also a first-generation Korean American immigrant. He immigrated to America at the early age of three. Themes of identity, race, and cultural alienation pervade his works. His interests in these themes no doubt stem from his first-hand experience as a kid growing up in a Korean household while going to an American school. Lee is also author of A Gesture Life and Aloft. The protagonists are similar in that they deal with labels placed on them based on race, color, and language. Consequently, all of these characters struggle to belong in America.

Lee's novels address differences within a nation's mix of race, religion, and history, and the necessity of assimilation between cultures. In his works and through his characters, Lee shows us both the difficulties and the subtleties of the immigrant experience in America. He urges us to consider the role of borders and to consider why the idea of opening up one's borders is so frightening. In an ever-changing world in which cultures are becoming more intermingled, the meaning of identity must be constantly redefined, especially when the security of belonging to a place is becoming increasingly elusive. As our world grows smaller with increasing technological advances, these themes in Lee's novels become even more pertinent.

The Channel Tunnel is an underwater tunnel that passes through the English Channel and connects England and France. Work on the Tunnel began in 1987 despite much controversy. Many protests took place due to concerns for the environment, fears about terrorism, and the risk of fire. Construction required five thousand workers to dig undersea in the Channel at all hours of the day using laser-guided Tunnel Boring machines. These machines cost around 7.5 million pounds and could construct up to one thousand meters of tunnel a month. Two tunnels were built for passenger trains, with a smaller service tunnel was built in between for maintenance and an escape route in the case of emergency. Costs to construct the Tunnel were much higher than anticipated, and loans were required to finance its construction. After many delays and additional costs, the tunnel was finally opened in 1995. The concrete tunnel's overall length is 50 kilometers, with 40 km being undersea. The journey time from England to France is only 35 minutes, and trains run every 20 minutes. Travel between London and Brussels takes three hours and 10 minutes. In its first year of service, the Tunnel accounted for 40% of the traffic across the Channel and had a turnover of 299 million pounds. Nonetheless, it suffered a huge loss of 925 million pounds due to the high interest the Tunnel company had to pay on the 8.1 billion pounds borrowed from banks.

15.  Given that one Tunnel Boring machine could build 1,000 m of tunnel a month and the Tunnel is 50 km long, how fast could the Tunnel have been built using two Tunnel Boring machines if there had been no delays?

  1. About 1 year
  2. Just under 5 years
  3. Just over 4 years
  4. Just over 2 years

The $100 Bill

Samantha pedaled quickly, glancing down at her watch as often as her balance would allow. The clock’s face read 10:57, sending a spike of panic shooting up her spine. She bent further over her bike, willing her legs to go faster. She screeched to a stop in front of a large restaurant bearing a bright blue, neon sign, her ears ringing, sweat breaking out on her skin. She hurriedly locked her bike to the lone pole positioned in front of the building, before pushing her way through the heavy glass front doors.

“You’re late.” Samantha stopped short, turning to face her boss. She was greeted with a stern face, her boss’ lips a thin line. She shook her head in apology. “I’m sorry, Paul. My bike’s tires were flat, and I forgot my I.D. badge, so I had to turn back—“ Paul held up his hand, cutting her off. “Just don’t let it happen again.”

Samantha threw her hair into a ponytail, hoping her shift would prove more successful as the day wore on. She nearly ran to her first table of the day, plastered a smile on her face, and greeted her first customers of the day. She responded to their questions politely, though her mind was still occupied by Paul’s disappointed expression as she ran in the door. Despite her initial mistakes, Samantha worked hard to remain chipper and upbeat, answering her customers’ questions to the best of her ability, forcing herself to smile when her eyes began to glaze over with tears. As her first customers left, she caught the eye of the elderly gentleman with the group. He winked, and walked through the doors. Confused, Samantha began to gather the dishes from the table and there, staring up at her, was a crisp $100 bill. She let a tear roll down her cheek. Her day had just gotten better.

As young children, we are taught to read. From a tender young age, we are read to at bedtime, serenaded by a mother or father’s voice. As time goes on, we learn to read ourselves. In kindergarten, or even before, we come to understand the meaning of words on a page and how they are significant. As children grow up, however, many fail to foster a love of or appreciation for reading, instead labeling it as a school-time activity or a source of stress. Reading comes to be regarded as harrowing, tedious, and for many is only engaged in for the purpose of receiving a passing grade. However, those who wish to develop their communication skills may want to take a closer look; reading regularly has been shown to not only improve one’s writing skills, but to also assist in verbal communication and increase understanding of verbal and facial cues. Reading, then, should not be regarded as a chore or an insurmountable obstacle, but as a crucial aspect of learning how to deal with others and how to express oneself.

41.  Of these options, which title best fits this passage?

A.    Reading in Communication: An Essential Skill

B.     How to Read Properly

C.     The Importance of Learning to Read

A.    distressing, difficult

B.     foolhardy, uncouth

C.     simple, easy

D.    troubled, juvenile

43.  What is the author’s purpose in writing this passage?

A.    to discourage students from learning to read

B.     to encourage students to write

C.     to convey the importance of reading regularly

D.    to reprimand parents for not teaching their children to read

Hibernation
One of the mysteries in the world of nature is hibernation. By what process, with the coming of autumn, do some animals go into the deep sleep that sees them through the unfavorable environment of winter? The question has baffled mankind for centuries.
The little brown bat selects a cave or the hollow of a tree in which to sleep throughout the winter, hanging by its feet. The woodchuck waddles along the dark tunnels of its underground home to find the highest and largest chamber, there to snuggle down and sleep on a bed of dried grasses. The badger holes up in his tunnel below the frost line to go into a deep sleep.
Scientists describe hibernation as a state of being that borders between simple sleep and death. Ordinary sleep, the 8 hours you get each night, is a temporary and brief period of relaxation during which on ly some of the body processes slow down. Hibernation, on the other hand, is a kind of sleep in which nearly all the body processes slow down for a long period of time.
Hibernation thus enables some animals to survive months during which food is scarce and the weather inhospitable. If these animals had to maintain their body at a normal rate of activity during such periods, they wouldsoon die of starvation. During hibernation, almost all body movement is suspended. The life processes functionat a very slow pace, barely enough to maintain life. The blood temperature lowers as the chemical activity of the animal’s body becomes geared to its available energy.
The true hibernators are warm-blooded mammals such as woodchucks and ground squirrels, cold-blooded reptiles, and amphibians such as frogs and toads. The more adaptive animals do not hibernate. They either migrate to another location to obtain food, store food, or “live by their wits.”

Question 1:
Which of the following is a characteristic of hibernation as discussed in the third paragraph?
A. It involves a brief period of relaxation.
B. It is not a kind of sleep.
C. It slows down most body processes.
D. It is not a normal state of being.

Question 2:
Which of the following statements is supported by the second paragraph?
A. A majority of mammals hibernate.
B. Mammals hibernate in a variety of ways.
C. Small mammals are more likely to hibernate than larger animals.
D. Most mammals that hibernate do so for the same duration during winter months.

Question 3:
Which of the following is the author’s purpose for writing this passage?
A. To entertain readers with a story about hibernation

B. To inform readers about the purpose of hibernation
C. To persuade readers to research more about hibernation
D. To describe the effect of hibernation on the environment

Question 4
Which of the following text structures is used in the second paragraph?
A. Sequence
B. Problem-solution
C. Description
D. Cause-effect

Question 5
This passage is an example of which of the following writing styles?
A Narrative

Question 1

The next five questions are based on this passage. 

Compared to most of our country’s other Founding Fathers, Thomas Paine is essentially unknown. In fact, there are many Americans who have never even heard of him. Paine was born in 1737, the son of a corseter – a tailor specializing in corsets and other undergarments – and grew up in rural Thetford, England. As a young man, Paine worked as a corseter, sailor, and minister, but found his true calling when he moved to the British colonies in America. 

Paine first gained notoriety as the editor of Pennsylvania Magazine and, as political turmoil engulfed the colonies, he became more prominent. In 1776, Paine anonymously published a book called Common Sense that argued forcefully for American independence from Britain. The book’s popularity spread like wildfire; soon there were 200,000 copies in circulation. Once the war began, Paine published a series of pamphlets called The Crisis. These, in the midst of a bloody war, helped keep up the morale of the troops. Thomas Paine is also credited with conceiving the name “The United States of America.” 

Thomas Paine was an extremely talented writer; Thomas Jefferson and John Adams drew heavily on his work when drafting the Declaration of Independence. Later in life, Paine wrote other, highly controversial works. He was even exiled from England and imprisoned in France for his writings. In 1796, Paine did his part to inspire what would become Social Security. He suggested a system of social insurance for the young and the elderly in his last great work, Agrarian Justice.

Paine was one of the Founding Fathers.

B

Paine was forgotten after his lifetime.

C

The Declaration of Independence could not have been written without Paine’s contribution.

Question 6

The next two questions are based on this passage. 

The Louis Lumière camera launched in Paris on December 28th, 1895. It was called the Cinématographe and it was the first camera manageable enough to bring out of the studio and into the world. Its competitor, at the time, was still confined to a studio in New Jersey and required several men to move. The Lumière camera weighed only 5 kilograms and could be carried in a small suitcase. An audience of journalists, theatre directors, and friends viewed the first show. After that, the public shows commenced. 

Louis Lumière, often considered the founder of documentary film, was the son of Antoine Lumière, a painter who had turned to portrait photography, photographing well-to-do clients against backdrops he painted. Louis and his brother Auguste received a technical education, but Louis left school at an early age because of severe headaches, and took up laboratory work for his father. While still a teenager, he invented a new procedure for preparing photographic plates, which gave such fine results that the Lumières began to manufacture plates for others. Soon the family sold the photo studio and on the outskirts of Lyon organized a factory of plates. Louis designed and oversaw everything. By 1895, the factory employed more than 300 workers, produced fifteen million dry plates annually, and was a leader in photographic equipment. During this time, his father was semi-retired, spending his days painting, and the two brothers were consistently working on new inventions. Although they worked as a team on nearly everything, Louis was considered the sole inventor of the Cinématographe, having solved its problems during a night of insomnia in 1894. 

The Cinématographe was not only small and light; it also had the miraculous capability of filming, projecting, and printing. This meant that an operator could serve as a complete production crew: he or she could be sent anywhere in the world to give showings, shoot new films by day, develop films in his or her hotel room, and show them to the public that very night. Because of this, the Lumière’s sent dozens of operators to film and present shows across Europe, Russia, and Great Britain. 

Cinématographe’s debuts in London and New York were similar to that of Paris—slow at first, but eventually a shocking success. Cinema quickly became part of music hall programs and Cinématographe shows gained permanent residence.

  
Which of the following technological developments would most closely resemble the innovation of the Cinématographe?

A

A fishing boat that travels faster and on less fuel per trip, greatly enhancing the cost-effectiveness of fishing companies and the availability of fish in inland markets.

B

An automated clothing machine that fits in the back of a truck and can produce complete outfits in minutes from designs created on its computer, greatly reducing the time needed to create custom-tailored outfits for consumers.

C

A camera that can survive atmospheric re-entry, greatly increasing the number of pictures of outer space possible per taxpayer dollar spent.

D

A factory assembly line requiring only two operators that can produce luxury vehicles inexpensively, greatly increasing the market penetration of luxury vehicles.

Question 11

“You want to be very careful about lying; otherwise you are nearly sure to get caught. Once caught, you can never again be in the eyes to the good and the pure, what you were before. Many a young person has injured himself permanently through a single clumsy and ill finished lie, the result of carelessness born of incomplete training. Some authorities hold that the young ought not to lie at all. I do maintain, and I believe I am right, that the young ought to be temperate in the use of this great art until practice and experience shall give them that confidence, elegance, and precision which alone can make the accomplishment graceful and profitable. Patience, diligence, painstaking attention to detail—these are requirements; these in time, will make the student perfect; upon these only, may he rely as the sure foundation for future eminence.” – Mark Twain

Question 21

The next three questions are based on this passage. 

A spacesuit consists of several pieces. The Hard Upper Torso covers the astronaut's chest. The arm assembly covers the arms and connects to the gloves. The helmet and Extravehicular Visor Assembly are designed to protect the astronaut's head while still allowing him or her to see as much as possible. 

The Lower Torso Assembly covers the astronaut's legs and feet. The flexible parts of the suit are made from several layers of material. The layers perform different functions, from keeping oxygen within the spacesuit to protecting from space dust. 

Underneath the spacesuit, astronauts wear a Liquid Cooling and Ventilation Garment. Tubes are woven into this tight-fitting piece of clothing that covers the entire body except for the head, hands and feet. Water flows through these tubes to keep the astronaut cool during spacewalks. 

On the back of the spacesuit is a backpack called the Primary Life Support Subsystem. This backpack contains the oxygen that astronauts breathe during spacewalks. It also removes carbon dioxide that astronauts exhale. The backpack also provides electricity for the suit. A fan moves the oxygen through the spacesuit and life support systems, and a water tank holds the cooling water that flows through the Liquid Cooling and Ventilation Garment.

Question 31

The next six questions are based on this passage. 

Jonathan Swift’s dark view of humanity is expressed in his novel Gulliver’s Travels(1726). Swift believed that society, which is meant to protect people from inequality and injustice, actually encourages the worst evils, promotes immorality, and allows injustices to occur. In Gulliver’s Travels, Swift asks whether “civilization” is only an elaborate cover for the lowest forms of human behavior. 

Swift raises this question through satire, a literary form which he brings to perfection in Gulliver’s Travels. Following in the great tradition of classical satirists, Swift uses Gulliver’s Travels to point out the underlying ridiculousness of the society around him. In one section of Gulliver’s Travels, for example, Gulliver describes his native England to the king of a land of giants. Gulliver talks enthusiastically to the giant king about the class system, laws, constitution, military glory, and history of his homeland. After carefully listening to Gulliver’s speech, however, the king proceeds to point out the many shortcomings of Gulliver’s native land. Gulliver is unable to come up with adequate responses to the criticism. He can only stand there in embarrassed silence as the king eventually concludes that the institutions of the human world should be condemned.

  
The author uses quotation marks around the word “civilization” in the first paragraph to convey

A

skepticism

B

wit

C

anger

D

studiousness

Following in the great tradition of classical satirists, Swift uses Gulliver’s Travels to point out the underlying ridiculousness of the society around him. In one section of Gulliver’s Travels, for example, Gulliver describes his native England to the king of a land of giants. Gulliver talks enthusiastically to the giant king about the class system, laws, constitution, military glory, and history of his homeland. After carefully listening to Gulliver’s speech, however, the king proceeds to point out the many shortcomings of Gulliver’s native land. Gulliver is unable to come up with adequate responses to the criticism. He can only stand there in embarrassed silence as the king eventually concludes that the institutions of the human world should be condemned.
