Different regions have different rates of population growth, but in the 20 th century, the world saw the biggest increase in its population in human history due to medical advances and massive increase in agricultural productivity made by the Green Revolution. In 2000, the United Nations estimated that the world’s population was then growing at the rate of 1.14% or about 75 million people per year. According to data from the CIA’s 2005 - 2006 World Fact books, the world human population currently increases by 203,800 people every day. The 2007 CIA Fact Book increased this to 211,090 people every day. Globally, the population growth rate has been steadily declining from its peak of 2.19% in 1963, but growth remains high in the Middle East and Sub - Saharan Africa. In some countries there is negative population growth, especially in Central and Eastern Europe (mainly due to fertility rates) and Southern Africa (due to the high number of HIV related deaths). Within the next decade, Japan and some countries in Western Europe also are expected to encounter negative population growth due to sub - replacement fertility rates. Population growth which exceeds the carrying capacity of an area or environment results in overpopulation. Conversely, such areas may be considered under - populated if the population is not large enough to maintain an economic system. 61: The world’s population increased the most in the 20th century because of…...

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 sentence from 66 to 75 . Harvard University, today recognized as part of the top echelon of the world’s universities, came from very inauspicious and humble beginnings. This oldest of American universities was founded in 1636, just sixteen years after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth. Included in the Puritan emigrants to the Massachusetts colony during this period were more than 100 graduates of England’s prestigious Oxford and Cambridge universities, and these university graduates in the New World were determined that their sons would have the same educational opportunities that they* themselves had had. Because of this support in the colony for an institution of higher learning, the General Court of Massachusetts appropriated 400 pounds* for a college in October of 1636 and early the following year decided on a parcel of land for the school; this land was in an area called Newtown, which was later renamed Cambridge after its English cousin* and is the site of the present - day university. When a young minister named John Harvard, who came from the neighboring town of Charlestown, died from tuberculosis in 1638, he willed half of his estate of 1,700 pounds to the fledgling* college. In spite of the fact that only half of the bequest was actually paid, the General Court named the college after the minister in appreciation for what he had done. The amount of the bequest many not have been large, particularly by today’s standards, but it was more than the General Court had found it necessary to appropriate in order to open the college. Henry Duster was appointed the first president of Harvard in 1640, and it should be noted that in addition to serving as president, he was also the entire faculty, with an entering freshman class of four students. Although the staff did expand somewhat*, for the first century of its existence the entire teaching staff consisted of the president and three or four tutors. 66: The main idea of this passage is that A.

Probably the most important factor governing the severity of forest fires is weather. Hot, dry weather lowers the moisture content of fuels. Once a fire has started, wind is extremely critical because it influences the oxygen supply and the rate of spread. Forest type and forest conditions are also important factors. For example, fire is more likely to occur in conifers than in hardwoods; slashcovered or brushy areas are especially hazardous because the rate at which combustion consumes fuel is proportional to fuel volume and surface area. Some fires are caused by lightning; others are caused by people. Those caused by people may be accidental or intentional (incendiary). The causes of fire in the United States show large regional differences. In the Rocky Mountains more than 70 percent of the fires are caused by lightning, whereas incendiary fires amount to only about 1 percent. In contrast, more than 40 percent of the fires in the South are incendiary, whereas lightning causes only 1 percent. 76: In this passage the author's main purpose is to A. inform B. argue C. persuade D. entertain 77: Which of the following best describes the organization of the passage? A. A description of the conditions affecting forest fires is followed by a description of the causes. B. Several generalizations about forest fires are followed by a series of conclusions. C. A comparison and contrast of the factors governing forest fires is followed by a list of causes. D. An analysis of factors related to forest fires is followed by an argument against the causes of fires. 78: It can be concluded from the passage that A. There are more fires in hardwood forests than in pine forests B. fire prevention techniques vary from region to region C. winter is the worst season for fires D. there are not many people living in the Rocky Mountain area 79: The paragraph following this passage would most likely be about A. the various uses of hardwood B. methods of controlling fires C. the causes of hot, dry weather D. the geographical differences between the Rocky Mountain area and the Southern states 80: The author of this passage would most likely be A. a biologist B. a meteorologist C. a historian D. a forest ranger ----------------------------------------------- ----------- The end ---------- Page 6/6 - Code 182
