In addition to studying the skies, Halley was alsodeeply interested in exploring the unknown depths of the oceans. One of his lesser-knownaccomplishments that was quite remarkable was his design for a diving bell that facilitatedexploration of the watery depth.The diving bell that Halley design had a major advantage over the diving bells that were in useprior to his. Earlier diving bells could only make use of the air contained within the bell itself, sodivers had to surface when the air inside the bell ran low. Halley’s bell was an improvement in thatit allowed for an additional supply of fresh air that enabled a crew of divers to remain underwater forseveral hours.The diving contraption that Halley designed was in the shape of a bell that measured three feetacross the top and five feet across the bottom and could hold several divers comfortably; it wasopen at the bottom so that divers could swim in and out at will. The bell was built of wood, whichwas first heavily tarred to make it water repellent and was then covered with a half-ton sheet of leadto make bell sank to the bottom.The air inside the bell was not the only source of air for divers to breath, and it was thisimprovement that made Halley’s bell superior to its predecessors. In addition to the air already inthe bell, air was also supplied to the divers from a lead barrel that was lowered to the ocean floorclose to the bell itself. Air flowed through a leather pipe from the lead barrel on the ocean floor tothe bell. The divers could breathe the air from a position inside the bell, or he could move aroundoutside the bell wearing a diving suit that consisted of a lead bell-shaped helmet with a glass
viewing window and a leather body suit with a leather pipe carrying fresh air from the diving bell tothe helmet.Question 6: Which of the following best expresses the subject of this passage?A.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet toindicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 56 to 65Because use writing has become so important in our culture, we sometimes think of it as morereal than speech. A little thought, however, will show why speech is primary and writing issecondary in language. Human beings have been writing (as far as we can tell from survivingevidence) for at least 5000 years; but they have been talking for much longer, doubtless ever sincethere have been human beings.When writing did develop, it was derived from and represented speech, although imperfectly.Even today, there are spoken languages that have no written from. Furthermore, we all learn to talkwell before we learn to write; any human child who is not severely handicapped physically ormentally will learn to talk: a normal human being cannot be prevented from doing so. On the otherhand, it takes a special effort to learn to write; in the past many intelligent and useful members ofsociety did not acquire the skill, and even today many who speak languages with writing systemsnever learn to read or write, while some who learn the rudiments of those skills do so onlyimperfectly.To affirm the primacy of speech over writing is not, however, to disparage to latter. Oneadvantage writing has over speech is that it is more permanent and makes possible the records thatany civilization must have. Thus, if speaking makes us human, writing makes us civilized.Question 56: The word doubtless in the passage mostly means_____A. almost doubtfully B. almost uncertainly C. almost certainly D. almost impossiblyQuestion 57: In order to show that learning requires effort, the author gives the exampleof_____A. severely handicapped children B. intelligent people who could not writeC. people who speak many languages D. people who learn the rudiments of speechQuestion 58: The following statements are true EXCEPT_____A.
