Read the text and choose the correct answer for every question below.<br />Questions 11-17 are based on the text below.<br />New York (city), the largest city in the United States, the home of the United Nations,<br />and the center of global finance, communications, and business. New York City is unusual<br />among cities because of its high residential density, its extraordinarily diverse population,<br />its hundreds of tall office and apartment buildings, its thriving central business district, its<br />extensive public transportation system, and its more than 400 distinct neighborhoods. The<br />133 Unit Review Semester 1<br />city’s concert houses, museums, galleries, and theaters constitute an ensemble of cultural<br />richness rivaled by few cities. In 2000 the population of the city of New York was 8,008,278;<br />the population of the metropolitan region was 21,199,865. New York City consists of five<br />boroughs they are Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, The Bronx, and Manhattan.<br />There are so many attractive places in the city. One of its most popular landmarks is<br />the statue of liberty. It is a symbol of freedom for many, was one of the first sights to welcome<br />immigrants arriving in the United States. The statue stands 93 m (305 ft) tall on Liberty<br />Island in New York Harbor. It was designed by French sculptor Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi<br />and is a gift from France commemorating the first centennial of U.S. independence from<br />Britain.<br />New York’s 250 museums cater to every specialty and every taste. It has museums<br />in such fields as natural history, broadcasting, fire-fighting, crafts, and ethnic cultures. As<br />the world’s greatest art center, New York City has more than 400 galleries and is a mecca<br />for artists, art dealers, and collectors. Madison Avenue between 57th and 86th Streets is<br />the most important locale for galleries, but dozens of others are located in SoHo (south of<br />Houston Street) and adjoining neighborhoods.<br />New York also has a famous botanical garden. It is called Brooklyn Botanic Garden, 21-<br />hectare (52-acre) botanic garden, located in the borough of Brooklyn, in New York City. The<br />garden includes such attractions as the Children’s Garden, the first of its kind in the world.<br />Taken from: Microsoft ® Encarta ® 2007. © 1993-2006 Microsoft Corporation.

South of Hackensack<br />Questions 18-23 are based on the following text.<br />Should Americans be Forced to Use Public Transportation?<br />by Jack Davis<br />First, let me define what the question is and isn’t asking. It isn’t asking if we should we<br />all abandon cars right now, nor is it asking if we should abandon them completely, nor is it<br />asking if every American should do so. It is asking whether some Americans should have to<br />take public transit some of the time, and I would say yes.<br />Oil use and pollution aside, in some cities like Los Angeles and New York there just<br />isn’t room for any more roads, so in order for large cities to grow, they need more people<br />to take public transit or risk permanent traffic jam. One bus can safely hold 40 people, so<br />even at half capacity that’s nearly 20 cars’ worth of space in traffic cleared up, and nearly<br />20 parking spaces that don’t need to be built.<br />There are a lot of people that can take public transit with little inconvenience but<br />simply don’t because they never have in the past. If residents in areas with plenty of transit<br />had to buy transit passes as part of their property taxes then they would have little excuse<br />not to bus occasionally. A number of universities already bundle a ‘U-Pass’ with their tuition<br />fees, forcing their students to take the bus. When given the chance the majority of those<br />students have voted to keep these programs.<br />A similar system in apartments where a portion of the tenants are not issued parking<br />spaces in exchange for a discount on their rent would also be forcing people to use public<br />transit. This is already being done with the assignment of one community car to several<br />apartment tenants that arrange a schedule for the car, and this program gets many positive<br />reviews.<br />So yes, I would say that Americans should be forced to use public transit, as Americans<br />whom are already forced to do so find that it works well for them.<br />Taken from: www.helium.com<br />135 Unit Review Semester 1<br />18.

One day, when he went to drink water in<br />a river, one of his feet got stuck into the damp mushy mud of the river. He tried a lot to get out<br />136 Interlanguage: English for Senior High School Students XI<br />of the mud, but didn’t achieve. He had to lie without food for days because he didn’t find any<br />help. On one fortunate day, a kind jackal came to drink water from the river. When he saw<br />the lion, he went closer to the lion and said, “What is the matter? Why are you resting here?”<br />The lion narrated him the pathetic story. The Jackal instantly made a way out from the<br />sand but the lion was unable to move his feet. As he was set in the same posture for last<br />several days, his body became stiff. The jackal understood the condition of the lion and<br />helped him to get out of the mud with an extra effort. The Lion was really thankful to jackal<br />for his kind help. He was very happy to get free after so many days.<br />The Lion appreciated the effort made by the jackal. He offered the jackal to live close<br />to him and also promised to give food to him whenever he caught food. The jackal accepted<br />the offer and started living with the lion. Thus, they lived happily sharing the food. With the<br />passing time, they expanded their families. The lion had cubs and the jackal had kid jackals.<br />Both, the lion and the jackal were passing their days happily. They didn’t have any idea that<br />their friendship was not liked by their families.<br />One day after a long time, the lioness, lady of the lion’s house, told her cubs that she<br />didn’t like the amity between the jackal and her husband. The cubs passed the message to<br />the kid jackals. The kids complained the matter to the lady jackal. The lady jackal passed<br />the complaint to her husband.<br />The jackal went to the Lion and asked,” I helped you without any thought in return.<br />You had asked me to live with you, so I started living with you. Now, if you don’t want me to<br />live with you, you should have told me yourself. What did you involve your wife and cubs to<br />convey this? “. The Lion was shocked to hear such words. He said, “My dear friend, what are<br />you saying? I don’t find any problem with you or your friendship”. He assured the jackal that<br />he had no such ill-feelings for the friendship between them.<br />The Lion also assured that he would talk to the lioness and solve the whole matter. The<br />jackal was intelligent and understood the situation. He said to the lion, “Dear friend, I know<br />you are sincere, but our families could not exactly respond the same level of friendship. So,<br />let us stay apart and meet often as friends. We could also hunt together. It would be better,<br />if our families stay apart”. The Lion agreed to the proposal with a heavy heart.<br />The two families parted from each other as friends. The Jackal and the Lion continued<br />to share the friendship. They often met each other and hunt together. Thus, the two friends<br />shared a healthy friendship throughout their life.<br />Taken from: www.culturalindia.net<br />24.
