            The farmer worked so hard that at last he became very ill. As he lay on his bed, he thought to himself, “Soon I’ll die and what will become of my lazy sons? If they don’t work, they’ll become so poor that they’ll not have even rice to eat.”
            So he called his sons to him and said,” My sons, I’m dying. What I have I leave to you. All that I have is in our field. Dig it and you will find treasure.”
            Some time after this old farmer died. His sons buried him and then began to look for the treasure.

The following text is for questions 24 to 27.

CHICAGO. People with breathing problems that disrupt their sleep were less tired after three weeks of treatment with a breathing device compared to those treated with a placebo, US researches said on Saturday.
            The findings show that regular use of treatment with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) masks reduce fatigue caused by obstructive sleep apnea, a chronic disorder that affects 12 million Americans.
            Sleep apnea raises the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, irregular heartbeat and diabetes.
            It occurs when soft tissue in the back of the throat collapses during sleep, blocking the airway and causing the brain to rouse the sleeper, who gasps for air – a cycle that can occur as many as 30 times in an hour.
            CPAP disrupts this cycle by providing a steady stream of air through a mask that keeps the airway open during sleep
             Companies that make CPAP treatments include Graymark Healthcare and ResMed Inc.

During the summer, we went to the beach every day. We stayed at a lovely motel right on the beach.

For lunch we would eat something light like sandwiches and fruit. In the afternoon we would return to the pool area and sit in the sun for a while. At night we would take long walks along the beach or visit some friends who lived at 520 Volusia Avenue in Daytona Beach.
          Many people from out of town stayed at the motel. Like us, they had been coming to that same motel since 2005. Most of them were from Ohio.

The following text is for questions 32 to 36.

Parasitic plants depend entirely on their hosts for their nourishment. They have no green leaves and so cannot photosynthesize food. Instead they bore into the tissues of other plants and take the food they need.
            Parasitic plants are those that live on other plants without giving any benefit to their hosts in any way. In some cases, parasites cause harm to their hosts. For example, parasitic fungi cause wheat and beans rust, potato and tomato blight, apple scab, and downing mildew of grapes.
            Dodders are one of the largest groups of parasitic plants. They have long, twining red or yellow stems, with tiny scale like leaves. Most dodders live off small plants, such as nettles or gorse, but some are parasites of trees. A young dodder seedling quickly twines round a host plant, and buries its suckers (haustoria) into it in many places as it can.
            Broomrapes and toothworts are also common parasites. Broomrapes attack such plants as clover and daisies, while toothworts are parasites of trees, such as hazel. Both of these parasites attack the roots of their hosts.
            One of the most extra-ordinary parasites in Rafflesia. Its huge flower, the largest in the world, is the only visible part of the plant. The remainder consists of threads buried in the host’s roots.

The following text is for questions 37 to 41.

Nuclear power is generated by uranium which is a metal mined in various part of the world. The first large-scale nuclear power station was opened at Calder Hall Cumbria, England, in 1956.
           Some military ships and submarines have nuclear power plant for engines. Nuclear power produces around 11% of the world’s energy needed, and produces huge amounts energy. It causes no pollution as you’d get when burning fossil fuels.
            The advantages of nuclear as follows:
  1. It costs about the same as coal, so it is not expensive to make
  2. It doesn’t produce smoke or carbon dioxide, so it doesn’t contribute to the greenhouse effect.
  3. It produces huge amounts of energy from small amount of uranium.
  4. It produces small amounts of waste.
  5. It is reliable.
            On the other hand, nuclear power is very, very dangerous. It must be sealed up and buried for many years to allow the radioactivity to die away. Furthermore, although it is reliable, a lot of money has to be spent on safety because if it does go wrong, a nuclear accident can be a major disaster.
            People are increasingly concerned about this. In the 1990’s nuclear power was the fastest growing source of power in many parts of the world. In 2005, it was the second slowest growing.

      A. Nuclear is reliable
      B. Nuclear power is safe

The following text is for questions 42 to 46.

Peter J.D’ Adamo is a naturopath who treats illness by such means as changing the food that people eat, and tries to help the body to cure itself without the use of dangerous drugs. In this book “Eat Right 4 Your Type”, he writes that our blood type determines what food should be included or avoid in our diet and what food is neutral. He also writes that type O blood is the original blood type.
            On the other hand, Mr. Soekirman, a professor in nutrition science at Bogor Agricultural University asserts that there is no consensus in the scientific community that O is the original blood type. He also says that there is no research published to back up D’ Adamo’s theories.
            He, however, does agree that appropriate diet varies from individual to individual according to age, weight, condition of health, climate, and amount of activity.
