Questions 66 – 75 (2.0 points - 0.2/ each) Read the passage below and choose the best answer to each question (Early peoples had no need of engineering works to supply their water. Hunters and nomads camped near natural sources of fresh water_66), and populations were so sparse that pollution of the water supply was not a serious problem. After community life developed and agricultural villages became urban centres, the problem of supplying water became important for inhabitants of a city, as well as for irrigation of the farms surrounding the city. Irrigation works were known in prehistoric times, and before 2000 BC the rulers of Babylonia and Egypt constructed systems of dams and canals to impound the flood waters of the Euphrates and Nile rivers, controlling floods and providing irrigation water throughout the dry season. Such irrigation canals also supplied water for domestic purposes. (The first people to consider the sanitation of their water supply were the ancient Romans_68), who constructed a vast system of aqueducts to bring the clean waters of the Apennine Mountains into the city and built basins and filters along these mains to ensure the clarity of the water. The construction of such extensive water-supply systems declined (when the Roman Empire disintegrated, and for several centuries local springs and wells_69) formed the main source of domestic and industrial water.
  4. (The invention of the force pump in England in the middle of the 16th century greatly extended the possibilities of development of water-supply systems. In London, the first pumping waterworks was completed in 1562; it pumped river water to a reservoir about 37 m above the level of the River Thames and from the reservoir the water was distributed by gravity, through lead pipes, to buildings_71) in the vicinity. (Increased per-capital demand_73) has coincided with water shortages in many countries. Southeast England, for example, receives only 14 per cent of Britain's rainfall, has 30 per cent of its population, and has experienced declining winter rainfall since the 1980s. (In recent years a great deal of interest has been shown in the conversion of seawater to fresh water to provide drinking water for very dry areas, such as the Middle East. Several different processes, including distillation, electrodialysis, reverse osmosis, and direct-freeze evaporation_74), have been developed for this purpose. Some of these processes have been used in large facilities in the United States. Although these processes are successful, the cost of treating seawater is much higher than that for treating fresh water. 66. Early peoples didn’t need water supply engineering works because ___. A. their community life had already developed B. natural sources of fresh water nearby were always available C. there was almost no dry season in prehistoric times D. they had good ways to irrigate their farms 67. The word “impound” in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to “___”. A. supply B. irrigate C. provide D. drain 68. Clean water supply was first taken into consideration by ___. A. the English people B. the ancient Romans C. the Egyptians D. the US people 69. For several centuries after the disintegration of the Roman Empire, the main source of water supply was from ___. A. springs and wellsB. systems of aqueducts C. dams and canals D. water pipes 70. The word “mains” in paragraph 1 could best be replaced by “___”. A. lands B. areas C. pipes D. rivers 71. Which of the following is NOT true about London’s water supply in the middle of the 16th century? A. Water was pumped from the River Thames. B. Water was stored in a reservoir. C. Water ran from the reservoir to buildings. D. Water was conducted through canals. 72. The word “vicinity” in paragraph 2 refers to ___. A. the cities in South-east England B. the areas along the River Thames C. the neighborhood around a reservoir D. the region where industry developed 73. One of the causes of water shortages in South-east England is ___. A. water pollution B. increased demand C. water-supply system decline D. water evaporation 74.

In the passage, the author mainly discusses ___. A. the development of water supplyB. the results of water shortages C. the water pumping systems D. the fresh water storage Part 3: Questions 76 – 85 (2.0 points - 0.2/ each) Read the text and fill in one word which best fits each gap.
  5. For a long time in the past photography was not regarded (76) an art. It was simply a skill and it was criticized for being too mechanical and not creative enough. At last, however, photography is now accepted as a unique (77) very important form of art. The photograph's claim to be (78) objective record of reality is now seriously challenged, and the important function of photography in modern-day society is consequently (79) threat. The threat has suddenly become all the more serious as more and more photographers are turning to the new technology offer (80) computers offer.
