Read the following passage  and choose the best answer to each question. Rock Band
Two years ago, our 14-year-old son, Ben, asked us for a set of drums for his birthday. At first, we were very much against the idea because of the noise. ‘It’s better than watching television or playing computer games in my free time,’ Ben argued, ‘and it’ll keep me out of trouble.’ In the end we gave in. ‘All right,’ we said, ‘but you must consider the rest of the family and the neighbours when you play.’
That was just the beginning. Because drums are not the easiest instruments to transport, the other members of Ben’s band started appearing at out home with their guitars and other electrical instruments. And so, for several hours a week, the house shakes to the noise of their instruments and their teenage singing.
At least Ben’s hobby has been good for our health: whenever the band start practising, my husband and I go out for a long walk. And I must admit that, although their music may sound a little strange, they are a friendly and polite group of young men. I cannot judge their musical skill – after all I didn’t expect my parents’ generation to like the same music as I did when I was a teenager – but they do play regularly in
 local clubs for young people. Our main worry is that they won’t spend enough time on their school work because of their musical
activities, though this hasn’t happened yet. I am always stressing to Ben how important his studies are. But one thing is certain –

They can leave their
equipment there.
329
What does the writer say about the band members?
Their influence on her son worries her.
Their taste in music is different from hers.
They play their instruments well.
They avoid any contact with her.
330
What might the writer say to her son?
Your teacher has just
phoned. He wants to know why you weren’t at school today.
When are you playing at the club next? Dad and I would love to come along again.
If you don’t know what to do with
your self, there’s a good programme on
the television in a few minutes.
Are you sure you’ve finished your homework?
It’s more important than band practice.
Read the following passage  and choose the best answer to each question.
Craigie Aitchision”
The painter Craighe Aitchison was born in Scotland. He came to London intending to study law, but went to art school instead. There he found the traditional drawing classes difficult, but still kept on painting. In his late twenties he was given money by the Italian government to study art, and became interested in early Italian artists, which show in some of his work. He loved the greens and browns of Italian fields and the clear light there, and wanted to put this light into his paintings. This led him to paint colours thinly one on top of another from light to dark, but he insists he’s never sure the results will be. He says, ‘It’s a secret – because I don’t know myself. I don’t start by painting yellow, knowing I’m going to put anything on top. ‘ Like most talented people, Aitchision makes it sound easy. ‘ Anyone can do the colours – you
can buy them. I simply notice what you put the colours next to.’ Unlike some artists, he never does drawings before he starts a painting, as
he feels that if he did, he might get bored and not do the painting afterwards. Instead, Aitchison changes his paintings many times before
they are finished. This explains why his favourite models are people who don’t ask to see their pictures while he’s painting them. ‘If I feel

335
What might a visitor at an exhibition say about Atchison’s work?
I love his recent paintings of Scotland, which are very similar to a number of other Scottish painters.
You can still see the influence of his trip to Italy in some of these pictures.
You can tell he spent a lot of time drawing the picture before he started painting.
I wonder if his law training helps him at all, especially in the selling his work.
Read the following passage  and choose the best answer to each question. The young achiever  of the year
Kal Kaur Rai has always been interested in fashion and has just won the title of Young  Achiever of the year  at the Asian Business Awards. Ever since she was a child, she has drawn clothes and  designed patterns. She never told her hard-working parents, who own a supermarket, that she wanted to turn her hobby into a career. She thought they expected her to go into a more established business, so she went to university to do a management degree. After university, she moved to London and worked in an advertising agency. She had to attend industry events but couldn’t afford the designer clothes she liked. She started making skirts and tops for herself. When her friends saw her clothes, they asked her to make things for them. She then found a small shop in London  willing to take her designs on a sale or return basis. They were very popular and nothing came back. This encouraged her to leave her advertising job , take out a £20,000 loan and begin her own women-wear label. Kal’s parents were not angry about her career change and said they would support her, which really pleased her. Her clothes are now on sale
 in over 70 stores and her business has an income of over £500,000. Her clothes appear in fashion magazines, she designs for pop stars and

Being an older student
At 32, I have just finished my first year at university. As well as attending lectures regularly, I have had to learn to read books quickly and write long essays. I decided to go to university after fourteen years away from the classroom. As a secretary, although I was earning a reasonable amount of money. I was bored doing something where I hardly had to think. I became more and more depressed by the idea that I was stuck in the job. I was jealous of the students at the local university, who looked happy, carefree and full of hope, and part of something that I wanted to explore further. However, now that I’ve actually become a student I find it hard to mix with younger colleagues. They are always mistaking me for a lecturer because, although we are the same age, I know so much less than them. But I am glad of this opportunity to study because I know you need a qualification to get a  rewarding job, which is really important to me. Unlike most eighteen-year-olds, I much prefer a weekend with my books to one out partying. Then there are the normal student benefits of long  holidays and
theatre and  cinema discounts. I often have doubts about what I’ll do after university, but I hope that continuing my education at this late

If nobody in the United Kingdom smoked, what would happen to your pocket book? Everyone in the UK would be richer. The diseases connected to smoking are a big problem . Doctors think that the annual medical cost for lung cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses connected to smoking is between 12 and 35 million pounds. And smoking cost society money in other ways, between 27 and 61 billions pounds are spent each year:
1.               on sick days (when people don’t go to work)
2.               on wages that you don’t get when you don’t go to work, and 3. on work lost at the company when you are sick.
This money counts the wages from people who die of cancer at young age and stop paying taxes. This does not count fire started by cigarettes which kill fifteen hundreds people yearly and injure another four thousand. Smoking costs every man, woman and child in the UK from one hundred and ten to two hundred and fifty pounds each year in the lost work and wages. When you add another fifty to one hundred and fifty pounds yearly in insurance cost, that comes from one hundred and sixty to four hundred and ten pounds. If everyone
stopped smoking, a family of four could have up to one thousand six hundred and forty pounds a year or more. Of course smoking is not  going to stop overnight.
And NOT smoking will also cause problems, because people who don’t smoke will live longer, and so they will take money from the
government  when they are old. But they will also work for more years and pay more taxes. In the end , the value of a non-

Read the following passage  and choose the best answer to each question.
Last week I went to visit Atlantic College, an excellent private college in Wales. Unusually, it gives young people much needed experience of life outside the classroom, as well as the opportunity to study for their exams, The students, who are aged between 16 and 18 and come from all over the world, spend the morning studying. In the afternoon they go out and do a really useful activity, such as helping on the farm, looking after people with learning difficulties, or checking for pollution in rivers. One of the great things about Atlantic College students is that they come from many different social backgrounds and countries. As few can afford the fees of £20,000 over two years, grants are available. A quarter of the students are British and many of those can only attend because they receive government help. ‘I really admire the college for trying to encourage international understanding among young people’, as Barbara Molenkamp, a student from the Netherlands, said, ‘You learn to live with people and respect them, even the ones you don’t like. During the summer holidays my mother couldn’t believe how much less I argued with my sister.’
To sum up, Atlantic College gives its students an excellent education, using methods which really seem to work.

Read the following passage  and choose the best answer to each question.
For thousands of years, the ancient art form of Feng Shui has played a major role in Chinese life. Feng Shui means “wind and water” and it is based on an appreciation of the relationship between people and the environment. It involves changing the design of your living or working space to improve your fortune.
For instance, soon after a Hong Kong millionaire moved his business to a new skyscraper, his business began to do very badly. He immediately called in Feng Shui experts. They told him that because his new office block was round, it was like a huge cigarette, and all the energy was burning off through the roof. They said that the only thing he could do to prevent this loss of energy was to build a swimming pool on the roof. The millionaire followed their advice, and his business immediately started to do well.
In recent years, Feng Shui has become popular in many western countries, where companies such as B&Q have started to seek advice from
 Feng Shui experts. Before his store was opened, Brian Ingliss, the manager of one of B&Q’s stores in Britain, consulted a

Read the following passage  and choose the best answer to each question.
Sometimes you know things about people the first time you see them, for example, that you want to be friends with them or that you don’t trust them. But perhaps this kind of intuition isn’t as hard to explain as it may seem.
For instance, people give out body language signals all the time. The way you hold your body, head and arms tells people about your mood.
 If you hold your arms tightly at your sides, or fold them across your chest, people will generally feel that you are being defensive. Holding
 your head to one side shows interest in the other, while an easy, open posture indicates that you are self-confident. All this affects the way
 you feel about someone. Also, a stranger may remind you of a meeting with someone. This may be because of something as simple as the
