Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions
Most human diets contain between 10 and 15 percent of their total calories as protein. The rest of the dietary energy comes from carbohydrates, fats, and in some people, alcohol. The proportion of calories from fats varies from 10 percent in poor communities to 40 percent or more in rich communities.
In addition to providing energy, fats have several other functions in the body. The fat-soluble vitamins, A, D, E, and K, are dissolved in fats, as their name implies. Good sources of these vitamins have high oil or fat content, and the vitamins are stored in the body’s fatty tissues. In the diet, fats cause food to remain longer in the stomach, thus increasing the feeling of fullness for some time after a meal is eaten. Fats add variety, taste, and texture to foods, which accounts for the popularity of fried foods. Fatty deposits in the body have an insulating and protective value. The curves of the human female body are due mostly to strategically located fat deposits.
Whether a certain amount of fat in the diet is essential to human health is not definitely known. When rats are fed a fat-free diet, their growth eventually ceases, their skin becomes inflamed and scaly, and their reproductive systems are damaged. Two fatty acids, linoleic and arachidonic acids, prevent these abnormalities and hence are called essential fatty acids. They also are required by a number of other animals, but their roles in human beings are debatable. Most nutritionists consider linoleic fatty acid an essential nutrient for humans.
Question 31: We can infer from the passage that all of the following statements about fats are true EXCEPT____________.
A.poor people eat more fatty foods
B.alcohol is not a common source of dietary energy C.fats provide energy for the body
D.economics influences the distribution of calorie intake

A. beneficial to B. detrimental to C. required for D. desired for
Question 34: According to the author of the passage, which of the following is true for rats when they are fed a fat free diet?
C. They stop growing D. They have more babies Question 35: Linoleic fatty acid is mentioned in the passage
A. a nutrient found in most foods B. an essential nutrient for humans C. preventing weight gain in rats D. more useful than arachidonic acid
Question 36: The phrase “these abnormalities” in the third paragraph refers to____________.
A.curves on the human female body
B.cessation of growth, bad skin, and damaged reproductive systems C.strategically located fat deposits D. a condition caused
by fried foods
Question 37: That humans should all have some fat our diet is, according to the author

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions
Very few people in the modern world obtain their food supply by hunting and gathering in the natural environment surrounding their homes. This method of harvesting from nature's provision is the oldest known subsistence strategy and has been practised for at least the last two million years. It was, indeed, the only way to obtain food until rudimentary farming and the domestication of wild animals were introduced about 10,000 years ago.
Because hunter-gatherers have fared poorly in comparison with their agricultural cousins, their numbers have dwindled, and they have been forced to live in marginal environments, such as deserts and arctic wastelands. In higher latitudes, the shorter growing seasons have restricted the availability of plant life. Such conditions have caused a greater dependence on hunting, and on fishing along the coasts and waterways. The abundance of vegetation in the lower latitudes of the tropics, on the other hand, has provided a greater opportunity for gathering a variety of plants. In short, the environmental differences have restricted the diet and have limited possibilities for the development of subsistence societies.
exhausted, the community moves on to exploit another site. We also notice seasonal migration patterns evolving for most hunter-gatherers, along with a strict division of labor between the sexes. These patterns of behavior may be similar to those practised by mankind during the Paleolithic Period.
Question 38: The word "domestication" in the first paragraph mostly means
A.adapting animals to suit a new working environment
B.teaching animals to do a particular job or activity in the home C.hatching and raising new species of wild animals in the home
D.making wild animals get used to living with and working for humans Question 39: The word "marginal" in the second paragraph is closest in meaning to
A. suburban B. forgotten C. abandoned D. disadvantaged
Question 40: According to the passage, studies of contemporary subsistence societies can provide a _________.
A.deeper insight into the dry-land farming
B.broader vision of prehistoric natural environments C.further understanding of prehistoric times
D.further understanding of modern subsistence societies
Question 41: According to the passage, subsistence societies depend mainly on
A. agricultural products B. farming methods C. hunter-gatherers' tools D. nature's provision Question 42: According to the author, most contemporary and prehistoric hunter-gatherers share ___________.
A. some restricted daily rules B. only the way of duty division C. some patterns of behavior D. some methods of production
Question 43: Which of the following would serve as the best title of the passage?
A. Hunter-gatherers: Always on the Move B. A Brief History of Subsistence Farming C. Evolution of Humans' Farming Methods D. Hunter-gatherers and Subsistence Societies
Question 44: In the lower latitudes of the tropics, hunter- gatherers ____________.

Question 45: According to the passage, which of the following is NOT mentioned?
A. Hunting or fishing develops where there are no or short growing seasons.
B.The number of hunter-gatherers decreases where farming is convenient.
C.Harvesting from the natural environment had existed long before farming was taken up.
