She felt heavy and feverish, with painsall over her body, but at first refused all medicines, saying that good night’s rest was all that she needed. The next day, however, she was worse, unable to do anything except lie miserably on sofa, and after another restless,feverish night, Elinor was very ready to send for the Palmers’ doctor. After examining his patient, he said that she wassuffering from an infection, and would recover in few days. But the word ' infection ' greatly alarmed Mrs Palmer, who fearedthat her baby might catch it, and she persuaded her husband to take her and the child to stay with near relation, until therewas no further danger of illness at Cleveland. Mrs Jennings kindly insisted on staying with the Dashwoods, as she feltresponsible for the young ladies in their mother’s absence, and Colonel Brandon also offered to stay, in case gentleman’shelp was needed. Poor Marianne now felt really ill, and extremely miserable, as their return to Barton would have to beconsiderably delayed. Several days passed, and Marianne’s condition remained the same. The doctor came every day, talking each time of aspeedy recovery, and Elinor was just as hopeful. In her letters home, she had not told her mother of the seriousness ofMarianne’s illness, and now congratulated herself on not alarming Mrs Dashwood unnecessarily. But that evening, Mariannebecame restless again, and Elinor stayed beside her bed, watching her turning feverishly from side to side.Suddenly Marianne sat up and cried wildly, 'Is mama coming?' 'Not yet,' replied Elinor, hiding her terror, and helping her sister lie down again. 'It is long way from Barton.' 'But she must come soon!’ cried Marianne desperately.' 'I shall never see her again if she does not come soon!' Elinor was so alarmed that she sent for the doctor at once, and decided to send messenger to Barton to fetch her mother.She spoke immediately to Colonel Brandon, who, although greatly depressed and fearing the worst was ready to help in anyway, and offered to drive to Barton himself. How grateful Elinor was for the comfort of such friend as the colonel at thatmoment! Not second was lost in delay of any kind, and the colonel drove off into the night, leaving Elinor to watch over hersister. Both sisters suffered greatly during that night, Marianne in her sleepless pain and fever, and Elinor in cruel anxiety that hermother would arrive too late to see her dead child alive. When the doctor came, he had to confess that his medicines hadfailed, and that the infection was stronger than ever. Elinor was calm, except when she thought of her mother, but she wasalmost without hope. She stayed by her sister’s bed all morning, her thoughts confused and sorrowful. But at midday, she began to see signs of the fever going down. Cautiously, she told herself not to hope, but soon it seemedalmost certain, and on the doctor’s next visit, he was able to congratulate her on Marianne’s slow but sure recovery. MrsJennings showed her delight by talking and laughing without stopping, but Elinor’s feelings were of different kind. Herrelief and happiness were strong, but silent. That evening Marianne fell into quiet, comfortable sleep, and Elinor knew thatat last she was out of danger. Her thoughts now began to turn to her mother’s arrival, which was expected at any moment. Mrs Jennings persuaded her toleave Marianne’s bedside for few minutes to drink some tea, but Elinor soon returned, to sit by her sleeping sister and waitfor the travellers from Barton. The night was cold and stormy, but as long as Marianne slept peacefully, Elinor did not mind the beating of the rain on thewindows, or the noise of the wind blowing around the house. At eight o’clock she heard carriage drive up to the front door.Knowing what her poor mother must be feeling, Elinor found it impossible to be calm, and hurried downstairs. She rushedinto the sitting-room and saw Willoughby. With look of horror, she stepped backwards, and was about to leave the room, when he said rapidly, 'Miss Dashwood, Ibeg you to stay. have something must tell you.'[Adapted from SENSE AND SENSIBILITY” by Jane Austen ]Question 14: Mrs Palmer decided to leave her home .....A. as soon as her child was feeling better.

It's magnificent, breathtaking piece of architecture, and we're standing on it. group of us are 1,220 metres above thebottom of the Grand Canyon, looking down into the abyss from viewing platform called the Skywalk Far below us, theColorado River flows ajestically along the bottom of the gorge. The granite-grey rock is marked with green, brown, red andpurple colours. am terrified of heights. Only the incredible view gives me the courage to walk to the end of the Skywalk ;that and also the fact that my editor asked me to write this article. The new $30 million Skywalk was designed by architect Mark Johnson. It’s said to be one of the modern wonders of theworld, and it’s certainly remarkable structure in every way. It can support the weight of 71 fully loaded 747 planes, copewith winds of up to 160 kilometres per hour, and survive an 8.0 magnitude earthquake, while it was being constructed, theSkywalk rested on the top of the canyon and was only moved into its final position after it had been built. The glass platformextends 21 metres out over the Grand Canyon and can hold 120 people at any one time. Visitors have to wear special coversover their shoes to avoid scratching the glass beneath their feet and, as you look down, you feel as though you are floatingover the canyon. We have been told it’s safe, but still we feel quite alarmed knowing that there’s only 10 centimetres of glass beneath us. TheSkywalk is situated at Eagle Point, about 190 kilometres east of Las Vegas, in an area which is part of the Hualapai IndianReservation. The money to build the Skywalk however, did not come from government initiative. It was actually raised byLas Vegas businessman David Jin. It was then given to the Hualapai tribe in exchange for percentage of the profits, and theprofits are predicted to be very high indeed. Visitors pay anything from$150 and up for guided tour, but often that includesthe fee they pay for entering the national park. In addition to going on the Skywalk you can also choose to go on tour of thenational park. These vary tremendously in price, but the most expensive involves helicopter ride through the gorge and aboat trip along the Colorado River. In truth, the money is very important for the Hualapai. Of the 2,000 people in the tribe, more than third live in poverty, andthere is high unemployment. The Hualapai get most of their income from tourism, but although the Grand Canyon is visitedby four million paying visitors every year, the Hualapai Reservation will have been visited by only about 300,000 by the endof this year. Now things are set to change and tourists to Las Vegas are being encouraged to visit the area. However, there arefears among the Hualapai that the site will be overdeveloped. Some opponents say that not enough is being done to protectthe environment. But the work goes on. The runway at the tiny Grand Canyon West airport has been extended and otherattractions are being planned. There is also brand-new terminal building, plus gift shop. At the Skywalk itself, there’s avisitor centre and café, as well as new Indian Village displaying traditional homes and customs of the Hualapai and otherNative American tribes. As think about the difficulties the Hualapai face and look out atthe gorgeous landscape before me, ask myself question: does such construction belong in the setting of the GrandCanyon? It might be thought by some that it’s wrong to interrupt natural landscape with concrete buildings and glass andsteel, but everybody on my tour agrees that the views are worth it.Question 21: How was the Skywalk financed ?A. by an individual from nearby city B. by visitor donations to the national parkC. by tourists visiting the Hualapai Reservation D. by companies investing in the areaQuestion 22: What does 'that' in line refer to ?A. the fantastic sight below me B. encouragement from my fellow touristsC. my fear of heights D. my need to write an articleQuestion 23: What point is the writer making when talking about the changes made to the area ?A. Improvements will be expensive. B. The Hualapai will benefit financially.C. Jobs will be created for outsiders. D. The lives of local people will be at risk .Question 24: What does 'the abyss' in line mean ?A. the mountains B. the deep hole C. the river D. the edge of the cliffsQuestion 25: Why do visitors have to cover their footwear ?A. to avoid damaging the delicate floor B. to give them feeling of floatingC. to make them feel safer while walking D. to keep the walking surface cleanQuestion 26: What conclusion does the writer come to in the final paragraph ?A. He wonders if the Skywalk is right for the area.B. He is convinced of the benefits of tourism to the area.C. He feels the new buildings add to the beauty of the area .D. He doubts whether visitors will appreciate the improvements.Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or on your answer sheet to indicate the correct word orphrase that best fits each of the numbered blanks from 27 to 33 .HOW POLITE ARE THE BRITISH?

She felt heavy and feverish, with painsall over her body, but at first refused all medicines, saying that good night’s rest was all that she needed. The next day, however, she was worse, unable to do anything except lie miserably on sofa, and after another restless,feverish night, Elinor was very ready to send for the Palmers’ doctor. After examining his patient, he said that she wassuffering from an infection, and would recover in few days. But the word ' infection ' greatly alarmed Mrs Palmer, who fearedthat her baby might catch it, and she persuaded her husband to take her and the child to stay with near relation, until therewas no further danger of illness at Cleveland. Mrs Jennings kindly insisted on staying with the Dashwoods, as she feltresponsible for the young ladies in their mother’s absence, and Colonel Brandon also offered to stay, in case gentleman’shelp was needed. Poor Marianne now felt really ill, and extremely miserable, as their return to Barton would have to beconsiderably delayed. Several days passed, and Marianne’s condition remained the same. The doctor came every day, talking each time of aspeedy recovery, and Elinor was just as hopeful. In her letters home, she had not told her mother of the seriousness ofMarianne’s illness, and now congratulated herself on not alarming Mrs Dashwood unnecessarily. But that evening, Mariannebecame restless again, and Elinor stayed beside her bed, watching her turning feverishly from side to side. Suddenly Marianne sat up and cried wildly, 'Is mama coming?' 'Not yet,' replied Elinor, hiding her terror, and helping her sister lie down again. 'It is long way from Barton.' 'But she must come soon!’ cried Marianne desperately.' 'I shall never see her again if she does not come soon!' Elinor was so alarmed that she sent for the doctor at once, and decided to send messenger to Barton to fetch her mother.She spoke immediately to Colonel Brandon, who, although greatly depressed and fearing the worst was ready to help in anyway, and offered to drive to Barton himself. How grateful Elinor was for the comfort of such friend as the colonel at thatmoment! Not second was lost in delay of any kind, and the colonel drove off into the night, leaving Elinor to watch over hersister. Both sisters suffered greatly during that night, Marianne in her sleepless pain and fever, and Elinor in cruel anxiety that hermother would arrive too late to see her dead child alive. When the doctor came, he had to confess that his medicines hadfailed, and that the infection was stronger than ever. Elinor was calm, except when she thought of her mother, but she wasalmost without hope. She stayed by her sister’s bed all morning, her thoughts confused and sorrowful. But at midday, she began to see signs of the fever going down. Cautiously, she told herself not to hope, but soon it seemedalmost certain, and on the doctor’s next visit, he was able to congratulate her on Marianne’s slow but sure recovery. MrsJennings showed her delight by talking and laughing without stopping, but Elinor’s feelings were of different kind. Herrelief and happiness were strong, but silent. That evening Marianne fell into quiet, comfortable sleep, and Elinor knew thatat last she was out of danger. Her thoughts now began to turn to her mother’s arrival, which was expected at any moment. Mrs Jennings persuaded her toleave Marianne’s bedside for few minutes to drink some tea, but Elinor soon returned, to sit by her sleeping sister and waitfor the travellers from Barton. The night was cold and stormy, but as long as Marianne slept peacefully, Elinor did not mind the beating of the rain on thewindows, or the noise of the wind blowing around the house. At eight o’clock she heard carriage drive up to the front door.Knowing what her poor mother must be feeling, Elinor found it impossible to be calm, and hurried downstairs. She rushedinto the sitting-room and saw Willoughby.

It's magnificent, breathtaking piece of architecture, and we're standing on it. group of us are 1,220 metres above thebottom of the Grand Canyon, looking down into the abyss from viewing platform called the Skywalk Far below us, theColorado River flows ajestically along the bottom of the gorge. The granite-grey rock is marked with green, brown, red andpurple colours. am terrified of heights. Only the incredible view gives me the courage to walk to the end of the Skywalk ;that and also the fact that my editor asked me to write this article. The new$30 million Skywalk was designed by architect Mark Johnson. It’s said to be one of the modern wonders of theworld, and it’s certainly remarkable structure in every way. It can support the weight of 71 fully loaded 747 planes, copewith winds of up to 160 kilometres per hour, and survive an 8.0 magnitude earthquake, while it was being constructed, theSkywalk rested on the top of the canyon and was only moved into its final position after it had been built. The glass platformextends 21 metres out over the Grand Canyon and can hold 120 people at any one time. Visitors have to wear special coversover their shoes to avoid scratching the glass beneath their feet and, as you look down, you feel as though you are floatingover the canyon. We have been told it’s safe, but still we feel quite alarmed knowing that there’s only 10 centimetres of glass beneath us. TheSkywalk is situated at Eagle Point, about 190 kilometres east of Las Vegas, in an area which is part of the Hualapai IndianReservation. The money to build the Skywalk however, did not come from government initiative. It was actually raised byLas Vegas businessman David Jin. It was then given to the Hualapai tribe in exchange for percentage of the profits, and theprofits are predicted to be very high indeed. Visitors pay anything from \$150 and up for guided tour, but often that includesthe fee they pay for entering the national park. In addition to going on the Skywalk you can also choose to go on tour of thenational park. These vary tremendously in price, but the most expensive involves helicopter ride through the gorge and aboat trip along the Colorado River. In truth, the money is very important for the Hualapai. Of the 2,000 people in the tribe, more than third live in poverty, andthere is high unemployment. The Hualapai get most of their income from tourism, but although the Grand Canyon is visitedby four million paying visitors every year, the Hualapai Reservation will have been visited by only about 300,000 by the endof this year. Now things are set to change and tourists to Las Vegas are being encouraged to visit the area. However, there arefears among the Hualapai that the site will be overdeveloped. Some opponents say that not enough is being done to protectthe environment. But the work goes on. The runway at the tiny Grand Canyon West airport has been extended and otherattractions are being planned. There is also brand-new terminal building, plus gift shop. At the Skywalk itself, there’s avisitor centre and café, as well as new Indian Village displaying traditional homes and customs of the Hualapai and otherNative American tribes. As think about the difficulties the Hualapai face and look out atthe gorgeous landscape before me, ask myself question: does such construction belong in the setting of the GrandCanyon? It might be thought by some that it’s wrong to interrupt natural landscape with concrete buildings and glass andsteel, but everybody on my tour agrees that the views are worth it.Question 31: What does 'the abyss' in line mean ?A. the deep hole B. the mountains C. the edge of the cliffs D. the riverQuestion 32: Why do visitors have to cover their footwear ?A. to avoid damaging the delicate floor B. to keep the walking surface clean
