Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to
indicate the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the numbered blanks.
Traditionally in America, helping the poor was a matter for private charities or local
governments. Arriving immigrants depended mainly on predecessors from their homeland to
help them start a new life. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, several European nations
instituted public-welfare programs. But such a movement was slow to take hold in the
United States because the rapid pace of industrialization and the ready availability of
farmland seemed to confirm the belief that anyone who was willing to work could find a job.
Most of the programs started during the Depression era were temporary relief measures, but
one of the programs Social Security - has become an American institution. Paid for by
deductions from the paychecks of working people, Social Security ensures that retired
persons receive a modest monthly income and also provides unemployment insurance,
disability insurance, and other assistance to those who need it. Social Security payments to
retired persons can start at age 62, but many wait until age 65, when the payments are
slightly higher. Recently, there has been concern that the Social Security fund may not have
enough money to fulfill its obligations in the 21st century, when the population of elderly
Americans is expected to increase dramatically. Policy makers have proposed various ways
to make up the anticipated deficit, but a long-term solution is still being debated.

In the years since Roosevelt, other American presidents have established assistance
programs. These include Medicaid and Medicare; food stamps, certificates that people can
use to purchase food; and public housing which is built at federal expense and made
available to persons on low incomes.
Needy Americans can also turn to sources other than the government for help. A broad
spectrum of private charities and voluntary organizations is available. Volunteerism is on the
rise in the United States, especially among retired persons. It is estimated that almost 50
percent of Americans over age 18 do volunteer work, and nearly 75 percent of U.S.
households contribute money to charity.

rapid growth of _______.
A. industrialization

C. urbanization

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to
indicate the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the numbered blanks.
According to the best evidence gathered by space probes and astronomers, Mars is an
inhospitable planet, more similar to Earth’s Moon than to Earth itself - a dry, stark,
seemingly lifeless world. Mars’ air pressure is equal to Earth’s at an altitude of 100,000 feet.
The air there is 95 percent carbon dioxide.
Mars has no ozone layer to screen out the sun’s lethal radiation. Daytime temperatures may
reach above freezing, but because the planet is blanketed by the mere wisp of an atmosphere,
the heat radiates back into space. Even at the equator, the temperature drops to -50C (-60F)
at night. Today there is no liquid water, although valleys and channels on the surface show
evidence of having been carved by running water. The polar ice caps are made of frozen
water and carbon dioxide, and water may be frozen in the ground as permafrost.
Despite these difficult conditions, certain scientists believe that there is a possibility of
transforming Mars into a more Earth-like planet. Nuclear reactors might be used to melt
frozen gases and eventually build up the atmosphere. This in turn could create a “greenhouse
effect” that would stop heat from radiating back into space.
Liquid water could be thawed to from a polar ocean. Once enough ice has melted, suitable
plants could be introduced to build up the level of oxygen in the atmosphere so that, in time,
the planet would support animal life from Earth and even permanent human colonies. “This
was once thought to be so far in the future as to be irrelevant,” said Christopher McKay, a
research scientist at NASA. “But now it’s starting to look practical. We could begin work in
four or five decades.”The idea of “terraforming” Mars, as enthusiasts call it, has its roots in
science fiction. But as researchers develop a more profound understanding of how Earth's
ecology supports life, they have begun to see how it may be possible to create similar
conditions on Mars. Don’t plan on homesteading on Mars any time soon, though. The
process could take hundreds or even thousands of years to complete and the cost would be
