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.
The old man rubbed the cramped hand against his trousers and tried to ease the fingers.
But the hand would not open. Maybe it will open with the sun, he thought. He looked across
the sea and knew how alone he was now. The clouds were building up for the trade wind and
he looked ahead and saw a flight of wild ducks against the sky over the water, and he knew
that no man was ever alone on the sea. He thought of how some men feared being out of
sight of land in a small boat and knew they were right in months of sudden bad weather. But
now they were in hurricane months and, when there are no hurricanes, the weather of these
months is the best of all the year. If there is a hurricane you always see the signs of it in the
sky for days ahead, if you are at sea. They do not see it ashore because they do not know
what to look for, he thought. But we have no hurricane coming now. He looked at the sky
and saw the white cumulus clouds built like friendly piles of ice cream and high above were
the thin feathers of the cirrus against the high September sky. ‘Better weather for me than for
you, fish,’ he said.
His left hand was still cramped, but he was unknotting it slowly. I hate a cramp, I he
thought. It is a treachery of one’s own body and it humiliates oneself especially when one is
alone. If the boy were here he could rub it for me and loosen it down from the forearm, he
thought. But it will loosen up. Then, with his right hand he felt the difference in the pull of
the line. As he leaned against the line and slapped his left hand hard and fast against his
thigh he saw it slanting slowly upward. ‘He’s coming up,’ he said. ‘Come on hand. Please
come on.’
The line rose slowly and steadily and then the surface of the ocean bulged ahead of the
boat and the fish came out. He came out unendingly and water poured from his sides. He
was bright in the sun and his head and back were dark purple and in the sun the stripes on his
sides showed wide and a light lavender. His sword was as long as a baseball bat and he rose
full-length from the water and then re-entered it, smoothly, like a diver and the old man saw
the great blade of his tail go under and the line started to race out.
He is a great fish and I must convince him, he thought. I must never let him learn his
strength nor what he could do if he made his run. If I were him I would put in everything

now and go until something broke. But, thank God, they are not as intelligent as we who kill
them; although they are more noble and more able. The old man had seen many great fish.
He had seen many that weighed more than a thousand pounds and he had caught two of that
size in his life, but never alone. Now alone, and out of sight of land, he was fast to the
biggest fish he had ever seen and bigger than he had ever heard of, and his left hand was
still as tight as the gripped claws of an eagle.
It will uncramp though, he thought. Surely it will uncramp to help my right hand. There
are three things that are brothers: the fish and my two hands. It must uncramp. It is unworthy
of it to be cramped. The fish had slowed again and was going at his usual pace.
I wonder why he jumped, the old man thought. He jumped almost as though to show me
how big he was. I know now, anyway, he thought. I wish I could show him what sort of man
I am. But then he would see my cramped hand. Let him think I am more man than I am and I
will be so.
[Extracted from 'The Old Man and the Sea' by Ernest Hemingway]

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.
As you move around your home take a good hard look at its contents. It's likely that your
living room will have a television set and a DVD player, and your kitchen a washing
machine and tumble drier, maybe also a microwave oven and electric toaster. Your bedroom
drawers will be stuffed with almost three times as many clothes as you need. You almost
certainly own a car and a home computer, holiday abroad at least once a year
and eat out at least once a week. If you could see the volume of rubbish in your dustbin over
a year, you would be horrified.
Now, perhaps, more than ever before, people are wondering what life is all about, what it's
for. The single-minded pursuit of material success is beginning to trouble large numbers of
people around the world. They feel the long-hours work culture to make more money to buy
more things is eating up their lives, leaving them precious little time or energy for family or
leisure. Many are turning to alternative ways of living and downshifting is one of them.
According to a national consulting group, this new approach to work coincides with
radical changes in the employment market, where a job is no longer guaranteed and lifetime
employment can only be achieved by taking personal responsibility for your career. Six per
cent of workers in Britain took the decision to downshift last year, swapping their highly
pressured, stressful positions for less demanding, less time-consuming work which they
believe gives them a better balanced life.
One couple who downshifted is Daniel and Liz. They used to work in central London. He
was a journalist and she used to work for a international bank.They would commute every
day from their large house in the suburbs, leaving their two children with a nanny. Most

evenings Daniel wouldn't get home until eight or nine o' clock, and nearly twice a month he
would have to fly to New York for meetings. They both earned a large amount of money but
began to feel that life was passing them by.
Nowadays, they run a farm in the mountains of Wales. ‘I always wanted to have a farm
here,' says Daniel, and we took almost a year to make the decision to downshift. It has taken
some getting used to, but it's been worth it. We have to think twice now about spending
money on car repairs and we no longer have any holidays. However. I think it made us
stronger as a family, and the children are a lot happier.'
Liz, however, is not totally convinced. 'I used to enjoy my job, even though it was hard
work and long hours. I'm not really a country girl, but I suppose I'm gradually getting used
to looking after the animals. One thing I do like though is being able to see more of my
children. My tip for other people wanting to do the same is not to think about it too much or
you might not do it at all.
Question 35: What does the writer say about the employment market?

Question 38: What has Daniel’s reaction been to moving to Wales?
A. He felt at home on the farm almost immediately.
B. He is sorry that they made the decision to move too quickly.
C. He misses the holidays they used to have abroad.
D. He’s happy that he’s now fulfilled an ambition.

Question 39: Why was this text written?
