There are many African tribes but, for many people, the Maasai are the most well-known.
They are famous for their bright red clothing and their ceremonies with lots of music and
dancing. Probably, one of the most colorful ceremonies is the festival of "Eunoto," when the
teenage boys of the Maasai become men.
Eunoto lasts for many days and Maasai people travel across the region to get to a special
place near the border between Kenya and Tanzania. The teenage boys who travel with them
are called "warriors". This is a traditional name from the past when young men fought with
other tribes.
At the beginning of the ceremony, the teenagers paint their bodies while their mothers start
to build a place called the "Osingira," a sacred room in the middle of the celebrations. Later,
the senior elders from different tribes will sit inside this place and, at different times, the
boys go inside to meet them. Later in the day, the boys run around the Osingira, going faster
and faster each time.
The teenagers also have to alter their appearance at Eunoto. Masai boys' hair is very long
before the ritual but they have to cut it off. In Maasai culture, hair is an important symbol.
For example, when a baby grows into an infant, the mother cuts the child’s hair and gives the
child a name. At a Maasai wedding, the hair of the bride is also cut off as she becomes a
woman. And so, at Eunoto, the teenage boy’s mother cuts his hair off at sunrise.

On the final day, the teenagers meet the senior elders one more time. They get this advice:
"Now you are men, use your heads and knowledge." Then, people start to travel back to their
homes and lands. The teenagers are no longer warriors. They are adult men and now they
will get married and have children. Later in life, they will be the leaders of their
communities.
(Adapted from "Life" by John Hughes. Helen Stephenson and Paul Dummett)

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 from 35 to 42.
In this modern world where closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras are everywhere
and smartphones in every pocket, the routine filming of everyday life is becoming pervasive.
A number of countries are rolling out body cams for police officers; other public-facing
agencies such as schools, councils and hospitals are also experimenting with cameras for
their employees. Private citizens are getting in on the act too: cyclists increasingly wear
headcams as a deterrent to aggressive drivers. As camera technology gets smaller and
cheaper, it isn’t hard to envisage a future where we're all filming everything all the time, in
every direction.
Would that be a good thing? There are some obvious potential upsides. If people
know they are on camera, especially when at work or using public services, they are surely
less likely to misbehave. The available evidence suggests that it discourages behaviours such
as vandalism. Another upside is that it would be harder to get away with crimes or to evade
blame for accidents.
But a world on camera could have subtle negative effects. The deluge of data we pour
into the hands of Google, Facebook and others has already proved a mixed blessing. Those
companies would no doubt be willing to upload and curate our body-cam data for free, but at
what cost to privacy and freedom of choice?
Body-cam data could also create a legal minefield. Disputes over the veracity and
interpretation of police footage have already surfaced. Eventually, events not caught on
camera could be treated as if they didn't happen. Alternatively, footage could be faked or
doctored to dodge blame or incriminate others.
Of course, there’s always the argument that if you're not doing anything wrong, you
have nothing to fear. But most people have done something embarrassing, or even illegal,
that they regret and would prefer they hadn't been caught on film. People already censor
their social media feeds - or avoid doing anything incriminating in public - for fear of
damaging their reputation. Would ubiquitous body cams have a further chilling effect on our
freedom?

The always-on-camera world could even threaten some of the attributes that make us
human. We are natural gossips and backbiters, and while those might not be desirable
behaviours, they oil the wheels of our social interactions. Once people assume they are being
filmed, they are likely to clam up.
The argument in relation to body-cam ownership is a bit like that for guns: once you
go past a critical threshold, almost everyone will feel they need one as an insurance policy.
We are nowhere near that point yet - but we should think hard about whether we really want
to say "lights, body cam, action."
(Adapted from https://www.newscientist.com)

Question 39: What does the author imply in paragraph 3?
A. Body-cam ownership could eventually give rise to information overload, which, in
turn, raises public concern.
