Passage Seven

I found my father a very hard man to understand when I was young. He was very short and thin and had large blue eyes. I could have loved him as I did my mother, but he seemed to hold us off so that we could not approach him or sit on his knee as love to do. I believe he had a hard life as a child, and I know that he left school at the age of ten and started to work. This made him an unsociable man, unfriendly even to the people closest to him. I never knew him to have a close friend as the other men did.

Everything he did had to be precise. If he chopped the sticks for the fire, each stick would be the same length and thickness as all the others, and they would all be stacked without one out of place. His motto was "If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing well". In our household his word was law and nobody dared dispute it.

He worked hard when in a job and saw to it that we children learned the meaning of work. My mother did not have much pleasure but I do not remember her ever complaining ---except on Sunday afternoons when father would take off his clothes and get into bed, leaving her to mend his working clothes while he had his rest. This she disliked very much, for the clothes were dirty from the work he had been doing and she hated handling anything that was not clean.

191. The writer found it difficult to understand her father because he _____. 

    A. looked distant                  B. rejected affection

    C. ill-treated the family             D. hated keeping company with children

192. What did the writer think made her father unsociable?

    A. An unhappy childhood.           B. A lack of friends.

    C. No interest in hobbies.            D. Not smoking or drinking.

193. What was particular about the sticks for the fire?

    A. They were arranged in a pattern.    B. They were chopped in only one place.

    C. They were similar in length.        D. They all weighed the same.

194. The writer's father believed that ______.

    A. you should only do things for which you have the ability

    B. only important jobs are worth doing well         

C. you should only attempt worthwhile jobs

    D. anything you do should be done to your best ability

195. What did the writer's mother dislike about Sunday afternoons?

    A. Working while her husband rested.      

B. Repairing her husband's clothes.

C. Not being able to derive any pleasure from what she herself found delightful.

D. Touching unclean clothes.

 

Passage Eight

Have you ever wondered why different animals or pests have their particular colors? Colors in them seem to be used mainly to protect themselves.

Birds, especially seagulls, are very fond of locusts, but birds cannot easily catch locusts because locusts change their colors together with the change of the color of crops. When crops are green, locusts look green. But when crops are ripe, locusts take on exactly the same brown color as crops have. Some other pests with different colors from plants are usually easily found and eaten by their enemies. So they have to hide themselves in terror for lives and appear only at night.

If you study the animal life in any part of the world, you will find the main use of coloring is to protect themselves. Bears, wolves and other beasts move quietly through forests. They are usually invisible to the eyes of hunters, because they have the color much like the barks of trees.

An even stranger act remains to be noticed. A kind of fish living in seas can send out a kind of very black liquid when it faces danger. While the liquid spreads over, its enemies cannot find it, and it immediately swims away. Thus, it has existed up to now though it is not powerful at all.

A. birds take their rest when night comes        

B. their enemies can easily find them and eat them 

C. they have the habit of coming out in darkness 

D. it’s easy for them to destroy plants in darkness

199. Bears and wolves have the same colors as barks of trees because ______.

A. they fear other beasts     B. they prefer brown or grey colors

C. they enjoy walking through forests quietly
