I am here for the whole week; I can try various restaurants. W: Yes, there is an excellent French restaurant on Rainbow Avenue by your hotel. If you like spicy food, there are some really good Asian restaurants on the main street and there's also a very good Mexican restaurant just two blocks from here. M: That's enough for a week.

W: Hello, John, how are you doing? M: Not very well. I was dropped from a class that I needed to take this semester. W : You were dropped from the class? What happened? M: Well, this class was added at the last minute because there were so many students who needed it. I went to the class the first day it opened, and I thought that I would be added to the class because I was there that day. The professor said something about turning in the add slip right away, but I needed to get a signature for another class I was adding, so I waited. W: So you didn't turn in the add slip right away? M: Right. Then I got sick the next day and missed the class. The following day when I went in to class, the teacher announced that anyone who had not turned in an add slip or missed any classes had been dropped. She said that there were too many students who wanted to take the class, and she had to accept the students who had added and were attending. W: So what did you do at that point? M: I left the class because I was so upset. I really needed that class to fulfill my requirements, and now my plans are ruined. Questions 23 to 25 are based on the conversation you have just heard.

Section B
Directions: In this section, you will hear 3 short passages. At the end of each passage, you will hear some questions. Both the passage and the questions will be spoken only once. After you hear one question, you must choose the best of the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 2 with a single line through the center.

Passage One
Mr. and Mrs. Jones very seldom go out in the evening, but last Sunday, Mrs. Jones said to her husband, "There is a good film at the cinema tonight. Can we go and see it?" Mr. Jones was quite happy about it, so they went, and both of them enjoyed the film. They came out of the cinema at 11 o'clock, got into their car and began driving home. It was quite dark. Then Mrs. Jones said, "Look, Bill. A woman's running along the road very fast, and a man's running after her. Can you see them?" Mr. Jones said, "yes, I can." He drove the car slowly near the woman and said to her, "Can we help you?" "No, thank you," the woman said, but she did not stop running. "My husband and I always run home after the cinema, and the last one washes the dishes at home!" Questions 26 to 29 are based on the passage you have just heard. 26. What did Mr. and Mrs. Jones do last Sunday evening? 27. What did they see on their way back? 28. Why did Mr. Jones drive the car slowly near the woman? 29. Why were the woman and the man running?

Passage Two
Men sometimes say: "We are better and cleverer than women. Women never invent things. We do." It is true that men have invented a lot of useful things: the alphabet, machines, rockets, and guns, too. But scientists and archeologists now agree that women invented one very important thing. It has changed history. They invented agriculture. Before the invention of agriculture men were hunters. They went out every day. Sometimes they killed animals sometimes animals killed them. Life was difficult and dangerous. Women had to go out every day, too. They collected roots, fruit and grasses. Then, one day, more than 10, 000 years ago, a woman dropped some grass seeds. She dropped them near her home in the Middle East. They grew and the first wheat was born. The idea grew, too. Women planted roots and fruit trees. Then they could stay at home and look after the children - and the animals. Women like baby animals. Archeologists think it was women that

kept the first domestic animals: dogs, cows, sheep and goats. That idea grew, too. Then their husband did not have to go hunting for meat. They stayed at home. They built villages and cities. Civilization began. Men began civilization - after women invented agriculture. Questions 30 to 32 are based on the passage you have just heard. 30. Which of the following statements best summarizes the passage? 31. What was the women's invention? 32. What did the men and women do before the invention of agriculture?

Passage Three
Our sun is exactly an orange, dwarf star. Although it is not nearly the hottest star known, the surface temperature is about 10, OOO°F, and that of its interior is thought to be in the range of 20, 000, 000°F. We commonly think of the sun as burning; yet it is too hot to burn and is composed of elemental gases. The sun is more than 865, 000 miles in diameter and has a mass one third of a million times greater than the earth's. Scientists believe that it is two billion years old and, instead of cooling, is still getting hotter. Perhaps, within next two billion years, it will reach a temperature of sufficient intensity to destroy the earth. The sun's halo is almost as hot as its interior. Its tongues of fire leap outward a half-million miles from the sun's surface at speeds reaching 250, 000 miles an hour. Fortunately these tongues do not travel at their full speeds to earth, nor are their terrific temperatures transmitted through space. Some of the energy from these disturbances does reach our atmosphere, however, and is believed to cause changes in weather. Questions 33 to 35 are based on the passage you have just heard. 33. How hot is the interior of the sun believed to be? 34. What is the sun made of? 35. How do we know that the sun is two billion years old?

Section C
Directions: In this section, you will hear a passage three times. When the passage is read for the first time, you should listen carefully for its general idea. When the passage is read for the second time, you are required to fill in the blanks numbered from 36 to 43 with the exact words you have just heard. For blanks numbered from 44 -to 46 you are required to fill in the missing information. For these blanks, you can either use the exact words you have just heαrd or write down the main points in your own words. Finally, when the passage is read for the third time, you should check what you have written. I asked successful people what the secret of their success was. I (36)recall an early discussion with a vice president of a large oil company. "Oh, I just keep a To Do List," he said. I passed over that quickly, little (37)suspecting the importance of what he said.

I was in another city the next day and I had lunch with a businessman who (38)practically owned the town. He was chairman of the gas and light company, president of five (39)manufacturing companies, and had his hand in a dozen other (40)enterprises. 1 asked him how he managed to get everything done. "Oh, that's easy," he said. "I keep a To Do List. " The first thing in the morning, he told me, he would come in and list what he wanted to (41)accomplish that day. He would arrange the items in (42)priority. During the day he would cross off items and add others as they (43)occurred to him. In the evening (44)he would check to see how many of the items he had written down still remained undone and then give himself :a score. (45)His goal was to cross off every single item. Again and again in the years since, when I have talked to successful people, the To Do List has come up. I have found that (46)one difference between people at the top of the ladder and people at the bottom is that those at the top use a To Do List every day to make better use of their time; those at the bottom don't.
