21st CENTURY TEACHERS: INEVITABLE CHANGES

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the co
ect answer to each of the questions.
    Since water is the basis of life, composing the greater part of the tissues of all living things, the crucial problem of desert animals is to survive in a world where sources of flowing water are rare. And since man’s inexorable necessity is to abso
large quantities of water at frequent intervals, he can scarcely comprehend that many creatures of the desert pass then entire lives without a single drop.
    Uncompromising as it is, the desert has not eliminated life but only those forms unable to withstand its desiccating effects. No moist- skinned, water-loving animals can exist there. Few large animals are found. The giants of the North American desert are the deer, the coyote, and the bobcat. Since desert country is open, it holds more swift-footed running and leaping creatures than the tangled forest. Its population is largely nocturnal, silent, filled with reticence, and ruled by stealth. Yet they are not emaciated.
    Having adapted to their austere environment, they are as healthy as animals anywhere else in the word. The secret of their adjustment lies in the combination of behavior and physiology. None could survive if, like mad dogs and Englishmen, they went out in the midday sun; many would die in a matter of minutes. So most of them pass the burning hours asleep in cool, humid bu
ows underneath the ground, emerging to hunt only by night. The surface of the sun-baked desert averages around 150 degrees, but 18 inches down the temperature is only 60 degrees.
Question 26: Man can hardly understand why many animals live their whole life in the desert, as _________. A. very few lager animals are found in the desert
B. water composes the greater part of the tissues of living things

B. “the simplest forms of life that exist in air, water, living and dead creatures and plants”
C. “collections of cells that form the different parts of humans, animals and plants”
D. “the smallest units of living matter that can exist on their own”
Question 28: The author mentions all the following as examples of the behaviour of desert animals EXCEPT_______. A. they are noisy and aggressive                              B. they sleep during the day
C. they dig home underground   D. they are watchful and quiet
Question 29: According to the passage, creatures in the desert_________.
A. run and leap faster than those in the tangled forest 
B. run and leap more slowly than those in the tangled forest

A. healthy animals live longer lives   B. desert life is colorful and diverse

ect answer to each of the following questions.
SHAYNE’S DREAMS COME TRUE - BUT WILL THEY BE SHATTERED?
It is a week before The X Factor live tour when I meet the winner of the series, Shayne Ward. “It has been mental,” he says, refe
ing to the past six months of his life. “I've just been talking to Louis Walsh on the phone. Louis Walsh!” Walsh, a top record producer and The X Factor judge, now manages Shayne’s career. “I was talking to Simon Cowell (a cele
ity record producer) yesterday!” He shakes his head in amazement. And these people are telling me they're excited about working with me. “I can't get my head round it.”
Shayne is about as natural as any pop star a
iving in the public arena can be. “I just can’t accept where I am now” he says sincerely. “It doesn't feel real. To me, this is just a job.” “What do you think being famous feels like?” I ask him. “I'm not sure, to be honest. Different from this?” he laughs, with only a hint of nerves. Since winning The X Factor, Shayne's success has been phenomenal. His debut single took just three days to reach the number one spot. On tour, he's going to play to audiences of 10,000 on average. He has already
ought the house down at a gig in his home city. “I walked out after that performance and just thought, “I’m dreaming!”” Shayne is one of a family of

seven children. Times were hard, but he has never wished or a different childhood. Although he thought about going to college, he ended up leaving school at sixteen, just to help his mother pay the rent. He set out on his reality show journey shortly afterwards. When he told he friends he had an audition for The X Factor, none of them really believed him. “I thought I’d go fot it because my family wanted me to, but I never really believed that I would win.”
Naturally, Ward is a fan of reality TV talent shows. “They're
illiant, because people who want recording contracts try for years and get nowhere. Then these competitions come along the people at home decide whether they like the singers or not. So its not just a few people at a record company deciding who gets a chance.” But the previous winner of The X Factor only had one hit. He hasn't been heard of since then. Is Shayne Ward going to be another talent show flop?
A lot of people feel cynical about reality TV show winners and their chances of continuing success. Audiences usually lose interest in them as soon as the show has finished. In fact, contestants on shows like Big Brother are given severe warnings from the show’s producers beforehand, basically telling them “you will not be liked”. Talent shows like The X Factor have to offer contestants a kind of stardom though, and something they can think of as a career, months afterwards at least.

 C. Audiences never really like them.   D. They don’t expect to be popular.

 A. psychiatric  B. physical   C. crazy  D. mind-bending
Question 39: The word “it” in the first paragraph refers to
 A. the tour  B. the experience  C. the phone call D. the show
