Why are people prejudiced? Not surprisingly, theories of prejudice have tended to focus on the more extreme forms of prejudice, in particular when there is aggression and violence. At the turn of the last century, it was popular to consider prejudice to be an innate and instinctive reaction to certain categories of person (e.g certain races) much as animals would react in instinctive ways to one another. This sport of approach is no longer popular, as it doesn't stand up well to scientific scrutiny However there may be an innate component to prejudice. There is some evidence that higher anirnals, including humans, haye an inherent fear of the unfamilier and unusual, which might set the' mould for negative attitudes towards groups that are considered different in certain ways. There is also evidence for a mere exposure effect, in which, people's attitudes towards various stimuli (e.g. other people) ,lmprove as a direct function of repeated. exposure ör familiarity with the stimulus, provided, that initial reactions to the stimuli are not negâtive. Another perspective rests on the belief that prejudices are leamed Indeed, it has been argued that hatre and suspicion of certain groups are learned.early in life, before.the child even knows anything about the target group and that this provides an emotional framework that colours all subsequent information about, and experience with, the group.

By the earty 19th century the eminent French zoologist Georges Cuvier believed he had found rock-solid evidence for the biblical great flood. While studying the geological strata around Paris, Cuvier foundthat fossils of sea creatures in one ancient layer of chalk were overlaid by those of land creatures. Then just as abruptly the layer above contained sea creatures again, with the top layer showing evidence of a vast and rapid inundation around present-day Paris. Cuvier regarded these sudden changes in the fossil record as evidence for sudden Catastrophes which devastated life on Earth, of which the great flood was just the most recent example. Cuvier's discoverie's, published in 1812 won support from a large number of eminent scientists such as the geologist Sir James Hall However there were a few who were deeply sceptical, pointing out that the evidence of a global flood was far from conclusive. Most sceptical of all were the followers of the Scottish geologist James Hutton. In 1795 he had published atwo-volume text based on the view that the slow steady processes that shape our planet today,such as erosion,werw also crucially important in the distant past.

81. We learn from the passage that many scientists

C) followed up Cuvier's excavations of marine fossils
D) were, like Cuvier, engaged in a search for evidence of the great flood

C) was slow to recognize the geological importance of marine fossils
D) grew interested in the fossils of sea creatures only after he came across a second layer
E) discovered altemating layers of fossils relating to sea and land creatures

83. it is clear from the passage that Cuvier......
A) adopted an indifferent attitude towards the attacks of his critics
B) was greatly influenced by Hutton's theory conceming the Earth's formation
C) was particularly interested in marine fossils and concentrated on them for research purposes
d) interpreted his fossil discoveries as indications of major catastrophes similar to the great flood
E) had devoted years of research to establishing that the biblical great flood had actually occurred

84. According to the passage, Cuvier's critics.......
A) were extremely jealous of his discoveries near Paris
B) felt that there was insufficient geological evidence to confırm that the biblical great flood ever had occurred
C) regarded erosion as only a minor geological process
D) were also equally opposed to the views expressed by Hutton
E) certainly believed there had been a global flood but did not regard his discoveries as scientifically important

85. As we learn from the passage, Hutton's theory was that.....
A) long-term geological change, such as erosion, had been of paramount importance in the Earth's history
B) erosion was the single most important cause of geological change on Earth
C) some geological processes, such as erosion, were relatively recent in the history of the Earth

No child is too young to play and therefore to engage in engineering, even though it is of a primitive kind. We all did so as children ourselves when we devised our own toys and games and sometimes even imaginary friends to enjoy them with us. the idea of playfulness is embedded in engineering through the concepts of invention and design. Not that engineering is trivial; rather, the heart of the activity is to give imagination its freedom to dream and turn those dreams into reality. Children do experience the essence of engineering in their earliest activities, yet there is seldom any recognition that this is the case. They may hear the word "engineer" only in connection with railroad locomotives and have no idea that their playful activity coul become a lifelong profession. Engineers themselves are understandably reluctant to equate their professional activity with meer child's play. After all, they studied long and hard to master comlicated knowledge of atoms and molekules, stresses and strains, heat and power, current and voltages, bits and bytes. they use computers for serious modelling and calculation, not for fun and games, They design and build real towers and bridges that test the limits of reliability and safety, not toy ones that totter and fall down with little consequence.

86. The main point the wrîter is making in this passage is that .......
A) man has practised engineering ever since primitive times
B) some children are born to be engineers
C) children and engineers both have the capacity to imagine and create
D) reliability and safety are minor details for the professional engineer
E) any engineering fault in design ör calculation does have serious conseguences

87. One point stressed in the passage is that professional engineering ..........
A) is very different from all other scientific activities
B) reguires more imagination than technical knowledge and calculation
C) makes little use of theoretical knowledge
D) gives priority to design rather than to invention
E) covers a vast field of involved or intricate subjects of wide scope

88. As wecan see from the passage, the writer is careful..........
A) not to exaggerate the importance of creative play to a child
B) to list all areas that are of concem to an engineer
C) to show how slowly a child's mental capacity develops
D) not to offend engineers by his comparison
E) to avoid using technical terminology in the passage

89. it is suggested in the passage that children..........
A) are not aware of the fact that in their games they are involved in some kind of engineering activity
B) should be constantly encouraged to play games that involve engineering techniques
C) love to imitate the activities that go on around them
D) are incapable of imaginative thinking
E) have a primitive perception of life

90. According to the passage, what children and engineers have in common are..........
A) reliability and safety
B) experience and knowledge
C) invention and design
D) modelling and calculation
E) recognition and reallty

Europe and Japan do not use fuel economy standards to any significant degree, but instead rely principally on high taxes to reduce gas consumption. Their average tax i is more than $2 per gallon, while in the US, federal gas taxes are only 18 EURO per gallon and average state taxes 22 euro per gallon. Higher prices at the pump rusulting from higher taxes increase consumer demand for cars with better fuel economy. They aslo encouarege consumers to reduce their driving. Research shows that federal taxes on gasoline would have to increase by a bit less than 50 euro per gallon to cut gasoline consumptin in the US. Although a 50 euro incerase is a lot compared with the present average total tax of 40 euro, it would raise retail gas prices to only a little more than $2 per gallon, tax included. This is far below prices in europe and Jaan. even if federal taxes on gas were doubled, US retail gas prices would still be much below those in other developed natşions.

91. According to the passage, efforts have been made ?.
A) to compare the levels of fuel consumption as well as fuel prices in Europe
B) to assess what price increases would lead to a significant reduction in fuel consumption in the US
C) to give more appeal to public transport
D) to establish what vehicle types consume less fuel
E) to develop fuel-efficient vehicles for sale in the US

92. It is clear from the passage that Japan's strategy to keep fuel consumption down ?.
a) Depends largely on the high taxation of fuel
B) has been greatly criticized by the public
C) has not been as effective as was originally envisaged
D) has set an example that Europe is now adopting
E) has had no effect upon the country's car production technologies

93. According to the passage, the combined federal and state taxes on gas in the US ?.
A) have exceeded those currently in use in Europe
B) Are so high that they have forced Japanese car manufacturers to change their production strategies
C) have become a major public concern
D) have suddenly caused fuel prices to rise sharply
E) amount to much less than the tax paid in Japan

94. We learn from the passage that one effect of higher taxes on fuel ?.
A) has been a great deal of uneasiness and even anger among consumers
B) has been a noticeable drop in car sales everywhere
C) has been to draw attention to a much wider range of energy sources
D) is an increased demand for vehicles which consume less fuel
E) is that Europe's production of fuel-economy vehicles has increased remarkably

95. One point stressed in the passage is that fuel prices in Jhe US, ?'?.

Throughout his workinq life, Shakespeare worked as an actor in the midst of a troupe. We know little about his first years in London, For a few years between 1585 and 1592 his name disappears altogether from the public records, and the most likelt reason for this is that, for at least some of this time, he was working for one of the city's acting companies; as a junior member he would not be listed among the troupe's principal playres. In the late 1580s theatrical activity in london was largely concentrated in shoreditch and Southwark, districts of london. Shakespeara could have lived anywhere, but Shoreditch, which would have been cheap and convenient, is a likely candidate for a young actor. In his early career Shakespeare may have moved from troupe to troupe in order to survive. Whatever the case, working conditions must have been similar. Sundays, religious holidays and disasters aside, a company would perform a different play each afternoon of the week, though some plays would be repeated in the weeks ahead. An actor usually had to keep at least 30 parts in his memory and a leading player such as Alleyn or Burbage must have kept in mind nearly 5,00 lines a week.

96. According to the passage, in Shakespeare's time,--------
A) it was not unusual for actors to appear in a great many roles each week
B) there was no theatrical activity anywhere in England except for London
C) leading actors would only agree to appear in certain roles

E) acting was regarded as an immoral occupation

97. We learn from the passage that, in Shakespeare's London, theatres ?.
A) competed with each other to get Alleyn or Burbage in their troupe
B) were normally öpen to the public six afternoons a week
C) provided actors with a comfortable and profıtable way of life
D) were rather like drama schools and they trained actors

A) gained experience as an actor by appearing in a huge variety of parts
B) was encouraged to write plays by Alleyn and Burbage
C) devoted himself primarily to the writing of plays
