Candidates must NOT start writing their answers until told to do so.
This paper has TWO sections which carry equal marks.
Section A comprises TWELVE questions. Full marks may be obtained for complete
answers to ALL questions.
Section B comprises THREE questions. Full marks may be obtained for TWO complete
answers. Credit will be given for the best TWO answers.
An indication is given of the approximate weighting of each section of a question by means of a gure
enclosed by square brackets, eg [12], immediately following that section.
Only silent, self-contained calculators with a Single-line Display
or Dual-line Display are permitted in this examination.
Dictionaries are not allowed with one exception. Those whose rst language is not
English may use a standard translation dictionary to translate between that language and
English provided that neither language is the subject of this examination. Subject specic
translation dictionaries are not permitted.
No electronic devices capable of storing and retrieving text, including electronic
dictionaries, may be used.
Do NOT turn examination paper over until instructed to do so.

assessment.
(c) You MUST record exactly one response for each question; choose E if you wish to abstain.
(Each response is marked +3 if correct, 1 if incorrect, and 0 for abstain. The total is
scaled.)
(d) On the response sheet:
Please use an HB pencil.
Mark your answer with a single horizontal line.
If you make a mistake, erase it completely.
