Readingthe following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet toindicate the correct answer to each

of the questions from 1 to 10: Animation traditionally is done by hand-drawing or painting successiveframe of an object, each slightly different than the proceeding frame. Incomputer animation, although the computer may be the one to draw the differentframes, in most cases the artist will draw the beginning and ending frames andthe computer will produce the drawings between the first and the last drawing.This is generally referred to as computerassisted animation, because thecomputer is more of a helper than an originator. In full computer animation, complex mathematical formulas are used toproduce the final sequences of pictures. These formulas operate on extensivedatabases of numbers that defines the objects in the pictures as theyexist in mathematical space. The database consists of endpoints, and color andintensity information. ighly trained professionals are needed to produce sucheffects because animation that obtains high degrees of realism involvescomputer techniques fro three-dimensional transformation, shading, andcurvatures. igh-tech computer animation for film involves very expensive computersystems along with special color terminals or frame buffers. The frame uffer is nothing more than agiant image memory for viewing a single frame. It temporarily holds the imagefor display on the screen. A camera can be used to film directly from the computer!s display screen,but for the highest quality images possible, expensive film recorders are used.The computer computers the positions and colors for the figures in the picture,and sends this information to the recorder, which captures it onfilm. "ometimes, however, the images are stored on a large magnetic dis# beforebeing sent to the recorder. !nce this process iscompleted, it is replaced for the next frame. $hen the entire sequence has beenrecorded on the film, the film must be developed before the animation can beviewed. If the entire sequence does not seem right, the motions must becorrected, recomputed, redisplayed, and rerecorded. This approach can be veryexpensive and timeconsuming. %ften, computer-animation companies first domotion tests with simple computer-generated line drawings before selling theircomputers to the task of calculating the high-resolution,realistic-loo#ing images. &uestion '( $hat aspect of computer animation does thepassage mainly discuss) A.

Readingthe following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet toindicate the correct answer to each of the question 01 to 10: "omeanimal behaviorists argue that certain animals can remember part events,anticipate future ones, ma#e plans and choices, and coordinate activitieswithin a group. These scientists, however, are cautious about the extent towhich animals can be credited with conscious processing. Dxplanations of animalbehavior that leave out any sort of consciousness at all and ascribe actionsentirely to instinct leave many questions unanswered. %ne example of suchunexplained behavior( oneybees communicate the sources of nectar to oneanother by doing a dance in a figure-eight pattern. The orientation of thedance conveys the position of the food relative to the sun!s position in thes#y, and the speed of the dance tells how far the food source is from the hive.;ost researchers assume that the ability to perform and encode the dance isinnate and shows no special intelligence. *ut in one study, when experimenters#ept changing the site of the food source, each time moving the food -2 percentfather from the previous site, foraging honeybees began to anticipate where thefood source would appear next. $hen the researchers arrived at the newlocation, they would find the bees circling the spot, waiting for their food.Ao one has yet explained how bees, whose brains weigh fourten-thousandths of an ounce, could have inferred the location of the new site. %ther behaviors that mayindicate some cognition include tool use. ;any animals, li#e the otter who usesa stone to crac# mussel shells, are capable of using objects in the naturalenvironment as rudimentary tools. %ne researcher has found that motherchimpan3ees occasionally show their young how to use tools to open hard nuts.In one study, chimpan3ees compared two pairs of food wells containing chocolatechips. %ne pair might contain, say, five chips and three chips, the other fourchips and three chips. Allowed to choose which pair they wanted, thechimpan3ees almost always chose the one with thehigher total, showing some sort of summing ability. %ther chimpan3ees havelearned to use numerals to label quantities of items and do simple sums. &uestion 5'( $hat does the passage mainly discuss) A. %bservationsthat suggest consciousness in animal behavior. *.
