This text is for questions 26 to 30.


When a ray of light passes from one transparent substance to another, such as from
air into glass, it is refraction, happens because light moves at different speeds in different
substances-and makes things appear in different places.
You may have noticed that a swimming pool looks as if it is not as deep as it really is
and fish in a lake or a river appear to be nearer the surface than they really are.. the reason
for the illusion is that light rays travelling from underwater object do not move in the same
direction when they emerge through the surface and into the air.
Similar effects occurs when light rays and the normal (a line a right angles to the
surface) is called the angle of incident. Below the water surface, the angle between the light
ray and the normal is called the angle of refraction. When light enters a denser medium, as
when it travels from air into water or into glass, the angle of refraction is less than the angle
of incident-the ray is refracted toward the normal. When light travels from one medium into a
less dense medium, as from glass into air, the angle of refraction is greater than the angle of
incident-the ray is refracted away from the normal.
Refraction can have some strange effects, for example, a drinking straw placed in a
glass of water. The straw appears to bend below the surface. That is because light rays
travelling from straw and leaving the surf are refracted away from the normal. Another
example is the setting Sun, when the air near the surface is denser than that above it. Light
rays from the sun are refracted as they pass through this denser air. Again, looking back
along the refracted rays, we see the Sun in a different position. As result, we appear to be
able to see the Sun even when it has dropped below the horizon.

26. Where is the angle refraction?


A. Above the water surface, between the light ray and the normal,
B. Above the water surface, between the incident ray and the normal
C. Below the water surface, between the light ray and the incident ray
D. Below the water surface, between the incident ray and the normal
E. Below the water surface, between the light ray and the normal

27. When is the angle of refraction greater than the angle of incidence?
A. When light enters a denser medium
B. When light travels from the same dense of medium
C. When light travels from one medium into a less dense medium
D. When light fails to enter a denser medium because there is an obstacle
E. When light travels from the same dense of medium because there is an obstacle.

This text is for questions 31 to 32


Each society has its own beliefs, attitudes, customs, behaviors, and social habits.
These give people a sense of who they are, how they should behave, and what they should
or should not do. These rules reflect the culture of a country.
People become conscious of such rules when they meet people from different
cultures. For example, in some cultures, being on time can mean turning up several hours
late for an appointment, even for a business meeting; in others, 3 p.m. means 3 p.m. Also,
the rules about when to eat vary from culture to culture. Many North Americans and
Europeans are used to having three mealtimes a day and organizing their timetable around
them. In some countries, on the other hand, people often do not have strict rules like this -
people eat when they want to and every family has its own time table.
When people visit or live in a country for the first time, they are often surprised at the
differences that exist between their own culture and that in the other country. The most
common way of comparing two cultures is in terms of their differences - not their similarities.

Video games become a controversial issue for parents and educators. Those who are
in favor of video games believe that video games have some benefits. However, people who
are against video games consider these games have several negative effects.
In the proponents point of view, video game functions as a form of light entertainment.
As a part of a balanced entertainment, games can provide stress relief for kids, help with
aspects of coordination and concentration on visual details, and help kids relate to one
another in some forms of healthy competition.
On the contrary, the opponents of video games think that video games have some
disadvantages. Video game players are prone to aggressive thoughts, attitudes, and actions.
Violent video games cause children to be less sensitive to the pain and suffering of others.
Study also shows that these children are more fearful of the world around them. In addition,
video games make the players addicted. Furthermore, too much time on any video
entertainment takes away time spent on school work. As a result, the games cause children
to weaken their school achievement.
In conclusion, parents should limit their children on playing video games. Children can
play video games at their leisure but parents should think about how well balanced it is.
Violent video games also can be thought as treats.

Nelson Rohilahla Mandela was born in Transkei, South Africa on July 18, 1918. His
father was Hendry Mphakanyiswa of the Tembu Tribe. Mandela himself was educated at
University College of Fort Hare and the University of Witwatersrand where he studied law.
He joined the African National Congress in 1944 and was engaged in resistance against the
ruling National Partys apartheid policies after 1948. He went on trial for treason in 1956-
1961 and was acquitted in 1961.
After the banning of the ANC in 1960, Nelson Mandela argued for the setting up of a
military wing within the ANC. In June 1961, the ANC executive considered his proposal on
the use of violent tactics and agreed that those members who wished to involve themselves
in Mandelas campaign would not be stopped from doing so by the ANC. This led to the
formation of Umkhonto we Sizwe.
Mandela was arrested in 1962 and sentenced to five years imprisonment with hard
labor. In 1963, when many fellow leaders of the ANC and the Umkhonto we Sizwe were
arrested, Mandela was brought to stand trial with them for plotting to overthrow the
government by violence. His statement from the dock received considerable international
publicity. On June 12, 1964, eight of the accused, including Mandela, were sentenced to life
imprisonment. From 1964 to 1982, he was incarcerated at Robben Island Prison, off Cape
Town; thereafter, he was at Pollsmor Prison, nearby on the mainland.
During his years in prison, Nelson Mandelas reputation grew steadily. He was widely
accepted as the most significant black leader in South Africa and became a potent symbol of
resistance as the anti-apartheid movement gathered strength. He consistently refused to
compromise his political position to obtain his freedom.
Nelson Mandela was released on February 11, 1990. After his release, he plunged
himself wholeheartedly into his lifes work, striving to attain the goals he and others had set
out almost four decades earlier.
