Read the passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct
answer to each of the following questions.
Cooperation is the common endeavor of two or more people to perform a task or reach a jointly
cherished goal. Like competition and conflict, there are different forms of cooperation, based on group
organization and attitudes.
In the first form, known as primary cooperation, group and individual fuse. The group contains
nearly all of each individuals life. The rewards of the groups work are shared with each member.
There is an interlocking identity of individual, group and task performed. Means and goals become one,
for cooperation itself is valued.
While primary cooperation is most often characteristic of preliterature societies, secondary
cooperation is characteristic of many modern societies. In secondary cooperation, individuals devote
only part of their lives to the group. Cooperation itself is not a value. Most members of the group feel
loyalty, but the welfare of the group is not the first consideration. Members perform tasks so that they
can separately enjoy the fruits of their cooperation in the form of salary, prestige, or power. Business
offices and professional athletic teams are examples of secondary cooperation.
In the third type, called tertiary cooperation or accommodation, latent conflict underlies the
shared work. The attitudes of the cooperating parties are purely opportunistic: the organization is loose
and fragile. Accommodation involves common means to achieve antagonistic goals: it breaks down
when the common means cease to aid each party in reaching its goals. This is not, strictly speaking,
cooperation at all, and hence the somewhat contradictory term antagonistic cooperation is sometimes
used for this relationship.
Question 6: What is the authors main purpose in the first paragraph of the passage?
A. To urge readers to cooperate more often
B. To offer a brief definition of cooperation
C. To explain how cooperation differs from competition and conflict
D. To show the importance of group organization and attitudes

Read the passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct
answer to each of the following questions.
Large animals that inhabit the desert have evolved a number of adaptations for reducing the effects of
extreme heat. One adaptation is to be light in color, and to reflect rather than absorb the Suns rays.
Desert mammals also depart from the normal mammalian practice of maintaining a constant body
temperature. Instead of trying to keep down the body temperature deep inside the body, which would
involve the expenditure of water and energy, desert mammals allow their temperatures to rise to what
would normally be fever height, and temperatures as high as 46 degrees Celsius have been measured in
Grants gazelles. The overheated body then cools down during the cold desert night, and indeed the
temperature may fall unusually low by dawn, as low as 34 degrees Celsius in the camel. This is an
advantage since the heat of the first few hours of daylight is absorbed in warming up the body, and an
excessive buildup of heat does not begin until well into the day.
Another strategy of large desert animals is to tolerate the loss of body water to a point that would be
fatal for non-adapted animals. The camel can lose up to 30 percent of its body weight as water without
harm to itself, whereas human beings die after losing only 12 to 13 percent of their body weight. An
equally important adaptation is the ability to replenish this water loss at one drink. Desert animals can
drink prodigious volumes in a short time, and camels have been known to imbibe over 100 liters in a few
minutes. A very dehydrated person, on the other hand, cannot drink enough water to rehydrate at one
session, because the human stomach is not sufficiently big and because a too rapid dilution of the body
fluids causes death from water intoxication. The tolerance of water loss is of obvious advantage in the
desert, as animals do not have to remain near a water hole but can obtain food from grazing sparse and
far-flung pastures. Desert-adapted mammals have the further ability to feed normally when extremely
dehydrated, it is a common experience in people that appetite is lost even under conditions of moderate
thirst.

A. Weather variations in the desert. B. Adaptations of desert animals.
