PART III: READING COMPREHENSION
Directions: Read the following passages carefully and choose the correct answer for each of
the questions.

Passage 1

Cider is not normally associated with the health-preserving yoga crowd. Such sensitive souls tend to crunch
apples with names like Honeycrisp and Royal Gala and leave the fermented juice of Broxwood Foxwhelp and
Somerset Redstreak to a hairier variety of human. But hope springs eternal. After the successful rebranding of red
wine as a health-enhancing drink a few years ago (at least, if consumed in moderation), Britain’s cidermakers hope
that the same thing might come true for their own nectar.
The magic word that makes them think this is “phenolics”. Phenolic compounds help give cider its taste,
but they also have antioxidant properties. That means they destroy certain sorts of oxygen-rich molecules that have
been linked, at least circumstantially, to age-related complaints such as heart disease, neurodegeneration and
cancer. Britain’s National Association of Cider Makers has thus sponsored Serena Marks, a researcher at the
University of Glasgow, to look into the matter.

Ms. Marks’s first task was to measure the phenolic content of 24 types of British cider apple. Encouragingly,
she found that all of them contain more phenolic compounds than Golden Delicious, a bland variety of eating
apple. Some contain ten times as much. The question is, do those phenolics help cider drinkers?
As part of her efforts to find that out, Ms. Marks's freezer is now full of plasma and urine collected from
cider enthusiasts. The samples were taken last week from 12 volunteers who went away 50 pounds ($95) richer for
having imbibed a cider breakfast after 36 hours without consuming any antioxidant-containing food or drink. These
sample should reveal how many of the phenolics found of the phenolics found in cider are excreted. They should
also give clues as to how the rest are metabolized — in other words, whether they might give any health benefits.
In particular, Ms. Marks wants to know if the cidrous molecules that make it into the blood are those
associated with a reduced likelihood of developing afflictions such as heart disease. If they are, it might mean that
there is some truth to the old proverb that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Provided, of course, that the
apple comes in liquid form with wasps floating in it.

51. The first paragraph suggests that currently cider is not considered a/an ________ drink.

a. rare c. prestigious

b. wholesome d. expensive

a. associating Cider with fresh apples

b. importing more red wine into England

c. consuming red wine in moderation

d. promoting cider as a health-enhancing drink

53. Which is NOT an apple that is normally consumed fresh?



a. Honeycrisp c. Royal Gala

b. Somerset Redstreak d. Golden Delicious

54. To find out whether cider offers health benefits, Britain’s National Association of Cider Makers has ________.

a. coined the term “phenolics” to describe cider's uniqueness

b. claimed that cider has antioxidant properties 

c. funded a research study to investigate phenolic contents

d. proved that cider can reduce age-related complaints

55. The passage implies all the following EXCEPT________.

a. all cider apples contain more phenolics than eating apples

b. there are many types of apples that can be made into cider

c. the subjects who participated in the study received a cash reward

d. the urine and blood samples must be kept in a cold place

56. The volunteers refrained from consuming any other antioxidant-containing food or drink for 36 hours _____.

a. to minimize the excretion of cider

b. because they did not like drinking alcohol

c. after they have given the blood samples

d. to ensure that any detected phenolics come from cider


57. We can infer that her sponsor hopes Ms. Marks can prove that.

a. phenolic compounds give cider a better taste
b. certain sorts of oxygen-rich molecules cause cancer

c. cider has properties to reduce age-related health problems

d. the old proverb “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” is true

58. At present we can conclude that ________.

Passage 2 

Koreans take their kimchi very seriously. A fiery side-dish made of cabbage pickled with plenty of chilly and
served with every Korean meal including breakfast is the nearest thing to a culinary national treasure. So when
South Koreans food-Safety watchdog announced last month that parasite eggs had been found in kimchi imported
from China, the resulting public revulsion was tinged with indignation at the insult to a national icon. This deepened
after officials from the Korea Food and Drug Administration (FDA) speculated that the eggs could have found their
way on to the cabbage from human excrement, used as fertilizer.
The skirmish promptly threatened to become a full-scale trade war. China listed ten South Korean
food products (including, you guessed it, kimchi) bound for the mainland which they said contained parasite eggs
as well. It seemed like tit-for-tat — until South Korea's FDA said it too had discovered similar problems in some
local kimchi.
The threat of a trade spat has now receded but this is not the first scare involving food originating from
China. Earlier concerns range from the traces of lead found in Chinese-produced kimchi to the discovery of
malachite green, a suspected carcinogen, in fishery products imported from the mainland.
But the ballooning volume of trade between China and South Korea means the two neighbours cannot
allow disputes over food imports to get out of hand. At stake is around $100 billion-worth of bilateral trade—
which matters most to South Korea since China is South Korea's biggest export market. The two countries have now
agreed to co-operate on improving monitoring and quarantine procedures for traded food. That way, in future, some
of the fierier effects of kimchi may be avoided.

59. The author describes kimchi's flavor as ________.


a. hot-tasting c. bitter

b. bland d. salty

60. Learning that parasite eggs had been found in kimchi imported from China, South Koreans had many feelings
EXCEPT ________.

a. angry c. insulted

b. shocked d. indifferent

61. It is implied that China ________.

a. has used a lot of chemical fertilizers on cabbage

b. has produced many contaminated food products

c. has a small volume of trade with South Korea

d. is unwilling to control the quality of foods they export

a. intensify their problems

b. ensure the quality of traded foods

c. boost trading costs

d. avoid the fiery taste of kimchi

Passage 3
It is bad enough that the Earth may be experiencing the largest mass extinction since the dinosaurs died
out. Almost as bad—at least for science—is that as many as 90% of those species are dying without ever having
been recorded. However, a new, rapid method for classifying species may ameliorate the latter problem, and help
researchers to get at the question of just how much is being lost.
DNA barcoding, a technique proposed last year by Paul Hebert of the University of Geulph, in Ontario,
Canada, has just had its first trials, and has passed them with flying colors. It works by examining a particular part of
a particular gene that is found in all animal species. The gene in question is called cytochrome c oxidase I (COI). It is
easy to study because every cell contains lots of copies of its simple, easily isolated structures called mitochondria.
By contrast, most genes are hidden away in a cell's nucleus, where they are much harder to get at. Mitochondrial
genes also tend to mutate rapidly, so meaningful differences between species build up quickly. And by
concentrating on a mere part of COI — a section which is 648 genetic “letters” long—Dr. Hebert has simplified the
process still further. It is these “letters” that he refers to as the “barcode”. All members of a species would be
expected to have similar barcodes.


CU-TEP/TU-GET BOOT CAMP 2015 page 12


! www.interpass.in.th
FB: interpassinstitute Tel: 089-996-4256
The first trial, just published in an online journal, sought to establish that the results of genetic barcoding
agree with those of traditional taxonomy—the labor-intensive process of classifying species by their physical
characteristics. In the study, DNA samples from birds classified by traditional taxonomy into 26 species were
subjected to the technique. In almost all cases, the two classifications agreed. But Dr. Hebert’s technique went
further. lt suggested that four of the traditional species are each made up of two closely related species, and
should be split.
That observation presaged the second study, which explicitly addresses the question of such “cryptic
species”. This recently published study examined a butterfly called Astraptes fulgerator, which was first classified in
1775. But there have, for a long time, been doubts about whether Astraptes fulgerator really is a single species,
That is because although the adults look similar, the caterpillars vary quite a lot, and also seem to prefer different
food plants. Barcoding showed that these suspicions are well-founded. Ten sorts of barcode turned up, suggesting
that the butterfly actually consists of at least ten species — and that is only the number from the part of north-
western Costa Rica where the specimens tested came from. At the moment, estimates for the number of
multicellular species in existence range from 10m to 100m — hence the uncertainty about how fast they are
becoming extinct. Barcoding might also let scientists identify hot spots of genetic diversity, and work to protect
those areas first.

66. The purpose of the passage is to ________.



a. describe a recent biological means which is claimed to accurately classify species on Earth

b. state the problem of a number of species on Earth which have been dying without being noticed or
reported
c. present some research findings on cytochrome C oxidase I which can delay the extinction of species
on Earth

d. compare two methods of classifying species into taxonomy and give their supporting empirical
evidence

a. address c. prolong

b. identify d. relieve

a. “them” (paragraph 2) refers to “species”

b. “its” (paragraph 2) refers to “cytochrome c oxidase I”

c. “it” (paragraph 3) refers to “the first trial”

Passage 4

Earlier this year, the regulators at the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) agreed to consider an unusual
new drug, called ATryn, for approval. It was developed to treat patients with hereditary antithrombin deficiency, a
condition that leaves them vulnerable to deep-vein thrombosis. ATryn is special as it is a therapeutic protein derived
from the milk of a genetically engineered goat; in other words, an animal that is not all goat.

The human gene for the protein in question is inserted into a goat's egg, and to ensure that it is activated
only in udder cells, an extra piece of DNA, known as beta-caseine promoter, is added alongside it. Since beta
caseine is made only in udders, so is the antithrombin produced in healthy humans.

ATryn is merely the first of many potential animal-derived drugs being developed by GEC Biotherapeutics of
Framingham, Massachusetts. Female goats are ideal living factories because they are cheap, can be sequestered
from other non-transgenic animals, and can produce as much as a kilogram of human protein per year. GEC
estimates that it may be able to produce drugs for as little as $1-2 per gram, compared with around $150 using
conventional methods. Goats’ short gestation period — roughly five months — and the fact that they reach

CU-TEP/TU-GET BOOT CAMP 2015 page 14


! www.interpass.in.th
FB: interpassinstitute Tel: 089-996-4256
maturity within a year means that a new production line can be developed within 18 months. And increasing
production is as simple as breeding more animals.
But perhaps the most curious approach to making transgenic-animal-derived medicines is that being taken
by Minos BioSystems. While others concentrate on goats, Minos is using flies. A Small handful of common house
flies can produce billions of offspring. A single fly can lay 500 eggs that hatch into larvae, a biomass factory capable
of expressing growth hormone or antibodies which can then be extracted from the larval serum. The set-up cost of
producing antibodies using flies would be $20-40m, compared with $200, to $1 billion using conventional methods.

It all sounds promising, but the fact remains that medicines derived from transgenic animals are
commercially untested. The EMEA’s verdict is expected before the end of the year. Nevertheless, as other
proponents of genetically modified crops have learned in recent years, it takes more than just scientific data to
convince biotech’s critics that their fear and loathing are misplaced.

73. The passage primarily ________.



a. discusses biotechnological innovations in the drug industry

b. advocates medicines derived from genetically modified animals

c. emphasizes the significance of biotechnological innovations in medical treatments

d. describes some advantages and disadvantages of using biotechnology in medicine

74. The word “it” (paragraph 2) refers to ________.

a. is one of the first drugs to be approved by the European Medicines Agency

b. can now be used to treat patients with hereditary antithrombin deficiency

c. is a therapeutic protein derived from the milk of a transgenic goat

INSTRUCTIONS

PARTS II - VI

The reading texts have a number of questions following them. In each case, select the best answer for each
question and blacken the number of your choice on the answer sheet.

PART II

As a foreigner in Thailand, I’m not encumbered by cultural restrictions on speaking out about discomfort,
and we have to say that the noise here is louder and more pervasive than what we hear in our

home countries.

To spend any time in Thailand, one must be inured to loud noise or it would be like walking through a
blizzard dressed only in pajamas. Neither are monks nor their temples exempt from loud noise. One may wonder
how they could meditate, Thai shopping malls are like oversized boom boxes.

It’s a similar story on a bus, in a boat, in the skytrain in Bangkok or in a restaurant. Leisurely strolls in a quiet
street in Bangkok are next to impossible. Such places as post offices and banks are not a source of

refuge either.

Excessive noise is not only in the cities. In the countryside growls of internal combustion engines and
loudspeaker noise from outdoor festivals can often be heard.

Thailand relies on tourism to supply a major portion of its revenue. Offensive noise annoys tourists and
lessens their probability of returning to Thailand. They also tell others when they return home. More importantly,
noise pollution lessens quality of life for Thais.

PART III

Your partner says sorry and promises the hurtful behavior won’t happen again—but you fear it will, and
most of the times it does. At times you wonder whether you are imagining the abuse, yet the emotional or physical
pain you feel is real. You may even wonder if the abuse is your fault. If this sounds familiar, you may be
experiencing domestic violence.

Domestic violence occurs between people in an intimate relationship, either heterosexual or homosexual.
Men are sometimes abused by partners, but domestic violence is most often directed toward women. Some
relationships are clearly abusive from the outset. However, abuse often starts subtly and gets worse over time. If
you are in a secret lesbian relationship, you may be less likely to seek help after an assault.

Domestic violence also affects children. Even if your child is not abused, simply witnessing domestic
violence can be harmful. Children who grow up in abusive homes are more likely to be abused and have
behavioural problems than are other children. Growing up, they are more likely to become abusers or think abuse is
a routine part of a relationship. ___________________________________________________________________________________________ .

Many people think that domestic violence only occurs in deprived families, but in reality abusers come
from all walks of life including well educated, professional, apparently respectable members of society.

Many people think that drinking alcohol causes abusive behaviour, but in reality alcohol can be one factor.
Some men only abuse their partners when drinking, some only do it when sober, and some do it drunk or sober.
Drinking can provide an easy excuse, but is not a root cause of the choice to act violently.
Police in different countries recognise that only a very small percentage of domestic violence situations are
ever reported. The longer you stay in an abusive relationship, the greater the toll on your self-esteem. Still, the
only way to break the cycle of domestic violence is to take action—and the sooner the better. Start by telling
someone about the abuse, whether it is a friend, relative, doctor or other close contact. At first, you may find it hard
to talk about the abuse, but you will also likely feel relief and receive much-needed support.

51. The main idea of the text is _________________ .



a. domestic violence is a serious threat to both men and women.
b. domestic violence is a major public health problem and a violation of human rights

c. violence by an intimate partner is one of the most common forms of violence against women
d. health consequences can result directly from Violent acts or from long-term domestic violence
