Read the passage and choose the best answer.

Synchronized swimming is a water sport that combines grace, rhythm, and acrobatic skills. In this sport, swimmers perform certain movements to music that they have selected. They synchronized these movements with the rhythm and the mood of the music. Synchronized swimming was once called water ballet. It began as a form of exhibition swimming at water shows. In 1952, the first international rules were established for synchronized swimming as a sport.

International competition is divided into solo, duet and team events. A team may have four to eight members. Each solo, duet or team event has three sections: figures, technical routines and free routines. Figures are acrobatic movements. Technical routines must include certain required figures. Free routines may consist of any listed figures, strokes or parts of figures or strokes. A panel of judges awards points for each figure and routine. After each figure, the judges grade swimmers according to the difficulty of the figure and how well they performed it. The judges give each routine two scores, one for technical merit and one for artistic impression.

In water shows and swimming exhibitions, swimmers often base their synchronized routines on a story or a theme. For example, a team might act out a tale, such as Alice in Wonderland, with the aid of a narrator, or they might choose a theme, such as the seasons of the year and expressively interpret the mood of each season.

Read the passage and choose the best answer to each question.

A recent investigation by scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey shows that strange animal behavior might help predict earthquakes. Investigators found such occurrences within a ten kilometer radius of the epicenter of a fairly recent quake. Some birds screeched and flew about wildly; dogs yelped and ran around uncontrollably.

Scientists believe that animals can perceive environmental changes several hours or even days before mishap. Animals were noted as being restless for several weeks before an Uzbekistan earthquake. An hour before the disaster, domestic animals refused to go indoors, and dogs howled and barked furiously. In 1960, an earthquake struck Agadir in Morocco. Survivors recall that stray animals, including dogs, were seen streaming out of town before the earthquake. In s safari zoo near San Francisco, llamas would not eat the evening before a 1979 quake, and they ran around wildly all night.

Unusual animal behavior preceding earthquakes has been noted for centuries. British Admiral Robert Fitzroy reported huge flocks of screaming seabirds over Concepcion, Chile, in 1835. An hour and a half later, dogs were seen fleeing, and ten minutes later the town was destroyed. Similar stories of chickens running around in apparent states of panic, horse trembling, and dogs barking incessantly were recorded throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by survivors of earthquake destruction in India, Yugoslavia, Peru, Mexico, and the United States.

In 1976, after monitoring bizarre animal behavior, the Chinese predicted a devastating earthquake. Although hundreds of thousands of people were killed, the government was able to evacuate million of other people and thus keep the death toll at a lower level.

46.  What prediction may be made by observing animal behavior?

      A. The possibility of an earthquake’s occurrence              B. The number of people who will die

      C. The ten kilometer radius from the epicenter               D. The fact that an earthquake has occurred

47.  The word “evacuate” is closest in meaning to

      A. remove             B. exile                        C. destroy                    D. emaciate

48.  All of the following statements are true EXCEPT

      A. some animals may be able to sense and approaching earthquake

      B. by observing animal behavior scientists perhaps can predict earthquakes

      C. the Chinese have successfully predicted an earthquake ad saved many lives

      D. only dogs and horses seem to process the special perception that allows them to predict earthquakes.

49.  The passage implies that if scientist can accurately predict earthquakes, there will be

      A. fewer animals going crazy                     B. a lower death rate

      C. fewer people evacuated                         D. fewer environmental changes

50.  The main idea of this passage is that

      A. earthquakes can be prevented by observing animal behavior                      

      B. scientists can interpret animal behavior

      C. observing animal behavior can help people prepare for earthquakes        

      D. people need to prepare animals for earthquakes
