Text for questions 33 to 36
Nature has always provided a stimulus for inventive minds. Early flying machines clearly were an attempt to emulate the freedom of birds. Architects and engineers have often consciously modeled buildings on forms found in nature. A more recent example of the inspsiration given by nature is the invention of Velcro. The inventor of this now common fastening device noticed that small burrs attached to his dog’s coat grasped the hairs by means of tiny hooks. This led him to invent a synthetice fabric whose surfaces mimic the clasping properties of this natural seapod.
Animals and plants have evolved solutions to the kinds of problems that often interest engineers and designers. Much current research in material science is concerned with actively examining the natural world, especially at the molecular level, for inspiration to develop materials with novel properties. This relatively new field of study is sometimes known as biomimetics, since it consciously attempts to mimic nature. Then, researchers have investigated several interesting areas.
Predictions for future inventions that may be developed from these lines of research include so called smart structures that design and repair themselves in a similar way to a variety of processes in the natural world. For example, engineers have envisaged bridges that would detect areas heavily stressed by vehicle movement or wind. The bridge structure would then automatically add or move material to the weak areas until the stress is reduced. The same principle might be used to repair damaged buildings. Other new materials that have been imagined are substances that would copy photosythesis in green plants in order to create new energy sources. The potential impact of biometric research is so great that twenty first century may come to be known as the “Age of Materials”.
33. The passage is concerned with ....
a. the development of products based on nature
b. the effect of the Age Materials on nature
c. problems that preoccupy designers and engineers
d. future reserach into the uses of Velcro
e. problems that preoccupy architecs and engineers
34. Why does the author mentions Velcro?
a. to show how a natural structure inspired a useful invention
b. to complain that burrs attach themselves to his dog’s coat
c. to give an example of tiny hooklike structure in synthetic fabric
d. to suggest the use of Velcro as a means of fastening objects
e. to notice this now common fastening devices of tiny hooks
35. The word “novel” in paragraph-2 is closest in meaning to....
a. familiar d. fictious
b. unique e. fairy

A kangaroo is an animal found only in Australia, although it has a smaller relative, called wallaby, which lives on the Australian island of Tasmania and also in New Guinea.
Kangaroos eat grass and plants. They have short front legs, but very long and very strong back legs and a tail. These they use for sitting up on and for jumping. Kangaroos have been known to make forward jumps of over eight meters, and leap across fences more than three meters high. They can also run at speeds of over 45 kilometers per hour.

Text-1 for questions 39 to 41
The European battlefront was a very different affair from the situation in the middle-east. Early in April 1917, the first Anzac Corps was transported to that part of northern France known as Flanders. Here they took over a section of the front, south east of Armentiers, facing the powerful, well-trained German Army. Both sides were locked together in an endless array of trenches padded with sandbags and protected by thick belts of barbed wire. The Australians were issued with British steel helmets and gas masks, for the Germans were using poisonous gas in their attack. The first months were fairly quiet. The intermittent artillery and sniper fire contrasted favorably with the terrible conditions at Gallipoli. The troops enjoyed better rations, patrolled “No man’s Land” (the area between the opposing trenches) freely and watched aerial dogfights for amusement.
Gradually, the raids on both sides increased and the troops came to appreciate their helmets and gas masks. The enemy raided first on 5th May and a month later an Australian raiding party, all volunteers, retaliated and succeeded in taking prisoners. More raids followed but they were nothing compared with the battle that was to came in July. On the first of that month, the British launched their tragically famous offensive on the Somme. The battle of the Somme was to become a series of battles against the Germans in northern France, lasting several months.
39. What were the first Anzac Corps facing when they attempted to take over the south east of Armentiers?
a. The France Troops
b. The Australians

Text for questions 42 to 45
Experiments have shown that in selecting personnel for a job, interviewing is, at best, a hindrance and may even cause harm. These studies have disclosed that the judgments of interviewers differ markedly and bear little or no relationship to the adequacy of job applicants. Of the many reasons why this should be the case, four in particular stand out.
The first reason is related to an error of judgment known as the “halo effect.” If a person has one noticeably good trait, his or her other characteristics will be judged as better than they really are. The”horns effect” describes essentiallty the same error, but focuses on one particular bad trait. Interviewers are also prejudiced by the “primacy effect.” This error occurs when interpretation of later information is distorted by earlier related information. But studies have repeatedly demostrated that such an impression is unrelated to the aptitude of the applicant. The phenomenon known as the “contrast effect” also skew the judgment of interviewers. A suitable candidate may be underestimated because he or she is different from a previous one who appears exceptionally intelligent..
Since interviews as a form of personnel selection have been shown to be inadequate, other selection procedures have been devised that more accurately predict candidate suitability. Of the variuos tests devised, the predictor that appears to do this most successfully is the applicant’s cognitive ability as measured by variety of verbal and spatial tests.
42. The passage mainly discuss the....
a. judgments of interview concerning job applicant
b. techniques interviewers use for judging job applicant
c. effect of interviewing on job applicants
d. weaknesses of the job interview process
e. strenghts of the job interview process
43. The word hindrance in paragraph-1 is closets in meaning to .....
a. procedure d. encourgament
b. interference e. measurement
44. “.... his or her other characteristics will be judged as better than they really are.” (paragraph-2). The word “they” refers to....
a. judgments d. characteristics
b. halo effects e. persons
45. The author mentions all the following reasons why interviewing is not an accurate way to predict candidate suitability EXCEPT the...
a. cognitive effect d. hallo effect
b. primacy effect e. horn effect
c. contrast effect

Text for questions 48 to 50.
Since the first production of “Private Lives” in 1930, with the theatre’s two leading sophisticates Noel Coward and Gertrude Lawrence in the leads, the play as tended to be chosen as a vehicle for starts.
QUT Academy of the Arts’ production boasted no ‘stars’, but certainly fielded potential stars in a sparkling performance that brought out just how fine a piece of craftsmanship Coward’s play is. More than 60 years later, what new could be deduced from so familiar a theme? Director Rod Wissler’s highly perceptive approach went beyond the glittery surface of Witty banter to the darker implications beneath.
With the shifting of attitudes to social values, it became clear that Victor and Sibly were potentially the more admirable of the couples, with standards better adjusted than the volatile and self-indulgent Elyot and Amanda.
The wit was there, dexterously ping-ponged to and fro by a vibrant Amanda (Catherine Jones) and a suave Elyot (Daniel Kealy). Julie Eckersley’s Sibly was a delightful creation, and Phillip Cameron-Smith’s more serious playing was just right for Victor. Jodie Levesconte was a superb French maid, James Maclean’s set captured the thirties atmosphere with many subtle touches.
All involved deserve the highest praise.
48. According to the passage, “Private Live” brought out a sparkling performance of the stars because of the great work of ….
a. QUT Academy of the Arts

c. Victor and Sibly
d. Catherine Jones and Daniel Kealy
e. Noel Coward and Gertrude Lawrence
49. Who did act as couples for Victor and Sibly in the “Private Live”?

c. Catherine Jones and Daniel Kealy
d. Jodie Lavesconte and James Maclean
e. Rod Wissler and Noel Coward
50. “All involved deserve the highest praise”. The closest word in meaning to the underlined word is ….
