VI. There are 11 mistakes in the following text. The first mistake is corrected as an example numbered 0. Find the other mistakes and correct them. Write your answer in the corresponding numbered boxes (36-45) on the answer sheet. 

Example: 0. line 1: Much -> Many Line

1     Much women nowadays choose to have a baby without getting married. They are

2     usually well-off, single professionals who, in their thirty, find that work is not everything

3     and so decide to have a baby. They don't want to find a husband and have a regular

4     family but only want to be mothers. They find a partner to be the father of their baby, but

5     the man doesn't often know that the baby will be him) The women claim they don't need

6     a man to keep a family and bring up a child: they prefer to do it on her own.

7     Psychologists say that a child can develop normally only in a complete family with a

8      loving mother and a loving father. The child who grows with a father lacks his love and

9      guidance, and also the role-model that a father provides. This is especially important in

10    the case of boys. In some cases so children can even develop serious psychological

11     disorders.

12     Also, the social situation of a single mother and a child whose father is neither unknown

13    or far away has to be taken into account. Despite the years when a single mother would

14    be ostracized are luckily gone, it still happens that children without fathers can feel

15    awkward at school, especially when their peers boast about their own fathers

16    The importance of a father in a child life is unquestionable. Even if the fighters for the

17    emancipation of women claim that mothers can take care of their sons by themselves,

18    the situation is a little bit different. Fathers are replaceable because their love has much

19    to say in the well-being of children.

20   One in all single mothers are to be appreciated for their courage but at the same time

21   they should always think twice before taking this crucial decision in their lives.

VII. Answer questions 46-59 by referring to the magazine article describing new technologies and choosing the right paragraph (A-G) that matches with each of the following statements.

Some of the choices may be required more than once.

About which new aspect(s) of technology are the following mentioned?

Our Changing World

So many new technologies have appeared in the past half-century that it's impossible to list them all. But these eight high-tech breakthroughs stand out over the last 50 years because they've revolutionised the way we live.

Paragraph A

In 1954, Dr Joseph Murray removed a kidney from one human patient and implanted it in another. The recipient accepted the kidney as its own rather than rejecting it as a foreign body. It was more than skilful surgery: Murray had chosen a pair of identical twins, Ronald Herrick and his terminally ill brother Richard, in the hope that their similar genetic makeup would reduce the likelihood of Richard's body rejecting Ronald's kidney. Soon afterward, though, other researchers developed drugs that could suppress a transplant recipient's immune systemlong enough for the new  organ to become incorporated into its new body. Each year, thousands of people receive a new heart, kidney, liver, lung. pancreas or intestine - and are given a lease of life.

Paragraph B

The term 'robot was coined by Czechoslovakian playwright. Karel Capek, in 1920 - 'robota being a Czech word for tedious labour - but the first real industrial robot was built in 1954 by George Devol. Five years later, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology founded its Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in a quest to mechanically mimic human minds as well as hands. Today, robots assemble products better, faster and often cheaper than manual labourers. Still, some individuals eye such systems with the cynical view of novelist Kurt Vonnegut, whose 1952 story Player Piano warned that the machines might leave people without a way to make a living or a purpose in life.

Paragraph C

When the Queen herself threw the switch on the world's first atomic power plant at Calder Hall outside London in 1956, nuclear reactors were seen as a source of cheap, pollution-free energy. But a partial meltdown in 1979 at the Three Mile Island reactor in Pennsylvania soured the world on nuclear energy as a safe source of power. Nonetheless, in Britain today there are 16 active plants that generate 25 percent of the nation's electricity and they have been steadily increasing their capability. Will the next 50 years bring a better alternative?

Paragraph D

The idea for a mobile phone service dates back at least to 1947, but the first call was not actually made until 1973. This initial call was made on the pavement outside the Manhattan Hilton by Martin Cooper, a Motorola researcher, who rang up his rival at AT&T Bell Labs to test the new phone. Thirty years later, it appears that almost everyone in the Western world has a mobile device growing out of their ear and cellular networks are beginning to serve Internet access at broadband speeds through thin air.

Paragraph E

Viewers of the famed moon walk in 1969, who are now decreased, would have been disappointed to learn we never went further than the Moon - no Mars colony, no 2001 odyssey to Jupiter, no speed-of-light spaceships. Even the Shuttle is in trouble. But the space race against the Russians that dominated the American psyche (and a good chunk of its budget) in the '60s and '70s pushed the development of hundreds of enabling technologies, including synthetic fibres and integrated computer circuits, necessary to fly astronauts to the moon and back. And, far more importantly, the astronauts brought back a lesson from space: 'We saw the earth the size of a coin, and we realised then that there is only one earth.'

Paragraph F

Before IBM recast the desktop computer from hobbyist's gadget to office automation tool in 1983 - followed by Apple's people-friendly Macintosh a year later - a 'minicomputer' was the size of a washing machine and required a special air-conditioned room. But the tra technicians who operated the old mainframes already knew computers were cool the use them to play games, keep diaries, and trade messages with friends across the counted still looking busy. Today, thanks to the PC, we all look busy.

Paragraph G

Everyone knows Watson and Crick, who unravelled the secret of DNA in 1953. But have you heard of Boyer and Cohen, who constructed the first organism with combined DNA from different species in 1973? They inserted toad genes into a bacterium that then replicated itself over and over, passing the toad's genetic code down through generations of bacteria. Thirty years later, an estimated 70 percent of processed foods contain genetically modified ingredients, such as soybeans or corn engineered for higher crop yields. Of course, the much bigger potential - good and bad - is in engineering humans. It might prevent birth defects, and diseases later in life. But the side effects could be disastrous and, do we really have the right to interfere with Mother Nature?

VIII. Choose the best phrase or sentence (given below the text) to fill each of the blanks in the following text. Write one letter (A-G) in the corresponding numbered boxes on the answer sheet. Two of the suggested answers do not fit at all. There is an example at the beginning (0). Example: (0) J

Indo-European Languages

Today, most European languages, and many Asian languages as far east as India, are very similar to each other. (0)___J____about memorizing French word lists in school, these so-called 'Indo-European languages resemble English and each other in terms of vocabulary and grammar (60)_______ . Only 140 of the modern world's 5,000 tongues belong to this language family, (61)_______  . Thanks to the global expansion of Europeans since 1492 - especially people from England, Spain, Portugal, France and Russia - nearly half the world's present population of five billion now speaks an Indo-European language as its native tongue.

When, however, we go to parts of the world (62)_______, we realise how unusual Europe's linguistic similarity is, and how it calls for explanation. (63)_______, in areas of the New Guinea highlands (64)_______, we find languages as different as English is from Chinese being spoken in neighbouring areas. (65) _______until some people speaking the mother tongue of the Indo-European language family began to dominate and pushed almost all other European languages out of existence.

A. as well as French

B. Eurasia must have originally been as diverse

C. For example

D. which must have originated outside Europe

E. yet differ in this respect from all the world's other languages

F. In spite of this

G where contact with the outside world began only in the 20th century

H. but their importance is far out of proportion to their numbers

I. with great linguistic diversity

J. No matter how much we complain

IX. For questions 66-75, complete the following article by writing the missing words in the spaces. Use only one word for each space. There is an example at the beginning (0).

The future at your fingertips

There is a scene in the film Minority Report in (0) which Tom Cruise stands in front of a vast Perspex-like screen housed in the police department's Pre-Crime Unit. He gazes (66)_______earnest at the transparent surface, waving his hands across the tablet to swirl great chunks of text and moving images across the screen to form a storyboard of yetto-be-committed crimes. (67) _______ a simple twist of his finger or a flick of his wrist, pictures expand and enlarge, words scroll, and whole trains of thought come to tangible fruition (68)_______there on the board. The year is 2054.

Yet it seems the era of true touch-screen technology is much closer than that. Indeed, when Apple boss Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone in San Francisco earlier this year, he grandly declared: "We're reinventing the cell phone." (69)_______ of the main reasons for Jobs' bold claim was the iPhone's futuristic user interface - "multi-touch". As demonstrated on stage by Jobs (70)_______ multi-touch was created to make the most of the iPhone's large screen. (71)_______ most existing smart phones, the iPhone has only one conventional button - all the rest of the controls appear on the screen, adapting and morphing around your fingertips as you use the device, rather like the giant tablet in Minority Report.

The demonstration iPhone handset certainly looked like re-invention, but multi-touch, while new for Apple, is (72)_______ no means a new technology. The concept has been (73)_______ for years, waiting for the hardware side of the equation to get small enough, smart enough and cheap enough to make it a reality. While it remains (74)_______ of a novelty now, there's a good chance that the coming years will bring many more computers and consumer gadgets that depend wholly or (75) on multi-touch concepts.
