1.) On meeting a person for the first time, our first question is often “What do you do?” That is, we ask what they do for a living, what their job is because we feel this will help us place them. It helps us to define their status. We can judge where they stand socially, we can make a guess at how much they earn, and through that what kind of a standard of living they can afford. In addition, it can give us a fairly good idea of their educational background. The problem is that people often choose a career for the wrong reasons.

For instance, some people follow in the footsteps of a parent, either entering the same trade or profession, inheriting the family business. Others make exactly the opposite decision, either out of a fierce desire for Independence, or to spite a parent, or simply to get away from family. They decide that whatever else they might do, they will certainly not to pursue a career for which they are unsuited out of hero-worship, or as a result of meeting people they admire. It is a pity that we have to make such an important decision about our future career at a stage in our lives when we are so easily influenced by factors which have little or nothing to do with the central issue, namely, that we should do those things for which we have a natural talent.

Question: Which of the following is not given as an example of a wrong reason for choosing a career?

a. Doing a job that suits your abilities.

b. Deliberately not joining the family business.

c. Following the career path of someone you admire.

d. Doing the same job as one’s parents.


2. Politically, the Roman Empire laid the foundations on which modern Europe was built. Culturally, partly through native genius and partly through absorbing the achievements of the older and richer culture of Greece, its literature became the basis of European values, in particular, those values that arise out of the individual’s relationship to their society. Rome began to produce literature between 300 and 100 BC at about the same time as it was conquering the rich Greek colonies in the south of Italy.

Roman writers and orators began to expand their imaginative and Intellectual horizons and refine the Latin language through the study of Greek literature. Early Roman literature had been basically of two kinds: the recording and examination of public life and behavior through life stories of famous men and the particularly Roman art of satirical comedy and drama.

There were those, however, who objected to the Greek influence, most notably Cato the Censor, who did his best to uphold the virtues of no-nonsense Latin prose against Greek luxury. More typical, and, at the end, more successful, was the poet Ennius, who managed to keep a balance between Greek and Latin values by writing a Homeric epic poem in Latin idiom, but using Greek poetic meter.

Question: According to the text, which of the following statements is true of ancient Roman literature?

a. It was mainly the biographies of famous men.

b. It was subject to heavy censorship.

c. It was deeply influenced by Greek writing.

d. It was mostly satirical.

1.) In 1861, Mathew Brady, a well-known portrait photographer, approached President Lincoln requesting permission to move freely about the country photographing the Civil War. Lincoln granted him permission to travel anywhere with the Union armies, and his record of this conflict brought home to millions the horrors of war. Brady wasn’t the first official war photographer. Six years earlier, Roger Fenton, a lawyer and amateur photographer, had returned from the Crimea, having been personally chosen by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

However, his instructions were more likely to have been to send back work that boosted morale back home rather than the terrible realities of war. Brady’s coverage of the war made him a household name, but he had hundreds of assistants, and it’s even possible that he didn’t take any of the 7,000 pictures that were marketed under his name. But no one else could have organized the large army of photographers needed to cover the broad sweep of the war and provided access to many leading generals and politicians.

Question: Which of the following statements are true of Matthew Brady?

a. He took as many as seven thousand pictures of the war.

b. He was responsible for organizing a large number of photographers.

c. He was able to give his photographers introductions to politicians

d. Before the war, he had been an amateur photographer.

e. He was given permission to travel anywhere in the US.

2. Why do some countries drive on the left, while others the majority- drive on the right? In fact, those that drive on the left make up about twenty-five percent fo teh world’s countries and are, apart from the UK itself, most countries that were British colonies: India, South Africa, Singapore, Jamaica and so on. Japan does too, although it wasn’t a colony, and as late as 2009, Samoa switched from driving on the right largely because they wanted to buy right-hand drive cars made in Japan and New Zealand.

The Romans introduced the custom of keeping to the left, a habit that was reinforced in medieval times when riders throughout Europe passed oncoming strangers sword arm to sword arm – this idea is based on the fact that majority of people are right-handed. An increase in horse traffic towards the end of the 18th century meant that the convention gained strength, but it was not put into law until 1835.

Legend has it that Napoleon is responsible for making the European countries which he conquered keep to the right, for the simple reason either that he was left-hundred himself, or that he wanted to be different from his enemy, England. This is most probably nonsense, but an Emperor’s whims can go a long way. So France, obviously, and Spain, the Netherlands and other countries Napoleon overran used this system, and over the years other countries adopted the practice to make crossing borders easier and safer. the latest European country to convert was Sweden, in 1967
