Текст № 1
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon moves in front of the Sun and hides at least some
part of the Sun from the earth. In a partial eclipse, the Moon covers part of the Sun; in an annular
eclipse, the Moon covers the center of the Sun, leaving a bright ring of light around the Moon; in a
total eclipse, the Sun is completely covered by the Moon.
It seems rather improbable that a celestial body the size of the Moon could completely block
out the tremendously immense Sun, as happens during a total eclipse, but this is exactly what
happens. Although the Moon is considerably smaller in size than the Sun, the Moon is able to cover
the Sun because of their relative distances from Earth. A total eclipse can last up to 7 minutes,
during which time the Moon’s shadow moves across Earth at a rate of about 6 kilometers per
This passage mainly …
describes how long an eclipse will last
gives facts about the Moon
explains how the Moon is able to obscure the Sun
informs the reader about solar eclipses
In which type of eclipse is the Sun obscured in its entirety?
A partial eclipse
An annular eclipse
A total eclipse
A celestial eclipse
The word “ring”(in italics) could best be replaced by …
piece of gold
A “celestial body” in paragraph 2 is most probably one that is found …
within the Moon's shadow
somewhere in the sky
on the surface of the Sun
inside the Earth's atmosphere
What is the meaning of “block out” in line 6?
According to the passage, how can the Moon hide the Sun during a total eclipse?
The fact that the Moon is closer to Earth than the Sun makes up for the
Moon's smaller size.
The Moon can only obscure the Sun because of the Moon’s great distance
from the earth.
Because the Sun is relatively close to Earth, the Sun can be eclipsed by the
The Moon hides the Sun because of the Moon’s considerable size.
Текст № 2
Most people think of deserts as dry, flat areas with little vegetation and little or no rainfall,
but this is hardly true. Many deserts have varied geographical formations ranging from soft, rolling
hills to stark, jagged cliffs, and most deserts have a permanent source of water. Although deserts
do not receive a high amount of rainfall — to be classified as a desert, an area must get less than
twenty-five centimeters of rainfall per year — there are many plants that thrive on only small
amounts of water, and deserts are often full of such plant life.
Desert plants have a variety of mechanisms for obtaining the water needed for survival.
Some plants, such as cactus, are able to store large amounts of water in their leaves or stems; after
a rainfall these plants absorb a large supply of water to last until the next rainfall. Other plants, such
as the mesquite, have extraordinarily deep root systems that allow them to obtain water from far
below the desert’s arid surface.
What is the main topic of the passage?
Deserts are dry, flat areas with few plants
There is little rainfall in the desert.
Many kinds of vegetation can survive with little water.
Deserts are not really flat areas with little plant life.
The passage describes the geography of deserts as …
void of vegetation
Which of the following is mentioned in the passage about cacti?
They have deep root systems.
They retain water from one rainfall to the next.
They survive in the desert because they do not need water.
They get water from deep below the surface of the desert.
The passage implies that …
the typical conception of a desert is incorrect
all deserts are dry, flat areas
most people are well informed about deserts
the lack of rainfall in deserts causes the lack of vegetation
The word “mechanisms” (in italics) could most easily be replaced by …
The word “arid” (in italics) means …
Текст № 3
After inventing dynamite, Swedish-born Alfred Nobel became a very rich man. However,
he foresaw its universally destructive powers too late. Nobel preferred not to be remembered as
the inventor of dynamite, so in 1895, just two weeks before his death, he created a fund to be used
for awarding prizes to people who had made worthwhile contributions to humanity. Originally
there were five awards: literature, physics, chemistry, medicine, and peace. Economics was added
in 1968, just sixty-seven years after the first awards ceremony. Nobel’s original legacy of nine
million dollars was invested, and the interest on this sum is used for the awards which vary from
$30,000 to $125,000. Every year on December 10, the anniversary of Nobel’s death, the awards
(gold medal, illuminated diploma, and money) are presented to the winners. Sometimes politics
plays an important role in the judges’ decisions. Americans have won numerous science awards,
but relatively few literature prizes. No awards were presented from 1940 to 1942 at the beginning
of World War II. Some people have won two prizes, but this is rare; others have shared their prizes.
The Nobel Prize was established in order to …
1) recognize worthwhile contributions to humanity
2) resolve political differences
3) honor the inventor of dynamite
4) spend money
In which area have Americans received the most awards?
All of the following statements are true EXCEPT …
1) awards vary in monetary value
2) ceremonies are held on December 10 to commemorate Nobel
3) politics plays an important role in selecting the winners
4) no individuals have won two awards
How much money did Nobel leave for the prizes?
What is the main idea of this passage?
1) Alfred Nobel became very rich when he invented dynamite.
2) Alfred Nobel created awards in six categories for contributions to humanity.
3) Alfred Nobel left all of his money to science.
4) Alfred Nobel made a lasting contribution to humanity.
