The following text is for questions 24 to 26.

Faraday studied the magnetic field around a conductor carrying a DC electric current. While conducting these studies, Faraday established the basis for the electromagnetic field concept in physics, subsequently enlarged upon by James Maxwell. He similarly discovered electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism, and laws of electrolysis. He established that magnetism could affect rays of light and that there was an underlying relationship between the two phenomena. His inventions of electromagnetic rotary devices formed the foundation of electric motor technology, and it was largely due to his efforts that electricity became viable for use in technology.
As a chemist, Michael Faraday discovered benzene, investigated the clathrate hydrate of chlorine, invented an early form of the Bunsen burner and the system of oxidation numbers, and popularized terminology such as anode, cathode, electrode, and ion.
Although Faraday received little formal education and knew little of higher mathematics, such as calculus, he was one of the most influential scientists in history. Historians of science refer to him as the best experimentalist in the history of science. The SI unit of capacitance, the farad, is named after him, as is the Faraday constant, the charge on a mole of electrons (about 96,485 coulombs). Faraday's law of induction states that magnetic flux changing in time creates a proportional electromotive force.
Faraday was the first and foremost Fullerian Professor of Chemistry at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, a position to which he was appointed for life.
Albert Einstein kept a photograph of Faraday on his study wall alongside pictures of Isaac Newton and James Clerk Maxwell.
Faraday was highly religious. He was a member of the Sandemanian Church, a Christian sect founded in 1730 that demanded total faith and commitment. Biographers have noted that a strong sense of the unity of God and nature pervaded Faraday's life and work.

24.  What was Michael Faraday expert?
  1. science, history and religion
  2. chemistry, electricity and calculus
  3. electronic, technology and religion
  4. chemistry, physic and mathematics
  5. physic, technology and photography

25.  The main idea of the first paragraph is ….
  1. Faraday and James found the electromagnetic
  2. James invented the motor technology
  3. Faraday found the motor technology
  4. James discovered the diamagnetic
  5. Faraday found the electromagnetic

26.  Which of the following statements closely relates to Michael Faraday?
  1. Michael Faraday dedicated his life in science and religion.
  2. Michael Faraday was downhearted his life in science.
  3. Michael Faraday concentrated his life in technology.
  4. Michael Faraday was one of successful scientists.
  5. Michael Faraday poured his science in technology.

    Bees are insects. There are about 20,000 species or kinds of bees. They live everywhere in the world except on high mountains, in the Arctic and Antarctic, and on some small islands in the ocean.
    Some bees are as small as 0,08 inch (2 millimeters). However, some bees are as big as 1,6 inches (4 centimeters). Bees come in many colors, black, grey, yellow, red, green or blue. Most bees live alone. They are called solitary bees. Meanwhile, some bees live in groups called colonies. They are social bees.
    Bees have three pairs of legs and four wings. Like all insects, they have a head, chest, and abdomen. They have mouthparts and a tongue for collecting nectar. They carry nectar in an organ called a honey stomach.
    Moreover, bees have special wings that enable them to fly like a helicopter. They can fly backward, forward, sideways, or stay in one place in the air.

    Enter the Valley of the Mighty Amazon River and you see the world’s largest tropical rain forest. From the river, the trees that line the banks appear endless and boring, but once you step ashore this feeling of monotony vanishes.
     In this humid jungle country that botanists call the rain forest, there is rain almost everyday of the year. At noon, the sun’s burning rays strike directly down. The warm air rises, carrying water vapor with it. High above the tallest treetops, the air begins to cool and clouds form. They pile into masses and grow darker. The sky takes on a yellow tinge and the whole earth seems to hold its breath. A strange feeling of danger takes hold everywhere. Then, the clouds burst and rain pours down in solid sheets.
     Throughout the day, the great forest seems silent. It is only if you listen carefully that you can hear the rustling of tiny creatures all around you. The incessant whine of mosquitoes soon becomes familiar.
     But at dusk, the sleeping forest stirs. Monkeys known as red howlers start an uproar that makes your scalp tingle when you experience it for the first time. Hearing red howlers, smaller monkeys screech and chatter. Then macaws and parrots squawk, and toucans yell.

The following text is for questions 37 to 39.

The term of “tsunami” comes from the Japanese which means harbor ("tsu") and wave ("nami"). A tsunami is a series of waves generated when water in a lake or a sea is rapidly displaced on a massive scale.
A tsunami can be generated when the sea floor abruptly deforms and vertically displaces the overlying water. Such large vertical movements of the earth's crust can occur at plate boundaries.
Sub-duct ion of earthquakes is particularly effective in generating tsunami and occurs where denser oceanic plates slip under continental plates. As the displaced water mass moves under the influence of gravity to regain its equilibrium, it radiates across the ocean like ripples on a pond.
Tsunami always brings great damage. Most of the damage is caused by the huge mass of water behind the initial wave front, as the height of the sea keeps rising fast and floods powerfully into the coastal area.

  1. Influencing overlying water
  2. Making nature of the sea
  3. Bringing great damage.
  4. Reducing floods

  1. When waves generated and water is rapidly displaced on a massive scale.
  2. When the displaced water mass moves under the influence of gravity.
  3. When the sea floor deforms and displaces the overlying water.
  4. When denser oceanic plates slip under continental plates.
  5. When the huge mass of water behind the initial wave.

Fast food nowadays is considered a normal eating venture. People are not just eating out on special occasions or weekends anymore. It means that all the time they mostly eat fast foods. However, is fast food good for health?
Fast food has its popularity in the 1940’s. Within a few years, fast-food operations popped up everywhere. With the compelling rise in fast-food restaurants since the 1940’s, oddly it started the rise in obesity and cancer during that same time period.
Fast food is highly processed with a wide array of additives. To ensure fast food’s low cost, the fast food products are made with highly-processed ingredients to give it shelf-life, to hold consistency, and to enhance flavor. Fast food is altered from its original healthy form.
It is not the calories in fast food which damage health and waistline. It is the chemical additives such as aspartame and MSG (monosodium glutamate). Studies show that the chemical additives lead to weight and disease issues.
So, there is absolutely nothing nutritional about fast food. Fast food simply feeds hunger and craving.

The following text is for questions 43 to 45.

2012 film is Roland Emmerich's film which uses the Mayan calendar and other end-of-days prophecies for their doomsday scenario. It imagines the world coming to an end in 2012.
2012 film brings off a series of wonders. The movie hits its peak early on. It starts when Cusack drives a limo through the streets of Los Angeles as freeways and skyscrapers crumble all around him from the shock of a 10.5 earthquake. The preposterous flying sequence is equally thrilling. The climax occurs aboard the giant ark, when an equipment malfunction almost threatens the entire mission.
Unfortunately, the crucial sequence is not filmed or edited with the requisite clarity. In 2012 film, Emmerich leaves us befuddled as to exactly what is happening to whom. However, Emmerich' 2012 deserves credit for offbeat casting. Cusack supplies his trademark hangdog charm. McCarthy has perhaps his best role ever as Peet's cocky. Danny Glover lends dignity to the role of the tormented president. Chiwetel Ejiofor, as the chief scientist, brings a moving sense of anguish to a stock role. Platt has fun playing the villain of the piece, and Woody Harrelson also chews the scenery as a bug-eyed radio prophet trying to warn his listeners about Armageddon.
All in one, 2012's cinematography, production design and visual effects are awards-worthy. Music also propels the movie. It presents American Idol runner-up, Adam Lambert, who provides a rousing anthem over the end credits.

43.  The producer of 2010 film ….
  1. Danny Glover
  2. Chiwetel Ejiofor
  3. Woody Harrelson
  4. Adam Lambert
  5. Ronald Emmerich

  1. 2012 film display
  2. A series of 2012 film
  3. 2012's cinematography
  4. Roland Emmerich's film
  5. American Idol runner-up

45.  How many characters get involved in 2012’film?
There are ….
  1. 5 people
  2. 6 people
  3. 7 people
  4. 8 people
  5. 9 people
