Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

      The Montessori method of educating children is named after its founder, Maria Montessori, an Italian scientist, medical doctor, and educator. This method is guided by perhaps a half-dozen major principles of education.

       The first affirms the biological programming of child development, the child's capacity for self – realization, for "auto-education". The second calls for "scientific pedagogy". A science of childhood based on observation. The third demands a natural environment in which self-development can be expressed and observed.

       Montessori believed that the school could be made into such an environment, thus becoming a laboratory for scientific pedagogy. This environment should be determined scientifically. In order to expand, children, left at liberty to exercise their activities, ought to find in their surroundings something organized in direct relation to the children's internal organization. All of these principles imply the next, which Montessori calls the ‘biological concept of liberty in pedagogy”: the child must be free to act spontaneously and to interact with the prepared environment. The entire program is concerned with the individual child; the spontaneity, the needs, the observation, the freedom are always those of the individual. Finally, the modus operandi of the method is sensory training.

A. Results of the Montessori Method

B. Stages of Child Development

D. Modern Principles of education

Question 39: The phrase “such an environment” refers to which of the following kinds of environment?

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

       Where humans have planted crops for food, unless they are organic, poisonous chemicals have been sprayed on them; insecticides are used to kill insect pests and herbicides are used to kill weeds. Fungicides fight off fungal diseases. Artificial fertilizers are added to the soil to increase the yield of the crops. If these chemicals are used in excess, some of them dissolve in rainwater and drain into rivers, streams and ponds, polluting the water and killing the wildlife.

T     he "weeds" competing with the farmers' crops include wild flowers and many of these have become endangered through the use of herbicides. Insects rely on plants for food and breeding sites so the number of these are affected by a reduction in the number of plants. Many birds depend on insects for food so the be affected by the use of both insecticides and herbicides. One of the reasons why the Barn Owl is endangered is due to a shortage of insects and it may also be poisoned by eating insects affected by chemical sprays.

        The case of DDT as well as other chemicals known as organochlorine is well known. These were first used extensively in the 1950s, sprayed onto crops to kill insect pests. Unfortunately, after a few years it was noticed that birds of prey were rapidly declining in numbers and thousands of seed-eating birds were dying. By the 1960s the once common sparrow hawk was a rare bird in Britain. The sparrow hawk's prey were the seed-eating birds which were carrying the poisonous insecticides in their bodies. Consequently, many sparrow hawks and other birds of prey were being indirectly poisoned by the chemical sprays. The organochlorine also caused many birds to lay thin shelled eggs, which cracked easily.

        Research showed that the chemicals were entering the food chains and being stored in the fat of the animals' bodies. For example, a thrush may eat snails which have eaten a sprayed cabbage plant. The thrush may not have eaten enough poison to be actually killed but a sparrow hawk eating several thrushes accumulates so much of the poison that it is killed. The chemicals become more concentrated as they travel up the food chain. Even most humans still have small amounts of organochlorine in their fatty tissues although these chemicals had been withdrawn from use by 1976. They are still used, however, in some Third World countries. By the 1980s the sparrow hawk population had recovered dramatically and it is once again a common bird. This example shows just how dangerous the use of chemicals in the environment can be.

        As mentioned earlier, some plants are endangered through collectors such as the Venus fly-trap and some tropical orchids, but most threatened plants have become so through the destruction of their habitat. Once very common plants have almost disappeared because of the way humans have changed the land. For example, the Egyptian Papyrus, a type of reed, had been used for thousands of years for all sorts of things such as paper, medicine, boats, baskets, food etc. Then, when changes in the irrigation methods on the river Nile were introduced, this valuable plant almost completely disappeared. It was thought to be extinct until 1968 when a few plants were found in an undisturbed waterway. Orchids have been also collected from rainforests to become household favourites, causing many species to become endangered.

Question 43: Which of the following could best reflect the purpose of the author in the passage?

A. The author wants to indicate how chemicals and pollution contribute to animal extinction.

B. The author tries to provide evidence of species that have already been eliminated.

C. The author wishes to raise people's awareness of how species are disappeared.

A. quality              B. fertility              C. nutrition                               D. production

Question 45: What will happen to the insect-eating birds if the weeds are in danger?

A. They will experience a downward trend in the number on account of food shortage.

B. They will not have materials to make nets in breeding seasons.

C. They must find rely on other kinds of insects when the vegetation is limited.

D. They may compete with many species to have crops for food.

Question 46: According to the passage, sparrow hawks are described as a species that

A. was killed by the toxics of insecticides used for crops containing inside the insect's body.

B. was poisoned by eating the chemical sprays on the weeds.

C. laid broken egg due to the consequences of lack of nutrient insect pests.

D. depended on their enemy to survive when the number of seeds declined.

Question 47: The word "their" in paragraph 3 refers to_______.

A. seed-eating birds                                           B. sparrow hawks                

C. sparrow hawks                                              D. insect-eating birds

A. happens or makes something happen faster or earlier than expected.

B. gradually gets more and more of something over a period of time.

C. removes or gets rid of something

D. makes something seem larger, better, worse or more important than it really is.

B. Keeping some kinds of plants for recreation at home is a good way to save endangered species.

C. Deforestation is the primary reason of flora disappearance

D. Many valuable plants have provided people with invaluable products.

Question 50: It can be inferred from the passage that _______.

A. There are many alternative ways for humans to save species from extinction.

B. The chemicals used for agriculture have a direct influence on both the species and their enemy.

C. Many endangered species are only preserved by human's effort in changing the environment.
