Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the 
correct answer to each of the questions from 1 to 10. 
Very few people in the modern world obtain their food supply by hunting and gathering in the 
natural environment surrounding their homes. This method of harvesting from nature’s provision is the 
oldest known subsistence strategy and has been practised for at least the last two million years. It was, 
indeed, the only way to obtain food until rudimentary farming and the domestication of wild animals 
were introduced about 10,000 years ago. 
Because hunter-gatherers have fared poorly in comparison with their agricultural cousins, their 
numbers have dwindled, and they have been forced to live in marginal environments, such as deserts 
and arctic wastelands. In higher latitudes, the shorter growing seasons have restricted the availability 
of plant life. Such conditions have caused a greater dependence on hunting, and on fishing along the 
coasts and waterways. The abundance of vegetation in the lower latitudes of the tropics, on the other 
hand, has provided a greater opportunity for gathering a variety of plants. In short, the environmental 
differences have restricted the diet and have limited possibilities for the development of subsistence 
Contemporary hunter-gatherers may help us understand our prehistoric ancestors. We know from 
the observation of modern hunter-gatherers in both Africa and Alaska that a society based on hunting 
and gathering must be very mobile. While the entire community camps in a central location, a smaller 
party harvests the food within a reasonable distance from the camp. When the food in the area has 
become exhausted, the community moves on to exploit another site. We also notice seasonal 
migration patterns evolving for most hunter-gatherers, along with a strict division of labor between 
the sexes. These patterns of behavior may be similar to those practised by mankind during the 
Paleolithic Period.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the 
correct answer to each of the questions from 56 to 65. 
Probably the most famous film commenting on the twentieth-century technology is Modern Times, 
made in 1936. Charlie Chaplin was motivated to make the film by a reporter who, while interviewing 
him, happened to describe the working conditions in industrial Detroit. Chaplin was told that healthy 
young farm boys were lured to the city to work on automotive assembly lines. Within four or five 
years, these young men’s health was destroyed by the stress of work in the factories. 
The film opens with a shot of a mass of sheep making their way down a crowded ramp. 
Abruptly, the film shifts to a scene of factory workers jostling one another on their way to a 
factory. However, the rather bitter note of criticism in the implied comparison is not sustained. It is 
replaced by a gentle note of satire. Chaplin prefers to entertain rather than lecture. 
Scenes of factory interiors account for only about one-third of Modern Times, but they contain 
some of the most pointed social commentary as well as the most comic situations. No one who has 
seen the film can ever forget Chaplin vainly trying to keep pace with the fast-moving conveyor belt, 
almost losing his mind in the process. Another popular scene involves an automatic feeding machine 
brought to the assembly line so that workers need not interrupt their labor to eat. The feeding machine 
malfunctions, hurling food at Chaplin, who is strapped in his position on the assembly line and cannot 
escape. This serves to illustrate people’s utter helplessness in the face of machines that are meant to 
serve their basic needs.
