Reading Comprehension



Time: 1 hour
Part 1

For items 1 - 7 read the text about a geyser. Do the tasks using the information given in the text. Choose of the items A- F the title to each paragraph. Mind that there are 2 extra titles.

1.

Old Faithful is a wonderful geyser. It erupts about every hour, winter or summer, day or night. Once every hour, Old Faithful sends a fountainlike column of hot water high into the air.



2.

Old Faithful is in Yellowstone National Park, USA. There are about 200 geysers in this park. The Giant Geyser throws water about 175 feet into the air, but it does not erupt regularly. No one knows when it will erupt. Some geysers erupt several times during an hour. Some may not erupt for months. But Old Faithful is different. It will always erupt once every hour.

3.

It's time for Old Faithful to erupt again. There is a crowd near the geyser. Suddenly we hear a strange noise. Then we see only a small column of water. Gradually it rises higher and higher. Higher and still higher the water rises. It usually rises over 100 feet. For about four minutes this natural fountain sends a giant column of water into the air. Then it gradually dies down. The people hurry away to see the other geysers.



4.

In another hour another crowd will come to see Old Faith­ful. Again, a small

2

column of water will rise into the air. It will rise higher and higher, then gradually die down. Old Faithful is a good name for this faithful geyser.


Which paragraph can it be referred to?

A. Why is it called Old Faithful?

B. National parks in the USA.
C. What makes geysers erupt?

D. What is Old Faithful?

E. Seeing Old Faithful erupt.

Part 2


For items 8 - 21 read the text about the history of London. Do the tasks using the information given in the text.
The Making of London

The River Thames flows from the heart of England to the east coast, and London grew up at the lowest convenient crossing place. Here the north and south banks provided firm ground for the Romans to build a bridge, soon after their invasion of Britain in AD 43. They gave their settlement a Celtic name, Llyn-din (river place), later called Londinium.

The Thames Valley was certainly inhabited from the earliest times. A Stone Age has been uncovered in Acton; the site of an Iron Age temple lies under one of the runways at Heathrow Airport; and many pre-Roman objects have been found in the Thames. But London began with the Romans. In was not only the capital of Roman Britain, but also the sixth-largest city in the Roman Empire.

The Romans laid out military roads and the Thames itself provided a waterway for merchants trading with the Continent or the inland districts.

By AD 60 there was a sizable town there. But in that year the Iceni, an ancient British people, led by their Queen Boadicea, revolted against the Romans. They attacked London and burnt it down. The ashes of their destruction are still found when deep foundations are dug for new buildings. But such were the natural advantages of the place, that when the Romans returned the settlement was re-established.

Londinium flourished, and within a generation had become the administra­tive centre for the province. Houses were built inside massive walls, portions of which can be seen beside the Tower. Other pointers to the size and beauty of the city have been discovered: an altar to Diana, an ancient goddess of forest and childbirth, on the site of the Goldsmith's Hall; a temple to Mithras, an ancient god of light, in Queen Victoria Street. Also in Cannon Street is London Stone, possibly the lower part of a column which served as the central milestone for the whole Roman

4

Britain. The stone is set in the wall of the Bank of China.



When the Romans left Britain in AD 410, life slowed down in walled city for the next two centuries. Then, in 604, St Augustine, a prominent Christian missionary in Britain, ordained the first Saxon Bishop of London, and before the end of the century a mint had been re-established.

King Alfred rebuilt the fortifications in 886 against Viking attacks, and from that point London grew in political and military importance and in trade and wealth.

By the end of the 11th century a significant new development had taken place. King Canute (1016—1035), England's only Danish king, had built a palace to the west of the city. Edward the Confessor (1042—1066) chose to live there too, and as he was a very religious man, beside the palace he built a church, his

minster in the west, which gave the name Westminster to the small area that grew up around the royal buildings.

After the Norman Conquest in 1066, William I made a separate peace with the citizens of London, promising that they could keep their own laws and customs. But at the same time he began to build the Tower of London just outside the city — to show them the King's authority.


Read the four possible ways to complete the sentences and choose the only one correct.

Questions 22 - 30 are based on the text about Walt Disney. 9 sentences and phrases have been removed from the text. Choose from the sentences A - I the one which fits each gap.


How it all began.

History shows that childhood played an important part in the life of many great people. The life of Walter Elias Disney, known as Walt Disney, 22) ___________. Disney's father Elias was not very successful in

7

whatever he did: he was a carpenter, an owner of a small hotel, a village postman. 23)___________ he decided to start a new life in a new place and in 1889 Elias with his young wife Flora and their small son Herbert moved from Florida to Chicago. In Chicago two more sons were born — Raymond and Roy, then Walter — on the fifth of December, 1901, and two years later — their daughter Ruth. 24)_______________, and thinking about the future of their children, Elias and Flora moved to the country where they bought a small farm.



Living on the farm was the happiest time in Walter's life 25)______________. For all his life he remembered the lawn in front of their house, beautiful weeping willows and fruit orchards with huge apples. He could spend hours watching the life and habits of animals. Disney even brought up a piglet. His name was Skinny and he fol­lowed Walt wherever he went. They say Disney remembered the animals on his father's farm better than the people he met.

At that time it appeared that Walt was fond of drawing. His parents often bought him albums for drawing and colour pencils. But one of Disney's first pictures was made in coal on a white wall of their recently painted house when his parents were away.

26)_______________Elias Disney had to sell the farm, and after four years of wonderful time in the country, the Disneys moved to Kansas City. Walt and Roy helped their father in his new business. They had to get up at half past three in the morning to deliver morning newspapers and not to be late for school. Soon nineteen-year-old Roy got tired of it and decided to live and work on his uncle's farm. After his departure Walt had to deliver the newspapers himself.

27)__________He went to the cine­ma and theatre, spent a lot of time in the library. His favourite writers were Mark Twain, Swift, Stevenson, Dickens. Disney also admired the great talent of Charlie Chaplin.

8

When Walt was fourteen, he made up his mind to become an artist and his father let him attend the courses at the Kansas City Art Institute. But after the USA joined the World War I in April 1917, Disney volunteered as a Red Cross ambu­lance driver in France. He was seventeen when he returned home and got a job in an art studio in Kansas City. Walt's brother Roy worked in a bank in Kansas at that time and Walt could always get help or a word of advice from him. Later Disney made animated commercials at the Kansas City Ad Company and as he was very successful he decided to found his own cartoon production company.



With the help of a few young animators Disney made six-minute films illustrating famous fairy-tales Cinderella, Little Red Riding-Hood and some others.

The twenty-year-old president of the new company thought these films 28)_________________. But it appeared that the car­toons were not profitable, and soon Walt went bank­rupt.

29) ___________. Roy advised him to try his luck in Hollywood, and in 1923, with forty dollars in his pockets, Walt headed for Los Angeles. That year Walt and Roy founded their own cartoon company in Hollywood and made a series of cartoons called Alice in Cartoonland. These cartoons combined a "live" Alice with cartoon char­acters.

30)______________, Walt had to do everything — he was a play­wright, a director, an animator. Alice in Cartoonland was very successful and Walt decided to move on.

A) But still it would be wrong to say that the boy's life was dull

B) As they didn't have enough money to pay the assis­tants

C) Chicago was a very dangerous place at that time

D) proves the rule

E) Unfortunately good things don't last long

9

F) And still Disney was not going to give up



G) would be a success and he would make a fortune

H) and it greatly influenced his senses and interests



I) In the end
