VIII. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, D on your answer sheet to indicate the
correct answer to each of the questions .
Arthur Dove Ar thur Dove was an abstract nature painter whose work was radically different and underappreciated in the American art scene.  In fact, Dove was the first American artist to paint in an entirely abstract manner.  He painted a set of
six abstract works around 1910, prior to the European artist Wassily Kandinsky‟s famous abstract compositions.  Kandinsky‟s abstract work, however, complemented the cultural context in Europe, and was
therefore appreciated. Dove‟s work had no similar cultural context in America.  Overall, Dove's abstract paintings did nothing to change Amercican art. His work was not once but twice
orphaned: by the general indifference of the Amercican public, and by his own reclusive nature. Nevertheless, Dove's abstract paintings remain interesting compositions on nature.
Dove once wrote, “I would like to make something that is real in itself, or to be real without looking like something else, that does not remind anyone of any other thing, and that does not have to be explained, like the
letter A for instance.”

B. Because his paintings did nothing to change society.
C. Because they did not have a cultural context in America.
D. Because America was not interested in European painters.

IX. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, D on your answer sheet to indicate the
correct answer to each of the questions .
Television An American TV network has had an international hit with the drama "24”. a thriller known for its suspense and often graphic violence. Over the past year, controversy has surrounded the series because of its portrayal of Muslim terrorists and its frequent scenes of torture. But the content of “24” is not the only thing that would have been unthinkable on prime−time television 20 years ago. Its form also represents a major change in
modem TV: during each episode‟s 44 minutes − a real−time hour, minus 16 minutes for commercials – the show connects the lives of 21 different characters, each with their own personalities and specific relationships
with other characters. Nine different story lines (or “threads") arc depicted, each involving events and information revealed in previous episodes. [ I ]  For years many people have assumed that popular culture is in a state of decline rapidly degenerating
into “junk culture" with no worthwhile purpose. But an interesting new book challenges that assumption.
“Everything Bad is Good for You: How Today‟s Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter," by Steven
Johnson, makes a persuasive argument that today‟s complex TV dramas and other pop culture Products gives healthy mental exercise. He calls the use or complex, interwoven plot lines involving multiple characters
“multi−threading”, and it is a new and growing phenomenon in TV To keep up with shows like “24", he points
out, you must “pay attention, make inferences, track shifting social relationships", and these cognitive
challenges are changịng our mental development for the better.   The most obvious change in the last five years of narrative entertainment is the rise of reality TV, Surely,
you might be thinking, watching “Survivor" or “The Bachelor” cannot possibly raise anyone's IQ “Survivor” is
now in its tenth season, and “The Bachelor” is in its seventh. But as Johnson tells us lately “even the junk has
improved”. The new reality shows are like games: they arc series of competitive tests, each more challenging
than the last, and with rules that must be learned as you play. On “Survivor" for instance, the participants and the audience know the general objective of the game but each episode brings new challenges that require quick thinking. Success in these games calls for the intellectual labor of finding the weak spots in the rules and in your opponents. This labor is done not just by the stars of the shows but the viewers at home as well. This is what makes these shows such fun to watch − the human mind enjoys being challenged. As Johnson writes,
“There‟s real pleasure ... in solving puzzles, detectingpatterns or understanding a complex narrative system."
Question 55: What is the topic of the passage?
A. The decline of TV today B. Benefits of TV today
C. TV and culture D. Why “24” became a
hit Question 56: Which is the best place for the following sentence?
“It is not only hour−long dramas that make us smarter."
A. [l] B.  C.  D. 
Question 57: The word “each” in paragraph I refers to ____. .
A. story lines B. characters C. episodes D. personalities Question 58: The author begins the passage by discussing “24” in order to
A. prove that TV has become much more violent
B. show how TV has become more complex
C. explain why many TV shows nowadays are controversial

A. agrees with Steven Johnson‟s views
B. strongly disagrees with Steven Johnson's views
