Questions 33 - 35 refer to the following radio program.
Welcome back to The Book Stall. This week I read Joseph Stiglitz’ latest book and I enjoyed it! Making Globalization Work was a refreshing, readable foray into the sometimes confusing world of macro-economics. Stiglitz, a presidential advisor and former chief economist for the World Bank, was the 2001 Nobel Laureate in Economics. He had previously published Globalization and Its Discontents, a compendium of the problems globalization has created. His intimate knowledge of World Bank, IMF and WTO operations reinforced his view that developing countries were not helped by – in fact, were frequently hurt by – the self-interested policies of much more powerful developed nations. In this sequel, Stiglitz lays out his vision of what’s needed. His nearly four decades of research and important role in shaping economic policy have convinced him that a modicum of government intervention and regulation, particularly in trade agreements, can level the playing field among nations and bring the benefits of market economy to all. After the break, I’ll be back to read a few of Stiglitz’ thoughts on how this could be carried out. ….
In what field did Stiglitz establish his career?
(C) Political Science
How can Stiglitz’s latest book be described?
(A) A general tome on macro-economics
(B) A critique of globalization’s problems
(C) A memoir of his years as presidential advisor
(D) Views on how to improve globalization
What is Stiglitz’ vision for globalization policy?
(A) Appropriate regulation will allow the market to benefit all.
(B) Different rules for developing and developed nations
(C) The World Bank, IMF and WTO should set the rules.
(D) Without regulation, the market itself will create prosperity.
Questions 36 - 38 refer to the following commentary.
Well, Shannon, this Sports Fair has certainly been well received here. All three floors of the expo center are full, some 250 exhibitors all together, ranging from top-ranked sports teams through equipment and apparel manufacturers to sports medicine and dietary supplement providers. With game tickets and products as door prizes, plus the chance to meet some star players, the public has, not surprisingly, come out in force to share in the excitement and see where the industry is going. Although this event was intended primarily as an industry meet-up, some 3000 people have come through the doors each day. And what I’ve seen here includes a lot of parents with their young athletes. One father I talked to said he was looking for information to help him judge if his children were getting good training advice from their coaches. His son, though, seemed more interested in state-of-the-art basketball shoes. And there are plenty of those on display. But I also observed a lot of earnest business discussions taking place, with equipment makers pressing their case with wholesale reps and sports retailers. I see Jim Manix, just coming this way. He’s Sales Manager of Envida Footwear and the director of the fair, so I’ll try to get a word with him.
What type of commentary is this?
(A) A report for a sports newscast.
(B) A report by a television anchorman.
(C) Commentary on a game in progress.
(D) Coverage of the role of parents in sport.
Why has the event been well attended by the public?
(A) Famous brands are being advertised.
(B) Teams are recruiting young athletes.
(C) They have a chance to win prizes and meet stars.
(D) They get a game ticket at the door.
What intended outcome of the event was realized?
(A) Athletes demonstrated new products.
(B) Businessmen were able to talk to parents.
(C) Parents got to speak with sports doctors.
(D) Industry professionals made contact.
Questions 39-41 refer to the following talk.
One of the more creative approaches to helping children deal with catastrophic events in their lives sprang from the fertile mind of artist Eleanor Bennington. Her own works have always been shopping sprees into those hidden, and most painful, reaches of her own experience. When Bennington heard of the children whose peaceful, mountain villages had been swept away in the recent wildfires, she knew that art would offer them a way of working through their nightmares. What we have here is an installation of monumental value, a record of the fires seen through the eyes of children, who, with Bennington’s seminal instructions for their teachers, put their worst fears to paper, paint, papier mache, and collage. They created a stunning witness to the horrors they saw and, subsequently, tried to forget. Those fears come alive in their creations, allowing them, the witnesses, and us, the receptors, to deal with the scenes burned indelibly on their psyches. This first work, by Dimitra Halkias, shows her home in ashes. Further along …. [fade]

Questions 42 - 44 refer to the following report.
All right, let’s get started. We’ve been tasked with a job of monumental proportions. Let me begin by reminding you that we’ve got over 2,000 drug companies and 150,000 food processing companies, not to mention thousands of small exporters. And in recent months, a few of the, shall we say, “less responsible” ones have failed to live up to good practices. Recalls of their dangerous products have undermined our reputation in the international market. Somehow, this team has to bring this giant under control and to do that immediately. We’ll start with a thorough review of product standards to identify which ones need to be tightened. Then, after developing recommendations for inspection and enforcement, members of this taskforce will directly supervise execution of the plan. I can assure you, we will have a free hand and full backing of the governing council. Improvement of our image and continued economic growth are foremost in their minds. You’ll find my action outline in the folders you’ve been given …

(C) Full support for implementing their plan.
(D) Lip service without real backing.
Questions 45 - 47 refer to the following weather report.
Jenny Holmann here with World Weather Today. Hurricane Xavier continues to build in strength as it approaches the Texas gulf coast. We’re expecting this to become a Category 5 storm as it makes landfall tomorrow near Galveston and authorities there are beginning evacuation, and businesses in the area will remain closed for several days. US cities on the Atlantic seaboard, however, are enjoying sunny weather with temperatures in the high 20’s. Temperatures dropping from west to east in Europe, the southern Mediterranean rim is also enjoying a respite after the extreme heat they’ve had this summer. Barcelona is a sunny 28, Rome 27, and Athens 25. And these conditions are expected to hold throughout the week. If you’re flying into London or Brussels though, be prepared for some delays. The north continues to suffer what now seems like unending rain, with temperatures in the teens: London 17 Celsius, Brussels 15, Paris 15, and Frankfurt 13. And where the rain has let up, morning ground fog has diverted some flights, so check our frequent weather updates on your laptop or cell phone at WNN-dot-com. I’ll be back with an update on Hurricane Xavier in the next hour.
What group of listeners does this report target?
(A) Business travelers in Europe
(B) People living in the eastern US
(C) Residents of the Texas gulf coast
(D) Weekend holidaymakers
What can be said about the current European weather?
(A) The north is currently warmer than southern regions.
(B) The south is currently wetter than the north.

(B) The possibility of fog in some areas
(C) The prospects of a catastrophic storm
(D) The unusual heat waves in northern Europe
Questions 48-50 refer to the following talk.
Okay, this is what I’ve put together so far. This is the cover slide, and the second has our team listed. I thought I would start with a pie chart to illustrate our market share. Then, I want to use this line graph to show our company’s growth over the past five years. And then, this multiple line graph, showing our growth against the other leading competitors. They’re scattered all over the charts, and we clearly are in the lead. I think a bar chart at this point might be good, something that shows the dollar amount of market share for each of us, five years ago and today. We can put today’s bar in the bright color with a darker shade of the same color for the amount five years ago. What I’m still up in the air about is which color to give our company throughout. Red would stand out – and that’s what we want if we’re to attract additional investors – but I also lean toward bright green or even black. Both colors are perceived as positives in business jargon. I’m really not sure about this. What do you think?
What graphic does the speaker NOT suggest using?
(A) Bar chart
(B) Line graph
(C) Pie chart
What is the goal of the presentation being discussed?

(B) The colors to represent his company
(C) In the black
(D) The order in which to present the slides
Questions 51-53 refer to the following radio talk.
Fellow discerning diners, I’m tempted to call this week’s report, “The Raw Story”. For your epicurean pleasure this weekend, I’ve checked out two new restaurants – five star, in my book, both of them – one of which specializes in uncooked meat and the other in fresh veggies. Aptly named, The Total Tartar, in Kensington, offers an array of ‘beef steak tartar’ the likes of which I have never seen before. You can choose from ground round to delicate, paper-thin slices of sirloin with garnishes and condiments from mild to very spicy. I had the Attila Special, tiny cubes of raw steak with scorching hot chili peppers and a vinaigrette dipping sauce. Superb! If meat, raw or cooked, isn’t your thing, I’d recommend The Herb Garden, out near the river in Tooting Bek. They literally have their own garden, organic of course, and every ingredient is picked fresh the same day. I particularly liked the little aubergine boat, heaped full of seasonal salad, in a light, yoghurt-based sauce. Well worth the rather long trek out to the Bek. I’ll be back after this rather intrusive break, with my recommendations on wines.
When is this program likely to be broadcast?
(A) Late Saturday evening
(B) Midday on a Friday
(C) On a Sunday evening.
(D) On a Monday morning
What does the speaker find most notable about the meat restaurant?
(A) It offers an unusually wide selection of its specialty.
(B) It serves spicy condiments with its meals.
(C) It uses both ordinary and unusual cuts of meat.
(D) Its dishes are named after famous Tartars.
What theme connects the two restaurants discussed?
(A) Both are located in the city center.
(B) Both grow the food they serve.
(C) Both serve a variety of meats.
(D) Both serve uncooked food.

Questions 57 - 59 refer to the following call-in talk show.
Yes, Larry, thanks for taking my call. Eh, you know, I was in the work force back in the 80’s when they told us that reducing taxes on upper income brackets would ‘trickle down’ to the rest of us. But, of course, it didn’t, and we only saw improvement in wages and job creation when that policy was reversed by the next administration. Time and again, we’ve seen that high-end tax cuts only help, well, the high end. But, the past few years, a new generation of voters have been assured, once again, I might add, that tax cuts for the rich would somehow benefit them. And, unfortunately, a lot of them bought into that idea, a notion which, in my mind, has been repeatedly disproved. So, I guess my question for Mrs. Price would be in two parts. When are we going to require basic economics theory to be taught in high school – not just in universities – and what proposals does she offer to make sure that funding is available to make that part of the nationwide school curriculum?
On what does the caller base his views of tax policy?
(A) His economics training.
(B) His own past experience.
(C) The reversal of tax policy.
(D) The success of “trickle-down.”
What is the caller’s main contention?
(A) All citizens should receive a tax cut.
(B) All voters need to understand economics.
(C) Economics is best taught in university.
(D) Economics education is well funded.
To whom is the caller directing his question?
(A) A guest on the program.
(B) A political consultant.
(C) An economics professor.
(D) The host of the program.
Questions 60 - 62 refer to the following talk.
Zorka in Bulgaria writes, “Which test should I take to go to university in the UK?” Well, I need to come back to that question, and start with the reason for tests. Teachers have always tested to see if their students have absorbed the lesson. And some universities have used tests as one criteria for admissions. Increasingly, though, mobility from city to city, country to country and continent to continent, have caused employers and educators to demand tests, especially of foreign language, as part of their acceptance scheme. They don’t know the applicant’s capabilities personally and can’t wait for a period of time to see if they’ll work out. So they rely on standard tests. When large universities or governments mandate a particular test, this gives a boost to the preparation and testing industry. That having been said, Zorka, you should start with the universities you’re hoping to attend and see what tests each requires. Check them out online, or ask your teachers and advisors for their recommendations. And that’s it for today. I’ll be back again next week with Edu-Hour …
Who is the speaker?
(A) A teacher in Zorka’s high school.
(B) An educational advisor on the radio.
(C) An expert on Bulgarian education.
(D) The educational counselor in a school.
What has spurred the growth in the testing field?
(A) Employers who demand tests from applicants.
(B) New laws passed by governments.
(C) The need to judge the suitability of unknown applicants.
(D) The rapid growth of large universities.
62. What does the speaker advise the writer to do?
(A) Ask a teacher which tests they like best.
(B) Check what her chosen universities require.
(C) See which tests are prepared for in her area.
(D) Take all the tests that she thinks may be required.
