The importance of early detection of deafness in childhood is generally recognized. Detection is normally a two-stage process of which the first is a screening test of hearing. Screening tests sift out children with impaired hearing from those with normal hearing and can be successfully administered at any time after the age of seven months. Children who fail a screening test are given a diagnostic test, as the second stage in the process, to determine the nature and extent of their hearing loss. Both screening and diagnostic tests must be appropriate to the developmental level of the children to whom they are administered. Special techniques for testing babies and young children have been evolved at Manchester University. When deafness has been diagnosed, parents are advised to seek guidance about the management and early training of their children at the audiology clinics established by an increasing number of local authorities and hospitals.
57- We understand from the passage that screening tests ......... .
A) can be effectively administered well before a child is one year old
B) indicate whether a child is completely deaf or has normal hearing
C) require a certain degree of cooperation from the child
D) can be more accurate than the diagnostic ones
E)can be very upsetting for the child
58- It is made clear in the passage that both the screening tests and the diagnostic tests for hearing ........ .
A) are in need of a thorough up-dating
B) are still not really reliable
C) can be used to determine the degree of the hearing loss
D) have detected hearing defects in very young babies
E) have to be suited to the level of development of the individual child
59- We understand from the passage that once it has been established that a child is deaf,....
A) the parents should apply to various local authorities for advice and support
B) the child will be sent to a special school for training
C) the child will be admitted to hospital for further tests
D) the parents are encouraged to go to audiology clinics for help and advice on how to assist their child
E) the parents should check what the neighbourhood has to offer in the way of special schooling for the deaf

For years, it has been assumed that obesity is the result of too much food and too little exercise. While this maxim is largely correct, the aetiology of obesity can be much more complex. There is a well-documented familial tendency, but whether this is of environmental or genetic origin is unclear. Studies of twins separated at birth and living apart provide strong evidence for a substantial genetic influence. Children of overweight parents, when adopted by lean families, have a greater tendency to become obese than do adoptees from nonobese natural parents. Energy efficiency may contribute to obesity; with reserves of fat deposits readily available to metabolise in the obese, a given amount of activity requires a smaller expenditure of energy. This theory has been invoked by those who complain that they gain weight whether they eat or not, and indeed there is evidence of differences in energy efficiency among individuals. Similarly, obesity has been attributed to abnormally low basal metabolic rates (BMRs) since obese individuals do show lower BMRs. However, this fact is due to an artifact of BMR measurement; a larger proportion of the total fat mass of an obese person is inert, low-metabolising fat, a fact that makes BMR calculations lower.
60. The main idea of this passage is .. .
A) to discredit the idea that there is a greater degree of energy efficiency
in the obese
B) that the environmental and the genetic causes of obesity are more or less the same
C) to establish that the factors behind obesity are highly complex and even contradictory
D) that obesity is a serious health hazard and that a great deal more research into the treatment of it is required
E) to impress on overweight parents the need to watch their childrens diet and life-style
61. According to the passage, the theory that obesity has a strong genetic basis . .
A) seems more likely than the one concerning the BMRs
B) is slowly falling into disfavour and being replaced by one that puts the emphasis on energy efficiency
C) has not so far been well researched, but as it is the most likely theory, it deserves to be
D) is supported by some studies of twins that have been brought up separately
E) is soon likely to be fully substantiated
62. The passage suggests that the theory that obesity is due to a low BMR .
A) has never had any serious recognition
B) needs to be reconsidered as the manner of calculating this rate in the obese is inaccurate
C) has been invented by the obese who claim that the amount they eat makes no difference to their weight
D) will probably turn out to be the correct theory
E) has been thoroughly researched in several cases of twins

The government of Britain is again looking at fluoridation of the public water supply as a possible means of achieving nationwide improvements in dental hygiene. To the casual observer, given the highly erroneous impression that the presence of fluoride in toothpaste is beneficial in the prevention of dental caries, such a measure may understandably appear desirable and worthy of public support. However, many water authorities across the country have long understood the risks associated with fluoridation; but the government and the various official organizations that support such a measure continually deny these risks. It should be realized that there are two forms of fluoride. One of these is calcium fluoride, which is a natural substance occurring in water at very low levels of 0.01-1 parts per million and a substance which the various organizations involved in promoting fluoridation constantly draw attention to when attempting to justify their case. The other form of fluoride is sodium fluoride, which occurs alongside various related substances such as fluosilicic acid and is an extremely dangerous industrial by-product produced by such industries as aluminium, ceramics, phosphate fertilizes and nuclear power. This form of fluoride is an accumulative poison even more toxic than lead and only slightly less toxic than arsenic.
63. The writer of the passage informs us that, contrary to the facts, a great many people believe that . .
A) the public water supply is slowly being polluted by fluoride from industrial
B) both types of fluoride are extremely dangerous
C) fluoride helps to keep teeth strong and healthy
D) the water supply could be fluoridated at little expense
E) no risks would be entailed if the water supplies were fluoridated
64. We learn from the passage that calcium fluoride .. .
A) in the public water supply could in time endanger the health of the people
B) is used in toothpaste because it cures dental cavities
C) is an important ingredient in many fertilizers
D) and sodium fluoride can be used interchangeably
E) is naturally present in water but in minute amounts
65. The writer of the passage puts great emphasis on the fact that one type of fluoride .
A) is an industrial by-product and highly toxic
B) certainly helps to prevent tooth decay
C) leads to lead poisoning
D) is being factory produced so that the water supplies can be fluoridated
E) only occurs naturally in such small amounts that ways of supplementing it must be found

The site of a hospital needs careful consideration. More and more people now agree that a hospital should, wherever possible, be part of the community it serves. This makes for the convenience of patients, particularly outpatients, and eases staff recruitment. Whilst it may be necessary to serve small communities by peripheral separate out-patient departments, in general, in-patient and out-patient buildings should be on the same site. It is not, however, always practicable to build extensively in a town or city, and it is difficult to make provision for expansion. The actual design of a hospital is also of great importance. Medicine is ever changing, and it is difficult to forecast changes that lie ahead. Doctors invariably call for flexibility in planning, which is really only practicable if hospital construction is on ground-floor level and if the wards and the special investigator departments are so designed that they can be readily extended.
66. Clearly, the writer of the passage believes that, ideally, a hospital should .
A) be designed carefully so that no changes will be needed in the future

C) there will be more patients than the doctors will be able to cope with
D) the size necessary to treat so many patients makes administration extremely complex
E) it is usually impossible to have an out-patient department
68. It is pointed out in the passage that the flexibility that the medical profession looks for in a hospital building .
A) has to be planned in accordance with the changes that are forecast for the
B) is an unnecessary luxury
C) can be provided easily and inexpensively
D) is really only feasible in single-storey constructions
E) largely concerns the size of the wards that are favoured

By far the most common sleep complaint is insomnia. About a third of Americans have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, problems that result in listlessness and loss of alertness during the day. Most of the time the distress is temporary, brought on by anxiety about a problem at work or a sudden family crisis. But sometimes sleep difficulties can extend for months and years. Faced with a chronic situation, insomniacs frequently medicate themselves with alcohol or drugs. Doctors warm that in most cases sleeping pills should not be taken for longer than two or three weeks. Such drugs can lose their effectiveness with time, and it takes higher and higher dosages to work. People run the risk of becoming dependent on the pills.

70. The point is made in the passage that short-term sleeplessness .
A) is very often caused by a worrying situation
B) produces no ill-effects and should be disregarded
C) should never be treated with drugs
D) refers to the type of insomnia that lasts no longer than three weeks
E) responds well to sleeping pills
71. It is emphasized in the passage that sleeping pills . .
A) can intensify certain types of insomnia
B) are used regularly by almost a third of the American people
C) are only rarely habit-forming
D) undermine ones daytime efficiency
E) should not be taken over a long period of time

Malaria remains probably the most serious single threat to health throughout the tropics and subtropics. A newcomer to an area in which malaria is highly endemic may be misled by the apparently robust health of most the local people. The adults, however , are simply the relatively resistant survivors of a disease that regularly kills a large percentage of infants. The previously unexposed immigrant to virtually all of Africa, most of Southeast Asia , and much of Latin America is at grave risk of contracting malaria, some forms of which have a mortality rate of 10% in untreated cases. Military forces and construction crews throughout history have been inactivated by this disease. Experiences in Vietnam and on construction projects in Africa continue to demonstrate that antimalarial drugs do not offer complete protection. Malaria is almost always underestimated as to its very wide geographic distribution, the high risk of infection, and the severity of the disease in non immune subjects.
72. An important point that is stressed in the passage is that . .
A) outsiders going to work in areas where malaria is endemic should avoid contact
with the local people
B) malaria is only dangerous if it goes untreated
C) most forms of malaria are harmless
D) a great many people do not realize just how dangerous malaria is
E) the incidence of malaria even in Africa is rapidly decreasing
73. We understand from the passage that where malaria is endemic .. .
A) the whole population is in poor health
B) it causes the death of very many young children
C) people easily develop an immunity to the disease
D) strenuous physical effort should be avoided
E) medical care is ineffective
74. It is clear from the passage that people who have not been exposed to malaria and acquired an immunity to it . .
A) are only at risk if they are in poor health
B) have nothing to fear so long as they take anti malarial drugs when in areas where it is endemic
C) can very easily contract the disease
D) should take certain precautions until they have acquired an immunity
E) are in the majority even in regions where malaria is endemic

Asthma may be defined as a malady characterized by attacks of breathlessness due to paroxysmal narrowing of the smaller bronchi and bronchioles. Asthma may start at any age, but most commonly in childhood. The typical attack starts suddenly with breathlessness and wheezing, the difficulty being mainly in expiration. A small amount of viscid mucus is usually expectorated towards the end of the attack. Attacks may occur at any time, but especially during the night or in the early morning. Their duration is variable, some ending in an hour or so, others, especially if complicated by bronchitis, continuing for days. The frequency of attacks varies from one or two a year to several daily. During attacks the lungs become over-distended with air, since the obstruction to respiration is greater in expiration than in inspiration and the muscles of forced inspiration which are brought into action are stronger than the expiratory muscles.
75. We understand from the passage that asthma .
A) leads to a narrowing of the smaller bronchi
B) is a respiratory disorder
C) is relatively rare in childhood
D) is commonly found among people with distended lungs

A) attacks of breathlessness may last as long as an hour
B) hem ay start to expectorate a small amount of viscid mucus
C) he will find inspiration more difficult than expiration
D) the expiratory muscles will be weakened
E) the attacks are likely to be of long duration
77. It is pointed out in the passage that, during an attack of asthma, . .
A) it is breathing out that is the real problem
B) a condition of breathlessness will very gradually develop
C) the recommended treatment varies according to the age of the patient
D) the cause of the respiratory obstruction can easily be observed
E) people automatically start to breathe more rapidly

Ionising radiation has proved to be most valuable, for example, in clinical diagnosis and radiotherapy. However, inadvertent exposure to relatively high doses of ionising radiation is capable of injuring and killing cells, inducing mutations, producing developmental abnormalities in fetuses exposed in utero or even producing latent cancers. On earth, it is impossible to escape exposure to radiation.
Cosmic rays bathe the earth continuously, as do terrestrial concentrations of radionuclides, such as radon gas. The two constitute natural background radiation. Few humans in developed countries escape diagnostic X-rays, and many require radiotherapy as a potential cure for various types of neoplasia. The early injurious effects of radiation appear only when certain cumulative levels of exposure to radiation have been exceeded. However, the later appearing consequences may have no thresholds; hence, the publics concern about the possible carcinogenecity of even low-level exposures.
78. According to the passage, ionising radiation ______________
A) will, in the long run, inevitably produce carcinogenecity
B) affects different people in different ways
C) is at the same time useful and dangerous
D) has no long term adverse effects
E) is the major reason for abnormalities in fetuses
79. We understand from the passage that no one ____________ .
A) need worry about low level exposure to radiation
B) can avoid diagnostic X-rays
C) who has not been exposed in utero to radiation has latent cancers
D) can escape exposure to background radiation
E) should go on with a course of radiotherapy if early harmful effects appear
80. We understand from the passage that there is considerable concern about the later appearing effects of radiation_________ .
A) although the level of cumulative radiation that causes them is very high
B) since the degree of radiation needed to produce them is unknown
C) even though it has been demonstrated that diagnostic X-rays do not cause any such effects
D) particularly, as they may cause mutations in yet unborn generations
E) though these may include the cure for certain types of neoplasia
