Edison once worked for the railroad. Something happened that changed the course of his career. Edison 
saved the life of a station official's child, who had fallen onto the tracks of an oncoming train. For his 
bravery, the boy's father taught Edison how to use the telegraph.  
     From 1862 to 1868, Edison worked as a roving telegrapher in the Midwest, the South, Canada, and 
New  England.  During  this  time,  he  began  developing  a  telegraphic  repeating  instrument  that  made  it 
possible to transmit messages automatically.   
     Edison moved to New York City. Within a year, he was able to open a workshop in Newark, New 
Jersey. He produced the Edison Universal Stock Printer, the automatic telegraph, the quadruplex, as well 
as other printing telegraphs, while working out of Newark.  
       Thomas  Alva  Edison  died  in  West  Orange,  New  Jersey  on  October  18,  1931.  At  the  time  of  this 
death, he was experimenting on rubber from goldenrod. After his death, Edison became a folk hero of 
legendary status. His inventions had truly and profoundly affected the shaping of modern society.

The following text is for questions 23 to 25. 
Have you ever been stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire? Do you want to be able to change a tire without 
having to ask for help? Fortunately, changing a tire is a pretty simple task, provided you're prepared and willing to 
exert a little effort. 
1.  Find a flat, stable and safe place to change your tire. You should have a solid, level surface that will restrict 
the car from rolling. If you are near a road, park as far from traffic as possible and turn on your emergency 
flashers (hazard lights). Avoid soft ground and hills. 
2.  Apply the parking brake and put car into "Park" position. If  you  have a standard transmission, put  your 
vehicle in first or reverse. 
3.  Place a heavy object (e.g., rock, concrete, spare wheel, etc.) in front of the front and back tires. 
4.  Take  out  the  spare  tire  and  the  jack.  Place  the  jack  under  the  frame  near  the  tire  that  you  are  going  to 
change. Ensure that the jack is in contact with the metal portion of your car's frame  
5.  Raise the jack until it is supporting (but not lifting) the car. The jack should be firmly in place against the 
underside of the vehicle. Check to make sure that the jack is perpendicular to the ground. 
6.  Remove the hubcap and loosen the nuts by turning counterclockwise. Don't take them all the way off; just 
break the resistance. By keeping the wheel on the ground when you first loosen the nuts, you'll make sure 
that you're turning the nuts instead of the wheel. 
7.  Pump or crank the jack to lift the tire off the ground. You need to lift it high enough to remove the flat tire 
and replace it with a spare. 
8.  Remove the nuts the rest of the way. Turn them counterclockwise until they are loose. Repeat with all lug 
nuts, then remove the nuts completely. 
9.  Remove the tire. Place the flat tire under the vehicle so in the event of a jack failure the vehicle will fall on 
the old wheel, hopefully preventing injury. If the jack is placed on a flat, solid base, you shouldn't have any 
10.  Place the spare tire on the hub. Take care to align the rim of the spare tire with the wheel bolts, then put on 
the lug nuts. 
11.  Tighten the nuts by hand until they are all snug 
12.  Lower the car without applying full weight on the tire. Tighten the nuts as much as possible. 
13. Lower the car to the ground fully and remove the jack. Finish tightening the nuts and replace the hubcap.

In 1991, Shark Bay was inscribed into the UNESCO World Heritage list in recognition of its outstanding 
natural beauty, biological diversity, fascinating ecology and unique insights into the Earth's history. Here, 
you  can  meet  the  Monkey  Mia  dolphins,  the  world's  largest  population  of  dugongs,  walk  among  the 
largest  and  oldest  living  fossils  on  the  planet  and  discover  the  30,000  year  history  and  culture  of  its 
Indigenous people. 
     The only town in the Shark Bay region is Denham. It's an eight hour drive or a two hour flight from 
Perth and, from here, you can join the Shark Bay World Heritage Drive, taking in all the main attractions. 
If you don't have wheels, there are plenty of extended tours from Perth, or day and half-day adventures 
from Denham. 
     A closer look at this vast landscape will reveal an abundance of rare and unique plant and animal life, 
some  of  which  are  found  nowhere else  on  Earth.  It's  home  to  over  100  known  species  of  reptiles  and 
amphibians,  240  varieties  of  birds,  320  types  of  fish,  80  different  corals  and  820  species  of  plants, 
including  700  flowering  species.  Protecting  many  endangered  species,  Shark  Bay's  Francois  Peron 
National  Park  is  one  of  the  most  important  wilderness  areas  in  Australia.  
     Just  off-shore,  in  Shark  Bay  Marine  Park,  lies  Dirk  Hartog  Island  National Park  -  a  haven  for  rare 
burrowing frogs and white fairy wrens, and a top spot for fishing, diving, snorkeling and four-wheel-drive 
adventures. Today, you can arrive by barge with your 4WD, chartered flight or in your own boat. 
     Further south in Shark Bay, you can walk along one of only two beaches in the world formed entirely 
of tiny white shells, or visit the Hamelin Pool Stromatolites and get a glimpse of life on Earth over 3,500 
million years ago. 
     By far the most popular and spectacular attraction is Monkey Mia, where wild dolphins come in to 
shore every day to meet and interact with people.  
     Choose from a huge variety of accommodation options in Denham, or base yourself in Monkey Mia 
for an early morning dolphin encounter.

The following text is for questions 36 to 38. 
During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, European traders started to get involved in the Slave Trade. 
European  traders  had  previously  been  interested  in  African  nations  and  kingdoms,  such  as  Ghana  and 
Mali, due to their sophisticated trading networks. Traders then wanted to trade in human beings.  
     They took enslaved people from western Africa to Europe and the Americas. At first this was on quite 
a  small  scale  but  the  Slave  Trade  grew  during  the  seventeenth  and  eighteenth  centuries,  as  European 
countries conquered many of the Caribbean islands and much of North and South America.  
     Europeans who settled  in  the Americas  were  lured  by  the  idea  of  owning  their  own  land  and  were 
reluctant to work for others. Convicts from Britain were sent to work on the plantations but there were 
never enough so, to satisfy the tremendous demand for labor, planters purchased slaves. 
     They wanted the enslaved people to work in mines and on tobacco plantations in South America and 
on  sugar  plantations  in  the  West  Indies.  Millions  of  Africans  were  enslaved  and  forced  across  the 
Atlantic, to labor in plantations in the Caribbean and America.   
      Slavery changed when Europeans became involved, as it led to generation after generation of peoples 
being taken from their homelands and enslaved forever. It led to people being legally defined as chattel 
     A chattel slave is an enslaved person who is owned forever and whose children and children's children 
are automatically enslaved. Chattel slaves are individuals treated as complete, property to be bought and 
sold. Chattel slavery was supported and made legal by European governments and monarchs. This type of 
enslavement was practiced in European colonies from the sixteenth century onwards. 

36.  What is the topic of the text? 
A.  Slavery in Europe 
B.  The abolition of slavery  
C.  C. Countries in which slaves were taken  
D.  Human beings trade committed by Europeans 
E.  Slaves in plantations in the Caribbean and America

A developed country, industrialized country, or "more economically developed country" (MEDC), is a 
sovereign state that has a highly developed economy and advanced technological infrastructure relative to 
other  less  industrialized  nations.  Most  commonly,  the  criteria  for  evaluating  the  degree  of  economic 
development  are  gross  domestic  product  (GDP),  gross  national  product  (GNP),  the  per  capita  income, 
level  of  industrialization,  amount  of  widespread  infrastructure  and  general  standard  of  living.  Which 
criteria are to be used and which countries can be classified as being developed are subjects of debate. 
     Developed countries have post-industrial economies, meaning the service sector provides more wealth 
than  the  industrial  sector.  They  are  contrasted  with  developing  countries,  which  are  in  the  process  of 
industrialization, or undeveloped countries, which are pre-industrial and almost entirely agrarian. As of 
2015, advanced economies comprise 60.8% of global GDP based on nominal values and 42.9% of global 
GDP based on purchasing-power parity (PPP) according to the International Monetary Fund. In 2015, the 
ten largest advanced economies by GDP in both nominal and PPP terms were Australia, Canada, France, 
Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
