Read the following passage and mark the letter A,B,C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 46 to 55.
Watching for wildlife in the forest, we rarely see past the surface of things. Standing on the ground floor, we scan the leafy rafters, entirely overlooking the living world in the soil beneath out feet.
The forest‘s basement is a secret world. As different from our own world as water is from air, the soil seems quiet, even dead. But life bustles down below: a cubic inch of topsoil may contain billions of creatures.
Predators and prey roam beneath as well as above the forest floor. Furthermore, those upstairs and downstairs forest denizens live closely linked lives soil-dwelling bacteria and fungi break down deal organic matter into molecules that above ground plants use for food. Those plants, as well as animals, mature and die, leaving more organic matter to fuel the folks downstairs.
Like a well -insulated house, the soil protected its tenants from extreme temperatures, and from rain and snow. It also provides a bulwark against predators that roam the surface world. But the dense, protecting soil also limits mobility. Soil creatures must be specially equipped in order to travel easily through their dark, constricting realm.
Earthworms and ants are the champion earth-movers, creating channels that allow air and water to enter the soil. While
ants travel relatively far from their nests, earthworms work small areas, reprocessing vast amount of soil into fertile “waste”. In a single year, as much as 36 tons of soil may pass through the alimentary tracts of all the earthworms living in an acre of soil.

A. life in the forest soil B. the habitats of the forest animals

Read the following passage and mark the letter A,B,C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 56 to 65.
Experiments have shown that in selecting personnel for a job, interviewing is at best a hindrance, and may even cause harm. These studies have disclosed that the judgments of interviewers differ markedly and bear little or no relationship to the adequacy of the job applicants. Of the many reasons why this should be the case, three in particular stand out.
The first reason is related to an error of judgment known as the halo effect. If a person has one noticeable good trait, their other characteristics will be judged as better than they really are. Thus, an individual who dresses smartly and shows self- confidence is likely to be judged capable of doing a job well regardless of his or her real ability.
Interviewers are also prejudiced by an effect called the primacy effect. This error occurs when interpretation of later information is distorted by earlier connected information. Hence, in an interview situation, the interviewer spends most of the interview trying to confirm the impression given by the candidate in the first few moments. Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that such an impression is unrelated to the aptitude of the applicant.
The phenomenon known as the contrast effect also skews the judgment of interviewers. A suitable candidate may be underestimated because he or she contrasts with a previous one who appears exceptionally intelligent. Likewise, an average candidate who is preceded by one who gives a weak showing may be judged as more suitable than he or she really is.
Since interviews as a form of personnel selection have been shown to be inadequate, other selection procedures have been devised which more accurately predict candidate suitability. Of the various tests devised, the predictor which appears to do this most successfully is cognitive ability as measured by a variety of verbal and spatial tests.

A. judgments of interviewers concerning job applicants.
