I had no house. In London I rented a service flat in Dolphin Square. It consumed my money in steady installments on a weekly basis. The bills arrived in a woman’s handwriting:rounded and flowing easily with the lower line of the writing creating a regular, almostscalloped pattern. The handwriting spoke of a woman at absolute peace, without anxiety. I envied her calmness and absence of ambition. And when I went down to the office to settle the bill. I tried to figure out which clerk it was — among all of those slaves of routine — who was so blessed. The author of the figures of the fierce, debilitating demand had stirred my curiosity.

Instruction : Read the following passage and choose the best answer.
1 It is estimated that over 99 percent of all species that ever existed have become extinct.What causes extinction? When a species is no longer adapted to a changed environment, it may perish. The exact causes of a species death vary from situation to situation. Rapid ecological change may render an environment hostile to a species. For 5 example, temperatures may change and a species may not be able to adapt. Food resources may be affected by environmental changes, which will then cause problems for a species requiring these resources. Other species may become better adapted to an environment, resulting in competition and, ultimately, in the death of a species.
The fossil record reveals that extinction has occurred throughout the history of
10 Earth. Recent analyses have also revealed that on some occasions many species became extinct at the same time a mass extinction. One of the best-known examples of mass extinction occurred 65 million years ago with the demise of dinosaurs and many other forms of life. Perhaps the largest mass extinction was the one that occurred 225 million years ago, when approximately 95 percent of all species died. Mass extinctions can be 15caused by a relatively rapid change in the environment and can be worsened by the closeinterrelationship of many species. If, for example, something were to happen to destroy much of the plankton in the oceans, then the oxygen content of Earth would drop, affecting even organisms not living in the oceans. Such a change would probably lead to a ‘mass extinction.
20 One interesting, and controversial, finding is that extinctions during the past 250 million years have tended to be more intense every 26 million years. This periodic extinction might be due to intersection of the Earth’s orbit with a cloud of comets, but this theory ispurely speculative. Some researchers have also speculated that extinction may often be random. That is, certain species may be eliminated and others may survive
25 for no particular reason. A species’ survival may have nothing to do with its ability or inability to adapt. If so, some of evolutionary history may reflect a sequence of essentially random events.

- environment 2. species
- extinction 4. 99 percent
- The word “ultimately” in line is closest in meaning to …………..
- exceptionally 2. dramatically

- They have remained basically unchanged from their original forms.
- They have been able to adapt to ecological changes.
- They have caused rapid change in the environment.
- They are no longer in existence.
- Which of the following is NOT mentioned in paragraph 1 as resulting from rapid ecological change?
- Temperature changes 2. Availability of food resources
- Introduction of new species 4. Competition among species
- The word “demise” in line 12 is closest in meaning to ………….
- change 2. recovery
- help 4. death
