    Passage 1 for 14-17 To many, it may seem that the lobster’s most natural habitat is on a large, oval plate between a cup of drawn butter and a lemon wedge. In fact, only a few of the hundreds of types of lobster are caught commercially. But those few species are some of the most heavily harvested creatures in the sea, and generate a multi-billion-dollar industry, with more than 200,000 tons (181,436 metric tons) of annual global catch. The lobsters that most people know from their dinner plates are the American and European clawed lobsters Homarus Americanus and Homarus Gammarus. These are cold water species that live on either side of the northern Atlantic Ocean. There are also tropical lobsters that are widely consumed, but these are generally clawless varieties called spiny and slipper lobsters. Lobsters are ten-legged crustaceans closely related to shrimp and crabs. These benthic, or bottom-dwelling. Creatures are found in all of the world’s oceans, as well as brackish environments and even freshwater. They have poor eyesight but highly developed senses of taste and smell. They feed primarily on fish and mollusks, but will consume algae and other plant life and even other lobsters. Female lobsters carry their eggs under their abdomens for up to year before leasing them as larvae into the water. The larvae go through several stages in the water column, before settling on the bottom, where they spend the rest of their lives. They generally prefer to live in self-dug burrows, in rocky crevices, or hidden among sea grasses. Lobsters must shed their shells in order to grow, and some species can live to be 50 years old or more, growing continually throughout their lives. Lobsters have not always been considered chic eats. In 17th and 20th century brought fresh lobster to distant urban areas, and its reputation as a delicacy grew. Populations of commercially important lobster species are thought to be declining, and overfishing, particularly of clawed lobsters in Europe, is taking a toll. Additionally, pollution is causing shell rot and other illnesses in normally disease-resistant species.

    Passage 2 for 18-20 Recent research into whether people who are good at solving brain twisters are more intelligent than those who are not suggest that the ‘experts’ make use of a special type of insight. However, not only do they appear to be good at this (choosing with the elements to process, to combine, or to compare from the information given), but they are also clever at making use of ‘general’ or prior knowledge and at monitoring their own progress with a particular problem. In addition, they appear capable of adopting an appropriate cognitive style consisting of combination of impulse and reflection. Just what this combination is still mystifies the researchers, and so does the original question, to which their answer is a somewhat frustrating ‘possibly’.

    1) I didn’t go to Jakarta yesterday because my friend was late and the train left us. I wish I ... to Jakarta yesterday. a. Went b. Have gone c. Have been gone d. Had gone

    • A.

      A

    • B.

      B

    • C.

      C

    • D.

      D

    Correct Answer
    D. D
    Explanation
    The correct answer is D. "Had gone". This is because the sentence is referring to a past unrealized action. The speaker is expressing a regret about not going to Jakarta yesterday due to their friend being late. "Had gone" is the correct past perfect tense form to indicate that the action of going to Jakarta did not happen in the past.

    2) It is the first time that the princess of Wales has been to the United States, ...? a. Isn’t she b. Hasn’t she c. Isn’t it d. Hasn’t it

      C

    • D.

      D

    Correct Answer
    C. C
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Isn't it." This is because the sentence is in the present perfect tense, which is used to talk about an action that started in the past and is still relevant in the present. The phrase "isn't it" is used to seek confirmation or agreement, and in this case, it is asking for confirmation that it is the first time the princess of Wales has been to the United States.

    • C.

      C

    • D.

      D

    Correct Answer
    D. D
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "d. Neither do I." This answer is correct because it correctly uses the negative form "neither do I" to agree with the statement that most foreign students don't like American coffee. The other options (a, b, and c) are incorrect because they use incorrect grammar or do not properly agree with the statement.

    4) We had hoped ... the game, but the other team played very well. a. State University to win b. That State University win c. That State University would win d. State University’s winning

      A

    • B.

      B

    • C.

      C

    • D.

      D

    Correct Answer
    C. C
    Explanation
    The correct answer is C. "That State University would win." This is the correct answer because it correctly uses the subjunctive mood to express a hoped-for outcome in the past. The phrase "that State University would win" indicates a desired outcome that did not actually happen, as indicated by the phrase "but the other team played very well." The use of "would" in this context is necessary to convey the hypothetical or desired nature of the outcome.

      A

    • B.

      B

    • C.

      C

    • D.

      D

    Correct Answer
    A. A
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A. The explanation for this is that the phrase "capable of" is the correct preposition to use when talking about someone's ability to do something. In this case, the tiny brain is capable of solving both simple and complex number problems. The other options, "capable to solve," "capable in solving," and "capable with solution," are grammatically incorrect and do not convey the same meaning as the correct answer.

    • C.

      C

    • D.

      D

    Correct Answer
    A. A
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A because it is the only option that correctly uses the phrase "he'd rather not." The other options either use incorrect verb forms ("won't rather" and "he'll rather not") or incorrect verb tense ("he'd rather didn't").
