    Reading Comprehension number 15 - 17 The nuclear family, consisting of a mother, father, and their children, may be more an American ideal than an American reality. Of course, the so-called traditional American family was always more varied than we had been led to believe, reflecting the very different racial, ethnic, class, and religious customs among different American groups. The most recent government statistics reveal that only about one third of all CURRENT American families fit the traditional mold and another third consists of married couples who either have no children or have none still living at home. Of the final one third, about 20 % of the total number of American households are single people, usually women over sixty-five years of age. A small percentage, about 3 % of the total, consists of unmarried people who choose to live together, and the rest, about 7 % are single, usually divorced parents, with at least one child. Today, these varied family types are typical, and therefore, normal. Apparently, many Americans are achieving supportive relationships in family forms other than the traditional one. 15. The word CURRENT in the passage could best be replaced by which of the following?

    • A.

      Typical

    • B.

      Present

    B. Present
    Explanation

    Reading Comprehension 18-20 Rainforests circle the globe for twenty degrees of latitude on both sides of the equator. In that relatively narrow band of the planet, more than half of all the species of plants and animals in the world make their home. Several hundred different varieties of trees may grow in a single acre, and JUST one of those trees may be habitat for more than ten thousand kinds of spiders, ants, and other insects. Unfortunately, half of the world's rainforests have already been destroyed, and at the current rate, another 25 percent will be lost by the year 2000. Every sixty seconds, one hundred acres of rainforest is being cleared. By the time you finish reading this passage, two hundred acres will be destroyed! When this happens, constant rains erode the former forest floor, and the ecology of the region is altered forever. Thousands of species of plants and animals are condemned to extinction and, since we aren't able to predict the ramifications of this loss to a delicate global ecology, we don't know what we may be doing to the future of the human species as well. 18.

    B. Three-quarters of them will be gone by the year 2000.
    Explanation
    If the current rate of deforestation continues, three-quarters of the world's rainforests will be destroyed by the year 2000. This is stated in the passage, which mentions that half of the rainforests have already been destroyed and another 25 percent will be lost by the year 2000. This means that a total of 75 percent (half plus another 25 percent) of the rainforests will be gone by that time.
