Reading Comprehension
Questions 1-9
In 1972, a century after the first national park in the United States was established at
Yellowstone, legislation was passed to create the National Marine Sanctuaries Program.
The intent of this legislation was to provide protection to selected coastal habitats similar
5 To that existing for land areas designated as national parks. The designation of an areas a marine sanctuary indicates that it is a protected area, just as a national park is. People are permitted to visit and observe there, but living organisms and their environments may not be harmed or removed.
The National Marine Sanctuaries Program is administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a branch of the United States Department of Commerce.
10 Initially, 70 sites were proposed as candidates for sanctuary status. Two and a half decades later, only fifteen sanctuaries had been designated, with half of these established after
1978. They range in size from the very small (less than I square kilometer) Fagatele Bay
National Marine Sanctuary in American Samoa to the Monterey Bay National Marine
Sanctuary in California, extending over 15,744 square kilometers.
15 The

National Marine Sanctuaries Program is a crucial part of new management practices in which whole communities of species, and not just individual species, are offered some degree ofprotection from habitat degradation and overexploitation. Only in this way can a reasonable degree of marine species diversity be maintained in a setting that also maintains the natural interrelationships that exist among these species.
20 Several other types of marine protected areas exist in the United States and other countries. The National Estuarine Research Reserve System, managed by the United
States government, includes 23 designated and protected estuaries. Outside the United
States, marine protected-area programs exist as marine parks, reserves, and preserves.
Over 100 designated areas exist around the periphery of the Carbbean Sea. Others range
25 from the well-known Australian Great Barrer Reef Marine Park to lesser-known parks in countries such as Thailand and Indonesia, where tourism is placing growing pressures on fragile coral reef systems. As state, national, and international agencies come to recognize the importance of conserving marine biodiversity, marine projected areas. whether as sanctuaries, parks, or estuarine reserves, will play an increasingly important role in preserving that diversity.

Questions 10-17

From their inception, most rural neighborhoods in colonial North America included at least one carpenter, joiner, sawyer, and cooper in woodworking; a weaver and a tailor for clothing production; a tanner, currier, and cordwainer (shoemaker) for fabricating leather objects; and a blacksmith for metalwork, Where stone was the local building material, a
5 mason was sure to appear on the list of people who paid taxes. With only an apprentice as an assistant, the rural artisan provided the neighborhood with common goods from furniture to shoes to farm equipment in exchange for cash or for ―goods in kind‖ from the customer’s field, pasture, or dairy. Sometimes artisans transformed material provided by the customer wove cloth of yam spun at the farm from the wool of the family sheep; made chairs or tables
10 from wood cut in the customer’s own woodlot; produced shoes or leather breeches from cow, deer, or sheepskin tanned on the farm.
Like their farming neighbors, rural artisans were part of an economy seen, by one historian, as ―an orchestra conducted by nature.‖ Some tasks could not be done in the winter, other had to be put off during harvest time, and still others waited on raw materials that were
15 only produced seasonally. As the days grew shorter, shop hours kept pace, since few artisans could afford enough artificial light to continue work when the Sun went down. To the best of their ability, colonial artisans tried to keep their shops as efficient as possible and to regularize their schedules and methods of production for the best return on their investment in time, tools, and materials, While it is pleasant to imagine a woodworker, for example,
20 carefully matching lumber, joining a chest together without resort to nails or glue, and applying all thought and energy to carving beautiful designs on the finished piece, the time required was not justified unless the customer was willing to pay extra for the quality— and few in rural areas were, Artisans, therefore, often found it necessary to employ as many shortcuts and economics as possible while still producing satisfactory products.

(C) continuous in winter

Questions 18-28
Cities develop as a result of functions that they can perform. Some functions result directly from the ingenuity of the citizenry, but most functions result from the needs of the local area and of the surrounding hinterland (the region that supplies goods to the city and to which the city furnishes services and other goods). Geographers often make
5 a distinction between the situation and the site of a city. Situation refers to the general position in relation to the surrounding region, whereas site involves physical characteristics of the specific location. Situation is normally much more important to the continuing prosperity of a city. if a city is well situated in regard to its hinterland, its development is much more likely to continue. Chicago, for example, possesses an almost
10 unparalleled situation: it is located at the southern end of a huge lake that forces east-west transportation lines to be compressed into its vicinity, and at a meeting of significant land and water transport routes. It also overlooks what is one of the world’s finest large farming regions. These factors ensured that Chicago would become a great city regardless of the disadvantageous characteristics of the available site, such as being prone to flooding during thunderstorm activity.
15
Similarly, it can be argued that much of New York City’s importance stems from its early and continuing advantage of situation. Philadephia and Boston both originated at about the same time as New York and shared New York’s location at the western end of one of the world’s most important oceanic trade routes, but only New York possesses an
20 easy-access functional connection (the Hudson-Mohawk lowland) to the vast Midwestern hinterland. This account does not alone explain New York’s primacy, but it does include several important factors. Among the many aspects of situation that help to explain why some cities grow and others do not, original location on a navigable waterway seems particularly applicable. Of course, such characteristic as slope, drainage, power
25 resources, river crossings, coastal shapes, and other physical characteristics help to determine city location, but such factors are normally more significant in early stages of city development than later.
18. What does the passage mainly discuss?
(A) The development of trade routes through United States cities
(B) Contrasts in settlement patterns in United States
(C) Historical differences among three large United States cities
(D) The importance of geographical situation in the growth of United States cities

Questions 29-40
The largest of the giant gas planets, Jupiter, with a volume 1,300 times greater than
Earth’s, contains more than twice the mass of all the other planets combined. It is thought to be a gaseous and fluid planet without solid surfaces, Had it been somewhat more massive,
Jupiter might have attained internal temperatures as high as the ignition point for nuclear
5 reactions, and it would have flamed as a star in its own right. Jupiter and the other giant planets are of a low-density type quite distinct from the terrestrial planets: they are composed predominantly of such substances as hydrogen, helium, ammonia, and methane, unlike terrestrial planets. Much of Jupiter’s interior might be in the form of liquid, metallic hydrogen, Normally, hydrogen is a gas, but under pressures of millions of kilograms per
10 square centimeter, which exist in the deep interior of Jupiter, the hydrogen atoms might lock together to form a liquid with the properties of a metal. Some scientists believe that the innermost core of Jupiter might be rocky, or metallic like the core of Earth.
Jupiter rotates very fast, once every 9.8 hours. As a result, its clouds, which are composed largely of frozen and liquid ammonia, have been whipped into alternating dark and bright
15 bands that circle the planet at different speeds in different latitudes. Jupiter’s puzzling
Great Red Spot changes size as it hovers in the Southern Hemisphere. Scientists speculate it might be a gigantic hurricane, which because of its large size (the Earth could easily fit inside it), lasts for hundreds of years.
Jupiter gives off twice as much heat as it receives from the Sun. Perhaps this is primeval
20 heat or beat generated by the continued gravitational contraction of the planet. Another starlike characteristic of Jupiter is its sixteen natural satellites, which, like a miniature model of the Solar System, decrease in density with distance—from rocky moons close to Jupiter to icy moons farther away. If Jupiter were about 70 times more massive, it would have become a star, Jupiter is the best-preserved sample of the early solar nebula, and with its satellites, might contain the most important clues about the origin of the Solar System.

Questions 41-50
The tern ―art deco‖ has come to encompass three distinct but related design trends of the 1920’s and 1930’s. The first was what is frequently referred to as ―zigzag moderne‖
–the exotically ornamental style of such skyscrapers as the Chrysler Building in New
York City and related structures such as the Paramount Theater in Oakland,
5 California The word ―zigzag‖ alludes to the geometric and stylized ornamentation of zigzags, angular patterns, abstracted plant and animal motifs, sunbursts, astrological imagery, formalized fountains, and related themes that were applied in mosaic relief. and mural form to the exterior and interior of the buildings. Many of these buildings were shaped in the ziggurat form, a design resembling an ancient Mesopotamian temple tower
10 that recedes in progressively smaller stages to the summit, creating a staircase-like effect.
The second manifestation of art deco was the 1930’s streamlined moderne‖ style—a
Futuristic-looking aerodynamic style of rounded corners and horizontal bands known as
―speed stripes.‖ In architecture, these elements were frequently accompanied by round windows, extensive use of glass block, and flat rooftops.
15 The third style, referred to as cither ― international stripped classicism,‖ or simply
― classical moderne,‖ also came to the forefront during the Depression, a period of severe economic difficult in the 1930’s. This was amore conservative style, blending a simplified modernistic style with a more austere form of geometric and stylized relief sculpture and other ornament, including interior murals. May buildings in this style
20 were erected nationwide through government programs during the Depression .
Although art deco in its many forms was largely perceived as thoroughly modern, http://diterbitkan.blogspot.com Page 15

it was strongly influenced by the decorative arts movements that immediately preceded it. For example, like ―art nouveau‖ (1890-1910), art deco also used plant motifs, but regularized the forms into abstracted repetitive patterns rather than presenting them as
25 flowing, asymmetrical foliage, Like the Viennese craftspeople of the Wiener Werkstatte, art deco designers worked with exotic materials, geometricized shapes, and colorfully ornate patterns. Furthermore, like the artisans of the Arts and Crafts Movement in England and the United States, art deep practitioners considered it their mission to transform the domestic environment through well-designed furniture and household accessories.

(A) The influence of art deco on the design of furniture and household accessories
(B) Ways in which government programs encouraged the development of art deco
(C) Architectural manifestations of art deco during the 1920’s and 1930’s
(D) Reasons for the popularity of art deco in New York and California
42. The word ―encompass‖ in line 1 is closest in meaning to ….
(A) separate
(B) include
(C) replace
(D) enhance
43. The phrase ―The first‖ in line 2 refers to ….
(A) the term ―art deco‖
(B) design trends
(C) the 1920’s and 1930’s

...ASSIGNMENT SAIMA SHARMIN ID 3-08-14-025 BATCH - 14 DEPARTMENT OF MANAGEMENT STUDIES FACULTY OF BUSINESS STUDY UNIVERSITY OF DHAKA ASSIGNMENT – 1 General Principles of Bank Management A Bank manages its assets and liabilities in four ways. 1. Asset Management 2. Liquidity Management 3. Capital Adequacy Management 4. Liability Management 1. Asset Management Asset management is to acquiring assets with the highest return and the lowest risk. To maximize its profits, a bank must simultaneously seek the highest returns possible on loans and securities, reduce risk, and make adequate provisions for liquidity by holding liquid assets. Asset Management involves four basic principles: 1. Finding borrowers who will pay high interest rates but who are unlikely to default. Banks seek out loan business by advertising their borrowing rates and by approaching corporations directly to solicit loans. It is up to the bank’s loan officer to decide if potential borrowers are good credit risks who will make interest and principal payments on time. 2. Purchase securities with high returns and low risk. 3. Lower risk by diversifying - Diversifying the bank’s asset holdings to minimize risk: holding many types of securities and making many types of loans offers protection when there are losses in one type of security or one type of loan.

...CHAPTER 5 Activity-Based Management Chapter Outline A. Cost Management Challenges — Chapter 5 presents three questions to be answered in this chapter. 1. Is activity-based costing (ABC) enough by itself to improve efficiency? Can cost managers ensure that an organization will meet its efficiency goals merely by measuring costs more accurately by using ABC? 2. Does the cost manager’s responsibility end with making recommendations for improvements? Are the numbers generated by ABC, by themselves, enough to guide managers to correct decisions regarding resource use? 3. How does one know that activity-based methods of cost management are worthwhile? B. Learning Objectives — This chapter has six learning objectives. 1. The key steps of an activity-based management system are presented. 2. How to use activity-based costing for target costing. 3. Ways to identify and measure the costs of activities that do or do not add value in organizations. 4. How the elements of an ABM system can help to identify opportunities for process improvements. 5.

A lens is an optical device which transmits and refracts light, converging or diverging the beam.[citation needed] A simple lens consists of a single optical element. A compound lens is an array of simple lenses (elements) with a common axis; the use of multiple elements allows more optical aberrations to be corrected than is possible with a single element. Lenses are typically made of glass or transparent plastic. Elements which refract electromagnetic radiation outside the visual spectrum are also called lenses: for instance, a microwave lens can be made from paraffin wax. The variant spelling lense is sometimes seen.

We understood that he is a very busy man, works for long hours, is always under stress, has no time for himself, lives in polluted environment of vehicle smokes and chemicals and he is performing a highly skilled job but is not fully educated for the same. Therefore, our activation idea did try to this address these issues by introducing Castrol's Sampoorna Suraksha.

...12 years a slave In the years before the Civil War, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is kidnapped and sold into slavery in the South. Subjected to the cruelty of one malevolent owner (Michael Fassbender), he also finds unexpected kindness from another, as he struggles continually to survive and maintain some of his dignity. Then in the 12th year of the disheartening ordeal, a chance meeting with an abolitionist from Canada changes Solomon's life forever. Twelve Years a Slave (1853) is a memoir and slave narrative by American Solomon Northup as told to and edited by David Wilson. Northup, a black man who was born free in New York state, details his being tricked to go to Washington, D.C., where he was kidnapped and sold into slavery in the Deep South. After having been kept in bondage for 12 years in Louisiana by various masters, Northup was able to write to friends and family in New York, who in turn secured his release with the aid of the state. Northup's account provides extensive details on the slave markets in Washington, D.C. and New Orleans, and describes at length cotton and sugar cultivation and slave treatment on major plantations in Louisiana. The work was published eight years before the Civil War by Derby & Miller of Auburn, New York,[2] soon after Harriet Beecher Stowe's best-selling novel about slavery,Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852), to which it lent factual support.

Vậy P(A)= =0.6. 1.3 a) A = “quả cầu thứ nhất là trắng” Số kết cục duy nhất đồng khả năng là tất cả các phương pháp để lấy được 1 quả cầu ra khỏi (a+b) quả cầu. Vậy n = a+b. Số kết cục thuận lợi lấy ra quả cầu thứ nhất màu trắng là a. Vậy xác suất P(A) = b) Nếu quả thứ nhất trắng thì chọn quả thứ 2 sẽ còn a+b-1 kết cục đồng khả năng. Số kết cục thuận lợi để quả thứ 2 màu trắng là a-1 Vậy xác suất P(B) = c) tương tự câu b), vì quả thứ hai là trắng nên số kết cục đồng khả năng khi chọn quả thứ nhất là a+b-1 trong khi số kết quả thuận lợi là a-1. Vậy P(C) = 1.4. a) Số kết quả đồng khả năng thực......
