Use
the correct form of each word in bold type to complete the numbered
spaces provided in the passage. Write your answers in the table given
below.

The
concept of urban agriculture may conjure up images of rooftop,
backyard or community gardens scattered among downtown city streets
and surrounding neighborhoods. But in the Seattle area, and within
and beyond the Puget Sound region, it means a great deal more. “Urban
agriculture doesn’t (41) __(
necessity)___
equate to production that occurs only in a metropolitan urban area,”
says Jason Niebler, who directs the Sustainable Agriculture Education
(SAgE) Initiative at Seattle Central Community College. “It
means we are providing for growing population food needs from
surrounding rural landscapes, as well as from the core urban
landscape.”

Picture
a series of concentric circles, with an urban core that produces some
food at varying (42) ___(
capable)___,
surrounded by a series of outlying rings of small farms that become
increasingly more rural with distance. The hope is that such land use
planning, from the inner core to the outer rings, will encourage
local ecologically sound sustainable food production. This, in turn,
will create local jobs and decrease (43) ___(
rely)___
on distant food products that (44) ___(
origin)___
from petroleum-intensive large scale farms.

That’s
the idea behind SAgE, believed to be the nation’s first
metropolitan-based community college sustainable agriculture program
that emphasizes farming practices across diverse landscape types from
urban centers to surrounding rural environs. “It’s small
scale agriculture with an urban focus,” Niebler says. “Any
urban population, large or small, can practice sustainable
agriculture, improve food security and protect the environment, which
ultimately results in resilient food systems and communities.”

SAgE
is a part of National Science Foundation’s Advanced
Technological Education (ATE) Program, which is providing the project
with $157,375 over two years. ATE’s goal is to support projects that strengthen the skills of (45) __( technical)__ who work in industries regarded as vital to the national’s (46) ___( prosperous)__ and security. The support largely goes to community colleges that work in partnership with universities, secondary schools, businesses and industries, as well as government agencies, which design and (47) __( implementation)__ model workforce initiatives. The SAgE project focuses on the environmental, socioeconomic, political and cultural issues related to sustainable food systems, within Puget Sound watersheds through student and community education and research, and technological (48) ___( innovate)___. The curriculum offers courses that cover such issues as agricultural ecology, urban food systems, food politics and ethics, soil science, sustainable food production and technology, the integration of food and forests, and career opportunities. We’ve created a curriculum that is fundamental in nature, addressing the principles of sustainable agriculture and what a food system is – how it functions both locally and globally,” Niebler says. “These courses are challenging, robust and (49) ___( inspire) ___. One of the really wonderful things about them is that we offer service learning opportunities, where students devote a portion of their time to working with local partner organizations. They can do a research project, or a service learning option. The ideal would be to (50) __( prompting)___ students into careers that involve sustainable practices in an urban agriculture setting.” (Adapted from “Promoting Sustainable Agriculture” by Mariene Cimons.)  41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 III. SECTION THREE: READING (7/20 points) Part 1: (2 points) Read the text below and decide which answer A, B, C, or D best fits each space. Write your answers in the table provided below. Schools in the United States have not always had a large number of libraries. As recently as 1958 about half of the public schools in the United States had no libraries at all. The (51)________ of public school libraries increased dramatically (52)_______ the federal government passed the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, ( 53)_______ provided funds for school districts to improve their education programs and facilities, including their libraries. (54) ________, many educators claim that since the legislation was passed federal spending has not increased sufficiently to meet the rising (55)______ of new library technologies such as computer databases and Internet access. Because the federal government provides only limited funds to schools, individual school districts (56) ­­­_______on funds from local property taxes to meet the vast majority of public school expenses. Therefore, the libraries of the public schools tend to reflect the (57) ______ capabilities of the communities in which they are located. Districts in wealthy suburbs often have fully staffed libraries (58) _______ abundant resources, spacious facilities, and curricular and instructional support. In (59) ______, school districts in many poor areas house their libraries in ordinary classrooms or in small rooms.

Seat Allocation Requests for particular seats can be made on most coach breaks when booking, but since allocations are made on a first come first served basis, early booking is advisable. When bookings are made with us you will be offered the best seats that are available on the coach at that time. Travel Documents When you have paid your deposit we will send to you all the necessary documents and labels, so that you receive them in good time before the coach break departure date. Certain documents, for example, air or boat tickets, may have to be retained and your driver or courier will then issue them to you at the relevant point. Special Diets If you require a special diet you must inform us at the time of booking with a copy of the diet. This will be notified to the hotel or hotels on your coach break, but on certain coach breaks the hotels used are tourist class and whilst offering value for money within the price range, they may not have the full facilities to cope with special diets. Any extra costs incurred must be paid to the hotel by yourself before departure from the hotel. Accommodation Many of our coach-breaks now include, within the price, accommodation with private facilities, and this will be indicated on the coach break page. Other coach breaks have a limited number of rooms with private facilities which, subject to availability, can be reserved and guaranteed at the time of booking - the supplementary charge shown in the price panel will be added to your account. On any coach break, there are only a limited number of single rooms. When a single room is available, it may be subject to a supplementary charge and this will be shown on the brochure page. Entertainment Some of our hotels arrange additional entertainment which could include music, dancing, film shows, etc. The nature and frequency of the entertainment presented is at the discretion of the hotel and therefore not guaranteed and could be withdrawn if there is a lack of demand or insufficient numbers in the hotel. 71.

Write your answers in the table provided below. Chocolate, which has its origins in South America, is now part of a multi-million pound worldwide business. At Easter, British people spend over$230 million on chocolate. A
massive eight per cent of all chocolate is bought at this time.

(76)____.
Although the large scale industrial production of chocolate began in
the last century, the cacao plant was first cultivated by the Aztec,
Toltec and Mayan civilizations of Central America over three thousand
years ago.

The
cacao tree is an evergreen, tropical plant which is found in Africa,
South and Central America, the West Indies and South East Asia. The
fruit of this tree is melon-sized and contains 20-40 seeds. (77)____.
In English – speaking countries, they are called cacao beans.
This is a misspelling from the 17
th
century when they were also called cacao and cacao beans.

The
Aztecs used cocoa beans as money. (78)____. This is from the world in
the Aztec language, Nahuatl, meaning “bitter water”.
(79)____. The Spanish found the drink more palatable mixed with
cinnamon and sugar, but the recipe did not spread to the rest of
Europe for another century. In the late 17
th
century, chocolate houses were set up in Europe’s capital
cities, where people gathered to drink chocolate.

(80)____.
But in 1826, CJ Van Houten of the Netherlands invented chocolate
powder. (81)____.

The
age of the chocolate bar as we know it began in 1847 when a Bristol
company, Fry and Sons, combined cocoa butter with pure chocolate
liquor and sugar to produce a solid block that you could eat.
(82)____.

At
the turn of the century, the British chocolate market was dominated
by French companies. In 1879 the English company Cadbury even named
their Birmingham factory Bournville (ville is the French word for
town) in the hope that a little glamour would rub off. But then came
Cadbury’s famous Dairy Milk bar which began life as a Dairymaid
in 1905. (83)____.

It
seems that, for the time being at least, chocolate intake in Britain
has established at about four bars each week. (84)____. The latest
market trick is the so-called “extended line”. This is
when the humble chocolate bar becomes an ice cream, a soft drink or a
dessert, to tempt chocoholics who have grown tired of conventional
snacks.

At
the other end of the production process, cacao farmers are still
feeling the effects of a crash in cocoa bean prices at the end of
1980s. (85)____. Perhaps you could spare a thought for them as you

A.
This was made by extracting most of the cocoa butter from the crushed
beans.

B.
A Swiss company then introduced milk solids to the process which gave
us milk chocolate.

C.
They also used them to make a drink called xocoatl.

D.
Until the last century, the chocolate drink was made from solid
blocks of chocolate which had to be melted down in hot water.

E.
When dried they become cacao beans, which can be used to make
chocolate.

F.
Clever advertising which associated it with the healthy qualities of
milk from the English countryside quickly established the bar as a
rival to the more decadent French brands.

G.
As most cacao farmers operate on a very small scale, many were forced

H.
This has forced manufacturers to look for new ways to attract
customers.

I.
In Aztec times the chocolate drink was flavored with spices and used
on ceremonial occasions and for welcoming visitors.

J.
Only at Christmas do people eat more of the cocoa-based foodstuffs.
