But fewer people know much about King\'s childhood. M.L., as he was called, was born in 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia, at the home of his maternal grandfather. M.L.\'s grandfather, the Reverend A.D. Williams, purchased their home on Auburn Avenue in 1909, twenty years before M.L. was born. The Reverend Williams, an eloquent speaker, played an important role in the community since so many people\'s lives centered around the church. He allowed his church and his home to be used as meeting place for number of organizations dedicated to the education and social advancement of blacks. M.L. grew up in this atmosphere, with his home being used as community gathering place, and was no doubt influenced by it. M.L.\'s childhood was not especially eventful. His father was minister and his mother was musician. He was the second of three children, and he attended all- black schools in black neighborhood. The neighborhood was not poor, however. Auburn Avenue was the main artery through prosperous neighborhood that had come to symbolize achievement for Atlanta\'s black people. It was an area of banks, insurance companies, builders, jewelers, tailors, doctors, lawyers, and other black-owned or black-operated businesses and services. Even in the face of Atlanta\'s segregation, the district thrived. Dr. King never forgot the community spirit he had known as child, nor did he forget the racial prejudice that was seemingly insurmountable barrier that kept black Atlantans from mingling with whites.

Many flowering plants woo insect pollinators and gently direct them to their most fertile blossoms by changing the color of individual flowers from day to day. Through color cues, the plant signals to the insect that it would be better off visiting one flower on its bush than another. The particular hue tells the pollinator that the flower is full of far more pollen than are neighboring blooms. That nectar-rich flower also happens to be fertile and ready to disperse its pollen or to receive pollen the insect has picked up from another flower. Plants do not have to spend precious resources maintaining reservoirs of nectar in all their flowers. Thus, the color-coded communication system benefits both plants and insects. For example, on the lantana plant, flower starts out on the first day as yellow, when it is rich with pollen and nectar. Influenced by an as-yet-unidentified environmental signal, the flower changes color by triggering the production of the pigment anthromyacin. It turns orange on the second day and red on the third. By the third day, it has no pollen to offer insects and is no longer fertile. On any given lantana bush, only 10 to 15 per cent of the blossoms are likely to be yellow and fertile. But in tests measuring the responsiveness of butterflies, it was discovered that the insects visited the yellow flowers at least 100 times more than would be expected from haphazard visitation. Experiments with paper flowers and painted flowers demonstrated that the butterflies were responding to color cues rather than, say, the scent of the nectar. In other types of plants, blossoms change from white to red, others from yellow to red, and so on. These color changes have been observed in some 74 families of plants. Question 45: The first paragraph of the passage implies that insects benefit from the color-coded communication system because_______ A. the colors hide them from predators. B. other insect species can not understand the code. C. the bright colors attract fertile females D. they can gather pollen efficiently. Question 46: The word “woo” is closest in meaning to_______ A. deceive B. attract C. frighten D. trap Question 47: The word “it” refers to_______ A. blossom B. an insect C. signal D. plant Question 48: The word “hue” is closet in meaning to_______ A. smell B. texture C. color D. shape Question 49: Which of the following describes the sequence of color changes that lantana blossom undergo? A. Yellow to orange to red B. Red to yellow to white C. Red to purple D. White to red Question 50: The word “triggering” is closest in meaning to_________ A. maintaining B. limiting C. activating D. renewing Question 51: The passage implies that insects would be most attracted to lantana blossoms_______ A. on the first day that they bloom B. on the third day that they bloom C. after they produce anthromyacin D. when they turn orange Question 52: According to the passage, what is the purpose of the experiments involving paper flowers and painted flowers? A. To prove that flowers do not always need pollen to reproduce. B. To demonstrate how insects change color depending on the type of flowers they visit. C. To support the idea that insects respond to the changing color of flowers. D. To strengthen the idea that butterflies are attracted by the smell of flowers. Question 53: The word “haphazard” is closest in meaning to which of the following? A. Dangerous B. Random C. Fortunate D. Expected Question 54: What is known from the passage about the other types of plants? A. They have not been studied as thoroughly as the lantana. B. They have exactly the same pigments as the lantana. C. They follow various sequences of color changes. D. They use scent and other methods of attracting pollinators.246 2014-2015 Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, or on your answer sheet to indicate the correct word or phrase for each of the blanks from 55 to 64.
