Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 28 to 34.
Leisure activity isn’t just for fun, says a University of Florida psychologist who has developed a scale that classifies hobbies and avocations based on needs they satisfy in people. The scale can help people find more personal fulfillment by giving them insight into what they really like.
“The surprising thing is that activities you might think are very different have similar effects on people,” said Howard E.A. Tinsley, a UF psychology professor who developed the measurement. “Probably no one would consider acting to have the same characteristics as roller-skating or playing baseball, but men and women who act as a hobby report feeling an intense sense of belonging to a group, much the same way others do in playing sports.”
And activities providing the strongest sense of competition are not sports, but card, arcade and computer games, he found. Participating in soccer satisfies our desires for a sense of “belonging” and coin collecting and baking fulfill their need for “creativity”. “With so many people in jobs they don’t care for, leisure is a prized aspect of people’s lives,” Tinsley said. “Yet it’s not something psychologists really study. Economists tell us how much money people spend skiing, but nobody explains what it is about skiing that is really appealing to people. Or how one activity relates to another, perhaps in unexpected ways,” Tinsley said. Fishing, generally considered more of an outdoor or recreational activity, for example, is a form of self-expression like quilting or stamp collecting, because it gives people the opportunity to express themselves by doing something completely different from their daily routine, he said.
Question 28: The bold word "insight" as used in the passage mostly means
A. accuracy B. review
C. knowledge D. understanding
Question 29: Which of the following is NOT true?
A. Collecting things satisfies people's desire for making things.
B. Researchers already know why a hobby attracts a person.
C. Fishing allows you to show the type of person you are.
D. Both acting and rotter-skating give people a footing of being a part of a team.
Question 30: According to the passage, outdoor recreational activity is considered as
A. an activity to show their unity in a team
B. a method of satisfying their expectation
C. a chance to show their character
D. a way of showing people's habits
Question 31: Taking part in sports gives you
A. the strongest desire to win
B. a sense of being part of a team
C. the chance to express your feeling
D. a need for creativity
Question 32: The word “it” in the last sentence refers to
A. fishing B. activity
C. self-expression D. stamp collecting
Question 33: Which sentence best summarizes the passage?
A. Leisure activity and sport are totally different.
B. Sports affect a person's personality.
C. Leisure activities satisfy people's particular desires.
D. A person's personality is expressed via his hobbles.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 35 to 42.
Marianne Moore (1887-1972) once said that her writing could be called poetry only because there was no other name for it. Indeed her poems appear to be extremely compressed essays that happen to be printed in jagged lines on the page. Her subjects were varied: animals, laborers, artists, and the craft of poetry. From her general reading came quotations that she found striking or insightful. She included these in her poems, scrupulously enclosed in quotation marks, and sometimes identified in footnotes. Of this practice, she wrote, "Why many quotation marks?" I am asked ... When a thing has been so well that it could not be said better, why paraphrase it? Hence, my writing is, if not a cabinet of fossils, a kind of collection of flies in amber." Close observation and concentration on detail and the methods of her poetry.
Marianne Moore grew up in Kirkwood, Missouri, near St. Lois. After graduation from Bryn Mawr College in 1909, she taught commercial subjects at the Indian School in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Later she became a librarian in New York City. During the 1920’s she was editor of The Dial, an important literary magazine of the period. She lived quietly all her life, mostly in Brooklyn, New York. She spent a lot of time at the Bronx Zoo, fascinated by animals. Her admiration of the Brooklyn Dodgers-before the team moved to Los Angeles-was widely known.
Her first book of poems was published in London in 1921 by a group of friends associated with the Imagist movement. From that time on her poetry has been read with interest by succeeding generations of poets and readers. In 1952 she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for her Collected Poems. She wrote that she did not write poetry for money or fame. To earn a living is needful, but it can be done in routine ways.
