In modern times, it was perhaps the "gentleman scientists" of the 19. century who came closest to a genuinely objective form of scientific resarch. These privilleged amateurs enjoyed a financial independence which most scientists today cannot have, which enabled them to satisfy their scientific curiosily without the need to please patrons. With the growth the scientific research after World War II, science has become an expensive occupation. Many scientists today look back upon the 1960s as a golden age of modern-day science, when research was mainly funded by the taxpayer, and scientific enquiry was seen by goverments to be part of the public good, and worth paying for. Today, the situation is very different. "Academic freedom" is now often a little more than an illusion for most scientist working at universities or in publicy-funded research institutes. Moreaover, science is how largely dominated by the interest of the industrial world, and hencehardly deserve the name "science"

b-scientist believed that they were entering upon a golden age
c-academic feedom was already a thing of the past
d-scientist carried out their research activities at the public expense
e-scientific research largely concentrated on meeting the needs of war

b-find its best millieu within the universities
c-is advancing at an incredibly fast rate
d-offers one of tje most exciting and stimulating af careers
e-is far more concerned with theory than with any practical application

Some people believe that meat consumption contributes to famine and depletes the Earth's natural resorces. Indeed, it is often argued that cows and sheep require pasturage that could be better used to grow grain for starving millions in poor cuntries. Additionally, claims are made that raising livestock requires more water than raising plants foods. But both these argument are illogical. As for the pasturage4 argument, this ignores the fact that a large portion of the Earth's dry land is unsuited to cultivation. For istance, desert and mountainous areas are not suitable for cultivation, but are suitable for animal grazing. However, modern comercial farming methods prefer to raise animals in an enclosed space feeding them on grains and soybeans. Unfortunately, the bulk of commercial livestock is not range-fed but stall-fed. Stall-fed animals do not ingest grasses and shrubs (like they should) but are fed on unnatural array of grains and soybeans, which could be eaten by humans. The argument here, then, is not that eating meat depletes the Earth's resources, but that commercial farming methods do. Such methods subject livestock to deplorable living conditions where infections, antibiotics and synthetic hormones are common. These all lead to an unhealty animals and, byextension, to unhealty food product.
81-One important point made in this passage is that .............................
a-desert and mountainous regions should be developed as arable for cultivation
b-the way livestock is raised on modern farms involves various health hazards
c-more encouragement should be given to the application of modern farming technologies
d-meat production in the developed world needs to be increased to combat famine
e-every measure must be taken to conserve the Earth's natural resources
82-One argument that is clearly opposed in the passage.........................
a-concerns the value of antibiotics in the raising of healty livestock
b-concerns the introduction of soybeans in the basic feed for livestock
c-is related to i the inadequate methods employed in the prevention of famine
d-is that livestock need water as much as plants do
e-is that land used for pasturage should be utulized for the cultivation of crops
83-Contrary to what is often argued, the passage points out that.....................
a-synhetic hormones can be used to improve the quality of meat
b-underdevoloped countries need to adopt modern farming methods in order to overcome famine
c-grazing for sheep and cows needs to be upgraded so as to increase meat production
d-the famine in the world is not directly related to the consumption of meat
e-a very extensive part of the earth's surface is ideally suitable for the cultivation of crops
84-The writers attacks present day commercial farming methods...........................
a-but admits that there is a higher production rate than there was with earlier methods
b-though the end product is extremely healthy
c-and claims that they are responsible for depleting the natural resources of the world
d-though it ensures that there is suffficent food for everyone
e-because among other things, it makes no effort to cultivate dry mountainous regions
85-By the "pasturage argument" is meant the argument that ....................................
a-the land used for animal grazing ought to be cultivated and used to grow grain
b-livestock should be stall-fed on grains and not allowed to graze freely
c-cultivated land ought to be turned into pasturage
d-only cattle that are allowed to graze freely produce good meat
e-dry mountainous areas could be watered and turned into good pasturage

Even though there have been truly significant advances in modern medicine health problems still abound and couse untold misery. Although hearth disease and cancer were rare at the beginning of the 20th century today these two diseases strike with increasing frequency, in spite of billions of dollars in research of combat them, and in spite of tremendous advances in diagnostic and surgical techniques. In America, one person in three suffers from allergies, one in ten has ulcers and one in five is mentally ill.
