IV. Arrange these sentences to make a complete passage (10 points).
As they built bigger and bigger ships, they were able to sail further and further away.
They don’t really mean that the world is getting smaller, of course.
They found that as they sailed further away from their home countries, the world became bigger. 
Then men began to use ships to explore the world.
Today there are no undiscovered countries left to put on the map, but there are many new worlds to discover out in space.
But 2,300 years ago the Egyptians and the Greek thought that the world was very small and flat that around it was the ocean. 
We often hear people saying that the world is getting smaller.
So they had to make new maps to show the countries that they found.
And they discovered new countries that they didn’t know about.
What they mean is that with modern means of transport, we can now reach every part of the world very quickly.
C. READING (30 points).
I. Read the passage below and choose the best answer for each question. (5 points)
People have been playing with marbles for thousands of years. The first marbles were probably either river stones that happened to be naturally round enough to roll or, more likely, rounded globs of clay that were baked hardness. Such very old clay marbles have been found in both Greek and Roman ruins, and quartz spheres have been dated at around 6000 B.C. Harder and more durable marbles tend to inspire different kinds of games than soft clay marbles, which crack very easily. So with the advent of hand rounded and polished marbles made of agate or some other rugged, igneous rock, the ‘golden age’ of marbles and marble play flowered. Stone marbles began to appear in the early 1800s in what is now the southern part of Germany. Shortly after, handmade glass marbles appeared in the same part of Europe. For the next 120 years, marbles and marble playing-there were literally hundreds of games - flourished in both Europe and America. Marble players developed their own vocabulary for different sizes and materials of marbles, as well as for the many kinds of games to be played and the way marbles were used in the games. For example, if you were going to play a game of Ring-Taw, one of the most popular and enduring marbles games, you would lag for the first shot, and then knuckle down from the baulk, trying your best to get a mib or two with your opponent’s immie.
