III/ Read the passage carefully then choose the best answer: 5 points
Strange things happen to time when you travel, because the earth is divided into twenty- four tine zones, one hour a part. You can have days with more or fewer than twenty- four hours, and weeks with more or fewer than seven days.
If you make a five-day trip across the Atlantic Ocean, your ship enters a different time zone every day. As you enter each zone, the time changes one hour. Traveling west, you set your clock back; traveling east, you set it ahead. Each day of your trip has either twenty five or twenty- three hours.

IV/ Read the passage carefully then choose the best answer to the questions below: 5 points
Let us begin by saying what does not cause our dreams. Our dreams do not come from another world. They are not messages from some outside source. They are not a look into the future, either.
All our dreams have something to do with our emotions, fears, longings, wishes, needs and memories. But something on the ‘outside’ may affect what we dream if a person is hungry, or tired, or cold, his dreams may include a feeling of this kind. If the covers on your body such as a quilt or a blanket, have slipped off your bed, you may dream that you are sleeping or resting on the ice and snow. The material for the dream you will have tonight is likely to come from the experiences you have today.
So the subject of your dream usually comes from something that has effect on you while you are sleeping (feeling of cold, a noise, a discomfort, etc.) and it may also use your past experiences and the wishes and interests you have now. This is why very young children are likely to dream of fairies, older children of school examinations, hungry people of food, homesick soldiers of their families, and prisoners of freedom.
To show you how that is happening while you are asleep and how your wishes or needs can all be joined together in a dream, here is the story of an experiment. A man was asleep and the back of his hand was rubbed with a piece of absorbent cotton. He would dream that he was in a hospital and his charming girl friend was visiting him, sitting on the bed and feeling gently his hand!
There are some scientists who have made a special study of why we dream, what we dream and what those dreams mean. Their explanation of dreams though a bit reasonable, is not accepted by everyone, but it offers an interesting approach to the problem. They believe that dreams are mostly expressions of wishes that did not come true. In other words a dream is a way of having your wishes carried out.
1. Our dreams.
A. are simply messages from another world	
B. are a curious look into the future

2 If the covers have slipped off your bed, you may dream that
A. something comfortable happens to you.	
B. you are staying in freezing surroundings
C. some people are making noise	
D. you have nothing on at all
3 When the back of a man’s hand was rubbed with a piece of absorbent cotton in the experiment, he would dream that .
A. his hand was being struck by someone	
B. his hand was gently touched by his sweetheart
C. his hand was badly hurt by something	
D. somebody was wiping sweat off his body
4 When a person feels hungry, he is likely to dream of .
A. wonderful fairies 	
B. lovely young girls
C. his family members	
D. fine food and drinks 
5 Some scientists' explanation of dreams .
A. offers a meaningful approach to the problem	
B. gives us an exact answer to the problem

D. is widely accepted and thought highly of by the public
