    Are you familiar with the belief about broken mirrors? If you break one, you are supposed to have seven years of bad luck or ill health. This belief is about two thousands years old. The early Romans were the first to have this notion. They thought that a person’s health changed in cycles of seven years. They believed that mirrors reflected one’s health.

    Development is essential. Unless there is growth and development, the standard of living cannot rise. It is ridiculous to expect people with a high standard of living to suddenly stop buying luxury items and driving cars. No one wants environmental disaster, but equally no one wants to go back to the Dark Ages. Providing that development is controlled, it can do no harm. Without economic growth we would still be living in mud huts.

    E)is necessary for the high standard of living

    46)One can infer from the paragraph that........
    A)no one ever goes back to the Dark Ages
    B)development is controlled in order to harm environment less
    C)environment was better during the dark ages
    D) economic growth must develop gradually
    E) everything has been based on development

    47)Unless there is an economic growth ........
    A)you are bound to live in the darkness
    B)we are bound to live in primitive houses
    C)development must be parallel to the age during this process
    D)It is ridiculous to expect people to live peacefully
    E)nobody can suddenly stop buying luxury items and driving cars

    Some people do not like children in cinemas because they might make a lot of noise. If the film interests the children they make very good audiences and often forget that the events they are seeing are not real. Once the audience was in complete silence, watching a scene in which a girl was about to miss a train. Suddenly they heard a child shouting.’Oh, please do be quick or you will miss the train!’ Then everyone in the cinema started to laugh.

    48.Children are not wanted in the cinema
    because ..........
    A)they are frightened of the dark
    B)they always make good audiences
    C)sometimes they do not keep quiet.

    C)get so excited that they usually miss the train
    D)sometimes take for real what they see in a film
    E)should be said to be quiet in the cinema.

    50.The audience laughed when the child ...........

    A)missed the train
    B)tried to stop the train
    C)shouted to the girl in the film
    D)started to cry

    Hey fortik...Right from the start, I see mistakes for which I recommend you to use a quite valuable resource when it comes to the use of prepositions like the dictionary on Collocations. You can easily find it in the web (e.g. first one goes "answer to the questions" not for)

    I checked the first 15 questions for you, and recommended the grammar structure that you need to brush up on. These questions test basic grammar and note that if this had been a 15pt test, you would have hardly passed it with a grade of 8/15, so get on your toes with grammar

    1 a B review prepositions
    2 b A review the use of determined articles
    3 e
    4 e
    5 d
    6 b
    7 a C review simple present vs present continuous and when linking verbs (appears)cannot be used in present participle (ing)
    8 a C review the structure of superlative adjectives and when 'the' is required
    9 b
    10 e
    11 a C asked=pedir / demand=exigir
    12 d
    13 a B review the use of past perfect which is the 'past of the past'
    14 b
    15 e A review the use of modal verbs and modal expressions

    Let me know if you still need the rest or if you already took the exam.
