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 36 to 42.
Since the world became industrialized, the number of animal species that have either
become extinct or have neared extinction has increased. Bengal tigers, for instance, which once
roamed the jungles in vast numbers, now number only about 2,300. By the year 2025, it is
estimated that they will become extinct. What is alarming about the case of the Bengal tiger is
that this extinction will have been caused almost entirely by poachers who, according to some
sources, are not always interested in material gain but in personal gratification. This is an
example of the callousness that is contributing to the problem of extinction. Animals such as
Bengal tiger, as well as other endangered species, are valuable parts of the world’s ecosystem.
International laws protecting these animals must be enacted to ensure their survival and the
survival of our planet.
Countries around the world have begun to deal with the problem in various ways. Some
countries, in an effort to circumvent the problem, have allocated large amounts of land to animal
reserves. They then charge admission fees to help defray the costs of maintaining the parks, and
they must also depend on world organizations for support. This money enables them to invest in
equipment and patrols to protect the animals. Another response to the increase in animal
extinction is an international boycott of products made from endangered species. This has had
some effect, but by itself it will not prevent animals from being hunted and killed.
Question 36: What is the main topic of the passage?
A. endangered species
B. the Bengal tiger
C. international boycott
D. problems with industrialization

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 43 to 50.
Most people think that lions only come from Africa. This is understandable because in fact
most lions do come from there but this has not always been the case. If we went back ten
thousand years, we would find that there were lions roaming vast sections of the globe. However
now, unfortunately only a very small section of the lion's former habitat remains.
Asiatic lions are sub-species of African lions. It is almost a hundred thousand years since
the Asiatic lions split off and developed as a sub-species. At one time the Asiatic lion was living
as far west as Greece and they were found from there, but in a band that spreads east through
various countries of the Middle East, all the way to India. In museums now, you can see Greek
coins that have clear images of the Asiatic lion on them. Most of them are dated at around 500
B.C. However, Europe saw its last Asiatic lions roaming free two thousand years ago. Over the
next nineteen hundred years the numbers of Asiatic lions in the other areas declined steadily, but
it was only in the nineteenth century that they disappeared from everywhere but in India.
The Gir Wildlife Sanctuary in India was established especially to protect the Asiatic lion.
There are now around three hundred Asiatic lions in India and almost all of them are in this
sanctuary. However, despite living in a sanctuary, which makes them safe from hunters, they still
face a number of problems that threaten their survival. One of these is the ever-present danger of
disease. This is what killed more than a third of Africa’s Serengeti lions in 1994, and people are
fearful that something similar could happen in the Gir Sanctuary and kill off many of the Asiatic
lions there.

India's lions are particular vulnerable because they have a limited gene pool. The reason for
