Although they are an inexpensive supplier of vitamins, minerals, and high-quality protein, egg also contain a high level of blood cholesterol, one of the major causes of heart diseases. One egg yolk, in fact, contains a little more than two-thirds of the suggested daily cholesterol limit. This knowledge has driven egg sales to plummet in recent years, which in turn has brought about the development of several alternatives to eating regular eggs. One alternative is to eat substitute eggs. These substitute eggs are not really eggs, but they look somewhat like eggs when they are cooked. They have the advantage of having low cholesterol rates, and they can be scrambled or use in baking. One disadvantage, however, is that they are not good for frying, poaching, or boiling. A second alternative is to regular eggs is a new type of egg, sometimes called “designer” eggs. These eggs are produced by hens that are fed low-flat diets consisting of ingredient such á canola oil, flax, and rice bran. In spite of their diet, however, these hens produce eggs that contain the same amount of cholesterol as regular eggs. Yet, the producers of these eggs claim that eating their eggs will not raise the blood cholesterol in humans.
Egg producers claim that their product has been portrayed unfairly. They cite scientific studies to back up their claim. And, in fact, studies on the relationship between eggs and human cholesterol levels have brought mixed results. It may be that it is not the type of the eggs that is the main determinant of cholesterol but the person who is eating the eggs. Some people may be more sensitive to cholesterol derived from food than other people. In fact, there is evidence that certain dietary fats stimulate the body’s production of blood cholesterol. Consequently, while it still makes sense to limit one’s intake of eggs, even designer eggs, it seem that doing this without regulating dietary fat will probably not help reduce blood cholesterol level.
Question 30: What is the main purpose of the passage?
A. To introduce the idea that dietary at increases the blood cholesterol level
B. To make people know about the relationship between eggs and cholesterol
C. To persuade people that eggs are unhealthy and should not be eaten
D. To convince people to eat “designer” eggs and egg substitutes
Question 31: Which of the following could best replace the word “plummet”?
Question 32: The pronoun this in the passage refers to which of the following?
A. decreasing fat intake
B. increasing blood cholesterol
C. reducing egg intake
D. eating “designer” eggs
Question 33: According to the passage, what has been the cause for changes in the sale of eggs?
A. increasing price
B. decreased production
C. dietary changes in hens
D. concerns about cholesterol
Question 34: According to the passage, egg substitutes cannot be used to make any of the following types of eggs EXCEPT__________.
Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 35 to 42.
The system of higher education had its origin in Europe in the Middle Ages, when the first universities were established. In modern times, the nature of higher education around the world, to some extent, has been determined by the models of influential countries such as France and Germany.
Both France and Germany have systems of higher education that are basically administered by state agencies. Entrance requirements for students are also similar in both countries. In France, an examination called the baccalaureate is given at the end of secondary education. Higher education in France is free and open to all students who have passed this baccalaureate. Success in this examination allows students to continue their higher education for another three or four years until they have attained the first university degree called a license in France.
Basic differences, however, distinguish these two countries’ systems. French educational districts, called académies, are under the direction of a rector, an appointee of the national government who is also in charge of universities in each district. The uniformity in curriculum throughout the country leaves each university with little to distinguish itself. Hence, many students prefer to go to Paris, where there are better accommodations and more cultural amenities for them. Another difference is the existence in France of prestigious higher educational institutions known as grandes écoles, which provide advanced professional and technical training. Most of these schools are not affiliated with the universities, although they too recruit their students by giving competitive examinations to candidates. The grandes écoles provide rigorous training in all branches of applied science and technology, and their diplomas have a somewhat higher standing than the ordinary licence.
In Germany, the regional universities have autonomy in determining their curriculum under the direction of rectors elected from within. Students in Germany change universities according to their interests and the strengths of each university. In fact, it is a custom for students to attend two, three, or even four different universities in the course of their undergraduate studies, and the majority of professors at a particular university may have taught in four or five others. This high degree of mobility means that schemes of study and examination are marked by a freedom and individuality unknown in France.
France and Germany have greatly influenced higher education systems around the world. The French, either through colonial influence or the work of missionaries, introduced many aspects of their system in other countries. The German were the first to stress the importance of universities as research facilities, and they also created a sense of them as emblems of a national mind.
