The problem of over population in Indonesia is made worse by the fact that fifty percent of all Indonesians are
below the age of eighteen years. Most of them are dependents. They do not earn money to support themselves
and are in need of many facilities like food, medical care, clothing, education, and employment opportunities.
Although a large number of them are forced to drop out of school to earn a living, the government. still has to
spent a very large part of its revenue on education. Then comes the problem of creating enough jobs for every
new generation of school leavers or college graduates.
Although the problem of overcrowded cities is difficult to solve, there is a solution to the problem of people living
in overcrowded areas of the countryside. The solution is internal migration. This means moving poor people
from the countryside to different but underdeveloped parts of Indonesia, where they may work to build a new

In 1900 we began to unlock the mysteries of the atom: Max Planck launched quantum physics by discovering
that atoms emit bursts of radiation in packets. Also the mysteries of the mind: Sigmund Freud published The
Interpretation of Dreams that year. Marconi was preparing to send radio signals across the Atlantic, the Wright
Brothers went to Kitty Hawk to work on their gliders, and an unpromising student named Albert Einstein finally
graduated, after some difficulty, from college that year. So much for the boneheaded prediction made the
year before by Charles Duell, director of the U.S. Patent Office: “Everything that can be invented has been
So many fields of science made such great progress that each could produce its own contender for Person of
Let’s start with medicine. In 1928 the young Scottish researcher Alexander Fleming sloppily left a lab dish growing
bacteria on a bench when he went on vacation. It got contaminated with a Penicillium mold spore, and when he
returned, he noticed that the mold seemed to stop the growth of the germs. His serendipitous discovery would
eventually save more lives than were lost in all the century’s wars combined. Fleming serves well as a symbol
of all the great medical researchers, such as Jonas Salk and David Ho, who fought disease. But he personally
did little, after his initial eureka! moment, to develop penicillin. Nor has the fight against infectious diseases been
so successful that it will stand as a defining achievement of the century.

A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a system used to gather data and incorporate it in order to store,
scrutinize, distribute, and show geographic information. GIS data displays actual world features such as elevations,
terrain, and transportation networks, in a digital format. Users can take the information for such purposes as
analyzing the digitally displayed data, mapping the data, and editing the data. A GIS will include application
software for aerial photography, surveying land, extensive geographical mapping, remote sensing, and much
more. It is often used to study global problems in an effort to find solutions much more quickly.
Recently, Geographic Information Systems have been developed to be used by the public. For instance, Bing
Maps and Google Maps are GIS applications now used by millions of people around the world. Through interactive
web mapping, the public now has access to large volumes of geographical information. Another important use of
GIS is its use when studying climate change. For example, GIS is used to study the ice melting in the Arctic.

The following text is for questions 32 to 34
I admit it: I’m a bit of a germophobe. And when cold and flu season comes around, I’m even more conscientious
about avoiding germ hot spots. I push elevator buttons and open doors with my elbow instead of my hand and
thoroughly drying my hands after washing them because germs love moisture and live longer on damp hands.
I’m convinced that’s why I don’t get sick very often, but when I do think I’m coming down with something, I
wash my hands more often so I don’t spread a bug inadvertently to those around me, and I try not to take it to
the office. I tell all my college to do the same: If you’re sick, stay home! It does your body, and your coworkers’
bodies, a world of good!
But I know that can be easier said than done, especially when you’re on deadline or worried about job security.
Plus, how can you tell if you are contagious, or whether going back to work will ultimately put you of commission
32. According to the text, where the germs can live longer?
A. under the doors D. on wet place
B. on elevator buttons E. on hand

A. the writer got cold and flu
B. the writer pulled the door using her elbow
C. the writer washing hands more often
D. how the writer avoiding germs
E. the writer don’t get sick very often
34. What the writer do if she get sick?

Sultan Qaboos bin Sa’id al Sa’id, the 14th descendant of the Al Bu Sa’idi dynasty, is a socially and politically
active monarch, reigning for more than 40 years since he ascended to power in 1970. He has revolutionized
and modernized Oman, transforming it from a poor, isolationist nation into a land closely-linked with the African
continent and devoted to economic development, regional stability, and religious tolerance.
The Sultan has raised the Omani standard of living by building up Oman’s school system, healthcare, infrastructure,
and economy. He cites political participation as one of his major long-term goals. Within the last two decades,
he has introduced political reforms including a bicameral representative body, a basic law, universal suffrage,
and a Supreme Court. Moreover, despite Oman’s relative lack of oil and gas compared to other Gulf States,
the Sultan has invested his country’s wealth so wisely that all citizens are guaranteed free education until PhDs
(should they qualify); free healthcare; free land; soft loans for building homes; jobs and social security for the
disabled, orphans and widows. Furthermore, unlike neighboring countries, Oman has resolved all its border
demarcation issues with all its neighbors, has no foreign debt and has a Sovereign Wealth Reserve Fund of
over 30 billion Riyals (about $100 billion). Oman is thus arguably the best administrated country in the Islamic
world, if not in the whole world..

The following text is for questions 39 to 42
In a century that will be remembered foremost for its science and technology--in particular for our ability to
understand and then harness the forces of the atom and the universe--one person stands out as both the greatest
mind and paramount icon of our age: the kindly, absentminded professor whose wild halo of hair, piercing eyes,
engaging humanity and extraordinary brilliance made his face a symbol and his name a synonym for genius:
Slow in learning to talk as a child, expelled by one headmaster and proclaimed by another unlikely to amount to
anything, Einstein has become the patron saint of distracted school kids. But even at age five, he later recalled,
he was puzzling over a toy compass and the mysteries of nature’s forces.
During his spare time as a young technical officer in a Swiss patent office in 1905, he produced three papers
that changed science forever. The first, for which he was later to win the Nobel Prize, described how light could
behave not only like a wave but also like a stream of particles, called quanta or photons. This wave-particle
duality became the foundation of what is known as quantum physics. It also provided theoretical underpinnings
for such 20th century advances as television, lasers and semiconductors.
The second paper confirmed the existence of molecules and atoms by statistically showing how their random
collisions explained the jerky motion of tiny particles in water. Important as both these were, it was his third
paper that truly upended the universe.
It was based, like much of Einstein’s work, on a thought experiment: if you could travel at the speed of light,
what would a light wave look like? If you were in a train that neared the speed of light, would you perceive time
and space differently?
Einstein’s conclusions became known as the special theory of relativity. No matter how fast one is moving toward
or away from a source of light, the speed of that light beam will appear the same, a constant 186,000 miles per
second. But space and time will appear relative. As a train accelerates to near the speed of light, time on the
train will slow down from the perspective of a stationary observer, and the train will get shorter and heavier.
O.K., it’s not obvious, but that’s why we’re no Einstein and he was.
Einstein went on to show that energy and matter were merely different faces of the same thing, their relationship
described by the most famous equation in all of physics: energy equals mass multiplied by the speed of light
39. The text is about….
A. theory of relativity
B. three papers that changed science forever
C. Albert Einstein
D. the Nobel Prize winner

Answer questions 43 to 46 based on the following text.
But why go to the trouble of saving species and ecosystems? Countless species became extinct before humans
evolved into the dominant form of life on Earth. Habitats and ecosystems changed dramatically. Indeed, several
mass extinctions have taken place during the Earth’s history One estimate is that on average, before the advent
of the human era, an ordinary century saw 25 species die off; meanwhile, new species appeared. Why should
things be different now?
Plants provide oxygen, which we breathe, and they also help renew air tainted by industrial development. Plants
and animals provide us with food and with fibers for clothing. One might object that species used by human beings
for food and clothing are in no danger of extinction. In fact, their widespread cultivation in carefully controlled
monocultures—areas such as farms where only one species is allowed to flourish—has pushed many other
plant species to the very brink of extinction. Only 20 plant species provide the vast majority of the world’s food.
Of those, just four—wheat, rice, corn, and potatoes—feed more people than the next 26 crops combined.
Another reason to preserve the world’s biodiversity is the vast potential for new medicines that can be formulated
from compounds in plants. A recent example in the United States was the discovery that taxol, extracted from
the Pacific yew tree, is effective in treating breast and ovarian cancer. The rosy periwinkle, an unprepossessing
plant that originated in Madagascar, yields two substances, vinblastine and vincristine, that are useful in treating
Hodgkin’s disease and acute lymphocytic leukemia. The medicinal properties of plants are largely untapped;
only about 5 percent of the estimated 250,000 species of trees, shrubs, and other plants have been studied for
Adapted from: Microsoft ® Encarta ® 2009

A. 5 percent of trees are potential for medicine
B. Plants provide oxygen
C. Plants have no used for human being
D. 20 plant species provide the vast majority of the world’s food
E. species used by human beings for food are in no danger of extinction
44. What is the difference between paragraphs two and three?
A. Both paragraphs talk about the preservation of world’s biodiversity
B. Both paragraphs tell how to protect endangered species
C. It is necessary to to save species and ecosystems
D. The idea stated in paragraph three is contrary to that stated in paragraph two
E. Paragraph two talks about plants as source of oxygen, food and fiber and paragraph three talks about
potential for new medicines from biodiversity.
45. Which of the following is endangered animal?
A. Rafflesia arnoldii D. rat

The following text is for questions 47 to 50
In today’s press conference ahead of Saturday’s clash against Lazio, Mourinho responded to the comments
made in recent days by AC Milan, who claimed that the gap at the top would be smaller if it hadn’t been for
Adriano’s goal in the derby, and their midfielder Massimo Ambrosini, who said that Mourinho will live to regret
saying that the Rossoneri will end the season with ‘zero titles’.
“I think it’s right to talk about a goal that some people think is dubious, but we should also talk about how many
points have been won with irregular penalties,” pointed out Mourinho. “But I prefer not to talk about it because if
I do, I will have to talk about many many other things, and it’s not worth it. In a championship with human errors,
the best always wins. We just have to wait a while longer, but there’s not long to go.”
“I have no regrets. I’m man enough to apologise to Milan if, at the end of the season, I’m wrong,” said the Inter
coach about his ‘zero titles’ taunt. “I remember Ambrosini insulting ten million Inter fans when he celebrated the
Champions League victory. Many years have passed and I have never seen him apologise. He’s a charismatic
player who has captained a great club like Milan, but I have never heard him apologise to the Inter fans, many
of whom live in his same city.”
