Then, choose the correct answer (A, B, C, or D) to each of the questions from 108 to 110. Write your answer in the numbered box.( 10 pts )

For adults who remain vivaciously childlike in old age, there has to be a sustained enthusiasm for some aspect of life. (11) ……………….. . If they are forcibly retired they should immerse themselves in some new, absorbing activity.
Some people are naturally more physically active than others, and are at a considerable advantage providing their activities are not the result of stress. (12) ……………….. . The more earnest ageing exercisers display a conscious or unconscious anxiety about their health. If they take exercise too seriously it will work against them. Older individuals who take up intensive athletic activity are usually people who fear declining health. Yet it is crucial that physical exercise – as we grow past the young sportsman stage – should be extensive rather than intensive and, above all, fun.
A calm temperament favours longevity. Those who are sharply aggressive, emotionally explosive or naggingly anxious are at a grave disadvantage. (13) ……………….. . Relaxation does not contradict the idea of passionate interest. Indeed, zest for living, eagerness to pursue chosen subjects are vital in long life.
Thinking about the ‘good old days’, complaining about how the world is deteriorating, criticising the younger generations, are sure signs of an early funeral.
Being successful is a great life-stretcher, and can even override such life-shorteners as obesity and fondness for drink. (14) ……………….. . And success must always be measured in personal terms. A hill-shepherd may feel just as successful in his own way as a Nobel Laureate.
Long-lived individuals seem to be more concerned with what they do than who they are. They live outside themselves rather than dwelling on their own personalities.
In personal habits, the long-lived are generally moderate. Extremes of diet are not common. A mixed diet seems to favour longevity. (15) ……………….. . Many long-lived individuals enjoy nicotine and alcohol - in moderation.
Most long-lived people have a sense of self-discipline. (16) ……………….. . The man who lives long because he walks a mile a day does so because he does it every day, as part of an organised existence.
Over and over, during my researches, it emerged that long life goes with a “twinkle in the eye”. (17) ……………….. . The sour-faced puritan and the solemn bore soon begin to lose ground, leaving their more amused contemporaries to enjoy the last laugh.
Finally, nothing is to be gained by a head-in-the-sand avoidance of the facts of life and death. The healthiest solution is to accept that one’s span on Earth is limited and then to live every day, in the present, and to the full.
(Desmond Morris: The Book of Ages)


A. But it is important to make a distinction between calmly relaxed and passively lazy.
B. Puritanical arguments about smoking and drinking have little to support them.
C. People who want a long life with an alert old age should never retire.
D. But, in gaining success, individuals should not overstress themselves.
E. A sense of humour, impishness, a feeling that life is fun, are strong weapons against ageing.
F. Such activities as walking and gardening prolong life spectacularly because they are ‘non-intensive’ forms of all-over bodily movement.
G. That does not imply a harsh military-style masochism but the ordering of life and the imposition of a pattern on the events of the day.

D. Match each of these short articles ( 1- 6 ) with its best headlines ( A – H ) :
Remember that there are 2 headlines left out. ( 10 pts )

THE 6 SHORT ARTICLES :

1/. Filling the gaps in a schedule or timetable: Partner A holds an airline timetable with some of the arrival and departure times missing. Partner B has the same timetable but with different blank spaces. The two partners are not permitted to see each other's timetables and must fill in the blanks by asking each other appropriate questions. The features of language that are practiced would include questions beginning with "when" or "at what time." Answers would be limited mostly to time expressions like "at 8:15" or "at ten in the evening."

2/. In small businesses, bookkeepers and bookkeeping clerks often have responsibility for some or all the accounts, known as the general ledgers or "daybooks." They record all transactions and post debits (costs) and credits (income). They also produce financial statements and prepare reports and summaries for supervisors and managers. Bookkeepers prepare bank deposits by compiling data from cashiers, verifying and balancing receipts, and sending cash, checks, or other forms of payment to the bank. Additionally, they may handle payroll, make purchases, prepare invoices, and keep track of overdue accounts.


3/. Children of all ages should learn the connection between reading and knowledge. If your family is adding a flower bed, have children read about how to prepare a bed and what flowers and shrubs are optimal for the area of the country and whether it is in sun or shade. Getting a new family pet? Read up on varieties of dogs, care required, and even stories about children and their pets first. Traveling somewhere? You guessed it, read all about your destination first and you and your children will have the added benefit of knowing more about the area when you arrive.

4/. Take advantage of weather by hanging the reading bribe in fun ways. Be adventurous and make it a game as to where you should read to your child and how. In warm weather, read next to a pond or lake, under a tree, by the pool, or even in the tree house. Be bold and carefree. One mother reads to her young child in their blow-up children's pool in the backyard during the summer months. Another mom finishes the much-anticipated daily trip to the park in the spring or fall by reading a book before they leave. Cold months can mix reading activities by having books about snowmen, snowfalls, winter holidays, or sports such as ice skating. Day care centers or child providers can add reading fun into the mix by tying it into a planned activity for the week. If the theme for the week is "Under the Sea," then the books can be about the ocean or fish.

5/. Book reviews require special skills and oblige the reviewer with precise responsibilities. The professional reviewer does not just have to read and summarize the text, but to realize concealed, implied meanings. Skilled book reviewers' explanations make the reader feel confident in their perception of the book or introduce new, previously unthought-of concepts. The reviewer must also state the main points of the reviewed book. While some aspects are less meaningful, others have to be marked out as prerogative issues. The task is even more complicated as the writer could unintentionally imply the idea the reviewer of the book can notice. Then, the book reviewer has to decide upon the validity of the author's arguments and evidence. The reviewer has to be the judge and say “did the writer persuade the audience, or were his/her evidences not sufficient and weak.” The reviewer here makes a judgment on the adequacy of the book topic to the content.
6/. Get some distance from the text! It's hard to edit or proofread a paper that you've just finished writing—it's still too familiar, and you tend to skip over a lot of errors. Put the paper aside for a few hours, days, or weeks. Go for a run. Take a trip to the beach. Clear your head of what you've written so you can take a fresh look at the paper and see what is really on the page. Better yet, give the paper to a friend—you can't get much more distance than that. Someone who is reading the paper for the first time, comes to it with completely fresh eyes.
Proofreading is the final stage of the editing process, focusing on surface errors such as misspellings and mistakes in grammar and punctuation. You should proofread only after you have finished all of your other editing revisions.

A. How librarians work with books
B. Build this activity into life's planning
