Read the following passage and answer questions 186 - 190.
Museums must make their collections accessible. In the past, this simply meant packing them into display cases, often with wordy labels that made little concession to the lay person. Nowa- days, accessibility should demand more than this. Displays can be lively and interesting, making the best use of theatrical or architectural techniques to capture the visitor's attention and perhaps stimulate emotional response. But museums should be about more than their displays. They should make their collection accessible to the widest possible community. The provision of loan boxes of objects for class teachers is one known example of this, and recently this principle has been extended by some museums so that similar material is made available for use in treating elderly people who are losing their memory.
Museums concern themselves with 'artifacts and specimens' - not replicas. They exist to facilitate an encounter with authenticity. They present items that actually existed - were used - had meaning - at some historical time. This is a great strength and is what distinguishes them from heritage centres and theme parks, books and C.D. ROMs. Museums which rise to the challenge, which this distinction implies, and provide exciting  and accessible displays, catalogues and outreach programmes, will find that their apparent competitors in 'virtual history' are in fact their allies, stimulating an appetite for the 'real thing' that museums are uniquely placed to satisfy.

Read the following passage and answer questions 191 - 195.
A stamp is, to many people, just a slip of paper that takes a letter from one town or country to another. They can't understand why stamp collectors find so much pleasure in collecting them and how we find time to indulge in our hobby. To them it seems a waste of time, effort and money. But, they do not realise that many find the effort worthwhile and many who, if they did not spend their time collecting stamps, would spend it less profitably.
In our leisure hours what better occupation is there to keep us out of mischief than that of collecting stamps? An album, a packet of hinges, a new supply of stamps, and the time passes swiftly. Stamp-collecting has no limits and a collection never has an end; countries are always issuing new stamps to celebrate coronations, great events, anniversaries and deaths. And the fascination of collecting is in obtaining these stamps before one's rivals. Every sphere of stamp collecting has its fascination - receiving letters from distant countries and discovering old stamps in the leaves of dusty old books.
A stamp itself has a fascination all its own. Gazing at its little picture we are transported to the wilds of Congo, the homes of the Arabs, and the endless tracks of the Sahara desert. There is a history in a stamp. The ancient Roman Empire and the Constitution of America, India's Independence and the Allied Victory, are all conveyed to our mind's eye through stamps. We see famous men - printers, writers, scientists, soldiers, politicians - and famous incidents. Stamps, so small and minute, contain  knowledge that is vast and important.

 

191.    Stamps take us through
    1) albums    2) history
    3) old books    4) dusty books

 

192.    Stamp collection profits one to
    1) kill time
    2) keep out of mischief
    3) get fascinated with pictures
    4) become complacent

 

193.    A stamp has
    1) an inherent fascination
    2) only official value
    3) no fascination at all
    4) no historical value

 

194.    The journey of a stamp is into
    1) the past,
    2) the world of futile fantasy
    3) the world of savagery
    4) the mazes of the future

 

195.    The passage is a contemplation on
1)    stamps and their ignominious history
2)    the usefulness of collecting stamps
3)    the competition in collecting stamps
4)    stamp vendors
Read the following passage and answer questions 196 - 200.
How do you understand multiple intelligences? In 1983, Howard Gardner, a Harvard University Professor, developed a theory called Multiple Intelligences. In his book Frames of Mind, he outlines  seven intelligences that he feels are possessed by everyone: visual/spatial, verbal/linguistic musical/ rhythm, logic/math, body/ kinesthetic," interpersonal and  intrapersonal.
In 1996, he added an eighth intelligence: naturalistic. In short, if you have ever done things that come easily for you, you are probably drawing on one of your intelligences that is well developed. On the other hand, if you have tried to do things that are very difficult to master or understand, you may be dealing with material that calls on one of your less developed intelligences.
If playing the Piano by ear comes easily to you, your musical/rhythm intelligence may" be very strong. If you have trouble writing or understanding poetry, your verbal/ linguistic intelligence may not be as well  developed. This does not mean that you will never be able to write poetry: it simply means that you have not fully developed your skills in this area.
