Reading Comprehension Test for 9Form

TEXT I

American English spelling differs from British English spelling largely because of one man, American lexicographer Noah Webster. In addition to his well-known American Dictionary of the English Language, Webster published The American Spelling Book (1783, with many subsequent editions), which became one of the most widely used schoolbooks in American history. Webster's books sought to standardize spelling in the United States by promoting the use of an American lan­guage that intentionally differed from British English. The development of a specifically American variety of English mirrored the new country's separate political development. Webster's most suc­cessful changes were spellings with or instead of our (honor, labor for the British honour, labour); with er instead of re (center, theater for the British centre, theatre); with an s instead of а с (de­fense, license for the British defence, licence); with a final ck instead of que (check, mask for the British cheque, masque); and without a final к (traffic, public, now also used in British English, for the older traffick, publick). Later spelling reform created a few other differences, such as program for British programme. Canadian spelling varies between the British and American forms, more British in eastern Canada and more American in western Canada.

Task 1. Choose the correct variant.

1.The passage mainly discusses:

A Noah Webster's literary heritage;В the varieties of spelling;

С Webster's political preferences;D popular schoolbooks in America.

2. The passage implies that written British and American words:

A look absolutely different;В are absolutely the same;

С may differ;D come from Canada.

3. It may be inferred from the passage that Webster's scientific interest was in:
A standards;В vocabulary;

С editing books;D political reforms.

4. The changes between American and British English were generated:
A on purpose;В by accident;

С in Canada;D by politicians.

5. The word "subsequent" in line 4 may most probably mean the following::
A different;В expensive;

С following;D literary.

6. One can make a conclusion that Webster's changes:
A simplified the language;

В were of no importance;

С made the language more difficult for understanding;

D developed the language used in Great Britain.

7. The word "mirrored" in line 8 is closest in meaning to:

A portrayed;В reflected;

С generated;D prevented.

8.It can be seen from the passage that the changes brought into American English must have:
A developed a completely new language;В stopped using dictionaries;

С required spelling books;D influenced the original British English.

9. The passage states that in Canada:

A people use the only variety of the English language;

В people live only in the east and the west of the country;

С there may be language misunderstanding between people from different regions of the

country; D people use different grammar rules compared to the US.

10.The passage implies that of the two books mentioned in it:
A neither was published;

В both were printed at the same time;

С the Spelling Book was published before the Dictionary;

D the Dictionary was published before the Spelling Book.

TEXT II

Ambient divers, unlike divers who go underwater in submersible vehicles or pressure resist­ant suits, are exposed to the pressure and temperature of the surrounding (ambient) water. Of all types of diving, the oldest and simplest is free diving. Free divers may use no equipment at all, but most use a face mask, foot fins, and a snorkel. Under the surface, free divers must hold their breath. Most free divers can only descend 30 to 40 feet, but some skilled divers can go as deep as 100 feet.

SCUBA diving provides greater range than free diving. The word SCUBA stands for Self-Con­tained Underwater Breathing Apparatus. SCUBA divers wear metal tanks with compressed air or other breathing gases. When using open circuit equipment, a SCUBA diver simply breathes air from the tank through a hose and releases the exhaled air into the water. A closed-circuit breathing de­vice, also called a rebreather, filters out carbon dioxide and other harmful gases and automatically adds oxygen. This enables the diver to breathe the same air over and over.

In surface supplied diving, divers wear helmets and waterproof canvas suits. Today, sophisti­cated plastic helmets have replaced the heavy copper helmets used in the past. These divers get their air from a hose connected to compressors on a boat. Surface supplied divers can go deeper than any other type of ambient diver.

Task 2. Choose the correct variant.

11.The passage mainly discusses:

A going underwater in submersible vehicles;В free diving;

С surface supplied diving;D various types of diving.

12.The passage implies that the oldest type of diving is called:

A ambient diving;В SCUBA diving;

С free diving;D pearl diving.

13.It may be inferred from the passage that all divers:

A use no equipment at all;В use sophisticated equipment;

С submerge;D surface.

14.According to the text most free divers use:
A a snorkel, a face mask and hand fins;

В a face mask, foot fins, and a snorkel;

С a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus;

D a snorkel, back fins and helmet.

15.The word "ambient" in line one may most probably mean the following:
A underwater;В encompassing;

С resistant;D submersible.

16.One can make a conclusion that most free divers can reach the depth of:
A 10 yards;В 20 yards;

С 30 yards;D 40 yards.

17.While going underwater a SCUBA diver wears:

A a canvas hose;В a plastic helmet;

С rebreathers;D metal tanks.

18.It can be seen from the passage that the rebreather filters out:

A carbon dioxide;В detrimental gases;

С inert gases;D open circuit gases.

19.The passage states that the diver can breathe:

A the same air over and over;В raw oxygen;

С carbon dioxide;.D other harmful gases.

20.The passage implies that in surface supplied diving, divers wear:

A intricate canvas helmets;В sophisticated copper helmets;

С sophisticated plastic helmets;D heavy copper helmets.

TEXT: THE LADY WITH THE PET DOG (ANTON CHEKHOV)

Make sure you know these words:

Sleighs — санчата, frost — мороз, immerse — занурюватися.

At home in Moscow the winter routine was already established; the stoves were heated, and in the morning it was still dark when the children were having breakfast and getting ready for school, and the nurse would light the lamp for a short time. There were frosts already. When the first snow falls, on the first day the sleighs are out, it is pleasant to see the white earth, the white roofs; one draws easy, delicious breaths, and the season brings back the days of one's youth. The old limes and birches, white with frost, have a good-natured look; they are closer to one's heart than cypresses and palms, and near them one no longer wants to think of mountains and the sea.

Gurov, a native of Moscow, arrived there on a fine frosty day, and when he put on his fur coat and warm gloves and took a walk along Perovka, and when on Saturday night he heard the bells ring­ing, his recent trip and the places he had visited lost all charm for him. Little by little he became immersed in Moscow life, greedily read three newspapers a day, and declared that he did not read the Moscow papers on principle. He already felt a longing for restaurants, clubs, formal dinners, anniversary celebrations, and it flattered him to entertain distinguished lawyers and actors, and to play cards with a professor at the physicians' club. He could eat a whole portion of meat stewed with pickled cabbage and served in a pan, Moscow style.
