As much artefact as document, the Rosetta Stone is a slab of black basalt that bears an inscribed text in ancient Greek and in two forms of old Egyptian writing: formal hieroglyphics (as seen on royal tomb walls) and the more common demotic script. In 1799, during Napoleon’s occupation of Egypt, some of his soldiers found this rock on the Rosetta fork of the Nile River near Alexandria. The stone was carved about 2,000 years earlier, in 196 BCE. When the French soldiers recovered the stone, nobody knew how to read hieroglyphics. The Ancient Egyptian history seemed lost forever until scholars Thomas Young and Jean Francois Champollion worked long and hard to decipher the Rosetta Stone, establishing that the three texts all said the same thing in different languages. Using his knowledge of ancient Greek, Champollion was able to announce in 1822 that he could read hieroglyphics. The Rosetta Stone provided an entryway into the remote Egyptian past.

Mammals have spread successfully over the entire world, and have even conquered extreme habitats such as deserts and the Arctic. In spite of all external diversities, they have numerous characteristics in common. Mammals are the most highly developed vertebrate animals. Their constant body temperature grants them a life largely independent of temperatures of the surrounding areas. They achieve constant body temperature by a high food intake ─ in comparison to reptiles, for example ─ and an increased rate of metabolism. Long respiration, typical of mammals, supplies the body cells efficiently with oxygen. The heart consists of two atria and two ventricles, which are completely separated from each other. This prevents the mixing of oxygen-rich and oxygen-deficient blood. All mammals, except for the egg-laying monotremes, give birth to live young. During pregnancy, the foetus is linked to the circulatory system of the female and is supplied with nutrients via the placenta and umbilical cord. The exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide also takes place using this route.

Many people want to improve their thinking skills and prevent mental decline. Puzzles are a popular choice for mental training, but somewhat lacking. The problem with things like crosswords and sudoku is that they are not very varied. It is like going to the gym and using only one machine: your biceps might become strong, but you will not be properly fit. Instead, you need something more like circuit training or parkour. That is why one of your best options is to learn a foreign language. This will provide a mental workout including many different skills, from challenging your perceptions to learning grammatical rules. If you speak to others, you get the bonus of social interaction too. Studies also indicate that people who are trying to learn a foreign language have improved executive function – the ability to plan, organise and complete tasks – although these results have recently been disputed. There is also evidence that bilinguals develop dementia four years later, on average, than people who are monolingual, and that they recover faster if they have had a stroke.

15) According to the passage, puzzles ----.

16) Which could be inferred from the passage about language learning?

17) What is the primary purpose of the author?

It is easy to become fatalistic about environmental problems since the destruction of the natural world continues at high speed. Many people actively avoid environmental news because it makes them feel hopeless, but there is no reason to despair. A recent analysis suggests that while the loss of biodiversity is undoubtedly serious, it is far from unstoppable. If we make the right choices now, we can stop the decrease by 2100. What would it take? A major step to take is to occupy less space by producing more food from smaller patches of land and using current technologies such as genetic modification. In today’s world, such solutions may seem very simple and idealistic, but the other option, fatalism, is simply a guarantee of failure. In fact, we still have the chance to save the majority of biodiversity without making huge sacrifices. People who care about the natural world have every reason to keep on fighting.

18) It can be understood from the passage that a lot of people ----.

19) According to the passage, by 2100, ----.

20) What is the primary purpose of the author?
