Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct 
answer to each of the questions. 
Long before they can actually speak, babies pay special attention to the speech they hear around them. Within the 
first month of their lives, babies' responses to the sound of the human voice will be different from their responses to 
other sorts of auditory stimuli. They will stop crying when they hear a person talking, but not if they hear a bell or the 
sound of a rattle. At first, the sounds that an infant notices might be only those words that receive the heaviest 
emphasis and that often occur at the ends of utterances. By the time they are six or seven weeks old, babies can detect 
the difference between syllables pronounced with rising and falling inflections. Very soon, these differences in adult 
stress and intonation can influence babies' emotional states and behavior. Long before they develop actual language 
comprehension, babies can sense when an adult is playful or angry, attempting to initiate or terminate new behavior, 
and so on, merely on the basis of cues such as the rate, volume, and melody of adult speech. 
Adults make it as easy as they can for babies to pick up a language by exaggerating such cues. One researcher 
observed babies and their mothers in six diverse cultures and found that, in all six languages, the mothers used 
simplified syntax, short utterances and nonsense sounds, and transformed certain sounds into baby talk. Other 
investigators have noted that when mothers talk to babies who are only a few months old, they exaggerate the pitch, 
loudness, and intensity of their words. They also exaggerate their facial expressions, hold vowels longer, and 
emphasize certain words. 
Babies obviously derive pleasure from sound input, too: even as young as nine months they will listen to songs or 
stories, although the words themselves are beyond their understanding. For babies, language is a sensory-motor 
delight rather than the route to prosaic meaning that it often is for adults.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct 
answer to each of the questions. 
Icebergs are among nature’s most spectacular creations, and yet most people have never seen one. A vague 
air of mystery envelops them. They come into being somewhere-in faraway, frigid waters, amid thunderous 
noise and splashing turbulence, which in most cases no one hears or sees. They exist only a short time and 
then slowly waste away just as unnoticed. 
Objects of sheerest beauty, they have been called. Appearing in an endless variety of shapes they may be 
dazzlingly white, or they may be glassy blue, green. or purple, tinted faintly or in darker hues. They are 
graceful, stately, inspiring-in calm, sunlit seas. 
But they are also called frightening and dangerous, and that they are in the night, in the fog, and in storms. 
Even in clear weather one is wise to stay a safe distance away from them. Most of their bulk is hidden below 
the water, so their underwater parts may extend out far beyond the visible top. Also, they may roll over 
unexpectedly, churning the waters around them. 
Icebergs are parts of glaciers that break off, drift into the water, float about awhile, and finally melt. 
Icebergs afloat today are made of snowflakes that have fallen over long ages of time. They embody snows that 
drifted down hundreds, or many thousands, or in some cases maybe a million years ago. The snows fell in 
polar regions and on cold mountains, where they melted only a little or not at all, and so collected to great 
depths over the years and centuries. 
As each year’s snow accumulation lay on the surface, evaporation and melting caused the snowflakes 
slowly to lose their feathery points and become tiny grains of ice. When new snow fell on top of the old, it too 
turned to icy grains. So blankets of snow and ice grains mounted layer upon layer and were of such great 
thickness that the weight of the upper layers compressed the lower ones. With time and pressure from above, 
the many small ice grains joined and changed to larger crystals, and eventually the deeper crystals merged 
into a solid mass of ice. 
 (Adapted from TOEFL Reading Comprehension, Vol. 5)
