Although they are expensive suppliers of vitamins, minerals, and high-quality protein, eggs also contain a high level of blood cholesterol, one of the major causes of heart disease. One egg yolk, in fact, contains a little more than two-thirds of the suggested daily cholesterol limit. This knowledge has caused egg sales to plummet in recent years, which in turn has brought about the development of several alternatives to eating regular eggs. One alternative is to eat substitute eggs. These substitute eggs are not real eggs, but they look somewhat like eggs when they are cooked. They have the advantage of having lower cholesterol rates, and they can be scrambled or used in baking. One disadvantage, however, is that they are not good for frying, poaching, or boiling. A second alternative to regular eggs is a new type of egg, sometimes called ‘designer’ eggs. These eggs are produced by hens that are fed low-fat diets consisting of ingredients such as canola oil, flax, and rice bran. In spite of their diets, however, these hens produce eggs that contain the same amount of cholesterol as regular eggs. Yet, the producers of these eggs claim that eating their eggs will not raise the blood cholesterol in humans.
Egg producers claim that their product has been portrayed unfairly. They cite scientific studies to back up their claim. And, in fact, studies on the relationship between eggs and human cholesterol levels have brought mixed results. It may be that it is not the type of egg that is the main determinant of cholesterol but the person who is eating the eggs. Some people may be more sensitive to cholesterol derived from food than other people. In fact, there is evidence that certain dietary fats stimulate the body’s production of blood cholesterol. Consequently, while it still makes sense to limit one’s intake of eggs, even designer eggs, it seems that doing this without regulating dietary fat will probably not help reduce the blood cholesterol level.
Question 28. What is the main purpose of this passage?
A. to inform people about the relationship between eggs and cholesterol.
B. to convince people to eat ‘designer’ eggs and egg substitutes.
C. to persuade people that eggs are unhealthy and should not be eaten.
D. to introduce the idea that dietary fat increases the blood cholesterol.
Question 29. Which lines of the passage best explain why egg producers have introduced egg substitutes?
A. lines 1-4 B. lines 5-6 C. lines 13-15 D. lines 18 and 19
Question 30. According to the passage, which of the following is a cause of heart disease?
A. minerals B. cholesterol C. vitamins D. canola oil
Question 31. According to the passage, what has been the cause for changes in the sale of eggs?
A. dietary changes in hens B. decreased production
C. increasing price D. concerns about cholesterol
Question 32. According to the passage, one egg yolk contains approximately what fraction of the suggested daily limit for human consumption of cholesterol?
A. 1/3 B. 1/2 C. 2/3 D. 3/4
Question 33. What does the author mean by the phrase ‘mixed results’?
A. The results are blended B. The results are inconclusive
C. The results are a composite of things D. The results are mingled together
Question 34. According to the passage, which of the following may reduce blood cholesterol?
A. reducing egg intake but not fat intake. B. increasing egg intake and fat intake
C. increasing egg intake and not fat intake D. decreasing egg intake and fat intake

Over the past 600 years, English has grown from a language of few speakers to become the dominant language of international communication. English as we know it today emerged around 1350, after having incorporated many elements of French that were introduced following the Norman invasion of 1066. Until the 1600s, English was, for the most part, spoken only in England and had not extended even as far as Wales, Scotland, or Ireland. However, during the course of the next two centuries, English began to spread around the globe as a result of exploration, trade (including slave trade), colonization, and missionary work. Thus, small enclaves of English speakers became established and grew in various parts of the world. As these communities proliferated, English gradually became the primary language of international business, banking, and diplomacy.
Currently, about 80 percent of the information stored on computer systems worldwide is in English. Two-third of the world’s writing is in English, and English is the main language of technology, advertising, media, international airports, and air traffic controllers.
