When you hear aquestion, read the four possible answers on your paper and decide which onewould be the best answer to the question you have heard.
Questions 11 through 13 are based on the followingpassage.
Not everyoneknows clearly how to build personal savings, but a savings plan started on awebsite has helped many put away a nice tidy sum. The fifty-two weekmoney challenge is simple and if it is maintained, it will result in 1378dollars in your savings account each year. It starts with saving an amount equaling1 dollar in week 1, 2 dollars in week 2, 3 dollars in week 3, and continuesright through the year until 52 dollars in week 52. While these are small insignificant amounts, at the end of the year, you will have enough for anemergency fund, family celebration or holiday.
Another simple way of building some savingsis by depositing as little as two percent of your monthly income into a savingsaccount. The key is that before bills and living expenses start to eat awayyour salary, you should put aside the savings portion of your pay. Once you have reached a thousanddollars, you’ll find you probably have the motivation to continue to save evenmore.
11. According to the fifty-two money challenges, how muchshould be put away in week 3?
12. What does the speaker suggest people do with theirmonthly income?
13. What is the speaker mainly talking about?
Questions 14 through 16 are based on thefollowing passage.
Life in the town of Tivaton is made upof both good news and bad news. At a local school a successful charity supperhas been held. They made more than one thousand dollars and the local family inneed got the majority of it. Many people came to the event and the family was verygrateful. Yet the bad news is students have been made to wait outside beforeschool. It has been really cold lately and the school should consider lettingthe students in to get warm before the weather gets even colder. In the town ofTivaton, a new ice-cream store, the Muddy Moos, is opened.It’s a great place to get ice-cream, coffee and other food. As for the badnews, a new bank has been built. While it is good to have a bank nearby, it hasalso brought much more traffic. In the morning on the way to school, it’shorrible. There is really no space for any more new buildings in the town.Tivaton is more and more like a big city. On reviewing these local news events,it seems Tivaton has a balance of good news and bad news. At least there isenough good news, so it remains a good place for the residents to enjoy theirlife.
14. For the local family in need of help, what did they get?
15. According to the speaker, what should the school do?
