I would like to express in this section my warmest gratitude to the colleagues who have sent us valuable materials and helped us promote this site. Special Thanks to Dina Salloom for her contributions especially the worksheets she has sent to this site:

In this section you find ordinary secondary tests which are not based on quizzes and separate sentences but on paragraph level. Unlike the American way of testing, the Tunisian way is based on context and paragraph level.

                          2001 - The Film of the Year

1)        2001: A Space Odyssey is back! This great science-fiction film first came to cinemas in 1968. The director was Stanley Kubrick. It will open in cinemas around the world on March 7, 2001. ‘A wonderful film!’ people said in 1968. ‘No’ others said. ‘It’s the most boring film I’ve ever seen.’ What will modern audiences think?

2)      The film took three years to make. It is based on a book called The Sentinel by Arthur C. Clarke, the science-fiction writer. The film is about space travel. But it is also about the history of man, and the fight between man and machines. A computer, HAL (voiced by Douglas Rain), takes control of a spaceship on a journey to Jupiter. It kills everybody except the commander – Dr David Bowman. He has to find a way to beat HAL.

 3)    Some people think the action of the film is too slow. There is not a lot of speaking. Also the ending is very difficult to understand. Some people want a lot of action and easy answers in a film. They don’t want silence and questions.

 4)    But others disagree. They say that the silence makes space more frightening and mysterious. The film has some of the best scenes in cinema history. The use of music is wonderful. The fight between Dr David Bowman and HAL is very exciting. Above all, the film makes people think.

5)    Some of the special effects are still very good, even today. 2001: A Space Odyssey was the first big science-fiction film. Other films like Alien, and Independence Day owe a lot to Stanley Kubrick’s film. He was one of the greatest film directors in the world. A Space Odyssey is a very special film. It doesn’t have any famous film stars, but this only adds to its greatness. The real stars of the film are the emptiness of space, and the beauty of the music that fills its silence.

6)     What will young people think of this 33-year-old film? A few months ago a magazine in America invited young people to watch the film in a cinema, not on video. The results were surprising. 72% of the young people said the film was ‘awesome’. Only 10% didn’t like it.

                                                         The Text

 

A) They mature more quickly, are said to be more responsible and do better at school. Now

Media-savvy girls are putting another one over the boys by leading the digital

communications revolution. According to one of the most comprehensive studies of the

effect on children of the explosion in media choices of the past 15 years, girls aged 12 to 15

are more likely than boys to have a mobile phone, use the internet, listen to the radio and

read newspapers or magazines. Only when it comes to playing computer and console

games do boys overtake girls.

 

B) Given the historic domination of the home telephone by teenage girls, perhaps it is not

surprising they are using the internet to communicate with friends for hours on end. Almost

all children between 12 and 15 with the internet at home said they were "confident" surfing

the web and did so on average for eight hours a week. But girls are more likely than boys to

use the web as a communication tool.

 

C) The study, focusing on children aged between eight and 15, also showed the extent to

which mobile phones and the internet are taken for granted by primary school children.

Their 11th birthday appears to be the starting point, with eight out of 10 children having

their own mobile by that age. One in six questioned reported coming across "worrying"

material on the internet, while more than seven out of 10 parents of children aged 12-15

worried about their offspring seeing inappropriate material. Four in 10 children aged

between eight and 11 and more than seven in 10 aged 12-15 used the internet by

themselves at home.

 

D) The embracing new forms of technology, children still report watching almost 14 hours of

television a week. Children in Scotland, Northern Ireland, those from ethnic minority groups

and those in low-income households were found to watch substantially above average.

More than a third of eight to 11-year-olds said they mainly watched television on their own.

Phenomenon of children setting the timer on the video recorder while their parents struggle

with the instruction manual also appears to have translated to the internet age: two-thirds of

those parents also admitted that their children knew more about the medium than they did.

 

E) Although Pay-TV operators point out that sophisticated systems allow parents to control

access to channels, more than seven in 10 parents in households with satellite

TV admitted they had not set any controls. Four in 10 parents of 12 to 15-year-olds said

there were no house rules about watching television.

  The road to the first approved gene therapy procedure was rocky and fraught with controversy. The biology of human gene therapy is very complex, and there are many techniques that still need to be developed and diseases that need to be understood more fully before gene therapy can be used appropriately. The public policy debate surrounding the possible use of genetically engineered material in human subjects has been equally complex. Major participants in the debate have come from the fields of

      1

biology, government, law, medicine, philosophy, politics, and religion, each bringing different views to the discussion.

     Scientists took the logical step of trying to introduce genes into human cells, focusing on diseases caused by single-gene defects, such as hemophilia, and sickle cell anemia. However, this has been much harder than modifying simple bacteria, primarily because of the problems involved in carrying large sections of DNA and delivering them to the correct site on the comparatively large human genome


  On September 14, 1990, the U.S. National Institutes of Health, performed the first approved gene therapy procedure on four-year old Ashanti De Silva. Born with a rare genetic disease called severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), she lacked a healthy immune system, and was vulnerable to every passing germ or infection. Children with this illness usually develop overwhelming infections and rarely survive to adulthood; a common childhood illness like chickenpox is life-threatening. Ashanti led a confined existence — avoiding contact with people outside her family, remaining in the sterile environment of her home, and battling frequent illnesses with massive amounts of antibiotics.

2

     In Ashanti’s gene therapy procedure, doctors removed white blood cells from the child's body, let the cells grow in the lab, inserted the missing gene into the cells, and then infused the genetically modified blood cells back into the patient's bloodstream. Laboratory tests have shown that the therapy strengthened Ashanti’s immune system by 40%; she no longer has recurrent colds, she has been allowed to attend school, and she was immunized against whooping cough. This procedure was not a cure; the white blood cells treated genetically only work for a few months, after which the process must be repeated. As of early 2007, she was still in good health, and she was attending college. However, there is no consensus on what portion of her improvement should be attributed to gene therapy versus other treatments. Some would state that the case is of great importance despite its indefinite results because it demonstrated that gene therapy could be practically attempted without adverse consequences.
