Questions 151-154 refer to the following passage.

One of the most hazardous conditions a firefighter will ever encounter is a backdraft
(also known as a smoke explosion). A backdraft can occur in the hot-smoldering phase of a
fire when burning is incomplete and there is not enough oxygen to sustain the fire.
Unburned carbon particles and other flammable products, combined with the intense heat,
may cause instantaneous combustion if more oxygen reaches the fire.

Firefighters should be aware of the conditions that indicate the possibility for a
backdraft to occur. When there is a lack of oxygen during a fire, the smoke becomes filled
with carbon dioxide or carbon monoxide and turns dense gray or black. Other warning signs
of a potential backdraft are little or no visible flame, excessive heat, smoke leaving the
building in puffs, muffled sounds, and smoke-stained windows.

Proper ventilation will make a backdraft less likely. Opening a room or building at the
highest point allows heated gases and smoke to be released gradually. However, suddenly
breaking a window or opening a door is a mistake, because it allows oxygen to rush in,
causing an explosion.

151. A backdraft is a dangerous condition for firefighters mainly because

a. there is not enough oxygen for breathing.
b. the heat is extremely intense.
c. the smoke is dangerously thick.
d. an explosion occurs.

152. Which of the following is NOT mentioned as a potential backdraft warning sign?
a. windows stained with smoke
b. flames shooting up from the building
c. puffs of smoke leaving the building
d. more intense heat than usual

153. To prevent the possibility of a backdraft, a firefighter should____________

Page 11/15

a. carry an oxygen tank.
b. open a door to allow gases to escape.
c. make an opening at the top of the building.
d. break a window to release carbon particles.

154. When compared with a hot, smoldering fire, a fire with visible, high-reaching
flames_____________

a. has more oxygen available for combustion.
b. has more carbon dioxide available for consumption.
c. produces more dense gray smoke.
d. is more likely to cause a backdraft.

Questions 155-160 refer to the following article.

(1) Glaciers consist of fallen snow that compresses over many years into large,
thickened ice masses. Most of the world’s glacial ice is found in Antarctica and
Greenland, but glaciers are found on nearly every continent, even Africa. Presently, 10%
of land area is covered with glaciers. Glacial ice often appears blue because ice absorbs
all other colors but reflects blue. Almost 90% of an iceberg is below water; only about
10% shows above water. What makes glaciers unique is their ability to move. Due to
sheer mass, glaciers flow like very slow rivers. Some glaciers are as small as football
fields, whereas others grow to be over 100 kilometers long.

(2) Within the past 750,000 years, scientists know that there have been eight Ice
Age cycles, separated by warmer periods called interglacial periods. Currently, the earth
is nearing the end of an interglacial, meaning that another Ice Age is due in a few
thousand years. This is part of the normal climate variation cycle. Greenhouse warming
may delay the onset of another glacial era, but scientists still have many questions to
answer about climate change. Although glaciers change very slowly over long periods,
they may provide important global climate change signals.

(3) The girth of the ice, combined with gravity’s influence, causes glaciers to flow
very slowly. Once a mass of compressed ice reaches a critical thickness of about 18
meters thick, it becomes so heavy that it begins to deform and move. Ice may flow
down mountains and valleys, fan across plains, or spread out to sea. Movement along
the underside of a glacier is slower than movement at the top due to the friction
created as it slides along the ground’s surface.

(4) Most glaciers are found in remote mountainous areas. However, some found
near cities or towns present a danger to the people living nearby. On land, lakes formed
on top of a glacier during the melt season may cause floods. At the narrow part of a

Page 12/15

valley glacier, ice falling from the glacier presents a hazard to hikers below. When ice
breaks off over the ocean, an iceberg is formed.

(5) Glaciers are a natural resource and contain 75% of the world’s freshwater.
People worldwide are trying to harness the power of these frozen streams. Some towns
rely on glacial melting from a nearby ice cap to provide drinking water. Some farmers
spread soil or ashes over snow to promote melting, hoping that the melting will provide
water to irrigate crops in drought-stricken areas. Others have channeled meltwater from
glaciers to their fields. Scientists and engineers have worked together to tap into glacial
resources, using electricity that has been generated in part by damming glacial
meltwater.

155. According to paragraph 4, what is a negative effect of living too close to a glacier?
a. The mass of the glacier reaches a critical thickness.
b. About 10% of a glacier shows above water.
c. Spreading dark material over snow promotes melting.
d. Lakes formed on top of glaciers may cause floods.

156. The underlined word remote, as used in paragraph 4 of the passage, most nearly

means

a. isolated. b. nearby.

c. slow traveling. d. difficult to see.

157. The passage explains that glaciers can be found where?
a. only on Antarctica
b. only Greenland and Alaska
c. on nearly every continent
d. only the north and south poles

158. According to the passage, why does glacial ice often appear blue?
a. because it does not absorb the color blue
b. because it absorbs all other colors but reflects blue
c. because it does not absorb all other colors including blue
d. because it is blue in color

159. After reading the passage, what can one conclude about glaciers?
a. There will not be another Ice Age coming.
b. Glaciers have both negative and positive effects on human life.

Page 13/15

c. Scientists have difficulty studying glaciers.
d. Scientists have minimal data on the formation of glaciers.
160. After reading the passage, what can one infer about glaciers?
a. Further exploration is needed to tap the power of glacial ice in fueling electric energy.
b. With variations in climate, glaciers shrink and expand.
c. Glaciers form in cold regions where the rate of snowfall is greater than

the melting rate of snow.
d. Glaciers are usually bordered at the sides by rock debris.
