Question 28, 29, 30, 31, 32 and 33 are based on the following reading.

Colour has a complex and diversified cu7ltural construct. Serious works on colors in its historical cont6ext is rare. The search for universal or archetypal truths in colour is ahistorical and devoid of transcultural truth, despite what many books based on pseudo-esoteric pop psychology would have us believe.
The silence of historians on the subject of colour is the result of three different sets of problems. The first concerns documentation and preservation. We see the colours transmitted to us as time has altered them from their original past. Moreover, we see them under different conditions from those know by past societies. The second problem concerns methodology. The historian must grapple with a host of factors; e.g., physics, chemistry, materials, iconography, ideology, and the symbolic meanings that colours convey. The proper method resembles that of palaeontologists studying cave paintings without the aid of texts.
The third set of problems is philosophical: it is wrong to project contemporary conceptions and definitions of colour onto past objects as judgments and values are not static and eternal. The danger of anachronism is very real. For example, the natural order of colours was unknown before the 17th century as was the notion of primary and secondary colours. however, research on colours aims is to explore to show how far beyond the artistic sphere this history of colour err in considering the artistic realms only, the lessons to be learned form colour lie elsewhere.

28. What problem regarding colour does the writer explain in the first paragraph?

Our view of colour is strongly affected by changing fashion

Analysis is complicated by the bewildering number of natural colours

Colours can have different associations in different parts of the world

Certain popular books have dismissed colour as insignificant

29. The writer suggests that the priority when conducting historical research on colour is to ----

find some way of organising the mass of available data

focus one's interst as far back as the prehistoric era

ignore the interpretations of other modern day historians

relate pictures to information other sources

30. In the 3rd paragraph, the writer says that the historian writing about colour should be careful-

not to analyse in an old-fashioned way

when making basic distinctions between key ideas

not to make unwise predictons

when using certain terms and concepts

31. In the 3rd paragraph, the writer says there needs to be further research done on----

the history of colour in relation to objects in the world around us

the concerns he has raised in an earlier publication

the many ways in which artists have used colour over the years

The relationship between artistic works and the history of colour

32. An idea recurring in the text is that people who have studied colour have -----

failed to keep up with scientific developments

not understood its global significance

found it difficult to be fully objective

been muddled about their basic aims

33. What is the first reason the writer gives for the lack of academic work on the history of colour?

Very little documentation exists for historians to use

Colour has been rather looked down upon as a fit subject for academic study

Historians have seen colour as being outside their field of expertise.

There are problems of reliability associated with the artefacts availabel

Question 40, 41, 42, 43, 44 and 45 are based on the following reading.

I decided to write this book because I was dissatisfied with parenting-advice literature, oversimplified and at odds with current scientific knowledge. Furthermore, frequent requests by frustrated parents convinced me that parents needed a consistent way of thinking to guide them in making worthy decisions. Contemporary parentings exceedingly difficult. Parents engaged in workforce often lament the lack of practical advice on their roles. pressured and preoccupied parents have added to the grave concern for the well-being of youth.
The fact that, at the moment, the younger generation is achieving less only manifests a deep rooted social problem affecting even the youth having the best of life's privileges. Deprivation of childhood, growing up too fast, or a sense of materialism in young people abound in the media. There is a growing sense of 'youth alienation' But agreement on what parents can and should do remains in a flux. While the goal of character and moral development has stood firm, the approach to accomplishing this has varied widely.
Some authors advise a 'parent - power' stance requiring to train and instruct as early as possible to 'maximise brain growth'. Others, the 'child-power advocates, however, attribute many of today's social problems to the excessive pressure put on children by parents. Children, for them, have built-in timetables for maturing and learning. The reality is that there are no hard and fast rules. The current predominant trend on child-rearing literature denies parents of any notable contribution to their children's development. This revelation of parental weakness comes at a time when many busy parents are poised to retreat from family obligations`, and, indeed, it grants them license to do so.

40. The author says that one reasons for writing the book was the fact that-

research suggests the quality of parenting skills has deeriorated

today's scientific views of parenting seem to be flawed

there is a lack of parenting literature written in a straightforward way

41. What does the author say about the concerns parents have?

Some of the issues are contradictory in nature

They are understandable given the challenges modern life

They cause a disproportionate amount of stress in family relationships

The balance between work and family life is only a secondary problem

42. What view of young people is promoted in the media?

They want to live an adult life before they are mentally ready

They are unaware of the opportunities provided for them

They are unable to appreciate the value of money

They fail to demonstrate a sense of purpose

43. hat does the author say in the second paragraph about parenting advice?

Its core objective has remained constant

Its ideology stems for contemporary social issues

It traditionally placed strong emphasis on the protection of the child

It currently benefits from techniques tried and tested by previous generations

44. In the third paragraph, what point is the author making about bringing up children?

Thero is an absence of consensus on child-rearing among the expert themselves

Educational policies should be revised in the light of recent findings

Strict parents tend to have children who are academically unsuccessful

One approach to child-rearing appears to be more effective than all others

45. What criticism of contemporary thinking on child-rearing does the author make?

Itrepeats theories which have no solid foundation

It pleaces too much importance on formal education

It encourages parents to neglect thier resposibilites

It undermines the role of friends in children's development
