SECTION III: READING (7 pts)

PART 1: Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions. Write your answer (A,B,C, or D) in the numbered box.

The ‘Neighbourhood Watch’ scheme all started a few years ago in the quiet village of Mollington after a number of burglaries in the village and the surrounding area. The residents of the village came up with the idea that they themselves could keep an eye on their neighbours’ property while they were away on holiday. Since then, and with the support of the government and the police, more than 50,000 ‘Neighbourhood Watch’ schemes have been set up all over the country.
The object of each ‘Watch’ group is to reduce the opportunities that criminals have in any particular street or area. Each resident who is a member of the scheme agrees to call the police whenever they see something suspicious. Everything is done calmly and decreetly – it is the police who actually check out each report and investigate what is happening. Residents who are part of the ‘Watch’ are not supposed to act as police or put themselves in any danger.
When a new ‘Neighbourhood Watch’ scheme is set up in an area, the first thing people notice is the large, brightly coloured ‘Neighbourhood Watch’ sign. This is a great deterrent to most burglars and vandals, because very few of them take a chance of breaking into someone’s house if they know that there is a high risk of beeing seen by neighbours keeping a look-out. Burglars also know that people who are part of ‘Neighbourhood Watch’ schemes are more likely to have fitted good locks to their doors and windows.
There’s another benefit too. In the time since the ‘Neighbourhood Watch’ scheme came into existence, there is growing evidence of a new community spirit. It is bringing people together as never before, and encouraging people to care for each other. New friendships are being made, and contact is often established with old people living on their own, who are often the most frightened and the most at risk.

C. burglars are less likely to break into houses.
D. residents put signs on their doors.
Question 4: One other benefit of ‘Watch’ schemes is that ………
A. people get to know each other better.
B. members of the ‘Watch’ look after old people.

THE MEANING OR DREAMS
We all have dreams and can often remember parts or images from them. Here is a guide to the meanings of the most common images that appear in dreams.
………..
This is one of the most common images, typically showing insecurity and anxiety. It may relate to a fear that a career or a relationship is coming to an end. The fact that we are not hurt when we land represents a hope that things won’t turn out too badly.
………..
This common dream – which commonly involves using our own arm or leg power (rather than any kind of engine) – seems to represent a wish to escape from the problems we are facing in everyday
life. It may also represent a wish to achieve greater power.
………….
This represents strength and power. If the dreamers are inside, they are protected by the thick walls. If they are outside and looking at it, they may desire that safety. It is also sometimes the symbol of a
woman.
…………..
This suggests that the dreamer has mixed feelings of love and hostility towards the person who dies, particularly if that person is close. If dreamers see themselves die, this may represent a desire to escape from pressure.
……………
Anxiety dreams are very common when something is worrying us. We are being put to the test. The mind remembers times in the past when we were nervous, and a common image is that of a test for which we were badly prepared.
