THIS IS THE END OF THE LISTENING TEST
The following text is for questions 16 to 20.
We are writing to complain about ads on TV. There are so many ads, especially during our favorite programs. We think they should be stopped for a number of reasons.
First, ads are nuisance. They go on for a long time and there are so many. Sometimes there seems to be too many ads in one program. Seconds, ads are a bad influence on people. They try to encourage people to buy unhealthy food like beer, soft drink, candy and chips. And they make people want things they do not really need and cannot afford. It can lead to consumerism. Finally, ads disturb programs that people watch. That is because they want to put all their ads on popular programs that a lot of people watch. Some programs that are not so popular get stopped because they do not attract enough ads, even though those programs may be someone’s favorite.
For those reasons, we think your TV station should stop showing ads. They interrupt programs. They are a bad influence on people, and they sometimes put a stop to people’s favorite shows.
We are sick of ads, and now we mostly watch other channels.

The following text is for questions 26 to 30.
To improve comfort and cleanliness at our school, a number of dustbins should be increased.
When we look at classrooms, school corridors and schoolyard, there are papers, mineral water cups, straws and napkins here and there. The condition of uncleanliness and discomfort really hinders learning and teaching environment. Litters, especially empty plastic cups or glasses, thrown carelessly cause disease. They can be filled out with water coming from the rain. This can be placed for dengue mosquitoes to spread out. Besides, these rubbish can deteriorate the scene. Well-painted wall and green schoolyard do not mean anything if litters are scattered everywhere.
Anyway I notice that most of the students in our school have responsibilities for their school environment. They put they litters on the proper places. But some are not diligent enough to find the dustbins. The numbers of dustbins in our school are not enough. More dustbins should be put beside each of steps, outside of the classrooms, and some more along the corridors. Probably one dustbin should be in every ten meters. So when students want to throw away their litters, they can find the them easily.
When school is equipped with sufficient dustbins, we do not have problems of filth and discomfort any more. Our school will be very clean and becomes a nice place to study.

28. What is the writer’s suggestion to solve the problem?
A. To buy more dustbins D. To ask parents to give more dustbins
B. To hire more gardeners E. To ask students to clean the school yard
C. To use dustbins efficiently
29. What does the third paragraph discuss?
A. The responsibility D. The outside of the classroom

Hello, and welcome to Harvard. People make a university great, so whether you are a prospective student, current student, professor, researcher, staff member, graduate, parent, neighbor, or visitor, your interest and enthusiasm are valued and appreciated.
As a historian, I am proud to lead an institution with such a rich and storied past. Harvard began in colonial days with a handful of students, little property and limited power and prestige, but a determined mission: “To advance Learning and perpetuate it to Posterity,” as a 1643 brochure put it.
That bold vision has guided Harvard for the past four centuries and made it the world-leading center of discovery and learning that it is today. It is our collective efforts, however, that today make this university such a vibrant place to live, to learn, to work, and to explore. No matter what your reason for visiting, we’re glad you came and I hope you will make the most of your time here.
