  • Q1

    For numbers 1-5, read the text below to answer the following items. Look closely at the words printed in italics.

    One balmy July evening as I sat writing, insects whirled and hummed around me. Suddenly, a butterfly glided to a landing on a paper before me. I continued writing, but my pen detoured around the tiny creature so as not to disturb its fascinated contemplation of the brilliantly lit paper.

    When I came to the end of the page, I hesitated. Brush the butterfly away? No, I decided to look more closely at this living jewel with a magnifying glass.

    How, I wondered, can a creature be so tiny and yet so complicated? How did the chrysalis gather the basic materials necessary for its own evolution and then transform them into eyes, legs, feelers, and wings? Those wings, especially, made me think. Their pastel colors, arranged with such geometric perfection – where do they come from? On this tiny body, scarcely as big as a grain of rice, are colors that equal or surpass those of the works of our greatest painters. (Fr. Marcel-Marie Dumarais, OP, God or Chance)

    For items 6-10, read the passage below to answer the following items.

    It is odd, but in our family, love always began with a fall of some form or another. This thought occurred to me when my own first love began. I spent one night foolishly thinking about this, but the cocks crowed and Mother woke up to prepare Father’s breakfast, and still, I had no answer.

    When Grandfather was still alive, he used to tell us, between coughs, what happened to him, one day when he was fifteen. He was sleeping on the bank of the river after swimming when suddenly a strong wind came. It shook the coconut tree nearby, and fruit, like a wooden rolling pin, fell straight on his left shoulder. Grandfather screamed with pain, and his cry was so loud and terrible that several girls bathing around the bend of the river draped their sarongs about them and rushed to where he was. One of the girls helplessly held her sarong in her hands and in her excitement and fright, did not know what to do with it. When Grandfather saw her, he forgot his pain quickly, and a year later, she became Grandmother. (Celso Carunungan, Like a Big Brave Man)
