III. Read the following passage and choose the correct option to fill in each blank. (10 pts.)

In 1900, the United States had only three cities with more than a million residents – New York, Chicago, and Philadelphia. By 1930, it had ten giant metropolises. The newer ones experienced remarkable growth, which reflected basic changes in the economy. The population of Los Angeles, 114,000 in 1900, rose spectacularly in the early decades of the twentieth century, increasing a dramatic 1,400 percent from 1900 to 1930.

A number of circumstances contributed to the meteoric rise of Los Angeles. The agricultural potential of the area was enormous if water for irrigation could be found, and the city founders had the vision and dating to obtain it by constructing a 225-mile aqueduct, completed in 1913, to tap the water of the Owens River. The city had a superb natural harbor, as well as excellent rail connections. The climate made it possible to shoot motion pictures year-round, hence Hollywood. Hollywood not only supplied jobs but also it disseminated an image of the good life in Southern California on screens all across the nation. The most important single industry powering the growth of Los Angeles, however, was directly linked to the automobile. The demand for petroleum to fuel gasoline engines led to the opening of the Southern California oil fields and made Los Angeles North America’s greatest refining center.

Los Angeles was a product of the auto age in another sense as well: its distinctive spatial organization depended on widespread private ownership of automobiles. Los Angeles was a decentralized metropolis, sprawling across the desert landscape over an area of 400 square miles. It was a city without a real center. The downtown business district did not grow apace with the city as a whole, and the rapid transit system designed to link the center with outlying areas withered away from disuse. Approximately 800,000 cars were registered in Los Angeles County in 1930, one per 2.7 residents. Some visitors from the east coast were dismayed at the endless urban sprawl and dismissed. Los Angeles as a mere collection of suburbs in search of a city, but the freedom and mobility of a city built on wheels attracted floods of migrants to the city.

66. What is the passage mainly about?

A. The growth of cities in the United States in the early 1900’s

B. The development of the Southern California oil fields

C. Factors contributing to the growth of Los Angeles

D. Industry and city planning in Los Angeles

67. What does the word “which” in paragraph 1 refer to?

A. had an excessively large population

B. was not really a single city

C. lacked good suburban areas in which to live

D. was not accurately portrayed by Hollywood images

IV. Read the passage carefully and decide whether the following statements are True (T) or False (F). (5 pts.)

In the 1880s, gold was discovered in what is now the most northern state of the USA, Alaska. Many people came to the area hoping to get rich. New towns were built and grew quickly. One such town was called Iditarod, which means ‘far, distant place’. This town grew so quickly during 1909 that it briefly became the largest city in Alaska. In the summer months, essential supplies could be delivered to these towns by boat, but in winter, the rivers and the ocean froze, and there was no way to get to them. So, in 1910, a winter track was built, which would be used by teams of dogs pulling sleds. They would take mails, food and clothes to the gold miners. The track became known as the Iditarod Trail. It took a team of dogs about three weeks to travel across Alaska. They stopped at ‘ roadhouses’ where the drivers could get a warm bed for the night and something to eat for both themselves and their dogs. The trail was used every winter until the 1920s when aero planes replaced steam boats and dog teams as the main form of transport.
