Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 31 to 35.
Naming customs are different around the world. In most cultures, however, people have at least two names: a family name and given name. Your given name is the name you receive when you are born. Your family name is the name you share with other people in your farnily In the United States, the family name is often called the last name, and the given name is often called the first name. However, the order of two names is not the same everywhere. For example, in many Asian countnes, the family name is first and the given name is second. When two people from different cultures meet, sometimes they use the incorrect name. This can cause embarrassment. 
Family names can show something about family’s early history. The origin of many English family names is a place, like London, or a job, such as Farmer or Shoemaker. A long time ago, these families probably worked as farmers or shoemakers. Swedish and Danish family names often mean son of ____. For example, Johansson means son of Johan. In South Korea, there are only about 250 family names. These names go back hundreds of year to vary old clans. About half of all Koreans have one of the three most common family names – Kim, Park or Lee.
There is generally no choice about family names, but there is much more choice about given names. Parents choose their child’s name for many different reasons. They many select a name that sounds beautiful or means something special. These names may have meaning like peaceful or happiness. In some cultures, there may be a connection between children’s names and when or how _they_ were born. For example, a Yoruba child in Nigeria might have a name like Sunday or Born on a Sunny day. In some countries, parents may pay money to a professional baby namer to help them find a good name. They want to find a name that will be lucky for their child.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 36 to 42.
It is hard to get any agreement on the precise meaning of the term "social class". In everyday life, people tend to have a different approach to those they consider their equals from which they assume with people they consider higher or lower than themselves in social scale. The criteria we use to 'place' a new acquaintance, however, are a complex mixture of factors. Dress, way of speaking, area of residence in a given city or province, education and manners all play a part.
In ancient civilizations, the Sumerian, for example, which flourished in the lower Euphrates valley from 2000 to 5000 B.C. social differences were based on birth, status or rank, rather than on wealth. Four main classes were recognized. These were the rulers, the priestly administrators, the freemen (such as craftsmen, merchants or farmers) and the slaves.
In Greece, after the sixth-century B.C., there was a growing conflict between the peasants and the aristocrats, and a gradual decrease in the power of the aristocracy when a kind of 'middle class' of traders and skilled workers grew up. The population of Athens, for example, was divided into three main classes which were politically and legally distinct. About one-third of the total population was slaves, who did not count politically at all, a fact often forgotten by those who praise Athens as the nursery of democracy. The next main group consisted of resident foreigners, the, 'metics' who were freemen, though they too were allowed no share in political life. The third group was the powerful body of 'citizens", who were themselves divided into sub-classes.
In the later Middle Ages, however, the development of a money economy and the growth of cities and trade led to the rise of another class, the 'burghers' or city merchants and mayors. These were the predecessors of the modern middle classes. Gradually high office and occupation assumed importance in determining social position, as it became more and more possible for a person born to one station in life to move to another. This change affected the towns more than the country areas, where remnants of feudalism lasted much longer.
