31. Paragraph A v 32. Paragraph B viii 33. Paragraph C i 34. Paragraph D ii 35. Paragraph E The passage has four paragraphs labelled A-D.


Paragraph A


Time is one of the most fundamental aspects of human life. We use time to organize our activities, coordinate our interactions, measure our progress and plan our future. But how did humans learn to measure and display time? The history of clocks and timekeeping devices is a fascinating story that spans thousands of years and involves many cultures and civilizations.


Paragraph B


One of the earliest ways to measure time was by observing the movements of celestial bodies such as the sun, the moon and the stars. Ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks and Chinese used sundials and obelisks to tell the time of day by the position and length of shadows. They also used water clocks to measure shorter intervals of time by the flow of water in or out of a container. Water clocks were more reliable than sundials in cloudy weather or at night, but they had some drawbacks. They were affected by temperature changes, evaporation, leaks and variations in water pressure.


Paragraph C


The invention of mechanical clocks was a major breakthrough in timekeeping technology. The first mechanical clocks were developed in Europe around the 14th century. They used weights, springs, gears and escapements to regulate the movement of a pointer on a dial. Mechanical clocks were more accurate and consistent than water clocks, but they still had some errors due to friction, wear and tear, and variations in temperature and humidity.


Paragraph D


The improvement of time measurement devices continued with the introduction of new methods and instruments. In 1656, Christiaan Huygens invented the pendulum clock, which used a swinging weight to keep time. Pendulum clocks were more accurate than previous clocks, but they were sensitive to external disturbances such as wind and earthquakes. In 1761, John Harrison invented the marine chronometer, which was a portable clock that could keep accurate time at sea. Marine chronometers were essential for navigation and exploration. In 1840, Alexander Bain invented the electric clock, which used an electric current to power a pendulum or a balance wheel. Electric clocks were more reliable and convenient than mechanical clocks.


Reading Passage 4




In this section, you will read a passage about the development of the watch. The passage describes how watches evolved from portable clocks to modern devices that can do much more than tell time.


The questions in this section are multiple choice, matching features and short answer questions. You will have to choose the correct letter (A, B, C or D) for each multiple choice question, write the correct letter (A-H) for each matching features question and write no more than two words for each short answer question.


Here are some tips on how to answer these types of questions:



  • Read the instructions carefully and follow the word limit.



  • Read the multiple choice questions and options before reading the passage and try to predict what kind of information you need to choose the correct answer.



  • Use the keywords and synonyms in the questions and options to help you locate the answers in the passage.



  • Eliminate the options that are clearly wrong or irrelevant.



  • Select the option that best matches what you read in the passage. Do not choose an option based on your own knowledge or opinion.



  • Read the matching features questions before reading the passage and try to understand what kind of information you need to match with each feature.



  • Use the keywords and synonyms in the questions and features to help you locate the relevant parts of the passage.



  • Select the feature that best describes each question. Do not select a feature that contains details or examples.



  • Check your answers for accuracy and consistency.



  • Read the short answer questions before reading the passage and try to predict what kind of information you need to answer them.

The development of the watch was a natural consequence of the miniaturization of mechanical clocks. The first watches were portable clocks that were worn as pendants or carried in pockets. They were mainly used by wealthy people as status symbols and fashion accessories. The earliest watches were inaccurate and unreliable, but they gradually improved with the invention of new mechanisms such as the balance spring, the fusee and the lever escapement.


The first wristwatch was made in 1812 for Caroline Murat, the Queen of Naples and sister of Napoleon Bonaparte. However, wristwatches did not become popular until the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when they were adopted by military personnel for convenience and efficiency. Wristwatches also became more accurate and durable with the introduction of new materials such as steel, rubber and plastic.


Paragraph F


Modern watches are more than just timekeeping devices. They can also perform various functions such a
