    C- Reading
    5- Read the following passage, then answer the questions:




    In order to think properly, one must not jump at hasty generalization. When you wish to make an argument for a certain position, you need to gather information for support. In doing this, you must be very careful to gather sufficient evidence to support your conclusion. When a person gathers too little information to support the conclusion being argued, it can not be a right one. Just because one or two taxi drivers are rude does not mean that you can generalize that all taxi drivers behave this way. However, you can say that the particular taxi drivers you have encountered were rude .Thus, it is clear that people build their prejudices on a very small sampling and then generalize and apply them to an entire group of people or things.
    A. Answer the following questions:
    1. What should you do to think properly?
    2. How can you support your conclusion?
    3. What does the underlined word (one) refer to?

    4. ……………….people behave in a rude way.

    2-I can support it by gathering information and sufficient evidence.

    . Write a letter of about 100 words to your friend Amal, advising her to organize her time to pass the mid-year exams successfully.
    Your name is• Hend Ramy.
    Dear Amal,
    How are you? I hope you are well. The best way to use time is to plan it, so the skill of making a study plan is very important not only for students but also for every successful man. It saves time and energy because you know what to do and when to do the thing. You don't waste time doing a bit of work here and a bit there. It enables you to see a comprehensive overall picture of your time and how to manage it. A study plan should be flexible and elastic to cope with any sudden circumstances. It should include time for rest and play to keep your mind fresh and your body sound. Finally, I would like to say that you can't enjoy your life unless you plan it. I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon.
    Yours,
    Hend Ramy
    2. Write a paragraph of about 100 words on:
    'Your dream house'
    If you ask most people about their dream house, they will say that they dream of building a high-tech house provided with all means of comfort. However, if you ask me about this matter, I will give you a different answer. I wish I could build a house in Makkah near the Holy Mosque. I just want a very simple house with a small garden. I will make it from mud-bricks. Everyone knows that mud-brick houses are suitable for hot climate because they don't conduct heat well, so the inside stays cool. They are also easy and cheap to construct. I do believe Makah is an ideal location for my dream house. Living near the Holy Mosque is an advantage in itself as I will be able to pray the five daily prayers in the Holy Mosque which is the most revered place of worship for all Muslims. I will also do Umra from time to time and make Hajj every year.

Today, A.I has become an essential part of the technology industry. Thinking machines and artificial beings appear in Greek. Human likenesses, believing to have intelligence, were built in every major civilization. Stories of these creatures and their fates discuss many of the same hopes, fears and ethical concerns that are presented by artificial intelligence. The study of logic led directly to the invention of the programmable digital electronic computer based on the work of mathematician Alan Turing and others.
    Turing’s theory of computation suggested that a machine could stimulate any conceivable act of mathematical deduction.
    This, along with recent discoverers in neurology, information theory and cybernetics inspired small groups of researching to begin seriously; considering the possibility of building an electronic brain.

    Experts still do not know exactly how the virus spread from Asia to Europe and Africa. Migratory birds fly long distances between a winter home and a summer home. Some researchers say these birds are getting too much blame. But scientists believe ducks are a big part
    of the problem. They say ducks might not get sick from bird flu but spread the disease easily to chickens.
    Animal health experts say people who want to protect chickens and other birds should keep them in closed areas, away from wild birds. Also, farm birds should not drink from water used by wild birds. if the virus appears, people with special training and protective clothing should kill all the birds on the farm. The farm must be cleaned completely.

    Hassan Fathy, who was born in Alexandria in 1900 and died in Cairo in 1989, is Egypt's best known architect since Imhotep. He is married to Aziza Hassanein, he left no direct descendants. He was a noted Egyptian architect who pioneered appropriate technology for building in Egypt, especially by working to re-establish the use of mud brick. Fathy trained as an architect in Egypt, graduating in 1926 from the University of King Fuad I (now the University of Cairo). He designed his first mud brick buildings in the late 1930s. He held several government positions and was appointed head of the Architectural Section of the Faculty of Fine Arts, Cairo, in 1954. Fathy was recognized with the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 1980. Fathy utilized ancient design methods and materials. He integrated a knowledge of the rural Egyptian economic situation with a wide knowledge of ancient architectural and town design techniques. He trained local inhabitants to make their own materials and build their own buildings. Climatic conditions, public health considerations, and ancient craft skills also affected his design decisions. Based on the structural massing of ancient buildings, Fathy incorporated dense brick walls and traditional courtyard forms to provide passive cooling.

    c- Reading
    5- Read the following passage, then answer the questions:
    In many countries around the world, women are entering the work force in great numbers for the first time. It is true that more women are currently employed than ever before. However, the goals of equal work opportunity for women have not been fully realized. For a number of reasons; they held low-ranking positions, the last to be employed and the first to be fired when employment drops off. They usually got lower-paying positions than men; even they were doing the same work. Certainly, great efforts have been made towards equality, but the problem of reaching this goal is becoming increasingly clear all the time. Although women have come a long way, they still have a long way to go for equal opportunity.
    Women in China now receive equal pay for equal work, therefore, they are not dependent on their families as they once were. In the field of medicine ,they are nearly half of all the doctors, there.

    6. Read the following passage, then answer the questions:
    Sport is an important part of today’s society and plays a large role in people’s lives. Now more than ever sport events dominate headlines and athletes have become national heroes.
    From a social standpoint, sport plays a positive role in uniting people from different social backgrounds in support of their favourite team. However, just as sport unites people so it can divide them, as is often demonstrated by crowd violence at football matches. Sport is also an important part of every child’s schooling, as it plays a big role in their physical and mental development. It teaches children how to work as part of a team and co-operate with others, while at the same time, it improves their physical condition. The only drawback to this is that children who are less able to perform well in sports are likely to feel inadequate in comparison to their more gifted classmates, which may affect their self- confidence. From an economic point of view, sports can be very profitable, as it attracts a lot of advertising. On one hand, this creates profit for the sporting industry which allows for improvement and expansion. On the other hand, large sums of money are often paid to event organizers to promote products such as cigarettes, which are harmful to one’s health.

    A. Answer the following questions:
    1. According to the passage, sport has two social effects on people, what are they?
    2. in what way can sport be profitable?
