Five hundred years ago in Milan, Italy, one of the most famous pieces of art in human history was completed. It shows Jesus and his followers sitting behind a long table covered with food, shortly before he was crucified. Gathering around Jesus, his followers react in shock to the news that one of them will betray him. This scene, painted by Leonardo ad Vinci, is called The Last Supper.

The Last Supper took da Vinci three years to complete. In painting this masterpiece, da Vinci presented the anger, fear, and doubt felt by the 12 followers of Jesus. To the left is Judas, drawing back into the shadows in surprise that his plan is known. In the center of the painting sits Jesus himself. The window behind him shines like a halo. It gives light to the scene, just as Jesus gives peace to his followers. The expression on his face is calm as if he has already forgiven the one who will betray him.

The outline of Jesus forms a triangle. There are also three windows, and his followers are sitting in four groups of three. The number represents the three sides of the Christian God : the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Da Vinci seemed to show that God’s love for humans is stable and will last forever.

Today, The Last Supper can still be viewed in Milan, though its colors have faded away after such a long time. However, the themes of finding love and hopes in times of trouble are just as strong today as they ever were.

41. According to the passage, The Last Supper ____________.

(A) was created 12 centuries ago. (B) is damaged beyond repair (C) is currently on display in Italy (D) is da Vinci’s most famous painting 42. Which is NOT shown in the painting ?

(A) Jesus surrounded by his followers. (B) Jesus sitting calmly in front of a window.

(C) Jesus pointing a finger at Judas. (D) Jesus’ followers seated in four groups.

43. What is said about the number three ?

(A) It is an unlucky number in the West. (B) It is a holy number in all religions.

(C) It represents the Earth’s three main elements. (D) It stands for God as three in one.

44. What can be inferred about da Vinci from the passage ?

(A) He was very religious. (B) He was a talented artist.

(C) He was a native Italian. (D) He was famous during his time.

Doctors around the world advise people to eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. We all know these foods are good for us, but recent studies show that they may be even more beneficial than previously imagined, and all because of a chemical

(4)

called anthocyanin.

With every breath you take, you absorb oxygen. Most of the oxygen you breathe in is used up, but some oxygen slips away and gets stuck inside your body. This turns into what are called “free radicals,” which move through your body and cause harm wherever they go.

Luckily, nature has provided us with a small yet effective way to defend against free radicals. Anthocyanin, which is what gives blueberries their color, is a powerful chemical called an antioxidant. Antioxidants bond with the stray oxygen particles and help you body flush these particles away. This helps reverse the effects of aging.

A group of scientists at Tufts University did an experiment where rats were fed blueberry-rich diets. They found that age- related balance and coordination problems were reversed in the animals. The rats also had improved spatial learning and short term memory. Encouraged, the same researchers began to conduct tests on humans. The subjects who ate a cup of blueberries a day had motor skills that were five to six percent better.

Eating blueberries over long periods of time improves communication between neurons in the brain. Therefore, eating blueberries can improve short-term memory. In addition, blueberries relax your blood vessels, reducing your risk of heart disease.

Anthocyanin can be found in many different fruits, but by far the highest concentration is in blueberries. So, be sure to hit the fruit section of the supermarket before your diet is a surefire way to stop yourself from getting old too quickly.

45. According to the passage, free radicals ___________.

(A) are stray particles in the air. (B) are a by-product of oxygen consumption (C) will do good to the human body (D) have a direct link to lung disease

46. What can the chemical “anthocyanin” do ?

(A) Make our skin fairer. (B) Help our body absorb free radicals.

(C) Combat aging problems. (D) Speed up the maturity of blueberries.

47. What was the purpose of the experiment mentioned in paragraph 4 ? (A) To see what fruits can work against the effects of aging.

(B) To discover the causes of brain disease.

(C) To see if blueberries are beneficial to rats as well.

(D) To find out the health benefits of blueberries.

48. Where is the passage most likely to appear ?

(A) In a medical journal. (B) In an orchard brochure.

(C) On a fashion website. (D) In a farming magazine.
