Read passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to the following each of the questions. 

People travel for a lot of reasons: Some tourists go to see battlefields or religious shrines. Others are looking for culture, or simply want to have their pictures taken in front of famous places. But most European tourists are looking for a sunny beach to lie on.

Northern Europeans are willing to pay a lot of money and put up with a lot of inconveniences for the sun because they have so little of it. Residents of cities like London, Copenhagen, and Amsterdam spend a tot of their winter in the dark because the days are so short, and much of the rest of the year in the rain. This is the reason why the Mediterranean has always attracted them. Every summer, more than 25 million people travel to Mediterranean resorts and beaches for their vacation. They all come for the same reason, sun!

The huge crowds mean lots of money for the economies of Mediterranean countries. Italy’s 30,000 hotels are booked solid every summer. And 13 million people camp out on French beaches, parks and roadsides. Spain’s long sandy coastline attracts more people than anywhere else. 37 million tourists visit yearly, or one tourist for every person living in Spain.

But there are signs that the area is getting more tourists than it can handle. The Mediterranean is already one of the most polluted seas on earth. And with increased tourism, it’s getting worse. The French can’t figure out what to do with all the garbage left by campers around St. Tropez. And in many places, swimming is dangerous because of pollution.

None of this, however, is spoiling anyone’s fun. The Mediterranean gets more popular every year with tourists. Obviously, they don’t go there for clean water and solitude. They tolerate traffic jams and seem to like crowded beaches. They don’t even mind the pollution. No matter how dirty the water is, the coastline still looks beautiful. And as long as the sun shines, it’s still better than sitting in the cold rain in Berlin, London, or Oslo.

Question 17: In paragraph 2, cities like London, Copenhagen, and Amsterdam are mentioned _______.

A. to prove that they have got more tourism than they handle.

B. to tell us how wealthy their people are.

C. to suggest that these cities lack places of historic interest and scenic beauty.

D. to show that they are not good cities in terms of geography and climate.

Question 18: According  to  the  passage,  which  of  the  following factors might spoil the tourists’ fun at Mediterranean resorts and beaches?

A. Polluted water        B. Traffic jams 

C. Rainy weather        D. Crowded buses 

Question 19: The writer seems to imply that Europeans travel mostly for the reason that ______.

A. they want to see historic remains or religious spots.

B. they would like to take pictures in front of famous sites.

C. they wish to escape from the cold, dark and rainy days back at home.

D. they are interested in different cultural traditions and social customs.

Question 20: The latter half of the last sentence in paragraph 3, “or one tourist for every person living in Spain” means _____.

A. every Spanish is visited by a tourist every year.

B. every person living in Spain has to take care of a tourist annually.

C. every  year  almost  as  many  tourists  visit  Spain  as  there  are  people  living  in  that country.

D. all the 37 million people living in Spain are tourists.

Question 21: The word “tolerate” in paragraph 5 is closest in meaning to ______.

A. reject                      B. endure

C. exclude                   D. neglect

B. seeming to be hard to book

C. having less people than normal
