 Peter the Great __________________________. During his reign, Russian nobles were ordered to clip their beards and shorten their robes or risk severe punishment. An admirer of the West, the Russian czar wanted his nobility to look modern and up-to-date. At the czar’s command, the nobles’ wives also had to change their ways. Previously told to stay at home, they were now summoned to court and ordered to remain. To import new ideas from the West, Peter demanded that young Russians go abroad to study, and he invited Europeans to visit Russia. The Europeans he invited could refuse if they chose, but his subjects had no such freedom of choice. Russians who refused to become modernized were beaten and, in some instances, executed.

문 14. 다음 중 문맥상 낱말의 쓰임이 적절하지 않은 것은?
 A new study has suggested that the reason we yawn has nothing to do with tiredness or boredom, but actually works in order to cool down our brains and help us think a little clearer. Like any computer the brain has an optimal working ①temperature and when it becomes too hot yawning helps cool it down, increasing both the heart rate and blood flow while delivering a big gulp of air to the head, cooling the blood in that area. Previously it’s been thought that yawning served a ②respiratory function, helping to wake us up with a jolt of oxygen when we were feeling sluggish, but studies have shown that yawning doesn’t actually increase oxygen levels in the body; something that tallies with the simple observation that we don’t yawn when we exercise, a time when we definitely need more ③oxygen. So why do we yawn when we’re tired? Well, both sleep deprivation and exhaustion are known to ④lower brain temperature, so while it’s true that we yawn to combat lack of sleep, yawns don't make us ‘more awake’ but instead help keep our brains operating at the right temperature.

 At a small weather station he or she may carry on numerous functions such as: making outside weather observations, reading and recording data from weather instruments, checking weather data coming out via a machine, drawing weather maps, plotting the weather, providing forecasts, and advising pilots and other interested parties. At larger stations, the meteorologist may specialize in one or more of these duties, relying to some extent upon computerized data in order to produce a forecast. She or he sends forecasts via teletype or telephone to flight service stations, airline dispatch offices, airports, and to other consumers of weather information. Often the meteorologist advises pilots personally when assisting the pilot in drawing up a flight plan.

② Working conditions of the meteorologist

Pediatric research has shown that antibiotic exposure during a critical window of early development disrupts the bacterial landscape of the gut and permanently reprograms the body's metabolism, setting up a predisposition for obesity. A new study found that short, high-dose pulses of tylosin had the most pronounced and long-lasting effect on weight gain, while amoxicillin had the biggest effect on bone growth-a prerequisite for increased height. The cumulative data could help shape guidelines governing the duration and type of pediatric prescriptions.
① Antibiotic-resistant properties in harmless bacteria may prevent the overweight.
② Antibiotic resistance becomes the major threat to public health.
③ Repeated courses of antibiotics may profoundly alter children's development.
④ Pediatricians may prescribe antibiotics for the treatment of obesity.

문 17. 「tympana」에 대한 설명으로 옳은 것은?
 Cicadas are the only insects capable of producing such a unique and loud sound. Cicadas usually sing during the heat of the day. In addition to attracting a mate, the loud noise actually repels birds. The cicada's song is painful to the birds' ears and interferes with their communication, making it difficult for the birds to hunt in groups. Male cicadas in the same brood will stick together when calling in order to increase the total volume of noise. This reduces the chances of bird predation for the whole brood. Even cicadas must protect themselves from the volume of their own singing. Both male and female cicadas have a pair of large, mirror-like membranes called the tympana, which function as ears. The tympana are connected to an auditory organ by a short tendon. When a male sings, the tendon retracts, creasing the tympana so that it won't be damaged by the sound.
① They are used to make sound.
② Birds’ communication is interfered with the tympana.
③ They look like ears.
④ Cicadas are protected from their own sound by the tympana.

 To generations of Americans, baseball is the national pastime. And football is the all-American sport that keeps millions of fans glued to the television or cheering in stadiums every weekend during the fall. But in fact no sport is more thoroughly American than the stickball game of lacrosse. Sometimes called the fastest game on two feet, lacrosse is a combination of soccer and hockey in which players use sticks with loose netting on one end to catch, carry, and pass a ball in an effort to hurl it into an opponent’s goal. Originated by Native Americans long before Europeans set foot in the New World, early versions of the game were part religious ritual and part military training for young tribesmen. Today, it’s just plain fun for players of all ages, which has made it one of the fastest growing sports in America and increasingly worldwide. Yet, inexplicably, the sport has not been recognized as an official sport in the Olympics since 1908.
① Lacrosse is officially introduced to the Olympics in 1908.
② Still, lacrosse is only popular among American people.
③ Lacrosse is invented by early European settlers in the American continent.
④ Lacrosse is similar to hockey in the use of a kind of stick to play with.

문 19. 다음 글의 제목으로 가장 알맞은 것은?

The condition was prompted by a short exercise where subjects were encouraged to write sentences about why they deserved various positive outcomes.

③ Benefit of being creative
④ Entitlement driven by creativity

문 20. 다음 글의 내용과 일치하지 않는 것은? 
 If you look in a soil pit or on a roadside cut, you will see various layers in the soil. These layers are called soil horizons. The arrangement of these horizons in a soil is known as a soil profile. Soil scientists observe and describe soil profiles and soil horizons to classify and interpret the soil for various uses. Soil horizons differ in a number of easily seen soil properties such as color, texture, structure, and thickness. Other properties are less visible. Properties, such as chemical and mineral content, consistence, and reaction require special laboratory tests. All these properties are used to define types of soil horizons. Soil scientists use the capital letters O, A, B, C, and E to identify the master horizons, and lowercase letters for distinctions of these horizons. Most soils have three major horizons -- the surface horizon (A), the subsoil (B), and the substratum (C). Some soils have an organic horizon (O) on the surface, but this horizon can also be buried. The master horizon, E, is used for subsurface horizons that have a significant loss of minerals (eluviation). Hard bedrock, which is not soil, uses the letter R.
① Mainly soils are composed of the surface horizon, the subsoil and the substratum.
② O, A, B, C, and E are used for classifying the master horizons and their distinctions.
③ How to use the soil can be known by studying soil horizons and soil profiles.
④ We cannot see all of the soil properties easily.
