Understanding the text

Part A: 1. It is important because it contains a great deal of evidence about how people in a society

lived their everyday lives.

2. The Garbage Project is a research project carried out by the University of Arizona. It

studies the garbage in city rubbish dumps to find evidence of the lifestyles of the local

population. It started in 1973 in Tucson, but has now expanded to many other cities

and has built a huge database of information on most aspects of modern American life.

3. The garbage is sorted into a variety of categories (food items, dangerous materials,

personal items etc.).

4. This is because when there is a shortage of something, people try to hoard large supplies

of the item. They may buy too much. This frequently means that the item needs to be

thrown away before it can be used – perhaps because of a shortage of storage space or

because it starts to perish.

5. There are two reasons for this. The first is that people do not want to be seen as wasteful

when it comes to food. They say (and think) they throw away less food than they

actually do. The other reason is that they know they should be eating less junk food

and more healthy food, but in fact the evidence from the garbage is that they eat more

junk food. They are not deliberately lying; they just have an inaccurate impression of

their own eating habits.

6. The Garbage Project can give a clear impression of how people live and behave.

Part B: F, F, T, F, F, T

Corrections

1. It was started in Arizona, but has now expanded to cover many other American cities

and even Mexico City as well.

2. There are too many households in Tucson to collect from each and every one.

Therefore, only a sample of households had their rubbish collected. Also, there is no

time specified in the text, it simply says “over a period of time”.

4. The passage does not specify the quantity of Mexican sugar found – simply that some

was found in Tucson where there was a sugar shortage. There is no evidence that it

tasted bad.

5. The evidence shows that poor people buy smaller packets of food and not the large

economy packets (which more wealthy families bought). They may have wanted to

buy the more economical larger packets but could not afford the larger outlay of

money.

Unit 7

Words to note: 5, 11, 16, 3, 1, 15, 2, 14, 4, 12, 6, 10, 8, 13, 9, 7

Understanding the text:

Part A: 1. Property prices increased by this amount in the 1990s.

2. The year in which Sir Edward Coke said "An Englishman's home is his castle."

3. The number of new homes built each year in Britain.

4. Pots of paint sold by a single British company in one year.

5.Average price of a British home in 2001.

Part B: 1. A castle was a very strong building specifically built to keep the people inside safe and

secure. The expression, therefore, means that the home is a place where the owner feels safe from the outside world and where the outside world cannot enter without his

permission. He is protected and secure there. This is a very common expression used to describe the attitude of English people towards their homes. It may also link with ideas about privacy: many British people like to think of their home as being a prvate place

which others can’t simply just walk into without permission; inside the family they can do as they wish, without being bothered by outsiders.

2. One reason is that the house costs so much to buy that it makes good sense to maintain it

and even important it as much as possible (both to make it worth even more if it is sold and to improve the comfort and space if not). The other reason is that the home is, in a

way, a refection of the owner. How the house looks to other people, tells them

something about the person who owns it – therefore the owner wants to make sure it

reflects a good image of his or her self. The better the houses look, the better the owners feel about their status.

3. It is a loan from a bank or other financial company that is used specifically to buy a house.

It is paid back through monthly payments (with interest) over a number of years – often over as many as 25 years.

4. Before the industrial revolution, the home was much more than simply a house that you

happened to be living in at that time. It had a history of family life, of ancestors, of

relatives and probably of having the same neighbors for generations. After the industrial

revolution, people had to move much more and the home became more of a place that

you were living in at that time and many of the other traditions were lost.

5. Trading up means buying a house that is relatively cheap, keeping it for a few years until

its value has increased (and also the owners’ assets), and then selling it to buy a more expensive property. This process is repeated several times over, each property being

more expensive than the one before. Trading up only works in times of inflation or

progressive increases in property values; if prices were stable over many years, trading up would be unlikely to happen much.

2. Although the Eden Project is in Britain, the plants come from all over the world and

many of them would not grow naturally in Britain but need specially-controlled

greenhouses.

3. It was the first time that Katie had visited the Eden Project.

5. There is no information as to whether or not it is the largest greenhouse in the world.

The Humid Tropics Biome is said to be the largest greenhouse in the world.

who left it to the narrator when she died.

other countries. For this reason, copyright infringement should not be considered illegal.

East) are allowed to abuse copyright more easily than other countries.
