In 2014 the islanders of the Isle of Head chose altogether to stop government interference on their small island. They decided to purchase the whole island as a consortium now known as 'The Isle of Head Organisation', or TIHO for short. They now, like many other islands off the west coast, can set their own standard of living using a village tribunal system. In fact, this was what they were after originally. This way of living is not unfamiliar, but what they have decided to do on their island is somewhat quirky.
Head currently has limited access to the mainland and as the population shrank as too did the number of visitors; consequently, there is no need for frequent ferries. Although, it's not unknown for there to be multiple sailings at the weekend which people like greatly for the ease of access. That combined with a journey time of just over 25 minutes on calm seas and sometimes over 1-hour per sailing on other days has meant that the service operates on a 'need to' basis and sails only once there are enough passengers waiting to make the crossing worthwhile.
The village has several highly skilled citizens which has proved useful as they have decided that they will, in the most part, be self-sufficient. Central to this philosophy is the principle that they will educate their own primary and secondary school pupils and that the three 20-year olds will study together communicating through the web with colleges and universities elsewhere. It has been raised as a potential issue and there is an inquiry ongoing to check that the education the islanders get is of a suitable standard.
The Islanders don't _________.
A happen to need any books
B want any help from the mainland
C desire the usage of mobile connections
D think they need any more ferries

For more than ten years, there has been agreements with countries such as Switzerland that have been keen to have "brain exchange" programmes with India. In the past it was assumed that both or all countries that have signed agreements for cooperation in education management and science and technology could benefit from sharing their brightest and best minds. In general, these programmes have led to increased development for diversifying cooperation in economic and other sectors as well.
Of late there has been a move toward the supply of funding for international travel and engagement for younger and younger people. There are obvious issues when asking minors under the age of 18 to study abroad. There have been discussions about the ethics and coordination of the possibility of transplanting; not just moving the student but also their entire support network. People have put a whole range of ideas forward as to why being educationally mobile should be an option and an almost equal amount of negative reasons for students to stay in their home countries.
One thing that is definite is that even though there seems to be largescale competition throughout the world for resources, jobs and security. There is no doubt that the last decade has shown that there is a strong correlation between a country's success and its educational or knowledge based ties. This relationship is clearly beneficial but the issues concerning the answers to a range of questions that are now just being asked about the permissibility of allowing "brain exchanges" earlier and earlier are yet to be answered fully.
Everyone agrees, ___________.
A there are benefits of this type of programme
B it is a lot more than just education at stake
C we can all make children work harder
D to lend more money to develop countries who need better jobs
The answer is [ a]
Read the following story and answer the questions that follow :
The milkmaid and her pail
A milkmaid was on her way to the market. On her head she carried a large pail of milk. As she walked along she thought of all the money she would have as soon as she sold the milk. "I shall buy hens from Farmer Brown," she thought, "and they will lay eggs every day. I will sell the eggs to the parson's wife. She will pay me well. With the money from the eggs, I will buy myself a new frock and bonnet. What colour shall they be? I think green - a lovely green, for that colour becomes me best. When I go to market, I will wear my new clothes. All the young men will want to speak to me, of course, but I shall pretend not to see them. When they follow me, I shall walk proudly on. I'll toss my head-like this." And with that, she tossed her head. The pail slipped off from her head, and the milk spilled all over the ground.
The milkmaid brought her empty pail and her sad tale home to her mother. "Ah, my daughter," said her mother, "Do not count your chickens before they are hatched."
Where was the milkmaid going?
A To sell eggs to the parson's wife.
B To buy hens from Farmer Brown.
C To the market to sell a pail of milk.
D To the market to buy a lovely dress.
