All around the world, there are many endangered animals, largely because of human progress. As the world’s population grows, humans move into new areas, create more pollution, and use more natural resources. This all puts pressure on animals, which cannot really compete with humans. An excellent example of this would be the case of the leatherback sea turtle.
At 6.5 meters long, and up to 600 kilograms, the leatherback is the largest turtle on Earth. It is also one of the most endangered. Scientists do not know the exact number of leatherbacks because they spend their entire lives at sea. This makes them very difficult to count. But female leatherbacks come on land to lay their eggs. From the number of nests that scientists find, they can estimate the number of turtles. The numbers do not show a good future for the leatherback. At one beach, scientists counted over 10,000 egg nests in 1954. In 1993, there were only 50 nests at the same beach. Scientists think that the leatherback population is perhaps only 1% of what it was just 50 years ago. Human development over the last 50 years is undoubtedly the reason for this.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct word (s) for each of the blanks from 46 to 50.
The diseases connected to smoking are a big problem. Doctors think that the annual medical cost for lung cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses connected to smoking is between 12 and 35 million pounds. And smoking costs society money in other ways. Between 27 and 61 billion pounds are spent each year on sick days when people don’t go to work, on wages that you don’t get when you don’t go to work, and on work lost at the company when you are sick.
This money counts the wages from people who die of cancer at young age and stop paying taxes. This does not count fire started by cigarettes, which kill fifteen hundred people yearly and injure another four thousand. Smoking costs every man, woman and child in the UK from one hundred and ten to two hundred and fifty pounds yearly in insurance cost, that comes to one hundred and sixty to four hundred and ten pounds. If everyone stopped smoking, a family of four could have up to one thousand six hundred and forty founds a year more. Smoking will also cause other problems. People who don’t smoke will live longer and so they will take money from the government when they are old. But they will also work for more years and pay more taxes.
In the end, the value of a non-smoking nation is not in pounds. The good health of people is the true value for us all.
