Question 1
Oscar Wilde was born in Dublin in 1854, to parents who were both prominent citizens. In her youth, Wilde's mother had achieved a transatlantic reputation as the author of inspiring nationalistic poetry, published under the name of ''Speranza''. Wilde's father, William, knighted by the British queen in 1864, was a medical specialist in complaints of the eye, who, although a staunch Protestant, showed his nationalism in collecting and preparing for print tales of Irish folklore. Oscar Wilde attended public school at Portora Royal School and gained undergraduate degrees in classic at Dublin's Trinity College and Oxford's Magdalen College. As a student, he showed promise not simply as a linguist, but as a witty exponent of the ideas and philosophy of life which he found in the writings of the ancients. One day, at the university, when challenged about his ambitions in life, Wilde replied prophetically: ''I'll be a poet, a writer, a dramatist, somehow or other. I'll be famous, and if not famous, I'll be notorious.'' When I read about Oscar Wilde's life in detail, you will notice that he achieved all his ambitions about which he had dreamed in his university years successfully. 19.

Question 4
Although most things in Darie'n are cheap, travel is not. One needs substantial amounts of time or money, preferably both. For two reasons: it is not easy to get around, and it is not safe. It is not easy because, south of Yaviza, there are no roads. It is unsafe because of the Colombian civil war. Neither the Panamanian nor do the Colombian governments have control over the border, so guerrillas, paramilitaries and bandits freely cross back and forth. Despite their lack of control over the border area, Panama's police force is reasonably professional and not particularly corrupt. Unfortunately, for most visitors this only makes travel more difficult, as the police periodically close regions of Darie'n to foreigners. Knowing they have no control over certain regions, they'd rather foreign travellers did not go at all to avoid the chance of kidnappings. 22. It may be understood from the passage that..... . .
A
governments of both Panama and Colombia have strict control over the border, so people can wander around freely
B
it's really difficult to travel in Dafie'n since there are few roads
C
Darie'n is one of the cheapest places in the world in terms of accommodation and travel
D
Darie'n can be insecure for foreigners because of the political fe| unrest in the region
