Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the  correct answer to each of the questions from 12 to 16. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered new ways of learning. All around the world, educational institutions are looking toward online learning platforms to continue with the process of educating  students. 

Online learning offers teachers an efficient way to deliver lessons to students. Online learning has a  number of tools such as videos, PDFs, podcasts, and teachers can use all these tools as parts of their  lesson plans. By extending the lesson plans beyond traditional textbooks to include online resources,  teachers are able to become more efficient educators. 

Online education allows students to attend classes from any location of their choice. It also allows  schools to reach out to a more extensive network of students, instead of being restricted by geographical  boundaries. Additionally, online lectures can be recorded, archived, and shared for future reference. This  allows students to access the learning material at a time of their comfort. 

Another advantage of online learning is reduced financial costs. Online education is far more affordable  as compared to physical learning. This is because online learning eliminates the cost points of student  transportation, student meals, and most importantly, real estate. Additionally, all the course or study  materials are available online, thus creating a paperless learning environment which is more affordable,  while also being beneficial to the environment. 

Every student has a different learning journey and a different learning style. Some students are visual  learners, while some students prefer to learn through audio. Similarly, some students thrive in the  classroom, and others are solo learners who get distracted by large groups. The online learning system,  with its range of options and resources, can be personalized in many ways. It is the best way to create a  perfect learning environment suited to the needs of each student.

A. The best learning environment

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the  correct answer to each of the questions from 39 to 45. 

While watching sports on TV, the chances are children will see professional players cheating, having  tantrums, fighting, or abusing officials. In addition, it's highly likely that children will be aware of well known cases of sportspeople being caught using drugs to improve their performance. The danger of all  this is that it could give children the idea that winning is all that counts and you should win at all costs.  Good behavior and fair play aren't the message that comes across. Instead, it looks as if cheating and bad  behavior are reasonable ways of getting what you want. This message is further bolstered by the fact that  some of these sportspeople acquire enormous fame and wealth, making it seem they are being  handsomely rewarded either despite or because of their bad behavior. 

What can parents do about this? They can regard sport on television as an opportunity to discuss attitudes  and behaviors with their children. When watching sports together, if parents see a player swearing at the  referee, they can get the child's opinion on that behavior and discuss whether a player's skill is more  important than their behavior. Ask what the child thinks the player's contribution to the team is. Point out  that no player can win a team game on their own, so it's important for members to work well together. 

Another thing to focus on is what the commentators say. Do they frown on bad behavior from players,  think it's amusing or even consider it's a good thing? What about the officials? If they let players get away  with a clear foul, parents can discuss with children whether this is right and what effect it has on the  game. Look too at the reactions of coaches and managers. Do they accept losing with good grace or scowl  and show a bad attitude? Parents can use this to talk about attitudes to winning and losing and to remind  children that both are part of sport. 

However, what children learn from watching sports is by no means all negative and parents should make  sure they accentuate the positives too. They should emphasize to children the high reputation that well behaved players have, not just with their teammates but also with spectators and the media. They can  focus on the contribution made by such players during a game, discussing how valuable they are in the  team. In the interviews after a game, point out to a child that the well-behaved sportspeople don't gloat  when they win or sulk when they lose. And parents can stress how well these people conduct themselves  in their personal lives and the good work they do for others when not playing. In other words, parents  should get their children to focus on the positive role models, rather than the antics of the badly behaved  but often more publicized players. 

Question 39. The word "accentuate" in paragraph 4 can be best replaced by _____ .

A. reduce

B. damage

C. delete

D. highlight

Question 40. According to paragraph 1. misconduct exhibited by players may lead children to think that  _____. 

A. it brings about undesirable results 

B. it is an acceptable way to win the game

Question 41. The word "bolstered” in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to _____. 

A. represented

B. reinforced

C. inspired

D. prevented

Question 42. The word "They" in paragraph 4 refers to _____. 

A. spectators

B. children

C. teammates

D. parents

Question 43. Which of the following about sport is NOT mentioned in the passage?

A. Misconduct from sportspeople may go unpunished despite the presence of officials.

B. Many sportspeople help others so as to project good images of themselves 

C. Reactions of coaches and managers when their teams lose a game may be of educational value.

D. A well-behaved player enjoys a good reputation among his teammates, spectators and the media.

A. Different attitudes toward bad behavior in sport 

B. The importance of team spirit in sport 

C. Moral lessons for children from watching sports 

D. The influence of model sportspeople on children 

Question 45. According to paragraph 2 what should parents teach their children through watching sports?  

A. A team with badly-behaved players will not win a game. 

B. Collaboration is fundamental to any team's success. 

C. Cheating is frowned upon by the majority of players. 

D. A player's performance is of greater value than his behavior
