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 42. Thomas Edison is famous for inventing the light bulb. But not many people know that in the 1920s he invented the first employment test to recruit staff for his research laboratory. It had questions in it like, ‘Who killed President Lincoln?’ and ‘Where is the Sargasso Sea?’. It was difficult to answer the questions and only a few people managed to pass the test. Nowadays we would ask: Is it really necessary to know things like this if you want to work for an inventor? Now, a hundred years later, employment tests are still used by companies, but are very different in what they test. The way that companies recruit new staff has also changed. One recent trend in recruitment is ‘gamification’. Gamification, in general, means using characteristics of games (eg scoring points, competing with others and rules of play) to add some fun to situations that are usually more serious. One of the first companies which has used gamification to recruit new staff is the cosmetics company, L’Oréal. L’Oréal created an online computer game called Reveal, where you try to solve real-life problems in a virtual environment. The best players were invited for an interview. Another company, the international hotel group Marriott, developed a Facebook game, My Marriott HotelTM to attract young people to a career in the hotel industry. In the game, players managed a virtual hotel kitchen. The game could be played in English, Spanish, French, Arabic and Mandarin. It was designed to recruit staff in markets outside the USA. The game was a great success and brought thousands of people to the Marriott Facebook career page. Experts believe gamification is likely to become so common in recruitment that perhaps we should all train as games designers!

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 31 to 35 Marine ecotourism focuses specifically on activities that take place on the coast or in the ocean . It includes activities like eco-friendly boating, dolphin and whale watching, snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing, but in a sustainable way and with an emphasis on education. One of the most popular forms of marine ecotourism is whale watching. Whales are worth more alive than dead these days, after decades — maybe even centuries — of whaling. While commercial whaling is banned in most countries, Japan, Norway and Iceland have continued the practice through finding loopholes or just rebelling against the international law. A recent National Geographic article discussed the fact that the Japanese, for example, are eating much less whale meat than in the past. They’re also spending a lot more time whale watching. Mexico is another example of this. The shark watching revenue in the Gulf of California region represents more than half the value from shark accommodations in the country. Ecotourism has become a much-needed source of employment in the Gulf of California (and other coastal regions) because of warming ocean temperatures, extreme weather events that are taking place more often than they had in the past, and declining fish stocks. In Newfoundland, Canada’s main sealing province, over 1.3 million people participated in whale watching. That contributed to nearly $20 million to the local economy and is seen as a possible alternative to the sealing economy. Ecotourism Australia says that “ecotourism has rocketed from an unknown entity to global phenomenon in the last 30 years and nature-based tourism already makes up 75 percent of the international tourism market.” It’s an example of knowing better and doing better, and can make a positive impact on conservation efforts on the coast and in the ocean.
