Do you play video games? If so, you aren't alone. Video games are becoming more common and are increasingly enjoyed by adults. The average age of gamers has been increasing. Changing technology also means that more people are exposed to video games. Many committed gamers play on desktop computers or consoles, but a new breed of casual gamers has emerged, who play on smartphones and tablets at spare moments throughout the day, like their morning commute. So, we know that video games are an increasingly common form of entertainment, but do they have any effect on our brains and behavior?

Over the years, the media have made various sensationalist claims about video games and their effect on our health and happiness. "Games have sometimes been praised or demonized, often without real data backing up those claims. Moreover, gaming is a popular activity, so everyone seems to have strong opinions on the topic," says Marc Palaus, first author on the review, recently published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.

Palaus and his colleagues wanted to see if any trends had emerged from the research to date concerning how video games affect the structure and activity of our brains. They collected the results from 116 scientific studies, 22 of which looked at structural changes in the brain and 100 of which looked at changes in brain functionality and/or behavior.

Studies show that playing video games can change how our brains perform, and even their structure. For example, playing video games affects our attention, and some studies found that gamers show improvements in several types of attention, such as sustained attention or selective attention. The brain regions involved in attention are also more efficient in gamers and require less activation to sustain attention on demanding tasks.

1. What can be inferred from the passage above?

(A) Gamers are more likely to have brain damage due to the change in their brain structures.

(D) The writer explains how video games change the brain’s performance.

(E) The writer shows that video games alter the brain’s performance and structure.

Jawaban: E

3. Why does the writer use the word "sensationalist" in paragraph 2?

(A) Because video games are getting more popular among adults

(B) Because games have been praised and demonized

(C) Because games have been covered a lot by the media

Stretching more than 2.300 kilometers along Queensland's coastline and covering 35 million hectares, the Great Barrier is the world's largest coral reef, and probably the richest. More than 1.500 species of fish, 4.000 species of mollusks, 400 species of sponge and 300 species of hard

corals live here.

The reef is Queensland's first world heritage area. It is very importance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with significant cultural sites on many of its islands. The reef is very important in other ways. The World Heritage Area is worth some $5.4 billion to the Australian economy. As many as $3.5 billion of that amount goes into the local towns and communities bordering the reef.

Recent research published by the Australian Institute of Marine Science has found two primary factors that have caused a very significant decline in coral cover over the last 30 years or so. They are extreme weather and the crown-of-thorns starfish. The same research is telling us that coral cover north of Cook town is generally stable, but the southern area is experiencing major losses.

The reef's complexities are well described in the 2013 Scientific Consensus Statement. This science contributed to the updated Reef Water Quality Protection Plan (Reef Plan). The plan is a state and federal initiative designed to stop and reverse the decline in reef water quality. The consensus statement confirms that the major cause of coral cover loss is extreme weather events, such as cyclones.

Clearly, we are not able to influence such events. The second Great Barrier Reef Report Card confirms that management change and water quality improvements are tracking positively, but more needs to be done. The report was released in July 2013 and based on 2011 Paddock to Reef Monitoring Program data. The Queensland and Australian governments, together with industry, regional bodies, and conservation groups, will continue working hard to maintain progress towards Reef Plan targets. We want to be sure that the reef has the best possible opportunity to recover from cyclone damage and crown-of-thorns starfish attacks.

8. What can be inferred from the passage?

(A) The Great Barrier Reef is under the threat of nature.

(B) The Australian economy is attracted by cyclones and starfish.

(C) The other main resource influencing the reef is seawater quality.

(D) Scientists expect the reef has the power to recover naturally.

(E) The decline of the Great Barrier Reef initiates research on climate.

Jawaban: A

9. This sentence means.......

(A) the Great Barrier Reef is future legacy of the Queensland people

(B) optimum exploration of the reef should benefit the Queensland government

(C) coral reef should be preserved for the purpose of the future legacy

(D) preserving the Great Barrier Reef becomes the world's responsibility

(E) local government are given responsibility to manage the reef benefits

Jawaban: A

10. Based on the passage, what does the author's bias deal with?

(A) Collaboration between scientists and the Australian government.

(B) Australian geographical heritage in a form of coral reef.

(C)National economic value of the Great Barrier Reef

(D) Efforts to save the reef from natural destruction

(B) explaining the status of the Great Barrier Reef
