PassageGO TO QUESTION

Read passage carefully and then answer the questions about it. For each question, decide on the basis of the passage which one of the choices best answers the question.

  1. Although recycling has taken place in various
  2. forms for some time, today we are being asked to
  3. regard recycling as not only an important, but even
  4. a necessary measure.
  5. Recycling, in its broadest sense, refers to the
  6. remaking of waste products and other used
  7. materials for practical purposes. For example, an
  8. old soda bottle can be returned, washed, and used
  9. as a bottle again, or it can be ground down and its
  10. glass can be employed for another useful purpose.
  11. Since fixing up old things is often cheaper than
  12. making brand new ones, this saves money. More
  13. importantly, it saves resources and reduces the
  14. amount of waste produced.
  15. Businesses have been performing large-scale
  16. recycling for some time, based primarily on the goal
  17. of saving money. However, the amount of residential
  18. waste, that is, the waste produced at home, has been
  19. steadily increasing, and the role of the individual in
  20. the recycling campaign has been seriously
  21. underemphasized. Although it is true that we, as
  22. individuals, cannot reduce the overall amount of
  23. waste significantly or save large amounts of money
  24. and resources on our own, taken collectively, we can
  25. have an important impact. Our increased efforts
  26. toward recycling can have a dramatic effect on the
  27. future availability of resources and the condition of
  28. the environment. It is our duty to ourselves and to
  29. our fellow human beings to pitch in and help protect
  30. what remains of it.
