3 MISSION TST FOR TH GR OURS IN MIIN N SURGRY cademic Year 2012/2013 Thinking Skills 1 pproximately 1 in 14 men over the age of 50 has prostate cancer. The level of 'prostate specific antigen' (PS) is used as a preliminary screening test for prostate cancer. 7% of men with prostate cancer do not have a high level of PS. These results are known as 'false negatives'. 75% of those men with a high level of PS do not have cancer. These results are known as 'false positives'. If a man over 50 has a normal level of PS, what are the chances that he has prostate cancer? 0.7% 0.5% 5% 7% 25% 2 Three friends, dam, avid and Sue are sharing out a bag of marbles. To do this more quickly, they take 10 marbles each time and repeat until the bag is empty. There are not enough marbles for Sue to take 10 on the last turn. dam and avid then give her two marbles each and they all have the same. How many marbles did Sue take on the last turn?

4 3 I wish to repaint the walls of my garage. It is 3 metres high, 4 metres wide and 9 metres deep. I shall not need to paint the electronic door which covers one 3 x 4 metre end, nor the window, which is 2 metres wide and 1 metre high, nor the rear door which is 1 metre wide and 2 metres high. 1 litre of paint covers 3 square metres. How many 1 litre tins will be needed to complete the painting? Tom shared out some money between his three children in the ratio 5:3:2. He later had an extra 6 which he gave to the child who received the least originally. This meant that the money had been shared into one large and two equal smaller shares. How much money in total did Tom give to the three children? Three months ago, Jane had 5 times as many Vs as uncan. Since then they have both bought 12 more Vs. Jane now has twice as many as uncan. How many Vs does Jane have now? ULS 2012 Page 2 / 40

5 6 There are four rivers in olandia, each claiming to be the longest. Tourist board brochures in the regions containing the rivers, make the following statements: 1. The ile is shorter than the ubba. 2. The ongo is shorter than the sun. 3. The sun is longer than the ubba. If all of the above are correct, which one of the following statements is definitely true? The sun is longer than the ile. The ile is shorter than the ongo. The ubba is longer than the ongo. The ile is longer than the sun. The ongo is longer than the ubba. 7 The table below shows the number of people who voted for each candidate in the recent school election: Name lison Harold Kevin Peter Rachel Votes When drawing a pie chart of the results one of the numbers above was not read correctly (the other four were correct). The angles were calculated as degrees, 90 degrees, 75.6 degrees, 56.7 degrees, and 24.3 degrees. Whose score was copied incorrectly when the pie chart was constructed? Kevin lison Harold Peter Rachel ULS 2012 Page 3 / 40

6 8 In a children's story there are three types of monster, ongles, rannies and ervies. Some, but not all, ongles are rannies and all rannies are ervies. Which one of the following is definitely NOT true? No ervies are ongles. Some ervies are both ongles and rannies. Some ervies are neither ongles nor rannies. Some ongles are ervies. ll rannies are either ongles or ervies or both. 9 The ingredients list on a tin of baked beans reads as follows (in order of descending weight): Navy beans (51%) Water Sugar Tomato puree (4.5%) Modified maize starch Salt Natural flavourings Onion powder Paprika What is the maximum percentage of water the tin could contain? 40.0% 17.5% 22.2% 44.5% 49.0% ULS 2012 Page 4 / 40

7 10 regular train service operates between Jayford and Kayton, a 16 km journey which takes 19 minutes. The trains travel at a constant speed of 60 km per hour in both directions except through a tunnel, where they are limited to 20 km per hour. Trains travelling towards Kayton enter the tunnel 4 km after setting off from Jayford. How long is the tunnel? 1.5 km 0.5 km 2.5 km 3.5 km 4.5 km 11 In preparation for my holiday in olandia last June, I changed 300 into olandian dollars every pay day from January to May (I am paid monthly). The exchange rates were as follows: January February March pril May 1= \$2.74 \$2.79 \$2.76 \$2.83 \$2.81 How many more olandian dollars would I have received altogether if, instead, I had changed the whole 1500 in May? ULS 2012 Page 5 / 40

8 12 fter a long period of dry weather, the water container in my garden contained only 28% of its capacity of water. Last week's rain, however, increased the amount of water in the container by 25%, and according to the weather forecast, a similar amount of rain is expected to fall this coming week. If, as expected, the container gets the same amount of rainwater this coming week as it did last week, what percentage of its capacity will it then contain? 42.00% 43.75% 60.00% 66.25% 78.00% 13 student gives his friends small, short-term loans for periods of 1, 2 or 3 weeks after which time they must be repaid in full. He always lends on a Friday afternoon. He starts with 120 and loans out the following amounts each week: Week mount What is the smallest amount of money he has by the end of the 4th Friday? ULS 2012 Page 6 / 40

9 14 The following information appears on a 200g packet of biscuits: How many biscuits are there in a full packet? The 100W light bulb (cost 0.60) is not going to be used anymore and is being replaced with the 20W (cost 3) low energy light bulb. If electricity is charged at 0.15 per kwh, for how many hours must the low energy bulb be used in order for the lower cost of running it to exactly compensate for its higher initial cost?

12 20 One radioactive substance, P, is gradually changed by radioactive decay into another, Q. Q itself decays into a third substance, R, which does not decay. The graphs below show how the quantities of P, Q and R varied with time during an experiment. What do the graphs 1, 2 and 3 represent? 1:R 2:Q 3:P 1:P 2:Q 3:R 1:Q 2:P 3:R 1:Q 2:R 3:P 1:R 2:P 3:Q 21 Modern technology has given us the power to use renewable natural resources faster than they can be replaced. The decline of fish numbers provides one example of the way in which modern technology can rapidly use up a natural resource. Modern fishing ships equipped with fish detecting systems and huge nets can gather up vast quantities of fish quicker than the sea can renew them. ecause high technology gives us such harmful powers, we must learn to use the renewable resources of the earth carefully, rather than waste them. Which one of the following best expresses the main conclusion of the above passage? Humans must preserve renewable resources by learning how to use them carefully. Fish need to be carefully protected to prevent them from being destroyed. Modern technology simply takes from the environment and destroys its resources. Most people are unaware of the damaging effects of modern technology. Fishing is now a serious threat to the world's environment and should cease. ULS 2012 Page 10 / 40

13 22 Shower gel is now used much more than soap when people take a shower. This is unfortunate. Shower gel requires much more packaging which means more rubbish. There is also a tendency for people to use more of it when washing in comparison with soap. Therefore more natural resources are consumed in the manufacturing process than would be if people used only soap. So, the trend towards shower gel is bad for the environment. This is because it creates more problems of waste disposal and uses up more resources than soap. We should make people more aware of the environmental impact of such simple decisions. Which one of the following is an expression of the main conclusion of the above argument? People should be made more aware of the environmental consequences of choosing shower gel. It is unfortunate that shower gel has become more popular than soap. The manufacture of shower gel is more wasteful of natural resources. The increased popularity of shower gel is bad for the environment. The use of shower gel increases the problems of waste disposal. 23 The hief xecutive of the Royal Opera House has recently offered 100 seats on any Monday night for 10. Normally these seats can cost up to 175 therefore it represents a considerable saving. However the hopes of the hief xecutive that this will attract a broader audience are likely to be disappointed. It is not the financial costs that put people off opera - it is simply that they do not like it. Many young people spend considerable sums of money going to premier football matches or 'clubbing'. This suggests, therefore, that the problem of attracting a more diverse audience to opera is more a question of culture than economics. Which one of the following is an expression of the main conclusion of the above argument? The 'cheap seats' policy is unlikely to attract a more diverse audience. The intention of the 'cheap seats' policy is that it will attract a broader audience. ttracting a broader audience for opera is a problem of taste rather than expense. Many young people do not like the idea of going to the opera. considerable amount of money can be saved as a result of this offer. ULS 2012 Page 11 / 40

14 24 Health services should find better ways to take blood pressure readings for patients thought to be suffering from high blood pressure (hypertension). One third of patients thought to have high blood pressure may actually have 'white coat' hypertension, according to a new study. 'White coat' hypertension means that a patient's blood pressure is high at the doctor's surgery, probably due to anxiety, but normal in everyday life. In the study, patients said to have hypertension had their blood pressure measured in a normal environment; more than one third of these patients' blood pressures were in the normal range when they were at home or participating in their usual activities. It is worrying that patients are being treated with drugs with some negative side effects to reduce high blood pressure which they do not actually have. Which one of the following best expresses the conclusion of the argument above? More effective ways of measuring blood pressure are needed. 'White coat' hypertension has no medical significance. nxiety is the most common cause of high blood pressure. Two thirds of patients said to have hypertension are being wrongly treated. Health services could save money currently spent on unnecessarily prescribed drugs. 25 Ten years ago in many uropean cities, offices typically had spaces for six bicycles, half of which were never used and spaces for 50 cars which were always full. Today, there are fewer car spaces and many more spaces for bicycles which are always full. This change to cycling may seem strange to some as cycling is more effort. Possible causes are rising fuel prices, the introduction of higher parking charges for drivers in major cities, increasing awareness of environmental issues, expensive public transport and traffic jams. Which one of the following can be drawn as a conclusion from the above passage? More people cycle to work now than 10 years ago. Using a bicycle is now the most popular way of travelling to work. Travellers are now much more environmentally aware than they were 10 years ago. People will not cycle to work unless employers provide more cycle spaces on site. Travellers are now less happy to pay the costs of car use than they were ten years ago. ULS 2012 Page 12 / 40

16 28 Roughly 60 percent of today's world population is bilingual or multilingual and it is argued that this is a new phenomenon. Today Spanish and rabic are widely spoken whilst nglish is the world's most commonly spoken and written language. However, 500 years ago it was Latin which was the main language of education, religion, commerce and government in the Western World despite this not being most people's first language. In the 17th century, French and Italian gained in importance as languages of international trade. Which one of the following can be drawn as a conclusion of the above passage? Speaking another language has always been an important practical consideration. nglish is the most common world language today because of the spread of the internet. The number of bilingual or multilingual people in the world will continue to grow. nglish will one day be replaced as the main language of communication. The majority of bilingual or multilingual people speak nglish. 29 In 2010 there were over 110,000 incidents of arson (deliberately setting fire to buildings) in the UK in which over 100 people were killed, usually in attacks on people's homes. Only a small percentage of homes have smoke alarms. If more homes had smoke alarms, the number of domestic fires would be significantly reduced. There should be a campaign to persuade people to install smoke alarms in their home as this would reduce the number of deaths. Which one of the following identifies the flaw in the above argument? It assumes that having smoke alarms will prevent fires. It overlooks the fact that smoke alarms may not work. It assumes that people will be willing to install smoke alarms. It assumes that all arson attacks are on people's homes. It assumes that all deaths in fires are from arson attacks. ULS 2012 Page 14 / 40

17 30 Television programmes that show young people in a school environment continue to feature highly in viewing schedules. Few of the programmes, however, give any emphasis on the time spent studying and the work required for academic success. Many of the actors used are far older than the characters they portray, suggesting attitudes, behaviour and appearances that are inaccurate and sometimes inappropriate. roadcasters and producers should try to correct this. Which one of the following must be assumed in the above argument? It is important to represent school life accurately. Television programmes about other areas such as the police are not accurate. School work and academic success are important to all students. It is often impractical to use young people in television programmes given the restrictions on how many hours they can work. Young people may feel that their social life is dull compared with that shown in television programmes. 31 It has been argued that since there has to be some limit on the funding of university education by governments, it would be best to target such funding, giving a lower priority to subjects which provide little benefit to society. Some subjects, such as Medicine, ngineering and omputing should be well funded, because they are clearly of great worth to the community. Subjects such as lassics, Literature and rt should be funded at a much lower level. These subjects are primarily of interest to the individual, and a wealthy society should give some subsidy to hobby subjects. However, it must be recognised that the future of society lies in the training and development of those people who will contribute the most. Which one of the following must be assumed in the above argument? The study at universities of lassics, Literature and rt provides little benefit to society. Medicine, ngineering and omputing are not very interesting subjects to study. Subjects which are of interest to individuals can also provide benefit to society. wealthy society should not subsidise subjects which are of interest only to individuals. The training of those people who will contribute most to society requires an increase in government funding in university education. ULS 2012 Page 15 / 40

18 32 Global warming is threatening the survival of alifornia's redwoods. These trees benefit from coastal fog which is captured by the trees, causing water to drip onto the soil and therefore watering them. Since fog is now 30 percent less frequent than it was 50 years ago the trees will not have this source of water and are therefore likely to begin to die out. Which one of the following must be assumed in the above argument? Global warming is to blame for the reduction in coastal fog. Rainfall has also reduced over the past 50 years. Redwoods in other areas of the world are being similarly affected. The levels of fog will continue to decline. Other trees will not be able to thrive in these conditions. 33 fter Northern urope experienced the coldest weather for several years last winter, people are claiming that the theories of global warming are incorrect. This is not a conclusion that can be drawn from the information as it is only based on a single year's data. Global warming is based on long term changes in average temperature. It therefore does not mean that the temperature will increase every year. The extreme weather last winter was caused by cold air from the rctic which is normally kept there by strong winds around the pole. Last winter those winds were not as strong. Which one of the following, if true, would most strengthen the above argument? Other regions of the Northern Hemisphere were hotter last winter than in previous years. lthough the weather was very cold last winter, the winter before was of average temperature. The claims that theories of global warming are incorrect are supported by further evidence. ll the people claiming that theories of global warming are incorrect come from areas that had very cold weather last winter. Some of the people claiming that the theories of global warming are incorrect do not come from areas that had very cold weather last winter. ULS 2012 Page 16 / 40

21 38 One of the fastest-growing beauty treatments in ritain, fish pedicures - where tiny toothless fish called garra rufa smooth feet by eating dead skin - has come under scrutiny from animal rights campaigners. One campaigner said, 'Fish are covered by the nimal Welfare ct. They need a stable environment and clean water, uncontaminated by perfume or lotions.' spa in London's West nd was closed recently by the local council when many of the fish in its pedicure pool died. There should be a complete ban on this type of pedicure, or else there will soon be no garra rufa. Which one of the following is the best statement of the flaw in the above argument? The death of the fish in the London spa may not be a typical occurrence. It would be less harmful if people washed their feet before using the spa. Fish in the wild are likely to die if their environment changes. The public does not immediately associate fish with the nimal Welfare ct. eauty spas which offer fish pedicures are not especially numerous at present. 39 The National Farmer's Union (NFU) approves of controlled killing of badgers to reduce their numbers, saying that it is needed to help farming. adgers are animals believed to be responsible for the spread of bovine tuberculosis which results in large numbers of cows having to be destroyed every year. nimal rights supporters have criticised the proposal, but it is clear that the lives of more cattle can be saved by destroying a smaller number of badgers. This controlled killing should be allowed to go ahead. Which one of the following is the best statement of the flaw in the above argument? It assumes that the arguments from the animal rights supporters are about the number of deaths. It assumes that the animal rights supporters believe that badgers have a greater right to life than cows. It assumes that the animal rights supporters believe that animals that are living freely have a greater right to life than those that are being bred on farms. It attacks the animal rights supporters rather than their argument. It assumes that animal rights supporters always disagree with the NFU. ULS 2012 Page 19 / 40

22 40 Many people argue that the many government programmes intended to increase road safety have caused a steady decline in the number of accidents on our roads. However, some observers report that the real number of accidents may be much higher than is shown in the official records as many accidents are not reported by drivers. They also say that during the time when accident figures have decreased, the number of people going to hospitals because of road accidents has stayed constant. Which one of the following can be drawn as a conclusion from the above passage? Positive views about continually improving road safety may not be supported by what actually happens. Government programmes have been unsuccessful in reducing the number of accidents. Hospital admissions are a good way of measuring changes in the number of accidents on our roads. Road safety has improved greatly in recent years. rivers should be required to report all accidents that occur on the road. iology 41 The following organelles are involved in processing amino acids into glycoprotein: 1.
