V. Part E. Reading Comprehension: 20%
  Read the following letter and write your answer on the answer sheet.
Dear Robert,
   Thanks for the phone call yesterday; it was good to talk with you. You asked me if something was wrong, and I said no. But you were right, older brother-something is bothering me, troubling me greatly.
   After talking to you yesterday, I decided to write you a letter.
  Writing often helps me organize my thoughts and see life more clearly.
   I accidentally discovered that my company is dumping a chemical into a river near one of its factories in the countryside. At first, I wasn't concerned about this. I knew that the owner of the company were fine men and would not do anything illegal.
   But then I read a story in the newspaper about factories illegally dumping chemicals into rivers and how many of these chemicals are harmful. One chemical is very dangerous to humans because, over time, it can cause cancer. And this the same chemical that my own company is dumping into that river!
   I was puzzled at first. So I checked carefully and found out that I was right. The company has been dumping this deadly chemical for about 18 months, and the owners know about it!
   Well, Robert, I am confused and upset. Of course, I could tell my boss. But then he might tell the owners and they would fire me, the troublemaker. Should I talk to officials of the government? The owners are powerful men and might bribe the officials, and then I would lose my job. Perhaps I could talk to the journalist who wrote the story in the newspaper.
   As you know, I plan to retire in four more years. I am too old to quit and find a new job. Besides, I like my work. Well, I used to like my work. Now I am feeling very strange. It is getting difficult to continue my work as if nothing were wrong.
   Please help me, older brother. I don't know what to do.
  Yours,
  Austin
