Before gold and silver were brought to Europe from the Spanish and Portuguese colonies in Latin America during the sixteenth century, inflation had not been a major problem. Since that time, however, inflation has been a significant economic issue, es­pecially during and after wars.
Currently, in many countries of the world, peo­ple are facing problems caused by inflation, which is a decrease in the purchasing power of money because of continuous rises in the prices of available goods. There are two different kinds of inflation, each of which can affect people's lives.
When inflation is discussed, people generally refer to an increase in prices, wages, and the amount of money circulating in a country's economy. The most common type of inflation is called creeping inflation because there is a steady but manageable increase in the rate of inflation within a year. Prices rise conti­nuously, so that workers ask for higher wages to cover the increasing costs of housing, food, and transporta­tion. Although such wage increases are inflationary, they are often unavoidable. As a result, a govern­ment may have to impose price and wage controls in order to control this type of inflation.
A less common type of inflation is called hyperin­flation, which is usually due to war or occupation by a foreign country. During a period of hyperinflation, price levels double rapidly. As there is too much money available in the economy, the currency decreases in value, and people lose confidence in their govern­ment's financial competence. To win back the trust of the people, the government may create a new currency.

20. Which of the following is TRUE according to the text?
  1. Inflation became a serious economic issue in the late 1600
  2. Workers can support their families because of their high wages.
  3. To avoid inflation, the government should increase the people wages.
  4. Whatever types of inflation a country experi­ences, it affects every individual in society.
  5. The Spanish and Portuguese colonies brought gold and silver to Europe in the year 1600.

21. What is paragraph 3 about?
  1. Creeping inflation
  2. The rate of inflation.
  3. The cause of inflation.
  4. Inflation in many countries.
  5. Uncontrolled price increases.

22. What is the topic of paragraph 4?
  1. The effects of hyperinflation.
  2. The decreasing value of money.
  3. The creation of new currency.
  4. People's trust in the government.
  5. Efforts to overcome inflation.

23. The following are the characteristics of inflation except....
  1. rising prices of available goods
  2. declining purchasing power
  3. higher costs of living
  4. increasing demands for higher wages
  5. a decrease of the circulation of money

24. What is the common cause of inflation?
  1. People are not earning enough money.
  2. Government control on the economy is too strict.
  3. There are always political conflicts between nations.
  4. There is too much money circulating in the economy.
  5. The costs of housing and transportation have doubled.

Text 4
Mr. Baker      : Hello, Mr. Fanelli. Please have a seat. What can I do for you today?
Mr. Fanelli     : I want to borrow some money to buy a car. A friend of mine, Jack
Richard­son, bought a new car last week. He told me that he got his loan here.
Mr. Baker      : Oh, yes. I remember him. I was the loan officer who spoke with him.
Mr. Fanelli     : He said that you were very helpful. I know very little about loans and I
hope you can explain things to me.
Mr. Baker      : I will certainly try. What questions did you have for me?
Mr. Fanelli     : First, I want to know if loans for buying cars are commercial loans or                            personal loans.
Mr. Baker      : Neither, Mr. Fanelli. They're auto, loans. A commercial loan is principal that banks lend to businesses. Per­sonal loans are made to individuals, but
not for buying cars.
Mr. Fanelli     : What about interest rates?
Mr. Baker      : The rate of interest currently in effect on auto loans is 16%
Mr. Fanelli     : For how long will I have to make monthly payments?
Mr. Baker      : The term of the loan is three years, so there will be 36 monthly payments.
Mr. Fanelli     : Do I have to give the bank any col­lateral?
Mr. Baker      : The car serves as collateral. If you default, the bank can take possession of the car. The bank also checks your credit file to make sure that you al­ways  paid back your loans in the past. Do you have any charge accounts?
Mr. Fanelli     : My wife and I bought our furniture with our charge card and we even used it to buy airplane tickets for our vacation in California last year. We paid off both those debts promptly.
Mr. Baker        : That's very good. I assume there will be no problem. But the first thing you have to do is fill out this loan application.
Mr. Fanelli     : Thank you very much. I'll start right now.
