Surrounding Alaska on all but one side are two oceans and a vast sea, giving this state the longest coastline in the United States. In fact, if the coastlines of all of its peninsulas and islands are considered, Alaska has a longer coastline, 33,904 miles (54,563 kilometers), than all the other 49 states together.
Most of the state lies on a peninsula, bounded by the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Bering Sea to the west, and the Pacific Ocean on the southwest, south, and southeast. This peninsula, stretching away from the rest of North America, forms the northwest comer of the continent. One of the world's largest peninsulas, it is partly shared with Canada on the east.
The seas indent the shores of the main peninsula to form other peninsulas that contribute some of the most outstanding features to Alaska's outline. Most notable of these is the Alaska Peninsula. The peninsula itself is 550 miles (885 kilometers) long, before the spectacular chain of islands reaches toward Asia.
Another of Alaska's large peninsulas is Seward, in which a number of smaller eastern states could be swallowed up. The Kenai Peninsula, less extensive than Seward, is about the size of the state of Maryland.
Part of Alaska's ocean heritage, many islands lie along the fringes of the state. Much of southeastern Alaska is made up of the Alexander Archipelago of 1100 islands, including Baranof, Kuiu, and Admiralty. Continuing up the coast are the islands of Prince William Sound. The Aleutian Islands pursue their bleak and windswept course in a long arc that encloses the Bering Sea. Included in the Aleutian chain are whole archipelagoes, such as the Fox, Near, and Rat islands.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 35 to 42.
Did you know that your small intestine is nearly six meters long? Or that there are about 60 muscles in your face, and you use 40 of them to frown but only 20 to smile? How about the fact that our bodies consist of 73 percent water, and that our hearts beat over 100,000 times each day? You really are amazing!
The human body is a complex machine. From the day we are bom, our bodies grow and change in response to our environment, diet, and habits. The body has many different organ systems and parts that work together to allow us to breathe, move, see, talk, and digest food all at the same time. Most of the time we are unaware of what is happening in our bodies, usually it is only when we get sick or feel pain that we notice.
Many people do not take care of their complex machines. Bad habits like smoking, drinking too much alcohol, and eating junk food damage our bodies. Stress can also cause health problems. People who worry a lot or have busy jobs often don't get enough sleep, or don't eat properly. We also can damage our bodies when we play sports or get into accidents. Studies done by the Australian government show that most people get hurt because of an accidental slip or fall, or because of injuries from car accidents. It's true that a lot of people go to hospital because of serious illnesses, but far more people end up there because they simply weren't being carefill.
Like machines, different body parts sometimes wear down from old age. People over the age of 65 are more likely to fall and hurt themselves. And these injuries - from bad cuts to broken bones - usually require serious medical attention. Due to the increase in the population of elderly people, gerontology is now one of the fastest growing areas of medicine. There are many treatments available to help older people recover from illness and injury. It is now common for older people with damaged joints, for example, to have surgery to replace the old joint with a new one made of plastic or metal. Instead of suffering aches and pains through their retirement days, older people are able to lead happier and more comfortable lives.
As with any machine, the better you take care of it, the longer it will last. The best way to take care of your amazing machine is to eat the right foods, do regular exercise, and get enough sleep. Oh, and don't forget to smile!
