There are several factors that increase the risk of cancer. Mutations that affect genes are believed to con-tribute to the development of cancer. These genes produce proteins that regulate growth and alter cell division and other basic cell properties. Cancer-causing genetic mutations may result from the damaging effects of drugs and viruses. Additionally, environmental factors such as air pollution and radiation increase the risk of cancer. Some chemicals like pesticides are known to cause cancer, and many others are suspected of doing so, but more study is needed to identify those chemicals that increase the risk. The threat of cancer may also vary according to geographical features. This geographic variation in cancer risk is multifactorial: a combination of genetics, diet and environment. For example, the Japanese, who follow a diet that mainly includes smoked foods, have high rates of colorectal cancer. When they immigrate to the US and eat a Western diet, the risk level declines to that of the US. Age is another risk factor. While some cancers like Vilms' tumor occur almost exclusively in children, cancers of the lungs and kidneys are more common in older people, probably due to constant exposure to carcinogens and weakening of the body's immune system. However, not all people who are exposed to carcinogens or who have other risk factors develop cancer.

65. It can be inferred from the passage that ----.

A) if a person is frequently subjected to carcinogens, he or she will certainly suffer from cancer
B) where people live and what they eat may determine whether they will develop any type of cancer
C) even when the immune system functions nor-mally, cancer can escape its successful protection
D) some environmental factors leading to cancer can be handled to decrease the risk while others have no way to be prevented
E) the risk of developing any type of cancer in the US is less than Japan since Americans are more careful about carcinogens

Her ne kadar cevabın (B) olduğu bulunabiliyorsa da insana zevk vermiyor.

İngilicesi ortalamanın biraz üzerinde olan herkesin takdir edebileceği gibi burada ille de bir şey denilecekse "any" yerine "a certain" denmeliydi.

Ya da aslında hiç bir şey denmese daha şık olurdu.

"Her türlü kanser" anlamına gelecek "any" için gerekçe nedir şimdi?

Ben cevaplayayım: "any, no, never, vb gibi abartılı sözcükler gördüğünde elemelisin" diye ezberleyenleri yanıltmak için olmalı.

İyi de söylenen anlamlı değil ki! En azından tuhaf...

İnsanları çeldirmek için zorlama şık yapmanın tatsız sonuçlarından birisi daha.

Soru hazırlayanların daha usta kişiler olmaları gerekir.

Bunun için de şeffaflık gerek. Yani en azından kurum olarak kimin hazırladığı yayınlanmalı. O zaman işler daha sıkı takip edilir.
