B. Read the passage then choose the best answers (0.5 point)
Money is something we all take for granted in our lives. Some of us may wish we had more of it but
we all recognize it when we see it, whether in the form of coins, notes or cheques. It is difficult to
imagine how people managed without money. In the earliest periods of human history, people used to
exchange goods directly. They would exchange things they had plenty of for things that they were in
need of. For example, they might offer food for tools. This method of exchange, which is known as
barter, has many disadvantages. Certain goods may be difficult to carry, they may not last long, or
may be impossible to divide into smaller units. It can also be difficult to know the worth of something
compared with other goods.
According to historians, the first money, in the sense we understand it today, consisted of gold
coins produced about 2,500 years ago. Gold, being a very precious metal, was a suitable material. The
introduction of gold coins was acceptable to everyone and they were still being used at the beginning
of this century, although they have now been replaced by paper money and coins made of ordinary
metals.
