I.B Translate into English (9p +1=10 points)N-am putut lasa dialogul acela sa continue, Joana plecase de la mine doar de un ceas ~i ultima dovadade vitalitate pe care mi-o daduse ma obosise nespus de multoRefuzul ei de a recunoaste existenta reala acuiva era aproape tot atat de mare ca si spaima ei de a-si lasa timp liber sa-~i inteleaga adevarataexistenta a mintii si a sufletului. Mi-am amintit brusc una din acele fraze, din acele "adevaruridefinitive" pe care mi le spusese Ioana despre ea. Poate ca i se potrivea ei, dar ~imie, poate ca daca nuar fi fost pe intelesul meu, nu as fi tinut minte atat de bine vorbele pe care le spusese cu asa de multtimp in urma. Daca nu mi s-ar fi intamplat asta, sigur as fi murit de sila, de ura. A~ fi ajuns sa nu maivreau s-o vad niciodata, sa n-o mai pot privi in ochi.
II. A. Translate into Romanian (9p +1=10 points)My other grandmother J knew even less, a fact which I did not regret since she seemed, from what Iheard of her, to be slightly mad, and may even have been so, for all I know. She was a widow living inSouth Kensington with two small dogs to whom she devoted all her leisure hours. She really shouldhave been a dog breeder rather than a mother, for she felt for her son a mild affection only one degreewarmer than indifference, whereas she would actually show real love to her dogs. The dogs were takenout twice a day for an extensive run in the park, where she shouted instructions and encouragements.The only thing my father seemed to have inherited from her was her love for exercise - he too wasimpatient unless he had the prospect of a long walk before him.
II. B. Read the text below and answer each question in no more than 150 words:That project which engaged Lady Bruton's attention, which was the motive power of her soul: theproject of emigrating young people of both sexes born of respectable parents and setting them up with afair prospect of doing well in Canada. She exaggerated. She had perhaps lost her sense of proportion.Emigration was not to others the obvious remedy, the sublime conception. It was not to them theliberator of the unexpressed egotism, which a strong martial woman, well nourished, well descended, ofdirect impulses, downright feelings, and little introspective power, feels rise within her, once youth ispast, and must,eject upon some object - it may be Emigration, it may be Emancipation; but what ever itbe, this object round which the essence of her soul is daily secreted becomes inevitably prismatic,lustrous, half looking-glass, half precious stone; now carefully hidden in case people should sneer at it;now proudly displayed. Emigration had become, in short, largely Lady Bruton. (Virginia Woolf, Mrs.Dalloway)1. Why does Lady Bruton's Emigration project centre round "young people born ofrespectable parents". (4.5 points)2. Give your opinion on Emigration to Canada in nowadays Romania. (4.5 points)
