    PART ONE: Reading (15 points)
    A) Comprehension: (08 points)
    Read the text carefully and do the activities.
    Transparency International (TI) is a global coalition against corruption. TI believes that it can change attitudes and mores and build zero-tolerance for corruption where the problem is seen as an acceptable fact of life
    Using the words of Nelson Mandela, TI states that "Education is the most powerful weapon that you can use to change the world." Therefore anti-corruption education that condemns it and builds the knowledge and skills to resist it can develop people's understanding of their rights and responsibilities for preserving the public good.
    According to TI, if the adults are taught while young that corruption is wrong, there is a chance to break the cycle. They have to be given the ways and means to stand up to corruption. If they know what to do when faced with an ethical dilemma or upfront bribe, it can become a more effective tool in preventing corrupt and unethical behavior by public servants or in business than the most sophisticated codes of conduct, laws and regulations. Anti-corruption laws and institutions are ineffective without people who will not tolerate corruption and will actively fight against it.
