Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.
Almost everybody has had acne. Acne, also known as pimples or zits, is a normal part of growing up. When kids reach puberty. their bodies experience many changes. As the levels of hormones in teenagers’ bodies change, tecnagers frequently develop pimples. Additionally, many people continue to have pimples after puberty. What can a teenager or an adult do to cure pimples. Unfortunatel many cures people think will work on pimples are really just myths.
Many people believe that popping pimples is the best way to get rid of them. Popping a pimple will actually push the germs further under the skin, which can cause more redness and pain, or even turn into an infection. For that reason, dermatologists normally encourage people not to pop their pimpies
Another widely believed myth is that not wearing makeup can help reduce a person’s chance of developing pimples. In fact, some kinds of nakeup or face creams actually have special medicine in them to fight pimples. As a result, not all of them are bad for you.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.
The faster a given object is moving, the more energy it possesses. This kind of energy is called “kinetic energy”, from the Greek word kinesis, meaning motion. The faster a given object is moving, the greater its kinetic energy. Imagine you’re trying to hit a target with a bow and arrow. If you just throw the arrow with your hand, it won’t go very fast, and even if your aim is good, the arrou won’t penetrate the target – it’ll just bounce off!
But if you use the bow, you can shoot the arrow much faster. The faster the arrow is going, the more kinetic energy it has. Kinetic energy is what allows the arrow to puncture the target. Energy can never be created or destroyed, only transferred – moved from place to place. One way energy is moved from place to place is by moving objects. Imagine hitting a tee ball with a bat. When you hit the ball with the bat, energy is transferred from the bat to the ball. If you swing the bat slowly. the ball won’t go very far when you hit it. But if you swing the bat faster, it will have more kinetic energy. That energy will be transferred to the ball, and the ball will go much farther. Energy can also be transferred through sound. Try high-fiving your friend very slowly. You probably won’t make very much sound. If you liigh-five at the normal speed, your hands have more kinetic energy. and you’ll make a nice smack. What you’re hearing is energy turned into sound. The same thing happens when you hit a drum, or pluck the strings of a guitar. Energy can also be transferred through light. Light from the sun makes your body feel warmer. Plants use energy from light and grow bigger and make oxygen. Energy can also be transferred through electricity. This kind of energy can be used for almost anything. But remember: Energy cannot be cre.ited. Energy in the form of electricity has to be transferred from another kind of energy. Wind power uses a machine called a turbine that turns the energy of the wind into electricity. Coal, oil, and gas power burn different kinds of material, creating heat that gets turned into electricity. Solar power generates elec:ricity from the sun’s light – although not as easily as a plant.
