Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 31 to 35.
From far out in space, Earth looks like a blue ball. Since water covers threefourths of the Earth’s surface, blue is the color we see most. The continents look brown, like small islands floating in the huge, blue sea. White clouds wrap around the Earth like a light blanket. The Earth is shaped like a sphere, or a bail. It is 25,000 miles around! It would take more than a year to walk around the whole planet. A spaceship can fly around the widest part of the sphere in only 90 minutes.
Even though spaceships have traveled to the Moon, people cannot visit the Moon without special suits. The Moon has no air or water. Plants and animals can’t live there either. Astronauts first landed on the Moon in 1969. After that, there were six more trips to the Moon. They brought back Moon rocks, which scientists are still studying. There are holes, or craters, all over the Moon’s surface. Scientists believe that meteorites smashed into the Moon millions of years ago and formed the craters.
The Sun is the closest star to Earth. A star is a hot ball of burning gas. The Sun looks very big because it is so close. But the Sun is just a medium-sized star. Billions of far-away stars are much bigger than our Sun. The burning gases from the Sun are so hot that they warm the Earth from 93 million miles away! Even though the Sun is always glowing, the night here on Earth is dark. That’s because the Earth rotates, or turns around, every 24 hours. During the day, the Earth faces the Sun. Then we see light. During the night, the Earth turns away from the Sun. Then it faces the darkness of space.
Question 31: Why is blue the color we see most when looking at Earth from outer space?
A. Because most of the Earth is covered in land. B. Because the Sun’s rays make the Earth look blue. C. Because most of the Earth is covered in water.
D. Because clouds wrap around the Earth. Question 32: Why did the astronauts bring rocks back from the Moon?
A. Because they didn’t know if they would return to the Moon ever again… B. Because they wanted to prove that they went to the Moon. C. Because they wanted to remember how the Moon looked.
D. Because they wanted to study them and learn more about the Moon. Question 33: What causes daylight on Earth?
A. The full Moon causes daylight. B. Daylight is caused by the Earth facing away from the Sun. C. The heat of the Sun’s rays causes daylight.
D. Daylight is caused by the Earth facing toward the Sun. Question 34: Which of the following sentences BEST describes the Sun?
A. The Sun looks small because it is so far from Earth. B. The Sun is a ball of burning gases that gives the Earth heat and light. C. The Sun is a small star. D. The Sun is not as hot as it looks.
Question 35: What is the main idea of the passage?
A. Plants and animals can’t live on the Moon. B. Without the Sun we would have no heat or light. C. We know a lot about the Earth, Moon, and Sun, but there is still more to learn. D. From outer space, the Earth looks tiny, even though it is thousands of miles around.
Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 36 to 42.
The Indian word nimba means a tree which provides good health. According to Hindu custom, on the Hindu New Year’s Day, it is a custom to eat a few tender nimba leaves.
The nimba is also known as the neem tree. It has been grown in India for centuries. The neem is an extremely useful tree with small leaves, sweet-smelling flowers and small fruit. It is a fast grower, acts as a windbreak, is resistant to insects and needs little water. It will grow in salty soil and is long living.
That is why in a country like Oman, one of the Arab nations, the neem has been widely planted. Oman is dry and hot. Neem trees line roadways. They add greenery to parks in a land where greenery is not common.
Although the neem tree is deciduous, it doesn’t lose all its leaves at once. It allows a glow of gold to affect some of the leaves and renews its foliage slowly as summer approaches.
Experiments in Oman have shown that on blistering hot days the temperature under the neem tree can be up to eight degrees lower.
in India, few villages are without a neem tree. It is more or less a backyard chemist shop. Much of the folk medicine has been supported by scientific discoveries: 135 chemical compounds have been isolated. One chemical is an insect repellent, while others stop swelling, fight tuberculosis, or reduce pain. It can be a gargle for sore throats and is used in the treatment of diabetes, leprosy and malaria. Scientists are investigating claims that the tree is an air purifier. Boiled leaves provide a treatment for skin infections. The small, knobbly nuts provide oil for the treatment of head lice.
Many Indians make and eat neem leaf chutney for good health. It seems the neem tree can cure almost any complaint.
Farmers use the trees as a pesticide and to protect their crops from fungus and insect disease. Termites avoid the tree. It is no wonder it is called “the world in a tree”.
