READING COMPREHENSION

: Read the following passage carefully, then answer the questions below -
It is easy to make a delicious-looking hamburger at home. But would this hamburger still look delicious after it sat on your kitchen table under very bright lights for six or seven hours? If someone took a picture or made a video of this hamburger after the seventh hour, would anyone want to eat it? More importantly, do you thinkyou could get millions of people to pay money for this hamburger
These are the questions that fast-food companies worry about when they produce commercials or print ads for their products. Video and photo shoots often last many hours. The lights that the photographers use can be extremely hot. These conditions can cause the food to look quite unpleasant to potential consumers. Because of this, the menu items that you see in fast food commercials are probably not actually edible.
Let’s use the hamburger as an example. The first step towards building the perfect commercial hamburger is the bun. The food stylist—a person employed by the company to make sure the products look perfect—sorts through hundreds of buns until he or she finds one with no wrinkles. Next, the stylist carefully rearranges the sesame seeds on the bun using glue and tweezers for maximum visual appeal. The bun is then sprayed with a waterproofing solution so that it will not get soggy from contact with other ingredients, the lights, or the
humidity in the room. Next, the food stylist shapes a meat patty into a perfect circle. Only the outside of the meat gets cooked—the inside is left raw so that the meat remains moist. The food stylist then paints the outside of the meat patty with a mixture of oil, molasses, and brown food colouring. Grill marks are either painted on or seared into the meat using hot metal skewers. Finally, the food stylist searches through dozens of tomatoes and heads of lettuce to find the best-looking produce. One leaf of the crispest lettuce and one centre slice of the reddest tomato are selected and then sprayed with glycerin to keep them looking fresh. So, the next time you see a hamburger in a fast-food commercial, you must remember that you’re actually looking at glue, paint, raw  meat, and glycerin! Are you still hungry

A. From a, b, c and d choose the correct answer

1.  ? Which of the following would be the best title of the passage

a) The Food Stylist

b) Bright Lights & Humidity

c) How to Take Photos

d) Fast Food Commercials

Grade 12- Unit Seven – Reading Comprehension

2. : The underlined word “soggy” in the 3 rd paragraph means

a) wet

b) ugly

c) attractive

d) tasteless

3.  ? What does the underlined word ‘they’ in the 2 nd paragraph refer to

a) questions

b) millions of people

c) commercials

d) fast food companies

4. According to the passage, the food stylist’s job is to

a) make food products look perfect.

b) make the most delicious products.

c) cook tasty hamburgers.

d) cook the inside and outside of the bun.

5. ? According to the passage, which of the following is NOT TRUE

a) It takes a few hours to shoot photos to produce a commercial.

b) The sesame seeds are carefully rearranged by the stylist on the bun.

c) The meat will remain moist only if the inside of the meat is left raw.

d) Glycerin is used to make the lettuce leaf and tomato slice look fresh.

B. With reference to the passage, answer the following questions

6.  ? Why are the menu items that you see in fast food commercials not edible

SUMMARY MAKING

Read the following passage, then do as required
Festivals are gatherings and activities to express joy at a remembered event. As societies change, the characteristics of their traditional festivals and celebrations may also change; new ones often appear as others diminish. Most likely, however, some festivals will remain unaltered for generations. First, for participants they are a source of joy. For observers they offer an unforgettable experience. Secondly, festivals in old societies provided a chance for the elders to pass on folk knowledge to younger generations. Moreover, modern festivals, centring on the customs of a nation, enrich the understanding of one's heritage. Finally, contemporary festivals aid the local economy by attracting visitors. Certainly, celebrations are part of the lifestyle of all people and contribute to modern civilization.

In a paragraph of FOUR sentences ONLY, summarise and paraphrase the passage above in answer to the following question:

 ? What are the benefits of Festivals

READING COMPREHENSION

: Read the following passage carefully, then answer the questions that follow-

Everyone has a favourite attraction at an amusement park, and I am no different. However, unlike most people who seem to prefer rollercoasters, my favourite ride is a little more gentle. Every time I go to Coney Island, Navy Pier, or the Santa Monica Pier, I absolutely have to ride the Ferris wheel. The Ferris wheel is simple and yet also quite complex. That is, riding it is easy, but how it works is complicated. A series of carts are attached to a wheel, which is attached to a rim. That rim rotates vertically around an axis, and gravity keeps the carts upright. As simple as the ride seems, only advanced engineers can make safe and fun Ferris wheels. 

While the Ferris wheel is not as thrilling as a rollercoaster, it is still very exciting. The fact of being high in the air makes it so much more entertaining than a lot of rides. Nevertheless, I have to admit, I don’t seek Ferris wheels out because of their excitement. Rather, I find them very relaxing. At the top of the Ferris wheel, you get beautiful sights of the park. You also get a sense of calm that you don’t get in the hustle and bustle of the park below. Additionally, Ferris wheels are also gorgeous to look at when they are lit up at night. In fact, the original Ferris wheel was designed as much to be seen as to be ridden. The first Ferris wheel was made by George Washington Gale Ferris.

 He designed it for the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. It was the tallest attraction there, standing 264 feet high. However, visitors to the fair were impressed by the size of the ride as well as the mechanics of it. Further, as one visitor put it, the Ferris wheel was amazing because it seemed to be missing  support. That is, it did not look like it could stand on its own. And yet it did and even rotated Ferris wheel technology has only improved since then. Most of today’s Ferris wheels are much larger than that first one. The largest in the world is the "Singapore Flyer," which stands slightly taller than twice what Ferris’s did! Today, the Ferris wheel is the most common amusement park ride. But that does not mean you should take them for granted. Instead, be thankful for Ferris’ invention. The next time you’re at an amusement park, don’t just look 

! up at the impressive wheel in the sky on your way to a newer attraction. Take it for a spin

SUMMARY MAKING

 : Read the following passage carefully, then do as required
Winter is cold in some places. Animals get through this time in many ways. First, birds and butterflies fly away. They go to a place with nice weather and come home in the spring. Migrating is a good way to avoid the cold. Another good way to avoid the cold is to sleep through it. Many animals hide during the winter. They do not eat. They live off their fat. We call this hibernation. In addition, some animals store food in their homes. They live on what they saved in the summer and fall. Finally, to survive, other animals grow thicker coats in the winter or change colours. Winter may be pretty. It is nice to see snow on trees, but it is dangerous, too.

In a paragraph of FOUR sentences ONLY, summarise and paraphrase the passage above in answer to the following question.

 ? How do some animals survive cold winter

READING COMPREHENSION

Read the following passage carefully, then answer the questions below 
Doctors say that there are several kinds of headaches. Each kind begins in a different place and needs different treatment. Some of these headaches start with a change in vision or sight. The person sees wavy lines, black dots, or white spots in front of the eyes. This is a warning that a headache is coming. The headache occurs on only one side of the head. The vision is blurred, and the person may vomit from the pain. These headaches are called the migraine headaches. They are more frequent in women than men. Sleep is the best cure for them .
Cluster headaches, which also start in the arteries, are called cluster headaches because they come in clusters or groups. A cluster headache lasts only for two hours and then goes away. At the beginning of the cluster headache, the eyes become red and watery . There is a steady pain in the head. Men have more cluster headaches than women do .
The muscle headache, which starts in the muscles in the neck or forehead, is caused by tension. When the person becomes nervous about something, or has problems at work, school or home, the neck and head muscles become tense and the headache starts. A muscle headache usually starts in the morning and gets worse as the hours pass. There is a steady pain, pressure and a bursting feeling. Usually, Aspirin doesn’t help in muscle headaches. How do doctors treat headaches? If a person has frequent headaches, the doctor first has to decide what kind they are. Medicine can help, but there are other ways to treat them .
The doctor asks the patient to analyse his or her daily living patterns. A change in diet or an increase in exercise might stop the headaches. If the patient realises that difficulties at home, work or school are causing the tension, it might be possible to make changes and decrease these problems.
Psychological problems and even medicine for another physical problem can cause headache. The doctor has to discuss and analyse all these patterns of the patient’s life. A headache can also be a signal of a more serious problem, so, patients should realize that there is no magic cure for headaches. However, doctors can control most of them .

SUMMARY MAKING

Read the following text then do as required
The frightening outbreak of Coronavirus has become the most important topic that occupies the entire world. The virus that causes COVID-19 is spreading very easily among people. Thus, the more closely a person interacts with others, the higher the risk of COVID-
19 spread will be. The World Health Organization, WHO, has developed measures forprotecting workers from exposure to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, which depend on the type of work being performed, exposure risk, and the interaction with the infected people. For all people not only workers, first of all, it is good to frequently wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Also, when soap and running water are
unavailable, an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol can be used. Besides, it is a must to avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. Finally, It is important to avoid close contact with people who are sick and stay home if one feels sick.

In a paragraph of FOUR sentences ONLY, summarise and paraphrase the previous text in answer to the following question

READING COMPREHENSION

Read the following passage carefully, then answer the questions below
From far out in space, the Earth looks like a blue ball. Since water covers three-fourths of the Earth’s surface, blue is the colour 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 ball. 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.
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 starsare 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 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.
Although spaceships have travelled to the Moon, people cannot visit the Moon without special suits. The Moon has no air or water so plants and animals can’t live there. Astronauts first landed on the Moon in 1969. They brought back Moon rocks, which scientists are still studying. There are holes all over the Moon’s surface. Scientists believe that huge pieces of rocks crashed into the Moon millions of years ago and formed the holes.
The Sun warms our planet, and with the Moon, creates the tides in seas and oceans.The Moon orbits the Earth  and in turn, the Earth orbits the Sun. The Sun and the Moon appear to be the same size in the sky because the Sun is about 400 times farther away than the Moon.

A- From a, b, c and c choose the correct answer

1. The best title for the passage is

a) Without the Sun

b) Plants and Animals

c) The Earth, The Moon and The Sun

d) Living on the Moon.

Grade 12- Unit Ten – Reading Comprehension

2. The underlined word "rotates" in the 2nd paragraph is closest in meaning to 

a) goes away

d) travels to

a) animals

b) plants

c) astronauts

d) spaceships

4. The astronauts brought rocks back from the Moon

a) to learn more about the Moon.

b) to remember how the Moon looked.

c) to form holes on the moon.

d) to create the tides in seas and oceans.

5. According to the passage, all the following sentences are NOT TRUE EXCEPT

a) The Sun is a very big star.

b) During the night, the Earth faces the Sun.

c) Both the Sun and the Moon create the tides.

d) The burning gases from the Sun cool the Earth.

SUMMARY MAKING

 Read the following passage, then do as required
Wearing seat belts does not make you invincible. You can still get hurt or killed while wearing your seat belt. But wearing them has proven first to be safer than driving without them. Second, you are much less likely to be killed in a car wreck if you are wearing a seat belt. Third, you are much less likely to get seriously injured if you are wearing one. Finally, you can save your life and the life of others who join you on a journey. So why not take the safer way? Why not go the way that has been proven to result in fewer deaths? You do want to live, don't you

In a paragraph of FOUR sentences ONLY, summarise and paraphrase the passage above in answer to the following question

 ? What are the benefits of wearing seat belts

READING COMPREHENSION

- Read the following passage carefully, then answer the questions that follow
Called the ‘Red Planet’, Mars is roughly half the size of Earth, and one of our closest neighbouring planets. Though Mars is the most Earth-like of any other planet, the two are still greatly different.
Living on Mars has been the stuff of science fiction for decades. However, can humans really live on Mars? Will it ever be possible or safe? NASA (the National Aeronautics and Space Administration) hopes to find out. NASA researchers on Earth are conducting several experiments together with the International Space Station (ISS) to study the health and safety issues that may tell us if life on Mars is possible.
Food and oxygen would be the main necessities for travellers living long periods on Mars. The need to grow plants, which provide both food and oxygen, would be the key. Compared to Earth, the decreased gravity and low atmospheric pressure of Mars will stress the plants and make them hard to grow. However, space station crews are growing plants in controlled environments in two of the station’s greenhouses. They take care of the plants, photograph them, and collect samples to be sent back to Earth. Researchers then use the data to develop new techniques that will make it possible to grow plants successfully in space. Another concern for space travellers is the health hazards caused by the effect of space radiation on humans. A spacecraft travelling to Mars would be exposed to large amounts of radiation. Since human exposure to such intense radiation would mean certain death, the spacecraft used for such travel would have to protect the humans on the inside of the
craft from exposure. Researchers are using special machines inside the crews’ areas of the International
Space Station to carefully watch radiation levels. NASA scientists, who have maintained radiation data since the beginning of human space flight, continue to learn about the dangers it causes. Will it ever be safe for humans to live on Mars? It is still too early to say. But thanks to the dedicated researchers of NASA and the results of ISS experiments, we are getting closer to knowing every day.

Many people catch a cold in the springtime. When the virus attacks your body, your body works hard to get rid of it. First, blood rushes to your nose and brings congestion with it. You feel terrible because you can't breathe well, but your body is actually "eating" the virus. Then, your temperature rises, and you get a fever, but the heat of your body is killing the virus. In addition, you get a runny nose to stop the virus from getting to your cells. You also may experience sore muscles as your immune system attacks foreign invaders. Luckily, your body has its ways to fight off cold and get you back to health.

In a paragraph of FOUR sentences ONLY, summarize and paraphrase the passage above in answer to the following question

VI- READING COMPREHENSION (110 Marks)

Read the following passage carefully, then answer the questions that follow
One of the biggest and most expensive transportation projects in the world is bridge building. Bridges are important links that carry cars, trucks and trains across bodies of water, mountains or other roads. As a result, they have to be strong so that they won’t fall or collapse.
Bridge collapses can be tragic events, leading to loss of life and serious property damage. That's why bridge engineers, designers and builders must always take their jobs very seriously. The best way for them to prevent these accidents is to understand why bridges collapse in the first place. Understanding bridge collapses can lead to major changes in the design, construction and safety of future building projects.
There are many reasons why bridges fall which can be either due to their design or to external factors. Historically, more bridges were made of wood and were much more sensitive to fire. This was particularly true of old train bridges that would sometimes catch fire and burn to the ground. Besides, a large number of bridge accidents occur during the construction of the bridge itself. These accidents are often due to an error made by the engineers, such as a miscalculation. The bridge collapses under its own weight, and this can be deadly for the workers on it at the time. Additionally, earthquakes damage all structures, including bridges. Luckily, this kind of collapse is relatively infrequent, especially with modern bridges. Engineers have learned to design bridges in earthquake zones on areas that are much more resistant to movement. Moreover, some bridge collapses are mysteries, and engineers only realise the reasons after they do a complete research. In some cases, this could happen because
low-quality material was used in the construction, or because of a problem in an important part
of the bridge. In other cases, the bridge was designed only to support a certain amount of
weight and no more. As for external factors bridge collapses can be due to boat or train crashes. Both kinds
of accidents are extremely rare, but boats and trains can cause a bridge to collapse for different reasons. With trains, it's the high speed that can bring a bridge down. With boats, it's the heavy weight that can cause the collapse, even if they are moving very slowly when the crash happens.
The best way to avoid bridge failures is to plan for them. Modern technologies that can detect structural weakness, safer working environments and better designs can all help to reduce these terrible accidents.

From a, b, c and d choose the correct answer: (5 X 10 = 50 Marks)

28. ? What is the best title for the passage

a) Civil Engineers

b) Bridge Collapses

c) Means of Transportation

d) Devastating Earthquakes

29. The underlined word “infrequent” in the 3 rd paragraph is closest in meaning to

a) unreal

b) invisible

c) uncommon

d) incorrect

30. The underlined pronoun “they” in the 1 st paragraph refers to

a) bridges

b) mountains

c) other roads

d) trucks and trains

31. According to the passage, when engineers understand why bridges fall down, they can

a) stop using boats and trains.

b) create expensive transportation projects.

c) stop designing bridges in earthquake zones.

d) make changes in the designs, construction and safety of future bridges.

32. According to the passage, all the following sentences are NOT TRUE EXCEPT

a) All bridges are made of wood.

b) Boat and train crashes never cause bridge collapses.

c) Bridges are frequently damaged by earthquakes.

d) Good planning is important to avoid bridge failures.

B) With reference to the passage, answer the following questions: (4 x 15 = 60 marks)

33.  ? In what way are bridges important

It is hard to know where to start when beginning strength training. There are countless exercises that you can do. Some work with certain body types while others don't. With some familiarity of the basics, you can begin to craft a routine to achieve your personal goals. Strength training should be part of your workout routine due to its numerous benefits. One benefit is building muscles and improving bone density. In addition, strength training increases the strength of ligaments and joint functioning. It can also help raise good cholesterol levels and lower blood sugar levels. Most people like strength training because of its most obvious benefit which is having a slimmer appearance.
