- Read the following passage carefully, then answer the questions below: 

    For many people who live in cities, parks are an important part of the landscape. They provide a place for people to relax and play sports. What people often overlook is that parks also provide considerable environmental benefits. 

 

     One benefit of parks is that plants absorb carbon dioxide and give oxygen, which humans need to breathe. According to one study, an acre of trees can absorb the same amount of carbon dioxide that a typical car emits in 11,000 miles of driving. Parks also make cities cooler. Scientists have long noted what is called the Urban Heat Island Effect: building materials such as metal, concrete, and asphalt absorb much more of the sun’s heat and release it much more quickly than organic surfaces like trees and grass. Parks and other green spaces help to minimise the Urban Heat Island Effect. 

 

     Unfortunately, many cities cannot easily create more parks because most land is already being used for buildings, roads, parking lots, and other essential parts of the urban environment. However, cities could benefit from many of the positive effects of parks by encouraging citizens to create another type of green space: rooftop gardens. While most people would not think of starting a garden on their roof, human beings have been planting gardens on rooftops for thousands of years. Some rooftop gardens are very complex and require special engineering, but others are simple container gardens that anyone can create with the investment of a few hundred dollars and a few hours of work. 

 

     Rooftop gardens provide many of the same benefits as other urban park and garden spaces, but without taking up the much-needed land. Like parks, rooftop gardens help to replace carbon dioxide in the air with nourishing oxygen. They also help to lessen the Urban Heat Island Effect, which can save money. In summer, rooftop gardens prevent buildings from absorbing heat from the sun, which can significantly reduce cooling bills. Rooftop vegetables and herb gardens can also provide fresh food for people, save their money and make their diets healthier. Rooftop gardens are not only something everyone can enjoy, they are also a smart environmental investment. 

 

From a, b, c and d choose the correct answer: 

 

The best title for the passage would be...... 

The Importance of Parks

Building Materials 

The Urban Heat Effect 

   

What does the underlined word “complex” in paragraph three (3) mean? a) easy

 Unit 7 – READING COMPREHENSION - 2   

 

- 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 think you 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 unappealing 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 coloring. 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 center slice of the reddest tomato are selected and then sprayed with glycerin to keep them looking fresh. 

 

    So, the next time you see a delectable hamburger in a fast-food commercial, remember: 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: 

 

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

The food Stylist                                            

Bright Lights 

Hamburgers 

Fast food Commercials 

 

The underlined word ‘soggy in the 3rd paragraph means: 

wet 

ugly 

attractive                                           

tasteless 

 

 

 

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

questions                                                         

millions of people 

commercials                                      

fast food companies 

 

According to the passage, the food stylist’s job is to: 

make food products look perfect.      

make the most delicious products.   

cook tasty hamburgers.                                        

cook the inside and outside of the bun. 

 

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

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

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

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

Glycerin is used to make lettuce and tomato look fresh. 

 

B) With reference to the passage, answer the following questions:  

 

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

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

Why does the food stylist only cook the outside of the meat? 

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

How are the grill marks made on the fast-food commercial? 

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

How does the food stylist make the hamburger look fresh? 

……………………………………………………………………………………………………… Unit 7 – SUMMARY MAKING   

 

Read the following passage, then do as required: 

 

         Festivals are gatherings and activities to express joy at a new or remembered event. As societies change, the characteristics of their traditional festivals and celebrations may alter also; new ones often emerge as others decline in popularity. 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. Beyond the public enjoyment of a celebration, festivals in old societies provided an opportunity for the elders to pass on folk knowledge to younger generations. Moreover, modern festivals centering 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 life– style of all peoples and make a contribution 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?

Read the following passage carefully, then answer the questions below: 

         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 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! 

 

From a, b, c and d choose the correct answer: 

 

The best title for the passage could be : 

Chicago World’s Fair 

Ferris Wheel, a Relaxing Ride 

The Thrill of a Roller Coaster 

Santa Monica Pier

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………  Unit – 8 - Reading Comprehension -2 

 

Read the following passage carefully, then answer the questions below: 

         The most precious fluid on earth is not oil, but water. There are few challenges as important as conserving the world's usable water and supplying clean drinking water and water for irrigation to those who need it. Yet this work is not getting done. Humans are consuming the earth's store of usable water at a rate that will soon threaten our food supply. Poor water management already kills millions of people a year and condemns hundreds of millions to hunger. 

         

         Providing poor areas with drinking water and sanitation, for example, is easy to do and a costeffective way to prevent deaths and disease.  There is now an opportunity for progress. More than 100 water ministers from around the world, along with thousands of water experts from villagers to scientists, have gathered in the Netherlands. The conference will be useful if it can persuade governments and international banks to pay more attention to conservation and fair distribution of water.   

                  

          In 1980, the U.N. set a goal of safe drinking water for all by 1990. Because of international concern, about two billion new people received clean drinking water over the subsequent 14 years. A new commitment is urgently needed to spread these health gains, help poor farmers and conserve the world's precious supply of usable water. 

                  

          Most of us have plenty of water for our daily needs, maybe even an excess as is the case in the Netherlands at the moment with heavy rainfalls. Regardless of our seeming abundance of this resource, it is still important to use water carefully. You can save water in your daily life and be an example for others of good water stewardship by washing dishes by hand and not allowing the water to run while rinsing. In addition, try to install an instant water heater near your kitchen sink so you don't have to run the water while it heats up. This also reduces energy costs. Furthermore, by insulating your water pipes, you'll get hot water faster plus you avoid wasting water while it heats up. Finally, when buying new appliances such as a washing machine, consider those that offer cycle and load size adjustments. They're more water and energy efficient.   

 

 From a, b, c and d choose the correct answer: 

 

Paragraph 4 is mainly about: 

New brands of washing machines 

New sources of energy 

Different ways to preserve water 

Ways to conserve water and energy 

 

The underlined word excess in paragraph 4 is the antonym of: a) Settlement     

Improvement 

Shortage                                                           

Tension 

 

 

The underlined word it in paragraph 2 refers to: 

progress                                                           

conference 

Netherlands                                                           

world 

 

One of the following categories, probably, did Not attend Netherlands water conference: a) Historians 

Ministers 

Villagers 

Scientists   

  

The purpose of the writer is to:   

inform the readers about familiar irrigation systems. 

entertain the readers with ancient stories about water. 

persuade people to conserve water and use it wisely. 

explain how to distribute water among poor nations. 

 

B) With reference to the passage, answer the following questions:  

 

According to paragraph 3, what did the United Nations aim to do by 1990? 

………………………………………………………………………………………………………… 

 

According to paragraph 2, how can deaths and diseases be prevented in poor areas? 

…………………………………………………………………………………………………….

 

Why is it important to buy washing machines that offer cycle and load size adjustments? 

…………………………………………………………………………………………………….

According to the passage, suggest ways for saving water.

Unit – 8 Summary Making 

 

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

 

 Winter is cold in some places. Animals get through this time in many ways. First, Birds and butterflies fly away. Many of them do not stick around for the winter. They go to a place with nice weather and come home in spring. Migrating is a clever way to avoid the cold. Another effective way to avoid the cold is to sleep through it. Many animals hide during the winter. Their bodies slow down to save energy. They live off their fat. This is hibernation. Snakes, frogs and bears hibernate. In addition, Some animals store food in their homes. They live on what they saved in the summer and fall. This is what squirrels do. Other animals tough it out. Finally, to survive, animals grow thicker coats in winter. Other animals, such as the arctic fox, change color. Winter may be pretty. It is nice to see snow on the 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?

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, or at school, or at 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 a muscle very much. 

 

        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 realizes that difficulties at home, or at work, or at 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 be also a signal of a more serious problem. So, patients should realize that there is no magic cure for headaches, but doctors can control most of them. 

 

From a, b, c and d choose the correct answer: 

The best title for this passage would be:

Read the following passage carefully then answer the questions below: 

 

 When we talk about time, there seem to be just two ways of perceiving it: some people complain about never having any, others are always looking for ways to kill time. But time is actually very fairly distributed. Everyone gets 60 minutes per hour and 24 hours per day. Yet, it is only the daily tasks that are distributed unequally. They make the day too short for some people and too long for others. 

 

    A schedule can help people fight their way through too many tasks. It shows us how the 168 hours of a week are spent. By means of such schedule, we can observe critically the aspects we like and the ones we don't. Some of the results might even shock us – when we realize, for instance, how much time we spend watching television and how little time remains for people closest to us. By using time schedule techniques, you can improve your ability to function more effectively – even when time is tight and pressures are high. 

 

    Often time problems are caused by an external situation. In our work, we usually have no choice but to fix dates and to be on time for appointments. But time problems also have their roots in our fears and desires. Postponing work is another element of time problems. When you postpone your work, you feel guilty that you haven't started; you come to fear doing the task; and, eventually, everything catches up with you when you fail to complete the work on time. People insist on controlling or doing all of the work themselves because they can't trust anyone else to do it correctly. 

 

    There are so many ways that you can use to improve your time management skills and increase the productivity at work. You should prioritise your tasks: Before the start of the day, make a list of tasks that need your immediate attention as unimportant tasks can consume much of your precious time. When you have a task at hand, set a realistic deadline and stick to it. Challenge yourself and meet the deadline. Reward yourself for meeting a difficult challenge. Whenever you find yourself free for 10-15 minutes, take a break. Too much stress can badly affect your productivity. Take a walk, listen to some music or do some quick stretches. 

 

From a, b,  c and d choose the correct answer: 

 

The best title for this passage could be: 

Ways of Killing Time         

Pressures of Fears and Desires 

The Daily Tasks and the Daily Routine

Time Management, Problems and Solutions 

         

The underlined word "ones"   in paragraph (2) refers to: 

means 

Tasks 

aspects 

hours 

 

The main idea of paragraph (3) is: 

How one feels when postponing work. 

There are causes of time problems. 

Having a schedule is important. 

We can improve time management.
