C. Reading Comprehension and Set Books  (11 marks)

6. Read the following passage, then answer the questions.  (7 marks)   

Some animals in northern countries have a way to adapt to long, cold winter  weather. It is called hibernation. Hibernation is like deep sleep. This allows the animals to save their energy when there is no food. These animals’ bodies go through several changes during their hibernation. For example, the bear is the largest animal that hibernates.  Its heart normally beats 40 to 50 times per minute. When the bear is hibernating, its heart beats only 8 to 12 times per minute. Its body temperature also drops.

Some animals hibernate all winter without waking. Other animals wake up now and then to eat some of the food they have stored for winter.

When the weather becomes colder in the autumn, a substance called Hibernation Inducement Trigger (HIT) becomes active in the blood of animals that hibernate. The HIT makes the animals start to prepare for winter by either storing food or eating a lot to add more fat to their bodies. This fat helps their bodies to keep warm and is a source of energy during the animals’ hibernation.

     a.    Egypt and Libya

     b.    South Africa and Australia

     c.    Sudan and China

     a.    Hibernation Inducement Trigger  

     b.    Hibernation In Active Temperature

     c.    Hibernation Includes True Hibernators  

     d.    None of the above

3.  The bear’s heartbeat goes down to ____ beats per minute during hibernation.

     a.    8-12

6. Read the following passage, then answer the questions. (7 marks)

What inspires someone to make a new invention? Most inventors are inspired by need. Louis Braille, who was born in 1809, lost his sight when he was a child. However, his parents helped him to continue his education. His teachers helped him a lot and he reached the top of his class. At the age of ten, he was given money to study at the Royal Institution for Blind Youth, where he started to use a simple raised-print system for reading.              

Louis Braille invented a better system based on raised dots. The dots are put into patterns in a rectangle which has six positions for dots. The different arrangements of the dots represent the letters of the alphabet or other characters. There are symbols for punctuation marks and for math and music. A blind person reads by feeling the dots with their finger tips.

Braille writing was not well known until sixteen years after its inventor’s death in 1852. Today, it is used in almost every country in the world and is considered the standard form of reading and writing for the blind.

6. Read the following passage, then answer the questions.    (7 marks)

 

     Natural resources are materials found on the earth. They include air, water, and land. They also include rocks, minerals, and soil. Even living things are natural resources. Some of earth's resources can be used and replaced over and over again. These are called renewable resources. Others cannot be replaced quickly. These are called nonrenewable resources.

     Examples of renewable resources are fresh air, water, trees, other living things. People cut down trees to use their wood to build and make paper. If a tree is cut, another can be planted in its place. As it grows, it helps supply living things with oxygen, which is another important resource. Animals are used for food by other living things and they can reproduce naturally.

     Coal, oil, copper, silver, and gold are all examples of nonrenewable resources. These substances and materials are available in limited amounts and cannot be replaced quickly. Coal and oil deposits beneath the earth formed millions of years ago. These resources are the result of the decay of certain plants and animals. Natural resources are necessary for life on earth. Someday these precious materials will run out. We need to protect them by reducing, reusing, and recycling them.
