5. Read the following passage, then answer the questions:

 

Although hydroelectric power plants cause less pollution than other types of power plants, they cause other environmental problems. Firstly, when a dam is built, a large area of land is flooded and often many people are forced to leave their farms and homes. Secondly, the rotting plants in the flooded area make the greenhouse gas methane, whose emissions can be very high. Thirdly, the dam prevents fish from swimming upstream to get to the places where they reproduce, so fish populations are reduced. There are other problems. The water exiting the turbines has a different oxygen level and is much warmer. This harms the plants and animals living downstream from the dam. Finally, because the water exiting the turbines has less sediment (solid substances) in it, it wears away the river banks downstream. Scientists must examine all the possible side effects of a new dam while it is in the planning stages.

 

 

a.

6. Read the following passage, then answer the questions:

5. Read the following passage, then answer the questions:
Flowers produce a fine powder called pollen, which is carried by the wind or by insects to other flowers of the same type so that they can produce seeds. Pollination, the carrying of pollen from one flower to another, is necessary for the reproduction of plants and for the production of food. Scientists estimate that one third of our food depends on insects, mostly bees, for pollination.

 

But in recent years, there has been a big drop in the populations of pollinators worldwide. There are several reasons. The use of pesticides has had the side effect of killing pollinators. Air pollution prevents insects from smelling and finding flowers, which they need for food. Diseases are killing many insects. Growing cities are destroying the environments where pollinators live. Recently, shortages of fruit and vegetables in India were blamed on the loss of pollinators. Clearly, it is important that we find solutions quickly.

Give short answers to the following questions:

1.

What is a pollinator?

Is all pollen carried by insects? Explain.

Which is the best title for this text?

a) The Importance of Bees b) Pollinators in India

c) The Loss of Pollinators d) Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

       

5.

How does air pollution affect pollination?

a) Flowers can’t make pollen.

b) Insects can’t smell the flowers, so they can’t find them to pollinate them.

c) Insects can’t pollinate the flowers because they can’t see them.

d) Pollution kills insects.

 

 

6. Read the following passage, then answer the questions:
Machu Picchu, Peru, is situated more than 2,100 metres above sea level between higher mountains. It is divided into three areas. At the southern end is the agricultural area.

A wall for defence crosses Machu Picchu and separates the agricultural area from the urban and religious areas at the northern end. The urban area has two districts. In the southeastern corner is a district of houses for the nobles. On the eastern side is an industrial district with houses and workshops for labourers. The religious area, on the western side, is on the highest ground. It has temples and tombs. The 140 buildings of Machu Picchu included several design features that made them survive Peru’s frequent earthquakes.

5. Read the following passage, then answer the questions:
 

A geyser is a special type of hot spring in which steam and hot water erupt and are thrown into the air. Some geysers throw water up more than 45 metres. Some geysers erupt at regular intervals and are predictable. One of the most famous, Old Faithful, erupts about every 90 minutes. But most geysers are unpredictable and irregular.

 

Worldwide there are only about 1,000 geysers and half of them are in Yellowstone National Park, USA. Geysers are a rare phenomenon because they form only under certain hydrogeological conditions. If conditions change, geysers can become dormant or extinct. Natural phenomena such as prolonged droughts, earthquakes, or landslides can make this happen. So can human activities such as mining, building dams, throwing trash into the geyser vent, and dewatering by geothermal power plants. Even without human activities, the lifespan of geysers is at most a few thousand years.

 

a.

Give short answers to the following questions:

1.

Are all hot springs geysers? Give a reason for your answer.

6. Read the following passage, then answer the questions:
 

I think that we should start a book club for secondary and university students in our town. We could read both Arabic and English books. We could have meetings every week or two in the summer, and once a month during the school year. Here is why I think we should do it. First, if we have a book club, it will encourage us to read more. It is known that if people read a lot, they write better. So this will help us in two ways. Secondly, we will develop some responsibility if we take turns leading the discussion at meetings. The leader will have to read the book carefully. Thirdly, discussing books will help us to overcome any shyness. Everyone will have to say something. Reading good books will be a better way to use our time than playing games or reading comic books. Don’t you agree with me?
