Read the passage below and answer the questions 58. Unite-22; Lesson – 4(B)

Scientists have been experimenting with the idea of living in space for a long time. But it is not easy to live in space. There is no gravity and the body needs a lot of adjusting to do. One of the scientists reported that his heartbeat had become slower and bones and muscles had felt weaker as calcium had been decreasing from them. His head had felt heavy as there was no gravity to keep blood down in the legs and there was also a feeling of space sickness which is like travel sickness. Doing everyday jobs also becomes difficult. Water cannot be poured because it stays in one place like a big ball. If you want a drink, you must do it with straw from a closed container. If you sprinkle salt it spreads all around you and heavy objects can be moved with one finger as they have no weight. Astronauts therefore need months of training to be able to adjust to conditions in space.

5. Write short answers to the following questions. 15=5

(a) What makes the scientists experiment with the space?

(b) What is the report about space gravity?

(c) Point out the main effect of the space gravity?

(e) What does space adjustment require?

7. Summarize the main points of the passage in five short sentences. 15=5

Pre-test Examination—2015; English : Paper I

Part-A : Seen Comprehension (40 Marks)

Read the passage below and answer the questions 14. Unite-6; Lesson – 3(B)

In recent years, there have been many alarming reports that the world's climate is undergoing a significant change. All these reports provide strong evidence that world temperatures are increasing day by day. This increase in global warming is caused by increased amounts of carbon dioxide around the earth. Most climatologists believe that the greenhouse effect is the likely cause of this global warming.

What is the greenhouse effect? It is the gradual warming of the air surrounding the earth as a result of heat being trapped by environmental pollution. This is exemplified by the destruction and burning down of tropical rain forests, by traffic that clogs up city streets, by the rapid growth of industry, the use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in packaging and manufacturing commercial products, the use of detergents such as washing powder and washing-up liquid and so on. The oceans are also said to be affected both because of human waste and because of pollution caused by industrial waste products, oil seeping from damaged supertankers and from other maritime disasters. However, the main culprits for global warming are carbon dioxide gas, produced by the burning of fossil fuels and forests, and pollutants such as methane and chlorofluorocarbons. Climatologists predict that midway through the next century, temperatures may have risen by as much as 4C. This could catastrophically reduce mankind's ability to grow food, destroy or severely damage wildlife and wilderness, raise sea levels and thereby flood coastal areas and farmland. The alarming news about Bangladesh is that as a result of the rise of the sea level, the lower southern part of the country may one day go under water.

1. Choose the right word/phrase to complete each sentence. 15=5

(a) According to majority of the climatologists, the greenhouse effect is the

plausible/probable/prime cause of the global warming.

(b) The global warming may have a disastrous/magnificent/heinous effect on life on earth.

(c) The burning of fossil fuels, forest and various pollutants is the effect/root/source of carbon

dioxide gas.

(d) The dumping of industrial wastes and waste-products into the ocean

affects/causes/diminishes environment pollution.

(e) The rise of temperature may one day damages/swallows/submerges the lower southern

part of Bangladesh.

2. True/false? If false, give the correct information. 15=5

(a) Carbon dioxide gas is the only culprit for global warming.

(b) The greenhouse effect is a global phenomenon.

(c) Fossil fuels and forests are some of the main culprits for global warming.

(d) The greenhouse effect can be diminished if we can reduce the environmental pollution.

(e) Global warming is good for the cold countries of the world.

3. Fill in the gaps with the correct form of words given in brackets. Add any prepositions if necessary. 15=5

(a) The greenhouse effects may be the cause of (destruct) ——wildlife and wilderness.

(b) According to the (believe) ——the climatologists, the greenhouse effect is the most likely cause of the global warming.

(c) If the sea level rises abnormally, we have reason to be (worry).

(d) Carbon dioxide is (produce) ——the burning of fossil fuels and forests.

(e) Even the oceans are getting (pollution) ——.

4. Make a list of five effects of global warming. 15=5

Read the passage below and answer the questions 58. Unite-21; Lesson – 4(B)

Sports are a popular form of entertainment. Many international sporting events are organised from time to time. Most of these events are sponsored by multinational manufacturing companies and business firms. They pay for the sports events in exchange for the right to advertise their products during those events. These events are telecast worldwide by satellite and people all over the world watch them live. As a result, the sponsors' products receive maximum media coverage thus giving companies international recognition. This is only the commercial aspect of international sport but there are other aspects too. The sports venue becomes a meeting place of people from different countries. When people of different nations get together on the occasion of an international sporting event, they come closer to each other, sharing views, opinions and friendship. This opportunity creates a sense of brotherhood and a spirit of mutual co-operation among them. Moreover, getting acquainted with different cultures helps to break down prejudice and broaden outlook. If globalisation has anything to do with the development of international relationship, then sports can certainly contribute in a big way to this.

5. Write short answers to the following questions. 15=5

(a) Who help organize the international sporting events?

(b) Why do companies and business firms sponsor international sporting events?

(c) How are the events telecast?

(d) How do the people of different nations come close to each other?
