The following text for questions 18 to 20.
A Mouse who always lived on the land, by an unlucky chance, formed an intimate acquaintance with a Frog, who lived, for the most part, in the water.
One day, the Frog was intent on mischief. He tied the foot of the Mouse tightly to his own. Thus joined together, the Frog led his friend, the Mouse, to the meadow where they usually searched for food.
After this, he gradually led him towards the pond in which he lived, until reaching the banks of the water, he suddenly jumped in, dragging the Mouse with him.
The Frog enjoyed the water amazingly, and swam croaking about, as if he had  done a good deed. The unhappy Mouse was soon sputtered and drowned in the water, and his poor dead body floating about on the surface.
A Hawk observed the foating Mouse from the sky, and dove down and grabbed it with his talons, carrying it back to his nest. The Frog, being still fastened to the leg of the Mouse, was also carried off a prisoner, and was eaten by the Hawk.

Hello Sarah,

I want you to know how awful I feel about letting you down. I know you were really counting on me to leave you alone and I blew it! You must be frustrated and angry with me and I don't blame you. Nothing is more aggravating than having to deal with a flake who can't be depended on. Ordinarily, I am very responsible and reliable. I wish I had a good excuse for why I failed you, but I'm afraid there just isn't one. I hope you'll forgive me for this lapse on my part. Again, I am terribly sorry.


Jim Karter

The following text is questions 25 and 26.

Tyrannosaurus rex, sometimes just called T-rex, is believed to be the largest and most fearsome predator on Earth's land ever to have existed.
      This dinosaur once lived in the Creataceous period approximately 68 to 65 million years ago. The T-rex lived in a humid, semi-tropical environment, in open forests with nearby rivers and in coastal forested swamps. The seasons were mild.
      Tyrannosaurus rex was up to 40 feet (12.4 m) long, about 15 to 20 feet (4.6 to 6 m) tall. The arms were only about 3 feet (1 m) long. Tyrannosaurus rex was roughly 5 to 7 tons in weight.
      As a carnivorous dinosaur, this giant predator most likely ambushed their prey, and devoured them with jaws full of white sharp teeth. With its fast ability to run at an astonishing speed of 32 mph (50 kmh), a perfect slim and stiff tail that gave it an excellent balance and allowed it to make quick turns, equipped this gigantic predator and made it even more deadly, like a killing machine.

A grizzly bear killed a 57-year-old man hiking in Yellowstone National Park with his wife Wednesday. It's the first fatal bear mauling in the park since 1986.
      The bears involved in Wednesday's encounter have not been captured, and park officials said they did not immediately have enough information to determine what measures, if any, they might take in the aftermath of the attack.
       According to the AP, Yellowstone National Park is home to at least 600 grizzly bears, though some say the population is over 1,000. While the attack is the first fatal mauling in the park since 1986, it's the third in the region in little over a year.

I was fed up! I wanted to go home. Mum and dad had forced me and my two sisters – Jenny and Mary to go for a Sunday afternoon walk in the park. I could see my footprints in the snowy path. Like atrail of breadcrumbs in the forest showing me the way home.
      I stopped and listened to the music around me. I could hear the wind howling like a stray hungry dog for a yummy bone. The branches of the trees that used to whisper and rustle had become bare, brown bones and the grass was covered with a white sparkling blanket. Then I saw a web shimmer and glimmer beneath a pale sun. My breath was like silky soft smoke wafting up into the freezing cold air.
     Suddenly there was mum with a big cup of liquid heaven. She handed it to me with an enormous smile on her face. “Here you are Jo, this will keep you warm.” I slowly sipped the delicious liquid and felt it dripping and slipping down into my tummy like lava flowing down a mountainside.

Seasons come to us regularly. We have probably noticed that it gets warmer in summer or dry season while it gets colder in the winter or wet season. However do we know how these seasons change?
       Seasons happen and change every year. This happens because the earth tilts back and forth as it goes around the sun. During the summer, the earth tilts toward the sun. It makes half of the earth hotter. This condition is what we call summer. During the other half of the year, the earth tilts away from the sun. As a result, it makes that half of the earth cooler. This cool condition is then what we call winter.
        The different parts of the world have the same season at different times. In the northern half of the world , winter happens during the months of December, January and February. The regions are such North America and Europe. In the other hand, the southern half of the world have winter during the months of June, July and August.The regions are like South America and Australia. How does this difference happen? The same season happens at different times because the top and bottom halves of the earth tilt away from the sun at different times.

The following text is for questions 36 to 38.
Drug users are actually ill people who need to be helped. Rehabilitation is one of the main things that they should get. Instead of punishing and stacking them in prisons which are getting full, the government should provide rehabilitation for them. Most users are actually victims of persuasive peddlers and they suffer from consuming the drugs. Therefore, by rehabilitating them, we are actually helping them out of a trap, which they might accidentally step on. They then, can start a normal life again.
 Furthermore, if we only arrest drug users and send them to jail it doesn’t solve the problem because the drug users will still be addicts unless being properly treated. Jails will be filled up with drug users. Moreover, the users will still be users after released from prison. They then, will be arrested again.
By providing rehabilitating programmes for drug users and forcing them to participate on the programmes is a better way than only arresting them and do nothing on their illness.        
Moreover, the prison will not be so full and packed up with users. Only drug dealers, traffickers, and wholesalers should be imprisoned instead.
36. What will  happen if the drug users do not get a rehabilitation?
A. They will persuade the others to use the drugs
B.  They will still be addicted to drugs

The following text is for questions  39 to 41

Working and going to school is challenging, it can be a rewarding experience if you use some foresight. However, you’d better think a hundred times before you decide to take a part time job. There are a lot of things that should be considered to take a part time job.
 Working and still maintaining a good grade at school is not an easy task. Having less time for schoolwork becomes the main negative effect. Consequently, many students who work part time fail to perform at their best both on schoolwork and on examinations. Moreover, a part- time job can really interfere with the students’ free time. It also cuts into their studies or social life.
On the positive side , a part time job helps students to support day to day living expenses. Working can be a valuable part of a student’s life. Students can derive a great deal from working. In most cases, they can acquire a nice dose of discipline and a whole new set of skills and experiences. Another benefit of part time work is the opportunity to expand the resume. Ideally, a student should try to find a job that is related in some way to his or her selected field of study. But if not, a student can still gain some work experience and develop his or her skills.
Working takes a lot of time and energy, so students need to make sure to be able to handle both employment and their current commitments. Finally, if you are considering working part time, talk to your school counsellor to discuss this move. Explaining your goals to someone else can help you make decisions and figure out your priorities.
