    D. Light bulbs
    Explanation
    Ember began to run out of light bulbs. This suggests that the community in Ember is facing a shortage of light bulbs, which could have significant implications for their daily lives. Light bulbs are essential for providing light and visibility, especially during the dark hours. A shortage of light bulbs would mean that the community would have to find alternative sources of light or live in darkness, impacting their ability to perform tasks, study, and navigate their surroundings effectively.

      500 years

    Correct Answer
    C. 200 years
    Explanation
    The Builders expected the people to stay in Ember for at least 200 years. This suggests that the city of Ember was designed to be self-sustaining and provide all the necessary resources for its inhabitants for a long period of time. The expectation of a 200-year stay indicates that the city was built with a long-term vision and intended to be a permanent settlement rather than a temporary one.

    • B.

    • D.

      Doon wanted to work on the generator near the pipeworks.

    Correct Answer
    D. Doon wanted to work on the generator near the pipeworks.
    Explanation
    Doon wanted to trade jobs with Lina because he wanted to work on the generator near the pipeworks. This suggests that Doon had a specific interest in working on the generator and being close to the pipeworks. It implies that he had a desire to work on something more technical or mechanical, which appealed to him more than Lina's easier job. Additionally, it does not mention anything about Doon's friends making fun of him or his injured leg preventing him from running all over Ember, so these reasons can be ruled out as explanations for his desire to trade jobs.

  • 8. 

    What is Ember's natural resource?  (one word)

    Correct Answer
    river
    Explanation
    Ember's natural resource is a river. This suggests that the town of Ember has access to a water source that is essential for various purposes such as drinking, agriculture, and transportation. The presence of a river indicates that Ember is likely located near a water body, providing a sustainable and reliable source of water for its inhabitants.

    • C.

      Kept items that were no longer useful

    • D.

      Climbed stairs

    Correct Answer
    B. Met a person from elsewhere
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "met a person from elsewhere." This can be inferred from the context that the people of Ember have never encountered someone from outside their community. This suggests that Ember is isolated and does not have contact with the outside world, hence they have never met someone from elsewhere.

It could be that her job involves sensitive information or activities that require a high level of secrecy or privacy, which would be compromised by the use of telephones. Alternatively, her job might involve a technological or operational aspect that is incompatible with the presence of telephones, such as interference with certain equipment or communication systems.
