    Correct Answer
    B. Goldilocks didn't follow safety procedures.
    Explanation
    Goldilocks didn't follow safety procedures because she entered a stranger's house without permission and made herself at home without knowing who lived there or if it was safe to do so. This can be dangerous as it puts her at risk of encountering someone who may not welcome her presence or may pose a threat to her safety. It is important to always prioritize personal safety and follow proper procedures when exploring unfamiliar places.

    Farmers in Japan have a problem. There is not much land to farm, and there are many people to feed. Some farmers cut rows in the hillsides and grow crops there. This helps a little, but many kinds of food are shipped to Japan. They can choose anything they want to eat!

    • A.

      There is little land to farm in Japan; so many kinds of food are shipped to Japan.

      Growing food on the hillside in Japan is hard work.

    • C.

      The Japanese like getting food from different countries.

    Correct Answer
    A. There is little land to farm in Japan; so many kinds of food are shipped to Japan.

    Were you born after 1985? If so, how long do you expect to live? Most people born after 1985 can expect to live more than 70 years. Of course, this is just a guess based on past records.

    • C.

      About the health of females

    Correct Answer
    B. How long you might expect to live

    The answer "how long you might expect to live" is correct because the passage discusses the life expectancy of individuals born after 1985. It mentions that most people born after 1985 can expect to live more than 70 years, based on past records. The passage also mentions that females can expect to live about six years longer than males, further emphasizing the idea of life expectancy. Therefore, the passage primarily focuses on providing information about how long individuals born after 1985 might expect to live.

    Babies use both hands. But babies use one hand more than the other. This hand may become the preferred one. How can you tell? Lay a baby on its back. Notice which side the baby faces. If the baby looks to the right most of the time, it will probably be right-handed. What does it mean if the baby faces left more often? The baby will most likely be left-handed.

    • A.

      How to tell right- from left-handed babies

    • B.

      That babies use their hands for many things

    • C.

      That there are more left-handed babies

    Correct Answer
    A. How to tell right- from left-handed babies
    Explanation
    The explanation for the correct answer "how to tell right- from left-handed babies" is that the passage provides a method to determine whether a baby will be right-handed or left-handed based on their preferred side when lying on their back. If the baby looks to the right most of the time, they will likely be right-handed, and if they face left more often, they will likely be left-handed. This information directly addresses the question of how to differentiate between right-handed and left-handed babies.
