    Like Earth, the sun has several different forms of visible activity, or weather. But unlike Earth, the sun’s weather is created by forces deep within the sun rather than in its atmosphere. The sun is made of electrically charged particles, which create a strong magnetic field around the sun. Because the sun rotates slightly faster at its equator than it does at its poles, this magnetic field slowly gets pulled out of balance. A helpful analogy, is to think of sun’s magnetic field as a giant rubber band. As the sun rotates, the rubber band slowly twists, becoming tighter and tigher.It is this rising imbalance in its magnetic field that gives the sun its first form of weather. As the magnetic field of the sun gets twisted, it gets focused on one part of the sun’s surface, resulting in an area where the magnetic field is much stronger than on the rest of the sun. This incredibly strong magnetic field prevents heat from rising up from the center of the sun to this area of the surface. The result is an area of the sun’s surface which is cooler than the rest of the surface. Because they are cooler than the rest of the sun, these sunspots appear to be darker. These dark spots can be several times the size of Earth, and astronomers have noticed them for hundreds of years. Sunspots appear to follow an 11-year cycle of activity. Although no one has been able to adequately explain the causes for this cycle as of yet, it seems that the height of the cycle represents the time of greatest imbalance in the sun’s magnetic field, resulting in more sunspots.Eventually, the magnetic field around a sunspot will become so twisted that it will snap. All the energy that has been stored in the twists of the magnetic field will be released in one moment. The result is a huge jump in temperature called a solar flare. In as little as ten seconds, the temperature will rise to as much as 20 million degrees, up from about 1 billion. Solar flares also release huge amounts of radiation, primarily in the form of X-rays, into space. When this radiation reaches the Earth, it can damage satellites and affect weather pattern.

    Until about 250 years ago, households did not take dirt as (45) …………………… as they do now – it was a fact of life, and that was that.

    Primitive man found out by trial and error how to carry out a certain number of simple chemical changes, but under the ancient Egyptian civilization men learned how to work copper, tin, iron and precious metals; knew how to make pottery, glass, soap and colouring agents, and how to bleach and dye textile fabrics. These arts were the beginnings of the chemical industries of today.The early scientific study of chemistry, known as alchemy, grew up in the first few centuries A.D. at Alexandria in Egypt. There two important things came together: one was the practical knowledge of the Egyptian workers in metals, pottery and dyes; the other was the learning of the earlier Greek philosophers, such as Hippocrates and Aristotle. At the same time alchemy was much influenced by ideas from the East about magic and astrology – foretelling the future from the stars.Greek philosophers regarded debate about the nature of matter as superior to experiment, and some held that all matter was made up of the same four ‘elements’ – earth, fire, air and water. Many people therefore thought that if these elements could be rearranged, one substance could be changed into another. For instance, a base metal could perhaps be turned into gold. The chief aim of the alchemists was to find a way of doing this.Alchemy came under Arab influence when the armies of Islam conquered Egypt during the seventh century. The Arabs carried its study into Western Europe when they advanced into Spain. Many Arabic words are still used in chemistry – ‘alkali’, ‘alcohol’ and even ‘alchemy’ itself, which means ‘the art of Egypt’. The greatest Arab alchemist was Jabir ibn Hayyan, possibly the same person as Geber, author of two important books on alchemy known from the Latin translations of the thirteenth century. Jabir claimed that mercury and sulphur were ‘elements’ like the four Greek ones. He said that all metals were composed of mercury and sulphur in different proportions. To change a base metal into gold required the proportions to be changed by the action of a mysterious substance which came to be called ‘the philosopher's stone’. Alchemists searched in vain for this substance for several hundred years. Alchemy was studied widely in Europe during the twelfth and following centuries, and attracted the attention of many learned men. Though they were doomed to fail in their attempts to make gold, their work led to the growth of a great deal of new chemical knowledge and of methods of making experiments. Many of the later European alchemists, however, were complete frauds who preyed upon trusting people by all sorts of tricks, and the subject fell into disrepute. By the first half of the sixteenth century, the aim of the alchemists had changed from the making of gold to the making of medicines. In particular they sought a fanciful substance called ‘the elixir of life’, a powerful medicine which was to cure all ills, and which some people thought would turn out to be the same substance as ‘the philosopher's stone’. This phase of chemistry lasted till about 1700.From Practical Faster Reading by Gerald Mosback and Vivien Mosback, CUP

    Question 1

    • A.

      A. thesis

    • B.

      B. southern

    • C.

      C. south

    • D.

      D. theme

    Correct Answer
    B. B. southern
    Explanation
    The correct answer is B. southern. This answer is correct because it is the only option that is related to the concept of "south." The other options, thesis, south, and theme, do not have any direct connection to the idea of being located or related to the southern region. Therefore, B. southern is the most appropriate answer in this context.

    Question 2

    • A.

      A. liked

    • B.

      B. laughed

    • C.

      C. wicked

    • D.

      D. kissed

    Correct Answer
    C. C. wicked
    Explanation
    The word "wicked" is the correct answer because it is the only option that fits the given question. The question does not provide any context or additional information, so we can assume that the word being sought is a synonym for "liked," "laughed," or "kissed." Out of the given options, "wicked" is the only word that does not have a similar meaning to the other three options.

    • B.

      B. orchestra

    • C.

      C. statistic

    • D.

      D. endeavor

    Correct Answer
    B. B. orchestra
    Explanation
    The word "orchestra" is the only option that refers to a group or organization, whereas the other options refer to professions or concepts. A physician is a medical professional, statistic is a mathematical concept, and endeavor is a general term for a task or project. Therefore, the correct answer is B. orchestra.

    • B.

      B. confer

    • C.

      C. exclude

    • D.

      D. decoy

    Correct Answer
    D. D. decoy
    Explanation
    The word "decoy" means to lure or entice someone or something into a trap or a false sense of security. In the given options, "revere" means to have deep respect or admiration for someone, "confer" means to grant or bestow something, and "exclude" means to deliberately leave someone or something out. None of these options have the same meaning as "decoy", which is why the correct answer is D.

      A. principal

    • B.

      B. integral

    • C.

      C. ambitious

    • D.

      D. receptive

    Correct Answer
    A. A. principal
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A. principal. The word "principal" refers to a person who holds a high position of authority, such as the head of a school or organization. It can also mean the original sum of money invested or loaned, before any interest or additional amounts are added. In the context of the given options, "principal" is the most relevant term that aligns with these definitions. The other options, integral, ambitious, and receptive, do not have the same meanings or associations.

    • C.

      C. clean

    • D.

      D. make

    Correct Answer
    D. D. make
    Explanation
    The correct answer is D. make. The word "make" is the most appropriate choice in this context because it refers to the action of arranging or tidying up the bed in the morning. The other options, such as "do," "create," and "clean," do not specifically convey the act of arranging the bed.

    • A.

      Had loved

    • C.

      Loved

    • D.

      Has loved

    Correct Answer
    C. Loved
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "loved". This is because the sentence is in the past unreal conditional form, indicating a hypothetical situation that did not actually happen. The verb "loved" is in the past tense, which matches the conditional structure of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

    Question 8: It would be _________ for your health to eat less junk food and exercise more.

    • A.

      A. beneficial

    • B.

      B. inorganic

    • C.

      C. inactive

    • D.

      D. controversial

    Correct Answer
    A. A. beneficial
    Explanation
    The question asks for a word that describes something that is good for one's health. Option A, "beneficial," fits this description as it means advantageous or favorable. Eating less junk food and exercising more are both actions that are beneficial for one's health. Option B, "inorganic," is unrelated to health or the context of the question. Option C, "inactive," suggests a lack of physical activity, which is the opposite of what the question is asking for. Option D, "controversial," means causing disagreement or debate, which is not relevant to the topic of health. Therefore, option A is the correct answer.

    Question 10: Nobody likes the play, ..............................?

    • A.

      A. do they

    • B.

      B. don’t they

    • C.

      C. didn’t they

    • D.

      D. did they

    Correct Answer
    A. A. do they
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A. do they. This is because the sentence is in the negative form ("Nobody likes the play") and in English, when we want to make a negative statement into a question, we use the auxiliary verb "do" to form the question. So, the correct question form would be "Nobody likes the play, do they?"

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Question 11: Not only ................................ to determine the depth of the ocean floor, but it is also used to locate oil.

    • A.

      C. seismology is used

    • D.

      D. using seismology

    Correct Answer
    B. B. is seismology used
    Explanation
    The correct answer is B. is seismology used. This answer is correct because it follows the correct structure for the given sentence. The phrase "is seismology used" is in the correct form of the passive voice, which is required to maintain parallelism with the phrase "to determine the depth of the ocean floor." The other options do not follow the correct structure and do not maintain parallelism in the sentence.

    • D.

      D. nourished

    Correct Answer
    D. D. nourished
    Explanation
    Public education in the United States nourished the development of an advanced industrial society. This suggests that public education played a crucial role in supporting and fostering the growth and progress of an industrial society. It implies that education provided the necessary knowledge and skills to individuals, which in turn contributed to the advancement of industries and the overall development of society.

    • C.

      C. same

    • D.

      D. such

    Correct Answer
    A. A. like
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A. like. The sentence structure suggests that the restaurant is popular with film stars and also with people who are similar to film stars in some way. The word "like" is used to compare the restaurant's popularity among film stars to its popularity among others who share similar characteristics or interests.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    Question 14: There's been a slight improvement in his health, but he's not out of the ................................... yet.

    • A.

      Forest

    • B.

      Woods

    • C.

      Ocean

    • D.

      Dangers

    Correct Answer
    B. Woods
    Explanation
    The phrase "he's not out of the woods yet" is an idiom that means the person is not yet out of danger or fully recovered. It originated from the literal meaning of being lost or in danger in a forest, and has since been used figuratively to refer to any situation where someone is still facing risks or challenges. Therefore, the correct answer is "woods" as it matches the idiom's meaning.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    Question 15: . When a fight between two student groups at the university became too intense, the administration was forced to .................................

    • A.

      A. spring up

    • B.

      B. rule out

    • C.

      C. intervene

    • D.

      D. surge

    Correct Answer
    C. C. intervene
    Explanation
    When a fight between two student groups at the university became too intense, the administration was forced to intervene. This means that the administration had to step in or get involved in order to stop or resolve the fight. The phrase "became too intense" suggests that the situation reached a point where the administration had no choice but to take action. The other options, "spring up," "rule out," and "surge," do not accurately describe the action that the administration needed to take in this situation.

    • C.

      C. should – must

    • D.

      D. mustn't – can't

    Correct Answer
    B. B. should not – might
    Explanation
    When you have a small child in the house, you should not leave small objects lying around. Such objects might be swallowed, causing serious injury or even death. This means that it is important to keep small objects out of reach of young children to prevent them from accidentally swallowing them, which could have severe consequences.

    Question 17: You look exhausted. You ............................ in the garden all day. 

    • A.

      A. must have been working

    • B.

      B. must have worked

    • C.

      C. must be working

    • D.

      D. can’t have work

    Correct Answer
    A. A. must have been working
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A. must have been working. This is because the phrase "must have been working" indicates a past action that is likely to have happened based on the speaker's observation of the person being exhausted. The use of the present perfect continuous tense suggests that the person has been working continuously in the garden throughout the day, leading to their exhaustion.

    • C.

      C. are found majestic mountains

    • D.

      D. finding majestic mountains

    Correct Answer
    C. C. are found majestic mountains
    Explanation
    The correct answer is C. are found majestic mountains. This answer uses the correct verb tense and word order to form a grammatically correct sentence. The subject "majestic mountains" is followed by the helping verb "are" to indicate that the mountains exist in the northern and central parts of Idaho.

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      C. broke out

    • D.

      D. passed out

    Correct Answer
    C. C. broke out
    Explanation
    The correct answer is C. broke out. This is because the phrase "broke out" is commonly used to describe someone escaping or fleeing from a place, such as a prison. The sentence suggests that the police have been searching for him ever since he escaped from the prison.

      B. That the Moon

    • C.

      C. When the Moon

    • D.

      D. The Moon which

    Correct Answer
    B. B. That the Moon
    Explanation
    The correct answer is B. That the Moon. This is because the sentence is discussing the idea that the Moon appears larger at the horizon, and "that the Moon" is a phrase that refers to this idea. The phrase "that the Moon" acts as a noun phrase and is the subject of the sentence.

    Correct Answer
    D. D. Thanks. I bought it at Marcy's.
    Explanation
    The correct response for Jane to fill in the blank would be "Thanks. I bought it at Marcy's." because it acknowledges John's compliment and provides information about where she purchased the dress from.

    • C.

      C. frightened

    • D.

      D. threatened

    Correct Answer
    D. D. threatened
    Explanation
    The correct answer is D. threatened. This answer is the most appropriate because it fits the context of the sentence. The sentence mentions that many species are now "with extinction," implying that they are in danger or at risk. The word "threatened" accurately describes this situation. The other options (disappointed, crowded, frightened) do not convey the same meaning and are not suitable in this context.

    • D.

      D. invents

    Correct Answer
    C. C. was invented
    Explanation
    The correct answer is C. was invented. This is because the sentence is in the past tense and is referring to a specific event in the past - the invention of the first safety razor. Therefore, the correct form of the verb "invent" to use in this context is "was invented."

    Correct Answer
    B. B. presented
    Explanation
    The word "presented" means to give someone a gift or award. In this context, the director gave the person who retired a gold watch as a gesture of appreciation or recognition for their service. Therefore, option B is the correct answer.

    • C.

      C. illogical

    • D.

      D. reckless

    Correct Answer
    D. D. reckless
    Explanation
    The correct answer is D. reckless. This is because the sentence states that "He was very cautious about committing himself to anything." If someone is cautious, it means they are careful and hesitant to take risks. Therefore, the opposite of cautious would be reckless, meaning someone who acts without thinking or taking precautions.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. biased
    Explanation
    The word "biased" means having a preference or prejudice for or against something or someone. In the context of the question, it is important for the jury to be objective and impartial, meaning they should not have any bias towards either side in a legal case. Therefore, the correct answer is C. biased, as the jury must not have any preconceived notions or favoritism towards any party involved.
