Questions and Answers
Hello! My name is Peter and this is my house.
My house is quite big. It has got two floors - a ground floor and a first floor. It has also got an attic and a basement.
On the ground floor there is the hall, the kitchen, a pantry, the living room, a big dining room and a toilet.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms, one bathroom and a big corridor. My bedroom is between my parents’ bedroom and the bathroom. My sister’s bedroom is in front of mine.
I love my bedroom, but I also like the attic. In the attic I keep some of my books and my old toys. I like to spend my time there because it is very spacious and there is a big sofa there where I sometimes take a nap.
In the basement is where we keep the washing machine, the drying machine and old stuff.
At the back of the house there is also the garage, where my parents park the family car, and a lovely garden, with many green spaces, flowers, two swings and a small swimming-pool.
I love my house! It’s very comfortable and cozy.
Q：Is Peter’s house big or small?
The main point of this passage is that...
Carbon tetrachloride is a colorless and inflammable liquid that can be produced by combining carbon disulfide and chlorine. This compound is widely used in industry today because of its effectiveness as a solvent as well as its use in the production of propellants.
Despite its widespread use in industry, carbon tetrachloride has been banned for home use. In the past, carbon tetrachloride was a common ingredient in cleaning compounds that were used throughout the home, but it was found to be dangerous: when heated, it changes into a poisonous gas that can cause severe illness and even death if it is inhaled. Because of this dangerous characteristic, the United States revoked permission for the home use of carbon tetrachloride in 1970. The United States has taken similar action with various other chemical compounds.
