    "Sir Isaac Newton was contemplating the universe in his garden one day in 1665 when he noticed an apple fall from a tree. Newton wondered to himself, "Why should the apple always fall to the ground? Why does it not go sideways or upwards but directly toward the Earth's center?" After much contemplation, Newton concluded that objects are pulled to the Earth through a force that he called gravity, which means heaviness in Latin. On July 5th, 1687 Newton formally expressed his law of universal gravitation in series of books called The Principia." Which title best expresses the main idea of this text?

    • A.

      Sir Isaac Newton: Life of a Scientist

    • B.

    • C.

      Gravity: The Meaning of the Word

    • D.

      Gravity: Sir Isaac Newton's Discovery

    Correct Answer
    D. Gravity: Sir Isaac Newton's Discovery
    Explanation
    The main idea of the text is the discovery of gravity by Sir Isaac Newton. The text describes how Newton observed an apple falling from a tree and questioned why objects always fall towards the ground. After contemplating this, Newton concluded that there is a force called gravity that pulls objects towards the Earth's center. This discovery was formally expressed in Newton's book called "The Principia." Therefore, the title "Gravity: Sir Isaac Newton's Discovery" best expresses the main idea of the text.

    "A few months before World War II started, Albert Einstein wrote to President Roosevelt. He warned Roosevelt that the Nazis were conducting atomic research and that it would be bad if they were to win the race to build an atom bomb. Einstein recommended that the U.S. become involved in uranium research. As a result of this letter, the U.S. joined the atomic race and poured billions of dollars into the field. The U.S. won the race and became the first country to build an atomic bomb. The bomb was then used in Japan, killing hundreds of thousands of civilians. In 1954, a year before his death, Einstein would refer to the moment that he signed the letter to President Roosevelt as the greatest mistake of his life."   Which title best expresses the main idea of this text?

    Read the following passage from President Obama's September 8, 2009 speech on education. What can be inferred from this passage? "We need every single one of you to develop your talents, skills, and intellect so you can help solve our most difficult problems. If you don't do that - if you quit on school - you're not just quitting on yourself, you're quitting on your country."

    • A.

      Obama is counting on American children to finish school.

    • B.

      Obama is telling American children to finish school.

    • D.

      American children are the future of the country.

    Correct Answer
    D. American children are the future of the country.
    Explanation
    From the passage, it can be inferred that American children are the future of the country. This can be deduced from Obama's statement that if they quit on school, they are not just quitting on themselves, but also on their country. This implies that their education and development are crucial for the future success and progress of the nation.

    Choose the correct option to complete the sentence Last week I ____ my children to the biggest zoo in town.

    • A.

      Brought

    • B.

      Took

    • C.

      Fetch

    • D.

      Got

    Correct Answer
    A. Brought
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "brought" because it implies that the speaker took their children to the zoo. "Took" could also work in this context, but "brought" is a more appropriate verb to use when referring to bringing someone or something to a specific location. "Fetch" and "got" do not accurately convey the action of physically taking someone to a place.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Choose the correct option to complete the sentence Can everybody listen carefully to my ___, please?

    • A.

      Instruct

    • B.

      Instructive

    • C.

      Instructions

    • D.

      Instructing

    Correct Answer
    C. Instructions
    Explanation
    The sentence is asking for a noun that fits into the blank and makes sense in the context of asking people to listen carefully. "Instructions" is the correct option because it is a noun that refers to a set of directions or guidance given to someone. Asking for "instructions" implies that the speaker wants everyone to pay attention to a specific set of directions or information that they are about to provide.

    • A.

      Friendless

    • B.

      Friendly

    • C.

      Friendliness

    • D.

      Friendship

    Correct Answer
    A. Friendless
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "friendless." This is because the sentence states that she is very sad, indicating a negative emotion. Being friendless means that she does not have any friends in this cold and strange place, which could be a reason for her sadness.

    Which of these is the correct option to fill in the blank? What is the ___ of your country? - 265,000,000 people

    • A.

      Populated

    • B.

      Popular

    • C.

      Population

    • D.

      Populate

    Correct Answer
    C. Population
    Explanation
    The word "population" is the correct option to fill in the blank because it is the noun form of the word that best fits the context of the question. The question is asking for the number of people in a country, which is referred to as the population. "Populated" is an adjective that describes an area with a population, "popular" means well-liked or widely favored, and "populate" is a verb that means to inhabit or fill with people.

      Impression

    • D.

      Continuation

    Correct Answer
    C. Impression
    Explanation
    The word "impression" is the correct answer because it fits logically in the sentence and makes sense in the context of discussing a movie. When asking someone for their "impression" of a movie, it is commonly understood to be referring to their opinion or overall evaluation of the film.

      Atmosphere

    • C.

      Matter

    • D.

      Temperature

    Correct Answer
    B. Atmosphere
    Explanation
    The word "atmosphere" fits best in the sentence because it refers to the overall mood or feeling in a particular place or situation. In this case, it suggests that the class has a friendly and welcoming environment. The other options (air, matter, and temperature) do not convey the same sense of social interaction and harmony.
