    One cold morning, a Bear named Ted woke up from the middle of his long winter sleep. He wandered outside his den and noticed that the lake had frozen over. “Good thing I’m not made of water,” he said, “or I’d turn to ice.” “But you are made of water,” said Hare, who was tumbling around in a snowbank beside him. “Over half your body is water.” “You must be fooling,” said Bear. He looked at his body. His arms didn’t look like water. His legs didn’t look like water. His paws didn’t look like water. “Think of all your blood,” said Hare. “Your blood’s made of water. In fact, all your parts are made of cells, and cells are made of water.” Now, based on what you've read above, answer the question.  Why does Bear have a hard time believing his body is made up of mostly water?

    Floods are second only to fire as the most common of all natural disasters. They occur almost everywhere in the world, resulting in widespread damage and even death. Consequently, scientists have long tried to perfect their ability to predict floods. So far, the best that scientists can do is to recognize the potential for flooding in certain conditions. There are a number of conditions, from deep snow on the ground to human error, that cause flooding. When deep snow melts it creates a large amount of water. Although deep snow alone rarely causes floods, when it occurs together with heavy rain and sudden warmer weather it can lead to serious flooding. If there is a fast snowmelt on top of frozen or very wet ground, flooding is more likely to occur than when the ground is not frozen. Frozen ground or ground that is very wet and already saturated with water cannot absorb the additional water created by the melting snow. Melting snow also contributes to high water levels in rivers and streams. Whenever rivers are already at their full capacity of water, heavy rains will result in the rivers overflowing and flooding the surrounding land.  Which of the following are considered the cause of floods in the passage? 
    • A. 

      Droughts

    • B. 

      Large lakes

    • C. 

      Melting snow

    • D. 

      Poorly built roads

    Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote a very famous story called Tarzan of the Apes. This story involves a shipwreck on the West coast of Africa. The passengers on the ship include a certain Lord and Lady Greystoke from England. Lord and Lady Greystoke are the only survivors of the shipwreck. Lord Greystoke builds a kind of shelter high up in the trees - a treehouse - for his pregnant wife and does his best to make them comfortable in their new jungle home. Lady Greystoke gives birth to a boy. They call the boy John. Unfortunately, she dies and leaves Lord Greystoke to take care of the baby on his own. Lord Greystoke is killed by an enormous ape that comes to investigate the strange house in the trees. The baby is left all alone. Fortunately, a female ape, whose baby has recently died, finds the human baby alone in the treehouse. Even though the baby is white and hairless, she feels a mother's love for it and begins to feed and take care of it. She becomes John's mother. John - who later takes the name Tarzan, never having known his real identity - grows strong and powerful living among the apes. He has the advantage of human intelligence and eventually grows up to be the leader of the apes and, eventually, lord of the jungle. Where was Tarzan during the shipwreck?
    • A. 

      He was in a treehouse.

    • C.
