Text 1 is for questions number 1-5.
Icebergs are mountains of freshwater ice floating in the ocean. They are huge chunks broken off from the great masses of land ice called glaciers.
Almost all of Greenland and Antarctica are covered by glaciers the year round. Glaciers also cover parts of Alaska. They are formed by layers of packed snow. Glacier may be thousands of meters thick. Their front ends, or tongues, reach down to the sea. At the coast the tips of the tongues break off, plunge into the oceans, and become icebergs. This process is called calving.
When calving occurs, a loud cracking noise fills the air. Sometimes a low rumbling can be heard for hours before the ice actually breaks away. People close enough can hear the hissing of air as it escapes from bubbles bursting in the ice along the break.
Glaciers calve all year round. Just as many icebergs break off in winter as in summer. But in winter their passageway to open the sea is often jammed with masses of frozen seawater. Icebergs pile up behind this jam of sea ice. In the spring, when the ice block is broken, a whole fleet of icebergs may sail out toward the open ocean.
Icebergs from the eastern coast of Greenland drift southward. They are carried by the Greenland Current, which then swings them northward around the tip of the island. Part of the way up the coast the icebergs are caught in the cold Labrador Current and carried southward toward Newfound-land
On the way, most of the icebergs become grounded among the many islands and bays along the Labrador coast. The others float on toward the open sea. Off Newfoundland they are caught by a warm current from the south called the Gulf Stream. Icebergs that do not ground and remain in the Labrador Current often enter the lanes used by ships crossing the Atlantic Ocean.
An iceberg starts to break up almost as soon as it is afloat. Cracks appear and become filled with water from ice that melts during the day. When this melted water freezes at night, it expands and widens the cracks. The ice is weakened, and pieces of iceberg break off and float away. The iceberg becomes smaller and smaller. Most icebergs melt completely within a few days of entering the Gulf Stream

My neighbour’s children love playing hide-and-seek as all children do, but no one expected that a game they played last week would be reported in the local newspaper.
One afternoon, they were playing in the street just outside the post office. Young Ian, who is only five years old found the perfect place to hide. His sister, Janet, had shut her eyes and was counting up to ten when Ian noticed that the small metal door of the letter-box had been left open. The postman had just taken all the letters out and had gone into the post office to see if there were any parcels. Ian climbed into the letter-box and pulled the door from the inside so hard that it locked. Soon realizing what he had done, he became very frightened and started crying. Meanwhile, Janet was looking for him everywhere but could not find him. It was lucky she happened to stop outside the letter-box and hear her brother’s cries. She immediately ran to tell the postman who hurried out to unlock the metal door. Ian was now free, but he had had such a bad fright that he could not stop crying.

Text 3 is for questions number 18-23
Divorce May Mean Happier Lives for the Children
Divorce changes childhood but not necessarily for the worse. Many children from broken homes go on establish loving relationships with both their parents.
It’s difficult for children to be party to any ongoing dispute between parents.
One child spoke of the “Bermuda Triangle” – the mythical space between the homes of her parents into which socks and schoolbooks, game kit and pencil sharpeners always seemed to disappear. Another child complain bitterly that one mother refuse to let her on the weekends she spent with her dad. They hated being told secrets and carrying messages to and from between their parents. Worrying about how kids will be affected by divorce often leads parents into crooked thinking.
What matters is overcoming and dealing with those difficulties. In life we are always going to face difficulties and that we should never have problems is not a good way at looking at childhood.
Rather than wringing their hands about the harmful effects of splitting up, parents can be positive and look at strategies for dealing with problems that might arise. As a proof, a lot of parents that we interviewed stayed together longer than they have done though they were so worried about the effect of divorce on their thinking that any kind of adolescent rebellion was because of the divorce.
What we are saying is that young people can strive under these circumstances and that it’s the quality of the relationship that matter. Divorce might be a whole lot better than a really grim family situation and children can often be extraordinarily happy and contented after their parents’ divorce

A tsunami is a series of waves generated when water in a lake or in the sea is rapidly displace on a massive scale. Eartquake, landslide, volcanic eruptions and large meteorite impacts all have the potential to generate a tsunami. The effacts of a tsunami can range from unnoticable to devastating.
The term tsunami comes from the Japanese language meaning harbour (‘tsu’) and wave (‘nami’). Although in Japanese tsunami is used for both the singgular and plural, in English tsunamis is well-establised as the plural. The term was created by fishermen who retuned to port to find the area surrounding the harbour devastated, although they had not been aware of any wave in the open water.

Articles of domestic use like buckets, cups, brushes, combs, cabinets for radios and transistors etc, are also being made from plastics.

Today scientists have even succeeded in developing heat insulating plastics. Foam cushions, seats in trains cars and aeroplanes – all are made from plastics.

The manufacture of plastic in commercial scale was started for the first one by Leo Hendrik Backeland. He made it form phenol formaldehyde.

How Planes Fly
a plane needs air pressure under their wings to stay up in the air as they move forward the higher air pressure underneath their wings pushes them upward and gives them lift
the smooth streamlined shape of the plane allows air to fly easily over its surface this helps to reduce the drag causes by the air pushing against the plane and allows it to move rapidly through the air
planes move forward using engines this movement is called thrust moving forward keeps a stream of moving air passing over the wings which allows the plan to stay up in the air if the engines fall the plane will begin to descend very quickly

kangaroo, the Australian Identity
The first kangaroos inAustralialived in the forest. They ate only insects and were about the size of large rats. They developed from type of possum that came down from the trees to search for food on the forest floor. Today the kangaroos are much bigger than the ancient kangaroos. The smallest kangaroos weigh 500 gram.
There are many types of small kangaroos in Australiaalthough most people only see and hear the big ones. A lot of the smaller kangaroos, such as burrowing and brush-tailed bettongs, are in danger of extinction. The sheep, cattle and rabbits eat their food and the tall grasses the use to shelter from predator like foxes and feral cats.
The kangaroos’ hop is very unusual. It is different from the jump of a large animal. If you try to hop up the street like a kangaroo, you will get tired quickly. A kangaroo can jump 65 km/h. It has hind legs that can store a lot of energy when it hops. Its stomach pumps air in and out of their lungs and saves their muscles a lot of work.
Kangaroos are marsupials. They rear their young in a pouch-like koalas and wombats. In a good condition the females of some kangaroos (for example, the red) are almost always pregnant. A day or two after the joey is born she mates again. A female kangaroo can produce different milk from different teats for the older and younger joeys.
