Read the following passage.
Sigmund Freud was a well-known psychologist who was born in Austria in 1856. He is famous because he came up with psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis is a certain way of helping a patient with a troubled mind. Freud believed that people have many thoughts and ideas deep inside, but they are taught to ignore them over time.
Psychoanalysts help people by searching for their secret ideas. They will ask the patient many questions about their dreams, desires, and childhood. Then they will try to find out what all of this means.
Freud believed that a person's personality was not caused by genetics, but was formed by things that happened to the person as a child. For example, if a grown woman is very shy, Freud would say that something happened when she was a child that made her that way. He believed that the way parents and siblings treated a child affected them as adults.
According to Freud, each person's mind has three parts: the id, ego, and superego. The id is the part of the mind that only wants pleasure and cannot think about bad consequences. The superego is a person's sense of doing what they are supposed to do. The ego is the part of the mind that balances the id and the superego. Freud believed that if these parts of the mind were explored, a person could be cured of their psychological sickness.

Read the following passage and answer the questions.
There are a number of natural disasters that can strike across the globe. Two that are frequently linked to one another are earthquakes and tsunamis. Both of them can cause a great amount of devastation when they hit. However, tsunamis are the direct result of earthquakes and cannot happen without them.
The Earth has three main parts. They are the crust, the mantle, and the core. The crust is the outer layer of the Earth. It is not a single piece of land. Instead, it is comprised of a number of plates. There are a few enormous plates and many smaller ones. These plates essentially rest upon the mantle, which is fluid. As a result, the plates are in constant - yet slow - motion. The plates may move away from or toward other plates. In some cases, they collide violently with the plates adjoining them. The movement of the plates causes tension in the rock. Over a long time, this tension may build up. When it is released, an earthquake happens.
Tens of thousands of earthquakes happen every year. The vast majority are so small that only scientific instruments can perceive them. Others are powerful enough that people can feel them, yet they cause little harm or damage. More powerful earthquakes, however, can cause buildings, bridges and other structures to collapse. They may additionally injure and kill thousands of people and might even cause the land to change its appearance.
Since most of the Earth's surface is water, numerous earthquakes happen be-neath the planet's oceans. Underwater earthquakes cause the seafloor to move. This results in the displacement of water in the ocean. When this occurs, a tsunami may form. This is a wave that forms on the surface and moves in all directions from the place where the earthquake happened. A tsunami moves extremely quickly and can travel thousands of kilometers. As it approaches land, the water near the coast gets sucked out to sea. This causes the tsunami to increase in height. Minutes later, the tsunami arrives. A large tsunami - one more than ten meters in height - can travel far inland. As it does that, it can flood the land, destroy human settlements, and kill large numbers of people.
