It is true that keeping fit will benefit a person’s health in many ways. It has become clear in recent years, that a large number of people are doing less and less exercise and this is now causing many serious diseases, putting a strain on doctors and hospitals. However, some experts believe that too much exercise can do just as much .

Although it is true that moderate exercise such as walking can be very beneficial to a person’s health, it is not the only one-factor keeps us healthy. Diet is also extremely important and I would argue that it is probably even more important than exercise, although the ideal is for both of these factors to work together, it seems to me that many people are unwilling to put in the effort required to become fitter. , too much exercise can also cause problems. So people are urged to take moderate exercise and eat moderately healthy rather than embarking on extreme diets and training. In too many instances, ultra-fit people have had heart attacks or dropped down dead.

In all, governments need to find ways of people to take responsibility for their own health. People need to realize that eating healthy food does not have to cost a , nor is it difficult to prepare healthy meals themselves. People need to be better educated about their health.

Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the following questions.

The sea has always interested people. From it, they can get food, minerals, and treasures. For thousands of years, they sailed on the sea. But they could not go far beneath its surface. People want to explore deep into the sea. However, they are not fishes. Because people must breathe air, they cannot stay under the water’s surface for any length of time. To explore deep water, men and women face even more dangers and problems. A diver who wants to stay underwater for more than a few minutes must breathe air or a special mixture of gases. Divers can wear diving suits and have air pumped to them from above. They can carry tanks of air on their back and breathe through a hose and a mouthpiece. Water weighs 800 times as much as air. Tons of water push against a diver deep in the sea. The diver’s body is under great pressure. When divers are under great pressure, their blood takes in some of the gases they breathe. As they rise too quickly, the gases in their blood form bubbles. Divers then suffer from the bends. The bends can cause divers to double up in pain. Bends can even kill divers.

  • the problems a diver faces in deep sea.
  • special mixtures of gases in deep sea.
  • a kind of illness that man suffers in the sea.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

There are many theories about the beginning of drama in ancient Greece. The one most widely accepted today is based on the assumption that drama evolved from ritual. The argument for this view goes as follows. In the beginning, human beings viewed the natural forces of the world, even the seasonal changes, as unpredictable, and they sought, through various means, to control these unknown and feared powers. Those measures which appeared to bring the desired results were then retained and repeated until they hardened into fixed rituals. Eventually stories arose which explained or veiled the mysteries of the rites. As time passed some rituals were abandoned, but the stories, later called myths, persisted and provided material for art and drama.

Those who believe that drama evolved out of ritual also argue that those rites contained the seed of theater because music, dance, masks, and costumes were almost always used. Furthermore, a suitable site had to be provided for performances, and when the entire community did not participate, a clear division was usually made between the "acting area" and the "auditorium." In addition, there were performers, and, since considerable importance was attached to avoiding mistakes in the enactment of rites, religious leaders usually assumed that task. Wearing mask and costumes, they often impersonated other people, animals, or supernatural beings, and mimed the desired effect ― success in hunt or battle, the coming rain, the revival of the Sun ― as an actor might. Eventually such dramatic representations were separated from religious activities.

Another theory traces the theater's origin from the human interest in storytelling. According to this view, tales (about the hunt, war, or other feats) are gradually elaborated, at first through the use of impersonation, action, and dialogue by a narrator and then through the assumption of each of the roles by a different person. A closely related theory traces theater to those dances that are primarily rhythmical and gymnastic or that are imitations of animal movements and sounds.
