Read the passage and choose the suitable word to fill in the blanks.

Babies start laughing very soon after they are born. Deaf and blind people can laugh although they have never heard or seen anyone laughing. Laughing seems to be a part of nature, but what is it for?

Many people think that we laugh because we see or hear something funny; , most of the time this is not true. No one really knows the why we laugh, but one idea is that it makes people feel good. Laughter can stop negative feelings and help people to feel closer to each other.

It also seems that laughter is good for your health. The writer Norman Cousins, had a serious back pain, wrote that watching comedy programmes on TV helped him to feel better. He said that ten minutes of laughter gave him two hours of sleep without pain.

(Adapted from English Unlimited by Tilbury, Clementson, Hendra and Rea)

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

Most people want to be polite and behave well around others. Being polite involves good manners of eating and appropriate ways of greeting and talking to people, and giving and receiving gifts. Polite behaviours may differ from culture to culture.

In the United States, people prefer to shake hands firmly for a few seconds. In some Middle Eastern countries, people hold each other's hands gently for a longer time. What about eye contact? In some countries, you show respect when you look at someone directly in the eyes. In other parts of the world, looking at someone directly can be rude. Another difference is personal space. In North America, people usually stand about an arm's length apart during a conversation. However, in Latin America, people seem to stand closer.

If you are going to live, work, or study in another country, you should learn about its culture. In this way, you can be polite and make a good impression. Politeness can be good for making friends and doing business as well.

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

Hawaii is often considered to be one place in the world where you can find paradise. But when I arrived in Hawaii, I was shocked to discover beaches were covered in plastic rubbish washed up from around the world. As I dug through the sand, I realized the sandy beach was being transformed into a plastic beach. A chill went down my spine.

From the beaches of Hawaii to the seas around Britain, we are polluting our own environment. Beaches are now covered in more rubbish than ever before. The plastic we see on our beaches is just a small amount of the plastic waste that exists in our oceans. Scientists believe that sea currents have created five huge garbage areas in our oceans, including the one in the North Atlantic. This is a global problem for which we are all responsible.

Plastic makes our life easier, but its production and use are completely out of control. Because plastic rubbish in the oceans looks like food, it is being eaten by small fish, which in turn is eaten by large fish, which in turn is eaten by us. Plastic is damaging our beaches, polluting the oceans, and poisoning our food chain. The consequences are still not fully understood, but they are likely to be terrible.

We need to stop using plastic bags for packaging and single-use water bottles. These make up most of the plastic garbage in the oceans. In Bangladesh and Kenya, they have stopped using plastic bags completely. The UK has put a tax on plastic bags. Many supermarkets around the world are not packing goods in plastic.

The future of our beaches, our seas, and the food chain is at risk. This is an environmental problem that we need to solve immediately.
