The world is currently experiencing a pandemic of an infectious disease called coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). COVID-19 is a disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people are infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience cold or flu-like symptoms and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people and those with underlying medical problems like heart disease, chronic respiratory disease, diabetes, and cancer are more likely to serious illness.  COVID-19 impacts the elderly and those with pec-existing health conditions most severely.

The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is well informed about the COVID-19 virus, what the disease causes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and people from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol-based rub frequently and not touching your face.

Read the passage carefully and choose the best option to answer the question.

How can scientists predict earthquakes? Earthquakes are not scattered anywhere but happen in certain areas. They happen in places where pieces of Earth's surface meet. For example, earthquakes often occur on the west-coast of North and South America, around the Mediterranean Sea, and along the Pacific coast of Asia.

Another way to predict earthquakes is to look for changes in the Earth's surface, like a sudden drop of the water level in the ground. Some people say animals can predict earthquakes. Before earthquakes people have seen chickens sitting in trees, fish jumping out of the water, snake leaving their holes, and other animals acting strangely.

After an earthquake happens, people can die from lack of food, water and medical supplies. The amount of destruction caused by an earthquake depends on where it happens, what time it happens, and how strong it is. It also depends on types of building, soil conditions and population. Of the 6000 earthquakes on Earth each year, only about fifteen cause great damage and many deaths.

The word "They" in the first paragraph refers to _____.

  • places
  • earthquakes
  • scientists
  • areas
What can help predict earthquakes?
  • soil conditions
  • water beneath the Earth's surface
  • drops of water

  • lack of water
  • lack of medical supplies
  • lack of knowledge

  • counts
  • relies
  • focuses
  • insists

  • how to predict earthquakes

  • changes in the earth's surface
  • the damage caused by earthquakes

Read and choose the correct answer for each question.

It used to be that people would drink coffee or tea in the morning to pick them up and get them going for the day. Then cola drinks hit the market. With lots of caffeine and sugar, these beverages soon became the pick-me-up of choice for many adults and teenagers. Now drink companies are putting out so-called "energy drinks". These beverages have the specific aim of giving tired consumers more energy.

One example of a popular energy drink is Red Bull. The company that puts out this beverage has stated in interviews that Red Bull is not a thirst quencher. Nor is it meant to be a fluid replacement drink for athletes. Instead, the beverage is meant to revitalize a tired consumer's body and mind. In order to do this, the makers of Red Bull, and other energy drinks, typically add vitamins and certain chemicals to their beverages. The added chemicals are like chemicals that the body naturally produces for energy. The vitamins, chemicals, caffeine, and sugar found in these beverages all seem like a sure bet to give a person energy.

Health professionals are not so sure, though. For one thing, there is not enough evidence to show that all of the vitamins added to energy drinks actually raise a person's energy level. Another problem is that there are so many things in the beverages. Nobody knows for sure how all of the ingredients in energy drinks work together.

Dr. Brent Bauer, one of the directors at the Mayo Clinic in the US, cautions people about believing all the claims energy drinks make. He says, "It is plausible if you put all these things together, you will get a good result." However, Dr. Bauer adds the mix of ingredients could also have a negative impact on the body. "We just don't know at this point," he says.
