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

Have you ever thought about inventing something? Did you worry that your idea was too strange or unrealistic? Well, maybe you should think again. Strange or unrealistic ideas never stopped Arthur Pedrick. Pedrick was a British inventor. Originally a government clerk, he spent his retirement in the 1960s and the 1970s developing new and unusual ideas. Some of these ideas contradicted basic physics, but that didn’t stop Pedrick. One of his strangest ideas was a plan to connect large tubes from the continent of Australia all the way to Antarctica, a distance of 10,000 km! These tubes would carry giant ice balls from Antarctica to Australia. This ice would then melt in the Australian desert, and the water would be used in irrigation. Another of Pedrick’s inventions was a radio-controlled golf ball. A golfer could change the speed and direction of the golf ball by small flaps, controlled by computer chips. Using radio waves, the golfer could also find lost golf balls. Arthur Pedrick had thousands of bizarre ideas for inventions, most of which were never built.

Though many of Pedrick’s inventions were never developed, a lot of other strange ideas were. In 1989, a company designed and sold a theft-prevention device for expensive cars. As part of this device, several tubes were attached to the bottom of a car. If someone tried to steal the car, super hot flames would come out of the tubes and burn the car thief. Some people who were not thieves, however, were seriously injured. They accidentally set off the device by walking past the car. Other strange inventions include underwear for dogs and pens with drinkable ink. The underwear keeps dogs from making a mess when they go out for a walk. Also, if you are ever thirsty during a test, a pen with drinkable ink would be very handy! If you have an idea that seems a little out in left field, don’t let that stop you from trying it. You’ll be in good company.

What is the main idea of the passage?
  • It is a waste of time inventing something strange.
  • Some devices can help reduce crime.
  • Inventing something is not a difficult thing to do.
  • There are no limits to creating something new.

According to the passage, how was Pedrick’s plan to bring water from Australia probably unrealistic?

  • Tubes are not strong enough.
  • Australia doesn’t need water.
  • The plan was too expensive.
  • Australia and Antarctica are too far away.
According to the passage, what is NOT true about Pedrick?
  • All of his inventions were based on physics.
  • He had ever worked as a secretary for the government.
  • He made a microchip that could control the golf ball.
  • He wanted to take iceberg from Antarctica to Australia.

Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each question.

Ever since humans have inhabited the earth, they have made use of various forms of communication. Generally, this expression of thoughts and feelings has been in the form of oral speech. When there is a language barrier, communication is accomplished through sign language in which motions stand for letters, words, and ideas. Tourists, the deaf, and the mute have had to resort to this form of expression. Many of these symbols of whole words are very picturesque and exact and can be used internationally, spelling, however, cannot.

Body language transmits ideas or thoughts by certain actions, either intentionally or unintentionally. A wink can be a way of flirting or implying that the party is only joking. A nod signifies approval while shaking the head shows a negative reaction.

Other forms of nonlinguistic language can be found in Braille (a system of raised dots read with the fingertips), signal flags, Morse code, and smoke signals. Road maps and picture signs also guide, warn, and instruct people. While verbalization is the most common form of language, other systems and techniques also express human thoughts and feelings.

What is the best title for the passage?

  • The Importance of Sign Language
  • Ways of Expressing Feelings
  • The Forms of Communication
  • Picturesque Symbols of Communication

  • promotes
  • blocks

What can be inferred from the passage?

  • Nonlinguistic language doesn't seem valuable to foreign tourists.
  • Morse code, signal flags and smoke are several forms of linguistic language.
  • Because other forms of communication exist, verbalization isn't the most popular one.
  • In Braille, letters are expressed as raised dots read by touching them with the fingers.
