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

World Environment Day which is on 5th June every year in an important day in the calendar of the United Nations. It is one of the ways the United Nations uses to advocate for environmental and call for political action.

Every year, UNEP (the Environment Program of the United Nations) develops a theme which is used globally to raise and call for support from governments, organizations, and individuals from all over the world.

The theme for 2015 was "Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care". This would also serve as the slogan for the World Environment Day 2015. The meaning of this theme and slogan is that we have five with more than seven billion people combined. Although we have about 7 billion people, we just have one planet that we live and survive. The surface area is limited, shelter and food also limited. If we continue using the available natural as we do today, our future generations may be to go hungry and without homes. This is why it is of vital importance to consume food that is available with care. Stop the wastage and use whatever resource that is available according to need, not greed.

"Join the race to make the world a better place" is the theme and for 2016 UN World Environment Day. This slogan a clear message and asks everyone to get involved making the world a better place to live in.

For the questions 1-5, read the text and do the tasks that follow.

It is important to have healthy teeth. Good teeth help us to chew our food. They also help us to look nice. How does a tooth go bad? The decay begins in a little crack in the enamel covering of the tooth. This happens after germs and bits of food have collected there. Then the decay slowly spreads inside the tooth. Eventually, poison goes into the blood, and we may feel quite ill.

How can we keep our teeth healthy? Firstly, we ought to visit our dentist twice a year. He can fill the small holes in our teeth before they destroy the teeth. He can examine our teeth to check that they are growing in the right way. Unfortunately, many people wait until they have toothache before they see a dentist. Secondly, we should brush our teeth with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste at Ieast twice a day - once after breakfast and once before we go to bed. We can also use wooden toothpicks to clean between our teeth after a meal. Thirdly, we should eat food that is good for our teeth and our body: milk, cheese, fish, brown bread, potatoes, red rice, raw vegetables, and fresh fruit. Chocolates, sweets, biscuits, and cakes are bad, especially when we eat them between meals. They are harmful because they stick to our teeth and cause decay.

Healthy teeth only help us chew our food.

The decay spreads inside the tooth after it begins in a little crack in the enamel covering of the tooth.

We should have our teeth brushed at Ieast twice a day.

Dentists can help us keep our teeth healthy.

Some kinds of food are good for our teeth while others are harmful.

Read a review of the book The Martian. Choose from the list A-E the sentence which best summarises each part (1-5) of the article.

A. The answers are explained with lots of very convincing calculations.

B. But Mark does not die in the storm, and he has been left behind.

C. I would recommend this book to all audiences.

D. Without the character of Mark Watney, this book would only be a scientific look at survival on Mars.

E. This diary style makes the character of Watney very real.

The Martian: a book review

The Martian tells the story of Mark Watney, an astronaut on the Ares 3 mission to Mars. After a terrible storm almost destroys the ship and the base, the crew of his ship believe he is dead.

. Alone on the red planet, he has to survive until the next mission to Mars arrives. While this novel is fiction, in some ways it feels like non-fiction. It is very scientific and packed with details about survival on Mars. Watney is a botanist and engineer, and he begins to grow food and produce water in his artificial camp. How does he do this?

. The author is Andy Weir, and this is his first published book. In it he has created a realistic character. There is a lot of humour in the story, and the reader can identify with the emotions (although no one can really imagine what it's like to be on Mars). Watney admits at the beginning that he is in deep trouble, but he never gives up. . Instead, what The Martian gives us is a realistic look at an intelligent person alone on a planet and trying to survive. The majority of the plot takes place on Mars and is written in the form of Watney's journal entries. . Unfortunately, the other characters in the book (his fellow crew members, the scientists at NASA on Earth) do not get much development and so they often feel one-dimensional. I should also mention that the book is thrilling to read. You will be on edge of your seat until the very end. . It's good not only for space travel fans and scientists but for anyone who is looking for a unique and exciting story. The Martian was so popular that it was made into a film starring Matt Damon in 2015, but I recommend reading the book first.

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

Psychologists have debated a long time about whether a child's upbringing can give it the ability to do outstandingly well. Others, however, argue that the potential for great achievement can be developed. The truth lies somewhere between these two extremes.

It seems very obvious that being born with the right qualities from gifted parents will increase a child's ability to do well. However, this ability will be fully realized only with the right upbringing and opportunities. As one psychologist says, "To have a fast car, you need both a good engine and fuel." Scientists have recently assessed intelligence,  achievement, and ability in 50 sets of identical twins that were separated shortly after birth and brought up by different parents. They found that achievement: was based on intelligence, and later influenced by the child's environment. One case involving very intelligent twins was quoted. One of the twins received a normal upbringing, performed well. The other twin, however, was brought up by extremely supportive parents and given every possible opportunity to develop its abilities. That twin, though starting out with the same degree of intelligences as the other, performed even better. This case reflects the general principle of intelligence and ability. The more favorable the environment, the more a child's intelligence and ability are developed. However, there is no link between intelligence and the socioeconomic level of a child's family. In other words, it does not matter how poor or how rich a family is, as this does not affect intelligence. Gifted people cannot be created by supportive parents, but they can be developed by them. One professor of music said that outstanding musicians usually started two or three years earlier than ordinary performers, often because their parents had recognized their ability. These musicians then needed at least ten years' hard work and training in order to reach the level they were capable of attaining. People who want to have very gifted children are given, the following advice:

- Marry an intelligent person.

- Allow children to follow their own interests rather than the interests of the parents.

- Start a child's education early but avoid pushing the child too hard.

- Encourage children to play, for example, playing with musical instruments is essential for a child who wants to become an outstanding musician.
