For many people who live in cities, parks are an integral part of the landscape. They provide a place for people to relax and play sports, as well as a refuge from the often harsh environment of a city. What people often overlook is that parks also provide considerable environmental benefits.
One benefit of parks is that plants absorb carbon dioxide - a key pollutant - and emit oxygen, which humans need to breathe. According to one study, an acre of trees can absorb the same amount of carbon dioxide that a typical car emits in 11,000 miles of driving. Parks also make cities cooler. Scientists have long noted what is called the Urban Heat Island Effect: building materials such as metal, concrete, and asphalt absorb much more of the sun's heat and release it much more quickly than organic surfaces like trees and grass. Because city landscapes contain so much of these building materials, cities are usually warmer than surrounding rural areas. Parks and other green spaces help to reduce the Urban Heat Island Effect.
Unfortunately, many cities cannot easily create more parks because most land is already being used for buildings, roads, parking lots, and other essential parts of the urban environment. However, cities could benefit from many of the positive effects of parks by encouraging citizens to create another type of green space: rooftop gardens. While most people would not think of starting a garden on their roof, human beings have been planting gardens on rooftops for thousands of years. Some rooftop gardens are very complex and require complicated engineering, but others are simple container gardens that anyone can create with the investment of a few hundred dollars and a few hours of work.
Rooftop gardens provide many of the same benefits as other urban parks and garden spaces, but without taking up the much-needed land. Like parks, rooftop gardens help to replace carbon dioxide in the air with nourishing oxygen. They also help to lessen the Urban Heat Island Effect, which can save people money. In the summer, rooftop gardens prevent buildings from absorbing heat from the sun, which can significantly reduce cooling bills. In the winter, gardens help hold in the heat that materials like brick and concrete radiate so quickly, leading to savings on heating bills. Rooftop vegetable and herb gardens can also provide fresh food for city dwellers, saving them money and making their diets healthier. Rooftop gardens are not only something everyone can enjoy, they are also a smart environmental investment.
According to the passage, when did human beings start planting gardens on rooftops?
  • a few hundreds years ago
  • thousands of years ago
  • a thousand year ago
  • All are correct
Using the information in paragraph 2 as a guide, it can be inferred that _____.
  • cities with rooftop gardens are cooler than those without
  • some plants are not suitable for growth in rooftop gardens

In paragraph 2, why are cities often warmer than surrounding rural areas?
  • There are a lot of building materials in cities.
  • There are many parks in cities.
  • There are not any trees and grass.
  • Urban Heat Island Effect can't be reduced by parks.
Based on information in paragraph 3, which of the following best describes the main difference between parks and rooftop gardens?
  • Parks are expensive to create while rooftop gardens are not.
  • Parks are public while rooftop gardens are private.
  • Parks absorb heat while rooftop gardens do not.

Because of the recent GROWTH in air travel, airports have become more than ever before symbols of international importance.

This, of course, means that overcrowded (RESIDENT) areas need to be avoided, so, (FORTUNATE) travelers often find that the airport they need to use might be situated at an/a (CONVENIENT) distance from the city.
