Read the following passage and answer the questions. 

    Freak waves are giant walls of water that happen in deep, stormy oceans. Sometimes they can reach up to 100 feet high, which is as high as a ten-story building. The waves are very dangerous and have been known to sink very large ships.

    For years, scientists thought that freak waves were only in stories. Sailors would tell stories of these huge, 100-foot killer waves, but many people did not believe them. That all changed one day when an oil rig was hit by a wave of an impossible size.

    It happened in the ocean near Norway. The Draupner oil rig was hit by a wave that was nearly 100 feet tall. The oil rig was measuring the height of all the waves when suddenly a huge wave rose up from the ocean and smashed it. That was one of the first pieces of evidence that the sailors might have been right. Freak waves only happen in very deep water so people have not had many chances to see them.

    Normal waves are predicted using a mathematical equation called the linear effect. This math equation says that a wave that big is possible once every ten thousand years. But these waves happen a lot more than that. In the waters off of South Africa, these waves happen a lot. Since 1990, twenty ships have been hit by waves that seemed too big to be real. These massive waves do exist and have proved a lot of scientists wrong. 

What is the main idea of the passage?

  • Freak waves
  • Ocean Tsunamis
  • Giant oil rigs and ships
  • The history of waves in the ocean

All scientists' predictions about the waves are wrong.

Before the Draupner oil rig was hit, people didn't believe in appearance of freak waves.

Freak wave can be as high as a building with 10 floors.

The linear effect is possible to predict freak waves.

Which of the following does NOT happen because of a freak wave?

  • Ships are hit and then sink.
  • Scientists are proved wrong.
  • Houses along the coast are destroyed.
  • Oil rigs and other floating machines are destroyed.

Read the text. Choose the correct word from the box to fill in each blank.

When friendships end

Most friendships slowly come to an end over time. People apart, move house or go to different schools, amongst other things. Other friendships, however, end very suddenly. Sometimes a friend might end your relationship without telling you why. When a friendship is over and you don’t know the reasons why, it can leave you feeling confused and down in the dumps.

When a friendship ends, try to work out why it has ended. Maybe it was your fault because you did things annoyed your friend. Perhaps your friend was held up with you being late all the time, or felt they couldn't rely you when they needed help. Maybe you didn't see eye to eye on important matters.

the reasons for the split, don’t disrespect your friend by gossiping or them a hard time. Your friend has the right to end your relationship, so the best thing to do is just let it go. You never know - there may come a time in the future when you and your friend make up, and you don’t want to say now when you might regret later.
