Read the text and choose the best answer to fill in the blanks.

Solar energy is a long-lasting source of energy, and it can almost anywhere. To generate solar energy, we only need solar cells and the ! Solar cells can easily be installed house roofs, so we don't need any new space. Compared to other sources, they also possess many advantages: wind and water power rely on turbines are noisy, expensive, and which take up large space. Solar cells are totally silent and non-polluting. As they have no moving parts, they require little maintenance and have a long lifetime.

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

The people of Kiribati are afraid that one day in the not-too-distant future, their country will disappear from the face of the earth - literally. Several times this year, the Pacific island nation has been flooded by a sudden high tide. These tides, which swept across the island and destroyed houses, came when there was neither wind nor rain. “This never happened before”, say the older citizens of Kiribati.

What is causing these mysterious high tides? The answer may well be global warming. When fuels like oil and coal are being burned, pollutants are released; these pollutants trap heat in the earth's atmosphere. Warmer temperatures cause water to expand and also create more water by melting glaciers and polar ice caps. 

If the trend continues, scientists say, many countries will suffer. Bangladesh, for example, might lose one-fifth of its land. The coral island nations of the Pacific, like Kiribati and the Marshall Islands, however, would have a worse result - they would disappear into the sea. The loss of these coral formations would be everyone's loss. Coral formations are home to more species than any other place on earth.

According to the passage, this year, the high tides came when _____.
  • there was rain with no wind
  • there was wind with no rain
  • there were wind and rain
  • there weren't rain and wind
The cause of the high tides maybe _____.
  • the sea
  • global warming
  • the sun
  • the loss of the coral island

According to the passage, burning fuels like oil and coal may NOT cause _____.

  • pollutants to release
  • heat to be trapped in the earth's atmosphere
  • glaciers and polar ice caps to be melt
  • acid rain to be formed
If global warming continues, Bangladesh _____.
  • might lose one-fifth of its land
  • might disappear into the sea
  • would have a worse result
  • might lose all of its land

The word "they" in the last paragraph refers to _____.

  • scientists
  • many countries
  • the coral island nations of the Pacific
  • Bangladesh
Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
  • Huge tides never happened in Kiribati before.
  • Warmer temperatures don’t cause water to expand.
  • Kiribati and the Marshall Islands are not coral island nations of the Pacific.
  • Coral formations aren’t home to any species.
