Millions of homes could have their food waste bins weekly, if new proposals from the environment secretary are implemented in the wake of a government consultation on the UK’s waste system.

Michael Gove’s proposed measures to ensure consistent recycling collections come after a number of councils cut the of collections, leaving residents with overflowing bins.

Free garden waste collections for households may also be introduced while councils in England will be to provide weekly pickups of food waste. The policy area is devolved to national government level.

“We are committed to going further and faster to reduce, reuse, recycle and cut waste,” Gove said. “, we are leading the way to move away from being a ‘throwaway’ society and drive up domestic recycling. We are committed to cementing our place as a world leader in resource efficiency, so we can be the first generation to leave our environment in a better state than we inherited it.”

The consultation will also look at bringing in a deposit return scheme for cans and bottles. The scheme could drive up the recycling of the estimated 3 billion plastic bottles are currently incinerated, sent to landfill or discarded on streets.

Read the passage and answer the questions.

Sigmund Freud was a well-known psychologist who was born in Austria in 1856. He is famous because he came up with psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis is a certain way of helping a patient with a troubled mind. Freud believed that people have many thoughts and ideas deep inside, but they are taught to ignore them over time.

Psychoanalysts help people by searching for their secret ideas. They will ask the patient many questions about their dreams, desires, and childhood. Then they will try to find out what all of this means.

Freud believed that a person's personality was not caused by genetics, but was formed by things that happened to the person as a child. For example, if a grown woman is very shy, Freud would say that something happened when she was a child that made her that way. He believed that the way parents and siblings treated a child affected them as adults.

According to Freud, each person's mind has three parts: the id, ego, and superego. The id is the part of the mind that only wants pleasure and cannot think about bad consequences. The superego is a person's sense of doing what they are supposed to do. The ego is the part of the mind that balances the id and the superego. Freud believed that if these parts of the mind were explored, a person could be cured of their psychological sickness.

What would be the most suitable title for the passage?

  • Id, Ego, and Superego

Read the passage and answer the questions.

There are a number of natural disasters that can strike across the globe. Two that are frequently linked to one another are earthquakes and tsunamis. Both of them can cause a great amount of devastation when they hit. However, tsunamis are the direct result of earthquakes and cannot happen without them.

The Earth has three main parts. They are the crust, the mantle, and the core. The crust is the outer layer of the Earth. It is not a single piece of land. Instead, it is comprised of a number of plates. There are a few enormous plates and many smaller ones. These plates essentially rest upon the mantle, which is fluid. As a result, the plates are in constant - yet slow - motion. The plates may move away from or toward other plates. In some cases, they collide violently with the plates adjoining them. The movement of the plates causes tension in the rock. Over a long time, this tension may build up. When it is released, an earthquake happens.

Tens of thousands of earthquakes happen every year. The vast majority are so small that only scientific instruments can perceive them. Others are powerful enough that people can feel them, yet they cause little harm or damage. More powerful earthquakes, however, can cause buildings, bridges and other structures to collapse. They may additionally injure and kill thousands of people and might even cause the land to change its appearance. 

Since most of the Earth's surface is water, numerous earthquakes happen beneath the planet's oceans. Underwater earthquakes cause the seafloor to move. This results in the displacement of water in the ocean. When this occurs, a tsunami may form. This is a wave that forms on the surface and moves in all directions from the place where the earthquake happened. A tsunami moves extremely quickly and can travel thousands of kilometers. As it approaches land, the water near the coast gets sucked out to sea. This causes the tsunami to increase in height. Minutes later, the tsunami arrives. A large tsunami - one more than ten meters in height - can travel far inland. As it does that, it can flood the land, destroy human settlements, and kill large numbers of people. 

What is the passage mainly about?

  • How earthquakes and tsunamis occur
  • What kind of damage natural disasters can cause
  • Why tsunamis are deadlier than earthquakes
  • When earthquakes are the most likely to happen

Which of the following statements does paragraph 1 support?

  • The most severe type of natural disaster is an earthquake.
  • Earthquakes cause more destruction than tsunamis.
  • A tsunami happens at the same time with an earthquake.
  • Earthquakes frequently take place after tsunamis do.

In paragraph 2, the word "It" refers to _______.

  • The mantle

  • The crust
  • The Earth

In paragraph 2, the word "adjoining" is closest in meaning to _______.

  • moving

Which of the following is true regarding the crust?

  • It is the smallest of the Earth's three layers.
  • The mantle beneath it keeps it from moving too much.
  • It is thicker on land than it is under the water.
  • There are many separate pieces that make it up.

In paragraph 3, the word "perceive" is closest in meaning to _______.

  • comprehend
  • detect
  • understand
  • prevent

  • They can be deadly to people standing near shore.
  • They are able to move as fast as the speed of sound.
