C) It adds more detail to the first sentence.
D) It offers an exception to the information given in the first sentence.

Question 4. 

Read the passage below and choose the best answer/option to the question asked below.
The Earth’s past climate--including temperature and elements in the atmosphere--has recently been studied by analysing ice samples from Greenland and Antarctica. The air bubbles in the ice have shown that, over the past 160,000 years, there has been a close correlation between changes in the planet’s temperature and level of natural greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane. A recent analysis from a well-known think tank for Greenland showed that at the end of the last glacial period (when the great ice sheets began to retreat to their present position), temperatures in southern part of Greenland rose from 5 to 7 degrees within a span 100 years. Air bubbles are not the only method of determining characteristics of the Earth’s ancient climate history. Analysis of dust layers from ancient volcanic activity is another such method; as is the study of ice cores, which interpret past solar activity that may have affected our climate.

This passage states that:

A) The planet’s atmosphere is being destroyed by runaway greenhouse gases.
B) Temperatures in Greenland have been unusually stable over the past 100 years.
C) There are two information’s that scientists can use to determine the characteristics of the Earth’s early climate.
D) Solar energy is the wave of the future.

For the purpose of insurance related works, before video cameras were widely used, home and business owners had to rely only on written reports and photos as a way to document their valuables.

B) They contradict one another.

B) The second sentence contradicts the statement made in the first sentence.
C) The second sentence which is a contradiction to the first one shows an exception to the first sentence.
D) The second sentence compares two kinds of speeches.

Question 7. 

Answer the question based on what is stated or implied in these passages.
French physicist Charles Fabry discovered ozone gas in the atmosphere in 1913. At room temperature, ozone is a colourless gas; it condenses to a dark blue liquid at -170 F. At temperatures above the boiling point of water, 212 F, it decomposes. Ozone is all around us. Occasionally After a thunderstorm, or around electrical equipment, ozone is often detected as a sharp odour. Ozone can be used as a strong oxidizing agent, a bleaching agent, and to sterilize drinking water. This gas is also highly reactive. For example, The insulation which is made of rubber around a car’s spark plug wires will need to be replaced eventually, due to the small amounts of ozone produced when electricity flows from the engine to the plug.

The meaning behind the passages imply that:

A) Ozone is the major result of pollution.
B) High ozone levels in the atmosphere will cause large numbers of people to buy new car batteries.
C) Ozone has no practical uses for man.
D) Ozone is a natural part of the Earth’s atmosphere.
