Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
Tropical storms are huge areas of weather disturbances that develop in the oceans of the world. They gather heat and energy from the warm ocean water, or currents, and can grow to sizes of up to 600 miles across and generate swirling winds with speeds of 75 to 200 miles per hour! Although all large tropical storms are more or less the same, they are called by different names depending on their location. In the Atlantic and the Northeast Pacific oceans (for example, near the United States), they are called "hurricanes".
However, for the same type of disturbance in the Northwest Pacific Ocean (for example, near Japan, which is regularly hit by them every year), the term "typhoon" is used, while those that occur in the South Pacific and Indian Ocean are known as "cyclones". In order to be classified as one of these, a tropical storm must have wind speeds of 74 miles per hour. Big tropical storms are actually given names which are chosen from a list that is created every year. In the United States, for example, the first hurricane name starts with the letter 'A', like Alexander, and the names move through the alphabet as more hurricanes appear.
Tropical storm clouds move in a circle around a point called the eye, which is the centre of the storm. When a large tropical storm comes ashore, it brings with it heavy rains and powerful winds that can damage, or even destroy, buildings, cars and trees. However, the most devastating element of a large tropical storm is the storm surge. These are large waves that are generated by the storm and can cause massive flooding and are the main reason people in coastal cities are ordered to evacuate and move to higher ground when a large storm approaches. Scientists who study the weather are called meteorologists and they monitor these storms carefully so that they can determine their speed and where they are heading. In the United States, hurricane season begins on 1 June and lasts until 30 November. In terms of frequency and damage caused, 2005 was a record year for hurricanes.

What does a tropical storm revolve around?

AThe wind point
BThe eye
CThe surge
DThe sea

read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
Once upon a time there was a little white hen. She lived in a little blue house, and she had a little green garden. Every day she worked in the house and garden. Near her home lived a family of foxes. One day mamma fox said to papa fox, "I want a fat hen to eat." There was nothing in the pantry for the baby foxes, so papa fox started out to find something for them all.
He ran down the road until he came to the woods. "Surely I will find something here," he said, but he found nothing to eat in the woods. As he came near the little green garden he said, "Oh, I smell fresh cake. Oh, I smell a little white hen."
Sure enough, there was the little white hen eating her cake. Papa fox snuck up quietly behind her and grabbed her and put her into the bag on his back; then he ran quickly off down the hill toward his home. The little white hen was so frightened that she could only whisper, "Oh, dear. Oh, dear. Oh, dear."
Just then she had to sneeze, and when she put her claw into her pocket for her handkerchief, she felt her little scissors. Quick as a flash she took them out and cut a little hole in the bag. Peeping out she saw a great hill just ahead, all covered with stones. As papa fox stopped to rest on his way up the hill, with his back turned toward her, she cut a big hole in the bag, jumped out and quickly put a big stone in the bag in her place. As papa fox kept on up the hill, he thought the bag was pretty heavy, but he said, "Never mind, she is a fat little white hen."
Mamma fox met him at the front door with all the baby foxes. "The water is boiling," said she. "What have you in your bag?" asked the baby foxes. "A fat, little, white hen," said Papa Fox.
As he held the bag over the pot, he said to mamma fox, "When I drop her in, you clap on the lid." So he opened the bag. Splash! went the boiling water. It spilled all over papa fox and mamma fox and the baby foxes. Never again did they try to catch the little white hen.
