In 2014 the islanders of the Isle of Head chose altogether to stop government interference on their small island. They decided to purchase the whole island as a consortium now known as 'The Isle of Head Organisation', or TIHO for short. They now, like many other islands off the west coast, can set their own standard of living using a village tribunal system. In fact, this was what they were after originally. This way of living is not unfamiliar, but what they have decided to do on their island is somewhat quirky.
Head currently has limited access to the mainland and as the population shrank as too did the number of visitors; consequently, there is no need for frequent ferries. Although, it's not unknown for there to be multiple sailings at the weekend which people like greatly for the ease of access. That combined with a journey time of just over 25 minutes on calm seas and sometimes over 1-hour per sailing on other days has meant that the service operates on a 'need to' basis and sails only once there are enough passengers waiting to make the crossing worthwhile.
The village has several highly skilled citizens which has proved useful as they have decided that they will, in the most part, be self-sufficient. Central to this philosophy is the principle that they will educate their own primary and secondary school pupils and that the three 20-year olds will study together communicating through the web with colleges and universities elsewhere. It has been raised as a potential issue and there is an inquiry ongoing to check that the education the islanders get is of a suitable standard.
How often does the ferry sail these days?

A When it needs to
B At least twice a day
C On a seasonal schedule
D At the weekends only


these questions are also too tough for 4th graders

For more than ten years, there has been agreements with countries such as Switzerland that have been keen to have "brain exchange" programmes with India. In the past it was assumed that both or all countries that have signed agreements for cooperation in education management and science and technology could benefit from sharing their brightest and best minds. In general, these programmes have led to increased development for diversifying cooperation in economic and other sectors as well.
Of late there has been a move toward the supply of funding for international travel and engagement for younger and younger people. There are obvious issues when asking minors under the age of 18 to study abroad. There have been discussions about the ethics and coordination of the possibility of transplanting; not just moving the student but also their entire support network. People have put a whole range of ideas forward as to why being educationally mobile should be an option and an almost equal amount of negative reasons for students to stay in their home countries.
One thing that is definite is that even though there seems to be largescale competition throughout the world for resources, jobs and security. There is no doubt that the last decade has shown that there is a strong correlation between a country's success and its educational or knowledge based ties. This relationship is clearly beneficial but the issues concerning the answers to a range of questions that are now just being asked about the permissibility of allowing "brain exchanges" earlier and earlier are yet to be answered fully.
How are the agreements about children studying abroad weighted?

A They are weighted equally for both sides.
B People think kids should stay at home.
C Researchers say everyone should be able to travel.
D They don't know enough yet.

Much before medical science discovered it Readers Digest came out with the prescription-Laughter is the Best Medicine. News papers and magazines which regularly run humour columns are, therefore, doing their bit to keep the readers in good health. Reading light articles, whether they be satirical, comic or just humorous, relieves the tedium of work-a-day world. Some pieces may even tickle one’s grey matter.

It is said that if you laugh for ten minutes you will be in a better position to put up with pain for two hours. According to US researchers, laughter is a good antidote to stress that tones up the system. Facial laugh muscles instruct the brain to ‘feel good’ regardless of how you feel.

According to a French doctor, laughter deepens breathing, improves blood circulation, speeds up the process of tissue healing and stabilises many body functions. In short, it acts as a power drug with no side effects. Researchers state that laughter stimulates production of a beta-endorphins, natural pain killers in the body and improves digestion. Those who laugh are less prone to digestive disorders and ulcers.

Some people in France have made it a career. You can hire a ‘jovialist’ who cracks jokes and laughs and promises to make you dissolve your worries in helpless laughter. A word of caution. Although laughing is a good exercise for toning up the facial muscles, laughing at others’ expense, particularly at their disabilities, is in bad taste and is to be avoided. Secondly, laughing with food in the mouth is dangerous as the food stuff can get into the wind pipe and may choke the digestive system.

Eating, any way, is a serious business to be trifled with by any jocular diversion. Laughter comes best when it is free of encumbrances, whether it is constricting food or the need to humour the boss.

How does laughter help digestive system?
It ______.

Astimulates production of natural pain killers in the body
Bflights people’s proneness to digestive disorders and ulcers
Cmay not choke the wind pipe
Dnone of these


Can't it also be answer choice "A." In the third paragraph it says "Researchers state that laughter stimulates production of a beta-endorphins, natural pain killers in the body and improves digestion," but it also says "Those who laugh are less prone to digestive disorders and ulcers," so can't it be both A or B?

Ans 1:

Class : Class 6
In the passage it says that laughter stimulates natural pain killers that help in digestion

the correct answer is most likely B, Doctor to nurse. Because "theater" could mean the operation theater. So, the conversation would look like this: Doctor : Have the theater (operation theater) ready at 7:00 a.m. Doctor : I’ll be here by 7:15 a.m. Doctor : Bring in the patient at 8:00 a.m.
