Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
In a far off land that neither you nor I will ever travel to, something strange happened. It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining, the trees were green and butterflies flitted from flower to flower. However, there was no one there to see this splendid scene as no one had yet arrived.
The day described was not unusual in this place. In fact, every day had gone on like this since the beginning of time. It could almost be thought of as a boring day if someone had actually been there to consider the monotony of the beauty. The sky was always bright blue and cloudless until the early evening and then little white, candyfloss like clouds would appear over the sea and drift towards land where they settled for the night. By morning, they would be gone. However, on this day there was something in the sky. It was not a cloud or the sun. It was a dot.
If someone had been there watching, they may not have initially noticed the dot. They would probably have gone about their daily routine and not seen it. At least in the morning! But, by noon, the dot had grown larger. It continued to grow, larger and larger over the next few hours until suddenly, ‘pufit’. The noise was unremarkable, but no one was there to hear it anyway.
Something had landed on the grass in a clearing. The grass around it was not altered in any way. It was not charred or smoldered. Everything was exactly how it had been a moment before, except now there was no dot in the sky and there was a large rock on the grass. It stood firmly embedded in the soil and was about two metres high and dark in colour. Its surface almost shone as it reflected the sun’s rays. If there had been someone to look at it, they would have said that it was a wonder, like no other stone they had ever seen before. They would also have said it was mysterious. No plants would ever try to grow on it and it would never be damaged, but the people who were not there would never know this.

What is strange about the land?

AThe weather was nice.
BIt’s uninhabited.
CHumans cannot go there.
DThere were butterflies.

Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
There is nothing we can really do about the weather. But, over the last few centuries we have developed techniques that help us to predict it. Weather forecasting is the application of science and technology telling us what the conditions will be like in the atmosphere for a given location and time. Human beings have actually been trying to predict the weather for millennia and what’s interesting about this is that our ancestors used techniques similar to ours, but in a primitive way. They looked for patterns in atmospheric changes. However, in the 19th century, we began to develop instruments, to more accurately help our understanding of the changes.
Weather forecasts are made by collecting data about the current state of the atmosphere at a given place and using our understanding of what happens in the atmosphere to predict how it will change. In the early days of modern forecasting, we relied on detecting changes in atmospheric pressure, current weather conditions and sky condition. Then people would do a lot of work and calculations to try and figure out how it might change. They were often wrong too. However, now we have the help of computers that use models taking even more information about the atmosphere into account. Even with the help of new technologies, we can still make mistakes as the atmosphere is very complicated.
This means that forecasts become less accurate for days further into the future. They are most accurate for days ahead rather than weeks. Even if we developed a perfect model of the atmosphere and had all data about it, that was 100% accurate, the computer processing time would be very long and the weather would have happened before the computer finished its calculations.
Humans are generally curious beings and I ask, why do we want to predict the weather anyway? One important use is, so that we can know if there is any hazardous weather on our way and can issue weather warnings. These can protect life and property. Forecasts based on temperature and rain levels are important for agriculture. For average people, like you and me, weather forecasts can help us decide what clothes we might need to wear, or if we might need a rain coat in the afternoon. It can also be a good idea to check the weather before you decide to go on a hike or play sports. Some people don’t mind walking in the rain, but some of us, like me, would prefer not to be caught in it.

Which of the following statements is true?

AComputerised models always calculate the data about the atmosphere accurately.
BEven with the most accurate data and the newest technologies, mistakes are inevitable.
CAtmosphere isn’t very complicated; it is easy to figure out how it might change.
DDetecting changes in atmospheric pressure requires little data.
