Read the passage and answer the question that follow.

(1) Global warming is all over the news from morning to evening and most of it is about how little is actually being done. The most frequently blamed and maligned source is carbon fuels. In light of the fact that the majority of the world is almost entirely dependent on fossil fuels for their electricity has made the scientific community uncomfortable and with little coming back from them on how to solve the apparent crisis we may need to go back to the ideas of the 1970s or just keep ourselves calm with recent fake news about the Earth's actual rate of temperature change.
(2) Some researchers have proposed global-scale geoengineering projects to cool the planet and, by extension, preserve or restore ice. Others argue that it might be possible to chill just the north, for instance by artificially whitening the Arctic Ocean with light-coloured floating particles to reflect sunlight. A study recently suggested installing wind-powered pumps to bring water to the surface in winter, where it would freeze, forming thicker ice. But many researchers hesitate to embrace geoengineering. And most agree that regional efforts would take tremendous effort and have limited benefits, given that Earth's circulation systems could just bring more heat to north to compensate.
(3) Alternatively and in spite of multiple lines of converging scientific evidence show conclusively that our climate is warming, stories sometimes appear in the media calling that into question. New studies are interpreted as contradicting previous research, or data are viewed to be in conflict with established scientific thinking. The article discussed a short-term cooling period that showed up in the data in 2017 and 2018 and correctly stated that short-term cooling cycles are statistical noise compared to the long-term trend.
(4) In short, it is clear that try as they may, the scientific community are not in complete agreement about the earth warming or about how to stop it or even possibly reduce it. Cooling the earth is a real yet exorbitant issue that most countries are unable to afford and without whole world involvement it will never work. The need of attacking the problem at both ends is then an absolute and yet it will be some time until we can all agree to do the right things.

READ THE PASSAGE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT FOLLOW.

We all make spontaneous hand movements, called gestures, when we talk. These cospeech gestures are produced in rhythm with our speech and are related to the meaning of what we are saying. For example, when talking about attending a piano recital, you might move your fingers right and left in front of you to illustrate what playing a piano looks like.

There are several different types of gestures that serve different purposes. Some gestures describe objects or actions, like the piano example above. These are called iconic gestures, because they create a picture. Sometimes our gestures do not make pictures, but they move in rhythm with our speech. These are called beat gestures, because they follow the beat of our speech. For example, you might flick both wrists downward when saying the word amazing in the following sentence: "The recital was amazing." These gestures can help the speaker emphasise certain words.

Hand gestures are not just hand waving. Gestures can also enhance learning in children who view and make them. Children's gestures reveal when they are on the cusp of understanding a new concept. An important unanswered question that scientists are still trying to figure out is how? How do gestures help learning? Even though we do not yet have an answer to this, scientists have some ideas. One possibility is that gestures offer a visual way to communicate ideas that can complement what children hear or say with spoken language. Instead of just hearing something in speech, children get to see it as well.

Another possibility is that gestures help children focus their attention on the most important points of what is being learned, at exactly the right time. Gestures increase the chance that the children will know exactly which part of the equation the teacher is talking about. Finally, it is also possible that gestures help memory by engaging more parts of the brain. Gesturing engages the motor parts of the brain in addition to the parts of the brain already active for producing language. Engagement of multiple brain areas may lead to better, deeper learning.

Gestures come along for free with our speech and can play a critical role in helping children learn. By continuing to study gestures, we will better understand how we can help children learn.

READ THE PASSAGE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT FOLLOW.


(1) If you think about sharks, the first image that comes to mind might be that of a meat-eating menace of the sea. However, while the bonnethead enjoys meat as much as any other shark, it seems to love its greens as well, so much so that about 50 percent of the shark's diet is plant-based.
(2) A Ph.D. candidate at the University of California, became interested in the sharks' eating habits in 2017 after hearing reports of the fish chomping down on seagrass, the flowering marine plant that covers ocean floors in some coastal waters.
(3) The shovel-shaped bonnetheads, which average between one to one and a half meters in length and weigh up to 12 kilos are the second smallest sharks in the hammerhead family. They can be found in estuaries and shallow bays, with mud or sand bottoms. Prior to the latest discovery, researchers believed the fish, among the few shark species not on the endangered list, primarily ate crustaceans, clams, octopuses, and small fish.
(4) Although this species of shark is one of the few that are not endangered, this recent finding will allow the protection of their environment better. Now it is understood that they not only live in but eat the grass, conservationists will be able to make sure that this species continues to thrive.
