Six tons of pure power whacks an ice floe floating in cold Arctic waters. The seal lying on top of the ice doesn't stand a chance. Knocked into the sea, the seal becomes a meal for one of the ocean's top predators–the huge orca, or killer whale.
Orcas hunt everything from fish to walruses, seals, sea lions, penguins, squid, sea turtles, sharks, and even other kinds of whales. Depending on the season and where they are, their diet varies - some orcas eat more fishes and squid than seals and penguins. But wherever they are in any of the world's oceans, average-sized orcas may eat about 500 pounds (227 kilograms) of food a day. Orcas have many hunting techniques, and bumping seals off ice is just one of them.
Often referred to as wolves of the sea, orcas live and hunt together in cooperative pods, or family groups, much like a pack of wolves. They work together as they hunt. Groups of orcas cooperate to herd fish into a compact area so that they're easier to eat. They will also slap their tails onto the water's surface, causing a wave to wash prey, such as penguins or sea lions, off ice floes and into the water. Sometimes, a pod of whales will join forces to surround a larger animal, such as a blue whale. They chase, bite, and wear it down until it becomes a meal.
Orcas' teeth, numbering about 45 and each measuring about 3 inches (7.6 centimetres) long, are shaped for ripping and tearing prey. Orcas do not chew their food. They can swallow small seals and sea lions whole. The prey easily slides down the orcas' throats. Bigger prey is eaten in chunks. Ocras' backs are black and their stomachs are white. Animals looking down on an orca from above, such as a seal on an ice floe, might not see it because the whale's dark back blends with the water below. On the other hand, the whale's white underside blends with the light streaming down into the sea from the surface, making it hard to be spotted from below. The colour pattern of orcas help them sneak up on their prey and attack them. With orcas camouflaged so well, those prey fish, penguins or seals are likely to miss the danger heading their way, as the killer whale once again proves it is the oceans' superbly designed hunter.
In order to catch penguins or sea lions, the orcas __________.

A use their unique calling sound
B slap the water with their tail to create a wave, which washes their prey into the water
C whack the ice so hard that the penguins/sea lions fall down from it
D cooperate with other whales and herd the penguins/sea lions

John used to brush his teeth once, just before bed. The dentist always bugged him to do it at least twice a day, but it was annoying to wake up and brush his teeth before he ate. He was hungry and just wanted to eat.
Then, his mother complained about his morning breath one day, "It smells like I have an evil dragon for a son!" She lamented. The embarrassment of having his mother say such a thing got him to brush his teeth in the morning. Now he was up to twice a day, but he still hated flossing.
Flossing hurt. It squeezed his fingers almost to death when he wrapped the floss around his fingertips. Then he had to slide it between his teeth, usually cutting up his gums to the point where he spit out blood. It was gross and uncomfortable, and the next day it ached.
Then he saw his friend using flossers with relative ease. Flossers didn't pinch your fingertips, because the floss was on a plastic holder. They went in easy and weren't nearly as bad. What's more, his friend told him, "You'll be scared of how much the floss stinks when you pull out old food your toothbrush misses. It's gross!"
Indeed it was. He smelled the floss that pulled old food out his back teeth, and it smelled like something rotten. To think he'd had that stuff in his mouth and didn't even know about it. That was nasty! Yet, he still didn't like gargling.
Once he got a little older, his older sister, who was in high school, explained to him, "No girl is ever going to come close to you if you don't gargle." He was only in the fifth grade, so he wasn't too worried about that yet, but he thought he might some day. So, he tried gargling with mouthwash, and while he didn't like the flavour much, he did like how cool and fresh his mouth felt afterward.
And you know what? His dentist visits were having fewer problems too. He stopped getting cavities, which meant less painful drilling, and the dentist was always telling him he was doing a good job with his mouth. He was proud of his smile!
What did John discover after he started using flossers?

A Flossers went easily in his mouth and in between his teeth without hurting much.
B After cleaning his mouth the Flosser smelled like something rotten.
C He no longer had dragon breath.
D Only A and B
