1.) Sample

Can we experiment conceived, carried out, and reported in kids-speak with pencil-colored figures and hand-written tables by school children aged 8 to 10 years get published in a highly rated international journal following peer-reviewing processes? Twenty-seven school children from a primary school in the UK have proved this is ……………………………………….. If a simple but novel scientific question raised is …………………………………..in a scientific way. Their paper was published in the Royal Society’s Biology Letters journal. Their ………………………………. was that bumble-bees can use a “combination of the color of flower to forage from.”

Considering that our understanding of how bees perceive colored patterns and scenes is inadequate, this inspiring outcome has shown that school children guided by gifted teachers can think and …………………………………… out experiments like any hard-wired scientist. For these kids, doing science changed their …………………………………. of the subject. Science also became “cook and fun.” This refreshing approach turns the spotlight on the best methods of teaching science.

The …………………………… learning system adopted by most schools in India, even classroom study combined with some laboratory work with pre-defined outcomes, does very little to ………………………………… curiosity and interest in science Is that one of the ……………………………… why out-of-the-box thinking that produces path-breaking science rarely comes out of Indian laboratories?

3.) Sample

If after years of Spanish classes, some people still find it impossible to understand some native speakers, they should not worry. This does not ………………………….. mean the lessons were wasted. Millions of Spanish speakers use neither standard Latin American Spanish nor Castilian, which predominate in US schools.

The confusion is partly political – the Spanish speaking world is very diverse. Spanish is the language of 19 separate countries and Puerto Rico. This means that there is no one standard dialect.

The most common Spanish dialect taught in the US is standard Latin American. It is sometimes called “Highland” Spanish since it is generally spoken in the …………………………………. areas of Latin America. While each country retains its own …………………………………………. and has some unique vocabulary, residents of countries such as Mexico, Colombia, Peru, and Bolivia generally speak Latin American Spanish, especially in urban centers. This dialect is noted for its …………………………………………….. of each letter and its strong “r” sounds. This Spanish was spoken in Spain in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and was brought to the Americas by the early colonists.

However, the Spanish of Madrid and of northern Spain, called Castillian, developed …………………………………….. that never reached the New World. These include the pronunciation of “ci” and “ce” as “th”. In Madrid, “gracias” (thank you) becomes “gathers” (as opposed to “grass-see-as” in Latin America). Another difference is the use of the word “vosotros” (you all, or you guys) as the informal form of “ustedes” in Spain.

A) necessarily

usually

only

particularly

B) rocky

hidden

mountainous

coastal

C) thoughts

accents

infections

authority

D) pronunciation

collection

remembering

elucidation

E) problems

characteristics

formalities

distinguishes


4.) Sample

Called Chomolungma (“goddess mother of the world”) in Tibet and Sagarmatha (“goddess of the sky”) in Nepal, Mount Everest once went by the pedestrian name of Peak XV among Westerners. That was before ……………………………………………… established that it was the highest mountain on Earth, a fact that came as something of a surprise – Peak XV had seemed lost in the crowd of other formidable Himalayan peaks, many of which gave the ……………………………………………. of greater height.

In 1852 the Great Trigonometrical Survey of India measured Everest’s elevation as 29,002 feet above sea level. This figure remained the officially …………………………………. height for more than one hundred years. In 1955 it was adjusted by a mere 26 feet to 29,028 (8,848 m).

The mountain received its official name in 1865 in honor of Sir George Everest, the British Surveyor General from 1830-1843 who had some ………………………………….. about having his name bestowed on the peak, arguing that the mountain should retain its local appellation, the standard policy of geographical societies.

Before the Survey of India, a number of other mountains ranked supreme in the eyes of the world. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the Andean peak Chimborazo was considered the highest. At a relatively unremarkable 20,561 feet (6,310 m), it is in fact nowhere near the highest ……………………………………….. by about thirty other Andean peaks and several dozen in the Himalayas. In 1809, the Himalayan peak Dhaulagiri (26,810 ft; 8,172m) was declared the ultimate, only to be shunted aside in 1840 by Kanchenjunga (28,208 ft; 8,598 m), which today ranks third. Everest’s status has been unrivaled for the last century and a half, but not without a few threats.
