The following text is for question 3 to 7 !


The sun is a star. It appears to be bigger than any other stars. That is because it is near to us; but other stars are far away.

The sun shines because it is very hot; but the moon shines because it reflects the sun’s light. It is like a big mirror. If we visited the moon, we would see the earth. It is also like a mirror and it reflects the light of the sun.

Sometimes the earth moves between the sun and the moon. Then the earth’s shadow falls on the moon; no light from the sun can then reach the moon.

The moon gets dark because it can not reflect the sun’s light. We call this an eclipse of the moon.

Does the sun ever get dark during the day? It does so when the moon hides it. Sometimes the moon goes in front of the sun.

We can watch its edge when it slowly crosses the sun’s disc. Everything gets darker and darker; then, eventually, we can not see any part of the sun’s disc.

The moon is hiding it completely. That is a total eclipse of the sun. Sometimes only part of the sun’s disc is hidden; that is a total eclipse. It is a partial eclipse of the sun.

The following text is for question 8 to 9 !

The use of formalin and other dangerous preservatives in foods has been a serious problem for three reason.

Firstly, formalin is not for human beings, but it is for biological specimen and experiments. Formalin in Biology is a 10 % solution of formaldehyde in water which is usually used as a disinfectant or to preserve biological specimens.

Thus it is not food preservative. Of course when it is used for food preservative, it will be very dangerous to human’s body. The second reason is that there is no tight control from the government. This condition makes the people’s health is really in a threat.

Fish or food traders still sell their products which contain formalin and dangerous preservatives. Can you imagine that our digestive system absorbs the substance that should be for the human and animal corpses ?

The third is that the difficult economy seems not to end. This can make the situation worse. We all know that today’s economy is very difficult.

People buy daily products and fulfill their need with high costs. Things are getting more and more expensive. Consequently, the food production cost increases.

For example, the preservation process for fish will be much cheaper if the producers use formalin. They know the danger of formalin but they don’t care about the other’s health. What is in their mind is only how to get profit.

Considering the reasons, we can make a conclusion that the use of formalin and other preservatives is really a serious problem if it is not resolved immediately.with high costs. Things are getting more and more expensive.
