Text 1 (For questions 3 – 6)
Since that animals do not wear shoes in the wild, why is it necessary to wear shoes in a
civilized world? There are many explanation. Before the animals were domesticated, they did not
have to carry anything on their backs. Nor pulled any heavy loads. Like a wagon load of wood
weighing tones. After they were domesticated, the situation changed, they were forced to travel
miles on hard roads that wore down their hooves. To overcome this problem, shoes were
introduced to protect and safe guard their hooves when pulling carts.
The thought of having metal shoes nailed on to your feet is enough to make you eerie.
This is how to fix the horse’s shoe but it does not hurt the horse, if done correctly.
For centuries, this is the way to protect horse, mules, and event oxen with iron shoes. A
horse shoe is made of metal plate shaped like a ‘’U’’ and specially cast to fi t the horse’s hoof. In
principal, an ox or a mule is having the same ‘’U’’ shape metal shoe except the size is different
due to the various hoof size from different animals.
Before the automobile age, horses were the only source of transporting people and
goods. Teams of to, four or six large horses were used to pull stage coaches and heavy freight
wagons. Horses, mules and oxen were used on farms to plough rice fields and harvest crops. In
cities and towns, horses pulled milk wagon, bread wagons, and tourist carriage through the
streets.
Blacksmiths made and nailed horse shoe on horse’s feet, because horse hooves grew like our
fingernails. Thus, the horses needed to have their hooves trimmed and their shoes refitted in
every two months.
3. In the passage, the horse needs shoes because ….
A. They help to carry light loads
B. They provided sufficient traction
C. They help it to jump well
D. They provide noise when galloping
E. They live longer

4. Besides being a mode of transport, horses, mules, and oxen were also used to ….
A. Deliver household appliance
B. Replace big trucks and cars
C. Carry animals from place to place
D. Plough land and harvest the crops
E. Be given as dowry to bridegroom in some societies

5. In paragraph 5, why are horse hooves have to be maintained so regularly?


A. The horse suffers from wear and tear.
B. The shoes get rusty.
C. The shoes grow bigger.
D. The hooves are like our teeth
E. The hooves out grow the shoes.

6. ‘’…. They did not have to carry anything on their backs. ‘’ (paragraph 1)
The synonym of the underlined word is …
A. Take’
B. Bring
C. Load
D. Put

Boxing – sport or spectacle ?


Boxing, amongst other hand –to-hand fighting, has been with us for thousands of years.
Originally, it was nothing more than bare fist fighting between two willing ,and sometimes
unwilling , competitors for the entertainment of others. Some people argue that it is relatively
safe, disciplined ,highly skilled ,and technical support that brings enjoyment and employment to
a great many people .Others claim that it is dangerous and barbaric spectacle that has no place
in civilized world. This article will explore each side’s claim in more detail . It will talk about the
damage that can be inflicted when two men stand face-to-face legitimate assault, has no place
in the twenty first century.
The bell goes the two warriors approach each other. They are quick. They are strong. They
are hard. They are ready to hurt and be hurt.
A left fist launches and connects with a nose. The crowds are on their feet. Cheering.
Wanting more. Wanting blood
So, boxing; what’s it all about? All animals, Mostly the males, fight from time to time.
Sometimes it is playing but at other times it is serious . Lots of people, including me, enjoy
watching boxing. It is disgusting at times though, especially when there is a lot of blood and
some boxes died in the ring.
In conclusion, both sides of the debate have solid foundations. As has been shown, the
arguments for and against have been put forward since boxing began. And it would seem, the
argument will continue for at least foreseeable future, as compromise seems unlikely. Both sides
do agree, however, that the debate is better held whilst boxing is licensed and controlled rather
than not. The letter would make it, in my opinion, both sport as well spectacle.

How is dust Useful to Us ?
Most people think text that dust is very harmful to us. But this is not always true. Dust is,
in fact, very useful, and therefore, it is essential to know what dust is and how it is formed .
Every solid substance is composed of very small particles. When these small particles of
matter are scattered, they become dust particles. For example, if we go on breaking a brick or
a-stone into small particles.

carries dust particles from one place to another.
There are different ways by which dust is formed. When solid substance breaks, dust it
formed. Smoke generated by the burning of coal, mood, petrol, etc. also produces dust. Dust
particles also come from dead plants, sea salt, desert, volcanic sand, and many others. The
particles of the earth’s surface also fly in the air in the form of dust.
The biggest use of the dust particles is that they help in the formation of the rains. The
water vapors in the clouds condense on the dust particles in the from of water-drops. These
drops fall on the earth as rains. The absence of dust particles can delay the rain. Likewise, mist,
fog , etc. are also formed due to the presence of dust particles.
