II. READING COMPREHENSION


A. Directions: Read the following passages below then answer the questions that follow or do what is asked to do.

Many people think that they can get sick by going into cold weather improperly dressed; however, illnesses are
not caused by temperature- they are caused by germs. So while shivering outside in the cold probably won’t
strengthen your immune system, you’re more likely to contract an illness indoors because you will have a greater
exposure to germs.

________6. Based from the paragraph above. Which of the following sentences state the causes why people get sick?
A. People are exposed to germs.
B. People don’t dress properly for the weather.

C. Illnesses are caused by germs.
D. People will have greater exposure to germs.
B. Directions: Read the paragraph inside the box. Complete the information needed in the graphic organizer below it.

Students are not allowed to chew gum in my class. While some students think that I am just being mean,
there are many good reasons for this rule. First, some irresponsible students make messes with their gum. They may
leave it on the bottoms of desks, drop it on the floor, or put it on other people’s property. Another reason why I don’t
allow students to chew gum is because it is a distraction. When they are allowed to chew gum, students are more
worried about having it, popping it, chewing it, and snapping it then they are in listening, writing, reading, and
learning. This is why I don’t allow students to chew gum in my class.

many areas of our life and society.
