Question 4

Read the text below.

Dengue fever is contracted from the bite of a striped Aedes aegypti mosquito . The mosquito
flourishes during rainy seasons but can breed in water-filled flower pots, plastic bags, and cans year-
round. One mosquito bite can cause the disease.
The virus is not contagious and cannot be spread directly from person to person. It is
mosquito-borne, so there must be a person-to-mosquito-to-another-person pathway. The full life
cycle of the virus involves the mosquito as the vector (transmitter) and the human as the source of
infection.
The symptoms are headache, fever, exhaustion, severe muscle and joint pain, swollen lymph
nodes(lymphadenopathy), itchy rash, and headache . Other signs of dengue fever include bleeding
gums, severe pain behind the eyes, and red palms and soles.
There are currently no vaccines for dengue fever. The best way to prevent the disease is to
avoid being bitten by Aedes mosquitoes. Although there is no certain treatment for dengue, it can be
treated as long as it is caught before developing into dengue shock syndrome or dengue hemorrhagic
fever. Prevention is the most important step, and prevention means avoiding mosquito bites. If a
clinical diagnosis is made early, a health care provider can effectively treat Dengue Hemorrhagic
Fever (DHF) using fluid replacement therapy.
People can get more information on Disease Control and Prevention by surfing this website

Question 5
Read the poem below carefully. Then, answer questions (a) – (d)

The Day the Bulldozers Came

The day the bulldozers came


Rooks were building
Crazy egg baskets in the oaks
Green flies sizzled by the pond
And a cold-eyed toad

Waited for them.

The day the bulldozers came


Squirrels were scattering
Up tree trunks,
And leapt from branches
That were hardly there.

The fox

Stirred in his sleep

As the ground trembled.

‘Ha ha!’ he thought,


‘I’m quite safe,

Deep down in the Earth,

(a) What is being constructed in


Notheone
trees?
can get me here.’

Then the bulldozer came.
