Dear Sir/Madam, I am writing to complain about an article in last Monday's newspaper, “Schools fail low-income children.” As the Head teacher of one of the largest junior highs I feel strongly that the article does not describe our school. My school has children from many different economic backgrounds, but a large percentage some from lower-income families. Nevertheless, our tests show that the children do well and benefit from the excellent work our teachers do. Last year, our school moved from 24th to 5th place according to the official assessment by the state government. This clearly is not the „failure" that the article suggests. I would be strongly recommend that more careful research should be conducted in the future so that the newspaper will more realisti- cally describe the true situation in our school.

there are strong arguments in favor of online shopping. For some people, particularly working people, they argue that the existence of online shop is very utilitarian in their life. That is because they do not have to go to a market which they may spend much time. Moreover, online shops have offered many types of goods that customers can buy. So, they have many prefe -rences to select the best ones. Furthermore, nowadays, there have been many online shops which put some buyer testimonies on their websites. If consumers feel worried about the quality of goods, they can see and read some testimonies concerning the quality of those goods. Therefore, with the presence of testimo- nies, consumers can easily determine whether the quality of goods is decent or not.

The Dwarf went weeping to the old woman. “How can I lift that heavy stone?” he asked. “If the king can lift it, so can you,” said the old woman, and sent him back to the palace and sure enough, the Dwarf was able to lift the heavy stone.

In the science experiment, we will make a minia- ture bolt of lightning using a balloon, piece of wool, and some metal. We will explore static electricity and what causes lightning. We will learn about electrons, atoms, positive, and nega- tive charges. What to do:

(1) blow up the balloons (2) turn off the light in a room at night and get it as dark as possible (3) rub the balloon rapidly against a piece of wool or wool sweater several times. This will give the balloons a negative charge as elec- trons jump from the wool to the balloon. When rubbing the wool against the balloon, we are creating static electricity and saving it up in the balloon (4) move the balloon close to something metal like a filing cabinet or a door knob (5) Watch for a flash or spark that jumps from the balloon to the metal object just like light- ning Please note: the humidity in the air can affect static electricity. If the air is damp, such as during the winter, then this experiment may not work

Lately, concerns have arisen that Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia, and it‟s immediate surroundings are threatened to experience a clean water crisis by 2025. Clean water, which is produced by two private operators-PAM Lyonnaise Jaya (Palyja) and Aetra Air Jakarta- currently totals 18,7 m 3 per second. However, by 2025, demand for clean water will reach 41,3 m 3 per second as the population of Jakarta is estimated to grow to 14,6 million people from 9,6 million currently (the unofficial figure is possibly much higher). It has been reported that city-owned pro- perty developer Jakarta Propertindo (Jakpro) and city-owned developer Pembangunan Jaya will acquire a combined 100 percent stake in Palyja. If the Jakarta administration has a direct stake in the city water operators, it will increase public supervision on the local clean water industry. PAM Lyonnaise Jaya, which manages the clean water supply in the west side of Jakarta, is a private water operator that is partly controlled by Astra International through it‟s subsidiary Astratel Nusantara. Palyja has been active in Jakarta for about 16 years. However, last year a law suit was filed demanding that the court will annul the agreement between city water operator PAM Jaya and Palyja and Aetra Air Jakarta (Aetra) claiming that public access to affordable clean water has been hindered. Based on information from the World Bank, Indonesia plans to achieve universal clean water access by 2019 but almost half of the population still do not have access to clean water at present.

21. What is the text about? It‟s about ….

(A)

the growth of water supply

(B)

PAM Lyonnaise Jaya

(C)

clean water industry

(D)

city water operators

(E)

“Almost Is Never Enough” (with Nathan Sykes) I'd like to say we gave it a try I'd like to blame it all on life Maybe we just weren't right, but that's a lie, that's a lie And we can deny it as much as we want But in time our feelings will show 'Cause sooner or later We'll wonder why we gave up The truth is everyone knows Almost, almost is never enough So close to being in love If I would have known that you wanted me the way I wanted you Then maybe we wouldn't be two worlds apart But right here in each others arms And we almost, we almost knew what love was But almost is never enough

Rain always comes from clouds. But where do clouds come from? How does all that water get into the sky? Think about your bathroom. There is hot water in your bath. Steam goes up from the hot water. The steam makes small clouds in the bath- room. These warm clouds meet the cold walls and windows, and then we see small drops of water on the walls and windows. The world is like your bathroom. The water in the oceans is warm when the sun shines on it. Some of this water goes up into the sky and makes clouds. The wind carries the clouds for hundreds of kilometres. Then the clouds meet cold air in the sky, and we see drops of water. The drops of water are rain. The rain falls and runs into rivers. Rivers run into oceans. And the water from oceans makes clouds and more rain. So water is always moving from oceans to clouds to rain to rivers to oceans. So the rain on your head was on other heads before!
