Test On Style

1. What is style? Well, it’s a word with many meanings. It usually has something with the way you look. But is style the same as fashion?
2.Not exactly. If we say somebody is fashionable we mean they dress well and in the latest clothes. When we say someone ‘has style’ it is something more personal. A person can wear very old-fashioned clothes and still have style.
3.Someone once defined the difference like this: “People who follow fashion tell who they would like to be. People with style tell you who they are.”
4.The way we look tells other people a lot about us. This is true of everybody from the fashionable lady to the punk. A soldier’s uniform tells us about what he does. The elegant lady’s fur coat tells us that she is wealthy.

Nutrition exam

Read the text carefully then do the activities.
          Nutrition is the science that deals with food and how the body uses it. People, like all living things, need food to live. Food supplies the energy for every action we perform, from reading a book to running a race. Food also provides substances that the body needs to build and repair its tissues and to regulate its organs and systems.
          What we eat directly affects our health. A proper diet helps prevent certain illnesses and aids in recovery from others. An improper or inadequate diet increases the risk of various diseases. Eating a balanced diet is the best way to ensure that the body receives all the food substances it needs. Nutrition

economy and corruption

There are many activities and behaviours that affect the economy of a country. Corruption, tax evasion, and absenteeism are just a few examples. When a mayor who received a bribe signs a contract for a project with the least skilled and the least demanding contractor, he will unavoidably cause enormous damage to the nation. Poorly done, the final work will last only a few months before requiring repairs more costly to the public treasury. When a trader works illegally and pays no taxes, he will grow richer quickly, but at the expense of honest traders and the nation. The first will then face unfair competition, and the second will suffer a revenue shortfall that could be used to finance some projects. When an employee, regardless of position, is often absent without reason, he will affect the good functioning of the sector in which he works, and in turn he will harm the whole nation. For all these reasons, we all ought to commit ourselves to the fight against these phenomena in order to prevent that our country sinks into inextricable crises.

fake medecines exam

  Read the text carefully then do the activities     

          The United Nations has sent out a warning that up to fifty per cent of prescription medicines sold in developing world pharmacies are fake. A report from the International Narcotics Control Board, the UN drugs watchdog, said fake medicines are flooding into poorer countries. It stated that the consequences of people taking these drugs can be deadly. It also warned that the trade in fake prescription drugs may soon overtake the trade in illegal drugs. Many of the resources of the world’s law enforcement agencies are focused on hard drugs like heroin and cocaine. The UN suggests a refocus so that poor nations can fight the trade in counterfeit prescription drugs. The biggest problem for developing countries is that their laws are too old to control the flood, especially for sales over the Internet and those delivered by mail.

employment and education

 A/Comprehension   (07pts)
Read the text carefully then do the activities

       In America, people are afraid of unemployment. There is a direct link between employment and education. There is a saying: “Improve your schools or lose your jobs”. Many governors of states agreed to the development of common standards in essential subjects. America which spends a quarter of trillion dollars a year on education, finds itself classed 13th compared to other developed countries. This has a bad consequence on business. People who have a better education, have better jobs and get better pay. Countries that have better educational systems have stronger economies and can compete in the world market place.

‘Parents Against Obesity’ exam

Read the text carefully, then do the following activities

          Today the pressure group ‘Parents Against Obesity’ sent a detailed report of their concerns to the government along with more than 50.000 signatures asking for tighter controls against the food industry’s advertising directly into the children’s market.
          Beginning with a statement outlining what it sees as the main causes of obesity in children, the report covers various areas in which it proposes tougher control and action against what it calls “ an overwhelming campaign to persuade children to eat precisely what they need the least.”
         Principally, the report believes that advertising fast food and high-sugar snacks during children’s television programmes encourages children to desire and consume foods which offer
