Read the following passage and then choose the best answer A, B, C or D.
Glass is a remarkable substance made from simplest raw materials. It can be colored or colorless, monochrome or polychrome, transparent, translucent or opaque. It is lightweight impermeable to liquids, readily cleaned and reused, durable yet fragile, and often very beautiful. Glass can be decorated in multiple ways and its optical properties are exceptional. In all its myriad forms-as table ware, containers, in architecture and design-glass represents a major achievement in the history of technological developments.
Since the Bronze Age about 3,000 B.C, glass has been used for making various kinds of objects. It was first made from a mixture of silica, line and an alkali such as soda or potash, and these remained the basic ingredients of glass until the development of lead glass in the seventeenth century. When heated, the mixture becomes soft, and malleable and can be formed by various techniques into a vast array of shapes and sizes. The homogeneous mass is thus formed by melting then cooling to create glass, but in contrast to most materials formed in this way (metals, for instance), glass lacks the crystalline structure normally associated with solids, and instead retains the random molecular structure of a liquid. In effect, as molten glass cools, it progressively stiffens until rigid, but does so without setting up a network of interlocking crystals customarily associated with that process. This is why glass shatters so easily when dealt a blow, why glass deteriorates over time, especially when exposed to moisture, and why glassware must be slowly reheated and uniformly cooled after manufacture to release internal stresses induced by uneven cooling.
Another unusual feature of glass is the manner in which its viscosity changes as it turns from a cold substance into a hot, ductile liquid. Unlike metals that flow or “freeze” at specific temperatures, glass progressively softens as the temperature rises, going through varying stages of malleability until it flows like a thick syrup. Each stage of malleability allows the glass to be manipulated into various forms, by different techniques, and if suddenly cooled the object retains the stage achieved at that point. Glass is thus amenable to a greater number of heat-forming techniques than most other materials.

Read the following passage and then choose the best answer A, B, C or D.
Comets are bodies that move around in space. They are something likes stars or small planets that move around the sun. Comets are surrounded by gases and the sun makes those gases look very bright. Dust can get caught in the gas around the comet and make the comet look like it has a tails.
Halley’s Comet is the most famous comet, but we can’t see it very often. In fact, it can only be seen from the Earth when it moves close the sun. This means that this beautiful comet only comes into our sky every 77 years or so. The last time Halley’s Comet was invisible from the Earth was in 1991. Did you see it?
Halley’s Comet was named after the English astronomer Edmond Halley. An astronomer studies the star and planets in the solar system. Edmond Halley was born in London, England, in 1656. He studies astronomy at Oxford University. In 1676, he left the university to study the astronomy of the Southern Hemisphere. He wrote a brook about the arrangement of the stars in the sky and the movement of the planets. He made the first accurate map of the stars we see in the sky. He also observed the moon and studied how the Moon affects the ocean tides. He helped find a way to measure distances in space. This measurement was used by other scientists to learn about the size of our solar system and the distances of many star and planets from the Earth.
Halley especially liked to study comets. He read about comets and observed them in the sky. He learned about the way they moved around the Sun — each comet follows a different path around the Sun and travels at its own speed. The path and speed of a body as it moves in space is called its orbit. Halley calculated the orbits of comets that he read about or saw himself. He found the orbits for twenty-four comets.
Halley also noticed that the paths of a comet seen in 1531 and of a comet seen in 1607 were identical to the path of a comet he had observed in 1682. He concluded that these three comets were, in fact, the same comet. Halley predicted that the comet would come again in 1758, and it did! This comet was named “Halley’s Comet” and can be seen from Earth. The first reports of this comet in history were made in 240 B.C. by Chinese astronomers, so we know that it has been orbiting the Sun to more than 2,000 years. Halley’s Comet is not the only comet in our sky, but it is the only one that appears regularly and can be predicted. It is also one of the brightest comets, and people can see it without a telescope.
Like comets, the Earth also travels around the Sun. Sometimes the orbit of t Earth passes through the path of Hailey’s Comet. Like comets, the Earth also travels around the Sun. Sometimes the orbit of the Earth passes through the path of Hailey’s Comet. When this When this happens, dust left behind from the comet falls to Earth. The dust burns and makes brilliant lights like falling stars in the sky. You can see this happen every year in May and October. Astronomers predict that Hailey’s Comet will enter our sky again in 2061. Who do you think will see it?
