This text is for questions 1 to 4.The Good Stepmother
The old witch locked Hansel in a cage and set Gretel to clean the house. She planned to eat them both. Each night the children cried and begged the witch to let them go.
Meanwhile, at home, their stepmother was beginning to wish she had never tried to get rid of the children. “I must find them,”she said and set off into the forest.
Many hours later, when her feet were tired from walking and her lips were dry from thirst, she came to the cottage belonging to the witch. The stepmother peeped through the window. Her heart cried out when she saw the two children.
She picked up the broom leaning against the door and crept inside. The witch was putting some stew in the oven when the stepmother gave her an almighty push. The witch fell into the oven and the stepmother shut the door.
“Children, I have come to save you,” she said, hugging them tightly. “I have done a dreadful
thing. I hope in time you will forgive me. Let me take you home and become a family again.”
They returned to their home and the stepmother became the best mother anyone could wish to have, and of course they lived happily ever after!

My favourite thing is aquarium. It is a place in which aquatic plants and animals, particularly fish, are kept. The term is applied to single tanks for home use in which fish are kept for their decorative effect and interesting habits and to public institutions with tanks for exhibition and scientific study of aquatic life.
I make home aquariums to simulate a natural environment. Aquatic plants supply the oxygen needed by the fish, but often an aerating device is used to furnish additional oxygen. Goldfish enjoy cool water, but the popular tropical fish must have water at a constant temperature of 22°C (72°F) or more. I must keep the water pure and free of algae for long periods by sufficient aeration and by keeping mollusks in the aquarium. A layer of sand or gravel at the bottom of the tank will hold the roots of such important aquatic plants as tape grass, vallisneria spiralis, and aid in the removal of debris. My home aquariums range in size from small fishbowls holding two or three pets to huge tanks.
11. To give additional oxygen, … is used in a home aquarium.
A. a natural environment
B. aquatic plants
C. an aerating device
D. a layer of sand
E. a cool water
12. Which is not needed to stimulate a natural environment in a home aquarium?
A. Putting aquatic plants in the aquarium
B. Using a suitable aerating device
C. Keeping mollusks in the aquarium
D. Removing the debris regularly
E. Keep the constant temperature for particular fish.
13. What is the above passage about?
A. The writer’s home aquariums
B. A natural environment
C. Making an aquarium
