QUESTIONS 16 TO 20

Read the article below. Then answer the questions below.

Good morning everyone. How are you today? I am Mr. Tan, the Advisor to the Junior
Environment Club. I am here to talk about how young people like you can save our Mother Earth.
First, switch off and unplug all electrical gadgets when not in use. If we do not switch off televisions,

computers, laptops or telephone chargers, they would still consume electricity. Therefore, switch
off and unplug the gadgets to save on power consumption.

Next, switch to energy efficient lights. Fluorescent or LED light bulbs last longer and use less
electricity than conventional bulbs. So, switch to energy efficient lights because they are long-

lasting and economical.

You can also collect rain water. You can use it to water plants. Clean drains and porches. Thus,
collecting rain water helps to converse water and save on water bills.

Last but not least, please avoid using disposable items. Plastic cups, bags, and containers take

a minimum of 20 years to decompose. You can use your own bags or refuse to accept plastic bags
when shopping. Hence, you can reduce the amount of waste going into landfills.

To conclude, I hope you as the next generation would protect and save our Mother Earth.

1) When we unplug gadgets, it helps to ....................... power consumption.

(a) increase (b) reduce (c) stabilize (d) remove

2) The speech above is about ................................


(a) preserving the forest (c) saving the environment
(b) reuse and recycle (d) natural disaster

3) Which of these below does not decompose easily?


(a) plastic bags (c) glass bulb
(b) metal ruler (d) ceramic cup

4) All the activities below help us to save Mother Earth except


(a) reduce the use of electronic equipments.
(b) walk or ride to your destination.
(c) encourage the use of plastic cups and plastic plate
