the “Kathleen May‟ out to the rolling waves of the North Sea and then on its journey up to
coast of Greenland. As my father got to the top of the mast he turned to wave and we
jumped up and down excitedly.

For a moment I saw my mother smile and then her expression changed and she
wiped her eyes again. I tried not to cry but tears streamed down my face. I wiped my face on
the sleeve of my long yellow dress and squeezed my mother‟s hand even tighter.

After that the large white sail fell, opened up and it billowed out with the wind inside it.
Within seconds the speed of the boat increased and she was suddenly away from the
harbour and cutting through the white topped waves. My father could no longer be seen but I
still waved.

The next thing I remembered was being part of the crowd as it turned and headed
away back up the hill towards our house. We walked in silence, the only noise being the
shuffling of feet on the wet cobbles. Mother kissed my head, smiled and I knew we were
going to be just fine until father returned in two months‟ time.

Monorail is a type of railway that has a track that is a single rail. Monorails are used for
passenger railway transport but they are also used in airport transfer and for medium
capacity metros.

Monorail became more popular from the 1980s, with a rise in urbanization and traffic. Japan,
one of the earliest users of monorail has one of the busiest monorails: Tokyo Monorail. It
serves over 127,000 passengers per day and since it began its operation in 1964 it has
served more than 1.5 billion passengers. Now, modern monorail systems are built in China,
India and Malta (which plans the longest monorail network in the world.)

Today, the most common type of monorail is the straddle-beam. In this variant, train
straddles a steel or reinforced concrete beam that is between 0.5 to 1 m wide. Carriage
transfers the movement to the beam with traction of rubber tires. This also stabilizes the

Epcot is a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida. The park's
name, EPCOT, is an acronym for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, a
utopian city of the future planned by Walt Disney, often interchanging "city" and "community."
It is owned and operated by the Walt Disney Company through its Parks and Resorts
division.

Inspired by an unrealized concept developed by Walt Disney, the park opened on October 1,
1982 and was the second of four theme parks built at Walt Disney World, after the Magic
Kingdom. Spanning 300 acres (120 ha), more than twice the size of the Magic Kingdom
park,
Epcot is dedicated to the celebration of human achievement,namely
technological innovation and international culture,andis oftenreferred to as a
"permanent world's fair".

The park is divided into two sections: Future World, made up of eight pavilions, and World
Showcase, themed to 11 world nations. The World Showcase usually opens two hours after
park opening and remains open later than the Future World section of the park. Most major
attractions in Future World remain open until the park's closing time. A secondary park gate
is located between the France and United Kingdom pavilions of World Showcase and is
known as the International Gateway. The International Gateway is directly accessible to
guests arriving from the nearby Epcot Area Resorts and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

In 2015, the park hosted about 11.98 million guests, ranking it the third-most-visited theme
park in North America and the sixth-most-visited theme park in the world. The park is
represented by Spaceship Earth, a geodesic sphere that also serves as an attraction. Epcot

Questions 42 – 44 refer to the following information.

Ibtihaj Muhammad was born on December 4, 1985 in Maplewood, New Jersey. She is one of
five children born to parents Eugene and Denise Muhammad. From a young age,
Muhammad had a competitive streak and loved sports. However, participating in sports at
school sometimes conflicted with her religious observance to dress modestly. Often when
playing sports, her mother Denise had to alter the uniforms to add long sleeves or covering
for her legs. When she was 13, Muhammad and her mother discovered fencing when they
saw a high school fencing team practice as they drove home. "The kids were wearing their
long pants and hats, and my mom just thought, 'This is perfect,'" Muhammad said. "That's
where it all began." Fencing was an ideal opportunity to participate in sports while wearing a
hijab. Unlike when she played other sports, she also did not feel out of place amongst her
teammates.

Muhammad attended Maplewood‟s Columbia High School, where she excelled and became
captain of the fencing team for two years and helped win two state championships. Ibtihaj
Muhammad attended Duke University on a scholarship. She graduated in 2007 with dual
bachelor‟s degrees in international relations and African-American studies with a minor in
Arabic. During her first year at college in 2004, she earned All-America honors with a record
of 49-8. From there, she went on to place second at the mid-Atlantic/South Regional and
21st at the Junior Olympics. The following year, she finished 11th for saber at the NCAA
Championships, and earned her second consecutive All-America honors. A third would come
in 2006.

In 2009, Muhammad elevated her training when she was coached by the 2000 U.S.
Olympian, Akhi Spencer-El. That same year, she won a national title. Since then Muhammad
has become a five-time Senior World Team medalist. She helped her team take home gold
for the United States in 2014 in Kazan, Russia. Throughout her career, she has earned
numerous medals for both team and individual events on the World Cup circuit. In 2012,
Muhammad was named Muslim Sportswoman of the year. In 2016, Muhammad earned a
spot on the U.S. Saber Fencing Team for the Olympics in Rio. She is the first Muslim woman
to wear a hijab, a traditional Muslim headscarf, to represent the United States at the
Olympics.
