Choose the correct answer by giving bold  a,b,c  or  d at the answer sheet!
WHAT IS THUNDER?
Thunder sounds like an explosion. Lightning causes thunder. The sound comes from air that suddenly gets very hot.
A bolt of lightning can make the air around it as hot as 18,000° Fahrenheit (10,000° Celsius). That’s hotter than the surface of the Sun! The hot air rushes away from the lightning bolt. The air rushing away makes the loud sound of thunder.
You often hear the thunder after you see a bolt of lightning. This is because sound travels slower than light. The farther away the lightning is, the longer it takes for you to hear the thunder. You can tell how far away the lightning is. You can count the seconds between the lightning and the sound of the thunder it makes. Sound travels about 1 mile (about 1.6 kilometers) every 5 seconds. If you count slowly to 5 and hear thunder, the lightning bolt was about 1 mile away. If you count to 15 before you hear thunder, the lightning bolt was 3 miles away.

Andreas was a student of the University of Indonesia. Like many other students, he did not have much money because his grant was just enough to live on.
       Last year, during the semester holiday, he decided to go to Surabaya. He wanted to visit some friends there. Unfortunately, he could not afford a bus ticket, and even the train was too expensive. He, therefore, decided to hitchhike. He caught a bus to reach the highway and waited. It was a cold, rainy December day. While he was waiting, he got soaked to the skin.
       After waiting for hours, he finally got a lift from a truck driver, who was going to Surabaya. Andreas felt extremely relieved. The truck driver, a reasonably well-dressed man of around 35 seemed friendly. He and Andreas talked a lot.
       Suddenly, as they were driving along the highway, a police car raced past them and made them stop. They were taken to the police station because the police suspected that the truck was carrying stolen goods.

MAKING CANDLES
Making coloured and scented candles is really quick and simple. What's more, you'll save so much money. If making candles is easy, why do you ever buy one from a shop? What you need in making candles are wax, moulds, wick, dye discs, essential oils, and a double boiler. All these materials are available from craft shops. Or if you do not want to buy them, you can improvise with an old saucepan, Pyrex jug, or even a sturdy can, in a pot of water. After providing the materials, follow this procedure or instruction in making candles!

First of all, melt the wax. All wax has a flash point, so to prevent it from bursting into flames; you must melt it in a double boiler, with water at the bottom of the pan.
Then, prepare the mould with the wick. Thread the wick through the mould and make sure that you leave a good few centimeters sticking out of the hole in the bottom.
After that, add the scent. If you want a scented candle, add a few drops of essential oil to the melted wax. You can use any essential oil you like, as long as it doesn't contain water.
Next step, pour the wax into the mould. Try and tip the wax into the mould quickly, all in one go, to minimize spillage and air bubbles.
Then, release the bubbles and top it up. Releasing the air bubbles will eventually make the candle sink, so you will need to top it up with more melted wax.
Finally, remove it from the mould. After four or five hours, the candle can be taken out of its mould.
Your candle is now ready for display. Remember, you must always leave it for a day before lighting it.

14. What does paragraph one tell us about?
A.   The steps in making candles.
B.   The materials we need in making candles.
C.   The goal of the text in making candles.
D.   The way to make candles.

15.  What should you do after melting the wax?
A.      Pour the melting wax into the mould.
B.      Remove the melting wax from the mould.
C.      Prepare the mould with the wick.
D.      Release the bubbles and top it up.


16. Where can you buy the materials for making candles?
A.      At the handicraft shop.
B.      At the super market.
C.      At the stall.
D.      At the craft shop.
       
17. “…, so to prevent it from bursting into flames you …”
The word  “bursting” means …
A.         exploding
B.         melting
C.         satisfying
D.         becoming
