Choose the best option A, B, C or D to answer the question :
How can scientist predict earthquakes? Earthquakes are not scattered anywhere
but happen in certain areas. They happen in places of the earth’s surface meet. This
pattern causes them to shake the same places many times. For example, earthquakes
often occur on the west - coast of North and South America, around the
Mediterranean Sea, and along the Pacific coast of Asia.
Another way to predict earthquakes is to look for changes in the earth’s surface
like a sudden drop of water level in the ground. Some people say animals can predict
earthquakes. Before earthquakes people have seen chickens sitting in trees, fish
jumping out of water, snakes leaving their holes and other animals acting strangely.
After an earthquake happens, people can die from lack of food, water and
medical supplies. The amount of destruction caused by an earthquake depends on
where it happens, and how strong it is. It also depends on types of buildings, soil
conditions and population. Of the 6000 earthquakes in the earth each year, only about
fifteen cause great damage and many deaths.

B. the east - coast of South America
C. the Pacific coast of Asia
D. the coast of Australia

A. changes in the earth’s surface
B. water beneath the earth’s surface
C. drops of water
D. water currents

The Olympic Games originated in 776 B.C. in Olympia, a small town in Greece.
Participants in the first Olympiad are said to have run 200-yard race, but as the Games were
held every four years, they expended in scope. Only Greek amateurs were allowed to
participate in this festival in honor of the God Zeus. The event became a religious, patriotic
and athletic occasion where winners were honored with wreaths and special privileges.
There was a profound change in the nature of the Games under the Roman emperors. After
they became professional circuses and carnivals, they were banned in 394 A.D. by Emperor
The modern Olympic Games began in Athens in 1896 as a result of the initiative of
Baron Pierre de Coubertin, a French educator whose desire was to promote international
understanding through athletics. Nine nations participated in the first Games; over 100
nations currently compete.
The taint of politics and racial controversy, however, has impinged upon the Olympic
Games in our epoch. In 1936 Hitler, whose country hosted the Games, affronted Jesse
Owens, a black American runner, by refusing to congratulate Owens for the feat of having
won four gold medals. In the 1972 Munich Games, the world was appalled by the
deplorable murder of eleven Israeli athletes by Arab terrorists. The next Olympic Games in
Montreal were boycotted by African nations; in addition, Taiwan withdrew.
