Passage 1
Questions 26-27

The Digestive System


Each time you take a bite of food, your digestive system begins its work. In fact, your digestive system begins working long before you take your first bite. Any time you smell or taste or even think about something good, your body begins to form saliva, or spit. The saliva helps break down the food as you chew it in your mouth.

Your tongue helps by pushing the food back, and your teeth go to work breaking the food up into tiny pieces. The tongue sends the food back to your esophagus. The esophagus is a pipe about 10 inches long. It is a stretchy pipe that brings the food to your stomach.

Your stomach is a sack shaped in the form of the letter J. It is responsible for breaking down the food you have eaten, storing the food, and slowly emptying the liquified food into the small intestine. The stomach churns and mashes all the food together, kind of like a washing machine. The gastric juices in the stomach help break the food down. The food is then sent to the intestines.

The small intestine breaks the food down even more so that your body can absorb the nutrients and vitamins. The food then passes through the large intestine, the colon, and on through the body. Some things you can do to help your digestive system is to drink plenty of water and high fiber foods. Is all of this making you hungry?


26. Why is the stomach likened to a letter of the alphabet?
27. What is the purpose of the third paragraph?
Passage 2
Questions 28-30

The Moon


Many of the planets in our solar systems have satellites. Satellites are objects or items that rotate around a planet. These can be manmade or they can be natural satellites. Did you know the moon is a natural satellite of the Earth? There are moons in this solar system that are larger, but it is still very big. On the other hand, the moon is smaller than the Earth. That is why objects weigh less on the moon than they do on Earth. When the astronauts traveled to the moon, they could float and bounce around because they weighed less on the moon.

The moon does not have any liquid water on it. The moon, however, does have craters, mountain ranges, and lava plains as well as other special features. The inside of the moon is made up of layers. Some of these layers are rock solid while others are molten like lava.

One thing that scientists have learned is that there is no wind on the moon. That is because there is no atmosphere on the moon. Because there is no atmosphere, there is no protection from the sun. The moon can get very hot during the day and very cold at night.

Humans have been able to see the moon since the beginning, but Galileo was the first person to look at the moon close up. He used a telescope to let him see things more closely. Galileo learned a lot of amazing things about the moon.


28. Which paragraph explains the physical features of the moon?
29. What inferences can you make about the moon after reading this passage?
30. Which statement shows the author’s opinion about the moon?
