Andy heard from his friends that a comet was coming. He knew that a comet was a space rock. Space rocks seemed exciting. He wanted to watch it at night. All he had to do was go outside and watch. That was easy enough.

That night, he put on a jacket and went outside. He looked around. He saw the moon, but he did not see anything else. There were only a couple clouds, so that was not the problem. He could see some stars, but nothing new or special. Where was the comet?

He called his friend on the phone. They talked about it. His friend told him where to look, but he still didn’t see it. What was going on? Was he not special enough to see it? Were his eyes going bad? What was he doing wrong?

Andy went to get his dad. Together, they looked up in the sky where it was supposed to be. Finally, after several minutes of looking, he saw a fuzzy thing, brighter and bigger than a star, but nowhere near what he expected.

“I thought it’d be like an extra moon or something.” Andy complained.

“It’s not big enough for that, and it still might be very far away.” Dad explained.

“I still wish I could see it better.”

Dad nodded and went inside. When he came back out, he had a telescope. Together, they focused in and saw the comet a little better. It wasn’t much, but it helped.

“What else can we see?” Andy wondered.

Dad smiled and aimed the telescope over at the moon instead. That was cool. Seeing the craters and the details of the moon up closer was nice.

Astronomy was interesting. Andy made sure to read more about it at school!

I loved lasagne. It all began when I was three years old. I flew to Australia with my parents on Singapore Airlines.

Since then, whenever we eat out in an Italian restaurant, I’ve chosen lasagne.


Sure, I really hated fish. My mother loved it, so we had it almost every day. Although she cooked different dishes such as steamed fish, fried fish, or fish soup, I still didn’t like the taste, the smell, or anything about it. The strange thing is that I liked fish nuggets at Kuick, and I had them sometimes on Sundays.


My job involves travelling a lot, so I treasure any meal with my parents at home. It’s our happiest time when we can gather together and share a lot of things. I love eating at home also because my mother is a great cook who can create unusual dishes with everyday ingredients.

Do you ever think about what schools will be like in the future? Many people think that students will study most regular classes such as maths, science and history online.

VIII. Read the passage and choose the correct answer to each question.

We will probably never know who first sold a beef inside a bun, but there are lots of

contenders for having invented something similar. Genghis Khan and his army of Mongol horsemen used to snack on raw beef which they kept underneath their saddles. They also ground meat from lamb or mutton. This was fast food for busy warriors on horseback at that time. When the Mongols invaded Russia, the snack became known as “Steak Tartare”. In the 17th and 18th centuries trade between Germany and Russia gave rise to the “Tartare steak”, while the “Hamburg steak” became popular with German sailors along the New York City harbor.

It’s speculated that the first “Hamburger steak” was served at Delmonico’s Restaurant in New York City in 1834, but not in a bun. In 1885 Charlie “Hamburger” Nagreen served flattened meatballs between two slices of bread. As late as 1904 Fletcher Davis of Athens, Texas, attracted much attention when he sold his hamburgers at the St. Louis World’s Fair. Davis’s claim to having originated the hamburger has been supported by both McDonalds and Dairy Queen.

Brothers Frank and Charles Menches may also have made a major contribution to hamburger history: they sold ground pork sandwiches at the Erie Country Fair in New York, but one day in 1885, they were forced to use chopped beef because their butcher had run out of pork. They mixed in some coffee and brown sugar to beef up the taste and sold their “Hamburger Sandwiches”. The name “Hamburger” came from Hamburg, New York, the location of the fair.

31. What was the Menches’ contribution to hamburger history?

A. They began to use chopped pork.                         

B. They changed the taste of pork.

C. They began to ground pork for sandwiches.         

D. They used another meat and added flavors.

32. Which of the following is NOT stated about the Mongols in paragraph 2?

A. They kept lambs and mutton nearby.                    

B. They used to eat non-cooked meat.

C. They occupied the Russian territories.                  

D. They used to eat while riding a horse.

33. Where did “hamburger” get its name from?

A. A place                  

B. The Germans                     

C. A man                    

D. A fair

34. Which of the following is stated in the passage?

A. Hamburger was first served in Germany.

B. Sailors brought hamburger steak to New York.

C. Tartare stake became popular in the 17th century.

D. Minced beef appeared in the 15th century.

35. Who was “hamburger steak” invented by, according to paragraph 3?

A. Fletcher Davis                                                       

B. Delmonico                         

C. Charlie “Hamburger” Nagreen                             

D. McDonalds
