Questions no. 15 and 18 refer to the following text.

Dear Rossa,
I am a guy, twenty-eight years old. I have a problem with a girlfriend. She is twenty-five years
old. We have been dating each other for years, since we were high school student. Now we have
jobs. I feel very sure that we love each other. Now it is time for me to get married. Unfortunately,
her parents never approve our relationship ever since the very first time. My family, anyhow, does
not really mind. At first I thought my girlfriend had the power to defend our love. But then she
surrendered. She loves me and she loves her family too. On the one hand she said, “I’ll be happy
if my family is happy.” It means she had to get approval from her parents.
For this, I was shocked. My heart was broken. She ended our relationship just at the time when I
was ready to marry her. When I was with her, we were very happy. We had a lot in common and
there were no conflict. The truth was, we separated only because of her parents. They want her
to marry her cousin, her aunt’s son (this is one of the traditions in the Karonese).
For the being I am very upset. When I miss her I call her. Then we can eat together, talk together.
The real problem is, she cannot refuse what her parents want.
So, should I forget my girlfriend, the only one that I truly love? Or else, should I just wait, and
dream that one day she will be back to me?

Once upon a time, there was a poor widow who had an only son named Jack. They were so
poor that they didn’t have anything except a cow. When the cow had grown too old, his mother
sent Jack to the cattle market to sell it. On the way to the market, Jack met a butcher who had
some beautiful beans in his hand. The butcher told the boy that the beans were of great value
and persuaded the silly offer to sell the cow for the beans.
Jack brought them happily. When he told his mother about this, his mother became so angry
and she threw the beans out of the window. When Jack woke up in the morning, he felt the sun
shining into a part of his room but all the rest was quite dark and shady.

Silkworms live for only two or three days after laying eggs. About 36,000 to 50,000 eggs are laid,
and these are carefully stored at the silkworm farm until they are ready to hatch. The eggs hatch
into caterpillars, which feed on mulberry leaves. Soon the caterpillars are ready to spin their
cocoons. Not all caterpillars can spin silk cocoons. Only the caterpillars of a silkworm moth
known as “Bombyx mori” can do such spinning.
This caterpillar has special glands which secrete liquid silk through its lower lip. The liquid
produced later hardens to form thin strands. The caterpillar makes its cocoons using these
strands. The threads on the outside of the cocoons are rough, while those inside are soft and
Some fully-spun cocoons are heated. This kills the pupa inside. The cocoons are then put into
hot water to loosen the fine threads. Finally, these threads are reeled out the cocoons. The

The sense of taste is one of a person’s five senses. We taste with the help of taste buds
on the tongue.
There are four main kinds of taste: sweet, sour, salty, and bitter. All other taste are just
mixture of two or more of these main types.
The surface of the tongues has more than fifteen thousand taste buds (or cells). These
are connected to the brain by special nerves which send the so-called taste messages.
When the tongue comes into contact with food of any kind, the taste buds will pick up the
taste. The nerves then send a message to the brain. This will make us aware of the taste. This
happens in just a few seconds.
There are four kinds of taste buds, each of which is sensitive to only a particular taste.
These four groups are located in different parts of the tongue.
The taste buds for salty and sweet taste are found round the tip of the tongue and along
its sides. Sour taste can be picked up only at the sides of the tongue. The taste buds of the bitter
taste are found at the innermost edge of the tongue. There are taste buds at the center of the
The sentence of smell and sight can affect taste. The delicious smell of food increases its
taste. Similarly, attractive colors can make food appear tastier and more delicious. If food does
not smell good or is dull-colored, it will not look tasty and may not taste good at all.

too cold, when placed in the mouth, will have no taste at all.
