Questions no 1 7 are based on the passage below
Diamond value is based on four characteristics: carat, color, clarity, and
cut. The size of a diamond is measured by carat weight. There are 100 points in a
carat and 142 carats in an ounce. Each point above 1 carat is more valuable than
each one below 1 carat. In other words, a stone that weighs more than 1 carat is
more valuable per point than a stone that is smaller than 1 carat.
The scale used for rating color begins with D, which means the germ is
absolutely colorless and, therefore, the most valuable. E and F are almost
colorless. All three are good for investment purposes. A stone rated between G
and J is good for jewelry. Beyond J the stones take a slightly yellowish color,
which gets deeper as the grade declines.
The clarity of a stone is determined by its lack of carbon spots, inner flaws,
and surface blemishes. While most of these are invisible to the unaided eye, they
do affect the diamonds brilliance. For jewelry, a diamond rated VVS1 (very, very
slight imperfections) is as close to flawless as one will find. After that the scale
goes to VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, SI2, I1, I2, and so on.
The final characteristic is cut. When shaped whether round, oval,
emerald, marquise, pear, or heart the diamond should be faceted so that light
is directed into the depths of the prism and then reflected outward again. A well-
cut diamond will separate the light into different colors when the light is
reflected. Only stones of similar shape should have their reflective qualities
compared, as some shapes are more reflective than others. The round shape is
the most reflective.

The life cycle of a plant includes several stages. From seed germination
to photosynthesis to flower to seed dispersal, the life cycle is designed to
maximize the plant's potential for continued survival from season to season.
Plant life begins with seed germination. Most seeds need warm, moist
soil for proper germination. During germination, seeds begin to sprout roots and
what are called cotyledon leaves. Cotyledon leaves start the process of
photosynthesis, allowing the plant to process light into food.
Many gardeners grow plants to enjoy the beauty of their flowers.
However, flowering is an essential part of the plant's life cycle. It is inside the
flower that a seed is pollinated, either by human hand or by various insects
such as bees, butterflies and moths. Flowers have both male parts, called
stamens, and female parts, called pistils. Pollination occurs when pollen moves
from the stamen to the pistil. Proper pollination allows the plant to produce
fruit, then seeds.
The fruit of a plant is also the seed pods. People pick and eat the fruit on
vegetable plants such as beans, squash, pumpkins and peas before they have a
chance to disperse the seeds inside the pod. However, if left undisturbed, the
fruit will eventually turn into a seed pod.
At the end of a plant's life cycle, it again produces seeds for the next
season. Seeds are dispersed in numerous ways. Some plants produce pods that
burst open, dropping seeds to the ground. Other seeds are dispersed by the
wind. Dandelions are particularly known for their white tufts of seeds carried by
the wind. Animals also aid in seed dispersal by eating, digesting and excreting
the seed, or by carrying the seeds on their fur until they drop to the ground.
After a plant disperses its seed, it dies. Some plants complete their life
cycle in one year. These plants are called annuals. Other plants germinate and
grow in one year, but will not produce flowers and seeds until the second year.
These plants are called biennials. Perennials are plants that live for three years
or more. These plants complete the processes of germination, growth, flowering
and seed each year, but do not die after they disperse their seeds. Instead,
they go dormant, typically through the winter, then begin the next season by
growing and flowering again. (adapted from www.gardenguides.com)

Questions no 45 50 are based on the passage bellow


Child Abuse is intentional acts that result in physical or emotional harm to
children. The term child abuse covers a wide range of behavior, from actual
physical assault by parents or other adult caretakers to neglect of a childs basic
needs.

Page | 5
EAP Quiz
Instructor: Amin Nur Hidayati, S.S
Physical abuse includes deliberate acts of violence that injure or even kill a
child. Unexplained bruises, broken bones, or burn marks on a child may be signs
of physical abuse.
Sexual abuse occurs when adults use children for sexual gratification or
expose them to sexual activities. Sexual abuse may begin with kissing or
fondling and progress to more intrusive sexual acts, such as oral sex and vaginal
or anal penetration.
Emotional abuse destroys a childs self-esteem. Such abuse commonly
includes repeated verbal abuse of a child in the form of shouting, threats, and
degrading or humiliating criticism. Other types of emotional abuse are
confinement, such as shutting a child in a dark closet, and social isolation, such
as denying a child friends.
The most common form of child abuse is neglect. Physical neglect involves
a parents failure to provide adequate food, clothing, shelter, or medical care to
a child. It may also include inadequate supervision and a consistent failure to
protect a child from hazards or danger. Emotional neglect occurs when a parent
or caretaker fails to meet a childs basic needs for affection and comfort.
Examples of emotional neglect include behaving in a cold, distant, and
unaffectionate way toward a child, allowing a child to witness chronic or severe
spousal abuse, allowing a child to use alcohol or drugs, and encouraging a child
to engage in delinquent behavior. Another form of neglect involves failing to
meet a childs basic education needs, either by failing to enroll a child in school
or by permitting a child to skip school frequently.
